Epistemology Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Sisslith
1. Cosmic Revelation (1:14)
2. The Spiritual Relief (9:54)
Here, between the moments
We see so clear the omens
Of what's to come
What we should have done and undone

I cast away my throne
I rise and claim this fate as my own
My destiny's not written in stone
I cast away my crown
In my rejuvenation I will drown
Am I the godless son to face the unknown

In solitude I embrace the eerie silence
And the deep mystery of inner thoughts
Serving as a reason for being anti-human

In depths of wisdom never distraught
You wake up from the bliss of your ignorance
And the balance of karma haunts you down
In your own rejuvenation you will drown

Essence of the mind
Existence of our kind
Humanity's beliefs
The spiritual relief

Material substances is all that we are
This is the true science of existence
Spiritual beliefs are only an essence
Caused by fanatic religious persistance

The mind is the great power of humans
Continously evolving past the unknown
Into future understanding of relativity
Preceeding the limits history has grown

Essence of the mind
Existence of our kind
Humanity's beliefs
The spiritual relief

These godwritten pages
A tale of the ages
When time gave us the deadly kiss
The moment we would fall and move beyond

The cycle surely ends again
To death we all succumb
From earth all life arose
To earth we all shall become again

Essence of the mind
Existence of our kind
Humanity's beliefs
The spiritual relief
3. Dark Divinity (7:34)
At the shore where all lands end
Among skeletal remains of fallen warriors
Gleaming dark magick resides
A gateway to where the holy's denied

The sea is ravishing, ferocious and cold
A living testemonial oath
Waves of vacuum swallow the souls
Only the chosen ones shall be released

Across the seemingly endless sea
Towards the north where the ice lies thick
Our shadows remain and darkness regain
True powers and magick I shall retain

Within our minds we see
The dark divinity
Wake up and stand with us
Tonight we burn the cross!

Behold the celestial sphere
The dome of fallen angels
Universe made manifest
The struggle for communion

Towards undying lands
Divulging the final moment
The star supremacy
Indulge in dark divinity

As the night falls and the stars shine brighter
The silence is howling at it's maker
Whispering winds and shadows painting sins

Your god have deemed you unworthy
And the hour of reckoning is at hand
Your blood will paint the way to the future
As his name will be remembered for the ages

Arise from the netherworld
Wisdom and fire in equal measure
A matter of soul not of flesh
Voices will linger in these walls eternally

We will fall in divinity
Your reign has become undone

Inside the castle of bone and stone
Ceremonial chants fill mighty halls
A thousand warriors resound
The abyss cursing the dead enthralled

Within our minds we see
The dark divinity
Wake up and stand with us
Tonight we burn the cross!

Behold the celestial sphere
The dome of fallen angels
Universe made manifest
The struggle for communion

Towards undying lands
Divulging the final moment
The star supremacy
Indulge in dark divinity
4. The Grand Design (7:38)
The sense of life
Expected to be nothing else
Oppotunity for self release
Is clinging to mortal disease

Nothing can pass
Once crossing it's path
Kingdom come on a cosmic scale
A force so strong
Not even light escapes

Our world is a principle of contagion
The universal notion of cause and effect
All is entangled in vast systematic unity
Even the most horrific congenital defect

Leaving - Chasing end from afar
Dying - The death of a star
Evolving - Into mass from time beyond time

Leaving - The fear of mortality
Dying - The fate of reality
Ending - Intertwined into a grand design

From pitch black emptiness
Boundaries destined to seize
Unleashed - Nowhere to be appeased

Macro time - Micro space
Cosmic revelation for a mortal race
From the shadows beginning - A natural end

Leaving - Chasing end from afar
Dying - The death of a star
Evolving - Into mass from time beyond time

Leaving - The fear of mortality
Dying - The fate of reality
Ending - Intertwined into a grand design

The sense of death
Expected to be nothing else
Intertwined heart - The fear of mortality

This war of life
Intertwined into a grand design
Open your eyes to the fate of reality

Seed sprung into existence
Binary basis profound
Eluded comprehension
Paramount wisdom decay

Horizons of tomorrow
Nightsky reflecting the past
A cosmic revelation
Veiling the ultimate truth
5. Necropolis (7:19)
Adrift - Nomadic men
Towards the land of no return
To seek the knowledge of the gods

A distant journey
Through the sun-baked deserts
Where sandstone monuments are towering

Above the dunes the solar storms erupt
Into the esoteric realms of day and night

Across red land
Through scalding sand
Yearning in the hearts of men

Above the tombs
The city of the dead
Necropolis

Into the valley of their kin
They seek elysium for all
Death is a mere phase of life

Depicted on the walls
Funerary scripts depraved by time
The epitaph of fallen kings

"Go tell the gods
A fallen hero here within
Ascended to another life"

"Upon this throne
Of stone and bone
This kingdom I will reign alone"

Above the tombs
The city of the dead
Necropolis
6. Universal Core (3:54)
Augmenting negative insistence
Circumvent summation system
Compound adversary forces
Shaping infernal flames

Surface obscured eruption
Induce the god of thunder
Enthrone the dark triumphant
Evoke the god of fire

A fiery fracture in time
Celestial forces sublime

Emerging thermal turmoil
Imminent dry land ignition
Forging tremendous turbulence
Universal decay

Surface obscured eruption
Induce the god of thunder
Enthrone the dark triumphant
Evoke the god of fire

A fiery fracture in time
Celestial forces sublime

The wielding hammer above
Lightning besieging the eye
Increasing tension below
The rapture drowning the sky - Above

Raging storm below
Ruptured sky above
Cosmic seed of war
Universal core

A fiery fracture in time
Celestial forces sublime

The wielding hammer above
Lightning besieging the eye
Increasing tension below
The rapture drowning the sky - Above
7. Introspection (5:05)
I cannot unsee this misery - Tearing in me
Losing contact with reality
Paranoid and persecutory delusions
Claim the essence of mentality

I will not submit to fear
I've come too far - I'm in too deep
Venturing the unknown
The victors fate is mine alone

See beyond the boundaries
Break your confinement
Open up your dogmatic mind
Man overboard - A lifetime reward
A life lived in hate would just seal your own fate

Unchain the mental elements
Cast out the vile contaminants
Thrown into the oceans of your fears

I see myself falling - I fly on broken wings
Salvation calling - Elusive spirit free
I feel that I'm lost - Embrace reality
I ask what I must - Is this my destiny?
8. Epistemology (9:40)
In philosophy of mind
Outside the conscious awareness
Mind's eye
Emotional drawn experience

Sense of perception is knowledge
What describes the spiritual being
Perceptual sense of memory

Enviromental interpretation
Abnormal meaningfulness
Illusions in ambiguous eye

Momentary subjective state
Deciphering otherworldly claims
Intended pareidolia

Revelations coerce divination
Seeing through the mind's eye
Sensory epistemology
