about

This is our first attempt at concept album. A heads up, the first half of the album is more heavy orientated while the later half is rather soft. It may feel a bit weird at first, but it´s all part of the concept and story progression.
Hope you enjoy it.

Track Name: Cassandra: Corrode
no one believes the prophecy

exhale the rusty nails
on blackened earth we sail
trust in this soak it in
the truth will prevail

scream for attention, you'll break our dimension
weak for the words, you tried your best now let the worms

corrode, suppose, explode

exhale the reasons why
we don't hear this mind
so our souls have gone astray, astray, astray

til we can't see, repeating
who knows that we won't just

Corrode, Suppose, Explode

Corrode
Track Name: Cassandra: Prophecy
i've seen it all before
the ending of an endless war
quickly did we rise, and quickly did we fall
quickly did we know it would not last too long

undead synthesis, human impetus

bury the weight of the undiscovered
let us reach for a world to burn
bury the weight
let us reach

bury the moon, carry the sun

have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on their souls
have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on their souls

bury the weight of the undiscovered
let us reach for a world to sunder
crazed and deranged in the mind of a sinner
righteous in angst my sight could not be clearer

untouched oblivion, unscathed oblivious
Track Name: Cassandra: Animate
fears of the dead
remiss of them
wanting someone to fret
oh these nights
are filled with such delight
when will i peel this mask its on too tight

shifting shape into snakes
sifting far away
will we fall to their wrong
doings all the same

oh we might be, stuck with fate
is this a test, are we slaves
bound in chains, a lifeless shell
when can we leave this world it's just too bright

shifting shape into snakes
sifting far away
will we fall to their wrong
doings all the same

´cause we are the ones who know
the price to pay for gold
and the voices in your head
are claiming that you're dead

pierce my veins until you know, yeah
pierce my veins until they show, yeah
Track Name: Dissent: Persecute
my idols have died
and so have i

faking like i'm suicidal
take the hint it's in the title
retribution awaits its cycle
why do we still worship idols

i can feel my eyes on fire
melting in the sun
reaping all the wheat of hatred
burning me for fun

somewhere in the light i find
a glimmering design
something tells me
we will be here for a good while

feet burn, eyes desert
in our minds we belong

silence the night
and slaughter in kind

i can feel my eyes on fire
melting in the sun
seeking all the fear we're made of
teaching us to run

warming and boiling
our blood through thick and thinning

feed worms, i will learn to
teach our children love

psychochronic fever
demon world is merging with ours

coldest nights (to life)
sun will rise
waiting on destiny
pleading for restitution of the fallen sun
waiting for rain to come
praying for pain to drown
Track Name: Dissent: The Fight
melting what was once you
and setting up to go through
the fight with anything,
screaming as we're killing through the night
anything, yet we never seem to even feel
a thing until we are despised, yet it never seems

freezing time as we fail
to end this body trail, it's underneath

to fight anything that moves in sight
does it make you feel
to spite anything with signs of life
for a world without a ceiling

sent from his tongue
carried by our blood
we feel hasty, it's their blood we're tasting

did we become what we are, did we feel from the start
did we become what we are

to fight anything that moves in sight
does it make you feel
to spite anything with signs of life
for a world without a ceiling

take the meaning out of this world
to fight with anything, it never seems (real, too real)
to spite anything, does it ever seem

did we become what we are, did we feel from the start
did we become what we are

to fight anything that moves in sight
does it make you feel
to spite anything with signs of life
for a world without feeling.

take the meaning out of this world
Track Name: Dissent: Heretic
Carry on, sing these psalms
hiding on the mountainside I lie awake and I
Carry on, write my psalms
cycle back and forth until I make my mind decide

Heretic, they called me
Heretic, they called me

Heretic, they called me
Bring him down, down to his knees
down to his knees, down to his knees

make my ancient tree
and set my spirit free
pain, and suffering
the moon reveals
my sky lit limbs beneath
lighting up this cadaver's end

you're Higher, feigning rule
on Fire, shaming the fool
this Pyre, blazing wood
this liar, who said we should

and they can send my soul away
rising up, take this toll
and vanquish my light away

save my soul
freedom's close
take this toll

show the way
to this place
where i can stay

(Heretic, they called me)
(Heretic, they called me)
Track Name: Anamnesis: Remember
leave this wasteland
take this grey sand
own your nature
we'll be watching now

leave this wasteland, take this grey sand
own your nature, we'll be watching

own your nature
and wake up to this withering throne
souls are waiting
awakening to this hungering

remember, remember,remembering this soul
remember, remember,remembering this home

