Track Name: Lords of Lavish Filth
Lords of Lavish Filth


the most high walk amongt us,
cloaked within the flesh
know not God
know your fate lies in the hands
of the puppeteers
not divine as the parables declare

broadcast from concealment, ventriloquist
sermonize, exploit your marionettes
with strings of disdain controlled by hypocrisy
stitched within the fibers of sackcloth and ash
a withering veil over your eyes
regenerates the weakness every time you kneel
set ablaze the thickets of ignorance

Your saviors bask in hatred of your creation
stitched within the fibers of sackcloth and ash
proliferating veil over your eyes
trapped in blindness
you are servants to your overlords

salvation for your slavery
salivating for your soul
mental distress and oppression
flee from the struggle they shall detest

social collapse
bleeding through the hills on the horizon
human holocaust

lords of lavish filth
feast on the dead
casting shadows of ruin on the wasteland
surge of murderous intent
cannibals of fear
casting shadows of ruin on the wasteland
Track Name: Prismatic Delusion
Prismatic Delusion


lurking beyond the perceptional world
a spectrum of light designed to enslave the foolish mind
since the beginning, the moment of birth
commenced the light's assimilation
negation
binding souls to the prison of Earth
to accommodate a slave deprivation

Prismatic delusion
with so many paths to follow and none to save your soul
divisions of darkness swarming the blood
calcified minds go blind

lechery and wealth sway the flow
dictating from the shadows to stay afloat
by their God's design
mind dispersion

chains embrace your appendages
and you sip from a brackish sea of lies
The wicked have come forth
before your eyes
The message is clear

We are the acolytes, too weak to overthrow
nefarious kings from their thrones

Mere puppets cannot change the flow
We are the acolytes
let them bleed our bodies of its soul

plagued are the thoughts of those who think
reality is what is seen
dissimulation conceals the fog of suffering

We are the acolytes
too weak to overthrow
bleed the body of its soul

We sleep in wasted dreams and lucid memories
Slumber apprentice
Reabsorbing back into the machine
false light refracts
through sightless eyes
Track Name: Withered on the Vine
Withered on the Vine


Forged from the fires in the belly of the Earth
beware thine demon
convincing are the words to an innocent spirit
that you were born a heathen

Leering amongst the deviant
Leering amongst the villainous
Luring the frailty of man
Isolate and devour

Struggle to inherit a heaven that does not exist
whispers of mortality loom over everything
as if they ripped the sun out of the sky
Pales in the wake of death's stride
screams of mortality loom over everything
as if they ripped the stars out of the night sky
you praise a darkness disguised by light

Parallel to none we exist
by the grace of the divine
propagation causing Man to decline

as you wither on the vine
devouring deception
as you wither on the vine
They will watch as you decay
only sheep are sure to follow and obey

The weak will be crushed by walls of the tomb
built by frailty which resides
within your veins
pumping deadly venom directly into
the heart of a desolate shell of wasted skin

Lost in perpetual dreamscapes
reality
Lost in perpetual fantasy

Leering amongst the deviant
Leering amongst the villainous
your eyes once glossed with innocence
will see no truth
so unfortunate
to live depraved
and carry that burden
to your grave

[Solo :Andy Thomas]

Putrefy on the vine swallow lies festering and waiting
for the harvester to come reclaim your fate
Putrefy on the vine swallow lies festering and waiting
for death to strike and end your destroyed life
writhing, dying
cut yourself free from the vine with apostasy

[Solo :Malcolm Pugh]
Track Name: The Mortal's Harvest
The Mortal's Harvest


pure evil and tragedy
harvested by the mortal man
at the brink of extinction
with fragile minds and broken spirits
dissolve at the helm of dissension
a rippling misfortune
we are nothing more than shadows and dust
captive in the shackles
of flesh and blood

they may repent, nevertheless
the prevalence of life must now recess

[solo: M. Pugh]

something in the back of the mind
calling forward
bleed the leeches of consumption dry
crush the vermin or they will saturate
infesting the celestial orb to absorb the resource
permeate
we are a hideous bane
universal pariah
population termination
unleash pestilence
cleanse the mistake
there will be inevitable ramifications

