Track Name: Thorns ov Devotion (black svn)
Mouth full of lies
Preaching the word of love
Among the strongest
Weakness being your crown
Divine illusion
Has come to an end
I owe you nothing
We’ve torn separate ways

You are also guilty
Being part of the lust,
being part of the filth
Hypocritical subterfuge
Holding you down
One more lie
From your sins you can’t hide.

Free myself
From the curse of your nights
Path of the righteous,
For most the unknown.
Track Name: Self Worship Monolith (black grovnd)
As if reflecting in the mirrors
Wouldn’t be enough
Pupil dilate on self obsessed love
Projecting adoration over no one
Confidence has a price
Affordable with likes and kind lines

Archetype of confidence
Self-esteem left no trace
In this modern age
Of vanity and emptiness
Fill the silence with no sound
Fill the void, fake a smile.
Track Name: Segregate (black stone)
Stench of ignorance
Floods the air I breathe
With a vile excuse
That they don’t feel

Am I an extremist?
This is the legacy they left
I inherit the pollution…
Of the culture they created

This the cancer to eradicate
My answer wont be kind
And we wont tolerate
The unjust and unfair

To every innocent their freedom
To the guilty, infinite pain
To the slave, freedom
To the captor, punishment

Would you ever deny
What happened in the world war
Then you shouldn’t look away
The pain you inflict onto them

Corpses hanging head down
this carnage, I refuse to be part
Morbid smile, sharps the knife
Enough to quench this bloodbath.
Track Name: La Peste Negra (black tree)
Circles tend to close
No matter what side
Each loop turns
Twitch the meaning
Black tongues

Futile and vain
All has been said
Track Name: Two Legged Damnation (black river)
Tamed tribe
Cursed society
In order to persuade
The behavior of this breed
Despise the nouns
Of the so called morality
Despise the values
Of the imposed life we live

Dogmatic declarations
Leaders flag your needs
Meeting demands
And forced fed lies
From dawn to dusk
Throughout 12 months
Serving the master
On a slavery pact

Developed complex
Of unhappiness
Tools for recreation
Loss of concerns
Nothing to say
As nothing to be
Quiet and tied
Shall set us free.
Track Name: Grieved Mankind (black clovds)
Deprived from our creation
Regression to our demise
The march of human beings
Machines replace mankind

Destined to ruin
All what we touch
Barcode marked for a lifetime
Ready for the grand finale

Dark clouds approaching in the sky
Walk towards the cliff that await
Upcoming generations….

A hideous landscape
Where grief rules above everyone
As long as we exist
This hecatomb won’t stop

One more victim
Of the hand that feeds me
The one you tried to bite
Try no longer son, this is a lost war.
