Chapter I

In lands far from the known there lies a story waiting to be told.
With this chance to look on face to face with the one who holds the truth, would you stand up with your fellow man against the god-like machines?

Go forth, do your worst, put your worth, put all of your desires on the pyre and light the fire.
Is this not the moment you saw in your deepest, darkest dream?
To stand as one against the odds, to stand and fight against the gods?

They will send armies of men to lay down their lives for the opportunity.
Against the odds it's hard not to feel as though we're stuck beneath the heel.

So rise.
Put your pride on the line, twist the knife to take the lives of the ones who stand between that which I know you seek.
If the ones poised upon their thrones claim to know my plan, let them descend.

Let the hordes of evil beasts try to smash down our dynasty.
All of the Earth's good men will stand at my command.
March forth to take the heads of men, women, children.
They will march to end the dark.

Against the threat of obscurity we must, we will rise.

No longer shall we feel beneath the heel.
So if they rose up from their thrones in lands far from the known, would you rise? Would you fight? Or would you lay down to the side?

Chapter II

It's time, pull anchors! Cast away!
Can't wait, not even one more day!
“You'll be alright, you'll be just fine.”
The loudest voices in your mind.

It seems to be blocking my instincts.
Optimistic screams blur out reality.
Toxic environment to blame, or overindulged brain in decay?
Self medicated escape from this plane.

Hyperspace: ACTIVATE
Take me far from this place.
Wandering spirit can't find purpose.

It seems to be blocking my instincts.
Optimistic screams blur out reality.
Life fades into bright lit screens.

Toxic environment to blame?
I'd say overindulged brain in decay.

You'll be alright. You'll be just fine.
Calming thoughts late at night.
Track Name: Rum Gun Salute
Chapter III

Oh lord, boys and girls, let's gather up in this room!
We'd be down and ready to bring the funkin' doom.
Grab your beer, yeah your Hamms, put that can right up in your hand, let's go!

Rum Gun Salute! Rum Gun Salute! Rum Gun Salute!

Descend to the basement, where we take the rock and wreck it.
Grab your beer, yeah your bud, its time to mosh around this dungeon til the pigs shut us up, let's go!

Rum Gun Salute! Rum Gun Salute! Rum Gun Salute!

Load it up, yeah the gun, I know no matter what you say that its really what you want.
Drenched in liquor from head to boot, as we all pay our tribute with a Rum Gun Salute.
Track Name: Croc BBQ
Chapter IV

Gloomy days and darker nights; such a sight when you've seen it your whole life. Would you care, oh would you dare take a stroll with me down this trail to the place where tempers always rise?

It's hard to get it tasting right when you're staring down my side.
So I smile wide.
Take another sip from my vial.
It feels the same, but I know it'll never be that way.

Was this not the goal all along to just slip away, try and get away from this place?

Regurgitated garbage comes seeping from your mouth.
It dribbles down your front to infect all you touch.

Day after day it feels the same.
Constantly living in the daze.

Wasn't this the plan all along to slip away, try and get away from this awful place?
Perhaps the day will come.

Til then smile wide again, enjoy fading in the haze.

Gloomy days and darker nights; welcome sight. (if you turn the lens just right)
Track Name: Obsidian
Chapter V

Here we stand, yet again, balanced so delicate on the edge.
Between what we've always seen and that we once thought to know
Standing here, staring blind over the entire stretch of the world.
Gracelessly fade into the gray.

Wasted human being, wasted space within the world's memory.
The abyss beckons the calming vision to fit right in.
Leaves the body, leaves the mind eternally atrophied.
Said being, an undeniably pathetic scene.

Cathartic vision beam through the sky.
Perception altering clarity realized

Balanced so delicate on the edge between what you think and what really is.
Edge off the edge, fall smiling.
Edge off the edge, fall spiraling into lifeless abyss.
Track Name: Party Ghost
Chapter VI

Party Ghost is here, oh he's finally arrived.
Yeah, he's late, what did you expect? He clearly has no sense of time.
“Who'd I miss?” Who gives a shit. It's just another basement show.
“Where's the weed? I brought the boos!” Party Ghost ain't here to lose.

If you play that perfect lick, the Party Ghost'll start the pit.
So raise'em up and chug'em down, he'll drink you right into the ground.

From the grave, into this musty cave
the Party Ghost is here shotgunning all my beers.
He says he's here for fun, but he's doing all my drugs.
The definition of keeping the spirits high.

He’s that guy, every show, who ends up on the floor.
‘nother beer? Why not? Pass the bottle, take a shot!
He says he’s here for fun, but he’s breaking all my stuff.
No matter what he does, he's always fuckin' it up.

Go go go Party Ghost!
He probably shouldn't drink no mo'!
He says he's here to get down, looks more like he's clownin' around.
Who brought this guy? We really need to find his ride!

It's scary how much he drinks, poppin' tops til the final klink
Drank'em all, plus the rest, always drinks himself to death.
He's always havin' fun, makin' bros pay for his pizza.
Entity glowing white, bumpin' hard all through the night.

All the ladies look away, when he starts floatin' their way.
'cross the room you can smell all the ghastly stuff he's inhaled.
It may not be Halloween, but he's here to make a scene.
Vortex in the moshpit, bodies flying out of it.

Go go go Party Ghost!
He probably shouldn't drink no mo'!
He says he's here to get down, looks more like he's clownin' around.
Who brought this guy? We really need to find his ride!
Track Name: Between the Wasteland and the Sky
Chapter VII

In the sky, far away, lies a truth I know you seek.
Against the odds, through your loss, will you climb
to reach for all the things deep in your mind that you seek,
whatever awesome feat stands between you and the dream?

Marching through ruins, past palaces.
Foundation strong, but not the walls.
Build now with fury to break old ties.

Abandoned fortress hides the secret;
key to the future from that which was.

Glancing back, lost ideology sits on the horizon;
scattered, not wasted fragmentations of grand schemes.
They amalgamate. They manifest. They’re left to rot if not observed.

Cycle back once again to where it all began.

Abandoned fortress hides the secret;
key to the future from that which was.
Build now with fury; break through the lies.
Track Name: Chalice
Chapter VIII

Resting on burdened shoulders haunts the shadow of a dream.
Never able to see beyond the pale shade laid in front of me.
Constant questioning of the life laid out before me.

Lost in the images:
Floating vessels, meandering with no purpose, no direction;
a conditioned disregard for any but the self.

But who am I?
Lost soul screaming for fresh breath of life.

Final notion:
Thought may pervade reality.
Release mindset of futility.
Negate the thoughts unseen
as I emerge from deep sleep.

Staring straight into the face of humanity,
Stand free to make the claim:
Reign in the doom,
Shed ethereal light,
I’ll do whatever I decide.

The switch it will be swift, I know they’re not like me.
My world is not like theirs and I know it will never be.
Tomorrow will your sun shine to illuminate the darkness that enfolds the world today?
As we make our way through doubt and far beyond:
“I can forget, just let it sit, and live life as if a dream.”

Vision, don’t fade!
New dawn arise, revitalize: my will, my conviction, the strength to face the shadow before me.
Beyond the gate, I stand to face this evolution.
Conviction, this vision, delusion don’t fade.
