Track Name: Cognitive Dissonance
Awake into a nameless void
Endless past and endless future
All is still; all is calm
Righteous hand condemning all
Familiar quiet of eons dying
All have suffered; none have gained
Eternity denied
Damnation with a smile
On the path that leads to ruin
No way out; no escape
This flood will come; consuming all
Candle in the Dark fades away
The Demon Caged in futile logic
12:10 AM - Prophecy Fails
Eternity denied
Damnation with a smile
I remain
Eternal and unknown
You blindly seek
Only to burn alone
Scars on his hands and feet
A reminder of enormous failure
A sacrifice that saved no one
Denied by a billion souls
Witless victim of faith collapsing
All hail the son of man
Eternity denied
Damnation with a smile
I remain
Eternal and unknown
You blindly seek
Only to burn alone
I deny
The falsehood you insist
I will fade
Yet you will persist
Track Name: Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny
Burn her away
The light that has become
Tear her away
To destroy all memory
Translucent skin
Dark orbs becoming eyes
Voiceless and helpless nothing
Born into a plastic bag
First born rising
Second falling in vain
Testify 6000 years below the ground
Enslaved; this golden ring pulling down
A worthless thing
Naught but dogs & sheep & pigs
What it's become
Is not what it once was
There's nothing there
Not until the first breath
Justification makes
Genius of us all
First born rising
Second falling in vain
Testify 6000 years below the ground
Enslaved; this golden ring pulling down
The touch of blame
Has eluded us for years and years
Forgotten law casting light on falling faces
Vengence unseen scars inflicted
Cursed vagrant undying
Wandering all the earth
Science is Cain
Sacrifice self-serving
Unfeeling analyzer
Categorizing everything
Track Name: A Vision
One word
One sign was all
I ever really needed from you
One look
One touch was all
I ever really wanted from you
I cannot see my reflection in your eyes
I cannot see a truth that I despise
One word
One sign was all
I ever really needed
Track Name: Severing
Christ my heart is freezing
Devoid of colour and drained of all it's blood
This dissection is revealing me
My arms pinned down crucifying you
Drugs injected and clouds fill my mind
My lungs collapse and I'm ripped from my skin
I stare inside; it's sickening
My God how long has been like this?
This process is tearing me apart
Formaldehyde falls from blind eyes
The pain is nothing; I've been through this before
My awakening will cost you your dreams
You always were the one I never loved
I might has well have severed off my hands
My analysis has disproved your love
But your love denies me too
Track Name: Baptism
Footprints in the sand - All will wash away
Promise in the rain - Colours start to fade
The sparrows of the skies - Fall to the ground
We're walking through the shadows - And you're not around
There's always this space between us
Somewhere I cannot go
There's always this space between us
I'm still outside the wall
Lilies of the fields - Naked and ashamed
Teachers without a temple - Have forgotten your name
There's always this space between us
Somewhere I cannot go
There's always this space between us
A peace I'll never know
I can't be pure
I cannot be changed
By fire or by water
But in the end
All will strip away
And it won't really matter
The mustard seeds have fallen - on barren ground
We all serve two masters - In slavery we are bound
There's always this space between us
Somewhere I cannot go
There's always this space between us
And you cannot return
I won't be pure
I will not be changed
By fire or by water
But in the end
All will strip away
And it won't really matter
Track Name: Embrace
A crooked line imperfect circle
Endlessly reaching
Unseeing eyes a strange shape
Grasping without feeling
The space between cold and yellowed
Stain on blank canvas
Thin and black smeared and severed
The two shall not be one
This tragic moment
Underneath twin black suns
Forever separate
And forever wanting more
Desperate love without hope
Destroyed by a secret
Unspoken pain plainly seen
Unheeded by the headless
This tragic moment
Underneath twin black suns
Forever separate
And forever wanting more
All I wanted was you
All I needed was you
Track Name: Beckoning
Prophet has faded into antiquity
the undying man's words of warning
Have died now within us
osiris beckoning turns us from our broken master
Buries us alive in false reality
It always seemed these corridors
Led to something deeper
But these bells and spheres and elders
Fell to iconoclasts
Streets paved in gold
Nothing but back alleys and dead ends
Stillborn messiahs under the trash
You promised that you would return - I'm still waiting
You promised you'd numb my pain - I'm still wanting
I cannot rebel
For nothing exists
Track Name: Four Fucking Years
Prophet has faded into antiquity
the undying man's words of warning
Have died now within us
osiris beckoning turns us from our broken master
Buries us alive in false reality
It always seemed these corridors
Led to something deeper
But these bells and spheres and elders
Fell to iconoclasts
Streets paved in gold
Nothing but back alleys and dead ends
Stillborn messiahs under the trash
You promised that you would return - I'm still waiting
You promised you'd numb my pain - I'm still wanting
I cannot rebel
For nothing exists
Track Name: Confession
In pain it rose up
Between the sun and earth
To bring forth a child of lies
To rule over perception
The people crowned their delusion
Starving bring grain to burn
Worshiping the idolatry
Born of their imagination
Please be silent
I tried so hard
To appease my idols
Their silence deafening
Ashes of hearts burnt in hand
Brought to her as sacrifice
She turns her head from this worthless gift
And smears their wanting faces
When I look into your eyes
It draws me back in circles
When my dreams revealed are dreams reviled
I've lost my faith in miracles
The beast turns a wicked smile
The diamond in her crown
Is nothing but glass
The most precious lie of all
Track Name: Reborn
With every step it gets closer
A struggle against your will
Is this what you require?
Something pure and precious to kill?
These writings will forsake you
They're thorns that scratch the skin
Scars and fears circling
A halo of blood and piss
I wasn't ready for all of this
I didn't know this was our final kiss
I'm dying to be your salvation
Your sacrificial lamb
But I can't reach out to you
For this nail that's in my hand
Born to be your redemption
A lion on your throne
You don't remember the prophecies
Doomed to be alive and alone
I wasn't ready for all of this
I can still taste your bitter kiss
I wasn't ready for all of this
Give me one more betrayal's kiss
