Track Name: Guided Meditation
Close thy eyes

Bow thy head

Repeat after me and

breathe the words in



If all we see and all we seem

is nothing but a dream within a dream

Wake up

You’re shaking



Behold!

The porticos and vistas of Unknown Kadath

Where no God or Mortal Man

has ever traveled past



Your body and mind awaken

You’re shaking
Track Name: Invisible Fields
You know it’s worth a try

to dive off the tight rope

to fall down and shake the earth

to courageously unsheathe your heart

attempt to be start-like



Invisible fields

With eye's always watching

Cut out the middle man

silver chord pulsing

The afterlife seems to know how to party

Bone dance with me to the full moon

Rising



Black Gulfs

Dead Starts

only live behind my eyes

Yeah there’s a fire inside

But it’s not the spark of life

Black Gulfs

Dead Stars

only live behind my eyes



You know it’s worth a try

to carve out some precious time

to slam down hammer to anvil

to breathe in, to breathe out

disperse the black cloud



Immortalized

Buried Alive

Frozen in Time

Immortalized
Track Name: Bleak Prospects
I feel sick

what time is it?

The sunrise always looks so hateful

I'm used to it

I’ve climbed out of many a car wreck

falling down never looked so graceful



I’ve changed my alchemical form

I’m not the same equation I was before



If I make it out of this one I swear

I’ll finally change myself for the better

But I’m a Good Virus, I’ll lead you all the way to the Big One

The Body always comes to collect all the checks that The Spirit can’t cash



I found my younger tongue in a shoebox under my bed

There’s no perfect way it said

There’s no perfect way for this happen

there’s no perfect way



I feel sick

what time is it?

That sunrise always looks so hateful

I'm used to it

I’ve climbed out of many car wrecks

But falling down never looked so graceful



My black starts rise

I mummify

I cower at the sunlight

still, cower at the sunlight
Track Name: Only a Candle
I’ll find my own way

through that dark arcade

only a candle to light my way

don’t follow



Where there are monsters lurking in the shadows

while the garroter waits by the gallows

Where all our heroes turn out to be liars

where all my dreams stagnate, expire



My minds been turning

down wrong streets again

my eyes are rolling

in the back of my head

don’t follow

I’ll find my own way



Where there are monsters lurking in the shadows

while the garroter waits by the gallows

Where all our heroes turn out to be liars

where all my dreams stagnate, expire



I touch the mirror

I feel my skin

while my reflection

is crumbling



my heart is burning

its not pretend

the vortex spirals

pulling me in



“Children will always be afraid of the dark,

and men with minds sensitive to hereditary impulse

will always tremble at the thought

of hidden and fathomless worlds of strange life

which may pulsate in the gulfs beyond the stars,

or press hideously our own globe

in unholy dimensions

which only the dead and the moonstruck can glimpse.”



Ive got a restless tongue

licking my teeth

try to find the rotted one

pluck out the rotted one

Ive got a restless tongue

turning to dust

try to find that rotted one

i no longer trust



I tried to burn the book

but the pages never took
Track Name: The Singing Flame
In my shunned house

under sheets of iron

I wait dead but dreaming

I wait dead but dreaming



it would take the strength

of forgotten titans

just to lift my these withered limbs

just to lift my heavy head



I seemed to have gone down with the wreck

of shattered worlds

down toward

some infra stellar pit

an ultimate limbo

where planet shards

and their solar systems

collapse inside themselves

I know that Hell is real

I found it in myself



The Flame

It sings



Traverse

Give up your name

Traverse

To a higher plane

Skin and brain

incinerate

but the Spirit

Remains



On this doomed planet

under strange stars

am I awake or dreaming?

I must be dreaming



It would take the will

of elder wizards

to resist this sirens song

stringing me along



I seemed to have gone down with the wreck

of shattered worlds

down toward

some infra stellar pit

an ultimate limbo

where planet shards

solar systems

collapse into them self

I know now that hell is real

I found it in myself



The Flame

It sings



Traverse

Give up your name

Traverse

to a higher plane

Skin and brain

incinerate

but the spirt

still remains



the song stung

like a lure

hooked through my soul

like an icicle

I must follow

I must follow
Track Name: Catacomb Bones
I found your stone

in the back row

I dug way down

found your catacomb



It's lonely in my coffin

I’m down here so often

with your Catacomb Bones



Life has truly lost its luster

and I’ve given all the strength I can muster

It’s useless as a touched moths wing

Fearless embers, phoenix rising
