Track Name: Dawn of Man's Demise
The gauntlet crushed as time slips away
The hidden magic, now opaque!
The specter of man, within sight
Disposable life forms from left to right

The celestial gift, an areal sight
Genetic mutations, the ultimate fight
Through plagued terrain, physicality fails
A sprint to glory at the pace of snails

Not over yet
Blood stained remains
Shield yourself!
I shield my eyes
Extract the fear
With my pride
Die with honor
In a world of shit?

Pained expressions on the face of men
As they stumble closer to the end
The nations fall systematically
Pools of blood far as the eye can see

The final chapter makes no sense
Reprisal from the other plains of existence
Winds of infection strike our frailty
Bursts to the edge of humanity

Bodies steeped
The burden kills
The dawn of man
The prophecy
An act of defiance
And never again
The fall of man
The scroll is complete!
Track Name: La Madre del Vicio
Desde el cielo
Mira como vendrá
Vestido en blanco
Te hablará
Cosas dulces
Desde su lengua caerá
Y de volada
La seguirás

cuidado

Saluda
Abrázala
La Madre
del vicio

Desde el infierno
Sus ganchos te jalarán
Desde su pecho
Su leche tomarás
Entre sus piernas
Sus delicias te encantarán
y de repente
Te mortificarás

Lárguense

Saluda
A la puta
La Madre
del vicio

Aléjense
Track Name: Airlock 27
Day one
Enter the red planet
Such a marvel to be where no one else has been
Circle and land
Taking samples of soil and sand
Back to the ship
Back to the lab

Frozen, microscopic machines
Whoops, I spilled some on the floor
My apologies

Day two
Woke up to the worst nightmare
The walls are littered with the limbs of my crew members
Is this a practical joke?
Cuz if it isn't, I think we just failed the mission
Don't wanna die like they did
Is this the end?

Is this the end for me?
Suicide is plan B

What was the cause that killed my crew?
And now it's after me
I'm trapped in airlock 27
Track Name: Battle of Dessau Bridge
The war wages on in a hellbent wasteland
Surrounded by despair with no escape plan

The thunderous pummeling, their weapons of will
Is it fighting or posturing, whose guts will spill?

The herd moves on to the beat of thunder
They enter the village to rape and plunder
The armies all clash in a glorious scene
The return product: man and machine

Push back the frontier! Kill everyone in sight!

The fighting begins, artillery acquired
Hands in the air, towards angelic choirs
Who sing "hell on earth, consumed by fire."

A screaming bullet zips past my head
Fifty spider grenades latch to my friends

The thunderous pummeling, their weapons of will
Is it fighting or posturing, whose guts will spill?

The herd moves on to the beat of thunder
They enter the village to rape and plunder
The armies all clash in a glorious scene
The return product: man and machine

Push back the frontier! Kill everyone in sight!

The fighting expands with burning desire
Smoke in the sky, yet the sun burns brighter
Hell on earth, consumed by fire
Track Name: H.E.S.
Microchip enhancements
Make me think faster
Connection online
All done with thought

Come together with synergy
Something with more abilities
Soldered right into the head
Access to latest GPS

Check out the newest thing
A mobile device implant in your brain
I've got to have one!
Black Friday, with a scalpel

Three worded binding
Hackers are inside me
Dirty works, acts of violence
Hack, Erase, until you're mindless

It's a new kind of criminal
Influence. Losing limb control
Erase, find and process meat

Loot banks and stores
Your body, a vessel in a corpse
Assassinate; mission complete
Self-destruct before they're on to me

Hack, erase, self-destruct

Self-destruct
Track Name: The Masks They Wear
Strikes her right before my eyes
His face distorted like in a disguise
I watch as he kills her, I watch as she dies

A front row seat to bloody lacerations
A 101 in violent fascination

She hits the floor, I know she's dead
Then the man, slams her head
Why did he kill her, why do we die?

Blood soaked childhood manifestations
Her body's ripe for maggot infestation

(Beware)
The secret place
(Shattered)
What is to become of me?
(Shattered)
I can't sleep, it's all I dream

In my mind, she's in pain
As I'm baptized in the midnight rain
Through filthy glass, my eyes strain
Childhood ends in the midnight rain
On her face, a crimson stain
As I'm baptized in the midnight rain
Her death is etched upon my brain
Childhood ends in the midnight rain

The floor is filthy where she lay
The man is guilty as he walks away
What did she do to make him act this way?

A binge of visual stimulation
The beast within sends an invitation

I turn to leave as midnight arrives
I'll never forget the look in her eyes
Instinctively, I wave goodbye

Ended by sinister motivations
A life devoid of blood circulation

(beware)
The secret place
(shattered)
Washed away
(beware)
What is to become of me?
(shattered)
I can't sleep, it's all I dream

I remember when she was slain
Watched it happen in the midnight rain
Echos of her shrieks drive me insane
She dies everytime in the midnight rain
The path to home, an endless chain
Watched it happen in the midnight rain
Her bludgeoned body shall forever remain
She dies every time in the midnight rain

She dies every time in the midnight rain
Track Name: Parasitic Host
I see right through you
You've done this to so many before
How many lives have you ruined
Biting off what you cannot afford?

One day this will come back to haunt you
Someone will come back to exterminate your existence
In hindsight, do you see what you've done?
Of course you don't, when you're killing tenfold
Track Name: The Stock Market Crash of 2050
Looking up at the S&P, pray you'll come down and save me

Like a dove emerged from fire, feathers charred yet flying high

O, winged creature with the halo, reveal me thy portfolio

Possessed by monetary lust, the ticker points to where it must

Demons of Wall Street stole my daily bread, gotta deal with this buzzing in my head

Oblivion calling
The sky is Falling
A plan in drawing
My stock is falling

A piece of my soul got devoured, stock explosion, see lonely hearts scoured

No peace, monstrous soul emerges, locked in sync with devious urges

Ashes of notes like manna from above, received by sunken hearts yet devoid of love

Tonight, will rid the world of greed; severed heads litter the streets

Body of Goddess put together in collage, came to suck her breast, but it was only a mirage

Oblivion calling
The sky is falling
A plan in drawing
My stock is falling
Track Name: The Ruinous Paradox of Human Existence
The chain of events
To wipe out existence
From the man with the plan obsessed with eradication

Blot out conscience
With contradictions
From the heart he spouts annihilation

De-evolutionary
Existential massacre
Rug pulled out
Defenses down

Ripple effect
A violent descent
Future fleeting
Bloodthirst overwhelms

The will to live
Poisoned the well

From the skies...

One last appeal
No one to hear
Drink the Kool-aid and revel as death appears

We cried out in lust
It came for us
Myriads of angels now reclaim nothingness

Man's final pose
Defleshed
The temple burns
Sense of finality is real

Existence
Now antiquity
Final result?
The war was lost

He hides the remains
Encounters with ghosts

Of space and time
Track Name: Dragged Under
Perpetual broken machine
He got caught in the blades again
He's too close for me to pull him back in
He's gonna bring me down

I had a dream that you died
Long before you got too close to the edge
Now you're laying half awake
And half dead

So much frailty
Falling for the same trap
Against the grain
The itch is back

Spreading contagious plague
Repetition, kill the pain
There's no escape, the world's to blame
There is no other way

So sick, so dirty
This cycles, just cycles and cycles
A vice of slavery
Dragged under
