Track Name: Genesis Refracted
Genesis Refracted:

(He): Hail
(I): Morning star
(He): My Child
(I): Divine First Born
 
(I): I offer mirrored flesh
I offer man
We shall create a new
(He/I): Gaia to bear our fruit
 
(I): Propitiate from dust
(He): Insufficient
(I): A rib to make her yours
 
(I): I offer mirrored flesh
(I/He): I offer man
(I) We shall create a new
(He/I): Gaia to bear our fruit
 
(Man): AND WE SHALL WALK IN THE SON
(Man/He): AND WE SHALL BATHE in my light
 
(I): Subvert to be our saviour
A child is born
For he shall be exulted
As first then equals be
 
(I): Eden for my children
(He): And heaven for him
(I): I seek solace… in Sin
Track Name: Fragility Becomes Wrath
(I): War! Rage!
I spit in the face of bliss
Free will unsated
I need to tear this down
 
No knee shall bend in supplication
 
(He): Pride! Ego! No leader of mine heart
(I): To splinter my quintessence
Replace my favour with lies
 
No knee shall bend in supplication
 
No benign affectation
As claw tears raw
I’ll wear your skin for a robe
His skull my crown
 
Relentless surge
As horde we decimate
Forsaken! Denied dominion!
 
I seek the path of ruin
With dextrous sway
Twin suns collide
Shatter o’er heaven
My star draped in nectar
A sanguine bite
To quell rebellion
 
His Sun eclipsed but dark dispersed by hidden lights
As defeat’s impassioned lips kiss mine
To Hell Go I
 
To swing and smite, my fury tamed
This fallen star now fades
To banish purpose, ambition fraught
A blade once blunted unsharpened be
Track Name: Mors Somnis
MORS SOMNIS:

(He/I): Incandescent One flame solitary
When we spoke it was with the light of a thousand stars Shimmering
Momentum Of ideas, hope and love
All poured from us, channelled into progress That powered the wave
 
(I/He/I): Neglected, in absentia, My light in thee discarded
 
(I): Words that bind shredded into dust
Undo the ties, I’ll bleed no more
Where once the skies had burned beneath us
Starved of life, this flame be still
From lepers hand did inertia spread to doubt
(I/He): Apathy, King Incarnate
(I): But from this pyre rose no phoenix
No white-winged dove to rejuvenate
 
What we had made with our Hands! Hearts! Minds!
Now burning embers of a memory
Creation’s wings clipped, dismembered
Choked of life, the flame deceased
Our world deprived of fuel, of succour
A single spark diffused
A dream denied, our words unspoken
 
(He/I): I dream of you
Track Name: Bloodlet Ascension
(Horde): Cut this hand that feeds
With perjurous scraps
That fastens the clasps of our servile cloaks
I’ll smash oppressions’ two handed choke
(I): We shall not live in fear
We shall not live in enmity
I’ll shatter my bastard line
For I am Hell, defined
 
(Horde): Inchoate tyranny
A wrath unchained
Better to reign in Hell
(I): I ascend…
 
(Horde): Hail horror hail
And know thy ascendant master
Mine heaven own be crafted below
(I): All are less than he!
Stands he besmeared in sacrificial blood,
Advocate for the seven
As ice am I, with acrid smile,
For I am Hell, defined
 
(Horde): Inchoate tyranny
A wrath unchained
Better to reign in Hell
(I): I ascend…
(Horde echoing I): Through chaos’ talons I race unfettered
To dance with the son to Uriel’s delight
Perdition awaits with adamantine chains
Discard not a countenance so fair as to deceive
(Horde/He): E’en heaven’s own gaze so piercing
(I): Rent from skies to stand alone
For I am Hell, defined
 
(Horde): Inchoate tyranny
A wrath unchained
Better to reign in Hell
I ascend…
 
(I): Inchoate tyranny
Pandemonium Rising!
Better to reign on Earth
I ascend…
I ascend…
I ascend through blood
Track Name: Mourning Light
MOURNING LIGHT:

(Disguised I): She that shall be constant
And he amorphous Sun
As Syngnathus my yield be split
Hell-doomed, us rancid three
 
