1000 Thoughts Of Violence

by Kekal

dripping blood as violent rages on, engulfing our soils - death is here, ringing fatality of civilization - massacre, the murders at random, in attempted genocide - thousand years of social paralysis, fathomless irony - humankind in conflicting nature, the beauty and the beast - death to share, bringing fatality to civilization - ideologies and social systems based on human theories - so basicaly we're all into products of our corrupted brains! - deep in the void of our hollow hearts - is there any space left for souls to rest? - deep in the void of our wounded minds - is there any chance left for souls to live? - "no time to clean your bloody hands, the stains are there in your own blood!" - many years we've tried to look ahead and find some solutions - but once again they fail miserably, yet life is still going on - is there any space left for souls to rest?
Vox Diaboli 04:30
within our senseless will, driving motives - no absolution for one's desires - changes are minor, yet impact is unaccountable - no standard for achieving satisfaction - rising from the depths of needs - voices that will take control - the dances of demons inside the brain - post-modern struggle within a self - when the basics are covered, alternatives taken - creatively made options, a new world chaos - many to choose from, but more yet to offer - the world is not enough as sky is our limit - derived from disturbances - arrival of morbid signals - when insanity approaches - the weak is the one who denies his weakness - no need to evaluate sin and its values - when it came to degenerate our existence - accepting the power to wash-over self - transformation is imminent - rising from the hollow core - someone who must take control - invite the flame to purge and burn - ruling the battle within a self
In Continuum 05:44
this is where they rose and fell - things will keep to follow the same patterns - once ill-defined, now much-accepted - no such real sense of anomaly - winds have blown away every inch-block of debris - from the rubbles of our tragic yesterdays - scenes will always in changing positions - But i doubt if they are progressing and transforming - the way we manage our lives on earth is - the way we destroy our desirable future - we have tried, at least we've tried - to heal ourselves and learn from the past - unexpected, the gazing x factors - start to crush from the inside - time has washed away all these traumatic moments the earth once had - but will our children be free from all the wars? - like thick black dots in continuum - we will never erase or take them off the line - so many nails have pierced down our wooden existence - leaving all these black holes until it comes to an end
we're in the beginning of the end of time - in the middle of the countdown - it's impossible to turn around - but who's aware of it? - lost in the fields of thick deceptions - up all nights and all days, creating more goals based on worldly views - here it is, anywhere we look around we'll see - proove of mankind's grand achievements - backed by technological sophistication - but should we proud of it? - lost in the fields of thick deceptions - up all nights and all days, creating more goals based on worldly views, in worldly ways - what's in our minds? - with all these philosophical kinds of-modern frames of thoughts - a new-found old insanity - as we lost in the fields of thick deceptions - up all nights and all days, creating more goals based on worldly views, in worldly ways
understanding the patterns of social life - to bring forth contradictory goals - there is no double-standard in any stance - to fight for something worth to fight for - a clash of interests - reconciliation is nonsense - when law has been paralized - regulations out of order - who wants to bring a fresh air to this sick violent world? - smell of death as we breathe - can we make a stand? - mass confusion in the wake of grand ignorance - political maneuvers, dancing on a vicious circle - "divide et impera", a plot of reducing power of pawns - we, people are just too uneducated to be aware - a clash of interests - victims of a new democratic atmosphere - the ones with necrophilic minds shall rise - and none can stop them as everyone's free - who dares to bring a fresh air to this sick violent world? - smell of death as we breathe - can we make a stand? - an opera of madness we found each day - waging destruction, fascination on deaths - with such weapons and C4's ready to kill - paranoid grandiosity or necrophilic fantasy? - time for confirmation - to speak louder than before - a life in a violent society - we shall stand...
Default 05:34
a vanity rises in the middle of our motion - with ever-changing colours of illusive existential components - unfictitious presence, scars and withdrawal, leaving us to wonder... - i want to see, but my eyes are blind - should i seek for a guidance of my life? - beyond a flock of confusion - i ask for a return to original form - without any agreement or concensus - determination has already been chosen - free us from a process of decadence - free us from a procession to our graves - back to the state where things just started - back to the place where i belong - i want to see, but my eyes are blind - should i seek for a guidance of my life?
[I. 404 - The Broken] 404 - file not found - 404 - broken Link - 404 - virtual void - 404 - and so it stands - a universal code - of all unfound files - deep within the world - of hypertexts - a message presents in the absence of URL - unable to access and to download - the web as a holistic approach - for us to collect all information - a dream of more accessible world - in this cybernetic ivory tower - powerless, as it appears at our monitors - the world of imperfectness, the world of ours [II. 911 - The Black] 3 digits on a dialing code - to access departments of rescue - numbers known for help-assistance - related with a social security - lines of governmental services - working in a complete duty - units seemed to be flawless - with funds that appropriately flow - still, the world who never sleeps - it will never give up its darkside - even the rescue code can be taken - as a symbol to create one big tragedy - when the very eyes of the world - moved by a singular defining moment - those numbers became a point for another meaning - at time when people both cry, or rejoice, in the awakening of war! [III. 70x7 - To Forgive is To Suffer] how often shall we forgive - up to 3 times? up to 7 times? - no, it is up to 70x7 - we hear a sound of weakness in our minds - the rhythm of the twilight, and rhythm of the night - to give the guilty ones their second lives - and death was only price, a suffering and pain - for us, the unforgiven who get redeemed for free - so can't we give our "enemies" the unconditional state of forgiveness? - to forgive is to be hurt - to forgive is to suffer
