Track Name: The Twisted Chords
Dawn of a brighter age,
Lies dissolve, solvents of life,
Whispers echo,
Remissive patterns, immersed in sin.
Vibrating conscious,
Thoughts align,
Entities,
Entities collide!

*
Senses ignite,
Deeper within.

Follow the light,
Thoughts collide!

*
The twisted chords decrease,
A maze of lucidity,
Answers so clear,
Skin so tight,
Immersed in knowledge,
Immersed in light,
Entities,
Entities collide!

*
Senses ignite,
Deeper within.

Immersed in light,
Thoughts align!

**
Ominous specter,
Last pariah.
Plunder the soul,
Perpetuate sight.

As time unfolds,
I travel….. deeper,
Searching the nether,
for thoughts….. sublime.

**
Crossing into the nether,
Searching……uncertainty.
Underlie, unite and direct.

A multidimensional search for the self,
Manifest your forgotten truth.

**
Ominous specter,
Last pariah,
Plunder the soul,
Perpetuate sight.

*
Tread….
Waters….
Unknown!

Per….
spectives….
Unfold!
Track Name: Ethereal Permanence, Irisdescent Energy
Knowledge,
Comes hurtling from a void.
Abysmal,
Like the blackest of ebony
*
Dispel the declaration,
Of our odious malcontent.
Sever the ties,
Sever all ties!
*
Existing outside of time,
as an observer to our ends and beginnings
We are all spirited,
but lack agency.

We trust in few,
and so will be our undoing.

Admirably seeped,
in lies and inclinations,

**
Becoming,
a law unto myself,
Shedding my recalcitrant, view of ascension.
Steadfast and hold, on the path of the Shaman.
Tooth and nail,
dragging myself,
from the mire below.
**
Dispel the declaration,
Of our odious malcontent.
Sever the ties,
Sever all ties!
*
Sever the ties,
that bind us to, transient forms.
I am the lattice,
I am pure energy,
I am the answer!
Track Name: Voynich
From a deep dream,
I awake and swear.
The world is deeper
than I'd been aware.

Ideals,
lost in translation,
then written in stone,

Why do so many wander?
while threading the path they so foolishly fear.
when will we learn

our persistence to fail,
will never quench our thirst.


**

We've crushed the scarab,
Of whom the Earth is weary.
The complacency of the penitent,
Fetters self mastery.

**
Resounding
in our very fibre,
The eighteen keys.
Cleansed and resolved,
The spirit grows strong.
Take what you've learned,
and live through us all.

For years,
Our hearts were in search of the grail.
For years,
We were born
with a snake in the iris.

**

Breathe, coil, thrice and half,
For years our hearts were in search of the grail.
Breathe, coil, thrice and half,
For years we were born with a snake in the iris.
Breathe, coil, thrice and half,
Call yourself into being.
Breathe, coil thrice and half
My path is written in the stars

We were born,
with a snake in the iris.
We'll die with Utopia in sight.
*
Now to ebb this great flood,
I retain the six motions,
Partake deviations,
and split,
Ouroboros!
Track Name: No Gods, No Masters
Ours is not a monument,
to listless inaction.
Before no doctrine,
humanity kneels.
I am no man’s slave,
Athena watch barriers.
They smoulder,
in our hands.
 *
We cannot live our lives,
in this world of lost moments,
Our reality is one we fashion ourselves.
*
To take grip,
on what barely eludes us,
brings us closer to God.
 *
Gifting ourselves,
the sacrosanct knowledge,
amplifies,
our hold and autonomy.
we create
in our own image.
The apex of subversion
** 

Life and Death,
lose all meaning,
amidst….the waves of chaos.

Gods we became,
from men we had risen.
Incomplete….we vaulted skyward.

** 
Ignorance was bliss,
contradictions forgotten.
Now our shell lies behind us;
…..burnt to a crisp.
*
Life and Death,
lose all meaning,
amidst….the waves of chaos.

Gods we became,
from men we had risen.
Incomplete….we vaulted skyward.


*
No Gods, No Masters,
like Icarus,
We scorched our wings.

No Gods,
No Masters!
Track Name: Celestial Descent I Acute Oscillation
Loosen your grip,
Floating…
A constant vibration,
it's holding us all.

Unspoken words,
Marred with contempt,

Celestial Descent!

Steps taken with doubt,
may yield many fruits.
Unspoiled and bequest,
take all that you need.

Embrace your esteem,
to bolster the soul.

too long in the cold.


**

Celestial Descent,
Revealing the minds true intent.

Digging deeper,
Golden dreams,
Internal vision,
Self esteem.

Celestial Descent,
in rivers of doubt we invest

Digging deeper,
Broken dreams,
Internal vision,
Self esteem.

*
Relish the empathy,
that speaks from within.
In the land of the charlatans,
lies seem benign.


Steady the tremor,
Take hold of what's yours.
Unspoken words,
marred with content.

Celestial Descent

Celestial Descent,
Revealing the minds true intent.

Digging deeper,
Golden dreams,
Internal vision,
Self esteem.

Celestial Descent,
in rivers of doubt we invest

Digging deeper,
Broken dreams,
Internal vision,
Self esteem.

This is retractable;
a man chooses,
a slave obeys.


Become the Monarch
Revere Eris.

A MAN CHOOSES,
A SLAVE OBEYS!
Track Name: Celestial Descent II Habitual Doctrine
Buried within your own assumptions,
Life was never a straight road.

Submit to yourself,
The weight has almost lifted.

A spark so familiar,
that once seemed so lost,

ignites and enthralls,
you are but a host.

**
When the shell cracks,
and the sun seeks the shore
When mountains move,
and the air swirls with fire.

Lacerating terror, consumed with defeat. 
Revere the skeletal harness
as it
becomes a weapon. 
Absorb your minutes,
the hours,
the epoch. tied to the heels of fate.
*
Wading through water,
muscles they ache.

The suns warmth,
it cleanses my doubts,
just as life feeds life,
the sun always reaches the shore.


Drag yourself from the deepest hole,
Depleting time, yet carved in stone

Abolish,
Remove and dethrone.
