Track Name: Decay
Sloughed a skin impure
Vacuumed the sane

Monument of a poisonous essence
Afflicted by a thirst for fatality
Archetype of dissociation
Marooned of all light

Truth before the blind's eye
Never to be seen
Truth before the blind's eye
Never to be seen

Coincidences are not
Perfect is the chain
Ravenous Mechanic
Of an inevitable precision
Monstrous language
Absolute and unaltered
Inscribed in desolation
Proclaimed in death

Dictator of derision
Manipulator of reason
Catalyst of alienation
Architect of perdition

Below all structures lives the void
Invisible master of destruction

Sphere by sphere
Consumed a life deep inside
Left corroded the hands of the will
Inconsistent memories solely remain
Broken Reflections
Of an endless night
Track Name: Abyss
Suspended between worlds
A forlorn matrix of desert lands
Lost in the confines of nothingness

Abandon your mind
To this restless tomb
In an everlasting descent
towards decrepitude

Petrified cold reality
Beyond the reach of time
Eternal dusk of your existence

Dissolve your mind
In this restless tomb
Obsolescent is the flesh
Abstracted is the link
Track Name: Consumed
Strident Impulse
Shattering your senses
Reconnected in convulsions
Contorted out
Of a sombre coma

Exacerbating strike of a sterile realm
A putrified dawn in a lifeless abyss

Bitter lacerations
Frantic breathing
Frozen empty gaze
Engrossed in fear
Annihilation of hope
Grouds broad open
To a domain of decay
Pandered to the venom

Paralyzing chill through your spine
Illuminating horror injection
Ecstasic madness smiling at you

Engraved in your skull
The impossible truth
Yours to embrace
Track Name: Skinned
Severed from inertia
Concealment no more
Self-exhumed to transform
Pain into infernal fierceness
Behold the face of malice
Bear this wrecking doom

Madly flourished rot
Of the soul
Recoiled upon
Abhorred captives
Incisive gather
Of suffering

There are laws
None can contravene
Without paying the price
There are laws
None can contravene
Without paying the price
Pay the price
Pay the price

Precluded be your future
Expired by my hand
Your fate be my nurture
Skinned until the end

For the sick
Your perdition
My ecstasy

Merciless embodiment
Of plague and salvation
Or worst
None can escape
Without paying the price

Slave to malice
Fiendish essence
Unfurled unto you
Track Name: Delirium
Fragmented veil
Distorted oblivion
Grotesque paralysis
Exiled in lunacy

Corrosive mental impregnation
Paralyzed in agonizing isolation
Mutilating my hollow fate
In an ethereal tomb I lay down

Abrasive essence
Of delusions
Burns dark the wound
Of infused visions

Driven sharpened blades
My face lacerated
Impaling a thousand thorns
As blood sprays out of my eyes

Twisted by the gears
Of delirium
Blindfolded crazing

Chained by the veil
Into frenzy oblivion
Achromatic paralysis
Exiled in torture
Track Name: Pernicious
Into infernal dominion
Perpetual harrowing
As essence is drained into

Shackled by the unknown

Nameless fire
Stormed by the hands
Of this malevolent burden

Evanescent control
Of carnal deeds
Blindly animated
In a tool of war

Eyeless heads
Amputated of their mask
Emptied faces
Shrouded by a nether state

Sleepless tyrant
Supremely wicked

As a blade through the neck
Failure spawns failure
Dethroning the doomed
To reign once and for all

Contending exertion
Timeless struggle

Stillborn spirit
Track Name: Delusional
Disgusted by the stale image of appearances
Torn apart by the grind of this reality
Distorted sight takes away my sanity
Deprived of a chance to heal
As teeth are gnashing from convulsions

Repugnance for the frailty of mankind
Defiling this envelope made of flesh
Abusing the weak and corrupting their minds
Capitalizing on their pain

I reject it

How can they tolerate
This paralysing existence
Numbed by a soothing illusion
Turned into pawns in this machine

Inflict the negative on the oppressor
Feeding the need to hate with passion

Witness the unwinding of the beast
Eating this world
And leaving nothing
