Track Name: Murder on Contract
A lady in black, cold retribution
The chapter’s begun, seeking restitution
In the shadows, all pulses on high
Gotta make it fast, ‘cause the job’s on the line

Won’t relent, till the target’s felled
Her aspiration is to see you in hell
Assassin, butcher, murder on contract
Dagger, saber, provisions for attack

How do you face her in the dark
When she is so hard to find?
Is she right, behind you now
Or is she just a myth inside your mind?

One hit, one mark, such a lucrative trade
Sink it deep, another notch on the blade
Blood on the knife, objective’s complete
Pack up, get out, and call for the priest

Won’t relent, till the target’s felled
Her aspiration is to see you in hell
Assassin, butcher, murder on contract
Dagger, saber, provisions for attack

How do you face her in the dark
When she is so hard to find?
Is she right, behind you now
Or is she just a myth inside your mind?

How do you face her in the dark
When she is so hard to find?
Is she right, behind you now
Or is she just a myth inside your...?
How do you face her in the dark
When she is so hard to find?
Is she right, behind you now
Or is she just a myth inside your mind?
Track Name: Age of Ashes
Born in submission, under the regime
Young left with shattered, remains of a dream
Big brother’s watch guard, not freedom sustained
Disenchanted lineage, the future waits in vain, again!

Read from the new truth, just rewritten lies
To question equals certain death, same face, new disguise
The skilled no place to grow, the sewer no seeds to sew
The artifacts are staled, by the status quo!

No one said it’d be like this!

Sold out, you know we’re down on a future
Been downsized by the counterculture
No hope, ‘cause there’s nothing for you
The age of ashes, balance overdue

Sold to authority, driven by profit and greed
They’ll sell what you really want, save for what you need
Equality under law, won’t come for those who can’t pay
You can’t own paradise, your government gave it away!

You ain’t gonna get too far!

Sold out, you know we’re down on a future
Been downsized by the counterculture
No hope, ‘cause there’s nothing for you
The age of ashes, balance overdue
“Stay in school for a great career”
Was subterfuge, nothing appeared
Born you are, in the machine
The age of ashes, promise unseen!

Fed remains of utopia!

Sold out, you know we’re down on a future
Been downsized by the counterculture
No hope, ‘cause there’s nothing for you
The age of ashes, balance overdue
“Stay in school for a great career”
Was subterfuge, nothing appeared
Born you are, in the machine
The age of ashes, promise unseen!
Track Name: Dreams of Madness
Awakened by nightmares, the fates in your head
Where lucidity once tread
Asking the mentor, but what does he know?
The answers to questions lie six feet below

Echo their solemn cries that chars the shadow inside

The dreams of madness, take hold of your life
Your sanity, they’ll crucify
The dreams of madness, control and terrorize
The limits of reason, are paralyzed

On the horizon, storms in the midst
All here are destined to suffer
The eyes of deception, and the teeth of their lies
It’s not just a dream anymore

Echo their solemn cries that chars the shadow inside

The dreams of madness, take hold of your life
Your sanity, they’ll crucify
The dreams of madness, control and terrorize
The limits of reason, are paralyzed...

The dreams of madness, take hold of your life
Your sanity, they’ll crucify
The dreams of madness, control and terrorize
The limits of reason, are paralyzed...
Track Name: Through the Mirror
Seems there's some commotion, starting in town
Wild run emotions, as their blood coats the ground
No innocent are spared, caught in the crossfire
Papers call it a "surge", and send it on the wire

Chorus:
Looking through the mirror, of lies and illusion
The story sold, blurred with delusion
Looking through the mirror, society disintegrates
New Rome has had its run, liberty eviscerates

Distortions of the truth, for an illegal war
No pittance for the lost, lives of the poor
No cost too small, just ignore the flood
When the price of oil, is the price of blood

Appointed misleaders, empire's formation
Who fix the law, purchased legislation
Gone are the days, of envisioned democracy
Welcome to the land, of the American theocracy

Looking through the mirror, of lies and illusion
The story sold, blurred with delusion
Looking through the mirror, society disintegrates
New Rome has had its run, liberty eviscerates
Track Name: In The Night (Remix)
Searching the land, far and wide
Unaffected action, seems so trite
Protected by his camouflage
And hidden from all sight
Taking the orders on command
Give the wicked their last rites
Impassive of this vain act
He has a fascist in his sights

Place your finger, on the trigger
Tonight you take another life
In your crosshairs, stalks your prey
Deadly sharpness in the night

(Lock!...)
(Load!...
(Fight!...)
In the night!

Track a target, squeeze the trigger
Another number added to the score
On the ambush, a silent killer
Ever searching to add one more
Under fire, a lethal game
We’ve got to hold on and survive
Entrusted with a nation’s freedom
Outwit and come out alive

Place your finger, on the trigger
Tonight you take another life
In your crosshairs, stalks your prey
Deadly sharpness in the night

(Lock!...)
(Load!...
(Fight!...)
In the night!

(Lock!...)
(Load!...
(Fight!...)
(In the night!...)
(Lock!...)
(Load!...
(Fight!...)
In the night!
Track Name: A Prayer Away
Hail Mary, full of Grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God
Pray for us sinners, now
And at the hour of death.
...Amen
Track Name: Infidel
I've said my prayers, for my penance I prepare
Salvation, is a prayer away

Prechorus:
A new crusade, on ancient sand
Kill to possess, the Promised Land
Martyr or murder, sustaining death
Those who sacrifice, will be blessed

Advance the doctrine, raised to hate
God deliver us, from those who speak in his name

Prechorus:
Interpretation, of his will
His divine plan, must be fulfilled
Religion or cult, the nation's dissolved
Slaughter for us, you'll be absolved

Chorus:
We lay down our lives, in the name of god
Cleanse our holy land, kill the heathen dogs.
Blind devoted will, ignorant desperate faith
Will time remember them, as insurgent or a saint?

The Gaza crusade, reclaim the holy land
An Inch is gained, more martyrs the for father's hand

2000 years of sacred animosity
...Forsaker of the cause
Blur the lines between malice and creed
...Holy scripture is your law
Elder tyranny, dispatcher of rights
...The fear of death impels
Believe in yourself, lead the fight
...I fight the…
Infidel
Track Name: A Passage of Dawn
Instrumental
Track Name: The Heretic (Remix)
Come and walk with the man, his evil you'll embrace
Don't listen: he's the devil, he'll rob you of your grace
You cannot find the truth, the inquest of your soul
You won't live to tell, the terrors he controls

Chorus:
The heretic, condemned at dawn
The heretic, just Satan’s pawn

I will spread terror to all, malevolence in my mind
Remorseful vengeance surrounding me, annihilation of their kind
My beliefs are opposed, I know I'm not alone
How can I not question, as a man I am my own
