1. An Involution Of Thorns

Eko, Azarak

Eko, Eko, Zamilak

Eko, Eko, Cernunnos

Eko, Eko, Aradia

Darksome night and ardent moon

The chalice is passed, then ye fall North

Hearken to the enchantress' Rune

Listen to words to cry ye forth

Earth and water, ether and fire

 

Wand and pentacle and sword

Toil ye unto our desire

Hearken ye unto our word

Unfettered and censer, scourge and knife

Powers of the enchantress' blade

Waken all ye into life

Come ye as the charm is made



2. Descent To Acheron (Evolving Into The Progression Of Woe)

Pour water on thyself

Thus shalt thou be

A creator of thy dawn

An aurora of the sun

 

Charon will inhibit his entrance

The fields and dwellings of relapsing ruins

Find thou thyself in every Star

Achieve thou every possibility

Listen! Heed not the siren-voice of thought

 

The fable of river #5

Deliver me athwart the Earth

Forsaken loam of wondrous slumbers

 

Thee spiritual and thee fertile

A spawn of full equilibrium

But whose availeth is in this

For thereby there cometh impair

 

Facilis descensus Acherni

Noctes atque dies patet

Atri ianua Charnus

 

Sed revocare gradum sperasque

Evadere ad aurus,

Hoc opus, hic labor est.

 

Repeat 1st Verse

 

There was not a formal sepulcher

Not one sector for the interment

Troth with thee Empire of hope

All effects are welcome to Styx

 


3. An Equinox Of Fathomless Disheartenment

Ecliptic sects are obtained by fluxions

Phenomenon of the Holy Qabalah

Will intervene with the serpent of Daath

 

The inmost godhead of Phallus

Deems the temperament of Kan and Yi King

Ancient attitudes of equipoise

Drastic seasons of ceremonial permutations

 

There is not a creation in the firmament

The direction to conduct an angels choir

I'm still pleading to the heinous-eyed cherubim

To see this bemired vesture of waste

 

Equinox!

 

You are the force of Lotus

And The Path of life

The Venus in my Cancer

And consolidation of the dyad

You are the strict joy of ecstasy

And the power of yellowish light

Luster the Garden of Kundry and cover Laetitia



4. The Thrice Is Greatest To Ninnigal

The detestable Xul

Is chained to Ninnigal

Acknowledge the prayers

Subsequent to Earth

The Seventh gate of Nana

"Outcry thy sin!"

While the Sixth portal of Lord Mastema opens wide

 

Disengage thy passage

Nana: God of the Moon: I convoke to thee

 

Our terra firma regrets burning the scriptures

An abyss will seek menace towards the reign once again

Ostentation of your heart is a heart filled with lunar parallaxes

 

If you look

The elders anticipate the arrival

...Of the black and amoral innocents

 

If you look

The Celestial Pantheon will burn

...Burns the prediction of persecution



5. Infinite And Profane Thrones

As we journey over to the summit

We hear the echoes of dispossession

Who is to worry about our affliction

When my body departs from the shame

 

The wickedness! - My sinfulness!

You may swell to the Elysian fields, but the Befall of Marduk will trace the literal truth

 

The Utuk Xul! - Wine's Holy Fool!

Whereby to capture and atone the clouded soul

 

The weeping apparition

Looks for duration

Conjectures of being vulgar

Then godless ways

 

Euphony sounds the sanctum bell

I will structure the ordained spell

Guide the mistress versus the throne

Here's the first seed of the inquisition

 

Black lake current sailed past the rushes

Dismal heights will melt the scarlet snow

I'll give my sorrow to the lady in white

"O' pale flower, you'll feel the vein in depth"

 

The wanderers of the eroded

The Gates of Ganzir!

The Magnum Opus

The Xenolith!

 

Monuments of a vanquished civilization

A cenotaph of theomorphic conjurations

Sempiternity to the ones of our underworld

Archetypal images awaits the declivity

 

Infinite and profane thrones

Abysmal sighs of the damned

Feel the intention by depressing your own God



6. Fantasizing To The Third Of The Pagan Vision [Quoth The Sky, Nevermore (Act II)]

I stood before my reflection

With a beloved adherent

Waiting beneath the cross for a purpose

To drink my tepid blood from the chalice

 

Impart thou in the text of Scourge

And cleft through the veil of the Virgin

 

Purity is to live

To the Highest; and the Highest is unjust

 

Chorus

Fantasizing to the Third of my Gentile sight

 

In the gale of the mind appears,

And arise with turbulence called I

 

Repeat Chorus

 

The artfulness of the blind Shabbathai

For thee have I worshipped the Stars

I cried, while you perpetually died

.....On top of Black Montanus of thy Septentrio

 

Animus of an aged Tetragrammaton

With stains, a lucid cicatrix of disgrace

With joyful, elated Endeavour

 

O’ lilywhite goat

Frail as a thicket of thorns

With a collar of gold for thy throat

A crimson bow for thy horns

O’ lilywhite goat

You made my Paganal dreams erroneous



7. An Evolution Of Horns
 

Goat of the welkin, A Goat that dwells

Horned conqueror of the night  

 

Lend your skill unto the spell

And force our will by magi(c)k rite

By all the endowment of land and sea

By all the might of moon and sun

As we do will, so mote it be

Chant the spell, and be it done

The Sun Of Tiphareth

1. Apzu


Sea of Uruk
I taste the salt of you
I hunt through sands of Roba El Khaliyeh

Dumuzi Apzu
Your allure is so very pure
Zi Dingir Anna Kanpa
You shall drown the fearless ones

The sword of Lapis Lazuli Diadem
Your fullness and strength is my delight

Edin Na Zu, Edin Na Zu

The stars have spoken to me
They've told me the tale of your past
Battles were clashed by you
Long before the cosmos existed
O' mountains of Mashu
Please help me to find the grey stone
I lost it, yet it's symbol unequals your race

I am in search of the Northern Nineveh; it's beyond the hills of Zagros

I thrust my sword onto the veil, and then, in the Earth
Reversed lightning strikes Sumerian sands
They glance at me with eyes of Sunkun Varloorni
Their eyes flare red with glowing embers
Follow the path of gold and ye shall find the symbols: Arra, Agga, and Bandar
In my sleeping village of Bet Durrabia, Shabatu forces the nineteenth hour

Ye go to thy Apzu; the unsightly abyss of Enidu
Ye go to thy Apzu; the impious axis of Enidu

I have traveled beneth the seas in search of our master's palace
I have finally found the grey stone of the immemorial ones

I have raised my armies in the lands of the eastern, summoning hordes
I have seen Ngga, God of Heathens, as my sword Diadem gleams

The cosmos shall be greeted from the blood of thez serpent
A serpent well known as Tehom Mummu Tiamat
Man shall be greeted from the blood of Kingu
Thy queen of mashu will haunt the vision of your breed

O' my queen, I feel your skin of white, I touch your breasts of life, yet
there's a battle I must fight

Zagros, Avagon, Ngga, Shabatu

Thy skin of white misses you
Please don't leave me ever, nevermore
Unless you go, please take me with you
We'll ride onto wings of Anzu

I heard the bellow of wolves behind the half-burnt waves
The tides of Uruk swept your tongue across the salty floor

We have found the Apzu; our birthplace toward Avagon
We have found the Apzu; our meridian toward the dark

Munus Sigsigga
Ag Bara ye
Innin Aggish Xashxur
Gishnu urma

Apzu


2. Feis Mor Tir Na N'og (Across The North Sea To Visnech)


Across the northern seas, we travel
The cold freezing winds will arouse us
Spells from a woman have sent us to the seas of Avagon
Transformed by our mother, we are
I am CuChulainn, the warrior of Ulster
We'll search the lands to discover the Tir Na N'og
The sea god guides our ship to Ireland
The storms push us to the palace of Visnech
Our swords with fire are rising
Our axes with fire have risen

The call from the silver horn to Visnech splits the air
Warriors answered the horn behind the western lands
Hoofs and steel hammered past the cries beyond the thorned hills
Acknowledging the commands from the king
Our play lies north to the path of Nite
And brings us upon the fortress walls where battles raged

Raise the magick hammer of Mjollnir
Your underworld of Annwvyn draws us through
Emer, thy lucious woman, I shall sleep with you
I kiss the naked skin of white

I lust your black hair, my woman divine
I see a holocaust in your eyes
(You are my princess of live)
(You are my princess of life)

