Hate, pain and fun Maniacal laughter Blood red Skies Dust, fuel and fire I want you all Crushed under my boots My eyes are burning Hatred dissolves me What a lovely day! What a lovely day! Take me! Take me! Take me! Take me! Aye! SHRED THE FUCKING SHED! released on April 20th of 2021

SHIPWRECK 15:31
Sailed the seven seas And preyed treasures on vengeance Under deck they hid Patrons of resentments Bound to be your compass Needles point at your grave Chained there is no way back For your sins you never regret Our sails will show the way To your failure Close yet far away Stitches of their tailors Shut your mouth you're fake Hollow shell made of clay With a sword in mouth waiting For a chance to betray on me Went the long way down And preached it's wonders, lies Kept beneath the ground You're severed from your gain's price So chitter back on land and Boast as if your great (as long you can!) Scared won't say you're tasteless Distant off the sea's face No will to reach the destinated Patient stay to rob the desecrated All blind to feel your heart right Ever in anger you favor flight And now you're free to hang Upside down as it's meant Pendulous your skin teared Draping our ship's sails Seems like them lost treasury keys Were in your own hands Evil seems embellishing So does the rest feel Kept this desperate last way out Take a glance out of your sight Try to fly like time Change this meaningless direction Closer to the inside Tell me how it feels Bleeding off the skies high Your inner life's displayed A lair for lies and prejudice Sown the seed of hatred Of broken mirrors you will fail Future plans past Visions that you saw didn't last Figurative, vain And literally dead meat Shattered as you wished Gone in the MAELSTROM! The winds will carry salt Swallows, crows, and an albatross The kraken tear you down Sharks and cancers guts out Sold sanity, lost your face Left a trace on your reflection But not on your self Take a glance out of your sight Try to fly like time Change this meaningless direction Closer to the inside Ask the siren, ask the sea Ask your tendency Silenced by illusions Closed eyes, nosebleed Insist rules Initiative down Changing nothing Divisible guilt Invisible chains All for none Lodges for the high Spades for the low Crave, crawl, crave more Down to sea depth's ground! Last remains This violent sleep Screams of silence Divisable guilt Invisible chains Altar of pain Seems like life means To trust instincts To choose directions Seems like these affections Keep a link alive Keep this silent connection Take a glance out of your sight Try to fly like time Change this meaningless direction Closer to the inside Ask the siren, ask the sea Ask your tendency Silenced by illusions Closed eyes, nosebleed

TRAILBOUND 08:09
The bat that had been hanging Asleep inside the dark Fell on Earth tonight Observed, deserved, delivered Watching from the sky Smell woke up the deed A shadow in the water A trace a path a trail Smell woke up the deed Descendant of the river Rearranged the round Weight down, left, right, red Came to late The broken shade, The ship has made The ocean slave Dying crabs in waters Sharks and Kraken starve The crew's untouched As it kills again Conscience blank Beasts of land Drown their wrath In decadence Thousand arms, yet one mind Serving life they are Falling slaves To these dog men Maze amaze Activate Risen graves Red round Work for me Agony Lost the bet To my baits Forced to stay And stayed to wait The ship has made Death a maid Starving men in fires Captain's roll, but higher Lives get maimed as they Fade away Cleansed the land For lives lost sand Their Heritage Lost Species Blood lust grown Caged in no release The Winds blow and turn The priest to stone Mesmerized Anubis Finish this Trail bound Bloods bow Shattered night Source god Fly high Moonlight night Shrine of fire Flight of life Shrine of fire Moonlight night Shrine of fire Flight of life Dead amazed Snails in haze At higher haste In dread rounds Shrine of fire Moonlight night Shrine of fire Flight of life Icarus In the heat of schemers Struggling with the mess The curse of dark and excess Remain Silent waiting for the whisper Of your guide To take you down in sunshine Get lost From these sticky lands of mires You'll get lost As your beacon lost it's fire Embrace Deadly livings in delusions Drown and boil In Anger and it's delight

COINAGE 07:59
Eternal darkness A future opaque Is the Draw of those that will rise Of those that are down Taken away Charming Gift of highness Forever Starve in black The void is a part of you Be aware of the echo The presage of misery The Carrier of agonies Never she'll be in sight Forever inside Of your mind Hallucinations Blurring Imaginations Into Reality For the Fate of your soul Fight! Bound By chains of a mortal body Kill yourself Now Kill your self 'Cause Coins Reign On Coin Slaves 'Cause Coinage Kills Bleed for my greed Freed you'll never be Bleed for my needs Lie to yourself We don't need this shit Don't let it in your mind 'Cause Suffering It will Bring Trust me I've been through This shit Struggled To convince my self That you're more than a nasty liar Changing your stories in thr blink of an eye Faking reality You turn to grime what's made of passion Seems like this reached an end Exposed Finally Free From these toxic thoughts Remorse won't take you away No it won*t The Poison will not Kill your pain It will not Blindness is what it endorses Feeding us lies Seems to be it's greatest High Dread fed by those that it coins So Buddy, Kill your self 'Cause Coinage Kills.

HELLFIRE 18:02
I have seen You agitate, spread Lies With a smile in your face And how you mask them You are know to suffocate Again you will never Dictate, enslave, and betray Now we chime Guarded by The Angels of the light While you drown in lies Justice striking You're no gem You're a faker An Imaginator A traitor Bleed, starve, and cry Look into the Abyss' eyes Effigy of hate, disdain Preserving, creating The extract, distilled war machine Follow bravely The moon at night Effigy of yore reflections Our rising Our glowing Our fading back Enraged in Chains A shell in agony Dulled I'm burning There's no escape nor can I feel free Tell me, show me The way out of this pit No joy, no down I can't feel alive You place your visions atop Humans in motion Your fancy's corrupted Vain, and obstructed You fear our reason Our verification You keep pig-headed This reality rejected Hid in the ocean Had no time to drown or breath air Run to the forest Trust me Cesar's Crown will be your fate Freshness surrounds me As the cold wind blows the weary hills Fly to the fields crow Join the bugs and mourn the harvest Hate and be hated Love and beloved Deny this Life It's Suicide To deny this life Still caged No release Can't you see that I'm burning? Hate tamed Not free Living from these cravings Tell me Show me The way out of this pit No Joy No Down I can't feel alive Nor can I die Loosing control Is your frightening goal So maintain your treason As anti-depressants Live it will shift You better believe Go gather your treasures Dwelling in memories Hid in the ocean Had no time to drown or breath air Run to the forest Trust me Cesar's Crown will be your fate Freshness surrounds me As the cold wind blows the weary hills Fly to the fields crow Join the bugs and mourn the harvest Hold your tongue and harken Evil lies where it charms Hate and be hated Love and beloved Deny this Life It's Suicide To deny this life There's no place to heal me It's forcing the naked wide and true Hey, liar Hey, vulture Hey, earblower Skintearer Shapeshifter Burn
