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
2.
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

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]
4.
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]

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

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

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

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
