Track Name: Black Flame Ascension
Take the town in the dead of night
Steal them from their midnight sleep
Bring them to the catacombs
Their flesh and bone we've come to reap

Bind the limbs that flail and thrash
Beat the ones who bite and scratch
Keep them all in chains of brass
To them not a word we speak

The empyrean waits for them
Their lives have been condemned
Their blood an offering, a sign of things to come
The first one true communion, a pact unholy union
A bargain struck between our lord and his favored son

Break the veins that keep the blood in
Wash away their wretched lives
Speak the words to beckon him
Upon the alter they now die

The chanting of my thralls grows to fanatic heights
Still warm body fluids fill stone carved channels
A sanguine sigil slowly forms
A foetid wind from nowhere flips worm eat'n pages of the ancient tome

The candles die dark laughter echoes all around
My bones re-knit new flesh
An exchange accepted, a pact sealed
A bargain struck, my corrupted soul revealed

I am ascending
Black flame now guides my blade
Seething with ruinous power
I am remade

The empyrean waits for them
Their lives have been condemned
Their blood an offering, a sign of things to come
The first one true communion, a pact unholy union
A bargain struck between our lord and his favored son

My servants kneel before me
Their judgement ends in death


Break the veins that keep the blood in
Wash away their wretched lives
Speak the words to beckon him
Upon the alter they now die
They scream their last before me
Terror in their bleeding eyes
Their fear a heady drought of liquor
Laughter soon drowns out their cries

I am ascending
Black flame now guides my blade
Seething with ruinous power
I am remade
Black flame ascension
Ascend to slake my blade
My body transmutated
In his image made

A bestial instinct now guides my twisted flesh
Leaving the catacombs I hunt to bring death

I travel north through snow bound hills
I cross the seas of sand
Roads I follow, choked with corpses
Blood stained red by mine own hand

Black flame ascension
Ascend to slake my blade
My body transmutated
In his image made

Undying I'll cleave this world
in twain bloodshed incarnate
Be my reign
Slay through the centuries
To burn this world to ash

Ageless bloodshed
Until the end of time
Track Name: Cathedral of Despair
Put to flame this wretched house of sticks and shame
A blasted ruin where it stood

We drive the nails into the flesh of pious men
Martyrs all before dawns light returns again

The church an abatoir in which we cull the flocks
Colored glass lacerates the orthodox

Writhing maggots ground beneath our boot of steel
A bloody spectacle to bring the curs to heel

Prostrate with platitudes where burning rafters fell
Within this charnel house a vision of hell

Unleashed

Exsanguineted by the kiss of singing wicked blades

We carve the sigils in the flesh to herald black crusades

As burning dead are mourned
Your liars god be scorned

Our battle standards hung with human pelts by nimble stitch
Plead for mercy and you'll find our hearts as black as pitch

Desecrated by the violence of our heresies
The cries of our sorrow fueling our abyssal revelries

As burning dead are mourned
Your liar's god be scorned

Excise them
Baptise them
Cleanse them in their blackened blood
Infernal
Eternal
Drown them all in crimson flood

This scene a tragic thing now penned in blood and woe
We come to Sunday Mass with blade and torch in tow

Exsanguineted by the kiss of singing wicked blades

We carve the sigils in the flesh to herald black crusades

We drive the nails into the flesh of pious men
Martyrs all before dawns light returns again

Put to flame this wretched house of sticks and shame
A blasted ruin where it stood

Exsanguineted by the kiss of singing wicked blades

As burning dead are mourned
Your liar's god be scorned
Track Name: Flight of Mercury
Can you hear the music of the spheres as your last breath leaves?
The keening voices wailing sorrow as your airways heave

And with one last exhalation you curse my whispered name
Like the droves of fools before you that died all just the same

Rest your head my child
Fear not and take my hand

Your hourglass is empty
Bereft of grain of sand

Darkness drawing closer
Few defy the fates
Labored breathing heavy
Oblivion awaits

It beckons to me
It calls me by my name
It drags me from my body

Slumped dead in filth and shame
Extracted
from my mortal vessel

It guides me ever onward
To gates of somnolence
My body disconnected
Departing consciousness

It questions

Can you hear the music of the spheres as your last breath leaves?
The keening voices wailing sorrow as your airways heave

And with one last exhalation you curse my whispered name
Like the droves of fools before you that died all just the same

Rest your head my child
Fear not and take my hand

Your hourglass is empty
Bereft of grain of sand

Darkness drawing closer
Few defy the fates
Labored breathing heavy
Oblivion awaits

A pall of grief enshrouds me
I mourn a wasted life
Signifying nothing
ended by mercy's knife

I pass away consigned to morbid fate
A shameful ending
for which I could not wait

Shed for me not your tears
Give me to the ground
Make me food for star'ved worms beneath the frozen mound

I pass away consigned to morbid fate
A cruel and shameful ending
for which I could not wait

I pass away consigned to morbid fate
A final resting place to hang my weary head
For many years years I've languished ailing in my bed
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead

Rot away consigned to morbid fate
Breathing ebbing shallow
Skulking death in wait
A cruel and shameful ending
the hour growing late

I pass away enslaved to morbid fate
A final resting place to hang my weary head
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead
DEAD!

It beckons to me
It calls me by my name
It drags me from my body
Slumped dead in filth and shame

It guides me ever onward
To gates of somnolence
My body disconnected
Departing consciousness

Shed for me not your tears
Give me to the ground
Make me food for star'ved worms beneath the frozen mound

It guides me ever onward
To gates of somnolence
My body disconnected
Departing consciousness

I rot away consigned to morbid fate
A final resting place to hang my weary head
For many years years I've languished ailing in my bed
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead

Can you hear the music of the spheres as your last breath leaves?
The keening voices wailing sorrow as your airways heave

And with one last exhalation you curse my whispered name
Like the droves of fools before you that died all just the same

Rest your head my child
Fear not and take my hand

Your hourglass is empty
Bereft of grain of sand

Darkness drawing closer
Few defy the fates
Your labored breathing heavy
Oblivion awaits

A pall of grief enshrouds me
I mourn a wasted life
Signifying nothing
ended by mercy's knife

A final resting place to hang my weary head
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead
I'LL FINALLY BE DEAD
