Track Name: The Scent of Sulphur
THE SCENT OF SULPHUR

Lost love burning through my head.
Itching to find a way out
Like you won't believe.
Dont try to catch me with your vacant gaze
Cause I know,
You're fucking dead to me.

Falling, bereaved of foresight.
Dead to me.
With a tombstone inscribed
You're fucking dead to me.

Souless
Vessel with no guide.
Bereft of all intelligence.
As it grew from inside,
Narcissism beguiled.
Left you unreconciled.

Life,
secluded self subversions
lead the wicked to unfold
A nonexistent divide
your thoughts opposed.

Biding your time as you slowly wither away
Your words now mean nothing.
You call out for your reckoning.

Behold,
Diminishing,
The mighty have fallen.
This sickening parasite.

Breakdown the walls of trepidation.
Where desolation resides.
Your foul lies,
Intoxicating everything
you're world is filth.
You're becoming all the things you despised.

Life
Subsided in Your burden
A toxicity so bleak
And as it strengthens you reek
of the scent of sulphur.

You're dancing on fire
as you're contemplating
falling off the precipice.

Lost love burning through my head.
Itching to find a way out
Like you won't believe.
Don't try to catch me with your vacant gaze,
Cause I know
You're fucking dead to me.

Souless
Vessel with no guide.
Bereft of all intelligence.
As it grew from inside,
Narcissism beguiled.
Left you unreconciled.

Souless vessel, narcissism beguiled

Lost love burning through my head.
Dont try to catch me with your vacant gaze
Cause I know.
You're fucking dead to me.

Lost love burning through my head.
Itching to find a way out
Like you won't believe.
Dont try to cath me with your vacant gaze
Cause I know.
You're fucking dead to me.
Track Name: In the Shadow of Paradise
IN THE SHADOW OF PARADISE

Embrace
The
Insane
For theres nowhere to hide
A beast grows
Devoid of form and light


We ride tonight
Racing through this life
Never questioning this masquerade
Drowning not swimming
In this lake of tragedy
Anticipating our next move

No one is safe,
For our fate has been unbound.
Doomsday from the depths released.
The call of the ancient one!

We've been disbanded and dissolved
Torn apart
Thrown into limbo
A testimony hiding everything you say
While the lost,
Wait their atonement.

When the stars align
Entwine
And fail to harmonise
Shatter reality thats been told through time

I retreat until I fall.
Off the earth. (We say goodbye)
And the sun has never shone
In the shadow of paradise
I walk alone.

And when this moment imprints in time
Through perversions ecstacy
So besotted and subtly scorn that
I still long for
Every single word

When the stars align
Entwine
And fail to harmonise
Shatter reality
That takes us to the grave

Weve been Disbanded, decimated and dissolved
Torn apart
Thrown into limbo.
A testimony hiding everything you say
While the lost...

I retreat until I fall
Off the earth (We say goodbye)
Where the sun has never shone
In the shadow of paradise
I walk alone.

What is real?
I know life
But im uncertain
That its just this
Oblivion.

Open your mind
Our heads in the sky
And you
Will be there till I die

Daylight reveals
The truth of the path tomorrow

Dont let the darkness encompasses the
Light
Let,
Darkness encompass the
Light
Daylight reveals the truth of the path tomorrow

Now im frozen in this moment
Im with you
Always saying goodbye
Track Name: Manifestation
MANIFESTATION

Through the dawning of ancient worlds
Admist the sea in which nothing grows,
Hides a beast within the shadows.

It returns
once again I sense its grip within my soul.
Entity unknown
Now embedded in my sanity
Luring me in different forms.

Manifestation.
Lays inside my head that followed me out of the unknown

Feel it burn
through the vapid tranquility that rules this world.

And in our darkest moments.
Seething hate
Such contempt for reality.
This
Is
The place
The fire ignites.

It never gives up
It will not retreat.
Disguising the truth
That grows underneath.

It lays dormant until you succumb.
For now your demise has only begun
This is the demise that you can't outrun.

