Morts The Human Connection has this band living up to their moniker better than ever! Utterly flawless, this album sees Chaos Divine evolving from the good band they were to the freakin' awesome band they are now, venturing further into prog territory than previous outings and relying less on the death growls to create a greater sound more suited to the band's style and direction. And talk about a killer live act! If you ever get a chance to see 'em live DO IT! It'd be one less regret in your life... Favorite track: One Door.

One Door 06:17
We were one and the same The blood that once passed through your veins Now flows in mine I need someone to blame Who decided to end this game? It’s much too early right now As I call out to you I‘m not sure if you are receiving Can you hear me? It should never be true This void that I can not break through A heart divided in two So I writhe through this night, gazing upwards at vacant skies And it’s too much now, I can’t face this anymore But there’s no escaping, there’s only one door They say this pain will surely fade In time it goes away But nothing seems to change This aching still remains No bridge onto your side I must wait until I die And I'll think of you from dusk 'til dawn I'll hold my breath from night to morn And I’ll call upon our last embrace Tide me over until I see your face again Will the world explode before I hold your hand Will my tears bring lakes to this desert sand And I don’t know if I can be the man That I knew, that you were

I see how you live You’re so positive In your purpose, your being While I walk alone Lost in the unknown With nothing to hold onto I can’t help it I can’t stop it This constant questioning Now I’m getting tired Are we reborn? Does life go on? Does this life go on? Faith now fading for you So please renew Evidence, you forgot to mention, Must exist If we are not to question This devotion 2000 years, on and on and counting Falling tears, these questions still are mounting Why are we here? Proclaim, insist The reason we exist Then leave us with no reason The book I hold The stories that are told Cannot refute the sceptic So I call your name I’m questioning these claims Please give me your rebuttal Does life go on? When the bodies gone At the ringing of the siren Hear the ringing of the siren

You should know That it is not my intention To leave you alone But if you stay it’s under false pretences The faces that come The faces are blackened in me Look to my past Into your future you will see Nothing can last So close to perfect I must leave The faces that come The faces are blackened in me Now I don’t know where I’m going But I know that I can’t stay As I pray upon your ashes Won’t someone please save me From my own hands When’s this rescue gonna come? Can they stop me From destroying all that I love? It wasn’t fair But that was not what I intended I had a duty of care And I let down those expectations The faces that come The faces are blackened in me In familiar waters Lusting storm is blowing over Searching for sanctity Bound to walk this beaten path Molded by fate Now cursed that I must plunder Is it too late To break the spell that I’ve been under? The faces that come The faces are blackened in me Now I don’t know where I’m going But I know that I can’t stay As I pray upon your ashes Won’t someone please save me From my own hands When’s this rescue gonna come? Can they stop me From destroying all that I love?

Claustrophobia impending They’d see through this disguise Symbols turn and run in horror To ridicule the eyes Undivided concentration It fails to bring the gains Taunted by your own impairment The will begins to bend Hold on, be strong, the end will surely come when the world will cease this fallacy Raise your head above the water To be pushed down again Drowning in the constant torment Of those you thought were friends Destiny is what awaits thee Who pushes harder still Fight the fear of total failure They‘ll never break the will This defect is a gift Turn resentment to up lift The wind is changing Surrender the disguise Look past your own demise The wind must change Young child, don’t walk away from your dreams And young child, it's not as bad as it seems Sticks and stones will break your bones, but Only you can hurt you As you crawl inside your shell you hide Licking your wounds in the cover of the shadows, you renew Desensitise your fragile mind, fortify the essence of your insides, calcified Now you crawl out of the shadows To face those that paint with scorn They would hold you If they could bear to wrap their arms around this aberration Their repugnance shining clearly through Hands are shaking A mind of their own who you cannot disown Unstoppable, out of control, never will you tame Hold on, be strong, the end will surely come when the world will cease this fallacy This defect is a gift Turn resentment to up lift The wind is changing Surrender the disguise Look past your own demise The wind must change

