Track Name: i carry no ghost
Time
I’ll set it in time
Shine
I’ll see it shine
Time
I’ll face it in time
Shine
I’ll see it shine

time time now is the time one chance one life one time to shine
I carry no ghost
I carry no ghost

every burning book becomes a sun
every broken chain becomes a holy one

when god stops howling
the devil stops singing
I crawl into the slaughterhouse: a fat fuck with a slave soul
I stand naked in the slaughterhouse: blood and bone but my soul is my own.
I moonwalk out of the slaughterhouse: and my soul drinks the burning sun.

I can see the death in your eyes
Can you see the life in mine
Reckon it was a feeling at some time
Reckon its glimmer was a fantastic line
Track Name: for the damned
send me out
send me out
into the ether

I resurrect beneath the killing hand I
burn my escape and then i make my stand
Ignite inspire incend indulge defy

the sky is burning
leviathan smiles
i spread my blood for miles and miles
Ignite inspire incend indulge defy

for masters spine I carve a shiv
while the dead all dance and pray to live
we build our souls as we burn
and all the damned become divine
and all the pearls they tear through swine
we build our wings as we fall

send me out
send me out
into the ether

all the masters are skinned alive
the slaves all licking butchers knives
Ignite inspire incend indulge defy

we all smother our souls as we sing
the seasons weeping gasoline
Ignite inspire incend indulge defy

for masters spine I carve a shiv
while the dead all dance and pray to live
we build our souls as we burn
and all the damned become divine
and all the pearls they tear through swine
we build our wings as we fall

I return with rain
I discover ice
my hands made of son
roses erupting from eyes

I'm cut down seven times
I rise up eight
I nail my soul to the heart of hell
I nail my flesh to the head of heaven’s gate

this holy oblivion sings
and I dance with the dead
my resurrection song
dressed in masters scalp
and masters severed head.
sacred bloody unbroken and free

I was a god as mute as freedom
reborn as a river
for the damned that will not burn
for the dead that will not die
Ignite inspire incend indulge defy

i was a devil full of mercy
i was a sun full of soul
for the damned that will not burn
for the dead that will not die
Ignite inspire incend indulge defy
Track Name: burn the devil down
I was heaven I was hell I was sea I was sky
I was god I was soul I was a dirty Lie
I was slave I was free I was burned on a hill
I was born baby born to pay your butcher's bill

put on my fire crown and burn the devil down

I was horse I was hoof I was blood I was stone
I was burning alive I was moonwalking home
I was engine I was eye I was nude for the kill
I was born baby born to pay your butcher's bill

now I forgive you my brother my butcher my sister my savior my father of fire
sun sears a smile into the sea
that mother fucker sold my soul to me
Track Name: verses
I am the truth now set me down
Buy me buy me
I am the truth now set me down
Buy me buy me
The moth has found its mark
It’s an arrow to your skull
The moth has found its mark
It’s here hiding in the dark

This blood is from my dreams
All over everything
And all of my old scenes were
Buried by these new thieves
The moth has found its mark
It’s that dark part of your heart
The moth has found its mark
It’s that dark place in your heart

I soul kiss the motherfucking abyss
an army of dead
and I'm foaming at the mouth
comes pouring out of your head
and I'm foaming at the mouth
grandfather was a lion
a bed of nails to burn and die on
I'm foaming at the mouth
I'm foaming at the mouth

I wear your ghost like a tourniquet
the sun wrapped around my neck
i wear your ghost like a tourniquet
the butcher’s bill hasn't burned us yet.

And when that mother fucker says you’re going down
You bet your ass you’re going down

and if you walk with god
You might never come home
and if you walk with god
You might never come home

One man
One skull
One riot
One soul
Track Name: 10000 beautiful lakes
10000 beautiful lakes
filled with the blood of all my mistakes
voice of snow and voice of sky
my unconquered soul calling me to life

I met my self on fire
face in the flames of my funeral pyre
laugh with the storm and I laugh as they lie
my unconquered soul calling me to life

There is rain
And here is that sky
There is Cain
And he is mine

I have hung my men
I have stainless eyes
I have wrecked my faith
I have told all of my lies

I see the toys of my king
The tear and the sting
I kept a long flame
I wept a cold stream
I am on the wrong side of everything

10000 spiders tear me apart
10000 devils murder my heart
voice of snow and voice of sky
my unconquered soul calling me to life

my leg buried by my own hand
no angels to help me stand
laugh with the storm and I laugh as they lie
my unconquered soul calling me to life

There is rain
And here is that sky
There is Pain
And it is mine

I have hung my men
I have stainless eyes
I have wrecked my faith
I have told all of my lies

I see the toys of my king
The tear and the sting
I kept a long flame
I wept a cold stream
I am on the wrong side of everything
On the wrong side
On the wrong side
On the wrong side of everything

Woman clothed in sun
Sings to me
You’ll die young
Storm of blood and bone
Sings to me
You’ll die alone

On the wrong side
On the wrong side
On the wrong side of everything

Voice of snow and voice of sky
Voice of storm and voice of lie
The devil's hand's around my heart
It's beautiful to be alive
