lyrics

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
