GATEWAY to DEADLY SINS

I. Avarice

II. Pangs of Envy

III.Paroxysm of Wrath

 

AVARICE - Gateway Part I

Convinced in a creed

It's best to have more

The malicious greed

Lurks behind this door

 

Machining the greed

in material need

 

You materialistic fools

spinning voracious spools

Fill a void with empty toys

Heed upon the avid voice

Within your edacity

we find your voracity

For your tenuous soul

Not to fulfill the whole

 

Incongruous drive

In Covet and take

Leeringly derive

Avaricious rake

 

Machining the greed

in material need

 

PANGS OF ENVY - Gateway Part II

Hunting prey for selfish pleasure

No bounds of lust will measure

 

More than before

Less than ahead

A vacuum that roar

The task that misled

 

Suffer the pangs of envy

The curtain of jealousy

A net that you have made

In moments that quickly fade

 

The sin of the moment can't confine

An emptiness you can't define

 

The jaundiced eye

With selfishness

Love's joy you deny

With bitterness

 

In a copulate nature

The state of carnal feature

What you can't have you'll take

Becomes another mistake

 

PAROXYSM OF WRATH - Gateway Part III

With fury you thrust

and anger to combust

A heart filled with hate

lies beyond the gate

 

Angry and pained

Wrath, he's disdained

 

In your rampant

state of being

Through eyes of rage

repugnant feeling

 

Angry and pained

Wrath, he's disdained

 

In his bitter quests

He loathes and detests

In diffidence

In virulence

With asperity

and hostility

hostility

 

The ferocious scourge with caustic scorn

Apogee reached, enraged and torn

 

In his tenebrous misguided state

Permeate with darkness, thrust forth irate

 

The turpitude of compassion

Rancor permeates in wan fashion

 

To pour the vials of wrath of this age

The paroxysm of towering rage

 

ETUDE

(instrumental)

 

WHAT THEY DON'T KNOW

In disapproval

They turn their back.

In disappointment

they turn to black.

 

Choose not to believe

cowardly they converse

facades that they retrieve

cowardly they disperse

 

Their disagreement

they will inject.

Disentanglement

they will reject.

 

Choose not to believe

cowardly they converse

facades that they retrieve

cowardly they disperse

 

Can they accept

the evident?

Can they appoint

the competent?

 

What they can't show

What they don't know

Where they don't go

What they don't know, know, know, know.....

 

Standing in the faceless crowd

watching with skeptical eyes

the place where one won't flourish

what could fulfill their lives

Brand the stigma of contempt

No one sees the flower die

 

The man will wilt

The man succumbs

The man will die

 

With disengagement

to innovate

With their disablement

free to create

 

Choose not to believe

cowardly they converse

facades that they retrieve

cowardly they disperse

 

 

Mindfailure

Spectator of the matrix in the lens

Hence the view destructive and intense

 

Failure to apprehend

Failure to comprehend

 

A sight not to be seen by mankind

The kind of thing that overpowers the mind

 

Failure to apprehend

Failure to comprehend

 

Mind Failure

Mind Failure

 

Eruptive feelings explode

Logistic measures erode

Aggressive actions taken

A beast that has awaken

 

Who is it I am?

What is it I am?

 

Conflicts surely escalates

With intangible debates

Can't fathom reality

Nor my personality

 

Who is it I am?

What is it I am?

 

With stress building, struck dumbfound

On a verge of a nervous breakdown

 

Failure to apprehend

Failure to comprehend

Fail

 

Thou shalt live

 

Searching deep within your heart

to find some real solutions

From the regrets one must depart

avoiding the disillusions

 

With all the things that will discourage

can one find the power of courage

 

To live with contradictions

yet there will always be hope

for faith will move the mountains

inducing the strength to cope

 

Are you really alive

Do you really live

Can you truly fight it

Where's the will to give

refusing, resisting the fiery temptations

 

Albeit the temptations lure

is the strength to resist so sure

and remaining doubt encroaches

consequently guilt reproaches

 

With all the things that will discourage

can one find the power of courage

 

To live with contradictions

yet there will always be hope

for faith will move the mountains

inducing the strength to cope

 

 

CATACLYSM

Part one: BLACKENED SKIES

 

Brooding from blackened skies

Trickle breaks the silence

Conceal the ominous lies

Billowed from insolence

 

Where rumors engage the storm

And turmoil initiates

The disillusions deform

Until it infiltrates........me

 

PART TWO: IMMINENT STORM

Blustering wind tearing into the eyes

Foreboding of the imminent demise

Whipping the simple into complexity

Reminding me of my incapacity

 

Soughed confusion spreading in my mind

Where are the answers, desires I can't find

 

PART THREE: WHIRLING TO BITS

Fiercely the cyclone hits

Tearing my mind to bits

Don't know what's up or down

Faced with my own showdown

 

Confused and dazed

I'm rattled in this maze

Struggle to keep erect

To maintain self-respect

 

Try to piece it together

I'm trapped in stormy weather

 

Swirling like a ragdoll

Confusion reigns in my skull

 

In my world blown asunder

Feeling my self-esteem go under

 

What is it about

Will I figure it all out?

 

PART FOUR: TORNADO'S PATH

Sheltering from forceful strike

Must obliterate them alike

Psychopathic carnivore

like the tornado's outpour

 

Vexed buildup I can't control

With my truculent death toll

 

PART FIVE: PANTHEON OF DESTRUCTION

Expedite a conflict imminent

To be pantheon prominent

Writhing delusions of grandeur

To a web of volatile blur

 

The road of red cataclysm

With the strength of nihilism

The name of self-preservation

To annihilate deviation

 

All to quench the confusion

That's the key to my delusion

The path taken ambiguously

With broken spirit completely

 

NEFARIOUS

As they migrate to the North

Escape nefarious scorn

Penitent plunging forth

Empty eyes that feel forlorn

 

Nefarious Lurks

 

They wear the burden of grief

The appearance of great loss

This world of crumbled belief

Capitulate their lost cause

 

Nefarious Lurks

 

They weep for their loved ones lost

They contemplate the enormous cost

Malignancy can never cease

Procreate despair as disease

 

As the wicked accrue

to destroy and subdue

For they will aggrieve

to rape them and bereave

 

Evil shroud upon us all

Malice has answered the call

Encase, impose it's decree

Severed the right to be free

 

Gathered to set the plot

to become the next despot

 

Hide, divide, chose your side

with no body to confide

 

Through the shimmering light

they feel their will power bent

No dawn to break the night

in this place belligerent

 

Nefarious Lurks

 

So they were left there disdained

with no one left to be blamed

Fettered in the grip of fear

ascertained, evil is here

Asphyxiate on their loss

Malign spirit sweeps across

forsaken all of their hope

Love and faith, their will to cope

 

SECTION TERMINAL

In control and with force

there can be no remorse

with all the broken connections

and all the distorted reflections

 

No hope in section terminal

 

Look at me here

eyes glazed with fear

they wont contain

bloodthirst and pain

they locked me up saying that I am insane

 

They can't see, what I can see

they can't feel, what I can feel

 

I'm so sure, only I know

it must be, that blood must flow

Lunatic, they all have said

pathetic, they're all misled

 

Diagnosed, as a manic

paranoid, schizophrenic

strapped me down, sedated me

locked me up, stopped my killing spree

 

With the battle at hand

facing the reprimand

but haunting voices are plaguing

in the nights that I am raving

 

No hope in section terminal

 

Look at me here

eyes glazed with fear

they wont contain

bloodthirst and pain

they locked me up saying that I am insane
