Track Name: Deprivation In Silence
"Deprivation In Silence"
In a cold desolate palace
I lay myself to rest; white eyes and blank stare
Comfortably numb and laid to waste
I leave behind the atrocities of this place
With no hope to walk on my own
I fight for my chance to bring the Earth's survival
As the wind picks up, I'm found without shelter
Night falls, we cry helter skelter
Bodies lain cold on the floor
With thine eyes as dark as war
Hearts will beat to the pulse of the thunder
As the soldiers draw near their plunder
Recollections of time await in the atmosphere
I repress this despondency
I remember the life before deception
Before my decay
I repress this disposition of myself when harvesting my soul
White eyes and blank stare
In a cold desolate palace
I leave behind the atrocities of this place
Comfortably numb and laid to waste
With no hope to walk on my own
I fight for my chance to bring the Earth's survival
As the wind picks up, I'm found without shelter
Night falls, we cry helter skelter
Bodies lain cold on the floor
With thine eyes as dark as war
Hearts beat to the pulse of the thunder
As the soldiers draw near their plunder
Recollections of time await in the atmosphere
I repress this despondency
I remember the life before deception
Before my decay
I repress this disposition of myself when harvesting my soul
Can we escape who we've become
Our form has beaten us dry
As I gaze upon this darkened story
Every step that I take crumbles beneath my feet
I want to stay, but this death is breath taking
I'll remove myself when I remove the earth
Dare hear me say,
I believe in silence
In the full moon - arising
I believe in life, the death of all mankind
Will I become who I hate? Or will I rise above it all
Will I torture myself with reminisce
Or will I open my eyes
Until these demons of time confide in worldly silence
With our last breath, we breathe your deception
Track Name: Through Eyes Of Disgust
"Through Eyes Of Disgust"
You preach forgiveness, but your words don't mean a thing
Behind the pulpit you provide false hope for the masses
This is not your kingdom, but your demise

Who made you king of the world
I've had enough of your malice and lies
We are the kings and queens of our own life

We are the kings and queens of our own life
Not a pawn, nor a soldier in your army
Victimized, we are the satire within this republic
We are the kings and queens of our own life

With a crooked smile, and the dagger in your heart
You know nothing of sacrifice
With eyes blind and lips stitched
You know nothing of hope

We will climb to the top, and watch your kingdom crumble
Materialistic values are your only god
Your eyes feed on the weak and helpless
We can see it in the distance

We'll watch this fucker burn

We'll see you standing there, the cross on your rotting chest
A cult of humanity, a cult of the possessed
Messages of light, disguise the greed and deceit
Forsaken by lust, we see now through eyes of disgust

We are the kings and queens of our own life
Unified, no falsehoods left to see through your own eyes
We are the kings and queens
Track Name: Monolithic Mastication
"Monolithic Mastication"
Full moon arises,
Village overthrown
to the end we all foresee
Apocalyptic demise,
wherein lies,
endless treachery
Prophecies foretold,
their minds misplace!
The omens of love and death,
between exile and hate

Epic collision
The gnashing of teeth
Vigilant militants
Brutal forces meet

New forceful nature,
foremost technologies intrude
A cranial delicacy,
the gruesome loot
With a heart full of desire, and a mind corroded from deceit
Creating a void of perpetration, until they were...

Ripped apart limb from limb,
The ancient ones dethroned
Left behind, questions unanswered
Pathways reversed, unknown
The reign of controlled disaster,
Within the lives of the unseen
A generation of unsound immolation, controlled by what they see

Bound with the fire of a link to all unknown.
Terrorizing the skies on high, the golden chariot reigns its throne...

Natural selection
Cannibal minds, bound with the fire
All former life, they masticate
True monolithic spectacle

Ripped apart limb from limb
Controlled by what they see
Track Name: Born In The Minds Of Men
"Born In The Minds Of Men"
Beneath the wretched fabrics of time
Lies a will for life
Clouded is my vision, for I cannot see the path
The path to liberation, it lies beneath my feet

I have seen the end of days! Prophesied by mortal minds as life decays

Do not compare me to this dejected scum
I've walked on holy land to purify my temple

Beneath the wretched fabrics of time, lies a will for life
Clouded is my judgment, I cannot see the path

I can't take heed to words
Because they're spoken to me
By my father figures
Dig deep to find myself
Track Name: Redeemer Ov Death
"Redeemer Of Death"
Run and hide
Time inhales every breath that I have to take
Blasphemy! Many times before

Since when did we believe in anything
We are the forgotten ones

United we stand directed we will fall, since when did we believe in anyone

We will watch over your dead dreams, we will listen to all your cries

Grave robber! With not a sense of regret! I've not earned my place in time, through the heart of man

I cannot see, this veil it covers me,
Time will tell, when earth discovers me

I cannot see
I cannot see

Open your eyes to the things unseen
No matter what the cost ill live on through this dream
My mind is open and my sight is sealed shut
The end is near, the end is here
Track Name: Rebuilding The Ancients
"Rebuilding The Ancients"
Traitor! You know nothing
The ancients will rise again
Your blood will be on my hands, as I spit in your face
Judgment has come, so learn your final resting place

What's left to rebuild the ancients
Mother it's time, rain down your fire on this worthless shrine
Such a waste of space
We are the eternal ones, you are the disgrace

One winged
Angel
I will tear this world apart, no one can hear your cries
You're just another pawn, give in to my desire
You'll find there is no other way, there is no way

The weight of your lifeless body, show's sure sign of rejoice
But I will not be happy, until every part of you is dead

Traitor
You know nothing
The ancients will rise again
Your blood will be on my hands, as I spit in your face
Judgment has come
So learn your final resting place
Track Name: Blood Monument
"Blood Monuments"
Daggers from the mouths of liars
You've got your tongue tied yet again
Moral behaviors are an unknown concept
Who do you think will care when you're dead

Cognitive apathy for the sake of revenge
We destroy ourselves willingly, until we reach the end
When we die we'll have a smile on our face, knowing your death
Was included with your disgrace

With motives intact your intentins are clear
We see right through all of your fear
Slowly bleeding out, momentary satisfaction

Till the blade falls your blood will be a monument

I can't breathe! I can't see
Give me hope! Give me life

Don't break this covenant
When the universe aligns
That's when we'll understand
This black hole, has destroyed

The rebuilding process has begun
Holding onto hope when hope isn't even there

I'll fucking find you, and i'll make that last breath your worst
The only thing you'll see when those eyes close, is the face that brought death upon you all
Track Name: Escaping Existence
"Escaping Existence"
All alone I am humbled by death
The mere thought of escaping existence brings peace to my mind
Gasp for air as the blood fills my lungs
I have gone, but my soul breathes again

I Close my eyes and drift away
An entire universe in such a small space
Somewhere, I know I must find peace
Somewhere, I know I must find me

My heart fell right through the floor
Nothing feels close to the same anymore
Is this a dream? Will I ever wake up
Your name engraved on my heart

Wake me up from this

Wake me up, from this nightmare
Let me hear your voice, let me see your face again
Every night I look to the sky
I wonder if you hear me
Every night I cry out, to the sky
Hoping you will respond

Though there's loss
We can be assured
Time heals all
That's the natural order
I know I'll see you when my days are done
I know you'll be smiling at the end

I know you're gone, but I still feel you in my heart
The world has torn us apart, but through divine order..
We are connected

Choices made are out of our hands
Left with nothing but to wash the guilt
Hand in hand with acceptance
