Track Name: Chant Demigod
Escape the land of fools and kings.
Ignore the stage, a pantomime.
Slay the sheep, unleash the beast.
Make a move or get out of line.

Void and space now be my guide.
Mysteries of our reality.
Where life no longer greets the dawn.
Checked off as another tragedy.

(Do you) Do you believe?
(Can't) Can't you see?
(Broken) Broken inside.
(Trapped) Trapped inside.

Isolated, broken down, in chains.
Severed veins, drenched in liquid pain.
Into nothingness, straight into the black.
Once I let go, there's no turning back.

I feel a change, I'm something else.
I'm something new, I'm something free.
Inside I can feel the movement. Inside I can feel the change.

It solidifies then sets. Forms clots then death.
It purifies, we bleed, we suffer, we seed.
It solidifies then sets. Forms clots then death.
It purifies, we bleed, we suffer, we seed.

Why, why can't you see? Forgotten seed.
Broken inside. The fallen tree.
Trapped inside me. Do you believe?
Your hollow seed. The hollow tree.

Just ignorance remaining, they're hoping and waiting.
Their God is prevailing, with locked hands they are praying.
My body is failing, reality is fading.
My mind is pretending, my final thoughts are pending.

Can't wait to feel the avalanche feel the weight.
Buried under ice with no escape, no escape.
Can't wait to feel the avalanche feel the weight.
Trapped under ice with no escape, no escape.

So Father, here I stand, waiting for the clouds to descend.
I cannot stare at a guilty reflection my friend.
Mother, I can no longer lie and pretend.
I want to lift the burden of truth but you would just push me away in the end.

(Chant Demigod in vain) Just throw me away.
(Chant Demigod in vain) Just discard me.
(Chant Demigod in vain) Just throw me away.
(Chant Demigod in vain) Just discard me.
Track Name: Null And Void
Believe in nothing else but God.

I was seeded into failing roots, decaying fruit was born.
Growth was put into suspended animation.
Today shall bleed for all to see and fail to be.
Tomorrow's turned up dead.

I'm the pawn of this game, the crooked, the shame, I'm done.
Not the focus, the want, the wish, no one just void.
I'm the scapegoat, to blame, the martyr, the strange, I'm null.
The victim, the wretch, the target, all null and void.

This is a blinding drug that many people take.
In years to come we will read about the great mistake.
The ancient curse, a false creator.
But for now the infectious virus spreads.

The flood. The September storm it took its toll.
Piece. By piece, it ripped us apart limb from limb.
With harsh chilling winds and great echo chambers.
Greeting all the lice, the rats, the maggots, the locusts and the flies. The boils, tainted soil and rotten diseased meats.
Thunderstorms of hail and fire.

We must soon accept defeat.

Believe in nothing else but God.

Believe in nothing else but God.

It's God before everything else.

Believe.

I'm the pawn of this game, the crooked, the shame, I'm done.
Not the focus, the want, the wish, no one just void.
I'm the scapegoat, to blame, the martyr, the strange, I'm null.
The victim, the wretch, the target, all null and void.

One to feed you all the lies.
One to choke you with every lie.
Track Name: Subproject 54
Bodies warped mind timeless.
Our tongues were wrapped in silence.
Bugs and fleas rest on my skin.
With sanity leaking from within.

Injecting, infecting every man, woman and child.
Sinking, further, deeper, going nowhere.
Enraged, deranged. Madness set in stone.
Rejected, defective. Acid etching all bones.

Ultrasonic, wave magnetic.
Sending signals to my brain.
Ultrasonic, wave magnetic.
Am I, starting to go insane?

Microwave hearing. A different mind-set.
Fully charged pulses. Fluid-filled glasses.

Trapped!

Light reflects a knotted sorrow, storm clouds gather and plot to follow. Nothing makes sense or so it seems.
Nightmares, nightmares.

Grasping throat of the human race.
Patient gestures without a face.
On the poisoned orchard floors, undress, undress.

Worms, rats, vermin. Soul sick. Mind trapped.

