01. Procession

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Crimson hands cursed and bound
Silence broken as the world comes crashing down
All that lives expires
Yet so untimely
Lord dethroned
My brother betrayer

Ripping wounds revealed
Harbinger of doom
The sky has fallen
And I bare it's weight

These walls harbor uniquity
A darkness which never sleeps
Sewing the seeds of doubt within
I am but a pawn

Looming clouds prevail
Concealing the Sun
Weaving a tapestry of guile

I've tried to keep adrift
On a sea of confusion
Drank of the rivers and vale

Life ends here
Commit this body to the ground
Let soil wash over crossed arms
A vessel to the grave
Rests in lament
Life ends here

Pull me up through the sky

Peering through the trees
Wildfires alive in me
Will turn you to stone
I can still see the face
You buried alone

Held in sleep

Life ends here
Commit this body to the ground
Let soil wash over crossed arms
A vessel to the grave
Rests in lament

Banished
Banished


02. Sands Of Time

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
As the world turns again
Lifetimes come to an end
Days are lost in a void
Closer with every turn

I felt the earth move
Yet grounded to my core
Watched the clouds race past
An age transpired before my eyes

As the day turns to night
Forced into confinement
But no peace will I find
Just counting hours by

I felt the earth move
Revolting beneath my feet
Each moment deceives the mind
And our perceptions of time

Void of being and light

As year pass by the Reaper's hourglass deplets
All life will cease

Seeking the past
Always chasing the horizon
How long before we reach the end of the road
And our names are carved in stone

Endless aeons begin
As I watch the dead Sun burn

Before your demise
Close your weary eyes
In the back of your mind
You'll see the final Sands of Time


03. Empyreal (Part 1)

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
It's said the future's written in the skies
The stars align
Planets collide
Shadows inherit the Earth

Denounce this shallow faith
I have seen through the veil
I espouse this call to arms

Of the Empyreal paradigm
Preaching to all that breathes life
Fear the divine

Denounce this shallow faith
I have seen through the veil
I espouse this upheaval

As stones collide with ignorance
Burrow your feral words into the ground
The graves you've made will pull you down

Holy man keep your revelations to yourself
Deny all you are

Keep your blindfold out of spite
For all who lack direction need a guide

Beneath a sunken sky
We will reap what you've sewn
Bind your mouth
And drop your head down

As stone collide with ignorance
Burrow your feral words into the ground
The graves you've made will put you down


04. Empyreal (Part 2)

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Instrumental


05. A Serpent's Tongue

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Through compulsion
Deceptive thoughts escape
Revealing a leech within

All blood replaced
Archaic Ancestry
Consuming the mind

Shape shifting
Hallowed guise
Soul engraved
Becoming a corporeal slave

Beneath the surface
Lies another being
Seeping through your skin

Beguiling
Transparent
Words flow like venomous spit

Shape shifting
Hallowed guise
Soul engraved
Becoming a corporeal slave

Riddled with disease

It breathes
It bleeds
It speaks
Lies

The mask of humanity breaks

Jaws open to expose this vile creature
Possessed in flesh uttering hypocrisy

Nothing does it taste
It's only purpose is to secrete verbal waste

Leech within

Holding to
One ounce of truth
All see through
To what lies beneath you

A constant struggle inside
Biologically lobotomized
Before you speak and even begin to think
Remember you're merely a man and not a god


06. Awakening

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Tunnels of light capture symbols in the stone
Out of touch and weak
Return this scourge to it's seed

Held in life's quicksand
Emptiness defined
By the blaze ignite
Embody the light

Infinite fires burn through mortal skin and bone
As shapes shift and coil
Darkness departs, divides

Held in life's quicksand
Emptiness defined
By the blaze ignite
Embody the light

Broken to the core
Destroyed by every thought
Pierce through every flaw
Like waves unbounded

Impurity binds the flesh
Wrapped in cold misery
Darkness breathing light, eternally

Impurity binds the flesh
Wrapped in cold misery
Darkness breathing life, empowering

Empowering

Regenerate,
Engage,
Awakening

Regenerate,
Engage,
Bone, body and mind


07. Kingdom Of Solitude

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
I am your keper
And this wall will protect
Will all great at Neptune's ocean wash the blood from my hands

Transformed and tiresome
A ghostly vision of what life used to be

Dead eyes stare aimlessly
At what's beyond

In need of anguish
The penalty repaind
To end the means

I am Impurity

Imprisoned in a cold shell
So isolate
Awating the grave

Wallowing in exile
A ritual sacrifice
The hunter has come

Dead eyes stare aimlessly
At what's beyond
In need of anguish
The penalty repaid
To end the means

Teacher! Leader!
Show us how to feel pain and remorse
Bleed these lacerations dry
Until I cease the urge to exploit

This Kingdom of Solitude
A personal hell
I must try not to feed off the pain
That I once reveled in

A lone wolf in this emptiness
Defeated
I've served this sentence far too many times

