Track Name: Imprisoned Cell (demo)
the garden sends a messenger
centuries of sleep, in meadows deep
his secret holds the trigger of your vital cells

awaken in the cell of horror,
floor stained in blood from yourself and a friend
you never met him,
but you'll take anything

your eyes are a beautiful blue;
in a rage the cloud's setting over
your eyes have a beautiful skew; only in a rage
garden sends a messenger. his secret, it is... vital cells

sleep in the cell of destruction;
can't clarify what is said in this room
you'll never meet him; he didn't have what it took

your eyes are a beautiful blue;
in a rage the cloud's setting over
your eyes have a beautiful skew; only in a rage
garden sends a messenger. his secret, it is...

what made you go,
is not a destiny
it's needed for resolve
your right could be the wrong
what brings you here,
won't be reversed
it's needed for resolve.
your right is wrong
Track Name: The Breach (demo)
slide the lock, the mechanism pulls
the guards will flock, the room soon will be full
the breach has begun

pain resonates the friends you once had, now
the cut is searing, you're not glad?
death is imminent, your pulse is rapid
the rest of your life is a subtle dream

oh, i think you know, i want to blossom with you

eat the infection, it wants you gone
slow the swelling, you're not fond?
death is knocking, haven't you grasped it?
sleep well, young prisoner, quiet the scream
now the time has come for you
curiosity persists, it wants to know who...
what brought you this hurt?
how can it stop? what do you want?
know of where the corridor goes

run, young trigger, cast away the fear
the shadows hide what may seem clear
don't lose sight of the times you hold dear
endeavors must remain silent, don't let them hear!

oh, i think you know, that i want to blossom with you
no, i know you know, that i want to blossom with you
Track Name: Pour the Panic (demo)
masked in blossoms, the world's in shambles
shrouded stems here,
beauty's shield impenetrable, hide the conflicts
exploit the good news, covered stories,
dust's shield is not so strong

one can be the cause of all
you need is comfort
can keep you warm at night
catches secrets about the
panic being poured in a hidden vase;
it grows uneasy

petals are falling, the blossom's failure
let it rain down, only with petals
beauty's shield cannot last forever
someone's blowing the dust off a bit too strong;
the petals feel it too

one can be the cause of all
you need is comfort
can keep you warm at night
catches secrets about the
panic being poured in a hidden vase;
it grows uneasy
so uneasy

i think you know
i want to blossom

i know you know
i want to blossom

with you

as one
Track Name: Quarniesque (demo)
two gates, i must escape,
elite swordsman cut me down
down the path, i'll find a new town
ladders and grids, dirt and haze
where it will end begins a new tale
these empty roads wail and fade
climb into shroud, flee to the gate

right when the world's lies are in sight,
quarniesque is the reason to fight

blades and eyes are hard to dodge,
why don't you dislodge,
why don't you fucking pull it,
why don't you just fucking pull it?!

near the end,
have we come?
end it all,
as needed

near the end,
we're not here
fear the end,
dear trigger

press onward,
until the
completion
defeats us

complete me,
finish us,
to mark the end of us all

right when the world's lies are in sight,
quarniesque is the reason to fight

blades and eyes are hard to dodge,
why don't you dislodge,
why don't you fucking pull it,
why don't you just fucking pull it?!
Track Name: Baroque Shrine of Memory (demo)
it's not what you've done
luck is not a familiar face
it's not how you've grown
it's how you'll grow

fall face-first, nothing
welcome an unknown
it's not how you've grown
it's how you'll grow

delve deep in your heart,
and try to find what you could not say before
it's already gone...
Track Name: Snowfield Marauder (demo)
first, hidden from the cold
sleep in the pod of protection
sharpened tips lay dormant

arise to a squall,
winds render ineffective;
enjoy it now

no, i won't be pilfered
no, i can't be hindered
yes, i plan to break you

yes, i hide my ardor
yes, i keep it close
no, i won't be snapped

next, exposed in full
excreted by the hand of the hunter
human tips frozen by the bitter cold

his approach was silent
you couldn't have been prepared for
the snowfield marauder

out cold

dragged by a shadow

no, i won't be pilfered
no, i can't be hindered
yes, i plan to break you

yes, i hide my ardor
yes, i keep it close
no, i won't be snapped

dragged by a shadow

i refuse to break
breaking is all you've got left
Track Name: Emblems (demo)
if you were lonely i'd stand out in the rain with no coat
now i'm lonely and you're not here to fill this hole

