Track Name: It's a Trap!
Come along, stop resisting your fate
It's just not done - and there is no escape
Some have resisted, worthy of song
Not me (not me) I was never that strong
When we're through, you'll be better by far
For just a moment, you'll be one with the sssssssstars
Mutilation! And mutation!
If this is right, then I want to be wrong

When your black empire has failed
And the resistance has prevailed
Now there's nothing left to say (nothing left to say)
If after all we're just mistakes
Then stitch & sew & recreate
Til there's nothing left to say

Beneath the static, below the waves
My spark still flickers, still resonates
Take me apart, piece by piece
I am depleted, so you may increase
What a waste of my youth, oh, what! A! Shame!
Tell me, tell me now, tell me - who do I blame?
I faced my foe at the breaking of dawn
(My God) It was me, it was me all along

When your black empire has failed
And the resistance has prevailed
Now there's nothing left to say (nothing left to say)
If after all we're just mistakes
Then stitch & sew & recreate
Til there's nothing left to say

When the tower walls are scaled
Adversaries all impaled
(At last) there's nothing left to say
Track Name: Firebombing of Lakeland
Come, O cleansing fire of promise
Scorch the meat from off our bones
Fill your coffers from our coffins
From our fossils form your throne
(Your so-called truth
Will be reviled)

We've had enough of all your alibis
Syncopated, orchestrated
Swarming with flies
We need some light to break these smoldering skies
Incinerate the fear
And cut you down to size

Masses, thirsty, desperate, tired
Of suckling upon your glistening teat
Out of the slag our skeletons will rise
We'll gather beneath your tower of flesh
No longer content to be fat with deceit
(Or sour bile)
Track Name: In Blackest Night (The Hunter)
(In blackest night we rise)

Is this all who are coming?
Is this all who have stayed?
Now is the time, when we draw the line
Though it may prove our grave
Yet we're still standing to fight for what's right
Yet we still ride out with banners held high
With torches, ignited, our light fills the night
And still we rise up, persist, and survive

You want us dead
At any cost
At any expense
There is a price on our heads
Are we so dangerous?
That you must murder us?
All for the sake of your arrogant avarice

Come the dogs
Come the raids
Come the hidebound
To kill the brave
For this eloquent hope, these crystalline dreams
The sound of a future as yet unseen
We fight not alone, on each other we'll lean
Resist the power! Destroy the machine!
Track Name: Adrift in the Interlude
It's timeless
This frozen arrangement
Fragile heart strings
Play in the twilight
And I put it away
Before you can glimpse
...The hole that I found in there

Alone in my arms tonight
She sings
Catch myself falling
Before it gets too bright
And she gathers me up
With precision & grace
...Until I can feel the beat of her heart

When will I come down & see myself lying next to you?
When will I come down & see you holding on to what is true?
When will I come down to see myself holding onto you?
When will I come down to see you with me?
Track Name: The Rowan Child
She is your sister
Your daughter, your love
She sings of sorrow
She dreams to be free of
Fierce wind cuts through her
It chills to the bone
Threatens to consume her
But she is not alone

Here stands a soldier
Here stands a child
A stand so courageous she makes
Hell in the distance
Ever drawing near
On the word of her captain she waits

Her gown of barbed wire
Her crown of horns
Her silence, now broken
Enrobes her, it keeps her warm
The years of trial
She holds her ground
Bend back the bowstring
Wait for the sound

An angel, she's waiting
A life so worth saving
