01. Plague of Conscience

Accept the laws of destiny, mirage of a twisted fantasy
To realise what came before, was just the passing of a cause
So with rapture burning, indignation churning
Leaves an acerbic state of mind
All in your mind

Purge the hypocrites
That are your enemies
Masquerade of faith
Sucking dry on the bones of wisdom

Caustic words are your defence, to justify incompetence
How it must smart when you're alone and face the truth you've always known
Ingratiate yourself, save face and nothing else
When it's over vilify
Hands to the sky

Purge...

So one and the same
Devoid of dignity
In plague of conscience now
Propagate their fantasy and fail

Exact the caustic tyranny, chalice of human misery
In weak defence of hopeless cause, but lethargy was all you brought
Malign through scorn abundance
You've always been the hunted
Now your sentence takes its toll
Into the void

Purge...

So one...


02. Six Feet Under the Gun

Your conceited doctrines burned, all your principles you spurned
Because in truth they were not their, another costume that you wear

The bitterness burns at you
But a lie is never the truth

A supercilious facade to hide the weakness that's at heart
In spite the reason that belies the wretched traits you die to hide

The servant was born to betray as the light is sure to fade

All at once it crashes down
In this mire you will drown
To the sound of your own voice
Six feet under the gun
All the bridges that you burned
Opportunities you spurned
All come crashing down on you
Six feet under the gun
Such a tangled web we weave
In the practice of deceit
For too long we were ensnared
Six feet under the gun
As it unravels 'for your eyes
Only silence nullifies
Sanctimonious denial
Six feet under the gun

Your burning need to hold the floor, to perpetrate the caricature
And in sarcastic false riposte malfunction in senseless loss

The fantasy swallows you
When you've bitten off more that you can chew

All at once...


03. Carnival of Souls

Indentured now as servants trapped beneath the weight
Bone crushing reality that snared the hand of fate
Saviours to soldiers all are perilous in mind
To starve a nation yet and pander to its pride

Concealed within
Apathy routine
And yet we preach

Can you believe that people never thought of asking?
What more do we forfeit when scared of the unmasking

Concealed within
Apathy routine
And yet we preach

Dead as the prophets warning
Drowned in the same mire
In carnival of souls
We march to expire

Broken the wreckage points to constant self renewal
So treat the symptoms once more, blind to the fall

Concealed within
Apathy routine
And yet we preach

Dead as the prophets warning
Drowned in the same mire
In carnival of souls
We march to expire
And through the degradation
Passed by a single cause
This through control is reason
Enslaved forevermore


04. In Thought Alone

Drift in darkness
Whispering of light
Afraid of reason
You hold what's in sight
Holding the cross we bare
Striking us unaware
Losing faith all over
Selling the score

At first light they're coming
To reap the unrewarding
All will bow unquestioned
To shelter the harbinger

Soul lies, evermore
War in the sanctuary
Soul tires, marching on
Resistance in thought alone

In thought alone
In thought alone

Thinking aloud
Denouncing deceit
Cynical logic
Refutes the truth I speak
Holding the cross we bare
Striking us unaware
Losing faith all over
Selling the score

At first...

Soul lies...

In thought alone
In thought alone


05. All Seeing I

You speak more than you think
And think less than anyone believes
Inert futility
This numbing paradox that screams
Where is sympathy
You spat in the face of opportunity
Then with bold audacity
Pointed the finger right at me

The coward in you runs
So spineless afraid of all you see
Infant stupidity
Concealing shallowness to hide
Lost in apathy
Or left in the dust of mediocrity
Faced with cold reality
Another slave to cast away

Now wonder why
As you reach for the sky
On a wave of your own self importance you ride
Beg for forgiveness to those that you scorn
The all seeing I has you down to the core
To the core

You speak more than you think
And think less than many will perceive
Attest misanthropy
This numbing apathy that breeds
Where is sympathy
You spat in the face of opportunity
Then with bold audacity
Pointed the finger right at me

Pointed the finger right at me

Now wonder why...


06. Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt

In the void between conscious thought
Where susceptible your mind is bought

And through the web of conscience
The perpetrators slip
In freedom from the known
You'll see the truth

Beyond a shadow of a doubt...
Ans as the light creates the dark you fear
These perceptions have to be adhered

The timeless sense of logic
That breaks wicked cause
It seems has been forgotten
Inertia trade

Beyond a shadow of a doubt...

And in the vacuous pursuit of self
Where ego burns the truth in stealth

And through the web of conscience
The perpetrators slip
In freedom from the known
You'll see the truth

Beyond a shadow of a doubt...


07. Architects of Fear

At the zenith of ambition unobstructed
Lays a curse upon mankind
De-populate through massive agenda
In accordance with the guide

Architecture of fear intertwines
Reason the enemy
Imprison the mind
Instilled in the young
To eradicate
Trivialising
Life by mandate

And to the ones that wish you gone
Without a flicker of remorse
In their elitist paradise
In judgement they will sacrifice

And as a monument to sadist machinations
Incremental paradigm
These ten commandments of wickedness unrivalled
Pave the way for our demise

Architecture of fear intertwines
Reason the enemy
Imprison the mind
Instilled in the young
To eradicate
Trivialising
Life by mandate


08. The Accuser

Affliction seething, from the recesses of life
Born out of solitude and cast into the light

Shadows burning scars in the cross
Another penance, another loss
Surrouding vacuum forms
Forcing all to conform

Eternal emptiness the death of shallow life
A looking at the curse a changing in reverse

Shadows burning scars in the cross
Another penance, another loss
Surrouding vacuum forms
Forcing all to conform

In the purge of heavens law
Un-saintly dirge contorts
Souls scream in agony
And die in heresy

Signs of dismay
Paid fortune, all the same

Storm bringing darkness wakes the souls of enmity
The sorrow pacifies all those that should not be

Shadows burning scars in the cross
Another penance, another loss
Surrouding vacuum forms
Forcing all to conform

In the purge of heavens law
Un-saintly dirge contorts
Souls scream in agony
And die in heresy


09. Shadowbound

Trade the lives of the powerless for the sport of mortal men
Blackened wisdom hails their cries for uninformed repent
Greed is the drug, the addiction is power
Afflicting the throng for the profit of empire

Enact the rites of hypocrisy for the scourge of relevance
Set in motion worlds apart all the herds of mindless men
Like cattle the herd are sent to their slaughter
The failure of freedom to counter the order

Without reason torn apart
As the faceless play their part
Another face to sell the score
Another mask to hide the cause

Face the shadowbound
Working underground
Decide without a sound
How our lives unravel

Trade the lives of the ignorant a collateral in blood
Falsify this paradigm to render all brain dead
Soulless inaction the root of the cause
The fallout of judgement that senses the fall

There's only worth if you believe
The only value's what you see
Yet things get lost behind a price
of superficial edifice

Face the shadowbound
Working underground
Decide without a sound
How our lives unravel


10. The Mask of Anarchy

Waging wars of liberty, under a veil of secrecy
In procession it arrived, one by one and side by side
To stamp out the sense of will, dead earth upon dead earth we till
Until in union we praise, thou art god and king and grace

On a white horse it arrived
Expressionless like one deprived
He is anarchy no less
And on his brow the shadow rests
Trampling over English land
Blood of the commoner on hand
And in the blood swept deluge claim
The right to govern in its name

What is slavery you could tell? To tast freedom and taste well
Yet when its very name has grown a mere echo of its own
And forced upon this forgery, this life blood of society
A measure of what you believe, no more value than you see

It is to be a slave in soul and to hold no strong control
Over your own wills but be all that others make you see
And so accept the consequence behind the walls of our defence
Afraid to see beyond the mask in the final blood stained task

In the hour of the dark, a cornered hunter bares his mark
Cast into the abyss, screaming whirlwinds cry sadness

I cannot see, I cannot feel, only anger rising
Like a cancer spreading now, lonely life subsiding

I am frozen emotion gone in the pandemonium
All is lost all is spent, lost inside and hiding

Rise like lions after slumber
In un vanquish able number
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you
You are many they are few
You are many they are few
