Burn me alive, scorched earth, burnt souls The carcasses rot, torments behold Bear witness Hide my eyes from the light of the dawning eternal Heat from the earth sears a whole through the story I tell Wonder why all the prophesies foretold nothing of this abyss I am weathered commencement severed Clear the waste, renew I am slowly surviving judgement Day by day I change I am better, the future's shepherd I rebuild the age This is hell on earth, hell on earth Two seconds till you asphyxiate, seconds till you asphyxiate This is hell on earth, hell on earth Seconds till you die by my, seconds till you die by my hand Die by my hand, die by my hand Even when our life seems over I will reign supreme, let the earth redeem For it's past failures This I can promise you; the world just won't be the same (x2) Can't deny that the end of the world is finally come I stand alone in a pool of humanity's blood Hunger for life as I knew it, know this, I am the last one left I am weathered commencement severed Clear the waste, renew I am slowly surviving judgement Day by day I change I am better, the future's shepherd I rebuild the age This is hell on earth, hell on earth Two seconds till you asphyxiate, seconds till you asphyxiate This is hell on earth, hell on earth Seconds till you die by my hand
A new age, A new golden age is upon us The sun shines on obsidian, this blade will plunge into a holy reverie Upon the altar lies the one who's worthy, we'll pluck his heart from his chest cavity (Time to die) Between the peaks that rise, his chalice fills with rivers of sacrifice And when the time is come, his drink will spill onto the steps of the sun Now go and be the heart that saves what we've undone This is worth death Now be the heart that saves what can't be saved Worthless Fire is lit within the gaping wound, we'll light our torches from his rife brazier The hearth in every temple cold, suspended, make known the time of empty days is here Years crawl faster as the hands tick closer to the twelve One more until it's over Years crawl faster as the hands tick closer to the twelve One more until the final five And if the ribs should not bring forth new fire Will our God fall from the sky? Be strong, tonight there is no room for failure The light must come and drive the dark away Destroy mankind We'll stand and harken in this solar era The skies will fill with cries of victory Improve design Thirteen Reed Twenty Ahau Transcending into another time
Destroyer 04:21
He builds with chains that can't be broken or maimed (Cold night) Upon the shoulders of the wicked and strange (Come fight) His empire lifted by the fingers of children Woe to thee who stand abroad, in the time of his ascension All you peons stand in shame, in the presence of his glory Between his finger and his thumb, those who stand against his legions Rip your heart out with a glare, defy him if you dare He kills in ways that chill the bones He kills always, forever alone His rise to power was not easy, nor is the strength that holds him there Even his messengers can crush you, he is the bringer of despair Like stones the corpses line the pathways and streets (Stones line) As blood flows freely in the rivers and streams (Rivers and streams) To quench the gardens blooming noxious disease As fetid scalps from slaves hang over each door (Scalps of slaves) Carcasses torn apart by scavenging whores (Soiled, defiled) Intestines glisten from their teeth as they smile Though his heart may seem black, he'll never turn his back On all those who are faithful till the end But when his time does come, to pass the power on He'll share it with you all Severed flesh begins to rot, a mangled corpse disfigured Go now, Destroyer, and rape your willing corpse Feel the inscendio, it flames countless bleeding hearts This reign will live on in his name No man can stop me now
(Chorus) Silently, the plague consumes all Daring the worthy and the weak Equally, equally To turn hands on brothers Near and far These beasts just keep on rising, brought forward from the dead as soldiers we'll keep fighting on They're eating as fast as we can run, this feasting already begun Step forward and be turned This season of slaughter has dawned on us all, now we've become Horrors of the night, horrors of the night Dragging our bodies, though endless death, now we've become Horrors of the night, horrors of the night Chorus Though I trudge through weeds, bleeding on to me, I stand redeemer (x2) Feeding on the brains of the ones we've left behind Cleaning up the remains of a world that we've defiled So sew me a soul and throw me aside So sew me a soul and throw me aside Tell me this is what you've always wanted Chorus Cerebral feast The undead rise
