Track Name: Antique Blasphemy
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Barbarian Woods
The mountains
Titanic in size
Lumbering through timeless age

Warlike
Induction of rock
Into a soulless wage

Battering (battering)
Bannermen (bannermen)
Barbarians in ancient caves

Thundering (thundering)
Sundering (sundering)
Bones that part ebony waves

Running
Through the forests unencumbered
Slaying
All who stand in my path
Wielding
This axe so mighty
Dying
To kill with judicial wrath

I feel at home in this place
Tethered to this forested space

Villainous (villainous)
Murdering man (murderous)
Killing without discretion

Violent (violent)
In my ways (in our ways)
Embracing the animal within

Shielding
My eyes from the glare of the sun
Swiftly
Cutting through the needled trees
Willful
Succumbing to nature’s power
Ascending
Into a pure bestial state

I am my true self unleashed
Animalistic spirit released

Perceived as vile by those
Who would exile us all
I curse thee to die
Upon my barbaric blades

Drive me to the edge
Where only death shall reign
Killing until the end
My legacy, bloodstained
Track Name: Swallow the Demon Seed
Coven of witches
Congregates in the woods
Naked they dance
Around a candlelit pentagram

Summoning the demons
Of Hell beneath us
Incarnated to recite
Rituals of dark perversity

The horned deity
Standing before them
Mighty portrayal of strength
Satan, master of deceit

Driven by wicked lust
Attracted to the fallen one
They beg for his embrace
Beneath a sky of fallen stars

Swallow the demon seed
Gestate within, the spawn of Lucifer
Swallow the demon seed
Taste the power of pure evil

Surrender unto Him
In this place of blasphemy
Commit the act of godlessness
A rebellion against Heaven

In the circle of fire
Get down on your knees
Feel the pulsing hatred
Swallow the demon seed

Swallow the demon seed
Gestate within, the spawn of Lucifer
Swallow the demon seed
Taste the power of pure evil

Swallow the demon seed
Gestate within, the spawn of Lucifer
Swallow the demon seed
Taste the power of pure evil
Track Name: Beyond the Tomb of Easter
Beyond the tomb of Easter
Lies a portal into oblivion
Where lost spirits dream of death

Release into a netherworld further out

The flayed soul of Christ
Floating there for eternity
Insane with visions of reality's true nature
Existence beyond His father's creation
Do not fall victim to this outer path

Refrain from joining the bastard son
Leave Him there to decay
May his soul rot away to nothing
Amidst desolate thoughts

... thoughts
Track Name: Hatred is the Key
Anger is a primal state
As intense as it is natural
Vital to our sanity

Visualize the enemy
The target of your rage
See him in your mind

Channel the negativity
Into fists of murder
Welling up inside your body

Release the damage
Into the skeletons
Snapping bones in two like twigs

Hate is the key
To untapped resources
To untold ability

Feel the coursing power
Unlocked through hatred
Unleash the fury

Destroy all who oppose you
Take their worthless lives
They are not worth your prowess
They are not worth your prowess

Anger is a primal state
As intense as it is natural
Vital to our sanity

Visualize the enemy
The target of your rage
See him in your mind

Channel the negativity
Into fists of murder
Welling up inside your body

Release the damage
Into the skeletons
Snapping bones in two like twigs

Hate is the key
To untapped resources
To untold ability

Feel the coursing power
Lay waste to the world
Decimation in your wake
Devastate and annihilate
Track Name: Coward
There is nothing beyond death
Just the cold, empty void
Enjoy your lust while you still can
For dying is something you can't avoid

Do not surrender your life unto God
In the throes of agonizing pain
For this makes you a coward

A coward!
A coward!

Embrace the end with open arms
Realize the fulfillment of your life
Not wasted in divine slavery
But free of all religious strife

Hahahahaha!

Do not surrender your life unto God
In the throes of agonizing pain
For this makes you a coward

A coward!

Be the antithesis of the devout
And drown out the cowards with your joy
Be free and wild, child of the unchained

Hahahahaha!
Track Name: Night Owls
We are the children of the night
Betrayed by day we despise the light
The hour is late when the owl flies
And now we awaken with bloodshot eyes

To prey upon the sunlit world
While they sleep in bed sheets furled
Our world awakens beneath the moon
The sunset never sets too soon

We are night owls
Awake when the world is dormant

Our kingdom awaits past yonder horizon
Where the sea consumes the sun
On the eve of every moonrise
We know foul work will be done

Slinking in and out of shadows
We are the few who thrive in the black
Beware the gnarled viridian branches
From their embrace there’s no turning back

We are night owls
Awake when the world is dormant
Rulers of the darkness
We escape from solar torment
Track Name: Dracqueline the Forest Whore
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Seasickness
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Worship Warships
The sky is full of lights
That herald the doom of man
Kneel unto the sight
Of a billion quaking hands

Weep your tears of joy
In the presence of your new gods
False idols destroyed
Placing your thoughts at odds

Worship the warships
Your God was never here
Worship the warships
Embrace the holy fear

Worship the warships
Scream unto the stars
Worship the warships
The new flesh has come from afar

Becoming enslaved
To many-eyed beings
Cursed in servitude
To the deities of seeing

Great fungus of space
Universes cower in fear
At this mad sight
Insanity’s head is reared

Worship the warships
Your God was never here
Worship the warships
Embrace the holy fear

Worship the warships
Scream unto the stars
Worship the worships
The new flesh has come from afar
