Track Name: Scorn in the Aether
(Intro)
Track Name: Ghouls Around the Blade
"Ghouls Around the Blade"

With chants of ghouls
Around the blade
Throughout the town
The bells have sounded
Execute the heretic!
We shall not suffer
The unrepentant!

Hallowed be thy name
Our lord and savior
Who died upon the cross
Then arose from the tomb
Blessing all mankind

With chants of ghouls
Around the blade
Throughout the town
The bells have sounded
Execute the heretic!
We shall not suffer
The unrepentant!
By the grace of God be sent
To the place of
Flames and torment
By decree we slaughter thee
Then rejoice in celebration

Hallowed be thy name
Our lord and savior
Who died upon the cross
Then arose from the tomb
Blessing all mankind
With blood to wash the sins
Away - resides our loving god
In the hearts of men
Never to be found
Unless you're on your knees
Praying to the carcass
On the cross

Hold the cross!
Kiss the corpse!
This is the story we're told
This is the fable bestowed

(Solo)

Hold the cross!
Kiss the corpse!
This is the story we're told
This is the fable bestowed

(Solo)

With chants of ghouls
Around the blade
Throughout the town
The bells have sounded
Execute the heretic!
We shall not suffer
The unrepentant!
By the grace of God be sent
To the place of
Flames and torment
By decree we slaughter thee
Then rejoice in celebration
Track Name: Arise in Thorns
"Arise in Thorns"

With no purpose
With no longing to gain
Just a will to power
A vital force to expend
To serve no master
Yet to serve the all
Existing just to create
An 'ever flowing
Nothing

I will not conform!
I will arise in thorns!
Defying the deified!
I will arise!!!

(Solo)

With no purpose
With no longing to gain
Just a will to power
A vital force to expend

I will not conform!
I will arise in thorns!
Defying the deified!
I will arise!!!

Time heals all flesh
Though, builds only scars
In the fragile mind - a tangled tapestry
The sorrow, the pain, and the suffering
Draped in the memories that bleed

(Solos)

Track Name: Blood Bender
"Blood Bender"

Interloper!
Unseen until you've multiplied!
Fastidious and hideous!
You grind and glide until you find
Your blood meal!
Engorge upon your sustenance!
So fast to feed!
Excess expelled as excrement!

Blood born
Blood feast
Blood defecation
Blood sworn
Blood beast
Blood incantation
Blood drunk
Blood drenched
Blood excitation
Blood bound
Blood binge
Blood bender!

Double-terror
Parasite
You seek a host
Infecting on the outside
If ingested
By your foe
In yourself
A larval growth

Blood born
Blood feast
Blood defecation
Blood sworn
Blood beast
Blood incantation
Blood drunk
Blood drenched
Blood excitation
Blood bound
Blood binge
Blood bender!

Resistance
To chemical solutions
Diatomaceous earth
Is utilized
Six months of egregious
Facilitating
Still there is scratching
With worm segments scattered

They squirm!
They ripple for prey
They die as they try!
Becoming desiccated
A vestige invested
Though, now only destined
To be swept away!

(Solos)

(Solo)

You motherfuckers!
Why won't you just go away?!
I hate each and every fucking one of you!
Surviving - imbibing - while irritating
You fucking bastards!
Bring on the freeze and low humidity!
The only good thing about winter
Is seeing your numbers despoiled!
Track Name: Severely Severed
"Severely Severed"

It's almost unbearable
To be awake within this dream
To see the light
Consumed in black
Beyond the flesh
Reptilian fiends
Manipulate and separate
To overtake and populate
They gain control
Through mental states
Devised within
Genetic traits

(Repeat)

I don't want to be here
Among the dying herd
Severely severed
Their souls extracted
All that's left are
Hollow shells of woe

(Solo)

It's almost unbearable
To be awake within this dream
To see the light
Consumed in black
Beyond the flesh
Reptilian fiends
Manipulate and separate
To overtake and populate
They gain control
Through mental states
Devised within
Genetic traits

(Solo)
Track Name: Cutthroat Proclivity
"Cutthroat Proclivity"

