1. Awakening

{Instrumental}

2. Hand Of The Divine

When I saw the change in their eyes
Witnessed distortion of features
I sensed the evil that lives inside
I will act as his hand
Act as his instrument

I won't be burdened by their smiles
And I won't be swayed by their cries
If my god demands it, I shall oblige
Now my purpose defined
Bring them back to the light again

Blood awakens the carnal desires
Burdened by guilt
Aroused by the screams of the child
Wash the death from our hands
Copulation commence
The urges that I can't reconcile

My god
I have proven my faith in my war


3. Like The Weeds In The Field

I will be cast out like the son of dawn
My existence profane in the eyes of God
I will exalt my throne high above my fathers
And I will reach it on my own

I am the enemy
I am deceit and villainy
I've walked the burning stone
From heavens to the earth
Made crooked stray the paths to the Lord

Spread like the weeds in the field
Deceiver standing at His right hand
Spread like the weeds in the field
Deceiver standing at His right hand

I am the enemy
I am deceit and villainy
I've walked the burning stone
From heavens to the earth
Made crooked stray the paths to the Lord

Become the sons of perdition
Become the daughters of lies
Become the sons of perdition
Become the daughters of lies

Opposing all that it called God

Opposing all that it called God

Spread like the weeds in the field
Deceiver standing at His right
Spread like the weeds in the field
Deceiver standing at His right hand

I am the enemy
I am deceit and villainy
I've walked the burning stone
From heavens to the earth
Made crooked stray the paths to the Lord

Become the sons of perdition
Become the daughters of lies
Become the sons of perdition
Become the daughters of lies


4. The Ascent And Decline

Dissent
Curse the light, let the darkness take hold
Condemned
Now the faithful will know that prayers go unanswered

The ascent becomes the decline
Corrupting the soundest of minds
Leaving the weakest to die
Forgone the path of salvation

You've carried their crosses
Bow to their God
The burden becomes ours
Bow to their God

Repent
Lest we burn as the embers below
Resist
Rain the fires from heaven
Reap what you've sewn

The blasphemous praise the divine
The dawning of human decline
Its rapture will leave us behind
To stray the path of salvation

You've carried their crosses
Bow to their God
The burden becomes ours
Bow to their God

These are the sounds of attrition
The dawning of human decline
These are the sounds of attrition
Its rapture will leave us behind
Its rapture will leave us behind

Condemned
Its rapture will leave us behind
Condemned
Its rapture will leave us behind
Condemned
Its rapture will leave us behind

Its rapture will leave us behind
Its rapture will leave us behind
Its rapture will leave us behind
Its rapture will leave us


5. The Submissive

Take the flesh on your tongue
Fellate the divine
What is man but the image of God
Created for service

Crawl - On bended knees in submission
Atone - Speak his name as you take him inside

I will be still
Be still and know that he is
Be still and know that he is God

And blessed are the young
The feeble of mind
What is God in the eyes of a child
A tool for obedience

Crawl - On bended knees in submission
Atone - Speak his name as you take him inside

I will be still
Be still and know that he is God

Know that he is God
Know that he is

Be filled with the spirit
Second coming of Christ
Bless the meek and submissive
And precious in his sight

Crawl - On bended knees in submission
Atone - Speak his name as you take him inside

I will be still
Be still and know that he is God

Know that he is God
Know that he is God
Know that he is God
Be still and know that he is


6. The Apostate

I refuse the outstretched hand
Spit on the book of lies
God damn the apostate
Blasphemy in my veins
From birth, indoctrinate
Instill the fear and hate
Cast down what He creates
And all who question it

His anger righteous, justified
Denied by what He's created

Defy the heavens above us
To pour its wrath down upon us

Beset by fear of Hell
The father’s temperament
Cast out what he has made
His sons and his daughters

