1. Gospel of the Flesh (12:30)
Far from the transcendent above
From almighty Father and the Logos thereof
Far from the purest thought and idea
Removed from the concept of divinity…

Are the things that we see
Are you and me
And what we perceive…
Is all we believe, what we can touch, what we can feel

The blood that we bleed
The lives that we lead
Mundane in the eyes of the noble breed
The joys of our bodies
The ways of our lusts
Will remain in this world as your fortunes rust

With the things that we see
Like you and me
And what we perceive…
Is all we believe, what we can touch, what we can feel

Paper is just paper and paper will burn
What paper conserves is quickly unlearned
Wood is just wood and wood will ignite
What wood has sheltered it can set alight

Paper is paper and paper will burn
Like the wisdoms we unlearned
Wood is wood and wood will ignite
The fire spread among bench rows set alight
Burn, the benches, the cross the book
Nature reclaiming what they took
BURN

They stole the knowledge
They forged their own God
They wrote it all down, abstracting deities from their objects
Corrupting the wisdom
Became their own Gods
They wrote it all down, his-story rewritten
They stole the knowledge
And thus they forgot
The divinity that resides in the human breast

Amongst what we see
In you and me
And what we perceive
Is all we believe, what we can touch, what we can feel
The things that we see / We are deprived We are deranged We are the have-nots
you and me / We have been robbed of the world inside our mind
From what we perceive / We are enslaved we are tied up into their slipknots
But all we believe is what we can see, what we can touch and what we can feel

As the flames lick the ceiling
Of their holiest inner rooms
The shadows are licked by the flames revealing
My smile and laughter as vengeance looms

BURN! Burn to the ground!
BURN! Let it burn down!
BURN! the benches
BURN! the book
BURN! the cross
And reclaim what they took
BURN!
2. Home (2:57)
"I have chosen you, my home" by Ali Fouda
إني اخترُتك يا وطني
حُبّا وطواعية
إني اخترتك يا وطني
سِراً وعلانية
إني اخترتك يا وطني
فليتنكّر لي زمني
ما دُمْتَ ستذكُرن
يا وطني الرائع يا وطني
دائمُ الخضرة يا قلبي
وإن بان بعَيْنَيَّ الأسى
دائمُ الثورةِ يا قلبي
وإن صارت صباحاتي مَسا
جئتُ في زمن الجزْرِ
جئت في عز التعب
رشاش عنف وغضب
3. Internalize Deir Yassin (7:46)
Sunrise / Gods eyes
Stray from the cruelest sights
With walls / with lies
Trying to keep out the cries
Sterilized / Euthanized
In the name of Jehovah or Christ
Across this land so desired
Military checkpoints
Gun turrets and barbed wire
Worlds of desolation about and within
In the wake of Deir Yassin

Colonization, of the soil and of the heart
The sons of Abraham - tear each other apart
Amongst the olive branches whisper the dead
Blood mixed with soil, hills turning red

Colonization!

Shoulder the heirloom of murder and sin
Internalize Deir Yassin
As the land weeps for its children led astray…

By a culture specialized to bring despair
Cast lead, teargas projectiles fill the air
The cold of the war machine, as cold as the wind of the west
Cold minds, not any warmth left - inside their chest

Colonization!

Shoulder the heirloom of murder and sin
Internalize Deir Yassin

Generations of refugees
Hurt pride and indignity
Driven into the ground
Rubber bullets and live rounds
Discarded shells pave way to Gehenna
Holy words blind the eyes of the sinner
The land weeps for its children led astray
They lost their way, we lost our way

I hear the voice of madness
Passed down the generations
Insane and tortured victims
Will bring us to the end
There'll no peace in this land
There'll be no peace in this world
We let fear and greed rule
They get what we deserve
Ideas of ownership will
Possess the scared and dispossessed
Neurotic paranoia
Will pass on like a pest
Divide and conquer
Pillage and rule
Amerigo Vespuci to Menachem Begin
Wounded Knee to Deir Yassin
From Dachau to Shatila
A web of pain
Screams that will echo
Again and again

Against corrupted aggressors
Behind guns and lies
With barriers of concrete and steel
In their vain attempt to keep out the cries
Of the effectively euthanized
In the name of Jehovah or Christ
Across the land so desired
Military checkpoints
Gun turrets and barbed wire
Desolation – about and within
In the wake of Deir Yassin

Shoulder their heirloom of murder and sin
Internalize Deir Yassin
The land weeps for its children led astray
Stumbling through deserts and to deaf ears they pray
Faced by silence they kneel
Bow down to praise cold steel

Generations of refugees
Hurt pride and indignity
Driven into the ground
Rubber bullets and live rounds
Discarded shells pave way to Gehenna
Holy words blind the eyes of the sinner
The land weeps for its children led astray
They lost their way, we lost our way

There'll no peace in this land
There'll be no peace in this world
We let fear and greed rule
They get what we deserve

There'll be no peace in this land
There'll be no peace in this world
We internalized vice and sin
We internalized Deir Yassin
4. Communion (5:30)
Sunrise / Gods eyes

We internalized Deir Yassin
5. Echoes of a Forgotten Rhythm (4:46)
I wear the mask like second skin - a barrier raised within
To protect myself, and to keep myself in
I drag soot and air into my lounges - contaminated songs
Strangers speaking stranger tongues

Can we go on with suspicious minds
When fears of others leaves us blind?
Insignificant others, no next of kin
I wear the mask like second skin

No place to rest, no food to eat - in this garden of concrete
Just bitter drops at the demons teat
Intoxication as escape - from pointlessness and self-hate
Threats of violence, threats of rape

