Track Name: No Room For Ingenuity
"Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called equality."

"Falsity cannot keep an idea from being beautiful; there are certain errors of such ingenuity that one could regret their not ranking among the achievements of the human kind."

"Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man."
Track Name: Prolonging the Inevitable
Since the beginning of time, there's been one basic principle of man
Increasingly dependent on conformity to survive
Giving away to science and technology
It's been this way for centuries

(They say...)
Kill off the man, for he is the devil amongst mankind
Destroy what is deemed as different, for we can live "Under God"
Dominate the wicked, to proclaim yourself as one
They build churches, missionaries to spread this filth
Never knowing the internal damage that's stapled the Earth for eternity
The inevitable is here

(I am...dreaming!)
I dream for better days...
How can we prolong this?
This is an abomination that shall never end
Society is a fraud
Heaven is a false promise
Mixed feelings of misanthropy
I'm surrounded in purity and hypocrisy
(Am I...)
Nailed to what you believe?

Renascent iniquity
Cursed improperly
Respect declines, more followers succumb to this lie
The inevitable is here
Humanity dies as a martyr
Track Name: To Have Or To Be?
"Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction."


"Man is the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve."


"We live in a world of things, and our only connection with them is that we know how to manipulate or to consume them."
Track Name: The False Enmity
Without being defiled...
His savage barbarity was equaled by the consummate coolness
I was ready...
There was no rejection

He told me with great solemnity
"Go forth!"
I must forge! I must go back!
Before I do, I must lure him into another section of the forest
My legs were torn in sundry places and covered in blood
In the wilderness, forlorn with hunger, the plan was set
I concluded
Starvation

Voluntarily, I began to eat my own flesh
This is what I wanted
The sound of the wild depressed my spirit
Filling me with the most ineffable sadness

Hatred, manifesting....
Self-loathing, oppressing....

I often found myself regretting my very existence
This thought was often shallow and grave
This was never easy to overcome
Impulsively
Reluctantly
I sank down, mourning over my wretched condition
Wishing myself to be dead
Track Name: Denounced Manifestation
I have never understood the art of predisposing against me
I consider it a great honor
I feel no curiousity

(After all) It is a distinction one must have earned
The overestimation, the predilection for pity is not something new
I accept no one,
I denounce you all

This does not discourage...
This does not keep my eyes from being open
(But...)
What else is this?
If not the end of my humanity?
What else could this be?
If not a recipe for my...decadence?
Track Name: At The Temple of Everlasting Condemnation
Instrumental
Track Name: Ordaining The Apocalypse
Seeping darkness gathering from within my soul
Terror is the shadow of my fear
Publicated in front of the world to see

Assigned to the theme of being under the guillotine
They didn't wait for the opportunity to believe
Solemnly, they wait for retribution

Waging warfare against the tyrants
Sunlight falls from darkness into darkness
Bound for glorification
There will be no reconciliation!

(repeat 2nd paragraph)

The mystic shade is perpetuated, consumed against all
Sworn to the black
Enslaving with terror and haste
By fate ordained
Spiritual apocalyptic heresy
The dawn has come - The plague engulfs me...

Enlightenment will bring us to the promised land
We shall find redemption

Succumbed impending pandemic righteousness
Falling from above, summoning humanity to its death
Eternal winter cast from beyond

There will be no solace! (x3)
In ordaining this apocalypse
Salvation forsaken...
...Never to return
Track Name: Immoral Abhorrence
So abhorred
They are so dedicated, they carry a lost passion
In the sense of word and gesture, mankind's faith remains withheld

In opposition
Is this the remnant of the fallen messiah?
The fallen, blind, religious dogma
Must we hold the unquestionable to be true?

Is your faith within the confinement of your interpretation?
(Let it not inflict or conflict!)
Let it not inflict gloom as soon as we hear the word...
Torture!!!

(Torture?)
Torture...
Who adheres to the concept of immorality?
Can I?
Better yet... Can you?
Let this not be deemed immoral!

Whether we submit differently, difficulty or gladly
One gives another what they want or deserve.
Doesn't that sound strange to you?
Doesn't that sound immoral?
Let immorality remain in security,
Let abhorrence be at one with silence.
Track Name: Of Divine Nature
Neglected, searching for a candidate
One to neutralize the disease
Intertwined, the tremors grow stronger
Infidel, all walks of civilization are useless
What will become of this nature of divine suffering?

Subconsciously, it haunts...
Shaking anger throughout my bones
Therefore, another gray day?
(Whenever will this pass amongst me?)
I rearrange the spasms to hallucinations
Convulsing...
Silent suffering...
This isn't a question of ethics

An agent has seeped into me, it controls my life force
I'll never admit to my procreated sickness
A slave, subservient to pestilence
Contagious thoughts of survival
Intervention is dysfunctional
And to withdraw, is to die

Biological psyche condemned
Rejection constructs delirium
A commitment I cannot forsake
Biological psyche condemned
By all walks of society

Enthusiastic parasitic dehydration
Frustration lasting every waking moment
Compulsive delusions and anxiety riddle the mind
How much must I take?

Whenever will I wake from this delirium?
My outcry is met with skepticism
Don't renew the thought of survival
Hopeful riddance of pollution
An undetectable deterring of reconstruction
Complication consuming dependency

Indeed, another gray day...
One more taste to bring tormented bliss

(Repeat 2nd paragraph)

Another injection keeps this mortal shell alive
Eradicate the delirious state
One of which my soul may never wake
