Essence of Fire - Claret Ash Thus torn a portal is born as the sky now bleeds The darkness awoken as the light hits a seed In a world so twisted (Twisted) a new future is born With nothing left (Nothing left to show this world) but self realisations or to mourn In darkness i was hidden Clarity shun by my self worth Through despair comes forth vomit of reason. In darkness i was hidden Clarity shun by my self worth Revealing my reality shattered through this illuminated season. Thus torn a portal is born as the sky now bleeds The darkness awoken as the light hits a seed The Essence of Fire is here! The dreary notion of your finite breaths (These) ideals overbearing like they'll tear apart your chest The fire once departed now illuminated fear In life's endless trail, your exit nears Confined to comforts Unknown to change Emerging from darkness Evolved consciousness The separatist commands the fire inside In a world so twisted (Twisted) a new future is born With nothing left (Nothing left to show this world) but self realisations or to mourn

Devolution 05:44
Devolution - Claret Ash A sense to - address the resolution for the narcissistic - narrow minded The impact - from a dying breed Failing to see - It's themselves Synergy within this world Ripped, stripped torn [apart] Between rebuilds the cold has settled This is your absolution the cold has settled This is your absolution Attached, entwined, i see your demise A race etched, with the face of neglect Empathy, the river flowing down stream and ever onward For the trees help you breathe and exist Forests burn for industry And suffocate us the cold has settled This is your absolution Those that dwell inside the darkness, sometimes commit blindly Change is often an allocated enemy. Will you grow as the world grows? Will you plant a tree or even help one grow for the people of tomorrow? Or will you turn your back and head deeper into the nightfall? Synergy within this world Ripped, stripped and torn Between rebuilds the cold has settled This is your absolution

The Noose 06:17
The Noose - Claret Ash Pandora's child Opens the box and succumbs to greed Fill your maw, fill your pockets Fill your heart till it starts to bleed Your midas touch Poisons all that surrounds you These golden shackles pull you under You weave a noose Around your throat To pull yourself up to the sun You weave your noose Until you choke to stay in the light of the sun As Icarus you fly Burning out your eyes Reaching for that golden light You weave a noose Around your throat To pull yourself up to the sun You weave your noose Until you choke to stay in the light of the sun As the eclipse Darkens the sky You fall to earth Your hollow promises turn to ash in the mire Breathe in, Suffocate, Exhale, Regret

Plague Bearer - Claret Ash The creation of life (through technology) The trepidation of death (and damnation) This is the downfall This is the descent The altercation and preservation Perspectives declined for a shadow transpires The transgression into an inevitable fire The plague bearer The omission of silence The plague bearer The human are a virus Neglect of compassion Have torn the wings of veneration Once flown to great heights Now crawling Neglect of compassion Have torn the wings of veneration Once flown to great heights Reclusion for survival This is the downfall This is the descent A culture of disdain and hauteur - (The plague bearer) Erodes the fabric of life - (The omission of silence) Scorned, the earth now scorched - (The plague bearer) The flame does flicker away - (The human are a virus) The altercation and preservation Perspectives declined for a shadow transpires The transgression into an inevitable fire This is the downfall This is our descent This is our Paradise Lost
5.
The Gyre 08:11
The Gyre - Claret Ash Succumb to the night The revolution of reset Tomorrow is a new day Another chance at change A small reflection Upon ones self Causes the ripple of permutation The wind of evolution is here And it's time to reflect A convergence of filth That poisons all life In the shadow below The Gyre churns and revolves Shame forms a blade That cuts through all life In the shadow below The Gyre churns and revolves A desolate wasteland A floating island An eye of an enemy Spewing forth your reality The scar on the world Self inflicted casualty Speaking the truth you don't want to hear

