Track Name: Oblivion part 1: The Chant of Tyrants
I rise from defeat
shards, and ashes
timeless, elemental and unrestrained
I am your death,
the death of weakness, distraction, ambivalence
flashes in eternity and aeons past, present and parallel
I am the hand of tyrants,
the spear of Longinus,
legion and arc-angel
“The end is now upon you,
and I will unleash my anger against you
I will judge you according to your ways,
and bring all your abominations upon you.”
Welcome back to the end of the world
Track Name: Black Veils of Justice
here we stand victorious
all bridges burned
savoring the broken soul
you will suffer for treachery
don your crown of nails with shame
it's only forever
a vociferous silence
face what you've done
never to have our compassion
paled by black veils of justice
the transmission of dominion complete
behold the power of three
renewed unhaunted supreme
an endless desert crossed
a petrified drought
flooded
don your crown of nails with shame
an indomitable retreat
the dawning illuminates
never to have our compassion
paled by black veils of justice
the transmission of dominion complete
the path of hope revealed
for the next world war
a rumble from the distance
only a reminder
an endless desert crossed
a petrified drought
flooded
Track Name: Between Suns of Light
buried and untouched for ages
beneath ancient ruins
it lied dormant
overlooking a lifeless sea
a descent into infinite darkness
driven feverishly by greed
in silence it called out
for eons time stood still
singing truth and horror
stories as old as time
ancient wars in the sky
between the suns of light
and the suns of dark
cross pollination
between us and them
a descent into infinite darkness
a descent into...
ancient wars in the sky
between suns of light
Track Name: Binary Souls
science fiction reality
harbinger of nothingness
upper echelons cheat
god and death await
the last pages are blank
everything before loses meaning
the world lies
we still believe
technology increases divide
human contact extinction
bodies fall from the sky
only the plants know
the process continues
we didn't stop to question
our immortal goals
we didn't stop to question
our immortal goals
warmth frozen forever
as we become binary souls
Track Name: Reclamation
destroy the source
the source who collects the inept and now reign
forced abuse though they choose
to be the ones who must now decay
devolve decreate
infection overtakes their demise brings no change
now your fear is your fate
they'll dissolve and cease to remain
purge the mind
impregnated with disease
sever the ties
the shackles that bind your forced humanity
a reclamation of our kind
a riddance of society
a subversion of what was created
a cycle of oblivion
Track Name: Annunaki
we discovered their lost intent
a distant race so close within us
the forbidden fruit began the end
desires for flesh
genetic alteration
the source denounced
a progenic schism
genetic contamination
experimental progenic mutation
against their rebellion
extinction of our inception
or so they thought
catastrophic planetary events
a return to the drawing board
monuments emerge
cyclic chains of slavery
golden subordination
still haunting us
Track Name: Reigns in Fire
he whose hands shape the tremors, arise
he who reigns in fire, arise
a light ignited, a mark of sins produced
the one has been chosen the portal is open
a new epoch now born
violent splitting of the earth
cracking from the core
defilement of artifact
and the scent of the dead
raise the hands, bow in ritual
vessels aligned, scattered in unison
raise the hands, intonations
voices divide, spawning dysithrian
fragments come together
dismemberments align
like water drawn back to ocean
to walk again into the shadow
a light ignited, a mark of sins produced
the one has been chosen the portal is open
a new epoch now born
blood fills the streets
blood fills the sky
blood washes over our cities
blood is everywhere
the new world is born...
the new world is bathed..
...in blood
Track Name: Cancer of Wraiths
sabbath in the mountains
rust in the air
the blood is sacred here
the dimension tears
down in the roots
out of reality
time is meaningless
mild insanity
chimera
the ship has departed
the threads fall apart
we wanted out
all threads fall apart
truant killers
a cancer of wraiths
who do not want
to climb up from
their chicanerous trench
long-lived gluttons cheering carnage
escaping from freedom
the perfect failure
the threads fall apart
we want, We wanted out
Track Name: Multiverse
in two different worlds
a quantum state does not count
only many-worlds can explain
quantum superposition effects
all possible alternative histories and futures are real
prior to many-worlds, reality had been viewed as a single history
