Track Name: Crucible of Light
Sunrise, crucible of light
Oracular presence, enshrined
Golden dawn, blessed by Apollo’s rays
Solar beams intertwined
Now, claiming our eyes
Ablaze, baptise
None halt your rise

Dawn will claim my eyes
Radiant high
Ablaze, arise
Morning star

As its luminescence nears
A healing sphere
Darkness disappears
Helios severs the fading night
Aurora incandescent
Circadian flight
Searing, diurnal light

Dawn will claim my eyes
Radiant high
Ablaze, arise
Golden dawn will claim my eyes
Radiant high
Ablaze, arise
Morning star
Track Name: Efference
She lies here endlessly
Held in dreamless waking sleep

Here, further beyond
Where waves stand still
Like light I cannot hold

Silently trapped by impulse latency
Adrift on waves unfeeling
Preserved in air I’ll never see

Wander far from the real
Where water sleeps, like light I cannot feel
I’m here, waiting behind these quiet eyes
Efference still holds me

Don’t go
I’m here, just behind the glass
If I could, if I knew how, I would join you

Wander far from the real
Where water sleeps, like light I cannot feel
I’m here, waiting behind these quiet eyes
Efference still holds me

Alive
The deafening azure breaks over me
A current of colour dyes my sea
Awash in vibrant lucidity
Track Name: This Hollow Affliction
Left dormant, a festering plague
Is sleeping in my withered skin
Hope delayed
Frail limbs stir in the harrowing still
A threnody of memory
Fears fulfilled by your will

Awake on the altar
Scent of corruption, resolve falters
Air of atrophy fades
Cast the world in darker shades

Pale hands, furtive with spite
Gather the grey light
Some fall, some will rise
Gain not the waking eyes
Sallow shades will slake this dusk
Endure, in grief entrust

Raised on the flesh, my struggle declines
By the shadows, my lifeblood consign
No deliverance, nor sanctuary from decay
Blistering radiance, lead me into the grey

Set in my veins, I embrace this fire
I offer my flesh to your silent wrath
Fuel my torment, you hollow affliction
Track Name: Of Dawn
Cold fear sets in, caught in my skin
Carried like shade on wind

Never shall I breathe of the morn
Faith forlorn
The sun undone, withdrawn
No dawn
Track Name: Phosphorous
Darkness has fallen, a liberating veil
Restless, we steel our minds
Anguish and agony, death by the flame
This fate, we leave behind
One shall remain, ensuring our passage
His sacrifice taken on trust
Gladly he’ll walk with the phoenix through death
Together, their bodies to dust

Forlorn, resigned to the flame, approach the pyre
As condemning their bones, a trial by fire
Abhor, abate, cremate

Stood on the brink, my thoughts cold and still
Watching my brothers take flight
Quenching their hate with nuclear fire
Devouring their light
Bathing together in fission of flame
I confirm all their fears
Willingly burning as cold entombs me
Our victory seeps in my veins
Mind resolved, I sound the bell for their judgement
Their end of days

Sharing the fate of the zealots, I burn
An illusion of ruin allows no return
Cloaked in this fierce conflagration
Like phosphorous burning my skin
As the veil lifts, welcome the dawn
Be free of your sin

Absolution divine
This flesh, a blazing shrine

Darkness has fled, the veil undone
Announced by the cold light of dawn
The wind arises and hollow men stir
Witness a phoenix reborn
Eye for an eye, their judgement arrived
By way of their bodies, now scarred
Sentenced to wander the earth under shadow
Forsworn in the eyes of their god
Track Name: Whispers of the Moon
Lost to endless sleep
This mortal tide will carry me
To the deep

Set in darkness
Rise in light
Nurture silence
Embrace the night

In soothing dark, I’ll stay
The roaring light is fading away
Earnestly embracing me
I occupy the astral sea

A lifetime to rephrase
Sail on undiscovered waves
Sating my eternal gaze

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light
I’ve loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night
Through a haze of astral clarity, I guide my weary skin
I am deafened by the whispers of the moon and of her kin
Track Name: The Mortal Tide
Once we stood
On the shore of the living
Now she drifts away
Out of my reach
Afloat on her ocean of slumber

Awakened to pleas of despair
A bargain born of grief
You would commit all you are
Body and soul
To buy her release
Deliver yourself to me, she shall be free
If you hope to follow her, be warned
I grant no return

Light fades away and all is grey
As instinct is denied
The river flows with him in tow
Obey the mortal tide
Submerged, he lay, his thoughts decay
The current pulling strong
No sense of time, just death sublime
The waking world is gone

Through torrents of biting rain
Embracing the deep
Into the maelstrom of pain
Beneath waves of eternal sleep

Eyes open, surface now
Stand in the shallows beyond the real
She’s waiting
The river flows
It draws below

Through the mists ahead her soul is shining still
In the half-light of perdition’s chill
You resolve to follow, death defied
Face the current, betray the tide

The water stills
A sudden chill

Ascending from the water
You will know my strength
Your deceit lies in ruins
I claim you

Through torrents of biting rain
Embraced by the deep
Into the maelstrom of pain
Beneath waves of eternal sleep
