Track Name: Chthonic Chasm
Breaking down the walls of this well kept cavity.
Living in this world is just a once off fallacy.

You need to wake up.

Any resistance and then we're done.
Admit the truth and then we're...

gone from this world, eradication.
Split within this transformation.

We need to wake up.

Total resistance to this.
Total persistence for this.

Dragged down for eternity.
Building up all uncertainty.
Realisation in conformity.
Eliminating the minority.

The chasm, it casts
a shadow that lasts.
We move towards the Sun.
Traveling one by one.
With a chasm so vast,
Hiding atrocities from the past.
Now appearing from the mist,
A power we can't resist.

We've found the scroll, to save our souls.
We've found the scroll, to sell our souls.
Track Name: War Prophecy
Guard the plans from our destroyer.
Erase all curiosity so lock the room and man the tower.
Pick out any seeds of doubt.
The mind is not a vessel that can be cut out with a knife.
Even death has a heart and it pumps new life.

Rejecting fear.
Combining our might.
Embracing hope.
Rejecting the war prophecy.

She's reaching for my soul inside.
Death of life is where she resides.
Leeching on like a parasite.
Waiting on a new paradise.
She is pushing me away, towards the edge of darkness.
I am slipping away, so broken and so heartless.

Don't dance in the darkness.
You may stumble or fall, you might lose it all.
Don't stare at the sunlight.
You may lose control, you might reveal it all.

Rejecting fear.
Combining our might.
Embracing hope.
Rejecting the war prophecy.
Track Name: Revelations
Run!

Sneak into the chambers at night.
Watch out for guards, they will kill you on sight.
Take the scroll and get away from here.
Bring it to her with no shame or fear.

"To your King, read it here,
The revelations that I hold dear.
A new war, is drawing near.
You must prepare before the end of this year.
She breathes new life, into someone new.
She will bring new strife, these tales are true.
Fear her words, "all men shall fall."
Escape now, before she devours us all."

She lifts me up,
She brings me down.
She stares at me,
She makes me see.
Track Name: The Crypt Of The Death Prophet
I have been searching these dark caves for days.
To take just one last long look into her eyes.
The image of her imprints onto my mind and stays.
I hope my revelations will be to her surprise.

Forsaken. She seeks the righteous path.
Forgiven. She completes me. She completes me.

I lift up the crypt to see her face.
Her lifeless body laid out with such grace.
Now I can travel and tell the people I've met.
That I can still hear her whisper...
"I am DEATH."

She rises from the tomb and now stands so tall.
Unravel the dreaded scroll to reveal it all.
I'm the first to witness her glorious resurrection.
I'll be the first to embrace her ways of perfection.

She moves. She turns.
She looks. She sings.
She bleeds. She flees.
She screams.

I lift up the crypt to see her face.
Her lifeless body laid out with such grace.
Now I can travel to tell the people I've met.
That I can still hear her whisper..."I am DEATH."

And I'll wait here for you.
But I've waited too long.
And so here I'll wait for you.

I lift up the crypt to see her face.
Her lifeless body laid out with such grace.
Now I can travel and tell the people I've met.
That I can still hear her whisper...
"I am DEATH."
"I am DEATH."
Track Name: Banshee Remnants
Screaming banshee remnants
floating around her aura.
Rotting undead skin is
pealing from their bones.
Obeying all her orders,
binded with pure sorrow.
Piercing eerie hymns are
projecting out her horrors.

Burning silence, a hole to survive in.
Wretched flesh, cold bones inside and
weeping souls with no hope, no guidance.
Dying days with no one to believe in.

Burning silence, a hole to survive in.
Wretched flesh, cold bones inside and
weeping souls with no hope, no guidance.
Dying days with no one to believe in.

We prayed for them.
From poisoned roots we stem.

Sick, sick with hunger as we make our way through Autumn skies.
A new feeling strikes me which signals one last final landslide.
Under the tree of temptation, waiting here for her reprise.
Before our very own eyes, we lay witness to Edens demise.
Faith is set, dream of death,
these signs should bring us closer to God.
I'm not the one, I'm not your only son, a complete total fraud.
You set off this world, cursing it to spread all these lies.
Now I wait for her to shed sweet tears from her divine eyes.
Track Name: Sonus Mortis
My God, My Savior,
Is all faith, in danger, in my heart, in my mind?
The last of his own kind.

I cradle the ashes just to feel alive.
The mirror image that distorts inside.

Obsession from the start binds
Weak minds and weak hearts.
So push them to the vanguard.
Just some lives that we discard.

Your mind is a cupboard and I stock the shelves.
Build your own cage in order to trap yourself.

And we lift up, the liars cup.
Drinking until our lungs, fill up.
So here's a toast, to, who drowns the most.
Sever the connection, to the host.

Sever the connection, to the host.
Sever the connection, to the host.

The walls are closing in.
Time to take your last breath.
Pulsating waves so clear.
The sound of death draws near.

Future, discard.
Caught, off guard.
All Wounds all scars.
worthless all bound
to me, head down.
Raise up all arms.
Forward march towards this light.
I think this is my final goodnight.

