Track Name: Ovum of Filth
A howl from Titan
Moon Wizard's master plans
A burst of immense evil energy
Set forth by Red Witch's hands
Innoculating souls, mutant lands
The Ovuum of filth cracks in the gutter
One has risen, a commander like no other

The Mayor of Defilment, the King of Disease
Sent here to undermine and bring us to our knees
Mortal's technology cannot comprehend
These universal orders brought upon our heads

Spreading across the planet, moving at rapid speeds
The torment is looming, cosmos plants the seed
Extermination process isn't such a bore
With The Mayor and his minions thirsting for more

The spirit of mankind is fiercely contested
Celestial war has answered ancient questions
Abhorrent creators eager to suppress cognition
Human contention halts conflict barely an instant
Track Name: Slime Beach
Millions of years ago, the dawn of an era
A lifeless void shocked into breath
Eyeless, blind, wretched, stupid and numb
No one knows from which it comes
The process of evil
The gift of sight in these vast oceans
Creature on creature, a bloody proposition
Nature's entropies

Now it's crawling onto the shores
Diversifying limits, creeping evermore
Perfect solution grinding through waste
Gift of our expansion, vicious at its base

Suffering planet is not a concern
For the unity brought down by the ones
Who toil away in the heavens above to bring us what we desire

Aiming spells at the ones who know nothing of existence

I am the Slime
I have always been
Ever since I crept from the depths of the oceans
My plan has been one of sinister devotion
The cosmos are now aligned
Galactic partners, universal crime

Now in the present we have got a war
With celestial beings keeping the score
Eternity does not exist (for those)
Who turn life into nothing

Aiming spells at the ones who know nothing of existence
Track Name: Advanced Soul Matrix
In the desert at the base of the mount
Near the diamond that fuels hybrid's enterprise
The Orange seeking a plan for purity
Transform the foundations of time and space

Fathers of the Greys and cousins of our own
Light years away came searching for a home
Working with top levels and wrong dwelling Siders
The re-birds from Lyra calculate the binders

What is it that no one knows
That will bring together sacred DNA
Star power, lightning strikes death
Twisted hatchlings, a monster's caress
A new soul matrix, though beautiful it's glow
Has the power to unleash nuclear snow
Destiny has brought us a chosen strength
A descendant from Barnard's star

"HEEYYYYY
What has been done?"
The Moon Wizard booms from the heavens
"These have been the rules of force -
The price levied is extinction
Of humans and their red-star brothers
"What has been done?"
Red Witch cries out
Track Name: Wrong Side
Lurking in the night, crawling in my skin
Contact with the shadow void, spirit shifts unhinged
Marching through the blackness, body covered in sores
Moldered chompers smacking putrid breath
No future, no morals, visions of twisted existence
Plunging into netherrealm, never coming back

Don't talk about the right side
I'm on the wrong side of the dirt and you're next
Bad look, street smarts, cold shoulder
Don't talk about the right side
I'm on the wrong side of the dirt and you're next

Summoned by the orders of glorious overlords
Reptants transmit anti-cosmic runes
No future, no morals, visions of twisted acceptance
Cloaked in vagrant form, another city blighted

Don't talk about the right side
I'm on the wrong side of the dirt and you're next
Don't talk about the right side
I'm on the wrong side of the dirt and you're next
Track Name: Motorized Exterminator
Motorized exterminator, highest order cursed
Rotating through the multitudes, looking to subverse

You will be...
SLICED
RIPPED
TORCHED
AND JARRED

Chief Ophidian officer, confines in osseus prison
Suspended in disbelief, runes obscure cognizance
The one living as a tumor filled wretch
Brings the third dimension to it's edge

Space crafts racing towards the end
Unexpecting planet not easy to defend
Draco's hammer liquifies atmosphere
While mankind stands quaking in abhorrence in fear
Space crafts racing towards the end
Unexpecting planet not easy to defend
DRACO'S HAMMER

The future is captured only for the lords
Liquified brains, made quick of the dead
Eternal blindness casts itself (through) history erased
human's disgrace
Track Name: Laws of Power
"Herein lies the laws of power
mortal's greed has struck the final hour"
The brothers in arms which provide fortress
Will disappear from this realm, celestial mourning

Meteors raining down relentlessly on this planet
A curse from above, not a hope in this world to contain it
Elites and slavemasters have always held the cards, no bluffing
Billions of years culminate in a lost cause, the hunted

"Herein lies the laws of power
mortal's greed has struck the final hour"

What has this world been lived for; watched night become day
For eternity, swept away, like light flashes in the Arctic night
Evolution just a scam, tormenting
Experiment finding no Gods, no masters, in the end
All a hoax, a vision collapsed, promises unfilfilled
Chaos constantly swirling, expanding into nothing, anxiety hammer
Distraught and calloused, indifferent universe is dead
