Bloodstone & Diamonds

01. Now We Die

Standing at the edge of the world
Uncertainty calling as the page unfurls
Fortune, Heaven or Hell
Shedding my body of this mortal shell
Black steel and iron
A Lion Heart is forged from these bones
Fear not, the discontent that you hide
Awake from the slumber and define this time
No fear to pay the price
And with this now we die
Ashes to ashes
The ocean crashes
Louder and louder it cries
Over and over
The sands wash over
Facing, embracing the tides
And with this now we die
Screaming violence into the void
Is anyone listening or is all destroyed?
Fighting heaven and earth
Saving your children from the pain and hurt
Bloodstone & Diamonds
Nothing can break the strength of these stones
Cast off the shackles of the past
Live in the moment nothing ever lasts
Cross now the bridge of sighs
And with this now we die
Ashes to ashes
The ocean crashes
Louder and louder it cries
Over and over
The sands wash over
Facing, embracing the tides
And with this now we die
Are you ready to die?
Standing at the edge of the world
The damned are we
Abused and beat, we’re left for dead
We raise our head for we are strong and they are wrong
Well scream with me “I do believe”
I need your help, for I have knelt
Held fist at skies, and cried out “why?”
Your shoulder strength, it gives me length
We lift ourselves, together meld
So take my hand and don’t look back
And sing with me, “let new life be, old life goodbye”
And now we die, forever young
And with the now we die
Are you ready?
I’m standing at the edge of the world
Standing at the edge of the world

02. Killers & Kings

Dark lady read me the future
The ancient verse hidden away
I turn from the evergrey
Tarot cards keep us enraptured
Open mind become a sage
Let this unlock the cage
Ancient power
Darkest hour
Open your third eye and you’ll see
Killers & Kings
Inheritors of the earth
Killers & Kings
From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers & Kings
Look to Earth, summon the master
Awake the human living inside
Ecclesiasticide
The Hangman gives into temperance
The Sun shines over The Fool
High Priestess spreads her rule
Death and rebirth
Decay and mirth
Open your third eye and you’ll see
Killers & Kings
Inheritors of the earth
Killers & Kings
From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers & Kings
The King of Pentacles is here
Strength and Fortitude help to push away the fear
We stand atop the mountain with The Hermit and the lamp
As The Lovers in the Knight of Swords give in to the damned
What do the cards say? The prophecy remains
The Devil in The Emperor could keep us locked in chains
And the Death card doesn’t mean you die
It means a change is coming that you simply can’t deny
Reborn
Rebirth
From death comes rebirth
Killers & Kings
Inheritors of the earth
Killers & Kings
From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers & Kings
Killers & Kings
Inheritors of the earth
Killers & Kings
From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers & Kings

03. Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones

Let me feel my palms around your throat
Let me see the pain of lost control
Let me hear your heart racing inside
Let me see the darkness that you fight
When the night crashes down
(See no vision)
Can you believe?
(Derision)
Will I Fall?
(Down so far)
Into the deep
(It’s so dark)
Ghosts will haunt my bones
So just leave me alone
Let me taste the salt within your tears
Let me swallow hope it disappears
Let me steal the mind that makes you whole
Let me peel a layer from your soul
When the night crashes down
(See no vision)
Can you believe?
(Derision)
Will I Fall?
(Down so far)
Into the deep
(It’s so dark)
Ghosts will haunt my bones
(x2)
They won’t leave me alone
In darkest night I lay awakened with
These thoughts of endless black that never quit
The tortured thoughts inside my head you see
They hide a mask of pain that’s so ugly
These ghosts come haunt my bones
They won’t leave me alone
From my throat the agonies emit
My demons wrestle and my thoughts conflict
The stench of bile as I purge this hate
An inner struggle I can’t separate
These ghosts come haunt my bones
They won’t leave me alone
Thunder cracks and dark furies sound
When the night crashes down
These ghosts come haunt my bones
They won’t leave me alone
Thunder cracks and dark furies sound
When the night crashes
The night crashes down

