Burn to my touch At my feet, incinerate Scorch both flesh and spirit Weep and falter Upon the lithic step Towards my burrow Vestigial blitheness Spawning mournful dreams Wiping the light from the sky Immerse with my sickness The suffering I radiate A beacon at the shores of hell Attached to the decline Lapse into decay Into the dismal circle Hell Writhing in hell Scorn In scorn at myself Die with me Fall with me Die with me Burn in me Die with me Burn in me Scorched is the mind Charred is the soul Scared is the thought Black turns the flesh Fall into My embrace Die with me I am the end

Pernicious world perception Cognition of symbols oblivious Fragments reassembled To a picture beyond this world The curse of carination Slow detachment The cord of apprehension Textures ever shifting Affliction, obsession of silence Reflection dolorous Her meaning of meaning Estrangement from being A new found logic Abides a realm beyond Constrained oblivion A world without mirrors Her meaning of meaning Abducted from seeing The hours sink to the ground And she is counting the bricks I still remember Cold January morning The world beneath a sheet of snow You would not stop screaming And thus you rejoice This river you just could not transcend Drawn towards the water Pulled beneath the waves Whispering from the depth A beckoning from the edge of the world And our songs Forever shrouded in mist Yet just for a blink I felt your presence here The hours sink to the ground And the hours sink to the ground

Toxic sermon Erratic and contagious Abscessic thoughts Raging through the aether Seraphic beauty obsolete A relic dream, pathetic and distant Hear them screaming for a new sovereign An idol to their likeness He shall come to bring salvation An icon for the crippled race A mirror to reflect their souls Disfigured God for distorted people Phocomelic Despair Syndactylic immersion of flesh Scoliotic rotten lord I beg thee To come forth From the womb Putrid pile, anal birth Hear them screaming for a new sovereign Dysmelian now walks the earth

Opaque clouds ensnare me Glaring stars shrouded Black breath whirling Feet sunken in sludge Soul leashed to a stick Embalmed in dejection Preserved tribulation Chrysalis surge From the maggot hatchery Beneath this hollow face Lie the answers to all questions But they are never asked And of no relevance Embalmed in dejection For aeons to come Painted in piss Glorious depiction of the vermin age And bound to death Be this entire breed Spawned by the maggot queen That lies entombed in this world Ancient soulless majesty Insatiable, gnawing, devouring all light Lux fiat! Her avarice everlasting

Ephemeral We must fade Ephemeral Withered shades Silent Falling leaves Longing for Breath to cease Life in itself Deteriorated Open those veins To purge this maze To end this haste Distant and cold Gathering clouds As autumn unfolds We are as water And life as a slope Death lingers on Through nights to come Ephemeral Nothing remains Ephemeral Even the pain

Gleam onto me Pass thy disdain Onto my misery Release me From the mirror My fiercest Enemy Lambaste me For I can see I am chosen Chosen Look at me Look at my pity Is this no relief? The riddance of dignity What is hollow cannot sink What is shapeless cannot break Bequeath me The blessing of shallowness My existence devoted As reflection of your emptiness
