Flourish in obscurity the ugliest face of mankind Destined to be forevermore concealed Forced to repudiate its human nature Accept the inevitable “Man is the cruelest animal” Arose from the heart of man, the root of all evil We don’t need to summon Belial He is among us – lingering within Making atonement for the human nature An absurd confession of guilt for an inherent disposition Religion as the principal enemy of moral progress in the world “Man is the cruelest animal” Shouldn't we bear responsibility rather than passing the paton? Shouldn't we try to tame our own demons instead of being at God's mercy? “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he’s impotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Whence then is evil? (…)” We've sentenced ourselves to collapse
Duality (free) 03:17
We are duality – enlightened beings so consumed with hate Savagery concealed in suits while we refuse to codify barbarity in practised policy Fertile soil for vileness to grow We’re moving backwards, outsourcing empathy - progress idolatry We will go through the purgatory Fascination through abomination, blistering diseases called mankind We are duality – enlightened beings so consumed with hate We’re dissent – within our shells attitudes collide What have we become? We´re cowards to crusade the weaker ones and call it cure Sell them killing tools We’re standing on blood soaked soil, Ignorance numbly close your eyes We´re poisoned, a sepsis self-inflicted Attitudes collide What have we become? Sell them killing tools Numbly close your eyes
Cross the rubicon (free) 03:49
A prophecy fulfilled – warnings have been ignored Unconscious of what the evil fade may have in store for us Traits embedded in the origin of man have been carried to extremes Reason’s extinction Disciples who are heteronomous, indifferent, controllable “We are like lambs in a field, disporting themselves under the eye of the butcher, who chooses out first one and then another for his prey” Standing in the pillory, to pay the penalty of our existence Indifferentism, even at the point of collapse Compassion is a phenomenon which will rapidly decline As soon as the headlines and pictures begin to fade we crave for more We scramble for wealth, capital taken out of collapsing markets To milk the cashcow while the poor dogs cease to be Blissfully unaware of the threatening creation of a surveillance society Our nature will put us to an end Sickness, humiliation, ignorance We are like lambs in a field, disporting themselves under the eye of the butcher, who chooses out first one and then another for his prey”
Founded on the shambles – humanity at zero Remove the scales from your eyes Existence perishes in a lonely spasm of agony We are deprived from any positive perspectives and cast pearls before the swine We have reached an impasse to become the cancer - of the earth We have become the vengeance – to shed the blood of generations Dysfunction mankind – the bitter truth or just a black outlook? Founded on the shambles Founded on the shambles The thorns are of the tree we planted – they’ve torn us and we bleed We avoid any self-reflection and seed fruits of pessimism Our sole purpose is simply to serve as a warning to others