The walls are closing in.
Time to take your last breath.
Pulsating waves so clear.
The sound of death draws near.

Signs of relief from this God or any God?
Seeking release from this God or any God.
Signs of relief from this God or any God?
Seeking release from this God or any God.
Track Name: Mass Exodus
Always on the run.
Since this war begun.
Bodies rotting from the sun.
What has this world become?

Why don't you join us?
Join us in this mass exodus.
You should really join us and leave with this mass exodus.
Track Name: The Rise Of The Obsidian Destroyer
The earth moves with us.
The prophet hears my voice.
Fearing that she has summoned the greatest,
Warrior ever known,
The seeds have been sown.
Growing in the death of our Savior.

We hide below by the riverside.
But she cracks open the mountain so wide.
The holes split into a thousand sun beams.
She hovers closer to address us it seems.
She says.....
"There will be no mercy.
There will be a new prophecy.
There will never be mercy.
So I call upon..."

Obsidian!
The Obsidian Destroyer.
I call upon Obsidian!
The rise of the Obsidian Destroyer.

You, you try, to judge me like we're all the same.
This is not, an easy or simplified game.
Take a step back and take one long look in your shattered, mirror.
You and your perfect glass bleeds into my skin and cuts, my heart.
Just constantly stabbing at all, my thoughts.
So fragile we call for a quick end and mercy from

Obsidian!
The Obsidian Destroyer.
I call upon Obsidian!
The rise of the Obsidian Destroyer.
Run!

Forever broken.
Forever doomed.

We are forever damned.
We are forever broken.
We are forever lost.
We are forever doomed.
Track Name: Memento Mori
Life is short and death comes quick.

Death wipes everything and takes all that you are.

Possessions, wealth, obsessions, hope, love, hate, dreams, will all wash away.

It's just another pointless future with a new generation with
no salvation.

A blackened stone bearing my name
identifies my existence to this persistent world.
But when death comes, no saving grace
Then lowered down, no grieving face
Only when my tomb hits the ground
Will death and I become..

..bound.
Track Name: Systematic Eradication
Erase the facts.
Establish myths.
Clustered cells.
Form new cysts.
End of days,
We press on.
Wretched virus,
We will spawn.

Door of oak,
Red white flame.
Silent men,
Prayers of blame.
Soul to curse,
Eyes will wander.
Heart will stop,
Minds will ponder.

(We fell on dark days)
Systematic wipeout of all life and mankind.
(We fell on dark days)
With humanity choking on it's own saliva.
(We fell on dark days)
Showcase the ripe venom from the apple of discord.
(We fell on dark days)
Where the tragedy of theory and practice fell.

Forming no words with my serpent tongue.
And with two hands, my heart was wrung.
I am one with the dirt. I will rot, decay.
Overcome with hurt, I'll just turn away.
Dealing with this...feels right on my own.
Dealing with this...feels right all alone.
I feel my bones will crush or crumble.
I will always slip or stumble.

Systematic Eradication.
Skipping beats in my heart.
Systematic Eradication.
Sinking weight from the start.
Systematic Eradication.
Skipping beats in my heart.
Systematic Eradication.
Sinking weight from the start.

Avoid the sick and bury the dead.
But feeling weak and feeling the dread.
I've tried to keep myself locked inside these cages.
But this virus is aggressive and so contagious.
My God, I know, I'll always fear the unknown.
My God, I know, I soon will reap what I've sown.
Oh please God why won't You save Me?
Oh please God why won't You save Me?
Track Name: Shell Shocked
Humanity, you've disappeared again.
Leaving no hope, living in fear.
Humanity, you've cast your eyes away.
Blinded by hate, blinded by fear.
So where does the spirit flee to, when life is too harsh to face?
Oh why does the water still flow, when the source has vanished without a trace?

Hating this life, degrading this life.
This mind, so rocked.
This body has been...
Feeding this life, breeding this life.
This mind, so rocked.
This body has been
shell shocked.
Track Name: Cavity
You belong on that wall of shame,
with confirmation that you're to blame.
With the huge scale of morality tipped by
pure human cruelty, two sided duality.
The judge will decide the rest for us.

Polarise me. Desensitise me.
Indict me. Criticise me.

We ignored all the signs.
Now let us witness Earths last cavity.
These burning times.
Now we rot with Earths last cavity.

The position that you now hold,
tears a hole in a heart so cold,
While the rest of society watches.
They will mock, they will define,
they will judge on what is a crime.
It's what they crave, it's what society wants from us.

We ignored all the signs.
Now let us witness Earths last cavity.
These burning times.
Now we rot with Earths last cavity.

The rot inside, is burning us alive
and now the hurt, resides, keeps building up inside.
with the rot inside is burning us alive,
and now the hurt, resides, keeps building up inside.

I remember back when I wanted to be anything.
Has life changed somehow or am I just different now?
I'm ordinary and average.
I'm no one you'd remember.
This world is not my stage.
Maybe facing truth comes with age.

