Track Name: Masters of Mankind
Masters of mankind
Possessed by their greed
Ground into the dirt
We're strangled by our leash

All for ourselves and now nothing left; Starve the majority!
Retreat inside the walls where we rule; Masters pulling strings!
Divide the lower class and watch them fight; Destroy their unity!
Convince them that there is no class war; Victory Assured!

Masters of mankind
deceive the populace
live in arrogance
endless entitlement

This vile maxim
putting us in chains
the last glimmer of hope
is just a gilded cage

All for ourselves and now nothing left; Starve the majority!
Retreat inside the walls where we rule; Masters pulling strings!
Divide the lower class and watch them fight; Destroy their unity!
Convince them that there is no class war; Victory Assured!

Now we must resist.
Now we organize.
Crush our enemies.
Control our own lives.

Now we stand together,
blurring social lines.
Standing to resist,
the Masters of Mankind
Track Name: Exodus to Andromeda
Verse:
Exiled from my homeland
Now uninhabitable
Betrayed by my own kind
Their greed instatiable

PreChorus:
The void all around me
Seeking asylum, hopeless
A trajectory towards entropy
Cast into infinite darkness

Chorus:
Breaching new frontiers in this vacuum of death
Claustrophobia sets in but I must push on
Each passing second tears from me another breath
Primordial fear overcomes me, realizing I was wrong
-scream-

Verse:
Confined in isolation
My sanity slips away
Tormented by my reflection
Of my existence itself

PreChorus:
My vision is fading. (Sight blacks out.)
The ship has stopped moving. (In an ocean of stars.)
Reach for Andromeda shaking. (Suffocation.)
In disillusionment.

Chorus:
Breaching new frontiers in this vacuum of death
Claustrophobia sets in but I must push on
Each passing second tears from me another breath
Primordial fear overcomes me, realizing I was wrong

Bridge:

There is no hope for salvation it is just a farce
Life is a means to an end, an ironic survival
Showing that self awareness and intellect are scarce
And yet we still strive for a worthless life eternal

Just die.
Track Name: Beast of Creation
Verse
In the valley
A tyrant
Claims the land as its own

It’s met with
Resistance
Invader to its home

Engaging
In combat
Submerged to murky depths

The mountains
Overflow
A battle to the death

Pre-chorus
Through rivers they go
Breaking through the ground below
A war of the gods
To shape the land

Chorus
The legends they are told
A clash of power to behold
The blood of the tyrant
Grows into man

In the ocean they rise
Glutton meeting its demise
The beast of creation
A dying wrath

Second Verse
Beyond the
Monster’s home
The violence rages on

Coyote
Spear in hand
A clash of brain and brawn

Dams
Give way
To their ferocity
Raging
Current
Carries them to the sea

Pre-chorus
Through rivers they go
Breaking through the ground below
A war of the gods
To shape the land

Chorus
The legends they are told
A clash of power to behold
The blood of the tyrant
Grows into man

In the ocean they rise
Glutton meeting its demise
The beast of creation
A dying wrath

Third Verse
Under the
Crashing waves
Wishpoosh devours him

But from
The inside
A spear pierces its skin

Blood curdles
From its cry
As it falls to the sand

The remains of its body
Are spread across the land

Pre-chorus
Through rivers they go
Breaking through the ground below
A war of the gods
To shape the land

Chorus
The legends they are told
A clash of power to behold
The blood of the tyrant
Grows into man

Second part of last chorus
From its body cultures grow
Mountainsides to valleys low
The beast of creation
Has met its death
Track Name: Berserk
Verse:
Born under the hanging tree, No one's life is lived for free
Forging a violent destiny, Horror burned in memory
War is all he knows, The battlefield is his home
With an iron sword, He cuts his own path

Chorus
Killing a god, Follow no laws
Vengeance and wrath, eternal path
Break free from fate, Consumed by hate
Justice in blood, Going Berserk

Verse:
Endless ambition; flame in his heart
Sacrifice required with his friends he starts
To reach his holy heights a bridge of bodies is what he needs
Climbing over corpses, companions fall and bleed.

Chorus:
Killing a god, Follow no laws
Vengeance and wrath, eternal path
Break free from fate, Consumed by hate
Justice in blood, Going Berserk

Bridge:
Brutality
Fatality
Causality
Is killing me

Verse:
Tired, sleep murdered by another's hand
Forced to fight by the brand
His vengeance and hate is how he feeds the hound
Longing to escape, but to his fate he is bound

Chorus:
Killing a god, Follow no laws
Vengeance and wrath, eternal path
Break free from fate, Consumed by hate
Justice in blood, Going Berserk
