Track Name: Beginning
Harsh the cold of winter
Seeping through the veins
Blowing dust into an open (mind)
And I
And I
Am waiting

Bleeding like animals
Hanging from the reins
Taste of smoke, the way is blind
And I
And I
Am waiting

I see it in the clouds of dust
And written on the cage
I see it in the gravel on the ground
I see it in the dripping rust
And in the burning rage
I see it in the space between the sounds
Oh, I see it now
And I
Awaken

Scrawled across the world
In letters bright and wide
Carving deep into the life
And we
And we
Awaken

Open like a flower
Bursting life inside
Storming through the hurt and strife
And we
And we
Awaken

Bright the dawn of the waking life
Bright the life of the waking mind
Bright the mind of the waking love
Bright the love under will
Track Name: Death Comes
Death comes like a mother in the morning
Warmth, to wash away the lies
Oh, it comes like sunlight in the morning
Falling glory into waiting eyes

Death comes like a lover in the evening
How they beckon, how they shine
Oh, it comes like moonlight in the evening
Cold and fleeting hands in mine

Oh, the grinding stones, the burden,
falling from my open hands
All the longing, all the searching
Oh, I fall beneath the sands

Death comes like a friend in night time
When all the world has left it's mark
Oh, it comes like starlight in the night time
Calming voices in the dark

Oh, the grinding stones, the burden,
Falling from my open hands
All the longing, all the searching
Oh, I fall beneath the sands

Oh, a life is ever yearning
I am falling in your hands
Oh, the heart is ever burning
Oh, we fall beneath the sands
Fall beneath the sands
Track Name: Red Man
I lift my hands
I lift my hands above my head
I lift my hands above my head I look upon the face burning
Eyes burning blood burning I look upon the face
I look upon the face
I look upon the face
I grip the black horns and I look upon the face
Eyes blacker than space and I lift my hands burning
Heart burning blood splitting scream and I look upon the face
I look upon the face
I look upon the face

*Oh, the warm skin, my heart
My dead tongue awakens
I let my hands rise
As I leave my dead world

My hand, clenched in the light
The sharp claws, the warm life
Slowly, this heart of mine
Goes up in flames*

I bite the tongue that speaks in me
I bite the tongue that speaks in me
I bite the tongue that speaks in me and spit it out dead skin dead flesh
Empty threats empty hands empty promises and I am possessed
I boil in the black blood of the blessed and I am the god of horns
I bring the fire
I bring the fire burning desire
I am the breaker of the words I am the god of liars

I am the black churning waters of the dreaming reptile mind
I am the spark of life and blood and hope and rage and pain inside
I am the calling, unholy lust, I will not be satisfied
I am the red man
I am the red man
I am the red man and I am coming

*Oh, and how the blood is boiling
Streaming in the veins
How it lights up
My eyes

And the will
Is burning, cold like ice
I am falling upwards
Above the sky*
Track Name: O, Child
O, child, born of my blood
Joy of my trembling hands
My forgotten voice in the dark
The warmth in my eyes
You, who light my dying flame
My light under heavy skies

O, child, born of my blood
You, who fell from me
I seek you far over the world
Far beyond the mountains and the valleys
I seek you in the hidden corners of the heart
I seek you in the stars

O, child, born of my blood
Joy of my trembling hands
I seek you under the skies
Always, I seek you
Grasping hands ever empty
Breath heavy with smoke
I seek you in the depths of my heart
I seek you in the stars
Track Name: End
Bring me home
Bring me home
Bring me home again

Bring me home
Oh, bring me home
Let all stop pretending

And I go
And I go
Leaving everything

Break my walls
Break my walls
Break my walls again

Stripped of all
Stripped of all
Empty in the ending

And I call
Reach for the divide
See it all
Turn around and fall across the sky

Come down,
It comes apart and we are falling
Soaring
between the stars, forever falling
As the world is undone

We stand tall
We stand tall
Tall between the burning trees and

Let them fall
Let them fall
Leave them to their agony

And all
Is crumbling in our hands
And we are all
We are all that's left

Come down,
We fall apart and we are soaring
Everything
Unravels as we seek the morning
Seeking,
We seek it far beyond the falling clouds
Rending,
We rend the veil, we cast aside the shroud
And we are undone

And all
Falls away, goes down to rest
We stand tall
We are all that's left
