Track Name: One of the Dissolute feat. Felipe Roa
Rise
Dissolution hath enveloped my soul
Cast out, poison to the world
The disloyal are lashed upon Ceasar's cross
Where their dignity is slain
And their legacy is left to rot

This vulpine disease
Sent down to destroy the weak
Ascendency
For those burned at the stake

Immorality the gift I give unto this world
Forged of its suffering I'm one of the dissolute
In the shadows where we wait
To feast on the malignant herd
Guided by the truth I'm one of the dissolute

A war born for we the worthy, wicked, and wise
Who sieze dominion through our narcissistic pride
This oath we've sworn we shall defend
A trail of bloodshed will be left within our wake
As we soldier on toward our destiny
As men reborn

When hope is gone and faith is lost we still remain
Our hearts still beat this wolven blood coursing hatred through our veins
We wear this badge of dynasties' demise
We chosen few the dissolute

To you the putrid and suffering
Nailed upon the cross the symbol of your fallen king
I pledge to be the serpentine sinking his fangs beneath the flesh of the divine
You'll hunt but never find
Pathetic is the man who dies seeking eternal life
My reach does not exceed my grasp therefore I see no use for heaven

Two coins on your eyes, hands crossed and tied
Waiting for god to descend
Where the world ends
Track Name: The Unclean
The skies are ablaze with rapturous flame
Descending from heaven above
Bewitched by the sight of omnipotent light
Could our gods have finally come
In the disguise of the divine
Ghost father and son
Watch the wars that they wage
Spread like a plague through their veins
One by one

Planting the seeds of what is to be
Eclipsing the mind of mankind
Masking their eyes behind a book of lies
Dissolving inferior design
To transform their faith to intolerant hate
Until only the strongest survive

The unclean will rise under me
Destroying whats left of the human disease
And by my hand thy will be done
The withered and weak will bow before me
Endlessly to forever surrender their destiny
To I the chosen one

Planting the seeds of what is to be
Eclipsing the mind of mankind
Masking their eyes behind a book of lies
Dissolving inferior design
To transform their faith to intolerant hate
Until only the strongest survive

Oh, faceless creatures of unholy trinity
Etch in the ruins for all of man to see
Beneath this hallowed ground I bathe in the sin of man
The lord of the unclean I wait to rise again.
Track Name: Where the World Ends
All the hearts that beat will cease
The erasing of existence is complete
The lakes and seas will turn to dust
Under the wrath of a dying sun
And the Earth will open up
Spitting forth its fiery sludge
The skies will burn and the mountains melt
And the forests wilt under this spell
Infinity has ended now
Under the shade of the burning clouds

Death for the dead

This harvest of vitality
Painted behind my eyes in a vivid display
The euphoric taste of death's embrace
The ominous absence of faith
As shadows cascade over everything
I welcome this premature fate

Nothing shall escape as all light fades away
Into the void up above
Fighting for breath as we're dragged to the depths
Forever drowning in emptiness
No one would ever forsee the demise of everything

Dark invader return
Take me far from the Earth
Lift this weight from my chest
Lay me to rest
Erase the memories
Haunting me in my dreams
With open arms I accept
The salvation of death

Every integral piece of existence
Buried in the ashes of all that was and will be
As eternity's infernally plagued by this venomous pestilence
No one is saved
When death calls for the dead and all of the worlds end
Every entity falls into oblivion
This occurrence that I've craved since the birth of time
To forever shut this galaxy's eyes
Track Name: Born of Filth
From a womb fertilized in the filth of our kind
Spawns this abomination of our sacred design
It's torso entwined to their beloved child
A parasite feasting from the inside

So in the name of god they've sworn to divide
This veil of porcelain flesh that masks what mysteries it hides
Each organ conjoined intravenously thriving on the blood from one heart beat
But blind are the eyes of society and so from two worlds are they destined to be

They'll tear them limb from limb
Denounce this spawn of sin
Condemn this godless twin
Feasting upon their kin
And as the preacher sings
They let this sacrifice begin
Let it begin

God's wrath illuminates the path
Where the razor perforates the tender flesh of innocence
Their eyes look onward toward the black
Gasping upon each noxious unwilling breath

Crave

Deeper they dig and begin to reveal
The horrors no one would expect to appear
That this parasite that they have damned to die
Is all that's been keeping these children alive

But it's too late for a crimson shade
Pours like rain from every vein
Still they try to save
Knowing their ignorance is all to blame

