Track Name: Death Relic
Death Relic

Monument of ruin
Apparatus of dissent and plague
Relic of dissolution
Mechanism of hate and pain

Pursued for centuries
Desolate in the thread of time
Eclipsed in memory
Yet easy to find

Where the pendulum swings
Death is sure to follow
We are rot
We are hollow

When the vulture sings
There will be no tomorrow
We are naught
We are sorrow

Embracing night as quiet rides the tide
Intoxicating as the light subsides

The ancient idol pries into their eyes
Swaying silently from side to side

Eyes fixated on the archaic mark of eternal rest
I pray that the day will end in death
I have waited just to say this with my final breath
Take me now into the vulture’s nest

When they find their mark
Let the arms take their harvest
When the sky goes dark
Let the swarm take the body
Track Name: Annihilus
Annihilus

I am the bearer of extinction
The equal opposite of your divine
Eliminate without distinction
Still I’m suspicious of my own design

Cosmic control
At the crossroads of infinity
I am The Living Death That Walks
Fall beneath my feet or you will learn to fear me

When I bring upon the end, it's the fucking end
I will resurrect the dead just so I can watch them die again

Women and children first

No more generations
, No more birth

Women and children first

Remove humanity from the earth

Annihilation wave
Laid to rest inside a cosmic grave
Inhaled by the clouded void
Exhaled
Destroyed

The celestial hand strikes
Purging the universe of life
Nothing left but molecular mist

Crushed to dust

The celestial hand strikes
Purging the universe of life
Nothing left but molecular mist

Living death
Harbinger of the end

I grip the ground so hard that it's pulling back my fingernails
You'll never tear me away
This world is mine to destroy

Never pull a predator from prey

You'll never live to see the day
You'll never tear me away
Track Name: The World, The Flesh, and The Devil
The World, The Flesh, and The Devil

Crucified by hate
Baptized in the bowels of fate
Sacrificed by the lies
Perpetrated by saints

I exist through the trespasses and the sins that you live
Consuming everything and anyone with nothing to give

I am the inverse of god
The antithesis of the omnipotent fraud
Eat of my flesh and be fulfilled
To taste of a god is to starve

The watchful eye has decayed
A rotting brain
Every synapse is fucking frayed
Dead to a dying world

Dead master
Dead slaves

Searching endlessly for signs
Blind following blind
Entire lives of wasted time
Follow the hive mind

I call upon the king of sorrow
To curse your days
Both yesterday and tomorrow
No one will hear your cries now
Choke on all your lies now

Anger reborn

I call upon the king of sorrow
To curse your days
Both yesterday and tomorrow
No one will hear your cries now
Choke on all your lies now

The sins of the flesh reflect
On the progress of my reign
Give in to the flesh
Give in to the hate
Give in to fucking pain

Do what thou wilt
Shall be the whole of the law
Hate is the law
Hate under will

Anger reborn

Crucified by hate
Baptized in the bowels of fate
Sacrificed by the lies
Perpetrated by saints

I exist through the trespasses and the sins that you live
Consuming everything and anyone with nothing to give

I am the inverse of god
The antithesis of the omnipotent fraud
Eat of my flesh and be fulfilled
To taste of a god is to starve
Track Name: Fearmonger
Fearmonger

We are all afraid
And fear is what makes us hate
We spend our fucking lives crushed under its weight
We try to dig our way out but it's too late

There's no escape

Buried deep in our trepidation
Festering in our putrid shit
Cultivating abomination
Digging deeper into the pit

Gilded eyes rest upon the abyss
Profiting from an age of darkness

No love lost here
No regard for a merchant of fear

Control through unrest
A parasitic leeching of life
The tower bears his golden name
And answers only to the eye

See it looming in the distance
A lurker above and below
For us to cower under
For us to blindly follow

We are awake, though you’ve sewn our fucking eyelids
Even asleep, we can see straight through the blindness
You can seal our lips, but don’t expect us to be silent
Our voice is a voice of violence

Live in fear for us
Expect no mercy
We are merciless

Cower in fear for us
There is no mercy
We are merciless
Track Name: Brundlefly
Brundlefly

There is a bug in the machine
Disrupting sequence of design
Subverting without being seen
Pushing us further into decline

Breathe in the smoke screen
Inhale the fucking disease

The fog has lifted
But our lungs are still infected
We are blind to the hands over our eyes
Desensitized to the crimes of the mind

Try to resist the effects of the contamination
But struggling will only make it worse
It has been resting deep inside you in hibernation
Waiting for the key component to disperse

Detected too late to determine
How much time
Until we die

Our existence is a burden
We shouldn’t be
Kept alive

No empathy among vermin
Swarms of flies
Cloud your eyes

No prayer, no sermon
We have to die
So fucking die

Bitch

Check my pulse
No heartbeat to find
Dead to humanity
Dead to time
