Track Name: in the first light of false dawn
Detached from their
hollow shells of flesh and bone
they rise and gather
they all come back to me

I am a ghost town
a crossroads in a spectral wasteland

I have witnessed the descent
of countless souls reshaped
into life forms so devoid of life
mistaking dreams for death

Spectres bent under the weight
of all the lives they did not live
and all the needs they did not meet
and all the friends they did not trust

World-shifters
yet nowhere at home

The wraiths who haunt my astral alleys
in the first light of false dawn
are but dreaming minds of breathing men
begging in regret
let us stay
let us stray
Track Name: it sleeps in the pit
In blind marksmen
and in naked dreamers
deep below
it sleeps in the pit

You live for the dream of others
and yet you drool on their boots
like a dog

Smell
choke
sob

Taste
cringe
cling

Child of man
this dream is not yours
only this pain is what is yours

Deep below
it sleeps in the pit
Track Name: the desert hears you
Tread lightly
lest the desert hear you

Tread lightly
lest the desert know you

Be the sands
do not leave a trace

Be the sands
do not let it be known
that you are not of the desert

Drown in my eyes
invincible

Bask in my glory
the ultimate

If you know my name
cry it out
Track Name: the giant in flight
The beast is us
and we have forgotten
the beast in us
gazing through time

Teratorn
colossal wings beating air
a time-lost memento

Teratorn
a giant in flight
an airborne reminder
that darkens the skies

Teratorn
just like you
we will spread our wings
take the leap
and fall into oblivion

Teratorn
claws and beak
hands and tongue

The crown
the pinnacle
of prehistoric glory

Like yours
our call will reverberate through the ages

A dirge for long forgotten kings
Track Name: a vessel for the voices
Engulfed in signals
meaningless to us
in a maze of arbitrary
symbols and signs

We find ourselves
snared between the lines
standing blindly
in the eye of the storm

With open chests for everyone to see
in a world of actors and mimes

They speak in riddles
as they peer into the world
through darkest slits
in masks of deceit

A dance in thorns
anxious not to hurt
deadly to the touch
and forever excluded from this
the greatest masquerade of all

Where a single gesture
can cast the weak into the abyss

Here we stand
a herd
shunned by the herd
and find you:
a vessel for our voices
as you find beauty in weakness
