01. Let The Devil In

All you love - destroy
All you feel - deny
All you build - corrode
All your peers - divide

Submit to self
Submit to will
Submit to madness!
Submit to flames

My words are dead in my mouth
carbon ash (in my mouth)

Dismember, disfigure!
Dehumanise to ash!
To suffer, like your lord!
To know his wails!
A lamb to the slaughter!
Let the devil in!
Let the devil in!

LET HIM IN!

To burn and crucify
the holy son of man!
Break his body on the cross
Let the devil in!
Let the devil in!
Let the devil in!
Let the devil in!

LET HIM IN!

Breath, breath deep
Carve out your eyes
Become and embody
Become as form
Become at one - with him

Just breath...

02. Bitter Tears And Grave Dirt

Crippling terror of being
Nothing behind my eyes
Fragmented - Ossified
I wish I was blind
The void in my chest
Sings into my soul
I am but nothing...
But bitter tears and grave dirt....

Those in the half light
With weary, broken dreams
Hollow - Ossified
I wish I had died...
This palid, old decay
Succumb to its throes
I am naught but...
Bitter tears and grave dirt....

I AM NOTHING BUT BITTER TEARS AND GRAVE DIRT!

I walk the cobbled streets
with pockets of grave dirt....

Fall to me
I will hold you
In the shards of broken glass

We are venal and craven
There is nothing left to save
Words as empty as our lives
Time enough in the grave
We are nothing.
We beget - nothing!
We are naught but...
Bitter tears and grave dirt

We are venal and craven
There is nothing left to save
Words as empty as our lives
Time enough in the grave

03. Face Down In The Blood And Piss

Look at us!
We are worthy of nothing
Razors cross our palms
Traintracks stretch...
As my veins in the noose

Face down in the blood and piss
what it is to exist

Wounds gaping wide
We bleed into the sand
Razors across our lives
Razors across our lives!

With sunkens in marrionettes
We are caked in our filth
From root to tip
We rot on the vine
We dishonour our lives
Razors across our lives

We dishonour our lives
Razors across our lives

the flicker of the flame
Nothing more to blame
Face down in the blood and piss
Nothing left than this...

You and I, bound to the stone
Dragging each other in
Dragging each other down
The flames and the waves cover and envelope us
As a coal-fired embrace...
You and I...
You and I...
You and I...
You and I...

You and I...

YOU AND I.YOU AND I.
YOU AND I.YOU AND I.
YOU AND I.YOU AND I.
YOU AND I.YOU AND I.

Embittered, embrittled
Emitted, belittled
My days counted in blood
My hands coarse and black
Face down in the blood and piss

The doors are bolted!

04. Know There Is Art In Death

I am the hammer of flesh
I am the anvil of death
I am Leviathan risen
Know there is art in death

I am the pillar of mercy
I am the pillar of severity
I am the world serpent
Know there is art in death

Spiral fractured bone
Coned out flesh and fat
Atomised arterial blood
Know there is art in death

Vaporised and skeletal
Monuments so exquisite
Forests of crucifixions
Know there is art in death

Hammers upon faces
Boots upon skulls
Crematoria run night and day
Know there is art in death

The sludge of purefaction
The scent of squalid death
The bloated vessels of memories fading
Know there is art in death

Fading! in Death!

The sludge of purefaction!
The scent of squalid death!
The bloated vessels of life
Know there is art in death

Mitred earth under blistered feet
My shins splinter through the deadened meat
Wild dogs in the distance - the sun has set twice
The world is dessicated, molded and rotting
We are bound and fettered to the iron of the Earth
We are nailed to the twisted tree
and the vines are growing in our veins!
The cold, crushing irony is that we exist!
Thrust jarringly upon the carcass
Yet we cling to what was foisted upon us
- jealously this yoke...
We bleed into the bowels - that drown our children!
We bleed from our empty veins!
Our hands in spasm, throttling our children that remain!

We bleed into the bowels...
We bleed from our empty veins...

We bleed into the bowels...
We bleed from our empty veins...


We bleed into the bowels...
We bleed from our empty veins...
