Track Name: Unholy
Endless abomination, our new code of morality
A perverse and unholy plague, that lies deep within all of man, the wretched spawn of the earth

The martyr's blood cries out from below
Jealous rage leading to hateful transgression
The judgemental bastard son of Westboro cries out
"Repent, or face hellfire!"
"God hates fags!"
"Thank God for AIDS!"

I, the Pope, bow to no one
Except to God
I am the most powerful man in the world
My minions will spread my will throughout the nations, bringing countless souls, along with mine own to Purgatory,
And by a handsome price, can buy their way up to the kingdom of God

The lust of the flesh entices her
But later leads her desperation
Abortion, the fate of the unborn fetus
Damnation before conception
Torn from the womb
Deprivation of birth
Why should the unborn have to pay for the irresponsibility of the living?

Forced adornment of the impious doctrine:

Amplectumir iniquitas in nomini Patri, et Fili, et Spiritu Santi

The devil rejoiced in his nightmarish realm,
But was soon stricken with fear at the sight of the empty grave

The disease of humanity...
Track Name: Divine Abomination (Feat. Matthew Plunkett of Abated Mass of Flesh)
Enter the worship of sculpted images,
Embodiments of man's own frailty
Worthless figures given heretical divinity
Seen as gods instead of mirrors of desolation

Fall to your knees and pray to dead gods
Like moths chasing ghostly flames
True hope in false deities
Cry out to your gods that never were and never will be

Oh, you men of little faith
So easily fallen prey to the blind devotion of your hearts and souls to Satan's deceit

Pray to your fraudulent deities,
The nonexistent beings you hold so high
None of them will hear your screams as you're devoured by the flames

The upholding of your worthless idols And the faith in them you show will be the greatest folly you shall ever know

Hell's gate opens wide to the practicioners of this divine abomination
Track Name: Doctrine of Corruption (Feat. Brian Goetz of Sarcophagi)
The masses on their knees,
Praying to the Virgin Mary
A truly hapless sight for my eyes
Praying to a false and powerless deity

The masses on their knees,
Asking for guidance and the protection of their homes
How can she protect you?

The Son knew of his impending death,
About the agony He was to endure
But what a love so divine and pure He had to have
To sacrifice Himself for beings as wretched as mankind

The Christ is the savior
Not this Virgin Mary
But of course, you will never know this
Because I forbid it
I shall twist and pervert the gospel of Christ to forge my own corrupt doctrine

I will remove Christ from all aspects of life
Scatter His sheep like the wolf that I am
I will deny the masses of salvation
They will bow at my feet alone

Lay waste to the scriptures
Erase the Word from existence
I instill the new doctrine,
One that spreads my ideas of greed, perversity and blasphemy

Deny the masses access to their Holy Bibles
Deprive them of spiritual renewal
If you want to stop people from getting saved,
You just have to stop them from prospering

Appointed by high priests and bishops
My title as God on earth is ensured
How I laugh as the people follow me so blindly,
Unaware of my true allegiance to the Deceiver

My minions spread to the four corners of this world
Forcing the new doctrine down the throats of millions
The light of God that was once so pure
Now blackened by the hearts of men

This power shall be exclusive to none but me
I will spill the blood of thousands before I let this power pass from me
Embracing violence in the name of God

Gathering my army of priests and bishops,
We will wage conquest upon God himself
We will defy his prophecies and overthrow the Trinity
The architect, fallen to his creation

We will take this world for ourselves
Our perverse ideology the new universal law
By the power vested in me, you will now renounce the blood of the Lamb

I will enslave the peoples of this earth
With the Truth re-written by my scribes
It becomes irrelevant
The only thing that matters now is my monetary gain by the formation of religion

It shall be that salvation is denied without the proper ransom
The blood of the Lamb now insufficient,
Entrance into heaven now granted by the amounts of gold and silver in your pockets
Failure to deliver results in eternal the wandering of Purgatory,
Realm of which is neither of heaven nor hell

By the indoctrination of religion,
Man will fall even deeper into the inescapable void from whence he fell
Never to catch a glimpse of the divine light of God again
Their souls denied eternal rest by the greed and hatred in their hearts...
Track Name: Absolution
The holy city of Jerusalem,
Now a breeding ground for the unholy
Barbaric Islamic worship lies behind its walls
Festering with sin, all light has died

I call for holy war
For the destruction of its inhabitants
Purification of the heathen
Through the bloodlust of God's army

Under Jesus Christ, our lord, may you struggle for Jerusalem
Struggle that you may drive the Islamic faith into the ground

With the Cross on our chests, and weapons of war
We will reclaim Jerusalem, tear down its walls
We will wash these holy lands with your heathen blood

Plunder and massacre the wretched in the name of God
And destroy all other faith for the glory of the Pope and Catholic church

Our holy cause now cast aside
To fulfill our own lust for blood and wealth
Slaughter of the innocent
Men, women and children alike

Slicing your heads off
Burning you to death
Rain of arrows upon you
Violence in the name of God

