Track Name: Rift - Abomination of Desolation
Prophecies of heaven and hell, sacred or profane? Thrice told in holy word, the meaning is arcane. Beaten by the heathen army, blind lead the blind. Slip from light into the dark, day of vengeance falls.
Heaven's black with sin, fear lies within.
The fall of man has begun. Were we all cursed when Judas lied?
We live deceived and so deceived we die
Abomination of Desolation. Abomination of Desolation
Throughout the centuries, persecution of souls. Angels high on gilded wings, devil in his hole. Blackened heretics shall march, evangelists proclaim. Prophets worshipped, sinners saved, all in his name.
His time is nearing, the lawless man revealed.
Doomed to destruction, our fate now is sealed.
Above the shining halos, below the deadly hordes, saints and sinners marching on, final war begins. Lost souls a prize to win, for this they'll fight and which ever one succeeds will be crowned King of Kings.
Track Name: Diminish
Set the traps, none shall pass this way, poisoned bait and ligature.
Hack away the face from sentient beasts, carved image of ignorance.
Stab the beast, haul in Leviathan, the oil rush it never ends.
Smoke em out, burn their homes for fuel. Mountain kings days are few.

Hacking, Burning, Slashing
There is a cancer eating us and it's bloody name is Greed. Diminish
To see what the future holds for us, look to the past. Diminish.

Chop wood, strip the land of worth, epidemic of mahogony lust.
Liquid death, drink from the poisoned well, Black gold gives us earth in hell.
Oceans rise, polluted and acidified. Climate changes by degrees.
Spray death, pesticide, herbicide, no regard for nature or humanity.

Chopping, Drilling,Drowning

There is a cancer eating us and it's bloody name is Greed. Diminish.
To see what the future holds for us, look to the past. Diminish.

Holy wars, ethnic genocide, conflict and persecution.
Arms race, cold war re-enacted. Defence companies lick their lips.
Corporate greed, corruption and deceit, undermining the rule of law.
Forced march, indigenous culture dies, crushing disempowerment.

Intolerance, Injustice, Devouring.

There is a cancer eating us and it's bloody name is Greed. Diminish.
To see what the future holds for us, look to the past. Diminish
Track Name: Ghosts From the Ruins
You danced your way home from across the seas
Dynastic power waits for you to seize
You were the lion in a one horse race
Legislate against the different faiths
Power games, political maneuvering
Strategic placement of your fellow men
Gave you a powerbase for gross abuse
In elections you could never lose

We lie as ghosts in the ruins
You created ghosts in the ruins
We,ll rise as ghosts from the ruins

Then came spring and the stink of revolt
Retribution like a lightening bolt
You promised movement towards reform
You brought suffering in many forms
You taught the people hate and to fear the skies
Your denials bound up with bloody lies
You fed the bear and it bit your hand
The beast of war stalks across your land

We lie as ghosts in the ruins
You created ghosts in the ruins
We,ll rise as ghosts from the ruins

Aggressive acts seek to denigrate
An invitation to the Caliphate
Mass movement of the population
Your solution is subjugation
Seige tactics, hunger and disease
Heavy shelling of rebel held cities
Sarin gas, barrel bombs from the skies
The people pay the price with their limbs and lives

Endless war with no conclusion
Torture rape and executions
International condemnation
Where is your villification

We,ll rise as ghosts from the ruins
Track Name: Flames of Hate
My heart's a barren place, emotion starved of light
The spark of love ignites, only to be snuffed out
So life was given form, brought forth into this world
Denied my tenderness, raised by your mother's hand

Anger killed remorse, revenge took mercy's breath
Love,s chained to hate and is a slave till death
You were the fate I could not face

I am the wind that blows flames of hate
Thirsting for love only truth can sate
You are the life that thrives 'spite of me
Thirsting for love only truth can sate

Screaming at the world, you did not ask for this
Burning to feel alive, your anger manifest
Reaching out to me with youthful eagerness
Side by side we sat, river of life flowed past

Anger killed remorse, revenge took mercy's breath
Love,s chained to hate and is a slave till death
You were the fate I could not face


I am the wind that blows flames of hate
Thirsting for love only truth can sate
You are the life that thrives 'spite of me
Thirsting for love only truth can sate

Now time has slipped away, the years have passed us by
I wonder how you are, what might have been
Had I been stronger then and held you in my arms
My guilt's a cross to bear and I,ve dragged it far

Anger killed remorse, revenge took mercy's breath
Love,s chained to hate and is a slave till death
You were the fate I could not face


