Track Name: Big Bang
black glass shatters in a flash of divinity
embryonic universe dead souls beyond infinity

asymmetry in the favor of matter
waiting for the fabric of reality to shatter
duplicity in a terminal collapse
delegates the hand of chance

existence to recompense
physical design these properties malign
assailant to innocence
fatalist sanctions
i’m waiting for a clean slate

extraterrestrial interdimensional paradox positive infinite
extraterrestrial interdimensional paradox positive infinite
extraterrestrial interdimensional paradox positive infinite
infinite infinite infinite

hypernova no direction
quantum phase with no reflection
kamikaze let it go
approaching absolute zero

asymmetry in the favor of matter
waiting for the fabric of reality to shatter
duplicity in a terminal collapse
delegates the hand of chance

intuition a toxic curse
a key to the universe
assailant to innocence
fatalist sanctions
i’m waiting for a clean slate

Track Name: Echoing The End
i can see the pallid face of death behind the flesh reflection
(and i’m echoing the end)
choking down the feral taste of abject astral imperfection
(and i’m echoing the end)
criminal the pressure of a faithless divinity
(and i’m echoing the end)
salvaging the visage of these implanted memories
(and i’m echoing the end)

silence in the aftermath
traces of the spirit path
a tragedy befallen softly
slipping slipping slipping slipping
into the void
(slipping into the void)
(slipping into the void)

a sickly note from the siren’s song
crystalline deceit from the great beyond
resonant dread in the ebb of time
and i’m echoing the end

isotropic curse of graceful binding intertwining
lovers form illogical desire
fire from the stars
scrape the shadows off the wall
i’m weeping traces chemical
placebo toxic psychoactive
failing respiration

silence in the aftermath
traces of the spirit path
a tragedy befallen softly
slipping slipping slipping slipping
into the void
(slipping into the void)
(slipping into the void)

a sickly note from the siren’s song
crystalline deceit from the great beyond
resonant dread in the ebb of time
and i’m echoing the end

salvation, salivation

radioactive dreaming in the night sky
lights out for the gods we won’t deify
suffocating in the mind-crypt (a head trip)
inverted by the symbols of impending mortality

reject what is written in the stars
echoing the end

sacrifice

(this is the black road, this is the last soul)
a fatalistic culling cryptically
(this is the black road, this is the last soul)
a hollow state to obliviate the truth
(this is the black road, this is the last soul)
question authority axiomatically
(this is the black road, this is the last soul)
waking psychosis parasite

(persisting war on consciousness)
our greater angels devolving
(persisting war on consciousness)
nothing sacred gets out alive
(persisting war on consciousness)
eliminated conception
(persisting war on consciousness)
rendering obscene divinity

this is the black road, this is the last soul
connections severed systematically
this is the black road, this is the last soul
abominations normalized
this is the black road, this is the last soul
erased invisible dependencies
this is the black road, this is the last soul
the sovereignty of mind must rise

Track Name: Satellite
corroded vision blurs a fine line
flooded dreams amass past this time
irrelevant a life continuum
forever falling low orbit vulture
gamma wave it’s crystal clear
signified in exosphere

future stranger than living fiction
catastrophe without depiction
civilized the soul will never wait
follow ties in deep encryption
apocalypse without description
civilized mankind will never wait

mother nature twist the dagger
raise our will above the night
pain to pass the flow of matter
we are your endless satellite

instill conviction
in this attrition
breathing deep in alpha tides
irrelevant the right to live and die
forever failing low orbit culture
beta wave it's becoming clear
somewhere in the exosphere

future stranger than living fiction
catastrophe without depiction
civilized the soul will never wait
follow ties in deep encryption
apocalypse without description
civilized mankind will never wait

mother nature twist the dagger
raise our will above the night
pain to pass the flow of matter
we are your endless satellite
Track Name: Enemy
enemy
would you lend me some oxygen
a single connection to reroute the circuitry
can you see
aerostats in the monochrome
suffocating softly an artificial sun

suffering the afterlife
ciphering the path of light
suffering the afterlife
until the fatal kiss of eternity

i don’t wanna be your patient zero
i don’t wanna be your experimental poisoned arrow
until the fatal kiss of eternity

(sic pereat totum, in amore et bellum universum a solemn inspectoris)

sanity
to narrow down the aperture
of a stereotaxic waking dream
sets you free
a particle collision
superposition the neon shadows in between

suffering the afterlife
ciphering the path of light
suffering the afterlife
until the fatal kiss of eternity

i don’t wanna be your patient zero
i don’t wanna be your experimental poisoned arrow
until the fatal kiss of eternity

