Frigid souls that can never feel again
Harvesting the dark magic in decay
Falling deeper into this trance of flame

Feeding from this now withered self worth
Dwelling within this worship of demise
This communion of transfer is complete
Passion stirs in waves of assault
Scraping elements from the sound mind
Return these false Gods, to realms of disease
Transfired on the rotting, harvest of the ascending soul
The fall of dominions, extinction of man
Ascend in this blaze, that engulfs the tyrant
The spirit of twilight, reclaim this dark power
Digest the archetype, in this verse of hate

This abhorrent manner, filthy rite of outrage
A trembling coldness, the collapse of reason

Mount the wings of death, wield the scythe of this ancient craft
Poison Heavens in the blackest flame
Rise forth from this decay
Whispered words from these deadly lips
Secured to the pain from this abyss
Untouched by mortal glare
The throne in the void beyond despair

Bound in serpents coil, a final breath beneath this bitter soil
Fractured hands of time
These frozen moments of a sick design
Spoiled with ageless blood
Destroy the kingdoms on the throne above
Rising legion of the damned
Bring forth the slaughter of the holy lamb

Open my wrists, transcendence, a superb death
A vile custom, of perdition, adorned in this task
The soul of sacrifice, blood for the master
This age of oblivion, a lifeless endeavor

Frigid souls that can never feel again
Harvesting the dark magic in decay
Falling deeper into this trance of flame.


In vengeance the darkness will spread
As these great wings engulf the sun
Birthing this black across golden skies
Heavens will burn and the earth will die
Emptied of guidance and hope, burning the wishes for peace
Rising hatred for this false light
Terror will be heard across the lands
Procession by virtue of war
Blood-stained hands, this fall of creation

Sound this requiem as we ascend, unholy battle until the end
Birthing hatred for the end of Gods
Crawling praise has come to the end of times
Crush the pious icon of delusion
To silence the followers of light
A war machine of this damned cause
Take no prisoners without a fight
Forever in darkness we shall dwell
No forgiveness for all that have died

Reign of inversion upon the skies
Feasting on blood from the divine
Smashed skulls lie beneath our feet, when steel and bone meet
This war on God has just begun
Conquest of freedom will be won
Never turn our backs in retreat, when steel and bone meet

Warn the king of the holy, the time has come
This war will be won, and this death shall be the domain
For the followers of the crucified one
It's death or victory in our hearts, with dead bodies at our feet
Superior forms of bloodshed, lead the way for this deceit
The final breath of defiance, a battle to the death
Raise the flag of the damned

Reign of inversion upon the skies
Feasting on blood from the divine
Smashed skulls lie beneath our feet, when steel and bone meet
This war on God has just begun
Conquest of freedom will be won
Never bow our heads in defeat, when steel and bone meet



From the great hand of holocaust
Great winds erode the structures of an emptied core
Hollowed thoughts of this vision
This existence turned inside out
Impassive vessel of confined hatred
Deviated catalyst that will reconstruct
The embedded image of the damned after all is gone

Behold the secret to annihilate
Wormholes fading into regions of death
Unexplained disease that will flood the misfortune of might
Rebirth in this war of collapse
Defiled idols fall in the ages of decay
Expanding force that consumes, destroying all positive intent

Force of this tragic stride, Hell's unforgiving arms
Vortex of merciless decay, untouched by any theory
Suicides form the Heavens, sink into the eye of terror
A mound of bodies lie in wrath, reaching the hereafter
Reflections of self denied, the demon that eats the soul
Sunken eyes of fear, a path of forgotten pain
The lifeblood of treason, tasting this bitter steel
Sacrament of disaster, wounds that never heal

This venom of revenge, the Judas of black skies
Untouched by divine means, as this earth slowly dies
Machine of destruction, Satan's unholy ways
Burning fire of inquisition, a demise of this grace
An art of sacrosanct lust, this rite of virgin's blood
Disguised by confusion, summoning of the demon legion
The kindred of this ruin, awaiting the fall of this order
Diminish into madness of complete death
This sufficient hunger.


