1. DARKNESS THANT CAN BE FELT
"It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt,
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter."
Blinded may i be
But more senses waken
Of thou would call lies
I deem all else forsaken.
Hated may I be
But love shall then abound
For what is my blood then
Spilt upon the ground.
My place is gained among the manforsaken
My kind shall find our way back to the wilderness
O, thou hast the right!
To annoint my head with vermillion
Mark of the joyful slave
For I have the right
Hight atop the mountain,
Where the World Prince was slain
I see the lone God
holding the hexagram
I am the black space between the stars
I am the darkness that can be felt.
"And the Lord said unto Moses,
Stretch out thine hand toward heaven,
That there may be darkness over the land of Egypt,
Even the darkness which may be felt."
2. THE PERFECTION OF EVIL
"The serpent is alluded to in many passages in the
Bible, and nearly always for its typical qualities, or
habits, as intensifying similar things in the human family."
- Smiths bible dictionary, Serpent
Worship in silence
The God who smote the dragons mouth
Wisdom from the sand
God of all the land
Mystic ways I have sought
Mystic signs have I wrought
I am my fathers son
I shall transcend the Sun
Auriel, despise thee
Gabriel, take hold
And Michael, aside me
Legions of the new world
From sea to blackened sea
Show the mark upon thy brow
In this land I sing
The song of the desert
Among the sands in the middle of the East.
3. ADEPT IN DIVINITY
"...We infer, that perchance he who is to come
shall be called Titan." - Irenaeus, Against Heresies
From the top of my tower
I saw the sign descending
The birth of V.I.T.R.I.O.L.
The death of Yetzer-Ra
By the hand of the Moon
and touch of tyrant Sun
The Watcher of Styx
I have left behind.
Towards Castors portal
The gate of the Apzu
Brought by Gabriel
In search of leonine
The adept in divinity
Sought by Raphael
In conquest of the western sea
I am the left handed
Wizard of the War God
"No fate is shared,
No fate is shared!"
4. THE CHANT OF MIGHTY OFFSPRING
"A crown of thorns is still a crown"
By Saros Vulcanic I am led
Towards all perfection of darkness
To the heights of Hell...
...And the depths of Heaven
I am the mightiest offspring
In slavery I was bred
Brought up by the sword
And mothered by the dead
And thus i danced
For the hate and love bound within my soul
With Epithemus and the Sphinx
Prometheus and the Lynx
Lo, grant me thy namesake
Slayer of the Pantheonic
"Here I am!" Blessed of the left hand
Guardian of the secrets of the forest
Grant me shining eyes and silent ways
...I have come for Asherah!
5. HEKA PRIMUS (ORDO NORMA MYSTERIUM)
"Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come
Down, that the mountains would tremble before you!"
Whilst thou breathe the fire of the gods?
The bitter flame, black as the dragons heart
Ana-elemental, the test of all thats pure
Adra-immortality, so far beyond the rest
Of all silence
Gog and Magog
The winds shall flow undeterred
Aided with breathe and immortal seed
To the four corners of this voidless earth
I shall witness to this new mystery
Reveal to me the secrets of the Sun!
6. I COME AS BLACK FIRE
"We become what we behold.
We shape our tools and then our tools shape us."
Remember me not
The one the eons forgot
My sons shall inherit my blasphemy
Remember me not
Leave my ashes to rot
For nothing good comes from Babylon
Deliver me into the hand of the evil one
For I have been marked by the Nazareths son
Burn black flame and I shall do the same
Tribuo ut Caesar quis est Caesari
Burn great light
Blind by the fallen might
We are the black void between the stars
I shall behold the black flame of Ain
I shall behod the desert god the same
8. MAY THE THINK BE DESTROYED
"For when the mental faculty is joined
To evil will and power of execution,
Mankind has no defense to offer them."
Dante Alighieri, Inferno from Canto 31
Dethroned shall I be;
With one spell erased
By my will, I will be undone
By thy will, I am no more
Now I descend upon this world
Blessed with the silence of all creation
Within spirit and favor
A spell upon my lips
'May the thing be destroyed!'
I reign in an ancient land
Of grace, desert, and war
With the blood of the watchers
And the line of the holy ones
Shed blood! My sons, shed blood!
9. SATAN, YOUR KINGDOM MUST COM DOWN
Satan your kingdom must come down.
I heard the voice of Jesus say
'Satan your kingdom must come down.'
Gonna chant it down gonna tear your kingdom down.
Satan your kingdom must come down.
10. ANCIENT ENEMY OF DEATH
"...The earth was formless and void,
Darkness was over the surface of the deep..."
The dance of the spheres disturbs my song
And the rhythm of the waves beats with the drums
In my wakefullness I see the myth come to life
And from the vantage of my spire I come
With horns I went to the edge of the world
And with wings I shall return
For in the shadow and smoke I was veiled
And of the blinding light I am born again
Deep within the gathering of the seas
The snake watches with lidless eyes
The Titan waits for the woman
The woman waits for the beast
During that hour I saw the lifting of a sleep
For I saw Nehushtan rise from his keep
And though darkness still lay upon the deep
I heard the voices of men give up and weep
