Track Name: Panic in the Streets
(instrumental)
Track Name: The Way of all Flesh Synthetic
The Way of all Flesh Synthetic

Cybernetic organism, human machine systems
Stalking amongst you, recording your every move
Fusion of organic and synthetic matter
Like you and I in every way, agents waiting for the day

Ever watchful, ever aware
Communication far beyond
The blackness of a crystal sea, and a silver sun
Awaiting for the message, send vengeance from the void
The signal prophetic, the way of all flesh synthetic

Light the beacon at Giza, prep the runways of Nazca
Let the sun shine through Stonehenge, as the stars and the planets align
Fear the wrath of an alien mind, with a body made of metal
And an unknown concept of time

Ever watchful, ever aware
Communications far beyond
The blackness of a crystal sea, and a silver sun
The message is received, were coming from the void
how'd you ever think you'd make it, the way of all flesh synthetic

Cybernetic organism, human machine systems
Stalking amongst you, recording your every move
Fusion of organic and synthetic matter
Like you and I in every way, agents waiting for the day
Track Name: Sees Things, Predicts Things
Sees Things, Predicts Things

I'm not insane, although that's how it seems
Their watching from afar, from a belt of stars
The morning the sun ceases to shine
The day doesn't break, the moon doesn't rise

Frustrated with science, I turned to prophecy
Hate the skeptic who exposes what will come to be
The defining moments of your life
With the blink of an eye, mere increment of time

This has all happened before
This will all happen again

Must humanity be stained forever
With a virus in our hearts
Malice thrives on fear and terror
Sit back and watch you tear yourselves apart

Half remembered, fanatics have their dreams
Fate is no crime, your destiny doesn't lie
In invisible ink atop your brow was written fiend
It doesn't take a wise man to see what I see

Mesmerized, in trance you are to me
Look right in front of you, don't be so naive
The nerve you have to call me a liar
This heart is broken, but my brain is on fire

This has all happened before
This will all happen again

Must humanity be stained forever
With a virus in our hearts
Malice thrives on fear and terror
Sit back and watch you tear yourselves apart
Track Name: Eradication of Deviants
Eradication of Deviants

In stasis we dwelt forever
Or so it seemed
Entombed in this amniotic fluid
Our lives sustained
Aeons of experimentation
A chronology of pain
Invented by jackals
Humanity's insane

We return to insinuate this forever impending catastrophe
Completely incapable of being stopped
Humanity was reborn infinite times before
And drowned in fire an infinity more

Out of control
Spiralling madness
Friend against friend
Mother versus child

Tear up the roots
Leave no trace behind
Make them understand
Gods deliverance are lies

We return to insinuate this forever impending catastrophe
Completely incapable of being stopped
Humanity was reborn infinite times before
And drowned in fire an infinity more
Track Name: Re-emerge to Breathe
Re-emerge to Breath

The machine surrounds you and steals your mind
Breaks part your form, and extracts your eyes
For those of us who live to see such times
Remember that the fish rots from the head

Plan for the final moves like chess
The faceless ones who live to oppress
The verdict stands at last and will not rest
Sentence them all to death

Live in the gutter and rise to riot
Set the air on fire
Underlings, remember your lives are meant for suffering
This is your finest hour

Re-emerge to breath

Mindflayer at work, programmer of mindz
Into your subconscious, fooled by a simple guise
Drowning in the very depths of your skull
Of a soul lost long ago

Raise a rampage in the center of the city
Kill the oppressor, the ones with no pity
Raise a banner drenched in alien blood
Signal a message to rebel
And send them to hell

Live in the woods, attack and retreat
Set the forest on fire
Underlings, your lives were nothing
Until this very moment in time
This is your finest hour

No more chances
No more mistakes
No more delusions
No more control

Live in the hills, defend from up high
Smote the mountain in their ruin
Underlings, danger draws near
Time to choose between fight or flight
This is your finest hour

Re-emerge to breath
Track Name: Cyborg Justice
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Carrying the Fire
Carrying the Fire

Psionic masterminds, understand mankind is mankind
Nor good nor evil nor pure
Nor black at heart, doomed from the start
She carries a torch through the dark,
Though struggles within, a new fire begins
How could the bad overshadow the good in the end

Take her to the tower
Set her in bonds
Last chance for this world is over
The comet burns bright, the war ends tonight
Take this scum out of my sight
Suffer the last wrath of a hand that bites

You put the wrong ones in charge
Built cities on the graves of thousands
You feared your own evolution and backwards you went
The energy you harnessed you used for war
Human experimentation, animal exploitation
You stole people's lives, in the name of a false lie

How did we ever think we'd make it, what could I have done, I am only one,
Our minds never matured, how can anyone ever triumph in this chasm
Of greed deception and jealousy, the way to succeed is not how it should be
The ones who stuck out were hammered down, I guess now they are free

Take her to the tower
Set her in bonds
Last chance for this world is over
The comet burns bright, the war ends tonight
Take this fucking scum out of my sight
Suffer the last wrath of a hand that bites

Carrying the fire, don't look down on us all
The king rats were liars, the individual is so small
What of our achievements
Would it make any difference at all
If the glorious outweighed the terrible

No!


Nothing surprises me these days
Do not fear, your life will not pass as a great event
Karma can be so unfair, was my life one so rare?
Hear your earth scream aloud
You are not wanted here

It doesn't want people.
Track Name: Xenocide
Xenocide

Soulless, cadaverous, dead on the inside
You lived your life to endlessly feed
We've come back to take what's ours, what we gave you
Our ideas, were twisted in your minds infection
Devolved, fraudulent, centered around fear
Take your last breath, shed your last tear

You have now reached the point of no return
All you wanted was to know

Sandstorms raging over Giza
Lightning atop Everest (doom mountain)
Vortex from the floor of the Atlantic
Wildfires burn the wilderness, they bleed

This has all happened before
This will all happen again
Bow down before your idols, everyone plays a role
unconscious to the fact, with no second chance

Don't look, don't fear, this is your finest hour
Not war, not control, this is your Xenocide
Don't think, don't question, accept what must be done
Not war, not control, this is your Xenocide

Heaven has fallen, hell is frozen
Morning passes by but brings no day
All that exists is burnt for watch fires
Humanity clings until there's nothing left to burn

Lay down and die, others panic
some just sit and watch their children fade
animals rampant, dogs devour their masters
breathe on fading embers before darkness reigns

And as blood runs up to keep your heart
Pounding with its final thoughts
You at last witness the beauty
Until your burning star expires
and now in the final seconds, you wanted to know....now you know
Track Name: Necropolis
Necropolis

Through the jungle by the river Styx
I've journed long and far this day
Lurking shadows in the parapets
Will never make me turn away
Darkened city veiled in crimson mist
Entombed in time without decay
Never thought it would be like this
It feels like I'm living inside a dream
But my mind tells me I'm

Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis

Now I know what it's like to be
Inside the city of the dead
All I think of is breaking free
>From all the spells chained to my head
Sword and axe are my destiny
I watch the stars turning blood red
There is light yes I've got to believe
For this feels like living inside a dream
I know now that I am

Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis

I have seen your cities burning
I have felt your daughters yearning
For the peace before the tides of war
I have witnessed funeral pyres
Burning bright with man's desire
I will fight the demon horde forever more

The world is full of mysteries
That men have never seen before
Magik lives in all dynasties
The light of love shines ever more
In the crypt of Atlantean Kings
I found what I was looking for
Magik Trident of Volusia's Sea
I know it's like living inside a dream
But don't you ever get

Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