I am the wind that blows flames of hate
Thirsting for love only truth can sate
You are the life that thrives 'spite of me
Thirsting for love only truth can sate
Track Name: Free Speech Talking
I,m talking, you,re listening, heed my words with blind devotion
I,m walking, you follow, footsteps echo in your mind
I,m saying, you,re doing, as I say not as I do
I,m awakened, you,re dreaming a nightmare in reality

I,ll rise up inside you, I,ll rise up and incite you
Free, Speech, Talking, Free, Speech, Talking

I,m rising, you,re falling, silent voice of opposition
I,m floating, you,re drowning, suffocate your will to live
Unite you, divide you, lead you to insanity
Warmaker, peacemaker, battle rages deep within

We,ll rise up inside you. We,ll rise up and incite you
Free, Speech, Talking, Free, Speech, Talking

I hear you but don,t fear you, strangers living in my mind
If you believe in a God unseen why are these voices given no creedance
Acceptance of circumstance, a return to equilibrium
A dialogue of confusion, I now know who you think you are

You,ll rise up no longer, I,ll be the one who,s stronger
Free, Speech, Talking, Free, Speech, Talking
Track Name: The Day the Sky Exploded
Doomsday rock, the ultimate force
Sent by God on collision course
A fire in the sky, evil intent
Planet earth, the final destination

Are we defenceless, will we survive, brace for detonation
Where is our saviour, Bruce Almighty, this is the omen

Killer meteor, bringer of doom, the day the sky exploded
Nuclear winter, lucifer's hammer, from beyond the stars comes death
Killer meteor, bringer of doom, the day the sky exploded
Nuclear winter, lucifer's hammer, from beyond the stars comes death
Blade in his hand for our souls

Global destruction, stricken planet
Shockwave of terror tears off your skin
Science fiction or science fact
Oceans boil, the planet turns black
Rock and ice blasts it's way through space, a vast emptiness
No escape plans, contingencies, we,ll all die as one

Killer meteor, bringer of doom, the day the sky exploded
Nuclear winter, lucifer's hammer, from beyond the stars comes death
Killer meteor, bringer of doom, the day the sky exploded
Nuclear winter, lucifer's hammer, from beyond the stars comes death
Blade in hand for our souls

Post impact chaos reigns
Battle ensues for what little remains
Withering life crumbles and fails
Lost souls are given to cannibalisation

Last man standing, bloodied and crazed, he,s unbelieving
Ocean of darkness drowning all life, it,s unforgiving
Killer meteor, bringer of doom, the day the sky exploded
Nuclear winter, lucifer's hammer, from beyond the stars comes death
Killer meteor, bringer of doom, the day the sky exploded
Nuclear winter, lucifer's hammer, from beyond the stars comes death
Blade in hand for our souls
Track Name: The Seer
Transcendant quest from a bed of leaves
Sun slips away and I,m filled with unease
Headful of magic, dancing shadows at my feet
Last rays of light, ritual is complete
Enlightenment sought in this pagan place
With my demons I,ll come face to face
Fingers of stone reaching up for the stars
Caught in their grasp, it,s gone too far

Swept along on waves of fear
Her creatures whisper in my ear
Fleeting visions in my mind
The ancient lore I long to find
From nature's bounty spirit,s fed
Morning dew annoints my head
From the west her voice it sings
From the east her light it springs

I see you, I see you

On ravens' wings I,ll fly tonight
Drenched in moonlight, I,ve never been this free
Follow a path tumbling far below
A foaming fury that rages on and on
Returning to a place of youthful dreams
Lost horizons will appear once again
Loose the shackles, cut the ties, free your mind
Free your spirit, a test for all mankind

From the skies come drops of rain
Fall to earth as warriors slain
Their broken bodies coalesce
To wend and wind their way no less
Across the land in mighty splendour
A snaking path of no surrender
Nothing halts her flowing course
I,ve come to worship at her force

I see you, I see you

Power and beauty wreathed in mystery
Invoking wonder at her earthly majesty
Revealed our senses, open minds will see
One world, one people, deserving to be free
Reject their doctrine, it,s only fear they give
Fear not the end, life,s your,s to live
This one reality we,ll only truly know
Right here, right now in nature,s glow

And so she lives within the land
A church not made by human hand
A love devine, without condition
That men of words would have imprisoned
And if our mother we destroy
What other means could we employ?
A fruitless journey through the stars
We can,t escape ourselves on Mars

I see you, I see you, I see you, I see you
