Track Name: The Procedure of Man
Tell me is your god pleased with the way, his creation turned out?
Tell me is your god pleased with how we're following, following the procedure of man?
The failure of the flesh consumes our minds, you follow depictions in a book to live your lives,
belief is a solace to make you feel alive, a solace to make you feel alive.
But you don't understand, there is no meaning in uncertainty.
Find the truth within yourselves.
Build your structures around sentiments based on logic rather than reason.
Follow, the procedure of man (x2)
This is a sermon of lies that fooled millions of people, plague of words that lead the sheep to slaughter.
Blind ambition is not what we're here for, open your eyes and follow the procedure of man.
Procedure of man.
Endless procession.
Track Name: Night Dweller
Here we are gathered over the bodies, a congregation celebrating the graves of those inflicted by torture,
remembrance of the night we left our stain.
Before the night reaches dawn let's ride into the silence.
Waiting for the adversary to draw near,
paralyzed between faith and fear.
Enemy, attempt to stand your ground, we have no remorse for your lives.
Night dwellers, we are here to take what is ours.
Night dwellers, we are here to take what is ours.
This internal hate will never go away.
Go away.
Dismember, rip them limb from fucking limb, remove their flesh for glory.
Dismember, rip them limb from fucking limb, remove their flesh for glory.
Before the night reaches dawn lets ride into the silence.
Waiting for the adversary to draw near, paralyzed between faith and fear.
Dismember, limb from fucking limb.
Dismember, limb from fucking limb.
Track Name: Constrained In My Captivity
I made you watch in sovereign horror, as I decorticated every last bit of your flesh, a gracious feast for a bloodthirsty, creature like me.
Consuming your anatomy will suffice my desires for now,
but I seem to be the host in my eternal masquerade.
Impersation, depicting what I love, but I never thought I would be.
I began by forcing your eyes open, and placing a mirror in front of you, to see your worthless body, constrained in my captivity.
Help me, you screamed, but no one would hear you.
Suffering became certain to you, i'm just passing the time.
I can't control myself, I can not stop.
Persecution, my delectation.
In your last breath I hope you crying out to be saved.
A quick slice separation of the brain from spine,
in an attempt to please myself I end your life.
Consuming your anatomy, will suffice my desires for now.
Track Name: Clockwork
This sick endless perversion, the scent of carnage in mind.
Familiar to my senses, i've been here before,
but my mind contorted otherwise keeps telling me, this night will not end.
Impurities by my hands, a merciless display, horror cloaked in informal insanity.
And in tragedy, demons dwell within me, the sound of suffering comforts me in admiration, I question my desire to remain.
This sick endless perversion, the scent of carnage in mind.
Familiar to my senses, i've been here before,
but my mind contorted otherwise keeps telling me, this night will not end.
In captivation I am greeted with a new love,
your dead stare and pale skin illuminating.
The silence now bestowed upon us, complacency sets in, knowing that we shall be forever.
The lights are dimmed down low, in preparation for our night ahead, my very purpose now in question again (x3)
The lights are dimmed down low, my hands are deep within your ribs.
My very purpose in question again.
Track Name: Anatomizer
The stench of rotting flesh in this room provokes my,
my constant urge to dine.
Gathering the scattered limbs to indulge,
Invocations won't save you now.
Your body's strapped down to the table, sing to me.
Ask me why you're here and what you can do to leave.
I'm intrigued with the look of death in your eyes.
The sincerity in your voice is appealing.
Do you fear me now, that I have control?
Do you fear me now, that I have control?
Feel the skin and tendons, ripping apart.
I have waited so long, to possess your heart.
Do you fear me now? I am in control.
Do you fear me now? I am in control.
I am in control.
Track Name: Structures and Body Bags
Everyone looks so perfect tonight, dressed in body bags so ready to die.
We walk around searching for answers that cannot be found.
Realize this and bury your hopes in the ground.
Complacency doesn't belong here, complacency doesn't belong here.
I saw the flaws in the plan, systematic failure within the structures.
Don't stray from what we know, don't stray from what we know.
Even though I am worse than a beast, don't I deserve to...
Even though I am worse than a beast, don't I deserve to live?
Don't I deserve to live?
Oh, the possibilities are endless, is the after life another chance? A second breath?
Will we soar above the worlds?
I watch them feed, they follow aimlessly with no thought to question.
I watch them feed, they follow aimlessly with no thought to question.
We're all faced with the same question...
Will I soar above the world?
How can we believe what we think we know,
when all we know isn't real?
Everyone looks so perfect tonight.
Dressed in body bags, so ready to die.
Dressed in body bags, ready to die.
Track Name: Anathema
The look in your eyes as I reach for my scalpel,
beckons me to a comfort so profound.
Internally I am longing for your corpse,
I must prolong before I send you to your grave.
I'll leave you alive for the morning, entertain me.
I'll leave you alive for the morning, captivate me.
The dawn now has arrived, my dear...say one last prayer to your lord.
My hands are tight around your throat, soothing my desire to embrace you.
The caress of your cold skin to mine, compells me to progress to intimacy divine.
Lay still and wonder what could have been, had I not found you, had I not found you.
These walls surrounding me hold secrets.
These secrets hold my mind together.
A chamber secluded to gather with the dead.
Harvest the organs, and hang their severed heads.
