1. BEHIND THE VEIL

Urgh

What lies behind the veil ? You know nothing
And nothingness will engulf you
What secrets hide from you ? And dare you know ?
What will happen if you find what you're looking for ?

If those lost comes creeping back
Lifeless
When the dead comes creeping bak
You will know regret

Raaheeer
The dead march against you
Cannibal fiends come to swallow your skin
The dead fall upon you

Is it what you long for ? Is it what you fear ?
Is there a reason why that knowledge is lost ?
Resurrecting lost memories
The painful truth of what you really are

Behind the veil

In the arts of death and life
Necromancy, you dabble foolishy

Raaheeer
The dead march against you
Cannibal fiends come to swallow your skin
The dead fall upon you

Raaaaaargh




2. APOTHEOSIS

Bring me oil and flames set my icon alight
And I will rise beyond the constraints of the mortal world

Glorified in dread
A burning godhead
This flesh is but a shell
The earth a living hell

All the living will bow their heads, kneel in reverence
Witness my apotheosis
Away from the worms and filth my soul remains
My carcass left to rot in your dying world

Deified forever upon death
The eagle takes my soul to the gods
Defiers and liars struck down
Their flesh ripped from their bones

They will fear me
When I ascend on pillars of flame

Dominion eternal waits beyond the end
To rule among the gods as I did among men

Glorified in dread
A burning godhead
This flesh is but a shell
The earth a living hell

Deified forever upon death
The eagle takes my soul to the gods
Defiers and liars struck down
Their flesh ripped from their bones

Ydrk




3. WINTER IS COMING

When the darkness fades
When the path before you lies open wide

Don't think they don't remember
The shades that lurk in your presence
Don't ever think that you're safe
But remember that winter is coming

Winter is coming
When the hour comes
They surround you sinister

Don't think that they don't know you
The shades that always follow
Don't ever think of escaping
Just remember that winter is coming

They thrive on your despair

Radryrk

When there's nothing left
When the darkness intensifies

You turn into an empty, withered shell
When the darkness intensifies




4. THE GOD WE DROWNED

We tore him from his throne and bound him in chains
Dragged him through the wastes and scarred his face
The tyrant and despoiler mocked and caged
Held down and bound in a prison of mirrors

I saw his face, contorted
By the flagellation
I saw the faithful mourning
Sordid consegration

But no death was granted him as he languished away
With taunting forms around him, he waited and declined
Bided his time awaiting his escape

I saw his face, contorted
By the flagellation
I saw the faithful mourning
Sordid consegration

And slowly driven mad by the remembrance of what he was

Looking upon his wrecked visage in the mirrors
He clawed out his eyes, refusing to see
To feel the anguish of his mutilated form

The god we drowned lives on
He waits beneath the sea
The god we drowned lives on
Soon he will be free

A final act of vengeance, of torment taken shape
Reflections of the pain that was his fate
Disciples of hatred killed whom they found
To mimic the ruin of the god we drowned

I saw his face, contorted
By the flagellation
I saw the faithful mourning
Sordid consegration

The god we drowned lives on
The tide is rising
The god we drowned lives on
Now come the whirlwinds
The god we drowned lives on
The maelstrom grows bigger
The god we drowned lives on
The god we drowned




5. DEATH KNELL

The blank stare of dead eyes
The dying march on

Grrrrrr

Ten thousand men charged into the storm
Expendable flesh into the dragon's outh

Poundy by ordnance into the ground
Shattered by shrapnel, can't hear the sound

The blank stare of dead eyes
The dying march on

The sky is lit by cannon fire
The ground is burning high into the sky

Yeaararargh
Vessels of blood and bone
Dead things of steel and stone

Hear the death knell
Hear the death knell
Yargh

No epitaph is written the dead lie alone
Forgotten by millions, no deeds carved in stone

No end to the storm
'Til death they are sworn

The blank stare of dead eyes
The dying march on

Hardryrk




6. THE CHOSEN

All light has gone away
Hail ! Hail the chosen !
Faithful servants of god
All hail the chosen !
A covenant of blood

