Track Name: A World Unknown
take my hand
I'll take you there
we'll go beyond the dark
through skies of fire
and death undreamed
we'll fall upon the earth

follow the old ones
we're falling
into a world unknown
they're calling out to us
out from the world beyond

I know what they'll reveal
they'll show the things unseen
with time denied
and stars aligned
they'll shake the worlds between

follow the old ones
we're falling
into a world unknown
they're calling out to us
out from the world beyond

with fire in hand
we'll burn alive
we'll light the way beyond
we'll see them fall
below the earth
we'll lead them to the end

follow the old ones
we're falling
into a world unknown
they're calling out to us
out from the world beyond
Track Name: Black Smoke
black smoke rising
a secret razed to the ground
a bed of flame
for dead flesh
closing in and coming down

the night begins its work, I'm left for dead
the fires know my name, they light the way
I'm following the trail of blood, I left behind
swallowed by the flames that burn, my soul's on fire

A bed of flame
A nest of snakes
A cursed name
A tempting fate
I see it all
slowing down to a crawl
Oh I see it fall
going down with my soul

her eyes release my mind, I'm lost inside
she knows a pain divine, it's all I find
the darkness hides the heart, it leads me down
she leaves me in her wake, I'm all around

A bed of flame
A nest of snakes
A cursed name
A tempting fate
I see it all
slowing down to a crawl
Oh I see it fall
going down with my soul

oh I see it all
oh I see it all
oh I see it all
oh I see it all

black smoke
black smoke

black smoke
Track Name: Waiting For Death
waiting for death
waiting for you
waiting for all
I'll be waiting to break you when you fall

we're in denial
we're in a dream
we're in a dance
we'll be dancing when hell is asking

under the spell
under so well
under it now
now we're one with the spell we're under

I'm holding out
I'm holding down
I'm holding on
I've been holding the night at bay for so long

here all along
but I'm gonna fade
nothing is known
but I'm not afraid
to die
It's all I have that's mine
take me down
I see it all the time

I see the end of the line
it's everything I cannot deny
I'm leaving my heart alone by the side
And all of the signs that show me I'm lyin'

All the times that I've known I've fallen
are only everything I'm holding onto
the things that I knew
I'm following you into the abuse

don't believe in the answer I just cannot say
ask but don't look in my eyes

you'll be surprised if you turn to see and then just look away
the truth is that you're gonna die

waiting for death
waiting for you
waiting to see
I'll be waiting to see the ending

You're all alone
You're out in the cold
You're on your own
You're in over your head you know again

It's all around
It's all I found
It's with us now
Now you're starting to know what's holding you

You're holding out
You're holding down
You're holding on
You've been holding the night at bay for so long

known all along
that you're gonna fade
nothing is known
but you're not afraid
to die
It's all that's in your eyes
take us down
We'll see the end of time

I see the end of the line
it's everything I cannot deny
I'm leaving my heart alone by the side
And all of the signs that show me I'm lyin'

All the times that I've known I've fallen
are only everything I'm holding onto
the things that I knew
I'm following you into the abuse

don't believe in the answer I just cannot say
ask but don't look in my eyes

you'll be surprised if you turn to see and then just look away
the truth is that you're gonna die

taking your time
to believe what you heard
you see it so
give it a try

your senses are lyin'
and trust is all dead
just ask me
I know what you'll find

search for the answer
you don't wanna know
there's only one way
it's a lie

holding a truth
and it's already old
the only way
you're gonna die
Track Name: Night Cult
Night cult
They're waiting for me
There in the moonlight
They know that I see
Their eyes are inside
The cloak of midnight
They walk among us
There in the darkness

They're hunting me down
They're hiding in the city
They're holding the knife
They're hanging on my every...

Night Cult
They're preying for me
There in the moonlight
They know that I see
Their eyes are inside
The blood of midnight
They walk among us
There in the darkness

They're hunting me down
They're hiding in the city
They're holding the knife
They're hanging on my every...

word

wielding the blade
watching it fade
like light into shade
their eyes burn like a fire
the darkest desire
lost to the night

They're hunting me down
They're hiding in the city
They're holding the knife
They're hanging on my every...

hold me to the light
I'll sacrifice
all that I hide
my eyes burn like a fire
my darkest desire
lost to the night

Hold me to the night
I am inside
It's in my eyes
Track Name: Lay The Bones
I know that the road will meet it
they lay the bones beneath it
I played up to the pain I feel it
I scattered the sands

I know in the past I've beat it
I know that I'm alone
I know there's a place beneath my bones
I'll leave them there

until I choose to pass
the stones will stand
and the sun might beat me into sand
but I'll scatter and I'll lay the bones
Track Name: Pain Of Angels
turn the page towards the soul
enduring ages of my own accord
the pain of angels is a song
and all you offer is a broken word

I'll never see the light
I'll never see the world you know
I'll never come and see
I'll never turn away from hell

I'll never see the light
I'll never see the world you know
I'll never come and see
I'll never turn away from hell

I'll never see
I'll never see

I'll never see the light
I'll never see the world you know
I'll never come and see
I'll never turn away from hell

I'll never see the light
I'll never see the world you know
I'll never come and see
I'll never turn away from hell

away from hell
away from hell
away from hell
away from hell
