Track Name: Cause and Effect
In the stark and cold of the day, ideals fail
And under constant aggravations, madness grows

When the breaking point is reached, the mind snaps
And hell is visited here this day

Violence of the primitive, visited upon the present
Primal fist to flesh, screams and thrashing
The onlookers so horrified to see such a display
And they take you down and lock you up, for being the way you’re made

When the breaking point is reached, the mind snaps
And hell is visited here this day
Track Name: Narcissist
Narcissist
Worship yourself
Have no shame, only an ego
Narcissist
Take what you want
Anything in your power to use and manipulate

Twisted mind from warped perspective
Bend the things you wish to your will
Layers of denial reinforce your God complex
But your pride will be your undoing

Power, the use of influence
Intimidation and violence
Commit all to get what you want
Become all that you are
Screaming psychopath
You are the height of entitlement

Narcissist
You are your own god
Surround yourself with disciples
Narcissist
All people, your tools
To you, there are no laws
Track Name: Succubus
Self-serving whore
Bred by a thankless world
Think yourself so far above
Yet there you are down on your knees
Sucking moneys cock

Transparent motivations of a gold-digging bitch
You will suffer degradation to keep where you are

You would just take and take forever if I let you
I’m not even a man to you, I’m just a means to an end

Short sighted and foolish
You receive so much grief
And you deserve every bit
You think the world is out to get you
But you’re sitting in your own shit
Track Name: Hidden Knowledge
In eternal freezing, in far off ancient mountains
The realm of midnight and permafrost, deep in the wild
Beyond the reach of human touch, deep within the ice
Lie deep secrets, long forgotten, held in perpetual stillness

Knowledge is power
Knowledge is kept
A knowledge too vast for man
Knowledge in slumber
Knowledge awakening
Conscious thought incarnate

Forbidden ancient wisdom turned into form
Inspiring legends lasting through the ages
To know such things will turn a man into a god
Futures rewritten when it comes into the light
Track Name: Seduction
Come to me, oh come to me
You who would never die
Drink from the chalice and be cleansed
Give me your soul, give me your all
Without any hesitation
God needs you to come again and again

Before man, before heaven
Make yourself ready
Before Hell, before Satan
You will pay your penance

Commit
To the role
Commit
To the seduction

Blessed to be, so blessed to be
A living sacrifice
To be offered again and again
Your flesh must be punished
Sins must be paid for
Get down on your knees and worship
Track Name: Delusion
Assigning patterns to existence doesn’t give it meaning
There’s no correlation, other than that which you assume

No matter your walk of life, you end up in the ground
There is no larger meaning, you’re going to feed worms
No amount of distraction or delusion will change your fate
Dead as fuck, six feet down in the grave

Life is pointless
Gods are a lie
Just monkeys making toys, doing tricks
You’re fucking pointless
You’re going to die
Any other line of thought is just a delusion

Work so hard to stay fit and to be rich
Slavery suits you well, such a good little bitch
A few imagined values, and suddenly you’re above
Looking down your nose from behind the bars of your cage
Track Name: Avarice
Bloated leeches, sucking blood until you burst
Feasting and gorging at the hemorrhage, never satiated
Selfish squirming parasites, writhing in exaltation
But when the beast falls, you care not

But we can see you now
For what you really are

I will be no slave to your avarice
I am no willing sheep, just to feed your greed
I will be no slave to your avarice
You are no master to me you fucking worm

Think yourself one of the chosen
Gods lucky few, deserving of anything you wish
Your supposed open ended manifest destiny
Will end abruptly, as history repeats
Track Name: Cold is the Void
I feel the darkness within me
The Christians call it the devil
I feel the blackness reaching out
I will not tolerate the false light
I have embraced the darkness
Here I know true freedom
I have become the empowered
And I have become the strong

Can you hear the song of oblivion?
Dissonant symphonies of madness
Stare into the maw of the void
And embrace your impending ceasing to exist

Is anything you believe based in fact?
Has anything ever been proven to you?
Have you ever felt completely alone?
Are you aware of your own insignificance?
Track Name: The Serpentine Offering (Dimmu Borgir cover)
My decent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair
My decent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

Evoked and entertained through centuries
Wrathful and sullen--dormant still
The ferocity pervades everywhere
Waiting to be released at last

Hear my offering
Ye bastard sons and daughters
Share my sacrifice
Share my sacrifice

My decent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair
My decent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

My decent is the story of everyman
My decent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair
My decent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

Reconcile not with the fear of the snake
But embrace it as your own
Inject its venom into your veins
And replant the seed that gives growth
Still shrouded in mystery
Until you arise above perception
A veil of ignorance is in motion
Continuing throughout generations

A veil of ignorance is in motion
Continuing throughout multiple generations
Let me be the one that deliver you from the deceit
And back into perfect accordance with the laws of nature

The snake is notoriously tempting
But the snake is fair
What is worse than not knowing?
To live or disappear?

The ferocity pervades everywhere
Waiting to be released at last

Hear my offering
Ye bastard sons and daughters
Share my sacrifice
Share my sacrifice
