Track Name: Frost of the Night
I can see the coming of the night
Closing in from the starry reaches of the sky
Silver light shines on our crumbling land
Frost of the night
Collects in my hands

The seeds of our future lie dormant in rime
All that once was is now frozen by time
Trust in the nightmare to keep us content
Icebound dreams
Darkness descends

Wish for the life we had before
Now desert and bare rock our home

Darkness, don't leave me we've grown so warm
In the absence of the light I was born
Others have spoke to the dawn's shining glow
And black feathered wings of the new-morning crow

Skies of grey
I am awake
Light my way
Beyond, the stars and the moon
Back to broken shores
A winding path
Through fields of snow
Lost so long ago

Lost long ago
Travel by the light of the moon

Trial by fire the dead of the night
The reflection of the flames infects my sight
Others have suffered the frost's biting cold
Forever we toil yet never grow old

We are gone
I am awake
Light my path
Beyond, the stars and the moon
Back to broken shores
I've lost my way
It shouldn't be hard in the snow
But my trail disappeared long ago
Track Name: Erosion
Time wears away
Our shore erodes
Every day
So slight
As we count the stars
Lighting up the sky

Recollect our fear of death
To guide us safely to the edge and
Reconnect
The life inside with silver light
Sublunar dreams will map our minds
Non-living narrow-minded thoughts
Of gold and green, whirring machines,
Escape the growing pull of the tide
So slight

Now
Before our ride
Rust born of salt and mist
Time
We've lost the care and love for growing things
Corrosive tongues speak black and white
Electric signs cut through the night
Commit the crime
Of an open mind

To map our place and fate among the stars
We must find out who we really are
A lonely rock spinning round and round
Switch our thoughts
To bring about

Inferno
In this land of burning light
The land aflame
The sky ignites
And as the flame consumes us all
Even the stars will fall

To hold us down
And watch us drown
So far from the sun
The life inside
Sees all of this in black and white
The abomination

Arise and ascend to the sea of stars
The inferno blocks our sight
On the greener side, untouched by flame
And bathed in fatal light
On a silent line
The static speaks
To remind us of our crime
A body of black
Hidden from sight
Swallows all the light

To map our place in accordance with the stars
Explain and find out who we really are
A lonely rock spinning round and round
Switch our thoughts
To bring about

Inferno
In this land of burning light
The land aflame
The sky ignites
And as the flame consumes us all
Even the stars will fall
Track Name: Black and White
For ages we have watched this land degrading
The past preyed upon by falling stars
Guide me home
Everything is different now
The land we used to know
Has turned to ash

Lead me down
Past the trees
And sink my feet
Into the sand by the sea
Let me go
And drift away
Remembering what never was
In shades of grey

I am old
At least I feel it in my bones
I remember when we were young inside
And everything was black and white
As the punishment for our crimes

Between the permafrost and sky
Cold, forever dark
Ages ago we were confined
We are the diseased

In fields of frost I wander ever slower
If there is someone out there then please
Send a sign
From the cliffs I see a coming storm
Grey clouds collect and descend in time

Lead me down
To the waves
Past the cliffs along the shores
To the cave
Light the torch
And step inside
Now as one we
Cross this great divide

I am old
At least I feel it in my bones
I remember when we were young inside
And everything was black and white
The abomination
Between the permafrost and sky
Cold, forever dark
Ages ago we were confined
We are the diseased
Track Name: Shattered Shores I: Timeless Night
The storm outside
Gives us all another sleepless night
I hear the thunder coming
To drown away
All my thoughts and dreams
A life in decay

The clouds up high
Made of black, they seem to choke the sky
I see the dawn is coming
Lose your soul to the winds of old
And the burning cold

Surrender
It's all over you
You know it's true
Salvation
Cannot save us all
In time

Existence in timeless night
Breaks me down
A disconnected mind in a world of ash
And flame
But now there is another way
Carry these long broken wings to resting
Far from the shattered shores
Of time

