Track Name: Complex Delusions
Swallow the cure
The Pharmaceutical solution
Asphyxiated by the trauma made flesh by my hands
A small escape
Too little too late
In a sterile room the future gestates

Benzodiazepine
Nothing is what it seems
Sever my lifelong dreams
Dissecting all I’ve have seen

Drowning in a sea of chemicals

Calcify my insight vision,
Impotent, Docile, conditioned

Great nepenthe, reason’s noose
Opiate of sorrows ruse

Calcify my insight vision,
Impotent, Docile, conditioned

If I ever wanted to tear myself in two
I always knew that I could count on you
If I ever wanted to use you in defense
I always knew you’d strip away all sense

Complex, Delusional
Erase all the emotional
Thought transgressor
Ovoid seal
There is nothing I want to feel

If I ever wanted to live a normal life,
That’s been discarded.
forgotten
Goodbye.
Track Name: High Anxiety
Labyrinth of complex neuroses
Tapestry of barb wired dreams
Clockwork thoughts lament the midnight hour
Shadows return, advance upon my tower

Icy fingers move across the lips
Fingertips preclude the Judas kiss
Inching closer, elegance of fallen gods
Your breath meets mine, foreclosing all my odds

Enfold around my essence slow
Make me move
Make me speak
Make me know
I’m just too weak

Fill my mouth with the ashes of my song
Pin back the lids of my eyes and show me where I’ve wronged

Why?

It isn’t like our bonds were ever broken
Not like words ever needed to be spoken
No need for games, pretentious masks
All you ever had to do was ask

Whisper words of love into my ears
The siren song unchanged all down the years
Absolute, un equivocated solace lost
Finite days wasted years eternal albatross

Pressure mounts upon my chest
Like smoke
Pulling air from my lungs under heavy duress
Across my back around my waist
My love,
You move with effortless grace

There is no way for me to sever
Addictive, self destructive pleasure
Endless stalemate, locked embrace
Unable to swallow the other’s face
There is no way for me to escape
There is no peace that awaits
Endless stalemate, locked embrace
Unable to swallow the other’s face

Fucked to pieces
Fucked to dust
Coiled in everlasting lust
Toy with me
Placate me
Rearrange my symmetry

God is dead, and I am she
The only one to ever be
Is me.

I’ll be your Satan
I’ll be your Christ
I’ll be your blood drenched suicidal device
You aren’t alone
Caressing hands
You taste my lips on your pineal gland
I’ll be your Satan
I’ll be your Christ
I’ll be your blood drenched suicidal device

You are alone
My devotee
Reflection of all that has ceased to be


There is no time for me to behold
I am the slave and I’ve been sold
Endless Stalemate locked embrace
Waiting my whole life to end this chase
Track Name: Monotheist
Forsaken future
Bitter the taste of the trance
A narcissistic, fucking arrogant faith in the flesh
Assembled effigies
Ascend chromatically
Expanding viscous shapes
Ignites as sorrow, burns as hate

Obsidian is the color of all my thoughts
Deconstructing worlds
Frozen winds unfurled
The metamorphosis has begun
Nothing can be said, nothing can be done

Burn the temples, raze them all
Let the putrid steeple fall
Tetragrammaton design has failed
In this kingdom, sorrow prevails
Graven image, anathema to truth
Impudent wanderings of my youth
Behold the god, so bittersweet
To see him dying at my feet

Monotheist-
I pledged my heart to you
Everything pure
Everything true
A trust to swallow mountains laid to waste
Torn from your arms cast from your grace
I should have known, I know you well
You promise heaven, yet bestow hell


Monochromatic
Messiah schematic
Confusion dogmatic
Your “love” is synthetic
Perception polluted
My senses diluted
My future disputed
So convoluted

Your promises DEAD
Wasted all that I have bled


Monotheist-
I pledged my heart to you
Everything pure
Everything true
A trust to swallow mountains laid to waste
Torn from your arms cast from your grace
I should have known, I know you well
You promise heaven, yet deliver hell

Monotheist-
I lost everything to you
Everything pure
Everything true
A trust to swallow mountains laid to waste
Illusions grand artificial grace
I should have known I know you well
You cast deceit perpetual
Track Name: Zughenruhe
Now
I hear the sound
Arms outstretched and eyes stormbound
Consistent
It beckons me
Growing louder by degrees
Invade my bloodstream
Occupy my every thought
Illuminating everything I’ve ever sought
Ghostly transmission
Creeping through my DNA
Like shadows on the trees
Hurts so bad I feel diseased
Incessant siren deep inside its deafening
The naked scream of tattered wings

Clutch of whispers night to day
Instincts I cannot betray
Winged migration, passion play
Spring forth avian vertebrae
ZUGHENRUHE
The call that will not let me go
Learned all that I need to know
Consumed in rays of indigo

Feel so primitive
Intuition pure and clear
Nothing to forgive
Nothing left to fear

