Fragmentary Evidence Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Aetheral (4:18)
Reality was stirred
Like a fog inhaled at the fringe of the eyesight
Coalescent just long enough for the rapture
He is no longer alone
Gifted with a costly talent
Chosen to perpetuate the old craft
A forced farewell for the youth

Meet the Henchmen, before whose path walls dissolve
Gone gathering words and a little scare in its prime
Coven hived within mountains like termites in wood
Alcove bound carnations in wait

The static regimen
Taken away from infancy
The static regimen
Non corporal drill to walk the other side
The static regimen
The egregore's achieved

Whence just promising pupils
A vocation stirred awake
A hand came from out of life
As if dragged across the mirror

Remembrances of an old self
Like guide slopes in the descent to carnation
The routine of the scare
A training attuned with millennia
The mission ends as feelings return...

The ectoplasm dispersed, the egregore vanished
Subliminate long enough to play the pawns
The ectoplasm dispersed, the egregore vanished
Subliminate long enough to give kings will
2. Simian Cattle (5:38)
Whistle and they will come to fry
Iron into their own hide
Self branded in style for the slavery
To exemplify a whorship that will steer
Their volatile allegiance is guaranteed
(with full bellies and empty minds...)

At times a few wise do revolt
Whose forefathers voiced the brazen bull
They squander their spit in useless warnings
A librarian's crusade for the illiterate

On the hunt for a wivern
A tiny tentacle of a much bigger beast
Whose flesh is ground for mankind
Like a dog, is a land to his lice

(Embody an object of worship...)
Time to pour gasoline down the anthill
The mob is armed
The livestock is corralled
The geese are sent to march

A few wise still do revolt
Newcomers in a long string of martyrs
Still they squander their spit in useless warnings
A librarian's crusade for the illiterate
(On the trail of a hollow armor)

Enticed paint by number rebellion
On the hunt for a wivern
A tiny tentacle of the Leviathan
3. Orphans of Living (5:10)
Signals recieved
The parasite awakes, in a peeble mind
Devil sat on his shoulder
Took over the reins
The now fumble guiding a carrion
Toy soldiers, they walk among us
Activated tools of the trade, engineering rather than born
With rage inoculated
All life is fair game

Triggered by the new game
The cause is a fake but now the weapons are for real
Raus, raus, raus
Heard a click, then vaporised in pink mist

Yet at night the haunting comes relentless
Mutilated faces becoming
Yet at night the haunting comes relentless
Mutilated faces becoming

One at war against the multitude, (engineer) rather than born
Tearless eyes whipped by sand
(Programmed) rather than raised
Sleepless children run across (the ravaged lands)
With the serene confidence of the invincible
4. Jupiter to Ignite (8:24)
Excelsior
Like an evangel foreseen and staged
We will ascend to the heights
Setting other bodies in the sky
In hope to there sow our life
From created to creators
In the image of God, makers of worlds
An infinity of Babel Towers to defy Him

Free of morals and gravity, wandering
Higher, living lavishly the life of a god

The pride to leave a mark, even into the great night sky
Our desert islands to flee, as the mainland burns
Forgot about the World's woes
For we had higher matter to care for

Namely Jupiter to ignite, a star is born, literally
Steered the collisions, the mass increases, the core ignites
The secret industries worked, concealed
Sown the rocks that gravitate around
Fathers of the Jovian System
A progeny to enlighten...

The pride to leave a mark, even in the great night sky
Our desert islands to flee, as the mainland burns
Virgin grounds to seed with flagpoles
For we had higher matter to care fore
Namely Jupiter to ignite, a star is born, literally
Steered the collisions, the mass increases
No epitaph greater

Excelsior
Securely on trail at the lagrangian point
A spheric horizon to scrutinate, infinity in all plans
Excelsior
We frolick through the stars
Hike asteroids as skerries
Towards the shores of forever
5. Sovereigns Unknown (5:13)
High in the sky, watchful eyes in the sky
Hovering overseers accounting men's deeds
Listeners of your prayers, bearers of guidance
Vril riding Sovereigns Unknown

Nestled where old maps showed monsters
Unknown places none dared to dwell
Kept men off our shores, playing on their fears
Like skilful fiddlers play their strings

But soon the tales didn't suffice
And an explorer ended our way
To his peers he told his journey
From desolation to luxuriance
Flying clumsily, across the ice sea
Our way came his tiny airplane
Greeted him with warmth and showed him our world
Still, he came back betraying

Off our shores then came
Their mountains of steel
Spewing smoke across the skies
Spat iron flies that we downed with ease
The midges challenged the eagle

On a fiery vessel he came
Now returns sailing derelicts
Counting his remaining hands
Almost swept overboard
From thousands a few were left

Adrift in the wake of the hurricane
The once victorious, cry seeing his might
Flotsam adrift onto the tide
But in the mind of unbelievers
None of this has ever been
Superstition blends in science's leaking infancy

Upward come the prayers of men
Nestling open their mouths in hope
Begging the skies
For the worm to come
6. Skyless (6:30)
This cave...
Strange children once came out to face the light!
A few found their way, backed their tracks, into the gloom...

