Damned and Mummified tracks

Lyrics


1. THROUGH THE TRASH DARKLY

Ankle deep in trash
Garbage in your veins
Through the dark backward
Slowly go insane
On the stage again
greasy matter hair
Sallow faces grimace
Blank and painful stares
Back in the dump by day
Corpse found in the grime
A lick across the chest
The taste is foul but fine
Meanwhile fingers grow from your back
Then into a hand that can grasp
Then lastly emerges an arm
A freak shows in this world bizarre

Exploitation show
Extra limb the whore
But when the dream is done
Return to trash once more




2. EMPTY HORIZON

The unhealing wound
Existing only to consume
Eat flesh, swallow life
It's inside of you

Inherently unpure
Not of this world
Ancient conscious drives
Insistent holocaust

March onward into empty horizons
March onward into empty horizons
Heavy the air, Armageddon dawns
We march, we rot
On empty horizons




3. SWALLOW THE VENOM

Swallow the venom
On the arctic plains of my frozen soul
It's hard to survive, to remain alive
So dead inside, deathtrippin' scenes
Sometimes it cuts each time I breath

Encased in ice my spirit filled with frigid bile
Freezing point, travelling toward the poison fog
Seeking heat from fatal liquids proved to kill
I'll burn at any cost
Swallow the venom
On a burn, watching lava devour the cold
Lost in a frost, blood on the snow
Suicidal jump through the psychedeathic door
Into the mighty flame

Swallow the venom




4. CAVERNS OF HADES

Come feast on the hells that your head brings
Travel into the black
Bursting brain dripping blood into goblets
Afraid that you just might crack
It's too late, you can't turn back now
It's clearly over and done
The deals made, your soul is frayed
The tortures just begun

Down below your deepest nightmare
Into fields of flame
Catacombs filled with flesh and bones
Convulse and writhe in pain
Death ride, you're burning inside
Hellish visions come true
Last sleep, into Hades you creep
It's only torment you're due
Blood falls down in cascades from walls
Time to go down below
Bleeding bells ringing two thousand hells
Into a death dream you're thrown

Blazing from inside
Salvation denied
Nightmare scenes are real
Before madness kneel
Cast your eyes to doom
Here in the killing room
And as you choke on blood
The next door opens up
You'll never be sane again




5. THE DEAD ARE SMILING AT ME

We watched the bombs come down
Then we rolled into town
The dead is what we found
Greeted by the dead

The dead are smiling at me
Face rots, exposing the teeth
Eye sockets black, empty
I wonder if these holes can see
They all look strangely happy
The dead are smiling at me
The faces have burned away
The dead are smiling at me
Cut the chains
Break down the gates
Nothing left alive
Greeted by the dead




6. TWILING BLEEDS

Darken down and fall
Your chance, your death
Feel the beyond call
Last blood, last breath
Road of skulls you walk
From time, from mind
To dead souls you talk
Just rot you'll find
The hearse's wheels
Roll a dozen more times
The coffin drones its song
Your blood, it leaks darkly away
Your minds derailed
It won't be long

Just desperation for the end
Is all you can conceive
The lid is shut on your casket now
As twilight starts to bleed

Memories turn into dust
As comas kiss sinks deep
Maggots find your shattered mind
Fall into final sleep




7. LUST FOR THE GRAVE

Lust for the grave

All I see is black and torturous
Darkness take me
Brain is rotten, sewage in my blood
Darkness free me
Alcohol and drugs, obscurity
Call the reaper
Only in the coffin I'll be free
Death my keeper
Moving toward the unlight, fate is sealed
Doom is waiting
Total darkness soon to be revealed
Fill the casket
To the graveyard, never coming back
Feed the maggots

Make me lust for death
Show me the world
And I'll take my last breath
Make me lust for death
Take me to the end
It's all that's left




8. THE DREAM IS DEAD

The shadow of death is always near
I see it clear, there is comfort there
Death is life as life is death
Sufferance eternal, sufferance immortal
The well has run dry, the crops have died
Empty, hollow, today and tomorrow
No hope for a better life
Don't dare to dream
The dream is dead

No hope, the dream is dead
No future, the dream is dead

No hope, no future
The shadow of death is following
It wakes me, it speaks to me
It says it has much work to do
It's coming for me, it's coming for you
The rains have stopped, the cattle have died
Then comes the frost, the all is lost
When the working poor can't work no more
Don't dare to dream
The dream is dead




9. DAMNED AND MUMMIFIED

Born in a straightjacket set on fire
Doomed from the start, submerged in blackened mire
Set the burning fuse of my body and mind
Lift back my skull where crimson nightmares reside

Visions of desolation
And wings of plague
Morbid fascinations
And seething hate
I'm damned and mummified it's true
The moon is red
Giving madness more than it's due
Rot fills my head
Gutwrenching animosity
Turned inside out, I can't be free
My grave gets deeper every day
There's only death itself to pay

Strangling on every breath
Deranged, derailed, obsessed
Wrapped up in skin
Preserved for life
Birthed in damnation
Condemned to die




10. INFERNO OF PERVERSE CREATION

My blood is fire
My mind is black
Pain burning bright
Time to explode
All the sickness inside
Tortured beyond comprehension
Rotten wounds abscess and boil
Stitches about to burst
And the ground ripped wide, the skies split forth
The souls broke free as the blood-soaked sea
Fingertips like the caverns of hell

Vaginal opening poised to the sky
Breeding madness and anarchy from the unknown
Cranium cracking with grey desecration
Black hallucinogenic trip spurn elation

And the ground ripped wide, the skies split
Forth and the rain was bloody and smiling rage
The souls broke free as the blood-soaked sea
Fingertips like the caverns of hell
Vaginal opening poised to the sky
Breeding madness and anarchy from the unknown
Cranium cracking with grey desecration
Black hallucinogenic trip spurn elation
The tombs of hell deep dark disease
Torn into hunger and rabid thirst
Screaming nightmare, minds collide
Devils cum as angels die

Doom from the beyond, pain from above
Death from below, mercy in flames
Red crucifixion, eyes see but rot
Volcanic death scenes, hellfire remains

Thorns thrust in deep
Horns crimson stained
Scorched ruined world
All die in pain




11. TATTOO COLLECTOR

Saw a tattoo on a pretty young thing
A piece of art on her back
I don't think she understood
When I said I have the perfect frame for that
Tattoo hunter, tattoo collector
I've got a wall of Kiss tattoos
And a room full of just Ozzy
From Black Sabbath to Randy Rhoads
I've got a space saved for his smiling knees
Tattoo hunter, tattoo collector
I've got lots of human skin
Covered in beautiful art
I'd like to add you to the collection
But first I must take you apart

Tattoo hunter, tattoo collector
I've got lots of human skin
Covered in beautiful art
I'd like to add you to the collection
But first I must take you apart
Tattoo hunter, tattoo collector




12. TIRADE OF HALLUCINATIONS

Implode into darkness
Leave this world to die
Voices of deception
A belt of terror in time
Images of the sick
Demented thoughts
Tweak your sight
Unable to get your fill
Veins running dry

Indulged in mind manipulations
A tirade of hallucinations

Tap the black vein
As it pierces your skull
Watch maggots fall
From its hole
Dripping flesh from bone
A hell created on my own
