Track Name: Just a Legend
We used to think that the Kraken was just a legend, the dark and twisted Scandanavian sea mist...
Track Name: Decomposition of Factors
Decomposition of factors
Multiply first and last after
Product of sum is the centre
Eater of voids, the planet’s tormenter
Ripping the cosmos to shreds
Military activated, release the warheads
Reciprocal fractions
Actualize opposite reactions

Look up to the sky, see tendrils stretched far
Phosphorescent arms extinguishing...the stars
Civilized diplomacy is rendered obsolete
Pandemic of mass panic is spreading through...the streets
Seeing their extinction palpable above
The masses turn to all that they had been deprived of
But the kraken acts regardless of the actions on this dot
Its infinite intelligence has not a second thought

Decomposition of factors
Multiply first and last after
Product of sum is the centre
Eater of voids, the planet’s tormenter
Ripping the cosmos to shreds
Military activated, release the warheads
Reciprocal fractions
Actualize opposite reactions
Track Name: The Old Ones Are Dead
The great old ones are dead, devoured by the origin of all. A breath exhaled, tendrils out, the empty light grasping, illuminating, suffocates all preceding it, creating an instant of perceived unity.
Track Name: The Destroyer Comes
Identical system
Infinite solution
Overlapping lines rise and run
Ordered operations
Balance the equations
A million planets fit into the sun

The kraken has arisen
Unfurling from its prison
The black hole hidden well from the light
Recompense upon us
A sacrificial disgust
Our disbelief won’t save us from the rite

Destroyer comes
The destroyer comes
The destroyer comes
And we succumb
Destroyer comes
The destroyer comes
The destroyer comes
And we succumb

Intercept equation
Points across the nation
Military fighting to survive
General form graphing
Coordinates are crashing
The armoured tanks are put in overdrive

Tentacles unfurling
Gravitation blurring
As stars are smashed together right and left
Screaming total agony
Waste far as the eye can see
Universe is stretched and then compressed

The kraken has arisen
Unfurling from its prison
The black hole hidden well from the light
Recompense upon us
A sacrificial disgust
Our disbelief won’t save us from the rite
Track Name: The Void Calls
Behind the dark, the void calls all within itself, a black hole, a vacuum of negative space, the purgatory of the universe. Cephalopod, eater of the void, destroyer of the worlds, father of the old ones, ender of four billion suns...
Track Name: Cephalopod
Cephalopod, Eater of the void
Cephalopod, Destroyer of the worlds
Black holes engulf; the universe is torn

Kraken (sea mist) a cosmic whirlpool
Cryptid, revealed, as fates’ threads unspool
Centre, unknown, the universe heart
Unfurled, spreading, pervasive and dark

Red stars - explode! Technetium spreads
Open, eyelids! And see up ahead, two
Million years pass, the half-life is met, but
Red stars carry these isotopes yet

Cephalopod, Eater of the void
Cephalopod, Destroyer of the worlds
Cephalopod, Eater of the void
Cephalopod, Destroyer of the worlds

Sixty thousand repetitions make
One truth, old ones, the atmospheres break
Empty, grasping, and gasping for air
Perceive the void but still unaware

Ender of the four hundred billion
Suns rise, time ends, omnipotent one
Swan song, time-space, continuum fail
Matter ceasing, the coffin’s last nail

Cephalopod, Eater of the void
Cephalopod, Destroyer of the worlds
Black holes engulf; the universe is torn
Track Name: The Timeless Eye
A timeless eye perceives, unfeeling, omniscient and sociopathic, emanating a curiously detached cruelty as undulating tentacles weave in a ponderous ballet, transcending light and dark; leaving a blue phosphorence in its wake as it traverses the cosmic ocean...
Track Name: Discrepancy
We must resolve the discrepancy
Between quantum mechanics and general relativity
We must resolve the discrepancy
Between quantum mechanics and general relativity

Planets are colliding
Large-scale laws apply
Orbit in ellipsis
With Einstein they comply

But scaling is subjective
Compared to giant squid
The planets are miniscule
Diminish off the grid

We must resolve the discrepancy
Between quantum mechanics and general relativity
We must resolve the discrepancy
Between quantum mechanics and general relativity

Quantum state mechanics ap-
ply to both extremes
The dictates of the old law
Affect the in-between

Leaps through cosmic systems
Allow for the unknown, elec-
Trons can influence
Existence - overthrown
Track Name: Their Master's Call
The galaxies unfurl as the nautiluses delicately extricate themselves from their shells. From their funnels come toxic stardust. The creatures undulate in hypnotic uniformity, red, black, red, black: blood and night in constant contrast. They have heard their master's call.
Track Name: Look Up
Eater of the stars
With your mantle gleaming
Master of the void
While the suns are dreaming

Cruel is the unknown
Watch the cosmos bleeding
Sucked inside the dark
While all life is screaming

Look up in the night
Blood freeze in your veins
No-one sees our plight
All that's left is pain

Asteroids will fall
For their paths are blocked as
Tentacles entwine
This pale blue dot

Day turns into dark
As our sun turns ashen
Its flames illuminate
From within the kraken

Look up in the night
Blood freeze in your veins
No-one sees our plight
All that's left is pain
Track Name: Death of the Great Whale
The great whale traveled from Mars to Sirius; there, he was slaughtered by the cephalopod, first flayed alive by its razor-sharp hooked tentacles, then ripped to shreds and flung in pieces across the galaxy.
Track Name: This Is the End
Hear the war drums
Break the silence
As the everstorm increases in violence

Hear the wail of
Crisis warning
There is no dawn after this darkness forming

Hear the thunder
Of the earthquakes
Asteroid belt beating planet ‘til we break

Hear the rushing
Of the tide as
Two thousand foot waves are worse than suicide

See the lightning
In the night sky
Effervescent colours, the backlight as we die

See a tendril
Like a bad trip
Dragging down the planet like a kraken would a ship

See its glowing
Above the battle
Remnants of the stars inside illuminate its mantle

See it coming
This is the Old One
A bloody sacrifice is all that we’ve become

This is the end
Of life as we know it
This is the start
Of our demise
This is the end
Of life as we know it
This is the start
Of our demise

Hear the war drums
Break the silence
As the everstorm increases in violence

Hear the wail of
Crisis warning
There is no dawn after this darkness forming

Hear the thunder
Of the earthquakes
Asteroid belt beating planet ‘til we break

Hear the rushing
Of the tide as
Two thousand foot waves are worse than suicide

See the lightning
In the night sky
Effervescent colours, the backlight as we die

See a tendril
Like a bad trip
Dragging down the planet like a kraken would a ship

See its glowing
Above the battle
Remnants of the stars inside illuminate its mantle

See it coming
This is the Old One
A bloody sacrifice is all that we’ve become

This is the end
Of life as we know it
This is the start
Of our demise
This is the end
Of life as we know it
This is the start
Of our demise
Track Name: Madness Descends
A conflict of the highest order of magnitude or execution of the masses' reformation in the skies showes the debt we hold and young alike must pay recompence; shillings fall from the hands of the guilty, and they fall into their graven images of gold and silversion updated, self-destruct commencing a song to the great old ones, the dead old ones, slaughtered on the shores of Sirius.
