Èlleipsis


Reality imploding
Falling towards an end
Light has slowed and broken down
Void is all that’s left

Happiness seems strangely dressed
His healing robes beyond all grasp

The Left Hand Of The Righteous

Cursed
Banished unto the undefined space
Penitent thief, impenitent thief
Shame
Buried beneath a flood of wine and blood
Infinite grace, endless death
Lost
Strayed from the path of the Sephirot
Peeling away, descend into shell, dried to a husk
Child
Mirror reflects unrecognizable face
Distorted light, piercing the darkness, nothing revealed

What is found can fall astray
What is built can be destroyed

Creed
The low and the innocent die by the sword
Wisdom of kings, judgement of fools
Slave
Bound to serve two undignified masters
Ignorant god, omniscient man

None more wise
You nor I

Doubt
Culling the cubes from a festering wound
Wisdom is all, knowledge is naught, truth is reviled
Flesh
Built of the stars forever beyond
Deny thy life, deny thy grave, deny thy cause

What is seen can be concealed
What is scrawled can be erased

None more wise
You nor I

Today you’ll be with me in paradise
Today you’ll see glory and genocide

Shadow of doubt
Refuse
Burden of proof
Resist
Question of pain
Reject
Logic denied
Renounce

None more wise
You nor I

Object UB313

Prove to me a word
Explanations deafening
I fail to comprehend

Chaos undefined
Your mystery impossible
Yet something lingers on

Painting our faces a cursed shade of Grey
Plastic lives becoming plastic deaths
100 years are wasted by the shore
Charon’s obol weighs heavy on our tongues

Speak ye of time / Relative
Speak ye of light / Distortion
Speak ye in fact / Uncertain
Speak ye in prose / Divergent

Speak to me a word
Beyond the gilded page
And I’ll believe it all

Gnosis supersedes
Your mystery irrelevant
Yet something lingers on

Speak ye of law / Punishment
Speak ye of pain / Ignorance
Speak ye in truth / Deception
Speak ye in tongues / Confusion

Condescend to me
You arrogant master
Chaos spews from a million mouths
Babel crashes down
Come descend to me
You oblivious bastard
Whispered love through invisible teeth
Bible crashes down

Installed under incorruptable crowns
Blood stained martyrs devolve to worthless white
Clawing upwards with our doom upon our backs
Eris rises and plummets to the earth

Droning on
I grow tired of this argument
I’ve been waiting
For truth that’s immutable
False resolve
I got ahead of myself
I was seeing things
That made me think this could be real

Will not be bound
Will not be caged
Will not be found
Will not be named

Upon the Face of the Waters

A dark globe perverts the outmost wastes
A gloom profound beckons to the deep
We shrink back and cower in fear
Murmur unheeded curses towards the skies
We crawl away from our first scattering
While the stars collapse and the planets fall like judgements

What revealed all?  This ocean beyond light?
Who knows this secret?  This creator of worlds?
Perhaps He knows; perhaps He knows not
Uncreated, this spark from the Earth

A dark globe distorts the inmost depths
Strangling back the will to destroy the gods
We make of ourselves a sacrifice
Kneeling, smash our skulls upon the stones
We claim dominion over infinitesemal
While the cosmos waits, infinite and indifferent

What concealed all?  This pinhole burned sky?
Who knows this secret?  This devourer of worlds?
Perhaps He knows; perhaps He knows not
Uncreated, this spark from the Earth

The Denialist

Stepped into the void left the ship behind
Imperfect mimic of unborn men
Reason commands to join you on the surface
Sometimes I think I’d rather drown

You
You walk amongst the waves
A specter beyond reproach
Why
Oh ye of little fact
Abandon years of research

Dragged into the deep by the undertow
Foundering in a nameless fear
Dark saltwater fills my lungs
Transubstantiates into the blood

Down
In primordial depths
Faint memory amniotic
Light
Filters through the womb
Corroded christ arms outstretched

