Track Name: Stellar Maps
Laying claim to a wasteland of a planet
A desert world on the edge of these stellar maps
Left alone ever since the empire fell
A band of mercs in a 50 year old piece of scrap
Flying free if the authorities don't find them first
Dawning of a new day and the sun's coming up fast

Just a band of thieves and rogues
Or freedom fighters fighting for a sacred code
Who's to say what's the honorable road
When history favors the strong and the bold

Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake

Hit the atmo and it's planet fall
Pray for mercy that the brakes don't fail us now
Touch down on a good forsaken rock in a desolate void
Engines off and the air lock's sealed
Open the hatch, new planet's revealed
Some come in peace
Some come to rape, pillage and steal

Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake

Lost in a celestial field
Where did the others go?
Where did our brothers go?
When did we lose our way?
An empire laid to waste, through atrophy and decay

Flung farther into the great unknown
Past all the charted worlds
Into Elysian Fields
A new beginning is beginning here
Like a star explodes in which we place all hope

Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake
Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake
Track Name: Pon Farr
I feel a fire burning deep inside
Blood fever burning my soul
Amok Time running again
No satiating this demon within
No quarter, love or die
Koon-ut Kalifee, a fight to the end

My friend, oh Captain the hand's been dealt
Murder by ritual designed
Orders on high
Though logic deems this a necessary evil
Evolution built us this way
Called upon by ancient decree

There's a battle raging inside of me
Front lines of my sanity
Buried emotions surfacing again
Seven year cycle ends and begins

Dakh orfikkel aushfamalur shaukash fi'alfa mazhlv
Sha'koshtri korselvel bal'elkhrul-aklelbuhl t'Kolinahr

I feel a fire burning deep inside
Blood fever burning my soul
A fight till the end

There's a battle raging inside of me
Front lines of my sanity
Buried emotions surfacing again
Seven year cycle ends and begins
There's a battle raging inside of me
Front lines of my sanity
Buried emotions surfacing again
Seven year cycle ends and begins
Track Name: The Silence & The Scream
I am a robot, I am an android
I'm just a program that looks just like me
Nobody notices, nobody sees
They all seem to think I'm exactly what I seem

I'm an assassin, I am a bullet
I am the darkness creeping up behind you
I've done the equations, I've run the routines
I know all the steps between the silence & the scream

There's no compensation
There's no revelation
I'm just the assignment given me
I'm just a reflection
Seeking perfection
Never quite sure just what I've seen

Nobody sees me, I'm just an illusion
Wrapped in the guise of someone else's dream
I'm not very pretty, I'm not very clean
But in the end the ends all justify the means

There's no compensation
There's no revelation
I'm just the assignment given me
I'm just a reflection
Seeking perfection
Never quite sure just what I've seen

Am I an animal?
Seek and destroy
Am I the last hope for freedom?
Am I death knocking at your door?
Cold calculations hang in the air
No difference between right and wrong
No difference a difference could make anyway


There's no compensation

Am I death knocking at your door?
