    1. Wolf Is Loose

    | back to the top

    The hero of the gods
    The crossing of the threshold
    The belly of the whale
    Refusal of return
    Hollow eyes
    Dry pale legs
    Howling on
    Thru fields and graves
    Language of the signs
    Symbols to our sight
    Guardian to thy throne
    Take on form
    Daylight
    Hide the skin
    Cut it off
    Scatter ash in the wind
    Shapeshifter rolling on winds of tyrants make
    Fierce lore of fanged horn
    Danger all the way
    Night's sea reflection The faces of bodies slain
    Returning to the form of natural human's fate
    Grown from the cold
    Spirits unclean
    Dealer of the days
    The ice will thaw
    As the soldier walks thru the crimson side
    Researchers of aftermath
    Dispelling disarming man
    One-toed horses subject of Genesis
    And the immigrants
    Fundamental side of a human mind
    Hulder folk and fairies
    So believe
    The hero of the gods
    The crossing of the threshold
    The belly of the whale
    Refusal of return

    2. Crystal Skull

    | back to the top

    Guide a truth
    Prevail and ride
    Into the black hole
    Searching the crystal
    Making the veins bleed
    The source of consciousness
    Alive
    Crystalline resonance
    Into the black hole
    Searching the crystal
    Making the veins bleed
    A deep breath before the plunge
    One million voices
    Dispelling
    A thousand faces
    Disarming
    Running thru the darkness
    Holding hearts in my eyes
    Falling short of gauntlet
    Covered in blood-sucking flies
    The touch is cold
    I tore a path screaming through wind and blood
    I will it all

    3. Sleeping Giant

    | back to the top

    Earth has burst
    Mountain flames
    Moon beheld
    Father snake
    Mind control
    Has left its nest
    Shame on
    Bulls roar loud
    The fearless fall
    Wooden vessel
    Broken wings
    Caught my killer
    In my grave
    Shame on
    Eyes of grace
    Kill again
    Trapped in maze
    Trembling fear
    Head scorched brow
    Perish the land
    Shame on
    A vast calm wilderness
    The call to adventure comes
    Lead and land atop this rock
    Infinite path carved with unrivaled skill

    4. Capilliarn Crest

    | back to the top

    Capillarian gone away
    It's a shattered wave
    Cosmogenic cycles
    Universal dreams
    The unseen essence
    Energies refreshed
    12 years of silence
    Frivolous to moments
    Shake the hand of lightning
    Capillarian carnate
    Capillarian carnate
    You don't have to go
    Escaping from the long way
    And leave us here all alone
    Carve
    Carve out your soul
    Lay it on the altar
    And leave us here all alone
    This river is running violence
    A way to catch our breath
    Rising from the mercury
    We will climb to bestow our trust
    Take away the anchor
    Amplify the mystery
    Inhale the earth and wind
    Map out the plans to our test

    5. Circle of the Cysquatch

    | back to the top

    Elephant spirits
    Tower of ivory
    Story of ancient deities
    Seizure of the fleece
    Protector of its place
    Fly thru dreamscapes
    Of valleys gullies and spires
    Herd across suicidal slopes
    Changeless moonshines
    Circle cyclops image
    A race of one-eyed beings
    All feared and shunned
    Rakshasa demon
    Seizure of the fleece
    Protector of its place
    Eyes all around you
    Enter the labyrinth
    Visions of the hunted
    Beware the birchmen
    Incisors thought to be
    Skulls of us
    Our release

    6. Bladecatcher

    (Instrumental)

    7. Colony of Birchmen

    | back to the top

    This forest is growing faster than I can tell
    Cell structure eats away at a massive swell
    Seems however I'm a victim of circumstance
    Hunt for ogres and dwarves
    Lion slicer
    Run with death
    Run with death
    White faces coming closer with every step
    Earth envelopes taking breath without happenstance
    Carve my teeth out ripping through the sheep's head curse
    Hunter gatherer
    Ridden from the cave
    Run with death
    Run with death
    Gone away
    My heart's gone away
    Taking everything
    My heart's gone away
    Take it now
    Hunt for ogres and dwarves
    Lion slicer
    Run with death
    Run with death
    Gone away
    My heart's gone away
    Taking everything
    My heart's gone away
    Take it now

    8. Hunters of the Sky

    | back to the top

    Running faster than I ever have
    Evading sharks of the sky
    Death trap and I kill again
    Dig through my own hives
    Shelter from sky
    Talon of raptor
    Force-fed glass giant moth
    Reaping fields of the flesh
    Heavy hand thwart the scheme
    Of the dominant nymph
    Omen she brings
    Carried on weathered wings
    Fly reptile
    Leather wings
    Bones hollow
    Petrified
    Running faster than I ever have
    Evading sharks of the sky
    The earth's ashing floats
    What is good for man
    Cast us out into the known

    9. Hand of Stone

    | back to the top

    No one sees the difference in the land
    Where the sky meets earth
    Form horizons
    Hand of stone
    Arm of strength
    Nature's fire
    Fist of gold
    Venom stains the lips and burns the tongue
    With vengeance and hatred
    Extremities forged in nature's fire
    Unrelenting vigor
    Carve the future
    Feast or famine
    Drink deception
    The wells run dry
    The need for temptation
    Falling thru brain field
    Head for divide
    The hand matches
    The hand that leads the way
    To kill the shepherd
    Just to see his face
    Heed the warning
    Ingest the rotten bone
    The hand that falters
    The hand that turns to stone
    Chew on the root that gives us sight
    Cranium shatters
    Feed the needles as they fall
    The truth
    The mask
    Brain divided

    10. This Mortal Soil

    | back to the top

    Floating in red again
    A deepened soil
    Nothing
    Empty cup
    Trade not known
    Showing promise of a perfect land
    No regrets for a fallen ground
    The omen passed
    Woman possessed
    Reflect on the duties held
    Oceans morph to dust
    Chasing the timeline
    Bolts of light flash
    Original storm god
    The atmosphere that floats above the earth
    Is corrupt for man
    This we know
    What has dwelt within the early dawn has gone away
    That's okay
    Dig
    Climb
    Ancient elm
    Root
    Ride the vine of father ground our carving
    The atmosphere that floats above the earth is corrupt for man
    This we know
    Circle
    Made of ash
    Betray her presence
    Huntress
    Gentle breath
    Listen to the poison rose

    11. Siberian Divide

    | back to the top

    Ice god shakes the earth
    Destruction of the path
    Sinking deeper in the snow
    Eating bark with blackened hands
    Swollen fingers frozen jaw
    Warm teeth wrapped around my wrist
    Frostbite eating away at our limbs
    Slit the belly brontotherium
    Climb towards vermillion snowbank fall
    Station of the crosses prayer save all
    Chewing bone
    Euphoria
    Land and sky
    Shining skull
    Ice field blanket land
    Hunted beyond the fray
    No direction known
    Running with the band
    Provisions wearing thin
    Avalanche sweeps the land
    Starvation setting in
    Spilling all that's left
    Should've kept the fruits from virgin's vine
    Three-horned face
    Pillar of red
    Evil lives atop my crooked spine
    Rosebush current flow
    Carmine river go
    Solar storms erupt on the sun
    Ice fields blanket land
    Snow queen
    Hypothermia
    Ice lips
    Hallucination
    Ice field blanket land
    Hunted beyond the fray
    No direction known
    Running with the band
    Provisions wearing thin
    Avalanche sweeps the land
    Landscape ebb 'n' flow
    Think I felt the end of time
    Skulls aglow as crystal shines
    And starts to warm the empty climb
