Track Name: The Virus of Faith
Death will fall upon us all and wash away every divine covenant you’ve ever made
So tighten the noose around the throats of those who lead astray with the virus of faith
Tighten the noose around the throats of those who spread his name as a seed of hate

You’ve crossed the line, you won’t heed this final cry
Dark sermons spill from jaws with tainted tongues
Both hands raised to the sky
Preaching repugnance for the fallen ones

How can you go on pretending this world is yours?
Your god is dead and gone
Implanting fear into the minds of the young
The world will never forget the evil you’ve done

Death will fall upon us all and wash away every divine covenant you’ve ever made
So tighten the noose around the throats of those who lead astray with the virus of faith

No kings of men
No martyrs left
Deluded by faith as ignorance infests
Cancer of the ages
Made a slave of yourself for the words of someone else
The false saviour thrown to the depths

Distort the truth with every word you spit
A poison to societies roots
The true abomination is the one you’ve built your faith upon
Desperate to control our lives
You vile fucking scum

Burn the book of lies
Let it be undone
A vile sickness that has plagued the earth for far too long

We are the children of sin and we come bearing tides of death
To those who blindly follow lies until their last breath

How can you go on pretending this world is yours?
Your god is dead and gone
Implanting fear into the minds of the young
The world will never forget the evil you’ve done

Ruin the plague of faith and reveal it for what it’s really worth
A scapegoat for their insecurities
A perverted icon of their uncertainties
The flaws of man made flesh in the form of a lie
Imprisoning minds and veiling the truth from our eyes

No kings of men
No martyrs left
Deluded by faith as ignorance infests
Cancer of the ages
Made of yourself for the words of someone else
The false saviour thrown to the depths

And when the truth is exposed, when the safety net falls
Who will you follow, where will you stand?
If this is really the world your god had planned
We welcome the flames of the end

No kinds of men
No martyrs left
This sickness shall be put to rest

If this is really the world your god had planned
We welcome the flames of the end
No kinds of men
No martyrs left
This sickness shall be put to rest
Track Name: Vengeance
Forced into submission by the ones we call our own
Sacrifice as a service to the voice behind the throne

Terror used as a tool to control the weak and silence insurgency
Enforced by the powers that be to ensure we bow to their supremacy

Total condemnation of the entire population
Every demand is a threat to our lives
Passing laws based on a higher validation
Masses ignored and left to die

Forced into submission without question of their ultimate rule
Surveillance recording everything you say and do

But we will not be silenced by treason, a world dominated by fear
And our voices will be heard for hundreds of years
Shackles exchanged for debt
We have always been slaves in the eyes of the government

It’s a simple fact that they slaughter their own, disguised as a terrorist act
In order to expose our fear and gain our trust
We will never again accept the unjust

We are the legions of the end
Let all who follow see the truth:
You are a slave to a mortal fucking man

We the people gave these cowards their power, and we can fucking take it back
Dissolution of the mouth of the law

The day will finally come
When the corpses of the treacherous ones shall be hung
As a message to all who oppose the right to liberty
When the corpses of the treacherous ones shall be hung
As a message to all who stand with the enemy

This is not revenge against a police state
This is fucking vengeance for all the lives you take
We shall create a godless, unopposed clean slate
Track Name: Dissimulate
A world in shroud, obscured by sovereignty
They condition society to blindly feed from hands filled with deception and disease
Taught to shun all who stand against tyranny
Will this pathetic race ever be free?

Constant inflation has the working class imprisoned by debt
Behind the veil of justice lies a crooked government that monitors every single move you make
How can you honestly say the life you live is not that of a slave?
And still their agenda stays the same, stained in blood throughout history

Rise up and break the bonds of your subjugation
Why can't you see what is right in front of you?

When was the last time you even thought to question the true motives of your desolated nation?
We have the power to set ourselves free

An infinite process of greed and consumerism
No matter the maker, the agenda will always remain the same
Throughout the pages of time manipulation and deceit has forged the fate of mankind

Only when we decide to seek the truth for ourselves can we pave the path to a free future
With the winds of revolt out our backs
We'll watch you choke to death on that shit you call pride

Fascist laws enforced by the police
Hide the truth from the majority
Disguise a world war with the illusion of peace
Why should we trust authority?

