Track Name: Chainsaw Of God
Ahhhh! The cannibals sing in apocalyptic praise
“Hail the king,
The Android Butcher!

Excommunicate those who wander past the gates
We are the face of
The undertaker!”

All the children of the afflicted were mistakes
Love is hate.
Love is evil!!!

I am the daemon [sic]
I am the pig
I am the face of hell
And this is what you did.

Radioactive vultures surround you in the rain
A hurricane
The chainsaw of God

Pride of the asylum-raised is decaying on the stage
We’re cybernating
The holocaust

Obliteration’s offspring are pounding on the cage
End of days!
End of everything!

I am the daemon [sic]
I am the pig
I am the face of hell
And this is what you did.
Track Name: Eugenicide
Embryonic divinity
Designed for
Transcending humanity
and mastering evolution

When you worship the Earth
In awe of her creations
Is the mind excluded?
From the advancements of the past
Are your thoughts diluted?
In the visions we dissolve

It’s all just a matter of time
We’re a product of intelligent design
The genome compiler programs
A transhuman master race

Sons of the Nephilim
Gods, we are destined to become
But not in the age of greed
As it will only benefit the elite
Track Name: The Saline
One desire
I claim what is not mine
Taken for granted
I sentence you to be...
One with the saline
So vivid yet real
Disappointment strikes.

Take me from this unseen mortal reality
Free me this poisonous insanity
Take me free me spare me

So vivid yet real
Disappointment strikes
Crossing the eye

For one and all natural calamity
Wake me from this unseen mortal reality
Free me from this poisonous insanity
Spare me this colliding ingenuity.
