Lyrics

The Obliterationist

There’s money to be made in reeking havoc
When our leaders slaughter for personal gain
Provoking the underdogs
Until their fates are sealed

Time to overthrow
When it all boils over
It’s time to overthrow

Every day this hate erupts inside of me
It consumes my entire existence
When it all boils over

I’ll hold up my end
For the promises i made
Before my eyes turn black
To cleanse this place from weakness
I’m standing at the edge of my sanity
Beneath me lies only destruction

Our moral compass is non fucking existent
Still exploit for personal gain
We are reluctant to change
We are reluctant to change

I’ll hold up my end
For the promises i made
Before my eyes turn black
To cleanse this place from weakness
I’m standing at the edge of my sanity
Beneath me lies only destruction

Every day the hate erupts inside of me
To the point were it consumes
my entire existence
Every day the hate erupts inside of me

Every day the hate erupts inside of me
To the point were it consumes
my entire existence
When it all boils over
There is nowhere left for me to be
I was destined to end up here
Every day the hate erupts inside of me
The hate erupts inside of me

I’ll hold up my end
For the promises i made
Before my eyes turn black
To cleanse this place from weakness
I’m standing at the edge of my sanity
Beneath me lies only destruction

There’s nowhere left for me to be
I’m standing at the edge of my sanity
My concious will be set free
OBLITERATE ME

 

Distress Signal
 
I’ve come to the conclusion
That our path is set
To lead us to our graves
Dug for generations
Our perception never changed
The final price for our misconduct
Of this world
 
There’s no way to bring us back
To the times where we thrived
All we can do
Is to erase it all
Past decisions will bury us all
 
These days we’re led by the weak
With the social justice prophecy
My allegiance is to overthrow
Fight it hands on
with knuckles and bones
These cowards have been hiding in plain sight
Ever since
 
Our perception never changed
Spawning the idiocracy
That we live in today
Mindless followers without a cause
Blind faith got us here
It will be the end of us all
 
Our cowardice will bury us
As we carry the weight of our fathers
We’ll serve our time in tombs
 
These days we’re led by the weak
With the social justice prophecy
My allegiance is to overthrow
Fight it hands on
with knuckles and bones
These cowards have been 
Hiding in plain sight
Ever since
 
 
My allegiance is to overthrow
Fight it hands on
with knuckles and bones
These cowards have been 
hiding in plain sight
Ever since
 
I’ll lead us to our graves
Dug for generations
The final price for our misconduct
Of this world 
We are the violation
In this turmoil
We pay the final price
for our misconduct
As we carry the weight of our fathers
We’ll serve our time in tombs


The Destruction Path

I am on a destructive path
I am on a destructive path

I am on a destructive path
My anger awakened by the last straw
The final tragedy
That pushed me over the edge
In this deseased existence
I rid this world of greed
This vessel is infected
All dead inside

In this world where ignorance
Gets you a fucking paycheck
The hunger for abundance
Knows no boundaries

Within all shattered mirrors
Reflects a broken man
Worn down like cattle
All dead inside

In this world where ignorance
Gets you a fucking paycheck
The hunger for abundance
Knows no boundaries

When we are neck deep
Into the downfall
How can you
Stand aside and watch

By the end of this day
All leeches be extinct
You must be held accountable
For this stillborn legacy

Within all shattered mirrors
Reflects a broken man
Worn down like cattle
A fractured spine leaves no resistance
In this world where ignorance
Gets you a fucking paycheck
The hunger for abundance
Knows no boundaries

Blodvite (feat. Chad Kapper)

We’ve reached a dead end
Our final wish to putrify
Humanity won’t stand
The test of time
We’ve abandoned all that is real
The most deceiving of them all

This exhausted concept
We are depleted
There will be no resurgence
We seek to be erased
Buried by our loathsome lies
We are the feeble species

Liquid iron rains from dismal skies
As i’m swallowed by flames
Our obscure conception

We’ve abandoned all that is real
False visionaries
The most deceiving of them all
Humanity won’t stand
The test of time
False visionaries

Acting under a false god
We are masters of deceit
For we are imposters
Artificial to our very core
We are the feeble species

Liquid iron rains from dismal skies
As i’m swallowed by flames
Our obscure conception
Of the reality before us
As i’m swallowed by flames
The humanity won’t stand
The test of time

As i’m swallowed by flames
As i’m swallowed by flames

Omnipotent

A creature in exile
All bridges burned
The false messiah
Dead on arrival
So fragile and weak
On a misguided quest
 
Like the omnipotent god
Of fucking everything
That you claim to be
Still so fragile and weak
 
Everything’s broken
A hollow nest of lies
Alone in this dystopia
Set in reality
For everything that you’ve built
Originates from deceit
 
You are the false messiah
A parenthesis in time
The hollow nest of lies
On a misguided quest
 
Left broken
Mute and blinded
 
Everything’s broken
A hollow nest of lies
Alone in this dystopia
Set in reality
For everything that you’ve built
Originates from deceit
 
