Emotions behold
You’ve entered a hell
Where the devil is made of gold

Don’t run your mouth
The questions before
Have no place in his haunted house

Reveal your selfish pleasure
One more time round for good measure

In the answer you hold
Time would be better off
If our souls had been sold

Here where the light only dies to remember
In the place where the blind truly can see

Hear my voice
Dearly Departed
I beg on my knees
It's been my pleasure
To serve your disease

Welcome Home
Shed your skin
And expose your bones
Take my hand
And follow us into the black
So far that we can’t get back

Dig me a grave
And toss in the lives
That you can’t be bothered to save

With their blood on your hands
You enjoy the sun while you shit in the purest sand
Kiss your lover with that filthy mouth
You fucking monster

As evil now gropes
It’s caught us off guard
With its hands reaching for our throats

There’s no telling when the truth is clear
Pay it no mind
Lines were drawn for us, for all sides

In the afterglow
Echoes of time unfold
Give me your word my dear
And promise you wont let go

It’s a shame, I fear
From end to start
We walked their lines
Born to play the fucking part

I fear we got all we had wanted
Close your eyes and believe it didn’t happen
Now shut your mouth beyond your lies
A world knows to stay away from you
The blood you let run
They march as you lead
We laugh in the sun
Maybe that’s all we need

I’m sorry you can’t escape

Here where the light only dies to remember

In the place where the blind truly can see…


As its name implies, this song describes The Dark Sentencer, known for being the most deplorable of the prison planets created by the Five Houses of the Star Supremacy following the events of The Great Crash. This song seems to also describe the events leading up to Nea and Nostrand's capture and shipment to The Dark Sentencer.