Feis Mor Tir Na N'Og

In the land of Visnech, the darkness never sinks away
All will fall upon the southern steel, yet behind the burning fires
Now, we bathe at the bleeding coast, while women laugh with the Gailant
knights

How sad is it to see my father's fallen halls?
Can I feel the pure blast from the frigid winds?
I awake the gods Epona, Cernunnos, and Lugh
Yes, I'm CuChulainn, warrior fo Ulster
[repeat verse]

In order to worship with fire and sword
The storms shall force us to the palace of Visnech
Cold, cold, how cold are the plains of Lugh?
You should ask thy Emer to reply
We've finally found the last paradise
It remains in the light of Tir Na N'Og
With the hand of Ler, Irish Sea god
We shall complete our long excursion


3. Cyntefyn's Fountain


The dragon's guide is chance
When the waters are disturbed
In the name of the great Pythoness
Cyntefyn burns with the ground


4. A Quest Into The 77th Novel


Long ago
-in the shade of timberlands
Horses and wolves united
-with our invoking orbit
In order to blister
-the green summer plains
We heard commands
-from our benighted master:

"Reap from the illumated sky
...and become visible to thy eye!"
"I beseech thee; I entreat me"
"O circle of storms, my shield is cracked!"

We stand here to cultivate
And summon smoke from the meadow
A sweep of an athame
(The widdershin), willunlock the deep portals

Long ago
-in the shade of timberlands
Horses and wolves united
-with our invoking orbit
In order to blister
-the green summer plains
We heard commands
-from our benighted master:

"Ye overseer of the watchtowers below all clouds; we thank
you for framing the Rite of Hagiel. Bygone and beyond, we
must always and without ease, be explused.

The season or solstice is complete when the shepherd of
Wolves lie upon vanishing hill's way. We shall lure thy
lost flock from shadows onto day.

Aloneness is our space of winged sleep and sight; therefore,
watchtowers burn before the lift of the twilight"


5. Our Lust For Lunar Plains (Nox Luna Inlustris)
[Instrumental]


6. The Coming Of War


Evil
Summoned to war
Eternal conquest for power
Gathering armies of death
To fight and kill at will
Sinister weapons of war
Piercing metal and man
Warriors
Mounted on steeds
Ride out into the mist

Awaiting
The signal to attack
Swords clash and men fall to their death
Aimless pawn
Only to die by my hand
Battle cry
Blood stains upon his chest

Endless
Eternal Pain
Thousands die for a king
Wretched
Weary souls
Raging battle never ends
Hatred
Inflicting death
Destroying the weak at heart
Eternity
Becomes less
War has drawn to an end

Overthrown
The emperor falls in defeat
Great halls
Crack and decay with neglect
Dethroned
He cries out in vengeance
Impaler
Mark is words of death

Shadows
Crusades of the past
Triumph through the fog
Sunsets drip into dusk
Flows like blood on my blade
Massacre the feckless breed
Dismiss all empty thrones
Riding, beyond the clouds, damnation ends in despair

Awaiting
The signal to attack
Swords clash and men fall to their death
Aimless pawn
Only to die by my hand
Battle cry
Blood stains upon his chest


7. The Sun Of Tiphareth

Join us into thresholds of moonless light
Xekonaphim paints your worshipped wheel of flames
Incendere Magi Hortus Rosarum

Black roses, laced with silver, are now the ashes of Heximeth
The sten stars of Assiah wonders why the meadows are torched

The holocaust of Atu brings down the pyre of Chokmah
Chokmah fills lust into the virgin stream (silent waters)
A Heximethian spirit looks below the edge of a cliff
...and watches the thieves of serpents
(worm of the eight-fold-star)

Join us into thresholds of moonless light
Xekonaphim paints your worshipped wheel of flames
Incedere Magi Hortus Rosarum

The sun of Tipareth's circle arouses the warlock and seed
Sephiroth plants your heart to grow his oak of VITRIOL
Sepher Yetzirah is the deepest root of Atu
the sun of Tiphareth's circle dances until it falls

Tiphareth!
Your lordship is the sixth sword that triumphs teh jagged blade
Strike it downward to a rusty point
...and burn the earth as roses burn in the meadow

"Come forth, o serpent, and take your fill of poison"

I am above you and I am inside you
My fierce eroticism is in yours

"For he is ever a sun, and for he is the winged secret flame"

I am the snake that kissed Gehenna's own worm
I giveth knowledge and delight to the ones

Black roses, laced with silver, are now the ashes of Heximeth
The ten stars of Assiah wonders why meadows are torched

 

 

The Third Storm Of Cythrául

 

1. ...And Shineth Unto The Cold Cometh...


Laughter from Esharra is convincing, but unclaimed.

The last of Ka drifts across the river
- Our sky outside has not been named.
Two Ugalla-demons start their battle
- Tempest of the creek is floored in flames.
Winds of Imhullu foretold their weather
- Sea-dwelling floods reply without names.
Taste the salty tides of the Apzu
- Alight seven tablets wearing steel of lame.

Laughter from Esharra is convincing, but unclaimed.

Chorus
6000 years past away to let the Utu tribes hear the lying words against
Azzta's truth.
6000 years past away to let the Utu tribes hear the lying words against
Azzta's truth.
6000 years past away to let the Utu tribes hear the lying words against
Azzta's truth.
Ea's eye is the way........

Repeat 1st Verse

Lead: Shaftel

Bridge
We are the ones who know the mountain passes,
and we'll search the battlefields,
in order to FIND THE ESSENTIAL WEAPONS corroded within the tan dust.

Marduk, Anu, Ellil, and Ea watch us all to test our bold and drastic strength,
so Tiamat SNEERS WITH THE HATE AND COMMANDS the storm-chariot of the horses.

Their teeth and heart carry poison to strike us down,
but cannot fill our veins with venom.
We warned you twice:
"WE COMMAND THE MUSHUSSU!"
"SHARP OF TOOTH AND STRIKE OF FANG!"
"HORNED SERPENT OF THE UNCLAIMED!"
"SHINE!"

2nd Verse
Make a path, fix the hour, and raise the seed
The dragon's semen is what you drink to be crowned by night
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, kiss me!"
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, kiss me!"

With the billowing fog, the abyss speaks below
Your wings of force cannot warp you through the times
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, caress me!"
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, caress me!"

In the ninth aeon, Esharra ceases the laughter
Then, Imhulla assembles the blazing cycllone
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, embrace me!"
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, embrace me!"

Now you are spiritually drunk from the dragon's semen,
So set your arrow in the bow and coat it with the poison
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, clutch me!"
"Belet-ili, O great pythoness, clutch me!"

...AND SHINETH UNTO THE COLD COMETH...



2. Highland Tyrant Attack


"You will hear my commands when cries never fade!"
"I grasp my pole-ax in hand with stock, steel, and mace!"
"I clutch the soulless winds that stir the Ginger trees!"
"I extol beneath a wrathful, yet a constant lunar eye!"

The last clash will crown one son to the Pictish throne.
"My father's the king!" cries this tyrant, aimed for bloodshed.
Three flags will fly between the Esk and Dee rivers.
"The triumph's my king!" screams this baron son, devised for war.

Follow the tracks of this mailed horseman (geared with pole-ax in his hand).
The blades from Balkan Hills are sharpened (cut for slaying and whetted to
fight).
The child has proven his gallantry (he shall not abuse Teutonic codes).
He's spiked and sent forth in a frenzy (their king sits at his table).

Repeat 1st Three Verses

Bridge
"Far free of these castle walls, I thought I heard your scream!"

Chorus
THIS IS THE HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!
They eradicate the feeble by their Celtic law of tanistry.
HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!
The rank of the cnihthad is the onslaught for their enemies.
HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!
Garters on their left arms are fastened for chivalry.
HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!
All of the vanquished battalions are thrown into the corries.
HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!
They eradicate the feeble by their Celtic law of tanistry.
HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!
The rank of the cnihthad is the onslaught for their enemies.
HIGHLAND TYRANT ATTACK!

Recapitulation
"Our flags have soared O'er the Esk and Dee rivers!"
"We, the cnihts, are crowned for tier and not our lies!"

"Horse and Hattock took us back to the realm of Balkan Hills!"
"We, the cnihts, have formed the lines, before the rites!"