As Prometheus
Bestows his gift of holy flame
Thus
I am
Adorned in feathers I became
A thief to steal a torch from the divine
To dispel the darkness of my mind

Now
I hear the sound
Arms outstretched and eyes stormbound
Consistent
It beckons me
Growing louder by degrees
Invade my bloodstream
Occupy my every thought
Illuminating everything I’ve ever sought
Ghostly transmission
Creeping through my DNA
Like shadows on the trees
Track Name: Fragments
Fragmented, obscured
A culling of words
Into recessed sub consciousness
I’m falling
Primal shift to balance
Caress to talons
Serpentine Dissimulation of the ego boundaries
And here is your perch
On oldest of birch
Cocooned in defense
From words of offense
Owl and lion as one
Engulfed in the sun
Cavalcade of secret treasures
Surpassing all measure
Seems to me lately, words are your test
Gauging my actions and words from the rest
“Nothing stays sacred, no secrets kept”
Concealed intentions with brambles adept
I wonder what horrors befell your past
To make you so distant, so cold and downcast
I offer no struggle, no struggle you give.
No words of harsh judgment
On the life that you live

Fragment perceptions
Weary companion

Like a child I confide:

Is thou the river, or is thou the tide?
Bear the wanting of my future life?
Or a relapse to my former lies?
Holding secret words close to your chest?
Or does no heart beat warm within your breast?
Experimenting in futility?
Or proof of life in mystery?

Fragmented memories scattered and strewn
Come into focus then flee all too soon
All I hold sacred, no secrets I keep
No longings for god or a faith or belief

So lucid my conscience, so clear is my sight
Held onto my essence in the face of this blight
And as the glass shattered, fragments pierced my skin
I did not submit I would not let you win

No one will rule me, or the shards of my mind
Its all I have left but it all still is mine
Jigsaw discernment my memories be
Putting the pieces together for me
From ashes of old the new shall grow strong
Never forgetting this terrible song
Migrate from this wasteland as birds flying south
Remembering always the taste of blood
In
My
Mouth
Track Name: Beyond Hatred
I’ve got hatred in my heart and I can’t let it go
Forever coursing through me, intensity, all that I know
You are the source, you are the architect
With your lies, cold pretense, and the promises you never kept
Hand outstretched for friendship then I learned all the truth
Oppressive, possessive, abusive, selfish youth
Cold talons of reality tear my skin
you are an abomination
Cower in your excrement, writhe in your shame
Mouthful of acid wouldn’t be enough pain
You weep of heartbreak, god I hope that its true
I’ve never met anyone with less value then you
Honor and loyalty are foreign to your mind
You choose yourself, and you’ll leave all else behind
You fucking lowlife, Ill snatch the life out of you

This is what ill do!

And its what you deserve!
It’s what you deserve
Motherfucker
It’s what you deserve

Let your blood flow upon me



Malignant thoughts give purpose to clenched fists
On your knees before me, bound at the wrist
A Malevolent imagination
Bloodthirsty machinations
Dedicated hands on my visceral means
To fill this room with a chorus of your screams
Consuming fire, crimson red
You’ve pushed me beyond hatred

I
Judicator of your flesh
All
your nightmares coalesce
You
Will suffer for your crimes
Die
When I decide its time

Beg for mercy, scream my name
Your eyes plucked out your limbs are maimed
You pushed too far, you wore me thin
Now I relieve you of your skin
Track Name: Through Walls
Outstretched my hand, you pushed away
Into a den of vipers I have strayed
And with the ignorance of a child
Allowed my heart to be beguiled
Reprise a song I’ve sung before
Lamenting possibilities, stillborn
The irony is not lost on me
You Lament the lock while you hold the key
I’ve tasted fear and loneliness
And Self indulgent emptiness
Sardonic mooring to ideals
That bite as wolves upon the heels
This sensation felt is much the same..
Upon yourself you cast all blame
And without judgment, no pitied breath
The scent on you is one of death

I watch the words creep across your skin
Persist in soft exhales
Most delicate of ripening hymns
That move in blossomed trails

Through mirrors pale, through mildewed eyes
My Reflection froze, then multiplied
Engineer of fate, sculptor of distant stars
Prismatic darkness reflects the scars
Beneath the tree
Our hallowed tryst
Enveloped in carnivorous mist
There your bloody lips I kissed
There our agony desists
Catastrophe and entropy
Waves of sorrow move through me
Cold expanse like frozen seas
Brings my heart down to its knees

My love my all

My love, my fall

Moving past the sound of screams
Reverberating through our dreams
Gods and Demons stand blasphemed
Consciousness in force supreme

Enduring caress of my ages past:
Another life where we could make this last
Through walls, even as we are slipping away
No matter where you go, this is where I’ll stay

I watch the tears creeping down your face
Crystalline adorned
Covenant of blood is all I taste
As our senses turned to thorns

No conclusions,
no beginnings after all
Infinity reflected through mirrors
And through walls
