Track Name: The Betrayal
Tales, warn of a fate
Death, reward that awaits
Flesh, unbearably cold
Curse, has begun to unfold

Travel deeper, start to sink
Your fear will forge the missing link
Shackled now, you've set it free
Horrors born of iniquity

Bliss ends
Wisdom

Breathe, a sickening must
Thoughts, poison your trust
Fear, deadens your dreams
Mind, splits at the seams

Travel deeper, start to sink
Your fear will forge the missing link
Shackled now, you've set it free
Horrors born of iniquity

Bliss Ends
Wisdom

They say it's a lie
Die
The marsh is alive
Rise

Ice covers your limbs
Salt sculpting your skin
Lodge of infamy
Enthroned in misery

Travel deeper, start to sink
Your fear will forge the missing link
Shackled now, you've set it free
Horrors born of iniquity

Bliss Ends
Wisdom

They say it's a lie
Die
The marsh is alive
Rise

Conqueror now
Sharp is my blade
It shapes the truth

In my domain
Cold is my reign
Strength in treason

Fortess of ice
Trapped but not bound
Scry beyond walls

Betrayal of all
Warmth and of light
Dusk brings clear sight
Track Name: Plague Bringer
Lust for life
Boils your blood
And blurs your sight

Lust for more
Punishment
For success
Harbinger
Of final rest

All things peak
And then decline
The life's escaped
Your Frankenstein

A red masque
Stretched thin across
Empty eyes
Skin dies

Purification disease
To reset humanity

Carve your name at any cost
On the tomb of history
Makes you feel immortal

Lust for life
Boils your blood
And blurs your sight
Lust for death
Track Name: Bicephalic
I am of spite, offspring of the Styx,
figure chiselled by the scythe
Constricted into one; soul symbiosis,
bisection of hemisphere
Dual mind, duelling for the share within,
vestige of dichotomy failed

Four keen eyes, kaleidoscopic sight,
distorted vision set to strike
Two tongues tied and twisted through a frenzy thirst,
twice enticed by stimulus burst
Inharmonious inner scream echoing from the merging streams,
tritones peak and amplify
Strangle or caress, conjugate phantom hands,
tactile echos resonate
Overwhelmed, our assembly wanes,
to divide is to survive

Chaos from chaos
Entropic womb

Sentenced in flesh, servant of the reptile brain,
spitting venom left and right
Serpent of self-interest, crowned king of infinite space,
mirror trap horizon cage
Basilisk antumbral gaze, petrify perpetual rays,
unison division
Purpose is in constant permutation,
hate and hunger merge as one
Walk the edge dividing light and shadow,
howling at the moon and at the sun
Track Name: Helm of Hell
Spawned in blackout spell, bewildered at the gates of Hell
Eternal night, skeleton branches drain the light
Walk this ground of fear, in your mind the path is clear
Classical display of a fiendish realm fractures the dream
All vision fades, irises blanch a milky-dead
Immortal fate, prance around zombified state
Vice the daemons in, fissure under tremored limbs
Dig within the void, no trace of your traded soul
Raise the iron to open the gate, rip the red sky with your blade
Claim victory as the armies take form, rising with you above pain
Step after step, knee deep in liquid death; ignore bleeding wounds and broken bones
Collapsing skies open to a new world, steering yourself in the swirl

Hundred souls under your command, share your fatality
Pulled by the force of the cataract ahead, plunged into infinite flames
Blaze of the abyss drags your remains, coating an armor of faith
World speeds in black under words of decay, everything forms the nothing once it's gone
Gather all the parts of your scattered self, puzzle up the pieces of your head
Rolling wave of sinful absurdity flies about the limbs of logic lost

Wrecked upon a solipsistic mental reef, illusions hardened Eden's garden
Twisting fate of fallen sunken empty ship, illness is the nest in which they rest

Euclidean ruins carried in the wind, frenzied destinations strobe
Referential fades in the distance, precious North Star singularize
Wiped out; memorize; intersperse, navigate apart infinitely
Reckon by yourself the Equation, no truth is revealed across the Styx

Don the Helm of Hell, face the dread of never was
Take the Helm of Hell, steer straight and unbecome
Track Name: Mindless March
Our pride is strong but meaningless and wasting
Propelled along forced crusade no Holy Graal
Flow with the throng iron filing forming fathoms
Ten thousand strong white cap current mindless mobs

Bleed as much as you can
Until you no longer stand
You were doomed from the first step
It's a death you won't forget

Your learn the facts nothing but a foundering marsh
Your psyche cracks mirror gazed mirage dissolved
No turning back chaos control your desires
With primal acts the swirling swarm swallows its tail

Bleed as much as you can
Until you no longer stand
You were doomed from the first step
It's a death you won't forget

Raze the world
Spread your hate
Self-control is optional
Invincible
Careless core
Make of this walk your final stake

Raze the world
Spread your hate
Invincible
Careless core

I rise alone, crusted blood a red mask blinds
And now I've known, the sweet roar of running blood
I claim this throne, to lead a new depraved horde
And you'll be shown, the march begins with just one step
Track Name: Bile
Seat of courage shadowed
By false pretender's boast
Cast adrift in a rotting raft
Sweaty hands
Grip the oar

Nausea boils in the name of Bile

Shallow river sinking deep
Hallow haven in foul brew steep
Emetic prayers

The earth is vomiting
Acrid filth
Caustic wellspring
Remove traces of life

Holding on the stone
Your body flies like a flag in the flow
Embrace the pedestal anchor
Pray you'll soon be a corpse

Molten ablution
Come eruption cleanse
Kneel at the altar
Address the devil
In his own tongue
Lay bare your guts

Blackout enlightenment
Summoned at the hall of kings
Current drags your mind below
Body stiffens but remains alive

Drift…
Track Name: Light's Last Sigh on the Equinox
Equinox of Fall, you are the turning point
Bury me again, the eternal battle
And the winter comes, with its misery
And the winter storm forms far beyond

As the days contract and bind the night
The fading colors desaturate to brittle grey
And the sun fails, with its light and warmth
And the sun falls, under winter's strength

Splinters form from final rays, a freezing premonition
Shiver at the sight of inevitable waning
And the frost wafts into the colder air
And the frostbites deepen, within; deepen...

Light's last sigh brings twilight's myopia
Squinting sidelong glances reveal night's tapestry
And the darkness rises above, within the sky
And the darkness stalks the barren ground
