Track Name: Kingdom of Ashes
Skeletal arms outstretched
Beneath a stone man, crumbling
Rotting amidst false hopes
And arrogant cowardice
The reaper was power drunk
Religion was his scythe
Cultivating fresh naive lives

The true king, ruler of the people
And now nothing remains,
Except for ruin and decay

We've been waiting
for light and rain
Still nothing has come
And now nothing remains
Except ruin

Skeletal arms outstretched
Your leader, crumbling

Fruits and resources eradicated and feeble
Each monarch tries to find an answer for their people
There may be another way around
But all they know is how to take and consume

The faction’s armies rise
Ready for eachothers demise
As they march across the sands
Destroying all life on all lands

We've waited for light
We've waited for rain
Still nothing has come
and nothing remains
Except ruin

With nothing left after decades of destruction
There's nothing left to gain
And nothing left to lose

Fire and decay are the products of this mess
Bloated bodies in the sun, slowly return to the soil
Women, children suffering; nothings left for them
Half the world is dead gone, the other half is scarce
With a new kingdom built from this and nothing to sustain

Amidst this all, sits the king of ruin
Amidst it all, a ruler for the people
At the end of it, sits the king of ruin
Ruling over the barren, empty, wasted lands

Lyrics: Jasper Farnham / Matt Walters
Track Name: Tyrant
An empty world, cannot host life anymore
Now it's been trailed for too long
What was right?

Solace, execution, empty, all taken

We fought and destroyed what we loved
And for what? Now he sits there on
His throne, with no remorse

No water for the fire. Fuelled by greed, desire
An empire can't run without its people
The people grow restless,
They cannot survive, they cannot run
A blind eye turned for the worst

We fought and destroyed what we loved
And for what? An empty world, cannot host life anymore
Now he sits there on
His throne, with no remorse

His kingdom of ashes

Lyrics: Jasper Farnham
Track Name: Death is Peace
Fear is setting in

Fear and death surrounds me x2
No scraps left for the poor, no fuel for the light
Bodies of the people burn. Everything to nothing
The everlasting fear of failure, it lurks beneath

Everything in your life, what it's built upon ends tonight
Everything no more

Destined to be one with the sun
Others can only dream; what’s done is done
Everything to nothing, that everlasting fear of failure
Just as sure that death will come.
Everything is void of life, but in death is peace despite
In death there's peace

Fear is setting in

The sun goes down but the moon stays black
A life of darkness and we can't go back
Buildings crumble and a world once known
Devoid of all that was here before
Now dead

Fear and death surrounds me
No scraps left for the poor, no fuel for the light
Bodies of the people burn. Everything to nothing
The everlasting fear of failure, burning through the sunset
Everything is void of life, but in death is peace despite
In death there's peace

With, one, last, breath

Crawling to their leader's throne
Arms outstretched with empty hands

Lyrics: Jasper Farnham
Track Name: Decadence
Tried to stay, not today, distant memories fade away
It will arise at the dawn of a new light
What's wrong? What is right?

In this world, born anew
We can't forget, or erase the past

Breathing life on lands of death
We'll be reborn once again
Broken bones and shattered stone
As a base

You'll never know what was meant to be
This gift of life that you'll never see

From this death, born anew
We can't forget or erase the past

Breathing life on lands of death
We'll be reborn once again
Broken bones and shattered stone
As a base

We tried to, we tried to maintain what was life
We were blind, blind to our own self destruction
One last breath, was all it took to eradicate all

Almighty conqueror crumpled,
Sunken deep in his throne
As the sun sets forever,
Over his kingdom of ashes
Greedy ambition was the tomb of the masses
And the Earth is crowned
Sovereign of Time

The frosts of dawn
Thaw under decaying skies
A dawn without god
It's when we'll arise
We arise

Lyrics: Jasper Farnham / Matt Walters
