Barbaric Lust (Love Driver) (Blake/Struzzi) You know the feeling when your blood is burning Something inside tearing and yearning Her hand can bring it down But you want a drive No time to find a place that’s warm Lay you down right on the floor Don’t stop me now ‘Cause I’ve got to explode No sense in holding it back Coming down on the attack The lust in me burns right through your soul It’s my pleasure to bring you pain Call of the wild will drive you insane The beast shall rise and drive him up to your door Love Driver Love Driver Love Driver Make you purr… Love Driver Love Driver Love Driver Ravage her! You know the feeling when your blood is burning Something inside tearing and yearning Her hand can bring it down But you want a drive No time to find a place that’s warm Lay you down right on the floor Don’t stop me now ‘Cause I’ve got to explode Love Driver Love Driver Love Driver Make you purr… Love Driver Love Driver Love Driver Ravage her!

The Passage 04:30
The Passage (Blake/Struzzi) Eons of darkness Hinder his eye Valley held no hope For one who sought to find Somber trees have hidden Truth of omni And he is asking why Oh, asking why Gazing beyond His valley’s edge Often times he wondered What was meant Oh, by the dream Oh, by the dream In his eyes a different light What was it he saw? Knowing now what he knew then Beckons to us all In his eyes a different light What was it he saw? Knowing now what he knew then Beckons to us all Pathway the chosen Through a cleansing rain Perceptions lead him onward Transcend the vale’s domain Surmount the sacred spire Into azure skies Forevermore Forevermore In his eyes a different light What was it he saw? Knowing now what he knew then Beckons to us all He stands almighty Above a mortal sea A blazing flame Let all take heed Wallow not within Timid shallow depths Raise aloft your hands To seek enlightenment And by the means Analogy Bestow this tale Of all mankind…

Perish & Die 03:50
Perish and Die (Blake/Struzzi) Carve another masterpiece upon your heathen flesh Hidden mask of lurking fear revealing face of death Prepare to face your destiny death unending fate No escape from the grave for you it’s too late Fall to the flames of the eternal rage Face of death destroying every essence of your mind The prophecy of death your skull is now my shrine Epitaph of mortal hate mirroring eternal pain Succomb now to your fears for you life’s all in vain Fall to the flames of the eternal rage Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Legacy of fire claims your only mercy death Painted horror drawing down sword within your neck Fear for your life mortal death has begun Skeletal decay tool of fate yet undone Death in the flames of the eternal rage Demon’s gaze falls down upon unstaring eyes Foreboding in the darkness of evil designs Prelude to that which you feared all your life Descending rune blade blood reflecting moonlight Death in the flames of the eternal rage Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death forever mockery of that which you believe Soul has left body but the spirit’s still alive The pain ends and yet you suffer eternally I will never let you go Death is the key! Slave to the flames of the eternal rage Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die Death shall mock thee Perish and Die
