Track Name: Ode to Obscurity
In silence it unravels, highways in the dark
Forever roaming further into insanity, beyond
A man in a surreal existence, covered in blood
Face to face with the personification of his demons
A black figure, whispering insane truths
Leading the way into a world unreal
Inviting him to crash and burn

A bizarre connotation with both feet in a grave
A horrified denotation as blood comes poring
...and then you will die

A man in a surreal existence, covered in blood
Face to face with his demons
A black figure, whispering insane death
Leading the way into a world unreal

A bizarre connotation with both feet in a grave
A horrified denotation as blood comes poring
...and then you will die
And then you will die
Track Name: Unction
Lifeless meat confined to a cage
Masses congregate to consecrate
Ceaseless chanting in lucid dreams
Inhumanity in recurring themes

Unction

Repercussive movements in dead flesh
Gathered here in assembly of christ

Unction
Unction

The dead rising, born again
Hell unleashed, chaos reborn
On the altar, baptized in filth
Death unknown, anointment fulfilled

Ritualistic offerings of man
Touched by angels, fucked by demons

Ritualistic offerings of man
Hell unleashed, chaos reborn
Death unknown, touched by angels
Fucked by demons
Track Name: Entheogen
Tasty bits of poisonous flies
A trifle to enter a world of meaning
I scoff at your invention
Eviscerate with surgical precision
Brewing for the ages
Exposing your weakness
Exposing your idols

Revealing your true intention
Tasty bits of esoteric visions
Savor the smell, revel in the illusion

Craving real truth
Seeking with blurred eyes
Finding reality where you expect
Questioning the embodiment
Unfailing your obsolete beliefs

A trifle to enter, stone weight return
A trifle to enter, stone weight return
Track Name: A Crutch for Consolation
Absent minds embarking in ancient rites
For reasons obscured and obsolete
A crippled herd without no direction
Walk the forgotten path
Manic relief in forsaken faces
A sign of lost times
Scriptures of horror and blistering death
Towards the rapture, as I take my final breath

In torment they will not be abandoned
Submitting to lies, submerging into doldrums
A riddle for the mute
A guide for the insane

The call of the apocalypse, final retribution
Catalyst deconstruction, death submerges

Scriptures of horror and blistering death
Towards the rapture, as I take my final breath

A veil for the blind, a chant for the deaf
A riddle for the mute, a shield for the numb
A shroud for the mind, a guide for the insane
A quest for the abject, a dance for the dead
A crutch for consolation
Track Name: Soul Maggot
Putrid puddle of larval desendance
Spun into a filamentous fate

Reality fades as arachnic fog emerges
Thence came the void that desecrates
Slimey trail of starving maggots
Carving through mentality
Every trace of sense extracted, caving in reality
Empty shell of concave meaning
Sunken eyes, glaring stalely

Yearning for the final silence
Shut-in by the numbing veil
Heir of mutant legacy
The sea of fog redeems

A fluxing gleam of clarity in labyrints of shattered dreams
A fluxing gleam of clarity in labyrints of shattered dreams
Soul maggot, soul maggot, SOUL MAGGOT

Reality fades as arachnic fog emerges
Thence came the void that desecrates
Slimey trail of starving maggots
Carving through mentality
Every trace of sense extracted, caving in reality
Empty shell of concave meaning
Sunken eyes, glaring stalely
Track Name: Grains
Consideration, construction
Deconstruction, determination

Know your escape route as bridges fall apart
Kneel when the unknown knocks on your door

Beware, as the trivial becomes ominous

Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess
Choice of impossibilities
Decisions to be made

When was I left alone in this desert?
Ages came and went
Trying to work it out

Promises like dry grains in my hands
Searching for a drop of water
Track Name: Obsession
Passion, in hate is passion, in disgust is passion

Obsession, in obsession is clarity, in obsession is absolution

Rapturous praise
Surging waves
Sublime aesthetics

Obsession, in obsession is clarity, in obsession is absolution

Serenity in numbers, passion in obscurity
Calling my name, in obsession is passion

Serenity in numbers, passion in obscurity
Calling my name, in obsession is passion

Rapturous praise
Surging waves
Sublime aesthetics
Someone you've met before

Serenity in numbers, passion in obscurity
Calling my name, in obsession is passion

In obsession is passion
Track Name: Left in Scorn
Ghouls, rotten to the marrow, prone to prophet's vagary
Skeptics tremble by the scepter that grants life eternally
Tolling in the distant background, summoning the bold and meek
A voice unending, yet unheard of, calls on all who cannot see

Empyrean quest a nightmare has been born
Eternal tribulation
Stench of rotten flesh, no savior reborn
Forever lost in scorn

Empyrean quest a nightmare has been born
Eternal tribulation, forever lost in scorn

Dolorum ipsum quia
Locus deperditus
Libera te tutemet ex inferis

Ghouls, rotten to the marrow, prone to prophet's vagary
Skeptics tremble by the scepter that grants life eternally
Tolling in the distant background, summoning the bold and meek
A voice unending, yet unheard of, calls on all who cannot see
Track Name: High Priest
Born into ignorance
Raised in delusions of madmen
Sin, fear and eternal damnation kept humanity at bay
Prayer kept reality away
Mental slave, scarred child of god

Skin, flesh and bones are all vain
After-life awaits in all its glory
Humanity denied, mentally deprived
In acid revelations, absolution is mine

High on fairy mushrooms of gods
Flaming visions of the high priest
On my quest for redemption
Humanity is left behind

High priest, high priest
High priest, high priest

Soldier in a godless war
My body is my flaming weapon
My dubious salvation will bring you all down
