The Abysmal Horizons Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. I, Monolithic (4:53)
I'm destined to seek the origin of reality,
Chosen, I am, the savior of humanity,

Forging my name onto the pillars of time,
Transfiguration of the mind,
Unlocking powers once thought mythic,
I, Monolithic!

Cloaked are the empyrean's abstruse and ancient powers,
through me begins the epoch of sagacity,
Praised, I'll be a legend for eternity,
My name will be echoed through time,
I'm destined to seek the origin of reality,
Chosen, I am, the savior of humanity,

Forging my name onto the pillars of time,
Transcending higher states of mind,
Bestowed with powers once thought cryptic,
I, Monolithic!

Within the darkness I'll dwell,
transpiration from this human shell,
Within the darkness I'll dwell,
transpiration from this mortal shell,

Transcending higher states of mind,
My name will be echoed through time,
Possessing powers once thought mythic,
I, Monolithic!
2. Towers (6:26)
"Scatter them!" the ancients cried aloft
as they concealed their secrets in the cosmic womb,
"Collapse the towers of hubristic triumph!"
"Confound the children's tongues," they screamed from thrones,

"Put to sleep the infinite knowledge, for they've become aware,
Mere mortals can never be gods, their pursuits will only end in vain!"

Along the way, we have lost our essence,
We have suffocated under the weight of our fallen towers

The reason of existence is hidden within us,
Amidst the remnants, we have lost our way!

"Let them crawl through the wreckage of impious constructs!"
Ambition usurped by confusion,
Punishment dealt in vicious envy,
Retribution with no mercy

The ancients relished in their power as gods,
the mortals cowered, their creation leveled on sod

Along the way, we have lost our essence,
We have suffocated under the weight of our fallen towers

The reason of existence is hidden within us,
Amidst the remnants, we have lost our way!
3. Incantations (5:36)
Lo' spirits of the cosmic construct,
I lie awake in this formless existence,
Enter me into thy void,
Bestow unto me the ancient knowledge of what was and what shall be,
Merge my spirit with the boundless, ethereal river of space and time

Mankind shall burn the fires in spite of the tyrants who sit on empyreal thrones!
Mankind shall awaken the infinite knowledge of the omniscient ones!
"Through me, a new Golden Age shall come, brighter and better by far than the old!"

EXPERGISCERE ANIMA!
EX NIHILO, FIO UNUS!

Mankind shall open the doors to that which is hidden,
Mankind shall be free from the mystery and finality of death,
Through me, the empyrean thrones above shall crumble at the hands of mortal men!

EXPERGISCERE ANIMA!
EX NIHILO, FIO UNUS!
4. Beyond the Abysmal Horizons (6:00)
Approaching the nebulous dawn,
immaterial energies casting into the cosmic sea,
Spectral entity before the creation of time,

Deconstruction, incarnation - an ever flowing stream.

Weightless, fusing, becoming one,
materializing anew from this coalescent matter that bore this conscious existence, I am beyond the abysmal horizons!

Eternal! I tread on dominions untouched by man,
Immortal! I ascend the echelons of supremacy,
Perpetual! Casting my shadow across the deepest horizons

Cleansed from the restraints of mortality - conquering death!

Deconstruction, incarnation - an ever flowing stream.
5. Creator / Destroyer (5:00)
Vita dantis, vitae dolor, lator mortis, infinita!

I am the bringer of death!
All is vanquished to be born anew,
I require no beginning, I am the bringer of death!

Through this dissolution,
It is I who consumes all,

And within me are the eons of iniquity and the epics of peace,
And from these remnants, a virgin existence is begotten

I prevail as the principle of consciousness;
the life-giver; the indivisible reality;
the infinite; the cleanser - DEATH

Vita dantis, vitae dolor, lator mortis, infinita!
6. Usurpers of the Primal Womb (4:09)
"I am the existential force,
it is through me that all is born,
With chaos and creation I consummate,
Sculpting my throne!"

Before creation they receded from her womb,
scattering the shroud the darkness,
the primal land they would consume,
carving their domains from her flesh

"I am the existential force,
it is through me that all is born,
With chaos and creation I consummate,
Sculpting my throne!"

From the abyss, she was formed,
To the abyss, she was cast down,
lying in her eternal tomb - to be awakened again,

Entrenching the celestial scape, they rose against her,
treacherous spawn usurped her throne,
buried within her lie the cosmic secrets of their creation and time.

She was formed,
To the abyss, she was cast down,
lying in her eternal tomb - to be awakened again
7. The Pillars of Creation (7:58)
The Pillars of Creation call out:
"What is it that your kind so desperately seeks?
Why must you sacrifice yourself to better man?
To absolve yourself from their apathy?
To absolve yourself from their blindness?

All fades with time, all returns to dust,
All fades with time, all can be measured but we!

What is it that your kind so recklessly strives to achieve?
A conceited existence built on self-destruction?"

"I absolve myself from their apathy!
I absolve myself from their blindness!"

"There is no greater existence, no higher states of power,
You simply exist to be a mere conception of chance!
All fades with time, all returns to dust,
All fades with time, all can be measured but we!"
8. ...And the Cosms Flow Eternal (4:26)
All which was will be forgotten in time,
An existence spawned by chance - a microcosm

An evanescent splinter in the cosmic eon,
Myriad conquests carried out in vain,
We were born from nothing,
And to nothing we'll return!

An evanescent being since the dawn of time,
Inconsequential triumphs carried out in vain,
We were born from nothing,
And nothing we'll remain...

The cosms flow eternal, infinite they are in space and time,
relentless is their currents, unyielding is their destruction,
the cosms flow eternal onward towards obscurity...
