fathead dog Metal at it's purest! So raw, but yet refined at the same time! If you must insist on a sub-genre tag, I would say the music is more "metalcore", than anything else. A very exhilarating bandcamp release and a definite must buy for any metal head.

Track Name: Launch Initiate
Whatever you come up with ;)
Track Name: Rogue
Rogue, outcast
Call me what you will
Desolate, Derelict
Wandering globe of ice and dust
Abandoned, hopeless
Forced to wander time and space
Abandoned, hopeless

A lonely soul
Left on... left on it's own
No set... no set course
Only... gravity!

A parent star left without it's child
A lost child left to fend for itself (to fend for itself)
The frigid waste
Of galactic territory
A lonely endeavor (endeavor)
To find a new home

Closing in... closer to...
Closer to oblivion
Everything... everything stays eternal
Nothing... nothing stays the same

A parent star left without it's child
A lost child left to fend for itself (to fend for itself)
The frigid waste
Of galactic territory
A lonely endeavor (endeavor)
To find a new home

The frigid waste
Of galactic territory
A lonely endeavor
To find a new home

Track Name: Dreamer's End
Crack your mind
You won't believe
What you will find inside
A desperate soul
Longing to break away
From it's own god damn humanity

We will leave this human shell
If only for a while
To escape from humanity's judging smile (escape from)
In this fantasy
We are dreaming
But in reality (reality)
Our potential is only sleeping

Crack your mind
You won't believe
What you will find inside
A desperate soul
Longing to be so much more
Than it ever fucking was before

We will leave this human shell
If only for a while
To escape from humanity's judging smile (escape from)
In this fantasy
We are dreaming
But in reality (reality)
Our potential is only sleeping

When you're left
Broken and kneeling
In front of of an empty grave
Please tell me, who will you turn to
And ask the question, "will I be saved?"

When you're left
Broken and kneeling
In front of of an empty grave
Please tell me, who will you turn to
And ask the question, "will I be saved?"

When you're left
Broken and kneeling
Which deity
Would you find appealing

In this fantasy
We are dreaming
But in reality
Our potential is only sleeping

We've got to wake them up

Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

And realise
Our potential is only sleeping
Track Name: Your Faith Suffocates
A cold and silent whisper
Shuddered up my spine
The things it said festered
As it's prisoner was my mind

So further we go
To places unknown
The eye of your mind
Will not stay closed
What you will find
It's only a show
The hole in your head
You're left all alone

Why does your faith suffocate me
The lies, drip through your teeth
And through the pain of the many
You'll bring us all to our knees

The spinner weaves it's webs
Of promises un-kept
While the threads of our hearts are carefully
Undone at the hem

So further we go
To places unknown
The eye of your mind
Will not stay closed
What you will find
It's only a show
The hole in your head
You're left all alone

You're left all alone

I think you should
Hold your tongue
Stitch your mouth
It's all been done

Remember that
There's no submissions for
Grace

Oh my god

Why does your faith suffocate me
The lies, drip through your teeth
And through the pain of the many
You'll bring us all to our knees

You'll bring this world to it's knees
Track Name: Zero Point Energy
Yeah!

Hold your ground
This is where we make our stand
Hold your ground
Witness the resolve of man
Hold your ground
We will embrace the flood
Hold your ground
Our banners drenched in blood

Hold your ground
Hold your ground

Weighted, my soul is fated by
Invaders, here to control our kind
Gripping, at any shred of hope
Slipping, when fears start to choke
Take cover, they bring down city lights
Kiss lover, it may be the last time

Fated, my mind is weighted by
Wasted, how have I spent my life?
Fleeting, a race once so proud
Creeping, through darkened alleys now
Discover, a tech to bring us light
From Under, we destroy from inside

Hold your ground
We will embrace the flood
Hold your ground
Our banners drenched in blood

Hold your ground
Hold your ground

Gated, a fence to keep inside
Our nature, our instincts to survive
Sedation, done by those in veils
Our nation, asleep on a bed of nails
Wake us, please from this nightmare
Resistance, is stirring in the air

Created, a mind control device
In secret, a chance to free our minds
Bracing, break chains from our wrists
Pacing, the moment to resist
From cover, we attack at first light
Brothers, today we stand and fight

The sky cracks open
Bodies falling
Limp and lifeless
Laid around us
Judgement
Is finally at hand
Let he who wins the final battle
Decide the fate of man

Hold your ground
This is where we make our stand
Hold your ground
Witness the resolve of man

Hold your ground
We will embrace the flood
Hold your ground
Our banners drenched in blood

Blood!

BLOOD!

Hold your ground
Hold your ground
Track Name: Something Sick
I dreamed a dream
But now that dream
Is gone from me (gone from me)
I dreamed a dream
But now that dream
Is taken from me (taken from me)

I have nothing left
But apathy
You took all away
From me
Blinded within light
Voiceless within a scream

Show your face, the real one
Show your face, it's just begun
Show yourself
Not who you pretend to be

I dreamed a dream
But now that dream
Is gone from me (gone from me)
I dreamed a dream
But now that dream
Is taken from me (taken from me)

I dreamed a dream
I dreamed a dream

There will be no sunrise
Behind these blinded eyes
Left in darkness
I feel nothing
Blinded within light
Voiceless within a scream

Show your face, the real one
Show your face, it's just begun
Show yourself, who you really are
Show yourself
Show yourself
Not who you pretend to be

I dreamed a dream
But now that dream
Is gone from me (gone from me)
I dreamed a dream
But now that dream
Is taken from me (taken from me)

I
I dreamed a dream
I dreamed a dream

You took everything from me
I have nothing but apathy

I dreamed a dream...
And now it's gone
Something sick
Track Name: Live by the Sword
Torn, between two worlds
A dreaded fear of paths colliding
Fighting, for what you believe in
Fighting, because you were told

Live by the sword
Or die by the bullet
The choice isn't always up to you
Whatever happened to dying with honour?
They take aim and run you through

It's amazing how things have changed
But the story stays the same (stays the same)
Ancient kings conquer worlds
Politicians play their games (play their games)
As long as there is man on Earth
There will always be war (always be war)
The only thing that ever changes
Is what we're fighting for (fighting for)

We walk, on the ashes
Of conflicts unresolved
We are the product, left and forgotten
Our way of life, broken and rotten

Live by the sword
Or die by the bullet
The choice isn't always up to you
Whatever happened to dying with honour?
They take aim and run you through

It's amazing how things have changed
But the story stays the same (stays the same)
Ancient kings conquer worlds
Politicians play their games (play their games)
As long as there is man on Earth
There will always be war (always be war)
The only thing that ever changes
Is what we're fighting for (fighting for)

Live by the sword
Or die
By the bullet

Live by the sword or die by the bullet
Live by the sword or die by the bullet
Live by the sword

Live by the sword or die by the bullet
Live by the sword or die by the bullet
Live by the sword

Or die
