Track Name: XI - Millirem
XI. Millirem

Back to the source
Just past the
burst of initial radiation.

Before the earth and after the earth

Millirem
Millirem

Wave of energy
It's inside of me x 2

Bursting forth
Energy, energy

Bursting forth
Energy
Track Name: XII - Dwell
XII. Dwell

How long will they wait
To be liberated
From this system of
system of constraint?

Constraint
Chain, contain, dwell
ENSLAVE!

Fooled, fooled, fooled
Fools….

Fucked.
Yuck.

They have ushered them in
They can usher them out
This despite the strain of a
Diseased heart

They
They have ushered them in
They will usher them out
They have a diseased heart

Dwell
Track Name: XIII - Death's Waveform
XIII. Death’s Waveform

Scream
as they die
inside the heat
crush confront the fire

Known shapes on these walls are only shadows
Shadows

Blurred
Bleeding out
Blurs

Death is a waveform

To be awoken while your fingers are being broken

Being, being, being
question what you know
Being, being, being
question what you know
Being, being, being
To melt under pressure

Bleeding...
Death is a waveform
Track Name: XIV - Bastard Of Hyperion
XIV. Bastard of Hyperion

Reject idolatry
Categorical identity
this mistaken reality
is a brutal distant memory

Bastard of Hyperion
I stab God’s eyes
Bastard of Hyperion
I stab God’s...

...Eyes

Distant echoes of salvation
Graves of minions
Distant echoes of salvation
Graves of legions

Bastard of Hyperion
Bastard of Hyperion
Bastard
Bastard
Track Name: XV - The Prince Of Population
XV. Prince of Population

The Prince

Now
Now that you see
You will believe
Reality is cleared with the gradual adjustment of sight
Your blanket reality is now excised

Overtake
Overthrow
Disembowel
if you Disobey

All run now!
All run now!

Rise of the fiends
Of the fiends
Of the fiends

Overtake
Overthrow
Disembowel
if you Disobey

The Prince
Track Name: XVI - Leave It To Them
XVI. Leave it to Them

Pawn
Rage
Oh, Operator

Oh, of land and long dead fathers

Corrosive
Ways
Oh, Operator

Oh, long dead fathers

Disciples trained as a means to praise
A cruel, inhuman phase
Let us degrade

Pawn
Rage

Escape blame
Far passed morality
Far past the…
...End

Leave it to them
Disciples trained to treat us as slaves
To treat us like dogs
Like dogs
Leave it to them
Track Name: XVII - Shake My Hand, Bow Down & Die
XVII. Shake My Hand, Bow Down, And Die

Look at your eye
Look in your eyes
Look it, look it, look it
Look at my eye
Look in my eyes
Look it, look it, look it

Shake my hand, bow down, and die
Shake my hand, bow down, and die

I am now one of them
You are one of them
We are all one of them...

ALL!

When crafted in a dead man’s mind
human lives don’t really matter at...

...ALL!

Shake my hand, bow down, and die
Shake my hand, bow down, and die

As Cobras mating
As Cobras killing
Tails intertwined
Slither, slither

I am one of them
You are one of them
Slither, slither

We are one them
Slither, slither

Look at my eyes
Look in my eyes
Track Name: XVIII - Dead Figurehead
XVIII. Dead Figurehead

Dead figurehead

We drank the witches poison
Amoral elixir consumption
We are impermanent
I am indifferent

Dead figurehead dead
Dead figurehead

I damn the grave polis
No populous caressed
Maniac leaders hanged in effigy
The blood of fascists
I inject in me

Dead Figurehead
Track Name: XIX - Entropy Shrine
XIX. Entropy Shrine

We segment off the population
And define power and control
We DE-activate the rights of people
And crush the nature of one’s soul

We bathe in the
In the blood
Of humans
x2

Stare too long at the sun and the sun shall melt you
Peerless mammals
Wreathed in devastation
Eternal acquiescence
E-TER-NAL
ACQUIESCENCE

Rally the flies
Rally the flies
Rally the flies
To devour the carcass

Go after life
Go after life
Go after life
Or it goes after you
Track Name: XX - Back To Halcyon
XX. Back to Halycon

It’s too late for you
It’s too late for us
It’s too late for you
It’s too late for me

I invade their sleep
And gouge out their eyes
I tear off the face
and leave only skull
...behind

To now behold the genuine substance
Even the crusts on the husk of your spine
They bleed in time
With the pulsation as you die
To now behold...

The skin
The muscle
The fibers
Slough off showing skeleton

The religions
The politics
The structures
All now decline

All of nature’s colors
Breaks off in shards
Stretching for...
Ever and ever and ever
Track Name: XXI - Telos
XXI. Telos

I request the universe and simply demand more
I ask for the ever and devastate the core

Return to matter, ash, dust, and particulate
Return to matter
Ash and dust

The past, present, and future
Splayed and disfigured
The past, present, and future
Gone.

Unfurled in tendrils
Engulfing the organic and mechanic
Like coffins of children
A cascade in decay

Yellow, whirling smoke became light

This world
I bare witness to the ending of this world
This world
I demand the ever and I decimate

It crumbles into nothing
It crumbles into everything
