Track Name: Malevolence
Transcendent fear in the hearts of the masses
The horror of tomorrow overcomes
The soul, the engine of the carcass
Rotten by doomsayer's words come undone

Damnation falls on holy, righteous winds
They beckon at it's sight
Judgement granted for each and everyone of us
No use to shout a plight

R :
What they believe is of no concern to me, but I can't live with spiritual hostility
Maintain a state of undesired memory, where being yourself is seen as blasphemy

Divinity hidden deep beneath the skin
Imagined by fragile minds
Sacredness, a charade and nothing more
Hidden deep beneath the guts and gore

Malevolence disguised as care
Used by fools on those who're near
Idling grants no solution
Rise up for revolution

R :
What they believe is of no concern to me, but I can't live with spiritual hostility
Maintain a state of undesired memory, where being yourself is seen as blasphemy
Track Name: NFP
Persistence of darkening thoughts has to cease
Corrupted pattern in the fabric of mind
Feeding the masses with nothing but lies
The zealous have made a dystopian paradise

We are slaves to those who oppress us, those who want to see us crawl
We've grown complacent in our graves, no matter what we know that we'll fall
And so we let this plague pass by us, thinking we have nothing to gain
This "Empire" got it's claws gripped really tight, on what gave us life and sight

The fight for survival keeps us awake, not knowing how much really is at stake
Each of us - outlaws, in our own right, we look at our lives and only see is "light"
To rise up and rebel is being frowned upon, but in the end we'll escape from the dome
One chance to wake up and look at the whole, decree that the chains holding us must go

For the lives that they took, no regret, the almighty machine rules us all in the end
The brotherhood of man failed us, can't repent, the end war comes and no lives
Will be spared
Track Name: Downfall of a God
(Lead astray) Lead astray, a lingering debt
The hardships of life, the blood and the sweat
A sinner's distress, symbiotic pest
Road to destruction - Life's unfair test
Downfall of Gods, unwavering hate
Resurrection of self - too little, too late
Failure to succeed, impeding doom
Abyssal destruction, damnation in bloom

A treacherous fandango that we call time
How passive the eons have gone by
This dormant and latent prodigal son
Became abhorrent to himself
No desire or purpose to keep him afloat
A cesspool of madness dampened his douse
No matter how long he would carry on
He'd never feel that he truly belonged

Lead astray, a lingering debt
The hardships of life, the blood and the sweat
A sinner's distress, symbiotic pest
Road to destruction - Life's unfair test

Corroded by the passing of time
A process of trial and error
No faith in one's power to ascend
Allowed domination of horror
For the fools who can't see the light
There is no hope to spare
On deaf ears shall fall their plight
The fallen gaze upon them with an empty stare

Lead astray, a lingering debt
The hardships of life, the blood and the sweat
A sinner's distress, symbiotic pest
Road to destruction - Life's unfair test


Downfall of Gods, unwavering hate
Resurrection of self - too little, too late
Failure to succeed, impeding doom
Abyssal destruction, damnation in bloom
Track Name: Canvas
All of your life you've been unable to find
A meaning or purpose to being alive
Maybe you should succumb to hivemind
In the idea of comfort you dive

Life in this universe is valuable
Selfish of you to think of death
As a means of becoming knowledgeable
But the wisdom you seek governs only in death

You build up your walls, they'll tear them again
To see you try and struggle in vain
Your fortress is conquered, your flag is aflame
Your head's on the block
You look in disdain, at what was your life
A feeling of shame
Pulses through what once were your veins
This mortal carcass cannot withstand
The tests and trials of life's final plan
All in the end will bow their heads
And beg to be spared by those who once cared
They'll look at the sky and cry with resign
To whoever is up there for one final try

At whatever cost we keep pushing through
Clinging to the chance of seeing this through
The slaughter of self, the damnable fake
The pyre on which you will be laid
The feeling of comfort and false self-proclaim
Are proven to you to be all in vain

All you stood for succumbs to the weight of life
All you achieved buried in the sands of time
They are all part of the hive
The endless consumption of human life

Finally we must accept that we're all prone to change
Nothing we build will ever remain untouched and the same
Innocence - the illusion and dream of the blind
In the end, life is just a wargame of the mind