In the royal court of hell, he is a jester Bound tight to Satan's will, he lives to serve All the others roam the hills, their conscience free to make believe The Black Goat waits with ease, waits for the night to see He never shows, 'cause of susceptibility Grinding the bones of infants to make his morning tea The Black Goat of the woods is hiding in shame Causing Pain (Chorus) But on the battlefield, his sceptre turns to steel And all who meet his blade know his name Recreated, the sins of man his repertoire See him changing, his evil's taking form Pieces passed down through the ages, they fill him now Sated, he murmurs ancient phrases, hear the Black Goat's song Chorus (x 2) Displayed on altars Displayed on altars
I am that voice which guides them, I am that heedless tale I am their rhymes their stories, I bring a warning listen well Cause behind all those childish phrases, a darker purpose waits And when our dreams they learn their places (Filth) Step light through darkened hallways, (fable) don't tempt what's creeping there (Filth) There's no escaping nightmares, (fable) not when they've become real (Filth) No room for nursery rhymes in, (fable) this ageless carnival (Filth) Your head become a vessel, (fable) travel the ethereal Just listen, their words are so macabre History, hid in a children's song Life lesson, what one should and should not fear Imagine, punishment so severe (Chorus) Even progeny can fall to common subreption (x2) All of a sudden, you've been shut in Scream till you're hoarse it will do you no good Christ has sold his soul to the wicked And now they're coming for yours too Inviting, a world beyond the real We're hiding the filth behind a veil Resurgence of fiction's canopy Conceal, the guise of tragedy Chorus (x2) These are the tales of our time
My fists will fly to seek the remedy That festers sweet in fallacy Tied to a stag and bound by hands and feet Constricted, restless like a catapult I see the red, my eyes are closed Hung upside down amongst the starving wolves (Chorus) Anger I'm yours, invade my heart like venom Take all you find, seep in enslave my senses Vacant of core, flood through my veins like poison Fill me with fire, render this world defenceless I've killed for less I've killed for less, bitch Abject it dragged me ragged, a host to utilize This anger sharp and jagged, blind and unjustified When all is lost and won, still it remains behind Unfettered and free to run, This madness undefined Pay for you sins Pain, internal, guide my hand Flee from this fight, make my stand In hadal acres, and endless terrain of constant, this menace will not sleep Abyss of tempest, a raging storm inside this, tenebrous chasm deep This twisted ailment, a blazing force it drives me, malevolence without yield No way of hiding from this treachery A nebular menagerie This avid feral beast inside of me Submit the light and share the carnal need Surrender mind and feed the greed Take up the knife and now at last concede Chorus What a way to kill
Four In Hand 06:19
Sin and an aversion to right Such things have become hallmarks to his existence Character flaws don't exist This hallowed cult must desist This prophesizes their death The world will burn, and you will embrace it Evil rides in on Saracen sons, chore, tossing them in our midst Demons, gifts from this giver of sin for ages of treachery Feel them writhing into our skin, angels can't hear us now Lean on habits that used to kill, feels good when we are one Luxuria Lust Gula Gluttony Avaritia Greed Acedia Sloth Ira Wrath Invidia Envy Superbia Pride Saligia Sin Driving horses from the stables, deep within the flames of netherworlds of purgatory Four in hand he rides among us, he won't stop as long as man is prone to hatred Sorrows aside, he brings misery From beneath the reins Ascending, collecting, preparing for wielding pain From beneath the reins Stop, he is near, hold your heart in your hands Feel the age old torture Fly from the fear in your soul, how you know He is right behind you Look to the sky, dark will come, he will rise See his chariot flaming Sin will revive, stranglehold, drown in vice Feel the pain of his pride Still hearts don't beat Black death repeats (x2) Feel his presence, one you can't forget Look to the horizon, see his silhouette