[solo: M. Pugh]

cravings for the human conception
indulging in lunacy
guided by a mortal's consumption
comfort as sloth and greed entwine

[solo: M. Hawkins]
Track Name: Clarity
(Interlude)
Track Name: Constellation of Flies
Constellation of Flies

On your knees you feed a trinity never seen
and pay your weight in gold
purchasing admission through the gates of paradise
milk and honey flow from a land that builds a swarm
blotting out the sun is a constellation of flies

self entitled dead stride amongt the living
feeding of the glorious plague, falsified lore

lies bestowing imbecilic flesh
abide thy glory or face eternal death

spilling a disease
a filthy seed down the throats of your offspring
do not present your trust to such disgust
wide must become the iris
faith is a virus
bring forth the fall eradicate the contagion

self entitled dead stride amongt the living
feeding of the glorious plague, falsified lore

smothered by it's presence
the scourge of the Earth
strangulation by a clerical collar
a purposeless existence
will suffocate you slow

lies bestowing imbecilic flesh
abide thy glory and face eternal death

abide the chains of slavery
or you will reap what you have sown
Track Name: Worthless Vessel Flawed
Worthless Vessel Flawed


Peering deep within myself
Yearning for the grip of death
cherish the thought of my own damnation
The frosted shimmer of demise
The filth of my soul bares the
weight of a thousand dead
mirroring the eyes of my demons
yet embraced like the coils of a serpent
vast is the burden while gasping for air

Staring at the fathomless ocean of coward's blood
Sink into the infinite sea of failing gods
frantic drowning, fade in oblivion
Frantically drowning in a legacy of hatred
mentally bereft I anticipate death
nothingness all I have left
the paradigm of a
worthless vessel flawed by design

Wither away
helpless despair as I await
a blistering soul consumed by flame
clenching remorse
my madness, rage
coalesce to nourish my apparition

Hell does not exist
no heaven above only the black abyss
Severed from the ties
set forth my lost spirit
Set me free of humanity

Peering deep within myself
Yearning for the grip of death
cherish the thought of my own damnation
The frosted shimmer of demise
with no compromise
Termination of a life
Track Name: Immaculate Machine
Immaculate Machine

Truth is all perspective
laced with transparency
Immaculate Machine
manifests a perilous display abroad
perpetual menacing
bleak facade

woes of servitude continue to bloom
the cries of mortal men begin to consume you all
Immaculate Machine
manifests a perilous display abroad
fear the lies
lies that stem
when fear is taught
stand in awe of your tyrants

with armor as soft as whispers
and lips entranced by silence
lashing out with logic or violence
never will you forget
The strong will be tapered off
and the rest will still remain
to play a game
their flesh will fuel the flame
They will hold the sky in place
with pillars of smoke
in a cage you will remain

pluming shadows of dust resides as it fills the sea
but our masters will continue to drown
from the thirst of greed

woes of servitude continue to bloom
the cries of mortal man begin to consume you all
Immaculate Machine
manifests a perilous display abroad
chains of tyrannous
devious uncertainty

gaze beyond the barriers of a world unclear
under dust, under the rubble
a bleeding sphere

obscurity
no polarity
conspiracy
nothing but greed for currency
Immaculate Machine
Track Name: Reaping the Earthbound Revelry
Reaping the Earthbound Revelry


I have destroyed myself once more
sipping the rivers of rot

Duality has cast me aside
there is an avalanche awaiting
I shall indulge
and erupt upon this world
essence of reprise
I have become what I despise

I have destroyed myself again
I am perverse and obedient
to the negligence
challenging virtue and vigor
To amalgamate the damned
to live as a fallen king
growing old of divinity
as the evil ripened from within
never releasing, calling forth
mindlessly obey
embracing dismay
never releasing, calling forth
subliminal reverberation
echoes through eternity
wave after wave of futile effort

I have forsaken my fallacy
reaping the earthbound revelry

reaping the earthbound revelry
I foresee clarity
penance and despair justify
glorious reparation
transcend
I am my savior
at peace with sovereignty

I am defeated, yet I have won
I am my own worst enemy
I am a slave to the intoxicant
I am a servant of gold
I am a thrall of mockery
I am the master of my soul
