As we march, following the line that cannot fade with time - Our spiritual bearing Despite differences in minds, with this truth, we find friend and enemy are one Now cast out fears of the past To move forward from what was then, to what will be Fortune comes from conscious choice Who we are is not written in our blood Destiny waits We choose our own path Yet share the same end This beckoning oblivion Are we born into a shallow life, just standing defiant, devoid of meaning? Or are we set to always continue, beyond physical form? Destiny waits We choose our own path Yet share the same end This beckoning oblivion [Twin Lead: Ellis & McMorran] [Solo: McMorran] [Solos: Ellis] Now move forward from what was then, to what will be Fortune comes from conscious choice Who we are is not written in our blood Destiny waits We choose our own path Yet share the same end This beckoning oblivion This beckoning oblivion

Under the strain the cracks start to show Still can't tell, when it falls, which way it will go How can an empire, for aeons, stand with it's foundations built upon the sand? A thousand questions, but never an answer After a lifetime spent, I can't tell what's been gained Where am I going? What am I fighting for?... …Still this undying dedication to a dead cause The lasting shreds of belief barely hold me together As I stand on the edge staring out at the dark of forever No way to tell which way is wrong or right I'm blind in the darkness, and I'm blind in the light A victim of my own uncertainty Bound by parameters of my morality Am I knowingly leading myself where no one can follow? Deeper into this hole, there's no way out A thousand questions, but never an answer After a lifetime spent, I can't tell what's been gained Where am I going? What am I fighting for?... …Still this undying dedication to a dead cause [Solos: Ellis] [Twin Lead: Ellis & McMorran] [Solo: Ellis] Where am I going? What am I fighting for?... …Still this undying dedication to a dead cause

New age of misery Live life to death's decree Shadows fall Hypocritic oath The global threshold chokes Is there hope at all? This world - untold chaos and sadness We're forced - comply or die, feeding their greed We Fall so small Trivial, is this Living at All? Visions of abyss Life forever shadowed Forlorn World We are alone, existing as one Born to the Earth, consumed by the Sun Irreversible existence Back to the Earth, we continue to take Ravage our planet, our final mistake I stand alone Death Accepted, free is my soul Surrounded by depression A pill for immortality? [Solo: McMorran] [Solo: Ellis] [Twin Leads: Ellis & McMorran] Wait for death The world - foretold death and destruction We're forced by these laws, to wait for death We Fall so small Trivial, is this Living at All? Visions of abyss Life forever shadowed Forlorn World We are alone, existing as one Born to the Earth, consumed by the Sun Irreversible existence Back to the Earth, we continue to take Ravage our planet, our final mistake I stand alone Death Accepted, free is my soul Surrounded by depression A pill for immortality?

Morbid terror Godless forever World, slaves to hypocrisy Living life my own way I strive for everything I do Determined to take what's mine Existence divided by belief and lies Sheltered by your own ignorance, you're blind to see That we are one with this earth Self serving entity If there is a God - One almighty power Will it hear your prayers?... Give you the answers?... Rise Strive Eternally Godless Burning hate forms scars that never heal Four Walls with no doors Suffer this my own way I'll die for anything I do Determined to take what's mine Existence divided by belief and lies Sheltered by your own ignorance, you're blind to see That we're destroying this earth Self ending entity If there is a God - One almighty power Will it hear your prayers?... Give you the answers?... Rise Strive Eternally Godless Godless Reign Free will denied Conform, sheep drawn to the light Control defied Cast God aside Go! [Solo: Ellis] [Solo: McMorran] [Leads: Ellis] Rise Strive Eternally Godless Eternally Godless

[Solo: Ellis] Convoluted past, unrepentant sin Behold the arrogance, of a race dying Desire to liberate, pretense to dominate An age of suffering War that never ends Greed forcing us to bend Pain the last days of man Visions of a master plan [Solo: Ellis] The light that blinds, searing through my mind Visions that speak of a crimson sky Rise the sun of a bloodshot dawn Our time is over, visions have been spoken A new chapter opens Now comes the time of a grand design Reckless disregard suffers punishment As the ones before, we bite the hand that feeds Failure to learn what history has taught We are our own downfall Fire consumes the sky Seas boil and turn to blood Pain of our timely demise A new dawn will arise [Lead: Ellis] [Solo: McMorran] And as the old world dies Remorse saved for none When we face our own demise You'll burn in the heat of a bloody sun [Solo: McMorran] [Leads: Ellis] The light that blinds, searing through my mind Visions that speak of a world's demise Rise the sun of a bloodshot dawn Our time is over, visions have been spoken A new chapter opens Now comes the time of a grand design

