Oblivion Cycle

1.
Colossus 04:32
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
2.
Memories 04:48
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
3.
Acid Reign 05:55
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
4.
Dark Tower 02:32
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
5.
The Locust 03:24
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
6.
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
7.
Faith Healer 04:13
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
8.
Red Eyes 03:00
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
9.
Never Forget 03:31
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
10.
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