(sic pereat totum, in amore et bellum universum a solemn inspectoris)
Track Name: Galaxywaste
space riot clandestined
godless death in all dimensions
the fugue of humanity unfolds
across a sea of frozen time
a legacy of failure for mankind

planetary assassination
critical mass hysteria
mortal coil decimation
a billion suns burn out tonight

this galaxy has gone to waste
annihilated extirpated grace
interstellar violence in the black of space
this galaxy has gone to waste

a courtesy of rare distinction
force feeding poison meme addictions
we’ll slow this culture to a crawl
align the soul with our product protocol

planetary assassination
critical mass hysteria
mortal coil decimation
a billion suns burn out tonight

this galaxy has gone to waste
annihilated extirpated grace
interstellar violence in the black of space
this galaxy has gone to waste
Track Name: Sunwalker
behold the face
of godless wonder
may it burn brightly
as your will defines its state of mind

witness the dreamer’s demise
we observe and we anesthetize
ethereal but alive
our world aflame in the violent sunrise

unmask the truth from disguise
until it bleeds down from vacant eyes
leading immaterial lives
we’re remaining for the incandescent reprise

behold the face
of godless wonder
weightless slumber
cradled in the solemn arms
of a welcoming abyss

by the light of the moon
reflecting shadows on our lunacy
traverse this madness calling
and icarus is falling in our name

by the light of the moon
dispelled illusions reveal what could be
erase this martyr’s calling
and icarus is falling
let icarus fall

a silhouette to channel shadows
siphon the dreams to hang them in the gallows
sunwalker have we not evolved
sunwalker is there no other choice
cleansing immolation
hypothermic shock
decisions, decisions

correct the silver wings’ course
defuse a shining death uncoerced
impervious to the source
we’re silent viewers of the stellar force

and maybe it’s wishful thinking
and maybe it’s a fated glimpse into the arcane
and maybe it’s eternal sinking
but this bright tomorrow will not be in vain

behold the face
of godless wonder
weightless slumber
cradled in the solemn arms
of a welcoming abyss

by the light of the moon
reflecting shadows on our lunacy
traverse this madness calling
and icarus is falling in our name

by the light of the moon
dispelled illusions reveal what could be
erase this martyr’s calling
and icarus is falling
let icarus fall

a quantum prism to harness infinity
splicing golden strands to reach divinity
sunwalker will we not ascend
sunwalker is there no other choice
in a fleck of luminescence
we embrace the collision
let icarus fall
Track Name: Edikt
tortured soul relinquished
in absurd antiquity
shattered institution
breeding ghastly monstrosities

bearing sickly points of view
a thousand eyes with focus untrue
darkroom paradox so quickly ostracized

twilight sinking vapid echoes
equate the density
lucrative a ghost shell ancient
parasites eternally
tracers breach the afterglow
subsonic life in depths below
conjugating whispers slowly
reverberating
transmit case of desperation
no clear path of separation
appealing to a lesser god
a futile claim retroactive
domination etched in silver
priority compromised
interstellar life arise

sanctified a life unliving
collide in sanctums untold
belief the meek shall fall before an empty throne
corrupt a wrath that’s unrelenting
diseased but we’re not listening
awake the fools shall rise to crush the will of gods

current state of levitation
broken horror majesty
supercell of gravitation
plume the spores of eternity

bearing sickly points of view
a thousand eyes with focus untrue
darkroom paradox so quickly ostracized

twilight sinking vapid echoes
equate the density
lucrative a ghost shell ancient
parasites eternally
tracers breach the afterglow
subsonic life in depths below
conjugating whispers slowly
reverberating
transmit case of desperation
no clear path of separation
appealing to a lesser god
a futile claim retroactive
domination etched in silver
priority compromised
interstellar life arise

sanctified a life unliving
collide in sanctums untold
belief the meek shall fall before an empty throne
corrupt a wrath that’s unrelenting
diseased but we’re not listening
awake the fools shall rise to crush the will of gods
Track Name: Ultraviolet
lifeless bodice
clothes are rich
etched in silent free speech stitch
sever ties to the wounded source
distract the mind
flows off the course
river’s end is just the start
life and death will never part
breakout into sovereign nation
abort the gift of all creation

ramparts skyscrape the sun
blackout horizons
filters the neon through
mankind in disrepair
contact denial
whispering thoughts untold

sell out
give in
pay up
lay down
we want your soul

tell the story
war for glory
tear the solution from our beating hearts in disillusion
tell the story
war for glory
we question our survival as we wait for death’s arrival

ultraviolet
guide the starlight
show us what we couldn’t see
ultraviolet
kill this silence
illuminate our destinies

fading shadows fading fast
casting civilizations past
convoluted
trips the wire
mortal shame befalls desire
entropy everywhere
befalls humanity unaware
reparation for the new tomorrow
sensory negation will abate our sorrow

ramparts skyscrape the sun
blackout horizons
filters the neon through
mankind in disrepair
contact denial
whispering thoughts untold

tell the story
war for glory
tear the solution from our beating hearts in disillusion
tell the story
war for glory
we question our survival as we wait for death’s arrival

ultraviolet
guide the starlight
show us what we couldn’t see
ultraviolet
kill this silence
illuminate our destinies