More fear hits my chest.
With thoughts I can't compress.
This mind is trapped, confused.
Something I wouldn't care to lose.
Today feels so worthless.
Tomorrow serves no purpose.
Just dark days ahead.
Dark days ahead.

Just sick of these dark days.
Just sick.
Just sick of these dark days.
Just sick.
Track Name: The New Holocaust Hypocrisy
New day, new blood we shed, walk past the countless dead,
A strange earth to roam.
And now we have no home, nothing to call our own, on the periphery
of once claimed territory, in its entirety, a new reality,
We face, a disgrace, with treachery and misery.

We know that hope is lost,
Whose going to count the cost?
Futile escape.
People dying every day.
Leader with nothing left to say.
A future unknown.
Familiar land they claim
Forcing us to take new pain.
A foreign regime.
And now they cross the line,
We're running out of time.
Death now certain.

We have entered into the final domain.
We have executed this final routine.

Just remember that death is not the end.
Everything falls apart and does not mend.
All our lights fade away as we descend.
What lies ahead for us, we can't comprehend.

I am simply torn apart.
A hollow wrenching heart.
Endless torture.
No expressions on your face,
No warmth of your embrace.
Bleak and barren.
Wish you were here Today.
Wish things didn't end this way.
The gift of hindsight.
Could we ever say goodbye?
And depart towards blackened skies?
Drift inside a dream.

We have entered into the final domain.
We have executed this final routine.

Just remember that death is not the end.
Everything falls apart and does not mend.
All our lights fade away as we descend.
What lies ahead for us, we can't comprehend.

Shake the loose reins all you slaves of God.
A lie thought up to control all aspects of your lives.
No longer held back by any shame nor sin.
Throw away the crutches and feel the strength from within.

Shake the loose reins all you slaves of God.
A lie thought up to control all aspects of your lives.
No longer held back by any shame nor sin.
Throw away the crutches and feel the strength from within.

I feel this strength within.
But I sense this weight within you.
I feel this strength within.
But I sense this weight within you.
Track Name: Necronom IV
Begin to starve yourself and spread the disease.
Cancer cells divide divide until you believe, this is the end.

We see death on your face.
The sorrow in your mind.
The extinction of your race.
We have run out of time.
So feel every night terror on your lips, the bittersweet taste.
Excreting the waste from the bile in your mouth.
You lie, you cheat, you lose.
The answers to war crimes are lies heard a thousand times.

Begin to feed into this nightmare of dreams.
Perfect silence, shocking violence.
No one can breach into this nevermore.
Designed by hate, resigned our fate.
Forget the past, just sleep at last.
Closing the door, a life no more.
Is this the end?

We see death on your face.
The sorrow in your mind.
The extinction of your race.
We have run out of time.
So feel every night terror on your lips, the bittersweet taste.
Excreting the waste from the bile in your mouth.
You lie, you cheat, you lose.
The answers to war crimes are lies heard a thousand times.

We see death on your face.
The sorrow in your mind.
The extinction of your race.
We have run out of time.
So feel every night terror on your lips, the bittersweet taste.
Excreting the waste from the bile in your mouth.
You lie, you cheat, you lose.
The answers to war crimes are lies heard a thousand times.
Track Name: Zenith
The future predicted, it has been foretold.
We need something tangible, something to hold.
We now have an entity that nobody fears.
Fighting this nonsense for so many years.
Hating to see you be part of the schemes.
Oppressing my life path, impressing my dreams.
Reaching extremes, becoming the cannibal.
Rejecting reality, beyond just an animal.

Why can't you see?
This is what I always shall be.
Why can't you see?
This is what I always shall be.

In the beginning we witnessed the storm.
Collapsed-earth thy tender form.
Feast on the apple, another bite and we choke.
Our bodies free, thine shackles broke.
Cursed to damnation, to a life of downfall.
Attached to sin and tragedys call.
He wove her gown when Winter first fell.
Another decade to conceal his...
hell.

It's always the same, they all died in vain.
We're living in desperation and no hope.
There's no one to blame, is this all a game?
We're living in desperation and can't cope.

Another life resting on her Death throne.
With every word she speaks I turn to stone.
She came to him.
Wrapped in the gown and ripped apart his skin.
Her name was Sin.
Destroyer of hope and the slayer of all my kin.
And With these end of days.
This terrible story could be told a thousand ways.

Beating, stealing, cheating, fighting, screaming to stop those voices in my head.
Am I Sane Or Insane?
Drinking, shrinking, thinking, sinking, freaking about those voices in my head.
Am I Sane Or Insane?

Like a moth wrapped in flames.
Like a priest hiding shame.
Injecting fluids for that high.
Reaching zenith just to...

Die. Run away from all this.
Die. Run back to all this.

My lights are growing dim.
This must be my final hymn.
Trying to scream but no sound.
As my flesh hits the ground.
The shutdown of my machine.
Pulls the curtains on my last scene.
I nod farewell and wave goodbye.
Decay into the sky.....

Decay into the sky....
Decay into the sky...
Decay into the sky..
Decay into the sky.
