Monk of Khaos

lyrics

Raise my dagger
Above the altar
Prepare the rituals of the sacred void
Chant the rites
Bound to Khaos
As I bestow myself upon the progenitor

The fallacies of deities
Controlling me
I never trusted any of you
I confront what lies beyond
The forged gods
The essence of exinstance
This life is just a paradox
Against all odds
Coincidental creation
The chemistry is clear to me
As far as I believe
The only god I see is me

Candles lit
To read the verses
They echo through the dark halls
On the ground
Where the dust dwells
This is my purpose now, I descent from soil

Down I go
To escape the dreams of man
Down below
Where the darkness hides me from you

You try to see the world in symmetry
Believe in order as the law
Things left unexplained are miracles
Interventions of divinity

This world's been torn apart by hate and greed
Yet you fail to reason why
you forgot that you're a particle
In this universal turbulence

Let me ponder
Dissociate
I chose the hermit life
To submit to my maker
Isolated
In my abode
I pray for none but my own
Tormented soul

This life is just a paradox
Against all odds
Coincidental creation
The chemistry is clear to me
As far as I believe
The only god I see is me

Created
In the abyss
Where khaos solely dwells
The birth of creation
