1)  Unto Death 

Solace sought in faith and deeds

Misbegotten tithes and dreams

Epitaph scoured rotten

Who it was now lays forgotten

 

Void does give

The void shall take

Fear all you know forgot

Sickness of each soul's rot

Pain that shall never cease

As long as you you breathe

Until the sweet release

Sickness in every breath 

sickness unto death

 

Hollowed vessel of emotion

Chosen pain and bitter potion

Help devotion become despair

Know the cycle can't be broken

Void does make

The void shall break

Fear all you love be lost

Sickness is each soul's lot

Pain shall never cease

As long as you you breathe

Until the sweet release

Sickness every breath,

Sickness unto death

 

Until the sweet release

Vicious sickness

unto death

Lyrics & Voice by Ryan Flint

2)  Nuremberg

(Dying of the Light)

We watched on so passively

As innocents around us died

And we just held our tongues

As they set fire to the sky

Will the future say

We went gently into the night

Or that we bravely raged

Against the dying of the light

 

Now we cannot pretend

We tried to make a stand

A Nuremberg defense

Why should we even try

When already the knife

Has worked so deep inside

 

Yeah we all find our way back home

But it may not be

the place you think you know

I never feared death

It's the threat of living forever

that makes my blood run cold

 

As week passed after week

We refused to stir from our sleep

As the incessant sound

Of gunfire echoed in the street

And only once it was

Too late to hope for peace

We knew the future would

Remember us for being weak

 

Now we cannot pretend

We tried to make a stand

A Nuremberg defense

How can we hope to try

When already this knife

Has worked so deep inside

No we cannot pretend

We tried to make a stand

A Nuremberg defense

How can we hope to try

When our hand grips the knife

That's killing us inside

3)  Mortification 

Trapped within

Trying to feel

Anything

Could be real

 

Broken spirit, spoke in wheel

Hollowed shell brought to heel

Without vision, yet I see

With no direction, yet I seek

Mortification with each breath

Mortification Be Fore Death

 

Free me from

Humanity

 

Memory betrays me

Broken mask of sanity

Struggle on

Toil through pain

Or forfeit This losing game

Ugly and deep

Echo lies

Of dreams mocked

To death by time

 

Without a voice, but I scream

Without a choice, all but free

Mortification by each lie

Mortification

Before the body

Dies

 

All the streaks

Of running tears

Never washed

Away your fears

Specious beast

Trapped in pride

Until

It's demise

 

Without voice, yet I scream

Without heart, but I feel

Without a hope, I can't dream

Mortification, before the body

Dies

4)  Dust

(Dying of the Light) 

Speck of Dust

In the light

All shall fade

Into the night

 

Blind me to every tie that binds me

Left to dust two meters deep

Lost to time and memory

Where I rest but never

dream

 

No more lies

No More screams

No more strife

No more dreams

No second chance

No afterlife

 

Speck of dust

In the light

All will fade

Into the night

Ash to ash and dust begot

All become equal

When they’re forgot

When they’re forgot

 

Speck of dust

In the light

All will fade

Into the night
