Track Name: A Withdrawal of Salvation
Blackened horizons draw nearer
As we enter a new age of fear, and confusion
Technology no longer of use
Forgotten utilization

Desperately trying to rebuild society
Arbitrarily, sending our kind to the abysmal depths
Forgotten utilization of our thoughts

Entering the darkness of a world without solace
And banishment of our salvation
Technology no longer of use
Withdrawal of salvation

Desperately trying to rebuild society
Arbitrarily, sending our kind to the abysmal depths
Forgotten utilization of our thoughts
Track Name: Spacetime Devourment
Kinetic energy forms a void
At the heart of space and time
Stars and planets devoured
Life declined

Consumed at the speed of light
With the heavens flying by
The line between existence and death
So very fine

Nothing will be the same
Nothing is to blame

Calignosity consuming, engulfing this darkened space
As the universal clock stops ticking in this blackened place
Kinetic energy forms a void at the heart of space and time
No reason, no science to explain why
Into this black hole we die

Launched into a cosmic clear
Blessed by the sight
Beams of energy piercing through
Raped by the light

Kinetic energy forms a void
At the heart of space and time
Stars and planets devoured
Life declined

Consumed at the speed of light
With the heavens flying by
The line between existence and death
So very fine

Nothing will be the same
Nothing is to blame
Track Name: Monolith
Upon request
the scientific council
issues you
to research the magnetic field residing
on Erebus 2

As I approach the site,
I feel a static current
running up and down my spine.
When I see what lays ahead,
I know the reason why.

This dark slab before me stands towards the sky.
No light reflected.
Commanding. Imposing.
Pure silence emitted.
Yet, it speaks to me;
The monolith.

Electronic implants
just below my skin
pick up a signal.
My hair stands on edge.

Yet, no one is here except me.

What makes up this creature?
Not skin nor steel nor stone.
This pure dark mass invites me.
I present my hand.

The second I make contact, the monolith uploads
the history of its people to my skull.

A type V civilization
mortal as you or I,
found an eternal way to survive

Their bodies long turned dust
Their consciousness still lives
implanted deep within the monolith.

Colonizing planets
then self-replicating;
Eternal masters from another time.

Now I see our fate before me.
We become machine.
Track Name: Throne of Thorns
The scorching sun beats me down
Anointed in the sky
With death abaft waiting for my soul to take
This austral land takes hold

The dead forest towers above my head
Its reverential hands scrape at the sky
The only shade in sight I scramble for this haven of hell
Nothing to lose I plunge into void

Pushing forward,
Horror in my eyes,
Fungal creatures of
various shape and size

Floral beings with
fangs of bark
Their gaze
turns towards me

Aphotic woodlands
Realm of dreams
No hope or promise
Waits here for me

Longing and hunger
tear at my chest
But creatures do follow
No time to rest

Beyond the thicket
is a great expanse
Sitting dead center
A throne made of thorn

I see him approaching
Two grown men tall
Sunk eyes pierce through me
This kind made of thorn

Aphotic woodlands
Realm of dreams
No hope or primise
waits for me

Standing atop me
Sword at my heart
I feel it slide through me
and stop in the earth

My vision comes brighter
Surroundings turn white
I see now this forest has
Light, light light...
Track Name: Desert Planet
Infernal debris from our closest star is falling.
Corroding what is left of the earth.

Life dies as our spirits fade into the past.
And for those who survive;
We live on a plane of desolation.

Deformed, born into flame, we now roam
the wastes, searching for an answer.
Scorned by the omnipotent sun.

Life dies as our spirits fade into the past.
And for those who survive;
We live on a plane of desolation.

Supernatural chaos in the stratosphere
waiting for the moment, to consume.
Desert Planet: burning of the atmosphere
in order for the cycle to resume.

I cannot stand this burning sun that's beating upon me.
Gallowing winds across the smoldering sky.
I cannot stand this burning sun that's beating upon me.
Gallowing winds across the smoldering sky.

A shifting world leaves us blind.
Becoming the last of our kind
Begging, screaming for solace
as this desert boils our mind.

Falling from the ashes is a fragment.
Can't you see
this was all meant to be.
Falling from the ashes is a seed.
Can't you see
That this desert is alive!

Infernal debris from our closest star is falling.
Corroding what is left of the earth.

Life dies as our spirits fade into the past.
And for those who survive;
We live on a plane of desolation.

Supernatural chaos in the stratosphere
waiting for the moment, to consume.
Desert Planet: burning of the atmosphere
in order for the cycle to resume.

