A still life hangs from the gallows and calls sweetly
Displaying it's dead world, this window into nothing
Selling to human shit a doorway to serfdom
Your life is a lie, a monument of prostration

Fuck your world

So summon the "arrogance" to kneel before none
Forever entwined with the fires of war
No heaven, no jesus, no god amongst men
Raze that image of filth once and for all

Fuck your god

And the gallows enshrined by a halo of fire
A scorching eye against a background of hatred
Dead, barren, bleak desolation
Nurturing that still life, that view into nothing

... And chaos consumes
Cannibal womb plunging all into darkness again

Every shard of the portrait a corpse in the darkness
Into a whirlpool of flame in the act of devouring
And calling
For the death of you all
