Becoming the prey of entrancing state
Your mind is becoming a portal
Falling into an open space of evil

Mongrels are thrashing flesh to bleeding shreds
Parasites infect the insides of decapitated heads
Spectres of a higher mind become the new creators
But you, my friend, are dead...
And still dying

Becoming the prey of pagan worship
Your death-life is nearing an end
Captors are exchanging you for new evils

Maggots are the saviors, they clear the land
Lords of this abyss rule the new nation by the hand
Wailing, fiendish bards play ritualistic songs
In the hourglass of time, you are but a grain of sand

Creation of a better Hell
Totalitarian leaders dwell
In this pit of putrid smells
We need more

Time is the thing that you don't need
For every moment is an evil deed
Upon your entire plebian creed
We can't get

Out of the gates some have strayed
And come back forlorn and frayed
To shreds of entrails and decayed
There must be

More objects don't help at all
The more you own, the more you fall
Prey to theft and the joy of vandals
Unless you have power

You should expect no respect as you fall into this plane
Feeling empty-souled is the meaning of this villainous reign


from The Remastered Masquerades, released January 1, 2004
