02. The Sinister Supremacy

Music by Christofer Malmström, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory
Violence is all I can see
When I close my eyes it takes control over me
The nightmare has me confined
The only relief is to succumb to my mind

There must be a purpose of this hell
This covert assailant that guides me I cannot repel

I feed on your fear
As you see the end coming near
And all senses disappear

Murder is all that I crave
Feeling no remorse for those I sent to the grave
My bloodlust will be your demise
This power compels me to bring death in disguise

I am enslaved by this mastery
No way to control this malevolent conspiracy

I feed on your fear
As you see the end coming near
And all senses disappear
You'll be set free

This monstrosity
The sinister supremacy
Will it be my legacy?

In blood red ecstasy
Devoured by lunacy
This malicious demonocracy
Death resides in me

Vengeance is what I seek
I am the aggressor now and you are the weak
Relentless sealer of fates
This pitch-black misery is all that awaits

There must be a purpose of this hell
This covert assailant that guides me I cannot repel

I feed on your fear
As you see the end coming near
And all senses disappear
You'll be set free

This monstrosity
The sinister supremacy
Will it be my legacy?

Will it be my legacy?


03. Mechanically Divine

Limbs failing to comply with impulses from my brain
Physical limitations are proven too great to be accepted
Structural failure, a product of poor carnal design
Unsatisfactory bodily architecture

A severance of carnal bond
Mechanically divine

When the act transcends human bounds
I can always accept the pain

Forced to live in this pod of moldering flesh
Left to die in this shell in which we are born
Redefining the concept of mankind
Perpetual

Corporal deconstruction
Mechanical fabrication

A need to improve on this frail human pattern
Researching ways to amend the flaws of creation
Ameliorate this weak, substandard anatomy
Reinforce the frame and substitute piece by piece

I will surpass both flesh and blood
Bionically supreme

When the act transcends human bounds
I can always accept the pain

Forced to live in this pod of moldering flesh
Left to die in this shell in which we are born
I'm becoming mechanically divine
Perpetual


04. Ostracized

Music by Klas Ideberg, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory
A brush with death and it's painfully clear
Who am I and what I'm doing here?
I've sacrificed and bled my heart out but for what?
What is it really worth?

Contemplating whether to leave this earth
The hours passing by but time stands still
Scourged there is no longer comfort in mindless violent acts

The hours pass but time stands still

Hate and rage fills the void
Banished from life
Pain and fear haunts the soul
Ostracized

I conquered all that I possibly could
I summoned all the strength I could find
If there's a place for those depraved
By all means send me on my way

An eternity of kindness and grace
Will never be enough to save my soul
Bound to an existence in agony for all eternity

It's not enough to save my soul

Hate and rage fills the void
Banished from life
Pain and fear haunts the soul
Ostracized

But there is no place in this world
For this depraved and decadent monument of humanity

Scourged
This is no way to live
Is it enough to die for?
The sands of time are sinking further
Bound by this burden of life
Death, the final endowment
We're all born just to die

The sands of time are sinking further
We're all just born to die


05. The Decline

Music by Klas Ideberg, Lawrence Mackrory, Christofer Malmström
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory
Here we stand with all hope gone
Tainted by the death we've seen
Pushing onward on barren land
Feeding on the will to live

Left with all the pain,
The fear and denial
With open arms we fall

When the shadows descend on our souls
And the end is so near
When the smell of defeat is in the air
We embrace our fate

With no life left to give
We survive into defeat

Despair, dispirited
Bereaved and without hope
Frantic, ravenous
At the end of my rope

We succumb to the dark
Where all life goes to cease

When the shadows descend on our souls
And the end is so near
When the smell of defeat is in the air
We embrace our fate

When the darkness devours our minds
The solution's so clear
And we all stand aside
To watch it die
When it all fades away


06. Insurrection Is Imminent

Music by Christofer Malmström, Peter Wildoer, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory
I wage a war against society
My tired eyes have finally seen enough
We once stood united sworn to uphold
The structures set forth
Witness the collapse
The inevitable end to our way of life
The oncoming darkness
Has emerged to swallow us whole

Under control
We will govern your worthless soul
Stand in line and wait your order
Under control
There's no other to save your soul
Controlled by fear

Retaliate this virulent regime
Initiate the protocol
Take it back and let this surge or rage endure
Break the silence
Insurrection is imminent

The harder you fall the higher you bounce
We have strength in numbers
Our voices cannot be suppressed
Denounce possession
We all own the ground that we walk
When the dust settles
And all the blood's been washed away
Ascendancy will be obsolete
It cannot wait

I stand my ground against society
My battered fists have finally strengthened
We fight united to overthrow this despotism
Behold the arise
The few have spoken
We've awoken
The uprising has begun
Stand up and be counted

Retaliate this virulent regime
Initiate the protocol
Take it back and let this surge or rage endure
Break the silence
Insurrection is imminent


07. In The Absence Of Pain

Music by Christofer Malmström, Peter Wildoer, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory, Christofer Malmström
Filtered through the nervous system
Your body does not respond
Failing neural connections
Communications with the outside world

