about

"January 2nd. The beginning of a new year. And the day when the dead returned to life. Twenty Three residents of Wausau, a small town in rural central Wisconsin suddenly walked off the slab, better than ever, free of disease and the effects of old age. And no one knows why. Dubbed ‘Revival Day,” the event put Wausau under siege from Federal Agents, the CDC, and from religious pilgrims believing the Rapture had begun.

Now quarantined from the rest of the world, the citizens of Wausau deal with the ticking pressure cooker of an entire town facing cabin fever, an uneasiness about their newly resurrected friends and neighbors and sightings of bizarre creatures in the fields and forests that surround the city."

That's the setup for the comic book series REVIVAL, coming from IMAGE comics in July 2012.

This album is a soundtrack loosely inspired by it.

Track Name: Intro to Revival
INTRO TO REVIVAL

We stood up on two legs
And raised our heads above golden grass
He was there

We sharpened stone and steel
Used tools to harvest grass, beast and brother
He was there

We clustered together
In brick and mud swarming with rats and plague
He was there

We built nations and mistrust
Our fingers hovered over the red button
He smiled

Still we build
To rise above the golden grass
Away from the reach of his scythe

When he will harvest no more

Track Name: Undying Mystery
UNDYING MYSTERY

So cold
So cold out here
You can't see us
You don't know just how long

We've been watching
We've been waiting
Now the time has come
And you'll wish you never knew

Our true meaning

You won't forget our names
You will find our graves
And all will remember

And regret

The lost will be carried away
Only to return once again
The darkness of this mystery
Is undying

So old
So old your fear
You can feel us
And you know when you're alone

We are with you
Our arms around you
And noone will come
We are taking some of you

Away with us

And you will cry our names
You who made our graves
And all will remember

And regret

At night we were carried away
Now we have returned once again
The darkness of our mystery
Is undying

You won't forget our names
You will find our graves
And all will remember

And regret

So cold
So cold out here
You will be us
You will long for the ones

You are watching
Love them with loathing
And the time will come
When you must reveal

Your true meaning

They won't forget our names
We will haunt their graves
And all will remember

And regret

At night they were carried away
Now they have returned once again
The darkness of this mystery
Is undying

The lost will be carried away
Only to return once again
The darkness of our mystery

Is undying

Track Name: Cumulus Crown
CUMULUS CROWN

Sing a hymn to the ascender
Who sits aloft, wrapped in splendor now
You were made that you may never know

Blood bought children, helpless rendered
In our folly we will feed the ground
Garden made of graves still grows

Altogether
we could never
comtemplate the splendor
of the

Cumulus Crown - Resting on his head
Cumulus Crown - Mine are thorns instead
Cumulus Crown - Rests upon his head
Cumulus Crown - Mine are thorns

Mine are thorns instead

Although justice be thy plea
Through course of justice, none should see
Salvation, neither you nor me

Cirrus thoughts fall short forever
To bridge the gap between the earth and sky
Atone for us despite the lie

For it is I, a meek offender
Who brought a hammer down into the nail
To trade for life that never dies

Sing a hymn to the ascender
Who sits aloft, wrapped in splendor now
You were made that you may never know

Sewn together
with forever
making up the halo
of a

Cumulus Crown

Track Name: Etiainen
ETIAINEN

Winds will come and rain will fall
Dare to tread no further now

Desperately we cling to dust
In the rot we put our trust

Every idol bound to fall
off the altar...

The sacrifice crawls
The sacrifice crawls

Sorrow sentry chase the wind
In the end you will begin

To grieve the pain of your decay
The thought that life got in our way

The sound of mocking breeze does call
Oh how quickly...

Your house of cards falls

Your house of cards falls

Oh, Etiainen - Follows me
Home, Etiainen - Follows me
Home, Etiainen - Follows me
Home, Etiainen - Swallows me

Gone in search of many schemes
Weaving fabric of our lives

Where the fact and fiction clash
Works forgotten in our past

The age of Tempus' voice stands tall
Still the stones cry out...

Your echoes still call
Your echoes still call

Track Name: Condemned
CONDEMNED

This is a place
Of hopelessness and fear
And I don't think we're getting out of here

The light is dim
The path is overgrown
Where we've ended at noone could know

Reasons why sadly fade
Who we were slips away

Shadows roam
These old deserted roads
Searching for the light that let them go

The secret sealed
Hidden in archaic art
Memories of strangers digging deep graves in the dark

Distant cries on the wind

Silence suffocates again

Abandoned love and loss of will

Has left us in the burning fields
Has cast our bodies to the soil

Condemned to live
A death that never ends
No forgiveness granted for our sins

The emptiness
Stretches on and on
Our names are long forgotten now, the need for them has gone

Reasons why sadly fade

Who we were slips away

Abandoned love and loss of will

Has left us in the burning fields
Has cast our bodies to the soil

This is a place
Of hopelessness and fear
And I don't think we're getting out of here
Track Name: A Message From Absalom
A MESSAGE FROM ABSALOM

(instrumental)

Let it go.
