Track Name: Ira (wrath)
Through the dark of night a serpent stalking prey
Passing through the mist focusing my rage
Fury boiling from within becomes unhinged
It festers to the surface spewing forth revenge

Violence…is what I seek
Vigilance…no stopping me
Adrenaline…is how I feed
Imminent…hatred released

Moving closer now with calculated spite
Placing blame, taking aim I’ve got you In my sights
You will not get away you have nowhere to run
A splash of red the flash of lead my vengeance shall be done

Violence…is what I seek
Vigilance…no stopping me
Adrenaline…is how I feed
Imminent…fade to red

In the darkness anger fed
As the seeds of hatred spread
Draining all morality
Replaced with brutality

The act committed and the punishment is due
The end complete, wrath inflicted pure and true
Enter now the river Styx its waters stained and dank
Dismembered and made whole again to rot within its banks

Violence…is what I seek
Vigilance…no stopping me
Adrenaline…is how I feed
Imminent…fade to red

In the darkness anger fed
As the seeds of hatred spread
Draining all morality
Replaced with brutality
Now the seam is torn to shreds
Rationality is dead
Malice cured by victims bled
Left an empty hole instead
Track Name: Vanagloria (vanity)
Take a good hard look and tell me what you see
View my perfection jealously
In the mirror my reflection says it all
Lovingly sculpted not a flaw…you’re in awe.

You know I’ll never see, anything but me
All I will ever be, is hollow

All who look on me will never be the same
Your ugliness will be your shame
The body is a temple kneel before mine
Behold my splendor I’m divine….by design!

A hollow shell of vanity is what you are
Your beauty has become your scar
Emptiness and self-absorbed is all you feel
And you’ll be broken on the wheel…under heel….on the wheel.
Track Name: Avarice (greed)
What is given I will take it’s all within my reach
Consume all and covet thee with treason never breached
Never shall you want from thee all that I cling too
Can’t you see it’s all for thee, never some for two

Serving thy self, earthly desires

Now walk with me, in Purgatory
Penitents weeping
Bound to your greed you shall bleed

Spinning forth a web of lies manipulate the truth
Undermine to drink the wine and feed from underneath
All I want is all you have what’s mine is never yours
With open hands I grasp for all, all there is and more

Serving thy self, earthly desires

Now walk with me, in Purgatory
Penitents weeping
Bound to your greed you shall bleed

Mundus est non satis. Dolo, ego omnia tibi

Hoard the wealth and bleed them dry, taking all you can
Rampant avaratia, rapacity of man
Betrayal of excessiveness, now you shall be bound
See the earth for what it’s worth, with eyes unto the ground

Serving thy self, earthly desires

Now walk with me, in Purgatory
Penitents weeping
Bound to your greed you shall bleed
Track Name: Tristitia/Acedia (dispair/sloth)
Break the crust from my heavy eyes
Heavy is the burden, so I don’t try
Restless and aware but I don’t care
Leave it all right there in disrepair

And it seems I don’t know if I
Care enough to save my soul before I die
And it always stays the same
Venture nothing, nothing gained
When my back’s against the wall
It don’t bother me at all

Shouting my commands with idle hands
Touting all my plans, hear my demands
My mind full of dreams and grand schemes
Finding all I need in my apathy

And it seems I don’t know if I
Care enough to save my soul before I die
And it always stays the same
Venture nothing, nothing gained
When my back’s against the wall
It don’t bother me at all

When it all goes to hell with the strike of a death knell
And all my years are spent, opportunity came and went
I never would help myself, left that to someone else
No legacy to persist, it’s like I didn’t exist

Gasping in the sludge of blackened mud
Muffled are you pleas from up above
Dwelling on the bottom for eternity
Get back what you’ve given, absolutely nothing
Track Name: Luxuria (lust)
Speak … All lips are sealed, looking to find what I
Seek … Wanting and waiting with temptation guiding I’m
Weak … Cannot control, emotion taking its
Toll … Burning within, to have you again and its

Gnawing, Clawing
My willpower fails
Tearing asunder its pulling me under, your mine

Need …Carnal desire, flesh is on fire, I
Feed … On all the pleasures, lying within and I
Bleed … To taste your skin, seeping from every
Pore … Aching for more, feel me inside
Trust is derailed, plot is unveiled to all

In your mind I plant the seed
Reaping what I sow
When the seed has taken root
Body, mind and soul … growing
Feed it with my wickedness
Nourish with desire
Drain the nectar from its fruit
And bathe me its fire … glowing
Self immolation its bringing me down to my knees

Lust … Forsaking others, even your God
Above … Questions are versed with answers rehearsed and you
Shove … Away the truth, with nail and tooth you
Deny … coerce and deceive, spiraling lower your

Twisting, Turning
Through the winds of Hell
Smothered in fire, watching the flames getting high
Track Name: Superbia (pride)
Look at my accomplishments, all I have achieved
Anything you’ve ever done will never equal thee
Looking down at little people I soar high above
Always one step higher I will keep them under thumb

Superior…born to succeed
Inferior…all are to me
Arrogance…hubris unleashed
Absence…of all humility

Never to be second best
Better than all of the rest
Delusions of grandeur persist, the Illusion of being important
Superbia!
Superbia!

Execution of my skill with cunning mastery
All the competition is demeaned so viciously
I’ll break their spirit to raise myself higher
Trample them under foot to feed my own desire

Superior…born to succeed
Inferior…all are to me
Arrogance…hubris unleashed
Absence…of all humility

Never to be second best
Better than all of the rest
Delusions of grandeur persist, the Illusion of being important
Superbia!
Superbia!
Track Name: Gula (gluttony)
Never do I get my fill, must consume until I’m ill
And then with my plate restored, lick it clean and ask for more
Now the taste is on my lips
No escape I’m in the grips of ecstasy and slavery

Your feeding exceedingly
Stuff your mouth and chew
For Cerberus is bleeding thee
His red eyes stare through…staring right through you

Selfishly I take from you, coveting thy neighbors food
Lavishly I dine again, cleanse the palate with my sin
Fill my gullet to the brim
Choking on the excess I devour anything I can

It’s putrid and wreaking
Faith cant wash you clean
Your filthy and sinking
Foul rain covering….covers everything

The hunger never fades, and all your hope betrayed
To watch you eat away the only chance you ever had of

Life, spiraling out of control
Death, closer with every swallow
Cost, weight of your soul is the price
Lost, hunger within is the vice

Step inside, have a seat, welcome to the feast
Prepared just for you, courtesy of the beast
I’ve been watching you, savor every taste
I see the weakness, see when your faith is misplaced
And here you stay with me, in the putrid rain
Covered in the filth and purified by the flames
