Track Name: An Evil Insurmountable
writhing and twisting in an insomniac shell
paranoia enveloping, in terror i dwell
a bellow heard from a blackened corner
overflowing with an aura of evil insurmountable
atrocious, forbidding wickedness enshrouded in twilight
what horrors lurk beyond the door? what malevolence compels?

in the darkest shadows, in the stillest hush
trapped between worlds, encompassing us
looming through a veil of ghostly essence
feeding on fear and wreaking it's vengeance

an unwelcome visitor has entered our humble home
flooding the doors with unearthly transcendence, we are not alone
sucking the life from our withering veins
an invasion supernatural, we've surely met our bane

the gateway has been opened, diabolicalness has been unleashed
heralded by the banshee's ungodly shriek
echoes from the grave have reached our mortal ears
so nauseating the stench of one thousand vapid years
how unsettling the creaking of stairs off in the distance
the sound of footsteps resonate through this house of hell
my heart is pounding as my teeth grind into dust
my body shivers as frigidness engulfs my paling husk

these spirts yearn for possession of my fragile being, to ravage my psyche
enchanting of a demon's spell ensures unbounded mastery
i stare through hollow eyes, controlled by these entities
this ghastly fate is inescapable, forever shall i linger in this monstrosity

in the darkest shadows, in the stillest hush
trapped between worlds, encompassing us
looming through a veil of ghostly essence
feeding on fear and wreaking it's vengeance
an unwelcome visitor has entered our humble home
flooding the doors with unearthly transcendence, we are not alone
sucking the life from our withering veins
an invasion supernatural, we've surely met our bane

staring through hollow eyes, controlled by these entities
my fate is inescapable, forever shall i linger in this monstrosity
Track Name: Of Rot and Rapture
i can still taste the blood on my lips
so sweet, from your skeletal kiss
i can still sense you, i can still feel
just as if your tender heart was still surging with fear
your perfection adorned my perversion
in a sick titillating esteem
and in a repugnant display of elegant devotion
i purged your existence from this horrible earth
so dreadfully grim...

from the gashing of your throat, to the wrenching of your tongue
from the dismantling of your torso, to the vampiric draining of blood
it felt so pleasing to hold you, withering in my arms
such a ghastly display of affection, a morbid miscarriage of love

under a pale moonlit sky you rest...dreaming
i wonder what they will say when they find you wasting away, lying in repose
when the maggots are crawling and infesting your kiss
when your flesh is all but rotten away
i wonder will they see you as beautiful as did i
with your life washed away and your body in pieces

you serve to be a feast for the vermin, and such an appeasing meal you shall be
the infestation of your putrefying corpse shall be the final testimony of your wretched divinity

from the shadows i watched while you had nowhere left to run
from the darkness i crept when you had nowhere left to hide

so delicate, so beautiful, so wonderfully frightened you were
so eloquent, so marvelous, so lovely your screams to my ears
a disturbing exploration of a licentious seduction
i purged your existence from this horrible earth
Track Name: Usurper
from these streets i will fucking lurk
with this embrace that i fucking hold
pavement coated in entrails
scrummage through bodies so dead and so cold
lifeless and disdained

i have been sent here to invoke this creed
SCORN!
i am determined to bring forth this plague
SERVITUDE!
begriming and defiling mortal bindings of man
INFERNAL!
this shall be the end of everything to that i'll testify
UNDONE!

forever now knowing these lies
spit forth from the tongues of deceitful swine
i will strike fear in the hearts of man
and without a single regret
i will bring down your kingdom
your reign of terror will come to an end
you shall have no gods before me
on the throne of tyranny i am king!

someday you will know my name
and watch from the gutter as i reign
SOMEDAY YOU WILL KNOW MY NAME!

i am cloaked in terror, i shall conquer with might and sword
Track Name: Into Cadaverous Eyes
with a heart colder than ice
with a soul blacker than night
cursed i am to wander these streets alone
"DESOLATION!"
the wind is howling my name
it's cold breath creeping down my neck
forever reminding me that

never again shall my name be uttered by ungrateful tongues
another day, another place you would cower and kneel before me
staring into cadaverous eyes, shadowed by vulgarity
reflecting my sunken features, masked by total obscenity

LO!
lo and behold complete obliteration
a fate known best by you, my friend
your carcass serves as representation of a feeble race
crushed as insects
doomed from day one to inevitably meet its end

never again shall my name be uttered by ungrateful tongues
another day, another place you would cower and kneel before me
staring into cadaverous eyes, shadowed by vulgarity
reflecting my sunken features, masked by total obscenity

the wind howls my name, forever reminding me
Track Name: Manaconda
the sun is setting now, my eyes will open one last time.
i've lurked in the shadows for far too long.
tonight is my night and mine alone.
i will rise again and i will let this nocturnal hunger feed.

the neon signs and headlights illuminate my path over filth-covered sidewalks.
through crowded city streets, a modern sodom.
I FUCKING LOVE THIS TOWN!

a whore for every corner, a slut for every turn.
once daddy's little girl, now she's all fucking mine in this god forsaken alley.
this is my kind of party!

i wonder if daddy knows how much time his little princess spends on her knees.
from slumber parties to double penetration, that beautiful smile now stained with my seed
BITCH GET ON YOUR KNEES!

single mothers supporting their children, dancing on the pole.
shoving her tits into the face of a stranger, then using them to feed her young.

men and women of all ages throwing away their last penny.
some gambling with their lives, others with their credibility.
sobriety has been long forgotten.
all minds and bodies are withering away.

pour another shot.
cut out another line.
it's all good baby.
oh, blasphemous
what have i fucking become?

