Track Name: Stone the Sophist (Demo)
Preach your sermon on the stage
Dare you prey on primal fears
Calling all to see the sage
Words are falling on deaf ears

Cry for mercy, cry for pain
Crying for a world insane
Die for love and die for lust
Die because you know you must

Stone the sophist, watch him scream
Prove that this is not a dream
Stone the sophist, none survive
Prove to me that you're alive

In time the heavens all revolve
Their emptiness forever pure
The burning air will not dissolve
Forever now you shall endure

In my day you'd die for this
Collapse beneath the crushing maw
The heathen gods and Sisyphus
Condemn you for the fatal flaw

Stone the sophist, watch him scream
Prove that this is not a dream
Stone the sophist, none survive
Prove to me that you're alive
Track Name: Stronsay (Demo)
Hurricane, storm surge, carcass
Dare you believe your eyes?
Upon the shores of Stronsay
Falls the cryptic prize
Hear ye, come and see it
Gather, behold the beast
That once had ruled the waters
Now a rotting feast

Raised from the depths of the ocean
Lost to the depths of --

From where did leviathan travel
From land beyond mankind’s reach
Awakened from ancient slumber
To crash upon our beach
Proven to be among mortals
This legend of seafarers’ tales
Allow us to hope there are others
Whose hides we can strip of their scales

Raised from the depths of the ocean
Lost to the depths of time

[Organ solo]

We must recover the creature
Search the turbulent, wicked and cold
Keep close by your side the knowledge
That fortune doth favor the bold
Descend upon all of the oceans
Hope God is on our side
Recover the monster of Stronsay
There’s no place left to hide

Raised from the depths of the ocean (Raise the anchor)
and lost to the depths of time (Set the lines)
Raised from the depths of the ocean (Watch the radar)
and lost to the depths of time (Check for signs)
Raised from the depths of the ocean (Sense disturbance)
and lost to the depths of time (There she lies)
Raised from the depths of the ocean
and lost to the depths of time
