Dust 03:33
Make-believe world of pretense and lies Blind too long to open your eyes Purged of the image you masquerade The false society unmade In the true world the weak are crushed The meek shall inherit the dust Inherit the dust Current of conformity Swirls about your knees Undertow drags you down Weakness forces you to drown Your cowardly blood turns to rust The meek shall inherit the dust Inherit the dust Crumbling walls of your sheltered life Seal you in your grave Never thought it’d be like this on the outside Or that you’d need to be saved Dust eclipses the sun Can no longer hide your face What you wished to rule Rules now in your place Inherit the dust

Feral (free) 07:09
I walk the razor’s edge Rinsed by the midnight Trial by fire Ancient rite Anointed in blood Baptized in flame Feed on my tears Stronger I became Hate you’ve fed me Cleansing rain Washed impurity away In my pain Ritual purification Myself the sacrifice White-hot crucible Burns away my past Anointed in blood Baptized in flame Feed on my tears Stronger I became Hate you’ve fed me Cleansing rain Washed impurity away In my pain Voices in the darkness call Spirits walk with me Teach me to become The weapon I must be Whispering their secret Reforming of the self Molding of this mortal coil Wear the shape of wolf One thousand years I shall run Tear through metal, flesh, and bone The forest my citadel The night my home To cast down the crimson priests Burn the heart of oak To slaughter the brothers Of the red cloak No one will hear their cries They guide my fangs to their soft throats Rip out the tongue of lies Blood drenches the scarlet robes Suck the marrow from the bones Feed on the gore Its scent fills my nostrils Leaves me hungry for more

Rivers of fetid decay—endless Vermin devour the festering flesh Streams of filth ever-flowing Seeds of disease they’re sowing Host of the unclean Spewing its venom From the open sores oozing pus Font of putrescence Infested bodies now their hives Click of the beetles drowns your cries Enslaved by the faceless hate-kings Caressed by the tendriled slimy green Host of the unclean Spewing its venom From the broken scab oozing pus Font of putrescence Gorge yourself on the poisons Its slime drips from your smile Clings to your teeth Rancid rotting corpse—city

In vast gulfs of unconquered space Embraced by mother night’s Primordial cosmic womb In these voids the elder gods sleep Licking their wounds Hiding between realities Beyond Atlantis’ gate Beneath the waves Beyond the stars Awaken Siphoning power from the stars Beyond all mortal sight To resume past atrocities barely imagined At the dawn of consciousness Corrupt power worshipped for aeons Ancient cults hope to revive From infernal depths Awaken the vanquished horde To channel immortal energies Swallowed by the earth Covered by the sea Folly of pride

Rage 03:39
Destructive intention Psychotic fruition No question to ponder Defend your honor Anger explodes inside Summon the rage I hide Blood burns beneath the skin Unleash the beast within I can feel the rage within me You will taste my bitter agony Cannot stop the hate inside me I know my rage consumes me Are you a man or a worm? What is the lesson you learned? Vengeance the purpose Rise to the surface Lick my wounds with razor steel Evoke the wrath I feel Feel the bars of your cage When will you rage? I can feel the rage within me You will taste my bitter agony Cannot stop the hate inside me I know my rage consumes me I am all alone Within this cell—my mind Darkness—my home Fury makes me blind Vengeance the purpose Rise to the surface Feel the bars of your cage When will you rage?

Molding earth is torn asunder Gravestones crack, roar like thunder Deserters of the shattered tomb Rise again to seal your doom Mindless army Rising, kills you Into your corpse Rotting teeth chew No more within the earth to rot Carry out enchanter’s plot Lies which animate remains Corrode also the living brains Decayed flesh Wormy brains Spell-bound minds Sense no pain Lies which animate remains Corrode also the living brains Propagandists hypnotize Slippery words blind your eyes

Rex Mortis 04:16
Arise from the sepulcher / Emerge from the lair Unholy horror / takes wing on the night air Thirst and yearning / Raging like flood Desire so burning / hunger for blood They hunt in shadow Through eons unknown Stalkers in the night They walk alone King of death Pierce the flesh Bleed to kill Feed the will Nosferatu—Rex Mortis King of death Pierce the flesh Bleed to kill Feed the will Descendant of shadow / Daemonic angels Darkness they know / Bellies full of hell Fangs sink down in / Mortal sangaree Now to drown in / Crimson ecstasy They hunt in shadow Through eons unknown Stalkers in the night They walk alone

Revolt 04:24
Humanity corrodes Parasite denied Blinded with vice And misplaced pride Ebon dawn casting rays of black upon the earth Humanity corrodes Strength of one million voices summoning the dark Remake the flesh New order of chaos Vengeance we seek Primal law protected Weed out the weak Humanity corrodes Parasite denied Blinded with vice And misplaced pride Seeking dominion raining vitriol from the skies Humanity corrodes You cannot engulf the hate that burns within my eyes Remake the flesh Shifting shapes Remake the flesh In the image of rage Bringer of death Seeking dominion raining vitriol from the skies Humanity corrodes You cannot engulf the hate that burns within my eyes Remake the flesh

Twilight 07:05
The bleeding sun drips downward Drenching the dust of hollow screams Feel my senses reborn as I fall Into this world of dreams Twisting and turning and fading away Endless haze / Ethereal maze I see, I hear, I touch the surreal Arcane secret now revealed Swirling mist shrinks and swells Break away from my shell Through countless worlds unseen I travel on in timeless trance In realms of truth and madness Shadows flow in ageless dance Flying and drifting in twilight’s abyss Endless haze / Ethereal maze I see, I hear, I touch the surreal Arcane secret now revealed Swirling mist shrinks and swells Break away from my shell
