Track Name: Monastery
This is the day I testify. Dead son and wife laid crossways on each other. Here comes the witch's curse sitting in a saddle. Monastery. I need to testify in this moment sometimes I'm too tired of living in a nightmare. A starving dog without it's master. I want to believe! Divine right to purify. I hear them say: "Worse than a hangman." Gods will is in my hands. I've build the city around the bell. Dogs dressed in black,hear my calling to the cliff! Snap at their heels! Sweep them away! The beat of our prayer breaks the marble apart. Kneel down at the blessed eminence and worship! Whenever daylight sees our horde approaching it humbly retreats to the horizon. Like a serpent shuts its eye slowly stormclouds and my reign embraces the sun.
Track Name: Killing Fields
The first brother’s almanac drains every peaceful hill into our killing fields. Descending spade into the hand of the one who lives by alms. Just people must eliminate the invisible monarch. It’s the end where the whole world’s darkness is gathered. Year zero is coming. To keep you all has no benefits, letting you rot is no loss. The king is an animal not a human. Upside down forever. Head bashed to the trunk. Heads bashed. Saved bullet. It possesed me and no one has ever questioned me. It posseses total control. I am an animal. I am not a human.
Track Name: The Hyena
We are repressed. Smudged with all of the dead tribes's blood. We stand in the way. A lawless swarm's unheard history. Our leader makes his own definitions. Who is a mass murderer? Blood vessel's rain. Shot in the face thrown into the water. Turned upside down forevermore. World, come see the end of a kingdom! Rivers choked with corpses. The wrong father is the chosen one. Swaying between worlds, waving at death. Souls follow him to the cold whirl of his fury. Crowned crane with the gift of an ungodly creation. World come and see me.
Track Name: Damnatio Memoriae
Adore me! Hail me! Deify me! Only me! Damnatio memoraea. My castrated Empress, freemans and cults! A stab in the womb that gave life to a killer in the golden house where Gods are not allowed only me. Our dark plan striked like thunder. The taste of a sectarian is consuming my mortality. Torches of believers blinding the night. My silk robe is mired in the dust of peace. I'll sweep it off with tears. I am the woman and she is the man. I am a man as she is woman too. Eyes on my hand. Equal with Gods. Bring me the lions, the head of my love! Brand the traitors! I sing with throat cut. Embrace me mother! Silver trust gone. Inflame the stakes! The slave of my beauty is the Colossus in me. Erased destruction.
