Track Name: Prologue
Drifting away from earth
on a journey to widen perspectives

I was not prepared for the notion that

We are not alone
Alone
Track Name: The Approach
Venturing far from home
Crossing the stars to forge contact

Extending mans reach
The planets are so distant
So Distant

New Beginning
New Chapter
At Ignition

Warmth from the sun gives out
I wonder if I will return home

With a star at the core
Increasing speed
I wonder if I will return home
Return home

Descent calculations completed

I am so close

Prepare for contact

Out among the stars
Left the world behind to see
What the universe has in store

Distance means nothing to those who have dream
Overcoming seas of empty space
Between me and greatness
I am destined for this journey
I am meant for glory

Venturing far from home
Crossing the stars to forge contact

Contact
Contact

To make contact
Track Name: Revelation
Revelation
How could this be
The storied grandeur of the ancients
Below your feet
Mighty pillars, worn by the sands of time
A million miles from where they once resided

Archaic

Awful things have happened on this stone
The blood stained rooms

Archaic

Uneasy feeling travels up the spine
To widening eyes

Something is rising

Cold sweat breaks
Hands start to tremor
Fear itself takes warmth from your blood

Something is rising

I have been summoned

I am the soft voice in your head that drives you mad

I have been summoned

Revelation
How could this be
The storied grandeur of the ancients
Below your feet

Grasping for what is real
Nightmarish words are taking you alive

Ames to mission command
The rooms in this structure are ancient
Construction looks almost human
Mission command
Something feels
Terribly wrong

I have been reborn
Brought through the void
I will enslave the world you love

Cold sweat breaks
Hands start to tremor
Fear itself takes warmth from your blood

Something is rising
Something has risen

I have been reborn
Track Name: Delusions
The rule of man has come to an end
To an end

Manipulating the thoughts of the weak
Using the doubt of the bold
I will reclaim your minds to serve
Under me
Under me

Pray to your gods
Let them know
I have been reborn

Salvation through suffering
Protection through fear

Sever the heads of the resilient
Let the blood flow to the center of the earth
Rotting the core from the inside out

I shall build an empire of blood
On the corpses of your loved ones

Infecting my will into his mind
The carcass as a vessel

This body will become his tomb
Forced to watch his home burn

Mission command
I'm ready to come home
Track Name: The Sacrifice
Reality Shifting Focus
Altering state of an unconscious mind
Emancipation of the soul
Devastation of a useless moral life
Host to the force of the master

Vengeance pertaining to vicious ancient rite
Abomination changed state from the ether
The nemesis made flesh in the void

All time stretches before me
I have become
Eternal

Mankind will bow down before the wretched force
Out stretched hands reaching for power
My legion will assemble

Kneel down
Abandon hope and tremble before me

Searching for the strength to fight abomination
Reaching to the stars
Too far we are not ready

Visions of a home world burning
Most probable outcome
I am the catalyst

Sacrifice required
Unsung hero will not be remembered

I will stand
I will stand

The earth is mine
Revenge is coming
The earth is mine
The earth is mine to save
