Revocation Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat (2016-05-12)
1. The Hive (3:51)
Signaled by pheromones, the mark of doom's been placed
Death squad deployed, the colony must be erased
Ominous droning of wings echoes on the wind
Swarming elite descend, the slaughter to begin

A superior genus
The highest order of hymenoptera
Horrifying Behemoths
Completely defenseless against the terrors

Infiltrate the hive
A massacre of inferior brethren

Drones rendered helpless in the face of this attack
Unstoppable voracity, nothing can hold them back
Moving with one purpose, killing with efficiency
winged creatures lay siege, from this massacre there will
be no reprieve

Solo

an orgy of evisceration
thoraxes severed by mandibles ravenous
thousands lay gutted from this extirpation so calamitous

succulent larvae, the spoils of war
regurgitating the brood, gorging on gore.
2. Scattering the Flock (5:37)
(Music: Gargiuto)

Spewing bigotry from your pulpit
I will hear no more
No respect for any of your beliefs
Your religion is a bane I abhor

Always the one to cast the first stone
Your hypocrisy is legendary
How much blood must be spilled?
To satisfy a god imaginary

Throughout the ages
How many were persecuted?
To satisfy your beliefs

Total refusal of your message
We don't need to be saved
Will never be a fucking sheep in your flock
Indoctrinated and enslaved
Soldiers of Christ lay down your arms
How many must fall upon your swords?
Preaching discrimination all in the name of your lord

Followers following
Never questioning
The bullshit your swallowing

Shepherd we have scattered your flock
Now your congregation has abandoned you
Inspirer of hate, soon to be defrocked
How pitifully you cling to your archaic views

Preacher we've come for you, to cleanse you of your sins
Forcing your beliefs upon mankind, a holy war you cannot win
Preacher your days are few, the walls are closing in
We will hear nothing more,
zero tolerance for your moral corruption

Shepherd we have scattered your flock
Now your congregation has abandoned you
Inspirer of hate, soon to be defrocked
Pay for the sins of your righteous abuse

(solo: Dave)
3. Arch Fiend (5:52)
(Music: Davidson)

The beast is here with all of us
Exerting its malign influence
Warping and twisting our minds
Molding us to become one with its kind

Invading our homes, poisoning our families
Its influence grows,
slowly becoming one with the beast
Hear its words, its whispers growing louder still
Dividing man against his brother, bending us to its will

We gaze hypnotically into its single glowing eye
Mesmerizing the populace so that we may comply

Behold the archfiend
Harbinger of animosity
Callous and obscene
The lord of lies and bigotry

(solo: Dan)

Indoctrinating our youth, embedding itself within
Staring into the glare,
receiving its hidden transmissions
Bear witness to its corrupting force
Spreading its influence, with iniquity at its source

The demon's power grows
the longer that we remain in a trance
Holding dominion over us, fostering ignorance

(solo: Dave)
4. Numbing Agents (3:24)
(Music: Davidson)

Possessed and mindless,
completely lacking substance
Worshipping gossip and insipid excess

Consumed by consumption
Devoted to dysfunction
This is what you've become
Vapid, empty

You cannot help yourself,
obsessed with nothing else but blather
Glorified banality,
with no humanity just chatter

Zombified, the bran dead now arise
With desire in their eyes
and nothing on their minds
Can I defy? Or be commercialized
We must sever the ties that bind

What has bred this culture?
Full of distractions
Caring not for significant issues,
only for coming attractions

Programmed by programming
Stupefaction is what they bring
Liquefied brains melting
Cling to nothing

(solo: Dave)

These numbing agents,
spreading their contagion
Infecting our society
We have fallen into a deep narcosis
Enslaved yet thinking we are free
5. Fracked (3:58)
Cracking the earth down to the depths below
Burrowing deeper to where vapors flow
We descend into the unknown

Laying waste to the forests and plains
Now a wasteland is all that remains
Raping mother earth for a profitable gain

Unearthing the crypts, a foul stench spews forth from the deep
The plates start to shift, as open sores from the earth start to weep

Carcinogenic chemicals injected
While metal monoliths are quickly erected
A growing populace becoming more and more dejected

Flowing rivers of life now bring only death
Mephitic pools seep and infect
We continue to destroy at nature’s behest

Smashing through the hardest of stones, thousands of feet below
Dire consequences soon to be shown, unearthing effluvium from long ago
Water so contaminated that it can burst into flames
Poisoning the populace with vaporized remains
6. The Gift You Gave (5:39)
(Music: Davidson)

Emptiness in my bones
The void you left me
Woe is all I know
Shackled to melancholy
Delving deep inside
Scrape away the crust
Revealing what I hide
All that's left is a husk

Replay it over again

Memories affixed in my mind
Your remembrance is a bane
With every stroke of your pen
Authoring my pain

This is what I've become, what you have made
I will curse your name till my final day
Burying love in a frostbitten grave
Undying hatred, the gift you gave

Fractured and fragmented
Forever cold to this world
Ice coursing through my veins
Animosity unfurled
You are the sour taste
that still lingers on my tongue
I will curse your name
till the dying breath that leaves my lungs

(solo: Dave)
7. Invidious (4:34)
(Music: Davidson)

Roll out the bogus talking heads,
tell us all how to think
Bearing the chalice of disinformation,
which we unwittingly drink
Fraudulent opinions with zero integrity
Calculated to foster animosity

Besieged by the media blitzkrieg
Under attack from hyperbole
What we've seen cannot be unseen
Demoralizing our society

I refuse to swallow the pill,
to choke back their swill any longer
Pushing the agendas of the hate mongers
24 hour news cycle, rinse and repeat
Tune in for the latest tragedy of the week

Besieged by the blitzkrieg
Overwhelmed by crisis fatigue
What we've seen cannot be unseen
Visions of catastrophe

Their vile rhetoric is noxious
So nauseating and toxic
Spewing their bile it is sickening to hear
their backwards logic

(solo: Dave)

Worshipping tragedy
profitable calamity
Ratings go through the roof,
stay tuned for hyperbolic insanity
8. Spastic (4:03)
9. Entombed by Wealth (4:15)
(Music: Davidson)

Building up your empire by any means necessary
Your only goal was to aspire
to a selfish life devoid of charity

Never caring for those in need
Accumulation of assets driven by greed
Your health has failed you in your later years
A corpse to be stricken with fear

Your palace is now your tomb,
but no one will mourn at your grave
Entombed by wealth, by greed consumed,
death is the debt you must pay

The shriveled shells of kings
rotting in their crypts
All your wealth you leave behind,
Your legacy doesn't mean shit

Clutching your scepter, adorned with jewels
Here lies the end of a pitiful rule
A decaying corpse cloaked in excess
From avaricious affluence to nothingness

(solo: Dan)

(solo: Dave)
10. A Visitation (5:53)
(Music: Gargiulo)

Faint sounds coming from my window,
is someone there?
Mind playing tricks again
Must be the midnight air

A foreigner in a far away land
Growing ill at ease
Wear from my travels
Succumbing to fatigue

A visitation from the spirit realm
By haunting visions overwhelmed

Dreamscape of a memory
A place so familiar
Is this reality?
Reflections from the mind's mirror

Awakened as the drapery falls
Entangled in the veil
Confused in a cold sweat
Lying naked and pale

Tentacled horrors
burst forth from below the ground
A sinister voice echoes
from the sky with a thunderous sound
The specter hovers above like a black cloud
Casting its shadow, an ominous shroud

(solo: Dave)
