Track Name: Smoldering Embers
Worldeater- swallower of worlds and devourer or the biosphere:
my wounds are salted by every lapsing second
of thy malevolent subsistence.
The earth is darker than conception, and yet the lights never fade.
False stars cast forged light across the faces of hollow, ecclesiastic deities.

May you wade through the entrails of your enemies.
The drought earth thirsts for man's blood
Nefarious whittling in the worship of progress...

The last communities dance with the guile of wraiths,
drowning in miserable rebellion,
wading through the entrails of an artificial beast.
Ancient fires are eclipsed,
but never are they extinguished
as the embers of atavism smolder.

Redemption is a ship sunk thousands of years ago:
New beginnings must be found.
Track Name: Anamnesis II: A Dry, Sterile Thunder, Without Rain
...And the feeling body shudders and lurches on the edge
Quaking with dead inertia- a caged oak
suppressed from the instant that seed took root
in earth the promised of a monolith.
All I see are saplings shackled to stone
a genocide of all we've sown.

I am waiting for the great abate
Thunder claps, but no water falls.
Thunder claps, and no water will fall.

Shattered Ouroboros: I feel the mountain within;
the sea, the soil, the sky;
Suffocating under ten-millennia coil:
Shattered Ouroboros.

I call thee, hark...
Devoid of metamorphosis, twisted larvae starve.
Megaflora extinction, an era of gynocide.
I call thee, hark Ares! I call thee, hark...
Apocalyptic atavism!

"Here, one can neither stand, nor lie, nor sit. There is not even silence in the mountains, but dry, sterile thunder, without rain."
I await the flood in rusting chains,
for a fertile thunder that reeks of rain.
