Track Name: Psychomanteum
Spiritual Realm -
Confused soul
A portal to
Commune with the dead

Silent and steady
Gazing into a reflective pool
Cut off, from all worldly distractions

An Oracle, truthful
For the sick only
Holding in it, the presage of life or death

Catoptromancy, Divination:
Searching for the secrets to existence

To the subconscious

Now the thread is snapping,
Sanity unwrapping
Visions of the future:
Blinding in their madness

Voices echo through your head,
Connecting with spirits of the dead
Ethereal deities, subjugate reality

In your mind: Pestilence, and plague
All-encompassing, in the trance...

Sensory Deprivation

Left and right, back and forth
Scanning for a sign of life,
Inside of the mirror

Neither breathing nor blinking,
Completely unmoving

Yet in your head, running for your life

Hallucinatory, close to hysteria;
Your thoughts seem to tear at you

The other side of the mirror,
Has never been clearer
Yet in this domain, you have transduced

Hypnosis already induced
Total darkness:
Both in, and outside, of you

Indeterminate view;
Unfocused, you
Transfer through,
Into... Another plane

Once inside
The Spirit World...

The dead and gone
Secrets, untold

Insight sought;
Mortal qualms to be rectified...

All at once, the demons come alive!
You try to escape, but the portal rescinds!
Something in your mind snaps,
You are out of time
Trapped in the psychomanteum, never will you die

Try to escape, but you're in the other realm
Human psyche shattered, you are overwhelmed
Form incorporeal, your matter destroyed
Within the psychomanteum, floating in the void
Track Name: Exacerbated Psychosis
Tide of cogency...

Reduced to redundancy

The illusion begins to dissolve
Inner maelstrom
A vindictive subconscious, absolved

Procuring tangibility, substantiality
Further exonerated from your society
A systematic acumen; Aloofness to "them"
Sickening, a flux from within you

As madness sets in,
Sagacity, a sin
The meek, herded into enslavement...

Death from above
The powers that be,
Ruling all, psychologically

Fragile psyche, wrought
Asunder, your thoughts
Mental hierarchy,
Descending towards unreality

The landscape around you, now
A sterile realm of the subconscious,
Unfulfilled, desolate, austere

Your purpose, clear
Compounding focus,
Splitting through the fog and myopia

Burdening realization
Coalesces, within
As paranoia seeps through...

Systematic involution
Mind split open, sickening, deranged
All thought now, immediately evacuated
Folly: whirling, destroying every synapse of the brain
Internal Bleeding
Spewing forth, a hemorrhage inside of you
Clotting, blackened, perforated within
Sanguine fluid; Mortise incision

Insalubrious, discordant contradiction
Everything around you at odds with your very life
What you've come to know, a pathetic existence
Humanity desiccating, turning man to machine
Perfunctory, automated... Just cogs in the machine

Ecstasy: found, erasing thee
Disconnected from life;
Animated to war, and strife

Your very freedom forever, ensnared;
Automatons, running scared...

(Solo- Sutton, Alter)

Soon to fall, perception as you've come to know it
Inhibitions within you, fucking snapping like twigs
A plethora of murderous thoughts, fulfilling
Sacrificial exultation; Unabated, blood spilling

Shroud, congealing around you (now within you)
Instigating you to sadism, and vehemence
Viciously, converging on brutality
Laid out as a final homage: Carnage and pugnacity

(Solo- Sutton)

Disease, rampant
The Infection, black
Ichor pours forth, from cognizance

Observance: Subservient
Intellect, in ruin
Inevitably, mortality decays to fatality

(Solo- Alter)

Cogitation... Terminated suddenly (violently)
Afterlife: The final Crux
