Track Name: Somerset
Dying gods in a vacuum of space
Another victim of this time continuance
None other than the delusion, the revenant
How many stars have to die
Before perceived existence is wiped clean
Purification will come in form of perpetual sleep

Eye in the sky fall, why don’t you try
I stand by, fall, cry and watch

As exodus awaits us
Transmigrate into walking comas
We become the gods within tombs ensanguined

Eye in the sky fall, why don’t you try
I stand by, fall, cry and watch you
Die in the sky, fall, why don’t you try
I stand by, fall, cry and watch you die

I wake to find this infinite design is my final failure
My past is always with me through the ages
I watched you tear yourself apart
From afar it was the most beautiful sight
Decipher the encryptions of a decaying mind

Eye in the sky fall, why don’t you try
I stand by, fall, cry and watch you
Die in the sky, fall, why don’t you try
I stand by, fall, cry and watch you

From afar it was the most beautiful sight
I’m walking away leaving this world behind
Track Name: Absolutions Arrival
Laid upon this pyre
Foreshadowing absolutions arrival
Judgments from the surrounding gravity
The black holes that are our minds consume everything
We will not be exonerated of our guilt
Gazing into the whirlpool of those branded hollow
Let it all burn
This wasn’t ours to hold to begin with
Forever they, they will go unforgiven
Unforgiven

Blackened sky, never ending ash rain
Laid upon this pyre
Inherit this despoiled burial
Seeping through the soil
I feel the weakness
Foreshadowing absolutions arrival
They pray to be absolved

Gazing into the whirlpool of those branded hollow
Let it all burn
This wasn’t ours to hold to begin with
forever they, they will go unforgiven
Unforgiven

Gazing into the whirlpool of those branded hollow
Let it all burn
This wasn’t ours to hold to begin with
Forever they, they will go unforgiven
Unforgiven

The pinnacle, the beacon of light
We’ve crushed in the wake of elation
What more can we hope for in dire times
The death of hope is all we have
Track Name: Pale Horse
Life has been your imprisonment
Death is the only release

Sunless worlds know all too well
The will of the purveyor of despair
The morose gods shan’t intervene
To save what is already lost

There will be no warning
There will be no fucking time for you to run away
There will be no burial
No obituary
Dissipate and fate away

All life upon this forsaken world
Will witness the horror
Of kinetic bombardment
The cataclysm they face
There won’t be a light
They will not mourn for you
Bestowed the cold hands of impunity
A supreme being
Divine retribution is descending upon me

So far gone
Repudiated entirely
You’ll find forgiveness in death
But they will not mourn for you
I would let billions die
To rid this place of disease
I would let billions die
To rid this place of one infectious seed
You instead of me
Track Name: Elysian
We are sentenced to the stars
With smirking hope and a face full of scars
We run reckless divine course to the church of remorse
From faith we divorce

And we rage for days and days
Cause’ we thought if we screw we’d get through and sway
Forget the things we say and the lines we rehearsed
Our empty hearse

Cause’ the years they take dreams away
That we plot and we try to make true some day
Regret the things we say and the fields we traverse
Blue neck curse

Stare at me with the broken face of the moon
The light of the stars glow with such saturnine
The wind speaks in strange languages
Which only those who know will understand
The broken face of the moon graces me with its presence
This ritual has gone on far too long and I’m ready to see

I have wandered this holy sanctum
And there is nothing to be found
What a foolish notion to put yourself
In such careless hands
By what right do you have to take this from me
Time will come and this will pass
Until frost is all that remains
Show me what lies beneath
And I’ll give your title to every star I gaze upon

Eternally with me in a tomb of space
Track Name: Seek Misery
I walk the passage to salvation
Where others tremble
In the wake of revivification

Cause’ I have reached the end of what this world has to offer
This plane so obscene, I have found my place off the face of this earth
Cause’ “sanity is for the weak”

I have offered the key to absolution
Still you seek misery
Our prosperity awaits us in the ground
Grotesque orisons flood the universe

I left it behind but
Still seek misery
I have brought you back
But still you condemn me

I walk the passage to salvation
Where others tremble
In the wake of revivification

Cause’ I have reached the end of what this world has to offer
This plane so obscene, I have found my place off the face of this earth
Cause’ “sanity is for the weak”
Track Name: Perdition
You said you would come back for me
And I’ll wait an eternity more

You swore to bring me back
But our sequence was all out of line
Drifting amongst the company of dust
We don’t coincide in unity
I can’t become just another note on this page
Waiting for my chance to illuminate
So terribly out of reach

An eternity alone
I’ll wait for an eternity more
You said you would come back for me
And I’ll wait for an eternity more

You told me to leave what’s buried in the ground
Never to resurface
Will the universe even notice
Will the absence of life be felt
I can’t become just another imperfection
In this image you’ve painted
In this pyschodrome you’ve created

I chose the kiss of death over the essence of the cosmos
Leave what’s buried in the ground
Only leaving remnants of my mind
Play your song of death and send me to sleep
To sleep

I could never repay you
Time after time of hearing you sing
In my dreams I see it so clearly
We’re forever doomed to re-enact our failures
If you leave me here I’ll be crushed
Under the weight, under the weight of regret

An eternity alone
I’ll wait for an eternity more
You said you would come back for me
And I’ll sit and watch and wait for an eternity more

An eternity alone
You swore to bring me back
But our sequence was all out line
Drifting amongst the company of dust
We don’t coincide in unity
Even if I found my culmination
Would it even be enough
Even if I clawed my way to the surface
Would I even reach it in time
Track Name: A Fire Inside
Intrinsic rebirth, born under a black sun
We chiselled the words of god
Into our foundations for aeons to come
Till’ we ourselves become ancients

