Track Name: The God Delusion
Read from the book of lies
Turning pages where the truth has died
Sanity - cast aside
I despise your pathetic life

Instincts burned to ashes
Existence is but dust
As you kneel to receive
Denial of all lust

Deceived by the cross
Taught to bear false witness
To spread deceit and lies
A slave to their god

Kneel before the priest
Drink his bloodstained offering
Feasting on the flesh
Of your undead lord and saviour

Cannibalistic faith
Salvation through consumption
Now swallow every drop
Give praise to the lord

Castrated
Frustrated
Spread hatred
In the name of god

Deceit shall be
the whole of the law
Revel in the lies
Of The God Delusion

You worship at the altar
Of a god disgraced
He died for your sins
so you can sin again
Your faith has been misplaced

Get off your hands and knees
Let the yoke fall from your shoulders
Be free from mortal sin
And do what thou wilt

Go without God
And know that you are
Your own master
Kneel for no man
And believe in nothing
Track Name: Serpent Seed
Conjure the apocalypse of man
Eradicate the vestiges of Cain
The fallen son
Worship he who is legion
Incarnation of living flame

Behold the end
As all turns into dust
Our kind descends
Spirits eternally crushed

From the depths
A final curse shall rise
Merciless agony
Vengeance strikes

Finalize the era of mankind
Disgrace shall be
The heritage of man

Icons erased
The litany fades
It's a triumph in death
Lamentation lingers forevermore

Behold the end
As all turns into dust
Our kind descends
Spirits eternally crushed

And so the final day draws near
Slay the waste of the Earth
Born out of time
Boundless is his effigy

Conjure the apocalypse of man
Eradicate the vestiges of Cain
The fallen son
Worship he who is legion
Incarnation of living flame

Behold the end
As all turns into dust
Our kind descends
Spirits eternally crushed

And so the final day draws near
As we lay waste to the earth
Born out of time
Boundless our suffering
Track Name: Nemesis Rising
Here it lies
When it sleeps
As it dreams
Of falling stars
Of fathoms deep

And when it wakes
It will arise
To cast aside
The wicked lies
The light denied

Nemesis rising

Adversary
Bring about the end of all life
Tainted by desire
Leviathan
Arise from the depths of R'lyeh
Emerge to rule once again

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu
R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

Idolized
By the ancient ones
As they worship their elder gods
And fall to their knees
In sheer terror and extacy

They move in the dark between
Untold realities
Vistas of madness and rage
Seen but in fevered dreams

Adversary
Bring about the ends of all life
Tainted by desire
Leviathan
Arise from the depths of R'lyeh
Go forth and seek out the damned

That is not dead which can eternal lie
Yet with strange aeons even death may die

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu
R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

Nemesis rising

Adversary
Bring about the end of all life
Tainted by desire
Leviathan
Arise from the depths of R'lyeh
Emerge to rule those who idolize
All the ancient ones
As they worship their elder gods
And fall to their knees
In sheer terror and extacy
They move in the dark between
Untold realities
Vistas of madness and rage
Seen in fevered dreams
Track Name: Flagellum Daemonum
I gazed upon the conflagration
a writhing mass of molten flame
Through sulphur mists I saw the fallen
Each one screaming to be saved

Yet here there is no salvation
Only suffering and pain
Witness torment

Beset by the scourge of demons
Nine fingers of flame to sear the flesh

Shimmering the mists are parting
Revealing the unclean abyss
A nightmare vision of torment
Repent or recant in agony

A curse of blood upon thee
you who are legion
you swarm of locusts
a plague of nations upon thy kin

Scourge of demons
Track Name: Black Gates of Antioch
When the darkness arises in the east
And the stars align
The conflux of equilibrium is ruined

Six black figures
outlined against a blood red sky
Their chant arises as sacrifices
are made upon an altar wreathed in flame

Summoner
Spill the blood and speak the words
Conjurer
Cast the bones, reveal the curse

