Track Name: Rituale Romanum
Reparing the sins of wayward priests
Sleeping, bare winter death
Hallucination prayer, damnation from voices inside

Bleeding hands, crying eyes
May the kingdom of salvation take me home

Conclusion of pilgrimage
Suffering demonic possession
The icon repells you, die to atone
Anointing of the sick

Bleeding hands, crying eyes
May the kingdom of salvation take me home
Track Name: Nothing But Dust
Going on the second year
Too many past before
Too many left to count
Marching onward, an eternity of men
These bloodstained coats, keep no warmth
I put my trust in a failing god
Now I know how this world comes to end

I set my sights once again on a field full of fear
When will the time come for you to take us home?
And then I realize, the time will never come

Trampled down by iron hooves
Face down in the mud
My friend, this is the end
Marching no more, an eternity of men
I put my trust in a failing god
Now I know we're nothing but dust

I set my sights once again on a field full of fear
When will the time come for you to take us home?
And then I realize, the time will never come
Track Name: Mountainous
Left you all behind, bright light faded
Your mind percieving only your distorted self
Frozen limbs, as you start to climb

By the third cycle of the moon
Your visions coming true in waves
Frozen eyes, as you start to die

Snow beating down, tearing your flesh
Your visions coming true, animating your end
Track Name: Ned Land
I've seen things you won't believe,
voyaging with the Nautilus
The beast from the depths
And though my name won't be engraved in history
I will be remebered

Crashing through the waves
Harpoons in each mans hand
The sea comes crushing down
My fate is sealed

I've seen things you won't believe,
voyaging with the Nautilus
The beast from the depths, devoured my soul
And though my name won't be engraved in history
I will be remembered

Crashing through the waves
Harpoons in each mans hand
The sea comes crushing down
My fate is sealed

My life moves on
The voyage home will be my last
Maybe I will return
20,000 leagues under the sea
Never see land
The voyage home will be my last
Never see land
Track Name: At The End Of Existence
Black wings at your minds chapel
The towers fall, as do your sanity
Enclosed in dirt
Left for yourself and your final thoughts

Bring me my saviour
My Christ of light
Save me from darkness
At the end of existence

Life slips away from my grasp

Your saviour is gone
Your Christ is dead
Nothing but darkness
At the end of existence

Life slips away from my grasp
