Track Name: Misanthropic Emancipation
A depressing vision

Barren fields
As far as the eye reaches
Blackened cold earth
A lifeless globe

Awakening
Bathed in sweat
Nightmares describe a
Cancerous humanity

Misanthropy dawns
A reawakened man

Misanthropic emancipation

Free to end what must end
Free to extinguish
Life of the servant race
Free to save one self
From the kindred plague

Dreams reemerge
Visions now lush
A paradise without
The putrid scent of man
Track Name: In Soullessness - Supremacy
Risen from the muck of darker ages

elevated to planes beyond
with audacious hands we erected
the gallow our race is dangling from

the wasteland of post-human dominance
stretching as far as improved eyes gander

Enabled to thrive on digital matter
the scorched earth we stood on
sacrificed for our gains
This was what we decided to seek
seperation from simple non-synthetic meat

Our enhanced bodies - soulless
our disengaged primary organ
a cold heart - unbeating

was it
worth it?

dominating all living life
Crops we depended upon
taking unneeded space

undermining
eventual eradication
a dead planet we control
Track Name: The Mask of Anatomy
What could be
Behind
seemingly well intentions

The human conceptions
Ignorant
The imagination
Tears at the sane position

Skin, limbs
entire body
could bear no reflection
Surface undisturbed
utter chaos beneath

The mask of anatomy

Disguise
The physical being
Clouded vision
unknown intentions

Paranoia
No judgement
Predetermined
No Intent

The mask of anatomy
Fumbling in blindness
Senses unapted
Rouge imagination

Isolated mind
non-communicating
Paralyzing dread
mental weakness
Track Name: Endless Abjure
Our
Unguided path has left us
a blazing path behind
the seed of our demise
lovingly nurtured
Dread plants
grow in our minds

Spawned
By devoted ignorance
A divine plan
must exist
Crumbling planet
a test
A divine plan
must exist

Undependaple
Unanswering
Nonexistent

Facts are ignored - Heresy
Endless Abjure - Deceptive throne

Higher powers, guide our path
holiness ensuring our demise

Discarding
Evidence - blasphemy
Ungodly knowledge
of nothing
No salvation
await those
those who try
try to change our fate
Track Name: The Horrid Reflection
Beholding the human race
Infinite weakness
Flawed to the core

Inherent despair
Ingrained delirium

Dismiss my kin
Hated spawn - In them

My own flaws lie
The horrid reflection
of my own failure

Horrid reflection of me
People I walk amongst
Horrid reflection of the I
I carry

Realisation
The hated ones
A reflection
of the self

Futile hate of a species
The skin on the flesh
Futile hate of this
mirror image

Horrid reflection
despicable mirror
Horrid realisation
I am human

Horrid reflection of me
People I walk amongst
Horrid reflection of the I
I carry
Track Name: Abhorred Veracity
In a time of strife and ignorance
Beliefs were established
In a time where truth was intangible
doubts needed answers

phenomena
seeming
unexplained
a herd for the masses created was
the notion of a higher being

Wars were waged
in the name of the created being

Before enlightenment dawns
We've started
Falling for our own deception

To this day
Ignorance roams
Truth is contested
on the terms

of lies that decieve
only the deceived
Renouncing
challenging concepts
of scientific method

Abhorred
Veracity
Truth I do not understand

When will
it end
lies that halt our progress
when will
they turn and see
Track Name: Vengeance
You who’ve betrayed my trust
Dismantled my idea of mutual support
Dismal rage
Conceptual anger
Your deeds must be returned

My
Vision blurred as I grab
At
The thing I don’t recognize

Punishing with empowering hate

Fingers clenched around throat
Disfigured face
Continuous violence
Broken legs
Knives in abdomen
A final terminal breath

Vision clears – bloodied hands
A beloved corpse mourned
Realization of temporal insanity

Vision is dim as before
Not blurred, but painfully clear
Life ends as
The light fades

A dark philosophy forms
Insignificance dawns upon you
Your inner self shattered

In the face of nothingness

My vengeance is done
Unexpected outcome
Enlightenment is reached
Track Name: Despair
The deed is done
lifeless at my feet
she lay
gutted and gone
consequences upon me

Enslaved by a dysfunctional system
I despair
false accusations
sterile murder
I refute
the fate they pick

cold calculation

Decide
My of fate
Refute
Civil ways

In solitary I shall plan their downfall
wretched human race's
death

I prosper alone
recollecting myself
My despair
reversed to theirs
Now I've redefined
My existence

Introversion
Into deep
nothingness
here I'll recide
Forever

Nothingness
Forever
Track Name: Sovereign
... And now
Ready I stand
Plans
Finalized

Death - of many to come
My - Ideas are unfolding

As the first victim chokes a dying breath
and fear spreads throughout the system
I laugh as I see the coverage
how it's only amplifying the bedlam

falling in numbers - from the conditioned air
breathing my hate - exhaling despair

chain reactions of horror
as identical happenings emerge
feelings of safety vanishing
pandemonium is absolute

I can turn my back

I will turn my back

as my plan reaches full fruition
and I stand supremely above
I've reversed the established roles
I turn my back to the world in which I am

Sovereign

... So, now
Ready I am
(to go) further onto my campaign
