1. Anno Domini (7:26)
some things in life come full circle
and some things never change
some never learn from their mistakes
this is why history is doomed to repeat (by returning oppression ten fold)
some guilty always go unpunished
even on the cross, some crimes go unpaid
this is what Hell is for, to be afraid
I've found better things in life than being saved (raping, blaspheming the name of Jesus Christ)
no...
victory is ours
die... in 33 A.D.
through history-distorted time
suffer, a day when deities bleed
death to your Jesus Christ
a futile push to reach their goals
look into the dead eyes of unfulfilled souls
who found truth in written fables so bold
and believed the rhetoric dogma they were sold (once you've taken me into your heart, I'm Nailed Right In)
I feel invigorated with youth and vitality (they mislead)
I look at the world with new hope and understanding (they deceive)
enveloped, bask in the warmth of God's love (they believe)
in truth, only until you wake up (diseased)
no... no... no...
victory is ours
die... in 33 A.D.
false prophet, you will not succeed
suffer, as the world sees you weep
bleed, mortal savior, bleed
God died for me
bleed
2. Blood Ink for the Book of Life (5:30)
the rarest times, I beseech thee to feel
a new sunrise, seize the night and day
for gainful purpose, I take the sword of Masonic Templers
and without prompt repeat the lines, "I am that I am"
I see the world and take my place upon this time
I see the world, it is not good, and I can see no God
and no hand of Creation, surely my life is my own to decide
to navigate these troubled waters until my life's end
this is a sojourn, there is no destination
take only what you need to get through the journey of this world
unto the next, I face Divinity, in all it's feigned glory
you will not take this world or my dignity from me
I won't be stricken out from the book of life
I pen my name in my own blood, carving my own path
blood ink for the book of life, signing
my own fate, I am my own sacrifice
if this life could be sold as a box on a shelf
I would not pay any price, you could not name any price
what does this world want from me? my blood? (blood loss)
I will meet life on my own terms
this is a sojourn, there is no destination
it is only the journey that matters now
why did we give up the grave for this?
to help the world to see the unlight?
I see you all are seeking truth
don't know where to turn or where to begin
even with the truth surrounding us all
just open your mind's eyes
there is profound truth in life
and a defining truth in death
I have no secrets to sell (lost souls)
I am as lost as you all (lost souls)
3. Faith of the Fallen (7:28)
the virgin gave birth, to a world under curse
Joseph fashioned the pauper’s coffin you deserve for your life’s work
the sick yet saved, be gone from me
I have wrapped your lies in fragranced silk and heaved a stone before your grave
look closely at the coins you tithe
you’re bribing Judas to betray your mind
thirty pieces of silver was the price
and re-examine all the psalms that you tirade
you’ve fallen victim to a conditional masquerade
a sad charade, where the only object is to be saved
silver tongues recoiled from saving souls
salvation through airwaves ‘cross littered streets paved with hope
in vestige best, deliver a sterling Sabbath performance
hand on the screen, speaking tongues on the false day of rest
it’s time to question all the dogmas both preached and attacked
and scrutinize all of the fables you believe as fact
do you believe moral decay comes from their lack?
just like an organ, you’ve been played since your life began
to the tune of God residing in the hearts of men
now can you stand the weight of all of these sins?
what wicked lies which shield the blind from active minds
truth is the one adversary which no church can survive
‘not perfect, just forgiven’, they claim
but in the end you’ll all never be forgiven by me
the truth is coming down like the walls of your gothic cathedrals
the dead are reaching from the ground beneath your pews
compelling truths more vivid than some lurid gospel
dubious at best are the lies echoed from the pulpit
the blind leading the blind, in a room without light
in this modern-day Aceldama mistaken for peace of mind
there is a real world right beneath your feet
yet you hold out for some evanescent god forever out of reach
phylactery entanglement around your very mind
with the fate of man held in the balance of wasted time
children of Zion, can you hear me?
the world grows tired of sword-point theology
Christianity… no more Christianity… no more
4. Lament Configuration (7:42)
truth hurts so deep, no one knows this more than I
reality’s acrid bitter sting, the sweet taste of beautiful lies
but there is a time to cut one’s losses and walk away
and throw your life into the ocean, sever the mortal chain
just one last time let the heroes wear black
on this eve of despair, there is no turning back
to tread the path where angels fear
abandon hope, all ye who enter here
and now we lay our souls to rest
as sworn in life, so sworn in death
to the prince of darkness, father of life
the son of morning, angel of light
as I was kneeling at the altar of life
youth and best destiny, all sacrificed
had nothing more, emptied to the hollow core
began to view the final exit as just another door
there are those who would follow even in blindness
extract from the writings of the insane
come with me, burn every bridge between Hell and Redemption
and forge a clear passage through the flames
when did this Hell begin, when will it end?
on bended knee, with poisoned pen?
hear these screams for the Father, scream to the Son
scream to the Heavens, makes no difference to anyone
there is darkness on the horizon and the sky is moving fast
