INTO THE CATACOMB ABYSS

 

Rushing to the shadows as the daylight takes its hold

Portals and secrets hide deep within these walls

Passageways reveal the arcane mysteries untold

Circle of candles arranged before the throne

 

O, into the great beyond!

Reality torn asunder

Dost thou hear the wailing voices of the dead?

left to bleed upon the altar!

 

Sacrament eternal in this symphony of night

Blasphemy of Necrosteel, deception of the light

Sunken dominion sworn unto thine own self

Sealed in the depths of the catacomb abyss

 

O, into the great beyond!

Reality torn asunder

Dost thou hear the wailing voices of the dead?

left to bleed upon the altar!

 

Foreboding dreams

A promise deceased

and fading headlong now into eternity

I bless the blade

with the blood of the slain

and join the Spirits of the Mist

in the Catacomb Abyss!

 

Luna sanctum!

Morte aeterna!

Crypta vetus!

Into The Catacomb Abyss!!!

NEVER SEE THE SUN AGAIN

The wyverns have set you free

Up to the skies, thou art enshrined

I consecrate unto thee

A sacrifice, of blood divine

 

Washed away in your tears

Exalting your darkest dreams

 

The oceans are calling

The stained glass is shattered

As moonlight embraces me

To never see the sun again

 

Elixir of ages

The communion, it has begun

A blessing of tainted

Bestowed upon the wicked ones

 

One never to remain

within the realm of day

In shadows to reform

Thine will be done

 

ETERNAL NIGHT

 

In my dreams I’ve found you

Just before waking and sent back to facing the curse of dawn

Behind the starlight veil

Silent it falls to the floor of the bethel

A destiny dead now sleeps within your heart

 

In the bleak nightfall

Shrouded in silence and guided by lust it sang to you

And the wind was cold

Bound by salvation, sworn by the blade

and sealed in this monument of

stone... in the clandestine world of the trees

Love… now is vanished and far from our reach

Gone…is the spell to invoke your release

aaaaaahhhhh...

 

“He giveth his beloved sleep... Death is but a portal to eternal life.”

 

O, shorelines are burning!

Let it go

a dream of the impossible

 

Daylight is fading

So let it slip away

and live to see another day

 

Midnight is calling

as we take into the skies

and leave them all to die

 

No despair, say your prayers

I'll take you somewhere

far from here

 

VIAL OF HOLY WATER FOUND IN AN ANCIENT, COBWEB-LADEN MAUSOLEUM

 

Subterranean altar, a shrine of eternal decay

A spiral staircase, a lantern lighting the way

 

Twist and turn through your dreams,

Cast of marble and steel

Where the moulds and mildews stay

 

Etched in structures of bone

A mausoleum of stone

Hidden artifacts and ancient scrolls

 

Seven million years!

 

The iron-gate swings wide, as night devours the day

Where the spirits reside, the crystals glow in the cave

 

Branches sway with the wind,

howling deep from within

darkened chambers, it’s unexplained

 

Creep and crawl through the night

Magic reveals the vial

Look ye not into the demon’s eye

 

Seven million years!

 

 

LIGHTING THE MUMMY ON FIRE

 

Deep within the pyramid's tomb

bandaged corpse, bringer of doom

it's covered with dust, it's breaking the spell

Rise from your grave

Lighting the mummy on fire!

 

The curse has returned

the mummy is wakened again

The torch lights the ancient

hallways of death

The coffin explodes

with dust and moths

the moonlight and shadows

forever obscure the night

 

The heiroglyphics are telling the tale

there's only one way to send it to hell

 

Lighting the mummy on fire!

See it reduced to ashes!

Lighting the mummy on fire!

Now the curse is broken!

Ashes to ashes, mummy to mummy

Funeral pyre

Lighting the mummy on fire!

 

Descending deeper and deeper down into the tomb

Shadow figures and darkness and poison mushrooms

The mummy comes towards you

its curse has sealed your doom

the mummy bandages

are soaked in formaldahyde too

 

Releasing fumes into the air

you hallucinate, you don't have a prayer

 

Lighting the mummy on fire!

See it reduced to ashes!

Lighting the mummy on fire!

Now the curse is broken!

Ashes to ashes, mummy to mummy

Funeral pyre

Lighting the mummy on fire!

 

Use the torch

Use the candle

Use the lantern

Use the matches

Use the flare

Use a fire spell

Breaking the curse of your deepest desires

Six ways of lighting the mummy on fire...

BURN!

 

 

REALM OF THE BEHOLDER

 

The Watcher has followed us

beyond the forest and the stream

And in the acrid air, when the light has disappeared

I'll be the last thing that you'll see

 

The portal is alive

burning bright from the inside

The Earth on which you dwell

an angel sent to Hell

and from the pathways thou shalt seek

 

Something calls you to the river

Beckoning us to the water

Promises of the Deceiver

entities are growing nearer

Vengeance on the ones who stole her

Into coffins they are lowered

to the Realm Of The Beholder

 

Inscriptions misguided us

and from the grave there's no return

The magic breaks right through,

and the mirror of your doom

reveals a memory turned to stone

 

Beyond the razor's edge
torn to shreds, they're dead again

And in the final hour

a soul to be devoured

awaits the judgment of The Gods

 

Something calls you to the river

Beckoning us to the water

Promises of the Deceiver

entities are growing nearer

Vengeance on the ones who stole her

Into coffins they are lowered

to the Realm Of The Beholder

 

Cave mortem!

Ulciscar letum!

Monstrum magicae!

Umore gravis!

 

Oh, the odyssey is gone

Destroyed are the landscapes

of your dreams

 

 

A FOREST OF GRAVESTONES

 

Here today, dead tomorrow

in this life I've only borrowed

Somehow the stars are aligned

amidst the altars and shrines

and I have always known

That when the prophecy ends

and when you draw your last breath

you won't be alone

 

To be the opulent one

in the grave, in the grave

Could be the end of us all

Gone away, gone away

 

Born to live, live to suffer

Torn apart, from one another

Though I planned of this day

How could I leave you this way

You will never know

And all the ghosts that I've seen

have sworn allegiance to me

but I have let them down

 

To be the opulent one

in the grave, in the grave

Could be the end of us all

Gone away, gone away
