Track Name: Eyes of the Slain
Eyes Of The Slain

Now the stage is set, and the price is life
No turning back what's set in motion
Execution's veil
Will wait no longer
While some may resist, calculated risk
Eliminate threat of exposure
Fabricate the tale
And call it honor

Now, tell me how, and what I'm supposed to believe
Fight. Die.

"Total annihilation"

Silence the lie, that's laid upon you
Eyes of the slain, remain, a lethal dose of truth

Disguised and broken down, the what, where, the how
Details deemed inconsequential
Raze a candidate
A soul that's wandered
None will sympathize, anger realized
The call for blood will be substantial
For the fallen crown
The cry is "onward"

Now, tell me how, i am supposed to be free
Fuck. You.

"Chaos unites a nation"

Silence the lie, that's laid upon you
Eyes of the slain, remain, a lethal dose of truth

Corruption, greed, and tyranny crush a wave of innocents
Construct and bleed an enemy to guarantee imminence

"Clandestine intimidation"

Silence the lie, that's laid upon you
Eyes of the slain, remain, a lethal dose of truth
Track Name: Fragment of a Dream
Fragment Of A Dream

Project all that you want to be
Manipulate and frame
Protect your insecurity
Exaggerate the claim
Misleading mediocrity
Assimilate to gain
A mask veiled in humility
Facilitate the blame

Agonizing
Fantasizing
Tranquilizing
Grandiose delusions magnify

HUMAN nature is to kill
NEW WORLD disturbing of the beast
ORDER chaos
Reality is hardly what it seems
HUMAN nature is to will
NEW WORLD survive in the extreme
ORDER chaos
Belief is just a fragment of...

Reflection of apostasy
Abandon for your gain
Neglect for those who truly see
False modesty engage
Collapse when all the perfect schemes
Reveal a masquerade
Embrace your own pathology
Failure to ascertain

Realizing
Sacrificing
Sterilizing
Power and the glory of the blind

HUMAN nature is to kill
NEW WORLD disturbing of the beast
ORDER chaos
Reality is hardly what it seems
HUMAN nature is to will
NEW WORLD survive in the extreme
ORDER chaos
Belief is just a fragment of a dream

Once inside
The host will die

Mechanizing
Weaponizing
Terrorizing
Winning hearts and minds

HUMAN nature is to kill
NEW WORLD disturbing of the beast
ORDER chaos
Reality is hardly what it seems
HUMAN nature is to will
NEW WORLD survive in the extreme
ORDER chaos
Belief is just a fragment of a dream
Track Name: Poisoned Mind
Poisoned Mind

Tapped, in the mind
Erasing hope and thought
Terrorize
A web fueling social disease

Fear, is the fuel
Unknown, hate and desire
Chaos, disorder
Leaving you on your knees

Those who supply, demand
That unity divides

Attack the world, of the impure, from the inside
Bring it back to life, to watch it die, the Poisoned Mind

Infect, by design
A system torn apart
The perfect crime
Platformed for all to see

Those who would die, are sent
By those who cast aside

Attack the world, of the impure, from the inside
Bring it back to life, to watch it die, the Poisoned Mind

Spread the disease, bury the cure
Destroy the 'state' of mind
No containment, no more life
Incriminate, annihilate
Disinformation thrives
All hidden, in plain sight

Terror in the mind

Break out of darkness, choose to face the light
Eliminating demons, in the mind
Draw out from wounds, what would otherwise consume
Release the rage, regain control, relentlessly pursue

Dark, bleeds the light
Resistance breeds the cause
Demonize
Indoctrinate, no escape

Attack the world, of the impure, from the inside
Bring it back to life, to watch it die, the Poisoned Mind

Poison, Poisoned Mind
Track Name: Poverty of Flesh
Poverty Of Flesh

A sentence with no reprieve
Masked in deficiency
Rate of morbidity

The pay off from industry
Impending fatality
Libelous litany

Lies that bind, betray and prey on mankind

The perfect storm of treachery, bedlam, and infamy
Break down, society's malignancy, is poverty...
The perfect storm of treachery, bedlam, and infamy
Break down, society's malignancy, is poverty of flesh

