Track Name: Sullen Guard
The moon betrayed the sky and screeched upon its throne.
A voice emerged with pain with fear and disbelief.
It seems a gathering has caused those dire emotions (a small commotion of reasons).
Then Chaos Spoke.
A shriek of absent words that reeked of burning flesh and bone
The smoke engulfed with flames.
A sacred pyre, that glimpsed on the tarnished serenity.
It was sour and bitter, the taste of serenity’s lips.
How Chaos Claimed Her Heart?
How Chaos Claimed Her Heart?

Unearthly souls with baleful sight emerged this painful scene.
A sullen guard following orders from their king.
Their eyes lived no fear nor witnessed any pain.
They only prayed on the living and the living did live with their hate.

The moon itself surrendered to their cause
And forced the sky to drop its tears in awe.
How Chaos claimed their Heart?
How Chaos claimed their Heart?

“A Sullen Guard, blindly following their king”
