Track Name: Cult of the Void
CULT OF THE VOID

Darkness upon you as Earth turns it's last
Swallowed and lost in the dark void's grasp
Into the nothing it all becomes clear
Complete absolution from that which you fear

Live in neat little rows
Everyone do what you're told
Blind like to follow the blind
Follow no one speak your own mind

Sheep and cattle you all make me sick
Slit all your throats drain all that is toxic
Sacrifice that which you don't need
The message in blood becomes easy to read

Live in neat little rows
Everyone do what you're told
Blind like to follow the blind
Follow no one speak your own mind

Falsehoods and hypocrites you can't deny
Born from the fire that consumes your life
Believe in anything you think saves your soul
Bargain and trade but time takes its toll
Promise the world beg on your knees
Time and yourselves your worst enemies
A change is at hand nothing you can do
You've all played a part to seal your own doom
Track Name: Ruination
RUINATION

Fevered thoughts like rusty razors graze my flesh
Reality grips like hooks inside me causing labored breath
My throat a desert clouds of dust as I exhale
Vocal chords now bleeding spew the chorus of my despair

Kingdom gone
We are alone
Ruination

With burning eyes I view my world in infrared
Fires inspire the hold of demons who put them there
My fingers burn at the touch of your tortured skin
I scream as my lifeblood boils deep within

Kingdom gone
I am alone
Ruination

A withered spirit the toils of time has ripped to shreds
The tears that fall scorch the dead ground in crimson red
With my last breath I curse the coming of dawn
Unfiltered rays of light burn the ground I stand upon

Kingdom gone
There is no one
Ruination
Track Name: Malevolent Imprint
MALEVOLENT IMPRINT

Step inside and you will see
That behind the walls that bleed
Hides a sinister energy
The malevolent imprint feeds on you

Unseen eyes watch through mirrors and panes
The grandeur long lost in the winds and the rains
The door creaks open with fifty years gone
The dead cell awakes to the new flesh and blood

Step inside and you will see
That behind the walls that bleed
Hides a sinister energy
The malevolent imprint feeds on you

A hatred resounds amidst distant screams
The imprint is hewn in the plaster and beams
You do not stand alone in these halls
The ghosts of the past lie in wait for you all

Step inside and you will see
That behind the walls that bleed
Hides a sinister energy
The malevolent imprint feeds on you

Is it just a house or the jaws of the beast
The whispered prayers spoke won't protect in the least
Run for your life as evil takes chase
But there's no sanctuary in this unholy place

Step inside and you will see
That behind the walls that bleed
Hides a sinister energy
The malevolent imprint feeds on you

Now it's much too late to plot an escape
Your life force taken and your soul drained away
Never will you see the day
Never will you leave this place
Never will you get away
Never
Never

Step inside and you will see
That behind the walls that bleed
Hides a sinister energy
The malevolent imprint feeds on you
Track Name: Darkest Obsidian
DARKEST OBSIDIAN

Victims and slaves born to the grave
Hateful eyes watch as we wither away
Man is enslaved in a deadly embrace
No one to trust no one to save

Carved in the runes a message of doom
Prophecy bends to interpretation
All is described a sinister lie
Is mankind bound to predestination

The reapers bow down
And pledge to the crown
Stars flung from the sky
Our chaotic demise
The path has been paved
Foretold and engraved
The harbinger is cast
Of darkest obsidian

You all wanted this so choke it all down
Sow the seeds and demons wings will drag you to the ground
Nero play your fiddle as everything burns down
Heavens light won't find its place on this soiled ground

The reapers bow down
And pledge to the crown
Stars flung from the sky
Our chaotic demise
The path has been paved
Foretold and engraved
The harbinger is cast
Of darkest obsidian
Track Name: Aristocracy of Lies
ARISTOCRACY OF LIES

Deep inside take a look
You've read the truth in history books
Between the lines it's clear
A distant time a distant place
A memory a hidden face
You don't know what's out there

