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

Alien Utopia 04:33
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

The Sorcerer 07:43
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

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

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