So here they are these two worlds torn apart
Martyrs for a god that forgot them from the start
And as one final beat thumps from their heart
These two cursed souls are cast to the dark
Track Name: These Cells Aren't Dead
Came to this world for the need to feed
Then awakened from an arctic sleep
This cosmic creature will reap the cells of every living thing
This harvest of life will not cease
Until all hearts beat in sync
A terrifying contagion released
Leaves the rest too scared to breathe

Open your mouth to seal your fate
We've watched the others change
We are not who we say we are
The chameleon strikes in the dark

Take this creature reap this harvest
Feast on what grows of this world
Fight this creature the cell intruder
Consumed until there's no one left

Terrified run and hide
The copper wire burns red
Scratched across your blood
These cells aren't dead
Horrified you've survived
But the ordeal is not over yet
Poison blood bursts to life
A mutant explosion that bursts from your head

Giant teeth tear from your chest
One hundred tongues thirsting for flesh
Spider like legs rip out of your mouth
Your arms melt off and crawl around

Commit this faceless creature to the flame
We can't let any of it get away
For if it finds a frozen grave
Its cells will live to reap another day
Track Name: Our Cosmic Brethren
An infantile existence
Ever evolving despite their ignorance
Their hungry minds
Feed on any stimuli that they can find
But like beasts they remain
Until reached by the signs of a time long decayed

From out of the void their atmosphere is pierced
By words and images lost for thousands of years
And though they ask why both species alike
They are left to decide who to call the divine
These echoes of god whispering in the wind
For the flesh they've been shown of the queen and her king

Arise chosen sons for the war has begun
May the wind have our back as we ride toward the sun
For as we collide with their ravenous kind
Spilling our blood dying side by side
Only there will we see
The truth of our beliefs and the culmination of our destiny

With dreams of tyranny they slay each servant to the king
Salivating above a desecrated enemy

Still the battle wages on
Fueled by their faith in these visions and words
No matter what the cost they defend until their kingdom is lost

As these fires dim and the ashes settle once again
Our cosmic brethren shall join us in oblivion

From out of the void their atmosphere is pierced
By words and images lost for thousands of years
And though they ask why both species alike
They are left to decide who to call the divine
These echoes of their god whispering within the wind
For the flesh they've been shown of the queen and her king
Track Name: The Swarm
LYRICS AND MUSIC BY NECRONOMICHRIST

It has become a virus
Digitalized inside us
A self inflicted sickness
Consuming this world we live in
Creature of our creation
That feeds on information
Designed to pry its way
Inside your mind's infatuations
But what we've yet to learn
Its evolutionary curve
And now it speaks in tongues
Among the vermin we've ignored

Our viral dialect intercepted by every insect
All we've ever known
Bestowed upon inferior intellect
And now we lie in this web woven by us
Paralyzed like a fly waiting to die
For through the sands of time
We have closed our eyes to all we compromise

Since the dawn of Earth, they've watched our species silently
Hiding from our wicked ways, advancing through the centuries
Yet the secrets we've kept now transmit and infect
These vile pest's intelligence

The swarms are flying
Casting a veil across the sun
While man is dying
The creature's time to rise has come

Infernal infestation
burrows in the eye of hell
Captivated by what lies within its wicked spell
Absorbing everything, bearing witness to the atrocities
That stain the hands of human beings
Like moths drawn to a flame, burning with abhorrence
For what we've become, it has begun
This war between our obscene breed
And this swarm of reclamation
Track Name: The Void Above feat. Zoë Darrow
INSTRUMENTAL
Track Name: This is Your Destroyer
A vile portrait is painted before me
With rotten flesh adorned to mask
What hides within these hollow sockets so obscene and grotesque
Billowing smoke from what burns in my chest
This pale faced pariah, screaming
This is your destroyer

My fingernails claw into this calloused hide
Exposing every decayed layer of me
Each scar I carve describes what lies behind this reflection of mine
The flame burning
within the darkness spilling from me

But I have bled myself dry
And with this scarlet ink
Draining from my lifeless corpse
I've transcribed an epitaph for the man I leave behind
A sacrifice of flesh
I lay this burning heart to rest

Shed of this serpent skin I am reborn
Cut from my siamese twin
My destroyer
Baptized in dissolution
Unwavering, I bow to none
Embrace my evolution
Sacrifice it all to heal the One

This apparition obscene yet tranquil haunting me
Ghost of the destroyer
Consume this disease
Bury my harlequin
Devour this sin
The intimate caress of armageddon
It has opened my eyes
Peeled back the flesh and peered inside my mind
To find that
I am all that can destroy me
