I can not be this monster, nihilistic disease I've held this impulse at bay, my god won't you help me please Under this flesh you hide in, abomination Let it rip through your skin, this aberration Set it free, let it rip through your skin, demoniacal, sacrificial set it free Slay them as your want requires butchering Stronger these impulses are to me We won't be stopped by fear of reprisal We won't be stopped by fear of reprisal Set it free, let it rip through your skin, demoniacal, sacrificial set it free Know thyself, let the hate flow through you Becoming the darkness in light If you believe -then have your god save you Religion dressing filth in white I can not be this monster, nihilistic disease I've held this impulse at bay, my god won't you help me please Know thyself, let the hate flow through you Becoming the darkness in light If you believe -then have your god save you Religion dressing filth in white We won't be stopped by fear of reprisal We won't be stopped by fear of reprisal

Beaten and battered they lay Punish the swine that they be Words used to wound and to stab So I stabbed them repeatedly This pain will never fucking end Unless you're reduced to Forever pretend Burial Ground My sacred fortress How sweet is the sound Burial Ground Part soil with shovel Surrender you now Midnight moonlight The dark now reclaimed feeble the humanity In rotted decay Reap the soulless cattle Torture into purity screams in the shadows This pain will never fucking end Unless you're reduced to Forever pretend Burial Ground My sacred fortress How sweet is the sound Burial Ground Part soil with shovel Surrender you now In this twilight The stench permeates Reminiscing on the ground Your blood and its fate Break bone and marrow Cleanse this evil From within you now!

Burn, let the meaningless mass Of these humans wither and rot While making the futile attempt At becoming a useless decadent lot They cast me from their precious circle To fall yet from grace once more But slicing their throats and burning their flesh will console me forevermore... I long to release these dark compulsions of sin That have grown within me To not want to see them suffer With a brutal ecstasy Don't let them see Through your mask of sanity Your decaying dark black heart is waiting For another victim's scream Slicing, burning, stinking putrid pile of my domain Submit to my will or suffer the endless torture of my domain Submit to my will or suffer the endless torture That runs through my veins Don't let them see Through your mask of sanity Your decaying dark black heart is waiting For another victim's scream

All lyrics by Aaron King Covenant beware, there is a beast among the land (He comes to devour you all) If they only knew what hides behind this cunning smile (The beast is me) I am the betrayer of the brethren Liar, deceiver, your own personal Judas If they only knew the beast was me The sheep adorn the Sheppard Like winter adorns the snow Protector from the wolf Lo and behold, the wolf lives inside of me Now lay me down to sleep I pray my soul to keep The congregation now awaits my hypocrisy A lust for murder rests inside this withered heart Lift one hand to worship and hide the knife in the other Leading the blind Open up your eyes There is a killer in us all

To begin the dissection, the puncture has to be profound The open then the cavity exposed, releasing air pungent and foul Challenging this dead tissue, muscle spasms, rigid to the touch Rigor sets in, the blade is too thin, The ax is needed for a forceful crush I am your always humble servant The one, wielding your blade Consumption Embraced I am your always humble servant The one, wielding your blade Consumption Embraced To cut away the dead skin To peel away the flesh Like your sin To cut away the dead skin To peel away Like a sin To begin the dissection, the puncture has to be profound The open then the cavity exposed, releasing air pungent and foul Challenging this dead tissue, muscle spasms, rigid to the touch Rigor sets in, the blade is too thin, The ax is needed for a forceful crush I am your always humble servant The one, wielding your blade Consumption Embraced

All lyrics by Felipe Otero and Christian Olmeda I woke up this morning Ready to see them die I can't wait much longer I have to see them suffer now This is the day I've been waiting And it feels like a lifetime No more waiting Now you will pay Your blood in my hands Is what i crave This is all bloodshed Bodies laying everywhere This is massacre went on for hours No one in sight was safe All guts no glory Spread through ground and earth No matter how good or bad You're as good as dead People running everywhere Panic consuming their mind They don't know how to explain All the savage array Has God abandoned us Some would say Maybe there was no God to begin with Pray all that you can And see who saves your life Today I'll feed that purge Tomorrow more will die. Let bleed our future This darkness We will not survive In this awakening Let us decide This darkness We will not survive Let them pray, let them plead This darkness We will not survive And if we let them sacrifice, This darkness We will not survive Perhaps if we surrender our will, The darkness We will not survive Let them pray, let them plead This darkness We will not survive

Dwelling in the mind of a psychopath Your darkest obsessions so vile Such brutality No humanity And this fever drives me to defile Cut away this shell Hollow and cracked in its core To be a good son, the favorite one, Fermenting within all the more Dwelling in the mind of a psychopath Follow me into the darkness Dwelling in the mind of a psychopath Cut away this shell Hollow and cracked in its core To be a good son, the favorite one, Fermenting within all the more Dwelling in the mind of a psychopath Follow me into the darkness Dwelling in the mind of a psychopath Obey your blood thirst Dwelling in the mind of a psychopath The dark obsessions are so vile I see myself through this shell Facade that fades, so back to it's place I see myself through this shell But my nature, it calls me once again, Cynical, sinister, my only blackened friend But my nature, it calls me once again, Dwelling... Follow me into the darkness Dwelling... It calls me once again...

I am consumed The Revelation I need to butcher life To feed my evil soul I am consumed The revelation Suffer the fate and eradicate All these beating hearts Carving to bone I feed Find the most pleasure Never again deny, never negate the joy of hearing my victim's screams I am consumed The revelation I need to butcher life And feed my evil soul I am consumed The revelation All these beating hearts Carving to bone I find the most pleasure Never alone Sever to deploy with no constraint Feed my evil soul Masses: the world will bleed Masses: the world will bleed Feed my evil soul My revelation Suffer the fate and eradicate All these beating hearts Feed my evil soul