If not remembered everything will mourn
So that we shall return to the tombs of which we came
Isolated within stone and a chronological grave
Counsel us for we heed these words
These prophetic dreams

Everything will mourn

We beckon what’s to come
Another timeless cycle
As the eternal night approaches

When it’s over we won’t see the end
Not in our lifetime or nor theirs
Slept through the times we are lost once again
We beg of thee brethren unveil our eyes

I have seen the edge of the world
I have seen the divinity
That keeps a fire inside
As we are born into perpetual night

When it’s over we won’t see the end
Not in our lifetime or nor theirs
Slept through the times we are lost once again
We beg of thee brethren unveil our eyes
Track Name: God Particle
Our heresy forever stained into this blood red galaxy
The hunger it creates cannot be satisfied
Time doesn’t remember nor do gods forget
No respite, our tranquillity has been denied

Do you really think this is the only body you’ll come to know
Experiencing my self in reflections I’ve never seen before
Locked within this gulf of time with no means to redeem
My purity lies beyond this withered realm

Eternity cannot wait to take me
Not of my image not of theirs

My fears manifold, tell me will they watch over me
The ultimate fate unfolds, as they direct my movement
Lead me towards the blinding light
Incomprehensible imagery
The body fails to embrace this blessing

I see the coming shadow the path of cosmic steps
Bridge the gap between the lunacy I’ve afflicted
And my withered mind
Pestilence breather you bring forth heretical ideologies
Eternity cannot wait to take me

Infect all feed of the rotting body of hope
Our heresy forever stained into this blood red galaxy

Do you really think this is the only body you’ll come to know
Experiencing my self in reflections I’ve never seen before
Locked within this gulf of time with no means to redeem
My purity lies beyond this withered realm
Track Name: Eldritch Light
Where do you get the nerve to speak on behalf of those chained to heavens
Faith has never been sufficient enough to carry this on
Take me I’m ready, tear me apart

If death is what you seek no one can it away from you
What you perceive to be real can only survive
Inside a damaged mind
The frost is so inviting, seeking eldritch light
Being held within feel the essence of the bitter end

If I’m denied the right
To hold this world in my hands
And I’ll hold it accountable
and squeeze the hope out of them
As they have done to me
Succumb body, mind and soul
The reaping of the crop
As they have done to me

If death is what you seek no one can it away from you
What you perceive to be real can only survive
Inside a damaged mind
The frost is so inviting, seeking eldritch light
Being held within feel the essence of the bitter end
We saw it written in the stars
beckoning us forward
Restricted by the burden of physical boundaries
Not even deities escape inevitability
Can you feel the impending wraith

If I’m denied the right to hold this world in my hands
As their souls are forged into the ever blinding abyss
We had within our grasp, we let it slip away
In the wake of rapture

The reckoning came in floods
Of intangible occurrences
The sky will open wide
Pouring down
The guilt we feel
Will outlast our children
Destined to return to the dirt of which we sunk into
The grains of time keep falling
Track Name: i Nyx
This world doesn’t stand a chance
As the ash cloud approaches
I have a backseat to this theatrical array
(Nuclear winter)
A gift from gods past
We are naught, we are dust in the wind
(I have seen the light)
Seen the light at the end of the tunnel
Extinguished to nihil
Track Name: ii Erebus
I haven’t seen a form
None worthy of the gift, the gift of life
It won’t be too long, ‘til our true faces come to show
Gaze upon the wreckage you seek, fuck the meek
Who abide to ancient words
Let this fill you, praise thee
This wound for all prying eyes to see

What have they done to you
I left myself embedded in those
Who reflect my repugnant image
Is it so obscene to star
At the abyss of the forerunner
An untold time lapse
Of creation and failure

I am the rotting star you once gazed upon
After all I’ve done for you, you despise me
Wraith will reign down upon this planet

I haven’t seen a form
None worthy of the gift, the gift of life
It won’t be too long, ‘til our true faces come to show
Gaze upon the wreckage you seek, fuck the meek
Who abide to ancient words
Let this fill you, praise thee
This wound for all prying eyes to see

Genuflect to a god of obsidian

In the coming moments I feel the end
It beckons me forth into the light
The truth die within me
How could I abandon my children
How could they abandon me
Within this shell my failures are always with me
I can feel the entirety of my soul burning

I haven’t seen a form
None worthy of the gift, the gift of life
It won’t be too long, until our true faces come to show
Gaze upon the wreckage you seek, fuck the meek
Who abide to ancient words
Let this fill you, praise thee
This wound for all prying eyes to see
Track Name: Status Cross
She got that cold-eyed stare with permanent fixture
Snorting lines we throw out and don't sing
She smiles and politely says, "today there's no rapture
It's the end, and your bells, they don't ring"

As my blood runs cold and turns to dust
In the end even the gods will abandon us

"Don't let me sail into my black hole, messiah
Please let me find my heaven, my king"
She laughs and says, "Son, I'm the denier,
It's the end, and your bells, they don't ring"

As my heart grows old and turns to rust
In the end even death will reject us
Track Name: Tiberian Sun
Bathed in the light of borrowed life
We cling to hope in a hopeless time
The voices of the non-existent
Will echo through the infinite

The voyager came in the gift of famine
In the guise of an offering
A millennia will pass and only sand will remain

This world will crumble in ignominy
Looked down upon in disdain from the heavens
We are no longer instruments of their will
In the end even the gods will abandon us

Time is the decrepit mistress drenched in regret
The dead stars don’t speak of a foreseeable future
We leave nothing but a carrion mess
Ailing forward at the gates, we find we have been denied
In the end even death will reject us
