Track Name: Coiled Destiny
...Never ending
...Time out of mind
My heresy, my coiled destiny
...abbadon
...inferno
Left unblessed, My soul will never rest

My flesh decays, into dirt. My final attempts have failed to convert.
Into the pitch, redemption’s a myth, before my acension an impossible rift
My senses fade, the demon awaits, in my death bed, the future erased
I face this alone, for sin I could just not atone

no gates, no angels, no promised land await
left alone for fiends to judge my fate
no concept of time im left to toil
in hellfire my blood boils

nothing is real, poisoned mind, in a prison of madness I wait confined
rotting essence, endless abyss, the seas of blight I cease to exist
non existence, a boundless void, whats left of my soul, soon destroyed
I face this alone, eternal damnation on my own
Track Name: Slipping Into Perversion
Inside the mind
thoughts are twisted into something not mine
Within the soul, sickness, disgust and hatred devine
how could I grow into something so sick, I’ve changed into something I cannot permit.
Festering thoughts, of the old me, I’ve all but forgot
Perverted and queer
no power to control this fear
I’ve lost any good I may once have enjoyed, My heart is twisted my soul is a void

once again
felt the vile
rise in me
final days

whatever the cause, I cannot relate,
I reach for salvation but now it's too late
hands in blood, actions now speak,
doomed to live out this horrifying fate

Inside the mind
thoughts are twisted into something not mine
Within the soul, sickness, disgust and hatred divine
how could I grow into something so sick, I’ve changed into something I cannot permit.
Festering thoughts, of the old me, I’ve all but forgot
Track Name: Fabricated
Can’t feel, Can’t think
I transcend
the boundaries meant to keep order
Another step in evolution
No control, No soul

Dual lives, night and day
Concealed in darkness
Can’t stop, Can’t escape
The sewers beneath your city
I prey on your faith
Taking life, Taking sacrament
Track Name: Hopeless
This life will fade.
Our dreams will die.
How long until we meet the end of our lives?
This curse of a life that haunts me every day
will soon come to its untimely end.
The realization of our own mortality
a curse placed upon the entire human race.

Every time I clear my mind I'm reminded
of my impending death.
This world is nothing
our time together means nothing.
In the end
this life ... amounts to nothing.
Track Name: War In Heaven
Locked inside my mind
Afore any crucifixion
Contention for paradise
No safety for benediction

Pull your god
from his throne
Exile from
Elysium

No longer fated
The flesh unrestrained

A false idol
has been undone
Deliverance
hereafter
Track Name: Synthesis Of Paranoia
Fever, the first god of man, the cycle repeats itself
in lust of the Christ, the hobbled and the torn
feeble, the reigns of power, unused and incorrect
saints of the final word, barren and alone

the confidence is blinding
willing to suffer behind
the veil

of the father

first born, of blood and wine, the creator’s fantasy
perverted and confused, twisted in denial
sickened now, by my own disguise
hounds of the one below, corrupted and impure

the confidence is blinding
willing to suffer behind
the veil

of the father

my way is such, confounded by the fruit, just as those before me. what’s so special about the secure, the Devine is a lonely nothing with all but fear in its eyes. Considerable thought has been put into futile attempts to repulse the feelings meant of my kind. Damaged beyond repair, we limp through this expanse.
Track Name: Mortal Sermon
Chore all this life, just getting by, waste all your time then you die.
My place was set before I was born, all the dreams I had were just lies.
Mass never notice, never ask why, but I will not be blind
Aware of existence, not civilization, must break shackles that bind.

Take what you want and don’t ever think twice
Indulge in the worldly, you have but one life
This verse of the devil, to keep you awake
To forgo this fear, your final mistake

World of man, there will be no change, at least not for my eyes to see.
Call it selfishness, call it disease, I now control my own destiny.
I am keen to the scam, and I understand, I know I’ll be alright.
Sick of your causes, I won’t explain, I’ll live my own fucking life.

Shed everything that you know
Unlearn society's plans, my eyes have seen
my way out
Existence
Forgotten
Track Name: In The Council Of Demons
In the council of demons, the mind is warped, what can i do? i am only a man, frail and meak, in the face of such power

I’ve lost control. No longer do I live for myself.
Who pulls the strings. My life just fades away.
In the council of Demons, the mind is warped
what can I do?

I can feel them inside...inside of me
unspeakable torment...I perpetrate
the nightmare begins...as I enter darkness
as long as my heart beats I know...

ill be enslaved the menace feeds on my soul.
Now I prey for death to bring to me
salvation.
in congregations of evil I cease to exist

I have only just entered this nightmare. The incubus will not relent. I let myself go. Feel myself fall, I am no more. The humanity in me has been replaced. Replaced by evil and spite. I cannot fight back, not in the face of such power. Such power.
Track Name: Visions
I’ve been released ...
Upon your world
my vengeance
will be anything but swift

A thousand years
of terror
that’s my promise
onto you

Running through my head
I take life away
Its everyday
I hope It never ends

As it becomes
reality
I can taste
your fear

drawing
closer
seizing
closure
Track Name: Altus Proditio
Trapped in a spiral, downward we fall, unaware of the doom that awaits
we are all victims of the perfect fucking plan

we have been deceived
born into a lie

the seeds of this treason
have been in place
thousands of years
there is no escape
powers that be
but not understood
you’ll just keep living
they knew that you would

passed down through generations

we have been conned
conceived to follow

no end in sight
slipping below
hard to believe
but nobody knows
this shell of a
society
exists to keep
us in line

passed down through generations

In the shadows, they roam
the conspiracy grows
humanity...bought and sold
only whispers ever heard
we die.
Track Name: Swine
Prey on the weak
you cant prey on me
my strength sets me apart
from your disease

always on the prowl
you serpent, you vulture

I’ll cut your fucking heart out
blackened with lies
you cant fuck with my head anymore
you’re all I despise

cross the line
infernal seraph

and I am never coming back again
Unless to exact upon you my revenge
count your blessings as you destroy lives
but don’t you count on me.
I’m beyond this world and I am far beyond your pathetic control.

Beyond Your Fucking Control
Track Name: Beyond Reality
Changing Face
gone without trace
Bleeding this transition
waiting
There is no coming back
not this time
all my life I couldn’t see
the simple truth right in front of me
and there is no stopping this
mutation

Worlds Crashing
My final dream.
Butchered, like those before
lingering
There is no coming back
not this time
all my life I couldn’t see
the simple truth right in front of me

No last chance at right
No such thing as love
No more anything

Suddenly, the floor beneath my feet falls away.
Now I'm left
To take a step beyond
reality
