Track Name: Burning Bodies
Fires, I see fires
They burn away the sin
(Burn away the sin)
Nirvana, sweet Nirvana
Bring peace to my kin
(Bring peace to my kin)

They say that paradise sits upon a pillar of smoke
But only the pure of heart can reach the top before they choke

Symptoms, I've had symptoms
Of insecurities
(Insecurities)
Lately, I've started to question
What it is I was told to believe
(What it is I was told to believe)

They say the dictatorship of what's above only takes the strong of faith
I'm worried my questioning mind will stop my soul from entering the gate

A mist of steaming fat
Is hung about the funeral pyre
Sticks in strangers' hands
Swing to push the bones around the fire
Teeth and ash...teeth and ash
All that my master needs
Is burning bodies

Burning bodies
Burning bodies
Burning bodies

Sacred, something sacred
Is flowing through my veins
(Flowing through my veins)
Voices, I hear voices
They call out ancient names
(Call out ancient names)

I've heard that wrong or right it's not the plight of men to question rules
I need to take the path that God has set, it's not my right to choose

A mist of steaming fat
Is hung about the funeral pyre
Sticks in strangers' hands
Swing to push the bones around the fire
Teeth and ash...teeth and ash
All that my master needs
Is burning bodies

Burning bodies
Track Name: Carnivores
We're all sick creatures
Set afire by our diseases
It's written through the ages
A billion bloodshot faces

Half of the truth, call of the unfeeling
It all tastes the same when it's time that you're stealing
As gold dust shimmers sawdust burns
The man of the soil eats away all he earns
Some men suffer, some men feast
and the carnivore deals in meat
deals in meat

Carnivores
Always hungry for more
Carnivores
All hail the carnivore

Kicking and screaming red in the eye
they all ask for hunger and already know why

Some men suffer, some men feast
and the carnivore deals in meat
deals in meat

Carnivores
Always hungry for more
Carnivores
All hail the carnivore

Rich, sweet
Taste the blood when you're deep in the meat
Blood, bone
Carnivores from your hearts to your souls

Say you love what you know
All you hold when there's blood on the throne
Blood, bone
Carnivores from your hearts to your souls

Rich, Sweet
Blood, Bone,
Rich, Sweet,
Blood, Bone
Track Name: Jackal
blood of mine
waste your time
slit a vein and it's red as wine

sent his light
unto the earth
but you poisoned the well from the moment of birth

may god protect love and defend you
damn any motherfucker that dares to tempt you
if you can change you may be saved
before night shuts out the light of day

we are the lucky ones
breathing air through blackened lungs
wandering through golden fields
peace of mind that only time reveals

salt the hearts of shame
of those spirits so free they can't be tamed
smash out the smiles
from those pretty faces shining for miles and miles

tie down the hands
that reach so far they can stretch out and seize command
spit out your dreams
the twisted mind plans out false fantasies

A monster
Feeds on fear
It whispers
In your ear
Can you hear me?
Am I coming in clear?
Jackal

ease out the blood
from those bodies so strong resemble living gods
enclose the soul in rope
brand the soft skin, slit the unwashed throat
sew up the mouths of those people so brave they dare to speak aloud
drain the mind of hope
unshield the soul that can always find the strength to cope

A monster
Feeds on fear
It whispers
In your ear
Can you hear me?
Am I coming in clear?
Jackal

blood of mine
waste your time
slit a vein and it's red as wine

sent his light
unto the earth
but you poisoned the well from the moment of birth

may god protect love and defend you
damn any motherfucker that dares to tempt you
if you can change you may be saved
before night shuts out the light of day
Track Name: Haunt Your Ghost
I've seen you flicker, like a flame
Swaying back and forth again
When you've felt that cold cold breath
Running up and down your neck
When you leave that mountain view
You're gonna wish you'd stuck it through
Because for every prize you boast
My name's gonna haunt your ghost

No-one ever thinks of the risks
Wanna take life as it comes
Peer at lesser men from the mountain tops
Taste judgment of the returning sons

You silly little thing
Stand so close to the ground you cling
So scared of falling down
To the embrace of a burial mound

Ever further from your home
the road goes on and on
Out on the mountain range
you're at the mercy of the skies that change

No-one ever thinks of the risks
Wanna take life as it comes
Stare at lesser men from the mountain tops
Face judgment of the returning sons

But for every prize you boast
My name's gonna haunt your ghost

No-one sings the tales
Of those that tried and failed
The things you want the most
Are gonna haunt your ghost
Track Name: Wolves
A great machine
Of tungsten and steel
We programmed its mind
And taught its heart how to feel