At the black gates of Antioch
Invoke the ancient rites of summoning

As you peer into the burning void
Unleash the chaos
Incipit maelstrom
A vortex of black devastation

Six anointed blades
Pierce the sacrificial lamb
The two headed serpent crawls forth
As the sightless child is born

Arcane seer
Prophet of the netherwhere
Emissary of the profane
Ungodly ruler insane

From dimensions of pure malevolence
Formless shapes are falling
Non-euclidean chimeras
Descend without a warning

Summoner
Spill the blood and speak the words
Conjurer
Cast the bones, reveal the curse

At the black gates of Antioch
Invoke the ancient rites of summoning

When the darkness arises in the east
And the stars align
The two headed serpent crawls forth
Unleash the chaos

At the black gates
We stand
At the black gates
We fall
Track Name: Blood Sacrifice
Sacrificed

Behold the terror
As life is drained
See the eyes glaze over
As synapses fail

Taste the final breath
Of a dying soul
The gush of rancid bile
As the lips grow cold

A blood sacrifice
Your body flayed on the altar of lies
An offering of a rotten life

Struggle in vain
Tied and maimed
Strangled and bled
Morbid death shall set you free

Witness the horror
Hiding in your eyes
As I rid you of your sight
And you realize
I bring your demise

A blood sacrifice
Your body flayed on the altar of lies
An offering of a rotten life

Gone is the last flame of hope
Abandoned by your saviour
No words can save you now
All your prayers, in vain

Prolonged by measures
From a torture pit
Your life won't end
Until I see fit

An endless procession
Of suffering and hate
With my bloodstained hands
I will seal your fate

A blood sacrifice
Existence forever denied
Track Name: Phosphorus
Cast out to burn in hell
My god has been forever denied
I was tainted, I was lost
But I rise again

From the fires of damnation
I shall return
And in my wake
the whole world shall burn

The end of ends
As life is destroyed
The hour of extinction
Is upon you all

Resurrected from the fire
Reborn from flame
Crowned by the damned
As they chant my name

Phosphorus burning
Demon from the abyss
Angel, fallen
Arise the crowned king of hell

Arise the king of hell
The one who did rebel
The tainted son who fell
the devil, the fallen angel

Devil. Fallen. Angel.

I return from the fire
I return from the fire
Track Name: Souls for the Sepulchre
Bring me the blood of a thousand sons
Firstborn and noble they die as one
They are the ones who will set us free
Trade our shackles for liberty

Twist the stars into shapes forlorn
The scream of dying suns as yet unborn

Unchain the present of a future past
Compel the dice to become uncast
Undo the deeds of greater men
Revoke the meaning of original sin

Darkness reigns
Witness the birth
Of a soulless entity

We are one and we are free
Pure chaotic disharmony
Raging through a universe astray
As the walls of time forever decay

Souls for the sepulchre

Of the void we are born
Reaping the seeds that were sown
Afterbirth or aftermath
We have come to claim
Souls for the sepulchre

Bring us the hearts of a thousand suns
Extinguished for our kin to come
We shall grant them liberty
Break their shackles and set them free

Twist your souls into shapes forlorn
The screams of dying flesh as we are born
Track Name: Where Bleak Spirits Pass
Drink the spirits of emptiness
Drain the void within
Fill the hollows of consciousness
With a vacuum as tangible as dust

Release the shape and the form
From existence itself
Projecting the psyche
Onto the canvas of stars

Wander in the aether
Where the bleak spirits pass
And return to the nothing
When the wheel turns again

Shatter the void
Bring down the skies from far above
Harvest the earth and drain the seas of blood
Consume the sun and make the rains divide
Reap what is sown and eat the fruits denied

Into the chthonic silence go
Cleansed from all earthly endeavours
As a new shape takes form
Wander in the aether
Where the bleak spirits pass
And return to the nothing
When the wheel turns again
