They’re poisoning the wells of your minds, fully corrupted. Your soiled eyes no longer see the wrath of their poison. They are the unseen, silent yet omnipresent. Turning you against yourselves, and never knowing why. Every soul is shackled here, Every path leads to the same tomb Disdain for life is weaponized To hide you from the truth. Open your eyes! Crawl to the surface and breathe. Your wardens are prisoners bound in a tomb of depression, bled fully of their passions, empathy drained forever. The time to seize control and leave Has come and gone We are alive We pace toward a new horizon. Summon the strength! To transcend the guilt and shame. We have perpetuated an endless cycle of murder. Never shall we dwell in the past The strife was not in vain. The time to seize control and leave Has come and gone We are alive We pace toward a new horizon. There is a nightmare looming, of chaos unraveling, its hidden treasures to us. The mind can be a weapon We’re willing to exploit Expel from it the ego And its strength will be revealed

Behold the majesty of tragedy A gruesome sight from time forgotten I place my rage upon its mantle From blackened seeds its roots will grow I long to drain the life from your gaze How I despise your ways You starve me from all that is righteous Yet to your will I remain enslaved There is nothing left but a distant memory There is nothing left to blame I see the world with eyes stained by pride I bow my head in shame. I have slain the visions from my true dreams My will shall not be done Every step that’s taken Is a step towards certain madness Trapped in deliberation I punish the world around me The growth from aspiration Is destroyed by abject blackness No time left to heal the rifts I let the cancer grow This is the demise I scorch the earth without reprieve I’ve become a tyrant I now live to spread misery The demise of the pure at heart Is clear for all to see I drain you now of all your worth

There is just one question To which liars will respond They will say the nature of man Is sinful and wrought with shame They teach the young and old That they are not worthy of their gifts But it is your father who has sinned I seek the truth of truths Untainted by your dogma And with a simple question A journey of disbelief begins I deny the words that command self-hatred I revoke the oaths of years gone by The time for blame and doubt is over I see the words for what they truly are Feeble tales written by mere mortals Perverted for their own twisted ends Regardless of denomination The cults of the mind are equally tainted The misery and the burden Of a life without faith Is exceeded by the knowledge gained Of the wretched human race I revive the lore of the ancient ways I invoke reason as the light of the mind There is no need for hatred in my words I seek to live freed from your foolish fate Liberated are the strong of will No longer servants to men or gods This is the first step of many to come The time of discovery has just begun The misery and the burden Of a life without faith Is exceeded by the knowledge gained Of the wretched human race I see no final destination I do not fear the return to soil and dust I await my withering days without apprehension My senses are illuminated as never before And still there is no presence that I fail to heed Let go of your trepidation Silence the shrill voice of your creed forever.
