1. Damnatio Memoriae (4:33)
My heaven differs from yours.
Where is the loving light? Where is the eternal peace?
Desolate, grey, tyrannic, lonesome
Lit with my passion to burn

I do, however, see a kingdom.
Paved by the bones of the innocent
Washed by the blood of the weak
Built for mortals who empty the bowls of the earth
In search of glittering shit
while he rests upon His everlasting throne.

The source of light, warmth and love,
commands the children's hearts to flow with passion,
as it commands their cells cancerous,
To love a figure, so careless, negligent, irresponsible, indifferent
One who made us in his image, hateful, vicious, savage, ruthless
Is to love nothing but filth, oozing with decay,
remnants of fear-worship by an undeveloped mind

Lest I be tested by trials and fears so deep,
My heart prayer to know
A sin to the Wolf in me
An offence I cannot allow

And should my decaying body ask for warmth,
I rather direct it to the raging fire than to this hypocritical light

Fury, wrath, rage,
lust, and sulfur,
you are the bone of my bones,
the essence of my marrow,
my grapes of wrath,
the shadows of my busy days,
the demons of my lonesome nights,
I possess your very existence,
I command thee by the power of my will,
Cloud my beating heart,
cleanse my soul,
ravage my mind till it's free of this weakness,
curse any remains of their existence, of their memory,
Blight upon blight upon blight upon blight upon blight upon blight upon blight upon blight

This world’s salvation is in one resolution
Retaliate with your nails, your teeth and choke them with your veins
If all fails, curse them from beyond the grave
Eradicate them from all memory, Damnation Memoriae
2. Barren Lands (5:25)
Cloak me from the scorching cursed-sun
Parched with no life to draught
These figures roam in absolute chaos and turmoil
soulless!! purposeless!! tottering emotionless

Life has no toll, death reigns over all
Echoed the dunes across the desert sands

This yellow pit is closing in on me
I'm drowning inside the motionless sands
It's a vortex of pleasures and apathy
A nausea of a distorted reality

Life has no toll, death reigns over all
Echoed the dunes across the desert sands

My flesh burns, refusing this decadence
My final testament will be, a prayer to the Gods of Detriment
Ignite the oil planes, whatever Lord is listening
Democracy to the sands, set it all afire
3. Raging HellFire (4:24)
I do not fear the process of damnation
Hell does not petrify me
Third World and Third Gates
We are all Dante here, it's not poetic, it's not an epic
Everyday we burn by a raging fire

The fires of a thousand suns
Rage within my heart
Sulfur flows within my arteries
Seeds of the unjust I witness while you sleep

If you gouge my eyes to shun them from the horror
If you strike my ears with a burning stick to silence the cries
And if these parts believe in your gods of mercy
I promise to cut them off and throw them to wolves

Cursed be the nights
Cursed be the days
Cursed the moments in between

We drown our broken dreams in substance
We poison our veins to forget
We burn in perdition forever

Here, where patriotism and ignorance are strength.
4. Venom of Exalt (4:34)
The preacher lies
Drowning the world into centuries of ignorance
Revoking knowledge, Revoking strength
Dethroning consciousness, crowning iconography
Aware, beware, from enlightenment to sheepskin.

The preacher lies
Spitting poison through dialects of revelations
Whispering deceit into the wombs of mothers
Planting our fall by seeds of discord
Turning you into lamb of clemency

Cut the head of the snake
Grind your teeth till it is done
Silence its venom of exalt
No reverence for reverend nor crown

To forge liberation, nigher
Ignite, sound the crackle of the pyre
Raise the flames higher, higher
Throw them all into the fire

Cut the head of the snake
Grind your teeth till it is done
Silence its venom of exalt
No reverence for reverend nor crown

To forge liberation, nigher
Ignite, sound the crackle of the pyre
Raise the flames higher, higher
Throw them all into the fire

From Pharaohs of old to Pharaohs of gold
Burn your idols and scatter their ashes
Brake your shackles to the ground
Ablaze, inflame and burn them all

Cut the head of the snake
Grind your teeth till it is done
Silence its venom of exalt
No reverence for reverend nor crown
5. The Will (5:40)
Above the firmament of your gods
Below the pits of their fires
Therein life and the beating heart
One which you languish over the known and the unknown

It is but the nature of man
Lonely in birth as in death
For we carry nothing to the grave
But the knowledge, in this life, we gain

Heed, be earnest, I beseech thee

Does sulfur flow through your veins?
Do you need to burn?
Or has life scorned you dull?

