Black Glory 02:54
Chorus: There is no princess asleep, dark towers Beware the wizards though, dark powers Spells invoked in these, dark hours Concealed, hiding in the dark, cowards I can’t smell in the dark, flowers Hear screams, tortured soul, dark prowlers Acid rain wash in the dark showers More than black, the dark empowers Verse: I hear the creepies crawling Through the night and into the morning Looking for the prize, you’ll get no warning I’m just trying to eat, but they got me warring Witch doctor got my mind snoring Don’t feel the temperature soaring Light the candle the darkness pouring No more skies for the eagles to soar in Through these ropes these rats keep gnawing Impossibility, can’t ignore it Impermanence, permanence, many stories Close eyes, meditate, Black Glory Black Glory, Black Glory, Black Glory

Verse 1: Abuse the alien, construct avenger Lure my anger, take anything you need For my hands healed thunder, the strongest contempt You drain my youth, embracing the poisonous stench Commander of my own strength Recovering from wounds to rise again Vulnerable flesh, through the maze with punishable steps Through the old ruins where the enemy’s kept And so they shall burn, coz it’s your belief so in time it’s your turn Blasphemous hypocrite, eternal desolate Hatred to the warrior, we captured your life Replenished your soul Judge but beware, for my disgust stops me blinding your stare Necessary evil, hunted, hated, feared I cannot escape my own concerns I don’t need what I want I want what I need Think hard before you speak to me Chorus: Necessary evil Gonna take your soul Gonna take your soul Gonna take your soul Verse 2: Killing everyone, friend or foe Overcome my fear, fear contagious For I exist like a dragon plague of ages They don’t fear men They don’t fear them men no more My hands burn fire As I denounce their flesh it’s hell You didn’t imagine when you slept Where you would awake and dwell I breathed the air I felt the death Wrestled with God above the stars of a thousand nights Devoted servants The sickness spreads Into the shapes of spiders across your chest
3.
Nothing to fear, only life to live How blessed are we the privileged Do what we do, ain’t begging no friends On the hunt, capturing them ends Some prowling in packs and when capturing ends And making ends meet we’ll descend ascend Back before birth Back before earth Back before you can summon any curse This is first, this is a must Elephant musth Tiger stalks, makes all the monkeys chatter And the sounds ring nonsense There’s something stirring Deep in the jungles Held too long down by the jugular Word jugglers, jaguars Coming at you where at you are Chorus: Energy’s right, state of mind Mind state of right energies combine Trust my hands while hands wield trusted cutlasses for my spine Predators preach, predators prey Silver haired, cursing yesterday I summon my heart to the fore Death be knocking on that door

Shadows 04:02
They offered the food But we could smell the stench Of poisons inside the bread Baked in the peace of a night With the fury of self Look at how nice they write Gather them slowly For they fear and they fright Lure it forward For it hides within The screams didn’t wake my sleep Until I felt through the skin Until I felt through the skin Chorus: The devils of death dance damned in their dress Kidnapped the soul, ego is emptyless With your shadow witches play Unspeakable words of life I can see now why some angels fight Verse 2: Be my blood, my blood be yours Swear this oath, don’t fret the cost What you weigh has no weight Come this way, don’t you fear Feel the heat from my hand Keep you warm, I’ll keep you warm Don’t feel torn, don’t feel lost Feel the pain of the angels caught in them heavenly fogs Let them fly from your hands Find a peace, understand Can’t take the wake, I need a sleep Find a peace Understand

Abacus 03:33
Trial and error like God Find myself and I’m lost Spiritual fog, blurring, misting my sight Missing the glow of the light, absorbing the nights Blood and iron’ll make ‘em move right Rapidly rapid, ravenous enemy Ravaging, relishing, genocide, bloodshed Bloodthirsty savages, hunting all heads All fed Plenty fattened for the kill, they live but they’re dead The pleasures of flesh consume the presence of death Through the sinew and flesh All sins I accept Karma accepted, all things ingested Immunity weak, no resistance Resistance infected Resistance infected Chorus: The Candyman plays a song with a sickening warmth It’s haunting to catch, you’re caught His hideous face unseen by these eyes For these eyes can’t see through the diamonds and gold Through the diamonds and gold Verse 2: Fire fury, sword in my hand One of mice or truly one of man One of love or conceiving a deceptive plan Warlords treading an enemy’s land, enemies plan Friends, enemies just played a joker’s hand Silent noise, whisper the voice if mention the name Silhouettes cradle the figurines on display A sordid lust enticed the sweetest soul The most comforting warmth Boasts the horror with which it betrayed With which it betrayed