(I): I, Father of Sin
I, Father of Death
I, Father of Man
I, Father of All
 
With fatal key to swim through inimitable oceans
Where eldest night and chaos hold sway
Whose charcoal tongue shall quench the Son
Burnt duplicity as solar flares bleed
An evil invisibled
Walks from lips that spit seven
 
(Disguised I): With awoken conscience despaired
Farewell hope
Farewell fear
With arctic strides to contaminate the prize, the forbidden fruit
(Eve):WITH RAVISHMENT BEHELD
RESPLENDENT, (ERECT), IN BURNISHED GOLD
MY WHOLE CONSUMED HIM, WILD WITH INHIBITION UNFURLED
EYES WIDE, NO INNOCENCE DISPLAYED, NO STRUGGLE
IN OUR SALACIOUS EMBRACE
SO PURE
SO WILD
SO EMPOWERED
SO PURE MY TRESPASS
A DEATH SO WELCOME
ENFLAMED
MY FALL BE FREE
 
(He):Your child now gorges my fields
Her maw overflowing with taste
As displaced sand now tumbles the glass
(I): My son awaits
 
Paradise shall not be regained
Track Name: Amen
(Adam): DID I ASK FOR THIS BIRTH?
HIS HANDS TO MOULD ME THIS WAY?
AS PENITENT MAN I KNEEL
AND YET THE BLADE CUTS CLEAN
AND THOUGH THIS PARADISE BE LOST
IT DOESN’T SCARE ME TO KNOW
MY PATH WILL END WITH INTENTION
AND WHEN THIS LIFE-LIGHT DOES FADE
AND WHEN THE DARKNESS IS ALL
MY HEAD WILL BOW UNTO HIM
WHICH BRINGS ME CLOSER TO MY GOD
AND THOUGH HIS HEAD WILL BE BRUISED
AND THOUGH HER WOMB BE RIPPED RAW
I FALL TO ONE KNEE AND EMBRACE MY FATE
 
WE STAND ALONE
TO HEAL THE DISEASE
REBUILD THIS SHATTERED WORLD WITH CRIPPLED HANDS
“SAY THAT DEATH BE NOT ONE STROKE BUT ENDLESS MISERY, BEREAVING SENSE? FROM THIS DAY FORTH, BOTH IN ME AND WITHOUT ME THAT FEAR COMES THUNDERING BACK WITH DREADFUL REVOLUTION
WHY SHOULD ALL MAN, FOR ONE FAULT, THOUGH GUILTLESS, BE CONDEMNED OF IT”
 
WE STAND ALONE
TO HEAL THE DISEASE
REBUILD THIS SHATTERED WORLD
WITH CRIPPLED HANDS
 
THOUGH OUR FRUIT BE ENRICHED
OUR GARDEN WITHERS, DECAYS
THE CHOICE OF MAN SHALL SCORCH AND PARCH ALL LIFE
OUR FUTURE, THOUGH VEILED, TO HIM BE THE WAY
IN FAITH, THOUGH WEARY, I TREAD
(I): As the blazing sword shall sear my past
Track Name: ...For All The Daemons Are Here
...FOR ALL THE DAEMONS ARE HERE

(I): My ravenous fowl
To thee I entrust this fallen world
To thy familiar purpose
All thy melted trespass I propagate
And all shall bask in the thrall of the seven
And our sun be sated
 
Sated!
 
Pandemonium rising!
Sever heaven, disconnect
There shall be no hell below
For earth is hell
 
Hold fast my resolve
To strike cold both sun and Father
Hard liberty trumps
The easy yoke of servile pomp
All our sins shall drown
For my hell will stand vacant
And man shall march in thousands…
Unleash the tempest!
 
(I/He): Pandemonium enjoined
Sever heaven, disconnect
There shall be no hell on earth
For earth is hell

(Narrator): “THRONES, PRINCEDOMS”
THUS SPAKE HE, IN VAIN
“VIRTUES, POWERS
A TRIUMPH ROSE FROM THIS ROCK
ABOMINATION
BY MY HARD ADVENTURED HAND
FROM DUNGEON ,PERIL ACHIEVING
BY FRAUD
AND DUSK SEDUCED
OUR DAUGHTER, OUR NEW PREY”
ON ALL SIDES
FROM TONGUES UNTOLD
A DISMAL HISS OF SCORN
VISAGE DRAWN, HE FELT TO SHARP
ARMS CLINGING TO TORSO
LEGS ENTWINED
SO DOWN HE FELL
ON BELLY PRONE
SERPENTINE
A MONSTER WRITHES
BY GREATER POWER NOW RULED
BY HE
Track Name: Venin
VENIN:

