2. APOCALYPSE UNSEALED

Modern world, inclined to evil
Architect of its obliteration
Humanity's next upheaval
Terminal process of eradication

The earth turned to a silent corpses field
Ancient scriptures revealed
Apocalypse unsealed

In remembrance of the noble past
Of former glories dying fast
Propose a toast to the coming end
A time that most men apprehend

The earth turned to a silent corpses field
Ancient scriptures revealed
Apocalypse unsealed

The beast enthroned
Crowned as king of the world
His infernal majesty
With blackened winds unfurled

The unholy trinity
Of famine, plague and war
Shall ravage the lands
So that nothing grows any more

See the splendour of civilizations
The great works of the sovereign nations
Burnt in an instant, reduced to ashes
Final agony of the suffocating masses

The earth turned to a silent corpses field
Ancient scriptures revealed
Apocalypse unsealed.


3. LIKE A COILED SERPENT

It will only mean the end
For those who care
Unable to see beyond
The forced-fed values they share

Deluded and led astray
Destination : disarray

Modern world crisis
Days of mass psychosis

Grey eminences, conspiring to divide us
False enlightenments, conceived to misguide us
Traditions mocked, in favour of progress
Yet all that improves is our declining process

An age of sin and corruption
Under the serpent's reign
The light bearer rises
Blinding the eyes of the mundane

Deluded and led astray
Destination : disarray

Mordern world crisis
Days of mass psychosis.


4. BROADSWORDS OF THE MOST HIGH

A scorching sun above
And the burning sands beneath
Among the winds swept dunes
The wilderness of the desert heath
In this barren landscape
A child was born, destined to reign
A great conqueror, soon to rise
With many slaughtered in his name

At forty years of age
He was visited one night
By a heavenly messenger
In the form of an angel of light

In a surreal, dreamlike scene
The Angel was reciting
Words to "free" all man from sin

Unearthly apparition no other eyes have seen

A God of love who incites war
The days of mercy are no more

By the star and the crescent moon
Impious souls shall meet their doom

Surrender and converted or be killed
Let the blood of the profane be spilled

By the star and the crescent moon
Impious souls shall meet their doom

Exalted warriors with a promise of paradise
Eager martyrs, misled and blinded by lies

Broadswords of the most high
The infidels shall pitilessly die

By the star of the crescent moon
Impious souls shall meet their doom

Surrender and convert or be killed
Let the blood of the profane be spilled.


5. NO DELIVERANCE

And legend has it. . .
The seed was sown in Egypt
With a newborn child
Found beside the Nile
Seven plagues unleashed
Idolatry crushed and banished

Rejoice! So called God's chosen people
Since the new prophet has risen
To free all slaves from the chains of evil
Only to cast them in another prison

No deliverance
From the shackles of tyranny
No deliverance
The flock lives on in agony

Behold! As the holds. . .
The tablets of the law
The sacred commandments
One must obey in awe

Let the tribes be gathered
The coming of a new dawn is at hand
Let the seas be parted
Marching onwards to the promised land

To establish at last, their own nation
Based on a faith of cowardice and deceit
Before the temple is led to destruction
Before the Hebrews suffer a bitter defeat.


6. FALLACY IN PIECES

The darkened skies fell upon you
Like a black veil before your eyes
On bended knees, asking God why?
A deafening silence answers your cries

Your prayers amount to nothing
No miracles that your words can bring
What is called faith is an illusion
A mirage seen through the confusion

Worms of the divine - Worms of lies
Multiplying parasites - Swarms of flies

Envenomed tongues of the prophets
Teaching filth ridden doctrines
Instilling terror into the feeble minds
Fear of God, fear of death
Fear of life itself

Worms!

Burn this fallacy
Inherent to all religion
Follow your instincts
End this lethal contagion

Worms of the divine - Worms of lies

Break the sacred symbols
Break all fears into pieces
The harsh visions of reality
Are all there is to see.


7. THE FOUNDATION STONE

One vision appeared in dreams
Of a world which is not as it seems
Supposedly part of a geater design
Solely the believer can see the sign

No voice speaking from the heavens
Merely the product of hallucinations
No embodied spirit of the Almighty
Revealed to the face of humanity

Abraham, damned be thee!
As all the nations on earth
Religious cult of fallacy
The birth of an enduring curse

The patriarch's only son
Laid upon the sacrificial altar
A sharp dagger held high
In blind devotion to this Creator

Infanticide servant of God
Willing to slay his flesh and blood

Here lie the roots of all fanaticism
From these dark ages to our present day
Through repeated acts of barbarism
A long trail of corpses has paved the way.


8. THE HAND THAT SHAPES FATE

Atop the menacing tower
High above the city lights
I observe insect-like human
From well concealed heights

A sentinel in ambush
Postured as a bird of prey
Hidden, silently watching
The victims i will slay

I'm the hand that shapes fate
I control the death rate
I'm the hand that shapes fate
The Reaper's associate

Shot down like disease cattle
One bullet - one splattered skull

The restless crowd
My moving target
As bodies drop dead
I feel no regret
Random killing spree
Laugh as they scatter and flee

Random killing spree

I'm the hand that shapes fate
I control the death rate
I'm the hand that shapes fate
The Reaper's associate.


9. JEHOVAH'S PROGENY

Son of man
Deceiver of hearts ans souls
The skin redeemer
Imposture is what he extols

Scourged prophet of sorrows
Indulging in weakness
Self proclaimed messiah
I deny his uniqueness

Begotten son, anointed one
Thy kingdom is yet to come

He who preached the whole world
To turn the other cheek
And changed the lambs of God
Into slaughtered meek

Scourged prophet of sorrows
Indulging in weakness
Self proclaimed messiah
I deny his uniqueness

A miracle maker, yet spat at and vilified
On the path to Golgotha where he was crucified
God make flesh, so prone to mortal death
No resurrection, he died with his last breath

The saviour who couldn't save himself
A plaster figurinestanding on a shelf.
