1. A Testament to Failure (6:03)
A semblance of life fades from this existence
Underneath a canopy of dying stars.
Constellations weave patterns in the sky
A testament to failure has become enshrined.

In the night, I feel the presence of the divine
But redemption shall always remain elusive.

Each step I take brings me closer to the grave
Yet I have no fear, for I feel nothing
Dressed in the skin of my enemies
I cannot escape their touch
All that remains is emptiness within me
All that I had was never enough

In the night, I feel the presence of the divine
But redemption shall always remain elusive.

A semblance of life fades from this existence
Underneath a canopy of dying stars.
Constellations weave patterns in the sky
A testament to failure has become enshrined.
2. Where Nonexistence Is All (3:59)
Has led to only infinite questions.
For there are no answers and there is no reason
We are creatures of habit and pattern
No better than the vermin below us
With no conscience and no ambition.

An abyss of nothingness
Is where our deepest hopes dwell.
Surrounded by a void
Where nonexistence is all.

Beyond the doors that hold the great illusion
I have found more distortions of reality.

For there are no answers and there is no reason
We are creatures of habit and pattern
No better than the vermin below us
With no conscience and no ambition.

An abyss of nothingness
Is where our deepest hopes dwell.
Surrounded by a void
Where nonexistence is all.

Where nonexistence is all-consuming
3. Depths of Isolation (5:25)
There are nameless depths yet to be known
Buried deep within the confines of my soul.

Descending to the depths of isolation

Here is where the emptiness consumes me
A shadow cast upon my existence.

Each night I revisit these memories
Seeking resolution and always finding nothing.

Possessed by a fever of abhorrence
Feeding off the grief of the fallen

Doomed to wander these corridors of thought
As I suffocate under the weight of my discretion

I shall remain in the depths of isolation
4. Consuming the Aurora (5:12)
In the nightfall, I travel to places long forgotten
Home to thoughts both real and imagined
The realm of the impossible, a void
Where there is no solace and no escape.

This night is endless
Obsidian skies reflect no light

Twisting through time and space
A contortion of the natural shape

Shadows dance across the faces
Of strangers who I’ve never met
Yet they all seem too familiar
Edging closer with every step

Arrays of light reflect through infinity
Before dissolving once again

Twisting through time and space
A contortion of the natural shape
5. Infernal Cadence (4:51)
A distant shadow, a fading memory
That exists to bring only torment.
A hideous dream, a life-long funeral
Cursed among these apparitions.
Forever bound to these visions
They repeat incessantly.
I would carve my eyes from their sockets
If it meant never seeing these mistakes again.
Marching toward the goal
In search of victory I sacrificed my soul
I have become that which I despise
Forever bound to these visions
They repeat incessantly.
I would carve my eyes from their sockets
If it meant never seeing these mistakes again.
Marching toward the goal
In search of victory I sacrificed my soul
I will not submit.
I refuse to die for your misguided virtues
Smoke and ash will fill the sky as the eternal conflict wages.
The sounds of suffering form an infernal cadence
I have lived through this before and nothing ever changes.
6. Arcane Ascension (4:34)
There is no grace to be witnessed
No ascension to be blessed
Only the barren words of man
Echoing throughout these infinite cells
Promising to cure you of your ailments
And giving nothing in the end
Only addictions and cancer
An endless fountain of cash
Hear me as I call upon your name
Great bringer of destruction and pain.
I’ve watched the light drain from your eyes
You’re just a shadow of the past.
Crawling through the dirt and waste
Endlessly seeking some form of escape.
But we are all condemned to repeat
The failures we create each day.
A personal hell of banal existence
And reliving our greatest sorrows
Hear me as I call upon your name
Great bringer of destruction and pain.
This body is a curse, a casket wrapped in flesh
Content and satisfied with vacant ambience
Transmitting the plague of apathy
Ushering in a new wave of detachment
7. A Garden Lies Barren (7:20)
Behold the creation
Of that which is hidden
From inquisitive eyes
And hearts longing for adoration
Staring through the glass
That separates these dimensions.
A garden full of thorns
That betrays its exterior
Bliss lies in unknowing
And is shattered by insight.
Understanding can be found
Upon destroying all that is beloved
Sanctified in waters of the pristine
Enriching the surroundings.
A haven of tranquility
An abstraction of thought.
Abandoned by the sands of time
Buried beneath new terrain.
Inaccessible to all
Preserving secrets endlessly.
Bliss lies in unknowing
And is shattered by insight.
Understanding can be found
Upon destroying all that is beloved
8. None Shall Remain (4:23)
Chanting words of allegiance
Praising the work of destruction.
Conditioned to only focus
On the positive aspects.
These days will come to an end
Vanishing in the blink of an eye.
No voices will cry out in pain
Upon attainment, none shall remain
Gathering to observe
The absolute end of an era.
Reflecting on the decisions
That have guided every step.
These days will come to an end
Vanishing in the blink of an eye.
No voices will cry out in pain
Upon attainment, none shall remain
9. As One (5:25)
Staring into the eyes
Of the one who forms the balance
To the dysphoria within me
Never ceases to feel so surreal.
I can only hope that these moments
Will never fade away
Like the last rays of the sun
That abandon us each day
Shrouded in an eclipse
I could not view the world.
Blind to the concept of devotion
I can now embrace your gift
These trials of life only strengthen
The bonds that we have forged.
Walking together as one;
Stronger than our individual sums.
A change has occurred
Within the fabric of my essence
It has made all the difference
Changing the structure within me
There is no way to know
What the future will hold
But I will be satisfied
If I were to die by your side.
