Dormant Heart tracks

Lyrics


1. WHERE THE WOLVES COME TO DIE

Far from the reaches of the scythe
Bone turns to ash and reignites
An ember within a coffin of emptiness
Sinks into the ground

From the open mouth of the river
To the deep heart of winter
A severed cord from the heart to the head
Where men fear to tread

Hidden from the world for all to hide
Where the wolves come to die




2. VICTIMS AND PAWNS

Poisonous minds corrupt those within reach
Innocent souls molded by complete misery
I am alone watching it all unfold
An absence of faith yet I can't remove these shackles from my throat

They will creep into your thoughts
Deconstruct your moral code
They will bend and they will break
Every law to feed their cause
Bleeding you dry leaving nothing behind
So they can march to the dying heartbeat

Cowards and fiends align
Reshaped, transmogrified
Noose tied, bound hands and feet
Coveted eyes to ultimately deceive
I'm coming undone
Splitting at the seems
The blindfold so tight around your ears
It drowns out a thousand fucking screams

They will creep into your thoughts
Rip apart your values
Offering your sacrificial lamb
To appease your fellow man

How many times can you take the strain
Return to your feet, endure it all again
Blessed with the honesty of a thief, I'm waiting
How many times can you lie through your teeth
To be human is to sin and in death is honor for all men

Closed eyes see past the misguiding light
Take a breath to absorb the darkness in life

Pulling in two directions
Two minds yield into unto corruption

How many times can you take the strain
Return to your feet, endure it all again
Blessed with the honesty of a thief, I'm waiting
How many times can you lie through your teeth
To be human is to sin and in death is honor for no men




3. DORMANT HEART

Burst out of negation and discern
Enough to see your halo fall
To silence your words, to strangle your breath
To bring an end to it all
Hidden in the shadows
Dormant hearts now beating
Crept into the light
Tell the hangman the guilty have arrived

A kingdom so perfectly wretched
I hope their hands cling to your soul

The moon beheld the flames
Yet the scorched skies bore no change
The sound of the funeral bell now rings

Beyond the horizon
Hands of stone claw at the throat
Constricting life, binding hands
Ushering an eon
Omens cast out in place of wisdom
Open minds must choose a side
Tell the hangman I have arrived

A kingdom so perfectly wretched
I hope their hands cling to your soul

Awaken and remove the veil

The dust won't settle, so keep pushing on
Pray for your soul to keep
For in hell you'll have no prayers to reap

By breaking the silence we give in to them, to them
Like lambs to the slaughter unaware
Walking into the eye of the storm

And when the world's asleep
Point the finger at me
Unleash the dogs and set them astray to ensure your safety
But for now we have won
But at what cost... But at what cost...
We are lost... We are lost...




4. TO BUILD A BOMB

Watch as the banks break
Flooding the land into the earth's heart
Fear creeps in
The stones are set with blood and lust

And the shadows bring what your despise
They move like snakes entwining ulcers within

War of words
Spoken in handshakes, behind locked doors
Tongues that twist and bend
Dragging us all to our end

And the skies turn black and the poison seeds don't grow
With riches they line, their pockets yet unpick the seams again

Brick by brick, you're closing yourself in
To build upon blood and sand is to build a tomb

The candles burn
The snake has spoken
Watch as they rise through the cracks
Eyes widen as the iris turns black

Face the beckoning
The winds of change are a myth
The meek shall inherit the earth
When their bodies are set adrift

Sever the roots that run deep and feed
Crown of thorns for your majesty
Failed mortal, thwarted King

To build on blood and sand is to build a tomb




5. OVERTHROWN

Remove your crown
Self appointed king
Master of deceit
Dragged bodies through the streets

Stones to throw
Heavy cross to bear
Face behind a mask
Facing a silent collapse

Oh preacher, tell your flock they don't stand tall
The higher the structure you build, the further it falls...

