Track Name: Red Serpent at Sodom
Red light flickers in this goddamned place
I have awaked again to another dream of you
A deal is a deal and I intend to keep it
Even thought I know how it all ends

How are you even real?
Why do continue to haunt my dreams?
The tattoo of the red serpent stares
In flame it moves on its own

Kiss me one last time
Don’t let me wake up completely alone
If is feeble echo is all can have
Then it will be all I ever needed.

How are you even real?
Why do continue to haunt my dreams?
The tattoo of the red serpent stares
In flame it moves on its own

The red dawn and the red serpent entwined around the sun
The red dawn and the red serpent feasting on the sun

How are you even real?
Why do continue to haunt my dreams?
The tattoo of the red serpent stares
In flame it moves on its own
Track Name: Exile of Light
Death is watching me
I see the light, I feel the Light
I will not try to flee
I see the night, I embrace the night
I am not ready to die
But I have seen the light and I feel the light
I will offer one last goodbye
Enjoy the night, sweet blessed night
Remember me as I am
I saw the light, I feared the light
Don’t let them paint me another man
Honor the night, Enjoy the night

Hope and Grace are useless frauds
I’m still waiting for my blood to thaw
I hate this world as you made it
I’m at a loss why I’m still breathing
Why call you Father when simply “failure” will do?
Track Name: The Green Serpent
I knew you when you were young. I've seen you grow all these years. But you wouldn't recognize me anymore, you would probably pass me by. We ran wild and free in those long fields, nothing to ever care about, nothing holding us back except our own imaginations; there were no inhibitions. So on the Serpent we pledged our love, the majestic green of his sides shining in the sun. And in the long reeds we settled down and embraced each other in tender repose. You left that very same week and I never felt so weak. I must have known in my heart that the moment had passed and we would never see another summer. I look at you know and the sunlight has gone from out of your face, replaced only by stone. You're weary from the pains of this world, but I cannot follow you any further. You renounced the Serpent. You renounced that evening. You have no memories of that perfect summer. You now only know when to kneel and when to stand.
Track Name: Fire Upon the Blade
When you awake I will be bearing flowers
When you come back to me, I will be by your side
Track Name: Monument III
Breathe deep the free air
Salt-stained and true
Realize that there is no God but this majesty you view
Endless skies and horizons; this is all I need
The waves pounding like a drum, proclaiming war on man
I will always side with this grand and inspiring sea;
A monument to the greatness of the timeless and ageless
So stand here with me on this rocky and violent ledge
At this Monument to this Earth
At the Monument to this Earth