Serial atrophy
Controlled through calamity
An informal fallacy

Raid and de-civilize
Truth can be synthesized
When pain is idealized

Lies that bind, betray and prey on mankind

The perfect storm of treachery, bedlam, and infamy
Break down, society's malignancy, is poverty...
The perfect storm of treachery, bedlam, and infamy
Break down, society's malignancy, is poverty of flesh

Way of life, degenerates
Accelerate extremity, to profiteer
Faith resigned, exterminate
Absolute autocracy, instrumental apathy

Time grows cold, and must unfold
Sarcopenia, death extolled

Designed to disintegrate
Temporary remedy to domineer
Coincide, what kills, creates
Merciless contingency, terminal idolatry

Time grows cold, and must unfold
Sarcopenia, death extolled
Track Name: Lights Out
Lights Out

Lights. Out.

It's in the darkest times
We reveal who we are
Those that can endure
And live beyond the scar

Scars are but a darkness on the soul
Revelation of might, silent control

Alone we walk, the road is dark
Unknown into the night, forsaken by the light

Reject, renounced of guilt
Purify those in the wake
(Hidden) Behind walls of peace
Are corridors of hate

Hate will blind and all of hell will rise
Masking the insane, through blood shrilled cries
Our fate's demise

Alone we walk, the road is dark
Unknown into the night, forsaken by the light

All that's required for life in the fire,
eternal damnation and fall, is the absence of light
Drive out the light through a spirit of darkness,
And BURN with desire to engage in the rite

Active minds will make for sacrifice
Silence will maintain, and satisfy
Track Name: In Living Decay
In Living Decay

Erase

Scorch the earth with fire
Paralyze with pain
Behold the foul winds of war
Are cold, human remains

Experiment (in) destruction
Disguise it all as peace
Disruption of the Complex
Humanity erased

Spoils of war
To the victor go untraced

Life exists, in living decay
Confine and blitz, resistance laid to waste

Race toward extinction
Defense that escalates
Incapable distinction
Man made, or fate

Self realization
Is the path to peace
Weaponized subjugation
Protection of the beast

Spoils of war
To the victor go untraced

Life exists, in living decay
Confine and blitz, resistance laid to waste

Affliction of life, there is no escape
Being and time, mortality embraced
Logic deserted, a duel at the gates
Conflict asserted, meltdown incinerate

Life exists, in living decay
Confine and blitz, resistance laid to waste

Erase

Life exists, in living decay
Confine and blitz, resistance laid to waste
Track Name: Ignitor
Ignitor

Explosive, corrosive
Illusive, psychosis
Abused and ferocious
A force that cannot be explained

Anxious, neuroses
Obsessive, compulsive
Sinister repulsion
Emotion that can't be contained

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
A manifesto misaligned

Over time, truth will preside
With the will to remain, vilified

Corrupted, disrupted
Progress interrupted
All power, no justice
A life not allowed to sustain

A puppet, mistrusted
The spirit, combusted
Mislead and instructed
Irreparably smear and campaign

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
A manifesto misaligned

Over time, truth will preside
With the will to remain, vilified

Cognizant dominance
Afraid of no consequence
Affluent prominence
Waging a war from within

Legitimate insolence
Articulate dissonance
Vigilance is imminent
Allegiance or imprisonment

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
A manifesto misaligned

Over time, truth will preside
With the will to remain, vilified
I am Ignitor, the blood in the wire
Track Name: Survivalist
Survivalist

One shot that can't be missed
To change the world, a catalyst
Must be applied
Traitors in the midst
Age of the survivalist
Turn of the tide

Time sees all endings
Never relenting

And so it's come to this
As the days cease to exist
Life in decline
Stare at the abyss
Count down the days yet still insist
There's always time

Hunting the mourning
Conspire to live free or die

The vow ends now
We stand, revolution's rite
Called away from here
Dissident evolution
Salvation lies
Tear down what you fear

Time sees all endings
Conspire to live free or die

Time sees
Time bleeds
Time deems
Nothing will survive

Haunted eyes have seen life's ruin
Haunted lives have bled life's fluid
Haunted minds have hearts polluted
Nothing will survive

The vow ends now
We stand, revolution's rite
Called away from here
Dissident evolution
Salvation lies
Tear down what you fear

Tear down what you fear
