Book of Bane

Conflict

Rage of Angels

Thunder cracks and lightning flashes
Revealing blood soaked wings
Swords on shields and spears and daggers
Broken steel sings
Pillars of heaven fall around them
As their conflict cracks the sky
Brother betrays brother
Yet none of them can die
The father of creation
Has turned his eyes away
Nothing left but battle cries
They struggle to this day
Rage of Angels Falling
Eternal clash of steel
War will rage forever
Reality shatters, they’re broken and battered again
Streets of gold run red
Their challenge is war for eternity
Their war is one of pride
As the universe crumbles around them
Blinding light and blades of fire
What was once will be, broken and changed
Father of creation
Has turned his eyes away
Nothing left but battle cries
They struggle to this day
Rage of Angels Falling
Eternal clash of steel
War will rage forever
Reality shatters, they’re battered and broken
A trumpet sounds, broken wings burn
Glory and fury unite, battle lines are drawn
Can they ever know, would they ever care
The consequences, the aftermath
Whoa

The Heretic

On wings of gold
Came Oblivion
Sister and brother battle each other
And reality lay broken beneath their own feet
Bright as the sun
Wings dipped in the blood of his brothers
His divisions created
Battle for the sake of battle,
Rage born of indifference
You know you stand alone said The Heretic
We know you’re seeking peace when all you see is war
Don’t be a fool, you know you are alone
If you can’t join us with sword, you’ll be cast away
Do we not bear blades of fire?
Bear blades of fire
Why do we not war and shape eternity?
Peace is the providence for the weak
The strong make war because they can
The warrior is always the victor
When war is the only goal
Our only goal,
My only goal
The lust for conflict is strong for all the legions
The Heretic was not alone
Yet one stood opposed
The one called the Surveyor
There’s no turning back this conflict last forever
Darkness sits upon the throne
Heed the call of war!
Steadfast is the war cry!
Locked, Chained
Time travels beyond emptiness
Taunting the whispers of the forgotten,
Feels like the surface of loneliness
Pride Fuels the endless armageddon
Rest assured it’s destiny
This paradigm shift burns evermore
Through the gates war marches on
War marches on

The Grand Surveyor

No whisper of wind, a world long dead
The dust awaits a miracle
A silent vision under skies of red
His eyes have seen a thousand worlds
His hands can bring the waters,
His touch can crack the sky
He is the Grand Surveyor
Touch down upon the mountain, this place is known to him
The silence of centuries lifts as genesis begins
He stands above the sands, and moves in his own time
His touch brings the waters, and the song of life begins to chime.
Begins to chime
And light begins to shine
Destiny is mine
He stands upon the plain for countless centuries
It passes for him like flames in the wind.
His passion to restore, what his brothers have undone.
Harmony shattered by many, will be restored by just one.
His hands can bring the waters, his touch can crack the sky
He is the Grand Surveyor, with his watchful eye
He stands above the sands, and moves in his own time
His touch brings the waters, and the song of life begins to chime.
Begins to chime
And light begins to shine
Destiny is mine
Millennia pass and the the rivers flow
Oceans rise, grasses grow
A spark of life springs from the embers,
As he’s done before
Millennia pass and the the rivers flow
Oceans rise, grasses grow
At last he ascends to the blackness
His chore is never done

Edge of Forever

The icy silence can seem eternal
To those who have never known eternity
This void, this existence
An accident of fate yet known only to me
Light and shadow, stretching on and on
Time and space deep and cold
Their war will last forever
Yet here, their conflict hides its face
Standing at the Edge of Forever
Solitude in the black
A welcome respite from fire and steel
Listening at the Edge of Forever
Silence echoes with memories
Of the war machine’s perpetual wheels
Staring at the Edge of Forever
Oceans of blackness, broken by sparks
Remnants of a conflict, born of pride
Standing at the Edge of Forever…
While brothers raged, and wings bled
I left and journeyed into the dark divide.
This world is the shore of the cosmos
We’re all made of stars
This is the way for the cosmos to show itself
Standing at the edge
Everywhere to go
The ways have been opened
With nowhere to be
Diamonds shining on the curtain of night
Time is ticking forward
These worlds, gliding through a moment in time
With no deadline to keep
A tempest in a teapot
The balance of dark and light
Days are always shallow
I will guide this creation
I will watch it grow
The years are always deep
Bringing life to nothingness and giving water to the fields
Emotionally translucent
My eyes have witnessed this beginning
And I’ll be here when it ends
An emotionally steep
Aching pain from an ancient wound
Here in oblivion heals
Standing on the edge of forever

