Track Name: Mountaincarver
I cast their vessels aside
Deep in the brine they dwell
From rifted storm they fell

There is an abhorrent force
Waiting to rise
I dream of its wake
Oh how I long for the deep

Ushering sailors into the depths of the storm
Her lantern glows with the light of a dying flame
Raising the waters of the ship’s torn masts
A grave, cold,
epitaph

From under the deep we will rise with the tide
Robbing the light from those who cast us aside
We are the rising storm that will come to be dreadfully, and endlessly
Beloved

Show me to the one who bares the flame
Share with me the right to be born again
For there is nothing left at all, but this life of torment
Show me to the one who bares the flame
Share with me the right to be born again

I do not ask you to pave the road
Or relinquish your light
I only wish to be free of mind

Mountain!
Carver!
Raise your endless waves
And beckon your grievous winds once more
Mountain!
Carver!
Wrath of the siren’s song doth blare
Beneath the waters you will fare

Through the emanating pulse of the sea
You will be broken, bound,
And forced to drown with me
The seers are stirring;
Waters staring back at me
I see the rise of a new antiquity

From under the deep we will rise with the tide
Robbing the light from those who cast us aside
We are the rising storm that will come to be dreadfully,
And endlessly
Beloved

Show me to the one who bares the flame
Share with me the right to be born again
For there is nothing left at all, but this life of torment
Show me to the one who bares the flame
Share with me the right to be born again

I do not ask you to pave the road
Or relinquish your light
I only wish to be free of mind

Mountain!
Carver!
Raise your endless waves
And beckon your grievous winds once more
Mountain!
Carver!
Wrath of the siren’s song doth blare
Beneath the waters you will fare

Relinquish me from this life
I will not ask to pay the price;
free fall through my own damn misery
Through blood and bone
And fate unknown
I'm forever caught in this divide
Yet i carry on through all time
And through the endless tides
Track Name: Stormblood
Voices Call my name from inside the pictures frame
Decay swinging at me from all fuckin' sides
I swear to god that this will be the only time
That I traverse between the world of living and the dead
From my head

Feed em to the wolves
There nothing but fools
That drag me down beneath the echoes of the war
From the ground they will cower as they did before

You can follow this trail
But it is not an easy burden to bare
If this defeats you
Then you should prepare

Lord knows i was born to be a stormblood
Cold veins and a beating heart
Always burning always stirring up another fuckin' way
To pursue the fires that light the way

I really need another healing sign
Another way to pursue my sacrifice
And recant, from the clutches of the living dead
The peace i seek is but a sorrowful song
For everything and everyone that has done me wrong
Will stick with me til’ the day I move on

Lord knows i was born to be a stormblood
Cold veins and a beating heart
Always burning always stirring up another fuckin' way
To pursue the fires that light the way

Sinking far away,
Im sinking far away
From the mire and the madness
And the restrictions that entrance us
The stormblood holds fast the cause
To bring forth his only light;
From the fires that light the way
There can be only one cause of this affinity
Towards the bleakness we behold
After we take our lives and let go

I really need another healing sign
Another way to pursue my sacrifice
And recant, from the clutches of the living dead
The peace i seek is but a sorrowful song
For everything and everyone that has done me wrong
Will stick with me til’ the day I move on…
Track Name: The Discordant Ascent of a Drowned God (Ft. Layne Richardson)
The freezing cold of nocturnal torture
Releases a cold ray of light
Between the rift of ocean and sky
I hear them cry

Left behind To suffer through
the weathering brine
Raised low
Crimson to water / they will be left behind
As I witness the cries
Of ancient beings as they descend into the sky

Death for all but he
The death god of ocean and sea
Who are we to question, true wrath
Those who ne’er grazed time
And witness but fragments of all life

Witness godless tyrants
Cowering in their swarth ripped from earthly call
Shattering fragments of cosmos and time relentlessly befall
A formless oedon reconverging massless death and light
Between the rift of space and time
The blackstar, he enshrined
Track Name: Sign of Slaughter (Ft. James Benson)
Forces of bleakness
They scatter amongst
The waves and the bow of this craft

The rattling the gnawing
The scraping of bones
Against the island of jagged stone

Bloodied and broken
And wounded I leap
From ship wreckage to cursed shore

Stammering along the sharp rocks
Towards this cold end
my souls forever tormented, broken and bent.


