Climate Controller
(opening chant)
LORD ADDU, MASTER OF THE EARTH AND SKY
KAKODAMMU,
I CALL TO THEE, HEARKEN AND REMEMBER
BRING FORTH THE MIGHTY STORM THAT THIS WORLD SHALL TASTE YOUR FURY
LORD GIBIL, KEEPER OF THE FIRE AND FORGE
BAALAGNITARRA,
I CALL TO THEE, HEARKEN AND REMEMBER
MAKE THE SWORDS APPEAR IN THE SKY THAT ALL SHALL FEEL YOUR MIGHT
COMMANDER LUGGALDIMMERANKIA, MASTER OF ORDER
BANUTUKKU,
I CALL TO THEE, HEARKEN AND REMEMBER
DELIVER THE LEGIONS OF WIND DEMONS UNTO THIS WORLD THAT THEY MAY SEEK REVENGE
ZI DINGIR ANNA KANPAI
ZI DINGIR KIA KANPAI
I SUMMON THEE, CREATURES OF DARKNESS,
BY THE WORKS OF DARKNESS
CLIMATE CONTROLLER (the weather dominator)
(CHANT)
STORMS - manufacturated to destroy
FIRE - striking down from the sky
WIND - sweeping all rocks and trees aside
LAVA - emerging out of volcanoes
QUAKES - shake the earth to split
DEATH - from the clouds

ARMIES - marching in to their doom
SPIRITS - plundering their very souls
IONS - displaced from deep inside
WEAPONS - of the Gods

CHORUS:
FUSION OF THE ANCIENT WAYS
WITH MODERN TECH SUPPORT
BRINGING ATMOSPHERIC CHANGE
MASTER OF CLIMATE CONTROL
CHANTING TO THE ANGRY GODS
SEEDING CLOUDS WITH ICE
CAUSING SHIFTS IN ETHER PLANES
MASTER OF CLIMSTE CONTROL
Incantation finished as the armies start to charge
Suddenly the air begins to take on many shapes
Demons of the Legion swarm to take revenge
Sheets of blindness tossing every human fool aside
NO THING LEFT TO COUNT NO BODIES
BLOOD STAINED EARTH AND STONE LIE SCATTERED
CHORUS
Aftermath of horror sends a message to the globe
Danger to the Empire will result in hells untold
Ripping both the flesh and soul of anyone who tries
To take with force the Realm of the one who rules the skies

NO THING LEFT TO COUNT NO BODIES
BLOOD STAINED EARTH AND STONE LIE SCATTERED

VERSE 1

Keeping enemy troops in sight high above the fight
Armies destroyed watching with delight
Waiting patiently for an eye to subdue the sky
Counting the dead as they lie in wasteback to top
Tribal Vodoun
From deep inside the islands comes
a religious belief of magical fate
Necronomic tribes of the secret societies

Conducting ceremonies of the Vodoun faith
Revenge in store for enemies they hate
Soon to die awaiting to arise

Doomed to die by a malevolent curse
Carnival of chaos
Symbolic designs
carved in the earth to beckon LEGBA

[Rites of the Petro]

Reflections of rage and violence
Thundering drums echo unforgiving

Tribal chants grow louder
Dancers travel throughout the fire

Deity of fire OGU
Protects skin from the flames

Divine horsemen arrive
mounting the initiation of possession

Tearing glass / utter pandemonium
spirits indulge in burning torches

Spinnig dancers wake to reality

Vodoun - cannot be abstracted from the day to day life - of the Believer
All is whole - no separation between material and spiritual

The Bokor concocts the powder with the poisonous Datura
sprinkled upon the way of his victim
Body racked with terrible convulsions -
Mucus flowered from the nose and mouth shaking horrible

The edge of consciousness
criteria of poison
Lethargic coma
Indistinguishable from death

Comatose
Mentally alive / pronounced phisically dead
Nails driven into the coffin buried prematurely
Mind slips / disoriented / complete amnesia
Three days fermented incarnation of Evil

Baron SAMEDI
Guardian of the cemetery
Preparing the victim's soul
for Zombification

The fear initiates the victim
Psychologically vulnerable
Powder does not secure
Fate / its the mind
Baron unleashes cadaver
A soul trapped in a vessel
Blood spilt offering
Resurrection of zombie
Body without character
Aimlessly wandering through time
Servant to the Bokor
Le culte Des mortsback to top
Artic Crypt
Locked inside the ice below
Forgotten long ago
An alien object lies in wait
Lost beneath the snow

Seismic readings from the north
Lights above the poles
Curious humans drawn to the sight
Staking camp in the frozen night

CHORUS
Legends told of the evil within
Still, forewarned, the man came in
Seeking knowledge forbidden to man
Bringing death unto their land

Nocuous emissions alert the team
The source is soon revealed
A strange capsule scarred by time
Covered with a foreign script
Anxious to unlock its secrets
They crack open the seal
Unleaching the beast contained inside
The frozen arctic crypt

