Track Name: Chattering Medicine
i
see a way
we can restore clarity
the laughing skull
touches my lips
threatens to seduce me

grinning jaw in the darkness

blessed are we
to take this storm
to shackle it
in his name
blessed are we
to split the heart
a landscape
wreathed in flame

i have prepared for a lifetime
of madness
i have tasted the saliva
of night's mouth dripping for the end

chattering medicine
a cure for the common age
of kali yuga
swarming upon the heretics
let death speak my name
chattering medicine
a cure for the common age
of kali yuga
invert nirvana

i am become
the destroyer of worlds
i am become
the burning saint
i am become
avatar of wrath
i am become
what was foretold in tears
Track Name: Indecipherable Scripts
tis a rapture, they wail, mistaking genocide for his glory
for his blessings of grandeur, they howl at starless skies
when the smoke clears and the cinders burn down
they appear aghast at their efforts
"where is he, where is our prize?"

in the tomb
blessed are we
to take their words
and become as them
ancient tongues
composed of sounds
from underneath
the burial shroud

through words unspoken
through deeds undone
we light the way
to paths unknown

translation of forgotten heresies
indecipherable scripts
a proclamation of dreaming plagues
indecipherable scripts

translation of forgotten heresies
indecipherable scripts
a proclamation of dreaming plagues
indecipherable scripts
grasping the throat of spiritual misery
indecipherable scripts
a civilization forgotten, reduced to ashes
Track Name: The Heaving Passage
a writhing curse
a desperate cry
sand shook loose
from the walls
burying all
within the tomb
the last of man
within the earth

alive
and dead

in candles' light
they read the words
from long ago
whisper his name

drowning underneath
the remains of man
forgotten hollows
host a barren land
mocking rituals
pervert the signs
blessed be the child
born without knowledge of night

the gift of life a curse
Track Name: The Rajmata and the Noose
oh bride, steal my corpse
transform my will towards your essence
rajmata, my mistress
twine my limbs tightly to yours

guide me towards judgment
a path i have known
oh my vain angel
beckon to me
i embrace your blindness
replace my eyes with yours

drink from me oh mother of night
and touch me with words of your poison
expel from me all traces of light
and reform my bones in your image

a divine mother withers
in light's glow, a pillar of salt
excitement implores me to tremble
as i take your crown
Trepidation be dammed
Take me to my holy land
where only death resides

give way unto death as death is given to you
