Track Name: Fever Dream
Fever Dream:

I am the great resonance
A boundless frequency
I am the Overmind
Remove those shackles that bind you
Then you will see

Transcend this illusion
Or are we all just doomed to dream forever?
Contest your delusions
You’ll find yourself in revolution

Drink deep of my shadow
Bring forth all my demons
Hold fast, this stark reality
Unveil the pageantry of time
Behold the all-consuming light
Follow me into the hive minds in fever dream

I am the great resonance
A boundless frequency
I am the Overmind
Remove those shackles that bind you
Then you will see

Close your eyes
Look inside
Kill your ego mind
Take your time

Wake up
Track Name: The Scavenger
The Scavenger:

I see the shadow beyond the flame
I hear them calling out, now
They sing my secret name

I am your Abbot of unreason,
Your lord of misrule
And I wish to welcome you
To the feast for fools

Run adry now
I slake my thirst on thee
She's in her cups and aching
Scrying fortunes in the tea
Stand closer into the darkness
So I can feel you,
And taste your scent again

Come down,
Ye lotus-eaters
Drink deeply of the tea
Now look me dead in the eyes to see
That you can't run away from me

These voices of madness unbound
Dementia I know thy name
I've got a place for you
Right by my side where you belong
Now you can be my queen
Or you can be my slave

Step closer into the darkness
So I can feel you and taste your scent again
Stand closer into the darkness
So I can feel you and taste your scent again

A masquerade
Fulfill the prophecy
Become the Hecate

Look me in the eye
Take me by the hand
There is no escape
Come dance the ghost with me

Run adry, now
I slake my thirst one thee
She's in her cups, and aching
Scrying fortunes in the tea
Stand closer into the darkness
So I can feel you
And taste your scent again
Track Name: Unbound
Unbound:

Is this vertigo?
The voice in the darkness
So tempting
I long to fall
But I’m terrified
I’ve lost it all

Left out in the cold
I need you to hold me
And it’s terrifying
That I’m so alone
I need you to hold me

How taste your fear, Nephilim?
Track Name: Bones
Bones:

I can't get nothing right
I’ve been itching to cross the line
Anticipations got me overwhelmed

The night is withering
Mutter your sweet nothings
Your eyes are whispering
"Savor the blasphemy"
Running through the cemetery
Make haste, and do not tarry
We've got some bones to bury
Savor the blasphemy

Lips a-quiver the trespass of chivalry
Oh so equivocal
Come hither, let's end this rivalry
Paradoxical inhibitions have betrayed your kind
In body and mind

Take this offering,
Engulf me in infernal flame
I swear to God, I’m not insane
But your evil ways are driving me crazy

You'll be the death of me,
Your spirit haunts my dreams
Of those born of the caul
The Nightrider's final song

I can't get nothing right
I’ve been inching across the line
The expectations got me overwhelmed

The night is withering
Mutter your sweet nothings
Your eyes are whispering
"Savor the blasphemy"
You're tearing at the seams
A freak of fever dreams
I live to make you scream
"Savor the blasphemy"
Track Name: Umbra
Umbra:

Dusk on the Evermoor
Cult of Umbra kin
Livid
Varicose
Swing on the gallow tree
Tattooed in shadow leaves
Twisted
Atropos

Window of vanity,
Reveal your truth to me
Am I the hand of fate?
Or merely a puppet on the Devil’s strings?
Tracing the cracks in your fractured mirror
Dark reflection engaged

Invasion
Possession
Betrayal
Damnation

Dusk on the Evermoor
Cult of Umbra kin
Livid
Varicose
Swing on the gallow tree
Tattooed in shadow leaf
Twisted
Atropos

Stygian grey Sister
Twisted Lover
Wicked Mother
Have I been woven just to be severed?

Drunk on her witches' brew
She whispered her Gorgon song to me
Veiled in spider silk
Save your Judas kiss for me
In Pandemonium
Tracing the cracks in your fractured mirror
Dark reflection engaged

Scatter the ashes down from the sky
Devour your forked tongue
Bury the bones of all that you left behind

Invasion
Possession
Betrayal
Damnation
