Track Name: Rotting On the Inside (Feat. Ryan Knight & Ray Jimenez)
Vrs. 1-
A rap on the door disturbed me so
Beset at my feet was death
The wretched, putrid, pungent stench
Oh, the beauty a carcass had sown
For then the mortals never knew
How angels and demons would commune

Pre Ch.-
I dawn this dreadful mask
And my heart, it melts away
I say rest your weary head, my friend
Let your soul through these open wounds drain...

Chorus-
"Rotting on the inside, I just want to die
Burn in Hell or roam endlessly
There is nothing here for me"

Echo-
(There is nothing)

Vrs. 2-
I let the Devil guide my hands
As I sever the veins so black

Echo-
(So black)

Embedded deep beneath cold skin
Lies the secret to the life of the dead
Trapped inside, he can't escape
But stares as the candle light fades

Post Vrs.
"We will feast as one"

Vox Only for Pause-
For the flesh is the beginning...

Chorus-
"Rotting on the inside, I just want to die
Burn in Hell or roam endlessly
There is nothing here for me"

Echo-
(Eternally nothing)

Bridge-
This worthless, dismal day
Is the sum of his life
Carved into the slab on which he lay

Outro-
Stripped of his name
For this man is unclean
Bereaved the grave
For his soul is unworthy

Echo-
(For his soul is unworthy)
Track Name: Infect by Nature (Feat. Alex Lacy & Ray Jimenez)
Vrs. 1-
At the first sign of me, it's plain to see
The darkness of the human condition
I'll tie the noose but let you decide
To walk the gallows high

King of disease
Rider of despair
Bastard of the human race
Born to no avail

Pre Ch.-
Break my chains
It's in your nature to desire a life so free
Brave the waves
Of this hate-filled sea

Chorus-
Virus of life
The weight you will hold until the end of days
Morality denied
To this you are a slave
I will break you
And you will kneel to me
I am the one you know
As the plague to be

Pre Vrs.-
Suffering internally
Die from the inside out

Vrs. 2-
The instinct of man would coax him to fight
But the war is won
Engineered in perfection
To leave nothing left alive

Repulsive are my intentions
For this ill-fated race
Hollow to my rotten core
I yearn to embody Death's gaze

Pre Ch.-
Break my chains
It's in your nature to desire a life so free
Brave the waves
Of this hate-filled sea

Chorus-
Virus of life
The weight you will hold until the end of days
Morality denied
To this you are a slave
I will break you
And you will kneel to me
I am the one you know
As the plague to be

Bridge-
This life is a lie
There is no salvation
Track Name: Insangoma (Feat. Francesco Artusato & Ray Jimenez)
Vrs. 1-
Healer they call me, the plebeian fools
My heart is in love with the flask
I'll bide my time with the dying I prize
Ensuring their carrion lasts

Pre Ch.-
I am aroused by the the curious smell of rot
When you are near, my thoughts they are clear
To my heart you are not just a thought

Chorus-
Painting the picture of life
With ink on a canvas black
Insane, indeed
But it's clarity you need
So bathe in the blood of the rats
Raising a glass to you
This is my only honor true
Meat and bone have no undertones
No reason to think this through

Vrs. 2-
I gather my tools
To splay, carve, main, and dissect
I harvest their lives in jars
The finest of man-made arts

Post Vrs.-
Raped by flames
Their bodies are cast away
A Ritual offering, burning of flesh
A totem to the lord, Baphomet

Chorus-
Painting the picture of life
With ink on a canvas black
Insane, indeed
But it's clarity you need
So bathe in the blood of the rats
Raising a glass to you
This is my only honor true
Meat and bone have no undertones
No reason to think this through

Bridge-
The malice in what was my heart
Is perched up on a throne
Lighting the path less taken
Down this road I must go
Track Name: Hex of Departure (Feat. Per Nilsson & Ray Jimenez)
Vrs. 1-
Prepare for judgement
When the heart is gone and the body dies
The underworld atonement
Not for mortal eyes

Demon whores and wandering souls
Hex of pestilence
Bartering, piece by piece
What makes you whole

Pre Ch.-
The pulse still strong
And with nothing left
No blood to flow
Why won't you rest?

Chorus-
"Cursed I am to consciousness
No eyes to see, no voice to plead
For mercy I can't insist
No explanation
No divination
Hex of departure
Trappings of a martyr"

Vrs. 2-
The impossibilities
Are few to none
But the deceased
Are not predictable like the sun

Post Vrs.-
I am the lord of death
But fail to reap this man
Track Name: Paradise Lie (Feat. Emil Werstler & Ray Jimenez)
Vrs. -
Deceitful were the testaments of holy men
Forever etched into time
False prophecy is blatant blasphemy
On whom does the blame fall?
The Devil laughs as I swallow these words

Pre Ch. -
Would you pity me, or is mercy only for the righteous?
Will I take the fall, or is Death inside us all?

Chorus -
Dreaming of Heaven and streets of gold
I lie to myself
To ebb the pitiful fear
Of simply losing all I hold most dear
What I truly know is real
Is the emptiness I can feel
(Listlessness)
Inside, I am alone

Echo -
(Alone)

Post Ch. -
I can find no peace
So burn this corpse and toss the ashes six feet deep

Chorus -
Dreaming of Heaven and streets of gold
I lie to myself
To ebb the pitiful fear
Of simply losing all I hold most dear
What I truly know is real
Is the emptiness I can feel
(Hopelessness)
Inside, I am alone

Echo-
(Inside, I am alone)

I long for eternity
Yet I become so lost
For there is nothing beyond this life
