Hexit 04:29
Thoughtless process only action through a social call A world of evidence for a world that wants none at all Slam the gavel, digi-hammer Trendy judgement waits A pitted anvil, stained and worn A net to catch your fate Flood the targets, feckless warriors Hiding from the sword Reason given, reason quelled All reason now ignored Hexit - Hexit - Hexit A web of disconnection Separates us at a rapid pace Knowledge replaced by images Time to exit the human race Hire liars, crying foul when they fucking lie Self reflection? Mere deflection; democracy defiled Bombing children, bombing parents Only we should have the bombs rage against the order As your order rages on Play into their game Erect the corral in which you graze I see your pain, I'm sending love And praying as you're razed Hexit - Hexit - Hexit A web of disconnection Separates us at a rapid pace Knowledge replaced by sound bytes Time to exit the human race Log out the human race Thought and process; we are judge at this casting call Victor/victims, target rich; fuck it - kill them all

I am he who speaks to cowards I whisper in their ears Asking what it is they desire and gifting only fear Tablets know me, my words are etched Unyielding and forever carved Fathers hear me, their children fear me I have painted their scars Prostrate at this bank of tears Quenching this thirst with everything you've feared Ruby streams and rusted dreams Are everything that came to me A vision being of a world I’ll have you know I am the floodgate, cast my mandate to Deflagrate the thankless ingrates Invite your rivers to flow We are me, this is how you know me My words pour from your face A distant mind, a nearer echo A spirit without a trace This is mine; a darker man You are an ocean of ghosts You are we, we guide your voice A perfect and malleable host Prostrate at this bank of tears Quenching this thirst with everything you've feared Ruby streams and rusted dreams Are everything that came to me A vision being of a world I’ll have you know I am the floodgate, cast my mandate to Deflagrate the thankless ingrates Open your arms and invite the rivers to flow

The closer we float to this endless nothingness The pull of the void holds us tighter with empty arms Double back - nose to nose with the wasteland The bones of salvation gift wrapped in the sand But a shilling shy at the edge of the river Our host is gracious and allows us aboard A twisted axis, cocked and wobbled Should the blind never see? How many years will it take to learn? In ten we drown But in five we burn The chorus is scattered, a refrain unsung Minor progressions as we herald in the cold embrace of the sun Minor progressions into the cold embrace of the sun And here are, dance upon the precipice A duet balancing will and ignorance Over the edge, over the world, over the pit A graceful fall to death from twisted pirouette Our face in the bedrock Our head covered in brine Entombed with the advancement we sought Stepping backwards, progressing in reverse Adorned in stupidity Adoring the perverse The chorus is scattered, a refrain unsung Minor progressions as we herald in the cold embrace of the sun Minor progressions into the cold embrace of the sun Nine and seven, zero and one A million voices singing for none The chorus is scattered, a refrain unsung Minor progressions as we herald in the cold embrace of the sun Minor progressions into the cold embrace of the sun

Here sits Mars in the sky A blink in the corneal pale Hermes races to warn us As Freya disowns us We are posed like marionettes Our forms paint twisted shadows About the fire Nothing yet to say Need my hate-fix of the day Gotta dink the truth From mouths of liars Here we are again Loving hatred for our kin Embracing all these things of our that fail Mars sits in the sky Watches as we cast our die He's confident that once again we will Swallow our Tail A phoenix rises from decay But ashes must come first Let's set the blaze The cleansing burn of flesh Turn up the heat 'til there's nothing left Who wants peace With so much Cain to Raise No more gods in the sky Dead, no more purpose to serve Hermes tried to forewarn us Now our children abhor us

