1. Satan Within (5:23)
MY GAZE IS NOW THAT OF A MADMAN
BLACK REVELATIONS HAVE PRIED OPEN MY EYES
MY SPIRIT HAS BEEN RENDERED IMMORTAL
NOW BEHOLD AS I ASCEND FROM DEPTHS OF DESPAIR

SATAN WITHIN!
ETERNAL SIN!
I SHED MY SKIN!
SATAN WITHIN!

MY PATH IS MY PATH AND MY PATH ALONE
I SHALL CAST ASIDE ALL THINGS SACRED
AND REVEL IN FILTH UNTIL THE END OF DAYS
NOW BEHOLD AS I LAY WASTE TO GOD'S KINGDOM

I SHALL RENOUNCE THEIR FALSE ETHICS
AND URINATE ON SCRIPTURES OF HOLY LIES
FROM THIS DAY FORTH I SHALL BOW TO NONE
NOW BEHOLD AS I PLUNGE HEADLONG INTO DEATH

I - AM - ALL
2. Zenon (5:29)
CONCEPTS ONCE VEILED TO THE WORLD
BEGOTTEN IN CEREBRAL FISSURES
ONE MIND, THIS REVOLUTIONARY CELL
A LIGHT BEING SPRUNG FROM DARKNESS

NOURISHED BY AN INTRINSIC VOID
HIDDEN AWAY, PROTECTED FROM IMPACT
EVOLVING INTO AN INCURABLE DISEASE
UNLEASHED UPON A WORLD OF IGNORANCE

THOUGHT
REFLECTION
IRON WILL
WEAPONS OF WAR TO DEPLOY
IDEAS WITH POWER TO DESTROY
AND BUILD ANEW…

ZENON! THY BEING WAS THE VERY FIRST
TO BE RIDDEN WITH THIS BLESSED DISEASE
THY ESSENCE SUGGESTED EXPECTATIONS
OF AWAKENING - A WORLDWIDE EPIDEMIC

THE ANSWER LIES WITHIN
OTHERS WILL DESERT YOU
STEEL YOUR EMOTIONS
AND LIFE WILL NOT HURT YOU
3. The Abyss Speaks (6:28)
HOPE IS IN ITS DEATH THROES
A FLICKERING LIGHT, STRIPPED OF ITS MIGHT
AT THE WRONG SIDE OF A ZERO-SUM GAME
SEA OF MISERY, DROWNS EVERY CHANCE OF VICTORY
THIS POISONOUS SEED PLANTED SO DEEP
GROWTH OF MADNESS, A ROOTED SADNESS
BRANCHES ITSELF INTO EVERY LINE OF THOUGHT
COME PESTICIDE, COME SUICIDE

IT WILL NEVER GO TO SLEEP
IT WILL NEVER EVER GO AWAY
A DRIVING FORCE
YET A VESSEL OF FATIGUE
IN DARKNESS IT THRIVES
IN DARKNESS IT THRIVES

GET DOWN FROM YOUR THRONE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
CRAWL WITH ME, AND YOU WILL SEE
THAT BEHIND EVERY CYNIC IS A WRONGED IDEALIST
WHOSE HEART GROWS COLDER AS IT GROWS OLDER
THE TRAGEDY OF SUFFERING IS NOT TO SUFFER
IT’S THE THINGS LOST ON THE WAY, GONE ASTRAY
SO SCORCH THE EARTH, SET IT ABLAZE AND RECREATE
RISE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER, TEAR IT ALL ASUNDER
4. Shock Doctrine (5:09)
A PRODUCT OF A PSEUDO-SCIENCE
UNNATURAL MAN-MADE MACHINE
REPRODUCES ITSELF INTO EVERY INSTITUTION
TIPPING THE SCALES IN THEIR FAVOR

SHOCK DOCTRINE - YOU'RE THE MOTHER TUMOUR
SHOCK DOCTRINE - WITH CANCEROUS TENTACLES
SHOCK DOCTRINE - INTO TORTURED NATIONS
SHOCK DOCTRINE - METASTATIC LIMBS RIDDEN WITH DISEASE

COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARY CELL
A PERVERTED MUTATION OF THE MIND
SHADOW GOVERNMENT BEHIND A CURTAIN
THEIR TREATMENT IS EUTHANASIA

SHOCK AND AWE!
SHOCK AND AWE!
SHOCK AND AWE!
SHOCK AND AWE!
5. Uncreation (6:39)
EXISTENCE IS A CURSE
A MALICIOUS, CANCEROUS GROWTH
INCESSANTLY TEARING AWAY
AT THE FIRMAMENT OF DEATH

