LYRICS:

SUNDER I - IV:

Lorkhan, Heir of the Void (1:25 - 2:57)
AS WE BEGIN, THERE UNFOLDS ONLY CHAOS
IN NOTHINGNESS, SO DESERVEDLY BIRTHED
HEIR OF THE VOID
LORKHAN
HEIR OF THE VOID
LORKHAN
WHAT A WONDEROUS LOVE IT IS
TO BIND TWO SOULS IN FAITH
CHAINED COMPLETELY TOGETHER
WITH NEVER A FALSE WORD
WHEEL AND WOE, WISH AND REAL
WOVEN EACH TOGETHER
FROM FIRST KISS TO LAST BREATH
FIRST AND LAST, WHISPERED IN LOVE

Elysian Flesh-Divinity (2:58 - 6:49)
HEMORRHAGE INTO PRIMORDIAL SILT
HATCHLING PLANET OF ASTRAL GALLOWS
IN FLEETING ATONEMENT, THE AEDRIC HEIR
SPLINTERED (TO) WREST THE HEART FROM ELYSIAN FABRIC
AN ARCANE MOTE IN THE ERRATIC DEEP
...WHERE NO ASPECT OF THE NEW WORLD MAY EVER FIND IT

A Reasonable Amount of Selfishness (6:50 - 10:19)
PASSING TORCH UNTO FLESH FORGED OF SOIL
INFANTS OF HAUTEUR AND FLAW, OF ARRANT RUIN COSMIC
BEHOLD! THE MOONLIT SPHERES
WATCHERS OF THE BREATHING VALE
AS THEY SOJOURN THE HORIZON (IN) TWISTED WALTZ
'NEATH THE COMPANY OF STARS
THEIR LAMBENT GRACE HINTS OF CLANDESTINE BEINGS
AN ABSENT ERA, LOST IN THEIR FOLLY
THE PROGENITOR'S BETRAYAL
DECEIVER OF PIETY
FROM THESE GREAT WOUNDS
MAKE OF DEATH A BASTION TO SIRE PROSPERITY

The Weight of Falsehood (10:20 - 13:16)
ADJOINING FAITHS ASUNDER
FORTH AND BACK THROUGH THE BLACKENED
A WARNING TO THOSE WHO FOLLOW
TAR-MOUTHED CONFESSION TO HEARTS SPLIT IN TWO
CARVED BENEATH THE BREACHING SUN
A FRAGMENTED VISION OF WORLDS BENEATH
BOTH TO REFLECT AND BECOME
AN UNCANNY AND ILLUSTRIOUS MIRROR
IN A MOON-BLED LAKE OF MIRRORED FATES
CARVED BENEATH THE BREACHING SUN

KEENING I - IV:

Psijic | CHIM (13:17 - 17:45)
GHOSTS OF THE HEIR, ADRIFT CLANDESTINE SERPENTS
THROUGH HIS HEART I TRAVERSE THE TOWER
AWAKE TO THE AURBIS
I - TRAVERSE THE TOWER
AWAKE TO SEE THE AURBIS
ADRIFT CLANDESTINE WRITHING IN HIS HEART
GHOSTS IN THE AIR
THE WHEEL
THE FLESH
THE TOWER
BETRAYER SIRE OF CREATION
REMNANT SOUL
ASTRAL WALKER
AN ATLAS OF SMOKE
LUCID BEYOND THE ZERO-SUM
I - THE TRAVERSE TOWER
AWAKE TO THE AURBIS
ADRIFT CLANDESTINE SERPENTS THROUGH HIS HEART
GHOSTS IN THE AIR
I AM, AND I ARE, ALL WE
IN UNITY
THE WHEEL
THE FLESH
THE TOWER
BETRAYER SIRE OF CREATION
REMNANT SOUL

In My Own Parting Words (17:46 - 18:54)
[Instrumental]

Dreamer's End (18:55 - 23:00)
FOR HE IS WREATHED NO LONGER
BY A PITEOUS CABAL OF ASH
USURPER VASSAL: OH HOW SWEET IT IS TO BE A GOD
GAZE UPON THE HEART
BOW BEFORE A YEARNING LURID VOID
HALLOWED - THIS GROUND OF OUTCOMES UNFORESEEN
BEHOLD FLESH DIVINE, AND SHUDDER
AT THE END, BEYOND THE BURDEN OF EARTHLY LIFE
SO WE MUST ENDURE
DEFIED NO LONGER BY THE SHIFTING SUN
NOW WE DRAW BLOOD, ADRIFT THE SANGUINE MIST
FOR WHAT ARE WE BUT FETTERED REMNANTS
OF AN ILL-BEGOTTEN MYTH
AN ABHORRED ABASEMENT OF THE THRICE-BETRAYING LORDS
SOVEREIGN DREAMER - NULL UR, THE ONE REBORN
I BEHELD THE MOUNTAIN RED, ENCIRCLED BY A BOLD AZURE CONCEIT
CURSED WITH A GRAND AND INTOXICATING INNOCENCE
WE OLD ONES, WHO HAVE KNOWN THE OLD ACHE OF TREACHERY
TRANSCEND THESE TOOLS OF DARKER ARTIFICE
'HOUSE THE SIXTH' MUST FALL UNMOURNED
SO HIS HOUSE MUST FALL UNMOURNED
'HOUSE THE SIXTH' MUST FALL UNMOURNED

Red Year & The Fall (23:01 - 28:08)
"I REMEMBER... I DO NOT FEEL IT...
I CAN, IF I CHOOSE, REMEMBER THE FEELING...
BUT I DO NOT CHOOSE"
OH, CELESTIAL STONE
CONSORT TO A CLARET SKY
BAAR DAU AWAKENS
THE OPIATIC MALICE
THE SKY-SUNKEN ORB, ONCE HALTED IN VANITY
DESCENDS UPON THE DISAVOWED
TIME IS SHORT
AN ABSENT GOD-KING
REVERED HITHERTO
TRANSCENDS T'WARD A FURTIVE REST
"...AND SO THOSE WHO CEASED TO LOVE,
WOULD PERISH IN HIS STEAD"
THE MOLTEN COLOSSUS
THE ENDING OF THE WORLD IS ALMSIVI
CELESTIAL STONE
ASTRAL OMEN
HIS LANDFALL NIGH
THE DREAMSLEEVE BECKONS
ONCE THRIVING SOIL, NOW SEARING SEA
HEARTH SUNDERED IN FLAME
THE TOWER STIRS

Silt Sunrise [Bonus Track] (28:09 - 29:45)
[Instrumental]