Behold the Chalice - Claret Ash Behold the sequence of events that causes your moment of decline The burden that I hold from a masterpiece of many The visions of atrocity - The face of reality Pulled into the darkness - Through no fault of your own The visions of atrocity - The face of reality Pulled into the oblivion - You've always known Your freedom has receded and now becoming a conclusion To satisfy their delusions through the burning hallucinations Your stance so tall but overshadowed by a heavy burden Small as the lone wolves without a final stand Death by association The blood is on your hands No empathy, nor compassion For you or your degradation Beheld in the chalice of great expanse The poisoned liquid laced with depravity The scourge of masses to burn it down Illuminating this darkness To fill the void of emptiness Illuminate this darkness
7.
Like Tears in Rain - Claret Ash Cast aside for their abated weakness Sublime compassion diluted into a watery grave Humanity with such inhumane deliverance Strength in numbers has led to my wandering ideals Never known - Never felt Never mind - It never ends Never realise - Nevertheless Never mind - It never ends As their tears cascade I wipe away With my caring hands As they shift their consciousness As it falls towards the ground The tears, your tears slowly penetrate The earth, the tree, under my feet The strength in numbers now cause a flood As the tears fall towards the ground The tears, your tears slowly penetrate The earth, the tree, where I lay A paradise degraded and destroyed Fed liquidised compassion I struggle to maintain an empathetic outlook Upon the self destructive masses As the decline begins to unfold
8.
Vicissitude 07:18
Vicissitude - Claret Ash You are born blind Stunted growth in body and mind The bane of all existence Like a worm you're disregarded Modify and change - To eliminate this rage Modify and change - You're the cause of great distress My vision of this world A shadow cast from humanity's disgrace Descending to the ground Beyond all thoughts of redemption Renounce and surrender ideals The reclamation of morals The restoration of life lost Of dreams once worn now stolen A scourge of misfortune From the burden of mistrust
9.
Fragility of Existence - Claret Ash One small change You’re unprepared This is your end to all One last breath Before the world is torn I see blood Drenched with fear Flowing from your veins I feel your bones Breaking within your body Describe to me Paint the picture of your future Your fragility of existence The disillusion now seen as rage As we look towards the Monarchy As the eagles fly and leave behind The crumbled remains within your mind You've fell in line and sold your spine For the weakness is within you The deceit entrapped within your self The fragility of existence The disillusion as nowhere is safe As we look towards the sky The leaves fall as life fades As cities crumble into shattered remains You've fell inside as the cracks emerge The ground has parted with earthquakes The world is torn and man divided The fragility of your existence

The Great Moth that Swallowed the Sun - Claret Ash Anthropocentric greed Coalesces into spears of light As the moth descends It swallows the sun we birthed so bright Blinding and sickening Though the fires die our skin still burns and sears Day turns into night - The glowing holocaust is here Hollow and cancerous Ionic flames Pierce our souls and the great moth looks on Ready to devour our remains I am become death - Destroyer of Worlds Bend to my will and burn Leave nothing - Scour the earth And after the bombs have fallen and man is but a memory The chrysalis will open spilling forth the will of the Earth In reclamation (of the stars) I am become death - Destroyer of Worlds I am the dream - Now awake and alive We stole the essence of stars And with this gift we made our spears To destroy, not to create In reclamation of the seas In reclamation of the wilds In reclamation of the snows In reclamation of life

The Great Adjudication - Claret Ash The moon, the sky, the great divide The Great Adjudication The moon, the sky the great divide The birds cascade and in turn fly high As the rivers overflow with fury As he emerges from the shadows of old A creation of mud and twigs takes hold Natural selection such beauty is gone Nature's selection your life foregone I see the damage By your hands the cause I see the future torn apart Forlorn The Great Adjudication - You've crossed the line Natural selection such beauty is gone The Great Adjudication - The world is torn Nature's selection your life foregone Twisting and turning And failing I yearn For this nightmare to resolve For someone to stand as I kneel To bring an end to it all
12.
Betrayal am I - Claret Ash I stand and deliver Nature's retort The rebirth of a new world Revolt to reset existence Betrayal am I as my fury unfolds The ground now shaking from my screams The rivers cry from the neglect of pride As the echoes mirror your failure The darken sky a reflection of the inner sanctum As the ravens and vultures pick at your carcass The firestorm The drought The deluge The desecration
