Karakoram 04:37
I am the slate of lost emotion, I am the face of blank despair That which crushes your spirit and body In this cold and rarified air. I will take my tithe: the one in four! You will pay the price: one in four! I am the king of snow and stone, I am the peak of deadly force, That which claws the skin from your bones As you traverse this dreadful course. I will toll your lives: the one in four! You will leave behind: one in four! I loom Massive and foreboding Taunting you to try your courage. Unyielding, immutable, indiscriminate. I am my god and I am my temple And you cannot 'conquer' me. You cannot conquer me! Now, you are in The Death Zone I rob you of your senses, I strip you of conceit And then I sweep you to your doom... I am the Savage Mountain!

I feel the weight Of ancestors on my shoulders Like their doom depends On the choices that I make. Observations from far horizons oppress me I cannot bear these expectations – set me free! One hundred generations, A hundred thousand souls Long for continuation... Can you feel them watching you? Can you feel them watching YOU? Heavy is the burden Of forlorn hopes and forgone dreams Passed down to me Through the genes of time. A waterfall echoes through the ages (deafens me) I can almost feel their exhortations – leave me be! One hundred generations, A hundred thousand souls Long for continuation... Can you feel them watching you? Can you feel them watching YOU? I feel this weight Ancestral weight Crushing me.

Dark Harvest 06:17
Forty years have passed since you laid the island lifeless In the night we slip ashore and gather earth and irony. Now we have the weapons to challenge your indifference So choose your reparations, or rapid education. We are the Dark Harvest We are the earth and sea, We are the death angels We are the memory: We are the Dark Harvest Commando! We are the Dark Harvest Commando! We are the Dark Harvest Commando! We are the Earth's vengeance come for you… We've come for you. The earth is sick, the soil's stained with this injustice! We have come to balance the scales: as you reaped so shall we sow. Anthrax is the weapon by which you will sicken So choose your course of remedy or choose instead to die... We are the Dark Harvest We are the earth and sea, We are the death angels We are the memory: We are the Dark Harvest Commando! We are the Dark Harvest Commando! We are the Dark Harvest Commando! We are the Earth's vengeance come for you…

Black Bison 07:48
I see my God as he rises from the ashes and the dirt – Baleful and full of hate! I see my God and his horns are full of promised hurt, His eyes are burning coals. No herd of mountains has half this force To shatter your dreams and strip you of your hope. And I am trampled underhoof by the weight of this year, My body and soul are broken down in the wake of the year. Juggernaut of flesh Massive flanks drip pitch, And he comes like Death And he comes like Death. Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me! Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me! I see my God as he floods the plains of destiny With the bile of intent. I see my God and his hooves are stained with mortal men, Malice hangs in the fog of his breath. No lunar eclipse is half this dark – It crushes your will and seeps into your heart. And I am ground down to grist by the stone of this year, I’m shredded and then I’m scattered wide in the storm of the year. Juggernaut of flesh Massive flanks drip pitch, And he comes like Death And he comes like Death. Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me! Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me! I see my God And his eyes have no mercy: My life is not sacred And I am not immortal And I am not immortal.

My hands are coupled with the cold, black earth and The chill of night is clasped around my bones; The strength of Autumn fails and now expires and For months the dark will now outlast the day... I wait, with fear (I wield the bronze and steel) To sight the pale, weak Sun (I wear the Rowan's mark) The Goddess makes her wishes known (And the feather of the crow) In the bleeding of the sky. The crops are failing, my people fade On our Southern border, we are assailed, My eyes are shut to my Second Sight and The spirits of our Dead have all abandoned me. My vigil is my own I'm King of the Wasting Throne. The Solstice Sun will seal my fate (Here comes the Dawn, here comes the Dawn). A bloody Sun will seal my fate (Here comes the Dawn, I feel my spirit break). My eyes are burned by the strength of revelation As my fickle Wife betrays me to my death; I see the Coffin Ships, I see the Famine But they drag me to the bog for sacrifice... Slice off my teats (I am the King no more) And hack at my body bared (with violence break the past) Tie a rope around my neck (and chain my spirit here) Then choke me 'til I die. Into the peat I pitch and then I sink One hundred fighting generations Curse this restless place, Embalmed, condemned I haunt this barren land Forgotten and alone, my sorrow knows no end. Two thousand years have passed, Exhumed by time, In the air I am released To find my peace at last: My spirit has been freed! * 3

I feel the poison seeping from my bones again Slowly, these milky clouds expand and rise Dissolving into my bloodstream, carried by the current of anger Like sorcery, it slowly picks me apart! I am uncoupled – I am adrift And what was once there before Has been eclipsed (Eclipsed! Eclipsed!) And now my breath is short, my chest compressed, I look down and my hands, they shake, My thought’s a fugue, reason’s refused; I’m choking as I’m sliding down the spiral staircase… I feel confusion permeate my flesh again Unsettled emotions stir like bloody sediment My mental pathways clogged with fear, buried by the future I am collapsing, I am falling apart… I am disturbed and I am sick And the life I used to build on Has left me bereft (Bereft! Bereft!) And now my breath is short, my chest compressed, I look down and my hands, they shake. My thought’s a fugue, reason’s refused; I’m choking as I’m sliding down the spiral staircase… And, at its foot, I see her haggard face White against the gloom, shrouded by a veil And she beckons me on To join her madness. And she beckons me on… And she beckons me on… And she beckons me on…

Lost in an instant A brief blinding flash of time Pain overwhelms all senses Disorientated, Lost and disjointed Tumbling over and falling down The iron grip of a monster crushes my neck and spine And as I hit the ground on all fours… I am roaring Roaring I am roaring I am fucking roaring! I am the primal bear that hides within You whom have attacked me, you will rue this day. I am the primal bear that hides within You whom have attacked me, you will rue this day. Lost in an instant, a brief blinding flash of time Thought flees this brutal assault I am reduced, base and unmanned The fierce surge of the present is all that matters. I am the primal bear that hides within You whom have attacked me, you will rue this day. I am the primal bear that hides within You whom have attacked me, you will rue this day. You will rue this day!
