Lyrics

1. RAPTURE

Confront me, unholy ones, bastard saints, scorn of the earth
I summon thee, now poison me
Death under will, burn in my soul

Exalt me, enemies of the lamb, intrude, we are of one
Under will, I walk the path of sin, with your spells, I die again

Raise, me, from mortal, my will, be your will
My words, speak your words, your pains, raise me to bliss

What of this anger now, received to lance your enemy
I feel the energy, the poison moves in me
(I spill blood)

Scorn of the earth, I witness, in rapture, born again
Scorn of the light, I bear scorn, in rapture, I'm reborn

Confront me, unholy ones, intrude, we are of one
Under will, I walk the path of sin, with your spells, I die again
(Again, again, again).




2. PAIN DIVINE

Release this, fury, malediction
Cursed existance, writhing in this life of dissent
Pain for, pleasure, pain for, adoration
Pain is to Godliness, bleeding for ecstasy, ecstasy

Divine, pain, divine

Locked in vicious, offer to the Sado-Gods
Nails driven through my dreams
Bleeding, pain is a God's reward

Gliding through these, dungeons
Heightened senses, overwhelmed
Hedonistic, rupture, endurance, makes one divine

Divine, pain, divine

Locked in vicious, offer to the Sado-Gods
Nails driven through my dreams
Bleeding, pain is a God's reward.




3. WORLD OF SHIT (THE PROMISED LAND)

Bred from the bowels, sheep one and all
Bound by the doctrine of lies
To fucked human shit, I shout blasphemy
As I make my way, thru to the promised land
(Land, land)

Smell of shit is so foul, writhe in disgust
Earth heaves, death comes to call
All the waste, cling to your lie
You are as sand and the wind blows
My disgust, a fever, to kill a thousand more

Gene dead from birth, God's holy fuck
Canonized, but of no use to me
Human shit, waste, begone from my earth
Desolation, no life bodies littering
Beast of earth devour, cleanse this world for those who deserve

Burning cities, all is well, I remain in mine
As the waste in sewer flows, thru the promised land.




4. VENGEANCE IS MINE

Naught within this circle, all but emptiness, expelled
I am deep in wicked, and whore to demons works
Master, I call thee, master, surround me
With evil in our hearts, this night we take revenge

Mote it be, Satan's sword, I have become, no son, shall escape
No word, left unburned, the power is in me
Hell-spawn in aeturnum, I burn with hate
To rid the world of Nazarene

This night of splendor, the beast arise in me
This is my destiny, my sword shall take, life

Mote it be, these unholy ones
Mote it be, reduced to naught
Vengeance is mine, with all its emptiness
My sword delivers, I curse this day in memory.




5. THE LIONS DEN

Beasts awaiting, restless, circus victims, panic struck
Hunger spawns bestial, frenzy, commencement of the feast
By the sign of the cross

Whips crack, centurians, might be known
Christians standing, breathless
Circus victims, panic struck, scream arena, butchery
Where is their God, as the faithful meet their end?

Judgment has passed, who questions this law?
Pagan belief, of sacrifice

Kill them all, kill them all for slander
Kill them all, and mute their ways

Kill them all, kill them all for slander
Kill them all, and mute their ways

Judgment has passed, who questions this law?
Pagan belief, of sacrifice.




6. BLOOD ON MY HANDS

Death, to, my, vision, blind I shall serve, give rise to, God war

Hateful seed inside me, scald my mind of all but truth
I concede, I am the chosen one, open wide the gate
Stain the world with the blood of man
Affliction, forced unto all, human, vexation
Transcend with blood on my hands

Spirits of the grave remember
Rise up O powers from the land of Til
Plague and madness, spread thru this world
Burn in me, I suffer, your will

Death, to, my, vision, blind I shall serve
Give rise to, God war (x2)
Yeah

Spirits of the grave remember
Rise up O powers from the land of Til
Plague and madness, spread thru this world
Burn in me, transcend, with blood on my hands.




7. ANGEL OF DISEASE

Plastic souls, melt within, cauldron's burning black
Chanting to, Ancient Ones, chants of broken lines
Kneel before, alter, sacrifice is made
It is pleasing to the ones, ancient of the days

Call the prince, of disease, messenger, of the Absu
Carry through, icy winds, curse upon their church
Hanging helpless, above the pentagram
Sacrifice swings, within leather noose
Sing the ancient hymn, that makes the Abso roll
Raise the rusty knife, let the blood of Kingu

Sudden death, throws off the balance, that's within the sky
Priest calls forth, infernal names, to the ones beyond the gate

Angel of disease, one who shuns the light
Shub Niggurath, goat with, one thousand young

Angel of disease, one who shuns the light
Shub Niggurath, goat with, one thousand young

Praise the beast, the chanting grew
Praise the beast, with virgin blood
Praise the beast, with soul and mind
Praise the beast, and show the sign

Bind their kings, iron chains, execute, the judgment for them
Come and taste, the fleshy pleasures, orgies of, endless time

Beneath the rolling for, hate ignites their eyes
From their graves the dead rise, answer Nammtar's call
On a twisted cross, the virgin corpse, hangs
They blacken out the sun, burn the elder Gods

Morbid priest, calling forth, abominations of the sky
Kutulu meets, in the void, Ancient Ones, rule once more.




8. SWORN TO THE BLACK

Spawn of the ever, rolling abyss, ever espousing, unluminous
Charred soul, burned at rebirth
Quest not, save the death of the sun

Repulsed by the light, heart pumping ice
So cold to this world, reclude until the summoning
Sworn to the black

Our father, begotten, not made, before, all legends of man
Receive, my loyalty, my offering
In my veins, the blood of the ancient brood

Repulsed by the light, heart pumping ice
So cold to this world, reclude until the summoning
Sworn to the black

Burning inside, I feel the call
Blood of the Ancient Ones, now boils
At war, war with the race, father rise and the world be one

Repulsed by the light, no feeling for life
Drained of my being, I lie dead, but still I'm sworn.

10. GOD OF EMPTINESS

Lies, and you fill their souls, with all oppressions of this world
And all the glory, you receive? So, What makes you supreme?
Lies, and your crown is falling, I offer fantasy
And you, creator blind, with envy

Let the children come to me
Their mother loves me, so shall they
Woman bleeding, ate my gifts, man was close behind
Just like a snake I'm slithering, thru my world divine
And like the cat I'm stalking, I'll take your soul
And you'll be like me, in emptiness, in emptiness

Lies, and you fill their souls, with all oppressions of this world
And all the glory, you receive? So, What makes you supreme?
Lies, and your crown is falling, I offer fantasy
And you, creator blind, with envy

So let the children come to me
Their mother loves me, so shall they
Woman bleeding, ate my gifts, man was close behind
Just like a snake I'm slithering, thru my world divine
And like the cat I'm stalking, I'll take your soul
And you'll be like me, in emptiness, in emptiness

Just bow to me faithfully, bow to me splendidly
Bow to me faithfully, bow to me splendidly

Just bow to me faithfully, bow to me splendidly
Bow to me faithfully, bow to me splendidly.
