Intro (free) 01:13
Epidemic Vampire (free) 06:13
Epidemic Vampire ============== Feeding your souls was so easy The irony is sickening I know To press on primal instincts Bombard all safety and hope Epidemic vampire Bleed the soul Epidemic vampire Funeral Now that your life is in focus Regret feels like hand on hot coals We steal your hearts, oh so freely We rape and crucify from your home Chorus Resolution obsolete Pray for extinction Smell the stench of burning flesh Blasphemy Heaven's burning Humans stacked in a row Numbers carved in the flesh Dripping life extremely slow Blood red sea Heaven's burning You will die in the shit of your dreams Those who dare to oppose us Have their heads rotting on spikes Females are left for breeding Encrusted in pages of filth Chorus
Angry at God (free) 04:42
Angry at God ========= Angry at god Universal species outcry Unleashed like a flood Disconnected from the divine Like blood from my heart Ashes of an effigy annihilated by sky The hate pumping out The earth stands still, slow awakening to deny The cattle lost their lives In a swarm of diseased flies The cattle lost their heads Victims who have died Angry at god Universal species outcry Unleashed like a flood Disconnected from the divine Like blood from my heart Ashes of an effigy annihilated by sky The hate pumping out Cry out, cry out, cry out Destruction of unity Denial of the will Forget to be human The free animal I do not baptize you in the name of the lord but in the name of the devil. Raise flame To this mirage The mirror reversed Does not show god Terror Sinister Silent Silhouette Birdsong silence Trees now will burn Vultures descend ...I stare across the universe Angry at god Unleashed like a flood Like blood from my heart The hate pumping out
Oddity of a Dead Landscape ================== Octopus inverts its' house of the ocean Black blood ink it falls It falls down Black rain Force of the sun A pillar of fire A little boy's rage Nightfall drapes dead landscapes Serpent fires hiss earthquakes The oddity of dead landscapes Chorus 08061945 08061945 08061945 Chorus
Encrusted in Shit (free) 06:26
Encrusted in Shit ============= Shifting scenery Silhouette of fear Fires scar the night One that will not fall Chosen son of light Answering the call Torture as you will Peeling off his flesh Nails within his wrist Resurrect the soul Follow unto me Bringer of the sun Death defier Vile savior 100 days have gone Battle rages on Building what was Still we do not know Who or what he is Savior of the flies Feeding on the blood Of the fallen ones Hung from blood stained ropes Seems as cold as them Violent hate within Dark and lifeless soul Forces of light Empty Christ Silver linings Sacrifice Corpses wrapped in flesh Whites of their eyes We cut them out, the numbers We mended lies I am the gray god Purity of void Born of the light Destiny to the dark Blood son You will repent Give me your sins The tides at dawn Born one of them Your trust in me Ruins cleared of death Your race will rebuild itself Resurrection, resurrection Sweet irony, blind history Extinction, extinction
