Track Name: Waltz Eternal
We fell into this world
We never did choose
We dance an eternal waltz
Hand in hand with our coming loss

Don't dare to hope...
Are the pages all written
By a hand not quite our own
Would I ever dare to hope
For a path away from the dark

No animal could ever be
So savage and heartless as our kind
This poison that flows through our veins
Once flowed in the springs of Eden

The gifts bestowed
Discarded in favour of carnal lust
Truly a miracle
Earthbound is the blood of our kin

Earthbound is the blood of our kin
Forever ensconced in the mire
Fears lay nailed to the crucifix
Cleansed in the afterglow

No animal could ever be
So savage and heartless as our kind
This poison that flows through our veins
Once flowed in the springs of Eden
Track Name: Theseus
Ex umbra in solem, the man emerges
From the festering cesspool of primordia
Through natural selection we kill and fuck
On our way to claim the crown of dominance
Crushing all predators beneath our heels
Our continued survival all but assured
In our perfection the seeds of corruption
Go unnoticed, nurtured through centuries

Deconstructing the human race
Through reversal of genetic engineering
Making way for acceleration
Technological is our evolution

The rigours of life no longer
A further threat to the weak, and the wretched
Let the lowly, abandoned, forgotten
Work their shackled hands, to the bone
To propel our selfish children
To the heights of vanity, and abandon
Let the rich congeal into
A bulbous pulsating mass, of corruption

Join in with the ranks of the elite
In the orgiastic marriage of man
With the cold unfeeling machine
In the wake of the Theseus

Laying waste to the likes of the meek
Render the old human guard obsolete
Replacing God in our hideous image
In the name of convenience

Take flight after Icarus
And set your wings afire

There can be no more disguising, of our instinct
To better our fellow man, at any cost
Conquer your foes and make history
As a personal hero of a smaller pond

The lower class will bottom out
The seeds of vengeance taking root
Preparing to make way
For the inevitable collapse

Surrender your idols
Burn your effigies
The second coming
Has arrived in the digital

Relinquish your rule
Give in to finality
Our species has crossed the line
And arrives in second

The collapse will come
Humankind, undone
Outdone, by ourselves
Obsolescence, our hell

Giving up our status as the supreme
Species to the cult of the machine
Homo sapiens a footnote in history
A blotch on the faded pages of our time
Fading, skulking into the black
We become the study, a modern
Atlantis, a livid race
Lost forever to our offspring

Deconstructing the human race
Through reversal of genetic engineering
Making way for acceleration
Technological, is our evolution

The rigours of life no longer
A further threat to the weak, and the wretched
Let the lowly, abandoned, forgotten
Work their shackled hands, to the bone
To propel our selfish children
To the heights of vanity, and abandon
Let the rich congeal into
A bulbous pulsating mass, of corruption

Join in with the ranks of the elite
In the orgiastic marriage of man
With the cold unfeeling machine
In the wake of the Theseus

Laying waste to the likes of the meek
Render the old human guard obsolete
Replacing God in our hideous image
In the name of convenience
Track Name: Execrate
Fall in line
On your knees, kissing the feet
Of the memetic image
Of a nonexistent deity

MTV
We'll heed the voice that screams the loudest
One side another side yet no truth
Walking in lockstep, face to back

Eyes forward
A proud obedient consumer
Walking in a walled garden
Drunk on my own stupidity

Inexorably
Write down our names and take our pictures
Whisper material nothings
And put a price on my privacy

Subscribe, to the vice
Toiling endlessly
To buy, into the light
Of the corporate whore machine

And the sky, once so bright
Has become a memory
Undying is the mourning
For our long lost dignity

Construct
This social cult
In the bid to gather
The human cattle

Desecrate
These ravaged remains
Indulging in this
Morbid avarice

From birth to death we follow
The lines laid out by the chosen
Few, walk the path they set
Languishing through a camera lens

No choice except to swallow
The seed of uncompromising
Greed, engulfed in madness
Execrate the so called 'wise'

We are the apex of
Human evolution
Circling the drain through
Rampant apathetic folly

Lining the soil with the blood
And bones of human waste
To build our towering
Monuments to our surely imminent reckoning

Paradise

Behold a time of prior days
Where the signal was clear
And thoughts were sacred

Subscribe, to the vice
Toiling endlessly
To buy, into the light
Of the corporate whore machine

And the sky, once so bright
Has become a memory
Undying is the mourning
For our long lost dignity

Construct
This social cult
In the bid to gather
The human cattle

Desecrate
These ravaged remains
Indulging in this
Morbid avarice

From birth to death we follow
The lines laid out by the chosen
Few, walk the path they set
Languishing through a camera lens

No choice except to swallow
The seed of uncompromising
Greed, engulfed in madness
Execrate the so called 'wise'

The bleating sheep are gathered
The old bloodlines are severed
The harvest has begun
And leaves out no one

Killing with impunity
Mankind's thrashing leprosy
Decimate the brainwashed masses
Slaughter these parasitic scum
Track Name: The Forlorn Self
We greet the longest eve after
We have lasted
Through the end
Of all things
The landscape lay maudlin
Desiccated
In graven silence
The blood red sky melted

