DISCOGRAPHY

The Coffin Train

Belly Of The Beast

It makes you feel good
Tastes so high
Creeping, numbing fingertips
As a vision passes through my mind

It takes my demands

And brings me to life
As long as I know when to bleed
I know my veins won’t feel denied

 

You’re the salt of the earth
Ascending the same
And know what you’re worth
When you suffer in the belly of the beast

Suffer
Suffer
When you suffer in the belly of the beast

Suffer
Suffer
When you suffer in the belly of the beast

Sensations run high
And apathy flows
A continuance of repentance

That cradles all indifference
It makes you feed
On chalk and gasoline
A synergy of ecstasy sparks fires

And denies relief

Let’s you know
There never was control
Diving in your secondary skin

 

You’re the salt of the earth
Ascending the same
And know what you’re worth
When you suffer in the belly of the beast

The tension in here
Is breaking the noose
A never ending calamity, anamnesis that buries you

Been there so long
Squeezing you tight
A deceptive kiss, a deathly grip
That deafens you to slit your wrists

 

You’re the salt of the earth
Ascending the same
And know what you’re worth

When you suffer in the belly of the beast

 

Suffer
Suffer
When you suffer in the belly of the beast Suffer
Suffer
When you suffer in the belly of the beast Suffer
Suffer
When you suffer in the belly of the beast Suffer
Suffer
When you suffer in the belly of the beast

Andersen/Tatler/Wilcox

The Messenger

The spirits rise in the dead man’s tomb

Worlds deprived under his name
He rides above your city
And decides if to lay down his hand
Stories are told since the dawn of days
And when it’s your time remember his name

 

You hear the words

For the last time

You hear him cry

 

I am the messenger of Death
And I keep a ledger filled with wrath

For I am your messenger of Death
And I keep a ledger with all your names

When he was born his mother died
Fate said her words, the cruelest lie
The end is only a beginning
Through the flames and the feathers damned

From whence he came the dark divine

In the purest form Death is time

You say your words
One last time, and even then

You hear him cry

I am the messenger of Death
And I keep a ledger filled with wrath

For I am your messenger of Death
And I keep a ledger with all your names

I am the messenger of Death
And I keep a ledger filled with wrath

For I am your messenger of Death
And I keep a ledger with all your names

Andersen/Tatler/Wilcox

The Coffin Train

A canvas made of skin

And painted by their tears

In the colours of the damned
The lies will tell the truth

In the suffocating lands

When the children die in the womb

It’s an eye for an eye
On the scales of the coffin train

Seek redemption, repent and
Sell the divine’s dead love
The world hangs as a blind man
He writes in ink of blood and betrays the words

Their history paved with bones

And the horizon will unleash

Another chapter that’s buried in ghosts
As time abandons youth

And their pillars fall enraged
A fate so infinitely mans

It’s an eye for an eye
On the scales of the coffin train

 

Seek redemption, repent and
Sell the divine’s dead love
The world hangs as a blind man
He writes in ink of blood and betrays the words

And the world is set ablaze on a coffin train

And though all man is to blame
They’re the ones who deserve to die
But we die first

And so it goes the fear it eats us up from inside

And in the end we’re euthanising all human kind

And then again time is a’running out
For the crows are a’calling

 

Before the dawn an empire might see their demise

At the hands of the young with the fire in their eyes

And in the end time will run out
For the coffins are awaiting

Get off the coffin train
Just get off the coffin train
Get off the coffin train
Yeah just take down the coffin train

Take down the coffin train!

Andersen/Tatler/Wilcox

Shades of Black

The voices cry for a broken spirit
Whispers ‘rest in peace now’ weeping for him in secret
The night breaks through the clouds as witness
To the sorrow that’s unforgiving and the light slowly diminishes

As I lie here and float in between
The shades of black
I look upon the stars yours is brightest of them all
I need a long time to grieve and replenish emotion

 

Your words are sewn into our hearts bereaved
Fuse together pieces while we’re holding in all our tears
The lights break through the dark to listen
As the songs ring unforgiving and our voices are undiminishing

And as I lie here and float in between
The shades of black
I look upon the stars yours is brightest of them all
I need a long time to grieve and replenish emotions

 

Rusty nails on the ground now you’re free of your cage
And the sound of your voice will forever live on
In the strength of your words we’ll remember your fire
From the earth into stone and through bones we live and we die Live and die

Andersen/Tatler/Ashton/Wilcox

The Sleeper Prelude

Beware the voice that crushes steel
For when the wicked rise and seal the earth
The young will stand to bring about the reckoning

In our darkest hour let them hear you roar
Let them hear your rage
We will shake the earth, we will shatter their walls

Bring us out of darkness
The task borders on impossible
But from among you giants will emerge
Set fire to the skies and bring justice to the worlds

Andersen/Wilcox

The Sleeper

Staring into the dark
Cold hands wrapped around the heart
A quiet war and a hidden truth
The ashes fallen to the ground reveals a destiny

