Tiamat

The Sign of the Pentagram tracks

Lyrics


SIDE A

1. NOCTURNAL FUNERAL

In the fields of death at an hour of destruction the wind blew cold
A vast field of tombstones and cenotaphs all moisture-stained
As I walked across the field I noticed a human circle formation
Standing at the edge of a yet uncovered grave deep in mourn

[Chorus]
Buried and forgotten
In the dark and cold
In the moisty ground
Burial at night

Funeral

In the name of the father, the son and the antichrist
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust to reign in death
From the innermost depths of the open sepulcher
I heard a human cry for life and freedom

[Chorus]

"I was mortal but I am fiend, I was merciless
My teeth shatter as I speak to you
yet it's not with the chilliness of the night
but this hideousness is insufferable"

[Chorus]

That deep, hollow, inhuman voice echoed
Echoed down from the pits of the uncovered grave
The former human voice was now transformed
The former human voice is now the voice of the fiend

[Chorus]

bridge:
Behold the vast formations of a funeral in the dark
Behold with fear the signs after a nocturnal funeral




2. EVILIZED

Born on a gloomy night
Raised the evil way
A son of an unnamed
Born by freak

Molten books, ancient scripts
Dreadful tales of evil ways
Interpred the child
Cleanse the world

When the stars are right
They will rise from the sea
Creatures from out of time
Creatures out of mind

Sacrifice to the lord
Light fires upon the hills
Scream the words, the key
Prepare the funeral

[Pre-Chorus]
Sacrifice yourself to the master
Sacrifice your soul to the great
Scream out the words, scream the key
The demolition prophecies are true

[Chorus]
Behold
The funeral
Be evil
Evilized
See that
The world is lost
It's evil
Evilized

Behold the master
Migrate to the surface
Wave goodbye to your soul
And to your mind

Mind-blasting terror
Extreme mass manipulation
Will start up the mayhem
As evil returns

Rancid bodies dismembered
Rigid facial expressions
All covered in blood
Cascades of brains

Reed deep into the books
The mayhemic tales of terror
Horrifying evil visions
Behold the return




SIDE B

3. NECROPHAGOUS SHADOWS

Whispers in the dark held me
Tight in chains of horror
Petrified I sat in the unknown
Cemetary amidst the tombs

Disembodied voiced called me
Inhuman eyes watched me
Cadaver fumes struck my nose
And in terror I turned around...

[Chorus]
I - watched
Amorphous, necrophagous shadows
Dance - beneath
The cursed waning moon

Hands of demoniac dexterity
Swayed through the vague abyss
Struggling in the dark mist
To regain full control

I uncovered the soil
And found a dismembered body
Where the flesh partily
Putrid and partily carbonized...

[Chorus]

Dark winds chilled me
Evil lurked in the dark
Breezes from hell
I could hear all the hellish

Chants and vast
Windborne voices echoes
"Rise in for the master
And the sign of the pentagram"...

[Chorus]
I - watched
Amorphous, necrophagous shadows
Dance - beneath
The cursed waning moon
I - saw
Amorphous, necrophagous shadows
Move - beneath
The cursed evil moon