Here comes the
New wave of
Shallow laden performers
Heralds of the
Fated trends
Directing the mindless voters
With a cutthroat proclivity!
Deem the swill to be divine
And shovel the shit
To assuage the swine

(Solo)

New wave of
Shallow laden performers

With a cutthroat proclivity!
Deem the swill to be divine
And shovel the shit
To assuage the swine

(Solo)

Shroud the truth
Deny the lie
Hold the proof
To simplify
A chain of fools
Exemplifies
The weakest link
Shall typify
The crowning error
Of humanity

Track Name: The Ideal Torture
"The Ideal Torture"

Insolent
The wretched herd
The faithful preach
Temerity
The lack of comprehensive
Truth
Belief instilled
Audacity
To lie in wait
Devotion grows

With graves filled
Of the decomposed
From hymns come
Casket lullabies
Prayers only mask
The ineptitude
To praise his name
Lord of the flies

From wounds
The wine profane
Relish the hellish
The ravishing pain!
Partake of the
Sanguinary libations!
The crimson tonic
Stultifies the bane

The wrath of the lamb
Fleeced and slaughtered
As the astrakhan
Drained of it's life
Then fed to the sheep
Asleep they weep
While gnashing teeth
Counting the blessed
Dreams of victory

(Solo)

Insolent
The wretched herd
The faithful preach
Temerity
The lack of comprehensive
Truth

To lie in wait
Devotion grows
Track Name: On Jagged Slopes
"On Jagged Slopes"

High in the mountains
On jagged slopes
Tribal hunters
Wearing skins and bones
Danced around their fires
Singing prayers to their gods
Savage invitations
Breathing life into their storms

Fashion lightning bolts
From spears made out of stone
We are warriors
Fierce - our fates are blessed!

(Solo)

Fashion lightning bolts
From spears made out of stone
We are warriors
Fierce - our fates are blessed!

(Repeat)

A once proud people
Slaughtered as they slept
Ravaged and ruined
By those whom languished
In the lavish
Strung up and flayed
For the whole world to see
The clandestine occupation
Like the harbor to the tide
Salvaged the sacred
And gifted its noble race
With amnesty

(Solo)

High in the mountains
On jagged slopes
Tribal hunters
Wearing skins and bones
Danced around their fires
Singing prayers to their gods
Savage invitations
Breathing life into their storms
Track Name: Segue to Satan
"Segue to Satan"

Formless presence
Shadows of the night
Spirit of the wild
Roaming through the sky

Prowling in the darkness
It beckons the time to loom

Ageless silence
Echoes of the Sun
Shining through eternal
Strength beyond creation

Prowling in the darkness
It beckons the time to loom
A savage inclination
To dominate its prey
Exacting, seething, fortitude

(Solos)

(Instrumental)
Track Name: Where Kali Dwells
"Where Kali Dwells"

Emerging from the labyrinth
Well beyond all countenance
In the darkness with no light
The bounty grows and flows
With spite
Attracted to the fortress halls
The single motivation
Is to scale the walls
Attach to a patch
Within the chasm
And quietly hide
Between the gorge

The tactical maneuver
Increasing the sense of
Accomplishment
Guarantees a time to
Assess the mores
With revelations held
Behind closed doors
Overcoming all
The obstacles
The journey of one
Becomes the manifold
The story, the myth
The admiration
Awaiting the day
To conceive

Lunar cycles
Of the she-devils
Flickering tongues
Invoke the scathing winds
No logic
To the sprawling forces
Just incessant howling

(Solo)

Like the mysteries of
The ocean's tides
Here unto imbue
The menacing scarlet hue

(Solo)

Ripped away and falling
Cascading through
A whirling void
The river pours
Into the sky
Where the red
Becomes the horizon

(Solo)

Walking the tight rope
Trying to please
Jumping through hoops
Of fire
Nothing can appease
The vengeful wraith
Where Kali dwells

(Solo)

Walking the tight rope

Jumping through hoops
Of fire
Nothing can appease
The vengeful wraith
Where Kali dwells

(Solo)

Ripped away and falling
Cascading through
A whirling void
The river pours
Into the sky
Where the red
Becomes the horizon
