Track Name: Nostradamus
Gases scald the skin
Dissected through fumes
Toxic residue burning
Melting altered genetic code
Greenhouse effects
Solar flares harmful rays
Chemically damaged soil
Warned of this disaster

Planets misaligned
Societies denied
Manuscript deciphered
Scorned life
Blood red water washed ashore
The acid rain will fall
Nature on fire
Population in chaos

Defying universal laws
Form of primitive culture
Mankind will be crucified
Baneful reign of terror
Omitting predictions
Path beyond creation
Coming events cast shadow
Left to lay in dust

Invisible pollution
Every breath is tainted
Ozone erosion the dangers unaware
Forged existence
Fighting to survive
Extinction of humanity
Darkness overcomes

Holy messenger divine
Bringer of fate
In ashes words of truth are lost
Offerings in fire

Heed the words ill spoken
Oracle of a higher wisdom
Profess the unseen destiny
Sermons written in text

Nuclear winter, turn of the century
Exterminate forms of religion
Threat of world wide flooding
Continental structures divide

Looking through the eyes of the future
The past is now long forgotten
History means nothing
In a world where we all die

Heed the words ill spoken
Track Name: Carnage of Withered Remains
Enter into the lair
The brutally twisted domain
Engulfed in the pits of hell
The kingdom of heaven shall burn
Burn, burn, burn
Mystic tombs of the ancient
Chambers of terror
Awaken the hate

Evil
Release the fury of vengeful rage
Sinister
Unholy war has been reborn

Arise, arise, rise, rise

Rise demons of rapture
Dominant force
Striking with intensity
Blasphemous sorcerer conjuring
Legions of the undead
To serve the master
Majestic one
Swarm of ungodly beings
Inflicting eternal misery
Damnation at hand
Benign incantation
Marks the opposing
Penetrating the silence
Embark on the end of the calm

Carnage of withered remains

Enter into the lair
The crumbling structures of time
Retract a tormented age
Pure essence of doom
Condemned
Endless reign of the elders
Crushing the mundane
Dominion extinct

Watch the immortals
Evaporate into mist
Powers evoked
Pain echoes eternally
Tombs of bloodied catacombs
All out wars enrage
Forcing into
Consumed in sacrilege

Carnage!
Track Name: Edge of Darkness
Prophecy foretells
What the future holds
The realm of existence
Awaits in clouded skies
Lingering stench
Rotting decay of metropolis
To prey on the living
And scavenge on the dead

Mass intuition
Shadows burn with nights on fire
Dreaming at dusk
As dying thoughts reflect on images
Wounded bodies creep away into the night
Absence devours daylight's savior
Moon shines bright, it's light is blinding
As evil spells unravel in chaos and tears the mind

Hungry undead souls not satisfied
Restless constant search for living flesh
They must consume to sustain life
Drink the blood and desecrate to survive

Wind whispers, dark is near
Fears they call to face the sickness
It's you they craze
Inviting scent for the feeding frenzy
From the blackness of the night
Pray to god that you'll be saved

Land of oblivion, the silence speaks
Betrayed by the dawn, hypocrisy
Encased in the fortress of timeless serenity
The valley of tortured is now forsaken

Lost in the enchantment of the surroundings
This life beyond the grave
Spawns of the ancient
Flows through eternity's veins
Edge of darkness it breaks within
Track Name: Engraved
Dark mausoleum, ancient scrolls of prophecy
Spirit is summoned through ritual, sky is black
Etched in stone memories of long forgotten
Sacred remains the name engraved

Bring back to life, reanimate
Dying world of damnation
Darkness and the cold
Shadows on the winter sky
Overcomes by force
The mystery enshrouded
You will never reveal

Carved inscriptions engraved within
All that exists withered from time
Emptied remnants, hollowed tomb
Sullen sounds echoes deep
Left to rot the passing away
Leaves fall, seasons change
Fading memories of lives remains

Pain endures evils that have arrived
Spirits weep horrible imaginings
Hell of the soul, purgatory of the mind

Ashes of recent demise
Sorrow howls in the night
Lost in eternity never to return
Existence of a past life engraved

Dark mausoleum, ancient scrolls of prophecy
Spirit is summoned through ritual, sky is black
Etched in stone memories of long forgotten
Sacred remains, the name engraved

