Track Name: Metastasis
A divination
of excess and intent
at the apex of this madness...
at our demise

I fall asleep
to the hum of misfiring cells
awoken by the taste of dirt
I fall asleep under the loesses of wasted time
relinquished, relinquished

This civilization kept alive by strange machines
spreading plague to the atmosphere

Saprophytic reign
(no monuments)
even fables etched in stone
(atomized, decomposed)
eroded carapace
divulged souls
contrite whispers can't be heard
(In languages no longer known)

The winds speak of only plagues
the roots of poisoned soil
a sea spent from drought
the earth filled with dread and doubt

Death imposed
lost in a tide of ash
we choke alone
beneath our leaden sky
death imposed
we damned ourselves
we return our skin
return our bones
Track Name: Anomalous Transmission
N/A
Track Name: Eden Devoured
An earth
filled and subdued
lifeless sea
empty sky
Eden devoured
by billions of choking apes
a dominion of blight
left in the footsteps of christ

We were left lost, scared
and dispossessed
tumbling, erratic, and ghostlike
guilty and directionless

Eons of artifice
a hemorrhage collapse
thy will be damned
on earth as it is in heaven

And so we reel in defeat
(thy will be damned)
kneel down
forsaken, exhausted, and bereaved.
(thy will...)

The body of christ
crushed underneath the weight
(I forfeit nothing to your feeble god)
sung in a language older than words
the great temple reclaimed
(I forfeit nothing to your god)

Sigh of oppressed creatures
heart of a heartless world

I forfeit nothing (to your feeble god)
I forfeit nothing
