Prelude 03:33
forget redemption, we welcome you to stay enter, all you angels to the palace of decay bide your silence in your face we see the scorn light another candle for the darkness is reborn so where are your gods in whom you placed your faith tear down your altars and return unto the clay…
2.
Babylon 05:32
Break the holy temples, Wash away your s(k)in Float in time and space combined In Abzu descended, Stripped of mortal shell, Above the seas and below the sky Fading out, you seep into the night Caked in the dust, this is where you’ll die The pillars of creation, Stretch away from sight, An age outside of death transpires Unfulfilled and empty A god without a shrine Lost to all, lost to time Fading out, you drift into the light Caked in the dust, this is where you’ll die Of your wisdom, time will never know Land of lost gods, this is where we go Fading out, you drift into the light Caked in the dust, this is where you’ll die Of your wisdom, time will never know All was lost this was Babylon
3.
Reich of sorrow A shattered dream Embrace the terror of the visage of your kings Rule by fear; And trussed renown Obsequence whittles cattle down Where are your gods? Foul cancers of your creation So on you march Gorging from the trough of hatred Remit of silence Your self is lost Conjoin the faceless in the none-ness of the void Marionette All bound in chain All habit homogenised and grey You are the damned Willing drudges of the ancients Voided and blank Foetid swine bound in ages Teen die aand Diep in jou gedagte Sal ons vreet Op julle angste In your towers Of conceit Hemmed in pride and pandered to deceit We raze the walls We cast them wide Let you wallow in bitter deicide Where are the gods? Do they still serve the faceless? We are the damned Bound by the mystic aegis Julle sal val Een by een Goddelose seun Van die nuwe wêreld

In chains we walk, ensnared in time, Our hopes, ours fear, slit from our minds Dreams like wisps in winds that blow They fade like tracks upon the snow Vision interred with unsung fears, Broken joys entwined (with)in tears Visage contorts, abhorred in marrow No respite cinched in our sorrow In sleep He speaks in our minds Awakened He sees through our eyes In thought He plants his seeds In death We fulfill his needs The clarion rings and we doth follow In darkened void our eyes formed hollow Sonorous chants from realms unseen Entice our minds to deeper dream Isolate, and feed our whims Praise our base and fervent sins Till further out, the cord is furled We’re ne’re to (re)wake to our world A sliver of hope, false it may be A bottled note, cast to the sea We shall ride, the tides of space A footnote in this “superior” race In sleep He speaks in our minds Awakened He sees through our eyes In thought He plants his seeds In death We fulfill his needs

Gloam 04:30
still (the) wind calls entracing, entwining, (the) blackness, like rain falls, embracing, enraging (a) light, (from a) window forgotten (somehow) enraptures (me) (and my) sadness fraught with guile she beckons, "come to me again" lie in mists for ever-while taint the love (that) on one depends beyond (the) mortal fires (and) passions aethereal immortal (i) watch another beyond (the) curtain (he) takes her (he) taints her burning anger (yet) so useless sempiternal impotence i reach out i wail windows shatter lightning calls damned afterlife soul damnation no comfort enstranges (me) (and my) sadness fraught with guile she beckons, "come to me again" lie in mists for ever-while taint the love (that) on one depends
6.
Reaver 03:19
You stand, in ranks upon the mire Encased in steel and flesh and bone Febrile from truculent base desires Tis I, that your (blood)lust controls I am your death, falling from the skies I am your hate, I am the antithesis of life…. I sign, and so your game begins The surge of flesh upon steel Puppets, you dance upon my strings Your wastes are mine to behold I am your death, falling from the skies I am your hate, I am the antithesis of light You see me, you fear me You hate me, despise me Distrust me, condemn me Destroy me in unholy genocide…

G.E.O.f.F. 04:03
At the gates of madness Where the lost and shell-less dwell We succour our ambitions Eldritch gifts abound Strip away the rules and frames Binding skeins of flesh For the ancients’ reveal (Only) to the willing kine Behold the stars The time is now Breach the seals Release the night Nihilistic hold bless with arcane We know the unknown burn flesh away Assimilate the unconscious Welcomed by the void At one with the blackness Formless, endless and none In an aether body We drift the outer planes Severed in surreality Madness ingrain We beheld the stars The time was now We breached the seals Released the night Nihilism held Unblessed with arcane We knew the unknown our flesh burned away
8.
FEAR 04:35
Fear…. In nights it all began Screaming.... The fears of primal man We’re the crawling silence We’re the shadowed realms This is where you’ll find us In your hearts we dwell Screaming... The feeling grips your chest Feeding… (On) The terror of night sweats When it’s cold and silent This is where we hide This is where you’ll find us Hiding deep inside… Fear…. In nights it all began Screaming.... The fears of primal man
9.
Sumer dreams and spoiled wine Salted earth with rizen shrines Homeless hearth and hearthless home Where the ka abides Sallow fields of shallow graves Endless threnodies of the slave; Enlils breath us take away Down below And in the dust Whence we’re returned Cursed to crawl As the worms of the earth As we wend twixt our phyle Twisting skeins of poisoned bile To a heartbeat unknown Erra In the abode of the plagues Where we fetour for the ages And the memories of a man Haunt us still And still we dream In the desert’s night On distant breeze In a lost yesterday….

about

The Medea Project Nottingham, UK

The Medea Project first raised its defiant fist on the east coast of South Africa, a music scene like no other and since then their wandering path has brought them to the shores of the UK.

And then you will hear the voice of temptation speaking in the night, singing songs that will never be silenced. And you can choose to keep your chains, or cast them aside forever.
