Track Name: Mirrorborn
Listen
They echo in the wind
Hear cries from the past lives
Echo historia
Born
They're born in us again
Life's seed fulfill my need
Echo historia

Helena Guinevere
Francesca the same tears
Heloise Thisbe
Cries mirror through the years
I watched her slip away
False fear - it leads us astray
Not broken but not whole
Embrace the light

Rest dear
Feel my heartbeat in yours
If you stay I swear we'll take this world

Set your sails to Avalon
Long before our story ends

Feels like I'm chasing
Nothing but shadows and dust
Time's now erasing
Warmth and ardor of lust

A tale of human history
We're in good company
Guinevere in you I see
Echo historia
Story old but the sky's still blue
Recycled plot but the characters new
Cursed nature Your glory
Echo historia

Helena Guinevere
Francesca the same tears
Heloise Thisbe
Cries mirror through the years
I watched her slip away
False fear it leads us astray
Not broken but not whole
Embrace the light

Rest dear
Feel my heartbeat in yours
If you stay I swear we'll take this world

Set your sails to Avalon
Long before our story ends

Feels like I'm chasing
Nothing but shadows and dust
Time's now erasing
Warmth and ardor of lust

Track Name: Existence Asunder
Did you really think you ripped a still beating heart from my chest?
Well I got another thing comin' for ya, bitch
This story is never going to end
Immortality

That day I looked into the sky
I guess this is goodbye
That day I looked into your eyes
And all I could do was cry

My flame
Is now my enemy
In the end
All we have is dreams
This is the melody
To break chains in life
How will we ever see with closed eyes
This is the melody
Let this dry your eyes
Will you ever see
My friend
Is now my enemy
Yet we stand

Wake up now rise and shine
We'll march on 'til the end of fucking time
Take no pity on the weak
To the ends of the earth
For what I seek
Wake up rise and shine
We'll march on 'til the end of time

That day I looked into the sky
I guess this is goodbye
That day I looked into your eyes
And all I could do was cry

My flame
Is now my enemy
In the end
All we have is dreams
This is the melody
To break chains in life
How will we ever see with closed eyes
This is the melody
Let this dry your eyes
Will you ever see
My friend
Is now my enemy
Yet we stand

[Solo: Tidwell]

Track Name: Your Heaven's Falling
Faith - masked blind belief
Ivory towers bring reprieve
Shielding cold facts
Dark motives now buried beneath
Intentions pure
You con masses con me no more
Covertly let slip the dogs of war

Faith - thought forced retreat
Horrors of history repeat
Cure me heal me of this fictitious disease
Calm me while we covertly let slip the dogs of war

Tell them they were born all wrong
Offer a cure to the plague that you installed
Pull the blinds poison minds
Learn to ignore desperate cries

Lost in a dream
Counterfeit charity and honor the scheme
False prophets - progress the lie
Divine decree - bigotry glorified

Fools gather - embrace the myth
False hope - terrified just to exist
Gold crowns, sky kings, fractured souls, torn wings
Your heaven's falling

Truth was lost inside a dream
Masquerade of holiness and praise the wicked theme
False oracles eternalize a lie
Divine decree, raise the flag of bigotry high

Come one come all
Join us the guarantee true knowledge will fall
Son, heed the words, ignorance is bliss
Never question, no thoughts, just spread the myth

Paradise is black and the clouds are grey
Will you look back on this dying day
Swell up with hope wait for your name
Why did our father close the gate?

Your fucking heaven's falling down
Track Name: Feed the Flame
Draw it in
Spit it out
Accept gift called life and
Enjoy a momentary high

Just a spark in his eyes
Take aim for our targets well beyond these skies
Now a flicker
But a blaze will rise
Blaze rise

Feed the flame
Witness embers that glow
Turn to inferno
Break away
Revel in tomorrow
Escape the cycle of sorrow

Whisper yourself to sleep at night
Knowing on the walls of time we write
On the walls of time we write
The story of our days
Snap out of destructive haze

Feed the flame
Witness embers that glow
Turn to inferno
Break away
Revel in tomorrow
Escape the cycle of sorrow

[Solo: Tidwell]

Down
Where thoughts are free
Going down
Locked door lost key
Going down
Where the mind machine is the only sound
Going down
Where thoughts are free
Going down
Locked door lost key
Going down

Feed the flame
Witness embers that glow
Turn to inferno
Break away
Revel in tomorrow
Escape the cycle of sorrow
Track Name: Halo Delusion
You can't see your blindness
But you know I can
No pity for the fools
Waste what time that you have

And now you wait for the reckoning
Of that hollow soul
I'd love to be your savior
We just can't hold

Let go now, but hold on to the miracles
It's a beautiful dream
A dream of all humanity
The great deluded truth

I always ask the sky for an answer
With the same return
I am a hollow shell
Where a man once stood

Fire
You are all enslaved
Hidden darkness of this world
Fire
You should be ashamed
Yet remain the light in my world

I am the word
I am the way
Curse the light that leads astray
I am the dark
I am the day
Your placebo withers away
I am the strength
I am the weak
Those simple thoughts you keep
I am the all
I am the only
As you sleep

Fear now, but hold onto the miracles
It's a wonderful thought
No invisible noose around this neck
Join me

Fire
You are all enslaved
Hidden darkness of this world
Fire
You should be ashamed
Yet remain the light in my world

