Track Name: Introduction: Divination
None (Instrumental)
Track Name: Matriarch
Can't bare to bear, bearer
of naught but blind
justice. Redress
With hammer or balm

Matriarch
Mother to all and none
She will addle the lore

Against the odds and norms
From oppression she rose
With a voice of thunderstorms
She structured chaos

Matriarca, oh matriarch (em pt mesmo)
Mother of no fairy tale
Mythos deconstructed
Track Name: Auto-da-Fé
a holy tribunal
filled with old men
discussing matters divine
judging the crimes of peasants
accused of heresy

today my fate lies in their hands

those filthy hands
will hurt me
and beat me
and bleed me
and craft my
auto-da-fé


the stage is set
the crowds have arrived
and I tremble at the sight
of the inquisitors

my body's broken
my soul is in ruins
my fate is still unknown

and yet my penitence
has already begun
humiliated
expecting the worst


I bear the mark of treason
sanbenito
My legacy put to shame
Shame
auto da fe

my sentence's announced

they'll burn me alive

et Spiritum Sanctum effúdit in remissiónem peccatórum,

my sins are unknown

my god is dead

my soul is dead

per ministérium Ecclésiæ

I hear the crack of the whip

torture
slaughter
bloodshed
in the name of god

murder
corruption
politics
in the name of god

the crowd cheers
in inhuman delight
they know our fate
is a painful death
Track Name: Purified by Fire
fire
spreading holy light
fire
cleansing the impure
fire
the bane of the godless
demonstrating god's love

death
our god demands
death
he demands we shed some
blood
and destroy the devil's work


red
scorching red
hell
is brought before us
tears
crying as her flesh melts
punished for the crime of womanhood

fire
burning all my sins
fire
burning through my flesh
fire
the blessing of christ
burn me whole


she still wonders as she burns
what did she do, what is her crime

smelling burnt flesh in shock she faints

(another) Spawn of Lucifer
Purified by fire!
demon, whore, witch!

purified by fire
woman, free, dead!


Domine Iesu, dimitte nobis debita nostra, salva nos ab igne inferiori, perduc in caelum omnes animas, praesertim eas, quae misericordiae tuae maxime indigent.

justice slaughter cleansing killing

(another) Spawn of Lucifer
Purified by fire!
demon, whore, witch!

purified by fire
woman, free, dead!


Redemption by burning on a stake

Salvation through a slow and painful death
Track Name: Satan in the Death Row
another one debased
through false conclusions, flawed logic
ravage now, question later
dive into the frenzy

time and time again
it's not allowed to change
as brisk solutions are vital
contempt unvital

to quell the thirst of the
ornery lynch mob

paroxysm
of cursory conclusions

meantime
lives at stake

negligible
those are not worthy of care

chronicled targets
the weakest links of the chain
the oppressed, the maladjusted
kindling to the symbolic pyre

symbolic justice, symbolic guilt
only death is real

"For a split second today
I could smell home.
The world I left behind was so close I could almost touch it.
It's amazing how certain shades of agony
have their own beauty."
Track Name: Forbidden
the day the horseman came to me
I was fatigued and worn out
yet I reluctantly welcomed him
and before I could argue
I was taken his prisoner

creator
why have you allowed
my mind
to wander into the darkest places

now i can't leave
I'm trapped in the void
in my godless void
I am king supreme

smite me lord

forbidden

I am the larvae king
ruling no one

I defy the gods
because I am free
they watch with disdain
because I'm free from them

fervor
consumes us in vain
terror
infused in our brains
grotesque
we bow to the strange
ghoulish
warriors and saints

frenzy
faces twisted in pain
the banner
carrying his name
provokes
a choir of distress
tumult
as the horseman rides by

forbidden
criminal


"I succumb in shame
his sword in my neck
his eyes burning red
I drown in my last breath"

the vengeful
and vain creator
savors my disgrace
he tears
my flesh
and breaks my bones
he enjoys my pain
he is god almighty
grand master of the blind
secret servant of the dark
he drinks to my death in hell
he is god almighty

frenzy
faces twisted in pain
the banner
carrying his name
provokes
a choir of distress
tumult
as the horseman rides by

fervor
consumes us in vain
terror
infused in our brains
grotesque
we bow to the strange
ghoulish
warriors and saints
Track Name: Le Roi Nu
le roi nu
how could he not see
the lingering pest
beneath him

rei nu
a coward with a crown
and a court of scum
dying

le roi nu
only looks to himself
and sees noone else
the tyrant

he worships the gods
but does the devil's work
to gain his favor
and fails to impress

le roi nu
how could he not see
the impending storm
infernal

ignoring the signs
of his obvious doom
he never looked down
and the people ate him

the king is dead
let's celebrate his death
by following in
his footsteps

the king is dead
let's celebrate our death
by crowning
another one


today
we rejoice
today
we've won
and yet the irony
is that the king is naked
and so are we

today
we feast
today
the day's ours
and yet the irony
is that the king is naked
and so are we
Track Name: Egregious
to degrade our
manifestations of freedom
they will gush their hatred over
the inadequate

ortodoxy in this age of reason
only hurts the unprotected,
the invisible

the death of god
brought light but also contempt
As the wrath of the believers escalates

hate
poorly disguised as faith
threatens the advance
of our collective sense
and buries us in shit
and for yet another age
we will have to bear
with the eccentricities
of obsolete doctrines
and the older they get
the harder they ought to hit
to convince the young
to indulge in their lunacy
and though god is really dead
his ghost lingers still
and idiots everywhere
offer their lives to him


and the worst offence
is the painful irony
of greedy clergymen
and their doom machines
created by the godless science
it's.... egregious

but no amount of violence
will change the fact that
religious faith of any kind
is but one of humanity's desperate attempts
at making light of the ugly
and inevitable end of life
and religions themselves
are just another pillar
to sustain old power structures
but they will fall

because everything falls
the young reject the old
and noone can stop
the moral zeitgeist
once it is set in motion

Today they call themselves believers.
Tomorrow their offspring will call them victims.
Track Name: Outro
None (instrumental)
