Track Name: Bathe Us All in Light
don’t look to the sky
no hope no help no light
the blindness of man
by fear we electrify

the vanishing dark

end the night
end the night
end the night
bathe all in light
end the night
end the night

don’t look to the sky
no hope no help no light
the blindness of man
by fear we electrify

the terror will grow

blazing illumination

the terror will grow

can’t save man from man

the vanishing dark
Track Name: Oculus
open the wound
reveal the piercing orb

the face of the void fractures the sky
a gaze of celestial fire
binds to flesh
that deteriorates
from the weight of the limitless black

you cannot hide
from the nightmare of existence
blanketed in cosmic expanse
cold, ruthless and consuming
your light is swallowed you are left exposed

relentless march
the searing vision

split the sun
emerge the oculus

endless power
empyrean terror

split the sun
emerge the oculus

lay cold
refined hatred

the eye sees through
beyond existence
Track Name: Pulling Teeth
mouth shut
eyes closed
conscious sleep

the room fills
watching eyes
the prospect of teeth

feeding a lustful greed
for pearl white trophies
collected like tiny dolls
preciously coveted

enter the mist
inhale slowly
lay down your head
free yourself of your burden
Track Name: Lung Float Test
are you alive?
can you sense the world around you?
can you float or will you sink?

trial for a trial
is it life for a life?
is there air with which you breathe?

arbitrary criteria

lung float test

imprisoned for
your desperation
values render you an animal
born to die or dead from birth
can you float or will you sink?

like being burned at the stake

lung float test

terminate
incarcerate
subject to the will
of the righteous

lung float test
Track Name: Total Mimetic
a new sense cultivated for reproduction
of predictable tropes

sustained by simulacra

i drown in the stench of sweat derived from mass assimilation
relentlessly driven

i cannot breathe the air is stale
i want to close my eyes
i want you all to die

when everything is different to be all the same

let us live in the endless reproduction of the copy
the simulation
the duplicate
the faded signal drowned in the dullest of noise.

total mimetic
Track Name: Night Communion
skin of iron
too high to die
we'll all be starving
sun blinds our eyes


we've found you walking
a crooked path
the weight of worlds
pulls while you pass

enter the forest
behold, acephale
cloaked in silence
drink of the grail

listerine verses
prosthetic psalms
too many voices
infinite arms

mind spiral throbs
no exit found
i am not here

cold
see, rise the ground
light blinds
beam eyes and mouth

the night communion
gathers around you
Track Name: Spirals
concentration towards the nothing
nullify self and meaning

materialize
dissolve

the horrific indifference
of a world without us

the sky turns
into spirals
consumed
by the helix

degraded
decayed
devoured
in abysmal black

release your will
bow to hatred

the horrific indifference
of a world without us

materialize
dissolve
