1. OF SPIRIT AND POWER

Before the dawn we gather we are drawn
Moving in cold state
With hearts of fire, of Spirit and of power
We enter sacred halls to quench a thirst so vast so great
In these hallowed halls
Is knowledge for the Called
Derived from the Source
Our concoctions lain before us
Seven feasts arranged in chorus
Bowed heads signal entry of the force

Shiloh, Shiloh
Glory of battles won
Shiloh, Shiloh
Victories to come
Shiloh, Shiloh
Praise for battles fought
Shiloh, Shiloh
Crowns adorn the Sought

Teaching our eyes to see beyond our minds
Behold the spiritual realms
Revealing the war and what the Spirit has in store
These ancient mysteries provide a way
Drinking of blood and tasting bitter hyssop
Enlightening the soul
Accept this sacrifice
Disemboweling what’s inside
Laid in a watergrave and from this death we rise

Gannon, Chapman, Eckel
Standing proud to greet their sons
Upon seeing the destruction
To the enemy done
To the King they offer these Warriors of Blood

Drinking of blood and tasting bitter hyssop
Enlightening the soul
Accept this sacrifice
Disemboweling what’s inside
Laid in a watergrave and from this death we rise
For before the dawn we gather, we are drawn
Moving in cold state
With hearts of fire, of Spirit and of power
We curse the darkness and destroy our enemies

Curses and Destruction




2. SHATTERED GODS

I am the War Club
The weapon for battle
I shatter nations
I destroy kingdoms
I shatter horse and rider
Chariot and driver
I shatter man and woman
I shatter boy and maiden

I come with a destroyer
And you will be shattered !
As in the days of Midian’s defeat
You will be shattered !
Stand with the gods of Marduk
And you will be shattered !
Devise your strategies
And you will be shattered !

Lift up the banner
Sound the trumpet
Prepare for battle
For I come like a locust swarm
You will become
A heap of ruins
A haunt for jackals
The object of horror and scorn

I come with a destroyer
And you will be shattered !
As in the days of Midian’ s defeat
You will be shattered!
Stand with the gods of Marduk
And you will be shattered !
Devise your strategies
And you will be shattered !

By Azahel, by Sebat
By Adonijah, by Qoheleth
How broken and shattered
Is the hammer of the earth !
How broken and shattered
Is the hammer of the earth !

Baal and Anubis, Belial and Osiris
Molech and Lillith, Odin and Ounis
I will throw you away
Like a menstrual rag
You are nothing more
Than menstrual blood !

Like whirlwinds sweeping
The invader comes
From a land of terror
My way is a whirlwind and storm
Silent ! You Madmen !
I pile your corpses
On the lifeless forms
Of your worthless gods !

I come with a destroyer
And you will be shattered !
As in the days of Midian’s defeat
You will be shattered !
Stand with the gods of Marduk
And you will be shattered !
Devise your strategies
And you will be shattered !




3. ROSE COLORED STAIN GLASS WINDOW

Another sleepy Sunday, safe within the walls
Outside a dying world in desperation calls
But no-one hears the cries, or knows what they're about
The doors are locked within, or is it from, without...

Looking through rose colored stained glass windows
Never allowing the world to come in
Seeing no evil and feeling no pain
Making the light as it comes from within, so dim...

Out on the doorstep lay the masses in decay
Ignore them long enough, maybe they'll go away
When you have so much you think, you have so much to lose
You think you have no lack, when you're really destitute

Looking through rose colored stained glass windows - stained glass windows !
Never allowing the world to come in - they won't lemmie come in !
Seeing no evil and feeling no pain - no feel, no pain !
Making the light as it comes from within, so dim - the light's so dim !
- so dim - the light's so dim !

Looking through rose colored stained glass windows
Never allowing the world to come in
Seeing no evil and feeling no pain
Making the light as it comes from within, so dim, so dim !




4. LORD OF DARKNESS

Colours now fading, the sun burns dark orange
The trees ominous silhouettes
Foul cease their chorus cold winds taking over
Howling through bleak crevasses

With the forest eclipsed sun
And black clouds erasing stars
The crescent moon hoarding its light for its own
I search for consolation that my world's not ceased to be
I sense a night is dawning as never seen before

I pray

He who made the Pleiades and handcrafted dark Orion
He who formed the heavens with the darkness His foundations
He who dawns the blackness and darkens day to night
Whose canopy around Him is the darkness of the sky
Come now Take me !

We walk through dark forests with hells down below us
Far rises oft blacken the skies
No sounds from above to guide as we roam
Only screams for mercy and more screams belie

So we wander, we forsaken ?
Could this travesty be true ?
That Creator cursed His creatures to this dark ?
A distant thunder then reminds us that we are not alone
Leaving our blood-wrought eyes searching for a spark

One Spark !

He who made the Pleiades and handcrafted dark Orion
He who formed the heavens with the darkness His foundations
He who dawns the blackness and darkens day to night
Whose canopy around Him is the darkness of the sky
Come now take me !

A longing for the day of my Lord
A foolish and misguided desire
If you knew you would never welcome this wish
For that day is black as pitch abscessed light
Run as though you're fleeing Anubis
Only to enter Death's Door
Think you have rest betwixt silken sheets
No, it's a bed of vipers he has laid in store !

So now my salvation rises above
So dark that it brightens my night
My nocturnal shining as blinding mid-day
I hear his voice echoing through my sighs

"It is I who forms the light, creating darkness for my own
Disaster from its stillbirth I behold
I will give you all the treasures of the darkness you desire
I'm your Creator For I know the deepest secrets of your soul"

I who made the Pleiades and handcrafted dark Orion
I who parts the heavens with the darkness my foundations
I who dawns the blackness and darkens day to night
My canopy around Me is the darkness of the sky
Bow now to me !

I am the Lord of Darkness
