Track Name: Burnt Church - Empire of Obedience
They have built an empire
on your obedience
to this pack of lies
prejudices instilled from birth
yet, still you go on believing
because its all you know
Track Name: Burnt Church - Centuries of Torture
centuries of torture
to what fucking end
another page of history
written in blood and suffering
it's man's nature
to inflict misery
for profit or doctrine
it's all subjugation
Track Name: Burnt Church - Death to Death Core
sick of all your played out bull shit
gurgled vocals sexist lyrics
boring riffs and no song structure
your photoshopped artwork really sucks
death to deathcore
Track Name: Burnt Church - Sold Out
after 25 years of faithful fucking service
they hand you a pink slip
and escort you to the door
as a matter of fact they've found a new clone
and he's just like you
same blank expression
same grey suit
sold out
after 25 year you wont go quietly into the night
storm into that place, and shoot those fuckers down
Track Name: Burnt Church - At the Mountains of Madness
in the darkness of the north
is an evil that always waits
guarded by the blind old ones
lie the star spawn of cthulhu
deep in their icy lair they slumber
awaiting the time when they will rise
stars align to to signal the coming
of the star spawn of cthulhu
Track Name: Burnt Church - Violated
among lecture halls and bars
is where you stalk your prey
education and affluence
cover the darkness within
money covers your tracks
Track Name: Burnt Church - Forgive/Forget
i'll never forgive
i'll never forget
Track Name: Burnt Church - Teenage Fatass Anthem
girls don't have a monopoly on negative body image
boys are just as susceptible to insecurity
all the names i was called
i remember everyone
time has passed
the weight, almost gone
i'm the same person you've always failed to see
you'll never get me down, you'll never get to me
all the names i was called
i remember everyone
time has passed
the weight, almost gone
Track Name: Burnt Church - Paradise Lost
dream of a world free from religion
free from spiritual oppression
paradise lost
dream of a world free of your hatred
free from your dogma
paradise lost
Track Name: Burnt Church - Disposable Lifestyle
consume your doom
spend your money, on useless shit you don't need
your desires are dictated commercials onTV
disposable lifestyle
Track Name: Burnt Church - Human, All too Human
human all too human
poison mixers and deniers of life
are they whom tend the pulpits
and inoculate the flock
with abraham's memetic plague
we shall over come
hammering the nails
god is dead
we are his murderers
Track Name: Burnt Black - Embracing the Void
in darkness we will find peace
the pious shall find no reward
no virgins or pearly gates to greet them
only darkness remains
the sweetness of decay
it is not your enemy
like all things in this life
we too must come to lie
take my hand
into the dark i will lead you