Down in a nightly world
They felt someone coming
Heard voices inside, elder souls spoke:

"Feeble people from above
Do prepare to meet the flesh of your legends
Witness the emergence
Sons of the skyless land come
Once deserters of the surface
Anthill Earth revealed in legends all over the world

Skyless diaspora
Driven away from the sun for so long
Erratic with burning eyes
Shocked before the horizon and its convexity

Rising, out of the deep, testifying our glory
Lost marvels meant to see the light at last
So far under your feet, few among you did conceive
In our outskirts you saw a world becoming yours

Sons of the skyless land come
Once deserters of the surface
Anthill Earth revealed in legends all over the world
Skyless diaspora
Driven away from the sun for so long
Conquered matter while you apes went scampering in trees
Then you got crowned over creation

Rising out of the deep, testifying our glory
(We) made mountains fly, conquered seven stars
Hollow realm under your feet
The vault of all mysteries
Legends are given life to outshine the lies"
7. Faith Puppeteers (4:07)
We wait, viper eyed shepherds
To bleed flocks in devotion
The altars, inverted wells of lifeblood
Kings and queens
Incarnated gods for you to adore
Pervading your wombs, breeding puppeteers
Weaving masks worn at war
Seeded in onslaught rehearsed
Spectatorly, channel the pain
Of a fenced game watched and culled
Venison flocking towards us, godlike decoys
Sowed fear in theirs souls, faking solicitude
Predation evolved into mimicking the prey

Still we reap, dividing the herd
Striving to dim this light mistakenly brought
Idolatry reinforced, infants fed to Moloch
With the fervour to serve the faith puppeteers

Plentiful bellies for us to deflower
Fetch your daughters to our sons
And your sons to enslave

Sellers of emotions granted their domesticity
World lays obscene. We reign supreme!
Will you meat ever learn? Good old times returning
An unchanged matter, except for the ways
An unhuman now given a human face
The wise leave no remains

Lifeblood
All that suffering harvested
Every year is a better yield
Lifeblood
All that suffering harvested
Every year is a better yield
8. Brimstone Landscapes (4:30)
Infant souls came to this world
Longing for given eyes
With a craving for marvels
Unbeknownst, the surprise to come
Exiled off heaven
All life lined for the final requiem
Exiled off heaven
Where in hell did they land?

Dreams echo in their vacant minds
Sentience fading to oblivion
Yield to the uncivilized
Those brimstone landscapes
Upward we shall fly
Exiled off heaven
All life lined for the final requiem
Exiled off heaven
Yes in hell they did land

Freeze the image in your minds
A gleeful dream amidst torments
Visualise lush over the waste
Memories, the only archives
Of a world evaporated
Global matricide, leeches drill her skin
Sorcerers' apprentices unleashed the pillage
They scatter for cover, yet the land's bare
They now lament about why this came upon them all

Palliative care for the Earth's infection
Who will dare build the ark?
Flying castle a man made cloud
We shall then sail the storms above

With the duty of seeding
These shores upon which we landed
Those once were mountains
(We're) bound to there sow life again
Let our sons have sons until all mind is forgotten again
Let fire resurrect, let everything be reborn
9. Oversee the Rebirth (11:12)
Sail the canopy above, like the surface of fertile sea
Up the streams to the source, we shall nurture the rebirth
Of the extant unknown

Sail the canopy above, like the surface of fertile sea
Up the streams to the source, we shall nurture the rebirth
Of the extant unknown

Up the streams to the source...

Holocene ends stirred worlds, eras switching, uprooting life
Lunacy roams again over the endless garden that we maintained
Travelers in the wind without a goal
Landing randomly and like for a surprise

One with the air
One with the trees
One with water and mud
One
One with the air
One with the light and the dark...

Sapiens annihilated habilis, erectus, pithecanthropus
Sapiens' turn has come to be doomed
Bones over erectus, pithecanthropus
Become the fossils for tomorrow to dig
A lower cladistic echelon, ancestor...

Facing the storm, facing perpetual upheaval
Out of chaos the abyss yield newborn mountains to dwell
Wandering, seemingly oblivious of destination
Without a star to guide yet the path goes straight forward
The dawn is rising, as earth bleeds fire
Healing as a new skin, new world emerge out of the wounds
Wandering, seemingly oblivious of destination
Without a star to guide yet the path goes straight forward

Those hills once were temples
And they'll soon sail over their land
Their nets bringing up old remains
Scriptures forgotten, to be eroded
Creatures go unseen and wither, civilizations to hibernate
You will sow your last seeds and wither, bound in animality...
