Track Name: Benediction
Paul Harvey's, "If I Were the Devil" speech is altered and utilized for this recording with the intent of parody/satire.
Track Name: Prey
Prey

Salivate, this meal before you,
Breathe deep enlightened sons.
Chorus, breed indoctrination,
Our voice unites as one.

Brothers all, recite the chant,
Devour the bloodied meat.
Consume this offering of souls,
Crushed beneath your feet.

Puppeteers, we pull the strings,
Wagging tails give pause.
Fight for what we choose to sell you,
This mammon is your god.

PREY
Pierce the sky
PREY
Hallowed wings we fly
PREY
Fire in their eyes
PREY
Cleansed to Unify

Breed the fodder for our coffer
Go forth and multiply.
Peasants born in poverty,
Send your sons to die.

PREY
Pierce the sky
PREY
Hallowed wings we fly
PREY
Fire in their eyes
PREY
Cleansed to Unify

Lords of existence,
The reckoning is now.
Resurrected in plain sight,
Look who's laughing now?
Track Name: Ritual
The Ritual

Warm sun; chains that bind.
Fumbling around to lead the blind;
Rain falls, curtain calls,
Paradise, Neanderthals.
Faded gold whispered to dust.
Wandering lost, wasted and tossed...
Tired eyes failing, tomorrow's suns always setting...

A Thundering crack, deafens the lie
March to Death, Eye for an Eye
Leaves this world as blind as hell,
Amused to death, inside a static shell.

Spinning ropes of life and hope
Disintegrate the coil to cope
Joins us all, great and small
Disconnect this rise and fall.
This beauty kills, faith and thrills
Gasping for breath. Swallow regret...

A Thundering crack, deafens the lie
March to Death, Eye for an Eye
Leaves this world as blind as hell,
Amused to death, inside a static shell.

A Billion stars light the night
Welcome fire to this blight.
Clocking in to another day,
To push the debt and worry away
No longer held in caustic chrome,
The weary find their way home...

A Thundering crack, deafens the lie
March to Death, Eye for an Eye
Leaves this world as blind as hell,
Amused to death, inside a static shell.
Track Name: Zeitgeist
Zeitgeist

Failure in depth and divine.
Floating in this stream, brighter now then it seemed.
Fight the faith... blood to fall. Indoctrinated terror; unite them all.

Vanity's Neuropathy
Apathy's Crowned King to Be.
Tarred and feathered all to see;
Breeding insanity...

Succubus, scraps to throw...
Scaling palms bleed, blazing coals beneath your feet
Bullets blaze; damage done... white hot barrel of the smoking gun.

Vanity's Neuropathy
Apathy's Crowned King to Be.
Tarred and feathered all to see;
Breeding insanity...

Feel this Scythe... chill the skin, teasing 'cross volcanic pulse within.
Crack the Sky, plague and sin... clawing tooth and nail to fall where they begin.
Track Name: Greatest Show on Earth
The Greatest Show On Earth

Ladies and Gentleman, these sights do astound,
Blind blinking life, this merry go round.
Amusement abounds, sights not for the meek...
Apathetic asphyxiation, worship the weak.

Creaking grey cracked stone,
bake the bread from powdered bone,
Ticking talk, rolling rock,
Bleeding minutes off the clock.

Flag flapping fails to finish first,
bubble bursting pus, flow the curse.
Struggle to breathe a Jester to appease,
Wipe the king's gullet soiled with disease.

Fail friends, frenzy to the fair,
Spin 'round drunken spiral of self despair.
Paint thinner water, edge insolvency
Cellar door... blind bride to be.

Luminescent screams, rainbow dreams,
Crown apart with diode seams.
The fallen failure of the golden cow
The time is coming soon... the time is coming now.
Track Name: Carnival of Heaven
Carnival of Heaven

Plastic and callous, bleed milk unto me,
This hazardous frantic naivety.
Imploding flatline, deafened despair,
Choose to exist for the one lying there.

This crimson blood falls, to pool beneath feet
Asphyxiated too broken to speak.
Weak since inception, borrowed time burning fast;
The ghost of a child whose time's since past.

Existence breeds purpose, this coward will win
Carnival of heaven, scaled flesh, black grin.
Angels reflection, rain sin on their fall.
Death unites nothing, Death unites all.

Crawl from this Cancer, blistering sweat
Courage regression to crippled regret.
Isolation, these deafening walls.
Trapped inside nightmares and haunted free falls

Shadows in darkness grip this heart of stone,
Needles extract marrow from bone,
Problem of evil, sickle in stealth
Re-born as a Stranger to myself

Existence breeds purpose, this coward will win
Carnival of heaven, scaled flesh, black grin.
Angels reflection, rain sin on their fall.
Death unites nothing, Death unites all.

Atrophy to fail this stolen youth,
Destiny woven, frayed ends of truth.
Wavering Reflections Intrinsic and near,
Crumpled Imperfection Clawing at tears.

Driven by another 'til none left to stand.
God's abandoned this farce of man.
Years lost to needles and gauze.
Impossible quest for Paradise Lost.

Existence breeds purpose, this coward will win
Carnival of heaven, scaled flesh, black grin.
Angels reflection, rain sin on their fall.
Death unites nothing, Death unites all.
Track Name: Where the Wild Things Were
Where the Wild Things Were

Fraying threads… the wasted years,
Defined by our decline.
Sacrificed by discontent
Running out of time…

Forget the lost, numb the pain,
Mutating crypt of lye.
Shovel scraping discontent,
Buried deep inside.

Lock it up… Bleed it dry…
Throw it away… Watch it die.
Lock it up… Bleed it dry…
Throw it away… Watch it die.

