Track Name: Raise the Pyramids
Born from Ashes
From Red Sands
We return now
To our lands
Our heads turn skyward
The chant begins
Dimensions crumble
As the veil wears thin

The stars align
Our voices rise
Our spirits cry out
Raise the Pyramids

These hands strike strings now
Heavy chords grow
The planets rumble
The old ones groan
Their days are numbered
This they know
We own the future
The path is shown

The stars align
Our voices rise
Our spirits cry out

Take this heavy bond
Stronger than blood
Destroy the old ways
Raise the Pyramids

The stars align
Our voices rise
Our spirits cry
Raise the Pyramids
Track Name: Black Leather
I see you motion
From across the room
Callin' out shapely suggestions
From the gloom
You came here knowin'
Spells you’d be castin'
A smile flashed and clothes so tight
Ensure it’s everlastin'

You got - what I need
(And) that is
Black Leather

And we’re feeling alright
So dark, smooth and tight
Black Leather

Hearts beating faster
As I move your way
Eyes and hips, the way you feel
I gotta make your day
You know
I love
the sounds you’re makin'
Coming from the way you groove
I’m yours for the takin'

You got what moves me
(And) that is

(You) got me on my knees
for your
Black Leather

And we’re feeling alright
So dark, smooth and tight
Black Leather
Track Name: Your Altars
Many things in your altars
Should stay in their tombs
Those things that you worship
They author your doom
Unfeeling demigods
Of avarice and greed
Ignoring the cries of
All those in need

We built this prison
Blind brick by brick
A Hell that we've chosen
As ego flames lick
Our psyches all burned out
Our minds never missed

With faces towards Heaven
Our screens higher still
Dark mirrors at arm's length
These voids never filled
The bright mocking visage
Self-photos and words
Narcissistic distractions
From a world we misheard

We built this prison
Blind brick by brick
A Hell that we've chosen
As ego flames lick
Our psyches all burned out
Our minds never missed

Across a wastelands
Of mirrors and lies
The hearts of the dreamers
Are punished and die
With deafening
Silence
To all their cries

We fashion these Altars
To lords of decay
Can we snuff out the candles
And all turn away
To take back our losses
These moments in time
Free from entrapment
From the tombs of our mind
Track Name: Everything (But You)
I forgot to tell you
As the engines roared
And carried me away
Now I float here weightless
Among the sea of stars
Wish you could hear me say

Things I held so dearly
Seem trivial and vain
As stars shift red to blue
The moments growing longer
Wasted on such petty things
I would trade it all for you

Speeding through the blackness
With nothing but my thoughts
I can’t let you fade
If you get this Transmission
Hold it close my only one
The dream I’d never trade

Things I held so dearly
Seem trivial and vain
As stars shift red to blue
The moments growing longer
Wasted time on petty things
I would trade them all for you
I could lose everything but you
I could lose everything but you

‘cross light years I hurtle
I hope your arms await
On that beacon oh so blue
I regret it took a
Universe apart
To realize the truth
I could lose everything but you
Track Name: Journey
A million lives I’ve led
A warrior out of time
But now my sword is heavy
The future in decline

I see stars are falling
Destruction on the wind
Are there more paths before me
(or) is this is my journey’s end

The planets rose and fell
Worlds prospered and decayed
and up until this moment
I always knew the way

I see stars are falling
Destruction on the wind
Are there more paths before me
(or) is this is my journey’s end

I raise my fist to the sky
As mountains crumble
As seas they boil
I scream to pierce the heavens
As Earth cracks open

I felt the weight of Atlas
But now it falls away
My weapons at the ready
My journey goes on another day
