Description

WASTE CULT

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

IN THIS EXISTENCE
WE CONSTRUCT THE END
AS LIFE TANGLES IN THE BITTEREST TALE
OUR GLUTTONY PROSPERS

OUR CRAFTED PERFECTION
I’M LOST IN DECEPTION
MY ESSENCE TO SUSTAIN
IS RUNNING DOWN THE DRAIN

A PLASTIC EXISTENCE
SHALLOW AND UNREAL
IN THE EPOCH OF A DYING BREED
CONTAMINATING EVERYTHING

A CANCER SO VICIOUS
FEASTING ON THE EARTH
OUR ESSENCE TO SUSTAIN
IS RUNNING DOWN THE DRAIN

AGAIN THE FEELING HOVERS
ABOVE MY HEAD

AS IT DECAYS
AS WE BETRAY
UNTIL IT ALL FADES AWAY
TO HOLD THIS IN MIND
OUR CONQUERING LIVES
HAVE STRAYED SO FAR
TO BREAK APART

HORIZONS

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

BLINDFOLDED WE ARE
OBLIVIOUS CREATURES
DANCING IN THE DARK
IN THE DARK
NARROW HORIZONS
WITH ALL CLEAR SKIES
NOT SENSING DEFEAT
THROUGH THE IMAGE
IT BLEEDS

AS WE HOLD ON
WAITING FOR THE DAY
WAITING IS HERE TO STAY
AND WE HOLD ON
WAITING PATIENTLY
THE WAITING IS ALL IN VAIN

IT IS ALL IN VAIN

REFLECTION

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

THIS WRONGLY SCULPTED MIND
SOAKED IN ARROGANCE AND PRIDE
THIS PERVERTED PERCEPTION
IN THIS IDOLATRY IT THRIVES
AND IT SHINES SO BRIGHT
THESE MESMERIZING LIES
THE CORRUPTING OF THE MIND
THESE DECEITFUL THRONES
PENETRATE INTO THE BONE
NOW FEEL YOUR SOUL
BECOMING COLD

COLD

HUMAN, YOU FOOL
HERE GROWS NOTHING NEW
UNDER OUR SKIES
YOUR ARROGANCE AND PRIDE
FOREVER SHINES
AND IT SHINES SO BRIGHT

GROWTH

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

IMMERSED IN HIS FOOLISHNESS
A BLATANT PURSUIT OF WEALTH
HE GRABS HOLD OF THE CHAIN
DICTATING AN EVERGROWING STRAIN

HE WON’T LIBERATE
FROM THIS MADNESS
FOR HE IS CHAINED
TO HIS OWN CONCEIT

A SELF ABSORBED HUMAN
NOW CONQUERS THE EARTH
SELF ADMIRING BREED
HIS ACE OF DEVASTATING DEEDS

ON FOUNDATIONS SO FRAGILE
PLACING HIS SEED
ON IDEALS OF EXTERMINATION
SUBLIMED IN HIS GREED

THE CONCEITS OF MAN
AND THE FATAL DEMANDS
THE CONCEITS OF MAN
HAVE SOWN OBLITERATION
UNDERSTAND

WE WON’T LIBERATE

FOR DECAY

Lyrics: Edvin Niclasen & Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Edvin Niclasen & Eyðun Hvannastein

COERCED CONSUMING FEVER
COLLECTING STREAMS OF LIFE
OUR SHARED COMPULSION FOR DECAY
IN EVERY CORNER A DREAM
ERODED IN OUR EYES
THIS SCAR, OUR EMBLEM OF SUCCESS

RISEN WITHIN OUR SOULS
COLD WALLS OF MACHINES
FAINT, AS THE DREAMS UNFOLD
OUR SENSE OF DEFEAT

ALL CRUMBLES DOWN AGAIN
ALL CRUMBLES DOWN

REVOLVING WORDS DICTATE
NO FEAR OF CONSEQUENCE
FOR WE ARE EARTHED IN THE WAKE

NIHIL

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

I’VE SEARCHED, FOR SOME TIME
TRIED TO MAKE SENSE OF THIS
OUR PURPOSE IN THIS WHILE
SUFFOCATE THESE IDEALS
THAT HAVE BLINDED MY SIGHT

