"Engraved..." exists as a bridge. Between despondency and turmoil of the past, and uncertainty in the present. A knife at the throat of an enemy. A bloody howl of contempt. History can not be forgotten, but it may be conquered.

Track Name: Engraved Upon Bleached Bone
from mouths of deceit venom spills forth
viscid black filth, thick as clotted blood
seeps between grinning teeth
hissing tongues, vomit lies
traitor scum
liars, enemy
vile poisons infecting all
black veins, corruption manifested

long years wasted
wounded and betrayed
suspended in purgatory
vital essence slowly bleeding

this place, a fucking tomb
sealed and sunken, mossed over, forgotten
i lay rotted, eroded in stale air
flesh peeled away, bleached white bone
nails struck toward the marrow
bitterness and woes engraved

far beyond, there exists salvation
escape from a looming dark
that seeks to consume

I see it, the full shape
I see the true face of deception
eyes wide, white as canvas
inked black by delusion
piercing deep, endless burning death

i am risen up
bold with unrelenting hatred
aching thirst for vengeance
violence of a thousand wars
tightening the grip
i feel the crack of bone
purest satisfaction
the ecstasy of suffocation

as you have stolen
so shall i reclaim
until the final breath
escapes into a cloud of dust

meek light extinguished
cruelly stolen, put to embers
by sleight of hand, in whispers
in shadow and illusion
a litany of hollow words
ephemeral as a cold wind
vanishing into the aether
I am death, look upon me and despair
