Track Name: A Blight Upon the Sky
The skies are turning
The heavens are fading
Stars disappearing

Blood red
Apocalyptic skies

Black clouds
Signs of gloom and pain

I dreamed we were rulers of darkness
A land eclipsed in twilight
But now as I look up to the sky
I have dreamed in futility

Impossibly,
Chasm overhead

Undeniably,
Mass extinction

It's almost like a blight has been cast upon the sky
Turning the heavens infernal
How is this possible?
No abyssal maw could exist like this
What god would do this?
What god could do this?
Track Name: Apocalypse! Sayeth the Prophet
Hark! Civilians and shadows
Do you see? You see this void? Void up high?
This chasm above will cave in
For the ends are nigh!

When clouds surround and sky turns black
A blaze will rain from above
When ash collects and earth fades white
Our souls will depart from this world

When clouds surround and sky turns black
Ashes will rain from above
When light grows dim and and time stands still
We will be born again

Fading at last
Approaching last breath
Don't you now rest
No futures, only death
Track Name: Wistful Wanders
I remember walking down the shore
Gazing across the sea
It's hard to think this will be no more
And all there will ever be

And I remember running through the woods
Peering through the trees
Thinking there was something looking down on us
But we have been left to freeze

Here we stand, in the trembling cold
The winds whisper despair
But our spirits will remain after we die out
And once the end draws near

So take us from life
But our memories cannot fade, and cannot die
They will wake from death

Standing still in time
Stranded without light

Every day I am reminded
Of these carefree times
Oblivious to the light and fire
But we can no longer hide
For inside of me
By a truth I abide
It's killing me
Deep inside

Every moment I shall remember
When we were filled with desire
And had a passion
For all with life
Deep in my mind
Knowing we all will die
It burns inside
I'm burning alive
Track Name: And the Night Was Still
If a man dies alone
Is he not in pain?
When sky was split from stone
Was there nothing to gain?

In the still of the night
The stars resemble the sea
I've come to see the light
Will you present it to me?

If a star shines too bright
Will it run out of light?
When sky fades with the night
Will it fade out of sight?

In the still of the night
The stars wither like trees
I've come to see the light
So will you present it to me?

If a god dies alone
Is he not torn?
When blood was fused with bone
We die as we were born

In the still of the night
The stars resemble a flame
I came to see the light
But all I see is my grave
Track Name: Betrayed by the Stars
We used to worship the land
Giver of life
But now the earth is tainted
From corruption of a sin once unknown

We were promised we could rule the land
Protected from a scourge most vile
But here we stand, awaiting our fate
From the gods, to be forgotten by time

Standing still in time
Stranded without light

We used to chase the moon
Hopeful and carefree
But now the sky is filled with dust
From the ashes raining above

We were promised we could soar in the stars
Protected from cosmos malign
But here we stand, awaiting our fate
From the gods, to be forgotten by time
Track Name: Shadowdance
So take my final breath
And cast these shadows away
Following the earth's last pulse
You, too, will fade

The shadow of life
Further stagnates
And time shows no mercy

I dreamed we ruled the darkness
But awoke to a land of ice
Perhaps we'll find our dream in heaven
We will find our paradise

Harmonious in the night sky
A land of eternal twilight
Amongst the arms of our savior
We can turn darkness into light!
