Serpenticide 04:39
Forked tongue Speak in every language at once In complete defiance of trust Prophesize disease and purity Spectral falsehood of divinity Ear shattering fallacies, drop to your knees Every orifice bleeds Displaced and obliterated cells Eradicated from this world Struggle to recover a semblance of direction Nervous system sonically destroyed A pool of ruined synapse remains Struggling to connect Failing to recover again The last sound heard A formulated lie A traitor of reality Whose only purpose is to speak the lies Survival is an atrocity We speak the final truth Committing Serpenticide Destroying the enemy Control? Relinquished Reality, destroyed A pool of ruined synapse remains Struggling to connect Failing to recover again The serpent is oneself Speaking the lies, a traitor to all You live, you’ve failed Betraying your kind By remaining alive Destroy yourself now in a glorified suicide A scourge of your own kind Unknowing, you work hard to survive Nothing controls like fear, destroy your self in a ceremony suicide

No honor, no code Fighting for survival What was unified fails Devolved creation With only one goal Survival day to day Hostile environment Violent conditions Berserk, amok, insane Hardens mankind's fate Empathy fades away Blood, battle There's no allegiance Only to oneself Friends, family slaughtered in terror Not retribution or revenge Blindly killing, possessed by fear Berserk, amok, insane Frenzied, desperate charge, rampage killer Empathy fades away Hardens mankind's fate Empathy fades away When only the ruthless remain All benevolent acts have been in vain Idealistic values sacrificed What shall come to pass When only the ruthless remain Struggle, fail There's no allegiance Act only as one Kill them all, even your own They’ll turn on you for less Blindly killing, possessed by fear Berserk, amok, insane Frenzied, desperate charge, rampage killer Empathy fades away Hardens mankind's fate Empathy fades away Season of violence Subjects of destruction Dark valley of death Souls extracted from this earth Purgatory ends For another to begin Pulled down below By an unknown force Tortured, beaten Malnourishment and famine Diseased demise Souls extracted from this earth Religion erased Beliefs debased Burning heat, sears the flesh Boils the skin, melts the bones Organs liquefied, then evaporated Soul has left, to be pulled back in To a mortal hell that will never end Impaled by the beast and left to rot In time, you'll wait, you'll wonder, you'll die In Time, you'll fight, you'll fail, you'll die When only the ruthless remain

Skinless 04:42 video
I witness the destruction, and condone every action Feel the skin peeling away As I'm suffering myself An orgy of pain Brought on by all of man Orgasmic ocean of blood Your skin falls away You carve and cleave and peel away your life Orgasmic ocean of blood Your skin falls away Waves of pain smash into your life For all the sins of living This is your redemption Carve your destiny in the walls of time Orgasmic ocean of blood Your skin falls away You carve and cleave and peel away your life Orgasmic ocean of blood Your skin falls away Waves of pain smash into your life Flaying addiction Sharp blades, affliction Artful carving, human butchery Once you start the cleaving, you’ll no longer need me Extracted to a new world of ecstasy and pain At once you’ll get the feeling as your flesh starts peeling This is what you’ve waited for your entire life I witness the destruction, and condone every action Feel the skin peeling away As I'm suffering myself An orgy of pain Brought on by all of man Orgasmic ocean of blood Your skin falls away You carve and cleave and peel away your life Orgasmic ocean of blood Your skin falls away Waves of pain smash into your life Coming to an end To be skinless is to struggle on Keep carving, keep flaying Your existence in a pile on the floor Reborn, resurrected Skinned alive, self inflicted Pure death is addictive SKINLESS EXISTENCE

Flamethrower 04:18
Wielding the fire of hell in my hands I set the world ablaze They say they’ll fight to the death I’m here to assure their promise is kept Expect a fight to the death Their promise will be kept Wanting to destroy everything in my path I set the world ablaze They say they’ll fight to the death I’m here to assure their promise is kept Expect a fight to the death Their promise will be kept Take your life away Fighting spirits in the mist Flamethrower, soul stealer Only death is real Life is just a method Birth is just the first phase Of fading away They disappear like ghosts Refused passage and destroyed on their path Redemption denied Wasted land Death is a relief The gates close They disappear, ghosts Spirits denied and destroyed on their path Purgatory would be a welcome end Refusal, everything you’ve dreamed Unrealized, die a thousand deaths The gates close Fool yourself no more Expect the worst and even worse will follow Hate filled journey to the end Gnawing their flesh A drill through the fucking eye I, the flamethrower Take your life away Fighting spirits in the mist Flamethrower, soul stealer Redemption denied Wasted land Death is a relief The gates close It’s an inherent cynicism to be respected, not condemned Falling apart, souls stuck between, in a casket and left to rot Confined benevolence, contorted memories Dark souls and black hearts unite Lead us to darkness, glory awaits

Awaken from slumber Seize the thrones of power Leading his minions Purity devoured Devotion to cruelty, guided by lies Death of divinity Renounce all loyalty and cut all ties Striking from the darkness, powerful, impervious Vessels of hatred, cauldron of sin Lead us to darkness, glory awaits Confined benevolence, initiate the fall of Christ Straight from hell, from the fire, I’ll crush your sinners You will die in the night, as your faith burns Pray to god, as you cower, we smell your fear You will die, tonight, the beast smells blood I hear your faith screaming The weakest ones are chosen first Striking from the darkness, powerful, impervious Vessels of hatred, cauldron of sin Lead us to darkness, glory awaits Confined benevolence, initiate the fall of Christ Straight from hell, from the fire, I’ll crush your sinners You will die in the night, as your faith burns Pray to god, as you cower, we smell your fear You will die, tonight, the beast smells blood Bridges crossed and promises burnt Throughout your holy land Gaze upon your savior now A prophecy failed THE BEAST SMELLS BLOOD! Invert that cross, invert them all Bleed them of all power Initiate the fall of Christ! Straight from hell, from the fire, I’ll crush your sinners You will die in the night, as your faith burns Pray to god, as you cower, we smell your fear You will die, tonight, the beast smells blood
6.
Visions of death, my skin ripped to shreds You’re a curse with crosses to bear Within the vacuum, suffocated world Victims fall trapped To a funeral curse Desolate, walk aimlessly I’ve read the book of lies with no conclusion Confinement, bereaved offer hope That someday we’ll be free Funeral Curse With the procession, enter through The light ahead, a black hole behind Faith gives you hope, there’s something beyond You will fall to this funeral curse Funeral Curse The light will just blind you, as you creep closer Deception ahead, despair behind A hammer to hell, shatter the earth March forth to your funeral curse Impaled, decayed various states of decomposition Headless, skinned Drive the final nail, casket a flame This has been painful, last words
7.
WAR! The faint sound of doom creeps closer Mist over the mountains, death We’ll push them, into their graves Cavernous ground, smash a window to hell Your race has withered, your spirit crushed No love left, no emotion, barely anything Beaten Pain is welcome, to feel anything at all A landscape of utter despair We’ll push them, into their graves We hear your helpless cries We hope your race dies Only hope Quick demise Silent flash Obliteration