This face is scarred and worn
Help me get rid of this crown of thorns
I still feed of the pain
That I once reveled in

Teacher! Leader!
Show us how to feel the pain and remorse
Bled these lacerations dry
Until I cease the urge to exploit


08. Where The Sky Ends

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Instrumental


09. Dystopia

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
A wave of light
Tears through the eye
As the taste of bitter destruction
Swells the tongue

Baron Earth
Swen with seeds of wrath
Engulfed in tragedy
By purveyors of corruption and greed

On suffering they feed

Flock to the heavens
In swells of despair
Crawling towards your bitter end

Turn away from the Sun
That's severed the night from day
When all lie, steal and cheat
It means nothing in a world of deceit

...And without words
The black hearts of man
Will teach us to fear
By the force of their hand

When rivers flood and break their banks
Tides turn, storm rolls
When skies ignite with rain like fire
Tides turn, storm rolls
When mortal men barter for peace
Beware he who bears the mark of the beast

Following blind men,
To their graves
Death greets you,
With a suffocating embrace

...And without words
The black hearts of man
Will teach us to fear
By the force of their hand


10. Apparitions

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
How quick the seasons change
The leaves turned from green to grey
A flickering Apparition hovers above

So familiar
Yet so distant
Preserved in age
Icey hands support a somber face

Like a curse of immortality
Father time mocks me

Through grave and tomb
Past valley and precipice
Emerges the ghost of retribution

The horizon burns
Set light by kin and blood
A snake amongst us
Has soured this soil

Sometimes I hope you aren't looking down on me
To witness what I've become

Through time you will see what blinds you
Beholder of all light
Turn back the stone
To your slumber return

Suspended on a tide of obscurity
A wraith missing a crown

It almost feels like
Time is standing still
Yet somehow time
Has drained me of my youth

The years I've waited,
Have all but slipped away,
Torn from me

Father time forever mocks me

I have become,
I have become powerless,
Powerless

I have become,
I have become so emotionless

Through time you will see what blinds you
Beholder of all light
Turn back the stone
To your slumber return


11. Altered States Of Consciousness

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
All control is lost
Senses deprived
Deaf ears still hear the malign

The altars crumbling
Cloak of obscurity
A crown wrapped tight around you neck
Gaunt hands to hold you back

I've seen the world in a new light
No holy shrines
Nothing to resemble eternal life

Now turning back I see,
What could have been but never was
A pressure so dense,
Upon my chest it could paralyze

Lucid

A mask forced upon me
Impaled by fear

Stones drag to the riverbed below
Below

Death is here
And he's been clawing at my thoughts again
Forever drowning in perdition

Submerged in azure waters


12. Beyond The Resurrected

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Bleak shades become familiar
Withing a cavernous haze
Eyes wide but lifeless
Billows of smoke decay

Free, yet held in place
Bound by veins

No winds can disconnect
Severed from the outside
Roots swell and seep
And drain life from everything

Behold a change
All consuming
Dead skin, dead flesh
Earthly womb

Deathly haze so thick
Coiling the air
Once stood a hollow man,
Once stood a ghost,

Beyond The Resurrected

Now the blood that pulses,
Through me has been replaced
Eyes sink into,
This vast land and ocean

Forced through the Earth's shell

I can't see the sky anymore
I can't see what's dragging me down

Deathly haze so thick
Coiling the air
Once stood a hollow man,
One stood a ghost,

Beyond The Resurrected


13. Eclipsed

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Shrouded in darkness
It has formed a wreath around you
Wisdom comes through exile
And through this alone
Moon's lapse
Escape the trance
Your throne grows cold

The day breaks into,
A thousand shards
Dawn breaks into,
Everlasting night

Shrouded in darkness
It has formed a shell around you
Wisdom comes throughr exile
And though this alone
Moon's lapse
Escape the trance
Before you grow old

The light has lost it's path
No Sun will rise in the epoch of the shadow

Light blinds our eyes
Eclipsing dark Luna's sky
Flooding the night

The face of the Earth
Silent yet still alive
Pulled into the night


14. From The Edge Of The Earth

Music & lyrics by Sylosis
Falling ground beneath my feet
Pulling my heart through my ribs
Head hung low
Dragged through the soil
No one to carry me on through the storm

Through time reborn,
I'll become the blood of the Earth
A voice unheard

Desolation served to the grave
Punished through an age
I've felt the piercing cold
Claw at my skin
Bury me with the maker

Through time rebon,
I'll become the blood of the Earth
No one to serve

Each day withers and fades
Yet the guilt never leaves
Years of endless mourning
A conscience so unclean

I've begged, pleaded and beseeched
Humbled before your majesty
I've felt the cold Moon's mercy
Now it's suffocating

Relieve me

Push me back,
Pulling me back,
No crown shall I bare

Push me back,
Pulling me back,
To salvation

Eyes so palid
Keep the heart beating
Long live the blood I yield

I kneel before your throne
Oh, God, what have I done
Tell them I've suffered enough
No open arms wait for me
Just this cold body
