Track Name: Thrive & Decay
Their greed's contagious their game is ageless
Human shields protect the souls that they stole
Their institutions will always lead you lost
Enslave and grave you at any cost
Enormous billfolds and bigger blindfolds
Will keep you standing in line to be sold
They feed false faith just to cook your goose
Showing you the ropes while they hang the noose

Taught to survive in a culture of vultures
Fall to your knees thats the way to succeed
Thrive (Thrive)— and decay
Rot in normality revel in morality
Learn their lies then live to die
Thrive (Thrive) — and decay

Chains grow stronger the path stretches longer
A never ending mind fucking marathon
Brainwashed to perpetuate and procreate
And embrace disgrace of the human race
You're the fool that thrives inside their cage
Happily herded into the wars they wage
You're the hero decaying hidden dishonored
Hoping for your life to end self slaughtered

Taught to survive in a culture of vultures
Fall to your knees thats the way to succeed
Thrive (Thrive)— and decay
Rot in normality revel in morality
Learn their lies then live to die
Thrive (Thrive) — and decay

Blissfully cower in your decaying hour
Now reach out to hold your funeral flowers
Obeyed their way to get a piece of the crust
Into earthen arms you are thrust
You're buried or burned never to return
Casket cradled or ashed in urn
Within soil now you shall spoil
Thrive in the corpse kingdom forever loyal

Thrive — and decay
Track Name: Vulture Sepulcher
Drag my corpse to the highest peak
Expose rotten flesh so I may reek
Summoned by stench, vultures breathe my breath
Airborne undertakers bring life to death

Devoured mortality
I live inside the beasts
My main course corpse
Is their funerary feast

Possessed by my flesh controlled by my soul
Evil avian army implements my goal
Abduct mankind for a sky burial slaughter
Devour every father, mother, son and daughter
Preclude the pollution known as people
Banish them to the highest steeple
Entomb them in the silent towers
Summon the vultures to devour

Vulture Sepulcher (x4)

Vulture, Vulture (x4)

Vulture Sepulcher (x4)

Now in pits of putridity
Starving for their stupidity
In a cave size coffin crypt
They enjoy their human corpse picnic
