about

Genesis is a concept album about a dark world; a planet in orbit around a star on the brink of supernova. The planet's brutal ruler, Ebon, has ambitions to become a God and while he has many supporters, some seek to dismantle his power.

Track Name: Procession
MAN 1:

Millions of faces stand
Beneath the shadows cast
Exaltation
Our savior come at last

Born under blackened rays
Of a cold and dying star
Annihilation
False prophets bear the scar

MAN 2:

You cannot speak for all
Of those who gather here
Disposition
Devotion gained through fear

Boundless perspectives
My reasons are my own
Anticipation
Ascension to the throne

THE HERALD:

And now behold, Ebon
Ruler of All
Living and Dead
Pray for your souls

EBON:

Minions
Forever, rule thee
I am Immortal
You will obey me

Disciples
My words surround thee
I am eternal
Enslaved progeny

MAN 1:

Now I have gazed upon
The mask of darkened steel
Elation
In awe of the surreal

MAN 2:

Enraptured by the
Energetic atmosphere
Confirmation
Unhindered I revere

Lyrics written by Chris Elliott and Nick Morine
Track Name: Slave
Death
Hate
Rejection of Fate
Been years since I've cried

Lust
Mate
A risk I have to take
Been years since I've tried

Fear
Mine
The past a waste of time
I'll hear no more

Strength
Mine
The future in my mind
I'll take it all

Fall to your knees like a slave if you need to
Frail cowards path is not mine
Fall to your knees like a slave if you need to
Blood like red iron and wine

(Slave)
My master
(Slave)
Obey command
(Slave)
No longer
(Slave)
Die by my hand

Robes
Red
Entombed beneath the dead
Torture in the gloom

Flesh
White
Emaciated sight
Foreseeing doom

Sun
Black
The sorrow you attract
You sacrifice your own

Blades
Black
Corpses crudely stacked
A throne of bone

Track Name: Failed Assassin
(GRAVELOCKE, THE VIZIER)
PARDON MY LORD
THERE SEEMS TO BE
A PROBLEM WITH THE ENERGY
THAT FLOWS THROUGH THE PREDICTORS EYES
AN INTRUDER COMES TO ATTEMPT YOUR LIFE

(EBON)
PITIFUL VERMIN
LET HIM COME
HE WONT HAVE BEEN THE ONLY ONE

(GRAVELOCKE)
AS YOU SPEAK LORD
HE SHALL PASS
SOON HIS EYES
WILL TURN TO GLASS

(THE ASSASSIN)
I WILL BE
THE ONE WHO BRINGS YOU DOWN
YOUR TURN TO SUFFER

HOLD THE KEY
TO END YOUR EMPIRE
DEATH
NOW IT AWAITS YOU

A GLASS GRENADE
RELEASE THE TOXIN
GAS
YOUR ONLY WEAKNESS

THE TIME HAS COME
TO BREATHE YOUR LAST BREATH
END
ENTER YOUR CHAMBER

DIE NOW EBON

(EBON)
YOU CAN'T TOUCH ME

(THE ASSASSIN)
FACE YOUR WEAKNESS

(EBON)
I HAVE NONE

(GRAVELOCKE)
PARDON MY LORD
I MUST BESEECH
I BE THE ONE
THAT MURDERS HE

WHOM STAINS YOUR HALLS
AND PAYS NO HEED
HOW NEAR HIS SOUL
TO AGONY

(EBON)
DARE YOU NOT
I WILL HANDLE THIS
HIS SKULL WILL CRUMBLE
BENEATH MY FIST

(GRAVELOCKE)
AS YOU SPEAK LORD
EXTINGUISH LIFE
RID OF US THIS
MINOR STRIFE

(THE ASSASSIN)
MISERY
FALSE BETRAYAL
LIES

(EBON)
DECEPTIVE COWARD

(THE ASSASSIN)
DESTINY
FAILED EXECUTION
DREAD

A LOOMING DARKNESS

(THE ASSASSIN)
ETERNITY
CAN'T COME BETWEEN US
END

(EBON)
CONSUME THE WEAKEST

(THE ASSASSIN)
DESTINY
I CAN'T ESCAPE HIS
GRASP

(EBON)
NOW FACE THE BLACK MASK

(EBON)
KNEEL AND SUFFER

(THE ASSASSIN)
I SHALL NOT
I'LL ESCAPE YOU

(EBON)
FACE MY WRATH

Track Name: The Only God in the Sky
Accelerate / The end of the sun / That shines upon / Our darkened world
Supernova / Impending / Impatience, Conquering the essence of their existence
Imperative that I must

Discard the words that were spoken to me, when I was / Just a young and ignorant

Disciple
Destiny's tentacles
Reach into my mind
Satiate the desire to
become the

ONLY
GOD IN THE SKY
THE ONLY
GOD
THE ONLY
GOD IN THE SKY
THE ONLY
GOD


Desecrate
The will of the dissident
Who failed to prevent
this ult-i-mate
transcendence

Super
Nova
Impending
Impatience Conquering
The essence
of their
Existence
Imperative that I must

Ignore the laws
Imparted to me
When I was
Just a young and wretched
Parasite
Reject the reasons that
others imposed upon me
Reject restraint
And ascend to
become the
ONLY
GOD IN THE SKY
THE ONLY
GOD
THE ONLY
GOD IN THE SKY
THE ONLY
GOD

Ascendency
Finally
Welcome the
Perpetuality

Invite destruction
Fated to be

Since I was
Just a young and sickly
Neophyte

Summon the strength
that dwells within me
Destroy the sun, and take my place
as the

ONLY
GOD IN THE SKY
THE ONLY
GOD
THE ONLY
GOD IN THE SKY
THE ONLY
GOD