The earth cloaked in darkness, the sun is gone
The lord demands more lives
Bring them forward, brave servants
Soon to know of his eternal thirst

Drink deep and claim your prize
Bestow us light : we avert our eyes

Head are severed, raised on stakes
Bodies form a burial mound
To serve in death instead of life
To please the lord of light

Sacred martyrs, sanctified
Hear the roaring of the crowd

Hail ! Hail the chosen !
Faithful servants of god
All hail the chosen !
A covenant of blood

Raurrr

Offerings ti the god up high and the mob down below
Hearts are torn out, head are falling down

Pierce their flesh with blessed knives
Flay them from head to toe
The sun will come, rise anew
Bring with it the rain of life

Tear out their palpitating hearts

The light must return
Hail ! Hail the chosen !
Faithful servants of god
All hail the chosen !
A covenant of blood




7. THE CULLING

Purge the weak, their end is at hand
That festering filth, the scum of the land

Come with me : I swear I'll show the way
Teach you a new sacrament
Don't worry 'bout the price you pay
You lost souls, the fallen
The bloodshed has just begun

Stay with me until the end
Kill with me, my loyal friends
Swear with me the final rites
Bring me your sacrifice

Now you see clear, you know the ending
Infinity lies there before you go and claim it
Beyond murder, beyond treason
The serpent is coiling

Udryrghargh

Death walks a thousand ways
And lies come in a thousand shapes
You were picked out in the culling
Now you realize that you have

Fallen... your fragile limbs atrophy
Fallen... there's no more for you to see

My livestock, I keep you close to feast when I so choose
Gorged with human flesh, the culling is when you lose
You lost souls, the fallen
The bloodshed has just begun




8. WE ARE THE DEAD

Urgh

Damned beyond all space and time
Wretched deform
Shadows cast by dying men
Beyond the realms of light
Their black hearts know only hate
Scorn disgust
With cold hands they come for you
To bring you into these

Demonic dreams, abnormal screams
Phantasmal pain that haunts you so
They know you they hate you
They choke you, sink claws into flesh

I heard them calling out my name
And I now see through dead eyes
Now all I seek is to feed
To feel the warmth of skin
I saw them rise in visions of the darkness that will come

Rargh

Now you die, your life is lost
So we take your soul with us
Dripping, seeing, through the soil
To our realm below the earth

Raheeeeeeeer

Tell me of the dreams of the dead
Tell me of the dreams of the dead
Tell me of vengeance, nightmares horrendous
Tell me of the dreams of the dead

Demonic dreams, abnormal screams
Phantasmal pain that haunts you so
We know you, we hate you
We choke you, sink claws into flesh

Now you die, your life is lost
So we take your soul with us
Dripping, seeing, through the soil
To our realm below the earth

Yargh




9. WORDS OF WOE

Father, hear my call
Take possession of my mind and soul

Don't run, he'll cut you down where you stand
Your future is in his hands
Kneel down, bow before the lord
Our saviour arises forevermore

Hear my call and help me understand what I must do
My soul I give to you to bring back the dead

Let's go !
Now feel him coming, just out of sight
The deceiver arising

Desperate
Desperate to end the cycle of life and death

My soul I give to you to bring back the dead

Don't run, he'll cut you down where you stand
Your future is in his hands
Kneel down, bow before the lord
Our saviour arises forevermore




10. THE NEW BLOOD

Raaaaahydr

In the city of the damned all time stands still
The distant bleak horizon bodes ill
The wind is roaring ominously
The peoples pray sacrilegiously

Tron from the power of the sovereign
The nooses tighten around their necks
And everything fades away with time
All is grey

The storm approaches, the rain begins to fall
They know that it's the doom of them all

The war is coming
Beliefs are falling

I feel my urge to join the slaughter
Be one with the euphoria

Torn from the power of the sovereign
The nooses tighten around their necks
And everything fades away with time
All is grey

In the city of the damned all time stands still
The distant bleak horizon bodes ill