Numbers 03:13

Zero 03:27
Paint the whole night Stage fright the soul Bite them in sleep slow Starting the blood seeping and creep low Watch the mess it’s a creepshow Through the keyhole Another peepshow See what they reap it’s so lethal Residents evil The number a zero The math they bleed for Seduced like before The same the sequel Numb on the seesaw Never the equal Looking for a hero Channel Zero Chorus: She watch she watch She watch she watch She watch she watch Zero

Verse 1. Strawberry blood, position the dead There is purity, there is less Farewell to the flesh Failing a quest No enemy, no friend Fallen demons ascend Blurring what I dreamt Witch bites bless Commence revenge Resurrect who you love It’s a test just to breathe You could never keep the tender secret Always obedient Treacherous disciples, cosy sleeping Smell the scheming See your ghost, vision a horror scope I’m waiting to strike I swear to the night Digest the moment, swear in blood Everything too calm See no escape, vision the rape Face the fury, destiny blurred Spoken a word, nothing revealed Everything heard Feeling the thirst, getting you first Getting you first, doing the worst Chorus: When the witch bites your flesh When your nobility has no dress When your wealth has no worth When all your pains no longer hurt Verse 2: Talk to me while I sleep For I can’t hear you while I wake You know my thoughts Before they break into the colours of hate Everything loved Weakening grip, willing soul, withering foe But I’m wasting against the flow Wanting a point Waking a sleep Wading a deep Washing the wound Blacken the light It’s hurting my eyes coz I keep a disguise Guise feeding these thieves Fallen to die, strength in faith You’ve never known your lust to wait Raise the hand, let the slaughter begin The children lied and took away your sins Looking from the outside in Watching that snake shedding its skin Could’ve been the strength that you sought Could’ve been the enemy we needed to see Could’ve been the blood we needed to grow Coz I know what you saw in the light Brought pain to your eyes The play begins, the slaughter began Accept the fear and take my hand Take my hand, take my hand, Take my hand
9.
Priests need feeding, flies in my face Hell fire burning all at the stake No one’s safe All them nights, all them days, all them prays Seems like my life’s not mine for my faith Verse 1: Inflame a legacy, searing your hate Violating your love, immersion in space Endless melody charming the face Eloquent guises, redemption, disgrace Spiritual embrace emblaze that you chase Bloodthirsty cannibal Silently stealth Imagine more savage than the savage itself More savage than the savage itself Verse 2: Watching in silence, see the words he spoke Satan’s poetry, that’s what he wrote Chose the prose with a God in sight But I still find myself alone at night Challenging assassin, carnivorous host I screamed your name, silhouetting a ghost My betrayal, your trust Noble lust, the magic of the spell Deciphering the words that were spelt Severely self More savage than the savage itself More savage than the savage itself
10.
Seventy thousand angels Pulling seventy thousand reins Falling for seventy thousand years To never reach the bottom Terrible curdling sounds Integrate them together Consume them, heat them up hard like stone Stern and severe Straying in evil Hear my fury Raging sighs Darkening, quakening changes Wrote its lies in millions of bastard pages In millions of bastard pages Life engages Chorus: The white death got me See the death was white White shadows haunt me Taunt me to madness Verse 2: The dragons of virtue See the seas and the heavens at one time It rode the stars but they collapsed within themselves And nobody found the wealth As it died, the spirit, it rose into the skies And formed into clouds And when it cries The whole earth can feel the pain when it rains Words of war, preservation, I will attack with aggression Counter attack opposition Clash, the final mission With purpose precision Strategic condition Strategic condition
11.
Toxic Faith 02:25
Verse 1: Scratch at the walls of the cave Hear the howls of the wolves on the chase They tore at every page That he swore by every day Toxic faith Unkept promises, promises kept hidden away Soul now liquid, doomed to decay Seduced by that wisdom Numb to the pain I digest too much, too much to digest See the emperor’s dress is what I saw I dream a dinosaur Terrible lizard The air foul for its breath Burns to my heart, lungs Spores in my chest Chorus: I dream a dinosaur Terrible lizard