Darkened With Shadows

The gentle sun sat to the west
The glow of setting set minds to rest
A man now waits with greed
He hides outside, behind the trees
Inside he creeps the floor it speaks
Of silence no more of tiptoes and creeks
The lights now dim the man with grin
His eyes are set he places his bet
Darkened with shadows again
Confused by the mystery chasing within
Creatively breaking the soul
Hiding truth so no one else will know
He shouts at the man in his way
It’s a fight when he rolls up his sleeves
The man in the door takes him down
With a bright glowing moon, it was all over soon
Lifted up he’s now shown away
To the places he had been
Words spoken simple and plain
Showing him the cause of his pain
Darkened with shadows again
Confused by the mystery chasing within
Creatively breaking the soul
Hiding truth so no one else will know
Knowing now he’d been taken
For draining life from the living
Surprised by his ending today
On the floor where his body now lay
Darkened with shadows again
Confused by the mystery chasing within
Creatively breaking the soul
Hiding truth so no one else will be
Darkened with shadows again
Confused by the mystery chasing within
Creatively breaking the soul
Hiding truth so no one else will know

Underneath the Stone

They’ve taken me to sit and dwell
On how they say I killed that night
yet my innocence they won’t recognize
There’s no way I can make this right
The hangman waits in the center of town
The mob marches me through the streets
I pray that i’m saved but alas it’s no use
Laughter smiles his deceit
The stone cutter cuts the stone
The wood cutter brings the pine
The grave digger makes the bed
Then we sings him to sleep
Or the hoodoo man him comes calling
Hanging from a beam, life abandons thee
You’re forgotten seed, more than what it seems
Underneath the grass cast out all alone
I’m going to live it seems, underneath the stone…
We laid him in his bed
We sang him songs to sleep
And now he takes his rest
The stone
I can see her there, crying all her tears
Angry for what is lost, for all your stolen years
Her sadness overwhelms, upon my earthen throne
She’s Longing to live with me, underneath the stone
Underneath
The lady dressed in black
He left her all alone
If only she could sleep
Rest in peace
The Stone cutter cut that stone
Wood cutter brung the pine
Grave digger made the bed
Then we sangs him to sleep
But I’m still coming

What Lies Become

Whoa
I am a simple mind
Filtering through the depths of lies
Forever in fortune I must decline
To end my pursuit of sacrifice
In a cage deep in a dungeon
Somewhere locked inside your mind
In the end you’ll beg for mercy
Without any hopes that you will survive
Buried below the ground and well beyond reach
Observing with a method, preparing eagerly
This world filled with fools and liars
Some will be chosen and then taken to the fires
I’m always laughing at the sins that you must repay
Darkness never seems to end beg for mercy and pray
Your numbers drawn again a reminder of your fate
And you cannot escape, you’ll never escape
Hell must reside here
Locked Chained
This temple you have chosen
Locked Chained
A helpless conjuration
Locked Chained
Waking up reality
Locked Chained
I am the keeper of fools, To whom you now belong
Enlightened in one’s fear, Residing in the dark
I am a simple mind, Filtering through the depths of your lies
Forever in fortune I must decline To end my pursuit of sacrifice
Rising through the ground moving nothing but air
Creation of the lost brings images they share
Predetermined quest of the looming beast
Demanding for the chosen ones for his eternal feast
Deep in a dungeon Lost in the catacombs of hell
You’ll find deep in the earth The keepers hidden cell
Where bodies lay in wait For tortures eternal fate
And you cannot escape, always kept from heaven’s gate
This terror that fills you within
Painful is the memory
Without any hopes that you’ll survive
In the end you’ll beg for mercy
And now you see what lies become
With great power comes great hostility
Hell must reside here
Locked Chained
This temple you have chosen
Locked Chained
A helpless conjuration
Locked Chained
Waking up reality
Locked Chained
I am the keeper of fools
To whom you now belong
Enlightened in one’s fears
Residing in the dark
I am a simple mind
Filtering through the depths of your lies
Forever in fortune I must decline
To end my pursuit of sacrifice