Rise,
From the Depths with
Voices that speak Belial.

Cold and relentless.
Oppression leads to your exile.
thrown
to the abyss

your concious decays
through the sands of time.
This is their design.

Manifestation

Feel it burn
Through the vapid tranquility
That rules this world.

As you enter the realm
Of Monsters and myths

Cries
Break the silence.
Martyrs defiled.
Feedimg misery's bliss.

Cries
Break the silence
Martyrs defiled
Feeding off of Misery's bliss.

your concious decays
through the sands of time.
This is their design.

Seething hate
Such contempt for reality.
THIS
IS
THE PLACE
THE FIRE IGNITES

It never gives up
It will not retreat.
Disguising the truth
That grows underneath.
It lays dormant until you succumb
For now your demise has only begun.
Track Name: The Fall of Carnality
THE FALL OF CARNALITY

Take flight tonight
and let your wings bestow
a sense of freedom
lost in the undertow

Wretched affliction, terra firma despairs
The blight of mankind, far beyond repair.

An evil trickles through the void
Fuelled off misery and no
It wont let go
faking hope with a prayer
the fall of carnality.

The Hellesphere is in full bloom.
Those who dream of the carnage have forseen
the beginning of the world undone.

Ancient mother nature's tomb.
And she beckoned.
The end of the world has come

See and speak and hear poison.
Repulsive deitys have come
and wont let go
Of their prophecies.
The fall of carnality

Lost lives surround this mortal shell
and you can't save them
FROM THIS HELL

Against the tide
theres no turning back
embrace our destiny
forever entrapped

Take in our final sunrise.
Forebearing mother sky.
Knowing her pain will cease
When we rest in peace.

I want to know
If we're ever going home
And I want to feel.
To embrace this life,
To learn from the unknown.

Fall
Decrowned
Destroyed

Behold forsaken morality.
Dethroned
For all that will glisten in gold.

Unworthy life, alive
who take an eye for an eye while shattering dreams beyond shadows.

What will become
Hate
Deceit
There's no Return
Pain
Regret and diminish are the faithful, scorn.

Living defined
By a wondering mind
Finding sanctity through the ripples in the blood flow

Lost lives surround this mortal shell
and you can't save them

From this hell

Against the tide
Theres no turning back
Embrace our destiny
forever entrapped

Take in our final sunrise.
Forebearing mother sky
Knowing her pain will cease
When we rest in peace.

I want to know
If we're ever going home
And I want to feel.
To embrace this life,
To learn from the unknown.
Track Name: Thanatos
THANOTAS

Seething breach.
supernatural cataclysm, Thanotas
bourgeoning expansion
laying waste to our realm.

wielding scepters of old.
Sent from the netherworld.

Surrender to power you cannot ward off
with your novelty cross.

Those who appose

eternal torment.

Concede.
And your Gods

ENDYMION
Torn apart
Love and chaos surrounds me.
sharing moments of bliss
falling off the edge of the world
When you are around me.

Time flies, yet cease too exist
finding peace within a frenzied mind that that won't decist.
When I fall, into the void,
this sentiment grounds me.

A futile attempt
soon you'll plead or implore.
I hear it call.

corrupt, depraved defamation
I witness in dreams, shall be nevermore.

misguided demoralisation.
looming over me, no more.

I close my eyes
seeing visions of nightmares appear
wondering if it's a lost memory?
they say, that God's always near
but the Devil's right here.

The essence of death, is what keeps the living strong.

And in the end, I heed the omen.
and in the end, We are the chosen.

Track Name: Chronicles
CHRONICLES

I congregate through sounds
that seep into my soul.
As I contemplate on a life once less profound.

It tears into my life,
A meaning to behold
(Each day it grows)
As I contemplate what is life?

Forsaking everything
you once held tight
finding solace in a heart deprived
of meaning.

left scarred licking a bitter wound,
unhealing
that sealed your doom.

a voice that sings demise.
beauty that makes my eyes bleed.
With a welcoming smile.

Severe, unstoppable revered in chronicles,
I beget you.