"We'el pursue to spit on their pledge and curse them, as the light breaks!"
"...But is our king still sitting at his table?"


3. A Magician's Lapis-Lazuli


He gave me the noble, enduring crown.
He gave me the high throne of kingship.
He gave me the imperial, regal sceptre.
He gave me the laws of the realm.

He gave me the facts of the Kurgarra.
He gave me descend in this undersphere.
He gave me the dagger; he gave me the sword.
He gave me the staff and unphallic wand.

He gave me concern.
He gave me dismay.
He gave me consternation.

He gave me the art of this song.
He gave me procreation.

A magician's lapis-lazuli gleams in Uruk, descending to my undersphere.

He gave me a sail on an Anzu-Bird; he gave me notes of thunder.
He gave me the feathers from it's wing; he gave me regalement.

He gave me a mark of the fiend; he gave me roots from the Huluppu-Tree;
He gave me travel of the Apzu; he gave me the Lapis-Lazuli.

A MAGICIAN'S LAPIS-LAZULI!


4. Swords And Leather

...With sword at my side,
The horns sound the call of assembly.
Black fuckin' leather is my way of life, as flames and burning winds cover the
Earth!
(slaughter!!)
Miles of frozen lands are far behind us...
We ride along the margin of the woods.

O' great is the black swords of Eire.
Thus to speak is the shame of your lord.
We ride through the bleak winter skies; hearts full of hate and steel shining
bright!
Alas, it's ill, to walk in my shadow...
O' master of doom, you are alone.

In chariots of fire we went forth,
To call the spell of blazing flames.
My black sword of Eire has returned.
In glory, of the land, of the flame.
Child of wisdom and words...
Son of magick and the sword.

Call the spells of burning winds!!

Chorus
SWORDS AND LEATHER - ...with steel, flame, and honor!!
SWORDS AND LEATHER - ...our brave hearts will conquer!!

5. The Winter Zephyr (...Within Kingdoms Of Mist)


One silver cloud collapsed below the glow of a harvest fullmoon.
`Cause we're here to make an oath and we'll raise our realm in a sky of maroon.
Our stratosphere turned dark; however, the Western winds never stopped blowing.
All deceiving religions fall, we'll gonna close our hands, and make our own
way.

Chorus x 2
Ignite the wroth flames -
3 fires to the sky
Before the violence,

We'll rape the peace.
We stand before the most, wild beast.
Once again,
We summon you,
To join us all!

Standing upon the sand of the shores was a Queen, with a crown, of 13 stars.
She worships the dragon above, which exalts impiety in that wild beast.
Our father is here with us and we'll summon you to join us.
If we're bonded by jewels and blood on our fists, then we hail you within
kingdoms of mist.

Repeat Chorus x 2

Gorias! (The silver sword of the moon)
Finias! (The flaming lancet of the sun)
The winter zephyr warps the power of Sessair - 3 MORBID SCREAMS!


6. Morbid Scream


A barbaric land where the sword is the law, and killing is the way of life.
An infernal wasteland and down a barren plain; A warrior stands the test of
fate.
His face is cracked from the wicked hands of time, and scars from war have
past,
Taking the reins from a shadowy steed, I shall kill the foyus at it's layer!

Chorus x 2
MORBID SCREAM!

2nd Verse
Skulls and bones lie relics in the sand; Remembrance of men that came before.
The ground is scorched from the dragon's breath, and corpses burned to stench

I awake in fury when the dragon attacks; Advancing in anger - spitting fire.
Our barbarous laws, my thundering axe, yet we'll fight the beast to it's death!

7. Customs Of Tasseomancy [Quoth The Sky, Nevermore (Act I)]


Two spheres are calling me to the "grounds" where I use to plead.
Madeleine, my animated sister, you're dim like the candle in my dreams.
You are the Succubus of twilight and eventide.
(The gypsy that deludes me with copulation)
So, let me form the contours of your trance and lament with the virga that
cries from a cloud.

1st Verse
Ginger trees exhibit eyeless shades of trust.
Sapphire flickers of light divorce the leaves from an Oak.
Kali Ma! Kali Ma!
You incise me with claw and nail.
You hold the rings of Siva.
You hold the shapes of melted wax.

Chorus
Praise this disrespectful light for crashing down.
Tasseomancy!
Time frames shall warp you through the frames of time.

9. ...Of Celtic Fire, We Are Born/Terminus (...In The Eyes Of Ioldánach)

Outside the winter zephyr,
When fables of sabers were strong.
"...For thou hast said in our hearts..."
"...From Celtic flames, we are born."
The Sky Clad flocks a carnal war,
So invoke their heartless cries.
"Crom Croich's at our side."
"He's made of gold, so shall we ride?"

From the mounts of Antrim,
Towards the glens of Visnech.
"...For thou has said in our hearts..."
"...From Celtic flames, we are born."
Any who live alone,
Long onlt for mercy.
"Proud, young men will die!"
"Fir Bolg rides the half light!"

"WE HAVE ARRIVED AT THE STONE OF DESTINY (Tara)."
"WE HAVE REACHED THE PERDITION OF IBID (Cythraul)."

"We comprehend the Lar of the Folk."
"Chuaigh muid ar na canai areir."
"We solemnize the last of the Druids."

They stare at the stone
He'll upend the plate of angles;
She'll upend the plate of angles
V dashes of Mercury
For Asaru's Alchemy
Will channel V archangels... V archangels

In the planets we forget
We've come unto a hall and Asaru is who we've met"

V cards are placed in the hand of the course.

Closure is the apex;
One curve is the asp,
But the snake is a path in light
These twins are emerging,
Geminis still verging,
Yet Atu still carries the knife.


2. Hallstatt


From an empty house...

In take-flight, the grey hawks verged upon a sunless sky
Wild, whistling winds carried them sorely, and sailed them bristly in the same shady sky.
In take-ground, branded the mark of hall and heave; their martyrs never left
2000 years, 2000 urn-burials, 2000 lies have now been erased.

Chorus
"We'll kneel towards the foyer with our precious salz!
We'll sound with horn, clash with wood and cleave with calls!
We've whittled the blades of Hallstattian swords!"

In order to see such a legacy, fire burned with a past that turned;
Anvils were forged at an early stage, molded as cats or iarn-leastair.
Ioldanach has spied on this mistery, yet he's enkindled by the light
With hues of argent lightning and ore of purem the salt grants them mastery and might.

Chorus
"We'll kneel towards the foyer with our precious salz!
We'll sound with horn, clash with wood and cleave with calls!
We've whittled the blades of Hallstattian swords!"

"We'll kneel towards the foyer with our precious salz!
We'll sound with horn, clash with wood and cleave with calls!
We've whittled the blades of Hallstattian swords!"

Noble warrior of lycanthropy
I am

To shake thy cloak shall bring outbreak

I am a tempest: the onslaught of outburst
I am a zephyr: theirs is second pain

Remember me thou art all wind
And back with gusts thou shalt return.

I'm the hawk: above this cliff, behind the waves
I'm the thorn: exude this rose, yet fleece the sky
...fleece the sky
I'm the hill: where poets walk and Tara lies
I'm the throne: from a tantalizing glimpse
...from a tantalizing glimpse.

Hear the thunder roll

4. Never Blow Out the Eastern Candle

Never Blow Out The Eastern Candle
Your five-fold kiss was rather invoking;
Beside the chancel is your unphallic wand,
And use it wisely in order to fly.

MOONFIRE!
ALLAXITOS!

My jewel is the lust from your kiss;
Your breasts made me the lover of the three-fold locus,
So take thy hand and join me for elixir,
And we shall ride the portentous serpent tonight.

Your five fold tongue has defiled me,
I'm stranded by the tree of Storax
Thus, we banish your unphallic wand,
In order to make our nexus ecstasy

MOONFIRE!
CUM TO ME.
ALLAXITOS!
CUM WITH THEE.

NEVER BLOW OUT THE EASTERN CANDLE!
NEVER BLOW OUT THE EASTERN CANDLE!
NEVER BLOW OUT THE EASTERN CANDLE!

FOREVER

2. Pillars Of Mercy


Cairn Warrior's Atrocious Assertion to War
I (still) admire the flow of echoing horns.
Mimicking blows so boldly, I hear...
I stand visibly, high, on this splendid bastion,
To remember a High King, a tyrant of no fear

I am the first son: a commander without a father,
"Fortuitous doom," the last of his predictions.
I'll take advantage by igniting the balusters...
Preparing enraged flames with sweltering speed.

