Lyrics

Reviver
In the system of the arbitrary/ I bestow the intent/ Reviver of an age/ without a savior/ I become your death/ as I bare witness/ my reality deforms/ for I have seen a scorched earth/ resting between our worlds/ there is no truth aligned with this/ there is only the one who is lost/ through fire in blood/ true tempest/ a restless sun/ the sky is a high rise/ a blue colossal collapse/ of atoms and aeons / wars are waged within// the smallest glow in my darkest hour/ time becomes an all-devouring sun/ this is a war that cannot be won/ all hail the serpent/ ascend to eat your gods/ I rest in my golden age// reviver/ of deathless visions/ rejuvenated discourse/ as I bare witness/ my reality deforms/ for I have seen a scorched earth/ resting between our worlds/ there is no truth aligned with this/ there is only the one who is lost/ through fire in blood/ true tempest/ a restless sun// the smallest glow in my darkest hour/ time becomes an all-devouring sun/ this is a war that cannot be won/ all hail the serpent/ ascend to eat your gods/ I rest in my golden age
Exo Reign
I stare dead into the eyes of the mad/ nesting in the hive of the serpent/ under the reign of the unknown/ deep in the gloom of these barren streets/ exo reign/ resting upon a godless intent/ no longer able to redeem life itself/ hiding beneath all flesh and soul/ the imperative of a nightmare/ a sun that never sets/ that cannot be stopped/ it cannot be stopped/ my exo reign/ lead the way/ I’ll blindly follow/ I am exo reigned/ a slave to an exterior force/ the severance of man/ sinuous are the rivers of blood// for I am dreaming/ dreaming of the dead// hiding beneath all flesh and soul/ the imperative of a nightmare/ a sun that never sets/ that cannot be stopped/ I stare dead into the eyes of the mad/ nesting in the hive of the serpent/ under the reign of the unknown/ deep in the gloom of these barren streets// for I am dreaming/ dreaming of the dead
Ahab
Deep in Ahab’s heart/ there is nothing/ that is not human/ and he is more human/ depraved of emotions/ begun his fate/ complex is the night and oceans/ whalebone reminder/ complex is the night/ thirsting for apex and splendor// in which he lost his sanity/ sinking towards the bottom/ to remain forever damned/ in the hour of glorious/ reprisal/ I become the mastodon// transcending fiction/ imagining/ his quest for revenge/ as his dismembered heart reassembles/ touching the thin skin of my soul// in which he lost his sanity/ sinking towards the bottom/ to remain forever damned/ in the hour of glorious/ reprisal/ I become the mastodon// ungodly voyager/ ungodly godlike man/ the exuberance of love/ the exuberance of hate/ colossal whale death/ Ahab is dragged down/ Ahab is drowned/ Ahab gets no revenge// in which he lost his sanity/ sinking towards the bottom/ to remain forever damned/ in the hour of glorious/ reprisal/ I become the mastodon
Void Maker
In this state of reverie/ everything dies/ let darkness cover me/ this system survives/ void maker/ I beg unto thee/ takes this life/ an abattoir to receive// given to the light/ my insanity/ given to the night/ everything dies/ the place where I come alive/ gazing at the cold black sky/ no reason to find/ no place to hide/ mountains to climb inside// in this state of reverie/ I beg unto thee/ I am the void/ bringer of plagues/ void maker/ I beg unto thee/ deathless visions/ the illusion you see in me// given to the light/ my insanity/ given to the night/ everything dies/ the place where I come alive/ gazing at the cold black sky/ no reason to find/ no place to hide/ mountains to climb inside// in this state of reverie/ everything dies/ void maker/ take this life// given to the light/ my insanity/ given to the night/ everything dies/ the place where I come alive/ gazing at the cold black sky/ no reason to find/ no place to hide/ mountains to climb inside// void maker/ bringer of death/ void maker/ bringer of death
Waves of Trance
Devote the system/ no failure to communicate/ there is no hope in this/ revoke your blessing/ the sickness to ruminate/ let the gods die in this/ in your march/ upon this earth/ we will not be reduced to slaves/ through the violence/ of a tyrant belief/ waves of trance/ waves of death/ rise above the oceans/ reach out for your heavens/ transcend the ruins/ become a godless man// breaching forth through barren lands/ howling are the waves of trance/ these are the moments/ where death is most alive/ there is no meaning/ in this discordant dance/ long live the waves of trance/ so others can live// devote your system/ messengers of the devoid/ there is no hope in this/ collisions imminent/ dreaming in reverse/ there is no light in this/ rise above the oceans/ reach out for your heavens/ transcend the ruins/ become a godless man// breaching forth through barren lands/ howling are the waves of trance/ these are the moments/ where death is most alive/ there is no meaning/ the march/ for the constant throne
Faith Eater
Say no/ I say no/ I say no/ there is no god/ I say slay/ I say slay/ I say slay/ no one will be saved/ I’ve seen my mother die/ like fossils in earth/ it took my breath away/ I am the forest in which I hide/ when death comes we have no say/ consuming darkness/ absence of clock work/ faith eater/ leaving dismembered hearts// I am content with this great collapse/ black holes and the maelstrom/ I have reached beyond the waters/ finding an inner absolution/ I am/ star gazing/ at the edge of the earth/ I am/ northbound/ once again/ I have seen there is no god/ like brothers in arms/ a cult of none/ I am the light in which it hides/ and all-devouring sun and sky/ I// I’ve seen my Gaia die/ like structures in earth/ it stole my heart away/ I am the forest in which I hide/ when fire comes we have no say// I am content with this great collapse/ black holes and the maelstrom/ I have reached beyond the waters/ finding an inner absolution
Hesperian
I’ve felt the weight of the heavens/ I’ve given in the persistence of time/ I’ve seen the daughters of the night/ I’ve reached the outer edge/ witnessing this immortality/ golden apples for me to embrace/ to possess mortal life is to face indigenous ends/ through Hesperian death gardens/ I’ve walked with ominous steps/ transcending their sounds and somber air/ there is a death in the light/ beyond this bright dismal abyss/ and there I lay it all to rest/ for I have felt the weight of the world/ the splendor of translucent verve/ I’ve gazed deep into the forest body// I faced my certain death/ a singularity of aftermath/ destitute of compassion/ traded for Hesperian years// in this life there is nothing more to outlast/ to become one with the gods is to serve without a quest/ I have witnessed it
Sun Grave
Alas/ this is the emperor/ to set this world on fire/ alas/ this is my hell/ relived through time and nightmare/ raise the fire/ higher and higher/ there is no point in pulling hearts like teeth/ revolt of hearts/ regeneration of life/ reach out for the snake/ my freedom comes from the inside/ revived through the darkness/ save yourself the distance/ I’ve reached the esoteric end/ I become the distance// I am aphelion/ this is my sun grave/ do not rest your tired arms/ infinity is but a mere instant/ alas/ this is my hell/ set this world on fire/ save no lives/ for the harvest/ again we rise/ save no lies/ sun grave/ boundless one/ reaching for/ death is here/ o’ how the roots/ reach up from the ground/ there is no hindrance/ before intent/ wishing upon this/ keeper of the end// I am aphelion/ this is my sun grave/ do not rest your tired arms/ infinity is but a mere instant// let your souls collide/ and breathe new fire/ this is the end/ this is my hell
