Track Name: Descension
Misery, overwhelm me
Eclipsing vibrant lights
A hollow vessel
Left to follow
Desolation
An abysmal existence
Marred by human tragedy

Denied, the blissful lie of comfort
Defiled, a stain to mock the beauty
This plague, weighs down on me
More than any terror that i could ever bear

Unknown entity
(Possess me)
It takes its form in a malevolent shadow
Beyond the uncertainty
(Possess me)
With the consequence of past life forgotten

My eyes are open wide but the visions I've had still keep me blind
My thoughts create distorted reality

Embrace the emptiness consuming my being
As I descend into the design
My design

I see that without balance
There is no control
Convey lies unto me
Bend my mind beyond all repair
Convey lies unto me
Bend my mind beyond all repair

Unknown entity
(Possess me)
It takes its form in a malevolent shadow
Beyond the uncertainty
(Possess me)
With the consequence of past life forgotten

My home
My home of abaddon
This anguish I've built inside my mind
My tomb

Fiend, master of subversion
I bestow this offering
Immolation
Fallen are the ones decaying in crimson and gold
Perdition
Track Name: Pelagius
Nothing will be left standing here
We separate ourselves from humanity

A different kind of lie
It doesn't even matter what you do to me
The seeds, will be planted paving way for new history
My fates concealed
The decision will be made without empathy

The rivers were poisoned with blood

The thought came from the heart
Wanting to set us free
We took this life for granted
There's nothing we strive to be
Redefine the motive
Behind the glass they hide
Broken, bruised and beaten
Lies a body without a mind

Wake me from this dream
The illusion they made is so comfortable
Seeking for a way
The solution we need is impossible to reach
The time has come for us to breath
(For the first time i can barely breath)
In time we'll be out there
An illusion we made, created out of hate

The thought came from the heart
Wanting to set you free

The illusion they made is so
comfortable
Another deception brought to me
They hide us from the truth
With our hands chained to the wall
And a knife stuck in your back

Wait, waiting for air the breath
My innocence taken from dreams
Save, save me from this disease
Before we lose to oblivion

Wake me from this dream
The illusion they made is so comfortable
In time we'll be out there
An illusion we made, created out of hate

Born into this treachery
Contorted deception

We remain in this struggle
Forced to repeat these cycles
Patterns forming in sequence
Our world feeds into our illusion
Track Name: Torch and Nail
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Impermanence
An ever constant flow
Destined to repeat the past
With each tale left untold
No greater than the last
No greater than the last

The ancient parable
Passed down from grave to grave
Inching towards efflorescent lights
A perception of existence
Broken by the continuous stain

Attained
Attained from lies proclaimed still
Believing
Believing every word were spoken true

Echos lost in time
Spoken with
A language we have understood wrong
A language we have understood wrong

Through celestial completion
Obsolescence
Calling for life to begin
A natural progression falls
Into sequence
Defined by the infinite void

Far beyond the constant pendulum swings
Inversion of fate
Torn from a permanent bond
Obsolescence
Drifting far apart
Manifests itself through parallels
Inevitably changes
Forcefully ruptured the stars
Deliverance
Into sequence
Become reborn

Time will reclaim
Rebuilt to only destroy
New beginnings must come to an end
A brief lapse in pace
Finite potential
Has come to a waste
Forgotten in lost moments
Prime example of testing fate
Reflecting on past fallacies

A natural progression falls
Into sequence
Defined by the infinite void

Driven to the brink of extinction
Combined as one
Transcend into permanence
Beyond the will to survive

Drifting away the horizon is nearing completion
Recreate a new world
An advancement in vision
One by one
Impermanence
Will still continue to cycle
Fluctuate between the lines
The only constant is change
Never defined

Aberration of existence
Oscillation
Shifting through the paradigm
A natural progression falls
Into sequence
Defined by the infinite void

In final waves
Anticipate the transformation

Aberration of existence
Oscillation
Shifting through the paradigm
Track Name: Goliath
Arise
Awaken
Fractures the earth beneath

Timeless constant
Carry on perpetually
Sever the ties that still continues to bind

(As you)
Take everything you could take
I start to fear my own reflection
Starting back at me
With blank, empty eyes
Incarnated form to behold an urge so primal

As it dwells in the shadows
Laying dormant for far too long
Yet i still struggle to push myself
Into the unknown

Endless moments of torment
Obscure my mind with thoughts of storms
Now lost
The absence of light
For shadows the imminent pestilence

And as I wander through this barren wasteland
The skies turned to gray
Embers and ashes rain in blackened majesty
Fiend, unbecoming of me
Severing body from mind
Relinquish my every being

"How did this become my fate?"
Unable to endure the penance I've paid
Like a moth lead to flames
Drawing me closer with its luring gaze
Break down my guard
Pull on the fibers of my fragmented soul
Falling so close
To devastation i can only hope to lose within

Dissolved
Erased
Integral rifts decayed

The destroyer of self
An essence of chaos left my life to claim
Enshrined in the flame (in the flame)
You will know horror when you speak my name

I am goliath
Arise
Awaken
Arise

Decimate, all I can see
The footprint of man will nothing but memory
Separate, the bone from flesh
This anguish I yearn for will never be quenched

I live divided within
With the fear that i won't
Ever be able to end this need
Behold omnipotence superior mirage

Inside the storm I'm losing sight of what I really am
Inside the storm I'm losing sight of what I really am
When will it stop? (when will it stop?)
When will it stop? (when will it stop?)
How can silence be so beautiful?

Misery, overwhelm me
Eclipsing vibrant lights
I bring upheaval now I have awakened

I see now true reality