Chorus I - Cairn Warrior and Art Aenfer's War Exclamation (High King of Tara)
(THESE ARE THE) PILLARS OF MERCY!
Today, I am callous...
Tomorrow, I am king -
Immortal, strong, exultant, and conquering!

Chorus II
PILLARS OF MERCY!
My song and my word are iniquitous -
Gathering assemblies in days gone by!

Chorus III
(FIRE BURNS WITH THE) PILLARS OF MERCY!
My chariot races through saw-toothed hills,
And hurls through every valley and mere!

Chorus IV
PILLARS OF MERCY!
Watchtowers collapse before the lift of the twilight,
I am swift in battle-
My voice is heard!
PILLARS OF MERCY!

Frost, fire, and wind are pelting all the columns...
There is no dilution for them to fight again!
Only three chariots are seen on the charred plains -
Through all the throngs and clusters, lambs and stallions!

"If you should speak to me now,
Then I will chamber Tara's pinnacle.
Why my father? Another damning scuffle?
I (still) admire the sound of echoing horns!"

Chorus V - Cairn Warrior and Art Aenfer's War Exclamation (High King of Tara)
(THOSE WERE THE) PILLARS OF MERCY!
Frenzied vultures gnawed the necks of dead men,
As the sturdy, gilded columns had seethed!

Chorus VI
PILLARS OF MERCY!
Enemies' blood spurted like volley sprigs-
The blustery fight was planned, then fought!

Chorus VII
(FLAMES FLAYED ON THE) PILLARS OF MERCY!
Their vapid minds were troubled and sides were pierced-
And warlike deeds had been fulfilled!

Chorus VIII
PILLARS OF MERCY!
We saluted chieftains on the regal Tara -
We hailed the tyrants that governed our waters!
PILLARS OF MERCY!
STRIKE!

Terminus
There shall be no lack of dignity,
For those who oppose them.

Repeat Terminus

"THERE WILL BE PILLARS OF MERCY!"


3. A Shield With An Iron Face


Mongán
A Cairn warrior dressed in his harness feeling fury and frenzy.
His silky top had blood stained gauze stretched across his pecks.
His tartan had lines of symmetry running east and west.
An embellished shield with an iron face was embraced in his left hand.

Bridge - Eremon (Chieftain of Cairn)
"I welcome thee, o' victorious, I'm skirmishing...at the lift!"
"I welcome thee, o' victorious, I'm skirmishing...by the dark!"

Mongán
He rushed to feed the fire,
As honor gained him a home -
He veered beyond the pyres,
The Son of Cairn sat enthroned.
An iron shield gaped toward the sky,
With oak wood and leather backing;
Reprisal lead the way to his mind,
And so it did.

Cairn Warrior's Question of Vindication
"Cá bhfuilimid ag dul amarach?" ("Where are we marching tomorrow?")

Chorus - Ioldánach
A shield with an iron face gapes towards the sky,
The death of a man is never going to die.
A resolute falcon gawks back at the armor -
On the wing, yet on the lifting hour.

Repeat Bridge - Eremon (Chieftain of Cairn)

5. The Cognate House Of Courtly Witches Lies West Of County Meath


Cairn Warrior's Appetency of Invultuation
I am the one to seek the courtly witch -
She is the one to find me.
I am the one to yearn the dazzling bitch -
She is the one to bind me.
So I say, the spell has begun!

Tea (Courtly Witch)

Cairn Warrior
Stones of power inside this sphere

I am aiding the mystic writ;
I am gifted knowledge from deep wells!

Chorus - Cairn Warrior's First Myaltic Rite
Candle of fire, candle of might,
Create my desires here on this night -
This candles stream is suddenly flaming higher!

Bring to me my heart's desire,
My words of strength are suddenly hung,
So I proudly state this spell has begun!

Cairn Warrior
Stones of power within ire
are strong stones of cabal.
I am joined int he magick round,
with this bitch, as we implore.
We shall explore.
With Paralda by my side,
I am granted sylphs and zephyrs!

Cairn Warrior's Second Myaltic Rite
Show me the rings of your cosmic fire,
Make my pathway carved and clear.
Give me a code that's no will of mine,
To show me your presence is here!

Repeat Cairn Warrior's Second Myaltic Rite

Chorus II - Cairn Warrior's Last Myaltic Rite
Courtly witch of the beast -
Courtly bitch of the daring arm,
I am your tyro, yet never alarmed!

A dash of thistle, and in my dreams -
Give me the silver-gilt key,
That will unlock the spell...
Courtly witch, assist me!


6. She Cries The Quiet Lake


Cairn Warrior in Advocated Manner
Stones of power
Stillness of her spawn
Gems of symbols
Re-illuminating

She cries the quiet lake

Weeping waters
Taciturnity
Found
She cries the quiet lake

Dripping ruptures
Immortality
Bound

Enduring: death is mine to keep
Timelessness: unborn in timely shape
Balancing: between stone and sky
Promulgate: lamentations

Continually: she wails and she whines
Nonetheless: linking stone to sky
Leveling: the tarns to the tides
Circulate: limpid-forming tears

Tea's Diktat
"The darkness is starting and control is done:
The cosmic light is fading, as the shadow's won."

Chorus - Cairn Warrior in Encouraged Mode
It's the lake of your liquid, glass heart
It's bringing your writ; it's bringing you tears
It's filling your thirst and never with fears
It's the tears of my liquid, glass heart

8. From Ancient Times (Starless Skies Burn To Ash)

 
Blazing to their pikes
Turning to dust
Gusting with the wind
They (still) dream of an older delusion

Reigning, raining
Dampening the empire
Their excursion burns with the ashes

Calm lakes mirrored
Glistening everywhere
They rove through the waters and fires

Silent seas paused
Enlightening low light
Their visions for imperishability

The weakened flesh
Expecting downfall
Their ashes spread through lightless, starless skies

The Eminence
Not expecting wind
They (now) think of a newer illusion

Chorus
PRAISE - The ancient times
AS EARTH - Equates their end
COMMAND - The ancient times
LIKE TARA - Shall never pretend
DIES - Irae, dies illa
QUIDQUID - Latet adparebit
NIL - Inultum remanebit
DEPOSE - Towards ancient times

Repeat Chorus

Repeat All Verses In Reversed Order Excluding The First & Last

Between the symbol,

12. Stone Of Destiny (...For Magh Slécht And Ard Righ)


We are three high kings in honor.
We are the midst of Dagda's spell -
We are three armored forces, and
We are the gold-torqued leaders.
Three wild horsemen:
Three fearless in combat -
Three gold-crowned conjurers of clash, yet
Three clannish chiefs from the Kingdom of Midhe...

The leading, foremost tyrant -
The subsequent tormentor, and
The past intimidator of Cythrául
Are impending.
"Has there ever been a better idol than Dagda?
Will there ever be a better icon than myself?"

"In the eyes of myself, I fervently speak."
The trio goes out at dawn.
Fiercely, we plan to fight our assailants:
Three of us versus three thousand: complete.

"In the eyes of myself, I adroitly scream!"

"WE WILL ARRIVE AT THE STONE OF DESTINY." (Tara)
"WE WILL REACH THE PERDITION OF IBID." (Cythrául)

INVINCIBLE: we are to their spears!
INTREPIDLY: we occupy our posts!
A FORECAST OF DESTINY!
INVISIBLE: they are to their hands!
INSOLENTLY: they amuse their own pride!
INTERCHANGEABILITY: INNERCHANGEABILITY!

"With the sway of myself, weather means disaster.
I affirm each day for the men of the brave."

Repeat Verse

As our swords of steel, their mead, and courage are fused.
Is it not the throne for our Master of the Gulch?
On its trim are rings of pearls, polished.
One seat remains near the jaded citadel.

First Supposition - Narration
"The plains of adoration do lie somewhere below Tara, way below Tara, as a matter of fact.
Sometimes give as Moyslaught and as always, Crom Cruach is welcomed."

"With the sway of myself, weather means disaster.
I affirm each day for the men of the brave."

Final Supposition - Narration
"The notorious Klan stands by the ramparts at Tara where all enemies are approaching.
Being bound by a geis, the three have no choice but to stand against the feeble units.
Enveloping in an opaque mist, they suddenly find themselves in a magical place where they are
received by the deity Manannán and a courtly witch. Finally, they begin to walk up the steep
grassland of Tara, with wand and sword, which enables them to distinguish the truth from the lies."