I'M DOWN ON KNEES

men and women of all ages throwing away their last penny
some gambling with their lives others with their credibility
sobriety has been long forgotten.
all minds and bodies are withering away.

for me there is nothing left in this world
returning to slumber, and i'll never wake up
i've done it all
fear will multiply and will dignify the need to spill my blood on the streets beneath me
my heart lies deep within this city
and though my body lies cold on the pavement, it's beating will never cease
nothing will save me now
Track Name: Extirpation
open your eyes
wake up, its time to seek forever
so dastardly and horrific
forget this, forget everything
come today, it's never mattered
we've reached the end our rope in this fucking cursed utopian dream

our thirst for the sun is unquenchable
our frigid bones forever fucking cold
restlessly we await our dooms
as our weakend bodies reduce to ruins
oh devastation, carry me away
oh sweet oblivion i'm calling out your name
cursed to dwell on this frozen earth
forever entombed, awaiting our dooms

this place is a fucking tomb
and the graves are already marked
devastation will carry us away,truely this shall be our last
to dance a cold embrace with death, oh how lovely it shall be
to dance a cold embrace with...

the earth is bound within the iron grip of frost
and it's growing tighter day by day (constricting)
our breath it hangs like smoke in the air
slowly wasting us away

this is a necropolis
a burial ground for the human race
centuries of industry and civilization diminished to waste
how can we save ourselves when our backs are against the wall?
and how can we reach the ground when there is nowhere left to fall?
mother, why have you abandoned your children?
and left us to die like the vermin we are

never again shall we ever see the sun rise
immersed in darkness, eclipsed
our extinction is imminent, so hopeless
humanity is beyond recall

loved ones betrayed with a judas kiss
just for rationing of food
hunger quenched by gorging on the living
as man devours man, man devouring man, man devouring...
we're plagued by disaster (plagued by disaster)
we'll be buried in time (we'll be buried in time)
the necrotization of all humanity
the total annihilation of mankind
Track Name: Cataclysmic Revelry
twisting it deeper.
this sword is one of malice and revenge.
come the morning sun, you will be writhing in putrescence.
of this life i've made a mockery, of these hands i have made a god.
i am not he who shall carry you home.
i am not he who turns frown into smile.
i am he who shall reign eternal.
i am he who shall destroy you all.

it hangs in front of me, it beckons me to the gallows
to join this parade of endless inhumanity.
nay, follow me deeper into the pit
and i shall show you how love was truely meant to be.
eager to commence this orgy of the wicked
lusting for carnal pleasure
tonight you will feel me in more ways than one

into a dark place i proceed
i'll cross the line one more time
invoking my darkest desires
washing away the flesh from the bone
you've brought this plague upon yourselves
eternally trapped within it's jaws
i shall bring you to your knees
this suffering shall never cease

oh, how blissful this vile display of might
devastation spreading faster and farther out of sight
quenching my bloodlust of apocalyptic proportion
i am the damned, i hunger for these crazy fucking nights
crushing the prophecy
i am abomination and i am profanity incarnate

relentlessly ripping through every shred of flesh in my path
savage killing spree
shrouded in misery, their screams shall not be heard
this is a revolution, revolting in a frenzy of psychotic rage
hypocrites beware! this is the dawn of a new age

revolt!

into a dark place i proceed
i'll cross the line one more time
invoking my darkest desires
washing away the flesh from the bone
you've brought this plague upon yourselves
eternally trapped within it's jaws
i shall bring you to your knees
this suffering shall never cease

relentlessly ripping through every shred of flesh in my path
savage killing spree
shrouded in misery, their screams shall not be heard
this is a revolution, revolting in a frenzy of psychotic rage
hypocrites beware! this is the dawn of a new age
Track Name: The Nameless Eternal
ancient ones, uncalled by name
destroyers risen to slay
lords of death, gods of plague
fearless in battle...we ravage
with iron teeth, with sharpened claws
with eyes of death we storm!
enraged with evil motion
wreakers of pain, sculpting our throne

crushing the weak, they lie frail, motionless in our path
in our wake those who fear shall meet their untimely end
leave none spared but servants and slaves
drunk of blood, in your misery we shall dance

a toast of infinite might to this, our immortality
may all bow to us, the dark lords of inhumanity
bring forth the wenches and the whores, you shall swallow the slime!
lay with us in carnality, our wretched seeds shall be sown!

we are the lost ones from a time before time
we are the ghouls who haunt the streets the wanderers of night
we are the burning pain that presses on the backs of man
the children of the underworld, unknown in heaven or on earth

bow to us!
kneel before our wretched throne in worship
present to us
this offering most foul
prepare the sacrifice!
so we may feast upon sweet virgin flesh
so glorious!
in all of it's sickening splendor
this is the covenant!
scream the incantation ia! ia!
i summon they
who sleepeth dead
open the gate!
like a flood they shall pass
fulfill the prophecy
and raise the dead to devour the living

we have lied in wait for so very long, hidden away, forgotten
we have lied in wait for so very long, crouching for the sacrifice

our jaws are opened wide to gorge upon your sweet flesh
we shall tear your limbs from your sides your eyes from your skull
this is the end of everything, your day of judgement has come
our wrath descended upon you, the fallen shall rise in a river of blood

[ we are revelry, we are woe
we are eternal, so it shall be known ] *
we are putrescent, we are blithe
we are the day, we are the night

we are before all things
[ * ]
