Track Name: Gemini
I am the shore
Stars are deformed
Submerged in wave
Is this apocalypse?

Divining rod
Is this the end of it?

I am ruining
All that’s become of it
Hell’s wings flap
Vigilance

My god I’ve destructed

I am one - of the Earth
End of vigilance
This desert - speaks to me

Acropolis - of the ice
Gets ready for the storm
Destroying my heart

Willing to give
A single sight in eye
For the chance to live
In my mind’s disquise

Grow - Live - Destroy
Everything

I am one - of the Earth
End of Vigilance
This desert - speaks to me

Live - grow - sentence broke
Essence I give away

Grow - Live - Destroy
Everything
Track Name: Ultra Soul
Abandoned my religion
Find a place for
All the things I had lost
In the ancient war
-War of whores
Mother can’t save me
Every time I look
See another one die

Circle around the eclipse
Of the ancient moon
Becoming one with the
Omniverse

Ore in the rising force
Mined until it spits up a tomb
God has shed his skin
See him for what it is

I have reason to despise your soul
Inherent ghost becomes your perception
Bane of Ultra-Soul become the emergent
Endless dream becomes the only quotient
Ore in the rising force
Mined until it spits up a tomb
God has shed his skin
See him for what it is

Born - Scald - Raise -
A new wild

Circle around the... eclipse
Becoming with... the omniverse
She leaves a trail... of death
Remembrence of... the deeds

Every time I look
And every time I die
There is a new
Star in the sky
Track Name: Tyrannic
Yahweh
Yahweh

You’ve seen what’s ‘lo
Upon the hill
Marxism blows
Its final will

In the dead of day
A warrior cloaks himself away

Falconary Foe
Winds into a plume
Smokerise on dawn
Mellow flood wanders on

Yahweh
Yahweh

Forced to see an ocean
Of fear and loneliness
Isolated prospect
This flood has gotten near

Warning from the beacon sign
Away its final dark
Tyrannic, a horror-show
The metaphysic tribes depart
Track Name: Beyond Perdition
May I feed the wizard in the West?
Daylight - night life, I have killed the rest
May I see the sorcerer undressed
May have sacrificed but I know I did my best

Night time - forest time, I live in the breast
Conscious lives, manhood breathes, fight the urge to exist

“Heart is moved,” “baby broke” -
I can’t hear the rest

Right-side, never die, everything, everything’s gone
Fascist religofast, marxist, terrible whore
Promise broke, have a smoke, think of what you’re living for

Fuel these daily fires in my soul
Excuse to leave a contract for the whole - world
Right-side, never die, everything stays the same
In a hole hide away, fight the things you crave
Stay the same, quiet-talk, angel’s heart fades to grey
Stay alive, breathe a while, everything’ll be okay

Fuel these daily fires in my soul
Excuse to leave a contract for the whole - world
In a shell, innocence taken by the hate
Why can’t I realize everything stayed the same?
Track Name: Dutch
Ice on wind-swept plains
Forest rearranged
Quantify Titan’s Blade
Mesmerized, gone insane

Dutchmen raise the reich
Terrorized and left to die
Running through the rain
Time forgot why they came

Ice on wind-swept plains
Forest rearanged
Quantify Titan’s blade
Mesmerized, gone insane

They will see us
But they don’t need us
Pure emotion
Divine devotion

Dutchmen raise the reich
Terrorized and left to die
Running through the rain
Time forgot why they came

Burning - Fetus - Jesus
Pray to your guardian’s
Night - Froze
Miracles beaming out an angel’s dick

Megafiy your brain
Then you’ll see my pain
If you don’t feel, you’re blind
Teach a new man the way of all time

Dutch
Dutch
Dutch
The dutchmen ride out!
Track Name: Voracious Foe
I saw a flood at dawn
Voracious Foe
My children weep
Their hand so weak

Grab the... iron tusk
Animal drinks... its own blood

So wrong to eat of
Holy mask forbids love
My will is shaking,
Clear into a haze

Voracious
Voracious Foe

I am suicide, your only way out
Give into the fortress of compounds
Become, become, become the war
Beacon of the Northern Winds

Watch this flood consume
Water-logged soil abloom
I will make them pay for our sins
Terminus of god begins

Message of the soul, return to the luminix
Heaven becomes a jail
I have self-reliance, the club that breaks
Vengeance in the deadman’s bones

Eye is filled with scorn for the unknown
Cry until the weeding begins
I have self-reliance, hope defiance of fate
Messenger of terminus consumed

Where shall I leave the foe?
On the crossbars hung below
Step and step don’t fall off bridge

Planks explode into broke twigs
On the horsedrawn carriage winds
Arm the sailors, Gemini twins

With the sea I will float
Make-shift raft becomes my home
There’s a tiger in my bed
Hope he doesn’t chomp my head
Pray poseidon of the sea

Where shall I leave the foe?
On the crossbars hung below
Step and step don’t fall off bridge
Planks explode into broke twigs
On the horsedrawn carriage winds
Arm the sailors, Gemini twins
