Track Name: From Death I Come (Introduction)
Fiends swarm upon thee

Change this souls heart

Make him be the gatherer

And tormentor of souls

Take away his vision

Make him see what you see

Change him forever

Be the Ferryman’s Eyes
Track Name: The Shadows Come For Me
The Shadows Come For Me

Do you know what death feels like?
I think I am unsure
This place it seems unknown to myself
It’s a clouded place

What are these terrible screams I hear?
Corrupted voices of tyranny
Something wraps from underneath me
From this sea of blood

Shadows consume my heart of gold
Turning and twisting inside of me
Ripping up my skin and bones
Am I a reaper no just a ferryman

The carrier of dead souls
A tormentor of the old
I replenish thou of death
In the waters just below

My boat always haunts me
As the shadows lie and wait
Keepers of the true darkness
Of hearts as thou been staked

All the dead shall lay on my boat
Bagged in white sacks
The shadows choose their fates
As I reach their other sides

If a whisper comes before me
Face down into the waves
This is where the dead souls go
Till they are nothing or now gone

Shadows run around my soul
Touching and tweaking inside of me
Breaking up my mind and bones
Am I a reaper no just a ferryman

The carrier of dead souls
A tormentor of the old
I replenish thou of death
In the waters just below

My boat always haunts me
As the shadows lie and wait
Keepers of the true darkness
Of hearts as thou been staked
Track Name: The End
The End

I am no demon
But I was born straight from hell

I am no wicked one
But I have killed just as well

These rivers of flame are my home laid before me
Controlled by the fire within my empty eyes

Messenger
Carrier
Soul chaser
Casting their bodies a side

Retriever
Believer
Deceiver
The ferry mans knows his prize

Mist maker
World shaker
Bone breaker
Taking the dead for a ride

Shadowed being
Not foreseeing
Cloaked feeling
Which of you souls want a life

I am no traveller
But a wonderer from far and wide

I am no punisher
But full of selfish lies

I am no Deity
If I was I’d fight

I am no Majesty
But I’ve destroyed human life’s

These rivers of flame are my home laid before me
Controlled by the fire within my empty eyes

Messenger
Carrier
Soul chaser
Casting their bodies a side

Retriever
Believer
Deceiver
The ferry mans knows his prize

Mist maker
World shaker
Bone breaker
Taking the dead for a ride

Shadowed being
Not foreseeing
Cloaked feeling
Which of you souls want a life

I am no watcher
But the carrier of the souls

I am no guidance
But I am one to be told

These rivers of flame are my home laid before me
Controlled by the fire within my empty eyes

Messenger
Carrier
Soul chaser
Casting their bodies a side

Retriever
Believer
Deceiver
The ferry mans knows his prize

Mist maker
World shaker
Bone breaker
Taking the dead for a ride

Shadowed being
Not foreseeing
Cloaked feeling
Which of you souls want a life
Track Name: Fallen
Fallen

An angel has fallen once again
In my secret place

What’s happened here?
It’s sad to know
Is this a fairy tale?

Alone they must have been
Dying in this winter’s edge
Like all the others

An angel has fallen once again
In my secret place
Dying in my arms
Your soul remains as you drift away

Why does another fall
It’s not right at all
They don’t deserve this

It’s cruel all I do
Is watching the dying
Over and over again

An angel has fallen once again
In my secret place
Dying in my arms
Your soul remains as you drift away
Track Name: Game Of Insanity
Game Of Insanity

I saw you there on the horizon
Staring at me confused by hate
Judgement is yours take me there
I’m calling for you my darkest layer

Cut me in two, feel my pain
The ferryman’s insanity awaits his game
Words in my mind (closing the gate)
Corrupted at last (your mine for heavens sake)

Roll the demonic dice
(Go on)
Play the game of insanity

Pay with your worthless life
(Go on)
Betting on with Blasphemy

Roll the demonic dice
(Go on)
Play the game of insanity

Pay with your worthless life
(Go on)
Shadowed in your wildest dreams

Cursed by the dawn that lays beside me
With wicked hands I’d drawn the line
I’m a captured soul I need to stay alive
Nothing here is good I’m full of crimes

