Track Name: Shinigami Act 1: Waltz of Decaying
Its sinister ubiquity: marching and manifesting darkness,
Percolating paroxysms which are incited by its scrutiny,

Thine substratum compromised, a slowly sweeping departicalization of matter carries us far away,
To the nether realm: a district of departed souls,

Endure the dark,
And don't be frightened at the moment of your perishment for the fragments of your soul shall be collected and fed into the void,

The wanderer... the vagrant... the envoy of death.
The blade it possesses--sewing or consuming the life before it.

Pedals glide and encompass the terrain,
As a collective sphere, the eye of the storm:
A graceful scene for the events to come,
And now, so dances the Shinigami--thus is instilled the bliss of oblivion.
Track Name: Shinigami Act 2: Pulse Osmosis
Never was there beheld a darkness foul as I,
Ever swaying is the oscillaton of the pendulum of time,
And thus does matter diffuse into particles of nothing,

I am the harbinger of death.
You have seen my face before as I have taken from you the ones you loved.
Now breathe in my darkness,

All organic matter forms hoarfrost,
Flesh becomes brittle as the arch of sewing-life displays its radiance,
I will consume you,

Now I am here, my waltz of decaying divesting your mortal body,
My hands clasping your life and absorbing your pulse,

I am the harbinger of death.
I exist in gluttonous eminence, the devourer of life.
