Track Name: A Brotherhood
Ride till you hit the yard
reign till the thunder stops
gods shed their skin and all
my doubting of an underworld

I'm not the only one
J'Skaar's not the only one
to hold out on numbers of
those in our brotherhood

pale of a fallen star
shrine with a mirrored door
she shrugged her shoulders
in the ending of an ugly truth

nearly novice alchemists
call yourself an Argonians?
you've all but contributed
to genocide of Aleyids

province of Cyrodiil
minions of Akatosh
when will we live again
sheltered by the nine divine

a bloody murder rears
3 alembic potions splashed
it conjures a comet from the
ash within the cosmospheres

attacks from master sneaks
ignores the armor class
of the victim
when the master is invisible

this time the market's mine
there's no way of turning now
the cold and the burden
cant hold me here for any 'mount

they fell from their horse
theyll fall off their mustangs
theyll fall to the floor
theyll fall from their mustangs
and hang
Track Name: Embers
I know
I know everything…
you are one
of those kind of people

where all those other men had you pegged
for something
or somebody else

but I see she's in touch with who
she really wants to be

and there were never enough of them
opening your door for you

I never had my chance to tell you
I'd carry the world for you

and that ring on your finger
would take the scale they weigh the whales with
and the weight of my love
I do hope its enough

your face
echos in place
over and over, all weekend over

your face echoes in place
over and over
all weakened over
Track Name: Eastern Medicine
Lanterns swaying, dead and broken
all was calm in early hour
rain return and brings along
a soul from frozen harbor on the lake

and I walked that path by morning
still I be guided only
by epic fog
and what I found would haunt me still today

I opened up but held release till I
load and listen the angels wail
a clouded sky

she often mask her stories
she always high and lonely
as she profess
the legacies and futures held for man

opium was key to open doors
buried deep in the maze of mind
her shrouded eyes

everyday as she had said
she always came, her normal hour
everyday she call, I answer
we both the same
until only one remains standing…

…and I watch her head roll.

call it superstition
you reduce your panic
its a new suspcion
of a paper dragon

cant you hear me calling?
can you please forgive me?
are you even listening?
can you even hear me?
