Track Name: Mechanical Man
Once I was a human but now I'm not sure what I am
I’ve had so many parts replaced, I'm more machine than man
I paid the price to survive, for that I am damned

If I am not a man
Please tell me what I am

First implants to save my life, then to make me strong
Desiring to improve myself, how is that so wrong?
And now, man machine hybrid, you say I don't belong

If I am not a man
Please tell me what I am
I still do not understand

Inhumanly, you hunt me down
To what you call my lair

Guess what
We're not
Alone
Here

I am not the only one
There are many more like me
We will fight your persecution
We too have a right to be

So you seal your fate
Through your intolerance
Your fleshy bodies too weak to withstand
The ensuing violence
Track Name: Phantom Limb
This keep was home to a soldier of fortune
He came here to be alone
Through the murder holes the light of my lamp flickers
Smoke cannot clear from this place. It hangs and sticks to the walls

This keep calls to me
The flesh yields
Fates are sealed
Thy will be done
Reflect, resection,
Reflect einmal
As the pendulum does not swing
It hangs still

The walls are humming. a noxious, hateful sound.
Their voices, haunting, assail me from all around
I brought myself here, I will remain resolute
I came to meet my death, for absolution

This keep calls to me
The flesh yields
Fates are sealed
Thy will be done
Reflect, resection,
Reflect einmal
As the pendulum does not swing
It hangs still

Pathological retreat
The stars; his high seat
Wolves, ravens, und flies guard my sleep
Far from my keep a lake welcomes sleet

Reflect, resection,
Reflect, einmal
As the pendulum does not swing
It hangs still

Would you pause on the stair?
The teeth of scavengers, I see clear
Their jaws enticing, arresting to the eye
Backs are arching, inviting me to lie
Track Name: Invaders
Everything is quiet, the sky a pleasant blue
Suddenly rifts form in the air, creatures flooding through
Nobody's seen such horror, nobody's known such dread
But if we succumb to fear the human race will soon be dead

Invaders
Enslavers
Predators
Destroyers
Invaders
Enslavers
Predators
Destroyers


A horde seemingly endless, floods forth from the sky
No one knows just what they are, whence they've come or why
Tirelessly they slaughter, plant and man and beast
All Earth's living creatures, more fodder for their feast

Invaders
Enslavers
Predators
Destroyers

I remember the
grass was green and the
Air was clear and
Nature thrived
Now the lands are bare
The skies, smoke and ash
All that once lived here
Has been remade

More meat for the grinder, the grunts are ordered in
Bog them down in human blood, sacrifice yourselves for our kin
Once the foe begins to tire, and dull their claws and teeth
Our crack troops will cut them down, their fluids will flow free

Stand fast men
Hold the line
If we fail
Our world dies
You must fight
For your lives

I remember the
Grass was green and the
Air was clear and
Nature thrived
Now the fields are bare
The sky, smoke and ash
All that once lived here
Has been remade
All man's weapons and
Martial pretensions
Proven wanting
Upon this day
Petty squabbles will
Rage no longer we'll
Never know peace with
Ourselves
