The Death of Compassion

"The Death of Compassion" (2004)

1. Gods of Sin
2. Beneath the Cedar's Stare
3. Echoes in Eternity
4. Promised Land
5. Visions From the Past
6. Sacrament
7. Black Horizon
8. Enter Existence
9. Blood Culture







1. Gods of Sin

A single but common consciousness
Kills itself with a life of Sin
It follows a highly traveled path,
And plods the trail with unclean gait

It scavenges earth to discover a way
To sustain a life that is drained of soul
Now it surrenders to Gods of Sin
And lives the lie of eternal life

Now it seems as though your savior has passed away
Well it seems that those who followed
Have gone insane
Lives that live no more

A mind stripped of its right to think
Continues to pray to the Gods of Sin
No longer a mind, or life to live
Only a state of existence

Dead flesh clings to life
And drags me into night

Now it seems as though your savior has passed away
Well it seems that those who followed
Have gone insane
Lives that live no more

Into your savior's arms to die some more
And those who die today, all died before

Into your savior's arms to die some more
And those who die today, I watched die before




2. Beneath the Cedar's Stare

Hear My - Shattered Cries
Upon programmed ears fall these tragic lies

Deceiver - Of Mankind
A Rapist of the truth adapting prophetic rhymes

You are the self acclaimed
Father of all lies
The God of wicked games
It's here where darkness lies

Our Hell - Lies Within
Reason and true knowledge are disguised as sin

Mystify - With poison words
Snakes drawn, captivate the blind herd

This is my resolution
You've all been blinded
Denied the depth of evolution
Systematic, denied reality

Sickness and hate
Poured into these lines
A never ending game
A torrent of lies

Upon his lofty throne you lay
You'll live your life another day
For so many years, you've been asleep
Unaware of the evil that you seek
Salvation is hell, forgiveness a loss
The last one of you, he died on the cross
The number you fear is not of the beast
It's one, the human mind released

See the fine print
Read through the lines
It's reality untouched
Transparent, denied




3. Echoes in Eternity




4. Promised Land

Oceans of fire filled the sky
And forced me to make up my mind

Tortured and dying and killed for too long
I vow that I will not stay
Whispers and promises of paradise lost
Echoed but now fade away

I walked the path of life
But slowed my pace to see
If my path was right
And what was meant to be

Light of Day upon me
Helps me find my way
And helps to justify the loss
For those who die today

My fate has yet to guide me
And take me by the hand
And bring to life forsaken dreams
Lead me to the Promised Land




5. Visions From the Past

Rise,
By my fate
And die by my hate
Lies, fueled my rage
Inside,
Is this war we wage
This retribution has become my fate
And soon youíll see, whatís yet to be

The death of compassion is mine
The threat of diffusion will be thine

This sudden fury has filled my circumjacence with rage and hate

Waking up my dormant
Visions from the Past
Shall sow dark seeds of vengeance
Here to stay at last
I can see the future
And itís darkened by the last
Waking of my dormant
Visions from the past




6. Sacrament

The perfect wrong
To run your life's itinerary sacrifice
A revelation, a condemnation
Wraps your soul in lies
There's no exit from this torment
Unreason bound by sacrament
She rips through his eternity
Confounding throughtwave frequency

A torn suture
A blinding dark, descrete
Coal for the future
Self severance is complete

A lifetime of death
Just waits to escape
The gaping wounds of formalized rape
Watch your seed become your sun
Corrupted angel, fallen one
Reconstruct infinity
Write the wrong divinity
A revelation, a condemnation
Wraps your soul in lies

A torn suture
A blinding dark, descrete
Coal for the future
Self severance is complete

The blackest shadow
Kills the light with life
Don't fear the rattle of the serpent
Fear the knife

Don't be afraid To bleed the hands that needs you
Lie




7. Black Horizon




8. Enter Existence

The second hand stays still
And waits for me until
The duty to act, to try and succeed
Fills me with hope, the lie that I need
The wind it blows my way
There's nothing here today
To set my mind off of its course
To put me astray
As I Enter Existence


I left my loves behind
In hopes that I would find
The substance, from which I was made
But filled my void
With failure and hate
I found what I had sought
Was not what I had thought
It would be, a ba'al of gold
An image of me, unhappy and old


My mind strives, to understand
Why I lied
To those who joined me


Nothing has strayed me from
My true course
I had to try
I had to die
To realize my fate
My service to mankind
Has killed a part of my soul
I swallow my hopes
Embrace my fears
Since pain, is all that I know


Enter Existence


Nothing has strayed me from
My true course
I had to try
I had to die
To realize my fate.
My service to mankind
Has killed a part of my soul
I swallow my hopes
Embrace my fears
Since pain, is all that I know




9. Blood Culture

Rising out from the desert
Mana - from heaven like snow
Blood plagues the sands of the desert
Carnage is all I know

Hell's fires rage in the desert
A white flash of light proves this so
Sand melts to glass in the desert
And violence is all I know

The carnage and the chaos bleed through the wall
For all the world to see
This blood,
It stains my culture,
It drips down my throat
And takes control of me

Blood reigns from high in Golgotha
The sacred land buried in death
Reincarnate my body
Sacrifice all of the rest

The carnage and the chaos bleed through the wall
For all the world to see
This blood,
It stains my culture,
It drips down my throat
And takes control of me