Concealed poison on lips of lovers
They'll bring us to our knees
Shake the earth eternally
Condemn the broken
Accept the weak
Now whose turn is it to turn the other cheek

Oh preacher, tell your flock they don't stand tall
The higher the structure you build, the further it falls...

If ever you need light
Step into the dark and look behind

Oh preacher, tell your flock they shall not fall
Turn away, hide your face
Hide your face so they can‘t see past your lying eyes

Oh preacher, tell your flock they don't stand tall
The higher the structure you build, the further it falls...




6. LEECH

Acid slaver burns through bone
Dissected and reanimated
Lips are sewn, stitched to mute the outcome
Block the exit wounds

See through the face of degradation
Beyond what hides on the surface
Numb the ache, dull the light and sound
It’s dragging me down

This isn't war for this is silent
Your pointed teeth left leeches marks in me
And I can feel it burning
Forever under my skin

Dissected into a thousand pieces
Corroding from the inside
Piercing the flesh and burrowed deep
A host forever asleep

So see through the face of degradation
Beyond what hides on the surface
Numb the ache, dull the light and sound
It’s dragging me down

This isn't war for this is silent
Your pointed teeth left leeches marks in me
And I can feel it burning
Forever under my skin

The remnants of your soul depart

The cold frost of winter soothes the sting
Forever the leech is king




7. SERVITUDE

Chains break yet the line pushes onwards
Dust in the cogs has no effect or purpose
What little remorse we have suffers, depletes
To weak to know who you are

Resounding cries
And I fear this wretch is whole

Day breaks yet the sun's dissipated
Iron manacles rattle the cages
Debt paid in full to the lords
The fiends, the foes, the dogs, they know who you are

Resounding cries
And I fear this wretch is whole

Inhaling its own tail, the cycle repeats

They want to see people burn
And watch their faces turn
Inflicting their pain upon
Everyone that breathes under the sun

Days blur into one
When the curtain drops to obscure
The end to the hell that's begun




8. INDOCTRINATED

Faint shadows emerge
Restricting and contorting
Controlling from behind
The veil of the usurper (the usurper)
Praying for the weak
Preying on the innocent
Prophets and idols replacing men
Isolate the infection before it spreads

Born on our own
Severing the ancestry
Die on our own
Defeat the bloodline

Born without direction
Born without prejudice
Pulled into line forever enslaved
Corrupted, mistrusted
Erect the gallows
Upon the pentagram
And let the bastards hang
And tradition can die with them

Born on our own
Severing the ancestry
Die on our own
Defeat the bloodline

Let the bastards hang
And tradition can die with them

Outstretch your palms
To receive your communion of lies
Fall to your knees and repent

Your failure we claim as ours
Ruler in the sky
Strike down with arrows unbound
You've made your altar so bow down

So bow down...

Stains of dissolution
The blind follow the mislead
To gallows then graves
In sickness and death

Augment this world of lies
Everything is a choice and not a birthright




9. HARM

Endure the paths unaligned
Idle hands create idols and shrines
The devil makes use of those who squander their time

Keep your enemies close
Surrounded by sinners and ghosts
Eyes to the ground
Whispers arise from the heart of the hive

The heart of darkness
Bleeds only for one and for one it serves
It burns black coal
Through veins, the flesh, the bone

By raising your voice
You will invite death
Stay close to the swarm
And you will come to no harm
By raising your voice
You will give us away
Stay close to the swarm
And you will come to no harm

Forgotten yet ostracized
Moving beneath the darkest of skies
Riding the mist concealed
Hidden in plain sight

Keep your enemies close
Surrounded by sinners and ghosts
Eyes to the ground
Whispers arise from the heart of the hive

The heart of darkness
Bleeds only for one and for one it serves
It burns black coal
Through veins, the flesh, the bone

By raising your voice
You will invite death
Stay close to the swarm
And you will come to no harm
By raising your voice
You will give us away
Stay close to the swarm
And you will come to no harm

Deafened by the sirens and wounded souls

Bound down! They hear the voices
They will drown out all remnants of us
Bound down! They hear the voices
They will drown out, forever servants

How can you feel safe out here...

