LYRICS

Arab Spring

Theres a black dog on my doorstep, He lived like he died,
As a ravenous tyrannous pet

so make way, there’ll be less haste
As I will only say this once, you cannot stay

Born again, a new lease on pain
Sheer waves, take the dead, wholely consumed by dread
Frost stings and holds our limbs,
Can we justify and unite, The tribe
Winter brings the same old things
But little care for this plight

There’s a dead dog on my doorstep, she lived like she died
As if every were her last breath
Rise again, but who will reign?
A new noose maybe cut loose
Deceit, use for the end

With a blast the seasons pass, will your nation fall
But our fear for the future, a new dictator for all

Fight or doomed to live under me
Lie or doomed to live on your knees
Fight or doomed to live under me
Lie or doomed to live

Emerald Lord of Pleasure

Underground and already wasted away
Await the golden ones we wanna come out and play
Replace the chalice your rotten throne and tomb
Emerald Lord of Pleasure destroyed in the plumes YEAH!

Unlock the gateway, look into the visionary womb
Birthplace of destiny, hypnotized by the cosmic loom
Weaved into ritual, never could take it away
Now you feel the power, lose gravity begin to sway YEAH!

Stoned until the end (X8)

Interesting where you feel you come from, I don’t know if I was born or grew from ground
Maybe that’s why they made me, so I could melt and become just sound
I stare into the future, walk every inch of every past
I know we have one destiny, I realize it’ll never last
Drink fresh they still have memory, hold the truth and never condemn
Pass knowledge through trancendancy for you know you live just like them
Stoned until the end (X8)

The Hallion

You won’t seem ignorant I haven’t seen that at all
Beg for deliverance witness the fall
For I'm your only God the hallion who will reign
I give you death to rebuild saviour in his name
Drowning in oceans filled with dreams
Through a drink filled land, we breathe the seed
Rule with bottle in hand, the creed, we bleed
Become the hallion who reigns in vein
You won’t seem petulant I haven’t seen that at all
King of indulgence bound by the thrall
For now you play the slave the hallion is your name
For you own righteousness dishonour holds the same
The first convention of the hallionati Brought waves of cosmic debris
A dark lesson in self preservation
A master class of debauchery
Through a drink filled land, we breathe the seed
Rule with bottle in hand the creed we bleed
Save your wit now left in tatters
The poison so sweetly laced
As destruction rained from the rafters
Your temperance laid to waste
Well I’m still man, the hallion is my name
We will drink this whole land dry and belligerence will reign.

The Oath

Blood sacrifice I wanna know how does it feel to be this low
A blessed curse for stardoms hearse, drive to infinity
Live in infamy yeah!

Blood sacrifice, begin the show, rip it up and watch it flow
Warrior fold, a hero bold
Holy debauchery, toasted eternity yeah!
Gods who float in outer space, I live as master of this race
I'm trapped in the story, locked in the memories
To rule the kingdom, to sit on the throne
It would not pervert me, for it is homegrown
Let it rock let it ride, golden grass of the gods let it rise (X4)
Let it rise (X4)

Urban Brawl

The beast awakens, raises his head
He won’t seem evil but hes sealed your fate

It’s a numbers game that you could lose it makes you hard it makes you choose
For your number one get the fuck out my way
Don’t ask for forgiveness, consumed in the fray

Whoa! I’m still earthbound, whoa! Long way to the underground

He’s braved it all, you're push and fall
Never learned this place, you could be floating in outer space

Whoa! I’m still earthbound, whoa! Long way to the underground

A life filled with dread, should have stayed in bed
Bright light and contact, something human nature never lacked

Whoa! No friends to be found, whoa! A new king is crowned
Whoa! I’m still earthbound, whoa! Long way to the underground

Cowering in the streets, afraid of who you might meet
We don’t feel oppressed, living in Satan’s nest

Swimming in this disease, drowning in these alleys, living on your knees

Survival of the fit, consumed whole by the fucking pit
Gotta climb to the top or left screaming ‘please, please stop!’

Swimming in this disease, drowning in these alleys, living on your knees

Raised in a cesspool, you'd eat your own kind, for a lesser evil or a lesser crime but I don’t blame you for I know I do the same, its dog eat dog but there’s only you to blame!
