Track Name: Pure Black Aura
Track Name: What Leads Me to Her Caress
When my spirit reaches it's breaking point
You can't expect it to go on the way it is

My soul is infested with open wounds
The world drowns me in depression's salt
The sensation burns me like the flames from hell
To where i am damned by my own fault
I have already begun living a life
That tells me to contradict its meaning
With the angel of death's hand not in sight
I must continue to persist being

When will I see you, beautiful
Sweet angel of death, greet me soon

I see her beauteous glow approaching
Shining of blackest night, pure black aura

Embrace me, you angel, my own demon
And take me to fire like; I know that it awaits me

I feel a touch, oh so softly
Now she walks me to sweet release
I'm fucking free
Track Name: Ethereality
Track Name: A Cataclysmic Descent
Do my eyes deceive me
A wasteland lies outside my door
Devastation as far as the eye can see
Such a sight sends a shimmer to my core

The planets have aligned (When will they realize)
Debris fills the air (They wait for nothing to begin)
What a shameful demise (All that's been prophecized)
No remorse to share (It's all just an excuse to sin)

People mourning, children crying
Cities burn away
Fate defying, Mankind is dying
Ashes to end our reign

A foolish obsession
Modernized conception
A prophet's arrogance
Common ignorance

Look to the sky but the rain won't come
And you'll wonder why
Fate defying, Mankind is dying
Ashes to end our reign


The dawn has arrived
Take my hand, darling
Let's wander these streets
And see who's survived
Sorrow I feel for the fellow man
Ain't it a pitiful reason for life to end

Many will seek solution
Few will find it
Now we know; man has a limit
The dawn has arrived.
