lyrics

Progressive blade, emerge!
Giant's blade, emerge!
Corrupted blade, emerge!

Cry of hounds
A new day is forming
Formulation enters completion

Run through the forest
Run, run through the forest
Find the golden crystal and learn

Omen
Castle gates
The moon falls at last
into Atlantic

Warning
Get yourself into the bomb shelter
Make sure the hatch is locked

Sleep comes too soon
Awake to a new day
Each day tell a different lie
To make sense of a world gone awry

Crescent shape reveals a tunnel
Gateway to another world
Create the new, escape the old
Beckon another illusion of existence

Learn the reality of the world around me
Careful craft another lie
Dialectic treason
Lust of labedo is placebo for the soul

Crossed through ancient times
Passed through premortal sights
Everything flows and webs cover the Earth
Hollow tusks bore their way to the sun
Sins of fathers and daughters

crucified soldiers
still screaming for vengeance
Luminating orbix hovers above a death cloud
gives sight to the lost warriors below
Gives new life to the soil that corrodes
rusted ground scrapes away to show the pale
white forgotten dimension of Abraham's time.

Character cosplay ruminates a new found hobby
that's likely to terminate the soul of...

Progressive blade, emerge!
Giant's blade, emerge!
Corrupted blade, emerge!

Cry of hounds
A new day is forming
Formulation enters completion
Run through the forest, run through the forest
Find the bulls-head crystal and learn

Think I'm a vegetable – a miserable husk of a man
Cyanide release my whole
Make sense of an insane world
Swamp-clad figure leads the way

Progressive blade, emerge!
Giant's blade, emerge!
Rewind the universe
Nabta cries out for freedom
