Track Name: Left Hand Path
Left Hand Path

Abandon hope all ye who
set foot upon my pathway
Think well for you must now choose
the color of your last days
Hear my warning my child
Many falter and fall

By many names am I called
a truth obscure and hidden
I mix the light with darkness
the first and last word written
The Lord of Flies waiting
The book of names open

From miles away I saw you, standing
Two eyes alone in darkness, searching
Don't be afraid to wander, reaching
Follow my voice to freedom, listen

You fool, you holy wonder, rising
The cosmic trigger forming, building
The light that goes before you, shining
The shell that used to hold you, dying

Reverse the Sun and Moon
and surrender to confusion
The space that lies between us
is only an illusion
Track Name: Lost at Sea
Lost at Sea

Counting the minutes by counting the waves
the point and the line are not separate today
No more distinction between sky and sea
Above and below, swallowing me
All shores are equal but none of them near
All is a circle, the center is here

Time stand still
Take me home

Triton embrace me now, come unto me
Empty my blood, replace it with sea
Measure my body but cut me no stone
Dig me no grave, sing me no songs
Go down to the shore, write my name in the sand
Let the waves take away all that I have

Come for me
Tide and moon

Come darkness, come comforting cold
Surround me, swallow me whole
No sorrow, no rapture, no joy
Close your eyes
See no more
Track Name: Gravity

One hundred million Suns
One hundred million years
and I

The architect of skies
The music of the spheres
and I

I know the way out
Track Name: Mandrake

An unnamed shadow moves across this land
Whispered rumors, curses from the hidden hand
Red horizon tells of days to come
No turning back, some things cannot be undone
And I will stand and speak this truth to you
Prepare for war

You dulled my senses, drove stakes through my spine
Your words are poison, hidden in a bitter wine
You move in darkness, I still see your face
I cast you out, now I know your name
And I see that you think you'll walk away
Prepare for war

Draw breath and pull back and take aim and never question why
Take steel and rise up and swing down and come around again
I'm truth and I'm death and I've come for those who think you're conquered me

I am the tide
I am the sky
Track Name: Baptistina

How can we exit this wasted land
moving through forests of razor wire?
No voice to guide us, and no light to see
nothing but lies from the mouth of fire

This doomed procession just wanders and wails
our numbers are faltering, failing, falling
Time is a tyrant, a prison, a curse
hands to the sky now, voices calling

Baptistina, come again
transform the night into day
Second Sun, chosen one
Take all these sorrows away

I had a vision, I saw the truth
all the hairs counted, the grains of sand numbered
Millions and millions all lined in a row
a voice from the deep was calling them under

The cosmic alembic will come to its pitch
the elements mixing, changing, running
All of the colors will bleed into one
the fire in the sky is the savior coming

Baptistina, come again
transform the night into day
Second Sun, chosen one
burn all these sorrows away
Track Name: Solomon's Temple
Solomon's Temple

I have seen far beyond the gaze was given to me
Everything all at once, all things interlocking
Shadow voice speak secret words, full of understanding
Remove the shroud and roll the stone, and release me now

Cataract confusion, whispered curses, pain collector
Cloud my eyes and mind no more, you fiend, you specter
Forged in copper, traced in wax, I will isolate you
Know my name, and hear the voice that controls you now

This pressure is building, burning
the end of things, a star collapsing
Come closer, breathe deeply
Close your eyes, and I'll show you everything
Track Name: Lazarus Frankenstein
Lazaraus Frankenstein

And I looked and beheld angels
Walk in light you will not stumble down
I call to you...

Hear me, come to me
Throw your chains away
Arise, arise

Pieces gathered, living puzzle
Sleep no more, come forth from the tomb
I command you

Hear me, come to me
Throw your chains away
Arise, arise
Track Name: Last Stand
Last Stand

My Grandfather told me one night long ago
the land of my people would turn into stone, into ash
Destroying the future and covering the past

His old eyes were closing, his light growing dim
the Earth opened up, swallowing him, gray and cold
I did not understand, how could I know?

I hear my ancestors calling to me
a voice on the wind, and a song in my dreams, far away
in between the night and the day

I feel a change in the wind and the rain
the hawk speaks to me and she tells me her pain, stay away
blood like a river will flow here today

My mother the Sun and my Sister the moon
look down on my now on this cold afternoon, as I wait
all of the good things have fled from the place

As the men enter the valley below
my friends by my side, and my hands on my bow, be my guide
Don't turn away from me great Father sky

Sister moon shine on me, no man can stop me now
You can't kill me
Track Name: Shiva the Destroyer
Shiva the Destroyer

I close both my eyes and you die
Destroyer, up out of nothingness
Supreme one, ruler of time

Transform, the power of stars in my hand
Born, and yet I'm the bornless one
I am the sky and the land

All my secrets are hidden from you
Spinning, peaceful and violent
the garland and trident of truth

Breaker, disolver, desctructor of mass
Birth and death in one instant
I am the first and the last
Track Name: Ashes

Death is a cloudless sky seen without eyes
Life is a lake of fire, mask of lies
Gnosis bought by pain, visions of beauty
Come place your hand in mine and fall into me

Now fly

No stasis, constant movement, let go of thinking
Surrender to the current, give in to sinking
Turn toward the Sun and burn out your vision
Fill your ears with sand, listen


Look now into the West, let go of this, turn off your mind
Surrender unto night, leave everything you know behind
Fly now, fly

There is no place to rest, but that is how it's always been
and though you don't remember, you have been here many times
You're living in a circle, suffering by your own hands
Maker of your own prison, self-inflicted punishment

Now fly, remember who you are and fly
