1. The Violent Fury (3:54)
I am the author of death

Behold, for thy vision is in our midst
In the shadows of the purest transcendence
Time is a river ever flowing
For death is the everlasting cycle of life
Shall I embellish the seas of change
Must I embrace this departing life
For all mankind shall fall before us
The wicked that shall engulf the earth

I am the composer of pain
Centuries of accumulative drought
I am the composer of pain
Aeons of assimilation destroyed
I am the composer of pain
The storm that no one shall escape
I am the composer of pain
Initiate the command to destroy

Behold, as he permeates through the land
For it is he and only he who can absolve us
Savior of salvation
Or demigod of malice
Transcending the knowledge of days once born
Beneath the lies of rhetoric
Scolding rainfall
Shall wash us away off the face of this scorched earth

For in the beginning there was naught
Creator of the damned, exiled into solitude
I succumb to your infinite power
I embrace your curse of humanity's fall
I succumb to your infinite power
2. What Lies Beyond (3:08)
Out of the dark landscape
Is the fall of this ancient land
The scale and enormity of this disaster
Nothing at all remains
Decimated by the will of our gods
Leaving all in ruin
Out of the heavens came the furnace of flames
With ignited infernos
Fires spread across the lands
Absolving ancient cities in its path

Leaving devastation in its wake
Flash floods creating liquified ground
Under the veil of deceit and disdain
A catastrophe of devastating power

Ruins of a lost civilization
What lies beneath the waves of despair
The collapse of glorious land and its downfall
As the world crumbled beneath their feet

Unveiled wonders of a time now passed
Searing ash and burning flesh
The avalanche of doom
In the marsh lies remains of the past
Terrifying sight of death
The favor of the gods

The haunting ruins is what lies beneath
Sheer savagery and brutal viciousness
It shattered the foundations of society
Within the demise of a land once thriving
Absolve me

Under the blazing sun lies a world of phenom
The fabled palace upon the mountains
Stranded in puritanical sand
The empire of the lost temples
3. Vengeance Striketh (4:39)
With vengeance I must striketh down
Thy enemies of our kingdom
Fled and sheltered by the flock of angels downtrodden
Cast out by the sacred
Bound and shackled till extinction
Now withered away into darkness
Erased from the annals of history
Have you no mercy

In the stillness of black
I shall destroy the world
Of purpose and desire from spite
I have spoken, I have arisen

Salvation lies ahead
Or shall we wither away into darkness
Devastating in thy authoritative approach
I shall activate an emerging threat of doom
Culminating into a storm of beckoning cries
Disintegration of all that once was
We must dismantle this society of lies
Society of lies

Following ones path into the light
Punished from the wrongs of our kind
Annihilation of this sacred land
The task that now must be complete

Detestable, deplorable, yet fleeting in all its glory
There shall not be any noble deaths
For the world as we know it is now absolved
Iniquitous, malevolent, born evil from thy inception
Conjuring this catastrophic drought
Seizing earth's precipitating fall

You shall become descendants of my own image
I shall reign over the wonder of awe
I shall impose scarcity over man
As your penance is the downfall of all
4. Nothingness of Being (5:02)
Life so sacred yet here I stand
Cursed with sorrow and a penchant for death
May I enter the void of loss
In the presence of those whom have perished

As I enter the chasm of emptiness
The mythos tells no lies
Mournful spirits fill the air
Lingering amongst the dead

In the labyrinth of terrifying fear
The winds sweep across the trees
Pulling me into their lair
Filled with troubled thoughts of death

The forest of broken dreams and shattered lives
Upon the sea of trees
Lies the depth of all our sorrows
Nothingness of being
I am only a shadow of what was I
Nothing, nothing but a shell left as I

Shunned by the light of the sun
In the realm of hazy dense despair
What sadness lies before me
Awaiting the ghosts of those left to die

As I enter this majestic sprawl
Banished, never to return again
Vengeful thoughts and woeful wounds
An absolute end

In the maze lost upon volcanic rock
Where the veils are transparent
Vestiges of a culture unknown
The universe within us all

The forest of broken dreams and shattered lives
Upon the sea of trees
Lies the depth of all our sorrows
Nothingness of being
I am only a shadow of what was I
Nothing, nothing but a shell left as I

Wounds that no one can heal
Pain that never subsides
Scars... scars that never shall fade

Shall the spirit of the winds engulf me
May the ghosts of the past resolve
May I leave this world behind
In the shadows of yurei absolve

Nothing, nothing but a shell left as I
Nothing, nothing but a shell left as I
5. All Hope Destroyed (5:44)
I see the everlasting face of death and our demise
Shadows of the promised land, spare us our own reprise

