Light Bender 03:34
Coal coat, six footed strides Manipulator of the visible light I am not man Cobalt menace with a violent smile Ferocity of the primal wild I am more than I am illusionist and hunter Where there are two of me, more of you will surely suffer Vicious bestial grin Undulating limbs To rend Apex predator prowls the night Hulking brute of adumbral might I am more than Two by two in rows I’m on you baby… comin’ straight for the throat From the fey we’ve come To serve the greater hunt
Hide Mind 03:33
Mother dark please guide to guarded secrets Bladed brothers, mark your targets well Father night allow us to be shapes among the shadows Sister silence, keep us quiet, all to hide us, from their prying eyes Soundless, shaded, set the bait and Ready for the strike Sink the blade in, slink away then Back into the listless night We demand unflinching hands A vorpal mind Our guild will ever thrive through time We move as one Lay low We’re everything that you don’t know Stay low As above and so below Lay low Through furtive channels, power flows Stay low Trust in your instinct, faith is your knife We do not need our vision To see the truths you would belie So don't lie…. Cause we know And we’ll find We move as one
Mage Lust 02:19
Tell me of your ancient sorcery Of the whispered word and secrecy Forever I have always longed To wield the power of the gods Mage lust, a hunger grown From dust and rotting bone Phylactery keep me from dying So that I might consume the light
Mirror Image 03:25
Never met a mirror image that I didn't despise For all the asymmetric imperfections therein lie They lack with a jealous zeal Hard facts rarely garner appeal And just the same, I’ve never known a fool for being wise Don't get it started while being so broken hearted, love Conjure your image with confidence Just cast and shape it in absence of any hatred, ‘cause In time it will come Ever the effervescent gestures of our kind End up in being just another million broken lives Step back, none of this is real Stand firm and resolve to heal I know you hear me and this time you won't deny my cries
*unprotected sax*
Spell Shaker 02:48
Blessed by your fire I get so lost in your crystalline eyes Bewitching baby Sweet arcane lady Ephemeral delight Dancing in the lights I gotta tell you now You got me in a hold Stuck on contingency Sword and sorcery Couldn’t ever keep Me from chasing dreams Enchanted by potentiality Prepared to give the days away The breath of life lies gently on your name I'd follow you into your grave I will always be Anything you need You just need but speak Give your love to me
Raise up to the good times, girl We're runnin’ low on time I want our lust To last throughout this night But as we lay our bodies down upon the furs and hides You cried out in terror as the bed consumed your life Concealed in the lightless tomb And creeping towards the shine The glint of those golden coins has surely caught my eye But as I open up the chest it's teeth are sharp as knives Hindsight is looking good right now, curse my greedy mind Beware of the things you want, cause they might want you more, a killer likeness to the core I'd advise to question everything you've ever known, or else you might end up devoured by the door
The fire, the fear, the charm in your eyes Speech so deep could leave you paralyzed Monstrous hatred, perniciously vile Aberrant tyrant ain’t for bein’ kind So much to kill and so little time I wonder about the split in your mind The manner of creation begetting your line Marvelous wonder with a deathly smile Aberrant tyrant ain’t for bein’ kind So much to kill and so little time None who stand before them had a chance Leave before your flesh begins to melt Eyes are everywhere inside your mind Extinction of the lesser kinds Woe, Great Mother We're all prey In the eyes of the beholder, baby It’s growin’ colder baby, under these rays
High Fantasy 03:14
We stand before an ancient thing The sand now coils at our feet Breaching the skeins of the predators, so powerfully weak, so to speak They hold the truth that we seek A flare explodes in blinding light The air sparks heat amidst the fight of our lives Terrain erodes as we hold onto to what we can keep, so to speak And our truth is in reach Skies splintering Eyes opening Lives flourishing High fantasy
