Solvet Saeclum Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Mark of an Obsidian (5:05)
the dawn of man at human inception
the shape of life perfected for what is required
for future global dominance

by the superior skills of the earthly neophyte
a weapon shall be constructed

of Stone artifacts
of the ancients
the Obsidian is superior, incontestable
and above all others

the sudden mammalian epiphany
there are spirits within us
long forgotten
and beyond the realm of man

beneath the surface
lie men fallen
by an obsidian
wielded for good or evil

cleanseth I must the demons from within thee
as I carve into your cranium
we will need no anesthesia
my obsidian, sharper than the fangs of a serpent

healeth thee I shall
by evasion of malicious spirits

as the ophidian spearhead
impales the adversary
marked by an Obsidian

arrowheads of an ancient era
ended the lives of barbaric heretics

with these vicious tools
I have myself constructed
I’ll send your soul to oblivion

By the power granted from the
weapons made of man
I claimeth thine land
and breaketh thine body,

Your kin will be enslaved in your absence
I’ll slay thee and deliver
the mark of an obsidian

how is your book of lies going to save you now?
I’ll slay thee and deliver
the mark of an obsidian
2. Shedyet (5:24)
City of old
west of the river of life

lord of the waters
grant me safe passing
As I travel the rivers
of the black land
hosting the ever so
vicious reptilian
predator

worship I shall
the carnal manifestation
of the patron
of soldiers and warfare

The cult of Shedyet
honors the crawling beasts
of the rivers of khemet

the idea of a spirit
morphed into
a concept of
a father, a creator
driven into
some irrational extreme

a dominant misconception
in the era of man

and the source of endless
battles, warfare, suffering
and malice
scriptures of old bear the weight
of human suffering throughout the ages

the reign of the reptile will cease
and there shall come a day
when the minds of shedyet will
have been taken over by the vicious Elohim

conqueror of eastern desert plains
whose cloven word shall poison
the future customs and
the traditions of the west

leaving them ridiculing the gods of old
while accepting the false prophet
son of Elohim
wanderer of the desert
spawned out of the barbaric
illiterate middle east

thou shalt not kill
but still I will slay
in the name of Yahweh
King of the desert

the reign of the reptile will cease
and there shall come a day
when the minds of shedyet will
have been taken over by the vicious Elohim

conqueror of eastern desert plains
whose cloven word shall poison
the future customs and
the traditions of the west

Shedyet

I demand that you worship
I command you to kneel before me
I demand that you worship
Thous shall have no other god before me
However vicious my order will be
You will obey
3. Solvet Saeclum (4:12)
reminiscent of the past
and a forecast of events
yet to come

the first killings
in the era of man
the modernization
of warfare

human demise
and the inescapable
destruction of everything

such as the day of wrath
when all souls hath been
summoned before the almighty
omniscient one
whom hath clutched the
populations in fear of
this monstrously cruel fate

solvet saeclum
the future destruction of the world
the discontinuity of a fundamental element

since the dawn of man, this event has been predicted
it shall come although distant from human demise
separated by time

the misconception of god
came at great expense for the
pestilence that spoileth the
aquatic sphere of life
with their despicable toxins
for the day of wrath came
by natural means

long after the great
human termination
never to be recorded
leaving the planet
scorched empty and forgotten
excoriated from the face of the earth


future scenarios
of the extinction
of man
whether by natural
catastrophe
or by our own hand is
unpredictable

eternally nonexistent

regardless
of the violence that we bring forth
and the malice that inhabits our bodies
the cosmic flow of the universe
shall remain undisturbed
and we will go unnoticed in the
grandeur of existence

the misconception of god
came at great expense for the
pestilence that spoileth the earth
the day of wrath
solvet saeclum
the future destruction of the world
the discontinuity of a fundamental element
4. Zone of Alienation (4:45)
Biological Warfare
the abuse of nanotechnology
weapons of mass destruction
and nuclear energy
Our own celestial body
now the zone of Alienation
Scorched empty and forgotten
now the planet of the dead
Death comes slowly
to the Survivors
unnatural forces
dehumanize
Dysmorphic offspring
with discordant features
mutation the changer
beneath their skin
Cities will fall
technological advancements will
fail
there’ll be few
traces
Still the universe flows
remains constant
for we are nothing but a grain
in the sands of time
Imminent death is upon thee
death is hatching from atomic cores
imminent death is upon the
blast into oblivion
Scorched empty and forgotten
extreme existential risk
Blurg
Our own celestial body
now the zone of Alienation
Dysmorphic offspring
with discordant features
mutation, the changer
beneath their skin
5. Tectonic Collapse (2:59)
The time has come
the epic cataclysm
the reconstruction of our
fundamental lithosphere.
Where will you go
when there‘s no ground beneath you,
And the earth sinks into it‘s
self?
A magmatic wasteland
Can host no organism
Every human will surely
die
Eschatology
It‘s the tectonic collapse that will alter our destiny
The earth is hatching
ravaging
as the crust of the earth brakes apart
prepare for the apocalypse

