1.
Toil amidst piss and pavement Amidst concrete and stink Results in toil Rewards with mockery Can it be realized? Can it be forgotten? Undone? One by one in the weft Disentangle And the world’s ugliness is old
2.
In day by white Where naught else but ice The waking distance between the living and no longer Built to raze Stone by stone by stone By his own hand Until nothing’s left Until everything is unbuilt Until the child drowns The sky watches on The wind rushes on The child drowns In gold and blue There would be nothing for every name The sleeping distance between the dead The vacancy of a wound A knife that shares your face With eyes like glass
3.
Mazzaroth 06:38
Painting cross a map's burnt edge Mass expands as blackness To spill beyond every thought as ink And murk bleeds into every crease Where all is without name Lines intersect and collide Begin and in tandem end There find Violence; there find Peace Rattling every story on until the telling is done
4.
To a great weight tethered With no reach or recourse From out this force From this motionless stare It remains unseen And looms over me As a reflection in the deepest black In distress In defeat In this unending place With no escape Lost I am lost And a presence grows Looming In which I suffocate As detritus I drift away
5.
Fear is tossed away Silence creeps slowly Thoughts plague my mind I lie still and afraid What exists, I cannot comprehend Swallowed by non-existence Approaching the end Minds shatter at the thought of the unexplained All yields to fate The cycle ends To prod the real And what remains Reach finality Awaiting the descent Reserve my soul for salvation Not present but aware
6.
Fool You who delves for jest You who builds two sides For knowledge when the box is opened Wretched fool With pedantic metaphor With prescriptive slogans or Words beyond your depth And thoughts lesser yet The world bathed in black So robed go forth Unfurled dedications lack Weight or worth Fools all and each From death to birth With naught to teach
7.
Stillness of body Wisdom of form Grant me sight beyond this torment The familiar is false I watch The beliefs are stripped away Lurid perceptions besiege To swallow the mind Trapped are the helpless Awaiting their demise My will remains Escaping horrors As fears will follow Clouded by terror In dormant mind

"Exegeses is a masterpiece of modern USBM that not only displays Anicon’s full potential, but black metal’s as well."
