Blood Mantra Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level chelsea485       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Exiled in Flesh (4:05)
Awaken again into my daymare.
Location unknown, memory zero,
vision distorted, sound muted, mind lost.
Slowly stabilising, removing self paranoia.
Reconstructing reality from pieces
till discovering the common sense between here, now and why.
These severe answers cut my screaming tongue.
Detain a Nomad soul in my motionless flesh.
Haunted by desires, sat in this fucking chair.
I won't fade in a dumb row crawling between the defeated.
My ears still follow the notes, veins pulse with the rhythm.
Well-known faces open wide my eyes.
Acidic air fills my lungs.
Awakened senses assault!
These living shapes, noises from the world outside.
Exiled inside myself again, ready to wake up!
2. The Blasphemous Psalm to the Dummy God Creation (2:42)
Vermin-ploundered void inside.
City flash melts the wax soul.
Sewed myself shut in speechless mouth.
Could it be the promised land?

Elysium, Eden - the abandoned search.
Non-essential deific light, eclipsed in vivid world.
The only eternal form: Eternity in formalin.
Couldn't find their own selves, expecting the guide.

Those who shall remain in shadow,
always shine the most.
The mortal visage is more familiar.
Mellifluous whisper sublimates their egos.
The blasphemous psalm to the dummy-god creation.

If it only could melt the inner self,
if it could bring relief,
I would sign in!
3. Veins (5:04)
Marked as a "new human breed", with the face ripped from the amorphic body,
half breathing to not disturb this order.
Wired to a demo-god, upgrading the faith, downloading the holy soul-ware.
Saved or just safe?
Data flooding a weak brain, confused mind under mass media control,
submissively taking the nourishment until it pukes with cybernetic dope.

New age has come, shiny screens display the true world.
How many bytes are You worth?
You get a "sweet" and it does the trick.
Be a clown or get the throne through knowing "more"?

Mental extermination machines, pumping shit into the brains.
Global factories mass-producing the new kind of man.
The numbered model scalped of identity, steered and deafened.
I cut the wires, I wrestle with the veins.
Must disconnect!

Millions of clones, humanoidal folk, being bred and dying,
Suffering the same kind of dole.
Touching the throne, the invisible throne, are the kings of lethargy
chained to the fake crown.
Serving the gods, the digital gods, on the altar of stripped privacy.
Fucking system's sluts!
4. Blood Mantra (5:05)
Through centuries leading their wars
Armed with crucifixes
Hardened with dogmas
Ravaging
Cursing
And murdering every Proteus
I heard faith is a weapon to protect or kill?

If you want me find me a faith not raised from ruins
Find me a god with non dirty hands
And I will be your, I will be your assassin, assassin

Eternal struggle, exchange of souls
Seven billions of souls and there is no free trade
If god is a ware who is the businessman?
Innocent merchant with familiar face
Is kingly trying to strike a bargain

Priceless
Currency
Salvation for sale
A unique offer?
Who likes fairy tales? [2x]

Instinct calls for destruction
Prayers will muffle their screams
Good lord will drink this blood
Every divinity demands sacrifice
Every sacrifice needs divine purposes
This is blood mantra
A universal rite, rite

Divided by symbols
Possessed by laws
Throats cut for power
Rebels choked on their blood
Temples carved in red stone
Altars from looted gold
Sanctification by slaughter
Absolution by doom
Saviours impaled on their thrones
The reaper's dancing around
Vicious circle rolls on

I see the cultures fed by the same earth breast
I see the races watered by the same earth veins
I see all the chosen nations sharing the same breath as me
I saw civilizations burnt their blood soaked into this earth

I saw gods raised from their ashes under different names
I saw devouring hate driven by fear of otherness, otherness, otherness
5. Nest (6:25)
Experience your race!
You are the son of the hostile nest.
Dormant, damned skills, and mercy-proof eyes.
Black gates to its core. Welcome to the swarm!
Grind your string, pull out the tongue, forget speech, impale claws.
Ready to attack, always bites back twice.
Banish the Decalogue, the strongest shape the law.
Never lower the eyes, the weak ones lose at once.
Born in pain, bring the pain. Burnish bloody, priceless craft!

Inner crusade, man against the beast,
or beast against the anthropic man?
Eternal search for thyself.
The delusion of triumph. The burden of plague.
Human ever-equal death!
Humanize yourself - die!
Or incarnate the beast - strike!
Seal the cursed fate.
The wrath is the way. Discover its taste.
The virgin hit - a furious release.
Don't move a step back!
This is the lethal symphony of nature.

Experience your race!
You are the son of the hostile nest.
Dormant, damned skills, and mercy-proof eyes.
Black gates to its core. Welcome to the swarm!
Grind your string, pull out the tongue, forget speech, impale claws.
Ready to attack.

Born in pain, bring the pain.
Burnish bloody, priceless craft.
6. Instinct (5:49)
Hunting for some satisfaction?
Follow the species hidden under royalty of our kind.
Instinct and treacherous mother Evolution,
left the beast standing at Your side.
Congratulations! You are the highest of the links...
But remember! You can't deny what You are.

Couldn't it be different,
cause we are the whores of the porn generation.
Nude witches on the walls,
lewd spell cast on media trash.
Listen to their voices lilt.
Can You hear them, calling for your animal?
Inquisition of paraphiliac minds.

Orgasmic Value rules the aphrodisiac world.
Fuck for money!
Fuck for name!
Fuck for money!
Fuck for fame!

Masked with exquisite lives.
Avoid taboo world, taboo world.
The forbidden world of primal pleasures.
There is no freedom in our nature.
Whenever You reach!
Whatever You achieve!
Whoever You are!
There is no freedom in our nature!
7. Blindness (7:37)
Kin after kin, and day after day.
We were waiting. Searching for answers.
Admiring sharp signs on a liquid horizon.
Prophetic words, ominous phenomena,
and the wise Mayans' calculations
betrayed their own destiny.
Failed us!

Some had prepared for this show.
Dug their salvation underground.
Concrete paradise raised for the chosen ones.
Deep enough to be deaf, bury remorses on the surface.
Blind enough no wander in the dark of own madness.

Prophetic words, ominous phenomena,
and the wise Mayans' calculations
betrayed their own destiny.
Failed us!

I've never known our beginning,
but I've found the end.
Doom lies in every creature
under the human crest.
8. Red Sun (3:01)
9. Moth Defect* (6:21)
I'm writhing among my brothers.
Vigilant and distrustful.
Enemy among predators.
Always traced by the others.
Hatching the lifeshel,
that I used to wear,
absorbing paramorphosed reality.

No one will lead the blind!
No one will call the numb!
Follow superior's principles.
No prayers, our silence is out speech.
No bread, our fear is our feed.
No light, our blindness is our hope.
No warmth, our coldness is our force.

God left! There is no Eden.
The sky struggled with ash. Disappeared.
Lungs taste the venomous air.
the curse of cannibalistic breath.
We are existing in phantasmagoric hell.
Limits of human creation,
crossed at every point.

Moral schism, images of decay.
The coma is wrapping me up
cocooning senses in a catatonic shell.
The pallid chamber-extinction stench.

The pallid chamber-extinction stench.
Awakening in Fire-Imago in Death.
We are the burning nation,
the torches of absent light.

In forge of this flame
I hammered out my wings,
spread wide towards the freedom.
Grey wings covered with dust.

God left. There is no Eden.
The sky struggled with ash. Disappeared.
Lungs taste the venomous air.
The coma is wrapping me up
cocooning senses in a catatonic death!
