Christian Schaefer Featured this album on the thirteenth issue of RULE of THREE (bit.ly/RULEofTHREEbc). Guitars ready to break out then silenced and drowned in darkness and sorrow by this enormous bass line before the guitars emerge again echoing from an early goth era. There is an urgency to this track. The vocals add just the right amount of anger and hope to overcome the darkness and the build-up of verse and chorus continues right until the end getting stronger and stronger. Favorite track: No Reason.

Track Name: Into This Grave
Beneath this mask there is a man
I'll help you peel it if I can, but if I can't
then who could say that I tried very hard?

So you assimilate
into the black
into this grave
into this state now

into the grave
into this grave

and it can't be beat
because it's listen and repeat
and all your friends do fall
to their feet
they're crumbling crumbling

beneath this man's a sacrifice
they cover you in paint
over your eyes and over your ears
there's no helping it
like they've done for years
and tell you it's good
and you can't be won
they made sure when you were very young

into this grave
into this state

and it can't be beat
because it's listen and repeat
and all your friends do fall
to their feet
they're crumbling crumbling

into this grave
into this grave
Track Name: Adrian's Dirge
So many feelings
pent up in here
left alone
you most fear

can you hear them Adrian?
you've such a troubled mind
and they follow close
six steps behind

you can run from them
sing another song
be kept at bay
but not for long

you can tell your one love
of the railway line
and stagger away
she dials triple nine

one last step
one last time
until you feel
feel alright
there he goes
rest his head
all have gone
all are dead

he slips away in a lucid state
on the night of the 25th
reappears on the morning of the 26th

they gathered early in the morning hour
the bells are ringing now, yes
the bells are ringing now

and the mind can cower
he stands alone beneath terminal tower
not wishing to exist

so many feelings
pent up in here
left alone
you most fear

so many feelings
you cannot commandeer
left alone
you most fear

one last step
one last time
until you feel
feel alright

there he goes
rest his head
all have gone
all are dead
Track Name: Offerings
another one
to please the sun
thy will be done

invading the nation
mass conflagration
the hammer is plotting
collective allotting
it's a political rival
for the enemy trial
or was it a false flag induced by the Comintern

strode across the lobby
black is burning the body
what did the captain say
police have barred that way
and
leaders arriving
death doth declaring
if they had it their way the world would be ablaze

spewing the right words
spinning the right way
can you see where the smoke is
but try not to choke

it's not always the same string
but it's always the same ring
masked by statement of mission
freedom for acquisition
in the name of tomorrow
welcomes this imposition
to abolish the sorrow
in the act of partition

and erase opposition
to conform disposition

it's not always the same string
but it's always the same ring

it's not always the same string
but it's always the same ring

Another one
To please the sun
Thy will be done
Track Name: Helpful Hands
They came into service willingly
To heed the call of your enemy
Packaged wild fire
Useful fool’s desire

You fight come the calling
But no problem solving
Old signs make you wonder
Pull it up
Put it under

They guard a burning house from arson
Thwart invades but fuel the inside
Hang onto wods so pretty
But mark thyself so petty

You fight come the calling
But no problem solving
But terror makes you wonder
Pull it up
Put it under

You fight come the calling
But no problem solving
Through terror makes you wonder
Pull it up
Put it under

Pull it up
Put it under

Pull it up
Put it under

Pull it up
Put it under
Track Name: Passengers
Colors run like blood through painted eyes
Freedom waves and passengers arrive
And we stood there in surprise bound stupefied
And we stood there in surprise while fate arrived

Whittle down my kind
They are the devil from behind
Creeping dangerously close
They sabotage their very own

They hold salvation close
But grip the knife
Come and take this human life
Each man stands a victim of his father’s hand

Another generation comes to close
And every choice that haunts us we oppose -now
But only by collective thought we chose
And only by collective hell arose

And I really hope that this machine will die
Rhetoric clouds perception sense waves goodbye
We stood there in surprise bound stupefied
We stood there in surprise while fate arrived
Track Name: No Reason
i know where devils hide
you watch my back i’ll watch your side
come find me
come find me

this evil feeds off of fear
i’ll do you right just hold me near
treat me right
treat me right

whatever drives you mad
and makes you sick
will be the end of it
don’t let -me go

is this an awful time
have you seen the final line


is this an awful time
have you seen the final line

i know where devils hide
you watch my back i’ll watch your side
i do cry
i do cry

this evil feeds off of fear
i’ll do you right just hold me near
don’t lose me
don’t leave me

whatever drives you mad
and makes you sick
will be the end of it
don’t let me go

i can’t follow you this time
you have reached the final line

i can’t follow you this time
you have reached the final line

don’t you say i didn’t try
i fought as hard as i could fight

don’t you leave me here to die
don’t you leave me here to die
Track Name: Zombie Gold
I will trade humanity, for a family
To get ahead, I’ll make my bed
Become another man
We can still steal the night,
Night away
And tread heavy upon weary souls,
If we want to

Take no piece,
of gold and
take one for the family

take no piece
of gold and
take one for the soul

Another dead, I’ll get ahead,
When I can
And keep close the brother I have
For the numbers
I have built an empire upon the sand
And I climb the ladder of twisted fate
When I can

take no piece
of gold and
take one for the family

take no piece
of gold and
take one for the soul

We can get by without much to relate to,
Relate to
We can get by
We can get by without much put my hands to
My hands to
We can get by

It’s hard to touch my only concern
That’s not enough, compromise my love
But I can be mean
And I can be tough

It’s hard to touch my only concern
That’s not enough, compromise my love
But I can be mean
And I can be tough

Take no piece,
of gold an
take one for your family

take no piece
of gold and
take one for your soul
Track Name: Painted Eyes
Counting down

Thunder gun and fire stick
that bring us death and make us sick
and castles on the sea

counting down

to conquer forth with iron hand
but this is not your promise land
by god given command

counting down