Bring back to life, reanimate
Dying world of damnation
Darkness and the cold
Shadows on the winter sky
Overcomes by force
The mystery enshrouded
You will never reveal
Track Name: Reawakening the Pestilence
Surgical tool
Lacerating contaminated flesh
Autopsy performed
Biohazard labs hold the contagion
Thought to be eradicated
Reawaken through exhumation
State of emergency

Government begins inoculations
Dead and buried containing virus
Never destroyed absent minds exempt
Prosecution the verdict read
Reawakening the pestilence
Burnt remains
Of those who suffered in horror
Children crying denied existence
Waiting for your end of life
Humanity untwines political establishments

Lie, await and hide
Mysterious illness
Spreading through direct contact
Immunization is needed
Discoloration scars the skin

Lying dormant released to atmosphere
Sea of bodies excavated
Air is filled with stench

Drops of rain christen the earth
Fatality rate climbs higher
Massive infections the end of life
Reawakening the pestilence
Burnt remains
Of those who suffered

Surgical tool
Lacerating contaminated flesh
Autopsy performed
Biohazard labs hold the contagion
Thought to be eradicated
Track Name: Faceless Coward
Terror struck on a day
That eternally lives in infamy
Acts of hate, violate
A devastated nation struggling with the truth
Lives are torn, new war is born
With wide spread panic, stricken with fear
Emotions drained, forever changed

Plot of the mastermind
The one who sends the wrath
Guilty of the slaughter
Sickened ways of the martyr
Following strict commands
Attack of worldly monuments
Sudden attack with no warning
Attempts to end our freedom

You will fucking burn!

Attacked by a faceless coward
Personal vengeance through missions from god
To kill all opposing scriptures
To twist the meanings into his own
Global deployment of armies
Universal strategic missions
Annihilation of a damned country
False prophet soon will perish

You'll violently die
By the hands of traumatic force
Time to pay has come to pass
Who lay slaughtered undeservingly slain
Feelings and memories of lost will never fade
But you will die and again we'll reign supreme

Dissection of a country harboring fugitives of chaos
Territories bombed at will release the fury and the rage
The search in the mountains for weak burrowed in the caves
Crushing of entire region mass destruction takes its toll
The fight to end the suffering

Attack the faceless coward
Gathering vital information proves
That he who committed the sinister is sought and wanted dead
Beaten to submission
As an act against religion
Fight to seize the overthrow
The hunt to kill the one, your king

Wars they rage to this day
Many lives were ripped and torn away
Blood strains red from countless dead
Futile struggle for countries freed
To end the war for hate and greed
As a devastated nation rises
The battle cries paint the distant skies
Death to the faceless coward
Track Name: Eviscerated
Lust uncontrolled
The urge to kill is great
Must be contained before it's too late
A life descends, a new one begins
Natural for animal to feast on prey
In violent rage

Blood craving maniac with axe in hand
Stalks his victims, precise deadly accuracy

Skin and clothing discarded
Wasted, torn from body
Chewing meat after the kill

Body lies still
Smiling with content
Sick bastard
Fluid drips from the mouth devouring

Cannot stop
Teeth ripping into bone
Transformed
Feel your life change
Eviscerated
Lick my lips with bloody grin
Sub-species, creation of another kind

Raped my soul, eyes are bleeding
Scalps lay in piles of the charred
Sheets of bile ordained beliefs
Shattered hope

Multiple pieces
Rearranged in the coffin
Sinking slowly into the ground
Another sought...

Lust uncontrolled
The urge to kill is great
Must be contained before it's too late
A life descends, a new one begins
Natural for animal to feast on prey
In violent rage

Blood craving maniac!
Track Name: Entrails of the Sacrificed
Devouring disease and sickness
Only to please my exotic intent to feed
Worming my fingers through muscle
Laughing maliciously watching you bleed

Extent of anger not revealed
I don't feel, I take you under
You don't know why I'm full of hate

Gutted with meat hooks
Intestines removed
Payment, your life
Debt fulfilled
Entrails of the sacrificed
Victims of mutilation

Bullet through head
Left for dead
Price you pay
Cold blooded murderers
Your death is a sign to others
Chunks of meat, splattered brains
Innocent life taken, no explanation
Sorrow for those denied will not help
Powerful reign in form of violence
Retaliation unexpected
Lifetime unveiled