The drums still beat inside our hearts
And where I end, another being starts
Isolation, a lonely hell
The beast inside scared of itself

Between the walls of glass and steel
Concrete above and beneath our heel
Inside our chest our hearts still long
The united rhythm and hypnotic song
The breaths in sync, the flesh that merged
Hundreds of generations converged
Lonely and sterile, inside we scream
Lonely in crowds, we deny the dream

I wear the mask like second skin - a barrier raised within
Insignificant others, no next of kin
Rising shares, severed bonds
No one cares, no response

But drums still beat inside our hearts
And where I end, another being starts
Isolation, a lonely hell
The beast inside, scared of itself

In this sea of flesh, all alone
Faces blank and eyes of stone
Between us all, the distance grow
What lies inside we'll never show
The forgotten rhythm echoes strong
Pulsing, beating in the throng
(Strangers speaking stranger tongues
Sing contaminated songs)
Our dreams won’t see the light of day
Evade your eyes and look away
6. The Epitaph of the Vain and the Forgotten (8:17)
Overshadowed by surmounting fears
My hopes evade me
Above my head the monuments
Built to thieves
They try to bandage the severed head
They try to salvage the fucking dead
So deceived and distraught
All their efforts amount to naught

But weeds! A speck of dust in an endless sea
But dirt! A mistake and nothing worth
Insane! Unable to live up to what we called humane
The sick! We carried the seed of our destruction within
Destroyer of worlds, what have we become?
Khali let the final days come!

Avert our eyes from what we've done
A hive collapsing
We carve our names into the ground
One final vanity
We race head first to the end of the world
And plead of forgiveness from encircling birds
To earth we'll return
Everything known to man will burn

But weeds! A speck of dust in an endless sea
But dirt! A mistake and nothing worth
Insane! Unable to live up to what we called humane
The sick! We carried the seed of destruction within
Destroyer of worlds, what have we become?
Khali let the final days come!

Empty seas, eroded land
Polluted air in the trail of man
A world of deserts, engulfed in sand
Inherit wastelands in the trail of man
An epitaph whispered in the trees
Let the earth be silent after ye
But still the scar will remain
And the extinct won't come again

So fall!
Beneath the monuments to thieves grown tall
So crawl!
Beneath the scavengers surrounding all
So fall!
Among the bones of those who never tried at all
So crawl!
Beneath the masters whip and swear yourself innocent to all

In the twilight of civilization I see Khali dancing, with her bloodstained arms stretched to the scavengers above. Careless the animals gather around the funeral pyre of humanity, the lost ones, those who strayed from the way of things and became the gods of chaos and deceit. Crumbling, their fossilized hives now lay silent in the aftermath. The forgiveness of the oblivion that only can be found in the coming and going of countless ages will clear the names of the guilty just as the rain and the wind wears down the names they carved in the granite and marble. Let the epitaph be written on the bark of the trees and heard in the song of the birds. Let it read “Here lies humanity, the vane and the forgotten”. May the earth remain silent after ye.
7. Days of Heaven (5:01)
Antropocen
The power and the glory
Days of heaven, euphory
And then...

All must come to an end
8. Let the Earth Be Silent After Ye (11:53)
Through ages
A web of life, mutually spun
A complex of diamonds reflecting diamonds
All things as one
His-stories pages unfolded themselves,
The marriage of spirit and hand - and their bastard son
Damage is done
All innocence gone

Antropocen,
Almighty abomination
Despotic, destructive
Weakened - alone
A monument of evolutions splendor
Rendered - unfit for life
In a screaming gap between
Matter and mind
Mankind - a prisoner
Fettered in stone
As nature´s cast outs
Cursed to know
A suffering beyond mere hunger and strife

Through ages
Chthonic truths
Shrouded in clarity, progress, prosperity
Consciousness bloomed
Courageous you built Babel´s tower
At the glorious zenith of power - the final hour
Now fall towards
Impending doom

Impending doom – the lack of nourishment, the minerals needed to consume… to grow:

These antlers – dragging us down
We bore them with pride – Heads to the ground
The awesome weight of the mind – the crown
Of creation die – crushing heads through the ground
Extinction

A liar’s creed
Social contracts, moral codes,
Laws and prohibitions, altered core conditions
All broken off horns
Keeping us in fever and pain,
As crippled creatures, disfigured features
In fear and thus feared
And put to scorn

Adapted to betrayal,
Holding on to
A faltering hope of
Self mutilation
Shunning our inherent grandness,
Pathetically lurking in ruins,
Like rats
Like gods
Fit to know the secrets of universe
Yet helplessly
Stuck in flesh
In desperation, in separation
In escape of purpose and
The tragic paradox
Perishment
The sacred will of blood

A fiery hell underneath
Our dangling minds
The mind conceiving the dread of being
Stare in our eyes
Constantly in cosmic panic
The questions arise:
To reproduce the sickness
Or for the love of life
Dehumanize

Dehumanize – the inevitable inability to uphold, this weight, the height, the size… of:

These antlers – dragging us down
We bore them with pride – Heads to the ground
The awesome weight of the mind – the crown
of creation die – crushing heads through the ground
These dead, barren and dry
Megaloceros Humanitas grazing grounds
Extinction

Suppress, divert, and yearn for that you´ll never be
Sense that of which we will never speak
Depressed you seek values
Seek shelter, and cling to believe
In myths to glorify the weak
Dream of the light that you will never see
And blessed by a last messiah nailed to the last tree
For civilized barbarity knows no turning of cheeks
Humanity remain a pitiful unworthy obscurity

The fucking mess of
Humanity
Know yourselves
We pray thee
Be infertile – and let the Earth be silent after ye