Has it ever occurred to you that
This calling is but a manifestation
We inherited the will of Prometheus
We burn in memory of his fire
We shiver for each strike of the eagle
We hunger for freedom

DELIVER

Heed, be earnest, I implore thee

Do you shiver the nights with a fever, seeking answers?
As a rabid beast thirsts for blood,
Are you haunted by an unknown hunger?
6. Non Serviam (4:44)
As long as the bloodline dictates the blood line
I, man, deny, defy, negate the before and the afterlife.
Curse your revelations, Fuck your Armageddon
Free yourself, take my hand and march for doctrine’s funeral

Death to all belonging
If a chain dares hold you down,
break its metal by the hammer of will.
belong to no land, kneel for no one.

Non fucking serviam.
I screamed these words before
and I will scream with every breath.
Non fucking serviam.

Hell is here, hell is now,
Hell is in the mind of man,
Hell is fate, hell is surrender

Dust to man and man to dust
Eminent, regardless of how low you bow
Dust to man and man to dust
Feed the fire or feed the crow
7. Light of Compassion (4:27)
We burn in silence, we burn in pain
Buried under the weight of our collective fears
Terrified of being charged with a felony such as
Being caught exhibiting human sentiments

Quarantined and exiled
Raised at a pedestal
Behold the culprit
A Vermin to the system

Do you recall a time of peace?
An absolute absence of war?
Their conflict, our struggle,
never to be won

This world cannot be made by the figures they preach
A light of love and compassion while
Wombs shed tears of blood in mourning
For the lives they add to this sickening world

It's a shame what mankind has become
Man-kind, what an oxymoron anyway
We're terrified of talking
Communication has come to an absolute halt

We build walls to shun empathy
We erect cold walls in the name of humanity
We display memorials of our savagery
Which we hang in civilised galleries

We poison ourselves to purge inner-self

This world cannot be made by the figures they preach
A light of love and compassion while
Wombs shed tears of blood in mourning
For the lives they add to this sickening world

It's a shame what mankind has become
Man-kind, what an oxymoron anyway
We're terrified of talking
Communication has come to an absolute halt

We build walls to shun empathy
We erect cold walls in the name of humanity
8. Into the Mouth of Kaos (4:16)
The absolute definition of insanity is man's life;
you burn your days, rushing through,
yet you continuously look back at yesteryear with a sigh,
while still pissing away today.
Over, and over, and over, and over again.
Over, and over, and over, and over again.

An imprisoned easy life instead of freedom,
domesticated, you surround yourself by people who don’t fucking matter,
intoxicated by poisonous media, slow seated death, for a timely cheque,
modern slavery for the modern man, drown into the century of panic attacks

This system that man created, is but a virus with a single purpose,
nothing but self annihilation, it lives off the host until the host is parched.

Driven by an insatiable lust, it performs its natural order and kills itself.
Self termination by depletion,
Day after day after day after day
you hunch to the grave.

To belong to a society that doesn’t give a shit
Perform, produce, masticate, reproduce
a dead man’s cycle

You did forget how to breathe, how to dream, how to feel, how to care, how to laugh and how to scream
In this Chaotic Eon be a wolf
Break from the herd, from the sheep
be a wolf, In this Chaotic Eon

Into the mouth of chaos we descend
Out of the chaos as wolves we're reborn
Into the mouth of chaos we descend
Out of the chaos we drink our skulls full

Into the mouth of chaos we descend
Out of the chaos as wolves we're reborn
Into the mouth of chaos we descend
Out of the chaos we drink our skulls full

Chaos is the one law of nature
Wolves dance amidst its storm
Tame man is a broken man, accept not this absurd world
Refute, refuse, reject, reconnect, recollect, reclaim your mind

Here's to us, the few, we who drink to the stars while we howl at the moon
Ad noctum, for the fabrics of the night love madness and in madness our souls resonate

In this Chaotic Eon be a wolf
Break from the herd, from the sheep
be a wolf, In this Chaotic Eon

Into the mouth of chaos we descend
Out of the chaos as wolves we're reborn
Into the mouth of chaos we descend
Out of the chaos we drink our skulls full
9. A Breath (4:56)
She, the tempest, a somber sensual divinity
She swallows the moon only for the moon to be reborn through her womb
Her frailty resembles the bones of the earth
Slender, Yet no chains could hold her ankle nor her mind

I, Fenrir, the all consuming death
An engulfing darkness which plummets from my lips unto hers
Slithering down her throat, clenching her soul
As her stomach contracts with every blood-red wine breath she draws from mine

We wrap our bodies in a beautiful shroud of black till the world is no more
The sickening lie that is light, suffocates
Its absence hides only the fears of the meek
Darkness descends with none but a familiar face

When our nakedness collides, the universe we become
Constellations, energy, life, death and rebirth
Her destructive fire, rages yet subtracts
And the myriad of tongues in which we speak are rendered to none
