Track Name: The Devil's Score
Old house full of memories
Treasons, lies and orgies
Blank page moves in a draft
Silence, the demon’s craft

Float in the air
Notes of despair
Twisted and sore
The Devil’s score

Blood drops, stains on the staff
Music fades in a laugh
I hear sweet melodies
Sinful, tragic stories

Float in the air
Notes of despair
Twisted and sore
The Devil’s score

I cannot rest, I’ve been here before
I’ve seen these rooms, the cracks on the floor
I need to flee, this place has my soul
No hope can bloom here in this hellhole

Float in the air
Notes of despair

Malignant symphony
Bows rubbing painful strings
Grotesque harmony
Kneel while the violin sings

Twisted and sore
The Devil’s score

Ominous descent
Decadent fresco
Meaningless movement
Iniquitous concerto

Enlightened by my new guardian angel
I no longer tremble
I will shed some light on these outrages
Open the eyes of the masses

Ear the Devil’s score
Track Name: Into The Mirror Black
Another clue
Macabre riddle
A ghastly view
Subdued to evil

Right there on the floor lies a black mirror
Window to the soul, gate to the horror

Shattered reflections of my pain
Corrupting my dreams with contempt
My heart is trapped forever in death’s domain

Another corpse
A gruesome ending
My vision warps
Voices are calling

Scattered on the floor, bitter memories
Razor-sharp debris spread out by the breeze

Shattered reflections of my pain
Corrupting my dreams with contempt
I can see my sanity flushed right down the drain

Walking down the trail of the dead
Aesthesya guides my hand
Hanging by a thread
I’m not alone in this quest
My faith prevails
I shall be blessed

Still I have doubts, why is she there?
Why would Syndras risk his fame?
And why would I care?
It’s too late now to hold back
My mind is set
Dressed in black

Shards bright like crystal blazing on my skin
Lines carved in my hands, making my head spin

Shattered reflections of my pain
Corrupting my dreams with contempt
I will put an end to his heinous reign
