Track Name: Transmutation
Traces emanate
encoded within the core.
Abandoned in pursuit of
synthetic aspirations.

A mind renewed
and set still.
Receptive in shape,
archaic at will.

Revised,
it surrenders to no supreme icon
Freed from the confines of a censured regime
I vow to vanquish and bury you thy god
A rasterized image through machine
is not my truth.

My truth is love and suffering by its manifestation.

Wake me up from the kingdoms that you enchant
with promises designed to evoke avarice.
Infinite qualms of wishing that we're enough,
Determining self worth by perceived affluence

What's my soul worth in cold hard cash mother fucker?

What's it worth in cold hard cash?
Track Name: 33 Shades of Black
Chemicals swag on the depths of her scent
In abstract renditions. Black and White.
Bring her sight transcending mine.
Bestow upon her the eyes hell hides behind.

Until the occulted
Turn her head to the center
kindly requesting surrender.

See that these realms we're in but not of.
Those who adhere to reason
bleed the same colors of defeat;
instead, with white knuckled apprehension.

Souls swag on the infernal seams
between fabrics of inertia.

Venus whispers, and winds move slow…
Condensing the signals each time you take control.

Tell me how to feel.

My patience is spent, What happens when
I stop answering these phone calls?

My Intrinsic wars, of desiring more
I cant help but feel this way.

Help me count stars, Ill help hide your scars
concealing your worst mistakes.

You're just playing a cynical part,
Reluctant to start. In status, we are
defined in the utmost regard…

This helps me feel real.

Introspective voids consume my spiritual orientation.
My conceptual spectrum comprises 33 shades of black.

Hear this.

I SWAG ON THE DEEP.
Track Name: Impendingness
The stars align
and light illuminates
The red that shrouds the surface
of worlds we eliminate

With sounds programming
restless cities abstained from self control

When you're afraid, I know
that no hope can replace this.
I'm now resistant, to impendingness
So bleak I can not face it.

The mind subsides
Each cell regenerates
and blossoms before
The heart it recreates.

Visions so lifeless.
Hopeless compromise of our integrity
Disenchants.
Track Name: Revolver
Glamour has been misleading but you knew
That eminence feels lonelier than solitude.
I'm not sure that what this seems to be,
reflects characteristics of what lies beneath.

Why wake up when I'm still playing dead?
My heart's the devils cherished instrument.

Keen Intuition
Heeds human design.
Weapon of the fallen
Vanquish all divine.

Silence so dense it consumes
The howls of walking dead who've become restless.

You're given a choice and you choose wrong
but you never think you could be lost.
Do you believe you're some type of god?

Decades denying is time well spent.
My suffering's real, while you pretend.
Some day your story has to end.
Track Name: Oracular
Gnosis reviled and untold.
Through whisper, symbiotic grimoires restore.
I'm yours, archons of the Earth.

Silver and gold
Labyrinths yonder by mountains of skulls

Bearing riches these corpses once sought
Miasmas of death wont surrender the thought
Nor cease.
Track Name: Artificer
Elicit fractal codes
invoke infernal modalities

Victory or death
succeed or perish

I have all that which once only conceived.
No price tags adorn the light held within me.
Choose your path,
Never let your heart whisper. Never let doubts hold you back.

A light so blinding, no one can see
Materials binding all the conceit
Surrounding you.
Forever in tranquil motion, Forever my reach precedes trend.

Rain fall sheaths, truths so bent...
Rusting thrice and soaking wet
Your palms suggest you'll never forget me.

Gleams permeate the night.
Track Name: You and Me, Luci
Don't you forget
Devotion bleeds red.
My soul is refined...
Violet turns white
and makes me real again.

I want that life,
Standing by your side.
I'm moving way south,
I don't care how, I'm ready now.

Envision me
by you. You'll see,
You're light leaves me Defenseless.
