Track Name: Cinder
Praise the sun and what's to come
From the tower to the depths
The sun shines down on your armor
Belies the threat that awaits

To find the vessel as Hollowed
And reignite the flame

Waken at the shrine and know it's time
To walk the cliff's edge on your way
Enkindle, refill the Estus
Traverse through the fog again

To claim the vessel as Hollowed
And reignite the flame

Kill, loot, take heed!
Hubris kills like greed
Choose your move and strike
One false move is your life
Fight!

To the victor go the spoils
Bathed in souls, it's time to mend
Warm at the flame of the bonfire
It's time to set forth once again

Praise the sun!
Track Name: Devastate You
Witness the end of our desire.
I'll raze it to the ground and set your world ablaze.
My sheer contempt for your fashion and pills.
Kiss me one last time, taste the poison on my tongue.

You don't see me.
You see through!
It's my turn now to devastate you.

Your beautiful disguise hides years of scars.
So much disgust wells with every image.
The damage done before I arrived
Will pale to the ruin I leave in wake.

You don't see me.
You see through!
It's my turn now to devastate you.

You have brought out the worst in me.
Look at all the damage I have done.
And when you finally, truly hate me,
I'll write your name in my blood.
Track Name: Great Yokai War
It's been so long
since I've seen this place and I've been gone.
Specters haunting,
if the blood on these walls could talk you know they'd taunt me.

I've seen a fall of grace
and I've seen the beauty in calamity.
Instead are echoes of my time
when I walked these halls of catastrophe.

Moving from this,
the flame has withered from time and distance.
Breathing new life
into the old bones of what others thought had died.

I've seen the fall of grace
and I've seen the beauty in calamity.
Instead are echoes of my time
when I walked these halls of catastrophe.

Sought the truth out there,
but I'm still drawn here to the safe fear
of my youth I lost.
Waiting for this to become bliss.
Frustration wraps its
arms around me, bask in its glory.
I will not go gentle
into that good night before the torch goes out!

Specters haunting,
if the blood on these walls could talk you know they'd taunt me.
Track Name: The Disaster Artist
Kiss or kill, it makes no difference.
We'll make it or we won't.
I've seen this play out a million different ways.
I try and you don't.
Days of this go by and it kills me,
I'm at the end of my rope.
If it doesn't hang me right here,
at least I know it'll choke.

This time I think I'll get it right.
Who better to make me miserable?

You're Heaven sent and I'm Hell bent.
It comes and it goes.
Dressed to the nines and armed to the teeth.
Look out below.
I haven't smiled like this in a long time,
it chills me to the bone.
I haven't looked this good in a while,
I guess I'm going alone.

Mine eyes have seen the coming of the end.
I take a seat to bear its witness.
Of this disaster I'm an artisan.
I've honed my craft through my existence.

I'll make sure this world burns baby,
we'll be the first to go!
Dressed to the nines and armed to the teeth
and I'm not going alone.

Animosity, my only friend.
Who better to make me suffer this?
Who better to make you understand
that I have learned nothing except distrust?