A creature in exile
So fragile and weak
Dead on arrival
The false messiah
 
Like the omnipotent god
Of fucking everything
That you claim to be
I see through you
 
 

Below The Threshold (feat. Fredrik Söderberg)

Forget not the actions of mine

You’re treading past my anger line
Black blood overflow my veins
I’ll cut you
To fill the void
Carve you blind
To set you free

In this state of mind
I’m a victim of false prosperity
As detrimental as a human can be
I am the violation
I am your creation

I’m drowning in a shallow grave
For the greater good
For the greater good
My remorse counts for nothing
I was always the enemy

I’ll cut you
To fill the void

To set you free
Carve you blind
You choose not to see
You wore me down
Repulsive beyond belief

I rise to the challenge
For a slate swept clean
To reset this place
Back to what it once was
To set the record straight
I rise to the challenge
For the greater good
For the greater good


I’m drowning in a shallow grave
For the greater good
For the greater good
My remorse counts for nothing
I was always the enemy

You’ll wither into nothingness
Gone and forgotten
Dead as history
The false prosperity
Gone and forgotten
I was always the enemy
The enemy
I am the violation

Unborn, Reborn

Man is born into an empty void
Staring into the consuming black
We are nothing
A glitch in this malfunctioned system

We are hollow
Of no significance
Yet we seek answers
In this spiral
Of self-contempt
The way paved forward
Is altered by past crimes
Emptiness defines us

Silent observers
From a safe distance

Caused by our insufficient composure
To make the hard decisions
As the world crumbles beneath us
The greatest hardships
Are caused by our very existence

The most magnificent of flaws
In this malfunctioned system

The punishment will be unforgiving
We are easily swept away
Scorched of the surface

Caused by our insufficient composure
To make the hard decisions
As the world crumbles beneath us
The greatest hardships
Are caused by our very existence

Our history scoured
Erradicated from this soil
We are hollow
Of no significance

Yet we seek answers
In this spiral
Of self-contempt
We are nothing

A glitch in this malfunctioned system

Reverse-engineer the planet
To fulfill our needs
Greed cuts deep
Into our defining character
At the very core
There’s only hunger
In our current state of mind
Raised with ill intent
Nothingness
Defines the perfect life

 

My Manifest

Every day is pitch black
From disinformation abuse
It’s hard to grasp
The magnitude of your decline

Sculpting my manifest

I’m done with you and the self-posessed
arrogant fuck you’ve become
Betrayal is the very
Foundation of this relation

It’s hard to grasp
The magnitude of your decline
It’s hard to grasp
The magnitude of your decline

You’re made of a thousand stitches
Put together by a broken self
We were destined to end here

This was always the end game
As we sink into the violent abyss
Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest

It’s hard to grasp
The magnitude of your decline
The stench of failure
Never ceases
Betrayal is the very
Foundation of this relation

In human flesh
My obituary
Written in your remains

This was always the end game
As we sink into the violent abyss
Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest

I’ll use you to set an example

Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest
In your remains

Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest
Sculpting my manifest

Sculpting my manifest

Become The Nihilist

These hateful times
A reaction to the molds
We’re shaped in
Every injustice
Thats been brought upon us
Through the years

Our ignorance bleeds through
Countless acts of selfishness
We’ve been shaped in every injustice
Through the years

I am the first one to break free
To awaken and to see

I’ve brought the truth into play
A great following will gather
For i am the nihilist
For I am the nihilist
Coming for the great execution

Defiance is in my nature
Leading towards inner war
We’ve been shaped in every injustice
Brought upon us through the years

The key to human deprivation
Fed with propaganda
Is cut in stone

I’ve brought the truth into play
A great following will gather
For I am the nihilist
For I am the nihilist
Coming for the great execution

We are all suffering
From this exposure
We are the greatest liability
The key to our deprivation
Is cut in stone
Defiance is in our nature
Still we’re led by sheep

I’ve brought the truth into play
A great following will gather
I am the nihilist
Nihilist
Coming for the great execution
We are the greatest liability
As the world deteriorate
I am the nihilist
Nihilist
Coming for the great execution

Extinct

I’ve caught a glimpse of whats to come
A sinking world
Suffocated by submissive views
The deafening silence speaks volumes
I’m heading towards
The most dangerous path
Always cold and broken

I’m drifting backwards
I’m far beyond saving
In my quest to find solace
Far from here
In this turmoil
I’m far beyond saving
In this turmoil
I drown

Chasing a new perception
Hunting ghosts
I cannot comprehend the depth
of this betrayal
to myself

A sinking world
Suffocated by submissive views
The deafening silence speaks volumes
I’m heading towards
The most dangerous path
Always cold and broken
In this decline

I look at this nothingness
Of what we’ve become
A species in free fall
Born in a hostile nest
Raised in anger and greed
We are the extinction

A sinking world
Suffocated by submissive views
The deafening silence speaks volumes
The most dangerous path
Always cold and broken
In this decline
I withdraw below surface
The last breath of a pointless life

The end of all before me
Open lungs, breathe in
Liquid death
As I drown
