Track Name: The Gates Are Open
The gates are open

And the choir for the iconoclast sings a hymn
Through a thousand tongues, with a feverish passion
For the everlasting raging fires, reaching the crumbling skyline
Embracing the falling world

The foundations rumble and the icons bleed
Stigmatas unnailed, deceived and bereaved
Through the flesh of an iconoclast

Towards the all-eating, eternal flames
Silencing the hopeless woes
Throught the current of glowing ashes
And the brimstone winds

Eternal hunger of enlightenment - The gates are open
Now feast with its knowledge - The gates are open
Become the flames, become the fire - The gates are open
And embrace the flesh of a fallen god - The gates are open

The old snakes descend and the altars bleed
The ouroborous of death spreading its seed

Behold the screaming horns reaching the horizon
And hear its endless lamentations
The endless tidal waves arising from the abyss
Hungering the monuments and tearing them down

See the falling walls of flesh, feel the hungering flames
And see the ropes waiting in the rotten old gallows
Above the coal-blackened forgotten graves

The gates are open

So embrace the flesh of a fallen god
And feast with its knowledge
Become the flames, become the fire

The gates are open
Track Name: The Mighty Deceiver
The tides of spiritual decay slowly rising
Breathless cores of flesh, now sinking and drowning
Crying and bleeding, singing their woes
Reading words of hope utterly denied

Nails for believers, hammer for light bearer
The endless bloodstream for the mighty deceiver

The dreams of spiritual awakening
The pages written with ashes
A view of the kingdom gone
And those embers glow

At the verge of a new path opening
Welcoming the dawn with hammer and nails
Baptized with tears and disgrace
Unlock the gates, self-sacrifice for true fate

Welcoming the dawn with hammer and nails
Scarred through the flesh in the name of the faith
Bleeding for their blessed words
Scarred for the rotten, desecrated core

Nails for believers, hammer for light bearer
The endless bloodstream for the mighty deceiver

Open the gates for a path of an iconoclast
Track Name: The Kingdom Gone
Crawling towards the false enlightenment
Kneeling against the wordless embrace
No higher strenght for those hopeless prayers
Useless echoes in the house of their faith

Those men of faith pleading for tomorrow
Eternally searching for the promised hope
The hollow paths for these crucified minds
And their endless crave towards the rotten halls of fate

Doomed are those roads of false enlightenment
When they seek for a glory, they'll find distress

Bleeding for the kingdom gone

The burden of endless weight
Tied unto them to carry
It's the grief that every man holds
Towards their stoned hearts

Blessed through the false enlightenment
Bleeding for the kingdom gone
Track Name: The Ropes of No Hope
Vast are the halls of eternity
Yet filled with worms crawling inside
Those are the tombs for misguided souls
Their holy temples swarming with flies

Everything dies, above and below
Withered lives in their earthly gallows

The ropes of no hope, the path of an iconoclast

The wordless prayers fade onto deaf ears
Those throats were too tied for a word
As their skin is rubbing thin

Everything dies, above and below
Withered lives in their earthly gallows

The temple of flesh bleeding
Through the wounds of a fallen god

Reverence towards the iconoclast
A veneration of an utter strength
Entombed in abysmal caverns

Everything dies, above and below
Withered lives in their earthly gallows

The ropes of no hope, the path of an iconoclast

The temple of flesh bleeding
Through the scars of a fallen god

Written into the sacred scripts
Scarred on the rotting skin
Track Name: The Flesh of a Fallen God
Marked with wounds and scars
Is this flesh of a fallen god
Kneeling amid a world of ruins
Dying
