Emergence 06:27
Entrapped between matter and chaos Where the future and past are as one In my dreams I have seen a reflection Of the unworld that is to become I sought knowledge inside this arcanum And perhaps I have travelled too far For a vision so bitter and horrid Now forever my soul enscars Relieved from the Shell of Unessence I awoke in a barren scape Engulfed by the desperate struggle Of a world becoming a grave I wandered up a dreaded hill What I saw there my heart afroze A weeping tree as black as ash Where humongous stormclouds rose I stared at the sorrowful creature Feeling what it had seen and known Now at the end of all creation Tears of blood from its branches flow A figure in gloom then appeared to me Underneath him the ones that I loved And with inhumane voice he declared to me That my life was paid through their blood Then I faced the gaping infinity As a choir of agonal cries Overwhelmed me with purest cacophony And my soul locked in flesh again was Now I stride towards ashen horizons As I breathe the undoing of life Unfolding my destination In a world where no hope lies Lyrics by Nimblkorg
Bitter is the taste of my contempt for those protecting their dreamscape; as such becoming foe of humanity and reason; for truth they can't endure Reality denied; like sick that fear the cure I paint myself with the blood of life so cruelly culled by the hands of Adam Armed with hate and malice; for millennia to come and with the vengeance of that which will be coldly laid to waste without regrets I can no longer sit back and watch whilst this abomination takes its course Unknowing was our kind, when he was made to be a demon in holy skin, whose light has blinded ever since and inspired foolishness for generations to come and last Life just runs its course; no entity to blame No swarm of spiteful locusts, to plunder in his holy name I've seen both past and future; the rape of life to be So I will do what must be done; revealed to me Visions of mass destruction amassing strength within my soul A cage to hold the fury of the grim works beyond my grasp I can see their temple of Lies appearing in front of me An empire of wrath and exile which was never supposed to be The glorious destruction of both religion and mankind... Edin lifeless in ashes lies Then I found myself in a courtyard A thousand eyes accusing me To rally the course of the future and more for countless new horrors the way made free There is no action without consequence As I freed myself from the clutches of guilt One cannot change what has been done The lesson learned alas my friends the battle’s never, ever, truly won! A man must fall to rise again. Lyrics by Skirge
Slowly – yet steadily the curtain for mankind falls Like chariots, unmanned, we ride straight towards the chasm (And) just as sure, as the wind blows our great walls will crumble We are drawn – like poison from a wound now only emptiness remains We have abandoned; cast our rights away We have run our course The final chapter; is closing near as vultures circle to feed Like chariots, unmanned, we ride straight towards the chasm This world shall fall! Lyrics by Skirge
Humankind has squandered the gifts that Mother gave A world of wealth and plenty; led to an early grave And paths to so-called 'progress' with blood of millions paved Utopia soon out of reach as swords grew mightier than the plough Such promise of superiority tell me - where are we now? Bloodletting a planet and culling our own lives Caught in the wake of our self-destruction Hail the glorious humankind – Hail! hail the splendour of our kind! Hail the glorious mankind! Lack of understanding; about responsibility The kind we are so eager to avoid Evermanipulating - the bringers of war and woe A travesty within the cosmic scale Our legacy is fraught with death Battle-ridden and paid for in blood True bringers of violence and flame A tyranny of intellect; a vile manifestation An error of the universe; harbingers of damnation As history repeats itself time upon time and still we fail to learn Unworthy of the air we breathe; unworthy of our pride unworthy of our power; so gleefully abused Our kind stands here accused; of squandering it all We've been weighed; and swiftly found unworthy Weighed and found unworthy; of it all Evermanipulating - the bringers of war and woe A travesty within the cosmic scale Squandered paradise... Lyrics by Skirge
A New Dawn 06:37
We are men of a thousand faces of the motionless mask underneath which a battle is raging and danger lies in losing grasp We must burn our boats; to leave behind the shores of our damnable past as we take a deep breath; through the fog that used to suffocate What's done is done; the dice were cast and the only path before us lies striding towards the riches of a new dawn But before we can relinquish the strangleholds of the past we must one last time revisit Those depths, where we hardly dare go Enter the mind! a bottomless pit of inspiration a bottomless pit of sorrow as well One must watch his steps not to fall in self-deception (Where) we once gave in To endless waves of melancholy The weight of the world and the torment of troubled souls There is no turning back now; to what once was As hardship transformed; the path has been forged Pain led to knowledge and insight So revel while you can; in the dusk of the past as a new dawn; grand; rejuvenous emerges through our hands Revel ye pity humans; in the dusk of the past as a new dawn emerges; emerges through our hands Therein lies hope; therein lies strength built on the ashes of the old world Therein lies life; therein lies meaning; therein lies strength as the sun of a new dawn engulfs the skies Lyrics by Skirge
