Track Name: Ophesa's Hymn
Lady Mother, let me soak your wings
Lay your head down
Let your children weep
For we love you and there’s no greater pain
Than not being able to see you again

Lady Mother, can you hear them sing?
Lay your head down, let your children weep
For we love you and there’s no greater pain
Than not being able to see you again
Track Name: Rise of Corvinians: The First Winged Men
The blueprints in my mind,
Rapidly coming to life,
I built paradise from dirt and blood
I am steel in the breeze
I built paradise from dirt and blood
I am storm on the sea
I built paradise from dirt and blood
I am the god of kings

Stealing her womb formed the roots of our trees
Blood in her veins painted my masterpiece
Her demise contained in statues of Queens
She meant everything to me

Himmeldom rises as Ophesa falls
Himmeldom rises as Ophesa falls
Track Name: Ovn the Allfather
Three simple rules
Preach our faith
Stay within bounds
Obey the book
Obey
You are not capable of understanding his design
God’s plan is not yours to render
You will think differently when you stand before him on judgment day
We’ll pray for you

You will watch me tear open the sky
You are helpless against my foresight
I am not a pawn in someone else’s plan
I am a force you’re a fool to reprimand

UGH

I only grew without you
Without your god
Finally I’m free
Watch me survive on my own
I will be stronger alone

Fuck your code!
If I regret
At least I self-reflect

Fuck your code!
If I regret
At least I self-reflect

Blind to true fate, your life is a waste!
Blind to true fate, your life is a waste!
Blind to true fate, your life is a waste!

I am awake
I am awake
I am awake
Imagined men can’t own my life
Track Name: Nets in the Night
In the night, stitched cages drape the stars, destroying art
A string of death chokes elegance
Defiling a tribute to flawlessness

We are the cloud’s hidden treasure
The netters search to trap

Where are your courtesies?
Have you no shame?
Your princess is lost
These dreadful tales
Could be the death of Queens

You who would ignore these nets in the night
You’re lucky that you are secure from their sight
Everyone else needs to hear the truth
The likes of us, ten to one, outnumber you

We are the treasure
They hunt to bind
We are the treasure
They hunt to bind

We are the treasure
They hunt to bind
You are the treasure
They hunt to bind

In the night,
Laces wait in the dark, disfiguring hearts
A curse of sin erases origin
Collapsing a sculpture of eminence

Webs in the sky
Drain wings dry
Crates of hex
Seize happiness,
Webs in the sky
Drain wings dry
Crates of hex
Seize happiness!

Where are your courtesies?
Remember your place
Your princess is lost
These dreadful tales
Are aiding our misery

Where are your courtesies?
I’m commanding you
Your princess is lost
These dreadful tales
Are no comfort to me!

We are the treasure
They hunt to bind
We are the treasure
They hunt to bind
You are the treasure
They hunt to bind
You are the treasure
They hunt to bind
Track Name: Diisa: His Beloved, My Blood
I know it’s not my place to ask every question
I know I can’t search every avenue
But a part of me can’t stand by and sting
When no one else is bleeding

And still my biggest fear is letting go
And still my biggest fear is letting go

I know it’s not my fault that she’s missing
I know I can’t blame this commune
But a part of me can’t sit quietly
When no one else is speaking

And still my biggest fear is letting go
And still my biggest fear is letting go

I have to let go

I will search the world for you
I will search the world for you

I know it’s not my job to save her
I know I can’t do this alone
But a part of me can’t abide by uncertainty
When her life’s on the line

And still my biggest fear is letting go (X4)
