A Hill To Die Upon

Infinite Titanic Immortal tracks

Lyrics

1. OF FIRE AND DIVISION

(Instrumental)




2. PROMETHEUS REBOUND

No sleep, no dreams, no making mankind's peace
The furies for company and the rejection of that infinity

Abomination of my clay brothers...
We are the mud and filth of this earth
Of what we can or would become
This likeness is what we are

Artist of my clay spirit
I am the reclaimed fallen son
Of what we can or would die to see:
A fire in the hearts of men

In blackest day of generations
My end is to end as the dead
We dead promethean sons
End of the dead
"Titans, Behold your God!"
Bow before the potter's Son
My end is to end as the dead
Promethean child!

"Titans, Behold you God!"
He canst become no clearer
God of all, star inwoven
He hast love beyond!

Reaper!
"Champion of heaven's slaves"
Oblivion Son
We canst grieve no more...
Io! Barest of love
Oblivion soul
We canst bare no more...

(Quotes taken from Shelly's "Prometheus Unbound" and Keat's "Hyperion".)




3. THIS KING NEVER SMILES

Live long the curse of Midas!
Be warned of greed and golden pastures.
For years, i've often sat and pondered "What more should I obtain?" "What else is left for me to conquer?"
Power, yes everlasting power
Obtained by wealth and gold
A force that I can touch and hold

Ignorance and avarice
Hand and hand as one

Servant, bring my plate I have a hunger
For I cannot live on my riches alone
Servant night is close, where is my daughter?
What do you mean she's on the lawn?
Call her name, bring her to me.
What do you mean she's stiff and cold?
My own blood now a trophy?
My Dionysus, i've paid your price in full.

My kingdom lies in ruin from their king,
From my own hand my kingdom lies in ruin.

I realize now my life's importance
I realize now my lesson learned
Each step I make towards gold and fortune
That's one more foot in the ground

Please lift this curse from my head
Please life this curse from my head
Just let me wash my hands of this




4. SEASON OF THE STARVED WOLF

Another night brings uncertain hunger
And one more moon might satisfy that

My eyes were meant to sift through shadows
With razor teeth I ache and wait for the hunt
My eyes were meant to sift through shadows
The taste of blood sits well on the tip of my tongue

Who's the unlucky mortal whom fate has forgotten?
Around this town, my dear, the hunt is the law
And now you answer to my jaw
What mindless cattle left their behind to come find mine?
For years we've fed by the moon,
Haunting, awaiting the nightfall
We'll allow you days but after dark we claim these woods
Beware the moon!

And i'll lead these wolves, straight through the fire
Right through the belly of hell
And i'll lead these wolves, straight through the fire
Right through the belly of hell itself

Straight through the fire, straight through the belly of hell, straight through the fire

And i'll lead these wolves, straight through the fire
Right through the belly of hell
And i'll lead these wolves, straight through the fire
Right through the belly of hell itself

We are the wolves
We are the hunger
But beware the moon, we are the night

We are the wolves
We are the hunger
But beware the moon, the hunt is law




5. TWIN HEADS OF VENGEANCE

The Twin Heads: "Two beaks tear at a thousand nation's eyes
Wings beat upon the ears of all who dare to fight

My light shineth the way
Forward through ash and fog and fear
It is flaming madness I see...in all whom I command!

Set flame to a million emperical states
That will not bare my faces
I am at peace with the madness of my race

Two beaks tear at a thousand nation's eyes
Wings beat upon the ears of all who dare to fight..

The Warriors: "Beholdeth what we cannot see
God of gods!
Law by nature, by will alone
Infinite Titanic Immortal

Oh! Faceless might
Grant us the sight
Through the ash and flame
The Hymns of chaos rise!"

The Poet: "Warring iron gods
And madness' undying flame
Carmen ex ignis
Cantus ex metus"




6. HEKA SECUNDAS (ON SLITHERING ICE)

Aphelion! Hail beyond the halls of time
To vast wastes of ice and Alluvial mass
Logos! Ad Pathos! So be it ever after
Thy souls themselves are bringers of disease

Chaos, satyr, servant of stymphalian rage
And that hideous truth that saileth from beyond
Io, lycanthropy! Bare thy claws and fangs
Time shall ever call they name

Ad infinitum

The hand of Gaia
The womb of mother ice
Borealis shines
And burns the will of man
Giants circle and roar
Heka Secundas!

I hath prayed for strength
And my hell is here
And my hell is real




7. THE DARK ROAD

(Instrumental)




8. WE SOULLESS MEN

The continuum I behold, such is my inner want
Not that I should hold above that which is not around me
The art of soul is now meaningless
As I behold my total lack of self

Lo! Demeter
Behold the earth
Above and below
Thou makest believe
Uncreated!
Above the sphere
Rebellious globe
Thou makes us believe

Why, oh why are we left?
To be sin in such perfect a place
The desolate mind is so perfectly spoiled
In the eyes of a raptures snake

Eyes of a raptures snake

Here me speak, brothers of the earth
My words are shattered like clay
So I speak as if thou were a child
Lest fire besiegeth thy hearts

Beckon forth! The soulless mankind
Standing in ranks of thousands still more
But this fate is what i've always feard for we soulless men

We soulless men




9. TITANIC ESSENCE

De natura ex intime dissolutio
I am therefore I burn!
Mysta ex omnis uxorios
Alles soll stehen verwirren

Ars ex liber, ex anima
The descending lion throne
Cogito, ergo summitissum
Alle soll stehen grell

Meta physics and decomposition
Erase and total control
Wait not, nor give in to fear
Submersion in violence

"Warstrength shall collide with warstrength"
Tartarian essence and raptures snake
"For all the immortal," Thraxus immolator!

Havoc!

(Quotes taken from Aeschylus' "The Libation Bearers".)




10. ECLIPSE OF SERPENTS

Io!
Shafts of plague and pythoness gift
The blackness of Bast hast cometh unto us
Heiracosphinx! Slain
By judgement's flaming sword
Canst thou see the blood of the Nile?

IƤ!
Of all blights! 'Tis our sorry lot
To suffer black, night, and boils
Theban courage and Memphian lust
Thou darest stain with blood

Lo! The torment of the snake
Scythian blades - Jackal's feet
Hail! The conquest of...
The Uncreated one

Open the book of Adapa
And behold the coming of plagues

Morbid philosopher
Behind the curtain of lies

Ave! Thou art greatest of fifty - Ave! Avenger
Ave! Thou art Greatest of fifty - Ave! Leviathan




11. RIME