It is the chair for our Master of the Tor.
It is embellished with bullion: marked.
It remains on top of the lofty mound.
It streams gray and silver lining.
It will be an accolade given to us.
That is, by the third of the last king.

Absu

 

1. Between The Absu Of Eridu & Erech


An empty void will always enlarge itself
It stretches from the nether waters inside
As the chaos lives again: vapors condense
Ushum-Gal allots the beasts to the chantry

Eridu!
Erech!

The waters twist and turn
The malign sprite dances

The natural fiend strikes
The bottom of the sea

How deep the engulfment sleeps?
And the chasm, how deep?

How deep the engrossment haunts?
And the gulch, how deep?

The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Eridu:
It will call the temples
The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Erech:
It will call the mountains

The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Eridu:
It will call the temples
The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Erech:
It will call the mountains

An empty void will always enlarge itself
It stretches from the nether waters inside
As the chaos lives again: vapors condense
Ushum-Gal allots the beasts to the chantry


2. Night Fire Canonization


Remember!
Remember the drift of the night's fire?
Where the flames run around with desire
Blazes spread to the fore charring the foe
Granting the competence and burning all

The headmaster of magicians is
The serpent-king and the slayer
The possessor of the torches speaks
To the night with desire

The night's fire dances to a song of fall and wonder
The sultry weapon that calls you here now

The majesty is the power
Which corrupts the offspring (the paltry)
That shall never transpire
And always be denied
That shall never transpire
And always be denied (be declined)

The sun is sable
The moon is weeping
The planets are failing
As the earth starts to shake
The flames look secure
Within all the chaos
The fire sounds safe
Like a voice from the sky

The keys to hereafter
The flaxen-crimson embers
The symbols and the signals of
Destruction and withering
A night's fire is
The portrait of what was
Of what is
Of what is to come

So we shall singe them and
We shall burn them and
We will destroy them to
Remember the pith of the night's fire

The night's fire torches hatred to stone
As the sun turns cold
The stars fall fast and
The earth turns black


3. Amy

Many became the victim of the hunt
and attack
Inside the Order was a ruse for the fall
A greater key was used to open the portals
Afterwards, mages were allocated
underneath

He practiced his knacks and skills of trickery
Most malicious, he became revolting
Spirits were locked inside the mirrored vestibule
The Circle was ambushed by cornered, lined frontiers
Grabbing a staff, he waited for the practical
Dressed in the robe, he adjured the Circle
(Faultless seal, a greater key, ascendancy)

"O' Amy, you're the foremost of sphere and space"
"O' Amy, you're the foremost of fortune and splendour"

He saw and aloof principle as one being
Most sharp-eyed, he watched day transfigure
to the night (from the fire, combustion)

The mages self-sustained the beckon (summoning)
Studying bleak matter tied to obscured strings
A morph-genetic field of imps disturbed then
And the lesson was a ruse for the fall (combustion, ascendancy)


4. Nunbarshegunu

The old woman of Nippur
Instructs Ninlil to walk the banks of Idnunbirdu
She thrusts he magic (k)
To harvest the mind of the great
mountain-lord Enlil

The bright-eyed king will fall to your anguish
His soul lures the hexagonal room
He who decrees fates - his spirit is caught
His soul lured to the hexagonal room

Nunbarshegunu
A silk veil strewn over you
Your face is the cosmos
You hide it in shame

The lord of fates enthralled
He's bound to Ninlil

The lord of fates enthralled
He's bound to Ninlil
Your daughter, your weapon
You want to be the cosmos!

No shame, no limits
Mother of Ninlil acts
Lord of the fates deluded
To Kurnugi, Enlil is cast
Sin is conceived in the monarchy of death
The dynasty persists: the lunar god comes
to life!

Nunbarshegunu
A silk veil strewn over you
Your face is the cosmos
You hide it in shame


5. 13 Globes

Within upheaval
I am filed between them
A dark cloud: evident
Apparent: parasite-hoards

Contained by ancient tongues
Aghast in aspect
On momentous days

Of the sea and the secrets
The crux: "The Primeval Source"
In the planes of the shining lodes

Temple in the earth
A beacon of fire
A shrine for Eridu

The moon's bright trace
A pathway to your vault
Your spell is close
Its light holds a face

The Sun still sleeps
While the ancient ones return

Here stands the mighty chantry
Inlaid with black-blue lapis
You're seized by the Ushum-Gal
Enclosed in Girra's Temple
Sirrush is flying over
Storming over Neti's gates
Ea awaits your arrival
Inside...

The seeds have been planted
A long, long time ago
Early, utopian visions
You can only fantasize
One abyss: one temple
One mind: one design
In course of the setting Sun
You can only realize

Bashmu!
Sirrush! Ea!
Narr Marratu!

Thousand after thousand
The years of tradition linger
For the wisdom of magic(k)

Servants of the arcane order
The hypnotized beings
Can you commemorate?
The burden of ignorance

Clad in robes imprinted with spells
Regress time - degenerate
Founders of mankind,
Come lay your claim
Revert - Annunaki
Those of the void will re-enter
Clad in robes imprinted with spells
Regress time - degenerate
Founders of mankind...
Regress time - Regress time
Those of the void have re-entered!


11. Sceptre Command

Namtar, you're the Hyle of plague-ness
A watchman: bound and bound
My staff is the answer (for elucidation)

We shall not climb to the origin of elements
We must examine the base of Gudua

In order to harvest a benthos existence
I call upon the backing of Gugalanna

I paint the bow at the gold crown
Three arrows spear the heart of the staff
The placement of Mars must be equal
Enrapture within Sceptre Command!

The Cylinder seal projects the spell of triangular silhouettes of Irra
Hear me, Namtar

Descending by the stages
Gugalanna

Circules of this great dwelling
Gugalanna
O' breathing, flowing orb - you're in place
O' formless, lifeless mock - your gray place

THOSE BELOW...
FIRST ORDER!

I paint the bow at the gold crown
Three arrows spear the heart of the staff
The placement of Mars must be equal
Enrapture within Sceptre Command!

The Cylinder seal projects the spell of triangular silhouettes of Irra
Hear me, Namtar

Descending by the stages
Gugalanna

Circules of this great dwelling
Gugalanna
O' breathing, flowing orb - you're in place
O' formless, lifeless mock - your gray place

Thank you, O' Great Ones
Now, Kuta's repressed
My solar cantrip...
My fourteen afreets...
Anon, Gudua's placed

[Narrator:]
Three embraced each other
Namtar, Nergal and Mars
The truncheon gripped the light
Command - the bolts were shot


12. Ye Uttuku Spells

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

At nightfall, burgundy eyes arise
Beginning of the cosmic dances
Surrealistic, the serpent's command
Ugallu, obey the magus' rule

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

A frenzied rupture opens the stone
Out pours the beam and the shaft of light
Point it straight to the mountain's zenith
Ye Utukku awake, Utukku

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

Unrestrained, the light razes the night
Savage, causer of the mystical
Bring the Ginyaatlie of lava
Achieve theory from the mythical

Nisir - Tedloonetaa of salvation
Nisir - Mountain of elevation
Kukhwa - Burn over the dome
Ye Utukku awake, ye Absu rage

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

Abzu

1. Earth Ripper


1st Verse
Invoking frequently, formless fires altered states 
The Sun’s flares drenched the land beyond the seas (stars abide not) 
Celestial disturbance caused sweeping climate changes 
The dryness, pestilence was firstly observed by Ea 

Chorus 
The Earth ripped 
Concords were lost 
The Earth cleaved 
Distress was fostered 
The Earth wrenched 
Closing rived skies 
The Earth cracked 
Life and death vacuumed 

All Time crushed back into unblest everlastingness 
The Plenum’s overwhelmed by the sphere’s desolation 
Periapts and symbols warn of an impending spate 
All of Anunnaki fled in broad trepidation 

Repeat Chorus

3rd Verse
There is no hope in preserving
The globe’s swollen from the crumbling
It’s distended and withdrawing

Repeat 3rd Verse

Bridge
From the confines of space, the terrain collapsed… 
Hath passed, golden twilight dropped before faces 

Repeat Bridge

Repeat 1st Verse

Repeat Chorus 
The Earth ripped 
Concords were lost 
The Earth cleaved 
Distress was fostered 
The Earth wrenched 
Closing rived skies 
The Earth cracked… 


2. Circles Of The Oath


1st Verse
I stand in the center of the summit sphere 
I wait for the sound of the clouted bell – the warning sign 

This vagueness has not been named, 
Yet I see hands which testify the vow 
Exposing the uncalled, unknown and unsettled 

My destinies marked!

