Track Name: Apotheosis Of The Hangman
Broken and lost are led to execution
Ending over mending, end of you

Lies absorbed by poisoned minds
Condemn the murders while themselves aborted lives
The sifting of the grain provides the purest of the growth
Small imperfections don’t get equal chance to grow
The justice system with foundations long collapsed
So morbid and sublime, corruption redefined
From tree of knowledge self-power is consumed
Constructing moral laws for others keeping self immune

Today I play the role of God
Today I choose who lives and who dies
Wearing black mask I hang the condemned because I’m just as guilty as them

The state punishes its members with prison or death
Upon my enemy I simply imitate the state
Instead of mercy it teaches me how to hate
Oppresses freedom with fear in attempt to dominate

Allegory, the good and the evil, deceiving story
Witness perception brings to knees your defense
As our scapegoat you will be hanged

Heard but cannot hear, seen but cannot see
Track Name: City Of The Silent
I am, I’m here, I did not die
I hear you weeping, I see you cry
Wipe off your tears for I’m not dead
So many things remained unsaid

When the Sun goes down with it the noise
Abandon reason to hear my voice
I am the breeze you feel at night
The intuition when you must decide

I scream and shout, to diminish any doubt
About the city of the silent

In this dimension the time is lost
So is the ego, you are your most
And when the time has come for you
I will be waiting to guide you through
Track Name: Dismembering The Image Of God
Behind barb wire there’s a place of unrest
Children torn from their mother’s, people turned to the living dead
Intellectual minds built machine that grinds flesh
Theory of Eugenics picks the ones who have regressed

Dismembering the image of God

Vivisection nerves alive
Implement of death to test the subject is allowed

Dismembering the image of God

Once sworn to save life now they bring death
Their endless sadistic curiosity is fed
In white masks, optics glare
Human organs tip the scale
In white room, stainless steel
Windows boarded to conceal
Leather straps hold me still
This procedure’s meant to kill
Feel the edge cut through skin
Then the bone of my shin
Legs removed at the hips
Webs of veins, shoulder blades

Irises colored blue, it’s my gift to you

Core of their souls untouched by the pleas
Dismembered stitched bodies of dwarfs and twins
One dissects piece of me
Other writes what he sees
Now awake back in cell
What’s been done I can’t tell
Rotting wound, cast applied
Putrid stench undescribed
Numbing pain, empty stare
Body and mind beyond repair
Life or death
Which is which
Oh dear God end this please

Sewn back up like a rag
Left impaired, for demise I beg
Moans of pain fill the night
Those who lived wished they died

I've seen others just like me
Healthy man now amputees
Some who managed to survive phenol had applied
Mutilated human lives robbed of dreams, robbed of smiles

Lives unworthy of life
Track Name: All Too Human
Projection unreflective of the emptiness inside
Rejection of awareness in pursue of proof of life
Abolished distinction between genuine and fake
Everything’s negotiable to certain extent
Willful delusion in search of abstract freedom
Inherent contradictions, relativism

Bow to the- dictate of opinion
“Free-thinkers” with one-line quotes
Sum up thousands years of reason
Deem primitive mind which paved the road
Useless is the human spirit
Remnant of unenlightened past
See with the eye devoid of conscious
Speaking of color to a man born blind

Human all too human

It’s true that there is no truth here
The proposition unveils the paradox

Reject the old
Yet no replacement
Diminished framework
For experience to be interpreted
Only the self
Lost in desires
No noble cause
Value is conspired

Intoxicating subjective solipsism
Denies capacity of human mind and reason
Nihilistic view deconstructs and skews
The further it gets the more it points to truth

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent
Conditioned open-mindedness breeds masses of the mindless

Reason from unreason
Sensation from lifeless
Logic from illogic
Truth from error
Is claimed
