Track Name: Leviathan
Verse
Into the swirling sea, a pawn or a slave you'll be.
Disbanded our commander, branded us as a mercenary
force in the fire fight, faces light by the firelight.
The sound of cannon thunder waking a new adversary

Half Chorus
And he won't sleep eternally.
King of the deep.
Dark Leviathan.

Verse
Out of the darkening brine, ten tentacles intertwine
around a wooden chest, compressed to splinter the corsairs spine.
Then savagely drag it down, the disembowelled giant drowns,
spilling all its filling. Sailors choke on their final sounds.

Chorus
And he won't sleep eternally.
King of the deep.
Dark Leviathan.

No he won't sleep eternally.
He'll breach to feed
on the horizon.

There on the starboard bow! I see it!

Man the harpoon! (aye aye captain)

Verse
The waters will part in place, into its massive face
the oceans will collapse perhaps the reaper will act in haste.
Permit me one bullet left to flee from this wretched death.
To my head the muzzle pressed,
but the powder's wet.

Chorus
Track Name: Killing Tree
(messing around)

Verse
Lead the wolf away from the tended flock.
Then bash it's brains in with a righteous rock.

Heathen words that you've been speaking
Heathen words of plot and treason
Heathen words like maggots breeding.
Lies, all lies.

Chorus
Children stand hand in hand
Your children stand hand in hand
You can save them, you can.
All that we ask is one dance
around the killing tree.

Verse
The humble nail does not wish to wound
the flesh impaled on a wooden tomb

Blood red ribbons, you can see them
Blood red ribbons fresh and bleeding
Blood red ribbons, you can be them
Tonight.

Chorus

March around the killing tree
March around the killing tree, tree
March around the killing tree
March around the killing tree, tree
March around the killing tree
March around the killing tree, tree
March around the killing tee
Until you meet the ground.
Track Name: Horror Lover
Verse
Now there's a fever in the air, come on you gotta catch it.
I'm the mad axeman, gonna bury the hatchet.
Ooh you feel my fingers down the base of your spine.
I keep more in the cellar than just bottles of wine.
Your hear is in my hand my bloody valentine.

Be mine.

Chorus
I'm the Horror Lover, creeping under cover.
I'll tie you down and eat ya'.
Play the double feature.

I'm the horror Lover, creeping under cover.
I'll tie you down and eat ya'.
Play the double feature.

You can't run, you can't hide.
I can be your victim baby, you can be mine.

I'm the horror lover, creeping under cover.
I'll tie you down and eat ya'.
Baby I'm your creature tonight.

(ch-ch-ch ah-ah-ah)

Verse
Well I only get up just to hear you scream.
Just call me ready Freddy, I'm the man of your dreams.
Ooh I've seen you walking in the still of the night.
I don't even know you but I know what you taste like.
Look into the mirror say my name three times.

Tonight.

Chorus

ooooh somebody take me away!

Chorus

I'm your Horror Lover x4

Baby, I'm your creature tonight.
Track Name: Iron King
Verse
Black crowds of crows gather on
the castle spires
and croak a hoarse and unremembered song.

Chorus
One last ride.
The oath of blood can't be denied.
High Iron King, although you've tried.
With your birth the seal was signed.

Verse
The end comes to all, each soldier and thane.
The bloodiest wars
are fought within the mind, within the vein.

Chorus

Breakdown
'Come with us Iron King'.
The grave birds sing.
'Iron King,
Raven wing and feather'.

'Come with us Iron King'.
The grave birds sing.
'Iron King,
Raven wing and feather'.

'Come with us Iron King'.
The grave birds sing.
'Iron King,
You've fought your final war'.

Outro Verses
When the king is cold and still
They put his body on a hero's shield.
Through the fields of his youth
they take him to the river's bay.

On his boat one final ride.
The wind will sweep the rain into their eyes.
The heavens cry at the side
of the son whose father drifts away.

He will light the arrow
and he will string the bow.
He's pulling back his elbow,
one day he'll let it go.
Through clouded eyes he sees him,
His father robed in fire.
One day he knows he'll be him,
then he'll meet the pyre.
Track Name: Speak
Verse
Dark desert daughter, The Speaker, you sought her.
The battles you fought for her turn into wars.

Her servants before her left blood in her mortar.
She speaks through their slaughter, you listen in awe.

Chorus
Speak in my ear I'm listening for secret songs of eternity.
Now speak in my ear, ever clear, your secret songs of eternity.

Verse
Stone arms embracing a black onyx basin.
The maiden must taste it, the blood in your veins.

Her love will hurt you but never desert you.
For better or worse you will live with the pain.

Chorus

Breakdown
The chalice is filling
with blood that is spilling.
Depleted of feeling.
Eternally.
