Revocation

Deathless tracks

Lyrics


1. A DEBT OWED TO THE GRAVE

A life extinguished in its prime
Summoned by the bell's strident chime
A bemoaning family laments
An Obolus the payment for a life that has been spent.

Silent and stiff
In rigor mortis' grip.

The die is cast
How quickly one's time can elapse
The ferryman will take you on your way
The coin's been passed
Empty is your hourglass
In a lightless chamber, the cold slab awaits.

Stained sheets, the darkest shade of crimson
Bloated by the onset of decomposition
No one will mourn over his death
An Obol forced inside your mouth before your final breath.

Silent and stiff
No tears shed for a life now forfeit.

A debt owed to the grave
A debt we all must pay.




2. DEATHLESS

Driven off course
Embrace entropy, a life of chaos
So many diverging paths with so many dead ends
An oath of blood
A pact of the initiated
For this life we've been condemned.

Free from the shackles of conformity
With reckless abandon we shun stability
Traversing day and night across expanses vast
We journey forth with the strength of the wind at our backs.

Deathless, the fire burns on and on
Ceaseless we ride into the dawn
No turning back we're too far gone
Deathless, the fire burns.

Night after night
Witness the decibel ritual
Sacrificing ourselves upon this altar of sin
Nocturnally devoted to the cause of blasphemy
Heathens awaiting the black mass to begin.

It was never a choice
No glory for madmen
The blood of the insane boils in our veins
Through all the trials and tribulations
Still we remain

Let's ride

Deathless, the fire burns on and on
Ceaseless we ride into the dawn
No turning back we're too far gone
Deathless, deathless.




3. LABYRINTH OF EYES

Eyes unblinking, affixed on us all
Feed the data stream
Glowing pupils like voracious maws
Stalking hungrily.

Purging us of every intimacy, undying is their vigilance
Rendition extraordinary, suppressing the dissidents.

Followed by orbs of glass
Watching our every move.

Trapped within their digital gaze
Ensnared in a binary web
Optic fibers growing like tendrils
Lurking overhead.

A maze of surveillance with no exit in sight
Surrounded by sentinels, nowhere to hide.

Confined in this labyrinth of eyes
Hunted and dehumanized.

Confined in this labyrinth of eyes
Hunted and dehumanized.




4. MADNESS OPUS

It beckons to me, a being of immense and terrifying power
A portal to a dimension of chaos lies just beyond my window
Hungrily it feeds, eagerly swallowing souls of thousands
I prepare this first movement to combat the unknown.

No one must know my secret
I'll take a life to keep it
I cannot rest until this vile demon is defeated
My nightly ritual
A captivated minstrel
This is the madness in which I dwell.

Curtains drawn, candles lit, contorted shadows cast
Staring into the maw of the void where infernal incisors endlessly gnash.

A blasphemous sonata echoes throughout the halls
Reverberations in the inter-dimensional gateway
The abomination demands an encore
A rhapsodist to this galactic titan enslaved.

Cosmic horror beyond infinite time
Entranced by the melodies perverted and sublime
A caprice for the beast
An amorphous entity's malign lullaby.




5. SCORCHED EARTH POLICY

Weaponized to neutralize
Always on patrol
Under constant surveillance
Their need for control
Automaton gaining sentience
A glitch in the system
Raining down hellfire on innocent civilians.

Now we're all just dots on a screen, just blips on a radar
The human race is obsolete, total extermination.

Cold and calculated
Prowler of the skies
Ceaseless in its devotion
The ever watchful eye
All organic life forms will perish in their wake
There will be no survivors on our judgement day.

Now we're all just dots on a screen, just blips on a radar
The human race is obsolete, total extermination.

All the fail-safes have failed
Welcome to the new regime
The only law of the land
A scorched earth policy.

Scorched earth policy.

All the fail-safes have failed
Welcome to the new regime!




6. THE BLACKEST REACHES

Confined in darkness
Where light dares not tread
The sphere lies suspended and undisturbed
I curse that fateful day within that foul old church
The day that this curse was first incurred.

What lies inside the blackest reaches of one's mind?
Primal and divine, an entity unbound by all space and time.

...And so the visions came again
Blackened vortices spiralling with no end
Staring from the shining trapezohedron
The three lobed burning eye.

What lies inside the blackest reaches of one's mind?
Primal and divine, an entity unbound.

I see the darkness in the light
Now the two become one [2x]
Enthroned upon the seat of ultimate chaos
He who cannot be named.

Infinite
Omnipotent




7. THE FIX

A staged play years in the making
Arm your scapegoat then flip the switch
Thousands march towards beckoning graves
While profits are harvested hand over first.

A system designed with controlling intent cannot be changed from within
The illusion of choice, a coin with one side
The fix is in.

Beholden to their corporate masters, politicians privatizing genocide
Condolences offered by the same who pulled the trigger with unblinking eyes

Sociopathic parasites licking their fingers clean
How many times must history repeat?




8. UNITED IN HELOTRY

Content within your inner prison
Divisive deadening of all the senses.

Rank and file
Marching endlessly
United in mental helotry

Solidarity destroyed
What incentive is left to resist?
Spite will have to suffice
Your apathy turns my knuckles white.

Starved faculties of imagination
You gorge on banalities then ask for seconds.

Rank and file
Marching endlessly
United in helotry

No sight beyond your blinders
Devoted to this beaten path.

Solidarity destroyed
What incentive is left to resist?
Spite will have to suffice
Your apathy turns my knuckles... white!

Rank and file
Marching endlessly
United in helotry.

MARCH! MARCH!

10. WITCH TRIALS

Paranoia, their leery whispers feed the hysteria
Accusations, a vile covenant in service of Satan
Forced to confess then condemned to die
The vulgar Christians demanding a sacrifice
To a God that never was and never will be... never will be!

A plea for sanity falls upon deafened ears
A call for judgement as their execution draws near
Sentenced to death, all twenty and eight
Hung by their necks, a shallow grave their final resting place.

No salvation at the end of the hangman's noose
No mercy for the coven of the cloven hoof
He who refuses to confess to his crimes will meet a torturous end
Pressed slowly to death under metal and stone, a dire fate for the condemned... for the condemned!

Malleus malficarum
That foul and ancient tome
Hammer of the witches
Lost souls forever roam.




11. SWORN TO THE BLACK

Spawn of the ever rolling abyss
Ever espousing unluminous
Charred soul - Burned at rebirth
Quest not save the death of the sun

Repulsed by the light
Heart pumping ice
So cold to this world
Reclude until the summoning
Sworn to the black

Our father begotten, not made
Before all legends of man
Receive my loyalty, my offering
In my veins; the blood of the ancient brood
Summon me

Burning inside, I feel the call
Blood of the Ancient Ones now boils
At war - War with the race
Father rise and the world be one

Repulsed by the light
No feeling for life
Drained of my being
I lie dead but still I'm sworn
