Exhuming the Grave of Yeshua tracks

Lyrics

1. INTRO - EXHUMING THE GRAVE OF YESHUA

Somewhere in the dust of time rests the bones of the Galilean
He who was spat upon,
He whose face was marred beyond all human likeness.
Somewhere buried amongst the lies of the past
Rests the tomb of Yeshua,
Of he who was made God in a world without hope.
& When this son of Joseph is found,
What then will the Church of Rome say?
Prepare yourselves for the day is coming,
& Men will say,
"Blessed are the wasted lives who perished in the flames of Holy war."




2. GOD IS ROME

Made a God to deceive the weak
To follow a ghost from Galilee
To kill for Christ in the name of peace
And die alone in poverty.

Raise the cross so all can see,
For you must crawl and follow me,
You kneel in shit before my throne
For I am God and God is Rome.




3. BLOOD BLASTED HOLY WAR

White God, One God
Black God, My God

Dripping red the blood shines bright
Gleaming due of burning night
Cries of God in anger roar
Drowning men in holy war.

Rivers flow with coward's piss
In silhouettes of scarlet mist
Ghostly voices haunt with dread
Where gore beslimes each gasping breath.




4. 80 GRAINS OF SAND

O death in thee I have found
& Found in thee alone
The silent bane of emptiness
This sorrow 'till now unknown.

In the name of God, Allah, Odin
And devils one and all,
I call upon their faceless forms
To resurrect my soul.

In death I face my deepest fear
Alone I waste away,
No God will come this dying day
To take me from my grave.

To disappear without a trace
Like ashes in the rain,
All I am and ever was
Is 80 grains of sand

All I am and ever was
Is 80 grains of sand
All I am and ever was
Is 80 grains of sand.

A life is but one second of forever
& Death an endless path that leads to the lamenting edge
At the well of sorrow.
Tears flow like an eternal rain that dwell in a place
where no sun can reach.
& Here 80 grains of sand rests amongst a desert.




5. GUTS FOR SALE

Follow God for a place in Heaven
Spill your blood in the Holy grail,
Crying tears of rape & torture
Frost bound slain, guts for sale.
Die for God in the mill of murder
Walk with God in the afterlife,
Flesh is meat where birds devour
At the gates of paradise.
Fields of flesh from graves ripped open
Only the dead can see an end to war,
Sleeting snow where bones lay broken.
Tell me what all this was for
Tell me what all this was for
Tell me what all this was for
Die for God, Die what
Was it worth dying for?

Cry for God when your life was ending
Call for God now death is near,
Where was God when you were dying
Reek of war is master here.
Left behind are slaughtered strangers
Enemies become your friend
This is how the fear takes over
When its time to meet the end.
Fields of flesh from graves ripped open
Only the dead can see an end to war,
Sleeting snow where bones lay broken.
Tell me what all this was for
Tell me what all this was for
Tell me what all this was for
Die for God, Die what
Was it worth dying for?

7. SONS OF ANAK RISE

Slain of Hebron, Desert Titans
Sons of Anak rise.
Earth born giants, torn asunder
Sons of Anak rise.

Ishbiben, Ohya, Achor
Beelisas, Arba, Lahmi
Sons of Anak rise
Sons of Anak rise.

Og of Bahsan, Great Goliath
Sons of Anak rise
Horim, Emim, mighty Nephilim
Sons of Anak rise.

With Midian steel the giants fell
All murdered by the Hebrew priests,
& They shall not rise, nor live again
These sons of Anak deceased.

Og of Bahsan, Great Goliath
Sons of Anak rise
Horim, Emim, mighty Nephilim
Sons of Anak rise.




8. A HEALER MADE GOD

Priest King, I don't want to be a God
It's my life, I don't want to be a God
Hang me, Kill me, Fuck me, Burn me

I was a preacher of peace
& A healer of the sick
Just look at me now
I never wanted this shit,
I'm a God on a cross
My face is everywhere
They say I saved the world
But I never even cared.
Everything I ever was
& Everything I couldn't be
Is just another hearsay?
In a distant memory.
I don't remember being asked
To be a white mans Christ
I don't remember being asked
To make this sacrifice.




9. SLUTS OF THE NETHERWORLD

Gods of death, sluts of the netherworld
Hail Morrigan, hail Thanatos
Hail Ahriman, hail Volos
Hail Yama, hail Hades
Hail Irkalla, hail Seth

Gods of death, sluts of the Netherworld.

Hail Nergal, hail Morta
Hail Wotan, hail Kalma
Hail Mors, hail Dagda
Hail Asrael, hail Midir.

Lapping Tongue of raping fire
Consuming hatred of wrathful ire
Of hellish throng and nether bane,
Whom with thy murder shall remain.
Enchanted slaughter hither come
& Let thy infernal work be done,
'till all in Heaven be at war
Less we be slain and breath no more.




10. ON GRAVEN IMAGES I GLIDE BEYOND THE MONSTROUS GATES OF PANDEMONIUM TO FACE THE BAPTIZED WARRIORS OF YAHWEH IN THE SKULL LITTERED PLAIN OF ESDRAELON

In the event of Armageddon, confess
Make your way calmly to the nearest place of worship
Your God awaits you
If your loved ones are disemboweled, do not panic, God is with you
If your men succumb to biological agents, do not panic, God is with you
In these last hours there will be great suffering and much spilling of blood
Brains will boil and limbs will be scattered in ravishing delight
The unspeakable carnage and ceaseless images of decapitated children may seem senseless
But remember, God is with you
Hell is coming and yet heaven awaits the righteous
On gathering at your place of worship, pray to your sovereign lord
Salvation is at hand
If you have sinned, confess
Confess or be cast into the pit of torment until the day of judgement
But do not panic, God is with you
God is fucking with you [x14]
God is fucking you [x11]
God is fucking with you [x8]
