LYRICS


MARTYRDOM REPRISE

OUR WELCOMING JUDGEMENT IS NOW IN EFFECT
SENTENCING IS NOW DISCRETIONARY
AMPUTATE, ZERO, CONFIRM

DIVIDED AMONGST CHAOS OUR FUTURE FADES
DIVIDED AMONGST CHAOS CHANGING FACE

OUR FUTURE FADES
CHANGING FACE
WE MUST SHIFT THE BALANCE
PLANT THE SEED IN OUR ABSENCE
TIP THE SCALES, WATCH THEM FLEE
END GOAL, TO BE FREE



BEAVER RUIN

IT MUST BE SOME KIND OF ART TO DO ANYTHING
FOR TEN STRAIGHT YEARS, AND NOT BECOME A MASTER
TEN STRAIGHT YEARS, AND NOT GET ANY BETTER

THIS WAR I WAGE IS SO PERFECT AND RIGHT
BLITZKRIEG THROUGH THE NIGHT
THIS DARKNESS WILL DEVOUR YOUR LIGHT

I MOVE WITH THE POWER AND STRENGTH OF A THOUSAND
MY PATH OF DESTRUCTION, A NATURAL REDUCTION OF FILTH
A MAN IS ONLY WORTH HIS WORD
SO ANY VALUE YOU ONCE HAD HAS NOW EXPIRED

NOW ITS WAR
YOU'VE CROSSED THE LINE THAT YOU HAVE DRAWN
NOW ITS WAR
MY SWORD WILL HOLD YOU TO YOUR WORD
AND RELEASE YOU FROM THIS WORLD WITH HONOR

I'LL TURN YOUR THUMBSCREWS DOWN
FORCE THE SINS FROM YOUR GUTS
AND GIVE YOU THE MEANS TO AN END
WHICH YOU TRULY DESERVE

ITS MUCH TOO LATE
YOU ARE THE TARGET IN MY SIGHT
I MUST ADMIT IT FEELS SO RIGHT
MY WILL AND VISION BEAUTIFUL AND BRIGHT

OWN, REAP WHAT YOU HAVE SOWN



HIGH AND TIGHT

BEGINNING FROM SHORELINES
PUSHING FORWARD THROUGH THEIR PRYING EYES
GREY WALLS FEED BLEAK SCENERY
THIS CONCRETE PRISON SETS THEIR BEASTS FREE
OVER THE SKIES THEY WATCH, DISTORT THIS IMPOSSIBLE DREAM
MONITOR OUR STRUGGLE FROM THE TOWER OF SEVENTEEN

AN INDENTURED SERVANT ARRIVES TO BRING WHAT NEEDS TO BE
A SHIFT IN OUR COURSE, AS WE SCREAM

HERE ME OUT, HERE ME NOW
FROM DOWN BELOW THE BELLY OF THIS PLACE
WE ARE NO LONGER BEATEN DOWN
WITH A TIGHTENED GRIP, AND A WOODEN FACE
HERE ME OUT, HERE ME NOW
WE'LL RISE HIGH ABOVE, WITHOUT A TRACE
WE ARE NO LONGER BEATEN DOWN

WE HAD THE CHANCE TO BELIEVE
NOW THEY'LL SEE HOW I WILL BRING PEACE

BEHIND THESE CONCRETE BEAMS, CRUMBLE FROM THE WEIGHT
INSIDE THIS PRISON, INFILTRATE AND CASTRATE
A BOUNTY ON MY HEAD, THE HIGHEST BID INSTEAD
IS MEANINGLESS, AS WE CRUSH THEIR HATE

THE HUNT BEGINS
WE MUST DEFEND
DESTROY THEIR REIGN
OPPRESSIVE FAITH

WE FOUGHT FOR THE CHANCE TO BELIEVE
NOW THEY SEE HOW I BROUGHT OUR PEACE



EXPEDITION 14A

IN A JOURNEY AMONGST MEN WITH DEMONS FACING THEM
A SECRET EXPEDITION THROUGH JAGGED ROCKS AND WALLS OF FLAME
UNCHARTED BY MAN, UNTOUCHED BY HUMAN HANDS
UNWELCOMED, APPROACHING VIOLENCE

THROUGH THE FIRE, I WILL GIVE MY FINAL STAND
ADMIRE THESE TORMENTED SOULS

WALKING THROUGH THE DOORWAY TO A DARKER LIFE
A NIGHTMARE COMES TO LIGHT
MY ONLY HOPE IS THROUGH THE FIRE
I WILL GIVE MY FINAL STAND
ADMIRE, I WELCOME JUDGEMENT

BROKEN FOUNDATION, ERASED
BROKEN FOUNDATION, ERASE YOUR BODY FROM MY MIND
WORDS CAN NOT DESCRIBE
THE TEETH AND THE SOUND
RIPPED APART QUICKLY
MY MISSION FORFEIT
MISPLACED BY ANGELS OF DIMENSIONAL UNIQUENESS

I WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR FACE
MY FOUNDATION BROKEN DOWN
I WILL NEVER ESCAPE, ERASE
YOUR BODY FROM MY MIND

MY MISSION FORFEIT


DYNABOL

A PASSON FOR WHAT THIS PLACE HAS BECOME
A LESSON THAT HAS YET TO BE LEARNED
FROM THE DAWNING OF A PAINFUL MEMORY
PRESSURE POINT, OUT OF CONTROL

