Track Name: Aeger
Aeger, soul desecration
Internalised winds of aeons
Rusting from the core of self
Reaching for a boundless energy

Solar flares, death spiral
Thermonuclear detonations of synapse
Void stalker, mind warp
Unending frequencies of self delusion

Death unending, shatter the soul
My blood freezes, mutilation of flesh

Pierce the veils of time rent apart
Visions of pain, desires never sated
Trying to find the path of affirmation
Syncopation of self-realities, sane constructs

Crimson waves, obsidian pulse
Pulling forces from the event horizon
Silent screams, vacuum life
Floating from deep waters of sleep

Soul destruction, burning inside
Immolating my desire for life

Desecration of my own soul
Screaming inside a shattered mind
Fires heat my skin from beneath
Trigger my extinction of time

Witness the unravelling
Universal degradation
Waiting for events that never occur
Self-loathing concatenation

Waiting for touch, ancient skin
Synapse rust
Screams to a silent abyss

Soul rot, void held
Internal structure rending apart
Acid words, sands of time
The ancient waits for promises never fulfilled

Soul destruction, burning inside
Immolating my desire for life
Track Name: Messiah
I watched the burning sun descending from the skies
I watched time spiral into void
I saw my shadow slowly fade away
I vow I will not be forgotten

Eternity has come to embrace me
My eyes are clouded, my mind contaminated
Your silence now the lie you held out for me to grasp

Years of repeated chronology burn in my chest
An infinity of self, catalysed by your presence
My mind subjugated by futures never to be
Your smile the reaper's teeth I see in my dreams

I will not be forgotten
I shall burn into your eternity
You will forever remember my name
I am your saviour

The sun burns once again with hideous rays
Edging closer to the void of oblivion
I stand chained to the great monolith
Your memory the spectre that haunts my sanity

I rust away within as the aeons pass
Praying for a simulacrum of your face
Disgusted by my own pitiful shell
Hating the shards of my soul I gave you

I will not be forgotten
I shall burn into your eternity
You will forever remember my name
I am your saviour

As I melt into the dust of my psyche
Waiting for the cycle to renew
I watch the sun burn overhead
And imagine your life there

You will never forget my name
You will never forget my face
You will never forget our deeds
You will never forget my promise

Meet me here in the endless abyss
And all will be reborn in perfection
Or embrace the lies once again
And I will watch you drown

This I vow
Track Name: Adinkra
Again, pain
It's touch now a constant
The underlying fabric of existence

A soul tempered by agony
A fate undefined, forces misaligned

Flesh crawls
The worms digging deep
My body succumbing to my mind's twisted perception

Visions of arterial past, future paths wind before me
Though my vision is clouded, they dwell in my memory

But I still hope
As I call from my solitary existence
Until one day
The quandary arises

Light in the sky
A shining beacon
Reaching out to lead me home
On opposing side
To a newly lit flame
Wanting to caress me with heat

“What is this? A lucid dream? A new form of hell? I call out to the abyss, my harsh screams the only sound.”

I stand, transfixed
Not knowing which way to turn
Eternally suspended
Between the star and the flame

I try to move forward
But as I approach
The choice dims
Always stronger at my back

I cannot decide, I must ponder
Maybe there will be a sign?
A divine touch that will signal the way?
Or is this a hell concocted by the recesses of my mind
Willing another in this endless void?

After aeons of debate
The choice no clearer
I close my eyes
And breathe one last time

Looking into my soul
I finally realise
Even fire gutters
Even starlight dies

So I walk into the darkness
Embracing the shadows as they consume me
Knowing that finally
I am home
