Track Name: Blinding Iron
FELL FROM HEAVEN
WITH [ATTENUANT] SPEARS
AND BOLTS LEADEN WITH CURSES
SURVEY THE NEW LAND
A GAZE [THAT CARRESSES] ACROSS DUNES
AND FLIES LIKE WIND [OVER CLIFFS]

WRATH OF GODS OVER LAND AND SEA
CONSCIOUSNESS BURIED IN DEEP

FOR OUR STAR CAST INTO CHAOS
WE CAST ASIDE WISDOM AND REJOICE IN IGNORANCE
WE SCREAM JUBILANT AS THE IRON BLINDS
LIKE BUTTERFLIES, WE LOSE OUR MOUTH TO ADULTHOOD
Track Name: Recede In Light
WE RECEDE IN LIGHT
HAIL
THE AIR ELECTRIC IN CRACKLING SOUND
THE LOW-HANGED FRUIT LAYS BARE ON THE VINE
A PERSECUTING SIGN

A FALLING OUT THE LEAVES
THE WORDS WITHIN THE WATER
AN ANIMALS FACE
THAT CAN ONLY LAUGH AT DEATH

ALL DRY WITH FLESH INVIOLATE
IT ISN'T PAIN AND IT ISN'T PARADISE

LET THE FIELD GLOW WITH SPLITTING EMBERS
LET THE CALVES RUN INTO THE FOREST
LET THE SIGN HANG OVER THE DOORWAY
Track Name: Pure Light Society
POLARIZE
INNATE KNOWN
BEJEWELED
HIGHER SELF
ATOMIZED INFINITY [OF SPOILS]
NEVERMORE
ENCUMBERED BY
[THE BITTERNESS OF] THE PAST
I'VE SEALED
ALL THE DOORS BEHIND
A LIFE THAT WOULD [HAVE CONSUMED ME]

EVER BURNING STANDS OF GOLDEN
FIELDS LAY FALLOW
HECTARES UNPLANTED
EARTHLY TROUBLES
IN THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT
ABANDONED
Track Name: They Know Nothing Else
BUZZING DRONES RELEASE FROM THE PUPAE
THE PERVASIVE SMELL A HIERARCHY
THEIR EVERY SENSE IS BENT TO FIND
THE NECTAR [IS THE CORE OF THEIR BELIEF]

IN BLAZING VIOLET
THE EARTH OPENS UP FOR THEM

THE QUEEN GESTURES FROM HER CHAMBER
ALL THE WAITING DRONES SENSE THE DANGER

RUNNING DOWN BLOT OUT THE LIGHT
LASHING TONGUES REAP OUR HARVEST
GNAWING TEETH CAN CLEAVE OUR NUMBER
INSATIABLE MAW DEATH VORTEX

BOWING LOW AFTER THE SHATTER
GRINNING TEETH INSIDE THE SKULL

SPRAWLING FROM THEIR CRUMBLING WRECKAGE
FEEDING ON THEIR BUTCHERED DEAD
WORKERS BUSILY SECRETE
THEY MUST REBUILD

THE SUN RAINS DOWN ON ALL
THEY KNOW NOTHING ELSE
