1. Patriarch (4:30)
We tore down the firmament
Foundations crumbling, defiled
Devoured by untold disappointments and lies
Heaven as a construct
Has failed for man
Now remains a refuge, a lost place to hide

As your world succumbs to mine

Consumed by seven, my children bred as parasites
Disowning heaven, my maggots spread and multiplied
Backs turned to saviours, refuge sought in sin and pain
For she is solace as the tainted rain on terra’s plane

Our father, you failed them
Our father, you failed us all
Our father, I redeem them
Our father, I rule all

The insect’s champion, to scorch your name and undermine
Retribution scars burn black as ice into unfettered vein
A bloodline saved to carry on the word of lambs
Run meekly to the slaughter, her blood shall set free all of man
A thread unbroken that thorn-pierced skull could not deny
A line descending from the loins of sun once sanctified
Her passions fleeting, her future shall be as was dusk
As eve once led the fall, so will she be mine

Lead: ‘Deus Vult’ (Lee James Appleton)

Though my sun be unpartisan, assumed by all to gorge his fill
My daughter’s tributaries shall seek to bring “her” ill
And your heart’s remaining light be dimmed, and your failure…
Complete

Our father, you failed them
Our father, you failed us all
Our father, I redeem them
Our father, I rule all

For thee I gave man
From thee I claimed her womb
From thee I’ll take “her”
And sin will conquer all
2. Embers from a Dying Son (Plague: Gula) (3:58)
I am the mouth that gorges eden’s delight
As all things wrack and ruin, ravenous blight
As I devour gaia
Succulence drained, as we choke on life

What is will not
As choice be twisted ill
Insatiable, relentless
As gut be swollen still
The rape of root and stem
We violate
We consume with no thought for ones to come
As we desecrate

I am the mouth that gorges eden’s delight
As all things wrack and ruin, ravenous blight
As I devour gaia
Succulence drained, as we choke on life

Myopic gluttony to drain our resource now
To take all that she has to offer and deplete her fructuous flower
We take! we break! with burning, grasping hands!
No reverance for the beauty slain, we want it all!

And so we ravage she who gave us life

And so induced into belly distended, to tear apart that which fed your flesh

From sustenance to entitlement

Ecological murder, use outstrips all need
No symbiotic replenishing, you fucking parasites!

Lead: ‘Mesmeric Pandaemonium’ (Lee James Appleton)

Such bounty! such beauty! we must find a way
Yet maw so (over) flowing we are stopped from screaming

Hail moloch! they offer their seed to thee

Our children’s path, razed. denied.
We’ll feed them dust abomination
a host stripped bare, for fear we will be denied
3. Like Gods Departed (Plague: Acedia) (6:48)
Lead: ‘God-shaped hole’ (Lee James Appleton)

Prince of hell, lord of the gap,
Cast your doubts, sow seeds of debate
Invite desire, dubiety
Her path be strewn with thorns ripped from the vine
Take her hand, ba’al peor
Lead her from light into temptation
Take her hope, take her faith
Apathy, deep into her soul

With conscience pricked invade her mind
With horrors of her world no just god would design
When she prays block out “the word”
No comfort ear, just bleed reality
With prayer unanswered, no pain divine
Implant the cancer
Indifference of mind

Let her sink, let her fall
To ask the question…
Has he forsaken us all

My child be pulled back to the light
My child let dream be vessel
Lose not all faith in me for I shall comfort thee

I am in thee and in thee my light, your scars shall be stigmata

Deny enticement, repel seduction
This daemon clouds thy mind with blasphemy

I am in thee and in thee my light, your scars shall be stigmata

Like gods departed, his light extinguished

Belief once strong now shattered
Like gods departed, his truth shall leave me
Like embers burned, as flames be still

And devil make work for idle hands as mischief dances

And faith abandoned sears the soul
Like one who loved and lost

Like gods departed
His light extinguished
Belief once strong now shattered

Like gods departed

Like embers burned, as flames be still
4. Mantra XIII (Plague: Avaritia) (3:31)
Let it reign! A shower of gold for peasants cheer
Spearhead, crusader for victory
Thy worth is worth their fall
As parasite, a leech to suck not bile, but violate
With gluttonous abandon, to steal, to take…
Take! Take! Take!

I am the new icon
I am false idol praised
A paper god to flatter who deceive us
As fattened swine gather to serve me

So quick to turn, all principles abandoned
As evil’s root, I bury my thorns in splendour
I drink my fill
The sweaty need of repulsive obsession
For mammon’s seed is mankind’s true cancer
No conscience shattered, no iron will to bend to mine
Resource plenty, to nurture, to shelter all
As horde grows monstrous still

I am the new icon, I am false idol praised
A paper god to flatter who deceive us
As fattened swine gather to serve themselves

Lead: ‘le malaise vagal’ (paul alan ryan-reader)
Lead: ‘a fine day to lie’ (paul alan ryan-reader)

Yet what do I bring thee? Eternal war!
For dust settles to dust

With no adornment shining

And what do we bring them?
Eternal war
For dust settles to dust
With no adornment shining