Chorus
I confirm vigor of the Wise by stealth
With this spell, non-foul, creating combustion
I form the glow 
Of the Oath, circles are blood and birth renewed
How keen the free star prevails – a strike of thrust
I forever reach 

I seek doubled chains of Orgia’s durableness!

Repeat Chorus

I’m told by the garlanded that Atu and Tiphareth… 
I’m told by the conquering they remain introducing: 

The mentors of the Above 
The forgers that speak Below 
The savants of the Numbers 
The solders of the Circuits 

Decree 
I’M
AEONS TENABLE 
MARK MY WORDS
OF THE OATH
SEVEN

I’M 
TREASURES TO THE STONE
HEAR MY LEAD
IN THE OATH
SEVEN

Repeat Decree
Repeat 1st Verse
 


3. Abraxas Connexus


Vitriol = Abraxas = Xnoubis = Meithras
Visita = Sun = Heart = Gold
Interiora = Moon = Brow = Silver
Terrae = Mercury = Crown = Mercury
Rectificando = Jupiter = Navel = Tin
Invenies = Mars = Sacral = Iron
Occultum = Venus = Throat = Copper
Lapidem = Saturn = Base = Lead


By the sevenfold process, V.I.T.R.I.O.L reigns
No one can distress its southern point
By the evidence, nature delivered two
No one can disrupt their dual symmetry

Stare towards the heart – stare at the stone
Your eye unveiled – your nucleus
Writhe on the mace – skim on the throne
Your vessel sealed – your inmost light

They are Mercurial, active, both close at hand
It is balance of the hidden stone
One must never know more than the other
It is of knowledge: Prima Materia

Chorus
Saturn follows lead – ABRAXAS of draught
Eye of Asaru
Seventh is the root – Vitriolistic base
The triad and the position of Stone
Saturn follows lead – ABRAXAS of draught
Seed of Asaru
Seventh is the root – Vitriolistic base
The formulary of Tria Prima

Heart of bullion – the golden sun
The silver moon with distinct brow
Crown of the crown – thee – Mercury
Jupiter’s tin knifed in navel
Ironed by the rouge, sacral Mars
Throat of Venus glazed with copper

Repeat Chorus


4. Skrying In The Spirit Vision


East
Invoking: the breaking forth of the light
Instruments: forms of the coarse flames

Aeons of a bornless beyond: 
Listen to the voice of Angle! 
Devotion
Ever-burning lamps

West
Traveling: the Radix of vibration
Projections: in gale of the Ninth

Stirs of the invisible
Feel four-hundred fifty six winds! 
Metatron
The wisdom of the breath

North
Emerging: advent of the visible
Conjectures: adventures into the chasm

Limpid with the brilliance below
Drenched and sodden: inundating 
Quadrangle
An excess: abundance

Servants of thunder, they all deliver 
Pulling together, all subquadrants fail 

South (Dominated) 
The speech in silence sounds the Third Angle 
Drawn into naught, the points are now quashed

Hath passed and pure gold, the Lion of the Light appears before the faces of Aethyrs

Chorus 
Folk of fear will drive 
Astral planes toward the fade of age
Time is thronged by time
Skrying in the spirit vision

Decree 
OODIORG 
He of fire and justice
DOANZIN 
He who names the waters
GAHTZA 
HOATH 

Repeat Chorus


5. Ontologically, It Became Time & Space


Yawning benthos came first, terra firma, next Desire 
Erebus of old Night, Day of Aethyr 
Neither of these were Being, reality, nor Non-being 
Perdurability, neither of death 

Chorus
The Wanderers of the Waste infested plateaus: 
Time and Space 
Then, Sirius prearranged calendars of lone 
Continuum 

Astral sketch was not self-incandescent 
Its light was produced by rays of the Sun 
Eyeless void felt generations of heat 
The first seed of Mind – The Light of the South 
Breath by itself 
Without wind, pyramids…
Concentrated 
Cyclic flux, triangles… 
Air nor Earth nor were protected as of yet. 
The water was not deep, yet unfathomable 
Nonentity occurred 

Darkness swathed in darkness: unmanifestation 

Decree 
CHAOS NEVER DIES 
SOTHIS HIDES BEYOND THE AEON 
LOCKED FOREVER 
UNFALTERING 

The Sun behind the Sun spawns twin aspects of tide 

Up, down was beginning to frame itself 
Casters of the second seed gained control. (of the Deep) 
Energy was beneath - impulse above. 

Repeat Chorus

  • B. A Myriad Of Portals

  • C. Third Tablet

  • D. Warren Of Imhullu

  • E. The Waters - The Denizens

  • F. E-A (Reprise) 


A
I sought after gold, but I found it not 
My rules are found by the Conclave of Ur
I am the coxswain, as I shall valiantly face the dangers
With my chariot, I am declared!

Chorus x2
I discover its foundations require cavernous mining in the primal basis
Enlil exhumes my unearthing and makes a sudden decision after Anu arrives

Chorus II x2
SHAR SHADI IL ENLIL ANA KAKKAB SHU GI IKABBI

B
You are falling into the squalls
Spirit fills itself with the tint of the teaching
Messengers of Namtar drink from your toxic well
And sink in the flood of black miasma - drunkenness

Chorus
You are neither male nor female
Don’t break the pledge of the zephyr
The broad corrals, high enclosures…
A myriad of portals
Evil it is: Nanna is nigh
Tear the wives from embrace of man
Snatch the child from knees of mothers
Opening the flaps of time

Bridge
SEVEN, YOU ARE IN MIDST OF THE DEEP
MA.GUR.UR.NU.AB.ZU

Silence is the slaughter and the seal is the crown
On sacramental grounds, feign as creatures of the Light

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Bridge


And the body of the night turned out in daylight to be yours
Order and kindness don’t exist like a wing without a bird
And the body of the night turned out in daylight to be yours
Order and kindness don’t exist like a tongue without a mouth…
A MYRIAD OF PORTALS

C
1st Verse
At last, my slog is Home to the Tides
Tablet of Fate obtained
As once, my trek is deftly guided
Blue-hued Antu: our way

The Water Thruster
The Tester’s Sunbeam
The Giant Kishar

Tablet of Fate attained

The Hammered Bracelet
Deleted Weapons
A Lucid Pathway

To all who assemble,
My words of command are in the hands of Bane
To all who assemble,
My words of command are in the hands of Bane

Repeat 1st Verse

D
Now that I have your face by heart, 
I look more at your features being the First
You are the perturbing tempest and the worst of all
Inrush!

Chorus
Gathering speed as it blows
- O’ Imhullu
To the Abzu, you will follow
Scowl of Waters

Now that I have your voice by heart,
I glance more at your features being the Fourth
You are the distressing Shibbu and the worst of all
Indraft!

