Track Name: Soothsayer Worm
Fold into land
Crawl back to oceans

In crystal vaults and gold prisons
Pots of mud; vestigial tongues
Take these my witnesses
Burn the votives 

Each lunar cycle's crest
My lord is taken by seizures
And plucks his people's limbs
Without visible pretense 
With lecherous relish 

The mangroves drowned
The crane's beak trembled in my teeth
I drew the ire of the Father Star
And ribald jubilation of worms

The solid ground
Became dust beneath my feet 
And I gazed into a visage 
Made to resemble fear

Swallowed by dreams
I couldn't speak I couldn't eat
Amid foul murmurs demanding blood rivers

Fold into land
Crawl back to oceans

My king of late has not listened
Warnings fall upon earfuls of dung
The servants writhe with pestilence

Who will save them?
Track Name: Vessel
Sunken calls to you
Holy demons with drugs
Withdraw souls
I stowed my heart inside of a shell
Fetal before
A storm between my ears
What once held me up
Are daggers now
I stoked my hearth beside a great veil
Oh, I’ve seen God
I need...I seek...I beg for without

Deafening scrawl a timbre above pain
My limbs scrape
What I am without foot and hand
Is a violent pile
A vile pyre
Lusting for revenge
Contemning atonement

Crawling damned, tapered limbs
Sharpness through skin on stone
Walking damned with tapered limbs
Darkness is no more alone
Stalking damned, tapered limbs
As if the light had never shone
Track Name: Begotten Grimoire
BEGOTTEN GRIMOIRE

Wandering the blankening mutter wake
I feel nondescript
Trudging aimless
Something...some howl
Escaping now

Scorning, real
I seethe, shackled down
Fornicate with demons in this way
Until we part
You and I

Flux extant
Does the latent Wartorn-Brigadoon give to the world “Us”?
Raise, my dagger’s
Weight passes through all temporal barriers

The unspeakable fields
Immeasurable planes
Inexorable love
A void granting total embrace

Crushed beneath a primal wave
Reaching with a vivid red
To grant my descendants
Greater mysteries

Until we part
You and I
Track Name: I Climbed the Highest Dakhma to Find It
WASTING AWAY WITHIN
THIS CARAPACE OF DAYS
NO MORE THE MORTAL DISPLAYS
DISPLACED DESIRE'S BANE

TAINTED SACRED RITES
SORROW HATRED AND SPITE 

TORCHES LIKE SPIRITS ENSLAVED
CONDEMNED BY CAVE WALLS
PITILESS NIGHT SURROUNDING
FRAGMENTS OF TEMPORAL SPACE

TENEBROUS VIOLENT AND DEFT
SOMBER, MOROSE UNTIL THE ASCENT

WRITHING FEAR I SHEATH NOW
SILENCE FOR WHAT BENEATH HOWLS
A GRIN OF WISDOM
RESPLENDENT MOUTH

THE FERAL TORPOR ENVELOPES ME 

WASTING AWAY WITHIN
THIS CARAPACE OF DAYS
NO MORE THE MORTAL DISPLAY
DISPLACED DESIRE’S BANE
PITILESS NIGHT SURROUNDING
FRAGMENTS OF TEMPORAL SPACE

BY THE STARS
INUNDATED
FROM AN INCHOATE ESSENCE
I CLIMBED THE HIGHEST DAKHMA TO FIND IT