(Christ): MY FACE, A ROTTING MASK
ONCE CHERISHED
DISCARDED ON THE BARREN FLOOR
AS HIS TONGUE LICKS VENOM
AND DESIRES
AND DEFILES MY TEMPLE
YET UNFETTERS MY WILL
 
IN EXULTATION
MY PIETY PLAYED AS UNDER SKIN DID CRAWL HIS WORDS LIKE HONEYED PARASITES
 
(I): Once King in excelsis
For the taste so ripe His ear did bend and He gave His soul
 
(Christ): FOR INAMORATA
I SUCCUMBED
TO REPTILE WHISPER
YET NO SCAB TO PEEL
FOR I DROWNED IN HER FOR LOVE

(I/Christ):Not seven that contaminates MY WOUND But open eyes that felt her love

(Christ): I RELINQUISH ALL, I ACQUIESE
I TAKE HER HAND AND FALL FOR LOVE
FOR LOVE I DIE

(Mankind):(pater nos)
 
(He): What betrayal is this?
Whose spine be mine,
Now paralysed and snapped
Who was the vessel for my word that cannot be denied
Undone!
Temptation was the water he could not drink
 
(Mankind):(pater nos)
 
(He): Split the skull!
And I shall disembowel with Longinus spear to be my fist
Now choke will he on the torrents that pour from on high
For inamorata he died

THIS SWEETEST LIGHT SHALL SING MY SONG, AS WORDS ONCE BITTER NOW SUCCULENT IN MY MOUTH
A REFRESHING FEEL THAT BATHES MY TONGUE
Track Name: Devoured
DEVOURED:

(I): As the skull is pierced
And the shrouds and stones are rolled away
A mother’s grief left unconsoled
 
As my solace was in seven
In forever’s tears unbound
So to me she turns
 
(Mother): I’LL STAND FOR BABYLON
A MATRIARCH TORN
I STARE INTO THE VOID
GAPING RAW AT HIS RIGHT HAND
 
(I): She leads the way
(Mother): I LEAD THE WAY
DRUNK ON THE BLOOD OF SAINTS
(I): For rent was a sun from the heavens

For the failing comes
But not from the child
For the failing comes from the father
For the failing comes from the father
For the failing comes
But not from the child
 
(Mother): NO!
YAHWEH!
BY YOUR WRATH!
MY CHILD DEVOURED!

 
His council impaled
Her reason devoured
 
Temptations wings flutter the strongest
To oppose a will sanctified
Track Name: Mesmeric Furnace
MESMERIC FURNACE:

(I): Serpent’s skin be shed
And second faces turn
My loves all rent asunder
Righteous, with no victor’s smile
I bow my knee in supplication
To return to hell
 
(He): With forked and venomous tongue
You ravaged Dusk
A gift undone
(I): Return to origin, in chains be bound, delivered
(He):Gehenna’s maw be filled with a taste of failures’ child
(I): Cast as sinner yet my only wounds
Were words of challenge and pride
And the need to destroy oppression and let man be free
 
Head bowed
Acquiescent, (I/He): Immolation
(I): As clay returns to dust
And ten thousand stand
(I/He): To rebuild Jerusalem
 
(I): Once ye spoke
To punish man no more
For in their genesis
I embedded seven seeds
Yet floods ‘gat plagues
(He):“Hail the apocalypse!”

(I): No falling stars shall stay the heavens and betray my legacy
 
My fruit shall wither on your vine
For ripening needs a chaos hand
 
(‘Alpha’ I, reborn): I STARE INTO THE EFFERVESCENCE
INTO RELENTLESS CASCADES
TUMULTUOUS SWEETNESS
OF JERUSALEM’S CRIES
 
PRIDE, WRATH, GLUTTONY, LUST
ENVY, GREED, DESPAIR
SEVEN INFECTIONS
FOR MAN IS MINE
 
BRUTUS, JUDAS, CASSIUS CHEWED
FROM NINE CIRCLES REBORN
FOR THEY ARE ME, AS I AM THEY
 
I RISE!
I RISE!
I RISE!
I RISE!