How many innocent will die by your hands?
We will not stop until we silence their suffering
This corruption will meet its end and the world will never bleed again

An infinite process of greed and consumerism
No matter the maker, the agenda will always remain the same
Throughout the pages of time manipulation and deceit has forged the fate of mankind

Why can't you see what's right in front you?
Not a single word they've said to you has ever been true
Track Name: New World Slaughter
Blind obedience bred for systematic slavery
Innocent lives thrown to the depths

I have watched as the tyrants exact their vengeance
I saw the true price of power stain the ground red
For a few to live forever, many must die
The rise of the elite born of those who bled

Billions of men, women, and children are dead
All for the profit of a few rich men
Blood for oil and death for land
Human life comes second to supply and demand

The gears of war grind on and on
A machine turning bodies into dollars
The trail of dead marks the rise of the ascendancy
Our entire species nothing more than a commodity

I will not allow humanity to die
Forsaken by all, believing a lie

False kingdoms ever rise and fall
The world in ruin, the final stand
Bear witness to the earth made hell
Defiled by the greed of man

How did this happen? How did it come to this?
Are we beyond saving?
Is this how everything ends?
All existence lost

The ground shakes as the earth is torn apart
The air we breathe turns to flames and dust
Skies blacken as the ash blots out the sun
All human life ended as one

The last failed power play of a world gone astray
The final testament of this desolate order
The last chapter of the New World Slaughter

The last testament to this desolate order
And it’s lust for fucking power, bleeding the world dry
Revulsion spreads, poisoning the earth
The end is fucking nigh

False kingdoms ever rise and fall
The world in ruin, the final stand
Bear witness to the earth made hell
Defiled by the greed of man

How did this happen? How did it come to this?
Are we beyond saving?
Is this how everything ends?
All existence lost

False kingdoms ever rise and fall
The world in ruin, the final stand
Bear witness to the earth made hell
Defiled by the greed of man

The last failed power play of a world gone astray
The final testament of this desolate order
The last chapter of the New World Slaughter
Track Name: Nihility
We waste our lives fearing the divine
Eternal rest will take us away
In the end we will all die the same

Expecting salvation in life beyond
Destroying this world for a prize foretold

There is nothing in the heavens above that can save you from the hell below
Malevolence, ammunition and fire shall cleanse this tainted earth

Pray to your god for your children’s lives
Their fate was sealed when you believed the lies
Kill yourself for a false idol
Godless we remain

Nothing awaits you, there is no afterlife
Nothing awaits you, no fucking paradise
Your existence is forgotten in the absence of light
Nothing awaits you, in the end we just fucking die

God of nothing, summon thy children to the gates
Never to fucking open
You sold your soul for the sake of a lie

Spreading like sickness from every corner of the globe
Our cities will become a burial ground
A forgotten wasteland

There is no heaven beyond
Only the bleak darkness of eternity
As you return to the earth to be fed on by the worms
Unholy Cowards

Bring forth a selfish cleansing
In the name of a non-existent father
It is all for nothing
Blind faith destroys the mind
Kill yourself for a false idol
Godless we remain
As you commit a worthless suicide

Pray for destruction as realise that no god will ever answer your cries
Killing others to save yourself, return to the earth
Your flesh burns as your mind slips away
All that you once were is gone for eternity
Kill yourself for a false idol
Godless we remain

Nothing awaits you, there is no afterlife
Nothing awaits you, no fucking paradise
Your existence is forgotten in the absence of light
Nothing awaits you, we just fucking die
Track Name: halluciNation
What was done to us created us
Every action will create a reaction
We are called to be architects of our future, not the victims of theirs
Until we become conscious we will never rebel
He who controls the past controls the future
He who controls the present controls the past
The two faces of change: Creator and Destroyer
Remorseless destruction of old to forge creation of the new

It is not god who kills the children
Not fate that butchers the innocent
Not destiny that feeds us to the dogs
Its them. Only them.

We are brought upon the earth
Born to serve the false masters placed before us
Consuming false reality
Bound to this hallucination

But we will not be silenced.
Track Name: Born of Malice
A dark disease of injustice rules over all
And as our rights slowly waste away
We avoid the truth like it's the fucking plague

This malevolent sickness engulfs the earth
Rotting out all hope for a better world
Indoctrination reaching as far as the Eye can see
An infected wretched state of humanity

Destroy the powers that be
We'll be the change that the world needs to see
Destroy the powers that be
Fuck this world of misery

Slaves of a dark empire
Ruling from the shadows
We will be the light to expose the unjust and the corrupt
And as the violence grows, no longer imposed, we will design a world of our own
We will design a world of our own
We will design a world of our fucking own

Destroy the powers that be
We'll be the change that the world needs to see
Destroy the powers that be
Fuck this world of misery

Arise before a new era born of malice
The ruins of an ancient world doomed to destruction
A new era born of malice
Doomed to destruction

We will burn the black throne
No longer afraid to reject what we know to be wrong
We were nothing in the eyes of those once powerful, disposable

No longer afraid
No longer a slave
No longer influenced by the will of the wicked

Now they cower in fear at the sight of the flames
Cower in fear at the sight of the flames we lit to flood the sky
Track Name: Awaken
We as a species have failed ourselves, destroying the one thing that keeps us alive
We are human filth, this world will rot beneath our feet

Awaken before me
Open your eyes to all that you have done
Human fucking filth
Consuming this world without a trace of remorse
The arrogance of man shall devour the earth