Analyze
Deicide
God inside
Thrice denied

Made to stand trial circle of dust and hate
Fatal meeting of rock and bone
You feign not to show more than passing interest
Draw equations into the dirt

Scribe
Make your absurd glyphs
Your letters of obscure men
Law
Confusing admonition
Go now and learn no more

Empty space remains upon the right hand
You come not to bring peace but a pen
Message in the sand undeciphered still
I’ve been waiting since 1543

Where
Is the accuser
A pharisee to crush my skull
I
I cast the first stone
Victim of my own disgrace

Analyze
Deicide
God inside
Thrice denied

Deny
I don’t know the man
Despise
I don’t know myself

Edward Mordake

The hand of fate is a phantom limb
That wields a will of obsidian
Crack the ribs remove the shard
Isaac bound to vivisect

Hands o’er hearts fealty sworn
A vein attempt to mask the wound
Scar reminds identity
Spilled on an altar of sand

Organs sealed in canopic jars
Thou livest on the bread of Ra
Remove the self and take thy place
Ascend to join the nameless ones

Stare into the savior’s face
Suffer ye the same fate
Stare into the traitor’s face
Suffer ye the same fate

Plastic smiles locked in opposition
Kicking hooves and rending tusks
United only in their lust
Trample all beneath blackened feet

Drunken orgies held in secret rooms
Disgusting writhing of ashen skin
Jesus swills the blood of swine
Vomits yet another platitude

Plans devised to procreate
To raze a child in Babylon
A bastard son that none will claim
Judas bred to crucify

Stare into the savior’s face
Suffer ye the same fate
Stare into the traitor’s face
Suffer ye the same fate

We’ve been so wrong
For so long
We cannot fall
Nor carry on

As a dream - as a devil
This face of love is merely a mask
It never sleeps - it speaks forever
The sins of the past are unforgiven

Shape me
Smudge me
Dream me
Erase me
Heal me
Scar me
Praise me
Delete me
Touch me
Doubt me
Face me
Deny me
Cleanse me
Stain me
Hold me
Undo me

I’m ancient
I’m fading
I’m wisdom
I’m decay
I’m boundless
I’m finite
I’m legion
I’m no name

I tried
I lied
I tried
I lied


Cognitive Dissonance


Awake into a nameless void
Endless past and endless future
All is still; all is calm

Righteous hand condemning all
Familiar quiet of eons dying
All have suffered; none have gained

Eternity denied
Damnation with a smile

On the path that leads to ruin
No way out; no escape
This flood will come; consuming all

Candle in the Dark fades away
The Demon Caged in futile logic
12:10 AM - Prophecy Fails

Eternity denied
Damnation with a smile

I remain
Eternal and unknown
You blindly seek
only to burn alone

Scars on his hands and feet
A reminder of enormous failure
A sacrifice that saved no one

Denied by a billion souls
Witless victim of faith collapsing
All hail the son of man

Eternity denied
Damnation with a smile

I remain
Eternal and unknown
You blindly seek
only to burn alone
I deny
The falsehood you insist
I will fade
Yet you will persist

Ontogeny Recapitulates Pylogeny

Burn her away
The light that has become
Tear her away
To destroy all memory

Translucent skin
Dark orbs becoming eyes
Voiceless and helpless nothing
Born into a plastic bag

First born rising
Second falling in vain

Testify 6000 years below the ground
Enslaved; this golden ring pulling down

A worthless thing
Naught but dogs & sheep & pigs
What it's become
Is not what it once was

There's nothing there
Not until the first breath
Justification makes
Genius of us all

First born rising
Second falling in vain

Testify 6000 years below the ground
Enslaved; this golden ring pulling down
 
The touch of blame
Has eluded us for years and years
Forgotten law casting light on falling faces
Vengence unseen scars inflicted
Cursed vagrant undying
Wandering all the earth

Science is Cain
Sacrifice self-serving
Unfeeling analyzer
Categorizing everything

A Vision

One word
One sign was all
I ever really needed from you

One look
One touch was all
I ever really wanted from you

I cannot see my reflection in your eyes
I cannot see a truth that I despise

One word
One sign was all
I ever really needed

Severing

Christ my heart is freezing
Devoid of color and drained of all it's blood
This dissection is revealing me
My arms pinned down crucifying you

Drugs injected and clouds fill my mind
My lungs collapse and I'm ripped from my skin
I stare inside; it's sickening
My God how long has been like this?