the thickest marsh won't hold down this plague of desire
the brightest sun can't burn my hand in yours,
our mirrored shield

if you were lonely i'd stand out in the rain with no coat
now i'm lonely and you're not here to fill this hole

pure intent spoiled by our misplaced hope
we've failed
erase my wish for you
commit to him

if you were lonely i'd stand out in the rain with no coat
now i'm lonely and you're not here to fill this hole
i'm so lonely and you're never going to fill this hole
Track Name: Pioneers (demo)
in a cold that sheds disguise, don't lose your mind
i am here to guide but i understand your fright
countless crawls on top of blight
show me no end, show off your might
i know more than you might like, but, fight on

this road begs for all life to cry
let us bring you elegance

us pioneers, we run the show
don't club his bones
leading the way we gamble this and misfortune

easy now, you're losing sight, don't crack your mind
i was here to guide but i can't control your fright
countless pitfalls to catch the doubt,
you can't lose the bout
you are less than you should be, nice frown!

this road begs for all life to cry
let us bring you elegance

us pioneers, we run the show
don't club his bones
leading the way we gamble this and misfortune

wait for your turn to speak

talk out of turn again
fires will scorch your plans
raise that voice one more time
you'll be a victim of crime

guess what? we still the run the show
don't club his bones
leading the way we gamble this and misfortune

wait for your turn to speak
because we run the show

just us
Track Name: Forgotten Sun (demo)
send it flying higher than the spies of aviation can reach
listen to her sulking, whining,
what a useless girl this one's grown up to be
he makes me want to splatter his nonsense everywhere
if it seems unfair it's about time to cover those eyes
they don't want what's next...

in your highest hopes you see me calm and happy
only you can't see anything
with your eyes closed all my actions you overlook, without effort
lack luster, i do without sun

get over your stupid mourning
no one wants to hear it anymore
all those fucking awful comments
just shut your mouth we've all been there too

i would tear out your air-wasting throat
if only i could reach your neck

the fireworks were so beautiful that night
let's just forget all the terrors you've caused
oh but we had such a wonderful chance
such a prize to be claimed
but then, connections can't be made through faulty wires
thanks for showcasing all the wrongs
you are poisoned with

stop relying on your genetic looks
begin lying to pair yourself with another fool
but then, connections can't be made through faulty wires
thanks for showcasing all the wrongs
you're poisoned with

in your highest hopes you see me calm and happy
only you can't see anything

send her flying straight into his soothing clutch
Track Name: Myriad of Shrines (demo)
damaged spirits lead a desperate apprentice
through shrines so lifeless
empty worship creates a lack of embodiment
as they all line up to be heaven-sent

but their heaven sends back snow and rain
it rejects their hopeless prayers

don't force him to nurse your wounded appendages
from the hole you dug yourself, the raw phases!
searching for diamonds in an empty mine,
praying to the very curse that makes you blind
toss up everything you stand for and fall in line

but your heaven throws down snow and rain
still rejects your pointless prayers

obey the hand of god or get crushed by its smite
judgement's upon us all
for believing in ourselves isn't bright
listen and hail his every call,
he claims the rights to all life
obey the hand of god or get crushed by its smite

because just when you thought purity,
he tainted you with fury
Track Name: Serene Depression (demo)
views from under a tree
split by foliage
vibrant and irregular
each leaf marks the end of a tale
they fall depressed and serene

fall down in shades of red
hues of orange contrast and blend

don't go just yet
i haven't mended my regrets

brown and yellow complete the scheme
of their bodies

secrets are hidden inside,
boiling and seething,
wanting to be freed
serenity flows on the outside,
hiding and running
wanting to be caught deceiving me

don't go just yet
i haven't mended my regrets
i will get my revenge
Track Name: Trigger of Vicarious Vengeance (demo)
if beauty is a precursor to terror, then
my intentions will be gorgeous

here i am, degrading the overseer
rain fell and i will kill the weaker

the twisted ways i'll attack are ineffable
striking in heat and fighting to defeat
i'm not designed to make mistakes,
there's no need to wait
expression of sorrow molds the coming of our new age
claiming you'd be with me if you could,
if you needed to find me you would
if that were true i'd be looking at you

here i am, degrading the overseer
rain fell and i will kill the weaker

i'm writing you off
this life is geared for vengeance
for rebellion,
for redemption,
for ruin

i've written you off
i'm triggered for annihilation
