Track Name: new god
a new god
came down from the sky
a new god
drink your bloody wine.
a new god
come down from your cross
a new god
sent your only son...
to die for our sins
free and save us from
a new god
came down from the sky
a new god
drink your blood and wine.
a new god
cut down from your cross
a new god
sent your only son...
to die
Track Name: on spires
dead men wake
blood frozen cold
slowly the memories arrive
all of our brothers
lain dead in the fields
with their last moments locked in their eyes
the rotting - the stink
the un-beating hearts
the steam laden breath from their mounts
never the taste of revenge been so sweet
than to see the life vacate their eyes

brothers rise!
so the bastards may fall!
sisters, RISE!
may your souls heed the call!
by the gods!

their bodies on spires cast shadows below
in their courtyards by pale grey moonlight
never the taste of revenge been so sweet
than to see the life vacate their eyes!

waning moon
the night, it grows old
slowly the memories subside
all of their bannermen hung from the keep
for the vultures to feast on their eyes
the taste of revenge
seductively sweet
remains on our tongues all our days
now, lay down my brothers and sisters to sleep
in the fields unperturbed in your graves!

rise forth - breathe life
Track Name: chasing the tail
watching the sums reduce to none
subtracting outcomes slowly
one by one
time nulls all components eventually
calculating
chasing the tail of entropy
we call on gods to stop from becoming the meat
becoming nothing at all
disintegrating the fabric while temperatures fall
time nulls all components eventually
calculating
chasing the tail of entropy
we call on gods to stop from becoming the meat

like salt in the sea - dissipate
atomically – deteriorate
Track Name: ulfbehrt
born
from ore 
dug deep in mountains ageless
mined 
from caverns 
silent deep and cold
torn 
from veins 
of copper, coal and silver
brought 
to 
the surface of the earth

wrenched from rock sewn into blackest mountains ageless
torn from depths below - the ulfberht has been born! 
wrenched from rock sewn into blackest mountains ageless
by the gods, today -
the ulfberht has been born!

crush 
the stone down 
molten metal forms a river
quench 
the blade 
in sacred liquid to make pure
singing
out with 
every hammer blow delivered
as if 
to signify 
its entering this world

wrenched from the rocks sewn into blackest mountains ageless
torn from the depths below
the ulfberht has been born! 

wrenched from rock sewn into blackest mountains ageless
by the gods! Today!
the ufberht has been born
Track Name: bright new day
hear me my friends
beyond the trees our enemies
prepare themselves
they plan to slaughter you and me

but when the light of the morning breaks
we’ll all be standing strong to see
the cresting horizon shimmering
our sun still rises to the east

now prepare yourselves
sharpen your blades and calm your steeds
soon we ride to meet
the bright light of our destiny

but when the light of the morning breaks
we’ll wash their blood off in the sea
on the crest the horizon shimmering
the sun shall shine on us indeed!

ride!

scream your battle cries
fight with sword and knife
split their rank and file
spill their blood and bile
onward we will ride
‘till the breaking light
Track Name: everything shall burn
all that's left
sunken seas
trees that fail to grow
burning ash
stinking smoke
choking life below
when the sea beds turn to salt
mankind has failed to learn...
the earth abides, the pendulum swings
and everything shall burn
nothing left
sunken seas
trees that fail to grow
in the wake 
of our greed 
we failed to tend the earth
nothing  left
sunken seas
trees that fail to grow
burning ash
stinking smoke
choking life below
when the seabed turns to salt
mankind has failed to learn
the earth abides, the pendulum swings
and everything shall burn
no one left 
sunken seas 
trees that fail to grow
in the wake 
of our greed 
we failed to tend the earth
pendulum swings 
everything burns 
and men have failed to learn
the earth and seas 
oceans and trees
long gone but will return
Track Name: the mountain
better to bite than be bitten
right every wrong left unwritten
so many ways…to skin that goat
the depths we’ll go to stay afloat

under the frozen white winter
deep under mountains lie treasure
a throne lies in wait – a lost kingdom
in the lair of our foe blood will spill

under the waning light
under the cloak of night

under the frozen white winter
deep under mountains lie treasures that glitter
a throne lies in wait, a lost kingdom remote
in the lair of our foe blood will spill from their throats

we break bones and gnash teeth
we crush skulls and march deep
we cut down all that stands
with blood warming our hands
for pale gold and gem fire
for fine stones on gold wire
that hung one but then were lost
to the mountain

under the waning light
under the cloak of night
under the frozen white
under the frozen white
Track Name: mass of a thousand suns
i felt the earth
crumbling away
beneath the ground
below my feet, yeah

I felt the tide
whisk me away
beneath the waves
the sunken deepness

i felt myself
floating in space
i felt the force
of gravity wane

the dark gave way
to galaxies, man.
the eye of space
looked into me

the void below!

i saw the stars
i saw the black stars
expanding out as far as can be seen

i saw the suns
i saw the black suns
the void of time collapsing everything

i felt the earth
falling away
the rubble now
surrounds my feet, yeah

the dark gives way
to galaxies, yeah
the eye of space
looks into me

deep underground
below my feet
the whole of earth began to quake

the dark gives way
to galaxies, yeah
the eye of space
looked into me