CHORUS 2
Legends told of the horror within
An ancient traveller of the stars
Left entombed until disturbed by man
Bringing death unto their landback to top
Aquatica
In the future year - 2023
Multinational warlords - build an aquatic colony
In the struggle for - total domination
Corporate powers - move in to take control
Stratagem inset
Manipulate the opposition
Wrath of devastation
to reduce life status
Martial law declared - surveilance over the colonies
Wage and mayhem - put to an end momentarily
Resolving confrontations - over territorial disputes
Battles break out - when negotiations crumble

Charred remains
washing to the shore
Escaped ones flee
to the surface

Vessels patrol
the ocean floor
Maintaining border dominion
through eradication of organisms

Sea and surface life
All is sacrificed
In quest for
reign of the deep

Whosoever
masters the seas
the last remaining frontier
gains the wealth locked in the brine

Precious minerals sought - by the surface
Hostile takeover of - the mining communities
Stormtroopers of technology
Careful to maintain nitrogen balance
Surgically removing
the enemy within
New leaders create - order out of chaos
A civilization - beneath the depths
Arson of power
conquering the oceans - Forming imbalance
Particles react
Expire life from - the precious seas
Thresholds mend
Sludge chain reaction - melts them down again
Depth charge
Destabilizing crust - and floor
Instructed probes
Sear the water from - the toxic veil
Weapons system
Tear the living - from their glory
Vandal masters
carving up - the biosystem
Submerged deep
Fatal dictatorship - of the seas
(spoken verse)
Surface dwellers tremble
from a new superpower
Superior intellect choosing
Base in the seas
Systematically eliminating
All who do not take heed
Stench of the aftermath
confirms Aquatica's victory

No longer shall there be
any separations between cultures
Remaining survivors cast into a
melting pot of conglomerate slavery
Absolute extinction of the once
praised heroic patriot
Lands of solid ground turned into
a biodegradable human wastleland
Pay homage to the ocean
where the kingdom now dwells
Aquatica, the submerged cityback to top
Subterranean Infiltrator
Release me from the sky
onto marsh domains
Expose the parachute to
Ease - the - vicious fall

Unseen by those below
Preying on their blindsights
shadows dance
About - the - jungle bog

Agent of espionage
Bearing north of the penisula
Invitatin to lay clear
Think - over - the strategy

Advance into forbidden marsh
scope all in the infrared
Create offensive
Resistance - from the - river banks

Entering the concealed passage
corridors extend beneath the surface
Manoeuvering through the
radar - beams - alarm reaction
Progression is slow under canister discharge
targets locked at the ends of the turns
Awaiting any enemy to
approach - infrared - identification
Once inside the target's range
seize the moment by squeezing the trigger
Single lead injection
intentions to wound - not to kill yet
Movement gives away strategic position
A regiment responds to the action
Trip wire set, suckered into the trap
They lay decapitated

Moving quickly
towards goal
Stealth the key
Clear path
to achieve lethal detonation

Flares of weapons
burst in synch
Give way

Chemical timers are now set

Once on the surface
reconnaissance picks him up
on the scope
Subterranean specialist
Looks down below
as the mountain lies in rubbleback to top
Alter Reality
YOUR UNIVERSE IS ONLY A PRODUCT OF YOUR MIND
No escape
once the threshold is crossed
Life and death
hold no meaning
Hidden doors
Interdimensional shifts
A dreamy state
of paralysis
Bands of mass
convert into energy
Forms of light
where no light exists
Time dilation
ad infinitum
Linear chaos
Internal distortion
Once inside
a dual state of being exists
Nonsequitur
Traveller of the continuum

Entropy
nonexistent in this place
Macrocosm
situated in parallel space
Constant flux
warping all that spins throughout
elements
sharing outer valence shells
Identity
blends into waves of shock
Haze of reason
Shades of deformity
Correlation
on an atomic level
Portal ajar
He stumbles into the unknown
Overwhelmed
by free association
Twisted region
shown to the journeyman
Overload
All is dissipated
Displayed
violently unto the senses

Gridzone
From the edge of outer regions
Far beyond our solar zone
Exists an altered sphere of power
Earth and metal machine of war

Planet's crust pierced by cables
Linking networks beneath the surface
Titanium plates shield the globe
Cohesion of the infrastructure

Friction of electromagnets
Simulates centrifugal force
Massive gyros beginning to turn
Enforcing acceleration

(PRE CHORUS)

Thrusters fire across the region
Spewing forth nucleic plasma
Worlds consumed - astral threat
Perpetual horror - termination

GRID ZONE

Brutally consructed / designed warfare
Perpetuating evil / awaits no more
Intruding on / peaceful isolation
Conformity crushed / death is near

Neutralize - chosen targets
Essential - suffering terrorized

GRID ZONE

Deceptive diversion / blinded satelites cannot trace
Mechanical malfunction
Deteriorating systems by the interface
Initial confrontation sieged by catastrophic annihilation
Inferior worlds destruction
Laser gouging / penetration

From the edge of outer regions
Far beyond our solar zone
Exists an altered sphere of power
Earth and metal machine of war

Light years travelled forming an elliptical path
Eons of galactic destruction
Creating a vacuum crushing the globe
Devouring the energy dispersed
Seeker of impending doom
Completing an eternal cycle
Worlds consumed - astral threat
Perpetual horror - termination
