Track Name: Introduction
I wander far from the path of the elders
Forging new alliances 'twixt nature and my soul
You have failed to infiltrate my mind
Pure as a diamond in the misty veil of time

Life's not a struggle to survive
You'll never get out alive
So mount your destiny, follow the sign
And ride, ride, ride!

Soaring ever higher faster in a sacred arc
Culminates in final wisdom to unlock the ancient
Arts of prime existence
Come now to me, aether
Come now to me, aether
Track Name: Spawn of Subversive Desires
Rise, Rise
Now come forth
Now come forth

Spawn of subversive desires
Opposer of the Imperium
Possessed by hatred and fire
Dead set on martyrdom

Spawn of subversive desires
Freedom is won by flesh alone
Always reaching higher and higher
I am nothing but my own

With a dull iron axe they savagely split her skull
I had never seen so much blood

We know the lay of these burning twisting lands
Mutiny and revenge will soon be at hand
The more of us the subhuman pigs capture
The more of us shall slit their fucking throats

Our captors have run out of luck
Their tortures have driven us mad
In our rage we dismember the sentry
And vengefully storm into camp

We take revenge without fear
We fuck their throats with their own spears
rampage of swirling flesh and blood
and bile, avenge our past shed tears

Famished by our captors now deceased
Surrounded by so much fresh meat
Gorging their flesh and chugging blood
Now this is what I call a feast

From severed tentacles of defeat
We have become the beast
Track Name: Til Ungdommen
Faced by your enemies
On every hand
Battle is menacing,
Now make your stand
Fearful your question,
Defenseless, open
What shall I fight with?
What is my weapon?

Here is your battle plan,
Here is your shield
Faith in this life of ours,
The common weal
For all our children’s sake,
Save it, defend it,
Pay any price you must,
They shall not end it

Neat stacks of cannon shells,
Row upon row
Death to the life you love,
All that you know
War is contempt for life,
Peace is creation
Death’s march is halted
By determination

We all deserve the world,
Harvest and seed
Hunger and poverty
Are born of greed
Don’t turn your face away
From needs of others
Reach out a helping hand
To all your brothers

Here is our solemn vow,
From land to land
We will protect our world
From tyrants’ hand
Defend the beautiful,
Gentle and innocent
Like any mother would
Care for her infant.

Kringsatt av fiender,
gå inn i din tid!
Under en blodig storm -
vi deg til strid!
Kanskje du spør i angst,
udekket, åpen:
hva skal jeg kjempe med
hva er mitt våpen?

Her er ditt vern mot vold,
her er ditt sverd:
troen på livet vårt,
menneskets verd.
For all vår fremtids skyld,
søk det og dyrk det,
dø om du må - men:
øk det og styrk det!

Stilt går granatenes
glidende bånd
Stans deres drift mot død
stans dem med ånd!
Krig er forakt for liv.
Fred er å skape.
Kast dine krefter inn:
døden skal tape!

Elsk og berik med drøm
alt stort som var!
Gå mot det ukjente
fravrist det svar.
Ubygde kraftverker,
ukjente stjerner.
Skap dem, med skånet livs
dristige hjerner!

Edelt er mennesket,
jorden er rik!
Finnes her nød og sult
skyldes det svik.
Knus det! I livets navn
skal urett falle.
Solskinn og brød og ånd
eies av alle.

Da synker våpnene
maktesløs ned!
Skaper vi menneskeverd
skaper vi fred.
Den som med høyre arm
bærer en byrde,
dyr og umistelig,
kan ikke myrde.
Track Name: Slaying Ravana
Under shifting sands
Lies a forgotten age
Before the prophets came
Degrading men into apes

Predating all taqlid
There was mathematics
Before Sharia
There was a higher law

Fore crescent and star there was an entire night sky
Then came the single thoughts narrowed from broader minds
Antecedent holy war enshrined was peace and life
But now the carcass rips, the putrid stench of lies

Reverse enlightenment, backward evolution
Spawn of the three headed demon of religion
The Jewish plague arrived followed by Christian lies
Then Islam corrupted remaining desert tribes

I've altruistically come to save of all you damned
I am the cross the crescent and the hexagram
Surrender reason, thought, and all your intellect
Now give yourself to me, unto your dying breath

Three strains of one disease, three types of fermenting shit
Comfort for maggots caught in the infesting grip
Three heads of Ravana, demon of oppression
Behold the damage done, progress reduced to none
Track Name: Nephilim
I hereby dedicate my death
To the worms that feed on carrion and flesh
They found my shallow grave, They ate my heart
Scavenging through stale life of the decrepit shell

