Release: Of Winter Born


1. Avarice

This is the tale of mankind’s bitter struggle
To survive in this savage world
A tale twisted with insatiable lust and betrayal

A slave no longer
Gone is my hunger
Outcast no longer

This is the tale of mankind’s endless struggle
To survive in this savage world
To quench the lust of a thousand hungry human souls
Fulfilling our natural desires

A craving that no one can control
It will eventually swallow us all

My eyes are slowly turning red
With a false sense of hope in my head

Greed will burn a hole in their hearts
They will never have enough

This is a tale of a bitter struggle
To survive in this savage world

We all have needs that must fulfilled
But the greed of mankind is relentless
Excess indulgence fed by its own success

The end of the race lies within our hands
To escape the avarice of man

This is the tale of mankind’s endless struggle
This is the world we have created
Now we must save ourselves from ourselves
This is the world we have created

2. Deeds Of Days Long Gone

And as the dust begins to clear
The body revealed our broken hero
Stripped of life, left for dead

And as he stares into the newborn rising sun
The light of truth will finally shine upon the darkness of ignorance
Now all that remains are these memories of days long gone

His sacrifice
The life he lived or the life he served
He gave his life to save this world with no thought of his own

And as the light begins to fade away from his withering world
The light will shine again for us for he has saved our souls
Gone but not forgotten, he will be remembered
Gone but not forgotten, he has saved our souls

3. Elegance In Aggression

For the things you’ve done I will act swift revenge
I have nothing left to say to you, negotiations are now closed
Only I can hear your prayers tonight and I’m afraid I will not answer

The irony you beg to repent for my agony beg for mercy
So finally you pay the price and heal to me your dark master
I have dreamt of this moment and I have waited too long
Slowing draining the life you hold the power that flows in your soul

The end of your life lies in my hands as I hold you like a helpless puppet
Tormenting with every command
I’ve been waiting for the life that you once held
To fall between the realms of this fallen world

Welcome to the realm where time stands still
As you sense the ending of life fighting the inevitable
The end of your life lies in my hands
And your cries for forgiveness falling upon deaf ears

4. The Saviour

I’ve said that all my life I’ve waited for so much more
A chance to rise up, prove myself and save this world
I am the hero in every way
Just waiting for my reckoning day

I was always meant
To be something more
Then this worthless life
I will save this world

And as the darkness closes in
I must embrace this destiny
I will sacrifice my own
Life for their sins, for your sins
The final day has dawned
And I approach my certain death
I feel a sudden chill as I gaze
Upon my certain death

I’ve said that all my life I’ve waited for so much more
A chance to rise up, prove myself and save this world
I am the hero in every way
Just waiting for my reckoning day

I was meant, to be something more than this worthless life
I will save this world
Bow down to me for I am your saviour
I am the hero
I am your saviour

5. Of Winter Born

Can you hear the sound of silence In the air tonight
Here at the end of humanity we cry for our salvation
We are now at mercy to the unstoppable one
The only escape from this ending of reality

Outcast by society it will surely never help us
Beg for forgiveness to one of winter born

Banished to frigid planes of eternal winter
Conditions no mortal man could survive alone
A creature most strange although of human form
Once a man, now manipulated far, far beyond

Driven insane by the torture of his own self hatred
A state of mind only the cruelty of man could have created

We are now at mercy to the unstoppable one
Beg for forgiveness to one of winter born
Here at the end of it all
We can only pray
And after all, it’s all we deserve

Can you hear the sound of silence In the air tonight?
Beg for forgiveness to one of winter born

6. Solitude

Alone, so alone, never have I been here on my own
The only friend that I have left is the sound of my own hollow voice

Cold, cold bitterness
Bitter thoughts dominate my head, confined to this cold solitude
Wasted lives, wasted times
Hopeless, truly hopless times

Trapped in a world of my own despair
This weight I carry is too much to bear

Nothing to live for, nothing to breathe
Nothing left to love
Confined to my cold solitude, never have I been so alone
Trapped in my eternal, my eternal winter tomb

Home, this realm that I call home
This place will soon become my tomb
A thousand nights seemed to have passed
My endurance wearing thin, I dare to think how much more I’ll last

Trapped in a world of my own despair
This weight I carry is too much to bear

7. Dynasty Damnation

An ancient prophecy was once foretold to me
It told me stories of an immortal dynasty
In a place beyond these mortal sands
In these godforsaken lands
In the realm of darkest perplexity

To speak these words of such unholyness
Would let the sons of blood finally reign free
Unleashing their insatiable blood lust
We mortals are but shadows and dust
Uncontrollably, my body is taken over
I whisper the words

The words wrap around me as the lights fade
And my mind is dismembered from my body
The prophecy fulfilled
I have become an aid to this darkest tranquillity

To speak these words of such unholyness
Would let the sons of blood finally reign free
Unleashing their insatiable blood lust
We mortals are but shadows and dust
What have I unleashed upon this world

The reign of terror will now begin
The barrier between the realms is broken
The shadows surround the room
The reign of terror will now begin
Death will be the only end

They bring only death and leave only pain
You should give up now for you have nothing to gain
Striking the fear into the very souls of man
There seems no hope for us now

But this is not the end of the prophecy
It tells of a mere mortal soul
That can end this nightmare
But still I cannot bring myself to see the end

8. Tide Of Pestilence

On the first night of moon light full
A rift between the worlds
Rancid visitation, horrendous aberration
Invasion of a place once a sanctuary
Welcomed not by the mortal inhabitants

Putrid procession of foul intent
Kneel before the tide of pestilence
Their duties only to end this world

They come from a parallel world, a void of matter and life
These things created by our own twisted visions
The echoes of our nightmares

Unfettered by the limitations of earthly physics
And undirected by any intelligent purpose
Children tainted of infestation crafted with corruption
Loathsome creations of twisted parental love

Putrid procession of foul intent
Kneel before the tide of pestilence
Their duties only to end this world
End this world

They come from a parallel world, a void of matter and life
These things created by our own twisted visions
The echoes of our nightmares

Kneel before the tide of pestilence

9. In The Face Of Absolution

For a hundred centuries he has sat upon his throne
The lord of all mankind only answerable to the gods
This has gone on for far too long

The foes of the righteous will be condemned
Now is the time for us to overthrow this oppression
And we will stare in the face of absolution

Damned dictator
Conqueror of creation
The shells of once honourable men
Now follow his every whim
The streets are filled with manufactured disgraces
Manipulated into drones with no faces

The foes of the righteous will be condemned
Now is the time for us to overthrow this oppression
The foes of the righteous will be condemned
Now is the time for us to overthrow this oppression
And we will stare in the face of absolution

You will find little comfort or hope where it’s every man for himself
In the era of the eternal war you will not be missed

Now we have one thing to do upon this earth
With nothing to live for nothing to lose
We’ll purge the world clean of all enemies
And wash it clean with their blood

10. Elusion Of Mortality

You tell yourself that there’s nothing wrong and it will be OK
That it will all eventually go away
Yet from the moment you were born the end began

Leaves begin to fall in the realm of mortal men
Symbolic of their frail existance
Wither and fall, lost and forgotten
Content with nothing, forever searching

The dawn of a new age of supremacy
Beckons for humanity
Content with nothing, forever searching to escape
The illusion that is mortality

Eluded by the constriction
It holds no boundaries
Once you look past the fabric of reality
You’ll discover everything you ever wanted
So reach out and take it
You think this is the end, but my dear this is just the beginning
The beginning of the end

Face the fear and embrace enlightenment
Or forever remain eluded