The wind at my side sewn
For the harvest of the
Soul - I close my eyes
And welcome
Visions of sweet release
In reverie endless
Embraced in sylvan
Darkened woods boundless

The boundless fury
Of a world unborn
Within myself
My soul forlorn

With widened eyes and
Sullen revelations
Wash this all down
All has run its course
Becoming one with
The whited tempest
The jagged rocks and spray
Excoriating me

Pale whitened skin
Inviting to be censured
Blood red flesh
Empty carnal pleasures
God forsaken
The storm obscures our cries
Follow, follow
Surely a slave am I

The boundless fury
Of a world unborn
Within myself
My soul forlorn
Track Name: In Worship
The words in silence
Spew from my mouth in anguish
I am torment rendered flesh
Watching threadbare lines of triumph
Sway fragile in the winter

Upon a raised dais
Lay dead all that were dear

Their corpses knelt in place
Atrophied arms outstretched

In eternal longing to touch
The altar of this memory
A life held so fragile
Lost to eternal obscurity

Death is no end
Only this phase overt and critical
Before and after I am judged
This is truly the end of me

The ashen woods darken
As the curtain falls

In a black room
Where all are judged
Leaving behind a world
Where no mark remains

So few stay praised
So many return to nothing
Our time is compressed
The end always looming

A caress of the blade
Gleaming in scarlet
A welcoming hand offered
Ushered into the dark
Track Name: Porous
The ice and salt of the Northern waters
Settling within the bottom of my lungs
The streams that assailed me as I swam against them
With a wish to be pulled to the bed of the tides

With the passage of time, my eyes have adjusted
To the encroaching shroud, my lack of a purpose
My memories of you, of being someone else
Sealed in amber, fantasies of a child

The night is damp, thick in the deadened shades of black
I stand beneath the trees
Watching the moonlight shimmering through their leaves
Casting their shadows over me, across the clearing
To obscure me from view, drinking the hot summer air
The winds washing over me

Have all my years
Simply disappeared
Like nothing's changed
This old ache still remains

The desire is still in me
Cool and frail against my chest
I stood here unseen
And prayed to you

Unworthy am I
Undeserving am I
You were my deity
Porous was your beauty

Mirror down your sun
To light my face in this mire
My refuge in this darkness
I've paid for in my nightmares

Nothing carnal or cerebral
Only you and only I, for a moment
For a moment, I could feel you
A fleeting time in which to
Worship, knowing this elation cannot be
Permanent, so unguarded and pure
And I know, this moment will never return

Your hand against my cheek
There are no secrets here
I find the embrace of the earth
And all that I know is love
Track Name: Heir of the Wounds
The deadened husk of a man left broken
Blood rendered cold, imparted grief and dogma
What lessons did you leave unspoken
What wisdom remains within that mind

Only one course of action remains with you
The prodigal son ascending to claim his prize
To consume all this which has spawned you
The scalpel shining in the cold light

Incision across the chest
Reveal discrete viscera
In my twisted fascination
I'll discover your secrets

Peeling back the layers
Stripping the flesh from bone
The pendulous acres of skin
Curling to form my robe

The eyes that gazed upon me
Beholding my first moments
Now resting in my hand
The grave that beckons you home

The ruby pooling in the white
An incredible vision
Entrails coiled around my arms
Glory of the dissection

Preachings of evil, lessons of the vile
Denouncing the holy as wisps of fiction
Pride attracting the whispers of ill content
Soul sentenced to eternal putrefaction

A slave to this primal existence
Reaching out of life, the quickening
Into the void, we are the waves
Scales of dimensional skin shining on

The blood and oil that mix
I am your host, you are the ether
As I feast upon your mottled flesh
And exist now forever

Peeling back the layers
Stripping the flesh from bone
The pendulous acres of skin
Curling to form my robe

The eyes that gazed upon me
Beholding my first moments
Now resting in my hand
The grave that beckons you home

The ruby pooling in the white
An incredible vision
Entrails coiled around my arms
Glory of the dissection

Frozen, his veins...
Slow, final death...
In shadows, of hope lost...
Pure, blasphemous vanity

Below ground eternally, always watching
Eyes once more to meet, staring through nothingness
The wheel will turn again as the spawn are feeding
Ancient ritual continues, abhorrent and vapid

All initiative now suppressed
The memories slowly digesting
Gently I now ascend to rest
Upon the precipice of sanity

Peeling back the layers
Stripping the flesh from bone
The pendulous acres of skin
Curling to form my robe

The eyes that gazed upon me
Beholding my first moments
Now resting in my hand
The grave that beckons you home

The ruby pooling in the white
An incredible vision
Entrails coiled around my arms
Glory of the dissection

Drink deep of the waters pure
Fill up with the pain I've saved
I now pass on these wounds
To which they are my heirs

Inherited anathema
Rising up now from warm soil
Children repeat my questions
The throat emptying into the void