The scorched they prevail
Haunted evil
The tortured prevail
Wicked evil

I see your embers fall as you hide in pure disgrace
I watch your spirit fall as you fade into oblivion

O' woeful angst of pure despair
May war and destruction prevail

I hear your endless cries as you
Writhe in sheer distress
I feel your soul now slip away into the endless dark
I sense the numbing void as it
Permeates the land
Now through me I am the vessel of the overcome I stand

The scorched they prevail
Haunted evil
The tortured prevail
Wicked evil

I see your embers fall as you hide in pure disgrace
I watch your spirit fall as you fade into oblivion

Cower no longer for your time has come
For the mantra of lies are now upon us

O' woeful angst of pure despair
May war and destruction prevail

We have all demolished our idols
All of humanity fails
All has fallen of what we cherish
Obliterated by catastrophic epic proportions
All of what we have known now destroyed

Hopelessness has now set in
As the actualization of our fate arrives
May we find the tranquil end
From this endless scourge
6. Portal of Myriad (4:13)
Oracle of the dead
Channeling energy through the tapestries of history
The power of the gods
Through the annals of thy lost text

Absolved of all left rendered
In the labyrinth upon the river styx
The boatman now directs your course
To the sorcery of the blessed

Spirits of the dead
I bestow upon you this offering of blood
As I commune with the dead
In the realm of the ones whom have perished

Transcendence as a conduit to the gods
I prey to meet my end
Outerworldly existence I must find
I prey to meet my end

I must pay homage to our ancestors
Who reside in the netherworld
My life defined by death
I shall not run from the darkness

Hence I shall embrace what lies beneath
The descent into the chamber of dark
Portal of the shaman
Sorceror of the possessed
We are the madness that lurks within

Fear is the beast that swallows mankind
Fear has many faces
Messenger of fire, weaponizing fear
Deities scribed into the annals of death

Seeer of what lies beyond
Medium to the spirits now gone
Upon the chambers of what now eternal lie
In the netherworld of the beyond

In our darkest realm, the lair of descent
The heat burneth beneath my feet
Shaman, speak thy name
In the portal of myriad
Prophetic in absolution
In the grotto beyond the lake of sorrow
The sibyl now grants thy command
As I descend unto the caverns of baia
7. Dark Age of Ruin (3:58)
Total collapse into a sudden end
Of unimaginable horror into the dark unknown
The old kingdom of prosperity no longer
Now degraded into complete unrest

Horrendous depredation
Haunting echoes of tragedies that befell the kingdom
Under charred embers of what remained
Under charred embers of what remained

The sandstorms smothered all the lands
Starvation followed, as resources diminished
Agony over fear of whom survives
The end of the kingdom that once was...

Horrendous depredation
Haunting echoes of tragedies that befell the kingdom
Under charred embers of what remained
Under charred embers of what remained

Devastating wide spread famine and misery
Was the end of all they knew
The scale of unbearable suffering
The dark age of ruin

The floods subsided into survi̇val
Yet the floods had caused the end
Once resiliant as it vanished into ash
From achievement into total chaos

Through atrocities with suffering of despair
Eating of the young commenced
Blasphemies committed in order to survive
Not of rhetoric, hieroglyphics tell no lies

Streaks of black ash line the ground
As the lands turned into churning dust
Revealing the truth of once was
The lake of truths has now vanished

The lake of truths has vanished
8. Upon Desolate Sands (5:01)
Consume me, o' vastness of what lies before me
May I be reborn in your own very image
Revel in the sights of your very essence
Upon this journey I must embark upon
Enamored by your purist beauty
Entranced with your absolute authority

Why must this land of gold depart me
Why must you swallow me whole
On this continual path...

Waters rushed the sands with rapid force
Thrusting one's power unto thee
It drifted upon our glorious shores
Gouging the stones from the earth
Removing all life to considerable depths
Amongst the windswept dunes of mass deposits
Upon the shifting tides of sweltering heat
Depletion of your granular sands
Destruction of your identity

As I meander across this desolate floor
I traverse upon the surface of decay
On a distant shore I now no longer fear
I prey for the definitive end

Hear my cries, as they shatter the universe
Feel my longing, as I ponder on days of old
A life once known to me aeons ago...

Decreasing mass surrounds me
Floods overcome our grounds
Creeping upon the floor of the tide
Marked the sign of the curse
Ever so weakening, powerful, indestructible
Scraping the filth off the earth
Dominating, devastating now rendered unusable

Why must this land of gold depart me
Why must you swallow me whole
On this continual path upon desolate sands