After your decimation, we begin to loot your homes and mosques
Swallow your precious objects
We will dismember you to find them
Disembowelment revealing the wealth you tried to protect

Mercenaries of Christ, in payment for reclaiming the Holy Land, your immaculate father absolves you of all your sins

How blind they truly are
Carrying out the will of the Deceiver in the name of Christ
No man can absolve them of sin
A truth kept from reaching the surface

Through the propaganda of absolution, is my will carried out
False redemption for these "holy warriors"
Assured by the bishops and priests under me,
My salesmen of salvation
Track Name: Genocide of the Faithful (Feat. Duncan Bentley of Vulvodynia)
Lay waste to the faith
Cleanse this earth of the presence of Christ
Erase His legacy
Purge this earth of the Holy Ghost

Hunting His children like wolves preying on the sheep
Kill the sheperd and the sheep will scatter


Gather the sons of the living God
Oh, what a fate is in store for them
Prepare them for the various tortures we have planned for them

Lead them to the gallows,
Lynch them without remorse
Make them suffer until they renounce the name of God
Then end their lives in unholy victory

Burn them at the stakes
Feed them to the lions
Tie them to anchors,
Let them drown in the sea
Stone them, bleed them
Skin them alive
Break every bone in their fragile bodies

All those who fear Him shall be persecuted
Hunted down in the name of Satan
We will not rest until we stop the spread of God's truth

Bound, tortured and buried
They will face immense tribulation
They will soon learn what true fear is
Faced with a choice: to bear the mark of the Beast, or decapitation

My God, I cry out to you
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I shall fear no evil, for He is with me
For we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us

Killing the Son of God
Rip out his supple heart
Then we eat it
Stabbing the face of God
Rip out his supple heart
Then we eat it
Track Name: The Holy Heretic (Feat. Matt Turkington of Internal Devour)
Beware of the wolf in sheep's clothing,
Proclaiming the word of God
While devouring the flesh of His children
Embodiment of heresy, preaching only lies
Instill my re-written doctrine upon the church

Head of the Vatican, the great whore of the earth
Monetary gain, the cause for the obscurity of the faith

I will reign over this world and all who inhabit it
My word shall become truth
The voice of Satan spewing forth from my blasphemous tongue

The earthly embodiment of God himself,
A pervert draped in silken robes
Stained by the blood of innocents
I inherit divinity from my fathers before me

Though deemed as holy, I heed the Deceiver's voice,
Taking the nuns and raping them in secret,
Forcefully implanting my seed into every last one of their virgin wombs
And when the bastard infants are born,
They will be baptized then sodomized, if the holy water doesn't drown them

Mothers weep as their children are abducted,
Taken to the parish of the holy heretic

Behind the walls of this bloodhouse, the little children are violated,
Forced to succumb to my will
To quench my paedophilic appetite
Defilement of the innocent in the house of God
Track Name: Judgement
No lyrics. We just had fun and went at it on this one
Track Name: Transformation into a Putrid Mass (Traumatomy cover)
Incubation of nuclear sludge
Encouraging super human species
Transfuse my weak feeble capsule
Introducing a superior immortality

Infinite - divine - heinous - absolute - ominous
Subjector - destroyer - I will reign!!!

Reversal, rejection
My body is now regressing

Body fluids leaking
Skin to bone transformations has begun
Hair loss, skin blistering
Must infuse more to feed

The rotting, and the smell, my appendages
Are slowly withering away
Dripping ooze of which once pumped life into me
Melting composition into a puddle of once I reigned
Everlasting divinity miscarried
Into a transformation of putrid mass
I am dead!!!
Track Name: Praenuntius Descends (Vulvodynia cover) (Bonus track)
Lumbering through dimensions and eating all the planets whole, leaving nothing in its path, I'm sure this creature has no soul.
His course is set for the Milky Way. He believes we have a role to play, hearing every word we say! Our galaxy is bound to pay!

Lumbering through dimensions and eating all the planets whole, leaving nothing in its path, I'm sure this creature has no soul. His course is set for the Milky Way. He believes we have a role to play, hearing every word we say! Our galaxy is bound to pay!

Thee outer planets of our galaxy are an appetizer for this beast! We run around like gluttonous cattle oblivious to the fact our death is imminent. Chaos from the sky.

Praenuntius shape-shifts into human form before entering our atmosphere! It will infiltrate our species and consume our knowledge before devouring the earth whole!

Infiltrating our dimension with only the worst intentions, wondering who brought him here! Bent to devour all the so called people of power! Infiltrating our dimension with only the worst intentions, wondering who brought him here! Bent to devour all the so called people of power!

Thee harbinger of a new age lurks withing our walls stealing our knowledge! See!

Working its way into our society, eating all who get in his way, killing fiends as water rises, eating all who get in his way.

Praenuntius shape-shifts into human form before entering our atmosphere! It will infiltrate our species and consume our knowledge before devouring the earth whole!

This being takes on the form of anybody as it crushes in its monstrous jaws. Able to take on any size and any form, this is the destroyer of worlds.

This being see's things the way they truly are on our barren planet! "These creatures made it so and they must suffer."
