Track Name: Hospice
UNABLE TO FULFIL YOUR GIVEN PROPHECY
RULER OF THE SKY, BUT NOW THE SCAVENGERS FEED
KILLING ANY HOPE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO BE
THE VULTURES ARE CIRCLING SANCTUM HOSPICE

BORN AS A GREAT BEAST TO REIGN OVER THE SKY
BUT YOUR POWER NOW FAILS AS YOU’RE CLINGING ONTO LIFE
NEW WORLD VULTURES, WAIT FOR YOU TO DIE
AS A FINAL DYING LIGHT, KEEPS THE PHOENIX FLAMES ALIVE
BUT YOU’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME

VULTURES WITHOUT SOLACE, CIRCLE SANCTUM HOSPICE
FEATHERS SHED AND YOUR FLIGHT PATH BLOCKED FROM LIFE AND DEATH

YOU STOKED YOUR FLAME WITH EVIL FIRES
ABUSED YOUR POWER, WHICH BECAME DEFILED
‘TIL YOUR DEMISE

STRANDED IN THE DESERT AT WAR WITH DEATH
SCAVENGERS FEAST AT YOUR FESTERED FLESH
PICKED YOUR BONES FINDING ONLY DUST
THE DOOR TO THIS EXISTENCE NOW SHUT
IN THE ASHES YOUR FILTH WON'T DIE
THE DOOR WILL OPEN AND PHOENIX FLAMES WILL BURN AGAIN
Track Name: Karmaphala
WITH EACH PASSING DEED I HAVE PLANTED A SEED
ACCORDING THE ACT, BE THE CROP THAT I REAP
DESIRES DEFINED BY THE POWERS THAT BE
OR IS THAT ENTITY ME?
ALL POISONED RIVERS BLEED INTO THE SEA
DETERMINING MY DESTINY

OUT OF ONE SHELL AND STRAIGHT BACK TO HELL
REMEMBER THE MILLIONS I FELLED
CAUSE AND EFFECT, STACKING THE DECK
PREPARE FOR THE LIFE THAT COMES NEXT

KARMAPHALA
CURSED TO LIVE AGAIN
MY SAMSARA
BORN FROM SIN
WHAT COMES AFTER?
IN ANOTHER SKIN

KARMAPHALA
MY SAMSARA
WHAT COMES AFTER?

DESIRE IS MAN’S WILL
AS IS HIS WILL IS HIS DEED
AND THESE DEEDS HE WILL REAP

KARMAPHALA
SAMSARA
CURSED TO LIVE AGAIN
IN ANOTHER SKIN

MY EVIL FORMS THAT HAVE COME BEFORE
PALE WHEN COMPARED TO THE COMING STORM
IN SAMSARA SINCE THE DAWN OF THIS WORLD
LIBERATION THROUGH ERADICATION OF HEAVEN AND HELL

DOCTRINE OF CERTAIN CONSEQUENCE
BREEDS UNHOLY PESTILENCE
TRANSMIGRATION OF THE SOUL
LAST LIFE RISE TO KILL YOU ALL

FINALLY FREE OF THE CHAINS ON ME
BEGIN A NEW LIFE OF TYRANNY
THEY’VE ALL GONE DOWN IN HISTORY
BUT THIS TIME I WILL END YOUR WORLD
MASS GENOCIDE

LAST THREAD SPUN, THE ULTIMATE ONE
END IS HERE
CAUGHT BY FATE IN A REALM OF HATE
SPREADING FEAR
BROUGHT, BACK AGAIN, BROKEN CHAINS
NOW I ENTER THIS FINAL LIFE
Track Name: A Thalidomide Child
BORN, MALFORMED
A FREAK, UNNATURAL SPAWN
THALIDOMIDE
ONE, PILL, THE INTERNAL WAR IS PACIFIED
QUIETS THE MIND, YOU’LL FIND THE PAIN SUBSIDES
BUT YOU’RE KILLING WHAT RESIDES INSIDE

HEY YOU, THALIDOMIDE KID
TELL US AGAIN ABOUT THE PAST LIVES YOU’VE LIVED
WE’RE ALL FREAKS, YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO PROVE
IN THE ZOO, WE’RE HERE TO SEE YOU

TELLING TALES OF RULING BEFORE
I WAS GREATNESS, I FOUGHT FOR THE LORD
A BODY BORROWED TO END ALL WE KNOW
YET NOW CONDEMNED TO THE FREAK SHOW

A KINK IN CLOTHO’S FINAL THREAD
APOCALYPSE UNRAVELLING FROM THIS FRAYED END
THE LAST LIFE, THE TRUEST TURN, AT HER WILL THIS WORLD WILL BURN
THE STRONGEST SOUL, OF THEM ALL, TO REIGN SUPREME AND KILL THEM ALL