Living in the absence of pain
Never feeling a thing
No way to sense injuries sustained
Trapped within this shell
Shattered mind, soul in vain
A future so bleak
Broken bones, lethal wounds
Senses docile and meek

Waiting for sensations to appear
How long can the body persevere
One by one, functions letting go
What it feels like to die
I will never know

Never felt what others take for granted
Nothing signals what's wrong
Brutally harming your body
The severity will never be known

Living in the absence of pain
Never feeling a thing
No way to sense injuries sustained
Trapped within this shell
Shattered mind, soul in vain
A future so bleak
Broken bones, lethal wounds
Senses docile and meek

In the absence of pain
Living life in vain
Sensations bound to be restrained

Waiting for sensations to appear
How long can the body persevere
One by one, functions letting go
What it feels like to die
I will never know


08. Humanity Defined

Music by Lawrence Mackrory, Christofer Malmström
Lyrics by Christofer Malmström
Blinding your vision, reality shut off
I control what has always been mine
Self-contained and contradictory
Unaware of when I'm crossing the line

The world begins and ends with me
I'm the center of what's known
Prevent the ability to see
Trapped in manipulation zone
Creating chaos and disorder in your mind
I have no interest in what's your destiny
See me complete and divine

Logic discarded, reasoning fails
No interest if you want to run or stay
I'll make you believe that you have a choice
As long as we do it my own way

The world begins and ends with me
I'm the center of what's known
Prevent the ability to see
Trapped in manipulation zone
Creating chaos and disorder in your mind
I have no interest in what's your destiny
See me complete and divine

Blocking your vision
Turning blind
The universe is in me
I'm humanity defined

Deny the truth, the evil within
All too late, you'll be aware of the signs
Knowing your guilt while I'm free from sin
Unaware of when I've crossed the line

The world begins and ends with me
I'm the center of what's known
Prevent the ability to see
Trapped in manipulation zone
Creating chaos and disorder in your mind
I have no interest in what's your destiny
See me complete and divine

Blocking your vision
Turning blind
The universe is in me
I'm humanity defined


10. Collapse Of Illusions

Music by Klas Ideberg, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Peter Wildoer
A dark, bottomless well of grief
Travelling into the heart of sorrow
There is nothing more to see within
Only horrors interlaced in patterns of pain
Feed the ghost with depravity
Reach the final decadence
An intense stretch of awareness
The panic enfolds the present

The demons from deep within
Seducing the soul into sin
Searching for lost conclusions
The collapse of illusions

Concealing the infinite expanse of unbounded intellect
The agitation discomposes the inside
Shattering the individual boundaries
The self profoundly altered
Transformed into contingency
The dissolution of true belief
Redefining reality

The demons from deep within
Seducing the soul into sin
Searching for lost conclusions
The collapse of illusions

Obscuring impurity
Illuminate deception

The demons from deep within
Seducing the soul into sin
Searching for lost conclusions
The collapse of illusions


11. By Darkness Designed

Music by Klas Ideberg, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory
I treat the world as I know it to be
Morally dead and decadent
I conquer life as I see fit
Unparalleled

I have defied every rule of man
Just to be the anomaly
A sadistic abomination
Incomparable

I will not go down
I will never wear your crown
Will not conform to your ways
In this heart malign
There's a darkness so divine
I'm on the shore as you drown

See me coming alive
This is the era in which I will thrive

I stand aside and enjoy the collapse
Drive a wedge in the crack
I have transcended life and death
To reign in chaos

In this heart malign
There's a darkness so divine
I'm on the shore as you drown

See me coming alive
This is the era in which I will thrive
Detached from this theater of the confined
Grand, superior, by darkness designed

Born from a malignant strain
Designed to inflict pain
In chaos I reign

I will not go down
I will never wear your crown
Will not conform to your ways
In this heart malign
There's a darkness so divine
I'm on the shore as you drown

See me coming alive
This is the era in which I will thrive
Detached from this theater of the confined
Grand, superior, by darkness designed


12. Existence Is Just A State Of Mind

Music by Klas Ideberg, Lawrence Mackrory
Lyrics by Lawrence Mackrory
Lost and forgotten
Emotions collide in
Empty battlefields
Denounced and rejected
Slowly fading away and into nothingness

Suddenly a sense reminds us
There's nothing to take for granted
It surrounds us all
In a second all might fall
Existence is just a state of mind

Down and discarded
The lies construct a new reality
Complete isolation
Only self-abducting joy that might have been

Suddenly a sense reminds us
There's nothing to take for granted
It surrounds us all
In a second all might fall
Existence is just a state of mind

Rise up, reinstate
Stage your own escape
Dismantle asperity
Design your destiny

Suddenly a sense reminds us
There's nothing to take for granted
It surrounds us all
In a second all might fall
Existence is just a state of mind

Suddenly the void collapses
Washed away like time forgotten
It surrounds us all
In a second all might fall
Existence is just a state of mind
