Track Name: Forever Enslaver

Before and without birth
Kill without question
No violence, no thought
attack the enslaver

A single line of pure life cuts through the flesh of millions
Ageless in disembodied entropy

Alive in the thoughts of blood dried and powdered and smoked
Forever enslaver
Track Name: Weapon of Mind
crawling forth

through thickening growth

instincts ignored

to see the world
as more than two and one

there is always consciousness to realize

weapons of mind or tool

travelers cut open

friends, foes, cripple loss 

cut away the others flesh

useless growths when 
guiding hands cannot be

there is always consciousness to realize

weapons of mind or tool

foraging through overgrowth

excess of limbs and minds 

forcing through leaving nothing 

severed hands spew blood soaking filaments 
charred remains tangled
slithering forth

when slime grows to stand

leaving carcass eaten 

a new path was sought and found
there is no path of understanding

guided strikes 

environmental eradication

of unneeded life
Track Name: Following
bone protrudes
hunt, stalk
any trail to follow

the necessity of desperation
the hunt of everyday

following the empty trails
of yesterday's scents and stomach bile
the sweat that drips
loosen the only grip

steady the hand
so that one arrow may aim true
steady the breath
that no living being may hear
Track Name: Violence Path
dripping from the walls
every drop a universe
of chaos
and destruction

drops descend
without end
unbearable weight
crushing bone and ash (of all life forgotten)

hand to hand
eye to eye
blood by blood
this path unfolds

to fist
to bludgeon
to blade

(to flame, to ash)

every vein
bursting through
with thirst
for violence

what good is your rule?
when all path
lead to this place
you cannot escape

when the path will find you
it is there that you must tread
