about

The Corps Vancouver, British Columbia

As darkness slithered unnoticed into 2814 posing as music, few were aware of the ever dimming light. But there were four souls who saw through the lies. The gods they had served for years, still on the battle field, will someday relent with pride and pass down the emerald torch. These four will charge their rings and make a stand till the deaf hear the light. ... more

Track Name: Prime
Look at what these animals have made
a universe where just the righteous pay
the frozen memories, of the loved ones in my dreams,
keep screaming,crying, please rescue me,
for the friends I've laid to rest, get a chance at one last breath
I'll save them all, you'll see
The mockingbird, destined to die
if I should fail, despair arrives
so close your ears, and shut your eyes
I hope we sleep
Have you watched something grow just to die
and live with yourself if you didn't try
to take it all away, maybe for a day
believe me when I say I'll make them pay
and if the sun should rise again, Rao has to take me in
I'll save them all you'll see
The mockingbird destined to die
If I should fail, despair arrives
so close your ears and shut your eyes
I hope we sleep tonight
Track Name: Pillar of Salt
The scent of fear was clouding up the room
overjoyed the moment I caught you
my fingers dancing, closing on her neck
Jason screaming, leave her out of it

I shall rip out her heart with my hands
and expose her insides cause I can

A pool of blood shot leaking from her mouth
I held my laugh in, almost belting out
I hope this burns inside his memories
the light from her eyes was all that was set free

The storm has just begun
it rains on everyone
I still find her flesh
under my nails
I am blessed
Track Name: 1983
It's too dark in this water
and I cant see a thing
three devils around me
they want me to sing
the last time I saw light
no chance to fight fair
with holes in my wings
and red in the air
As I look to the stars
I start to forget
this cage not Coast City
my war not done yet
with coffee break over
Blue Beetles taste best
foundations complete
the gaslines come next

(1459)
Every drop of blood, sweat, that left this shell was worth it
(the jungle grows a darker green)
To watch them fade away,
(Black Racer drawing nearer)
I've seen a Spectre in the chapel
(but he's not)
He's not here for me

Now it's opening day
hardly sitting still
let me give you the tour
follow if you will
my body's been broken
but my will saw me through
I may never see home
but I built one for you
Track Name: Killing Joke
I'm being placed in a seat, but, tell me, just how did I get here,
a couple flashes pass, I try to hold one, but, it is not clear,
the one thing that I know is waking up inside of me,
it touches my stomach , I'm pretty sure it won't be set free?,
just don't be shocked when I am locked up, you won't find a key

And a knock comes late at night, the devil plain in sight,
I see the tears in your eyes as I fade,
And after what he did to you, and with nothing I could do,
the film keeps playing over in my head.

The ride is almost through, I curl up and wait for the ending,
I wonder if he's thinking 'when he gets free, where will he send me?'
The truth is I am glad he wasted so much time on this,
he took a shot at two targets, this one, he surely will miss,
I may be going mad, but revenge, will turn into bliss,


And a knock comes late at night, the devil plain in sight,
I see the tears in your eyes as I fade,
And after what he did to you, and with nothing I could do,
the film keeps playing over in my head.
Over in my head. over in my head......
