Track Name: Mass Grave
An ocean of flesh, left to rot, conformity realized
Morality’s veil, in shreds, we are animals
Without pity, slaughtered, without pity
At the hands of, cowards, without pity

Where’s your redemption?
Where’s your reprieve?
Where’s your salvation?

Mass grave, right where you left us
Mass grave, right where you fucking left us

Here lies redemption
Here lies reprieve
Here lies salvation?
Kill yourself
Track Name: Velocirapture
This is your warning
Nowhere to hide, rapid extinction, the planet’s plea has been heard
This is the night, reborn to fill the, reptilian prophecy
Dereliction called their name
Nowhere to hide, rapid extinction, the planets plea has been heard
This is the night, reborn to fill the, reptilian prophecy
Rising from their graves they came
Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise... and stand!

Fossilized, skeletons, catch their breath
Binding flesh, scales and blood, cold as death
The mission burned to memory, a single-minded rage
Bringing the merciless cleansing phase
For our abuse we have been judged, and found guilty
Unknowingly, we will be struck from existence

Sprinting in packs, they come to hunt, human creatures
Ravenous bunch, seeking to quench, thirst for warm blood

And the massacre unfolds
No survivors, no restraint, all must perish, for the planet’s sake
A jurassic genocide
Slashed and mangled, chewed to bits, man’s brief era, is now ending
Hunting every night, human parasite
As our blood is poured
Balance is restored
Track Name: Rat King
No more can we fight these, impulses to feed,
Bound by our desire, brotherhood of greed
Instinct engaging, mind override
Bludgeon everything that moves, pulverize all of them
My own will to live must be stronger than anyone

“But what’s this buzzing in my skull? Some muttering ghost, a vague resonating suggestion. A blurred figure swimming into view. Whose blood is on my hands? Whose blood is on my hands?”

Focus

“Wavering focus, a face flickers and changes, a stream of strange ideas impeding blind determination. Wasn’t there some other way? Wasn’t there some other way? Wasn’t there some other way?”

But this carnage feels so good
Natural selection has no mercy, for the lesser there is but death
Natural selection has no mercy, shed your honor, and save your precious neck
We face extinction, we hear it’s steps, we find the horrors, what fear does to men
Survival must be mine, survival must be mine

"But wait wait wait. What was I before this moment? I swore I saw a phantom with my face in some kind of faded torrent of people. I know them. I knew them. I knew them."

Focus

"Shit, it's fading away. I can't seem to hold onto anything. But does it matter? I cannot possibly be more than I am in this moment, for there is only now and the task at hand. I swore there was another way."

Fuck it, natural selection has no mercy, for the lesser, there is but death
Natural selection has no mercy, shed your honor, and save your neck
Pride is weakness, lost and frantic, ravenous tide, trampled bodies pile
Groping masses hopelessly climb, writhing tower rise, upward, rise
Madness has it’s hold, broken bodies fold
Avalanche of meat, absorbing the fleet, mangled bits abused, pressurized and fused
Gurgling colossus, flesh and bone congealed, paralyzed and helpless
The fate of the Rat King
Sealed
