Track Name: Man is the cruelest animal
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
Track Name: Duality
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
Track Name: Cross the rubicon
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”
Track Name: Founded on the shambles
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
