Track Name: Choke on the Seeds
Verse 1_
Reach for the heavens
It's always just beyond your grasp
Yet you build your towers
Forged with mortal sorcery

Modern day alchemist
Have you learned nothing from your past?
You can't change lead to gold
Or metal to life

Chorus 1_
Prideful...
Ignorant...
Feckless...
You'll spend your waking days
Toiling in futility

You ate from the tree of knowledge
In your greed you bit off more than you can chew
Damned by your gluttony
Forever doomed to choke on the seeds

Verse 2_
Like a cheap magician
Everyone already knows your tricks
You keep up the illusion
Chained to redundancy

Obsessed with your own pretension
Ambition has made you blind
The truth is a bitter fruit
Your efforts only serve to entertain

Chorus 2_
Prideful...
Ignorant...
Feckless...
You'll spend your waking days
Toiling in futility

You ate from the tree of knowledge
In your greed you bit off more than you can chew
Damned by your gluttony
You are...

FOREVER DOOMED TO CHOKE ON THE SEEDS

[Breakdown 1]

Try as you might
You will never reach
Divinity

Try as you might
You will never reach
Divinity

[Breakdown 2]
Track Name: Dogs of War
Verse 1_
Silence
The fear of impending doom
The clouds circle the battleground
Like scavengers in the sky
Ready to descend upon the carrion
And tear flesh from bone
All while the generals sit inside
Safe from the coming storm

Chorus_
Witness the mass destruction
By your own design
It consumes everything
Leaving nothing in its wake

All are reduced to figures
All numbers but your name
Throw caution to the wind
Unleash the dogs of war

Verse 2_
All hail the invention
Of cowardice
The assailant's face lies hidden
Behind a veil of lead
An entire army of faceless men
Fight in their master's stead
All to prevent a coward's death

Chorus_
Witness the mass destruction
By your own design
It consumes everything
Leaving nothing in its wake

All are reduced to figures
All numbers but your name
Throw caution to the wind
Unleash the dogs of war

[Breakdown 1]

Bridge_
You've hid for so long
That you can't even find yourself
A thin and wasted being
Behind a grand disguise

You're nothing but a useless cur
An orphaned child
The bastard son
Of circumvention

[Guitar solo]

[Breakdown 2]

You're nothing but a useless cur
An orphaned child

You're nothing but a useless cur
An orphaned child

You're nothing but a useless cur
An orphaned child

You're nothing but a useless cur
You're nothing but a useless cur
Track Name: Revolution of Tyranny
Verse 1_
From the ashes of the tyrant
A successor is born
Sired by violence
More depraved and wicked than the last

Years of unending torment
Have increased the knowledge of the art
Through pain the mind is focused
And injustice set in stone

Each reincarnation
Is built upon its predecessor
The evolution of tyranny
Is grounded in past lessons learned

Enter...
A new level of Hell

Chorus_
Repetition
Is the child of contempt
The act of torture
Begets its continuance

Fueled by hatred
With a heart turned to stone
He who was once tortured
Becomes the torturer

Verse 2_
To object is defiance
The truth is a lie
Steadfast in your obstinance
The prison soon becomes your home

Feel the darkness penetrate
The very fiber of your being
That which is lost to the void
Is forever gone

Evil cannot be mortal
So long as hate remains alive
The embers of suffering
Still glow with the pain inflicted

Enter...
A new level of Hell

Chorus_
Repetition
Is the child of contempt
The act of torture
Begets its continuance

Fueled by hatred

With a heart turned to stone
He who was once tortured
Becomes the torturer

[Guitar solo]

Verse 3_
From the ashes of the tyrant
A successor is born
Sired by violence
More depraved and wicked than the last

Years of unending torment
Have increased the knowledge of the art
Through pain the mind is focused
And injustice set in stone

Rise up from your sorrow
Your predecessor dead beneath your feet
Take your rightful place
The circle is complete
