Track Name: The Defected Era
Being separated
Contaminated
Isolation created this world’s epidemic
Being desecrated
Hated
Saturated in this sceptical imagination
So confined
Completely disconnected from this world
Welcoming
This restricted way
This array of light forever in my eyes
I’ve tried
To remind myself of recent life
It’s gone
Who am I?
Who am I?
Slowly retrieving days
Ashamed to say that I obeyed
Manufactured guilt
To tune us to a state
Controlled frame of mind
Which is so confined
Become one with this frame and display this
Gift of purity
This body is a place the mind can never escape
Lost amongst the faceless
Witnessing
A new sense of mortality
Can’t you feel this presence I leave?
I leave
Have I just opened my eyes for the first time?
Free from this bind
Restricting my mind
Can’t you see?
That your limited eyes are weak
Can’t you see?
Your limited mind is bleak
Witnessing
A new sense of morality
Questioning
My previous life’s beliefs
So confined
Rest of my days in this facility
Left to grieve on my past insecurities
Face this place
I can never escape
I am relieved
I am here
Track Name: Mindless
Devastation
Thanks to our creator
How clever
To lead on the weak
Various authors
Dead and gone
Look at what you’ve done
Mindless
Internal ruin inflicted
Sheep with no fleece
Blindly follow
Kill for your belief
Murder every last woman or child
Can’t you feel this void?
Upon us all
Can’t you see this written restriction?
Testify
Against my needs
Left to be within this constriction
Left to die
No empathy
Patronise
Undoubtedly
So hide behind the veil
Your eyes disguised by lies
It’s fucking sickening
It’s fucking sickening
Outward perspective
Inward impossible
A scripture so old
The author created these hills
Or so it’s believed
Death of God
I wish you could see what you’ve done
Mindless
Hold on
It’s begun
What drives a man to murder?
Mindless
No reasons
Release these demons
Release these demons
In the name of nothing
You murder
Think for yourself
Not your god
Track Name: Beyond Repressed
Undiscovered
Covered in filth
Become one with this scum
Left to rot
Completely forgotten
Left to bless this mess with death
I once resented
Now I respect this
Scum I’ve become one with
Completely rejected
Amongst the neglected
But never regret this
Path that I went with
Constantly questioned
And never accepted
Amongst the ones who claim they’re respected
I resent them
I resent your ways
How you blindly follow
Through this filtered haze
To waste the days of your sorrow
You think that we’re no better
Constantly engaged by the other life
Constantly watching them strive for nothing
I watch you portray this display of life
But this array you’re left with is beyond repressed
Left between a dream or a pointless direction
Yet you can’t seem to relieve this tension
So gullible
So restrained within yourself
The sin within you is bleak
Speak the truth and seek relief
As you continue to think
You look at my life with disgust
You’ll never achieve this dream you lead
Are you aware of your apathy?
Left between a dream or a pointless direction
Yet you can’t seem to relieve this tension
You have become beyond repressed
Undiscovered
Going insane
Your meaning is bleak
So fabricated with this desperate display
Yet you can explain
This taste that you seek
Track Name: A Culture Defiled
Falling
Prey to the beast
Creator of sin
Accept this gift
Moulding
A face to grace a race with hate
And spread this seed
Come to
Fear our limits are exceeded
Rest your prior sense
And become the defected
Can there be a different way of being?
There can be a different release
Can't you see this way of life is eating?
The desperate mind of those who still believe
I still believe
Our so-called maker
The creator of common misbehaviour
Underestimated us
The first restricted species
Devolved with written theories
A culture defiled
Instincts quick to synch with restriction
At risk of distant delinquents
A culture defined
Complicated
Uncreatable
Become betrayed by the one you obey
Falling
Prey to the beast
Creator of sin
Accept this gift
Moulding
A face to grace a race with hate
And spread this seed
Come to
Fear our limits are exceeded
Rest your prior sense
Become defected
Understand an individual life is for you to make
Separate this simple state of mind and originate
Understand an individual life is for you to make
Separate this simple state of mind and
Exceed the limits
Redirect this ego
Disconnect from it all
Free this grip from this scripted reality
Become one with this world
Rather than try understand
Stand on your own again
Exceed the limits
Redirect this ego
Disconnect from it all
Free yourself
Free yourself
Free yourself
Free yourself
Track Name: The Epidemic
I can’t believe it’s been over a decade
Since I placed this final stitch into my face I wanted
Created
A personal sedation
A place free from reality
Replace this state with this timeless perception
Left to guide my own life
Take this away
I have begun to rely
On fabricated eyes
Why?
Deep inside
Bleeds a life
Lost
Relief of time
Brings peace of mind
At times I’m silent
But violently screaming
Pleading for something
To remind me I’m dreaming
At times I’m silent
But violently screaming
Pleading for something
To remind me I’m dreaming
Bleeding
Feeding
Seeding within
Left to be one with my life
My mask has always been my shade but
My comfort in dusk has slowly faded
With this array of light that seeps through
A stray stitch which over time created
This display of dawn
This tear’s unbearable
Now forever tainted by this blinding light
A new perspective is born
And it’s torn
My life apart
I’ve strived so long for peace in darkness
I’ve strived so long for this.
Fire See it
Fire See it
Fire See it
Fire See it
Fire See this burn
My mask still fits perfectly but slowly
Unravelling and showing me purity
Creating a hole in this canvas
Behold my soul’s first glance at this madness
Deep inside
Bleeds a life
Track Name: Waiting For Demise
Prodigy of nothing
Born into common ground
Failure of everything
Useless to your ambitions
Conforming to this numbing
Suffering way of life
Hidden in society
Find hope in dark of night