Breathe...
Breathe...
Breathe...
Breathe...

Tied up against a switchblade table,
Rope bound, feeling weak unstable.
While I nodded, slowly drifting as I watched the needle gripping…

It's just a dream or so it seems inside my head.
We are cursed here forever more.

Under the name of subproject 54.

Under the name of subproject 54.

Under the name of subproject 54.
Track Name: No Escape
Trap door, set for the slaughter.
Smiles at the thoughts of a new world order.
They need distractions. Another freak show.
Pull the slaves towards the idiot box.
They play God. They play God with the elements of the malevolent and sonic endeavours.
The house of cards they protect with stack upon stack which is fueled by the low hanging panic attack.

The chaplain walks around the room, burdened by a faltering faith.
Is this a soul saved or damned?
Haunted by guilt’s possession.

I just cannot take it anymore.
Hands still shaking from the cross.
I just cannot take it anymore.
Heart is still aching from the loss.

Echo death, the scene is set.
Most bad seeds bloom from the downward pressure.
Loaded fantasy, a dual reality, inhabit a world of atmospheric traps. Damn thorn in my side, erupting like a distorted mushroom cloud. Formed to force your downfall.
I wish I could stand ten feet tall.

A plastic soldier walks around the room, burdened by the sounds of silence.
Is this a soul saved or damned? Greeted by deaths obsession.

I just cannot take it anymore.
Hands still shaking from the cross.
I just cannot take it anymore.
Heart is still aching from the loss.

Treacherous serpent. Poisoned by my venomous tongue.
Treacherous serpent. You truly were the seductive one.

I found her there, slaughtered by the altar of plagues and sin.
I saw you there, wrapped in the gown and shouting from the pulpit.

He closed her eyes, shutting out the sorrow from the pale blue skies. Then he tasted wine, opening up the lies growing on dreaded vines.

Peace is his theme but it's hard to see with blood on the screen. So sick of your games, putting out the fire while dancing in the flames.

You've made your mark, now follow your shadow into the mist and dark.
Can't change the past that screamed like yesterday and died at last.

Count all those years, living through the suffering with worry and fear. There's no escape, slave since the cradle and set for the grave.

So let me rot in hell on your twisted nails of faith.
Track Name: And So We Became Slaves Forever
A fascist system of surveillance and intrusion.
Deceptive headlines supports the corporate machine.
Global war on freedom infiltrating all our lives.
Erosion of liberty. Welcome back you Stasi spies.

We'll delete you and wipe all your files.
Deny that you ever existed.
Witness how we rule the day,
We dictate what you must do and say.

We're living in a dying world.
With ignorance no longer an option.
They want control of our future.
The rebel in you, our only hope.

Lethargic lifestyle, another branded barcode.
Clouded perceptions of mania.
Mechanised dreams of fear.
Minorities, outcasts, stabbed by the utilitarian blade.
To feed a new set of susceptible minds.

We're living in a dying world.
With ignorance no longer an option.
They want control of our future.
The death of you, our only hope.

The drones are scanning,
searching for the last of humanity, it must be me.
The ground beneath stirs, shakes and pulsates.
The Earth my Judas, just let me be.

Standing here in darkness waiting for you to come and set me free.
But forgotten words and moments are now
trapped inside this world of mine.

We live in a dead world.
Resistance no longer an option.
They have control of our future.
And So We Became Slaves Forever.

And So We Became Slaves Forever.

And So We Became Slaves Forever.
Track Name: End Of Days
Rejoice!
Rejoice as the signs of the end times arrive.
You are lost!
You are lost so pay heed to the warnings and calls for mercy.

Repent! Beg forgiveness. Reveal! The man of Sin.

Reject!
Reject the sin soaked in the mortal blood of generations.
Release!
Release the everlasting words from the book of revelations.

We are breathing. We remain silent.
We are screaming. Screaming the silent words of prayer.

Freedom!
The freedom you enjoy, is tainted by the rules of hypocrisy.
Corrupted!
You are corrupted by the satanic views of a damned society.

