Track Name: Into Turmoil
scorched by the mental flames
and envy's deed conceals my sight
slowly condemned spirits fall
only a shadow of reality to me

those flames disintegrate my soul
reaching into an abyss indiscribe-able
so profound its' depths that it's forsaken
through unknown steps, mental portals feed
inscribing my fate incomplete

within this fate i find this voice
yearning for truth unpassed
yet the void remains eternal
expanding by the strife i endure

everything that is unsaid
poison to all souls unborn
past can't change anything
trials unspoken

then i will rejoice my nemesis
to the bitter grave this spirit
bound by elemental law
my body, my soul is their nourishment

so long this exiled being
bear the burden of all sins
let the storm of apathy
reach distant minds, ignorance so appealing

path to a higher learning
your moral virtues uphold nothing
so long this exiled being
bear the burden of all sins

escaping the catalyst
divider of superstition

praised are the guardians of time
essence possessed within boundless horizons

escaping the catalyst
divider of superstition

interceptors are watching
behind cosmic evaluations
derived from greed
driven by de-evolution
Track Name: Destined To Fall

all the people you once called friends
where the things built upon regrets
charms, brought to you by
potent internal
bear eternal

ejected through de-evolution
souls involve in reality
minds are open
yet the thoughts are strictly purchased

self denial
the goals we both shared is not counting anymore
this passion makes me out of breath
solitude, i shout my lungs out

set myself awakened to them all
lack of your pleasure is no longer my burden

i sweat on setting my time back
i wear myself out
shunned, not believing this sentence
all conceit crushed by your sight
seemingly joyous crowds laughing

this thread of hope at long last
dissolute and malicious being summoned
tainted thoughts of withdrawal
sick of your secure existence

all the people you once called friends
where the gestures died immediately
pieces, scavenged and gathered
sown enmity, shed despair

bordering on lunacy i am incarcerated
miscalculated aggression takes over now
egos lie parallel, repelling each other
at the end of my rope i live on
gotta find out the glitch in me

as i run for this crash course
that sets me aside and i never belong
my mind is oblivious, rejecting
pathways to compassion yield
only self awareness yet triumphs

friendship can't fully prevail
friendships destined to fall
Track Name: What The Future Holds

tribulations set forth by the law of babylon
with the hour of judgement drawing nearer

let my brothers embrace death as salvation
let the blood of achilles spawn vengeance
for their arrogance is the price of my dignity
so cleanse my spirit of its guilt infested woe

sweeping its debris ashore, carry eroded dreams
we left behind love to carry on hating, mourning
plagues rage through sceptic circles
unleashing jealousy, incomprehensible arrogance

overcome the dissapointment, behold the serpent's tongue
temptation of men devouring what the future holds

by the minute of our humanity caves
into captivity, resentment blurred my sight and efforts, belief structures
like shores abide, anticipating, always weeping tranquillity
watch the antagonist ever hopeful
abstinence suppressed

weeping my elegy upon the manifestation of wealth
monuments of ordinance attends souls
weeping my elegy upon the manifestation of wealth

disgraced by my own kin i strive for hope
dethroned are the symbols of tradition

i've become a vessel of absolution
Track Name: Reason Dismay

treachery splits the earth by lightning
fury unleashed by the old entity
a single man's craft of war concealed
at sea so distressed by resent his fed

imaginations are quelled into submission
a broken mast pegged down onto existence
castaway, mistook chances upon drastic means
cursed by his vision and ambition

let those stories be praised away
and acknowledged let my tribute be
technology conceals the truth
to the point of no return

voices are too repetitive now
spitting vulgar remarks to me
the echoes evolved static
drowning, drowning tenfold with contempt

don't sustain the advice
reject beyond the boundry
forever shelter thought
abstract utilation, suicide

artificial milkfed intelligence
sways in belligerence, dismay
our neglected patterns cross
so long this misery confined

i'm a commodity, nothing but a forebearer
clogged into the sinkhole of creation
winter upon my selfish existence, forcefed
sufferance brought within neurotic self
pain so earthly has striken through divine hearts

obstructs men of virtue, devastates causality
logic of an ancient time reigns with no shame
my cerebral tempest ever so turbulant

the age of the messiah shadowing
over the trampled notions of enlightening

with strife there's so much to be gained
without the lore, i can never be brave

if truth is only a matter of heart
reason, the living days are only a test
