about

Instructions to the dissection of a vulture
Characterized by the persistent
Patient and painful
Act of lying.

--!-- HELLFIRE --!-- KARTOUM --!--

lyrics

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
