Track Name: The Lost
Dark beasts, concealed within shadows, are feasting on the souls of the innocent wanderers lost deep within the oaken walls that confine those poorly fated Lost.

Devoured! Ripped limb from limb! You're a tasty morsel for these hungry fiends. They thirst for your blood, gorge themselves upon your flesh and expel their seed into you throat. They thrive on the immense suffering you project, doubled, gasping, thrashing for another breath, stripped of all your worldly shit, in the grips of your new reality.

An existence in perpetual hell awaits you. You are the Lost. Perish at the hands of those you betrayed long ago. You are the lost.

A transformation into what you once did hate. Your inner demos are unleashed unto the ones just like you.
Track Name: The Eternal Woe
(Solo Bullard)

The eternal woe, treacherous, pours itself into everything.
Through years of pain, I slumber, never awakened.

Bring back memories of forgotten days.
I cower to the deep recesses of my inner seclusion.
The paths that I’ve made stray far from what I have hoped.
Reclaiming the day as mine: a sheer dream.
No way to undo the catastrophe.

(Solo Bullard)

Pull me back.
Tell me the secret.
Tell me what has been eluding me all these years so I can hope no more.
All chance is lost.
The lure of a pleasant existence is a ruse, to bring more pain to my solitude.
I walk aimlessly through this forest of flame.
Towering infernos laugh at me, mockingly.
I’m losing my sanity and all I hold dear.
Come closer.
Step through the fiery shadows which hide you.
Make yourself infinitely clear and all sorrow all longing shall vanish here.

The wounds that I cut were deep.
Understand, unintentionally these acts were dealt by my hand.

Too hard it seems to free myself from your nocturnal embrace.
The web that binds me keeps me alive and brings comfort to this lonely place.
I cannot free myself…not yet.

A new beginning emerges.
And unlike before, I’m no longer lost in myself.
These cavities which have confined my being now open up and reveal the truth.
Bathe me in your warm glow.
Release me.
I am free.

(Solo Narowski)

Bathe me in your warm glow.
Release me.

Yes, you will be released, but not from me, for you were only trapped within yourself.
