    11 - Track concept debut album from Yesterday's Saints

    It is the story of Satan throughout time: from his desire to usurp the throne of God to his modern infiltration of all mankind, with the indication that everyone on Earth is now a descendant of Satan. The album opens with a flashback: what corresponds chronologically to a third song is actually listed as the first track. The story then resumes from its chronological beginning starting on track 2. The final song alludes to two theories of the universe: the one that asserts we are all a figment of a man's dream; and multi-dimensional membrane theory, where the "Big Bang" was/will be the result of an intersection/collision between our current dimensional membrane and a parallel one. As a result of either theory, whether "the man" waking up or the collision between dimensional membranes, the end of days is the outcome. Time is then reset again by the man falling asleep again or the explosion of another "Big Bang".

about

Characters: Future descendants of Cain. Cain's lineage escapes peril of the 40 day flood by hiding in the mountains and surviving off of animals that the flood waters bring them. ("O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?", John the Baptist, as quoted in Matthew 3:7). We used this to support our storyline of Satan's linage surviving.

lyrics

Dark cloaks the air the heavens weep again
Gray fades to black the seed of the serpent breathes
On high to the mountains we climb the rivers flow deep and faster than time
Tears from the gods to extinguish our fire raising the oceans to drown our bloodline
Climb up high above the world we know so high to see his and raise a flame
To call the vipers home to call the vipers home
The leaves of the tree branch wide to the vines in the rocks above
Sewn in to the weeds in the fields below
From valleys to the caves to the mountains on high
Dark cloaks the air the heavens weep again
Gray fades to black the seed of the serpent breathes
Raging waters bring us less the two feasting at the world as royals would do
The tides subsides the line survives from the silver mountain we continue to thrive
Now from here we want the world to see our eyes so bright to lead our destiny
The darkness of all man darkness of all man
The leaves of the tree branch wide to the vines in the rocks above
Sewn in to the weeds in the fields below
From valleys to the caves to the mountains on high
