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

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

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

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

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

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

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