THESE FIRES, YOU IGNITE
UPON THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT
WE’RE HERE, TO SEE YOU
ALL THE FREAKS, THEY WILL GO
TO SEE THE KLOTHO SHOW
WHERE THERE’S CHAOS ALL AROUND
GETTING TRAMPLED BY THE CROWD
WE’RE HERE, TO SEE YOU
EVERY VOICE IS SCREAMING LOUD
AND WE’RE DEAFENED BY THE SOUND
SEE RED, KILLING VIEW

THEY CAN’T FORGIVE
THE THINGS YOU DID
LAST CHANCE TO LIVE
THALIDOMIDE KID

A MORTAL SHELL FOR THIS SOUL TO DWELL
STRAPPED INTO THIS WALKING CELL
SENTENCED TO PROSTHETIC HELL
A VESSEL TO ASSIMILATE
NOW THIS WORLD WILL MEET ITS FATE

WITHIN THE BEAST BREWS IMMORTALITY

CORRUPTED SOUL, YOU’RE LOST IN THE MAZE OF THE NULL

FLAT-LINED, DEAD IN SURGERY
SEPARATION FROM THIS BODILY SANCTITY
NO WAY LEFT YOU CAN ATONE
ETERNAL STAIN LEFT ON YOUR SOUL
THE SENTENCE FOR YOUR TYRANNY
THE LIVES YOU’VE LIVED IN INFAMY
THE SIGHTS OF TERROR TO BEHOLD,
ACROSS THESE PLANES YOU CRAWL ON FLAMES

THE NULL KEEPS BURNING
SET FIRE TO THE SOUL
A PLACE SO MORBID
YOU LOSE CONTROL
NO ESCAPE
BURN IN THE FLAMES OF THE NULL

TORMENTED, IMPRISONED, DOWN IN THIS WORLD
THE TITANS AND PRISONERS THAT LUCIFER HOLDS
ALL YOU IMAGINED OF THIS TORTUROUS ABYSS
CAN’T COMPARE TO WHAT THE NULL INFLICTS
AGONY, MENTAL, PHYSICAL ABUSE
RESTRAINED FOR A LIFE TIME BY THE NOOSE
YOU’VE REACHED YOUR CYCLE’S FINAL TURN
PHOENIX FLAMES NO LONGER BURN

ALL SINS IN LIFE DESERVE PUNISHMENT
PROMISE THE THREAT OF ETERNAL TORMENT
DESTINATION OF A DAMNED SOUL’S DESCENT
LIES TOLD TO KEEP THE SHEEP OBEDIENT

THE WORLD OF NULL YOU CALL YOUR HOME
ALL TERRORS GONE UNTOLD
STENCH OF FLESH ROTS IN SWAMPS
ENSLAVED IN THE MAZE AS DEVILS HAUNT

RECHAINED
AGAIN
AS FEAR
IT REIGNS

NO CARDS TO PLAY ON YOUR FINAL DAY
MEPHISTO CRIES “YOU’RE HERE TO STAY”

DO A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL, SATAN HOLDS YOUR SOUL
AND ESCAPE THE NULL FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL

UNCHAINED
SHE REIGNS
Track Name: Wilted Rose
SKIN PORCELAIN WHITE
KISSED FROM THE AFTERLIFE
PIERCING BLUE GLARE
LIFELESS THEY STARE
ETHEREAL BEAUTY NOT MEANT FOR THIS WORLD
RAVENOUS SMILE
DRIPPING AND VILE
SYSTEM ANOMALY
SUBJECT HAS FAILED
CLAW LIKE HANDS SLASH AT YOUR THROAT
BEAST CRIES AGAINST THE SKY
FIRST WORDS ARE HEARD
DON'T LET ME DIE

AWAKEN THE GODDESS SO PURE
HER PHYSICAL FORM THE ALLURE
INSIDE SHE HAS SEEN THAT WHICH HAS NO REPRIEVE
SCARS THAT BURN DEEP IN THE NIGHT

ONCE THE MAIDEN, THE ARC
THE DIVINITY OF GOD WAS LOST IN THE NULL
ABOMINATION REBORN ENRAGED
REBORN TO WREAK TERROR
DESTRUCTION HER FINAL ENDEAVOUR
THIS CARNATION WILL BE A SWAN SONG
REDEMPTION THROUGH EVIL
DOUSE THE FLAMES OF THE SUN
CHILD OF RAGE

WILTED ROSE
YOUR BEAUTY BEFORE IS NOTHING BUT THORNS
WILTED ROSE
YOU'VE LIVED THROUGH THE STORM
BUT NOW YOUR PETALS ARE GONE

CHAOS IS WHERE YOU RESIDE
BROUGHT BACK, SENTENCED TO LIFE

KILLER OF THE SAVIOUR’S SON

SHUT THE GATES ON THIS LAST LIFE

NOTHING LEFT TO SEE
JUDGEMENT LAID ETERNALLY
REDEEMED THIS SOUL
BACK TO THE BLACK OF THE NULL