Upon this rock, build your host,
Crushed beneath the rise.
Procreate a fascist mess,
Incorrigibly wise.

Failing this, you won't be missed,
A flea to suck me dry.
Eulogy, an empty room,
Perpetuate the lie.

Lock it up… Bleed it dry…
Throw it away… Watch it die.
Lock it up… Bleed it dry…
Throw it away… Watch it die.

Gods of men, who cannot win,
Lathering anew,
Blasting fists to useless curves,
Ignition overdue

Ride this faith laid to waste,
Breath bondage into life,
Melt away or take the blame,
Reflect the soiled knife.

Lock it up… Bleed it dry…
Throw it away… Watch it die.
Lock it up… Bleed it dry…
Throw it away… Watch it die.

Keep it down... You'll be alright...
Knuckles glowing white.
Marching drum of pounding steel,
Echoes through the night.
Track Name: Illuminated
Illuminated

Rend to splinter hope away
Ignite the fuse, abuse, betray.
Begin again, we ignite,
Flickering in endless night.

Everything illuminated.
Hope to rise and be cremated.
Brick by Brick to touch the stars,
Quaking earth, rupture scars.

Tidal forces come in droves,
Pulsing beats in falling snow.
Keeping fast which cannot hold.
lying still, dead and cold.

Molten flow, fallen fly
Ruins left where dreams will die.
Mortar flame, blankets night
Burning hell, glowing white.

Everything illuminated.
Hope to rise and be cremated.
Brick by Brick to touch the stars,
Quaking earth, rupture scars.

Tidal forces come in droves,
Pulsing beats in falling snow.
Keeping fast which cannot hold.
lying still, dead and cold.

Ashen breeding, dulling haze
Weakened fall to former praise.
Come one, come all, look and see,
the broken lose their legacy.

Everything illuminated.
Hope to rise and be cremated.
Brick by Brick to touch the stars,
Quaking earth, rupture scars.

Tidal forces come in droves,
Pulsing beats in falling snow.
Keeping fast which cannot hold.
lying still, dead and cold.

Reality to come,
Mortals fear the end.
Dust unto the void,
Ebb and flow it bends.

For you I have become,
The dread inside of me.
Specter left upon the mound,
For all the sinners to see.
Track Name: Dawn
Dawn

Spiral down to repossess,
Stolen from a panicked mess.
Abyss to fear, veiled tears,
Desperate screams to keep me here.

Body tired, shivering pain,
Clawing through your hell again.
Incessant echoes, cannot sleep,
Beaten form sinking deep.

Rays of light shimmer near,
The darkness I despise
Tides reversed unto the dawn,
Damning sun to rise.

A feigned calm keeps you here,
Pouring from your brow;
Shell of hope and misery
Pleads to save you now.

Keep the flame burning bright,
In dungeons down below.
Rot, rust, waste, and dust
Remains of what I know

Rays of light shimmer near,
The darkness I despise
Tides reversed unto the dawn,
Damning sun to rise.

Flesh to flesh, warming touch,
This body: yours to be a crutch.
No end in sight, quivers still,
A life to do with as you will.
Track Name: Ash
Ash

Glass shaking shatters
Grey flesh through flame,
Let yourself inside
Leave me to take the blame.

Never is enough,
Electric is the air.
Piercing through this armor,
Welcoming the wear.

Forsake the incision
Wash away the host.
Ashes of the haunted
Finally giving up the ghost.

Paralyzed I falter,
Blood stops in vein.
Time lost to darkness,
Melting away.

Void embracing souls,
Where Rain falls to rot,
Golden sun gleaming,
To do what I cannot.

Forsake the incision
Wash away the host.
Ashes of the haunted
Finally giving up the ghost.
Track Name: Onyx
Onyx

Quivering masses, faceless maw,
Grinding gears burn in awe.
Starving hope, fantasy,
Brave to fear thy enemy.

Misdirected controls inside,
A cyber-Synaptic Suicide.
Assimilated, death in chains
Drowning out all their screams...

Come for our lives, Come for our homes,
Come for the wise, hunt us with drones.
Build these walls with fallen kin,
No easy way out, no easy way in.

Faceless race, the laid to waste
Seal the truth that lays in wait
Fodder left as trodden bait,
To bar us all behind it's gate.

Come for our lives, Come for our homes,
Come for the wise, hunt us with drones.
Build these walls with fallen kin,
No easy way out, no easy way in.

A Fascist dog's reckoning,
Manufactured reality.
Weaving threads, watch 'em fall,
Leeches bleeding as they crawl.
Track Name: Catalyst
Catalyst

Frayed, fraught
Venom, Scoff
Rupture, Catatonic Wall
Dive Depths intense,
Seams burst disease

Preach on these...
Blood clots, stigmata
Feigned... disassociated.
Blind... Wait. Leave it all to fate.
Tantric through stability.

We revolve... to de-evolve...
Retain pain...
Retain nothing...

Wasted youth
Entranced, perceive truth
Frontline: caustic burn
Chained to all...
Trained to fall...
Cowards fear their Curtain Call

Ticks with ease, drink disease,
Trade fears for false prophecies.
Leave it all new. Like we found truth,
Specified... but festering.

Horizons falling...
Receding... Receding...

Wasted youth
Entranced, perceive truth
Frontline: caustic burn
Chained to all...
Trained to fall...
Cowards fear their Curtain Call

We are consumed in waves,
As foes slowly turn to slaves
Damned fought through Eternity.
Bring back whatever's left of me,
Over and over again...Over and over again...
Over and over again...Over and over again...
