Lyrics:

Silence.
Close your eyes and open your mind.

Sit on the ground and dig your fingers deep into the earth.
Let them dig deeper.

Can you feel the bones beneath the earth?

Carved into the land like bloodied ancient scriptures,
A tale of suffering and the greatest tragedy.

Swallowed by hate,
A natural bond torn apart,
A desecration of the highest degree.
Earth and stone,
Blood and bone,
We are one,
But what have we become?

In an age where loyalty looks past man,
Only a respect for the natural order.
A time when we relied on, what was always there.
But now we are blind and misguided.
Now we must realise the mistakes we have made.

When a so called discovery leads to blood and slaughter,
A struggle for power and a right to belong.
Banished out by our own,
All the voices silenced.
Banished out by our own,
All the voices silenced.

When a so called democracy fuelled by hypocrisy,
The smothering giant, taking what isn't theirs.
Blood will be shed to achieve their goals.

Swallowed by hate,
A natural bond torn apart,
A desecration of the highest degree.
Earth and stone,
Blood and bone,
We are one,
But what have we become?

When false promises fall through, time and time again.
We must question what really drives us.
To love and nurture means nothing when you're faced with greed and temptation.

To understand the true face of our existence,
A visceral greed,
A venomous rage,
A desire to annihilate all.
Track Name: Oppression
You've come a long way so far,
For someone as disturbed as you.
Let your jealously boil.
You will never escape.
Never to rise again, the victims cry, the bloods been shed.
A lustless war I will justify.

I see you ghost, in the distance.
I scream your name.
I bear the burden, I lay awake at night.

I hear you scratching,
I hear you scratching through the walls.
I bear the burden, I lay awake at night.

I hear you screaming,
I hear you screaming deep in my mind.
I cant escape these thoughts that haunt me.

Whilst I stand here burning, are you actually watching me?
You've failed to realise what I've done for you.

This is a pointless vision,
Now pull me under and drown my subconscious.
Fall into slumber and never rise again.
Now watch me burn alive, to join you at your side.
Now watch me, I will never pacify.
Track Name: Our Time
I've burnt a lot of bridges in my time,
But when it comes to you,
I'd rather burn the whole city down to the ground.

Now watch me, spark the flame.

Please tell me more about myself,
That contradictory tone will get you killed.
How dare you think you're better than me,
What gives you the right to judge?

To be called cheap is rich from a liar and a thief,
Now hang from you high tower and be seen for who you fucking are.

You wear a mask so false and thick,
Your original self is now a ghost,
Just like your heart.
When you're up to your neck in shit,
It's a sign that you've been opening your mouth too fucking much.
It's not a surprise that no-one trusts or believes in you anymore.
It only leaves me to pick up the pieces of whats been broken.
Maybe, just maybe, I should let you fucking jump.
Maybe, just maybe, I should let you fucking jump.

A so called friend, a trusted individual.
You shattered these ties, now I'll watch you burn.

The brotherhoods collapsed, now remove the knife from my back.
Our time is over.

The memory burns, it burns away.
A horror, relentlessly chasing.
A constant reminder of your betrayl.
I'm past remorse.
I'm past regret.
I'm past remorse.
I'm past regret.
Just look me in the eye and tell me you're fucking sorry.

[Long ol' scream]

I've burnt a lot of bridges in my time but when it comes to you,
I'd rather burn the whole city down to the ground.
Track Name: Thorns
When all good things come to an end,
What will remain?
Will we be thrown into shadow, or an endless oblivion?

With empty hands, we fall to our kness
And wait for the earth to swallow us whole.
The time of reckoning is upon us.
Now pray, now pray to her.

The land is scorched and scarred,
The beauty has been laid to waste.
The waters blackened and poisoned,
Tainting the purity of our existence.
As the wind blows the ashes of our fallen nations,
New life is breathed within.

As thorns of steel puncture virgin flesh,
The earth shudders out a single cry.
She withers away, like the lonely rose
Suffocated in a field of snow.
She withers away...

Will we accept the blame?
Will we stand up and fight for change?
Wake up and hear the message.
This shit has got to go.
Wake up.
Wake up.
