Track Name: Fissuræ Moralis
There is an evident principle,
That you choose to ignore,
Color blind yet seeing red,
You've forgotten what we came here for,
They are the chosen veil, of your advantages,
Yet you strive to fail, so full of shit!
Immaculate in their disguise,
As they cover the truth with their lies,
As eminent as our coming demise,
The truth shall set you free!
Veil of morality,
Shrouding their true intent,
White robes of decency,
Like wolves in lanolin!
Turning the lie inverse
Like wolves in lanolin,
A sacrificial lamb
To be martyred for god!
We must Impose our will,
Upon the weakening kind...
Track Name: The Liar and the Thief
Here next to you,
A liar and a thief,
As you lay down your soul,
Come down from that cross,
Take judgment for yourself,
Now it is done.
Divulge the ignorance, the bliss, the rapture
Of this tormented existence reaching to your core
And smothering your soul,
Indulge the deviance of unrequited defiance
And bring the knowledge of their sins
To counselors of old,
We are gone but not forgotten
In the silence of years ago
In death we are remembered
In life forgotten and old
We breed our inhuman nature.
And i see you contemplating suicide, Suicide
Why are you waiting just pull the trigger
Just pull the trigger and die!
Your whole life has lead you to your suicide, Suicide
Why are you waiting just pull the trigger
Just pull the trigger and die!
Track Name: At the Altar of Lethe
Amongst the rise in superstition
Can be found an old tradition
Of what you don't know
Cannot sink its teeth into you.
We live in the age of ignorance,
A common disgrace to our kind,
Where sense is drowned,
By the Baptist,
Your TV.
Lethe be praised
For her ignorance is a model to us all!
The less we all know
The less can we defend,
Hear for the first time,
Your natural right
As a killer by nature,
To stand up and fight!
Track Name: Only Silent, Still
Inscribed in papyrus
A thousand fucking years ago
A message meant to warn
Of our current age
Where no man is free
And all are enslaved
To a god they create
This wretched sinners curse
To be educated but damned
Is the vilest manifesto
Enshrined in gold
Encased like the holy scriptures
Hidden away from your eyes... DNA
We’ve come so far
Yet the darkness blinds you still
Let the light of the truth shine in
Lest you limit your evolution
Yet chances are
As a stillborn rise again
So would mankind
Accept what really happened
No god above to save you now
Wretched again are your actions
No creator condoning hate
Only silence, still
Watch now as they suffer
Where is your father now
Watching the world burn
Only silent, still
This mysterious
Absence in the universe
A foretelling of
What is to come
Track Name: Paragraph II
We hold these truths to be self evident
That all man is equal
And are endowed with these rights
Life, liberty and the pursuit of
Being fucking happy
Which when a government ignores
It is the right of the people
To altar or abolish it
We don't need you forgiveness
We don't need your faith
We don't need your belittling hypocrisy
Say what you believe is true
Preach about your faith
We encourage you to remember you bleed the same!
(This is our oath!)
We will not allow you to oppress us.
We will end your infinite war.
Money is worthless against the blood in our veins.
before your final breath
As you cower and beg for mercy
You will know our name...
