Track Name: Lazarus
ARISE, AWAKE, LAZARUS!

BLOOD IS BLOOD,
AND YOU ARE ONLY SLEEPING,
BLOOD IS BLOOD IS BLOOD.

ARISE, AWAKE, LAZARUS!

BLOOD IS BLOOD
AND YOU ARE ONLY SINKING.

THROW OFF THAT VEIL,
AND WALK AMONG THE LIVING.

ARISE, AWAKE, AND WALK AMONG THE LIVING,
ARISE, AWAKE, IN BLOOD.

ARISE, AWAKE, LAZARUS!
Track Name: G.A.T.U.
DEFINITIONS OF OUR SELF-INDULGENCE SPIRAL THROUGH THE MONUMENTS WE RAISE.

FACETS OF OUR EVOLUTION RUNNING THROUGH THE MAGIC IN OUR VEINS.

TRAPPINGS OF OUR MIND DECISIONS FALSIFY THE ALTAR AND THE STONE.

LAUGHTER OF THE OBELISK REFRACTING ALL THE THOUGHTS BEFORE OUR DEATH.

BUILD THAT WALL,
MAKE IT HIGHER THAN OUR MINDS,
FOR THE GLORY OF THE SKY,
RAISE THAT STONE,
RAISE IT HIGHER THAN OUR VOICE.

BLOOD AND BONE BECOME THE THRONE OF MORTALITY,
WEAKNESS AND FEAR THAT WE TRANSCEND,
WE'LL BREAK OUR BACKS AND PUSH THAT STONE,
SO WE ASCEND TO THE ZENITH.

BUILD THAT WALL,
MAKE IT HIGHER THAN OUR MINDS,
FOR THE GLORY OF THE SKY,
RAISE THAT STONE,
RAISE IT HIGHER THAN OUR VOICE.

WE FIND NAZARETH BURNING,
WE TRY MINDFUL AWAKENING,
WE CONJURE NUMBERS OF POWER,
RESOLVE FACES OF HORUS,
WE FIND LAZARUS BLEEDING.

BUILD THAT WALL,
MAKE IT HIGHER THAN OUR MINDS,
FOR THE GLORY OF THE SKY,
RAISE THAT STONE,
RAISE IT HIGHER THAN OUR VOICE.
Track Name: Templum Dirutum
WE BUILD WALLS
FOR ALL OUR FALLEN GLORIES,
BUILDING UP BONFIRES OF OUR DREAMS,
BUILT BY BRICK
THE FOUNDATIONS OF SLEEP,
BUILT SO HIGH JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.

RAISE THAT STONE,
BUT DO NOT ASK WHY
YOU HATE THAT STONE
SO MUCH THAT YOU NEGATE YOUR BONES
AND FLESH WERE CREATED IN HIS IMAGE RAISED
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.

LIFTING THE STONE TO BUILD THE PRISON THAT CONFINES YOU,
SPLITTING THE WOOD TO FIND THE EMPTINESS AROUND YOU,
GNASHING YOUR TEETH YOU WEEP THE WORDS YOU KNOW DEFINE TRUTH,
TEAR DOWN THE WALL THAT DIVIDES THE KINGDOM FROM MIND.

WE BUILD WALLS
FOR ALL OUR FALLEN GLORIES,
BUILDING UP BONFIRES OF OUR DREAMS,
BUILT BY BRICK
THE FOUNDATIONS OF SLEEP,
BUILT SO HIGH JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.

LIFTING THE STONE TO BUILD THE PRISON THAT CONFINES YOU,
SPLITTING THE WOOD TO FIND THE EMPTINESS AROUND YOU,
GNASHING YOUR TEETH YOU WEEP THE WORDS YOU KNOW DEFINE TRUTH,
TEAR DOWN THE WALL THAT DIVIDES THE KINGDOM FROM MIND.

WE BUILD THE TEMPLE WITH FLESH OF OUR FATHERS WHO STARVE US AND FORCE US TO BECOME THEIR MARTYRS, SO NOW WE TEAR THESE TEMPLES DOWN. WE BUILD THE TEMPLE WITH BONES OF OUR MOTHERS, WHO NURTURE US ONLY TO HIDE US FROM OTHERS, SO NOW WE TEAR THESE TEMPLES DOWN.

GNASHING YOUR TEETH YOU WEEP THE WORDS YOU KNOW DEFINE TRUTH,
TEAR DOWN THE WALL THAT DIVIDES THE KINGDOM FROM MIND.
Track Name: Unleash Leviathan
COMES THROUGH TIME WITH WORDS UNSPOKEN,
SHADOWED LIGHT THROUGH PRAYER AWOKEN,
THE TIME HAS COME, UNLEASH LEVIATHAN.

TIME AND SPACE IT DOES DEVOUR,
CRUSHING AEONS INTO HOURS,
THE TIME HAS COME, UNLEASH LEVIATHAN.

WORDLESS MOLOCH OF THE ANCIENTS,
A UNIVERSE OF INDIFFERENCE, HATRED,
THE TIME HAS COME, UNLEASH LEVIATHAN.

SHINING BEAST UNLEASH LEVIATHAN,
BOILING WRATH FEAR THE FLAMING TONGUE,
THROUGH UPWARD ABYSS BELOW, ABOVE,
SMOULDERING, THE EMBERS WE BECOME.
HARBINGER OF CHAOS WE SUCCUMB,
RAZING MONUMENTS THIS MUST BE DONE,
EXTINGUISHING THE GREED, VITRIOLIC SUN,
ELIMINATING PATHS THAT LEAD TO ONE.
SMOULDERING, THE EMBERS WE BECOME,
THROUGH UPWARD ABYSS BELOW, ABOVE,
BOILING WRATH, FEAR THE FLAMING TONGUE,
SHINING BEAST UNLEASH LEVIATHAN.

COMES THROUGH TIME WITH WORDS UNSPOKEN,
SHADOWED LIGHT THROUGH PRAYER AWOKEN,
THE TIME HAS COME, UNLEASH LEVIATHAN.