Holy mother’s poison needle trials my fears

The flesh erodes into the bone
Epiphany slumbers at the seams within
It echoes to Shai Hulud

Prophecy rising from the sands

The keepers of the lands

 

The sleeper must awaken

The sleeper that’s deep inside

The sleeper must awaken
For the sleeper can never die

Stare into the womb
Drink the bile and tread through dreams no more

Holy worms will split the earth and blacken the sun

The witches told the spice must flow
Let the voices crush and break the temples in you

And give into Shai Hulud

Prophecy rises from the sands

The people of the lands

 

The sleeper must awaken

The sleeper that’s deep inside

The sleeper must awaken
For the sleeper can never die

 

And from the depths of the moon
A name will echo through time
As the giants rise up from the earth
To end the silent war under the golden sky

And they will carry justice to the nations

 

Father the sleeper’s awakened

The sleeper that’s deep inside The sleeper must awaken
For the sleeper can never die The sleeper must awaken

The sleeper that’s deep inside The sleeper must awaken
For the sleeper can never die

Andersen/Tatler/Wilcox

Death By Design

Out of the furnace and into the fire
It’s a cruel game of death and desire
You can say his name and preach to the choir

When your days end it’s a one way smile

I’m heading down

I’m wrapped in fire sails
I’m coming down

To be back with all my friends

Feel the heat I’m satisfied
There’s no defeat in death by design

Feel the heat and testify
Feed the fire in death by design

Out of the furnace and into the streets
It’s a cruel game with the days on repeat
You can play the game or set it all alight
Match the scars from your birth with a one way smile

I’m heading down

I'm blessed in my betrayals
I’m coming down

Yeah to be back with all my friends

Feel that heat I’m satisfied
There’s no defeat in death by design

Feel the heat and testify
Feed the fire in death by design

 

I’m going down in a blaze of light

Unlike them I never said no to life

I’m going down

 

Oh into the furnace

Oh where I’m sanctified

So feel that heat I’m satisfied

There’s no defeat in death by design

Feel the heat and testify
We feed the fire in death by design

Oh I’m going down I’m going down
I’m going down, down
I’m going down I’m going down

I’m going down

Andersen/Tatler/Wilcox

Serrated Love

A thousand years have passed since I walked upon her shores

A thousand tears have cracked the salty face of this earth
And is there no one else whom can walk upon her shores

And to gaze into her pearls is to live forevermore

To reach in the eye of your masters

To see past the limits and feel her

Supreme love serrated heart

And then seek her timeless love

Now her constellations are fading and abandoned
The dead lights imploding that burn up in her sun
They’re calling out your name while her tears they pierce the night And when you fall into her world then you’ll live forevermore

And reach in the eye of your masters

To see through the limits and feel a

Supreme love serrated heart

And then seek her timeless love

Whispers of the end cinders in her hair

As we follow her down below, love

Her kisses drifting through the stars
As her love sings loud

And feel a supreme love serrated heart And then seek her timeless love

Love...

Andersen/Tatler/Abberley/Ashton/Wilcox

The Phoenix

While the crows are circling my bones

And I’m crucified upon their stones
I’ll take the time to send off a gallows grin

Before unleashing the lions resting within

So follow me, into the death of this reflection

Follow me, the journey starts with who you are

And I’m dying... Dying while I’m dreaming

And I’m dying... Dying to rise like the phoenix

As the blood it drips down from my crown
And I’m counting down ’til hell is born
I’ve given death the chance to comfort me
Before she steals my breath and takes me beneath

So follow me, into the death of your deception

Follow me, the journey ends with who you are

And I’m dying... Dying while I’m dreaming

And I’m dying... Dying to rise like the phoenix

So follow me, into the death of your confession

Follow me, the journey answers to who you are

And I’m dying... Dying while I’m dreaming

And I’m dying... Dying to rise like the phoenix

Ohh...tired now
Tired from this resurrection
For the lions, the lions are restless

They crave to be released

 

So follow me, into the depth of your inception

Follow me, the circle’s only just begun

Andersen/Abberley/Ashton/Wilcox

Until We Burn

Born to be kings but defeated by time
Black Country dreams they were leased for a while

But the way to glory and love is through pain
Chasing a world on the ladders made of golden tomes

 

Until the end the lights will shine
After it ends the songs survive

Hope is burned into the shadows of our veins

Though the road winds far over the earth
Into the sun until we burn

Landslide of demons one poisoned ego burning bright

The change of the seasons lightning releases new fire

But the way to glory and love is through pain
Chasing a world on the ladders made of golden tomes

Until the end the lights will shine

After it ends the songs survive

Hope is burned into the shadows of our veins

Though the road winds far over the earth
Into the sun until we burn

Until the end the lights will shine

After it ends the songs survive

Hope is burned into the shadows of our veins

Though the road winds far over the earth
Into the sun until we burn

Engraved in the songs and the words

Forevermore until we burn

Andersen/Tatler/Wilcox