I am the word
I am the way
Curse the light that leads astray
I am the dark
I am the day
Your placebo withers away
I am the strength
I am the weak
Those simple thoughts you keep
I am the all
I am the only
As you sleep

[Solo: Tidwell]

I am the word
I am the way
Curse the light that leads astray
I am the dark
I am the day
Your placebo withers away
I am the strength
I am the weak
Those simple thoughts you keep
I am the all
I am the only
Track Name: The Forge of Empty Souls
Now follow me deeper into the world that I see
There's no demons beneath and no divine decree
Heaven is myth god a lie
Clinging to fables the gift of strength to die

We are the bringers of our destiny
With open eyes you can live a life and not just dream
Deluded thoughts block true cerebration
Now join the dance of life

In the dark I'll be the light to guide you
No need for those myths or
Lies we say to keep away our pain
Needlessly praying for strength

Across this moonlit sky
The millions and millions ask why
They have been betrayed
By the one divine true king

The human spirit's stronger than they feel
Defeat
The light comes shining bright unless you kneel

Now follow me deeper into the chasm of time
Deception proud tradition of our blood line
Tell the weaklings what they want to hear
Obey in this life and your reward is near

In the dark I'll be the light to guide you
No need for those myths or
Lies we say to keep away our pain
Needlessly praying for strength

Across this moonlit sky
The millions and millions ask why
They have been betrayed
By the one divine true king

The human spirit's stronger than they feel
Defeat
The light comes shining bright unless you kneel

[Solo: Tidwell]

In the dark I'll be the light to guide you
No need for those myths or
Lies we say to keep away our pain
Needlessly praying for strength

Across this moonlit sky
The millions and millions ask why
They have been betrayed
By the one divine true king
Track Name: When Roses Bleed
Look at this man who's lost his dream
And wonders why the roses bleed
You listen now to my momentary escape
As this life just fades away

No second chance to be more
Than we are now
Tomorrow is no guarantee
That's my solace
Take this gift, the knowledge now bestowed
Take it and seek
The only thing which matters
The momentary escape

The momentary escape
There is no cure
These moments are all that is
As I watch my roses bleed

Look at the nature of the lifestream
And all the bloody roses past
So go find it now, that momentary escape
Before your life fades away

Your life fades away
These moments are all that is
The roses bleed
They'll betray

Tomorrow is no guarantee
That's my solace
Take this gift, the knowledge now bestowed
Time won't stop for you

[Solo: Tidwell]

When roses bleed
Track Name: Installation 04 (September 2552)
The mighty Spartan awakes
117
If they could damned Covenant would
Glass the heavens

Invasion of evil on Harvest
Preserve our
Harvest's song
Virtue of mistranslation
The warmth of
Harvest gone

Born to devour sentient life
Shroud worlds in virulent endless ice
Into the fray
On Halo our Pillar of Autumn lays

Installation 04
Flood unleashed
Cause for war
Guided by Cortana's call
Dust and echoes remain and that's all

Gods and demons I have defied
I am your shield your sword your guide
Past and future: I know you, dear friend
This is the way the world we know ends

The future of man is at stake
Rely on flip of a coin
We make our own luck not fate
Eidolons we join

Bedlam descends on Harvest
Preserve our
Harvest's song
Glassed by the Covenant bastards
The warmth of
Harvest gone

Born to devour sentient life
Shroud worlds in virulent endless ice
In to the fray
On Halo our Pillar of Autumn lays

Installation 04
Flood unleashed
Cause for war
Guided by Cortana's call
Dust and echoes remain and that's all

Gods and demons I have defied
I am your shield your sword your guide
Past and future: I know you, dear friend
This is the way the world we know ends

[Solo: Tidwell]

Track Name: Stars Align
The stars are forming torches
Light up the sky
Save for the morning
Let em' burn

You light up, tear out my eyes
Shine so bright
I let night claim day
To watch you cry

I see a million choices
Hide the voices
Kill the noises
I see the morning star within you

I see a million choices
Hide the voices
Kill the noises
I see the morning star in you

Stars align for you
The cloudy mind says it's true
I die with you
As I take the last step toward insanity

You took the last thread of my sanity

I see a million choices
Hide the voices
Kill the noises
I see the morning star within you

I see a million choices
Hide the voices
Kill the noises
I see the morning star in you

Stars align for you
The cloudy mind says it's true
I die with you
As I take the last step toward insanity

You took the last thread of my sanity

[Solo: Tidwell]
Track Name: Terracide
Mother Earth in pain
No resource to save
Her voice, now fading
Man a dying race
Join this fight too late
Rejoice while raping our fading light

Time runs out
The time has run out
For our mother

Terracide
I now hear your glorious cry
Terracide
A wholly blackened sky
Terracide
Our pale blue dot is forged anew
Terracide
Mother Earth we're rid of you

The DNA that flows through you
Traced to the beginning of time
Linked through aeons this world and us are one
A beautiful truth

Eyes overflow with pain
As our mother divine strips this vale away
Timeless night it's the end
Man's late screams are in vain
The planet predator turned prey
Erased light in the end

Terracide
I now hear your glorious cry
Terracide
A wholly blackened sky
Terracide
Our pale blue dot is forged anew
Terracide
Mother Earth we're rid of you

[Solo: Tidwell]

Terracide
I now hear your glorious cry
Terracide
A wholly blackened sky
Terracide
Our pale blue dot is forged anew
Terracide
Mother Earth we're rid of you