His anger righteous, justified
Denied by what He's created

Denied by what He’s Created

Defy the heavens above us
To pour its wrath down upon us
Defy the heavens above us
To pour its wrath down upon us

His anger righteous, justified
Denied by what He's created

Defy the heavens above us
To pour its wrath down upon us
Defy the heavens above us
To pour its wrath
Down upon us
Down upon us

7. Mouthpiece

Lead
I'll follow close behind
Into your depths with only me to confide
For I alone will be your mouthpiece to testify
Yours is my cross to bear
I'll die on this hill for your cause

Actions unspeakable
Defined by truths you've spoken

I'll make them beg your forgiveness
And they will kneel at the foot of your throne
I'll live and die for this purpose
To make them reap every seed they have sewn

Bleed
Suffer no consequence
I will be steadfast and cling to this narrative
Show them hatred that's pure and relentless
Yours is my cross to bear
I'll die on this hill for your cause

Actions unspeakable
Defined by truths you've spoken

I'll make them beg your forgiveness
And they will kneel at the foot of your throne
I'll live and die for this purpose
To make them reap every seed they have sewn

I have laid flesh and blood at your altar
Every breath that I breathe, you take with me
I have laid flesh and blood down before you
Every word on my tongue, you speak for me

I'll make them beg your forgiveness
And they will kneel at the foot of your throne
I'll live and die for this purpose
To make them reap every seed they have sewn
They have sewn

8. Tormentor

You will bear witness to horrors
The mouth of Hell gaping open

Rise and ease the burden of your suffering
Old gods who came before
Holy ghosts who live within us
Only the blood of the willing
Sacrifice
Can bridge the gap between god and creation

Only the blood of the willing
A sacrament to pacify

Rise and embrace the victory of martyrdom
Recite the sacred verse
All else inconsequential
Released from bondage of flesh
We carry on
Only in death will you know its significance

Only the blood of the willing
A sacrament to pacify
Only the blood of the willing

Pray till the light is gone
And into its absence born
We prey upon our young
Weak and impressionable
Showed us their son of God
Who came to save us all
A martyr for their cause
To serve the three as one

Only the blood of the willing
A sacrament to pacify

He is Tormentor
Don't speak
Be spoken for
He is Tormentor
Don't speak
Be spoken for

Rise and ease the burden of your suffering
Old gods who came before
Holy ghosts who live within us
Only the blood of the willing
Sacrifice
Can bridge the gap between god and creation



9. Serpent's Tongue

Beneath your swollen excess
You dig a shallow grave
Built upon the backs of those
Who dare stand in your way
Stamp out the ones who doubt
The merit of your legacy
Ignore the sacrifices made by
Those less fortunate

You'll find your reach falls just
Short of your gaze
From the depths to the throne,
Does it all look the same?

Burn all who dare to question
And they will know your name
Tear down the weak and desperate

A wolf in sheep's disguise
Blessed with a serpent's tongue
They serve to hide from the world
What you really are

10. Mechanical Breath


Removed from stasis to oblivion
Corrupted body becomes unsustainable
Regressive in its fragile consciousness
Succumb to sleep
Cold and indifferent

The body left behind
Soul atomized
Damn the conscious mind
And its unwillingness

Begin the realization of impermanence
And every labored breath, mechanical
The body ravaged and cancerous
To know you're never waking up from this

Incoherent in its final sentiments
Revert to adolescent desperation
Profound longing for those close to us
And to ease the burden of hopelessness

The body left behind
Soul atomized
Damn the conscious mind
And its unwillingness

Begin the realization of impermanence
And every labored breath, mechanical
The body ravaged and cancerous
To know you're never waking up from this

Dear father
Take my breath
And I'll scream until there's nothing left
Just bury me
Just bury me

Dear father
Take my life
Your child has lost the will to fight
The will to bleed
The way you bled for me

Begin the realization of impermanence
And every labored breath, mechanical
The body ravaged and cancerous
To know you're never waking up from this
