Track Name: Shangri-La
Who is this child, that the fates have foretold?
Sent from the heavens in the stories of old?
You think you'll replace me?
Young boy, you are bold!
You'll realize my power, and, you fool, you will fold!
And so it starts...

It turns the tides, and sets the stage for the stars
reflects the glory of the morning, pulls curtains on our
yesterdays are over and gone, but the moon makes way for the dawns.

I know there's gotta be something
more than just the little bit I've been handed.
You better know that you want what you wish for (I want what I wish for)
in searching for your fate.

I'll be reaching for something better than this meaningless life I've been living,
and I'll never look back.
Brace yourself and hold fast, because more than your life is at stake!

I'll be the architect.
I'll build the world as it was meant to be:
rewarding those that nature designed to rule over the weak.
Divide and conquer
the gods suffer our unwielding wrath.
We'll take over this world.


The stars beckon me to join them in the night sky.
They draw me in like the moon pulls on the tides.
Though everything looks so dark,
I'll embrace their light.

Your race is weak, and your penance won't do.
The ground shakes and you bow at the sight of the
moon!
You were given the grace of this world,
but I'll take it as my own.

I know there's gotta be something
more than just the little bit I've been handed.
You better know that you want what you wish for (I want what I wish for)
in searching for your fate.

I'll be reaching for something better than this meaningless life I've been living,
and I'll never look back.
(I'll be) reaching for something...
Track Name: Thick
I know that I said to this:
I would not surrender,
but this is something I can't keep a secret.
To my wonderful star in the sky:
I beg you for grace and forgiveness.

Dark nights with black moons have been telling tales of what's to come
for quite some time now.
With torn clothes across my back,
I'll say, "I could've swore that it would be this way."


No one will ever hold me down.
No one will ever take me out.
No one will ever hold me down.
No one will ever take me out.

I've tried and tried to describe, but I'm left with nothing time after time.
Time after time.
I've been left behind. I am bruised and blind, but I refuse to die.

I can make gravel out of mountains.
I am destroyer of worlds.
I will desecrate all that you cherish.
You will lament ever being born.
I can make gravel out of mountains.
I am destroyer of worlds.
I will desecrate all that you cherish.
You will lament ever being born.
Track Name: Freedom
So I'm gonna make this place my home,
but not these buildings, not these roads.
Not these roads (roads).
So I'm gonna make this place my home, built on foundations of hope.

And although you may feel free,
you're bound by the fortune that I seek,
and there'll be no difference
between the end of your life and fulfillment of my dreams.
Everything around me feels like home, and everything around me starts to grow.
I'll dig my roots down deep and they will never let me go.

Have you forgotten everything you had here?
We held the stars for as far as the eye could see.
Am I the only one who understands what we had?
How could you ever think of leaving me?
Regardless of the skies telling stories,
I'll take on anything with my family.
As the chosen one I'll build this city
and take down anything with my family.

Such scripted motives mark your indecision.
You know I can give you everything you need.
Keep your sham to yourself,
that he can be enough.
It's so pathetic that you're living this lie.
if you leave, there's no turning back.
If you abandon us, there's no second chance,
and everyone you love will watch as you throw away
everything you have.

And although you may feel free,
you're bound by the fortune that I seek,
and there'll be no difference
between the end of your life and fulfillment of my dreams.
Everything around me feels like home, and everything around me starts to grow.
I'll dig my roots down deep and they will never let me go.
They will never let me go.
... never let me go.
Track Name: Reveries
I can't tell you just how much
this has completely destroyed me.


Losing you
made the world so dark.
I look the sky.
The sky blue
color of the morning gives me chills.
Nothing can ever be the same
when everything I see
(I see)
reminds me of the
one cold winter I...
No cartographer in the world could ever fashion
a map that will lead me to your embrace
and make me whole again.

The reveries of all my dreams will dance
(whoa-oa-oh)
around my head.
With a beauty as timeless as yours,
(Oh, no!)
the universe has created you to be
(You were)
my everything.


You were my everything.
(Everything.)
You were my everything.
(Everything.)


Did you ever think that, for once in your life,
you could say that this is what you wanted?
Every night I lay my head to rest
this is all that I ever think about.
I can't tell you just how much
this has completely destroyed me.

Nights alone
drowned in regret.
Faces traced
they fail to imprint.
Lives lost
and born now anew,
bathed in the waters
of the Lazarus of you.
Turn it down, and fade it out.
I fail to catch my breath,
Grind it down, and fade it out.
This is all that I have left.


