Track Name: Vigil
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Extinction Rate
Our idols will ignore the screams for our preservation
This sickness erodes our purpose

His mind has sacrificed the memories it once held inside
Their blackened tongues and their gestures consumed him alive

The abomination will rise again

Fuck this place
I'll breathe a sigh of relief when everything stops breathing
The sound of screams will all fall silent onto my deaf ears
We had it all but we squandered it away
What did we gain?
We are the waking dead

And tonight my resurrection will signal the fucking end of the race

Show me your teeth you coward
Four fucking years you've been on my mind
I want blood for redemption, one body is never enough
Internally bleeding as the blade slithers towards your neck
Suspense is the distance between blade and flesh

This world will be my hunting ground
I will no longer remain dormant
Torment, they cry out in pain, their faces contort in agony

My eyes begin to dilate, my hands shake and my breath escapes
Memories begin to be erased
Trapped in my mind with no retreat
As I begin to lose my mind my body is rotting from the inside
Deep within my skin they hide, demons of angelic design

The abomination will rise again
Track Name: Lycan
Am I even human?
I've become a monster
Am I even human?

I'd like to see what lies underneath the skin
By now the virus is rampant through my veins
Was I manufactured from a cancer cell?
Or is my life a reflection that stares back at me?

Stale and weak flesh sack of bones and shit
Should I slit my throat and put an end to all of it?
The ones who did this to me surely can’t be human
They inject my mind with images of torture

Weak flesh sack of bones and shit
Should I just slit my throat and put an end to all of it?

Bones extending, conscience fleeting, replaced by my appetite
The night regurges the foulest creatures
They feast on flesh of the weak and blind
Embodiment of the pain I've suffered
Eviscerated from your cunt to your face
A stark reminder the world is ending
I am the anti-christ

At last the moon shall bloom
It’s gentle light consumes me

Where do you go when the sky collapses?
Where do you fucking hide, when the very thing that keeps you alive is the thing that's killing you inside?
The sickness lies and waits
It takes control of me
I am that unhinged, insecure motherfucker that’s coming down your street

A new born mentality will claim my every waking thought
Entombed within a shell of never ending hatred
The cycle will not end until their blood covers my hands
The world will be reborn through mass global bloodshed

At the end of this life I will find home

The hunger has enslaved me
I see no release
Trapped for eternity

The hunger has enslaved me
The thirst will forever call
Track Name: Red Wedding
Sealed in place, a cold tune plays
An omen for wolves who whimper
Screams fill the sky

Their movements so sporadic, yet flames don't dare to flicker
A king is forced to witness his betrothed, stabbed to death
Cold blades part the womb open, the unborn prince spills out
His army reduced to meat they feasted on

I am not love
I am not salvation
I bring the stench of death

My name will be retold in their blood

All children will be crippled
Your crops will yield no growth
The world is plunged in darkness as the sun refuses to show
A king is forced to witness his dynasty turn to ash
His throne is now a pyre his people will roast upon

On my own accord I've unsurfaced my parasitic ways
I am the burden on your kingdom of princes
I am the burden on your kingdom
I am the burden on your people

Sealed in place, a cold tune plays
Blood will stain the earth for eras
Hope lost in a mother's eyes
Unveil steel, all men must die
Sealed in place, a cold tune plays
An omen for wolves who whimper
Sealed in place, a cold tune plays
Our great leader has become a martyr

Mass graves only two feet deep and incinerate the bodies
Am I a masochist because I find so much joy in this?
Infatuated as the skin is peeling off their spines
Dissected and still breathing, your insides are on display
Track Name: Oculus
Where were all of the shepherds when the sky was devoured?

There lies a sickness embedded deep within this plutocracy that reaps the benefits of our sorrows
All for monetary gain
Incarcerate the populace

They will try to distort your view
Their love for power precedes the need for our race to survive

We are all condemned
They will bury us alive
All will be condemned
They will bury us alive
Monuments constructed by the oppression that they symbolise

All will be condemned by the hypocrisy
They hold justice over your head like a crown of thorns for eternity
All will be condemned by the hypocrisy
They hold justice over your head like a crown of thorns

We are the first of a brand new era
Our hands will forever be blood-stained

They imprisoned our minds
But chains rust over time
When we find what we seek
These shackles will break

We are trapped in an ignorant sleep
Their walls cave in under the weight

Shepherd the weak into their own containment
Weave the web of corrupt policies
Tax their resources to keep them all preserved
We are nothing more than cattle to be slaughtered

We are trapped in an ignorant sleep
Their walls cave in under the weight
Empowerment of the people returns the light to a darkened world in suffering
We've been struggling to breathe

Too long have we been held down and profited from
This race will bare scars on the earth
But when the last tree falls they'll realise that we can’t consume currency
We will be the victims of a corporate genocide

We are the first of a brand new era
We are the first of a brand new era of corrupt supremacy and reign
We are the first of a brand new fucking era of corrupt supremacy and reign

Mankind will be the unravelling of it’s own thread
