1. Apocalyptic (2:30)
I saw a star
Coming forth from the tomb of the mutilated
It was given a mouth to spew forth
Perverted words of gore
Seeking only to twist the psyche
Scarring the innocent, betraying the young
With hate and power driving their lies

Hideous thoughts penetrate
Impressioning the mind
Then left to burn inside
'Til acted out in crime

Spread the vile infection
You have no need to fear
Cast off all discretion
The ACLU will protect you here

Hide behind your "freedom"
And say what you will
Each uttered word shall be weighed
Each thought exposed, revealed

Hideous thoughts penetrate
Impressions on the mind
Then left to burn inside
'Til acted out in crime

Lechery
Pornography
Idiocy
When will it end?
Autonomy
Debauchery
Lunacy
You cherish your vice
Assert your rights
Mock now
Turn not
And judgment will come
2. Darkened by Hatred (2:52)
An immense suffering
Lips charred from hypocrisy
It passes under your eyes
Promises broken
As the bridges you've burned immolate the friendship
My wish is to forgive
Yet my rage wants to kill
Take what you give
None of this makes sense
None of this makes sense
All I see is red

Darkened by hatred
Plagued by fear
Deafened by anger
And stone-hearted will

Neverending pain, neverending conflict
Destroys trust
Promises broken
As the bridges you've burned immolate the friendship
Clamoring again to usurp the throne
Madness on display
I want you to die
I want you to die the way I have

Through truth
Most painful and beautiful
The truth that gives us the answers
That we seek to hide from
Let all men be liars
Let God's word be true

Darkened by hatred
Plagued by fear
Deafened by anger
And stone-hearted will
3. Unsung Hero (3:57)
Unto us bleeds love from ordered chaos
Spectators zealously look as their hopes die
Upon a floor of despisement
Will flowers ever grow in these open wounds?

Or does the sorrow that binds us
Tie its knot too tight?
Grace now a relic that youth
Stare at through museum glass

Still they are ignorant of
Silent evisceration
Feral display prevails
Among this generation

Awakened torrents of rain
Swept mankind from the earth
Terror and fire will consume
Wretched jetsam of creation

Where did the heroes go, and who now stands?
Do all flee the rock in search of shifting sands?
Sands of time cease not for human whim
When our time is time we behold Him

Still they are ignorant of
Silent evisceration
Feral display prevails
Among this generation

Awakened torrents of rain
Swept mankind from the earth
Terror and fire will consume
Wretched jetsam of creation
4. If Not Emasculated (4:10)
someone must have thought our representatives
were the beasts and wife abusers
"take the sons of this generation
and clothe them in colorless dresses"

Jesus entered the temple marketplace
felt his fists grow tighter
walked up to the nearest salesman
flipped the blasphemed table over

"make him sensitive"
"make him soft and spineless"
"how will he be safe if not emasculated?"

someone must have thought the way to peacefulness
was to exalt the feminine
now we're heroless, children motherless
and how closer is the vision?

Jesus gathered the broken fishermen
Who will go with me?
Who will fight with me?
Who will die with me?
Who will lead with me?
Who will be a man with me?
5. Sex with Death (3:15)
A thought enters
The flesh deceives
She's hurt, crying
As she goes down on her knees
It's a smokescreen
The false erotic terrorizes
Broken
And alone in mourning
She knew it was a lie
But now
Her innocence is sucked away

Morning daylight brings
A sorrowful reality
He went in, took from her
Pleasured her to fill his void
Broken
And alone in mourning
She knew it was a lie
But now
Her innocence is sucked away
She feels nothing but these lies

Sex with death
This monster now is laughing
This body, the house
For sex now dead

She embraces her next partner
Deep inside she dies
Kisses her life goodbye
Sex with death
Sex with death

