Track Name: There's Something Sinister in the Wind
verse 1
No one hears it but me, the Verbus Diabolus
Tongue of a dragon, the cyber prophet
Assigns the number, says “click agree”
Not born of a woman, the number of the beast is binary

chorus
There’s something sinister in the wind
The clouds of Megiddo gather
This is a sinister wind
Of war I’m hearing rumors

Run to, the mountain
It's here
Wormwood

verse 2
The modern summons the ancient doom
Thought you left it behind, but it waits for you
It is, it was and it is not
Behold Gog, Magog and igog

Chorus
There’s something sinister in the wind
The clouds of Megiddo gather
This is a sinister wind
Of war I’m hearing rumors

Run to, the mountain
It's here
Wormwood
Track Name: Riffborn
I saw the vision when I was a boy
Learned the primal tongue that speaks to your soul
I became an electric conjure man
It’s a saving groove I summon
I call waves of the unseen world
Overtones from the unheard word
Now I ride with the Hessians of the deep blues
Against the crawling corporate doom

Pre chorus
We live by the old ways
We know what came before
Pilgrims of the purple haze

Chorus
I’m the riff born
With the blues grimoire
Yeah, the riff born

Verse 2
Metal exiles in a grooveless land
We blast eldritch energy from our hands
Electrons flow and the earth shakes
the hipster minions quake
It’s a sonic planar rift
And a dimension shift
Straight down in the cyber abyss
The Incantation of the Iron Riff

Pre chorus
We live by the old ways
We know what came before
Pilgrims of the purple haze

Chorus
We are the riff born
With the blues grimiore
Yeah, the riff born
Track Name: Of Smoke and Fog
Verse 1
Through the portal, Psychedelonaut
Seeking truth, certain doom without
Green smoke, laden with meaning
Moordenar haze, tongue of beguiling

chorus
Of Smoke and Fog
Seek or be lost

Verse 2
I and I a dread, I wear the locks long
Tree of life, the smoke clears the fog
Thru arcanum, I hear the echoes of time
Shield of Zion, defeat the Hydra's lies

Of Smoke and Fog
Seek or be lost
Track Name: Three Minutes to Midnight
The luminous and the erudite, race to understand
Decipher the secret code, the human strand
In the hands of those who sit at Hustero’s feet
Arouse the aura of Chronos who, quickens his beat

The followers of eschatos glorify all greed
The Fifth Assessment to denounce, and affirm the creed
Ice melts into the wine, to satisfy our feast
Earth is ours to purpose now, midnight to the Beast

The rising river and rising seas, mock your torpor and disbelief
The sun is set no more to rise, three minutes to midnight

The harder they come, the harder you fall
Say they just want a taste, then take it all
Say they don’t want the body, just want the blood
Below the wounds edacious tongues, lap at the mud

They poison deep the aquifers, dig for fire in the quaking earth
Splitting shale til the needle finds, their mother’s vein is open wide
Push the poison and promise pain, is all a dream, so much to gain
Close your eyes and wake to find, it’s three minutes to midnight
Track Name: Nightcomer
Verse 1
Out on the corpseways, where the spirit and the living cross
You hold the cards in your hand, but Legba calls
Son, the dark gon’ catch you out here, you’re gonna fall

chorus
Nightcomer
Dark Lover
You chose the road
Now she brings terror

Verse 2
Wall Street snake doctor, sent you here with greed in your eyes
Hecate waits on you, Black Shuck by her side
But the beauty’s fleeting, that she brings on her midnight ride

chorus
Nightcomer
Dark Lover
You chose the road
Now she brings terror

Bridge
It won’t be the throat slit at midnight
It will be the slow blade at dawn
You’re high on your black gold
Nightcomer done took your soul
Now your black bargain gonna bring us all down
