Track Name: Intro / Hallelujah
have we cheated god?
a father with no son
the heaviest of burdens
this life is but a sum

boulder rolls down

the heaviest of burdens
a father with no son
Track Name: Compassion
darkness, the default
lonely necessity
open your eyes
we beg but who will provide?

no one

no one is listening
Track Name: Becoming! Becoming!
total collapse
within myself
a recess most unholy

faces blurred
time is lost
what once was not shall be

that which once was not shall be
becoming, becoming

faces blurred
now the time has come

the only thing I have ever known
this void inside me is not my fucking own
Track Name: Let There Be Light
babel reigns from that on high
as above, so below
infinite wisdom and mercy and love
you look to the sky
but it's not enough

let there be light
Track Name: Mother Tongue
greatest inconvenience
the never ceasing noise
"meaningless" is comforting
for man is null and void

free from meaning
freed from needing
Track Name: No One is Innocent
so much love
yet so cruel inside this head
what a stain
we deserve what we get

fraudulent innocence

pain demands to be felt
Track Name: Ascending the Bridge with Resolute Intent
this dress / rehearsal
for death / audience
of one / there is no
encore / curtains fall

there will be no applause
when man takes his bow
what a hideous performance
what was it all about?

when the answer burns across the sky
will the chain fit around my neck?
will it break if i burn the disguise?
cover up all the pain in its eyes
Track Name: Inherent State of Perfect
the highest power
the greatest error
they are one and the same

if we are made
in his image
then he is who's to blame

blind, deaf, and dumb is god
Track Name: To Serve Man
nothing to be gained
no one to be saved
devoted performance
we're branded in shame

wholly estranged
this vacant place
the most noble cause
is the worst of mistakes

to serve man

compassion
why?
intention
lie?
Track Name: Total Fucking Bliss
step one
abandon
all that which defines you

no self
to help
mirrors facing mirrors

no subject, no object
now, nothing left but ecstasy

total fucking bliss
