Track Name: Photic
Darkened and plundered
By black shadows from the sky,
this land is dying
is running dry,

It grows sorrow, weak illusions,
Spreading fear and desperation
And we’re craving for hope
while crawling down on knees

(‘cause) our voices won’t be heard.
Your prayers won’t be accepted.
Our life won’t be protected
But reaped and eradicated without care

Mournful shadows
Fed by pain

Darkness rising
Burns us alive

Mankind is no longer human,
this land is running dry.
Feelings and emotions, they don’t grow from this burnt soil.
And we’re fighting for freedom,
while dragging heavy chains.

(‘cause) our voices won’t be heard.
Your prayers won’t be accepted.
Our life won’t be protected
But reaped and eradicated without care
Track Name: Pelagic
Life made of Lies, orders, and no explanations.
Is that true we’re born free
and then caged under rules?
Lobotomized and bound in our misery

Beings against beings, face against face
fighting an eternal, endless, pointless war
It’s Us against Us, sons of the same nature, under the tired gaze of our old, helpless mother

Will this be our end?
Darkness wants it to be so.
Survive or surrender? (Survive or Surrender?)

Now there’s a void, which once was existence
We are what we have, consumer machines

And noone takes a stand,
to set ourselves free
In which direction are we going,
by holding material possession so strong?

Will this be our end?
Darkness wants it to be so.
Survive or surrender? (Survive or Surrender?)
Track Name: Aphotic
In these days
our emotions are seized in touch-screen jails
We keep closed our small pixeled eyes,
and keeping locked our minds
an USB injection that will provide us life
Technological birth-control
Byte after byte,
File after file,
Lie after lie,

No choice to reboot
No choice to reborn
No way to fight

This system decides all your operations
Scan, print and send Us as digital informations
We’re losing flesh,
We’re losing consistence
Binary code is all about existence

Byte after byte,
File after file,
Lie after lie,

No choice to reboot
No choice to reborn
No way to fight
Track Name: Bathyal
Who is deciding for us? Who took control?
Invented our gods, invented our laws,
This system, perpetual machine,
breaks our legs and drinking blood
from our bruised knees.

This system engenders diversities through discriminations, wars and accusations
Existence became a property and feelings are reduced to a mere calculation

Piles of observant corpses, our souls are long time gone
Lost in the nothingness, on a path that’s still unknown

This system engenders diversities through discriminations, wars and accusations
Existence became a property and feelings are reduced to a mere calculation

We produce, we are profit, we’re just naive gears
Do we still want to be part of this engine which harvests
Death, sickness, decay and abominations
Do we still want to be part of this engine that left us hopeless


We produce, we are profit, we’re just naive gears
Track Name: Abyss
Gored eyes, we cannot see
Torn pieces of flesh and skin
Lack of strength in one last breath
Too weak to feel this freezing wind

The rage burns
Our strained hands
Our clenched fists
They claim revenge

It’s getting harder, our wounds are sore
But the flames are burning, our march is on
Lords of the dark, Who envenomed our souls
We are the damned, be ready for the war

The rage burns
Our strained hands
Our clenched fists
They claim revenge
Track Name: Demersal
So we designed ourselves
As the Alpha element
In this sick planet
Predators, exploiters,
Hungry for power
Eating like vultures,

Perched on poor people’s shoulders
Self-elected intelligent by our own science,
Lying on the morals set by religions

We occupied the top
of the hierarchy
Prevailing on nature, on feelings
With undisputed blind trust
Following the mass. Where’s this leading us?

Predators, exploiters,
Hungry for power
Eating like vultures
Track Name: Hadal
Hollow corpses
Hollow corpses

Floating bodies over the seafoam
Swollen limbs on the surface
Obstructed line of sight, no way to go ahead
‘Cause the pain increases as the muscles flex

Hollow corpses and blank stares everywhere

These waters have swallowed our souls
Black waters of oblivion
Our feeling's weight drown us
into this abyss of modern life

Hollow corpses and blank stares everywhere
Track Name: Benthic
Thousand thorns made of broken glass
Pierced our flesh, took away our dreams
These stains of blood are the undying mark
Of what we did to be alive

Safety is so frail,
The walls are collapsing
Blood will flow
This struggle has no end
The fog emerges
From these angry waves
And leaves us disoriented
Wants to drag us down

Our screams of vengeance
Are tearing down the sky
But seems no one will listen
We’re losing the aim
Undefeatable force
Darkness reigns here
Time is relentless
And the end is near

Thousand thorns made of broken glass
Pierced our flesh, took away our dreams
These stains of blood are the undying mark
Of what we did to be alive
