Track Name: We Are One
Blood dries in the sand,
Thought we knew better than this.
Hard times are ahead,
Don't raise up your fist.
Now the time comes,
To repent for your sins.
Don't speak a single word,
The enemy's within.

Harsh noise, the uniforms,
Have caught you in their gaze.
Don't ask any questions,
Just obey and submit.

We stand together.
We are strong.
We are all.
We are one.

This is the future,
To protect the human race.
This is our future,
To slow down our pace.
Detach from your heart,
Salute serve and report.
Stand tall and keep your head down,
Kill on my command.

We stand together.
We are strong.
We are all.
We are one.

We are one.
Track Name: Endless War
You're soul was lost on that day
When you went so far, so far away,
To fight for freedom as you could see,
Hoping you'd come back to me.

In your dreams
The future's seen
But can you feel
What is real?
Endless war
that you whore.
Cut to see,
How much I bleed.

No life. No signs. No bodies found.
Forgotten under the ashen ground.
You have to grave. Stripped of your name,
All for someone else's game.

I don't know my name,
Lost so deep inside your game.
The blade so sharp,
I hear the angels harp.
All the things I wanted to say,
My skin so torn and frayed.
Track Name: The World You Dream
I walk the streets,
In the ashen snow.
With nowhere to go,
There's no one I know.

When I look,
Please look away.
I don't want to do,
the things I do.

To you...

Here, inside of me,
There is a man
Who wants to see
The world you dream.

When I lie here with you,
Oh my loving dear.
I want to be here,
Forever with you.

But I saw your dream
Stain my uniform.
So I had to do,
What I had to do

To you...

Here, inside of me,
There is a man
Who wants to see,
The world you dream.
Track Name: New World Order
We're here to fight,
To do what is right.
Using our might
We're giving the sight.
Spreading out her light
To brighten the night.
Raising up new heights.
Giving up our lives.
Track Name: Evoke
I used to fight for you,
Until I knew the truth.
She is by my side,
Drowning all I hide.
Erasing all the lines
And evoking in my mind.

Evoke

She rests deep inside,
Leading to the divine.
Drank so I could see.
Drank to fill the need.
Evokes the memories.
Remember the tragedies.

Evoke
Track Name: Forgotten
The ash covers the land
And buries all of the damned.
We fought so hard for so long,
But you never hear our song.

Forgotten,
We are,
Forgotten.

As you close your eyes,
Hidden behind your pride,
You walk alone in the fields,
In your gardens for your meals.

And as the sun sets in the sky,
The young stand tall all in a line,
To join us deep within the sands,
Giving their lives to the land.

Forgotten,
We are,
Forgotten.
Track Name: Condemned by Freedom
Opening up the bunker.
Witness the rape and plunder.
Wanted to be free.
Still, there is no peace.
A gun to your head.
Pray you'll end up dead.
Stripped and on your knees.
Innocence: the first casualty.

Anarchy: Another lie to believe,
Like a god that you can't see.
Now you are dead.
Found with a hole in your head.
Opening up the bunker.
Witness the rape and plunder.
Wanted to be free.
Still, there is no peace.

Now we live condemned by freedom,
Fought so hard to lose our reason.
Now we live condemned by freedom.