Repeat Chorus

Now that I have your heart by heart…

1. Amenta: Accelerando: Azyn including Hierophantasmal Expounder

[Colin-Tocquaine/Givens/Gonzalez] {3:46}
 

Verse I

Cloud–compelling, slit in twain! Sharpening the stone! He is the catalyst Octinomos

Caduceus, staff in hand! Hypermnesia! Two adders: one white and one black

Grade of logos, hark in twain! Echoing the words! He is the mirage of the Treble Will

Silver tippet, switch in head, Cataplexia! Double quills: one dull and one sharp

     

Verse II

His necrophageous force appears, in the temper, under a certain guise:

His meritorious exposé bares the wisdom over a murky bize

 

Verse III

Uttermost, unity proves the gemmed azure is naked

He outshines with expenditures of energies

Futhermost, amity veils his serpent-soul divided

He misshapes back to indrawn criticality  

 

Chorus I

Entereth between the myth

Uttereth betwixt the mouth

Exiteth between the Ma’at

I am the Phantasmal Expounder

Exiteth between the naught

Uttereth betwixt the night

Entereth between the Nox

I am the Hierophant Agitator

 

Verse IV

Over certain guises, in fits of ire, his mortification force appears 

The stélé of his exposé

 

Verse V

Uttermost, unity proves the gemmed azure is naked  

He misshapes back to indrawn criticality 

 

Chorus II

Entereth between the Beth

(And the star of Set)

Uttereth betwixt Ma’at

(O’ Sirius)

Exiteth between the Moth

(The falling Sothis)

I am Hierophantasmal

 

Conclusion

Over certain guises, the force appears

2. Esoterically Excoriating The Exoteric

[Dorian/Givens/Williamson] {4:36}

 

Verse I
By the power of the sacred dreaming, and, within the conclaves

The lights of the body are the eyes; therefore, they are glimmering

 

Elision/Supposition I
Extrication from the thralldom


Verse II 

Oily splashes lurking, lapping and licking the rotten timbers of the jetty  

Faint green spirals of froth coiling upward on the pillars,

While the hallmark traces the fumes of a spasm awakening

 

Chorus

Nightmare in the eyes intensify

They wax, increase and they outshine

And still those slippery steps usher down
Down + down = deeper down

Chimera silhouettes the sky: encroaching the scum–laden tide

 

Verse III

Vapours of paradise, oblique and against the light

The diagonal reaches the pike, yet the parapet’s glacis height

Repeat Chorus 

Repeat Verse III

 

Verse IV  

Infinite billowing

Unlock the brightness it locks

In-betweeness gathers

Casting off disembodied emanations

Frenzy of distraction

Radiance covers flesh

 

Verse V            

Darkening to a silhouette against the pallid, azure sky

The brazen moulding broke away revealing a slab of the squirming worms

 

Elision/Supposition II

The blare of diffidence is also the voice of Apsû

No gulf too wide, no cleft too deep, flung into lows and goaded onto highs

Elision/Supposition III

No gulch too vast, no rift too broad, churns into depths and narced onto heights

 

Elision/Supposition IV

Unctuous waters, turbid with dreams degenerate the last baluster

 

Elision/Supposition V

The blare of diffidence is also the voice of Apsû

 

Repeat Verse II 

Repeat Chorus

3. Quasaric Pestilence

[Eriksen/Givens/Gonzalez] {3:29}

 

Prologue

Thus dreamt – I brought fresh fevers from the skies to disguise

I’ve known the secret door opening the “Outside” within the other side

Verse I

Thus hallucinated – I was the glare of the red flame

I knew, in presence, I was the Khab within the fervid Khu

Bridge I

Ra–Hoor–Khuit = Current

Verse II

Grappled the East at dawn (Ra)  

Crowned art self with splendour of the unremembered

Fronted the South at noon (Ahathoor)  

Honoured with the grandeur of the undetected  

Verse III

The hawk–headed fey was within the skull of the man

I waxed the purple paean into spatial gateways: an accolade

Ophidian’s flux was made from aged shells

I jinxed an old sweetness, reddish red, to make the grade

 

Chorus

Tejolingam

Cingulam

Intricate

Deflagrate The Spectres Of The Legion Blessed                 

Equinox 

Noumenon 

Exasperate The Shining Ones Of The Pestilence

Bridge II

Nod to thee, o' mighty Kephra! The Sixtystone

Verse IV

Thus delirious – I was the word of the Zainion  

I knew, in absence, I was the glyph within the fourfold Deep

Epilogue

Thus slept – I brought malady from the skies to disguise

There was a secret door opening the “Inside” within the other side

Bridge III

Current of Ma’at = Aum Ha

Verse V

Marked by the star from Ixaxaar's lunar womb  

I was the inhaled speaker robed with the royal, lion's skin
Aditi, and unity, of Mentu’s force   

Known to Lam, with scents and tastes, wrapped in cloth

Chorus II

Tejolingam   

Cingulam

Intricate

Deflagrate The Spectres Of The Legion Blessed                    

Equinox 

Noumenon

4. Mirroracles

[Friedman/Givens/Gonzalez] {3:57}


Verse I

Reflecting initiations of a new aeon

Vibrantly, the whole planet must be bathed in blood

Echoing instigations to the pith of mien

Garishly, the sixth sphere must be…    

Pre–Chorus

Refulgent < Luminous > Effulgent  

Chorus

Oracles are victories of the vision

Visions of the susurrant  

Susurrant chanting towards the science  

Sciences of Hod’s gumption

Tiphareth and the Daäthian beyond  

Beyond the zone of Yesod

Mirroracles are victories of the vision

O’ Lux–Nox: Gnosis: Ojas  

 

Verse II

Ratiocination of the Kalas, I behold myself in crevasse  

Existential Manichaeism, I meet myself in otherness

Verse III

The following, specious eiszeits are mauve, grey, black and dazzling white

Each represents light, darkness and the two twilights of shade and mist

Verse IV

They annihilate contingency: routing values, forms and sanity

They trample into nihility like a millipede’s thousandth footstep

Verse V

The mass of the mirror introduces something lowering, fratricidal and tornadic

The dazzling white light gleams like a mass of maggots: it passes with a touch of the spiritual directive

Repeat Pre–Chorus

Repeat Chorus

5. In–Betweeness Gateway Commuters
[Dorian/Givens/Williamson] {5:26}

Prologue
The following formality was the formulae of the wayfaring

Verse I
Founder of the Zonei is the wanderer
Ašimbabbar’s the rank and his seal is first
He bears a staff of lapis–lazuli
Aedo Ooddo
He balances on the trapeze of tides
Ma–ion Marma
As the new moon appears above cloud–mottled skies,
He lauds and celebrates with a gaul–headed masque
Nanna jubilates the wrenching sound of screams
The parchment stamp is wrapped in a square of the finest silk,
Yet decay
He fosters a crown of sixty–six horns
Vide Supra
His essence is of quicksilver
As the inner planet outlines mould–mandalas,
He swoops with the vulture upon spewed carrion:
An interchangeability of the void–forms and their signs

Verse II
Be exorcised (by Nergal’s continuum)
The sole temper (who dwelt in the Cutha)
Be ostracized (by Queen Ereškigal)
O’ Sultana ('twixt stars twin unto sight)
Be unrealized (by Ningišzida’s asp)
The Krone–Bearer (of the intersection)
Be ossified (by Namtar and the eye)
O’ Nagallu (he of the grand array)
Omit the glyphs, of totality, in between the automatic augury

 

Verse III
Sin flaunts epizeuxis

He brays nocturnal grift

He hauls vast petulance

Sin greets Nychthemeron

No ray of sunlight will strike the seal

No flare of sunlight should strike the stamp

Lest its control be rendered

 

Verse IV

Namrasit

He steers tautology

He proves pleonasm

Sin meets Nychthemeron

All beams of moonlight shall strike the seal

All shafts of moonlight should strike the stamp

Lest its command be modeled

A “Rebus Sensation” forever links in the “Swapna Dance”

 

Verse V
Hušbisa, the steward, rings a major hand bell, which tantalizes the pre–abyssal syndrome
Šaršarbid, the butcher, forms a terror congress that intimidates the pre–abyssal syndrome
Ètana, the vizier, allows the eagle to eat the serpent’s children = pre–abyssal syndrome

 

Verse VI
The Deep Ones had steered Inanna once

The chanting and the glugging of sluggish water combined to contrive twice

The duskiness of the swampland was redolent of mephitic vapours: triplicate

Permutational Vectors

Non–Modality Being

Then, the gateways, in–between, became settled within ancient covenants 


Epilogue
“Én–du–gu ka–ga ḫé–gál –

Šìr–gu géštu–ge na–an–dib–bé.

Gu–kur silim–éš du–ga–gá–kam,

Inim ap–sû–ke mu–ši–gá–gá–a–àm.”

 

Interpretation

“My songs: let them be in your mouths – 

My hymns from the knowledge may not fade away.

The objective of my might is praised,

And the words, which Apsû has made, will be available to me.”

