An experimental death metal piece, with a characteristic (structure wise) ambient interlude, smoothly interjecting its flow.


Allegiant memories oppressed
my foe, you’re now a friend
warm-hearted voice pierces through
help me, drudge, help me, drudge!

Obedient memories reversed
my foe, you’re now a friend
cold-hearted screech exhaled
hold me, drudge, hold me, drudge!

(Abstract images collide and form a scenery of shapeless grid
Among all flickering spots of ill, the torch of odd)

Broken conditions are altered God’s pretty face has been scarred

The son, touched his grin puked his preach
swallowed nothing but false expectations
butchering his self-respect,
discipline with holy content.

The son, this mighty freak stuttered his preach
sharing nothing but dark expectations
slaughtering his self-commitment
God’s pretty face been scarred at last.

This sense has slackened
oh slack, breed contention
is this legitimate to be contagious of desolation?
Such change is untold
the downfall is an upping road (as) seen from above
as all believed and all are thought
inspired and blocked.

Neither free nor imprisoned
Order come, befriend my reason
Suck my beauty, be deformed
such a horrific perfected perversion
