Branches swept aside Prepare to override And hasten past the trees As Sorrow's growth entwines me Conceiving to my cost My bearings I lost. Inscrutably pale, wondrous wood Fraught with woes... The glade… Through lonely trees the wind moans Romance in days of old The house… On a wooden roof the moss grows And as I head into the wintry gale Deeply inhaling the waves of frost That have travelled far Through countless forests I taste the sudden inroad Relish the wooden smell of witchcraft At the mountainside I frown... The harvest moon Shines upon the early frost Trees shed leaves in the piercing cold Groan for an ancient moonrise Knowing that these cryptic Wounds heal slowly Scars hurt horribly I revel in endless regrets... Seems to be hard to save his light From the odious day... Theft! My hollow throne purloined Do I wander the forest to learn?
A hoarse moan blows steam into the dark Leavening the night With a regnant weaponed direness As melodies of malady hover in the wind Tunes that the weak chant for their divinity A cadaverous silhouette moves Infuriated by ingrowing scorn Which evokes the urge to interpose And ceases my tearful swoon Imprecate upon their trust Abstruse hate throbbing in my breast Destined to erupt Delights in mouldering charity I submit to my wrath I fleer at your god Ominous steps of haste tread the ground Into the brightness I scowl Espy the last resort Forth I stalk To the source of my insurrection Lecherously I desecrate the cross Soon their eager quest for bliss will end Their hopes will be fulfilled by my hand I enthrone myself Unclosed for their entreaty I storm... Die! Ebullition, ecstasy as my swipes hit violently Boundless might the inner cause Overflow them with my force Their cries Seem to be like hymns of adoration Glare at the hell of the burning inferno Adorning the night And my glorious acquisition Towering I thrive within almightiness But there will be no rest Because in the distance They ache for me to announce the truth
Corpses 05:30
Crying for remission of sins Inner fight against faith begins Couldn't resist the temptation Seduced by the need of the flesh Obeying the merciful messiah Who leads and controls their desires To release them from disgrace and dismay The bastards mustn't see the light of the day Their sins will be confessed And murders will be blessed Absolved from what they've done The truth is forever gone Presented to the posterity A pretended life of purity Deceived by the fear of the god Who loves them Beneath the cross And the place where they all pray Innocent victims of lust will decay Beneath the monastery Brought to their tomb Never to be found inside the catacomb Secret love... Results rot to ashes Born guilty... Prohibit to exist Maintain the honour... The price is their death Religious perversity... Blind and obsessed Murdered at birth, entombed... Slaughtered and sacrificed for their god Crying for remission of sins Inner fight against faith begins Couldn't resist the temptation Seduced by the need of the flesh Obeying the merciful messiah Who leads and controls their desires Innominate corpses preserving the truth Not supposed to be disentombed
Careworn 04:20
Darkest green louring at me... I fled into the mouth of the sultry swamp Warm rain washed down my sweat To the virgin morass My feet sank down into the vegetable mould As I hectically escaped From a disenchanting sun. Abrupt slope in a morose realm... Where the cold is guarding me. I'm freezing... Can I refuse to bask in affection ever again? Grim mass of unsettled hatred Is benumbed by my depressive downfall. I grope my way along a darkened profanity... Meagre I've become On my pagan meanderings Murk obscures my inner moorland regions.
Pavor 04:50
Oh life can't satisfy my pain and misery Fear... demoralized God... sends holy messengers Cry... darken your life Lost in the sphere, within no soul remains Falling... in your sleep they lurk to haunt you Bleeding... colliding with your soul and sanity Your dreams increase their wrath to get you Reality and sense of life will soon be gone Haunted by the creatures That were told to save your soul Embodiment of evil's what you see Trapped inside your world, Pain no one will ever know In the holy end your blood will flow They are told to be merciful and so sweet But now you must see, they incarnate To steal your sanity You're inferior and helpless They will subjugate your needs Immortalized, These nightmares of your death Appear all night And smash your beliefs with agony And now... it might satisfy to dream eternally
I am a wolfish moloch On a foray into ultimate woes... Gaining on the dry cold of depraved lament. The mopes are fadeless Guarded by this sword of mine I am a lordless monarch With unmasked romantic views Soured by chill since times long past Unbowed within Frost's mirthless grasp Cut down the raised hopes Never wane, raw night of mine. Noble storms maul with thornlike drifts Besiege Earth's miscreant bequest. Introversion, A bulwark against vile incursion... Wreaths of ashes encrust my reich Hauled down in Destruction's fatal wake Imperator of this ashen bane To shield my empire from harrowing passion And reminiscence. Rending the light While I brandish the sceptre Embitterment will impel my frost-bound soul To eradicate all life With strong back-up Of the mighty royal hordes. And my baleful warriors Rushing at weak benign foes Trust in my blacksmiths' work. Wild, mythic charm! Dark emotions debouch in a prewar roan Ulterior comrades-in-arms emerge From the most remote antiquity To mar massively In this moonless inclement storm. But Victory will be Confronted with a grieved void... So I reside in Rancour's umbrageous woods And those poetic tears will never be mine.
Insidious fog, draw near to shelter me No single look shall penetrate Into my reich of gloom I absorb the morbid force Of the turbid paleness There is another world apart from mine And only hate can sift to the other side Slowly stiffness grows inside my inmost self As my last "emotions" sink into oblivion Delirious with rage I can never be reconciled With the paltry lives my hate reaches out for For evermore my mental wounds are healed Now I have the certainty That the border will soon open Impetuously craving for the total calamity Unrelentingly I'll eradicate Anyone who's opposed to me Only my hostility exceeds my aggression Overcloud their realm With the darkness I was born in Mastery is mine And perpetually will be There is another world apart from mine And only hate can sift to the other side Slowly stiffness grows inside my inmost self As my last "emotions" sink into oblivion Insidious fog, draw near to shelter me And prepare me for the final storm
Humiliate the weak Demoralizing ways To destroy the soul you seek A bestial behaviour Deep inside the subconscious of humanity The grief of the chosen victim Creates hateful satisfaction Even at the edge of sanity No end of the terror's to be seen Searching for oppressive ways Symptomatic truth The urge to mortify Remains endlessly Symbols of depravity Penetrate their souls Instincts of perversity Lurk within their thoughts
