Track Name: No Blood Has Honor
(solo - mm)

faith condemns
faith condones
faith creates fear’s traditions
fear consumes
fear controls
fear belies your ambitions

fear preserves
fear demands
fear the fall into depression
lose control
lost control
shrinking down into submission

do you remember losing your child eyes?
colors fading, edges jagged
ripped your gaze from the sky
into starving darkness
did hatred deliver the hope that died?
when you killed for that adventure?
when you stole the joy that
you were denied?
will you outrun all your failures?

and when you close your eyes
how do you close your eyes?
what could you know about honor?

(solo - cg)

blood without honor
no blood has honor

dead fathers
dead sons
what could you know about honor?
dead mothers
dead daughters
what could you know about honor?
dead children
dead loves
what could you know about honor?
lost youth
dead hope
what could we know about honor?
Track Name: The Din of the Mourning
the din of the mourning
roaring in tongues

rattles every organ
no sound escapes
the sky as cathedral
never unheard

screams bleach the skin
make ghosts of fears
bodies stacked high to defend the pale

scavengers appear
to pick apart the bones
feasting in the mountain of horror
scavengers, they wait
they glower at the thrones
together in their isolation

sever now your reason,
abandon all your sight
so lost to tales, all logic fails
and ignorance commands your fealty

blind leading blind
dead commands the live
children howl while elders scowl and flesh
is carved to stave off decay

from the shadows, the preachers call
vomiting doomed condemnation on all
bold declarations, the vision of paul
first sight reveals that their lies are failures

i praise the end! i praise the end!
barred the gates
panic reigns
your cries the only lamentation

scavengers appear
to pick apart the bones
feasting in the mountain of horror
scavengers, they wait
they glower at the thrones
together in their isolation

torrents and torrents of shit
the din of the mourning

worthless in life, hopeless endeavor
nothing remembered, death as in life
every single word is a weapon against
always the victim, never to blame
hemorrhage together, dig at your wounds
every failing a reflection of your stagnation


i fear the mourning’s call
scars silently corrupt
we wait too long forever
we wait too long for life
we wait too long forever
now the time for change
has long since died

the end of every joy
we are our own undoing

i praise the end! i praise the end!
you’ve barred the gates as panic reigns
last breath unmourned and unheard
Track Name: The Ones We Lost
departed, every sound is distant now
and through it all, to it, i am claimed
the air stinks of regret, skin is thick with it
the planet spins, the world outside
is still the same
how do i live with this atrocity?
who do i blame for this defeat?
beg, plead, scream, there’s no
the world is damaged and
there’s nothing i can change

obscene, the day
and the sunlight that it brings
the past and the future,
the sentiment it clings to
and now i question moment
i question every word
the regret, the absence,
the feelings of absurdity
that stricken me with weakness
that sap me of my pride

it tears, it tears, it punishes
the living who would hide
disease, defeat, the violence
that renders every life
to undo all the suffering,
to undo all the hurt
and there is nothing that
i wouldn’t sacrifice
just to save you from the earth

i regret every word said
i regret every word unsaid
i regret every day spent
i regret every day not spent

we’re all alone
i know we’ve always been
did you leave knowing the ghost
that haunts us here?
did you know that fragments
of you would follow me?
we’re broken down but
the world refuses to see

and the world is out of tune

i feel it in my bones
condemned with regret
we’re left to mourn
for the ones we lost and
the ones we failed to save