By raising your voice
You will invite death
Stay close to the swarm
And you will come to no harm
By raising your voice
You will give us away
Stay close to the swarm
And you will come to no harm




10. MERCY

Fall from the darkness and swallow a choking breath
Winds howl and scream and tear the scorched earth
Scatter the ashes, lower the casket
Forever in turmoil, buried beneath the broken soil

Cast me into desolation, I'll find my path again
Torn into pieces yet each step guides me back
The fires are built and promise a change that will be repaid
There was no mercy for you or I, so the earth will be set ablaze

Blood for blood, surrender or don't
But forgiveness is a lie to behold

Submission, relinquish all your fears and give in
The pain floods in as you inhale
Submission, relinquish all your hurt
And begin to denounce this cruel world

When the sound of the burning fires awake you stir and come to
Smoke fills the sky and clouds and coves the frozen moon
Sever the growing distance between us and guide me to align
Worlds apart yet I fell the pulse like a severed vein

Blood for blood, surrender or don't
But forgiveness is a myth to behold

Submission, relinquish all your fears and give in
The pain floods in as you inhale
Submission, relinquish all your hurt
And begin to denounce this cruel world

No atonement or sins to be absolved
There is no redemption within this life




11. CALLOUS SOULS

Taste the blood and spit out the clots
Lick your lips as the world begins to rot
And it's a fading world that I want no input or part of
Our own reflections are sickening sights
There's no escaping what we always try to hide
I am fortune's fool, the bitter fruit from the devil's table

I carry the weight of it all
And I'll drown with it

Crown of bones
Indistinguishable
Now succumb
Lest the reaper comes

Fear is a prison that floods with doubt
As the waters rise accept there will be no doubt
But we all drown in our coffins, anchors down
Inhale mistakes and breathe out the shame
Close your eyes as the blood begins to drain
I am fortune's fool, the bitter fruit from the devil's table

Thirst the seclusion
I feel the silence like a warmth
Entombed I'll lay with thorns on my grave

Face to the hardened stone
Lie still lest the reaper comes
Face to the hardened stone
Pluck out the decay from the tree to remove its disease

I am an open book
Yet the pages are blank
Held at arms length
This is as close as you'll ever get
I am an open book
Yet the pages are blank
Try as you might to evoke
You will never know




12. QUIESCENT

I walk out blindly on the frozen sea
Where the light has failed
Clutch to beams that sting to touch
Where the lies took you

Maybe moths need a path
Maybe the flames are all they have

Failed to rescue damaged wings
It's the same old sin to repeat
Failed to rescue I can see
That a line is drawn at our feet

Burrowed beneath
Fill our dark hole, making leaves
Clutch the roots, and sleep
Crawl into the earth
To the land where the light has failed

Maybe moths need a path
Maybe the flames are all they have
Don't want to see you belie

Failed to rescue damaged wings
It's the same old sin to repeat
Failed to rescue I can see
That a line is drawn at our feet

Is this how you repay me?
You kept me whole then silenced my thoughts
How can I repay you?
A canopy of horror drowned in this sorrow

And if you cross my mind again, I'll curse you out
Enveloping you, a swarm and you die alone

14. ZERO (SMASHING PUMPKINS COVER)

My reflection, dirty mirror
There's no connection to myself
I'm your lover, I'm your zero
I'm the face in your dreams of glass

So save your prayers
For when we're really gonna need 'em
Throw out your cares and fly
Wanna go for a ride?

She's the one for me
She's all I really need
Oh yeah, she's the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness and loneliness is cleanliness
And cleanliness is godliness and god is empty just like me

Intoxicated with the madness
I'm in love with my sadness
Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms
The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth

I never let on that I was on a sinking ship
I never let on that I was down

You blame yourself for what you can't ignore
You blame yourself for wanting more

She's the one for me
She's all I really need
She's the one for me
She's my one and only
