Armageddon (SWE)

Captivity & Devourment tracks

Lyrics

1. CAPTIVITY & DEVOURMENT

Through this window
I can see
The emptiness
Staring back at me

Capsular
Insulation
Coiled in
My machination

Oh it's enough to drive me insane
The solitary toil
Throwing my living remains through space
I'm mentally devoid

Go

Looking out
I can see
The years go by
Eternally

Oh its enough to drive me insane
The solitary toil
Throwing my living remains through space
I'm mentally devoid

Nothing left
To see inside
All was there
Has shriveled dry
Eaten by
My memories
Erased in a fevered mind

In a vacuum
In a vacuum
In a vacuum

Oh its enough to drive me insane
The solitary toil
Throwing my living remains through space
I'm mentally devoid




2. LOCKED IN

Become my eyes to see your world in foreign view
Become my skin a touch that's cold
And deep within reach further towards a beating heart incarceration
The chase has just begun

Predator of sanity
Assailant of vitality
Collect the burning soul
Collect the primal urge

Locked in
My consciousness
Confinement
Asylum

Locked in as gateways close
I'm shutting down to keep you out

Become my hands and touch your world of sub terrain
Become my veins push the liquid coursing through
Be slow my heart
Stave gluttonous savagery
Be slow my heart
Obstruct the lustful wrath

Predator of sanity
Assailant of vitality
Collect the burning soul
Collect the primal urge

Locked in
My consciousness
Confinement
Asylum

Locked in as gateways close
I'm shutting down to keep you out

World drained of living beauty eaten from the inside
Taken by a
Conscious force
Consumed




3. RENDITION

World of pain - universe of sorrow
Waiting for light - but there's no tomorrow
Eternal darkness, moving through the cosmos
A fish against the stream, I run against the grain

I walk inside
A generated mind
Visions I long to see
Renditions of pain

Can you see it, society in rapture
Of their infernal knowledge, hypnotised by their own flame
To live and die - at the same time
Reborn without a soul, without a conscious weight

I walk inside
A generated mind
Visions I long to see
Renditions of pain

A violent mind
Removed from life
Five billion years technology
Collect me into darkness

I walk inside
A generated mind
Visions I long to see
Renditions of pain
Pain
Pain
Pain




4. FUGITIVE DUST

Visions of a city maze suspend my vivid mind for days
Faces mirror not my own transmission complete, they are gone

Vacant
Abandoned
Deserted
Metropolis, leave me in vain

When the night falls upon this cratered crust
I see strange constellations
Consider them fugitive dust

Red star sets in a foreign sky
Corridor memory starve my eyes
Display the message I should see
Desertion fixation, my mystery

Vacant
Abandoned
Deserted
Metropolis, leave me in vain

When the night falls upon this cratered crust
I see strange constellations
Consider them fugitive dust

I find a purpose here
Among the shattered spheres
Empty world, left behind
In obscurity

When the night falls upon this cratered crust
I see strange constellations
Consider them fugitive dust




5. CONQUER

Descend to the depths of the unknown stale sunless cave
Daylight dissolve in the darkness surrounding
Enter the maze

Reveal to me projections of humanity
The will to be conqueror

Exhibitions of imitation
Plasmoid mimicry
Conjuration

Lead me to your cavernous theatre omnipresent domain
Show me all what you think that I am in the sub terrain

Reveal to me projections of humanity
The will to be conqueror

Deep underground gatherin vast illumination
World above, victim of full elimination

Invade my mind with memory of a past
I cannot comprehend

Deeper and deeper
Deceive me, destroy me
Electric controller
Sedate me with a fantasy of life

Reveal to me projections of humanity
The will to be conqueror




6. THANATRON

I've been watching you
Waiting for your time to come
Telescopic view
The end is near

Magnificent tantrum
Generate your fading light
Give in to yourself
The end is near

Crushing mass
Eat the light
Collapse into
Empty night
Release yourself
Just to be
Part of my
Great observation

Cryogenic
Infrared
Observatory is my home
I can see
Your helium
Deficiency
About to explode

Megalomania
Thanatron
I behold
Your demise
Years beyond
Your megalomania
In dying throes
Secrets of
Sudden life
Are mine to know

I've been watching you
Waiting for your time to come
Telescopic view
The end is near

8. THE WATCHER

Watch the moon
Crater face turning back
Against the light
Return with the message

Retreating shadows
Hide in the frozen sphere
Civilisation
Unseen, unheard

Watch the moon

They descend
Vapour trails gleaming vessels
Eternal night
Lunar light the only guide

They'll never find us
Trapped in the frozen sphere
To help or harm?
Their intent remains unknown

Seven ships
Navigate the sky
Hibernation
In isolation

Watch the moon
Crater face turning back
Against the light
Return with the message

They'll never find us
Trapped in the frozen sphere
To help or harm?
Their intent remains unknown




9. EQUALIZER

Open wide
The mouth of your civilization
Enter from the south
The kiss of swift sweeping death

Miasma clouds the air
Drink deep of your mortal libation
As blackened boils swell
You question your pontification

The great equalizer
In a shroud of pestilence
The great silencer of man

Is this real?

Masked men walk the streets
Poking at the heaps
Of yesterday's vital sons

The great equalizer
In a shroud of pestilence
The great silencer of man

What I've lost
What I've become
A seeker in the dark
Alone

Across the continents
A plague rides
On the backs of rats
Seeking a host
Warm, sweet
Social animals
So unaware
So unaware

The great equalizer
In a shroud of pestilence
The great silencer of man




10. GIANTS

Beyond the clouds
And all we know
Far past our comprehension
And earthly code

Conditions exist
Supporting life
At different points upon
The evolution unit

Chemical composition
Origins of life
Cosmogenesis

Dispersed among
The burning stars
Various levels
Simple and complex

Cellular birth
In primordial soup
Abiogenesis
Progress to the unknown

Chemical composition
Origins of life
Cosmogenesis

Chemical composition
Origins of life
Paints the face of its beast
