Through centuries, unravelling the mysteries and puzzles of flesh but now how it bores me, My anguish is my restless mind. I have watched as the ages passed by Amused by your fated demise, How I long for more primitive times, When violence reigned the strong survived When the battles were unending With the clamour of steel on steel Baptized in blood Ready to fall I feared no violent ending I was not born just to grow old I heard the call of my ancient blood I hail the grim gods of the north Our paradise earned through spilled blood
2.
Miscreant you name me but offer your vine Play Dionysus if you will, Feeding your bloated , maggot slathered ego which holds itself upon such mountanous respelendence I peirce your guise and tear it asunder Woven of such whisping adornments you preening cuck you whore of the court Be abbrogated before your peers I strip you bare and flense your flesh from the bones As hollow as the soul that animates them I hoist my canvas of you my magnum opus for all eyes to see If but your god were here to witness and you dared to mock those who toiled by playing the noble pretender For betterment of a self worth So doomed to demise We deny you that victory and cast you to dust Lament in you fell foul of treachery

We are awakened at last and now have eyes to see the hypocrisy and malignancy of theology and though millenia have passed More souls so naive give life to the lies of the worthless god we despise The frailty of the fleeting coil Binding masses to a mundane existence measured unto judgements and falsehoods of the minesterial perverts In propogation of the christ lie Molested in soul Tending our weakness Diluting ratiocination with manufactured virtues In guise of saccherine promises of distinction For favours of sexual, perverse obidient adornments They spread disease of the mind and flesh Cultivating this plague that knaws us to the core Like a cancer of light that blinds our eyes to the truth so pure So immesurably black so singular and verse It would ahnihilate this curse could we merely cast out to its ocean of knowledge? dochtoral catechisms of vapid bile You spew forth in our hearts you poisonous lampreys of the race of man you rasping bloated toads of the lord so noxiously fecal in lies you have wrought I cast you out! I smite you dead into the void you shall be led I shall escort your christ phage to the gates of oblivion myself I shall rape your churches and burn your holy scriptures to bask in the mountains of all the wealth that you plundered from my felliow souls of humanity so blinded by slime of your travesty you belched unto their eyes and stoked their deepest fears and drove them to holes in the ground so mere

This fetid disease as destructive and virulent as plague this vile contagion that rots at the core of the mind sewing corruption and blinding the masses to truth it is the time of awakening and the shedding of bonds When will you awake from this delusion? Just open your eyes Witness the birth of a new dark age A kingdom of sin Embrace old carnal ways and knowledge Forbidden to thee Inherit the ancient strength of wisdom and comprehend existence! the time of awakening is nigh Just open your eyes Embrace omnipotence in the land of the blind the enlightened is king cast off theestic shackles Unchain your mind Just open your eyes

Veiled neath the hunters moon Swathed in black night they came for me Cloaked in the gloom Far out of sight To the gallows oak i am carried Curse that day beneath the blood red hunters moon MALEDICTUS Judgement proclaimed like razors spells thy doom DIES ILLA Curse that night for I was to lose my life LACRIMOSA Cursed that day, Yes I was cursed that day! hemp braid is placed round my neck Even now at the end no one prays for me Cloaked in the gloom Far out of sight to the gallows oak I am carried

Descent 07:33
Akin to awakening from fitful sleep I am drawn like a moth to flames Out into the sea I can hear the spectral choirs calling out my name the old gods hunger for fresh souls Prepare to enter their domain... I heard the sirens call my name none could resist the song All drowned in crimson waves A creature of darkest sin His will devouring At rapture, none shall stand all die on his command All souls are drawn down deep below no salvation to be found the gate stands open now Thy legions rise to strike the earth No mercy to be shown the reign of man deposed A maelstrom of churning flesh gives powers to hell most fresh Pure hatred for those alive Extinction none survive I thrive within this realm of sin This churning void of souls Eternal torture for those within A maelstrom of churning flesh gives powers to hell most fresh Pure hatred for those alive Extinction none survive The old gods hunger for fresh souls Prepare to enter their domain

Despair 07:22
The waters of life have carved chasms of my soul and fires of the furnace of conciousness have scorched the tendrils of humanity numb Earth has buried and coveted my bones for the claim of oblivion such winds of creation have merely weathered all else to motes of dust I relish the form of it all and bask in its disparity Acrescendo of lament over ages but spent cultivating loathesom rancour An abhorrence of reality When mortals gaze upon the scene and see tragedy I find catharsis in release from this mortal coil I see the frailty in their eyes as they comprehend the end I take great pleasure in the sound of their hopeless cries I witness the hapless humans in their infancy So self assured of their delusional supremacy Now abandoned upon their knees neath the holy see Genuflecting to their worthless, fictional deity When evil prevails and the light of the dying sun fades away and in your despair so sweet and palpable Fire shall rage and consume their wretched temples again and in your despair as your prayers go unanswered again
