Track Name: Void
Incinerate the past
Weathered soul
In the void that finds you

Differentiate the path
You're not alone
In the void that finds you
Track Name: Asphyxia
Barricades of visions, darker than the truth
Uncharacteristic divisions
Omens of an impending doom

And it breaks my will in time
As it takes over my mind
Projecting sorrow to me
The sickness won't leave me be

Self-deconstruction
Hazardous to reality
Mortal thought inception
Generating an altered self

Patient to an illness that's self-produced
And the dark harmonies of mental abuse

And it breaks my will in time
As it takes over my mind
Projecting sorrow to me
The sickness won't leave me be

Pathological fear crafting all your pain
Psychological induced sickness
Fragments of your illustration

Incinerate the past
Weathered soul
In the void that finds you

Differentiate the path
You're not alone
In the void that finds you

Incinerate the past
Weathered soul
In the void that finds you

Differentiate the path
You're not alone
In the void that finds you

This entity wrecks all you create
It is the wielder of all hate
As we find our pathway to the end
Where all this darkness shall transcend
Track Name: The Seeker
Frightening doubts, crawling in
Frantic queries, veiled as sin
Facts and truths, I dispute
Confront inquests, I can't compute

Inner war, I endure
To purify this tainted core

Delve deep into your soul
Seek the path above them all

Dark sages spread across the land
Derailing seekers to the path that's damned
Bestow strength to egoic minds
Instilling evil to mankind

Panic laden societies
Soaked in discontent
Mayhem walks their blood
A vicious cycle of torment

Inner war, I endure
To purify this tainted core

Delve deep into your soul
Seek the path above them all

Seek the path of ascendance
Seek the path of ascendance
Seek the path of ascendance
Seek the path of ascendance

Delve deep into your soul
Seek the path above them all
Track Name: Radiate
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Illusion
Invisible walls
Control our perception
Our minds are poisoned by the encryption

No one's safe from their crown
Chained with no release
We're all lost and deceived

Waves of their lives, floating inside the space around
Sliding down far from the truth
Our lifeless lives

The blurry lines swept us down, the broken crystalline
We are programmed to believe, the vast design we perceive

Weapons of beams that can't be seen
Paint the colours onto our screens
We can never know what is real
Can we trust what we feel?
They are the ones who orchestrate the sequence of blasphemy
Can't you see?

Break the system, take the shackles off
Break the system, take the shackles off
Break the system, take the shackles off
Break the system, take the shackles off

Greed and lust fueling the machine
That's stripping down our basic needs to live
Falsifying hope and burying all our dreams
Colliding with the wrong ones
We fight our own kind
A swindle to break us apart

Break the system, take the shackles off
Break the system, take the shackles off
Break the system, take the shackles off
Break the system, take the shackles off

The blurry lines swept us down, the broken crystalline
We are programmed to believe, the vast design we perceive

The blurry lines swept us down, the broken crystalline
We are programmed to believe, the vast design we perceive
Track Name: Heathen
Forsaken, rousing in silence
Vascular systems, now tapering
Concealing of vivisepulture
Debts to pay for this false inhumation

This cold void affrighting the mind
My bloodshot eyes, do they deceive?
Sermoned by the twin beams of light
Of an ostensible apocalypse

Your decent is to nothing
Oblivion, condemned to subsistence undone
Housed in shadow
There is no escaping this feeble construct of your deeds

Wielder of the master orb
Deception's exposed
Father of all fallacies
My abode to be
In turmoil and agony

Alternate reality
On the other side
Rendering my cataleptic
Wandering corridors of crypts
How long can vitality remain?

Shimmering light
Shining through
Heed life
It calls me again and again
Is this the end?
Gaia revive me once again
Gaia revive me once again
Track Name: The Collector
This is all I know, I cannot be tamed
To torture you all was my designed fate
Conceived in the wallows of shame
I cannot resist the urge to be the only one to exist

Save your prayers
I see your end in sight
The fire burns black
For I have arrived
I breathe the light that will never shine
Blinding your eyes and reaping your life
You're left to die

I travel the world from land to sea
Light will never shine wherever I may be
Devour you all
I stage your fall
No mercy at all
The darkest of days all you'll know

Save your prayers
I see your end in sight
The fire burns black
For I have arrived
I breathe the light that will never shine
Blinding your eyes and reaping your life
You're left to die

Conceived
Petrified and never to be free
I hear silent cries reverberating 'round me
The fear, it never subsides, I left them all to die
Save me from the heathen path
I never chose to be this way

Fire burning black (Fire burning black)
Fire burning black (Fire burning black)

Conceived
Petrified and never to be free
I hear silent cries reverberating 'round me
The fear, it never subsides, I left them all to die
Save me from the heathen path
I never chose to be this way
Track Name: Dissipate
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Metamorphosis
Darkness starts to take its toll (to take its toll)
A looming fear set to unfold
My blood's transfused by the beast (by the beast)
Who I am slowly disappears

A thousand fires burning inside, the demon's seed I cannot defy
Metamorphosis has already begun
Can I be saved? Can this be undone?
I am the man the sin did chose
The one to devour, and made to fall
Lucifer's what I am to be, but I won't let him become me

And I will fall
I'll take you with me
You will die for tempting me
And if I crawl you will be the ground beneath
I won't be your slave

I feel it navigating my veins through dehumanizing pain
My soul was stolen but never sold, by the dark trying to unfold
He will rise from within my core, to make his way and take control
Skies of hell reign over my world
Possession in its final phase
I have no hope to run and flee, the darkness grows in me
I am to vanquish my own, to be the beast the world will never know

And I will fall
I'll take you with me
You will die for tempting me
And if I crawl you will be the ground beneath
I won't be your…

I feel it navigate my veins, through dehumanizing pain

I can see through his eyes, the most sickening visions
With each part of me that dies, with every inner incision
He's coming alive and it's the time
To stage my fall and take him with me

Memories of a life, they flash back before me, as tears fall across my face
As I give this world one last embrace, for life to go on, we must be gone
Be gone, be gone, be gone, be gone

And I will fall
I'll take you with me
You will die for tempting me
And if I crawl you will be the ground beneath
I won't be your slave

I will fall
I'll take you with me
You will die for tempting me
And if I crawl you will be the ground beneath
I won't be your slave

I won't be your slave
I won't be your slave
I won't be your slave
Track Name: Ascension
Project the waves and cast the light
Open my eyes to the florescent spite
Shine the radiance to wash my spirit free
Glance at the mirror
Straight into me

Our presence will fade, but the echoes remain
The glory we've made shall not be in vein

Structures of light will break through our shadows
For what comes beyond today are heaven's meadows

My dementia's fading, my companion for all that's passed
The weight of the world finally off my chest
Hope in me is trailing, the walkways of Eden's grass
The sun will never rise, for light will never set

The northern cold
In this city of Gold
Where all answers are found
Where we all are heaven bound

The time that we've longed for is what we're here to explore
The journey to forever, for the final crossover

My dementia's fading, my companion for all that's passed
The weight of the world finally off my chest
Hope in me is trailing, the walkways of Eden's grass
The sun will never rise, for light will never set

My dementia's fading, my companion for all that's passed
The weight of the world finally off my chest
Hope in me is trailing, the walkways of Eden's grass
The sun will never rise, for light will never set
My dementia's fading, my companion for all that's passed
The weight of the world finally off my chest
Hope in me is trailing, the walkways of Eden's grass
The sun will never rise, for light will never set
Track Name: Rebirth
Eyes closed
Light reaching in
Sound of a new place

Comprehend the change
