Track Name: Cyclical Denomination
Primordial building blocks
Contains both mater and energy
Cosmological linear line
Past lives extended, etched in time

Heritage denomination
A common trait for universal fate
Forever expanding
Propagating from a singularity

Reborn, rejuvenated with life
And purpose upon my death
Absorbed into the fiber
Attaching memories
To merge into our own

Savage grotesque consumption
Meandering on the insane
The uncontrollable lust to survive
Digesting to separate
Internally gestating whole

Vivid memories contained
Entwined in the fabric of life
Gormandizing the flesh
Flooding dreams of another time flash inside

Astronomical energy
Subconsciously growing and expanding
Concentric field identified
The event horizon expands but hides

Past lessons left unlearned
Discarded as dogmas and delusions
Will the erudite succumb
To the trammels of submission

What should we derive?
Balance is redefined
Blindly we toil
Ignoring our own insignificance
Track Name: Verdant Decay
preserving ancient objects underground, unsung creatures
ecosystem dependent, accumulating change, effects unnoticed

a hideous mass of mortality
becomes a child of the dust
...doomed to perdition

amidst mouldering leaves, conduct this pious spectacle
that which dreameth not, scattered about it's earthly couch

bed-fellow of the worm
sleepeth beneath the sod

gnawn by the cankering throngs
their untold millions
flit beneath the moon
clenching the jaws of the grave

obscured by the dunnest shades of life
malignant, and cleansing, harmonious verdant decay

her minions move as one, in the shadows
blindly gorging on flesh and marrow

doomed to perdition...

a hideous mass of mortality
becomes a child of the dust
Track Name: Preternatural Remains
a hidden hand
tugs at the strings
the ignorant gall
the effrontery of it all

such philistines
wont be admired
through fortitude
we cleanse the mires

dull light streams through the hazy scene
dims the procession the mood serene

the dead retain their perfection unlike the living
a foreboding wrath makes dim with woe the auspicious nature... of this age

oracle speaks the call from beyond
shimmering linens, vespers foregone

vaporous wisps blow, through a cuprous haze
unctuous below, preternatural remains

accomplished profligates, amiable infidels

instilling a bellicose state of misath- ropical tyranny
fulfilling the propheciesed conspira- torical decievery

dull light streams through the hazy scene
dims the procession the mood serene... oh the reeling world

vaporous wisps blow, through a cuprous haze
unctuous below, preternatural remains
Track Name: The Secret Doctrine
Acquiesce to the overmaster, sapping initiative
Caring naught for the wails of the agonized
Congenital enfeeblement for the mangled dying and swollen dead

From which every dogma became materialized
Secret teachings, chicanery, life precedes form
The eternal first cause is latent in spirit
And matter from the beginning creative energy

No deification
Higher than prodigious truth
To defy it would be to

Degrade its energy
Thus the great cosmogony
Undermine the philistines
To restore to entropy

Self existence, tribulation
Manifested, promulgation

No deification
Higher than prodigious truth
To defy it would be to

Degrade its energy
Thus the great cosmogony
Undermine the philistines
To restore to entropy

The secret doctrine, eternal verities
Archaic teachings, of a sectarian

From which every dogma became materialized
Secret teachings, chicanery, life precedes form
The eternal first cause is latent in spirit
And matter from the beginning creative energy
Track Name: Pathobiont Deformity
Unperceived by the host
Ecosystem affluent, perforate
Dead, decaying, organic
Embryonic fluid, Festers
Beneath the skin

Burrowing, flesh cavity
Pathobiont Deformity

Subsidiary tissue, the local infection has spread
Impregnating cells, Manipulation apex is reached
Larva, spawn, metamorphosis
Colonizing to the fibers

Subsidiary tissue, the local infection has spread
Impregnating cells, Manipulation apex is reached
Domicile, terrain, squandered
Coagulation atrophy

Subsidiary tissue, the local infection has spread
Impregnating cells, Manipulation Reached
Pathobiont Deformity

Global control, attacking and secreting
Surface rotting, infection dwells submerged

Depravity near the end
Incubation exhausted, secretion
Flowing, rotten, flesh
Pungent stale aroma, Precedes
Untimely death

Coalescing ends abruptly
Pathobiont Deformity

Host is left a rotting shell
Nesting propagation
Continuing the flow once more
To future generations
Track Name: Auto-Icon
Posthumous protest preserved by posterity
Posthumous protest preserved, an auto-icon

Discarding this infected life with ease a lifeless corpse
Rank in the liquid of decomposition
Attains the abdicated throne

Appallingly transformed
Enigmatical look
Formidable radiance
Pernicious power, of his eye

What Prometheus do we free?
Obviating the fear of mortality
Life stultified through obscenities
Under the heavy sway of death

Appallingly transformed
Enigmatical look
Formidable radiance
Pernicious power, of his

Sarcophagus, displaying a deep cadaverous blueness
Death does not kill, to struggle in life is to enforce its will

Incomprehensible anomalies
Ever accursed, amounting to idolatry
With telescopic scrutiny
No expostulation, no repudiation

Appallingly transformed
Enigmatical look
Formidable radiance
Pernicious power, of his eye

What Prometheus do we free?
Obviating the fear of mortality
Life stultified through obscenities
Under the heavy sway of death

Appallingly transformed
Enigmatical look
Formidable radiance
Pernicious power, of his eye

This tragic muse in banality
So humbly enthroned postmortem
To benefit posterity
A posthumous protest preserved

Posthumous protest preserved by posterity
Posthumous protest preserved, an auto-icon
