Track Name: SundoggodnuS
The urge to breed escaping
The urge to flee provoking daily
The line to be crossed, count as a loss 
I feel I may be breaking
Feel the levee breaking

The energy is lost with this exhaling
The energy the cost i stumble waning 
The mind is embossed 
Driven to caustic daily basting
I feel I may be breaking
I feel the nerves vibrating x4

Cut me ..splitting, let the years of discontentment breathe. Let it be.
Dangling loss,  mental flaws, let filth crawl on out,  let filth crawl on out 
Back breaker, temptress lingers,  existential entropy
Breath taker, Unwell, swollen ailment, I bow before thee.       

They want what is real, but their not realists
They all want to kill, but their not killers
They all want to feel, but they won’t feel this
They all want to kill, because their all killers

Invoke the one, who claims a master plan
Ignore the sun, the thing that birthed your chance  

With the dusk comes the dawn, always undeserving. x2
Why? The planted bulbs of apathy?
Why? Perennial no dormancy?
Who? can stop this rule of lethargy? 
Why? should i care at all?

Young grueling spiritual energy, all ends with anger blackening
Track Name: Nocturnus Infernus
Absence of light, entwined in grime
Sanity defiled
Wheezing, air denied, black bronchi
Entrenched now in ire
The godforsaken flames ignite
Adrenal fluid fills the mind
Devoid of holy grace, divine
Throes of death personified X2

(Sulfuric fumes ingest, invokes the groans of regret. Blistering beams of light blanket the dermis fried)

Cretins engulfed in volcanic pageantry     
Worthy resolve for a life of tyranny.

Embers cascade down, snow falling sultrily , come to rest without a sound
Chaos holds the clout, in unbridled potency, pulls the reigns wrecking the mouth
Tears boil on the ground, in unbridled poetry, thoughts of bliss forever drowned
Creatures emerge from pores.  gang of repugnancy, ripping from the hoards

That old feeling of purity, long forgotten
That persistence of malice, joy gone rotten
Swim through the marrow of fleshes uncertainty
The wish to one day be free from the burden of darkness X4

Infecting minds in the dead of night
Tormented slumber holds you tight
Quenching of thirsts in this carnal delight
Tormented Slumber holds you tight

The void is beckoning
The void is beckoning
Your day of reckoning
The void is beckoning
Track Name: Macrocosm
Simmer the thought of a species healed, until it congeals
Shovel it down and swallow humility.
No changing the fate of humanity, sealed. Face what is real
Burying pride, swallowing dignity.

Is there a place where serenity lives?
Gave all I can give
Carried around the weight of a broken crib
Is there a trace of compassion concealed?
Albeit repealed?
Meld with crowd, embrace the audacity

Fruit of thy womb, I inform of regret
There isn’t much left
Man came, source drained
Land that was roamed is now stripped of its gifts
We needed the best
Now inherit the Misery

Nature controlled, and no longer selects
Compassions reject
Man made, man paid
Respected are those who now praise insolence
Conditions reflect
Now inherit the misery 

Born of the macrocosm of embellished descent
Death from the toxic cloud spun from lack of restrain

Burn it
Instant gratification over long term sustainment
Bury it
Consume it
Momentary pleasure above all care for a future
Inhale it

Inherit my misery
Track Name: Unwilling
Discretion now replaced
Lost along the way
Never coming home
We incapacitate
Self commiserate
Never coming home.
Revealed behind the smoke screen
Heavy heart delusory
