1. Remnant Fauna (5:47)
Organisms formed from smoke and embers,
Living things crouched in ash.
Links on the beast-chain
Contort through time’s prism.

Presences expanding,
Shadow-seeping gulfs,
Time’s nictitating membrane.

Staggering eons molting,
Finding new form;
Pounding through primordial flesh.

Flame, ferox, blood - We dig out all fires.
Doors behind doors - We dig out all fires.

Shadows project giants,
Presences howling from the past.
Chasing the spoor back toward the monolithic.
2. Across the Expanse of Nothing (7:57)
The glottal language
From the fulcrum of the universe,
A wordless voice
Carried from its systolic core.

The silent rhythm
That pumps across
An expanse of nothing,
Beating life into limbs.

The original howl
From the first parturition.
A ruptured stillness
More silent than the whispers of god.

The pain before stars.
The pain before god.
The pain before man.

Sleeping demiurge:
Dreaming of the gods who dream of man.

The syncretic heart of all.

Secular ripples:
The pain of all that is.
3. Sublunar Hex (7:22)
Thoughts fall like stones
Through dark wells.
Wells of muscle and blood.
Wells of bone and spirit.

A black body.
Lightless, unknowable.
The surface opens
To receive the curse.

The Earth howled in private disorder.
Vascular poison
Streamed outward,
Seeping into the guts.

A deep, black hex.
The human stain leeching through soiled millennia.

Cast back to pools of creation,
It’s sardonic design the antic mechanism of the mind.
4. Primal Attunement - The Gloom Epoch (12:57)
Threading through imbricate worlds.
The non-linear veins of time.
A doorway to a doorway from.

Wide open tracts,
The Gloom Epoch.
Encircling horizon.

The aeons scathed
Beast threshold,
Fine antlers swallowed by peat.

Primal attunement,
The ore of blood
Rushing to its magnetic core.

The lodestone of instinct
From Molecular
Depths of vanished time.

The certainty of disintegration.
Time’s relentless advance.

Struck like an arrow
Straight and true
Toward disharmony.

Lava fields,
Peat lands,
Wastes of sand,
Endless migration.

Gleaming black grains
In advancing lines,
Degrading everything.

The present is the aftermath,
Waiting for the fall.
5. Telluric Tongues (Roaring into the Earth) (6:30)
Telluric tongues
Follow veins of stone
To mutter on archaic floors.

Rushing backward,
Through milt, through waves
And into the blasted days.

Roped veins ulcerate time
Gushing through,
Pouring over the membrane.

The present destroys the past,
Howling into the future.
A thunderbolt roaring into the earth.