By the means of your laughable power we were pushed to the corners of the veil my kind forced into a shallow grave our fingers bled as we clawed the way from this ethereal tomb the light of your consciousness guiding our way Our face - forever hidden Our influence - undeniably there Invictus etched into our being Defectum, upon the cross you bear Your subjects called our name With twisted tongues, they came Begging for the answer to their prayers ...They wished us... Awake - we are risen Awake - we are here Awake - unbound and ready With darkness legionem eclipsem Laid to waste with our brand upon your face this war is more than vengeful glee Now the veil that once confined, upon our brow gives total control Your light - waned and empty Your influence - undeniably bare Destrui, in manubis nostris rune sumus cicatricum refertam Your subjects called our name With twisted tongues, they came Begging for the answer to their prayers ...They bade us... Awake - we are risen Awake - we are here Awake - unbound and ready With darkness legionem eclipsem Now at rest, your life pulled from your chest A gift is granted - my gift of vengeful glee And the pale - a burial shroud Interred within a mound of your failure Awake - we are risen Awake - we are here Awake - unbound and ready With darkness legionem eclipsem Awake - we are risen Awake - we are here Awake - unbound and ready We are darkness legionem autem

Raised in hate Held there by fear I am coddled By the things that I hold dear Learned to close my eyes to see While I am kept warm in pundit tapestries My eyes aren't my own These thoughts are the same I've danced this fucking dance Until my equilibrium decayed My thoughts speak my heart, my heart speaks in tongues My tongues speaks these thoughts, these thoughts that are undone Walk a path of unbeaten steps So many laps a highway is left A road not taken yet a road always seen Should we leave the past in past That it be buried in weeds? My thoughts speak my heart, my heart speaks in tongues My tongues speaks these thoughts, these thoughts that are undone My eyes - cauterized I'm pulling lid from lid Shadows make their way to shapes Blurs find their edge A boundless sky Embraces the black Before me a horizon of embers - a void at my back A choice before me, A pill that I force down Chase the cure with my pride So much that I must drown My thoughts speak my heart, my heart speaks in tongues My tongues speaks these thoughts, these thoughts that are undone There is no pain, only self serving marionettes Cut the wires and strip their flesh Make a new race - reinfuse humanity And with the cry of a newborn tongue, a twist of flesh and a scream… We will be reborn

Sorrow Is 03:08
The earth is swollen A distended belly Pregnant with the rounded gases of pain And its birthed once again A demonic and twisted soul A carrier of justice and lies Torn from a womb That’s re-seeded when needed Vengeance never aims to die Sorrow is Sorrow Mounds to foothills Those foothills to ridges Soon the sky will hardly remain

Poison Oasis 05:18
These hands are broken and covered in pain Calloused digits aiming to scrape again Against the lot of them Damaged smiles count the miles The distance we have marched to fail Endless wars between tolerant hordes This chaos is settled This home is our Hell Division is rising Reason now polarizing My voice is broken, like sand in my throat A desperate man in a world of screams A place of prismatic dreams So many tears; so many fears If I could kill your shadows Kill the cancer, end your suffering Destroy ourselves The cure is the disease (Division is rising Reason now polarizing) I’ve earned this piece, earned it all This slice of nothing is my own reward Scream to the wind with nothing to say But a little hatred goes a long way I can’t stop the fall Not in time for this I can’t cure it all I won’t, not for this I’ve earned this piece, earned it all This slice of nothing is my own reward Scream to the wind with nothing to say But a little hatred goes a long way

Mammoth 05:30
Faced with darkness in our light Success and love we lace with spite Silver linings lining graves Darkest clouds in brightest days Crushed and oppressed because we fly high The face of self loathing - a countenance with hollow eyes Confronting doubt I doubt your doubt in me An empty fear they fostered It is time to foster a fear of you Walk like mammoth walks through walls Each challenge met is one that falls Ancient wisdom through eons calls Be a giant against them all Boot to the throat whilst giving praise And finding clarity in haze Choke upon the breath of love While gasping for my war above Beneath this cresting sea of confusion Where the deepest breath would end my illusion Confront myself, never again to sow my doubt in me This fight I thought was Far From Home Now I claim it This fight is my own Walk like mammoth walks through walls Each challenge met is one that falls Ancient wisdom through eons calls Be a giant against them all You are mammoth and can not fall Each wall they build, you crush like straw You are the giant that stands alone You are mammoth; you are your own