Awaken before this monstrosity
Lifeless abomination
Mindlessly marching towards our graves
No one can be saved
We have become our own weapon of annihilation

Human fucking filth
We don’t deserve to be here

Destroying everything in our path
Self-destructive parasites

Feeding off the core
This world will rot beneath our feet

Open your eyes to all that you have done
Human fucking filth
Consuming this world without a trace of remorse
The arrogance of man shall devour the earth

Human fucking filth
We don’t deserve to be here

Cry for your families
Pray as all you love is erased right before your eyes
Erased forever

Awaken before me
Destroying everything, poisoning the world
Corruption lies hand in hand with the power you hold
The sky cracks open, the sea swallows the land
We have brought about the damnation of man

As the sins of the fathers rest upon the shoulders of the damned
A generation left to fail in a broken world
Humanity has met it’s end

Destroying everything in our path
Self-destructive parasites

Fuck what you stand for
Fuck everything you’ve done
Fuck what you stand for
Fuck what we’ve become

This world will rot beneath our feet
Rot beneath our feet

Fuck what you stand for
Fuck everything you’ve done
Fuck what we’ve become
Track Name: Seditionist
Bow
All hail
All praise

All hail the fathers of deception
Misleading the masses
All praise the product of destruction
Fall to your knees

Reject the doctrine that is force fed to you
Arise against these serpent tongues
False prophets of profit will enslave the world

God will be banished
And when your faith fails you, who will you turn to in your time of need?
Spreading a plague of fear to coerce obedience
Puppeteering politicians to gain power in your wars
The curse of religion has consumed the earth

A twisted idol of hope shrouding himself in white smoke
Defiling children and suppressing all who ever spoke against the so called king of kings
Behold the Lord of Hypocrisy

I want you to realise that the heavens are empty
and how misinformed you really are
I want you to question everything
All that which you misplaced your faith in

When will you open your fucking mind
Instead of living so blinded by lies

All hail the fathers of deception
Misleading the masses
All praise the product of destruction
Fall to your knees

When will you to realise that the heavens are empty
and how misinformed you really are
I want you to question everything
All that which you misplaced your faith in

I want you to deny your insignificance

They are nothing against us
Forget what they have you believe
Stop following like fucking sheep
Wake up, they have you enslaved
No taste of freedom before the grave
When will you rise up, what will it take?
Their power exists only as long as we let it
They are no threat to our advance
Deny your insignificance
Track Name: Vincere et Servitutem
This is the age of the minimum wage slave
At the core of an invisible war
This is the age of the minimum wage slave
Bound forever more

The alpha, the omega
Inherit the end
Our free will is no more than a lie

Erase the false flag
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who believe they are free
Oblivious to the never-ending cycle
Engineered and executed to keep us blindly under their control

This is the age of the minimum wage slave
At the core of an invisible war
This is the age of the minimum wage slave
We are bound forever more

The most socially paralysing construct we have ever known
Endless consumption of shit we don’t need to own
Possessed by our possessions
An endless cycle of greed
Created by the interest that can never be repaid

Debt is the weapon used to conquer and enslave
As our self proclaimed leaders immorally obey

The alpha, the omega
Inherit the end
Our free will is no more than a lie
Vincere et Servitutem

To the dollar we are all bound
By the monetary system
To the lifeblood of corporatocracy
Sickly creations powering an empire
A domino effect that only benefits the elite at the top of pyramid
Engulfing the life from all below
Treachery thrives in the absence of truth
Autonomy is beyond all hope
A fractured existence based upon a lie

This is the age of the minimum wage slave
At the core of an invisible war
This is the age of the minimum wage slave
We are bound forever more

Slaves to the economic system
Your life’s controlled by a piece of fucking paper

Behind the throne of the king stand the corporate gods of corruption
Track Name: Hollow Mask
Everything that has a beginning has an end

They seek power for the sake of power itself
No interest in the good of the people
Unlike the evil of old, they are aware of their intentions
Power is not the means, it is the end

I know you’re out there, hiding in the shadows
I can feel you watching, I know that you’re afraid
You fear us, you fear change
Know that your tyranny has numbered fucking days

Waging war in the name of peace
Imprisoned, slavery is freedom from fear
Preaching ignorance as strength

Their rule was never seized as a temporary means
To forge a better world and relinquish it back to the people
We are led like lambs to the slaughter
Power is not the means, it is the end

I can’t see the future
I don’t know how this will end
But its clear how it will begin

I’m going to show these people what you didn’t want them to see
A world without rules, a world set free
Expose the lies to humanity

I know you’re out there, hiding in the shadows
I can feel you watching, I know that you’re afraid
You fear us, you fear change
Know that your tyranny has numbered fucking days

This revolt is more than flesh and blood
It is an idea that can not be fucking killed
When will you understand?

There is only light and dark and the dark must be swept away
Even against the end of the world I will not compromise my beliefs