FROM THE MOMENT OF INCEPTION
PERPETUAL ROTTING AND DECAY
A POIGNANT YEARNING
TO RELAPSE INTO OBLIVION

THIS CURSE IS UNHOLY
A PLAGUE UNTIL THE VERY LAST BREATH
THIS CURSE KILLS SLOWLY
UNTIL ALL LIFE REVERTS BACK INTO DEATH

CREATION WAS A TRAGEDY
A WRETCHED, REPULSIVE EVENT
DORMANT ESSENCES WERE TORN
FROM THE WOMB OF NOTHINGNESS

INVOKING THE GREAT DAY OF REVOCATION
THE GRAVE IS A GATEWAY TO LIBERATION
6. Tip of the Spear (5:44)
DRAGGED OUT FROM THEIR CASTLES
HANDS TREMBLING WITH FURY
BLAZE AND BLADES IN UNISON
DRAINING THEM OF THEIR MORTALITY
FUMIGATE THEIR TEMPLES
WITH MAD BARBARIC DEVOTION
DIE AS I KILL!
PASSING THE POINT OF NO RETURN

LIFE IS GONE
WHAT HAVE I DONE?

THE TIP OF THE SPEAR
BORN IN DESPAIR, IN A WOLFPACKS’ LAIR
HELLFIRE FROM A SPARK
TOWERING HEATWAVE COMBUSTS THE MONARCH

THE DEED IS DONE
CAN NO LONGER CALL MYSELF HUMAN
A FINAL ACT OF DEFIANCE
SHOOK THE EARTH IN ITS FOUNDATIONS
AN IDEALISTIC CONVICTION
MORPHED INTO PERVERTED ACTIONS
BLOOD ON MY HANDS
DOES THE END JUSTIFY THE MEANS?
7. The Luminous Darkness (2:26)
WITH A FERVENT WILL TO OPPOSE
TO ILLUMINATE FALSE DOCTRINES OF OLD
TO SEEK OUT FORBIDDEN TRUTHS
ALONG THE PATHS OF LUMINOUS DARKNESS

I LET MY BEING BE UTTERLY ENGULFED
BY WISDOM SCORNED BY THE LIKES OF YOU
I WALLOW IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
AND SPIT IN THE FACES OF GODS

INWARD! NETHERWARD!
I DESCEND EVER DEEPER
INTO ARCANE REGIONS OF THE MIND
SELFWARD! DEATHWARD!
THIS DARKNESS COMPELS ME
TO RENOUNCE THE WAYS OF MANKIND

TO MARCH INTO THE GREAT UNSEEN
TO WANDER BEYOND THE HORIZON
TO DELVE INTO THE DEEPEST OF DEPTHS
THIS IS THE TRUE PATH OF ENLIGHTENMENT

SPARKS OF HATE HAVE LIT THIS BLACK FLAME
OF PURE SIGHT WHICH NOW BURNS DEEP IN MY HEART AND LIGHTS MY WAY AS I
DRIFT PAST THE VERGE OF ALL THAT IS KNOWN…
8. Heirs of Sisyphus (8:43)
THE ZEITGEIST OF FEAR HAS RETURNED
THE WAY HAS BEEN PAVED BY THE MEEK
HERE ARE THE INHERITORS OF IGNORANCE
WHO WILL DRAG US ALL INTO DARKNESS
FEEBLE-MINDED INSTIGATORS
REPEAT THE DEEDS OF THEIR FOREFATHERS
AN AVERSION TOWARDS REASON
PASSED ON THROUGH GENERATIONS

AND WE ARE THE BYSTANDERS
POINTING OUR CROOKED FINGERS
WE DO NOTHING, SAY NOTHING
CRIPPLED BY OUR INCAPACITATION

WE’RE THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY
CAUGHT IN A WHEEL OF SUFFERING
VICIOUS CIRCLE OF REINCARNATION
WE’RE THE HEIRS OF SISYPHUS

A BOULDER SHAPED BY OUR WRONGDOINGS
PUSHED UPHILL ON A BLOOD-SOAKED PATHWAY
WHICH LEAVES A TRAIL OF DESPAIR
FOR THE HEIRS OF SISYPHUS

SO MUCH HAS BEEN LOST
BANISHED TO A FUTURE IN THE NETHERWORLD
WHERE THERE’S A SEA FILLED WITH MOURNING SKULLS
OF ALL THOSE WHO ONCE WALKED THE EARTH
FAR IN THE DEEP IS AN ALTAR
ON WHICH OUR INTEGRITY WAS SACRIFICED
TO AN EMPTY SOULS’ DOMAIN
NOW WE REIGN OVER NOTHING
