Track Name: Preserved in Ash
Awakened by claps of celestial hands
The mountain, once guardian
Now soars in the wind

Explosion, a call from our Father’s sphere
Unending, surrounding
Reprisal for sins that we prayed would disappear

Cloud bereft of rain

Oblivious to the many signs
A pervasive haze
Always above, as we slept through our lives
The promise of the end of days

By the fire sky we make our way
through burning wind
Bracing ourselves for the impending sight
of our frozen kin

Head to the sea!
On this volatile path
Follow the sun!
Through the cracks in the ash
Carry the weak!
Demonstration of grace
Salvage our souls!
From the tendrils of fate

All for naught
The heavens aflame
Thy will is done
By hubris we fall under sheets of violent rain

Preserved in ash, we lay immortal

Circular passage of time
Augury bestowed upon the blind
Monument to avarice, memorial in stone
Witness to the callowness, alone
Track Name: The Devourer
Embalmed, he wakens from his sleep
In the corner of his eye something retreats
Heavy hearted as a feather hits the floor
A betrayal to be punished evermore

Isolated
Passing beyond the living
Toiling through underworlds
Asphyxiating
There was a toll indebted
Through trickery he fled
The scales tilted by bloodshed

In from the cold of night it calls
From dark spires of mold it falls
He begs to the sky to retract this
Servant of the life leaching blackness

Shadows uncast upon the wall
Attach to human form
Satiating The Devourer

Silhouetted figure creeps
Smoke of obsidian she breathes
Trepidation gives his scent away
The stench of avarice betrays her prey
Coercion bestows a garment of distress
Subjugated

Lying paralyzed
As she makes her descent from the ceiling
Glowing eyes piercing
Stripping the plan from his instinct to flee
Cling to failed hope

Judgment waits for him
She’s watching

Destined
Recompense
Imminent
Air turns dark and heavy
Siphons strategy
As she comes

Breathe in thick tar
Suffer
Vacate your rot to fate

Visible pulse in the throat
As jaws fly wide
Ethereal strangling grip
Paralysis
Now in a world without time
Restless, primal will
Won’t keep her hunger at bay
The insidious curse will consume

Every night in the realm of Duat
The scales are leveled in the Halls of Ma’at
No time to commiserate
Eternity paid for treachery