Repent! Beg forgiveness. Reveal! The man of Sin.

Destruction of mankind and the fall of our nations is near us,
God will show us his judgement, his creations.
(His failures)

I used to dream. I used to hope for better days.
Now the angels sing. In flames we bring, Gods judgement day.

The crooked cross, the jagged thorns, all visions in the sky. These primordial times, backwards we climb down the mountain.

Don't want your version of heaven. Don't want your visions of peace. The clouds of death are descending. Here comes the rain.

Don't want your version of heaven. Don't want your visions of peace. The clouds of death are descending. Here comes the rain.

Repent! Beg forgiveness. Reveal! The man of Sin.

I want your end of days.

Bring me your end of days.

I used to dream. I used to hope for better days.
I used to dream. I used to hope for better days.
Track Name: The Great Catholic Collapse
Deep-rooted lies that keep on spreading, entwines its prey and injects its venom.
It has poisoned your mind.
Suppress those thoughts and shut down science.
Start new wars, end new life.
The old fiction of mankind.

Ignoring all the myths, sick of all this shit, it's nothing more than a hate filled cult.
We must reject all these Gods.
For as long as it lives, more people will give, their life for the honour, for their faith.
In the name of a fake messiah.

(The flock congregation) Hand in hand we walked together.
(The great catholic collapse) Now you depart this world forever.
(The great big white light) No hope just darkness at the river bend. (The great big white lie) Time to meet the end my dear old friend.

Void filling space with the vacuum of time, the fear of Judgement will keep you in line. Pull in the weak. No real embrace, freedom can't fly tied down by the tree of Gods design. False safety you seek.

(The flock congregation) Hand in hand we walked together.
(The great catholic collapse) Now you depart this world forever.
(The great big white light) No hope just darkness at the river bend. (The great big white lie) Time to greet the end my dear old friend.

(The flock congregation) Hand in hand we walked together.
(The great catholic collapse) Now you depart this world forever.
(The great big white light) No hope just darkness at the river bend. (The great big white lie) Time to meet the end my dear old friend.

At last, we've reached the turning point.
Finally it's time to witness your downfall.
At last, we've reached the turning point.
Finally it's time to witness the end.
Track Name: I See Humans But No Humanity
Destroyer of the cosmos
Eradicate sun and stars.
Oracle, apocalypse, commandment, law.

Mind and matter dissolving
Sacrifice our own existence.
Abstract theory, science flawed.

Say grace for this brave new world
Through gritted teeth.
Take stock of this damaged landscape
Through blackened smoke.

It has to be this way.
A chance to die in a complete state of euphoria.

Doom-filled weeping eyes.
Torn flesh and poisoned wine.
Bleak shadows sever the skies.
Rewards await the divine.

They bloom their dogma theories
on thorns that stab at me.
Blackmail, sycophant, rotten disease.

Shattered are the worthless icons
as emotions stir your words.
Heretic, apostate, rejecting God.

They love the smell of sulfur
They enjoy the stench of skin.
False broadcast, victim, sin.

Fueled by their fear and hatred
Seeking Heaven's nearest shore.
Martyr, scapegoat, mortal coil.

Nocturnal shade.
Blasting winds of darkness conquer me.
Our black hearts collide.
Flesh must cross death for purity.
Hail blackened storm.
We sail the dreaded sea of doom.
Earthquake embrace.
The bed of death, the final tomb.

(The Tyrant)
(The Tyrant)
The Titan who hunts and feds on devastation.

(The Tyrant)
(The Tyrant)
The craven who burns and bleeds entire nations.

I see no humanity.

I see no humanity.

Nocturnal shade.
Blasting winds of darkness conquer me.
Our black hearts collide.
Flesh must cross death for purity.
Hail blackened storm.
We sail the dreaded sea of doom.
Earthquake embrace.
The bed of death, the final tomb.
Track Name: Chaos Reigns
She wakes up in solitude with deaths serenity.
A soliloquy of emptiness.
As time drifts back to infinity.
A bittersweet hymn without reply. I turned away.

