Track Name: Amidst the Ashes
The darkest new moon night beckons me
In its veil of harrows
The woeful depths of phantasmagoric gloom
I reap the horrid screams
From those lost in my darkest dreams
Unforgotten victims of this, my vampyric disease
Abhorrence, I see only you cast with me
Until I reach
The impending pyre built for my demise

This day it came with harkening scorns
That yearned for more as I languished at Carpathian shores
In death’s embrace my face shunned from this world
A pariah amidst the pyre’s blinding thorn

A miscarriage into massacre
Into the pyre’s reign
In the all consuming fire
I’ll never be the same
Sifting through the ashes
A makeshift bed to lay
After this my final day
I’ll walk the earth again
…Once again

I will kill everyone; I will kill every one of you

This day it came with harkening scorns
That yearned for more as I languished at Carpathian shores
In death’s embrace my face shunned from this world
A pariah amidst the pyre’s blinding thorn

A miscarriage into massacre
Into the pyre’s reign
In the all consuming fire
I’ll never be the same
Sifting through the ashes
A makeshift bed to lay
After this my final day
I’ll walk the earth again
…Once again

Amidst the ashes of this charred disgusting mortal shell
Rises the incarnation from the darkest depths of hell
I bring forth the fall of idols from my lord below
The burning of man, the plague that god bestowed

A miscarriage into massacre
Into the pyre’s reign
In the all consuming fire
I’ll never be the same
Sifting through the ashes
A makeshift bed to lay
After this my final day
I’ll walk the earth again
…Once again
Track Name: Freeman's Cure
Scream and choke upon your barbed tongue
You malicious depraved beast
I'll transcend science and exalt the horrors
Among the baron diseased

The callous wounds that throttled secrets
Never to divulge my perfection, exemplified
Bedlamite swine, damned to suffer
Just another pawn in the ascent of lobotomy

It must be a shame to suffer as a deranged
Alas, my needle holds the way
I don't require much all I need is your brain
That's not a stretch for the insane

Show me one lost to insanity and I'll show you
A victim ready for electroconclusive therapy
No anesthesia present here in my operation
One who's unconscious doesn't deserve sedation

Drifting into darkness right before my eyes
An animated carcass just holding onto life
A newly catatonic being unable to cry
So close to death, this lowly soul will writhe

I am the elite, the sacred, the pure
Fathering my progeny of the obscure
I've procreated a ghost, a sore
A pitiful creation that i abhor

I Abhor

Your heart's still beating but you're as good as dead
A still living corpse sustained by borrowed breath
Your existence is one of my design
A spiteful mockery of your former life
By my hands you'll meet your hopeless fate
And spend your last days as the walking dead
My legacy will live long after me
I have created the legion of the damned


Drifting into darkness right before my eyes
An animated carcass just holding onto life
A newly catatonic being unable to cry
So close to death, this lowly soul will writhe

I am the elite, the sacred, the pure
Fathering my progeny of the obscure
I've procreated a ghost, a sore
A pitiful creation that i abhor
Track Name: Odium's Insignia
Disowned, lies a dismal carcass
Bound to my new beginning
In this, a purged catharsis
My corpse of irony’s rendering
Adorned with cowl contortions
Incisions from my wake
The remains of a hollowed distortion
A penance paid, again

Distilled beneath the freezing moon
A divine carcass lies frozen in time
Fragments of murder in a cadaverous swoon
Dyed limbs taint the odious state of sublime

Foul with the stench of decay
An eviscerated body lies in waste
Hoar frost to cleanse the stains
Of the dismembered and unchaste

And as I open my eyes
To visions of a carnal sway
I remember all the cries
Of this maddening disdain
Abomination, I plead for you
Amidst your acrid gates
I’ll tear them from their last breath
To cleanse them of their stains
O horror of horrors
Wretched in this den of sin
A contorted carcass
Of torn limbs and jaded skin
And this my crest of night
Above my friend of spite
I've held you to the end
Bloodletting Sacrifice

Bemoaned, this wintry darkness
Disfigured in my dawn of bereavement
Petrified in this abysmal carcass
Like the wraiths in judecca’s torment
Abhorred with squalid lacerations
In this odious state of mine
I try to cleanse the stains
Of this putrid stench of mankind

And as I open my eyes
To visions of a carnal sway
I remember all the cries
Of this maddening disdain
Abomination, I plead for you
Amidst your acrid gates
I’ll tear them from their last breath
To cleanse them of their stains
O horror of horrors
Wretched in this den of sin
A contorted carcass
Of torn limbs and jaded skin
And this my crest of night
Above my friend of spite
I've held you to the end
Bloodletting Sacrifice

Desolate in this crest of misanthropy
I sway in the arctic dirge of abhorrence
And yet I remain damned with the essence I detest
A morbid rendition of a sordid depiction
Self inflictions adorned with a carnal addiction
This chastened affliction of my murderous scorn

This is absolution
Purified in dissolution

And as I open my eyes
To visions of a carnal sway
I remember all the cries
Of this maddening disdain
Abomination, I plead for you
Amidst your acrid gates
I’ll tear them from their last breath
To cleanse them of their stains
O horror of horrors
Wretched in this den of sin
A contorted carcass
Of torn limbs and jaded skin
And this my crest of night
Above my friend of spite
I've held you to the end
Bloodletting Sacrifice
Track Name: Darkly Dreaming
Concealed within the shadows of the dark
Upon this night I await another
Caitiff blood shall stain my hands again
Subdue and obtain without hesitation
Embrace the force of the Dark Passenger
Scars of its inner voice I cannot mend

Split the fragile bones
Of this wretched human plague

With gloved hands I separate
Poised above you bound beneath
My scalpel, eternally condemned
Dissection, of sinew and flesh
In this night of unbridled massacre
This ravenous urge will never end

Nocturnal symphony how sweet you beckon me
Into the darkness, the depths of sadist dreams
Vexation of horrors strung by my razor’s gleam
Dissected into nothing more than another tragedy
Fragile pieces bound tight never to be seen again
Into the ocean’s throat to revel with my other sins
Forever you shall remain with me in a blooded slide
A part of the dark passenger that keeps me dead inside

We’ve gone too far
Into the depths of this sordid miscreation
Somatically incorrect lies this horrid abomination
Humanity’s neglect reflected by those misconstrued
I reign to reap the souls of those chosen few

You shall heave beneath me, your final breathe
The end of a lowly heap of flesh and scorn
Upon the surmounting body, the nearing stench of death
Deluged, I feel reborn

Concealed within the shadows of the dark
Upon this night I await another
Caitiff blood shall stain my hands again
Subdue and obtain without hesitation
Embrace the force of the Dark Passenger
Scars of its inner voice I cannot mend

Nocturnal symphony how sweet you beckon me
Into the darkness, into the depths of sadist dreams
Vexation of horrors strung by my razor’s gleam
Dissected into nothing more than another tragedy
Fragile pieces bound tight never to be seen again
Into the ocean’s throat to revel with my other sins
Forever you shall remain with me in a blooded slide
A part of the dark passenger that keeps me dead inside

Into the depths of this sordid miscreation
Somatically incorrect lies this horrid abomination
Humanity’s neglect, personified by those misconstrued
I reign to reap the souls of those chosen few

You shall heave beneath me, your final breathe
The end of a lowly heap of flesh and scorn
Upon the surmounting body, the dearing stench of death
Deluged, I feel reborn
