"After Lifeless Years" as written by and Josh/graham Middleton....
The truth became so clear to you, and so your faith has died
Now see what waits for you on the other side
A morbid sea of deepest black, a distant ever burning flame
With nowhere else to turn, we wander alone...forever alone
Forsaken by the God you loved, and now your love has died
No miracle will shine its light on you
So easily directed, your thoughts remain your only guide
Know you will see no truth beneath this cloak of lies
A distant ever piercing cry...so far away
Blinded by aspirations of a higher state
Wasting your life just searching for a periphery
Hold on to the thought, that it was just,
And pray for life to continue
We'll fall beyond safeties grasp
To re-emerge lifeless
Trying to break from the clutches of our death
A morbid sea of deepest black, a distant ever burning flame
A distant ever piercing cry, so far away...

    General CommentI think that, like most of these guys other songs, this is about learning the cold truth that the god you believed in is not there and finding out the world is very cruel, also this song kicks ass

    General CommentThis track is really epic and heavy. We deliberately wrote this one to be the opening track on the album. It's got everything we're about in one song, dark epic stuff, fast thrash, shredding solos, melody, big guitar riffs, ambience, singing etc. It's going to be really fun to open our sets with this one.
