Track Name: Amentia
Brain dead and comatose, incapable of reason
Adept in anything and everything
Inhaling fumes of burning desire
Lacerating flesh relentlessly
Full of poison
Ready to infect everyone
Your perfume fills my lungs
Drowning in solitude
Pray for nothing
Prey everyone
We understand what we had only when we're deprived of it
Are we condemned to be?
Are we just instants of eternity?
Meaningless and undeserving
Bearers of evil and plagues.
Waiting as my fingers carve deep furrows in my head
I wear proudly my regret as a second skin
Capable of anything and everything
Lost in the depths of an unknown's eyes
Trying to comprehend every emotion.
Experiment the darkness.
Speak in silence, hear the noise of nothingness.
Breath deeply.
Tomorrow won't come.
Everything becomes nothing.
Forever ends.
Track Name: Crepuscular
The scent of rotting time
Entices the vultures 
To feast upon our marrow
We sit silenced by the blinding dusk of an age
Where every form draws back
Trapped in matter
There is no conflict
Only chasms
Of spiraling nothingness
Is there a home we belong to?
Are we just shadows?
Are we just the shades
We see gliding through these walls?
Forsaken into the deepest gray
Hoping for the day when we'll be
Diving into pure energy
Fettered into the dark of this cave
Despite our exile
Our will shall rise
Track Name: De.Cosnstruct
Sliding through this earth
We encounter existence
Only to face supreme indifference
Such is the path to reach a true equality
We will throw arrows
Aiming for what's bound to hide
Once again they'll sink into water
For in the mirror where we seek
Even semblance fades
Fated to find ourselves
Once we're truly lost
So we'll be called to perceive
The totality
Accept life as an exception of cosmic impassivity
Through this all-embracing decay
We construct our meaning
Our conscious shall gush into a tree of absurdity
Celebrating perpetual recurrence
Now burn
Become light
Deflagrate the borders of reality
Track Name: Immanence
Truth must be kept veiled
Drowning in complexity
Brimming with void
Devoured by doubt
You're bound to fall as we all are
You will strive for an answer
I will seek for a sense
We shall pray for this emptiness to be filled
The axe of wisdom falls right through my neck
Desecrating every last taste of vitality
You're compromising, disgracing the last drops of a source
The source of a circle I thought I could close
Eternally you shall strike against yourself
Convictions will drag you into failure
Face that we're not meant to understand

Track Name: Can'-Ka No Rey
Senses' curtain is thin
you can pretend nothing's wrong
Wake and ignore
The clipping border of your mirror
The mid-day deja-vù
Don't you ever think how diaphanous
is the time we're ruminating?
You lose track of the days
In consuming your nails
Scratching away the plaster
Carving preposterous charades
Once you realize you possess no more evidence
Will your questions truly be worth?
It's a path that leads to the red fields of none
And you will find that blooms and breeds
Do nothing but spinning round
Like the worlds anchored to our feet
Track Name: Mechanical
Mesmerize me with your chant
Kill me with your voice          
I'll fall as everyone
I'll be the first to rise in torment
 Fingers glide on me
So real they seem to sink
Into this skin of mine
And vanish within
Blessed be the poison that runs through my veins
I am back from depths
I can hear the scream of this world
Why don't you make you own move?
Staring at this walls
Carrying the screams of them all
Standing in balance
Out and away
Reset your eyes
Erase your mind
You are the plague
That infests your own flesh
Realize it will never be the same again
Reset your eyes
Erase your mind
Running away from a place where everyone is exiled
Trapped in a weak mind
Hampered by stereotypes
We are our own obstacle
The hidden daylight
Above the laden clouds
Glare of gray
Chewed and spat
In a cold and far desert
The dying rain carves on my faces
Thousand names of thousand victims
Make your own move
Become a machine
Track Name: Equilibrium
I am
I have understood the equivalence of life and death.
A new beginning from a new end leads to the same conclusion.
I am
Destined to die before even being conceived.
Product of an equation solved billions of times before.
The illusion of a choice to relieve pain
When the same pain we try to relieve is an illusion itself
Become conscious.
Accept your failure.
Behold the void.
Understand there's nothing else.
Rejoice at her sight.
Wiped out in a blink of an eye.
Torn out with mechanical precision.
We are all victims of an equilibrium
Which cannot be unbalanced.
I am dead.
Track Name: S.I.N.
We are sinking headfirst in self-nourishing progress,
Now stuffed with self-righteous bioethics.
In recursion, growth is fast.
Applied to man, it's a concept dangerously close
To autosarcophagy.
How long do you think it will take?
In recursion, growth will be fast
Since this seed will be planted.
And the harvest will belong to us
For better or for worse.
Behold the branches of the new evolution.
We'll burrow the alcoves of knowledge,
We'll find the keys.
Every door will be opened
Each hall revealed.
Passed throughout the threshold,
A precise proceeding.
Conception, amelioration, mutualism, merging.
Eventually, the failure of restraint.
Track Name: Disclosure
We have no masters
Give up your old skin
It's time for a change.
Molecules are recombining.
So take off your mask
And let's celebrate the disclosure of your mind.
Either thinking or believing.
Give up your old skin
It's time for a change.
Molecules are recombining.
A self made mechanism of imperfection
Striving to achieve self consciousness
The chance to understand
The possibility of failure
The gift of learning
Echoes from a past of torturing void
Resonate in this new and unknown dimension
A voice with no face
Is lost in time and inner space

Track Name: Exist
Alone in time.
We have failed where we would have to succeed.
We have lost what we would have to keep.
Alone in time.
Standing still while everything is falling apart.
Regurgitated by this ground that hates us.
Damned since the first wailing.
Raised in sensorial atrophy.
Writer of changes, deceiver.
Judge of lives, executor.
Breath in life, breath out dust.
Fear as a shelter, hate as a weapon.
Rise up.
