Track Name: The Void
We feel the void...

Fading light
and I stare into the sky
The endless black
surrounds a heartless star
Our senses
smell the pest of worlds afar
The stench of tech
imprisoning all their life

We feel the void
We sense corruption
We have an enemy
Infesting our cells

In his chest
The beating sound has gone
It was replaced
by a soulless piece of junk
There is no life
no creature in that shell
it was not raised,
it never learned

We feel the void
We sense corruption
We have an enemy
Infesting our cells

We need to clean
our arteries
We need to neutralize the virus

He will destroy
the world we know
We need to neutralize the virus

We feel the void
We sense corruption
We have an enemy
Infesting our cells
Track Name: Feeding Territory
Tear its shell apart and feast on what's inside
the sturdiest husk fails to stand against the claw
we'll expose the weaklings body by poisonous spit and fangs
corroding and dissolving the shell that holds the flesh

Destroy the carapace
Destroy the body
Eat its flesh
Eat its power

Neutralize the virus
The alien in our veins
Find its weakest part
And grind it to grains
Use your teeth, my children,
your claws, fangs and stings:
you do it for the swarm,
your unified queen and kings.

A storm of twirling tentacles will rain down on your head
after that a garden full of teeth prepares your death
An earthquake's worth of hoofs will stomp you down into the mud
Your carcass will be liquified and fed to hungry grubs


Destroy the carapace
Destroy the body
Eat its flesh
Eat its power

Neutralize the virus
The alien in our veins
Find its weakest part
And grind it to grains
Use your teeth, my children,
your claws, fangs and stings:
you do it for the swarm,
your unified queen and kings.
Track Name: The Infinity Room
Fall into the hole
and watch your scenes corrupted
by a simple fang injection
decomposing the one you love
You made the mistake
Set your foot into our kingdom
For this you will suffer
Like we're doing from you

You went through a door
into our star system
you will find yourself
surrounded by the void

A thousand blinking suns and flares
between withering nebula;
in the middle
you're stranded,
empty like the void itself

Can you trust your eyes?
Do you believe them?
All this is happening
You're floating away

You went through a door
into our star system
you will find yourself
surrounded by the void

A thousand blinking suns and flares
between withering nebula;
take a last look
at the stars,
in a few moments you will die

The life is running out your wounds
We're draining all that's left of you
Beginning with your faith
ending with your hope

We locked you into
the inside of your own head
when you were eaten by the cave
The stars will form
pictures of your greatest fears
you won't survive it; nothing does

You went through a door
into our star system
you will find yourself
surrounded by the void

A thousand blinking suns and flares
between withering nebula;
in the middle
you're stranded,
empty like the void itself

Take a last look at the stars
and the fading nebula
surrounded by the void
in the...
Infinity Room
Track Name: Desperate Measures
The thing invaded our body
cutting flesh and intestines
it made us blind
it made us numb
it made us deaf
it made us cold

The thing burned our heart to ashes
It sliced through our synapses
Defenses Up! We must prevent it
from erasing our existence

This is a call
to the unpleasant, desperate measures;
a call we never thought we'd make

There's only pain
and the feel of slowly dying
cold and knowing
we sense the words "it's over"
we must devour it
the beast inside our body
solve it in acid
then give it to the waters

The thing will take us down
like a senseless virus
it will never stop and leave
we just hope to barely survive
Defenses Up! We must prevent it
from erasing our existence

This is a call
to the unpleasant, desperate measures;
a call we never thought we'd make

Defenses Up! We must prevent it
from erasing our existence

This is a call
to the unpleasant, desperate measures;
a call we never thought we'd make
Track Name: Purification
Look what made its way;
what is it waiting for?
We will accept our fate, since there's nothing we can do.

It won't hesitate
May it throw its might against us
bring the light that burns the filthy flesh off of our bones

Will it save itself?
When it sends us back
into the endless black, devoid of stars and dreams

How come the way back to nothingness
leads through the fire into the dark
the holy flame lights up the path
while our eyes begin to close

There is a play
taking place behind the curtain
all while it's blind to see the wold surrounding it

It's staying here
forever on stage
eventually the audience leaves and the void will take its place

Does it really think it's fighting the end boss,
o an island in the middle of the sea of stars?
The point's been made, there's really nothing to fight,all what's left is your mind playing tricks on you.

We feel the end
We sense the darkness
The hunt is over,
the fittest may survive

Destroy our body
Destroy our last free thought
Burn the tumors
From our bones

We take a last look at the stars
Before we fade into the dark
We've seen the virus win
We've seen our time has come

We feel the void...
