Music and Lyrics by ''Overcliff''.
Recorded in ''Made in Hell'' studio.


The great War!
The great Drought!
The great Plague!
Three were the faces of God,
that cracked the skin
of both Earth and Man.
Shriveled became the womb
of the great Mother, and devoid. Wanting.

And its worshipers weeped,
scavenging the remnants of another time,
gnawed to ruins by both winds and waves,
sultriness and sand, tar and then fire.

Taint and corruption grew to those
holding the exalted means
that brought the mass genocide.

And the weak pleaded, then implored,
then beseeched, then shrieked
blasphemies and prayers alike.
Crimson filth ran harmoniously,
liberating the anguished.

Drenched in odium,
they witnessed
the profound macrocosmic
shattering in disbelief.

Yet they sensed the cosmos suffering
in sub-atomic decay.
And then they saw the monuments of peace
in the feverish colours of the plague.
And then the world was silenced...

Barren earth devours the horizon.
The sea now shelters only worms.
Vermins plough the earth with sterile seeds.
Wars echoe through timeless intersections.

Memories of home turned to dust in our mouths.
Ashes of hollowed grounds flowed through our veins.
Our flesh paid the tribute to the fallen suns.

Incarcerated within orbs of worlds colliding.
We swarm to reclaim pieces of our solitude.
Drawn to our cathartic introspection.

We exalt the depths.
We celebrate the marrow.
We eradicate contrast.
We burn the crossroads.
