Pre-order “Universal Death Church”

 

‘Qliphotic Alpha’ lyrics

I keep running but the time is slipping out

From the void that was my head

Where does it end?

What is right?

It matters not

Left to rot

Life is over but the fight won’t leave

As the light pours out of me

Where does it end?

What is right?

Dragged down

To endless night

I feel your judgement stick into my skin

When I taste the fever in your eyes

Shining black sun

A visionless sky

As I become

Suicide juggernaut

Pathways laid by the snake

Our piss and shit is love and hate

Where does it end?

What is right?

It matters not

Left to rot

Unexplored shame, sickening rays

Lifeless condition furthers our gains

Where does it end?

What is right?

Dragged down

To endless night

Shining black sun

A visionless sky

As I become

Suicide juggernaut

I killed the dream right before the shit

Like still life a numb mind hurts

It’s in the face of obsession masking a cancer

Life cast the shadow

The dark pours out of me