Did you ever think that, for once in your life,
you could say that this is what you wanted?
Track Name: Apollyon
I break bones
for a living.
I am the sultan of smooth words.
I am the cancer
you have been given.
I am the lies that you've heard.
I am your world.
OH.
I am your world.
I am your world.

I swear we'll make it out of this alive.
(Not giving up, we're not giving up.)
I can't lose everything I love.
I won't lose everything I love.
I know you'll be choking
on your words.
You'll have no quarter here.
Your race will be undone.

You built your kingdom on hate and lies.
I'll burn it down from the inside.
I'll take my stand,
(and I'll take mine.)
but I'll get mine.

Oh, child,
do you have it in you?
Can you save this world?
You better give it your best shot.
Make it your best shot.


Crushing your spirit.
I'll tear down these walls.
Storming my gates.
Your fortress will fall.
Abandon all hope.
I'm not giving up.
This battle is over.
It's written in blood.

I swear we'll make it out of this alive.
(It's every man for himself.)
I can't lose everything I love.
I won't lose everything I love.
I know you'll be choking
on your words.
You'll have no quarter here.
Your race will be undone.

You built your kingdom on hate and lies.
I'll burn it down from the inside.
I'll take my stand,
(and I'll take mine.)
but I'll get mine.

Oh, child,
do you have it in you?
Can you save this world?
When it's crashing down,
will you stand your ground?

You fool!
It's never progress if it leads to your demise.
Your finite outlook sounds the siren of your destiny.
Your fruitless war, evidence of your false innocence.
The men you'll lose will sacrifice your soul.

Sacrifice your soul.
Track Name: Chara (Threnody)
You were my only family.
(You were my only family)
Your divine eyes take the last of their pictures.
All the dreams we shared
turned to nightmares.
Scenes of a darker hue
loved you through and thorough.
I'll make Moon pay for the day he took you.

Not now!
(Away from me.)
When it couldn't get any worse you have gone,
and left here to bear this curse.
(Away from me.)
You are my hope,
you are my dreams.
I'm lost in you,
you're everything.
No words could ever express how much your love has meant to me.

I had never thought you to be the type of person
to do such horrible things to your own people.
All my life I have been searching for something more
And I can honestly say that this isn't what I wanted.
Her memories will be the only thing that I have
and that'll be enough
to keep me reaching for your neck.
Her memories will be the only thing I have
and that'll be enough
to keep me reaching for your neck.


Boy, why can't you see
that things were never about you and me?
Don't be so quick to think that
things are always the way that they seem.
Try to open your eyes.
(Don't be so blinded by your hate.)
What do I do? Where do I go from here?
All I've known and loved
has come undone.
(Change the stars and write your own fate.)
My anger carries me through the fog in front of me.
This I know:
I'll get my revenge on Moon.
...on Moon.
I'll get my revenge on Moon.
Track Name: Snow (Bonus Demo)
So hard to start another chapter when you haven't finished the first,
but the hand of fate shoved my heart aside and forced me to submit.
Instead of hiding my sadness, I will march forth.
I will search the infinite darkness and amass a lethal force.

The snow is making it hard to walk, and I just can't talk, or even move my tongue.
The frozen air settles in my lungs.
The ice that's hanging from all the trees just serves to remind me of how alone I am,
and as the blackness runs into my view, so does the life that I had with you,

but that's over now.
[You're not the only one who has to bear the weight of a crown]
Images and still frames of
sleepless nights, smiles, and the purest
love filled vows.
[You're not the only one who has to bear the weight of a crown]
I swear that I still can
feel the warmth of her hand.

A bleak winter hardens my resolve; I've found a purpose:
To spill blood to stain the melting frost, to wash my tears away.
I will greet the spring with an onslaught of scornful vengeance.
I will bury her killer in the frozen earth to suffer eternity alone.

Over now.
[You're not the only one who has to bear the weight of a crown]
Images and still frames of
sleepless nights, smiles, and the purest
love filled vows.
[You're not the only one who has to bear the weight of a crown]
I swear that I still can
feel the warmth of her hand.

I swear that I'd search the universe for you.
As timeless as stars, as perfect as night.
As pure as the morning for the rest of time.
Instead, I'll destroy that which you can't know.
The lost future, the shattered dreams.
I will avenge you, no matter the price.

And it's over now.
[You're not the only one who has to bear the weight of a crown]
Images and still frames of
sleepless nights, smiles, and the purest
love filled vows.
[You're not the only one who has to bear the weight of a crown]
I swear that I still can
feel the warmth of her hand.
