My wasted life’s foul memory immortalized by vainglory
Forever etched in cuneiform
Tombs beneath tombs hold my remains forevermore

Twisting history with my story
Nothingness from whence I came
Bastard child without a name
My casket fortified by sorcery

Dead and gone, I have passed
Unmake my image
Setting the past in flames, recanting psychic pain
Bitterest prayers unheard by the gods
Silence will follow me
Deign not to my hypocrisy, I am buried in heart and soul

Death must have meaning; a false ideal
Obfuscation of the truth suturing flesh wounds of the damned who shall never speak of me

Erase my memetic legacy
Deformed, unborn, forlorn, bonestorm
Mythic meaning lost in a sea of regret
Defy the sky torn to carnage: toxic orthodoxy

No memoriam for my wasted life’s end at long last
No mortal dares recount my tale
Smashed tombstones; a cruel epitaph for the slain
Of whom nothing will remain

Extinguish the final flames of belief

Ease your sorrow; nothing lost, nothing mourned
Feast and famine; ash and dust take my form
Forgotten lord of lies, you’ve fallen
Now bleed and never rest in peace
