Track Name: Ire of War
Mars helixed storm eye spews crimson gall
By tempest arbor gushes holocaust
Bolts hail down on the battle surge
Our society ebbs on a wave of fire
IRE OF WAR

A mother crows for her wretched born
Wolfed down whole by the foul creature of war
The next of kin in a pact of revenge
Becomes himself the very same abbitoir
IRE OF WAR

Par for the course
No remorse
An open sore
Pushing forth
Track Name: Feast of Fools
Claim your place at the feast of fools
A grotesque orgy of ghouls
Cowering fallacy
None but the arrogant seethe
Kill or be killed, rule of law
To absolve the senseless slaughter
of self-destruction and war
of man against the natural world

The sky falls, shattered down
Lays a stark contrast
Upon what's known and nots
Seemingly impregnable block
A manslaughterer's nearing breath
The executioner's guiltless sin
A haelstrom of blood spilt
Silence sacks a voice again
We exchanged wisdom with inepsy
Ordained naivity
Sold our worth off for skint
Mouths get gagged
Books get banned
Cultures smashed
Track Name: Uprise
Maybe this planet is another world's hell
A lucid nightmare waking
Some say to seek the truth is nothing
But a quest for madness

Rise rise verge the edge
Rise rise smash the wall
Rise rise breach the egress threshold
Rise rise face the dawn

Are we not but here to give existence perspective?
But still duality confounds
The human mind purging questions
From the darkness
Rise to the enigma of what we will become
Without self-eradication before we can evolve
Track Name: Egregious Blunder
I can't deceive reality
The truth is painted before me
How do you do it?
With white plastic smiles to hide your denials
We're not the same you and me
This land's been stained with blood and conquest
But no stone was left to mark the dead
Six thousand years of death and slaughter
Pain and horror
Whispers madness poured in my ear
Blood thirsty racist dogs of god
Ripping through with religious war
Despoting existence and deifying rot
The inevitable instant for those who fought
and died for, shed and cried for
Schemed concocted
By generals and tycoons
For clerics and landlords
With lust for mania
Mania to halt the true will of arts
of those who would choose
A venerable life without the sharp knife
of judgment to flesh

God is plague that perverted mankind
Crushing the skulls of the weakness of mind
The lies won't exhalt you
You're all...
You're all doomed
Venomous doctrines, sacrilegious
Denies authority possessed of ourselves
A priest in a church spits puke from his mouth
Retelling old lies told from the past
Vomited words of priest left on pulpits of church
Erected on top of an endless circle
Darkness begets light, life sires death
The eternal spiral of the universe
Slave religion's orthodoxy reign
Slanting the distance between seer and seen
Their flock left to wallow out in the mire
Prisoners of repressed desires
Evil and good mere facets of self
Divided and multiplied, sum of its parts

Leaving all with bleeding hearts
Stealing minds, reaping souls again
Sacrificed in the crusade
To the gods of coming age
Tattered realms bleed the insane
Blood for glory's so archaic
The heretics tongue cut out
But like the lizard will grow back
I've died a thousand deaths
Before a golem papal throne
Burned at stakes, decapitated
While crucified I laughed
Reborn one thousand more
And taken on so many times
Sage of soothes one to choose
Executioner of god
Track Name: Traitor
Through a window an old man
bidding his demise
Devises a new world under his design
The epoch of paradox schism from his life
Liquidate the planet, scald earth, sea, and sky
Traitors
Traitors burn!
As the garden withers gray fruit rots on the vine
Onset of an endless winter corpus delicti
Bird song drowned in fire,
a lamb's throat left to bleed
Total hell on mother earth started from a seed

Go past self-impaled skulls on barrels of guns
With slacked skin leather bleached out by the sun
Ash rides the wind across the desert
Behind a shadowy horseman's dripping stiletto
Left tomorrow, forsaken upon the alter of fear
Before an orsidian idol with excreta veneer
Millions Moloch possessed by possession
A legion of millions to grind down the mountain

Can't see the horizon, the sky's set ablaze
And as is above us so be is below
No ruins to remain
The planet's split open and swallowed us whole
Traitor screaming for blood burning
The epoch of paradox, a vile new dark age
Sacrifice for the sacred to the despot's suicide
Before now nevermore to be is not to be
The last to slew the slayer
Shall in turn themselves be slain
Track Name: Poison Minds
Is this where
Our progression reaches its result?
This desolate mindscape a grid of unsound thought
A shoreless black sea
Beneath a blood red rayless sky
Chasing the horizon of the eternal dusk

Kingdom has come from a pit of poisoned minds
No laws of order exist but of a carnal kind
Remote and arid vastness faced down in glassed sand
Too starved and weary
To stop the madness that's at hand

A dismal abyss
Crowns blunted brainless skulls
Bathed in cathode rays more than in the sun
A digital cacophony
Resounds between the ears
A non-existent existence exists inside your head

Kingdom has come from a pit of poisoned minds
No laws of order exist but of a carnal kind
Then as now and into the unwritten never will
Self-conceived beasts of men
Constitute in the world of the real
Doves and serpents dance in circles around them
Indulging instincts all but thought lost and gone
This is your life, your head is where you exist
Starved and delirious for stimulation but offered nil
Doldrums and boredom, tedious monotones
From birth unto the grave we long just to be
Track Name: TV Drug
Vivisection, war, famine and work
Modern age plagues depressing the earth
But life is for living, we all have to cope
So mindfully choose your own personal dope

Disengage yourself in ennui deathlike trance
Your brain's atrophied, splattered the forth wall
Remote controlled pain and pleasure
Your eyes electric white for the TV drug

Tuned in and spaced out to static channel thought
Living? Yet not alive. Dead before death comes
Doors of perception locked and bolted shut
Your eyes turn electric white for the TV drug

In this 2010 Orwellian technological dystopia
All I need is noise, booze and speed and LSD
Ennui deathlike trance in static channel thought
Your brain's atrophied, splattered the forth wall

Just press a button for pain or pleasure
Your eyes electric white for the TV drug
Living? Yet not alive. Dead before death come
Your eyes turn electric white for the TV drug
Track Name: Aspects of Man
As darkness approaches the gateway
The villages' people go insane
The sun sets and moon's arisen
Casting pale green on the damned
Scum froths from gullets of townsfolk
The asylum's been turned inside out
Unleashed atavisms
Ghostly aspects of man
They claw, tear, and bite at each other
Strange shadows of serene peers
Frenzied fog of confusion
Clouds condemned villages square
Fires rage as lunacy begins
A nonsense reality vision

Sanctuary from the madness
Lays down the path within
Walk along a wintery road
Through the wastes at the ends of the earth
Lone surviving debris of society
Between two worlds
Released from legacy
Inward gaze spectrum greyed
Shape without form, color with no shade
Stoic's eyes recognize no control
But of inside

Living today / tomorrow the same
A stone in space
Self-attained
Inward gaze spectrum greyed
Shape without form, color with no shade

In there's no right and there's no wrong
Hate is love, love is war
We're all dying since we're born
Live for life's sake, don't let life pass you by
Moon wanes and sun arises
Casting gold light on the dawn
Sun sets and moon arises
The earth keeps on spinning around
