Track Name: Century of Lies
Humiliate yourself, on your knees again
Purify the essence of the deity... experience
The rush of divinity... chemical spirituality...
Removes the existential pain of mortality

My god, my god!!!
Bestow upon me the blessed Eucharist
My arms extend!!!
Waiting for the pain of holy penetration

On your knees again... offering your flesh
Theology of personal destruction
Respect upon the alter of denial
You serve the god of hypocrisy
The lord of all earthly desires

Stigmata my blood!!!
Flowing from the self inflicted wounds of penitence
Praying at the feet of the boy god that I serve!!!
Praying at the feet of the boy god

Burn your God!
Piously inject your sins!
Religion of decadence

On your knees again... offering yourself
Slowly erode into subservience
Manipulated by the ultimate deceiver
Justify the acts of depravity
Committed in the name of God

Stigmata my blood!!!
Flowing from the self inflicted wounds of penitence
Praying at the feet of the boy god that I serve!!!
Praying at the feet of the boy god

Burn your God!
Piously inject your sins!
Religion of decadence
Burn your God! Burn your God!
Track Name: Unspeakable Terror
Predisposed to victimization and overt aggression driven by compulsive
Antisocial domination functionally
Narcissistic predatory mind hate and lust
Inseparably fused across his cognitive
Framework the victim's last offense was
What she represents... to him

Struck from behind... brutally subdued
Organized offense... abducted from the scene
Your sadistic god... stares you face to face
His grip upon your throat... is strengthened by your screams
Sadistic show... of his control
She's terrorized... smell her fear
Steel on flesh... draw the blade
Agony... tortured screams

Disregard... for human life
To validate... his own disgust
She must die... to justify
Pain he's endured... she must die
Dehumanized... objectifies his rage feel
His power surge... as consciousness slips away sweet oblivion
... Falling short of death
Abhorrent consciousness... why won't he let you die?

Suddenly you realize the time has come for you to die!
Mercifully you realize that he will finally let you die!
Track Name: Psychological Autopsy
Voices within... haunting viciously cowering
Behind... a mask of sanity
Lucidity recedes... decompensating
Unwillingly... enter this domain
In the netherworld between delusions and
Reality unusual digressive functioning...
Bizarre perceptual inconsistency
Psychotically detached, cognitively unaware
Catatonic stare, life like lifelessness

Cannibalized... neuronal assault dendritic
Span... presynaptic cleft psychoactive
Charge... dopamine release transitory
Gate... chemical uptake
Fear... despair... rage... denial visions... voices...
Lies... hell scream... curse... summon... pray cries...
Pain... horror... disgust

Diathesis... predisposition genetically
Prescribed... cerebral deficit
Destroyed ability... to formulate intent unable
To perceive... a consequence to act
Track Name: Demonic Embrace
Manipulated by unconscious rage... my demons!
Hate is the whole of my existence
Repulsed by the weakness I see
Driven to violence by the force of... the demons lurking within me
Walls around my defenses... are distorting all I perceive
A slave to my psychic demons, I bend to their blackened desires
I feel so defenseless
Unable to stop my descent, deeper into the darkness of damaged emotional schemes
Blinded by the colluded enmeshment of darkness and light
I long for the chill of the darkness and damn the existence of light

Stagnant in this existence, I am an agent of hell
Unaware of my need to wallow in degradation
Blinded by the colluded enmeshment of darkness and light
I long for the chill of the darkness and damn the existence of light

Lost in a haze of denial... exacting revenge on the world
Self-inflected aggression... meant to destroy what I feel
Claw in vain for the fragments... of my blessed ignorance
Frightened by the awareness of my reality

Manipulative!
... Exploitive!

