Track Name: Profanity Galore
High hopes of a prodigious race
The marvellous splendours of death and decay
Scriptures engraved on stone tablets of time
Buried in the dirt and dug up again
The screaming of melancholic heart
To witness the rapture - the twist of a tongue

Is it a free ride to the land of no tomorrow?
To dampen the desert aching in chest?
There is no explanation
No sanctity to be found
No knowledge nor wisdom derive from the stillness of time
No need to exalt the prophet's not so meticulous texts

But we so desperately strive to be ruled and despotism…
Despotism seems like martyr's hand stretching out the furthest
Like a beaten dog with a collar who kneels down by a clenching fist
But gets up again humble and loyal
We kick the dirt in the ground just to raise dust
Meaningless actions of hopelessness

There is no significant meaning in wealth, virtue and innocence
No significant meaning when eyes are tools of the blind
All wisdom is hanging from gallows and out of reach
Every stone that we turn, every building we build
Every chapter we write, every stellar dream that we have

It feels like when we are through with ourselves
Every monument and every golden statue will stand galore
Mocking at our profound impression we held so dear
Track Name: I Am
I was there when universe gave birth
I was there when time was taking form
I saw the first light manifesting from primeval darkness
I rode on that first star

I witnessed the splendours of creation
I sweep through planes
I am out of sight and out of reach
I breathe eternity and I am ever-present

I am perpetual
My existence is unparalleled
There is no life without me
I spew ash where life had grown

I see no good and seek no evil
I see all and everything
My eyes are empty, I watch from cosmos
I am bound by no time and no dimension is my home

I am cold wind that blows
I am forest that shrieks for thousand years
I am thunder in the sky
I am mountains
I am torrent rushing through space
I am alone, followed by grief
I take no prisoners
I grant no wishes

You will never feel me, touch me, deny me
You will never hear me call your name
You'll never see me when I come
I move with the sound of silence

I am the question answered
I am the bringer of the end
I am Death
Track Name: Rime
She is the night and the silhouette of my dreams
Bringing the wind of prosperity to calm my nature
Her kiss so cold, I could feel the pain of many who she kissed before

She ices my passion and my flame
Mesmerizes me with her dance as a snake, its pray
She holds my hand and takes me to the abyss
And lets me watch the beauty of her destruction

Crows shall carry my name among the living
Among those who I left behind
Hear their cry

Steps are slow
I fight my sickness as I wander through her frozen tears
Body is cold, fingers black and numb
Waiting for the eternal sleep, for her to cover me
Gasping for air and screaming
Track Name: A Race Without Hope
Turn around, do you see their deceit?
All the faces numb and scornful
When the mind is ill and the will long gone
It's a lingering death that binds them all

Hell followed
Walk of atonement never done
Hell followed
Walk of atonement never done
Track Name: Gaps of Existence
There is no doubt of men's frivolity
No sincere exclaims in delight
No valid hope transcends the fences of fear
It’s so convenient to hold men in distraught

Conformed revelations to be consumed and tailored to fit
Profound aesthetics when maggots eat your corpse
Elaborate style of writing - just believe what I say
Hope is an extension to suffering

False oath as common as night and day becomes
Temporary exhibition in golden halls of dreams
Exemplary punishment to see the sight of Elysium
The faceless God is gloating in their faces
And yet they marvel and raise their fingers up
Extending all but the one that matters
Nothing is as unambiguous as it seems
As above, so below

And when earth is without form and endless void is all there is
When showers of sand have no desert left to settle
When I is destroyed and there is no we
Daath dwellers rejoice
As all masks are cast aside and all eyes wide open
Then the Abyss becomes visible through the gaps of existence
Track Name: The Dead Sleep With Their Eyes Open
Forsaken times
Forsaken feelings
In the presence of misconception
The dead sleep with their eyes open

The reflection in the river
No self-control, no self-restraint
You will be no judge
The dead sleep with their eyes open

When you sleep
And when you dream
You always see them staring
The dead sleep with their eyes open

Alone, hidden in the shadows
The dead sleep…
Alone, hidden in the shadows
With their eyes open…

In the final hour
When the void begins to widen
The dead sleep with their eyes open
Track Name: Night
Oh marvellous silence, prime, untamed,
Untouched, enchanted
So full of grace

Silent traveller on never-ending line it treads
It casts no shadow, bears no light
Peaceful, calm, above and beyond
Never starts, never ends, continuous

Lonesome gleam of moon dances in the night
Multitude of stars, immeasurably distant
Galaxies on the farthest reaches of the cosmos
You embrace it all so lightly, as I stare in awe

Oh marvellous silence, prime, untamed,
Untouched and enchanted
So full of grace

Creatures of the night – Nocturnal sensation
Archaic magic unified – Nocturnal sensation
Secrets of the night – Nocturnal sensation
Horror mystified – Nocturnal sensation

Nocturnal sensation…
