Deceived by the one I love Clothed in the centaur's stain The blood of the misleader Is corrupting my veins For one side is immortal The other cannot die Living in endless pain I must go to the sky Chorus: Spirit Division The living dead Spirit Division Humanity shed The sun is shining high Below is my shadow Stacking the piles of wood He knows where we must go And so I go to the top To take my final sleep Flames lit on the foundation To my body they leap Chorus Smoke rises in the air From where I have been laid One side under the earth To join the other shades The other flies above As one of the divine Living as one of the gods This mortal life behind Chorus

Leeches in my ear Are hungry for words Attached to my face They're howling unheard Others share this fate Or were supposed to be They all stand watching Leeches swallow me Nightmares come and go Dreading the shrill cry Hanging by my feet Bones only left dry Sometimes I'm released To futilely predict When they will return Madness now constricts Bridge: The others now stand watching me die Babbling words that they deny Shame he couldn't handle this task Leeches still howling, see who'll ask I have given up Bothering to fight Or passing it on None will take my plight Telling what I hear Told to just give in Here you'll always be Now it's back again

Fed up drinking Alone in my bed Muzzled and screaming Waking the dead Crooked smiling Bottles of booze Cigarette dreaming Singing the blues Burn out midnight Aimless with thought Pay for your vices And hang on your cross Pleading for traces Of innocence lost Denying the faces Believe in the cost Bridge: Sweet spirits drag me down Beneath the ground Sweet spirits drag me down Funeral mound Sweet spirits bring me down Lost but not found Sweet spirits drag me down Beneath the ground Face down in silent Years of remorse Veins thick with sewage Running its course Surviving is lying Through bloodletting teeth Ignorance seeping Venereal belief

Tell me where you've been Tell me where you go Tell me about the scars That you refuse to show I've seen you shed your skin Putting on the pounds Slipping through the bars Going through the rounds Chorus: Oh, can you tell me girl Why are you treating me this way Oh, can you tell me girl Why do I even stay Tell me about the sin The rivers leaves and snow Chasing all the stars The hookers and the blow Do you think you'll win Wherever you're bound Step in the wrong car You'll find you've been found Chorus You know what you're in No longer in tow It seems so bizarre To reap what you sow The next of your kin Will not make a sound Guided by Mars You're pulled into the ground Chorus

Friends will always be there I question what he said For though they may still care All mine are so widespread And contrary to his belief Even true friends come and go There's no room for relief In the garden fate may grow, yeah Nothing lasts forever At least that's what I've learned But in this great endeavor Even true friends may return But more often they will not At least not in our form They come in lessons taught As you face another swarm, yeah Bridge: Once again I'm climbing back Into the Cloud of Souls Wondering just what I lack That makes me half of whole I remember I once vowed To stop being so cold But when I was in the Cloud Forgot what I had told Friends are here to stay It's you that comes and goes There's no room left to say Just when the wind will blow But one day you will be found I won't call off the chase Maybe one more time around I'll find what I misplaced, yeah

You are only visible When you're in someone's way Oh, believe what you are told Every dog will have its day No angel will ever appear When you want out of the role Not even the Devil is here Wanting to take your soul Answer questions they may ask With a calm "everything's fine" It is a comfortable mask And nobody's fault but mine Though the words bring alibis And some may be smiled away But a look envelopes the eyes Begging them to please stay Though my angel won't appear I still have one friend He's the one who keeps me here When it seems I cannot mend Apathy his spoken name And the one that I must call Though he is the one who'll claim Of putting up my wall Outro: Count no man happy til he's dead When he is free of pain at least Up the Mountain of Lies you tread Oh, see how they fall so fast

Soaring through the Red Sky Watching the clouds pass by Gunfire I might die Friends drop bombs they don't ask why Foes scream and cry as they fall It'll be the fate of us all I don't want the Reaper's call Spare me an order too tall Fire and death rage below Piles of bodies friend and foe What is this I do not know Man's wickedness is quite a show
8.
Kvasir's blood runs down my throat And I have caught on to a tune The drink I took from the Sisters' well Solved not the secret of the runes Commandments that I have displayed Were not words of my own Forged by the gods in their glory And I was sent to get the stones Can you believe in a religion That's disgraced by its own god Can you still be proud of your home After seeing life abroad Can you still be a leader If no one will follow you Take a turn and blaze a trail And hope the flames won't swallow you Chorus: Disillusioned by the world I see Another way there has to be All that matters within your time Is what you manage to leave behind Bridge: How do I be true to myself If I don't know who I am Only fools have no doubts Every sheep was a lamb How do I true to myself If I don't know what I am Only fools have no doubts Every sheep was once a lamb So many things that I could do So why only just pick one And when they come into conflict What shall I keep what shall I shun What if everyone you knew Turned out to be lying to you Do you really know what they're thinking And if their words are really true Chorus

about

"What ultimately unites the material is the strong sense of purpose and care in the vocal arrangements."
-The Obelisk

"Heavy on the blues, there is a lot of melodic singing to enjoy with just the right amount of psychedelic doom, stopping just short of sounding occult."
-Doomed and Stoned

"Heavy, doomy, grungy and bluesy while teetering a bit on the sludgy side"
-The Evil Engineer
