Track Name: Memento Mori
It’s like being under the wrath of the pure world.
The universe will take revenge for all the damage and disease we’ve been sowing under its sacred skin.
Oceans unfold upon us – cleanse.
Impartially will purge the Earth, embracing with the veil of oceanic gravity.
Ocean depths.
Track Name: Depths Upon Us
Look inside my eyes and see destruction.
Witness the anger of the world.
Let the icecaps melt and watch the flood take place.

Don't let the undertow take us down.
Our dreams lie beneath the ocean,
Our skeletal framework only left to rot.

What will become of this life
Is this a part of the plan, or will we just fall apart?
I feel the undertow pulling me under,
Is this the price we pay?

We are the lost, we are the offspring
We are the lineage of the depths.

They are begging for mercy and there's no one there to see left alive
The rust is bringing us down, while the waves crash on our backs.

To destroy, recreate, to bring hell upon this earth
To bring you upon your knees

We are the lost, we are the offspring
We are the lost, we are the lineage of the depths.

Spiteful demons awaken from their graves,
Reanimate the blackness of this world.

Spiteful demons awaken from their graves,
Just let the water calm you down.
Track Name: Corrupted Earth
Can you see the foulness that we’ve made through walking this world?
Greed and selfishness have corroded the purity of the Earth.

The world is crumbling beneath my feet, dying in front of me.

The undeniable destination we’re fated towards.
Polluting with everything we create.

Against the light, against life,
We are acting as false gods without fear of extinction.
Against the seas, against the sky,
Destroying everything that made us alive.

Consciousness has been soiled with blackened gold.
You sold your soul for mud molded like diamond, we are so wrong.

You can´t overcome what was alive before our incursion

The death of us is imminent after all that we have done.

Will we ever be the same as we were before?
I'm drowning, wading through the shadows
Know the only truth, we are abandoned
Further down the waters our nations collapse

This should be the beginning of the new age, spiritual growth that the world has waited.
This should be the rebirth of the earth, as a new stage.
The way of life we’ve enjoyed carelessly, must end before it’s way too late.
We must believe inside ourselves that any change will begin with oneself.

There is no escape, nature will take care of reigning again.
The downfall of man, it is the price that we accept to take.

Will we ever be the same as we were before?
I'm drowning, wading through the shadows
Know the only truth, we are abandoned
Further down the waters our nations collapse

It is time to act and compensate what we have destroyed.
To live as one connected with nature.

It all starts with an inner change of each man willing to survive as a humble and conscious being.
All the things you'll see is how things are changing, it’s like a new perception, it’s like a new beginning.
Track Name: Atonement
(This has dragged me into the bottom of the abyss
impregnated on my skin like the scent of your neck
this is numbing every part of my essence, burning, whispering)

This is blinding me, drowning all my silence deep

Swallow all the pride that was instated in my head,
I will live without the mess that we’ve created to keep us far from reality
Or the things we ever called escape
I cannot deny that more than once I wanted to stay floating on the fakeness
As carved deep on my mind, I will see your flared eyes stare directly at me,
Do not let me fall in madness.

This perception of life has made a slave of me
The conception of this lie, day by day is killing me
Blind desire is slowly taking over me
Get out of my mind to set me free

(Set me free)

Flowing in my veins, this is the tide that you left

Your sins inside of me, the mist is covering my skin

Let’s put aside the sadness that has been afflicting us, just dividing us.
Breaking down the addiction disguised as lust, to live with ill-gotten pleasure
It became more than a young impulse
To repossess the vividness of my being

I’m ready to close the gates and leave it all far behind
Seeing through tarnished glass, reaching for the light
To bury this forbidden pleasure

Reprieve me
Track Name: Clairvoyant
A simple superstition about what it means to exist, like being suspended in oceanic levitation, between reality and this intermittent revelation of what remains of us.

The third eye doesn´t lie, everyone is falling apart, searching absolution while I´m searching lights in the dark.

See a part of absolute chaos and wake up before it’s too late, try to run far away when the world is so close to breaking.

The purge is near. The purge is near.

She believes blindly in me, we are pawns to her plan, she abducted me to see the uncertain direction.
She takes my breath to be a part of your nature.

Hold my heart to see through your eyes this new creation.
Do you still have trust in this humanity?

Let it drown so deep in your own mind so we can survive.
The purge is near, I can see the new life born from debris of this world of impurity, trust in me, trust in me.

Ethereal mist, numb the pain in me, bring your apathy, the prophecy is real.

A simple superstition about what it means to exist, like being suspended in oceanic levitation, between reality and this intermittent revelation of what remains of us.

The third eye doesn´t lie everyone is falling apart, dying for absolution while I´m searching lights in the dark.

Our destiny is becoming so real, see through the surface while silence becomes the new fear.
Trust in me.