Blood red eyes Thoughts of genocide Parasite Decay of sanity Imploded evolution Accepted disillusion Conscience void Programmed to destroy Humanity will be it's own end The virus The cancer This world consumed… Devoured by sentient disease The famine of morality Self inflicted wounds draw the virus in The failings and suffering of mankind Replicated, mutated, errors are the same Destined to be remade Facing Death Perpetual Demise Ignorance Global suicide Neglect and self destruction Dawn of a dark horizon Gluttony We gorge on our existence Suffering in it's finest form Internal, forever scorned With intentions of hate that we nurture within Vile acts of volition, over aeons of old Humanity will be it's own end The virus The cancer This world consumed… Devoured by sentient disease The famine of morality Self inflicted wounds draw the virus in The failings and suffering of mankind Replicated, mutated errors are the same destined to be remade [Guest Solo: Sebastian Nilsson] [Solo: Ellis]

End of the line All existence ends Universal collapse Our destiny's tied Solar systems collide Gravities relapse A black hole erupts, to consume all life Not even light can avoid this fate Cataclysmic destruction This is our end The Quantum Apocalypse Nothing will remain Time and light extinguished Death of a star Only the beginning Matter is no more Vortex of end Planets collide The living die A black hole erupts, to consume all life Trapped in a void, forever destroyed Crushed into nothing Forces unseen begin the cosmic unravelling What once was all will be returned to nothingness [Lead: Ellis] This is our end The Quantum Apocalypse Nothing will remain Time and light extinguished Caught on the event horizon - Gravity snared All light now turns to darkness - Matter erased [Solo: Ellis] [Solo: McMorran] This is our end The Quantum Apocalypse Nothing will remain Time and light extinguished Caught on the event horizon - Gravity snared All light now turns to darkness - Matter erased

[Solo: Ellis] I will rise, feeding the blind Propagate a need for dependency Man made God - Apotheosis They have no right, yet say they do To take what they want from you This Sickening Dogma I divide - Deceiving the weak of faith In the strength of their minds One by one - Tyrants will fall Scriptures will burn - Vindictive lies Now lift the veil from sleeping eyes Truth Bought to light - Awakened minds Man made God - Apotheosis They have no right, yet say they do To take what they want from you This Sickening Dogma [Solo: McMorran] One by one - Tyrants will fall One by one - Tyrants will fall Scriptures will burn - Vindictive lies Now lift the veil from sleeping eyes Truth Bought to light - Awakened minds [Solo: Ellis] [Solo: McMorran] [Twin Lead: Ellis & McMorran]

The wretched hollow, a void within Disintegration of identity begins Driven by the need to be complete You fabricate an inaccurate reality Compulsion to deceive yourself Distorts your view of the world and all else Incessant self obsession: ego infatuation What will you gain, deluding yourself? What you see is not real You cannot be coerced to feel Reject the thoughts flooding the senses You're lost to this illusion aesthetic Lost in illusion... Problems ignored through misdirection A conscious diversion of attention Distractions pulling focus from the way you've condoned your own slavery [Solo: McMorran] What you see is not real You cannot be coerced to feel Reject the thoughts flooding the senses To be free from this illusion aesthetic Lost in Illusion... [Lead: Ellis] [Solo: Ellis] Now is the time to recreate And abandon this idea of fate Conceptualise and begin rebirth To rediscover a sense of self worth What you see is not real You cannot be coerced to feel Reject the thoughts flooding the senses To be free from this illusion aesthetic Free from illusion Free from illusion

[Lead: Ellis] DNA created slaves Born the archetype - forefather of man Embryonic deficiencies Miscreation humanity The evolution begins… Brought upon Earth A plague of deception A slave race revolution Through archetype design Fueled by hate Greed and malice A flawed creation Self deprivation reigns The Earth will never be the same A catalyst created Count down to the end of the world Monstrosity, anomaly We are the virus Brought upon Earth A plague of deception A slave race revolution Through archetype design [Solo: Ellis] [Trade-off: McMorran / Ellis / McMorran / Ellis] Brought upon Earth A plague of deception A slave race revolution Through archetype design