If only I stand still the shadows will soon overcast my soul
one day all hearts will stop their beating, we all are counting down to zero
the final exit from the stage of life, last performance, tragic hero
no light resides deep inside
nor in every tear we cry
when at the end of your life
pray you'll never feel my pain
penance for every tear you've shed
upon the right hand of God, stained blood-red
the life we've led, bled spiritually dead
and I would choose that same bleak path again… and again… and again…
5. Land Beyond the Stars (5:24)
when I woke up and realized our values were a myth
it was an epiphany
and the external God separated by myth
was part of the fabric of you and I
we stand at the threshold of time
a vision chilling to the bone
open the doorway to a new beginning for man
and all new glories to behold
we’re tearing through the ties that bind
fools to words and the blind to lies
we’re decimating false facades
battle cry: fuck your God
this world does not deserve salvation
no redemption for the lost generation
where you find refuge, I find rejection
and God does not live here anymore
I have turned each vice into a virtue
but the Church has turned virtue to vice
mourn your faith, bask in it’s disgrace
I’ve declared war on the world of lies
I've reached for the prize of Paradise as it fades from my grasp
In the Garden forbidden fruit turns sour, turned rotten in my hands
seeking truth in darkness, thorns cut into the brow of the icon of every faith
let me be the one to cast the first stone at the human race
have you ever been in a crowded room and remain utterly alone?
an uncommon destiny not to be shared, haven’t you known all along?
born into the Abyss, stand against the wind, steadfast and sure
toiling against the heavens, only to inherit the wind, still I endure
all for the ingrates…
let me be the one to cast the first stone at the human race
no pearl of wisdom, nary a grain of sand
in all your collective knowledge
all I see is emptiness
a desire to leave this place and not return
nothing left for me in the accursed Earth
and never to return… never to return
The final stage of evolution ….
It was but a conscious decision
rise up and leave the shell of a body behind
now departed for the land beyond the stars… land beyond the stars… land beyond the stars
6. The Red Spiral (4:29)
7. Revel in the Ashes (7:13)
when science was in it's fetal stage, the church tried to kill it in the womb
and when science was in it's infancy, they tried to strangle it in the crib
and when science was in it's adolescence, they belittled everything they could
and when science reached it's adulthood, they spoke of peace, conspiring still... still...
the essence of truth was as alien to them
as the knowledge between wrong and right
can't take my hand from the throat 'till the pulse is gone
can't be ever deterred from finishing this fight
the heretical quest for knowledge
the indulgent sin of pride
I see a brave new world
I see a Phoenix rise
the heretical quest for knowledge
the indulgent sin of pride
I see a brave new world
I see a Phoenix rise
every day another step forward into the future
exploring the unknowns, refining our crafts
accelerating our own human evolution
dispel superstition in our path, the demons of the past
the essence of truth will be revealed to us
the first to reach the finish line
will be those excommunicated from the church
to share in their ranks I take a measure of pride
the heretical quest for knowledge
the philosophy and the meaning of life
this is a brave new world, these are exciting times
and we are the Phoenix, behold a Phoenix rise
let's hail the sun of brand new day
and let all of our sins wash away
and at the fountain's edge throw down our crutch
and revel in the ashes of a dying church
from the charred remains of yesterday
blood-tainted past now washed away
for we stand at the threshold, to measure our own worth
and celebrate in the ashes of a forgotten church
I'll revel in the ashes
and the world will call me mad
I'll revel in the ashes
of a long forgotten past
I'll revel in the ashes
and the world will call me mad
I'll revel in the ash
a forgotten church
8. Sacrificial Feticide (3:13)
fetus used in experiments
new hope for those yet alive
aborted fetus lies in abundance
aid to depopulate human life
fetus sacrificed, and cannibalized
fetus used in satanic rites
forced impregnation, forced into labor
ritual abuse performed, fetus dead-born
feed us, fetus
(repeat)
potential human, accidental life
watch me show you true love with a surgical knife
or a vacuum pump, that's where my heart lies
I believe you are a precious being, and so you deserve to die
feed us, fetus
(repeat)
the church hates abortion because it grows from these very human gutter spawn
but there are those of us who’ve been dying since the day that we were born how amusing to upset the crowd of the protesting pro-life
back alley abortionists, operating underground in the dead of night
I wouldn't wish this world on anyone, or this rotten life
those who did not ask to be born, to live, suffer until they die
this is how I abuse a mother’s fucking right to choose
I would do anything to ensure that there are fewer of you
feed us, fetus
(repeat)
fetus used in experiments
new hope for those yet alive
aborted fetus lies in abundance
aid to depopulate human life
fetus sacrificed, and cannibalized
fetus used in satanic rites
forced impregnation, forced into labor
ritual abuse performed, fetus dead-born
9. Remember the Fallen (Sodom cover) (4:42)
Honour the fallen heroes
See their last resting place
Perished in the battle of nations
Where they found eternal peace
Do you know the use of their decorations?
Awarded for patriotism
They left their life in fire
But don't know even why

