Frost Like Ashes

Pure As the Blood Covered Snow tracks

Lyrics

1. NOTIONS OF INSANITY

Thrown to the wolves and you relish the pain
Like a shriveled weed in a rotted bouquet
Glutted on death and you're thirsty again
And like a dog, you return to your vomit
Your place of sorrows and all of your torments
Has become your home and all of your best friends
To quench your addiction inject the drug that has filled you
And to fulfill your life turn to the one that will kill you

Mercy to you
Oh, pearls before swine
God is mythology
In your twisted mind
You're an open grave
A festering tomb
You live like an animal
And you 'll die like one too

Accusator! thrusting needles in eyes
While your empty sockets swarm with maggots inside
Diseases infest you, infections make you blind
Yet you lie in your cesspool swollen in pride
Slave of instinct behind facadle freedom
Doom you to gaze through the bars of diseased addictions
Go ahead; serve your master-for I know him well
He'll throw you scraps from his table
Until you're devoured in Hell

Mercy to you
Oh, pearls before swine
God is mythology
In your twisted mind
You're an open grave
A festering tomb
You live like an animal
And you'll die like one too

To not believe in God
That does not mean
You believe in nothing, rather
You'll believe in anything
An open, empty mind

Thrown to the wolves and you relish the pain
Glutton of death and you hunger again
Your place of sorrows and all of your torments
Has become a razed fortress and your God-forsaken friends

You're an open grave
A festering tomb
You live like an animal
And you'll die like one too




2. A CRUEL VERSE

For a spirit, evil, this way comes
Lament and howl, for this spirit from the North
As a lion coming up from its lair
It will destroy you!

He will throw you down your blood splatters
You'll be trampled underfoot, your body mangled
You'll become as refuse on the ground
When they go to bury you, nothing will be found
For dogs will tear and eat your rotting flesh
Your bones will be crushed and turned to dust
But this is just a taste of your fate
In this, you can trust

Your mothers and your daughters will be ravished
Your pregnant wife, ripped open, torn apart
Your infant children will be crushed before your eyes
Wild beasts will steal your sons, they will devour
He will make your laughter turn to sorrow
He will turn your joy to agony
All that you have gained will burn in fire
He is on His way!

Open your ears, listen well
When you're destroyed, you will feel Hell
It will be better for Gomorrah
Than for you on that Day!

He'll smear the offal from your feasts on your face
Your sacred places will be filled with human waste
Your desolation, so cruel and complete
The flesh of your children you'll hoard and eat!

Open your ears, listen well
When you're destroyed, will feel Hell
Rise then, bathe in Blood of The Way
Then you'll be spared this fate!




3. ADORERS OF BLOOD

You are the Ancient One
The Ancient of Days
The end and the beginning
The object of my praise
You're the Morning Star
You're the Midnight Sun
I Am that I Am
You're the Victory won
You're Lord Sabaoth
Father, Son, mysterious Ghost
Nefarious tremble in fear
Of Your terrible host
You make the Moon blood
Turn the Sun to black
You have slain thousands
With a single Spirit

We are adorers of blood
The Blood spilt from Your veins
The Blood we drink in Eucharist
The Blood we bathe our bodies in
Blood-wrought Salvation

You're the Sacrifice of Blood
The Firstborn of the dead
Corpse fulfilled with sin
Word manifest to flesh
Slayer of serpents
Impending death of death
Castrator of sin
The bitter wine of Wrath
We are the possessed
Possession Aeternus
Your blood flows in our veins
We are The Victorious
Others charge You with murder
Others shake their fists at You
Others don't realize
Your Blood covers them too

We are adorers of blood
The blood spilt from your veins
The blood we drink in Eucharist
The blood we bathe our bodies in

On that same night
I will pass through and strike down every firstborn
I will bring judgment on all gods
The Blood will be a sign for you
When I see the Blood, I will pass over you
No destructive plague will touch you
When I strike

Bathe me in Your Blood
Baptize me in Fire
Pour your Spirit on me
Fill my cup higher and higher and higher and higher and higher!!




4. AFTER FOREVER

Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave
Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?

When you think about death do you lose your breath or
do you keep your cool?
Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope
do you think he's a fool?
Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways
And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days

Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believe in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
that God is the only way to love

Is your mind so small that you have to fall
In with the pack wherever they run
Will you still sneer when death is near
And say they may as well worship the sun?

I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?
You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone
Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one
The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it's too late.