04. Night Of Long Knives

You won’t see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives
Midnight we kill
In summer ’69 there came a prophet
His words were used to profit off the minds of the weak
He spoke of holes deep within the desert
His followers would convert to the belly of the beast
Don’t look into his eyes
Burning with malice past the point of no return
They’re piling bodies one by one
Fulfilling all their dreams to come
The prophecy of war that Charles Manson had begun
In the hills of Hollywood tonight
City of the Angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapists of the mind
The family fatal
Pitch black
You won’t see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives
Midnight we kill
The hills were echoing with their laughter
And happy ever after was a faded memory
Rosemary and the baby of Polanski
The people dead and bloodying the hills of Beverly
They’re screaming for their lives
Begging and pleading for the lives of babies unborn
The knives had only just stuck in
The horror of the splitting skin
Ropes are tied around their necks to breathe their dying breaths
In the hills of Hollywood tonight
City of the Angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapists of the mind
The family fatal
Pitch black
We have been so wrong
We will fall
No tomorrow
We’ll fall away tonight
Don’t look into his eyes
Burning with malice past the point of no return
They’re piling bodies one by one
Fulfilling all their dreams to come
The prophecy of war that Charles Manson had begun
In the hills of Hollywood tonight
City of the Angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapists of the mind
The family fatal
Pitch black
(x2)
You won’t see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
Because you won’t see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
On the night of long knives

05. Sail Into The Black

We sail into the black (x4)
And all those secrets
Lost in your eyes
And all those regrets
You hold inside
And all those memories
Left by design
And all those mysteries
Lost in your eyes (x2)
We sail into the black (x2)
And all those footsteps
Washed in the tides
And all those droplets
Blood into wine
And all those heartaches
Tears that you’ve cried
And all those mistakes
Washed in the tides (x2)
We sail into the black (x2)
I stare at the stricken
The follies of many
And the horror that lives in your eyes
And once were forgiven
The mind explodes in waves of terrors
Burn my eyes
Tear at the skin, the crawling beneath will begin
Side by side
Pounding the heretic drums will as we rise or we fall
And all these scars
The nightmare it calls
The fear and betrayal begin
We’ve come so far
The shit we ingest
With a mouthful of spit of spit and protest
We sail into the black (x2)
The black candle fades
Go disappear
Lost and forever broken
Shattered like glass
The scars and the sex
The lies and the fables we tell
And all we are
This fate is your choice
Regrets that you’ll take to your grave
These threads of silk
That held this together
Rotting and curdled as milk
We sail into the black (x2)
We sail into the black (x4)

06. Eyes Of The Dead

I am no longer alive
Somewhere along this life I have died inside
My soul has been denied
Rise of the black hearts
We take to the skies
The Ravens of omen
We don’t go down without a fight
Your grave we dig tonight
With fury and might
We’re freaks and we’re outcasts
Unwanted and dumb
We scavenge the land because we were all given to none
And our blood is one
Black wings spread their ebony quills
Bloody nails the hand that wills
The murder, murder
Wind is at our backs
Murder, murder
Now the crows attack
For once in this life
You’ll see through these eyes
Through the eyes of the dead
Skies become craven with feathers and crests
Laughing like jackals and our teeth are sharpened and wet
Black talons claw your chest
Tear at the flesh
Virtues of evil now thrown to the flood
The crows of apocalypse
Dragging your heart through the mud
And our teeth drip blood
Black wings spread their ebony quills
Bloody nails the hand that wills
The murder, murder
Wind is at our backs
Murder, murder
Now the crows attack
For once in this life
You’ll see through these eyes
Through the eyes of the dead
When the day of reckoning comes
And you cry out “Babylon won”
Eyes so dark, like ink we blacken the sun
So call my name, “Raven”
So fear his name, “Raven”
Hold dear this
You will never fucking break me
I’ve an army that will strip you to the bone
We’ll feast on your carrion dreams
Blacken your skies
Shrieking the coldest of screams
Our shadows stand agleam
For we are the dead and we’ll rise up and say
Nothing will break us
Nothing will stand in our way
We will seize the day
Little man the worm has turned
Power and respect we’ve earned
Black wings spread their ebony quills
Bloody nails the hand that wills
The murder, murder
Wind is at our backs
Murder, murder
Now the crows attack
For once in this life
You’ll see through these eyes
Bloody hand wills
The murder, murder
Murder, murder
For once in this life
You’ll see through these eyes
And these are the eyes
That your god denies
So just one last time
You’ll see through these eyes
Through the eyes of the dead (x5)