Soulless divine prey
Beset by the ravenous
Some kill by lust
Some kill by cunning
I lay beside myself
Mourning for eternity
My scattered ash dead to
all warmth of thought

I, Nephilim
Forsaken shell left in the cold

I, Nephilim
Rotten eye sockets mold

I, Nephilim
Never to be whole again

I, Nephilim
This is my requiem

I, Nephilim
Rotting corpse in a shallow grave

I, Nephilim
Battered, beaten, thrice betrayed

I, Nephilim
Never to be whole again

I, Nephilim
This is my requiem

In blackened mind
Elsewhere embraced by candlelight
Treacherous thoughts
I no longer know the taste

Every night they dance in lust
To a song once was mine
Such whispers murmur through the wall
I remain in cursed time
Track Name: Remnants of an Arcane War
Ancient ruins clawing at the sky
But cold black earth is their fate
Once strong Obelisks in shards now lie
All that is will decay

Weapons and tomes lay buried in ground
Where lives of men bled dry
I carve through an archive of carnage in the earth
With a sharp-as-knife raven eye
Lo, I have found a crystal orb
Shimmering in midday glare
As my finger grazed that cold smooth sphere
My mind was no longer there....

Battle is raging on the frozen lake
A sheet of ice, cloaked in night
Running red, bleeding life
Thousands of men driven mad by their hate
Mages cast spells at a blinding rate

The clash of swords is deafening
Yielding only to ravenous roar of
Dragons and Wyverns soaring through the sky
No prisoners, legions shall die

Remnants of an Arcane War

Rain of dragons blood adorns my face
The horns of battle, they resonate
Trapped on the field no way to escape
Grasping a sword I join the fray
Felled by a blow I lay, facing stars
A carcass falls to me from afar
A dragon's corpse is falling apart
The spear like horn passes through my heart

I come to in familiar time
But all is fading to a blistering white
In my last tattered seconds of life
I see the orb is gone from our time
Track Name: Life Extermination Sequence
Amorphis entity from the ether
Primordial manifestation of anger
Enslaved to mass demonic possession
A revelry in spirit Dionysian

This is how man comes to power
Comes to oppress and enslave another
Thin the herd that you despise
A merciless slaughter of human life

Life Extermination Sequence

The order is set, the master and slave
Society's a tool to turn the rage
Of a poor man to slit the throat of another
Distract them from the real massacre

Apollonian spirit prevails
The few shall feed on the masses entrails
Thin the herd that you despise
A merciless slaughter of human life

Life Extermination Sequence
Track Name: An Epitaph Lost and Forgotten
The death in darkness
For darkness yields no more
Than a a cold abysmal vacuity
Where you will lie forevermore

As you fade into the darkness
You will feel ever more alone
Until everyone you once knew
Are mere rotting flesh and bone

And the longing will grow
And even longing will fade
And you will long for your longing
Inevitably your life you betray

And when there is no glow of light
From your rotting wasted shell
You will fade to oblivion
Like an angel dragged into hell

And the monoliths to your memory
May be buried deep in the earth
But a cosmic menace awaits to
Destroy and permit no rebirth

Assimilate to the core of the sun
Sublimate or collapse into iron
Betrayed by the god of life
Sol exterminates with cleansing fire

Embrace the searing flames
You and them are one in the same
When the flame goes out your life runs out
And darkness is insane

So as you're burning at your pyre
Remember men are made of fire
Savor the flame of your destruction
So it is by your will you die

Chemical reactions cease
The universe turns black
No higher dimensionality
And no turning back

An epitaph lost and forgotten
Frozen in time
Omega was less than one
Dead wait for eternity to come
Track Name: Stem of the Æther
Of the abyss to the pillars of existence
Before the primal dawn
A particle pervades through a protocosmic haze
The seed of creation

Space is a conduit of lucidity
For all existence in the vicinity
Time is a measure of its all pervading
Force through the aether to the source
Energy is conserved but infinite
The power to change its own cold
Matter as its radiated from the vortex

Entropy infested, a black death of the gods themselves
Will we fade to cold silence, or collapse in fiery hell?
Darker aeons as cosmic strangers, roaming the sky forever

From the chaos of a churning stellar furnace
Cauldron of entropy
Elements arise from the dying stars' cries
Its own crematory

Space is a conduit of lucidity
For all existence in the vicinity
Time is a measure of its all pervading
Force through the aether to the source
Energy is conserved but infinite
The power to change its own cold
Matter as its radiated from the vortex