Entrails of the sacrificed
Victims of mutilation
Beat to pulp, skinned alive
Embodiment of nature

Consumed entirely
Skull is picked clean
Inhumane act of hate
Dawn of a sinister age
Track Name: Fall of Man
Strangers among us, alien race
Samples of species dissected
Human collections disappearing one by one
Government concerned, random selection is made
Some not returned, subconscious erased
Regressive hypnosis, memories suppressed
Clouded by visions, unknown marks appear
Strapped onto table, human mind control
Psychological programming
Conscious recollections

Unknown faces silently observe
Scalpel to head, needle eyes, eyes
Eyes can't believe what you see them do
Denial, destruction, domain
No pain is felt armed with prods analyze
The gathering of minds, fear man falls prey

Abducted, drugged
Endangered by knowledge
Military investigation
Physical agenda

Cross breeding lies
Pain experiments
Implant eyes
Stare at the atrocity
Brain operations, extractions
The mind altering moods
To kill suffering

Among other beings
Description of reptoids
Evidences of cloning bare witness

Strangers among us, alien race
Samples of species dissected
Human collections disappearing one by one
Government concerned, witness the fall of man

Bare witness to the fall of man
Track Name: Ethnic Cleansing
Stare into the eyes of fate
Try to hide, no escape
The ethnic cleansing
Broken lives, forced to submit
Fatal wrath death strikes
Savage acts of violence

Slaughtered pawns
Pity for their selfish greed
Falsified
Propaganda glorified
Dignified lies mask the truth
To disregard the human race
Military threats overwhelm the masses
Defiled existence
Onslaught of the killing machine

Heritage, ancestry
Contagious insanity
Endless battled endured
Victims of primitive war

Eliminate control
Erratic minds desecrate
Territory to defend
With continued suffering
The missing dead, lifeless
Impossible to calculate
Surging from far beyond
Overstepping boundaries
Poisoned by technology
Who is next

Outcry of civil nations
Deception through defiance
Fear amongst world leaders
Peaceful efforts deprived

Merciless in defeat
Living horrors reigns
Visions of atrocities
Barbaric ways dominate

Stare into the eyes of fate
Judgement day, no escape
Fear of a world demise
Fading before our eyes
The ethnic cleansing
Track Name: Aftermath
My shadow screams
No light shines through this mask
Painful shrieks of dying victims
In the distance hear their cries

On this solemn day, empty hollow space
Surrounded by black veil
Filled with darkness, eternal void
Scenes of the aftermath

Run for life
Escape the agony
Burning flames surrounding
Hideous images seen

Open and close your eyes
Darkness is all you see
Witness the awe, the obliteration
Screams of torment rage
Released with fury

Help us!

Chanting dark haunted melody
Future or present
Questions persist
Suicide terrorist
Dying for beliefs
Killing for martyrdom
Soon will have to pay

My shadow screams
Transparent visions appear
Floating through mist and fog
Scenes of the aftermath

Bracing for impact
Prepared for the worst
Could happen at anytime
Devastation, annihilation
Realize you're never safe
From the terrors that's lurking inside
What can we all do
To escape this atrocity

You never thought
All of this would make you think
About life and these passing days
Passing days!
Track Name: Hellish Miscreant
Savage god fearless brutal
Summoned from the underworld
Hunting and fighting
Ceremonies held in temples
Ritual worship
Bound by vow of silence
And destruction lurk
Enthroned sits Dionesis
Suffering grief
Cries of forgivefullness
Desolate radiance shines

Dreadful but cruel
Obey the words
Sorrowful thought immortal
Kingdom of darkness shall hold

Sacred rites at the hour of death
Devour the bloodied shreds of flesh
Ecstasy horrible feast
Torch blazes sight of the beast
Ugly and degrading
Atrocious crimes commited

Man destroyer banished fear
Conquered enemies





Eyes wept tears of blood
Dethroned against fate
Brought forth from dark depths
Sickness and deadly age
Destroyed by own hands
Worshipping power

Messenger or slave
Unforseen dangers await
Eternal salvation
Death breeds comtempt
Spirit of the altars
At times of distress you pray
Under sentence only the guilt remains

Dreadful but cruel
Obey the words
Sorrowful thought immortal
Kingdom of darkness shall hold

The rites of burial
Placed in memory
Hellish miscreant