Unresolved essence in a tomb of fates
Obscured by beliefs of this divine rank
You beg and crawl for forgiveness
For an answer to salvation after death
Silent prayers to the riddle of purpose
The shepherd of deceit leads into darkness
Treachery has these masses enslaved
The perfect unison of a tarnished faith
Blindly enter this portal of passing
Raped desire in a promise of this undying

Forgiveness is the failure of your faith
This deed brings the death of the human race
Seek this message in a structure of allegiance
These hidden secrets suffocate the truth
Praise the promised words that seem timeless
Stepping off a precipice into disaster
Failed dispute of this longing regret
Another shallow attempt of life after death

Consuming this hope of dreams, a gathering of ill-fated souls
Escaping the hands of judgment, an urge to be saved
Chained in snakes awaiting this hunger of the underworld
Drawn down from stellar ideals into the bloodline of curse
Dark times have begun, the existence of failing faiths
Becoming the end of awareness, sealed in this tomb of lies
Embrace the collapse of rapture, dull wishes fall from grace
Failure of this transformation, evolve into the untruth of pain

These warning trumpets have sounded
Devour the dying life force of this faith
Unite in descent towards this mouth of Hell
Dreadful entry into the prison of this death.


Falling Heavens in these black flames
Nothing will be excused from the end
Even the mighty Gods will be reaped
Keeping this promise of the final harvest

Painful structure of gratification through massacre
This common ground of perversion
Excavating the blackest acts of desecration
Concealed in the chambers of unreason

Gods of this great death hear the voice of calling
Open the sun for bloodshed upon the Heavens
Tributaries of origin flooding the harvest of war
Transfired on the rotting convergence of ascension
A devouring dragon of war, harvest the magic of decay
To be enslaved in evermore, a shallow endeavor of life
Shards of bone, used to decipher
Unearthly kingdoms, fading away in fire
Hammer of this ruin, feeding an essence of revival
Denounce the ways of the light, nether planes of existence
Silence falls upon us, in the temple of the unfed flame
Denounce the king of thorns, master of this subterfuge
Bodily desecration, in lavish designs
Sculpting the skin, into sigils that bind

The raven consumes the entrails of a dove
Symbolic transfer into darkness
As her for purpose of diluted copulation
Birthing the great beast of vengeance
Lord of smokeless fire, turning the air to cold
Infect the sky with dark, devour the might of old
Return to the cold earth, born from this decay
Forced to return to its rot on this lifeless day.


Vain presence rejoiced, procreate the skill of deception
Enter the shell of flesh, cast from the soul of the cursed
Immoral rise, exiled to the dark heart of this maze
Praise this blood, wield the knife of the slain
Despair if they fail, feeding on their own
Holding on to past desire
Great Lord of death, the framework of this reverence
Morbid appeal, descend into unnatural realms
Glorify the sick, forged by this imperfect touch
Sons of Hell, praise the order of chaos
Stripped of these wings, on a column of fire
Hollowed of this hope
Tomb of black, prison of this fate
Rotting soul, engorge in unrest
Altered state, emerge as the snake
Drowning teeth, into bloodied flesh

This revenge, on the breath of hungry wolves
Death awaits, entrance into the vault of Heaven
This pouring hatred, from the wrist of God's dream
Burning madness, pandemonium breaks free
Witching hour always strikes, feel the bite of cold emotion
Self absorbed isolation
Grinding fangs, dripping with deceit
Urge to kill, tragedy of life
Wrath and rage, anger will consume
Bound by fire, enter into Hell.


Erratic behavior prolonged in the grip of eternal unrest
Defiant in the accounts of betrayal with hateful guidance
Winds from the abyss have whispers of ruin in their revolve
Enter this wake of reality inside the confines of the beast
The irritable demigods of these endless borders
A forming darkness is waiting to swallow all the stars
Scared ideas that will latch to the dead for answers unknown
Entrance to this stolen soul for the hidden most hated desires

The implosion of fading Gods have caused this curse
Screams from a dying nebula will contest these truths
A deathlike quiet pours into the ears of the mindless
So selfish to think any of your Gods would escape
The emptiness of this, colossus

Now the holy names are forgotten
And the thunder moans my death
From far beneath the earth, the fires are burning bright
Abandon idols in decay, corroded prayer of concern
Stop the stances of belief, accepting all things to end
An anguish deserved by many, an anguish absorbed by one
With blood we feed the master, like a long trail into darkness
The ghosts of the past, keep pushing my fall
To awake to mourning, into our dawn
An afterlife of delirium
In the middle of the immense and the dead Gods
Dismember this umbilical attachment to this secure existence
These massive stone foundations, of devotion to the dead
Gravestones for man's failure to cope
With the fear of the life beyond

This apparent link of flesh and blood
An art of destroying, forever breaking will
Another version of the epic flood
This time we are all damned, with no survivors.