07. Beneath The Silt

Sailing under sheets of rain
The waves crashing inside my brain
A gray horizon lies below
The oceans pulling undertow
Swallowed by the silence of a watery abyss
Save me
I’m drowning
Beneath the silt
I’m sinking
Beneath the silt
Clouds of ashen paint the sky
A black fog forces down the eyes
A casket floating out from shore
Depression closer evermore
Swallowed by the silence of a watery abyss
Save me
I’m drowning
Beneath the silt
I’m sinking
Beneath
Climbing the walls (x4)
Beneath the silt (x3)
I’m swallowed by the silence of a watery abyss
I’m swallowed by the silence of
And grasping at the skies above
I’m drowning
Beneath the silt
I’m sinking
Beneath the silt
(x2)

08. In Comes The Flood

All hail
Praises be to thee
Oh ye paper deity
As we hail our sacred cow
To the bankers we will bow
Endless profit from their wars
Making slaves of all the poor
Your new god is on the hill
“The Almighty” Dollar Bill
I want to burn down Wall St. baby
And fan the flames of discontent like hades
Saints of Red, White and Blue
Pass bonds of junk to you
Our flag has all but bled to green
In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America
Live to Buy or time to die
It’s all for sale on credit lines
Until the fucking end of time
Shackled to the dotted line
Oh the market may be free
But not for you and me
Succumb as we forget
To the Angel fo Debt
I don’t give a fuck if I’m rich motherfucker
We bought that line ‘cause we’re a bunch of suckers
We’re fighting over scraps
We’ve let our conscience lapse
By turning cash into a god
In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America
Moneytheistic religion
Saints of the red, white, blue and green
Who dare to inflate my life’s interest rate
‘Til their rich bellies burst at the seams
Our lives nothing more to them
Than a snap financial decision
Blinded by a TV screen
All hail the American Dream
And woe to thee
This life empty
If we hold this dear
Then lose our fear
America wake up
In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America
(x2)

09. Damage Inside

A bell tolls on as the rain comes down
On my face the drops they sound
I slowly melt into grey abyss
Depression and her endless kiss
I hope to feel the life again
And in the numbness living in
I sit in silence deaf to all
And I can’t look you in the eye
I don’t want you to see the damage inside
I’ve been gone for so long
My demons pull me into the hole
To dance with leeches and drink my soul
My violins plays the endless song
Of hearts broken everlong
I can’t look you in the eye
I don’t want you to see the damage inside
I’ve been gone for so long
And I can’t look you in the eye
I don’t want you to see the damage inside
I’ve been gone for so...

10. Game Over

Oh your sweet little lies
Oh your sweet little lies
I can hear when I hold you close to me
When I look in your eyes
I see through your disguise
What I see is an only lonely void
And I can see hell in your eyes
Cause you’re drowning inside
Those fake tears that you cried
As I claw my way from your tragedy
Emptiness is your bride
Arrogance is your pride
I won’t drown in another’s misery
And you won’t pull me down to die!
No!
Stuck in this prison with a brother I loved
Stuck in this prison with the memories of...
Another time, when music’s all that we had
Bonded by anger and addictions, so glad
Always together but no words are spoken
This is the sound of a friendship broken
Trapped and climbing up the walls
How the fuck do I get out of these pitfalls?
And you say that life is just a game and
Everyone who plays is just a pawn
And shame on me it went so long
How could I have been so wrong?
I’ve forever gone colder
If life is just a game then game over
Dreaming of choking someone I used to know
Strangling the negativity that they sow
Resent has now become the face in the mask
That plays upon a bitter two-man cast
Go find somebody else to blame your problems
Trying to fuck me because you can’t solve them
Stop! You never gave a shit
We almost fucking quit because how much you hated it
For as long as you’re alive I’ll curse your worthless name (x2)
On the day of your demise
Unburied and left for the flies
Believe me that I will piss upon your grave
Forgiveness may greet me on someday
But I’ll never forget all this pain
Let there be no mistake
This is not a game
Oh your sweet little lies
Oh your sweet little lies
I can hear when I hold you close to me
When I look in your eyes
I see through your disguise
What I see is an only lonely void
Cause you’re drowning inside
Those fake tears that you cried
As I claw my way from your tragedy
Emptiness is your bride
Arrogance is your pride
I won’t drown in another’s misery
Forever this friendship has died
And you say that life is just a game and
Everyone who plays is just a pawn
And shame on me it went so long
How could I have been so wrong?
I’ve forever gone colder
If life is just a game then game over
Game Over (x4)