Remember the fallen
Remember the fallen

To the command of despotic dictators
They marched to fight in a senseless war
Most of them were just puppets and children
The battle was lost before it began

Brotherly in heart and hand
Know that they never come back
With combined effort
And the believe in god
Their duty only as cannon fodder
Kamikaze as living bombs
Driven into the open knife
Deceitful and malicious

Remember the fallen
Remember the fallen

Their tormented souls will never rest
To pay us back for their innocent death
No quarter shed our proud blood
Retaliation on the warpath
10. Dominum Deum (2:35)
11. Blood Ink (alternate mix) (5:24)
the rarest times, I beseech thee to feel
a new sunrise, seize the night and day
for gainful purpose, I take the sword of Masonic Templers
and without prompt repeat the lines, "I am that I am"
I see the world and take my place upon this time
I see the world, it is not good, and I can see no God
and no hand of Creation, surely my life is my own to decide
to navigate these troubled waters until my life's end
this is a sojourn, there is no destination
take only what you need to get through the journey of this world
unto the next, I face Divinity, in all it's feigned glory
you will not take this world or my dignity from me
I won't be stricken out from the book of life
I pen my name in my own blood, carving my own path
blood ink for the book of life, signing
my own fate, I am my own sacrifice
if this life could be sold as a box on a shelf
I would not pay any price, you could not name any price
what does this world want from me? my blood? (blood loss)
I will meet life on my own terms
this is a sojourn, there is no destination
it is only the journey that matters now
why did we give up the grave for this?
to help the world to see the unlight?
I see you all are seeking truth
don't know where to turn or where to begin
even with the truth surrounding us all
just open your mind's eyes
there is profound truth in life
and a defining truth in death
I have no secrets to sell (lost souls)
I am as lost as you all (lost souls)
