Track Name: Ki
Clasped hands, broken man
Time passes with with no response
No answers at hand
Black in the night, he prays for the last time
He weeps in humility at the sight
His god is here, watching, waiting
-
Arms raised, eyes gaped
Holy ones stand upon him
Cover him with the lights shapes that he’s never seen
Sounds of machinery, a dull creak
We’re making history
Just believe we’ll set you free
-
Figures surrounding, standing tall
Always waiting, they’re watching us all
Track Name: Salvation
These beckoning words, have I heard them right?
Should l pay for my sins by taking a life?
I can almost savor the brilliant light
There’s not much time so I best get started tonight
-
Monuments of life, I will soon find
When salvation comes, I will be the one

In the dead of the night I can find what I need to make this sacrifice
-
I slowly enter the room where they sleep
Not a sound I can make, they are mine for the taking
I hesitate as I hear footsteps creep up from behind
-
There she is at the doorway frozen, staring wide-eyed at the horror looming
Mother tries to scream but she can’t say a thing; my god is with me
Yes this is what it looks like… just turn your head, it’s for the best
-
These beckoning words, I heard them right
Paid for my sins by taking a life
I can almost savor the brilliant light
There is not much time so I make the sacrifice
-
Monolithic hand, take this offering and invocation
I’ve killed for you, just make this suffering a buried memory
-
Come while they still sleep
Now, bathed in light, you have arrived
Begin to trade my eyes for those that only see perfection
Track Name: Sacrifice
We will rise, we will rise
By the light of the angels, we will rise
By the light, we will rise to the stars
-
One by one, surrounded by flames
Lifted to the sky, bathed in bright blue beams
Naked minds afraid, destined to stay
Become filleted, the corpse displayed
-
(They will rise)
Cries echo, but only for a moment
(They will rise)
Beyond heaven’s gate, screams cannot be heard
-
Bring them home
-
They will rise to the stars
They will rise by the light of the sky
-
In the night, we will rise to the stars
We will rise, we all rise
Track Name: Deconstruction (ft. Andrew Patterson)
Servant of man, fall into our hands
With you, we’re all but done
Yet you believe you are the fortunate one
-
The souls of your dead will haunt your home
Flesh and mind scarred equally deep
They’ll never know where they roam
Your children stolen as they sleep
(Servant of man, fall into our hands)
The souls of your dead will haunt your home
Flesh and mind scarred equally deep
They’ll never know where they roam
Your children stolen as they sleep
-
Servant of man, fall into our hands
With you, we’re all but done
Yet you believe you are the fortunate one
Fall into our hands
With you, the will is done
-
Become the wolf, abduct the lamb
Deliver the code to creation of man
Enter the room where innocence lies
Preserve their slumber, silence their cries
Kneel before me with tears in your eyes
Feed us, appease us
Feed us, appease us
Track Name: Monolith
Your blinded eyes can’t see, my creation
Your shattered mind can’t dream; a painful revelation
Your punctured lungs can’t scream
Engineered for me: a biological machine
-
Burn the way for my creation
Built by your hands, my commands echo all that’s been conceived
(Burn away, you’ll burn away)
Burn the way for my creation
Death is weakness
Clench your fists and suffer
Burn away
-
Blood-built temples, monuments to the divine
Misconceptions ill-perceived
Stars reassembled, you are slaves by my design
All affliction unrelieved
-
Feed on the feeble disposition of man
We create the holy intervention
Seeds of infinity, our catastrophic plan
Free now to issue your conviction
(Now your mind will tremble)
Feed on the feeble disposition of man
We create the holy intervention
Feed on the holy intervention
Track Name: Shatter the Earth
Rebellion is inspiration
Peace achieved by decimation
Naked minds afraid, destined to decay
Become filleted, the corpse displayed
-
Our army is monumental
We lie awake, no answers from heaven
You will decay
-
Naked minds afraid
Nothing lights the way
-
Rebellion is inspiration
Peace achieved by decimation
Become filleted, your corpse displayed
-
To cleanse the wound of filth
Shatter the earth
To purge the world
Shatter the earth
To cleanse the wound of filth
Shatter the earth
To purge the world of this hell
Shatter the earth
-
Bodies disappear, panic floods the streets
A life left in fear, your children stolen as they sleep
-
Scrape away the infection (planetary disease)
You wither away, fucking helpless pests
Insignificant piss, I will not hear your pleas
You will decay
-
Now your mind will tremble
Memories left behind, stars reassembled
Slaves by my design