This process is tearing me apart
Formaldehyde falls from blind eyes
The pain is nothing; I've been through this before
My awakening will cost you your dreams

You always were the one I never loved
I might has well have severed off my hands
My analysis has disproved your love
But your love denies me too

Baptism

Footprints in the sand - All will wash away
Promise in the rain - Colours start to fade
The sparrows of the skies - Fall to the ground
We're walking through the shadows - And you're not around

There's always this space between us
Somewhere I cannot go
There's always this space between us
I'm still outside the wall

Lilies of the fields - Naked and ashamed
Teachers without a temple - Have forgotten your name

There's always this space between us
Somewhere I cannot go
There's always this space between us
A peace I'll never know

I can't be pure
I cannot be changed
By fire or by water
But in the end
All will strip away
And it won't really matter

The mustard seeds have fallen - On barren ground
We all serve two masters - In slavery we are bound

There's always this space between us
Somewhere I cannot go
There's always this space between us
And you cannot return

I won't be pure
I will not be changed
By fire or by water
But in the end
All will strip away
And it won't really matter

Embrace

A crooked line imperfect circle
Endlessly reaching
Unseeing eyes a strange shape
Grasping without feeling

The space between cold and yellowed
Stain on blank canvas
Thin and black smeared and severed
The two shall not be one

This tragic moment
Underneath twin black suns
Forever separate
And forever wanting more

Desperate love without hope
Destroyed by a secret
Unspoken pain plainly seen
Unheeded by the headless

This tragic moment
Underneath twin black suns
Forever separate
And forever wanting more

All I wanted was you
All I needed was you

Beckoning

Prophet has faded into antiquity
the undying man's words of warning
Have died now within us
Osiris beckoning turns us from our broken master
Buries us alive in false reality

It always seemed these corridors
Led to something deeper
But these bells and spheres and elders
Fell to iconoclasts
Streets paved in gold
Nothing but back alleys and dead ends
Stillborn messiahs under the trash

You promised that you would return - I'm still waiting
You promised you'd numb my pain - I'm still wanting

I cannot rebel
For nothing exists

Four Fucking Years

Never numb enough
To fade away painlessly
Never bored enough
To throw it all away
Never hate enough
To love losing everything
Never hurt enough
To wish it all would end

Four fucking years
Of waiting and wanting
For one simple moment
That slipped away
Stolen and broken
All this time wasted

Confession

In pain it rose up
Between the sun and earth
To bring forth a child of lies
To rule over perception

The people crowned their delusion
Starving bring grain to burn
Worshipping the idolatry
Born of their imagination

Please be silent
I tried so hard
To appease my idols
Their silence deafening

Ashes of hearts burnt in hand
Brought to her as sacrifice
She turns her head from this worthless gift
And smears their wanting faces

When I look into your eyes
It draws me back in circles
When my dreams revealed are dreams reviled
I've lost my faith in miracles

The beast turns a wicked smile
The diamond in her crown
Is nothing but glass
The most precious lie of all

Reborn

With every step it gets closer
A struggle against your will
Is this what you require?
Something pure and precious to kill?

These writings will forsake you
They're thorns that scratch the skin
Scars and fears circling
A halo of blood and piss

I wasn't ready for all of this
I didn't know this was our final kiss

I'm dying to be your salvation
Your sacrificial lamb
But I can't reach out to you
For this nail that's in my hand

Born to be your redemption
A lion on your throne
You don't remember the prophecies
Doomed to be alive and alone

I wasn't ready for all of this
I can still taste your bitter kiss

I wasn't ready for all of this
Give me one more betrayal's kiss
