Track Name: Porcupine
The potential of progress is null, defeated from the start, a desperate incarnate
Each face is barren of life, living in fear of the darkness, ears focused to every step
Beckoning for new blood, but finding only victims, imploring to change
And I can’t see the point, in a revival of the past, a necessity for rebirth

I hunger for something pure
At the expense of my own life
Or at price of another’s
fleeting desires become more evident
An affliction towards the forbidden
Our lust projects itself
All for some self satisfaction

Bodies sway to the soundtrack of the falsely enlightened
Morality costs more than it’s worth
An embryo feeds off the despair of the weak
Each ominous truth falls on deaf ears

Lives rupture from incomplete foundations
Siren calls have never sounded so reassuring
The only chance for salvation lies before us
The final trial is the integrity of being

Ridden with shame, automatic default,
Bodies lacking souls, nostalgists appalled
Moneys all for nothing if they can’t stall the flood
Dishonored deaths for forsaken sons
