Track Name: Yharnam
Lycans litter pikes ablaze
Torches and pitchforks are raised
To drive me out of Yharnam streets
While I am ankle deep
In blood of enemies so frequent
When can I bow my head to repent
There seems to be no end
Of trials thrown my way
While prophecies are on repeat

When these hunters come
Listen to the trigger of a gun
Name me a beast so foul
Never a friend to anyone

Am I a slave to this dreamland?
This is my fate here to stay?
Is this a great shame moving me?
Tell me what is paleblood in the end?

So you cleanse it with fire
And curse the fallen
May these lanterns still guide my way
Turn this blood into power
And let your sorrows
In this nightmare all good things burn

Insight brings on light
To this horror

The presence of the moon
So red and vile
It taunts me in my sleep
Giving birth to ones reborn
And a presence that holds the key
Teetering on good and evil
Only to find that neither
Are the answer I am looking for
Madman's knowledge opens the door
While I am losing sanity

When these monsters come
Listen to the trigger of a gun
Name them worthless bastards
Always a creature not a son

They are a slave to this power
A curse upon them to here to stay
Is there a cycle driving me?
Tell me what is paleblood in the end?

So you cleanse it with fire
And curse the fallen
May these lanterns still light my way
Turn this blood into power
And let your sorrows
In this nightmare all good things burn

Iosefka's clinic starts the path
To end there is your sacred task
Gun in hand a daunting feat
Masterclass of blasphemy
A call beyond, my enemy
Kos’ orphan I'll defeat

A hunter’s a hunter
Even in a dream
A hunter’s a hunter
Even in a dream

So you cleanse it with fire
And curse the fallen
May these lanterns still light my way
Turn this blood into power
And let your sorrows
In this nightmare all good things burn
Track Name: Clocktower
We are capable of evil
Expel all the scars burned within my mind
We are harbouring the lies that hide behind the truth
They will find the last of us tonight
But we will fight

Release the undermined
Release the undermined
Release the undermined

‘Cause they will never wake
From this nightmare
They will sit and wait
But I won't run far from this lie because
A corpse is best left alone

We all call out to this river
(Falsehoods lay in wait but)
Of blood and time but I am
(Conservation is imminent)
Holding to my life with all of my might
(My life is never ending)
Breaking down this
Heart beat
I will fall this evil
(Starving for a way to be)
Because my time is now

‘Cause they will never wake
From this nightmare
They will sit and wait
Sit and wait

Through this life
I've heard the hunters call
And history
But I will never know
I relive
Outside this hunters dream
This fantasy
No one will hear you scream

I will restore
The emptiness in all
My mind will soar
When I know my time had come
But I owe
Nothing for your life
Cut me wide open

‘Cause they will never wake
From this nightmare
They will sit and wait
But I won't run far from this lie because
But I won't run far from this lie because
A corpse is best left alone

Tick tock
(Expose this lie)
Tick tock
(A corpse is best left alone)
Track Name: A Call Beyond
Delightful madness elicits beautiful understanding
From ones who know absolutely nothing
I will guide their way to our great mother
To bask in her vision and figure
Traverse this nightmare while we exalt her needs
And see her

Swallow down the Earth
(A Call Beyond)
Swallow down the light
(A Call Beyond)

A man is following me
Through this maze of nightmares
His tauntings echo through
This place that I can’t comprehend
I see his face is caged in memories
And as he calls to me he sings
The majesty

Carry this crown
The queen has come
Present the fight
With all insight
Traverse the fog
When nightmares come
We hear the cry
A call beyond

Bestow upon me a blessing
That is vacuous and damnatory
We see his rage that grants us eyes
With sight to see

Extraordinary divinity
Witness as I

Swallow down the Earth
(A call beyond)

Carry this crown
The queen has come
Present the fight
With all insight
Traverse the fog
When nightmares come
We hear the cry
A call beyond
We hear the cry
A call beyond

The journey's end is completed
When prophecies cycles hault
Misery encased with every shakey
Breath we take
This lie gives life to everyone and
Everything we see; gives me sanity

Carry this crown
The queen has come
Present the fight
With all insight
Traverse the fog
When nightmares come
We hear the cry
A call beyond

Swallow down the Earth
(A call beyond)
Swallow down the light
(A call beyond)
Track Name: Old Blood
Seek the blood, the sanguine
The ichor of the gods
It’s flowing through my heart
And out from the tomb
Any way we go now
Under a cosmic sky
We go with insight
Of the unseen

In silence
We go forth
In violence

But we won’t forget the adage

Bloody vials revive us
Healing flesh and bone
Sightless though awoken
Our eyes are yet to open
Fear the Old Blood
Fear the Old Blood

Speak these words and exsanguinate
Each and every foe
Blood flowing in the streets
And out from the womb
Shrieking, bare, ineffable
A nightmare newly born
Delivered in twilight
Unseen

In silence
We go forth
In violence

But we won’t forget the adage

Bloody vials revive us
Healing flesh and bone
Sightless though awoken
Our eyes are yet to open
Fear the Old Blood
Fear the Old Blood

If ever we despair
Adrift and unprepared
Will mother Kosm hear our prayers?

Speak these words and
Ascend in twilight
Fear this curse
And descend in violence

Restrain these hides
With ropes and ties
And line our minds
With endless eyes
We’ve set our staves alight
But will they guide us through the night?
We’ve set our eyes on high
But will we ever meet the sky?
Arise

In silence
We go forth
In violence
In silence
We go forth
In violence
In violence

But we won’t forget the adage

Bloody vials revive us
Healing flesh and bone
But Sightless though awoken
Our eyes are yet to open
Fear the Old Blood
Fear the Old Blood
Track Name: Eyes on the Inside
In this I will endeavour
So grant me sight
This cycle churns forever
I’ll take my time

Pale faced and eyeless ones
Like visions of the tomb
Scream you who have never seen can
Can never know that true cosmic touch

In this I will endeavour
So grant me sight
This cycle churns forever
Granting inward eyes

I’ll forget all
When I awaken
But all in stride
I’ll bide my time
I built this crown
Up from nothing
And on my head
It will rust

Feed on life
For sustenance
Our mystic minds so capable of
Sense and discourse
Caged in a head
Helpless lust with no direction
Meet with the day
On sufferance
Or live in a night of unbeheld sight
Suck in the light
Leaving the dark
Resurrection, living death
Born of the blood
And undone the same
Grant us eyes
We who know your name

A crown and a cage
Is one and the same
Hear our prayers
You of many names

For we are born of the blood
And undone the same
Grant us eyes
We who know your name

The son and the heir to the mother
Lays claim to a dead throne
No man no mortal visage
Can hold back the blood flow

In this I will endeavour
So grant me sight
This cycle churns forever
Granting inward eyes

I’ll forget all
When I awaken
But all in stride
I’ll bide my time
I built this crown
Up from nothing
And on my head
It will rust

Feed on life
For sustenance
Our mystic minds so capable of
Sense and discourse
Caged in a head
Helpless lust with no direction
Meet with the day
On sufferance
Or live in a night of unbeheld sight
Suck in the light
Leaving the dark
Resurrection, living death
We are born of the blood
And undone the same
Grant us eyes
We who know your name

Grant us eyes
On the inside