Liberate this hazed vision, misery of this great untruth
Guidance of this hatred, creators of the blinding lie
Absolved of this virtue, reckoning of the innocent
Blessed fabrication, teaching man to crawl

Onslaught of the damned, torn from the existence
The death of liberation, on the knees of prayer
Distort this mental salvation, that feeds these laws
Genocide of golden skies, manifest of dying Gods

Annihilation is upon us, threatening to destroy
Vile words of promise, freedom paved in ruin
Captured emotion, for the use of this deception
Sworn to an acceptance of this destruction
Gods shall be renamed
Prophecies will be erased, infected by the human hand
Written plague of restraint, inversion of the laws
That we most despise, rip out these hearts, of this holy disguise
The beating heart of Heaven, torn from the skies
Thievery of this concept of grand design
Destroy the revelation of this insolence
Bastard devotion, raped of this, virgin sense
The inner most emotion replaced with fear
Kill this reborn lie, masters of oppression
The death of a God, antidote to freedom
Beginning of the end, failure for all of man
Revealing the truth, behind the laws that fall
Rejoice in the flesh, of a bastard design
Sweet taste of insurgence
The beating heart of Heaven, falls burning from the skies.


Bare the guilt of intimate defeat
Only to realize it was a moment of unease

Forced upon mankind, like a sharp knife twisting inside
Spill this blood of purity, from a slit wrist ending life
Transfired on this task, revive the dead a final breath
Suffer the curse of madness, wake the rotted flesh of the dead

Splintered shards of broken glass
Tearing teeth through raw flesh
Revival is not complete, rotten soil of eternal sleep
Summon the phoenix from rest, ignite the ashes of death
Call upon the kings of flame, lend me the spell to resurrect
Inhabit the restored flesh for transition of this timely fate
Manifest this chaos of blood
To restore the lifeless and reanimate
Plotting for these final days
Inside a bastard mold of deathly rage
Another sick experimental stage
While kept in this undead state
Like a drop of blood in water, infecting the clarity of purpose

The time has come to kiss the sun
This life of flame is born of blood
Dissecting thoughts of an ending loss
Take the hand of eternal rot
This pain will be forged, under the knife of pestilence
Incantation of this death, cast this the spell to resurrect.


A crown of warfare, a diadem of pain
Count the days of collapse, of these golden realms
Furnace of the bellows, a tempest to make the embers burn
Filling the sky with our screams, merciless mother of storm
Create the enslavement of these tyrant ways
Enter the empty blackness of these final days
Washed away in the tides of this timely hate
Buried in the oceans beneath the sand of decay
Erect this empire from the crumbled remains
Foundation of conquest, upon these soiled minds
Rise from the ravaged, ageless prince of the starless realm
Channel this vision of deviance, in the sacred expulsion of man
Charm of this darkness lures us into the void
Out of corruption life emerges to be destroyed
Lord of unknown awake from this timeless sleep
Buried far below the oceans and in the endless deep

Purification in ritual murder, spilling blood for this sacrifice
Spiraling the knife in wounds of lust
Swallowed into the jaws of collapse
The abyss awaits with opened arms
Concealing this nature of revenge
Unsettling moment of perversion
Creating this path for the condemned
Intoxicating aroma of death, embrace the essence to obliterate
A dead man's scream, beyond the cold flame, voiding the mind
Shocking revelations, awake in the night
Dulled by the poison of life
Where the shadows gather and the night becomes blood
These secrets within the great abyss, the gnawing fear inside

This is the end, the failure for all of man
A silent voice that descends
Unearthly pale fury, another tragedy of God
Awake the horsemen of doom
Out of the abyss we share this fear for the dark
Concealed inside, beyond the light of stars
An angry sky breeds the hate for mankind.
