Track Name: Colossus
Colossus

Designed to protect and defeat the Enigma machine
Intelli-connections for welfare and warfare, contained
Colossus embodies the progress of mankind toward peace
But circuits have shifted, malfunction and havoc released

Blinded by digital controls
Programmed to save our souls
The system has threatened us all
Colossus will be our downfall

Advancing illusions, we’re shielded to social decay
Detecting new pathways, it travels and starts to create

Blinded by digital controls
Programmed to save our souls
The system has threatened us all
Colossus now too strong to fall

Wired for treason, sheltered from light of the sun
An empire rises, sets fire to the analog world
The future detached, from the spirits that guides us today
Now the technical forces snuff out torches that beacon our way
Track Name: Memories
Memories

We’ve been hanging onto dusted memories
Clouded visions of a past that’s faded

Something in our passion died
Which memories won’t heal
Holding on to better times
In our memories

Need forgiveness for our inabilities
Disconnect us from the pain that binds us

Something in our passion died
Which memories won’t heal
Holding on to better times
In our memories

Dusted off these troubled times
Changed the way we feel
Left behind the present grind
In our memories

We’d been hanging on to dusted memories
Track Name: Acid Reign
Acid Reign

Shackled and chained to a life they can’t escape
Overthrown by the power of few
Dominate lands when they can’t sustain their growth
The war of shock and awe has now commenced

Acid Reign

Sheltered and kept from all things they can control
Freedom is masked though they’re free to speak
They bow to the kings of the things they’ve grown to love
Complacency it breeds in the souls of men

Acid Reign

Hate breeds, across the waters, as they've taken control
Break free, from the masses and get out on your own

The people cry out underneath the Acid Reign
And they fall down to their knees and pray
Darkens the sky as the gloom it overtakes
Blinding the eyes of the common man

Acid Reign
Track Name: Dark Tower
Dark Tower

Sheltered through the centuries
Archaic spires cloaked by darkness
Once thought enlightened
The tower’s dwarfed by one much stronger

Lost but not forgotten
The distance marks the hours
The words unspoken
Trapped within the darkened tower

Now shade grows all around
Twisting, smoke rings rising
The light near vanquished
Stifled by a single sound
Track Name: The Locust
The Locust

He feeds on the milk of your mother
And cries out for more when she’s raw
He feeds on society’s blessings
And rapes the wealth from the world

He is the locust
The locust
Desecrated by the locust

He possesses insatiable hunger
And needs your piece to feel whole
Survives on blood like a vampire
He grows on power and control

He is the locust
The locust
Desecrated by the locust

He is the locust
The locust
Desecrated by the locust
The locust
Track Name: Wings of Steel
Wings of Steel

I don't want those people telling me what our kids are dying for
I won't let them be turned into wings of steel flown off to war
I'm not listening to minds diseased by the rich and powerful
I won't propagate their war machine, protecting the unknown

They will break you down
They will steal your hope
They will strip your mind
And they'll crush your soul

I see our kids filling the streets with blood of which their born
Their blood flows into oil that fuels economies of war
The Lords, they lead without a shred of shame or true remorse
Their promises are built upon foundations black as coal

They will break you down
They will steal your hope
They’ll control your mind
And they'll crush you…

Deception deepens man’s belief and faith in Gods of war
Who grind our youth to feed their trust machines
Those people pull strings to ensure their flock’s not lost among our sheep Who’ll do their billing fooled by everything…and I know they want YOU

I don't want those people telling me what our kids are dying for
I won't let them be turned into wings of steel flown off to war
I'm not listening to minds diseased by the rich and powerful
Won't propagate their war machine, protecting the unknown

They will break you down
They will steal your hope
They will keep you calm
While they crush your soul
Track Name: Faith Healer
Faith Healer

They are watching and waiting
To grant you escape from the agony of life
When the spirit and grace overwhelms you
A handler guides you to the front of the line

You, you have a hole in your soul
You, you seek the mercy of God
Through the hands of a healer

You start twisting and shaking
The touch of his hand lights a spark that ignites you inside

Cause you, you have a hole in your soul
Yeah you, you seek the mercy of God
From the hands of a healer

You, you have a hole in your soul
No, you, don’t see the truth of it all
You can’t trust the faith healer
Track Name: Red Eyes
Red Eyes

It's holy water blessed by sun which brings our seeds to life
It's our cold artillery which guards them in the night
Our daily rituals brings forth the initial sprouts of green
Crystals burn and explode the sky, painting cosmic scenes

Red eyes

Passed around for generations, fostered by the youth
Calming herbs they scent the air, connecting us with truth
Joining those who gather to enjoy their sacred rite
Separating us from angst, brought on by daily plight

Red eyes

How long until we learn
To let our Mother burn

Demonized and vilified by those who trade in fear
The healing strains were once oppressed by contra-profiteers
They dig up roots and scorch the stalks while pocketing the prize
Those hypocrites soon trampled by our army of red eyes

Red eyes
Track Name: Never Forget
Never Forget

Your crimes along the path you have chosen
Become reflections of the man you shall be
Politicians sell us swindles and tell us lies
For which we may sometimes forgive…
But can never forget

Never forget

Shameful actions of the historic leaders
Are repeated by our leaders today
Our nations have all paved over flesh and blood
The worst tragedies at the hands of men…
And we can never forget

Never forget

Or the cycle will spiral round and carry on once more
Track Name: March of the Damned
March of the Damned

I watch you suffer
Like sacrificial lambs
The flesh you offered
Is now a price upon your head

You writhe in pain – alright
Drives you insane

Darkest of demons
Plaguing your minds
Heaving and seething
To escape your wretched lives

You scream my name – oh yeah
You won’t be saved

The march of the damned

Destroyed the mountains
To forge your path of sorrow
Burned up the oceans
Weren’t living for tomorrow…no

You scream my name – alright
But you’re to blame

The march of the damned
