about

Ruins of an Empire Sydney, Australia

I had a dream last night. I dreamt I was a dove flying over the sea. And then I dove into the ocean... And I swam with the dolphins. I was two animals joined as one... which meant good things are coming. Good things.

Track Name: Glorious Massacre
Lyrics:
Death emerges, from the Dusk
Soaring forth upon, Blackened wings
Impossible Demon, Herald of Despair

Glorious Massacre, Discarded Life, Choking fear, Wrath Eternal

Herald of Despair, Destroyer of life, Terror of the night

Glorious Massacre, Discarded Life, Choking fear, Wrath Eternal
Track Name: Where the Demons Dwell
Lyrics:
Stumbling through, This vacant space,
This mist is so thick, Impenetrable sorrow, and frustration, This desolate mind of mine

Can you hear me screaming? Can't you save me? Waiting

I'm lost in this abyss, Swept away in side the fog,
Where the demons dwell, Where the demons dwell

Lost in my silent reverie, suffocating escaping thought,
I can't let me win this time, Sense lost in the fog

Can you hear me screaming? Can't you save me? Waiting

I'm lost in this abyss, Swept away in side the fog,
Where the demons dwell, Where the demons dwell

Shakes these walls, Collapses around me,
Imprisoning me my savior, My tormentor me.

I'm lost in this abyss, Swept away in side the fog,
Where the demons dwell, Where the demons dwell
Track Name: Tear You Apart
Lyrics:
Fury lives and breathes, Restraint, giving away
Crimson frenzy spits, It's rage,
I ache to tear you apart, with these hands
Fucking destroy what you are

When you fall , I will rise, When you fall I will rise

When the fire burns out, When you breathe your last, relief, washes over

My dreams buried now, Nothing left to lose,
Rage intensifies its, Time to die,
I will tear you apart, with these hands
Fucking destroy what you are

When the fire burns out, When you breathe your last
When your dreams have died , Relief washes over

When the fire burns out, When you breathe your last
When your dreams have died , Relief washes over
Track Name: As the Walls Close In
Lyrics:
Gentle whisper reminds me, screams to me,
It's taunting, screaming you're going no where
This breath that trails down towards my neck,
Reminds me, screams surrender
Eternities pass with each and every day,
A strength is built from the flaws of the weak
I've washed these hands,
A thousand times
And still they remain unclean,
Burdened, unforgiven

Left to dwell, Left to linger,
Bleeding to feel alive
Feet planted, Eyes snapped shut,
Walls close in
Left to fight against this,
Left to dwell, Left to linger
Choking to feel alive
Closing in

Walls close in,
As my mind grows thin
As it all surrounds,
So I scream surrender
From this hell,
Breathing down my neck
As it all surrounds,
As the walls close in

Surrender to me
I am the hell in which you dwell

Left to dwell, Left to linger
Bleeding to feel a-live
Feet planted, Eyes snapped shut,
Walls close in
Left to fight against this,
Left to dwell, Left to linger
Dying to feel alive,
Closing in

Walls close in,
As my mind grows thin
As it all surrounds,
So I scream surrender
From this hell,
Breathing down my neck
As it all surrounds,
As the walls close in

This road doesn't, Seem to stop
This path will have no end
It is breathing down my neck, And so I will re-main
Will re-main

Surrender to the road, As the walls close in
