Track Name: Agharta
It is beneath these pillars, these monuments, that this city lies in wait.
It is upon a sky bathed in crimson, that widened eyes fixate.

Magma caressing, magma embracing:
These buildings fall into flame.
From Enyo, a gentle kiss, wrapped in a blanket woven with fear.
Malaise, savior from complacency, a shrine for you created;
built from teeth, from blood, from soil and disdain.
Remorse, in untimely arrival, a deluge for you unleashed;
composed of tears, of waste, and panic.

Beneath, in deceit, in sleep: Agharta.
In merging light, in merging shadow; below the mountain.

Terror evolving, giving birth to regret; please echo amongst smoke.
Behind follows assent, compliance to stolen sight.
While the placid lay in the path of devastation,
A glaze comes over the eyes of the fearful.

Masks of Socius discarded,
to mimic tongues of deceit;
with chaos came the shape to imbibe an abandoned sky.

It is beneath these pillars, these monuments, that this city lies in waste.
It is upon a sky bathed in crimson, that widened eyes dilate.

Magma caresses, magma embraces: These buildings fallen to flame.

Track Name: An Archetype
Forever entwined within the chaos of time,
Bear witness to the void and the inevitable sign,
Entrusted with the seams so delicately defined,
I am the predecessor to your species' decline.

I am the archetype completed and defined.
I am the archetype, with rot you putrefy.
I am the predecessor to your species' decline.

For chaos and carnage,
For order and empathy.
For each and every life that now or once thrived, I live and I die.

Bear witness to the void and the inevitable sign,
I am the predecessor to your species' decline.

I've deceived motion, devoured the sky whole.
I am the archetype.

Track Name: Incursion
Our temples desolated, by King Hyperion
He seeks the path of the oracle,
No one will stand his path,
In this day of reckoning,
He tends to end the reign of the Gods.

Witness Hell upon this earth, and you will see, there's nothing left but suffering and misery.
A heartless king. A new reign.

In the path of the destruction.
Where are your filthy Gods now?

A heartless king.
A new reign.

Track Name: Currents
Lured by the grace of the waves,
He saw within his dreams,
A cerebral obsession now aligned with the tide.

Drawn by the need of the craving,
To feed his hungry sea,
The mouth of the ocean.

All that remained was footsteps,
Embedded within the sand.

And as he sank, swallowed within the throat of the water, he smiled.

His purpose was within majestic destruction.
As sustenance. As nourishment. A feast.

Self mutiny, betrayed by his own hand,
Only to be digested by Poseidon himself.

Track Name: Backglade
And this hunger felt,
From behind an eye of yellow,
Like enkindled steel through skin:
Bores into my skull.

Of the forest and dirt;
A bed upon to wake.
Within the bowels of the forest,
I am found.

I have been cast from my own home.
Exile; fed back to the earth by the way of the wolf.

Bared, their fangs to tear.
A feast awaits them.
But it is this they who betrayed me that will be consumed.

I will consume them all.

Usurper,
The title of which I've stolen.
Infant beast, I am your womb.

I am your womb.

Fear, descend upon this town.
Death, brought between the jaws of the canine.

The jaws of the canine.

Castigation, a serenade composed of dirt soiled by blood.

Beg me for mercy.
Weep for your gods.
Grieve, as your stomach is fed to the pack.

(Written & performed by Jason Schiff)
Track Name: Absolute Zero
Your indecisions are trearing us apart,
make up your mind and move on with your life.
you chose addiction over your loved ones,
now you're alone and you're falling apart.

SO FUCKING DEAL WITH IT

This venom continues to course through your veins,
poison yourself and the ones all around.
there's nothing left of you only my memories,
there's nothing left of you...

You are my Brother.
You are my Blood.

Track Name: From Ash
Proboscidea, bring light unto our being
Proboscidea, bring sight to those beneath

Subjugate until surrender reveals,
a shattered face floating up from within the throes.
Recreate until a feeble constructed
fate weakens under the weight of the thrones.

From ash.

my mother of gentle being,
my father of the iron cane

In your name I have slain
Collected disdain

I am your reaper.
I am your son.

By the seed of the wolf
Birthed by the earth
Consumer of all not deemed of your worth

My savior, why have you forsaken me?
Was I not loyal to all that you will?
The faces of all who I have sacrificed have returned to torture me

Please, I beg mercy.
Take this light from my eyes.
My mind crumbles beneath the weight which with you burden me.

Proboscidea,
This hell with which you've betrayed me,
Submersed me within disease,
This will be paid in blood.

From my bone I cut the flesh you have bestowed,
I have no choice but to remove you from my body.

From my body.

Track Name: Throne Of Bone
This cell is now my home
These walls, my family

My crimes they cannot condone
Yet theirs exceed my own
They've turned my flesh into bone
For this I will take the throne.

And now,
I must escape.
I cannot live another day.

I fight my way through the stone,
And taste the blood from their throats,
They fall beneath my claws,
My mercy reflects their own.

But the king has caught word of me,
Into the night he has fleed.
His cowardly heart will be fed to me,
Piece by piece.

Fool, Fiend, Coward
I will dine on your innards

Fool, Fiend, Coward
I will feast upon your flesh

Fool , Fiend, Coward
Your time has come to an end

I WILL TAKE YOUR HEAD

Now that the king lays at my feet,
I will reign in supremacy.

Now that the king lays at my feet,
This kingdom belongs to me.


This kingdom belongs to me.

Track Name: Disrupting The Abacus
In light of all,
That has now come to be,
The sun forsaken,
Enwrapped in reverie.

The sky is drowned in crimson,
For we ignored the signs,
We will be without witness,
In the isolation of our minds.

He, the servant.
The pit of broken backs.
He, the master.
The pit of bones burned to ash.

Instead of the gown,
We're covered in rotten vines,
Instead of the crown,
We're ruled by fragments of fantasy.

Feed me.
My omnipresent misery.
Oh.

Only within
the ashes
of destruction
can creation.. be reborn.

Drown beneath a sea of disease,
may the mother of all scorn.

Revelations of the wretched mind bring shadows to these tombs

Bathed in the blood of slaughtered might
Born from a hundred thousand wombs. x2

My brothers, my sisters.
Our will be done.
My brothers, my sisters.
Our will be done.

We, the servant.
The well of the elixir.
We, the servant.

We, the master.
The spring of panacea.
We, the master.

I wish you well, my brothers.
I wish you well, my sisters.

Dismantle the statue.
Disassemble the structure.
Disintegrate the cognition.
Disrupt the abacus.

Dismantling, Disrupting The Abacus.
