Descend – The Rancorous Paradigm lyrics

Enter the era of vain
Serenity lost, the vicious will reign
Embracement of your spiteful egos, the last one of your kind
Accolades to conceit, obfuscation of the mind

Crowning the glorious creation
Evolved into a beast of devastation
Will is lost to a greater desire, the powers within reach
Draining hope of the absent-minded as altruism depletes

Lead: Lindström

Follow now the will of affinity jaded
Rotten to the core, the tolerance faded
Bred from the spawn of a species forlorn
Shards of mankind shattered and torn

Rejected and cast down from the source of our beliefs
The elder writings and the creatures of deceit
Despise all meaning of their pitiful ways
Forgotten and silent in their unmarked graves

Sacrilegious human debris
An offering to the gods of greed
Lying in wait for the ancients to rise
Breathing death and everlasting demise

As you wither away into the blackened shrines
The ones at power a nocturnal divine
A celebration to our greatest deed
Let the feeble rot
Now kill to feed

Fires burn at the heart of your delusion
Failed to see the staring eyes of guilt
Your wicked mind has now reached the conclusion
As the searing void runs you through

Final dying words of a cosmos set aflame
Long forgotten keys to avoid the ardent pain
Bringing forth the full reach of your poison need
Forfeit attempt to halt Armageddon

Once risen as the breed in triumph
A paradigm of rancor, self-inflicted failure
No new beginning
No meaning will be seen
The fall of all marks closure to the cycle
