Track Name: Demon of the Dune Sea
The Desert steals our souls
Rising like the suns at dawn
Twin cowards slow return
Guardians of our graven sojourn

The Storyteller warns
Offworlders blood must be drawn
For a Demon rules the waste
And a hunger we must embrace

Brethren of the Dunes
On the rise above the Bloodless Wound
To a path that’s lined with bones
Center of remembrance stones

Harbingers of doom
Have turned our seas into our tombs
For this we sacrifice
To sate the Devil’s appetite

Circles drawn
With weapons raised
On sacred ground
Vermin’s chained
Steel on Flesh
Blood on Sand
With cries to the sky
We make our stand


We ask the wicked
To judge us with mercy
We ask the Unseen
To grant us sight
We ask the Silent
To steal the sound from our steps
We ask the Shadows
To lead us back to the light
Track Name: Oh Death
O, Death. O, Death.
Won't you spare me over til another year?

My mother came to my bed
Placed a cold towel upon my head.
My head is warm, my feet are cold
Death is a-movin' upon my soul.
Oh death how you're treatin' me
You've close my eyes so I can't see.
Well you're hurtin' my body You make me cold
You run my life right outta my soul.
Oh death please consider my age,
Please don't take me at this stage.
My wealth is all at your command
If you will move your icy hand.
Oh the old, the young, the rich or poor
All alike to me, you know.
No wealth, no land, no silver no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul.
When God is gone, and the Devil takes hold,
Who'll have mercy on your soul.

O, Death. O, Death.
Won't you spare me over 'til another year?
Track Name: Lethe / Through Gate of Horn and Ivory
LETHE

INTO THE MAW
PATH GREY WITH FATE
TIME WITHOUT END
DEATH EVERLASTING

ALL THIS FORE I GO
I DREAD TO DEPART
BUT I KNOW I CAN’T STAY
AIR THICK WITH TORMENT

INTO THE MAW
THE VENOM SETS SO QUICK
THE SUN FADES AWAY
SHROUDED IN SHADOW

THE HUSK OF A DREAM
LAYS DEAD IN MY ARMS
BY THE FURIES BE DAMNED
LOST IN THIS DARKNESS

THE WATERS BRANCH FORWARD AND DRIFT OUT OF SIGHT
A POISON TO REASON NO CURE TO MY PLIGHT
ALL THIS IN AN INSTANT AND MY JOURNEY BEGINS
PULL THE COIN FROM MY TONGUE AND BARTER MY SIN

OBLIVION CALLS LIKE A SONG IN THE NIGHT
DEAD LOVERS MOURNE AND DISSOLVE INTO LIGHT
WITH ONE DROP I CAN END THIS, IT CAN ALL FADE AWAY
AM I READY TO FORGET ALL I’VE LIVED TO THIS DAY

NIGHT’S TOUCH ON MY SHOULDER
A COLD VOICE IN MY EAR
A PROMISE, A WHISPER
A CHANCE TO PERSERVERE
THIS OFFER IS TEMPTING
IF ONLY I CAN COMPLETE
LAY THE WATERS OF LETHE
AT MEMORY’S FEET

THE DEAD SURROUND, DRAWN LIKE FLIES
DEAFEND BY, TEN THOUSAND CRIES
THEY KNOW MY FATE, TO BE SET FREE
TO EMPTY HELL, JUST FOLLOW ME

SHE CALLS TO ME WHERE THE WHITE POPLARS GROW
SHE SEEMS TO SCHEME IN MY DREAMS
SHE FOLLOWS ME AS THE BLACK WATERS FLOW
PERSEPHONE IS THE KEY
SHE SEEKS REVENGE FOR A LIFE SACRIFICED
A SOLEM SONG UNBEKNOWN
HER TEARS HAVE FILLED EVERY STREAM, EVERY POOL
THE WORLD WILL DROWN TO ATONE

AS THE WATERS MERGE
AS THE VIEL DISSOLVES
I SEE THE GATE REVEALED, THE REASON FOR THIS ALL
I KNOW I’M DEAD
BUT I’M MORE THAN ALIVE
I STALK ACROSS THE PLANES, I WILL NOT BE DENIED

AS BELOW SHALL IT BE ABOVE.