Anxious obedient
Religious dog of Christ
Plagiarised fictional chronicle
Obnoxious sickening myth
Acceptance unredeemed
With edgeless rusted knives
Cavernous wounds of bleeding
Infected hollow preachers

Arise
To reality
A scene of blackened times
Goodnight
To a fantasy
Useless maggot of grime

Deny relations
Avoid these empty minds
Spastic congregation
Innovating waste of life

Conscience exploding
Images disgusting
Force fed a design
Created for a lesser kind
No cure for this
Shit stained mind
No easy way to wash it away
Try to ignore this
Pulsing virus
Regurgitated carcass
Mass produced shameless bile

Foreseen the antidote
The powers kept it close
In fear of a free thinking herd
Reclaim the power back

The cult can never hide
Spreading wings of darkness
Free thinking cures the blind
Blood suckers
Taking more than they deserve
Silent masquerade
Someday the guilt will find
Creating sorrowed cries

Sacrificial bleeding for a so called saviour
Pain stakingly creating the worst behaviour
Now justified
Waiting for demise

Repulsive idols gracing a rotten throne
Segregated
Dreading your time alone
Scriptures burnt with fire
Icons shrieking cries
Track Name: Abysmal Thoughts
Why am I here?
I don’t care for this
You’re all pathetic
I’m done
Time after time
I’ve tried
Still I don’t understand
I stand alone disgusted
You’ve claimed I’m wrong again
I say you’re all tame and weak
Your desperate eyes
Speak your scripted mind
I can’t deny this
I seek relief from this misery
This torture ends
I can’t relate here
I cannot seem to leave this place
This torture ends
Resent aside
I cannot see guidance before me
There’s nothing left here for me
Nothing to believe in
I have strived all my life only to realise
This path that I’ve created
Through life was always tainted
With the blood of a suicide
I feel alive with this rope around my neck
Relieving
Achieving
This dream of leaving
All for one last breath
Why pray?
There cannot be
An afterlife
There will not be
Another time I crave
Why pray?
There cannot be
An afterlife
There will not be
Another time I crave
An end to this
Wasted time
This abandoned life
The day that my
Lifeless remains remain decomposing
Forgotten and left to decompress
No respect for this mess that I’ve left
Open your eyes!
See all this!
I seek no relief with this life now deceased
Please do not grieve
Why would I?
Track Name: North
Forcefully unwilling a torrent of nature
Cold black diminished night
Solidified burning
Scolding red landscapes
Tainted cardinals of bleeding sands
Unthinkable distance
Measured by hatred
Scum-sucking way of the mass
Delinquent dust storms cutting life’s throat
Disgustingly draining
Infested
Decaying
North

Twisted the tumours of man’s growth
Through distance so blinded on how they choke
No acts of cult
Just bleeding hands
Defiled epidemic of power trip
Shameless antagonist

Hide from the seething weight of dogma
The apocalypse
The void in society
Long for the inner being burning
Anaesthetic
Craving the disgusting
Strip back the mind
Eyes burnt black from seeing the light

Lands engorged
With wasted souls

Look near the end is coming
Look for the zombie mass
The stench of towering building
The pile of human trash

Scrambling for common purpose
Scrambling for lack of thought
The pulsing wound of desired
Gullible human trash

Horizon of blood
From memories hands
Gratefully brutal
Disgustingly painful baron sands
There is no life
But life seems to be
Accustomed to darkness
Regathering souls found a peaceful place up north.

Up North
