Track Name: Where Hope Goes To Die
When I ceased to exist I awoke in a light
From which nothing could shield my eyes
Barely in the glow could I discern his voice

"Approach and learn of the truth."

With the remnants of energy I had left, I summoned my strength
Weary and unfamiliar, I managed to converge upon the source

In blink of an eye, the light died
With a roar, there, standing before me

Towering embodiment fabricated from humankind's atrocities
The culmination of the darkest insecurities manifest before me
Monumental despair and unfulfilled potential
What wicked acts are so deserving of such an abomination?

Everything that we have become
Has lead us to this
All of the beauty that has come undone
Relinquished to us a monolith built of our faults

When we all at last succumb, will we look back and feel pride?
With every transgression we attain, do we see we have been vilified?
Before me stands the coalescence of malignancy
So why is there no reasoning for this monstrosity?

I reflect upon it...

To no avail I try to justify why it might remain
Overwhelming human suffering terminates in this event
Swelling with regret as the reality decays into insane
Seconds are hours and hours lifetimes suspended in horror for me to lament

Hearts of stone, pathetic and all alone
Is this what we desire for our kind?
Should we atone, for these seeds we've sown
A chance to mend, remember these fates are intertwined

I awoke standing at the edge of the abyss
I awoke with a desire to leap

"Approach and learn of the truth."

I awoke with a heavy heart, steeped in grief
I awoke with a ragged sigh and without hope
I awoke with heartache and disbelief
I awoke with remorse, a newborn misanthrope

I awoke and wished I had not...

"Approach me to learn of the truth."
Track Name: The Resurrectionist
Even upon my death, I know I will stir anew
Though momentarily destroyed, my presence will not dissolve
Seemingly gone, I perpetually continue
Reborn again and again, each time with greater resolve

If I die, I know I shall awake
Unaffected and indifferent
With no fear of mortality
I am the resurrectionist

Upon death, I will always reanimate
In my form lies untold powers
With no fear of mortality
I am the resurrectionist

With my collective knowledge I become
Stronger and smarter, with every obstruction
Against all obstacles I will overcome
Return from nothing witness my reconstruction

Steadfast I arise enraged
Through all trials I am unchanged
Emerging from my corpse vacant
A true blessing to be reawakened

If I die, I know I shall awake
Unaffected and indifferent
With no fear of mortality
I am the resurrectionist

Upon death, I will always reanimate
In my form lies untold powers
With no fear of mortality
I am the resurrectionist

I am the resurrectionist

If I die, I know I shall awake
Unaffected and indifferent
With no fear of mortality
I am the resurrectionist

Upon death, I will always reanimate
In my form lies untold powers
With no fear of mortality
I am the resurrectionist
Track Name: Parallel Planes of Tormented Existence
Pensive festering, incapable
Wandering without purpose

Visions of misery, I'm locked in its grip
No exits, developed permanence

Inheriting the pain, I'm lost I'm lost I'm lost
I wish not to be found

By what creatures lair I may invade
Why with what fortune and curses I consume
Spiritual hex as the portent of my sentence
Spiritual hex as the portent of my sentence

Of all of my worlds knowledge
Passages and instinct of shadows
I find nowhere to cower

Weeping, insidious

Now with my frail hands I claw at the soil
Bloodied fingers serve no delay
No understanding of my own intentions

Something hums below me
A beckoning
Home

With every heaving pulse of the world
A sighting of the ominous cloaked smog
A shepard, coalesced ruination infinite
A shepard, coalesced ruination infinite

My skies guide without direction
The venom palpable on my tongue
Comprehension is impossible

Why me?

Parallel planes, rapturous duality
A wilting garden exception to verity

Lone thoughts
Weigh down
Endless
No hope

Final
Breath flows
Now I
Pass on