The mortal corpse interred
Her gravestone tells the same sad story:
"The wage of sin is death"
"Killed by desire,
only to wake
and kill myself again
welcome to sin"
Ask her if it's worth it.
6. Thieves (3:59)
In your kingdom, would you remember me?
Secure my black pardon, compensate my misery?
My Lord (for though these rusted nails pierce my corrupted flesh)
Oh my Lord (Ihave purchased nothing.)
In your kingdom, would you remember me?
all the things that I have owned
have turned to dust in my hands
and now even the whores would spit on me
I cannot take but receive
so receive me
receive me

In your kingdom, would you remember me?
Send water, send angels
Quench my subtle tyranny
My Lord (even my hatred now does not feed my soul)
Oh my Lord (it is worms in my stomach)
In your kingdom, would you remember me?
Lord, receive my spirit
7. Defilement (2:05)
Skin torn, blood flow
Limbs tied, throat exposed
On the altar of eternity the sacrifice has been prepared
Offering of indemnity
The justified look on their Lord
Another offering
Is now commencing

Sacrifice of the evil
Must be crushed
Burned
Pinned forever to its cross

Defilement

Skin torn, blood flow
Followers of the dragon tied to the altar

Sacrifice of the evil
Must be crushed
Burned
Pinned forever to its cross

This is not a game
This is not a game
8. Independence (5:34)
He said
"Anyone who comes to me shall not perish
But have everlasting life."
He said "anyone who invites me in
I will come in and dine"
"And anyone who does what I command abides in me and I in him
But alone the branches will fade and wither
And be cast into eternal flames"

Independence
How does it feel now on your own?
Independence
Does your rebellion keep you warm?
Independence
Your self-reliance make you strong?
Independence
How does it feel now on your own?

The doors to the banquet hall are closing
9. Salt Solution Suicide (2:24)
10. Tears from an Angel in Mourning (2:29)
Beyond a thread of recognition
lies a decimated frame
screams tear the evening soul
she looks upon the purity

Mindless method leads
to dissatisfaction
death, not drinking
from the cup

In angelic mourning she is weeping
alabaster face is streaked with sanguine tears
fragile bodies writhe in pain
and fill her skies

Mindless method leads
to dissatisfaction
death, not drinking
from the cup

Tears that burn
Blood that stains
Searing screaming
That is yours

You are soaring on the wings of reprobation
to a dying, distant place
fading home of the undead
now look upon the purity

Bones de-marrowed turn to apathetic dust
She is looking down
Now only blood is left.
11. The Butchering of Relative Thinking (5:44)
In place of incluence
Invincible position
The lie you believe in
Awaiting a response, no one stands
When you attack my God
And His precious, precious truth

Fabricated truth spurts forth from your intellectual wounds
Crushing hammers to the skull of rationality
Seeking to obliterate truth from the lips of the beautiful
Malignancy eats at your soul

Pride
All you have left
Ad hominem
Your last defense

Year in, year out
You seek out one to slaughter
To intellectually torture and dismember
Upon a table of philosophical butchery
Perverse
You desire to hear them cry out

Sick man you are
Believing your "truth" can save you
You and your 'hammers will lie gutted and severed
Not a threat, but a promise of your future

My heart takes over my body
I rise, you laugh
You draw your hammer, try to break my skull of objective distinctions
All eyes are fixed, for we are in the battlefield of ideas
You desire my parents' philosophy to be my weapon
I choose the chainsaw, objective truth never hurt like this
Such power, so much force, your arguments lie bloody and severed
Beneath a mangled heap of subjective thinking

Pride
All you have left
Ad hominem
Your last defense

The final blow
My chainsaw rips the lies from your heart
But eternal truth can stitch the incision and wipe away the tears
Yourself enslaved, yet you have a choice
Eyes fixed on your broken corpse, you realize your fault

I hate you not
God hates you not
You need fear not
Truth just killed you

I hate you not
God hates you not
You need fear not
Truth wil revive you
12. Damnation Undone (1:08)
Once to die, then the judgment
Spare yourself from the burning flames
Torment or love eternal
Receive the blood of the holy Son
Eternally live now with damnation undone