On this outcrop I wait
I wait, I wait
For my end; my torturous fate

Ravaged; imbued with all sin
Hallowed and begging for swifter death
In a shroud of night as dense as the seas
The force begins to drag me to the deep

A coldblooded symphony
Crowns the night of fading lights
And through the silent waters of the flood
They slaughtered me in cold blood

Under grey skies the bodies lay
And i watch
As the madness consumes me

Suffering the full brunt
Of the weight of the world
The waters searching to drown
Life is a ship, destined to be cast down

Im stranded and waiting to die
On a cold outcrop far away from all eyes
I feel like i'm drowning in water
For this is the sign of my slaughter
Track Name: Bleak Ululations
Begotten wounds
Reappearing upon my broken body
As I float up, exhumed
From my tomb
The blood-drenched wheel of time
Now spinning back into my wretched mind

Through an onslaught of treacherous blood-let
The ever growing pile of rotten cadavers pulsing simultaneously
As i writhe
And ask where the fuck am i
I see the light

Light the pyres that guide the way to total victory
good has ever come from a bloodless chapter of history
I raised up the harm again
Pushing those forward those yet to wake, from the bleak and dark
We burn march and raid
Those who wish us harm again
To bare the poison

Blood will dance in the water like paint
As I liberate all the “martyrs” and “saints”
And though i may be drowned tonight
I yet keep my soul
Unlike you

With a lifeless look and a heart of stone
I will reap these lands and sit atop a bloodied throne
And wait for their attempt to drag me to a cold
Long forgotten tomb

Blood will dance in the water like paint
As i liberate all the “martyrs” and “saints”
And though i may be drowned tonight
I yet keep my soul
Unlike you

I conjure thunder from the dead
And pierce the cold and bleak divine
Wrenched out from the waters below that consume and guide me home
Though i may yet keep my hope
There is little chance I will do anything but float


Bleak Ululations
Bleak Uluations…
Track Name: Dreaming of the Deep
Suffering through the madness of an inglorious unfateful wake
Untethering myself from a forgotten and relentless fate
To sink and drown
With no hope to be found
I, I will rise
With my voice scattering into the winds of time

Long forgotten
In silence
I wait

The bleakness of this path i chose,
brings drowning thoughts to mind
Although i live and breathe among the earth
I feel a yearning for something left behind

There is a comfort to be found
When we fall into the sea
Among the wreckage and the brine
A different comfort comes to claim me

And in this lonesome, solemn rain
i plunge... to escape my pain

They saw
They saw the light
Deep within the hallowed and glowing brine
a darkness nay but a way of life
within a tomb locked away from the hands of time

Lay down your rusting dreams of old
And raise your hands in prayer
For the surface to behold
Track Name: Diluvian Embrace
I know you not by name
and ne’er see you furtive form
Yet feel your presence among this abode of man
For in this place of many…

I see so few with raging hearts that beat like those of the gods
We are few and far between
(many trials we have seen)
Forward pressed forevermore
I am passion, I am fire , and I am death to my core

Deconstruction comes in small doses
For those who wait for fate
Fear not.
For that is the road we all must take

If were to ascend; and reach the sky as
burning beacons for all those
lost to the tide
wonder why; it is you felt the need to climb
That ,mountain all others avoided like plague
To keep their breath and relinquish passion
As if it were only a small price to pay


As if it were only a small price to pay

Take me with you
I see the light you made
Take me with you
I am caught between the waves
lift me from this place
For i have not seen daylight
Since the day I turned away From you

Though others will come and try to take me from this place
I will burn, break, and throw them to their diluvian embrace


From sky crowned to water
This sign of slaughter
Has robbed me from the burning light
And brought me low to the confinements of this deep and dreary hold...