Death drives the engines of life
Forever lost to the tide
And as the flames consume us all
Even the stars will fall

Are we here to watch the waves as they pass
To count away another day our lives on a track
Now we walk on shattered shores
Hoping, searching for something more
Ever closer to the edge

Surrender
It's all over you
You know it's true
Salvation
Cannot save us all
What's to become of me

Imagine life with light
Life beyond the night
Take solace in the hope
We get out alive
The lie
The storm has brought the rain
But the ash still remains
For we are the damned
Forever lost
In time
Upon these broken shores

Death drives the engines of life
Forever lost to the tide
And as the flames consume us all
Even the stars will fall

Even the stars will fall
I hear the winter's call
Track Name: Summersong
The frost
Frozen plains of despair
Forever lost
The air
Old as we wander
Tragic
Through the glare

So this is how my story ends
Here in the twilight of our time
With the hope
The sun will rise
Lifting the fog clearing the sky
Before night

I am the one who searches for life
In the dark regions of night
Blood, snow, and ice


In the vast and empty expanse
The sun will rise
Into the night

Falling alone
Through the darkness and the light
Tragedy guides me
As I fall
Into the nightmares
Once a comfort
During sleep
A bittersweet melody divide
I'll see you in memory's eyes
Before I return to the tide

Sing a new summersong
And make it last
Before we're gone
Riding forever through the grey
Lost forever in time

The storm will bring the rain
Bit by bit
Melting the snow away
The winds of old
Sweeping air
Carry the scent of the spring
Across plains of despair
Track Name: Starfall
Please provide the spark a ray of guiding light
I cannot find the path in endless night

The map I held decays
We're all infected
Despair
Growing, bending, breaking down
The sky

The light will blind us all
Seek the shade of somewhere else
Somewhere new
A cover light cannot get through
We thought it was the time
To make our way out from the dark
The steepest climb

We are all one
Under the shining sun
Cold and dark grip our minds
Until the ending of night
And a sign of its passing
We go
Back home
Past the dying stars
Light is gone til our eyes
Glimpse the ending of night
And our hope falls crashing

Please remind me there are brighter days ahead
I need to rewrite this bitter end
The blood is leaving these shattered hands
The snow has become
The red of the sun

The stars are falling down
Streaming through the endless night
One more time
Now we breathe our final sigh
In shadows we reside
Traitors of the darkened sky
A million suns will die
Track Name: Shattered Shores II: A New Beginning
Deep inside the heart of the frozen night
And in the midst of frost bound waves
We make our home

Tearing away
Breaking apart another hopeless day
Fields of grey in our eyes
Vision set in black and white

From the cliffs I see a coming storm
Grey clouds collect and descend in time
In accordance with the wearing of the waves
Rewrite this land and begin again

Existence in timeless night
Breaks me down
A disconnected mind in a world of ash
And flame
But now there is another way
Carry these long broken wings to resting
Far from the shattered shores
Of time

Are we here to watch the waves as they pass
To count away another day
Our lives on a track
Reconnect with something more
Dismiss despair and explore
Ever closer to the edge

Now all the hate inside comes rushing out
Forever alone on the journey home
A broken life pieced together once again
Lifting me up, from out of this endless hell

Paint the sky with flame
And burn this life away
A new beginning
Borne from the past's remains
Come night
The storm will bring the rain
To wash all the ash away
From chaos and an eternal night
Comes life

Before the end we see
This is not what we believe
Track Name: Into the Chasm
We have survived all on our own
With none in our way
I have seen many winters
Before this day

Wide
The Earth opens below
Watch as it falls
Rape the land, tear it away
Payment reclaimed on this day

Hills rise and steppes they shift
Trembling the Earth at our feet
Into the chasm we fall
Downwards end our deceit
Mountains they crumble below
Oceans wash them away
Into the chasm we fall
Downwards into the grey

This our downfall
And so it has passed
With