I feel so defenseless to rage against my demons
Empower by the desire to free my eternal soul
Thriving on the death of sadistic domination
I crushed your reign with unmatched brutality
Piss on you motherfucker!
Begging at my feet
Fuck you, you're nothing
I've finally broken free
Track Name: Mensa Rea (With Evil Intent)
You raised my generation to hate
Force fed me violence rape and deceit
Human abomination of will
Unchecked by super egotistic restraint of the mind

Hatred, vicious destruction of life,
Hardened by anger clouded by lust
Lash out to make you pay for my pain

Internal turmoil, my life and your death
Lucid decision, with moral consent
Callous expression of a frustrated soul
With lack of empathetic concern for victims
I have violated and lives I've destroyed

Hatred, vicious destruction of life,
Hardened by anger clouded by lust
Lash out, you'll fucking pay for my pain

Crushing sacred things you revere
Butchered by the new breed of the media programmed zombie spore
Bloodletting mystic mayhem of the obedient automation... obedient automation
Your fate is truly in the bloody hands of the beast!
Track Name: Whore of the Undead
Remove... the satin robe stripped down...
For the ritual knelt in...
The sacred nonagon she chants the familiar lives

Smoke fills... the hallowed halls
Figures... begin to form
Darkened... monstrosities descend upon her naked form

Black demonic forms restrain their frightened slave
She cannot resist sexual excess endless sadistic violations!

Clawed hands end her struggle,
She gags on demon seed,
Knows she's nothing more than...
A vile repulsive whore of the undead

Providing satisfaction,
For their Hedonic lust
Now she's nothing more than...
A vile repulsive whore of the undead

Penetrating evil slicing through her soul
Sodomized in hell
Broken mortal
Will thrive on the humiliation
Track Name: Unborn (Father)
Father... why hast thou forsaken me?
Father... how can you turn your back on... me?
Darkness all around me, universe my own
Newly formed existence, yet I am alive
Navigate alone this amniotic sea
Your genetic pool, enacts the plan for me

Embryonic version, picture of yourself
Expression of your lust, so happy you must be
Why is there no laughter, all I hear are tears
Tears that mean so much to me when I'm the one who dies

Damn you for your cowardice,
Your weakness and your fear
It wasn't me who chose to live,
You both brought me here
Track Name: Tunnel Rats
Fire in the hole!
Waiting for the blast
Vibrations in the earth
Before the smoke can clear I'm diving underground
Searching through the dark I hunt the Vietcong
Feel the acrid smoke ripping through my lungs
Morality is gone... to kill is to survive

Morality is gone... to kill is to survive
Drive my body forward knowing what I'll find
Drive my body forward through this passage to hell,
I crawl among the bodies and piles of human waste

Then I hear sound and lift my gun to aim
Thunderous exchange, reeling from the pain
Twisting on the ground, tasting my own blood
People running by, they don't try to help
I'm afraid to die... so afraid to die!

So afraid to die
This cannot be true
People running by, thinking I have died
People running by leaving me to die
Casualty of war
Body on the pile

I lie alone, but still refuse to give my soul up to this hell
Flashing back from hell, returning to the world,
Hearing my own screams tearing through the night
Clutching at my chest, my fingers trace the scars
Somehow I've got to end these visions in my head
Bottle in my hand, barrel in my mouth

Bottle in my hand, barrel in my mouth
Somehow I've got to end visions in my head
Fought so many years, this war for sanity
I cannot go on this ends for me today
Track Name: Wretched of the Earth
I beheld again the great whore that sitteth upon the earth
And mortal kings did commit fornication with this whore
And as I watched the wretched of the earth were made drunk
With the wine of her fornication

And I was possessed of the spirit
And in visions I saw the whore upon a scarlet colored beast
And she proclaimed her sins unto heaven
And the name she wore upon her head was the name of blasphemy

And the whore was arrayed in scarlet and gold
And she carried in her hand a jeweled chalice
And in this chalice she collected
The abominations and filthiness of her sins
And as I watched the wretched of the earth were made drunk
With the wine of her fornications

And so this whore did glorify her iniquities
And therefore shall her plagues come in a single day
And she brought upon herself famine and mourning and death
And the merchants of her wickedness shall lament
In the smoke of her burning