(Until the end) Let Chaos In and let Chaos Reign.
(Until the end) Some things will never ever change.
(Until the end) Things will always stay the same.
(Until the end) Let Chaos In and let Chaos Reign.

She remembers the weight of a cloudless sky.
Her bones longed to feel beneath her.
Fatal wounds returned her to the dust.
The bitter wind wrapped her within its tomb. I turned away.

(Until the end) Let Chaos In and let Chaos Reign.
(Until the end) Some things will never ever change.
(Until the end) Things will always stay the same.
(Until the end) Let Chaos In and let Chaos Reign.

Her lips are pale, the port is near.
She has no pulse, the bells I hear.
Her lips are pale, the port is near.
She has no pulse, the bells I hear.

Her lips are pale, the port is near.
She has no pulse, the bells I hear.

Her lips are pale, the port is near.
She has no pulse, the bells I hear.

I turned away and left this place.
Nothing more was said.
Stay hidden and behind this mask.
Alone inside my head.

As the sunlight weakens and grows cold.
As the moonlight brightens and grows old.
I'm still here tugging at my bones, slipping off this mask.
In my quiet garden of stones.
My quiet garden of stones.

Hope screams in silence. Darkness breeding, feeding inside of me.
Hope screams in silence. Darkness breeding, feeding inside of me.
Hope screams in silence. Darkness breeding, feeding inside of me.
Hope screams in silence. Darkness breeding, feeding inside of...
Track Name: Wretched Flesh, I Embrace
Another night without no sleep.
Into my shell peace hides so deep.
So blacken my world and my Sun.
There is nowhere to run -
So cast that first stone and then you’re done.

Rupture my heart and let it swell.
Leave with emptiness in this hell.
Closer to my end with every breath.
With wretched flesh, I embrace.

My fragile heart is barely beating.
My lungs compressed by all this breathing.
I hope this time it comes for me.
I hope this time it sets me free.

Rupture my heart and let it swell.
Leave with emptiness in this hell.
Closer to my end with every breath.
With wretched flesh, I embrace.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

I suppose we all thought that, one way or another. "

Rupture my heart and let it swell.
Leave with emptiness in this hell.
Closer to my end with every breath.
With wretched flesh, I embrace.

Shatter my heart with your wretched flesh.

Shatter my heart with your wretched flesh.
Track Name: Hail The Tragedies Of Man
The potency of Marshall Applewhite.
The poisoning of Socrates.
The last breath of Malcolm X.
The tragedy of Jackie’s Kennedy.

And with bleak thoughts I despair. There is no hope left in this world. Society corrupts the air, breathe in those toxins and choke.

And with bleak thoughts I despair. Is history destined to repeat? Extremity breeds injustice. Injustice seeds the extreme.

I've seen the future. I've seen the futures failures.

Tell me how we all rise above this.
Tell me how we all get up and push through this.
Society will never rise above this.
Society will never get up and push through this.

Human Instinct. The one true disease.
Human nature. The one true disease.

Cover up my eyes. Fill up my lungs.
Blacken my veins. Sever my heart.
Drown out those thoughts. Ignore all those fears.
Drain out my blood. Wipe away the tears.

The failures in life you see no God. Just tragedies of man you see.
The failures in life you see no God. Just tragedies of man you see.

The horrors in life you see no God. Just failures of man you see.
The sadness in life you see no God. Just failures of man you see.

Please remove yourself from my dreams.
Please remove yourself from my dreams.

Just need a long term fix, to spare my sanity.
Just need to sleep forever to escape from this reality.
Feeling that dread and despair, held up against my lungs.
Breathing in oh god, what have I've become?

I have to come to terms with all the things that I've done.
Looking back at the past where there is nowhere left to run.
Is this the end my friend? Never even say our last goodbyes?
Never wave farewell, just depart towards autumn skies.

I stand alone. Destitute. Devoid of all hope. Of everything.
Now, forever, we walk away, a distance apart, side by side,
Left abandoned, wandering and suffering, in silence.
