Track Name: Cells of Angels
Gazing on a desolate horizon
souls seek to be changed
inversion and deification
waging war of the self: to be torn

robed in black

made from dirt and made from clay
one part form and one part wraith
one to work and one to pray
seeking life, through death and pain
hearts consumed light and by grace
inversion of time and space

across the barren deserts and dry places
they wait to do battle and offer praises
inward motion, a petrification
a removal of all complacent
at the edge of shadow and flame
purified through loss and shame
across the frozen tundra and plains
they wait to do battle and offer praises
Track Name: Darkness of the Divine
fall and die
all hope in tongues guise
bleak and dead
reject your senses
nameless, formless, ageless, tameless

moses rise
consume all forms of light
bleak and dead
reject your knowledge
nameless, formless, ageless, tameless
three without divide

we are one, as the sun
seething and breathing
sowing and knowing
seeking and reaping

hidden life, revealed in death
no eye seen, no ear heard yet
beg for life and pray for your death