Every man for himself
Darwin put to the test
survival of fittest
death to all the rest


it‘s a useless struggle
Ecosystems de-harmonized
Evaporated oceans
our home now a furnace
the tectonic collapse
our planet‘s doom
the tectonic collapse
our planet’s doom
the tectonic collapse
Gradual build up
of heavy elements
on the constitutional plates
Frantic metamorphosis
to a volcanic wasteland
led to a tragic halt
to life as we know it
The time has come
the epic cataclysm
the reconstruction of our
fundamental lithosphere
Agony
6. Ellipse (4:02)
give rise
to the imperfect
a parallel projection
of divinity

the euclidean
phenomenon
that shapes the course
of celestial spheres

double symmetry
of unequal diameter
different from
the integrally equidistant
it will rise
against all ancient prejudices
to be remembered
as a commander
of the paths of the
ever traveling objects
of the cosmos

the planets of this world
the crooked halo
of keplerian brilliance
consistent with
macrocosmic gravitation

leader of the secondary
spheres
in infinite rotation
a never ending journey

it complies only with
the three laws
of planetary motion
7. Nadir (7:19)
At the zenith of civilization
arrived the tyrants of
the infinite vastness
the peak of human evolution
coincided with the nadir
of earthly existence

legions of the Ophidian eye
obey the words of the serpent
Landed they have
to make our earth their dominion

as he crawleth upon
an altar of vital remains
that once ruled this
territorial dominion
with extreme military effort
This foreign celestial sphere
has been seized and conquered

Ravage
the planet of the humans
make them fear their
ferocious reptilian masters

the hideous snakelike forms
of the creatures
that bring us to our quick demise
the last resort is evacuation

blarg
eradication
resistance is futile

without excessive military effort
This foreign celestial sphere
has been seized and conquered

on the brink of annihilation
it is useless to repent
legions of the ophidian I
obey the words of the serpent

global holocaust
eradication of
our species
the creatures
indifferent about
the immense suffering

the earth shall be wiped clean
of its filthy parasites
so disgusted are the reptiles
of the natives
vast fields of scorched
carcasses trampled by
vile sluggish
monstrosities

Scorched bodies cover the surface
Legions of the Ophidian I
Obey the words of the serpent

the snakelike forms of the creatures
that brought us to our
sudden annihilation
and enslaved what was left
of the global population
8. Ethereal Abyss (4:05)
Beyond the horizon
of the equidimensional
Lies a never ending
Nothingness

Upon our arrival
Territory in abeyance
A lifeless oblivion

the Etheral Abyss
destitute of matter
void of all resources
heading into nihilty

lost in the abysmal
outskirts of our macrocosm
death will embrace us

the last step of the human journey
this is where it shall end
if our demise is not brought to us
on our own
or by catastrophies of the earth

the Etheral Abyss
destitute of matter

this is how it shall end
the death of life
The point where the
universe becomes
despicably inhospitable
to any lifeform

the immeasurable
depth of the outer
corners of space
presents its infinite vastness
as we travel beyond the final frontier
and into nothingness

and Life will cease to be
Consciousness, never to arise again
9. The Discontinuity of a Fundamental Element (5:03)
the fractions dissolve
from atoms into entities
thermodynamics
disrespected and defied
a frantic,
but yet
peaceful and poetic
end to our mercyless macrocosm
and the
discontinuity
of all existing beings
empyreal and physical
whether earthbound
or celestial
impending doom is upon thee
the containing cell
of every nuclei
will dematerialize
in a chain-reaction
The origin of
the universe
is unknown
and it's sudden end
fails to be understood


by it's oblivious
occupants
but knowledge is worthless
in the cosmic scheme
and life on earth is
insignificant
the era of orbital forces,
matter and energy is over
the universe will take it's course
a mysterious initiation
the universe will take it's course
a mysterious initiation

atoms
dissolve
the end
of days
scrambling matter
and disorientation
of existence
