Track Name: Élleipsis
Reality imploding
Falling towards an end
Light has slowed and broken down
Void is all that’s left

Happiness seems strangely dressed
His healing robes beyond all grasp
Track Name: The Left Hand of the Righteous
Cursed
Banished unto the undefined space
Penitent thief, impenitent thief
Shame
Buried beneath a flood of wine and blood
Infinite grace, endless death
Lost
Strayed from the path of the Sephirot
Peeling away, descend into shell, dried to a husk
Child
Mirror reflects unrecognizable face
Distorted light, piercing the darkness, nothing revealed

What is found can fall astray
What is built can be destroyed

Creed
The low and the innocent die by the sword
Wisdom of kings, judgement of fools
Slave
Bound to serve two undignified masters
Ignorant god, omniscient man

None more wise
You nor I

Doubt
Culling the cubes from a festering wound
Wisdom is all, knowledge is naught, truth is reviled
Flesh
Built of the stars forever beyond
Deny thy life, deny thy grave, deny thy cause

What is seen can be concealed
What is scrawled can be erased

None more wise
You nor I

Today you’ll be with me in paradise
Today you’ll see glory and genocide

Shadow of doubt
Refuse
Burden of proof
Resist
Question of pain
Reject
Logic denied
Renounce

None more wise
You nor I
Track Name: Object UB313
Prove to me a word
Explanations deafening
I fail to comprehend

Chaos undefined
Your mystery impossible
Yet something lingers on

Painting our faces a cursed shade of Grey
Plastic lives becoming plastic deaths
100 years are wasted by the shore
Charon’s obol weighs heavy on our tongues

Speak ye of time / Relative
Speak ye of light / Distortion
Speak ye in fact / Uncertain
Speak ye in prose / Divergent

Speak to me a word
Beyond the gilded page
And I’ll believe it all

Gnosis supersedes
Your mystery irrelevant
Yet something lingers on

Speak ye of law / Punishment
Speak ye of pain / Ignorance
Speak ye in truth / Deception
Speak ye in tongues / Confusion

Condescend to me
You arrogant master
Chaos spews from a million mouths
Babel crashes down
Come descend to me
You oblivious bastard
Whispered love through invisible teeth
Bible crashes down

Installed under incorruptable crowns
Blood stained martyrs devolve to worthless white
Clawing upwards with our doom upon our backs
Eris rises and plummets to the earth

Droning on
I grow tired of this argument
I’ve been waiting
For truth that’s immutable
False resolve
I got ahead of myself
I was seeing things
That made me think this could be real

Will not be bound
Will not be caged
Will not be found
Will not be named
Track Name: Upon the Face of the Waters
A dark globe perverts the outmost wastes
A gloom profound beckons to the deep
We shrink back and cower in fear
Murmur unheeded curses towards the skies
We crawl away from our first scattering
While the stars collapse and the planets fall like judgements

What revealed all? This ocean beyond light?
Who knows this secret? This creator of worlds?
Perhaps He knows; perhaps He knows not
Uncreated, this spark from the Earth

A dark globe distorts the inmost depths
Strangling back the will to destroy the gods
We make of ourselves a sacrifice
Kneeling, smash our skulls upon the stones
We claim dominion over infinitesemal
While the cosmos waits, infinite and indifferent

What concealed all? This pinhole burned sky?
Who knows this secret? This devourer of worlds?
Perhaps He knows; perhaps He knows not
Uncreated, this spark from the Earth
Track Name: The Denialist
Stepped into the void left my ship behind
Imperfect mimic of unborn men
Reason commands to join you on the surface
Sometimes I think I’d rather drown

You
You walk amongst the waves
A specter beyond reproach
Why
Oh ye of little fact
Abandon years of research

Dragged into the deep by the undertow
Foundering in a nameless fear
Dark saltwater fills my lungs
Transubstantiates into the blood

Down
In primordial depths
Faint memory amniotic
Light
Filters through the womb
Corroded christ arms outstretched

Analyze
Deicide
God inside
Thrice denied

Made to stand trial circle of dust and hate
Fatal meeting of rock and bone
You feign not to show more than passing interest
Draw equations into the dirt

Scribe
Make your absurd glyphs
Your letters of obscure men
Law
Confusing admonition
Go now and learn no more

Empty space remains upon the right hand
You come not to bring peace but a pen
Message in the sand undeciphered still
I’ve been waiting since 1543

Where
Is the accuser
A pharisee to crush my skull
I
I cast the first stone
Victim of my own disgrace

Analyze
Deicide
God inside
Thrice denied

Deny
I don’t know the man
Despise
I don’t know myself
Track Name: Edward Mordake
The hand of fate is a phantom limb
That wields a will of obsidian
Crack the ribs remove the shard
Isaac bound to vivisect

Hands o’er hearts fealty sworn
A vein attempt to mask the wound
Scar reminds identity
Spilled on an altar of sand

Organs sealed in canopic jars
Thou livest on the bread of Ra
Remove the self and take thy place
Ascend to join the nameless ones

Stare into the savior’s face
Suffer ye the same fate
Stare into the traitor’s face
Suffer ye the same fate

Plastic smiles locked in opposition
Kicking hooves and rending tusks
United only in their lust
Trample all beneath blackened feet

Drunken orgies held in secret rooms
Disgusting writhing of ashen skin
Jesus swills the blood of swine
Vomits yet another platitude

Plans devised to procreate
To raze a child in Babylon
A bastard son that none will claim
Judas bred to crucify

Stare into the savior’s face
Suffer ye the same fate
Stare into the traitor’s face
Suffer ye the same fate

We’ve been so wrong
For so long
We cannot fall
Nor carry on

As a dream - as a devil
This face of love is merely a mask
It never sleeps - it speaks forever
The sins of the past are unforgiven

Shape me
Smudge me
Dream me
Erase me
Heal me
Scar me
Praise me
Delete me
Touch me
Doubt me
Face me
Deny me
Cleanse me
Stain me
Hold me
Undo me

I’m ancient
I’m fading
I’m wisdom
I’m decay
I’m boundless
I’m finite
I’m legion
I’m no name

I tried
I lied
I tried
I lied
