Track Name: Boat
Nobody knows what they look like
The mirror turned, would you laugh at that too?
You’re a dissident
You’re a walking crime
You’re a vessel

Mother to no one
Mother to that
Mother to statues
Mother to the rats

As we approach
A new Continent
So full of hope
Would you conquer that too?
You’re the conqueror
You’re an act of fate
You’re the agent

Father to no one
Father to death
Father to monuments
Father to the rest

You can’t buy silence
You can’t stop time
Track Name: Kingdom
Read the silence to write the story
In the future, only glory

Will we make it our kingdom, or will it rule over us?

All these monsters, lurking, hiding
All the bones we’ve left behind them

Will we make it our kingdom, or will it rule over us?

You’ve found a beast whose darkness you can’t own
Track Name: Motherland
All of these years
Still the ghost
Still the one child
You hate the most
In your silence
We contort
The loyal bastard
Has no choice

Motherland, how dare you?

With your crest
With your sword
With your blessing
I’m reborn
Every promise
That you broke
Every child
You gave the world

Motherland, how dare you?

You give birth to shadows, it’s dark inside your womb
The only future is never, the past is just too full
Track Name: The South
I never expected this mouth to hold so many secrets
The south will return to reclaim its original darkness
You’re blind but you see them, their membranes, their transparent figments
I never expected them to take back the original process

The south

The Thunder God is angry and anxious to see us all drowning
These fact vicious worms will be wiped off his kingdom
Emerge through the pavement their faces or dry clay and ashes
I never expected these eyes to see so many horrors

The south
Track Name: Lost Children
Take away your shiny spear and join the Godless enemy
Your soul is lost, your fear is lost
Everything that you once built, empty walls and empty guilt
Your soul is ours, your fear is ours

Damned by the men
Damned by their love
This is our land
Where we shall rot

Every man will disappear in the Southern hemisphere
Your soul is lost, your fear is lost
Every name will be consumed, we will never hear the truth
Your soul is ours, your fear is ours

Damned by the men
Damned by their love
This is our land
Where we shall rot
Track Name: Centuries
Here’s your cross and here’s your rag
Here’s your God and here’s your flag

Here’s your infant split in half
One part’s yours the other mine

You’ve been silent for centuries
Staring at yourself

Here’s a shattered piece of glass
Here’s your future, here’s your past
Here’s your infant burnt alive
His soul’s yours, his ashes mine

You’ve been silent for centuries
Staring at yourself
With the mirror we gave you
Staring at yourself