11. Imaginal Cells

[voiceover]
We’re in a critical phase of human civilization that our survival is really in question
There is generally a feeling that something that there’s something happening
People have been exposed of course to the whole concept of peak oil, to climate change, to population explosion
The doomsday clock keeps moving closer
Religious people are talking about the End Times
Present state of disorganization
What seems to be happening is that people are beginning to realise
How many of these are real crises or how many of these are crises as a result of limitations of our belief system?
Where civilization’s structures become so rigid and it can no longer adapt to the changing situations
There’s a great increase in mental illness
There are signs of when these civilizations come to an end
There’s a sense of alienation within the population
A very large increase in violent crime, social disruption
Some of the beliefs that we have bought into affect the entire population so
And surprisingly an interest in religious cultism
As societies start to begin to disintegrate
These weapons of mass distraction which are now falling apart as we’re seeing life being exposed time and time again, every day, every week
What they’ve been distracting us from is our true power, the true nature of human nature
Our power to evolve, our power to become cells in the organism called humanity
And it’s an exciting story of our own power to evolve our own true nature and our own evolutionary destiny
Medicine started out as a healing art to help others but over time and in our materialistic world and a world based on corporations, industries that thrive by making money off of sick people
But the environment’s changing
We are at this very moment in a stage where corporations are teeter-tottering because they can’t maintain themselves anymore
They’ve grown too big and they have too little awareness to maintain this world
And while they’re doing their destruction of the planet, a new series
People are coming out of the old just like we talked about
The imaginal cells
But imaginal cells have a different vision of the world
And why this is important for us is because it is a world of relationship
Nobody can get off the bus, we’re all in this together
We see that we are indeed really approaching a change of civilization
It really is a lesson for us
We’re in the throes of a new evolution, a new civilization is manifesting
Creative minorities arise
The imaginal cells are people that are saying “there’s another way to do this”
There’s a better brighter image that’s much more successful than the one we’re doing
They’re precursors of the next level of our evolution
The fractal image will repeat itself, it’s not a coincidence
We know where we’ve been, we know we’re going
And all I have to say is just stay out of the way of the dinosaurs as they crash
And allow us to take over this planet and bring in the new ideas that the imaginal cells will offer
To support and encourage our survival as a civilization on this planet

12. Take Me Through The Fire

The drum beats on as I fall in trance
Stepping away from the endless dance
My enemies in the endless abyss
The snakes slithering out of the mist
No subtleties, truth is all that I ask
No pleasantries, you can take off that mask
This world has left me bruised and callous
Empty heart is filled with malice
Cold
A blackened hole where there was once a soul
No tender mercies here
Endure and persevere
Erase the obstacles that try to fight me
Blinded by ignorance
Suffer my persistence
Eclipse the light that will try to blind me
Take me through the fire
And if you lift me up then I will follow
Take me through the fire
So take me through the fire
Too many voices fill the empty void
Too many choices and we’re left devoid
The killing fields fill with bodies dead
The sun goes down and last rites are read
‘Cause even now I keep my ear to the streets
And they whisper to me your deceits
You better sleep with one eye open
Never let my name be spoken ill
I’ll have to send the lions in to kill
No tender mercies here
Endure and persevere
Erase the obstacles that try to bind me
Blinded by ignorance
Suffer my persistence
Eclipse the light that will try to blind me
Take me through the fire
And if you lift me up then I will follow
Take me through the fire
So take me through the fire
I will prevail
I’m stone and shale
Obsidian
Your oblivion
Becomes
No tender mercies here
Endure and persevere
Erase the obstacles that try to bind me
Blinded by ignorance
Suffer my persistence
Eclipse the light that will try to blind me
Take me through the fire
And if you lift me up then I will follow
Take me through the fire
So take me through the fire
Fire
Take me through the fire
(x2)
