Track Name: Bearded and Bizarre
Union of the cunning souls
A gathering of dark mysteries
Keepers of the black scrolls
Green wizard strolls through time and history

Sleight of hand
Full moon song
Cosmic arcane man
Hail the fallen star

Riding backwards on a goat
All roads lead to the Sabbath
Oarsmen row the horned boat
Green wizard’s reefer madness

Twisting mass
Blackhole laws
Cosmic curse
Wizard Bizarre

Some came running
The others crawled
Two stars collide
Invoke the Bizarre
Wizard’s eye
Sets seeds afire
Smoke laden space
Invoke the Bizarre

Twisting mass
Blackhole laws
Cosmic curse
We are bizarre

Nefarious grace
Lunar phase
Wizard displaced

Gaseous embrace
Lunar daze
Wizard in pain

They came running
And they crawled
Two stars collide
Invoke the Bizarre
Wizard’s eye
Sets bongs afire
Smoke laden space
Invoke the Bizarre
Track Name: Bury Me in NOLA
There’s a place where sickness winds
From early hours when the fog subsides
Sons of the Crooked Cross
Wage a war at all costs

Beating demons in their lair
Sonic murmurs of despair
Turning gold into dust
Songs of creation bloody rust
Do not walk a single file
Burning order with chaotic pride
Sons of the Crooked Cross
Wage a war at all costs

Beer bong justice
Gnarly eyes
Tombstones over land suffice
Fearless madmen put to test
Find me a grave where I can rest

Needle pile over broken glass
Moonshine Mary
Stained class
Track Name: Sleeping Pool
Look around the Mirrorland
Possibilities seem offhand
Somewhere in the depths of minds
The universal paradox declines
Reaching for the endless goal
Robots walk the hyperbole
Union of mechanic wholes
Creates the Sleeper
The men with no soul

Sleeping Pool
The waking is here
Sleeping Pool
The dead lay clear

Crying through space and time
He grows to be one of a kind
Finds his way into your brain
Within you lives the man insane
Open all the doors right now
See the colours begin to wow
Creator dies another lives
Oh Sleepers walk me amongst the mist

The smokestack is spitting black
The grease slips from his curls
Mammoth won’t forget his cage
The Clown wears a frown on his face
All aboard the whiskey train
Where you have gone
You have gone insane
Where you have gone it’s what you’re looking at

Sleeping Pool
The waking is here
Sleeping Pool
The dead lay clear
Track Name: Where There's Smoke (There is a Pyre)
Those made from technology
Stake claim to humanity
Of cyborgs and their queens
The meek lay slaughtered in between

Cordite fog it blinds their eyes
One at a time none survive
Chaos overdrive
Fuelled by lies the men they die

Pyres burn light up the night
Cried drown daylight midnight
Pyres dot their distant lands
The despots rule over the Man

Born of dirt an Earth like man
Strong as the hills he scans the land
Justice on his left, an arm on his right
All (of) them rulers cower in fright

Pyres burn light up the night
The despots slowly vapourise
Pyres dot their distant lands
Turned to dust by earthen Man

The wind spreads his word around now
Silent masses take to his cause
The wind spreads his word around now
Greedy generals dead for a cause
The wind spreads his word around now
We are the ones who are lighting the fire
The wind spreads his word around now
We are the ones who are stroking your pyre

The wind spreads his word around now
Earthen man is dead for no cause
Still spinning in this void now
Earthen man is dead for no cause
The wind spreads his word around now
They are the ones who are lighting the fire
The wind spreads his word around now
They are the ones who are stroking your pyre
Track Name: Heathen
Heathen
Your occult hand o’er my gloom
Pagan
Oh how I have longed
Heathen
Let’s dance again amongst the wolves
Demon
Fill me with whispers of doom

I dream of your embrace
Profane songs we made
I’d shunned light that day
Free me from my grave
Track Name: The Grand Alignment
Centuries under a dying Sun
Pray for the spiral dance
Dreaded winter comes your way
Dead is the fragrant air of May
Stars align with grace

Three five pointed stars align
Bleeding iron from the veins of time
Ancient moon bogs come alive
Nightmares swirl in your mind
Rulers of the Elder Time
Tentacles grip your mundane life
Lurking fear from remote lands
In perfect chaos they ride

The embers of life they fade
As the stars they align with grace

Anti-life creatures of moonlit groves
Waltz in to the dark
Wormholes in their crystal ball
Speak of rotting winds and sinister lies
(The) Esoteric Order of Elder Time
Draw an unholy line
And the stars they align
Upon the unholy line
And the stars they align

The embers of life they fade
As the stars they align with grace

Fear the death curse from the stars
For they have aligned in eons past
Naked and twisted your life will end
Paving the way for the Ancient

From a time where Death has died
And a place where drought brings joy
Comes a hate that brings forth life
Creatures strange with loathsome eyes
Killing darkness, one you’ve never seen
A rotting life, one you’d rather live
And the stars they align
Upon the unholy line

Fear the death curse from the stars
For they have aligned in eons past
Naked and twisted your life will end
Paving the way for the Ancient

Blind mountains they rise
Monoliths stand proud and tall
Crawling chaos you’re the master
Obey the unknown one

Look to the sky
It burns grey
Look to the sky
