Track Name: Clove hitch
Cut the water
Cut the sky
Mast on fire
Feed the waves

Cut the water with sword and with prow
Feed the waves to the bough
All hands on deck and go for the kill
beast devouring beast in this race

In soaring winds and crushing waves
All who are worthy to stand up to their fate
Are eager to worship, each in their own way
Yet long for the shore which keeps them save

Cut the sky with lines and mast on fire
Feed the wind to the sails
Free from the land cold death surrounds us
Never surrender we know no defeat
Track Name: Tooth and nail
Cast from the sea they took my bread away
Can’t taste the sea no more
A man of steel and fire now washed ashore
Can’t taste the sea no more

They chained my heart and soul
Chained my boat
But they will never win
They’ll pay for all their
Sins

It's a cradle and grave, fed by sea killed by waves
From the sea to the heart, taste the salt in my veins
Treachery beneath, all the calmness I see
Fight them all tooth and nail, fight them all you will fail

encore

They chained my heart and soul
Chained my boat
They threw me overboard
I’m dying inside and I’ll
DROWN

It is death I tell you it’s death
A fisherman sleeps and dies in his bed
It is death I tell you it’s death
The fire inside me once burning now dead
Track Name: Feed the crows
Scared of worms, dig deep that grave

A prison to myself
I’m digging all their graves
Nameless, silent and cold

An island to myself
I’m digging my own grave
Save me from worms

(They) Call me a bastard but I just keep digging deeper
I just keep digging deeper

(Cause ) I’m scared of all the worms
They want to clean my bones
Don’t feed the worms

When I’m dead besides the road
Who wants to pick my bones?
Feed on me crows

(They) Call me a bastard but I just keep digging deeper
I just keep digging deeper

Feed the crows
Track Name: All is glory
Behold the fowls of the air how they grow
They neither sow nor reap
Behold the fowls of the air how they grow
On fruit of (the) fields they feed

All is glory

Consider the lilies of (the) field, how they grow
They neither toil nor spin
Consider the lilies of (the) field, how they grow
(Now) look at the clothes they’re in

All is glory

Imagine the worms of the graves how they grow
They slither and they creep
Imagine the worms of the graves how they grow
On flesh in (the) ground they feed

All is glory
Track Name: Auric revelations
When man rose from the clay he was in
He gathered the spoils of the earth
Alluvial treasures he kept so close
Closer to his heart than his friends

Auric revelations come to us
Stronger than a narcotic high
Pushing treasures ever forward
The lure of gold keeps us going on
Track Name: Tectonic mass
Preparation

Come raise the chalice high
Prepare the sacrifice
Come raise the chalice high
Prepare the bread and wine

Liturgy of preparation

The glory of the earth hath shown on thee
Dealba me, Domine

Liturgy of the Catechumens

Blessed are the ones who are deep in the earth
Their souls will dwell amid good things

Liturgy of the Faithfull

Lift up your hearts we lift them to the earth
Let us stand well we’ve seen true light

The summoning of Ouroboros

You’e been asleep for oh so many years
It’s time to wake and claim your throne

Rebuild the temple from your arctic den
Foundations built on ice and fire

Summon the core lift it above the earth
Let us have faith we’ve seen true light

The rise of Ouroboros

Ouroboros rising Let the twilight come
Ouroboros rising Rise up from the core
Ouroboros rising As above below
Ouroboros rising Life and death are one
Track Name: The return of Viracocha
We have seen all the forces that justify fear
We have seen all the saints they parade through their streets
We have felt all the cold that is chilling their bones
And we traveled the roads that will take them home

We have seen all the forces that justify fear
We have seen all the saints they parade through their streets
We have felt all the cold that is chilling their bones
And we traveled the roads that will take them home

Waiting for the servant to be master takes so long
Hope is rising and falling

At 4000 mtrs it’s so cold
At 4000 mtrs there’s no hope