(souls are waiting, awakening to this hungering)
Track Name: Anamnesis: Serenity
its cold enough
the door is shut
we're taking everything before we leave
imagine everything we're gonna see

the world appears so small
it's just a place we used to call on

i'm crawling in my dreams
for stories that make it seem
like more than reality
we're leaving, leaving

the world appears to be so small
the place that i used to call on
the secrets of this darkness drawing near
so the world will just disappear

do you hear the screams?
the voices of this planet we would leave
the cold

the place we used

face your destiny
taste serenity
call on us to go
fall on us to know

we are the same, we are the same
we are the same, we are the same
Track Name: Anamnesis: Rebirth
listen to imagination if it's gonna bring back
something from your recreation, resurrected, once black

listen to imagination if it's gonna bring back
something from your recreation, resurrected, once black

something in the ether's calling I can see the smoke conforming its so
easy when I'm seeing clearly wake me up if I am dreaming but slowly
feed me an ocean of secrets, if we could believe it, slowly

listen closely through this smoke screen you can feel that something's forming it's
easy when i'm breathing freely if you hear me please adhere me, just show yourself
show yourself

rediscover the world inside of us
it makes us feel, it makes us feel enough
sacred sea, a sign of what we'll be

listen closely through this smoke screen you can feel that something's forming it's
easy when i'm breathing freely if you hear me please adhere me, just show yourself

shaping from an undiscovered piece of knowledge but recovered it's (so)
leaving me with nothing but this aching feeling i am stalling, just falling

listen closely through this smoke screen you can feel that something's forming it's
easy when i'm breathing freely if you hear me please adhere me, just show yourself
Track Name: Afterworld: Awaken
this hollow heart is almost dead
its sacred soul all soaked in red

Waking to the sound of silent eyes they shine to mine with true divine
feigning all ambition just to blend, from within

feed me up again, to fill this emptiness
sew me up, i can't taste your suffering
show me i'm not dead, to taste this suffering
help me up i can't face these demons within

opening the light, reaching from inside
something's still alive, that makes me
creep up from the dark, return to my heart
sheltering a spark, that wakes me

written on a tomb, a message of our doom
the curse that we renewed, chased us to our fear
seconds from the light, but in this final moment could you please

feed me up again, to fill this emptiness
sew me up, i can't, taste your suffering
show me i'm not dead, taste this suffering
help me up i can't face these demons within

opening my light, opening my light, opening my light
Track Name: Afterworld: Transform
i didn't know it would feel like this
i didn't know it would feel like this,
a waste of breath in heavens game

i didn't know it would feel like this
i didn't know it was real like this
overwhelming sin, i'm becoming, i'm becoming
i'm something, i'm becoming something else

the shape of the earth surrounds me
waking every piece that never surfaced in its life
to wake me, to save me

didn't know it could feel like this,
didn't know it was real like this overwhelming sin
i'm becoming i'm becoming something else

we are in the dark, we are in the dark, in the dark
retreating underneath the ground of the earth is me
finding me is easy once you look into the ground
pages turning like a fantasy, can't we dream

wandering the forests of memories of the energy we
lost inside when everything faded like a thought

pondering the afterthought of every living night in the dark
in the dark, in the dark, in the dark

the pages turning like the way they're
burning bright, so even the darkest night
will turn to light

the sacred circle of life is waiting
to surface like a raven taking flight and turning white
Track Name: Afterworld: Arrival
the moon is all around and i'm still waking up
there's fires in the sky and yet my mind is shut

there's nowhere we can go, where we can be alone
there's nowhere we can go, where we are not at home
at home

and finally we've found a place with all we need
to rest our heads upon the ground, our minds retreat
there's beauty all around, all around

there's nowhere we can go, where we can be alone
there's nowhere we can go, where we are not at home