And when we glanced
towards the stars now benign
And the darkness reflects through your eyes.
This cosmic essence,
mystified
unveiling false divine.

My eyes dialate
As the venom takes its hold.
My mind melts away
Replacing time with eternity.

Outside watching yourself decay (Decay)
Suddenly I Lose control
(It grows and grows)
As I contemplate what is life

forsake everything
you once held so tight
finding solace in the flames, burning brighter every time
You've sealed your doom

a voice that sings demise.
beauty that makes my eyes bleed.
With a welcoming smile.

Severe, unstoppable revered in chronicles
I beget you.

And when we glance
towards the stars now benign
And the darkness reflects through your eyes.
This cosmic essence,
mystified
unveiling false divine.

And when we gaze
Towards the sunlights demise
I see the hatred reflect in your eyes
Cosmic essence
Unveiling false divine

Within our minds
We can Escape

These darkened times.

Taking back The decimation we bestowed
Souless.
An attack on humanities freedom has begun.
Enslavement in full motion.

Souless
Taking back the decimation we bestowed.
My one regret
Is the fact of the matter never said goodbye sooner.
Track Name: Whispers
WHISPERS

As the day gives birth to the night.
And the darkness, encompasses the light.
words call out to me.
A voice that comes to me in my dreams

I perceive, that your polarity
Craves simplicity, deceives (deceives)
Ascertained Bliss, just to leave this behind,
But it feels I'm wasting my time when I dont have you on my mind!

Bare the crown
Of serpents and sorrow.
And the further you fall,
Indoctrinating demise
Where I'm, consumed

So free me of your burden
Untie me from your roots
Break through, find a light in
The darkest sea, the
Asylum of the infinite.
Untie me from your roots

A whispering breeze in the night

No regrets
When your memory's deceased
All this sickening deceit, I now watch it end.
It brings hope for tomorrow
Even though it feels like that I'm
Loosing my friend

Bare the crown
Of serpents and sorrow.
And the further you fall,
Indoctrinating demise
Where I'm, consumed

So free me of your burden
Untie me from your roots
Break through, find a light in
The darkest sea, the
Asylum of the infinite.
Untie me from your roots.

Is this life?
Is this
Is this life?
Track Name: Abyssal
ABYSSAL

I lay awake as the night engross me,
My body's at rest and my mind's awoken.
a purple haze in my eye encloses,
a welcoming sign as I enter this realm, obscure.
who are these people I feel around me?
Detail in blackness, my eyes are closed.
Do they notice I hear their voices?
I start to feel overexposed.

returning frequently
To see, To float in nothingness.
lurking in the void,
pineal seductivness.

Abyssal Architecture
infests my world.
Deathly still,
But the breeze within the trees is supernatural.

Territorial
are those who dwell
who fight for dominion

The wraiths
you let slip through
have chosen you.

Miasma ensues.

Condemned

A life inside is forming
confounded are the ones
who don't heed the warnings.


I've become
crazed.
Frenzied.

Been falling for so long
you cant stop me.

Catch a glimpse of the final curtain,
That falls too soon.
lost in this hell, a domain unspoken.
They followed you.
untethered fear, another day is dawning
another day you loose
(Fading)
as you fear for a burning eternity
They follow you.

exploring frequencies,
deceased,
between the crushing depths.
I find I'm already here
questioning existence.

revocation unforseeable, an infernal adversary
so renowned
diabolical, detestable, untraceable
you're lost and you wont be found.

Territorial
are those who dwell
who fight for dominion

The wraiths
you let through
have have all but conquered
You

Miasma ensues.

Condemned

A life inside
is forming
confounded are the ones
who don't heed the warnings.


My grip is slipping
but I wont let it go
Thoughts and feelings in my head
cause a strange echo
i've become
crazed.
Frenzied.
Been falling for so long
you cant stop me.

Catch a glimpse
of the final curtain,
That falls too soon.
lost in this hell
a domain unspoken.
They followed you.

another day is dawning
another day you loose

As you fear for a burning eternity,
They follow you.
