Track Name: Unstoppable
UNSTOPPABLE
freeze the lightning • pause the thunder • stare then rewind • bloom again • these messiahs of destruction damn the faithless shadow men • how can I feel sorry for you? • how can you not see this end? • if you'd read the authors I've read, you'd see why I can't pretend • unstoppable • unavoidable • matter of time • unthinkable • unbelievable • so cry the blind • there's a science to prediction • odds collapsing into fate • if we descend underground • live to one day live again • stillborn as a new religion • disbelieved before it's born • I believe this has to happen • I'll survive to save you all
Track Name: Ahrriss the Wizard
AHRRISS THE WIZARD
cryptic incantations churn behind the eyes • needling the spiral, spellbooks in disguise • smoking in the half-light, tugging on his beard • conjured apparition, cast and disappeared • splinters of a wracked wand circumscribe the ground • potions of devotion, fire pouring down • casting via gesture, spelling without words • summoning commotion • rolling fourths and thirds • alive in this world of symbol and phrase, Ahrriss the Wizard holds you in his sway
Track Name: Animals of Romance
ANIMALS OF ROMANCE
lies • harmless lies to seduce and construe • truth is the last thing that I want from you • ask for it, plead for it, beg me to do those secret things that we shared in our youth • some little pain, first it hurts then it's good • drives us insane like I knew that it would • hard, realized, in control, in a trance • die synchronized • animals of romance • fill every hole • forcing inside • out of control • flawed by design • climax of roles • less than the sum • coming to go • going to come
Track Name: Stray Demon
STRAY DEMON
I'm falling backwards into history • disprove the future from the past • slaughtering nations with impunity • all I survey is mine at last • I topple mountain ranges • stretch forth my hand and boil the seas • did God intend me a mass-murderer? • theodicy's most awesome test • am I not proof of heaven's apathy? • or am I God made manifest? • no mercy, no forgiveness • humanity's abandonment • I despise your lives • angels will punish me for centuries • my immortality is safe • I'll be reviled for all eternity • he who deformed the human race • they'll speak my name in whispers • but curse their maker for their pain • I despise your lives
Track Name: Hidden Switch
HIDDEN SWITCH
a hidden switch is flipped • a nerve has bitten down • a permanent alarm • a static piercing sound • inverted pedal tone • infuriating noise • interminable climax • instills what it destroys • can't say that you weren't warned • a warning you ignored • the cost of all that volume • is silence nevermore
