Track Name: Wolves among Wolves
Welcome the serpent tongues, those wanton fools
Unfurling their sickness via immoral tools
Infest, infect, invade our privacy
VIOLATE - the abscess ready to burst

They throng in crowd to purge
Until blood begins to surge
Wolves among wolves

Bow down on leeches, kneel before the kings
Sons of perdition claim their pestilent wings
Confined in corruption, unified we stand
BLOODBATH - ashes of our kingdom drown in sand

We throng in crowd to purge
And the blood remains to surge

We are an obsolete creation - evolve or retreat
Welcome to the hell of your very own - (on demand) we're wolves among wolves

"So that is what hell is.
I would never have believed it.
You remember: the fire and brimstone, the torture.
Ah! the farce. There is no need for torture: hell is other people."
("No Exit" by Jean-Paul Sartre)

You betray the ones who stand right next to you
And slit the throats (that are) devouring all your truths
And when the judgement day is close at hand
ANNIHILATE - your throne is on the list of demand

We throng in crowd to purge
As the lies won't cease to merge

We are an obsolete creation - evolve or retreat
Welcome to the hell of your very own - (on demand) we're wolves among wolves
Track Name: Breach of Integrity (Argumentum ad Baculum)
Applaud the invaders
Who feed their opinions to weakling minds
Violating their rights to obtain their own convictions without any fear
Hereditary / stupidity - conclusion endless | misanthropy

Violation - they show no sense nor pity
Annihilation - under their hand you seek for validity
Violation - uphold their animosity
Annihilation - Breach of integrity

Compulsion to adhere
Decrees that rule out your convictions
There are no limitations to truth when the thrones are conqured by those who force feed
Eradication / deprivation - beaten intocomplete submission

Violation - they show no sense nor pity
Annihilation - under their hand you seek for validity
Violation - crush their animosity
Annihilation - Breach of integrity

Behold their powers
Our flesh is weak, but their minds are weaker
The oppressed and deprived are the puppets who bind their own strings above their masters
Violation / annihilation - indignant, but ephemeral idolization

Violation - they show no sense nor pity
Annihilation - under their hand you seek for validity
Violation - uphold their animosity
Breach of integrity
Track Name: Iniquity
We're left all alone, with our own deficient image
Compressed with all the boundaries that should improve the stability of civilization
INIQUITY - you forget about the truth we're all human
You beat the beaten til we all wonder why there was no one to take action

It's the absolute truth, we're all consuming beasts
Pushed over the edge where uncontrollable hate redefines our adopted confinements
INIQUITY - lines stretched to seek entitlement to bestial deeds
UBIQUITY - can't avert your eyes 'cause everyone around you bleeds

Come what may, we're not here to stay
From the emptiness we are bound to another plain
Be that as it may, no games left to play
Before the round of bullets starts swirling, remember there's no turning back

You stare at their skin tone like it's a venomous disease
Create yet another way to discriminate the tremulous and prod them on their knees
INIQUITY - tortured cells of misfit ideologies will dictate
UBIQUITY - can't deny the possibility of the atonement ... of love and hate

Come what may, we're not here to stay
From the emptiness we are bound to another plain
Be that as it may, no games left to play
Before the round of bullets starts swirling, remember there's no turning back
Track Name: An Epitome of Emptiness
Deep inside this mind, there's nothing to be found
Shivering solitude and absence of reason, light and sound
Washed up remedies putting pieces back together
Empty bordeaux glass on the table with this letter

I look at the paper, think about the closing line
Should I send it inscribed or just remove the last rhyme
God how I hope you called, just to give me a chance
But I do know that it's probably too much to ask

No, no - I didn't want to know
No - I didn't need to know
The truth about the only lie
I did nothing so wrong

There's no
For me
Two go
Track Name: The Great White Throne
Drawn down from the face of the earth to reconcile all the sins of mankind
He who stands on the great white throne shall smite the enemy blind

ENEMY!

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,
that each one may receive what is due him
for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad."
(2 Corinthians 5:10)

Behold the fall of the idols who created this generation of failure
He who stands on the great white throne refuses to find any kind of cure

FOR THIS IS REAL:
WE CONCEAL YOUR APPEAL
END OF DEAL

"And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it,
from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them."
(Revelation 20:11 (King James))

"Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-6)
Track Name: Sons of Perdition
Close up the streams of morbid affection
Bring the world to its knees by this stale neglection
We stand alone in lines - against the defeat
Plagued by defenseless fear, positioned to retreat

He who stands on the great white throne
We will come to know his name

We have been waiting
We have been waiting for him to come
We have been waiting
We have been waiting for this new son

Defiled in greed and loath, divided by doubt
Laced with venom, this pride's an incessant bout
Piled upon the flood of emptiness, failure and void
The sons of perdition - human consumed demonoid

He who stands on the great white throne
He will see and he will bleed
We will come to know this new son
Son of Perdition, the only Katechon

We have been waiting
We have been waiting for him to come
We have been waiting
We have been waiting for this new son


He who stands on the great white throne
He will see and he will bleed

We had been waiting
We had been waiting for this to come
We had been saving
We had been saving the world to none

... is this your hell?
