Track Name: An Equinox of Fathomless Disheartenment
Ecliptic sects are obtained by fluxions
Phenomenon of the Holy Qabalah will
Intervene with the serpent of Daath
The inmost godhead of Phallus
Deems the temperament of Kan and Yi King
Ancient attitudes of equipoise
Drastic seasons of ceremonial permutations
There is not a creation in the firmament
The direction to conduct an angels choir
I'm still pleeding to the heinous-eyed cherubim
To see this bemired vesture of waste
You are the force of Lotus
And the Path of live
The venus in my cancer
And consolidation of the dyad
You are the strict joy of ectasy
And the power of yellowish light
Luster the garden of Kundry and cover Laetitia
Track Name: The Thrice is Greatest to Ninnigal
The Thrice Is Greatest To Ninnigal

The detestable xul
Is chained to Ninnigal
Acknowledge the prayers
Subsequent to earth
The seventh gate of Nana-
'Outcry thy sin!',
While the sixth portal of Lord Mastema opens wide.
Nana: God of the Moon: I convoke to thee.
Our terra firma regrets burning the scriptures
An abyss will seek menace towards the reign once again.
Ostentation of your heart is
A heart filled with lunar parallaxes
If you look,
The elders anticipate the arrival
...Of the black and amoral innocents
If you look,
The Celestial Pantheon will burn
...Burns the prediction of persecution
