Track Name: Heretical Bedlam
casting shadows of mountains
with wings spread out like angels, they take to the sky
enticing the fragile bones of bodies lying near
sharp talons carry our weak to their death, this state of fear

consume this drug, now disappear
fade into the planet's life stream
delivering the plague,
the planet's one last gift
blood is spilled for the ancients
the ultimate sacrifice

my limbs have morphed slowly
this is not flesh that I shed
becoming something unholy
time will expand

help me!

My bones begin to crack,
as my body begins to change
twitches of the possessed, faces of the deranged

I've turned into,
one of the towering
abominations, delivering the plague

What the hell have I become?
Ashamed of it all, as my body is gone

I feast upon the flesh, I once called my own
Its taking over, the beautiful hunger
to the rotting hills, where we were left to die
the longest journey, a decomposing mind
darkness consumes the soul, there's no torch lit
never to find our, way through the trail of bones,
lost with no thought, forever I shed
the skin of man and the feathers of

the plague doctor

consume this drug, now dissappear
fade into the planet's life stream
the ultimate sacrifice
Track Name: Hunters
When the sky opens
We praise and worship

I wear the mark of the ancients
surrounded by those who share my plight
there is no equal for the vengeance we seek
now call upon the creatures of the dead night

the smell of decay spreads
as the blood moon begins to rise
we hang the guilty as an offering
cleanse the soil of those who defy

be reborn through the flames of the ancients
the souls that lived before your gods and demons

screams lure the innocent,
and those unluckly enough to hear the call
life clings in the mouth of the forest
where all life that enters, will soon bow and fall

the centuries before man,
soaked this dirt with bloodshed
now that the tides of torment rises again
we become one with them

be reborn through the flames of the ancients, (we become one with them)
the souls that lived before your gods and demons (we become one with them)

their hollowed faces line these trees
the sky opens, to exact revenge upon the weak

the wind cuts like glass,
against the skin, into the skin
step ever so lightly,
or succumb to the evil within
defiling the corpses, of innocent children
this is what we were
driven to, a pitiful game
after raping our minds, your time will come
soon

come forth and claim the offering
your kind is not wanted here

the screams are deafening, I knew they would follow
the bodies lie hollow, no shame for the born slaves

I hear someone walking in my woods
Call of the siren, listen to her voice, listen to her voice
Track Name: Binary Catalyst
now, cleanse your mind
enter the womb of chaos
distorted by design
numbers begin to speak
as the branded fall in line
"commence the sequence",

prisoner of madness
dreamer of liberation
tuning the instrument of death
notes sing through their bodies
a blank stare, in her eyes
"I will not become...

their faceless expression, while bound to this sentence.
a permanent veil, this shell of a man

inject and replace
those afraid to search for the unknown
yet we welcomed this new world with open arms

praise him, kneel to us
makeshift woven god

when the planet speaks,
delusions of hope
entice us with immortality
only to, leave us wandering
through the ocean of sand
never finding our way,
delirium

the power hungry
feast upon the flesh
I will not stay in this
world of death, rot, and regret
failure to connect,
the signs shown to us
and what we choose to forget
this world of death, rot, and regret

praise him, kneel to us
makeshift woven god

when the masked one speaks,
prayers of fear
show us our own mortality
only to, keep us where we stand
with open lifeless eyes
encoded with the brand
never to be free

one step, out of mind
an error within the system
constructing a new timeline
broken reality, I've shut my eyes
and learned to die

dreamer of madness
prisoner of liberation
tuning the instrument of death
notes sing throughout the hillside
that blank stare, in her eyes
"I will not become...
Track Name: Razing Eden
Rid this world of existence
remold our promise land
through his eyes

cleanse, through our own devices
kill, young bodies lie lifeless
the serpent slithers through the cracks of fate
mindless sedation,
the chaos ensues

lust stained lips of harlots,
the bloodshot stare of junkies
a life with no purpose, the parallels are endless

destroying not creating, they chose death instead of life
the cries out, to save us, are hopeless, contagious
we shall all, share in the same fate
this endless curse, has enslaved us all

our newborn have fallen,
into a state of unconsciousness
that's unfamiliar, even to us
every precaution was taken,
except by ridding our land of the filth,
the false prophets, and the non-believers

what must be done is as clear as this day
indoctrinate then eradicate
those crawling along and easily lead astray
enter the light or be shown to your cosmic grave

Rid this world of existence
remold their promise land
its all lies

without us and our guidance, humanity has no hope
be brave, when letting the voices in
for your own will be forever lost

they say, the brand will save your mind
but who will save them, when we lose control, when they lose control of us

I'll disconnect from what keeps my head here
unplug from their god and spit out their fear
Track Name: Lightbearer
crawl towards the light
slowly, the touch of possession
shortness of breath
the brittle air numbs the senses, still broken
appearing in multiples of 3,
the removal, exhale and fall into the sea

the skulls of proto humans,
litter the sand
sheltered eyes,
still unprotected
face to face, with a lifetime of fables
caught between,
remembering and reality

cognitive dissonance, broken yet maintaining pulses
flashes of the future, race throughout the black sky

armed with nothing but the memories, of yesterday
"tomorrow you're just a slave,
today you must be brave"
hold close, this sustained peice of you
born from this jar,
sheltered from the destruction
now bow to the favors
of destiny

time shifts, fading in and out of reality
the key to survival, within the death of our people

cognitive dissonance, crippled yet maintaining life
flashes of the future, race throughout the black sky

armed with nothing but the memories, of yesterday
"tomorrow you're just a slave,
today you must be brave"
hold close, this sustained peice of you
born from this jar,
sheltered from the destruction
now bow to the favors of

staring into the mouth
of the ever approaching storm
writing the history
manufactured clone

enter the skin,
drink the preacher's blood
overload, disconnect
humanity is lost
we share this fate, the strain, this blood
mutated shadows, we've become
a defect in the system, contaminated
I fell apart and they made me again
impure, the sickness of the brand
a defect in the system, contaminated
Track Name: Eradication
behold their key to a new life
a gift so pure, this second chance
put aside your weakness and he will give you strength
so slowly we embrace the loss of our humanity

feel their grip tighten
behind your eyes
starve to death as the power hungry continue to feast
be controlled, the numbers show
where we've been, our time moves along so slow

fear, the puppet master
stare, at the last sun

branded we are the same
the writings on the walls
the plan is now in place
waiting to suffocate

feel their grip tighten
behind your eyes
starve to death as the power hungry begin to feast
be controlled, the numbers show
where we've been, our time moves along so slow

hidden fear, will be the absolute
agonizing, our waking life is spent dying

sin, unplug the cord
detach from this new life
we are born, from the code
crooked mouth, will lie
wipe the spit from your brow
clenching swords of might
the last thought of our home
will carry on
when we admit defeat,

branded we are the same
the writings on the walls
the plan is now in place
waiting to suffocate
blame us, the virus, now show me your faith

there are no angels, no demons here
there is only us, and the design
when the numbers speak, we'll fall in line
one by one, our punishment
