Track Name: Of Human Bondage
What is this death?
Spreading through the people
The corruption of the air

Light your fires and ward off the evils
Pray to God to heal the flesh, blackened and bruised

Oh my brothers... Oh my sisters... Why do you suffer in torment
Oh my father... Oh my mother... Start your praying and repent

What have we brought upon ourselves
So we sing and scream and cry to the one up on high
Red skin and darkened lungs weep the sorrow of the ages

What is this death?
Spreading through the people
The corruption of the air
Has made us soft to weakness
and we shall fall on our knees

Who is He? Who is He?
Who can save us?
Jesus Christ the Son of God
Call upon his name!

The corruption of the air
The corruption of the air

So we sing and scream and cry to the one up on high
Red skin and darkened lungs weep the sorrow of the ages

Who is He? Who is He?
Who can save us?
Jesus Christ the Son of God
Call upon his name!

Call upon his name!
Call upon his name!
Track Name: Eternal Loss
The pain of living in this place
The Great Mortality, The Pestilence
There is no safely for Kafla Serlaro

My family dies with fear in their eyes
Please Lord God take this away from me
Take it away to the furthest of seas

Please don't test me in this way
How could I make it through
Please give me a chance to redeem myself in you

I trip on these mountains trying to find my footing among the sharp rocks
That pierce my flesh and bleed my soul dry
How could a God do this to his people?
How could He truly love me?

Holding my tongue I desire to curse your name
Who has safety for Kafla Serlaro

My Family cries with this fear in their eyes
Please Lord God answer me this question
Why have you done this to me?

Please don't test me in this way
I can not make it through

Demons now holding my mind in contempt
Butchering my dreams in the night
The solace I once had now completely gone
How could a God do this to His own people?
How could He truly love me?

Holding my love I can do nothing for her
The Great Mortality, The Pestilence
There is no love for Kafla Serlaro

I look up to the heavens clutching her with my arms
Please Lord help me in my grief and sorrow

The land is dark as the sickness continues to breed
everyone that I loved
everyone that I cared for is now gone