WITHOUT A DOUBT, A PERFECT PLAN
RETURN TO SENDER, HAND IN HAND
PRESSURE POINT, OUT OF CONTROL

UNNECESSARY, THIS PLACE HAS BECOME
A LESSON THAT WAS FINALLY LEARNED
THE FATE OF THIS PAINFUL REMINDER IS HERE
PRESSURE POINT, OUT OF CONTROL

I'VE GOT THESE SCARS THAT KEEP ME COMING HOME

EVADE, DRAG THE LAKE

MY FAULT, YOUR FACE, A SCREAM THAT SHOULD HAVE FLOWN
MY SKIN BECOMES IMPERVIOUS TO ALL
YOU'VE GOT THE MARK THAT KEEPS YOU WANTING MORE
IVE GOT THESE SCARS THAT KEEP ME COMING HOME






LIANDRI'S PROPOSAL

FOUR SCORE ELEVEN YEARS PAST EARTHS TWENTY THIRD CENTURY
A MINING ESTABLISHMENT HAS BROUGHT
THE TOURNAMENTS INTO THE MAINSTREAM

WITH CONSENSUAL MURDER, NO LONGER A CRIME
WITH A RELEASE FOR ANGST, A MATTER OF TIME
A JUSTIFICATION THAT NEED NOT DEBATE

RELEASE THIS RAGE WITHIN OUR VEINS
PETITION US TO BE THE DEADLIEST BEINGS IN THE UNIVERSE

A SOLUTION HAS COME
WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR
A CONTEST TO PRESERVE VIOLENCE FOR THE FRANTIC HORDES
WELCOME THE FUTURE WE HAVE BEEN LONGING TOWARDS

BLOODY EXHIBITIONS
WITH THEIR POPULARITY, GROWS THEIR BRUTALITY
THE PUBLIC DEATHMATCH, A MOST REWARDING ENTITY

ALL THE GALAXY IS OUR STAGE
COME OF AGE A VIOLENT CAMPAIGN
AT LONG LAST, A PROPOSAL HAS COME
TO RELEASE THE RAGE WITHIN OUR VEINS

A SOLUTION HAS COME
WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR
A CONTEST TO PRESERVE VIOLENCE FOR THE FRANTIC HORDES
WELCOME THE FUTURE WE HAVE BEEN LONGING TOWARDS

A PROPOSAL HAS COME
TO SET IN MOTION WHAT WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
A CONTEST TO PRESERVE VIOLENCE FOR THE FRANTIC HORDES
WELCOME THE FUTURE WE HAVE BEEN LONGING TOWARDS

A SOLUTION HAS COME


DECK 17

BUILT UPON A REFINERY OF MOLTEN MAGMA
A PLACE THAT NO SANE MAN WOULD DARE TO KEEP
CONSPIRE FOR THOSE TO WIPE THE FLOOR WITH THEIR FOES
BLOOD POOLS LIKE LAVA DOWN DEEP

TOOLS OF THE TRADE BRINGING PAIN
TO TEAMS OF INTERGALACTIC BEINGS

BURNING DESIRE TO BE THE ONE THAT
TRIUMPHS ON THIS DAY

WE MUST SHIFT THE BALANCE
REMAINING CALLOUS
CONFRONTATION WELL UNDERWAY

WE MUST SHIFT THE BALANCE
REMAINING VALIANT
END GOAL, REIGN SUPREME

I WILL RUN WITH THEE
OUR PLANET CAUGHT UP IN THIS STRUGGLE TO FEED THE DREAM
MY DESIRE FOR DEATH FUELS A FIRE THAT TESTS
CAUTERIZE PAST TWELVE HUNDRED DEGREES

DREAMING AMONGST CHAOS, ALL LIFEFORMS SET ABLAZE

WHERE I LAY MY HEAD SHALL BE
WHERE I HANG YOUR GRAVE
A TROPHY TO SHOW THAT I WAS THE ONE
WHO TRIUMPHED ON THIS DAY

DREAMING AMONGST CHAOS, OUR FUTURES CHANGE
DIVIDED AMONGST CHAOS, CHANGING FACE
BEAR WITNESS, DESTRUCTION GROWS, TESTING FATE
DREAMING AMONGST CHAOS, ALL LIFEFORMS SET ABLAZE


RUSTATORIUM

ALL THE GALAXY IS A STAGE
AND ALL THE SPECIES MERELY PLAYERS IN THIS GAME
THEY HAVE THEIR EXITS AND THEIR ENTRANCES
ONE MANS PAIN, IN TIME, KNOWS MANY LAYERS

AT FIRST THE INFANT
SCREAMS WITH A BATTERING OF HARMONIES
AND THEN THE LOVER
WITH DREARY EYES AND PRESSED TO FIND
THAT WHICH WAITS ACROSS THE STARS
WHAT WILL RESIDE

THEN A SOLDIER
REMAINING CALLOUS
AND THEN AN ARMY
REMAINING VALIANT

EVEN IN THE MOUTH OF THE BEAST WE REIGN SUPREME

AND THEN THE JUSTICE
HERE IN THE GRAVEYARD OF THIS CIVILIZATIONS DREAM

AT LAST THE JUSTICE

LAY WASTE IN THE RUSTATORIUM
ONLY ONE WILL RISE FROM THE RUSTATORIUM

LAY WASTE
ONLY ONE WILL RISE