I cannot stand this burning sun that's beating upon me.
Gallowing winds across the smoldering sky.
I cannot stand this burning sun that's beating upon me.
Gallowing winds across the smoldering sky.
Track Name: Utopian Flesh
Now's the time for reconstruction.
For seeds never grown
For the dumbed down and disciplined.
Crying out for protection
We clench this tangled cord and suffocate all memory.

They've cleansed the world of my skin.
Expand the truth with lies.
Mind erasing, thought replacing.
Will I ever have the chance to dine on the ipecac and regain what I am?
To testify against the new wave
Rebuild the modern man.

Sympathy for none.

A feeling of white light surrounds me.
A shining fluorescent disguise
Utopian flesh: bring me closer to god.
Become the mechanical Christ.

We've been saved
And sacrificed
We've been saved
And sold for new

We've been saved
And sacrificed
Replaced
And sold for new

Pretend performers with carrion eyes
Bring fourth consumers to eat, shit, and die.
Your time is running out.

Pretend performers with carrion eyes
Bring fourth consumers to eat, shit, and die.
Your time is running out so bring me your debt.
Track Name: The Descent
The air in the cavern, still as a grave
As I exhale, I watch my breath turn to fog.
The planet is rich, with rare creatures and ore
For which I am forced to bring home.

Yet deep in the void, I can hear it:
A stirring within the bowels of the cave
My captors step forward, exploring.
"Go on ahead", they say with a sneer.

What little light still around us,
Now gone in an instant of time.
We turn to see what confronts us:
An ocean of hungry eyes.

Suddenly the ground opens up.
Massive insects escape from the wound.
The only hope for survival
Now lies in the heart of this tomb.

Turning on my heel
I lurch towards the dark.
Fear envelops my soul.
I hear screams of pain as my captors' limbs break.
And their flesh is torn from their bones.

I cannot see
Running endlessly
God please let me be alive.

Then light caresses my eyes.
Just before they did close.
My lungs ache as I run out of this hell.

I burst outside the entrance.
Blindness, for a moment, takes hold.
When it clears, I do not believe my eyes.

A mountain lays before me.
Winding stairs join the foot to the sky.
At the crest was the temple.
At the entrance: a man.
Standing ablaze with light.
Track Name: The Ascension
I heard his whisper
Recessed inside my mind

"Come to me my child
Peace within you'll find."

So I began my ascension.
With new-found strength, I climbed.
Who is this man, this demigod,
This arcane being of light?

As I climbed up the last step,
From the ground, the pylons rose
To display the mouth of the temple
And in front, a man who glowed.

His piercing eyes locked with mine.
Chilling me to my soul.
Finally, he spoke.

"Your race is a parasite
You consume all in your path.
With no end to your tyranny,
You will end many lives."

"The only one to stop you
Is one of your own kind.
A vessel is required
As a chalice to contain my being."

"When the time comes, a singularity
Will open at the planets core.
Bringing an end to the plague that is man,
It is you, who must bring them their doom."

"Come. Come take my hand.
For I, shall guide thee.
Cross this spectral land.
You will now join me, my son."

"Come. Come take my hand.
I want you to see.
Life without your kind
All else will survive, when you die."
Track Name: The Resolution
With my body deep in stasis,
Mind still awake,
A thought occupies my time.

My craft drifts on home
Through the dark waters of space.
Still, his words echo in my head.

"When you reach Earth
My knowledge will awaken
The power to consume a planet whole."

Should I condemn all men?
Or let them plunge into fire?
It seems man's instinct is to take other life.

I've made up my mind.
Forgiveness cast aside.
You will all die!

Plummeting towards Earth
Atmospheric entry jars my hull.
Spallation occurs.
Showering down on those who live below.
The impact is severe.
Cataclysmic tremors shake the ground.
Molten ejecta descending like tears from the crying sky.

I hear him calling.
His will controls mine.
I give myself unto you.
"It's time to join me my son."
It's time!

Deep within my soul I feel it stirring.
Gravity ever increasing
As the world collapses unto me.

White noise fills my ears.
White light blinds my eyes.
The world is fading, fading gently.
Closing in on me, as I die.

If mankind's passion is the desire to kill,
Then I guess it's fitting that I'm the last one who will.

Memories drifting down to the river of life.
I see their faces in the reflection.
Earth collapsing, we're all out of time.
I am one with nothing.

I hear him calling.
His body controls mine.
I give myself unto you.
"It's time to join me my son"
It's time!

Deep within the earth, the core is shrinking.
People screaming. Dying. Bleeding.
Crushed to death by their own gravity.

No noise to be heard.
No light to be seen.
Silencing hanging ever restless.
Obmutescence where earth used to be.