I’VE BREACHED BEYOND A WALL
ON HIGH GROUND MADE MY STAND
FROM THESE SHALLOW WORDS
PRAISING NOTHINGNESS
DEGRADING OUR WORTH

THE GRAVITY ON DISPLAY
IS DWELLING DEEP IN MY PAIN
REVELATION TAKING HOLD OF ME
FORCED TO BLEED
THROUGH ALL I’VE DECEIVED

FOR ALL I HAVE FOUND
A GRAIN OF SAND

IN THIS DECREATION

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

WE BUILD OUR WALLS IN THIS
DECREATION
AND LAY OUR VALUE ON DECAY
A HUNGER HAS NOW GROWN STRONGER
SURROUNDING THE LIFE WE’VE BETRAYED
EACH DAY IN OUR IGNORANCE
WE CRAVE FOR THE NIGHT
OUR PURPOSE CALLS FAINT
AS WE BATHE IN OUR OWN PRAISE

THE MONUMENTS WE RAISE
UPON DEATH AND DEPLETION
REFLECTIONS OF OUR FAITH
IN THE CONTORTED DREAMS WE CREATE

IGNITING THE FIRES OF OUR DESOLATION
AS CONCRETED EYES STARE
IN AWE, IN ADORATION
PERCEPTIONS DRENCHED IN DESPAIR
FOR EACH  DAY IN OUR IGNORANCE
UNFURLING OUR VOID
AS BLINDNESS CROWNS OUR EYES
WE PERSEVERE TO EXPLOIT

MALICE

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

HERE COMES OUR DEMISE
ANNIHILATION IN SIGHT
IN WASTE AND DESTRUCTION
THE BARREN EARTH LIES

IGNITE AND CONSUME
SPREAD OUT AND REDUCE
LIFE NUMBED BY THE FUMES
HERE THEY FUEL THE FLAMES
AND WIDEN THE STAIN
WHERE NOTHING WILL REMAIN

CONSUMING FLAMES
ONLY ASHES WILL REMAIN
GAZE UPON THE GREED
OF THIS MALICE WE’VE CONCEIVED

OF THIS MALICE WE’VE CONCEIVED

FROM THEIR EYES GROWS A SCOPE
TO A FALSIFIED HOPE
A FALSIFIED HOPE

OF THIS MALICE WE’VE CONCEIVED

CONCEIVED
CONCEIVED
CONCEIVED
CONCEIT

IT IS EVERMORE CLEAR
MORE SOLID THAN STONE
SHARPER THAN A SPEAR
FROM THEIR EYES GROWS A SCOPE
TO A FALSIFIED HOPE
A FALSIFIED HOPE

THE BLACK CLOUD

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

IT TAKES HOLD OF DAY
CONFINES REALITY
RESONATING IN THE AIR
THE VOICES OF DESPAIR

FEAST ON THESE EYES
INFECT THE MIND
WITH SHALLOW LIES

A BREEDING CLOUD
DARK AS NIGHT
SEIZING OUR LIVES

OUR FEEBLED MINDS
HAVE RAZED OUR EYES

THIS BLACK CLOUD
IT FILLS THE AIR
SMOTHERS EACH AND ALL
DISTORTED, LOUD
REEKS DESPAIR
SMOTHERS EACH AND ALL
OF US

BEFORE WE GREET THE NIGHT
ELATION WRECKS OUR MIGHT
CONTAGIOUS PETTINESS
SHEER MOMENTS OF DELIGHT
IT MATTERS MOST RIGHT NOW
IT IS CLEARLY  WITHIN SIGHT
SERVED TO HIS INDULGENCE
ALL ELSE BLURRED AND NOW DENIED

OUR FEEBLED MINDS
ERASING EYESIGHT
OUR FEEBLED MINDS
HAVE RAZED OUR EYES

THE SETTING SUN

Lyrics: Eyðun Hvannastein
Music: Eyðun Hvannastein

BEHOLD THE SETTING SUN
COLD HEAVY RHYTHMS  OF US
AS WE WALK IN THE BLISS
EMBRACING DEATH WITH A KISS
WITH A KISS

BEHOLDING THE SETTING SUN
COLD HEAVY BURDENS OF US
IN THIS TRAIL THE NEVERHEALING SCAR
IN THIS PATH THE UNRELENTING THIRST

THE SETTING SUN
BITTERNESS, COLD

FOLLY
