LYRICS to

 

I.O.D.

instrumental

 

Blindfolded

it is immortal with uncanny will

it will be leading the merciless kill

once again it strikes arms and grief will grow

history tells us all we need to know

the relentless lies penetrates them all

glory can't be found

The nation will fall

 

it is immortal with uncanny will

it will be leading the merciless kill

 

the sins will be committed hiding behind a lie

by distorted sight the different must die

 

a continent got torn

a nation with sick dreams

the incubus is born

the malaise tears up the seams

 

the hatred was the same

people throe and they pang

the slough of despond came

the demon is showing his fangs

 

there are corpses and destruction all around

prejudice and fanatics to be found

atrocity has come to reign with pain

they march in pride by this deranged campaign

in self-righteousness deluded with hate

changing the world and forever its fate

 

it is immortal with uncanny will

it will be leading the merciless kill

took what they believed belonged to their domain

never mind whose there spreading fear and pain

crumbled in the dust beauty from the past

can't be found again demolished and trashed

 

it is immortal with uncanny will

it will be leading the merciless kill

 

The Devour

started with miscalculation

stick to rage for your salvation

how will you get on your feet

you're too involved in deceit

watch you die in your own spells

return the devour to where it dwells

 

can't you see your life's at stake

when will you realize your own mistake

 

feel the pain when it returns

strip your soul your inside burns

desolate your own mind screams

wasted life and no more dreams

every attempts bound to fail

try to avoid the treacherous trail

 

another day in a living hell

return the devour to where it dwells

can you free yourself of this curse

no remedy it must reverse

 

understand the end is near

blinded by the reign of fear

sell your life for the next day

the last resort is to pray

doomed to eternal damnation

just another failed expectation

 

can't you see your life's at stake

when will you realize your own mistake

 

another day in a living hell

return the devour to where it dwells

can you free yourself of this curse

no remedy it must reverse

 

Entombed

violating the old rules

strangers to this land

the creatures fall at this hand

severed bones and limbs taken

by superstition and greed

beauty destroyed by this deed

 

cynical annihilation of all the creations

not a chance for evasions

unnecessary killing

scintillating in their rooms

the species we will entomb

 

the balance interrupted

recalling the archaic time

museum piece enshrouded

hear the death bells chime

senseless eradication

they must be killed and sold

extinction of life

tales that must be told

pernicious interference

egoistic belief

proliferation of grief

in concordant harmony

destroyed by the human pest

implant the infectious nest

 

The Envoy of Sophistry

perpetual absurdity

festered by incredulity

unreasonable and closed minded

resolutions uninvited

thrive on inert disputation

revel in equivocation

reverberate the futile task

to discard the trothless mask

 

tantalized impetuous and tense

dereliction of benevolence

the omission of faith and facts

validity of everyday acts

 

the envoy of sophistry

 

dwelling in disappointment

and restrained by bewilderment

misinterpret sum and substance

progressing the mind's impotence

 

the envoy of sophistry

 

probing the anesthetic insight

respite to resolve or recite

committed into transgressions

no time for lasting impressions

never to achieve fruition

and transcend the limitation

a journey through a narrow path

to amplify anger and wrath

 

Quintet of Spheres

Sphere 1 : Preclusion by Naivete

in its belief of its supremacy

shattered domain of its naivete

lazy and full 'til the reign got corrupted

surprised its existence interrupted

astonished by the disclosure detected

in this sad conference it sits in imprudence

confrontation it detests naivete laid to rest

in a millennium broken continuum

knowledge broke the line its existence divine

 

Sphere 2: Tool of Nihilism

tearing carnage

massacre done

thriving scourge

nihilism won

regaling itself

on death by its hand

destruction of life

keeps it in command

abrogate life

bludgeon the weak

nihilistic pawn

dragoon the meek

dictator enforce

paramount of hate

obey to his whim

and subordinate

Sphere 3: Phlegmatic Perception

white walls surround the entity

mirror its stolidity

stale amiss the indolence

its voice cries in dissonance

phlegmatic perception

slothful reaction

laziness prevail

ignorant and stale

caved in by misanthropy

traveling through apathy

fool of the turmoil

antithesis of foil

only to bereave

talent to perceive

confronted by fear

for the end is near

its farce concluded

its reign deluded

Sphere 4: Defer to Despair

institute unimportance

effluence of dejection

disdained in depression

accentuate negation

trembling shake in its angst

reflecting travesty

in its timid existence

quail in its servility

Sphere 5: Paradox of Sanity

raving in its frenzy

delirium run amuck

paradox of sanity

severe trauma and shock

jolt in maelstrom of conflict

perceptive disturbance

afflicted agitation

phrenetic lunacy

antagonized fatuous mind

distorted perception

relinquish sobriety

perverse contemplations

Epitaph: Five Entities Unified

as they come to realize

when their spheres merge into one

their credence is their demise

dissension has just begun

belief of narcissism

confronted discernment

by their fanaticism

union rendered atonement

communion solidified

eternally unified

 

It's About Hypocrites

the grimaces of surprise

turn around no mass no size

mechanical entity

conscience with no gravity

idealism of youth

vanished along wit the truth

the message they don't believe

subconsciously they deceive

abhor the changing of time

a government in decline

habitant in a void space

hypocrites reside in this place

 

it is all about the hypocrites

who mock with our intelligence

the double morals become the norm

not telling the truth propaganda

they have forgotten the real reasons

the seats they uphold twisting the form

 

the traitors and the thieves immune to the law

bureaucracy and bigotry that won't thaw

interest shifted away from the objective

vanished enthusiasm and incentive

mandatory involvement

in the game they repent

exercise their wrongful force

their power we must divorce

it's all about hypocrites

whose lies and deceit won't quit

impudent glow from the screen

the joker jests in this scene

send a defiled delegate

so their lies will propagate

the grimaces of surprise

turn around no mass no size

 

it is all about the hypocrites

who mock with our intelligence

the double morals become the norm

not telling the truth propaganda

they have forgotten the real reasons

the seats they uphold twisting the form

 

Hibernate

defective machine dictating inane

for all its intent the crisis remain

not to read and write

a disease we must fight

incarcerated by no insight

impervious to the lasting effect

which carries through life

as a strong defect

not to read and write

a disease we must fight

incarcerated by no insight

because of this fallacy

unaware of an event

imposing this malady

inveigled by false intent

delete the education

culminate in ignorance

knowledge in hibernation

wait to have deliverance

words spoken but not read

how can we escape this dread

no one reads no one writes

must secure our birth rights

the power inside subject to arise

in hibernation waiting to devise

not to read and write

a disease we must fight

incarcerated by no insight

incapable of literacy

awareness has been reduced

by their inadequacy

lunacy has been induced

 

Dejected Spirits

instrumental

 

Unleashed Power

here is gloomy dark and cold

the terror has been unfold

destructive power will erupt

this madness has to be stopped

 

unleashed power is released

it's making this world diseased

polluted landscape is devoid

too much of nature is exploit

 

when will they deliberate

see the growth that suffocate

look what's going on around

are there graces to be found

 

unleashed power is released

it's making this world diseased

polluted landscape is devoid

too much of nature is exploit

 

the fire sweeps over the plain

what are we going to obtain

how long can the balance last

the obstacle is too vast

 

unleashed power is released

it's making this world diseased

polluted landscape is devoid

too much of nature is exploit
