  • Won't walk the earth a specter
    Won't hold my tongue from lashing out
    This is my writ of honor
    Drawn by the blood that I have shed
    The beasts will soon assemble
    Conjoining in their putrid flesh
    Their hearts don't beat desire
    They pump violence and poison

    Flesh opens up, blood's retreating
    Flesh opens up, blood's retreating
    Death's embracing, all is ending
    Death's embracing, all is ending

    Time will not heal all of your pain
    I cannot wait for it all to come crashing
    Down

    The monsters walk among us
    Leeching the blood out from what's good
    Infecting at transmission
    Swallowing innocence from life
    Our time has come to stand forth
    The wretched womb from which they feed
    Behold the loathsome demons
    Send them into the hell they made

    Flesh opens up, blood's retreating
    Flesh opens up, blood's retreating
    Death's embracing, all is ending
    Death's embracing, all is ending

    Time will not heal all of your pain
    I cannot wait for it all to come crashing
    Down on your face, ripping your veins out
    Your insides win and kill you from within

    And the seas will rise as serpents
    Spawned from the mouth of earth's surface
    Soon the skies will fall fast, burning
    Open wide and eat the suffering

    The pulse is now quickening
    Softly, it's painstaking
    Look within to calm the storm
    Raging inside the form

    There's no turning back

    For I'm witness to the changing

    Take all you have brought to sacrifice
    For you will lose much more
    If you succeed in this battle
    You still will lose so much more

    The pulse is now quickening
    Softly, it's painstaking
    Look within to calm the storm
    Raging inside the form

    There's no turning back

    For I'm witness to the changing

    Take all you have brought to sacrifice
    For you will lose much more
    If you succeed in this battle
    You still will lose so much more

    Time has come to face all evil

    Time has come to face all evil

    Time has come to face all evil

    Time has come to face all evil

    Now the seas rise up as serpents
    Spawned from the mouth of earth's surface
    As the skies now fall fast burning
    Open wide and face the suffering

    The inferno spews out hell's horde
    Casting the flames upon our world
    As death eclipses all the light
    We make our last stand, 'til death: fight

    Time will not heal all of your pain
    I cannot wait for it all to come crashing

    Time will not heal all of your pain
    I cannot wait for it all to come crashing
    Down on your face, ripping your veins out
    Your insides win and kill you from within Writer/s: COREY BEAULIEU, MATTHEW HEAFY, PAOLO GREGOLETTO, TRAVIS SMITH
