Track Name: Godspeed, Vanguards
The burning empires our past
Pray to the winds
Memories made of cindered ash
Never forgetting the reason
Never forgiving the past
Never believing in freedom
This great storm will build a throne
These first Vanguards will lead us home
Vanguards lead us home
Vanguards lead us home

In earth's final breath
We sailed the blackened sea
Upon the wings of our god machine
This great storm will build a throne
These first Vanguards will lead us home
Born to flee
Never forgetting the reason
Never forgiving the past
Never believing in freedom
Vanguards lead us home
Vanguards lead us home

Tear the horizon
We bring the gift of life
At any moment
We will breathe the air of our new world
Those born above the clouds
Prepare yourself for solid ground
The air of our new world
Here we stand in the space between
A dream and reality

This great storm will build a throne
These first Vanguards will lead us home
Born to flee
Never forgetting the reason
Never forgiving the past
Never believing in freedom

Godspeed
Track Name: Creation Level Event
V1
To vanquish fear and the loss of life
Reject the thought of needless sacrifice
A shapeless enemy, bound by a linear form
As time drains away, our purpose is born

With faces of stone
We prepare for the cold
With layers of steel
We stand stronger than most
Flesh joined by rivets
Without, we would fold
The weight of the sky
Would cripple our bones

Now, repel into darkness
Venture forth and abandon all fear
Succumb to the mist of this ghostly frontier

The gateway to amend our past
Gather yourself and decompress
Prepare for countless days without rest
Vanguards, time draws near
Use steel as your shield
Use hope as your spear

With faces of stone
We prepare for the cold
With layers of steel
We stand stronger than most
Flesh joined by rivets
Without, we would fold
The weight of the sky
Would cripple our bones

Now, repel into darkness
Venture forth and abandon all fear
Succumb to the mist of this ghostly frontier
Track Name: Impact Proxy
Vanguards, we conquer the sky and land -
In search of the tomb made of glass and sand

Once found, we shall carve a path
Retracing the steps of decades past

Daybreak, only moments away
The Centauri stars arise into grey

These towering clouds flicker and wane
Rays of light connect with the rain

As we fight the new found gravity
The storm is building
Gaining intensity

Stars erased from the shattered sky
Shrouding the new world we glorify

A journey inward may end in defeat
For life as we know it was made by machines

As time moves forward into morning light
Take heart as we advance with broken sight

To break the chains of orbit
We will sacrifice our blood and forfeit

Countless days and endless toil
For rain, air and fertile soil

As we fight the new found gravity
The storm is building
Gaining intensity

Stars erased from the shattered sky
Shrouding the new world we glorify

A journey inward may end in defeat
For life as we know it was made by machines

As time moves forward into morning light
Take heart as we advance with broken sight
Track Name: The Synesthesia Signal
Hear the leaves with the breeze
Clouds form from a distant sea
With rain comes light
Upon incandescent Flora

Captivating our eyes
This Horizon only breeds humility
Oh, how fragile is the signal

I never could believe
The era of machines
Would deliver us from afar
We have been reborn
I never could believe
The era of machines
Would deliver us from afar
Reborn to conquer the stars

Fragments of old earth
Air, rain and soil
Feel the storm evolving
Guiding us into the shadows

Captivating our eyes
This Horizon only breeds humility
Oh, how fragile is the signal

I never could believe
The era of machines
Would deliver us from afar
We have been reborn
I never could believe
The era of machines
Would deliver us from afar
Reborn to conquer the stars

Captivating our eyes
This Horizon only breeds humility
Oh, how fragile is the signal

I never could believe
The era of machines
Would deliver us from afar
We have been reborn
I never could believe
The era of machines
Would deliver us from afar
Reborn to conquer the stars

Fragments of old earth
Air, rain and soil
Feel the storm evolving
Guiding us into the shadows
Track Name: Unearthing The Daedalian Ancient
The cold storm fades
Lost to the crystal horizon
Clouds shattered and torn asunder
The distant call from our God machine
Mistaken for wails of waning thunder

Echoes batter the canyon walls
A faint Titan Roar
Felling stones from on high
The soil fractured and dry

Carve us a way
Honored Pathfinder
Claim this land in vain

Cursed are those bound by time
The remnants of rain form illusions of ice

The fog turning to ash
A life source born
From synthetic force
Bring life to this world
Rebuilding memories of earth
Through organic war

As ripples travel through standing water
Tremors below
Repeating in order
Sowing the seeds upon conquered lands
Safeguarding the survival of man

Echoes batter the canyon walls
A faint Titan Roar
Felling stones from on high
The soil fractured and dry

Carve us a way
Honored Pathfinder
Claim this land in vain

Cursed are those bound by time
The remnants of rain form illusions of ice

Echoes batter the canyon walls
A faint Titan Roar
Felling stones from on high
The soil fractured and dry

Carve us a way
Honored Pathfinder
Claim this land in vain

Cursed are those bound by time
The remnants of rain form illusions of ice

The fog turning to ash
A life source born
From synthetic force
Bring life to this world
Rebuilding memories of earth
Through organic war
Track Name: The Tellurian Pathos
Those below are destined to be
Consumed by human fragility
The moment between cause and effect
A violent reminder for those who left

Enyo's colossus, a journey within
Becoming immortal from the blood of her kin
Eternal life, living within
Banshees will shield Alithea's twin

In time, two worlds will be born
Then banish their land
Turn their world into the orbital forge

Most will endure this cruel decay
Gasping for life
Grasping for days

As our legions divide
We lay claim to the sky
In time, our shadows will turn day into night
We seek an end to the essence of pain

Our flesh will dissolve in our search to evolve
Organic forms will fail us all
We seek an end to the essence of pain

Too soon for war, let them grovel and horde
Cepheon eyes search for Empyrean shores
Watch how they grovel so feeble and cold
They mirror their masters
Traitors and whores

In time, two worlds will be born
Then banish their land
Turn their world into the orbital forge

Most will endure this cruel decay
Gasping for life
Grasping for days

As our legions divide
We lay claim to the sky
In time, our shadows will turn day into night
We seek an end to the essence of pain

Our flesh will dissolve in our search to evolve
Organic forms will fail us all
We seek an end to the essence of pain

As our legions divide
We lay claim to the sky
In time, our shadows will turn day into night
We seek an end to the essence of pain

Our flesh will dissolve in our search to evolve
Organic forms will fail us all
We seek an end to the essence of pain
Track Name: Division Through Distance
Shadows of giants
Bring shade to the sea
Mechanical life
For all eyes to see

When you look to the heavens
Remember our plea
For lasting peace
Submit and believe

Fear us
We are the hunter of kings
Born with the blood of this titan machine
Hear us
Demons who hide and the gods that survived

As the distance continues to grow
The thunder of ancient war echoes
We come face to face with the frozen divide
In time
You will abide

The fear of control
Dividing our breed
A whirlwind of lies and ghostly deciet
As we search through the heavens
Remember our plea
For lasting peace
Submit and believe

Fear us
We are the hunter of kings
Born with the blood of this titan machine
Hear us
Demons who hide and the gods that survived

As the distance continues to grow
The thunder of ancient war echoes
We come face to face with the frozen divide
In time
You will abide

As the distance continues to grow
The thunder of ancient war echoes
We come face to face with the frozen divide
In time
You will abide