Searching for the answer key
The answers lie in you and me
You've been told what to believe
The facts aren't clear but those who know
Will keep the truth to keep control
So on through time it goes

History is made a fact
By those with power - aristocrats
Their half-truths and fearful reign
Leave none to learn from past mistakes

With lies they'll blind you all
Tell them who's responsible
Their lies and secrecy
Destroy man and his legacy

On a quest the only goal
To find that which the past has stole
Make the world aware
Underneath conspiracy
Another lie in history
You know the truth is out there

Searching for the answer key
The answers lie in you and me
You've been told what to believe
The facts aren't clear but those who know
Will keep the truth to keep control
So on through time it goes

History is made a fact
By those with power - aristocrats
Their half-truths and fearful reign
Leave none to learn from past mistakes

With lies they'll blind you all
Tell them who's responsible
Their lies and secrecy
Destroy man and his legacy
Track Name: Nocturnity
NOCTURNITY

We live in churning waves of hate
Inscribed in walls that we create
Inside the laws we put in place
There lies the means that went astray
The spoils of life are far and few
The tide is coming back to you
No chains restrain the coursing rage
The bitter seeds of yesterday

Absence of light
Total demise

Our fear is breeding war machines
We're living far beyond our means
Wars fought in the name religion
A fucking joke the world we live in
Contempt is growing far and wide
Like blades that cut from side to side
Hate flows like a river running red
Can't win the war inside your head
We're trapped inside these living lies
No one cares and no one tries
Our dreams are cast in broken glass
The only hope is fading fast

Absence of light
Total demise

The world will suffer pestilence
All at the price of ignorance
Reflections coming from the past
We're never to escape perhaps
Darkness growing like a mold
Overwhelming stranglehold
The future doesn't look too bright
Forever night

Absence of light
Total demise
Track Name: Eternity at a Glance
ETERNITY AT A GLANCE

A common profanity
This human malady
Searching to find a way
Out of his own device
Willing to pay the price
By ending his life today

Clutching with helpless hands
Idle shell of a man
In grueling intensity
The weight of his swift decline
Crushes him from inside
Unfathomed immensity
Watching with sullen eyes
The crow's foot intensifies
Inhuman reality
Reflections call out to you
Mirror man reaches to
A fragile mortality

Born into suffering
Through windows of regret
Hope has a ghost of a chance
Life flashed before him
As reality grows dim
Eternity at a glance

A common profanity
This human malady
Searching to find a way
Out of his own device
Willing to pay the price
By ending his life today

The vastness becoming
Unwelcome and numbing
Flashing like second sight
Helplessly falling
Claws reaching and mauling
Pulling him from the light
The body decaying
Eternity claiming
Conditions of human strife
Emotions like crossing swords
Emptiness reaching toward
Renewal of passing life

Born into suffering
Through windows of regret
Hope has a ghost of a chance
Life flashed before him
As reality grows dim
Eternity at a glance
Track Name: Wormtongue
WORMTONGUE

Creating an accidental maze
Trapped inside your every phrase
No way out not a chance
With forked tongue out you dare to speak
Bending ears of all within your reach
Time to pay the consequence

No more can be trusted now
Your empty words make not a sound
Struggle just to free themselves
Like a gunshot in the head
They are caught up in your web

With every breath decay and ruin
Your putrid stink fills all with doom
Plug their ears to what you say
Lead all astray for your own gain
The ones you hurt will never be the same
Never stop until you pay

A growing rage begins to seed
Pushing past insanity
Past the point of no return
Don't believe the things you said
They are caught up in your web

Lies beget lies back to the core
Deceit seeps from your every pore
Burning inside the hell you've raised
Disease has risen the lord of plagues
Left alone to face the truth
When waves of shame devour you

No one here can save you now
They hear your empty pleas resound
Hoping just to free yourself
When the bullet meets your head