Disturbed by the impurity It’s the scar of this masquerade There’ll be no more insecurities Once you pass through this doorway But you knew more Your soul’s paid for This endless fight Rewarded by delight You were incarcerated Within these walls blockaded Stuck on this meteorite Caught in this wicked wild fight The fumes intoxicating The smell of sin unfading A soul restricted by this Impure enclosure of flesh and bone But you knew more Your soul’s paid for This endless fight Rewarded by delight Out of darkness through this night Bathe in the oncoming light, you will Hear no evil, fear no more Rejoice you are home Don’t wait at the water’s edge It’s time to step into the unknown blue As time moves along We forgot that we belong to something bigger To know what is and what will be To see with more than sensory The song you’ll sing is certainty This journey begins Move into the mist This beautiful abyss it liberates you Now a part of the ethereal, the celestial array Born again in beauty impeccable These wonders will never fade Transcend Out of darkness through this night Bathe in the oncoming light, you will Hear no evil, fear no more Rejoice you are home

Silence 05:53
Fortified from the cries No need to apologise We all know that you’ll be sleeping well tonight Hard as stone down to the bone A face of you fear you can’t condone Emotions now objectified A friendship sewn but now it’s gone Lesson learnt I’ll walk alone This trust in you was so misplaced When sympathy is gone Were left to fend alone The sympathy society once relied upon Don’t empathise today Or you’ll labelled as a slave to heart Don’t be ashamed Be devoid of caring Now I’m aware, nothing is important anymore, but time Now I’m aware, nothing is important anymore, but time I fear the chances of us breaking through this silence Are close to less than none And since the day we're born We're forced to live a life so cold It's not alright, it's not okay That our humanity Is all dehumanised When sympathy is gone Were left to fend alone The sympathy society once relied upon Don’t empathise today Or you’ll labelled as a slave to heart Don’t be ashamed Be devoid of caring

Forward, it takes us backwards Forward, it takes us backwards Forward, it takes us backwards Forward, it takes us Beneath these misleading eyes The instinct lies, the instinct you must deny With only yourself to blame The circle's broke The circle's broken Thrive, in the corporate heat More than just stupid a piece of meat Check your destination Conforms to the equation Falling to pieces Your own lineage Why can’t you feel the Need to break into this world Invert evolution Revert this constitution Invert evolution Humanity decaying Life, has become a question Have we lost the human connection? IQs now decay Social disarray Corporate fallacy Leads us to our own demise Breed lunacy Breed out sanity Dystopia awaits A dysgenic prophecy Invert evolution Revert this constitution Invert evolution Humanity decaying Forward, it takes us backwards Forward, it takes us

Astral Plane 06:12
No more identity No more desire Now weak from dormancy This heart's lost its fire So my incentive died So I’m demoralised Asleep behind waking eyes Fading into comatose Falling through the astral plane Lost in purgatory Flailing wings of disdain Condemn me so I cannot fly Falling through the astral plane Never hear a scream There’s no waking time in this astral plane I can’t, hear you I can’t, see you I can’t, feel you I can’t, break through I don’t, know how I might, fall down I sense, rain clouds So I won’t try No expectations No way to defeat Past procrastination Now please conquer me It’s barely survival This futility Leave me in the gutter Beyond the will to compete This lethargy is calling you to come in from the light Never thought to disappoint it Pay the price for worshipping these walls that shield you from outside Agoraphobia anointed Blame my lamenting mind Blame my folly insides This body now atrophied In everlasting comatose

Been here before, or have I? Cannot recall Been here before, but I can’t, see what I’m looking for There’s nothing left only memories remain And until the end, I’ll search for my home Progress haunts my dreams And I can’t stop this enemy Forever stalking me And to the world I’d known, I bid farewell I am homesick, while at home And I’ve got nowhere else to go I reminisce of the last time That I stood on this sacred ground Misplaced myself but I’m still here Never thought that I would fear Losing my homeland I’ve lost my sacred ground Desperate, clutching straws Distant, at arms throw Can’t face the new world I’ve come to Rejecting what is before my eyes Memories, lost and sold Deface times of old I reminisce of the past life No compensation can compensate me for what I have lost. I have lost Grave mound, connections are fragmented To my own ground This wound, created for your welfare Now left unbound Tear it all down No you can’t buy this ground Hold fast, face down This can’t be undone This world goes to, the highest bidder We can only loose, while they desecrate Grave mound, connections are fragmented To my own ground This wound, created for your welfare Now left unbound Victim of our lust No-one we can trust Were all longing for fortune? But somebody’s got to pay Nomad don’t belong Aimlessly I run Never return to my past life A vagabond born by solastalgia I am lost, I am lost Have I been here, before? And I’ll be here, nevermore
