Track Name: Keep Your Hope
Keep Your Hope

Part I: Cataclysm(instrumental)

Part II: Wasteland
Rise from the shattered remains of the earth, but this was not a rebirth they took all that we found made us feel alive

Watch as were all marched away under threat, but death will not come for us yet, though we saw things that made us question our lives

Part III: The Invasion

They came down upon us
With lightning and thunder
Some say we deserved this
But it had no purpose!

They came here to slaughter
Bring fire upon us
And the few that live onward
Made slaves for their valor

Our hope was gone

The will was gone

But one bright spot!

Brought hope to us!

Finally to fight and to live!

Part IV: The Battle(instrumental)

Part V: Keep Your Hope

As the dust fell around me
The sun was just rising
And with all that I could see
I fell to my knees

And then out of the ashes
And into the limelight
Came walking a figure
He said this to me

"We our the victors
And we live on from this day
But always remember
Who fell in their wake!"

I know not who he was
For with that he left me
And together man triumphed

As the years have passed by,
We've found something missing
And though we have moved on
What was the cost?

United we stood then
And together we proved then
That man as a whole can
Survive in this life

But something is needed,
From there we've retreated
But my heart still retains it
Keep it close
Keep your hope
Track Name: Crumbling Skyline
Crumbling Skyline

i have ascended from the depths of man
once bearing the fruition of life
now a ruinous wasteland rife with death

i watch the world burn
the helpless inhabitants left forlorn
every life abandoned and stillborn
this destruction has no bounds
take my hand as your world is plunged into oblivion
my entity now beyond the sky departed of life

there is no hope
indulge into reminiscence of what once was
your future will never be seen
as the fire blinds your eyes
shadows of your former self now paint desolate landscape
history has come full circle as i await utter destruction with no escape

i have long perished to the deconstructed skyline
i have transcended the scriptures of the ancients
the heavens have been crippled to my might
unveiling these universal secrets
has only revealed a destined outcome
the fall of man

manifest hate as the ground trembles and quakes
manipulate minds to control everyone’s fate
this is destiny
all will be purged under the might of the storm
fire will sear the flesh that you once worn
fear all that could not be perceived
let this be the moment; rue the very day you were conceived

death follows close
this earth has become your tomb
imprisoned where you stand
a destined outcome
the fall of man
Track Name: Cataclysmic Dawning
I fear the end of time
Has arrived
to claim countless souls none of which my own.
embrace everlasting darkness as i bury you in your homes

The visceral winds sing blissful hymns
all will perish under the might of sin
Mass murder!
let this be the day when your kinship suffers
your family ties severed like the limbs of the fallen.

I, the reaper follow close
death follows closer!
pure evil harbors no remorse
as the women/children run this course

the flow of blood forged an endless river
and endless crimson tide!
wash the land of all it has to hide
I abide!
to watch this cataclysmic dawning unfold unto man

This Earthly tomb has become what you feared most
a monumental waste land, absolved fruition that you boast

the innocent linger in the streets awaiting the end
begging for death
laying on their backs looking to the sky
until their out of breath

this cataclysmic dawning
is the end of time
cataclysmic dawning
buried where you stand
cataclysmic dawning
this world is mine
