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

With chants of ghouls

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: I of the Storm
"I of the Storm"

Prodigious - the stillness
The chaos - the unborn dream
Dynamic fire of icy reign
Limited by the nature of design
Yet vast in the scope of designation

I of the storm
Meting out the discipline
I of the storm
Beating out the innocence
I of the storm
Gathering the miscreants
I of the storm
Destruction then replenishment

Prodigious - the stillness

I of the storm
Meting out the discipline
I of the storm
Beating out the innocence
I of the storm
Gathering the miscreants
I of the storm
Destruction then replenishment

Track Name: Grinding the Wind
"Grinding the Wind"

Wake up in the morning
Truly it's a mourning
I fucking suck at living
I'm good at dying
Every fucking day
I wish I wasn't alive
Sick of all this bullshit
Yet I can't quit

Paradise lies out the windows
All we do is march in circles
Shackled to this wheel of torture
Punishment for crimes are rendered

Wake up in the morning
Truly it's a mourning
I fucking suck at living
I'm good at dying
Every fucking day
I wish I wasn't alive
Sick of all this bullshit
Yet I can't quit
Busy treading water
Drowning in the shallows
Demons in the sky
Are howling louder
Driving me insane
With their taunting
Callous screams
My life goes down the drain
As I'm grinding the wind

Paradise lies out the windows
All we do is march in circles
Shackled to this wheel of torture
Punishment for crimes are rendered
Paradise lies out the windows
All we do is march in circles
Shackled to this wheel of torture
Punishment is grinding the wind!

(Solos)

Wake up in the morning
Truly it's a mourning
I fucking suck at living
I'm good at dying
Every fucking day
I wish I wasn't alive
Sick of all this bullshit
Yet I can't quit
Busy treading water
Drowning in the shallows
Demons in the sky
Are howling louder
Driving me insane
With their taunting
Callous screams
My life goes down the drain
As I'm grinding the wind
Track Name: Shiv
"Shiv"

I'm gonna fucking kill you!
I'm gonna write MY name in YOUR blood!
You will remember me!
I am the one who will make you - DIE!!!
I am your god now
Entangled is your misery
You won't take your own life
So, I will do it for you!

Bow before my blade and execute my will!
Bow before your god and pray to end the pain!
Bow before my blade and execute my will!
Bow before your god and pray to end the pain!

(Solos)

Bow before my blade and execute my will!
Bow before your god and pray to end the pain!
Bow before my blade and execute my will!

Entangled is your misery
You won't take your own life
So, I will do it for you!
Track Name: Adorned Without Ceremony
"Adorned Without Ceremony"

Adorned without ceremony
Crowned before a cold sojourn
The air is thick with sovereign ashes
Tears are wept from sorrow's thorns
The wrenching grief
The unquenched mourning
Ageless wrath of regrets sewn
The tapestry - a strangling harness
Death becomes the only hope

Forever haunted - forever hunted
Like wolves at the womb
Tearing out the innocence
Left in ruins
The godless heathens
The chosen few
Feeding hunger with starvation

Adorned without ceremony
Crowned before a cold sojourn
The air is thick with sovereign ashes
Tears are wept from sorrow's thorns
The wrenching grief
The unquenched mourning
Ageless wrath of regrets sewn
The tapestry - a strangling harness
Death becomes the only hope

Forever haunted - forever hunted
Like wolves at the womb
Tearing out the innocence
Left in ruins
The godless heathens
The chosen few
Feeding hunger with starvation

Death honors no one!
No one knows this more than
The dying!
Death honors no one!
What's worse than death
Is not knowing the beauty
You've destroyed!

(Solos)

Death honors no one!
No one knows this more than
The dying!
Death honors no one!
What's worse than death
Is not knowing the beauty
You've destroyed!

(Solo)

Adorned without ceremony
Crowned before a cold sojourn
The air is thick with sovereign ashes
Tears are wept from sorrow's thorns
The wrenching grief
The unquenched mourning
Ageless wrath of regrets sewn
The tapestry - a strangling harness
Death becomes the only hope
Track Name: That Which Serves
"That Which Serves"
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Scourge of Vicissitude
"Scourge of Vicissitude"

Life!
Death!
Death in life!
Life in death!

Aggravation
Deep frustration
Agonizing pain
Mind is racing
Constant aching
Reaching out though all I do
Is push away
Caught within this
Burning chaos
Razor blades won't
Cut the chains
Temperance through suffering
Find solace in the
Scourge of Vicissitude!

(Solo)

Agitation from stagnation
Make it through another day
Growing weary of this fury
Change is only shades of dismay
The heart has sunk
The blood grows black
The eyes see only grey
I'll finalize my exit plan
And destroy all in my way!

(Solo)

Scourge of Vicissitude
All is seen as life's abuse
The struggle only kills you!
There's no escape
There is no end
Constant suicide

Aggravation
Deep frustration
Agonizing pain
Mind is racing
Constant aching
Reaching out though all I do
Is push away
Caught within this
Burning chaos
Razor blades won't
Cut the chains
Temperance through suffering
Find solace in the
Scourge of Vicissitude!

Agitation from stagnation
Make it through another day
Growing weary of this fury
Change is only shades of dismay
The heart has sunk
The blood grows black
The eyes see only grey
I'll finalize my exit plan
And destroy all in my way!
