The Atavism Of Evil Lyrics

7. The Atavism Of Evil (6:21)
obsequious to the dark
a tyrannical devotion
prophetic in its essence
in the left hand path lies your dominion

two thousand years of subservience
spiritual autism, weakness exalted
maniacal sycophantic rantings
justified by necrophiliac teachings
tomes and torahs, bibles and scriptures
impotent fallacies from an impotent god
the breeding of cattle to be led to the slaughter
an empire of weakness built only to crumble

two thousand years of attrition
where lies of light block out the truth
redemption through self flagellation
justified with an afterlife kingdom

two thousand years of repentance
penitence & contrition, remorse & self loathing
an enslavement of your own making
idiotic devotion to self hatred & abhorrence
you sow the seeds of your own demise
and inseminate them with the blood of your kin
you dig your own grave with misguided allegiance
and you seal your fate with fervent consecration

...but these times are soon to end...

you''re haunted by primordial desires
your true essence can not be kept down
you shall never break free from this cycle
you shall never appease that which cant be consoled
to kill, to betray, to torment, to spoil
to rape, to enslave, to degrade, to defile
to debase, to disparage, to mislead, and to ravish
this is your fate which you can not oppress

...which you can not oppress...