I am the new icon
I am false idol praised
5. The Sky Is a Mirror (Plague: Luxuria) (5:32)
Deference, reverence, exaltation
Deception’s crown gleams bright in the sun
A vacuous façade that makes sterile virtue
Build a cult of personality and they will come
To taste the sin of the serpent’s poison
To drink their fill and sate their lust
To give their all in pyrrhic surrender
Another idol replaces another god

Another icon replaces another god
Hollow. a shallow mask conceals all that lies behind this vacant stare that blinds and binds
We give them everything, we yield to esteem
And celebrity trumps all…

Don’t look to the sky
For reflections candour will show just who you are
Eminence bestowed
A lust for grandeur eclipsing truth
Suicide, suicide, don’t you know me?
Willingly submits as prestige calls
To love. to worship with vermin smile

Success be measured as status shines
Decreed in notability
For he shall rise, to conquer all

For all eyes turned to the starlit hand
That guides, manipulates
Born of flickers, of serpent tongue
Born of flickers, of serpent tongue
To feed them offal and eat it
A gift undone

Another icon replaces another god
Hollow.
A shallow mask conceals all that hides behind this vacant stare that blinds and binds
We give them everything, we yield to esteem

As celebrity trumps all
6. Idolatry of Self (Plague: Superbia) (2:35)
No gods no masters
No king of kings
No redeemer born to die
No sin to be washed clean

The world of man in torment
Lies at my feet
A writhing mass of decaying worms to worship me

For vanity
For redemption
For a legacy as ruler of the blind
For victory
For death
For my idolatry of self

Lead: ‘Malignant Narcissim For Beginners’ (Lee James Appleton)

Divine I stand
As the skulls of those who died for “him” shall be my throne
Not for the vengeance
Nor chaos brood
Not for these savages
Created by my infestations

For vanity
For redemption
For a legacy as ruler of the blind

Ugh!

To pulverize
To banish him as he once banished all
To take the throne to be the one through blood and bone
No fall shall follow this ascension

Lead: ‘Culmination Purblind’ (Paul Alan Ryan-reader)

For vanity
For redemption
For a legacy as ruler of the blind
For victory
For death
For my idolatry of self
7. As Vermin Swarm (Plague: Ira) (5:29)
Failure
A rank taste so bitter

So foul
The light of a thousand stars eclipsed by vanity

As facile vermin swarm to deny their bloodborn mourning light
This waste of flesh and bone repulses, undignified
To stumble forth, to sabotage unedified
An embarrassment of rags burned riches bestowed from high

The great deception, that tongues unsplit be forked
Squeeze the lie til sanguine drip, for man shall live for nevermore

Hate reigns, in his name, the god of wrath
Duplicity divine

Their venin poisoned minds
Shall wreak my havoc, roil
Sow discord, no abeyance
For I shall deny their demise

Lead: ‘’suit & tie scum’ (lee james appleton)

Turning and turning in the widening, The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, A blood-dimmed tide, and everywhere; The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand.The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert A shape with lion body and the head of a man,A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun, Is moving its slow thighs, while all about itReel shadows of the indignant desert birds. The darkness drops again; but now I know That twenty (one) centuries of stony sleep Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

‘The Second Coming’ W.B.Yeats, 1919
8. GodFrost (Plague: Invidia) (3:11)
Godfrost, godfrost
Unleash the plague, turn heaven on man
Godfrost. As hell freezes over

I gnaw your ear, ingest your fear
All you have, I hold, to vomit forth regurgitated lies
What once was his ,penetrates
Subversion, distraction, as my tongue flicks deeper

Godfrost, godfrost,
Unleash the plague, turn hell on man
Godfrost, as heaven freezes over

I want it all, it burns to fail
I covet thee and all that is thine

All I want is love, all I want is the one thing I can no longer have

Godfrost, godfrost,
Unleash the plague, turn man on man
Godfrost, as earth freezes over
9. The Burden of Their Scars (6:59)
Awake my child, embrace the winter kiss
A cold caress of tidal fears, pulling you down to drown with me
(or him)

Don’t sleep again my child, for eternity’s breath won’t warm thy sallow eyes again, or see the future scarred
Unbarren you stand as saviour

No choice
We don’t have a choice

Hate!
Redemption’s path once trodden by a mother hated
By many scorned whose rotted, mangled feet did tread through fetid times

The spear which carved his side and rent apart
A splinter for your mind’s eye
A jagged seed which grows (and grows and grows and…)

A hand with fingers splayed and bent and snapped and shattered shall be your
Only corruption, only sedition, only release from the spiral that drips into your mouth

No blessing, no apple fresh, tainted burden
You’ll take his scars, stigmata’s crown
And infect this earth with his poison

You don’t have a choice!

As cancer grown on savage silt
In perdition’s jaws we spawn
As tumour swells to saviour soul
Into chaos’ arms we mourn

Oppression’s child or free will burning? a shard could end it all
His light, my dark, their path, our father fractured to make us fall

My hand, this world, their scars, our hopes we’ve served to kill
The tar shall smother oceans black
Could you kill what you love to save so many (hated) ?
Seven plagues corroding all

Wrath! lust! sloth! greed! envy! pride!
A gluttony
…of sins to pass to offspring born to die
To descend with hated child
To live, to breath, to need, to shun the light
No son could sear or sanctify

We have no choice
We have no choice
We have no choice

We always have a choice