Iron lungs
churn all night and all day
Goliath stands watch
Keeping the wolves at bay

Keeping the wolves at bay
Keeping the wolves at bay
Keeping the wolves at bay
Keeping the wolves at bay

outside the city walls
masses ever grow
but at the golden gate
blood of the outsiders flow
they hope to breach our paradise
change the state of play
but goliath stands watch
keeping the wolves at bay

Keeping the wolves at bay
Keeping the wolves at bay
Keeping the wolves at bay
Keeping the wolves at bay

a speeding asteroid from a far off place
cruising through the darkness of empty space
through star solar systems and ancient galaxies
rich with a payload of radioactive debris

aimed at a single
point of collision
a satellite powered by nuclear fission
the E.M.P. blast
blows goliath away
as the prophecy says,
the wolves will have their day

They'll have their day
They'll have their day
They'll have their day
They'll have their...
Track Name: True Believer
Swallow your heart in one mouthful
Follow your art if you think you should
If you think you should

Kill off the voice that says no
Fan out the flames that lie below
That lie below

'Cause its a goddamn shame when we all just get along
Yes its a goddamn shame when we all just get along

Put your cannons to bed and use wit
Wear your heart on your sleeve
Let someone else break it
That's the flavour we crave

Build title and land And burn it down
Lay out dirty wears
Air them all over town
Air them all over town

'Cause its a goddamn shame when we all just get along
Yeah its a goddamn shame when we all just get along
Start a brand new trend made of broken bones
While you're sitting at home in your room all alone
In your room all alone

Be something bold; something no-one can tame
Show the world that you're hungry and you're not ashamed
And you're not ashamed
'Cause its a goddamn shame when we all just get along
Yes its a goddamn shame when we all just get along
Track Name: Sleep In Salt
Captain Ahab
Safe behind his sacred beard
Bring on leviathan
Stab out the fear

break out the spearheads
lay down the shield
cling to the bloodknot
hands on the wheel

Put your dreams to bed
This prize, it lives in your head
Lust that makes us slaves
Now drags us to our graves

Crew spring from flea filled beds
jump to raise the nets
jokes at the madmans brow
laughs at his expense
you obey the sea now
answer the monster's call
You salty sea-dog
You know you'll kill us all

Put your dreams to bed
This prize, it lives in your head
Lust that makes us slaves
Now drags us to our graves

It's your fault
We sleep in salt

Cliff face of water
storm of the mind
enslaves the callous hand
of ropes that bind

pray for the capture
pray for the queen
we've brought the empire
every place we've been

hold tight the main sail
hold tight the dread
theres no stopping til
the beast is dead

take note of your old deeds
of moments past
here among the waves
this could be your last

it's your fault
we sleep in salt
Track Name: White Spider
I met a little friend
Dancing at the bottom of a bridge
She doesn't seem to appreciate
The talent she's been gifted with
I asked her to stay a while
Watched her turn a circle or two
She said of course, you are my guest
Though you haven't even got a clue
Though you haven't even got a clue

I settled down just entranced
wondering what she had in store
she said I've got a little story you should hear
about an apple rotten to the core
try and move, I bet you can't
got you stuck like a bullet in the head
you're a fly paralysed by fear
caught inside my little black web
caught inside my little black web

Open your eyes, now a little wider
You're no real match for a little white spider
Gonna trap you, tie you up and bind you
No real match for a little white spider

I screamed aloud
are you not my friend?
I trusted you implicitly
she said oh, you silly little boy
what you were craving wasnt coming for free
every creature in the forest needs to feed
Don't act like the innocent
i can satisfy my hunger with ease
and I've got got you on a knee that's bent
and I've got you on a knee that's bent

Open your eyes, now a little wider
You're no real match for a little white spider
Gonna trap you, tie you up and bind you
No real match for a little white spider

Open your eyes
Now a little wider
You're no real match
For a little white spider
Open your eyes
Track Name: Blood Of The Father
I've never found the need to pray to a God
To me, it just seems like fear of reason
The son must shun his father's beliefs
As roles reverse from season to season
Place no faith in the rules of this world
They can lead you to a place no man should go
We're all gonna fade as the day wears on
So build an empire before you're gone

It's a sweet life that we lead
Where the bleeding hearts never bleed
And the scars of the elders
Lead the young hearts to better

The blood of the father
tainted with truth
The blood of the father
Is watered down with use

The venom of the vein
the sweet heart sent to shame
the blood of the father

The grip, the grief
the red hands of the thief
The blood of the father
