Omens 01:49
Invite the host shadow into your life Submit to its whim, weak slave Destroy the ties with those that you love Only one, hollow and grave Carry the weight to the end of your days Cower young lamb and obey Give of yourself, repress your spirit Down in that hole you stay Feed the darkness that holds you clenched Submit to its whim, weak slave Remain here in this vulnerable wallow Only one, hollow and grave Forever find new depths to bury it all Cower young lamb and obey Delve deeper inside to desensitise Down in that hole you stay

And so the child must die To mark an age of suffering Embrace these senses Begin to feel again Go in to the woods Deep inside deprive Out of the depths Three beggars arrive Inescapable agony Finding no relief Submit to the torment Seek solace in this grief Remote isolation Distress and pain Embrace the fear Chaos Reigns Wake every day In realisation You are nothing Accept the sensation Soon to pass Sooner forgotten Loss of hope Grief is existence Pain and suffering forever Imagine it

Morning mist breaks As a new day is born Cacophony of birds Rustling of a fawn Awaken to the chorus Pack, stretch, and yawn Chilled lungs Hides for warmth are worn Extinguish the camp’s light And ride out at dawn Travellers from the wilds Journey on Into narrow glacial ravines Howling gusts that lash Frost shards shred the skin Through pain and stripped flesh Press on to snow peaked tops Lightning strikes the virgin snow Barrage of hail showers down These boots they weigh and drag Thickly bound as snow stuck Tight winds whip the surface Strain to fight the drag These eyes they well with pressure As night draws nearer Push to the woods for shelter Torches ablaze at arm’s length A glow illuminates the forest floor Tension in the atmosphere The group halted in their tracks To the sound of a low growl Silhouettes across the tree line Torch thrust embers flare Kindle crackle met with snarl Wall of matted grey fur Bite bore and aggressive stance A lone figure As light begins to wane Commander of wolves Lord ruler of this domain Moving through the brush Against the elemental grain In to that barren landscape Skies blacken, sleet, and rain

The Machine 05:51
The Machine It fills me with absolute dread The dim glow of television sets Soaking the road at night It fucks with my high basking under the street light Juvenile infantile out of the gene pool Burning cells with this white noise nonsense Turn off instead of wasting your life Expanding minds with friends and the good times You are a program You are governed Slave to that rancid spit Fluorescent food is nothing but plastic Engineered to trigger endorphins Crave and shake in the thralls of withdrawal Exhausted by nine to five All that is easy rapes you in this Day walking state of perpetual consumption Opt out and submit to your base conditioning Fuck with the pressure and see it all clearly Disenfranchised from this humanity End our bloodline and under rule Self sacrifice, exile from this gene pool Eradication of the plague That is human life Start the machine End this race Consider this merciful Devoid of consciousness Euthanize the people End of times Through the void Alone To never belong

Lockjaw 03:13
Abandon This husk Withered shell Rotting canvas Invite the host shadow into your life Submit to its whim, weak slave Destroy the ties with those that you love Only one, hollow and grave Carry the weight to the end of your days Cower young lamb and obey Give of yourself, repress your spirit Down in that hole you stay Constricted Choked and bound Chew and gnash Organs ground Scales writhe To the sound Relentless, fierce Mandible grip and pierce Corpse marionettes Blackened lung This nightmare coma Venom and stung Dark form slithers Fanged tooth, forked tongue Undergrowth beneath Glimpse the needled teeth Abandon this husk Feed the darkness that holds you clenched Submit to its whim, weak slave Remain here in this vulnerable wallow Only one, hollow and grave Forever find new depths to bury it all Cower young lamb and obey Delve deeper inside to desensitise Down in that hole you stay

Rebirth 05:14
Lives they travel through our vessels as we expire Into others, new born chapters of the soul We go seeking through the masses just to find Common purpose, degrees of familiarity Wise whole soul growing old With one ticket for control I’ve been told it’s just a ride Pay the toll when we’re still and cold Light will dim down to darkness in your final hour Pass the torch to a virgin bearer young and new As a phoenix from the ashes a flame ignites So the cycle of mortality continues In conception material will build and grow Form a marriage of innocence and wisdom Life is finite yet we are eternal Refreshed and ready, empowered by this new host
