lyrics

The old gods live inside me
I can hear their voices in my mind…guiding me

Oh, fallen deities I give unto you my complete being
Show me your true form that I may resurrect you through sacrifice

Let the bloodletting begin, this is a war you cannot win
Begone…

The blood of ancients flows through me
Conduits across the ages bearing signs; cryptic glyphs
The visions come in shattered riddles
My pulse pounds, bequeathing strength into my hands

Fall, fall down false edifice
Finally erase all the distress
Blow away as ashes
Bearing the scars of one thousand lashes
Defy mortality
Gaze upon the black stone ever rising skyward
Reveal the grand design
Behold my everlasting unglory

Obelisk!
Your power shines
Obelisk!
Tears of blood fill my eyes

This structure is my legacy
Something that time can’t destroy
A tombstone for lies

All the false idols will now cease to be
Word of my dark deed spreads like plague worldwide
My flesh turns to flame, a conscious effigy

As I burn, the sky churns; unnatural brilliance
A vortex divided by infinite artifice
A doorway, a passage to the beyond opening
My psyche torn apart; in madness my visions come to be.
