Track Name: Euphemia
- Verse 1 -
As I looked into the burning sky,
A tear forming in my eye
Memories of fallen dreams
And all those that have died.

Demons are possessing me.
Robbed of my eternity.
A cloud of ash that pierced the night;
I feel my hate take flight.

- Verse 2 -
Choking on my own words and
I'm scared of backing down
Because the hope within us all
Is up in flames.

Twisted by my warring conscience,
The situation's pushing onwards.
Genocide
Forever taints your name.

- Bridge -
This can't be, was this me?
I think I've lost control.
I caused this, I forced this,
Can I continue on?
I have caused this, I have forced this.
I caused this, I forced this, I caused this.

- Chorus -
Mou oshimai da.
Betrayed by trust, forever left to scream.
Oh hold me closely and die in my arms,
And then take this secret with you,
And then take this secret with you.

- Verse 3 -
I became your puppet master,
As you stared into my eyes,
Then stood and watched in horror
As you ordered them to die.

<This could fuel the revolution!>
This could be my last solution,
And all good victories
Come with a price.

Bridge

Chorus

- Final Chorus -
Mou oshimai da.
Betrayed by trust, forever left to scream.
Oh hold me closely and die in my arms,
And then take this secret with you,
And then take this secret with you,
Take this secret with you.
Take my secret with you.
Take my secret with you.
Just take my secret with you.
Yeah!
Track Name: The Legendary Sannin
- Verse 1 -
Live in the fire, die in the flame
Keep us alive and give us a name
Alive in the shadows of what we became
Keep us alive and let us reclaim

We were three, and now we are one
Stand with me, watch what we've become
Torn apart by desire and war
United we stand, divided we fall

- Chorus -
So summon me now, I want you to know
I've got your back, wherever you go
The look in your eyes - I understand you -
Cause we're are in deadlock and nothing breaks through
We know all the things that they'll never learn
And we've seen so much that they'll never see
Cause we are so strong, more than they can be
A hero to them, a legend to me
A legend to me

- Verse 2 -
Lost in the darkness, refusing to see
Blind to the things that we didn't believe
Watching alone as you turned to leave
Becoming a martyr for prophecy

In the mirror I see the snake's eyes
Luck runs out with a roll of the dice
Torn apart by desire and war
United we fall

- Chorus -
So summon me now, I want you to know
I've got your back, wherever you go
The look in your eyes - I understand you -
Cause we're are in deadlock and nothing breaks through
We know all the things that they'll never learn
And we've seen so much that they'll never see
Cause we are so strong, more than they can be
A hero to them, a legend to me
A legend to me

- Final Chorus -
So summon me now, I want you to know
I've got your back, wherever you go
The look in your eyes - I understand you -
Cause we're are in deadlock and nothing breaks through
We know all the things that they'll never learn
And we've seen so much that they'll never see
Cause we are so strong, more than they can be
A hero to them, a hero to me

So summon me now, I want you to know
I've got your back, wherever you go
The look in your eyes - I understand you -
Cause we're are in deadlock and nothing breaks through
We know all the things that they'll never learn
And we've seen so much that they'll never see
Cause we are so strong, more than they can be
A hero to them, a legend to me
A hero to them, a legend to me
A legend to me
Track Name: Heaven-Piercing Giga Drill
- Verse 1 -
I'd been living underground
Locked in the silence
Until you came and dug me up
Into a world full of violence

Now we're spinning down anti-spirals
<Cut it, cut it out x2>
So many faces, so many trials
<Cut it, cut it out x2 >

- Bridge -
They won't stop our evolution
<Who do you think we are?>
Fight against your execution
<Who do you think we are?><Woah!>
Trust me and we'll fly, not fall
Tip the balance and risk it all
Together we can go so far
<Ro! Ro! Fight the power!>

- Chorus -
<LOOK UP!>
All the lights in the sky are stars!
<REACH OUT WITH YOUR FIST!>
Let's demolish the tower
We are complete <our souls are fused>
My drill will pierce through - GO!

- Verse 2 -
A twisting helix binds to me
It follows everywhere I go
It carries the hope of humanity
And everything we know

Smash your head into mine
<Cut it, cut it out x2>
Time stops as we combine
<Cut it, cut it out x2>

- Bridge -
They won't stop our evolution
<Who do you think we are?>
Fight against your execution
<Who do you think we are?><Woah!>
Trust me and we'll fly, not fall
Tip the balance and risk it all
Together we can go so far
<Who the hell do you think we are?>

- Chorus -
<LOOK UP!>
All the lights in the sky are stars!
<REACH OUT WITH YOUR FIST!>
Let's demolish the tower
We are complete <our souls are fused>
There's no defeat <the path we choose>
We are complete <our souls are fused>
My drill will pierce through

Believe in me, who believes in you