Take me to hell, I don’t belong
Wish me fair well, sing me a song
Drown me in the river, see my blood
Cast me a side; tear out my lies

Roll the demonic dice
(Go on)
Play the game of insanity

Pay with your worthless life
(Go on)
Betting on with Blasphemy

Roll the demonic dice
(Go on)
Play the game of insanity

Pay with your worthless life
(Go on)
Shadowed in your wildest dreams
Track Name: You'll Find Your Way Out Of This Darkness
You’ll Find Your Way Out Of This Darkness

Verse 1
These waters are mindless
Cursed by the dead
Fallen ones
Buried and angered

Blood sways into the sea
Dripping off his boat
Toxicating the beast
Making me provoked

Bridge
Madness grabs him by the hand
Sending him to his own hell
Tearing him apart,
Crushing his worthless soul.

Chorus
You’ll find your way out of this darkness
Trapped beneath the bloody sea
With memories all but forgotten.

You’ll find your way out of this darkness

Solo

Verse 2
Drowning in the deep
Your dead already
I will let go
All your will take my soul away

He's freed at last to work
Make a serpent as a friend
Feed me the dead
For those who disobey

Bridge
Madness grabs bodies by the hand
Sending them to their own hell
Tearing them apart,
Crushing their very worthless soul

Madness grabs bodies by the hand
Tormenting and feeding
Off their energies, their most precious desires

Chorus
You’ll find your way out of this darkness
Trapped above this bloody sea
With memories all but forgotten.

You’ll find your way out of this darkness
Track Name: Foresee Me And Dream
Foresee Me And Dream

No Distant memories or hope to see the world
I have been lonely for too long
People pass me in spirit forever

I can’t remember when last alive
I am lost here in this pit from hell
Don’t talk to me or stare at me just look away your dead

Found in the light
Spirits going cold

Whisperer of madness
Trying to take your soul away

Neither shall pass by me
Unless you’re dead unless in red

The man in black has seen me, I can not look away
I feel a chill down my spine
He wants me for something evil

Darkness grabs me by the hand
Knowing who that I am
Don’t touch me or enter me or I’ll begin to wake

Found in the light
Spirits going cold

Whisperer of madness
Trying to take your soul away

Neither shall pass by me
Unless you’re dead unless in red

I have awoken
Is this still a dream?
I feel empty
What does this mean?

Through the eyes of the ferry man
I see my hands of shadows
This can’t be right I don’t understand
How I am here in this world

Found in the light
Spirits going cold

Whisperer of madness
Trying to take your soul away

Neither shall pass by me
Unless you’re dead unless in red

I wake from darkness
In a body unknown to me
Back on earth
Corruption is all I see
Flashing mirrors
I have be taken to the never land
Where are my bones?
Skin and flesh it appears to be
Track Name: Beyond The Severed Gate (Bonus Track)
Beyond The Severed Gate

I’ll tell you
A story
About ferryman
That lied

A deceiver
Not a dreamer
But a soul
Full of cry’s

His hatred
Was of rage
Desperate
To break free

Alone too long
Going mad
Till this day
He’d been released

Souls come on gather round
Listen to this dreadful tale
It’s one for memories
A learning curve to insanity

Beyond the severed gate
I lie here passing knowledge to
The weak.

I hear the cries
Of the universe twisting and turning
Alongside darkness.

After death
Laid a ferryman
Cursed and battered
By the shadows

For years
Gathering the dead
Rowing endlessly
He would wait

A time rose
Another entered
His world
His rules to chance

Switching places
With this newcomer
Blessed and
Back into reality

Remember these stories well
You are the universes mind
When we am gone you are there
To gather the ways of life.

Beyond the severed gate
I lie here passing knowledge to
The weak.

I hear the cries
Of the universe twisting and turning
Alongside darkness.
