Track Name: Gehenna
Believed by servants
They’ve no hope of death
Nothing but riddles
I won’t steal a victory

Burning is no answer
I’ve nothing to offer but blood

Then, on the third day
Begin to live at once
Rise, like lions after slumber
Who wants to be crucified?
Track Name: Mortar and Pestle
Athanasius goes against the world
Far be it from us
The danger of thinking
Weary the path that does not challenge
The tyranny of the commonplace

The mother of crime
The power to change
Between the essence and descent falls shadow
The stillness in the room
But it does move
Some revelation is at hand
Track Name: Orphan Mind
No man can
Reduce the world
I hear the message
But my faith is weak

An orphan afraid
To tell even himself

Sweep the sons
Of Adam down
Art may improve
Our own undoing
Track Name: Disturb
This Hunger
I’ll endure
To whom could I turn
Thwart the proud
Live unknown
Do I dare disturb

The universe?
This longing
Come follow me
Let the world babble

God playing a fool
So outraged
By this silence
They are not long,
The laughter and the weeping

Something greater
Than chastity
The world stands on absurdities
Track Name: Seeming to Be
Money is time
A day, an hour, a moment
He wishes that he, too, had a wound

A canker to every conscience
The wicked happy
Go forward always, an equation
Track Name: Contrarian
Midway on our life’s journey
A tattered coat upon a stick
I believe the stars
Sustain and abstain
Let all be imperfect

Nature, in her indifference
Uttering a new word
We have given our hearts away
I know everything but myself
