stylez There isn't really a song on the album that isn't my favorite. Perpetual War happens to be the one that ends the album, making me sad that the album ended, so it makes me have to listen again. Favorite track: Perpetual War.

Track Name: Fields of Strife
The dismal bells of doom clash in the distance
Dragging me back into agonizing conscience

Embrace of night
Left me for good
Dazed and confused
Vision is blurred
Focus
Clear the mind
Shake off the weight
I have to walk

Unto the fields of strife
Every sense is set on fire
Unto the fields of strife
My blood begins to boil

Stumble across
Burnt memories
Drawn to the void
All progress is lost
Cold hands
Cold heart
Shake off the weight
I have to walk

Unto the fields of strife
Every sense is set on fire
Unto the fields of strife
My blood begins to boil
Unto the fields of strife
A slow slide into darkness
Track Name: Smoke and Mirrors
Sharpen your senses
Split tongues lure you in
They talk so sweet
And yet they are pure malevolence

Prone to distraction
So easy to divert
Craving entertainment
The brain wants a feast
Time diluted
A blurry mess
Points of reference
Lost in the mist

Smoke and mirrors
Self-inflicted misconception
Staring down the rabbit hole
No answers to be found!

The prize they claim
Your very essence
Cast away
Empty shell

Guzzling aberration
Sweet venom
Drowning the senses
Searching for a beacon
My eyelids are heavy as lead
Strained by trying to pierce this fog

Smoke and mirrors
Self-inflicted misconception
Staring down the rabbit hole
No answers to be found!
No answers to be found!
To be found!

A strong wind clears the horizon
A piercing scream shatters the mirrors
There may be hope!
Track Name: Songs of the Fallen
Can you see me roam across the barren lands
An endless journey since the dawn of time
Cleansing the earth from human parasites
Mesmerized by morbid serenades

Deepest desperation
You take anything
God-shaped hole in your head
Waging war and taking lives
All in the name of dogmatic misconception

I am Death
Death incarnate
Called into being
Summoned by the songs of the fallen

Wailing chants howl through the aeons
Just a murmur to the ears of the living
Pouring in as dissonant melodies
From the endless swarm of the dead

I am Death
Death incarnate
Called into being
Summoned by the songs of the fallen
Track Name: Heresy
Gazing out over this ocean
Solemn but eager reaching for a million stars
The fate of a galaxy in his hands
What once was true now is nought

Unleashing his full might
Eradicating the opposition

Illumination!
Heresy!

His mind has been warped
Twisted, turned, wrought and burned. Chaos, chaos, chaos!
From beyond the veil
Twisted, turned, wrought and burned. Chaos!

Crooked smile fades away
Nothing left of his former self

Illumination!
Heresy!

Betrayer!
Twisted, turned, wrought and burned. Chaos, chaos, chaos!
Weaver of lies!
Twisted, turned, wrought and burned. Chaos!

Gazing out over this ocean
Solemn but eager
Reaching for a million stars
The fate of a galaxy in his hands
What once was true now is nought

Heresy!
Track Name: Perpetual War
You say that you encompass my doom
You try to infect my heart with fear
A slow knife piercing the shield
A potent poison coating the tip

What wicked webs that you weave
Crooked serpentine constructs
Trapping thoughts and minds alike
Blinded by vacuous promises

A distinct lack of clarity
Listen to your better nature
We are here to dispel the clouds
To tear down the veil

Within the realm of common sense
All your petty tricks are meaningless
You exert to hide that place
Cover it with lies, deceit and despair

The only way you find comfort
Is a constant state of war
War against the rest of the world
A strategy doomed to fail

Your paths are fixed in stone
Obscure and archaic
Remnants of a past long gone
Covered by the sands of time

Transcend your lack of clarity
And listen to your better nature
For we are here to dispel the clouds
And to tear down the veil
