Track Name: The Home Port
The only light on the shore
is your home burning to the ground
The only light in my brother’s eyes
is the oath of the home port

Watch it burn
Watch it burn

Paint the picture of the failure
Paint the red shores of glowing coal
Write down the story of the fallen
The song of forgotten

Never forget the oath
Never forget yesterday
Never forget the oath
Never let go

Breathe in the salty air
of your home port
We are not heading to the harbor
tonight

The blue line in the horizon
keeps us as its prisoners
But there's a spark in our hearts
There is a spark in our hearts

We speak with the words of revolution
For the survivors
For the lonely minds
With the taste of blood on our teeth
we strike beneath the sea

Never forget the oath
Never forget yesterday
Never forget the oath
Never let go

Breathe in the salty air
of your home port
We are not heading to the harbor
tonight

We will not hide
with the spark in our hearts
Raise your flags high
against the blood red sky

For the fallen
For the oath
For the survivors
For the home port

We will not hide
We will not hide
We will not hide
We will not hide underground
Track Name: Frozen Anchors
The world was close at hand
Now I’m drifting alone
Far from the shore
with a thought long lost

Keeping my distance
from the eager years
Never turning backAnd I chose to stay and wait forever
And I count the seconds in my head
as I break step by step

The frozen anchors
The choking chains
The frozen anchors

My dead and cold fingers
strangling the bits of hope
Once lost promises
burning in the distance

The sails have been torn down
My crew is only an army of ghosts
Army of ghosts

I’m speaking for the cold and silent sea
I’m whispering for the frosty wind
I’m screaming for the singing mountains
But the answer will always be the same

They sing for the times
that could have been changed
They sing for the words
that never were said

And I chose to stay and wait forever
And I count the seconds in my head
as I break step by step

The frozen anchors
The choking chains
The frozen anchors trapped in black ice

Sing for the times
that could have been changed
For the words
that never were said

The frozen anchors
Track Name: Counter Reactions
The work of creative minds
is replaced with hollow structures
The idea of better tomorrow
has fallen with our anchestors

The shadows of the machine
cast upon the blood and oil
spilled to the ground

Can’t you see
you’re the same as me?
I’m not your enemy
You’re the same as me

Stare to the eye of the hostile
We’re all the same
We’re all alive
Stare to the eye of the hostile
We will survive

We are the counter reaction
We are the remedy
The gears spin slower
The gears spin slower


Crush the icons of the dying world
The faces of the cold and lonely earth

Our heroes are sleeping now
Deep in the seven seas
Our heroes are sleeping now
In the soil of the lost centuries

Bring down the fences and unite
Bring down the fences and unite

Stare to the eye of the hostile
We’re all the same
We’re all alive
Stare to the eye of the hostile
We will survive

We are the counter reaction
We are the remedy
The gears spin slower
The gears spin slower

We are the counter reactions
