01. Goetia

Music & lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
Satan, savior, father
Lord, constructor of my world
Master, destroyer, redeemer
Guide me, I am the open wound

Under a frozen sun
Under a burning moon
All shall be revealed
Under the morning star

Lord, have mercy upon me
Guilt has ravaged this my flesh
Lord, have mercy upon me
Thine shall be this mortal soul

Son, Messiah, deceiver
Pale, like bloodless human veins
Sickness, darkness, decay
Mankind shall drown in its delusions

Bearer of light, thou haveth fallen from heaven
Evoke thy servants and release their eternal spell
My heart is black, my heart is dead
Spirits enter into me, let me ascend

Lie upon lie mankind shall die


02. Abyss Within My Soul

Music & lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
The dead are never gone
I can feel them all around me
I am drowning in an ocean
How I wish that you would join them

I am burning
I seek revenge
My eyes are blind
My rage is chaste

Rise
Abyss within my soul

The dead are never gone
I can always hear the voices
These dark waters will consume me
And the sun shall never rise

Every nail piercing my flesh
Manifests your helplessness
Die you shall

I am Lazarus
Arisen from my tomb
My limbs are trembling
My hands are bleeding
The day of demise

Rise
Abyss within my soul


03. In Shrouds Decayed

Music by V. Santura
Lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
I am your shrine
I am your womb
You rest inside of me, my flesh shall be your tomb
Your words decayed
To foulest rain
A shroud of mildewed lies enwrapping your remains
Your body draped
Next to mine
Exposed to all unless they've chosen to be blind

You caused my sweat
To drop as blood
Soiling this meager ground of desecrated mud
Your mind depraved
You've crucified yourself upon my barren grave
My fingers tenderly
Caress your face
I shall preserve my hatred until the end of days

I've conceived you
I've destroyed you
You were stillborn
Inside of me


04. Shrine

Music by Tom Gabriel Warrior
[Instrumental]


05. A Thousand Lies

Music & lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
Son of none
Risen from dust
To carve my cross
The altar of sacrifice

Son of none
Spreader of lies
Thy will be done
As you die

Everything you touch
Every word you speak
Every lies you shape
Every seed you sow
Dies

Son of none
Soiled with my blood
Serpent below the cross
Still you fail

Son of none
The blackened sun
Self-appointed god
Cult of one

Blessed those
Who do believe
Those who will
Die in you

A raging flood
Of deceiving words
A tainted world
Of livid shame


06. Descendant

Music by V. Santura
Lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
The days when I was young
The days when I will die
Autumn leaves lie on the ground
To wither so much like me

Unto thee
Shall all flesh come
Grant me eternal rest

Seven, seven they are
No gate will shut them out
Like snakes through grass they glide
Like wind, like wind they storm

Fall has swept the fields
The woods will come alive
Heaven and earth converge
And the stars will disappear


07. Myopic Empire

Music by Tom Gabriel Warrior, Erol Unala, Andrea Gadient
Lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
Diseased, the inner sanctum dies
Rhapsodized, before your sightless eyes
Demise, tartarus in disguise
Your words, all but stigmatized

Like a body without soul
And a sacrifice of faith
The desire to be flesh
Yet forced to abdicate

Pain
Myopic empire

Shelter to a venal mind
Subsistence within your own decline
You betrayed me to my face
Though professing to seek the truth
Nowhere near a fleshless decay
You relinquished purity of youth

And in all incessant bitterness
A lack of comprehension
Intoxicated by my suffering
Thou shall suffer, too


08. My Pain

Music & lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
Fall asleep in my arms
Never to wake up ever again

Morning comes as a surprise
To the solitary heart
This world within my mind
Did it ever even exist?
I wish my touch could mend your bleeding wounds
And mark my existence in your time
I fight the impending lure of belated sleep
For fear of waking up and you are gone


09. The Prolonging

Music & lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
As you descend, I shall rise
Your demise shall be my conception
Your failure shall be my triumph
I shall feed from your decay

Your despair shall give me strength
As you degenerate, I shall prosper
Your misfortune shall make me jubilant
As you suffocate, I shall breathe

Repressed, your own mortality
Drunk of pitiful delusion
I shall be your parasite
Born from your imbecility

I shall tie your mortal limbs
I shall invade your thoughts
I shall belittle your aspiration

I shall obliterate your hope
I shall break your will
I shall devour your flesh

As you perish, I shall live
You shall drown in my contempt

Drained of life and all emotion
I shall be your eternal foe
I shall expose for ridicule
Your designs for your salvation

Liar!

I shall feast on your misfortune
I shall remember all your lies
Truth has never been of essence
As you devised your fallacies

Liar!

As you deteriorate
I shall create my kingdom
As you sink into waves of darkness
I shall find my brightest light

As you perish, I shall live


10. Shatter

Music & lyrics by Tom Gabriel Warrior
I don't want to feel
I don't want to see
I don't want to love
I don't want to live

I don't wish to drown in the beauty of your eyes
I don't wish to remember the warmth of your embrace
I don't wish to bleed on your altar of demise
I don't wish to wither among the petals of disgrace

Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
My love a sacrifice in your temple of disdain
Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?

Evil ot tnaw i
Evol ot tnaw i
Ees ot tnaw i
Leef ot tnaw i

To feel is suffering
To feel is rejection
To feel is despair
To feel is to die

The air liquefies as it enters my shattered lungs
Darkness enwraps my mind as blood stains your skin
My heart pierced by thorns of words that now seem wrong
I yield to the darkness of the agony deep within

Evil ot tnaw i
Evol ot tnaw i
Ees ot tnaw i
Leef ot tnaw i

Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
My love a sacrifice in your temple of disdain
Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?

Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
My love a sacrifice in your temple of disdain
Why did you cast me into a bottomless pit of pain?
