Track Name: Iconoclast
Forced to drown in hallowed water.
Violent astral homicide.
Dredged celestial from the flame.
Subtle as a swarm of locusts.
Christ the burning sacrament
Torn through ravaged filaments.
Tan the flesh of god.
Track Name: Xenograft
Cling to life upon three nails
as a pig upon a cross.
Shed the skin
you used to wear.
Reject a master.
Cycle of divine cessation.
We are born to rot.
Track Name: Cris de Haine
Life devoted to shattering the cause.
Curdling blood, fist fucking chaos.
Disembowel the shitchrist paradox
The death of the gods.
Mutilated right hand path.
This is where I fold.
Locked inside an open mind
Show me where you’ve drawn the line,
and I'll cross it you fucking bastards.
Ignite the void, corrode the swollen cross
Track Name: Slitherfilth (Pigfuck)
Splattered napalm
fiscal existencia.
Fuck aspersion into fact.
Pollutant servants of false prophets,
slither like the motherfucking worms you are.
Track Name: Mantra
to death’s design
human condition
in 14 lines
You don’t care
I’ve wasted time.
wasting time.
wasted breath.
wasting waste.
wasted death.

Stranger to myself
hatred for what was
every breath
gave my life away
wealth I’ll never see.
false eternity.
Track Name: Tantra
Cancerous fears of death.
Barren desert patricide.
Violent as a cornered dog.
Tie me up to four
white horses.
Weakness settled in
To these bones again
Face torn sallow grin
Man suit
Flesh cage
Blind faith
Blind death
Tell me what becomes of us
Tell me is this love
Or is this just you feeding?
We never mattered, we never will.
Accept the life you live,
you’re living a lie.
