Track Name: Aeon Illuminate
Sovereign and subtle sources of souls
Planets mightily merge in one vacuity
A distant dream from afar arises, arises by the sea

Untouched by immense unlight to be
Life flows across in aeons of human self-conceit

Call me the devil, call to arms darkest one
To be your voice in the dark
Call me your horror, call me to crave
when your heaven is torn apart

Untouched but seen by those yet unseen
Light flows across for aeons in spectral self-conceit

Call me the devil, call me the flame, call me when your heaven is torn apart

Oh blackest aeon – evaluated force
Holy mother, dreadful creature – be the reason for all cause
Sing for me rightful father – marrow of the soul
Sacred seal of iniquity open up, open up thy womb

Severed souls, take me to the netherworld
where sacred souls take you down inside
This blood guilt incurred by communion
casts down the flame of hate to one

Untouched by immense unlight to be
Life flows across in aeons of shallow hearted self-conceit

I see you burn in rousing fire

What came from the water must be drowned in the sea
Track Name: Alien Utopia
Old sweet years of old
Nature, seek perfection
Inhale dread and fear
to protect this false perception

Camouflaged in faith
- mindless, soulless, impertinent -
the scorn of truth lies
at his hand

Culture Cleansing Machine
Points at me with rogue daggers
wretched means of sheer accuracy
Umber harvest of hate

Ideas to be
and ideals of moral
undermine idiocy
like marbles clog a rifle barrel

For the rule of one
squalling into mass deception
where blind leads blind
one-eyed kings demand control

Culture Cleansing Machine
Points at me with rogue daggers
wretched means of sheer accuracy
Umber harvest of hate

Beyond that portal you'll reach
the endless, bodiless imperfection
Write your own decree
you'll be able to measure all you wish to believe
by abandoning this self-deceit
Track Name: The Sorcerer
I – I am light and disorder
I have come to seek control of the sun
To be the one, be the great preserver
last call becoming second to none

Envy youth for I am immortal
Heavens carry my soul in their sleeves

Bright light binds profane possession
bright eyes level blind obedience
I have been (into) a black dream
I've seen through the eyes of a king
A fading thesis your sunken prophet pleases

Envy youth for I am immortal
Heavens carry my mind in their wake

Worship though and meaning
In heaven your guard is feeding
- “Father, I died for you” -
ironic laughter

Murder wreaks havoc and redemption until my soul bleeds
Ideals to me, unseen until my soul is redeemed

Sorcerer of death's construction
Raveling into the symptoms you despise
A symphony of symmetric agony
Mother to the symptoms of our life's demise

Sorcerer of death's construction
Track Name: Solar Fire Cells
Step through the stars and stare into your dreams
Slip into the sun and starve into mortality

Lock down the one perception of creed
The stars' shining duration a single soul exceeds

Step through the stars, step through the gate
Step into the sun and kiss your god awake
Step through the stars and stare into your dreams
Through the sun, into infinity

Lock down the one duration of oscillation
Read burning fire as you grow higher
Become solar cell fire


Step through the stars and stare into your dreams
Slip into the sun and starve into you
Track Name: The Voyager
Instrumental
Track Name: The Radial Covenant I. II.
I.
From now and beyond
beyond this world, beyond the sun
One soul shall become
the magma of radial dust

By leaps of time steep unsound
a dimension opens up and closes down
beyond this world, beyond the sun
(lies) our bodies' overflow
multidimensional

Truth lies behind the portal of three
Cast down your mortal being,
become the all and everything

Slice time like spirals
Taste the lips of immortality
Become spectral beings
become the all and everything

By leaps of time steep unsound
temporary monuments held unbound

Create a universe abysmal and wide
with no such place like heaven in sight
Create a universe abysmal and wide
with no such place like heaven in sight

Slice time like spirals
transform in all eternity
Embrace this alien euphony

For time is non-linear
and death is merely a portal
the end means just revival of it all

For I am the masked messiah
spiral dust and black light conspire
once I fall through the sea of lies
my soul shall arise from eternal hellfire

Drowned by quantum gravity
Reborn a soulful entity
originates


II.

Fresh from the origin it elevates
sent by the oceans of time
Like a harlot's disappearing
rapid, unconscious - human kind

High and higher
Fly above us
Seed hope like orchids
on a grave

By reversing all physics
This grain of a soul is sent back into you

Back through the portal of three
you give birth to a new entity

My soul is a naked figure of old
but my mind's eyes revolt

From now and beyond
beyond this world, beyond the sun
One soul shall become
the magma of our life's reward

Devise a life abysmal and wide
Create your heaven deep inside
Devise a life abysmal and wide
with no such place like hell in sight