O’ coiled, constricted and chosen

O’ tortured, twisted and twined

O’ lecher, anfractuous and sinuous

Alarmed

Jupiter

In

Capricornus

Chorus II

Coiled, constricted and chosen

Tortured, twisted and twined

O’ serpent, anfractuous, sinuous and circuitous

 

Verse I

Flash forward on the bema’s fire

Fizzling once: hissing thrice: concinnity

 

Verse II

Bind the charmer

Mingle in the mocking measure and bind the ethos in the tether

Sound the sleeper

Be deference, deity and immortality   

Scale the armour

Susurration, faint words and the curved are inferred
The death is the naming of that name

 

Repeat Chorus I

Repeat Bridge

 

Conclusion 

The bifurcated circles are within the lemniscate

7. Dedicated To Thoth, But Azathoth Wasn’t Listening (A Necroloquy)

[Givens/Gonzalez] {3:28}
 

Verse I

Hence, Azathoth was not listening, so this is dedicated to Thoth

Eighteen reversed is the number to the Seat of Set or the Stone

“No turning back,” comports the leap, of the Copula Formula

Pre–Chorus

Both idols are enshrined within the nucleus,

But the Starry Wisdom Sect is nowhere to be found

 

Verse II

Hence, Azathoth was not listening, so this is dedicated to Thoth

The eighty-first instauration is the knurl to a diamond  

“Par excellence,” with plate and reed, connects the ensorcellment

 

Chorus

They share the Hexecontalithos Apotropaism linked to Khem,

But one’s blind whilst the other’s possessing prolific thaumaturgy 

Bridge

Agents of the Ubbo Sathla: centralized

They function in the Ibt Al Ghauzi: hypnotized

Two hidden doors to their own source: forgotten

They emerge from swamp quagmires: begotten

 

Verse III

Hence, Azathoth was not listening, so this is dedicated to Thoth

Eighteen revised is the secant of Taphthartharath

“Shut up and bound,” it is declared, Shiva’s shava without skakti

 

Repeat Chorus x2

8. Caliginous Whorl
[Givens/Gonzalez/Williamson] {3:22}

Verse I
Thee I evoke, the one
Thee I entreat, the range
Thee, that didst create the shrill stridulation
Thee I raise Ani – Ego
Thee, that didst devise the dextrorotation
Thee, that didst open the quashing ogle

Verse II
Thou art Malkunofat: the lead of all registers
Thou hast the excrement between the just and unjust
Thou art the hulking plyies: abode of the Deep Ones
Thou hast the mesial shell betwixt the grim and the chrome

Chorus
In the stance of thee is the flesh self–containing
Nucleus of the verisimilitude is impure
Habitat Rancor – The Caliginous Whorl

Verse III
Hear thou me, for I am compelling
Hear thou me, for I am leering
Hear thou me, for I skim the spasm of the serpent’s tongue
Here I raise Ayin – Trance – Ego – Vision
Hear thou me, for I wear the mer–masque of practice
Here I raise Khep–Ra – Basque – Apparition

Verse IV
This is the XXIII: the hiss of the Hanging Man
This is the congenital between the coition

Repeat Chorus

Verse V
Immoral Oracle
Exasperating aspirant engrosses me
Skyring
I am He
Casting
I am He
Tracing
I am He
Binding
I am He
Probing
I am He
Querying
I am He
Tinging
I am He
Citing
I am He
Skyring
I am He

 

Verse VI
A circumambulation, yet the levorotation hull returns to its guises
(Then, dematerializes)

Repeat Verse II (Abridged)
Thou art Malkunofat: the lead of all registers
Thou hast the excrement between the just and unjust

Repeat Chorus (Abridged)
The Caliginous Whorl

9. The Coagulating Respite
[Dorian/Givens/Williamson] {2:44}

 

Chorus I

I Am Unicursal Menstruum: Prima Materia

Quintessential Acth Vel – Azoth: An Anima

 

Verse I

Upon the triangulum and atop the tacks of Ararita,
I go and becomest the yare, Lapidem Inaugurator

By the grand Arcanum of the Hexagrammaton,

I give flesh and feeling, carnality, unto Tiphareth

I am the acid that eats, that gnaws into the steel, unto the soul of Sol

 

Bridge I

From calcination, the welkin hatches the williwaws now

 

Verse II

I fill the Hexalphas with the inmost oils of V.I.T.R.I.O.L

Through the means of operation and omneity,

Permutation is two and the one is my idiosyncrasy   

I am the helical gust, which clambers up the steep of time

 

Bridge II

From calcination, the welkin propagates the williwaws    

To coagulation, I find amity and balance: it is within the hidden stone  

Chorus II

White Agglutination: Adeptus Coquetting (The Within)

Incorruptible Passion–Play: Hovering (The Within + The Without)  

 

Post–Bridge

In Kether, all is a festinated impulse

And with Daäth, the hatch between pure impulse and subtle phenomenon is formed (The Within)

Yesod dominates and Tiphareth compensates the Notariqon (Ibid) while Malkuth stroves

It is within the hidden stone

10.  Prana: Therion: Akasha

[Dorian/Eriksen/Givens/Gonzalez] {2:47}


Verse I

As I advance to the East plane, I am now borne on these blue wings blazing

I will satisfy Ararita once my prayer tongue licks the scaling triangle  

 

Chorus I

Lapis–Lazuli and the lambent flames are the solvents of two

I shall return to the Centre, and so to the Centre of All

Prana and the immemorial splendour proceed to arise,

Yet the Sapphire of the Star is bovine, there is no light in sight – not in the shrine

 

Verse II

In the West, Microprosopus connects

As reconciler, I am the one who arbitrates between the ingeniums   

 

Chorus II

Lastly, at Midnight, let me greet the Sun facing front (fronts the sign of his grade)

Let me feel the gibe of the diapason

Gleam in the skies where the chained ones tremble and elope (hope for the Akasha)

Let me brace the luminescence of the crest  

 

Bridge I

Roars from Shedu lead me anon to the central summit of the whispering, Caduceus Order

This writ prepares myself to face the deplorable awe of the Abyss, which lies between Therion and Babalon

 

Verse III

Teach me to know purgatory, agony, yet to challenge that destiny

11. Tantrums Of Azag–Kkû

[Dorian/Eriksen/Givens/Williamson] {3:02}

 

Chorus
Azag–Kkû’s tempest carried forth spume

In those days, he gashed the temporal assembly

His amok mission delivered the di’u–disease

On middays, he bathed the welkin from blue to red

 

Verse I

Azag–Kkû Kima Mili Naru Ishup
The Azag–Kkû–daemon overwhelmed the people like the flood of a river
 

Repeat Chorus

 

Verse II

He trilled and whirled death on the orb like a storm

“Truculent Mehû!” cried the sietch (in essence, a tornado)

Amalgamated sag–gig entered their minds

                                     

Verse III

As the land–people were indisposed with the šanadûm–jaundice,
The spuming fardel continued to broadcast malaise

 

Bridge

Tantrums of Azag–Kkû: Di’u–Šuruppû

 

Verse IV

The incantations to repulse the acrimonious plaguer failed,

So the death–spirit continued to broadcast malaise

 

Repeat Bridge

 

Pre–Chorus  

The daemon has infected

The daemon has befouled

The daemon has defiled with maximum, absolute…flout

Repeat Chorus  

 

Post–Chorus
Amela Muttallika Kima Subati Iktatam

Post–Bridge

Tantrums of Azag–Kkû: Di’u–Šuruppû Šanadûm

Sacrament
Evoking The Turbulator
Provoking The Mantilla
Invoking The Atalaya

Verse I
Heat and expansion draws the air in red fire, (Southern Quadrangle)
As white djinns of the culminating mid–day guard the flaming sword
Cold, contracting wetness makes the blue sign, (West Sextet)
And the grey ghost assists the Adeptus (Graduum Montis)

 

Pre–Chorus
Vibrate Three Times, Gahoachma

 

Chorus

Odo Kikle Qaa Piap Piamoel Od Voanu

Post–Chorus
Zodakara Eka Zodakare Od Zodameranu

Verse II
Widdershins dissipate the morning light in the Eastern guise;
Therefore, (Parallelogram) the Red Philosophus grades the Zelator in feat
Black mages of the night, and watchtowers, (Antipode)
Rouse upon the totems and Pantacles (The Spectacles)

 

Pre–Chorus II
Vibrate Six Times, Onophis

Miscellaneous

 

Akhera Goiti – Akhera Beiti (One Black Opalith for Tomorrow) 


Between the sunset's bloodstained veil,

Thy horned prospect reflects on me.

 

The he-goat above – The she–goat below

Cried through beads of mirrored tears

It fills the air! – It fills the air!

An atmosphere that hath no key.

 

I'm disguised by the kindle of nite and I can fill your liquid, glass heart

Grasp your cold–shaded breath and whisper the sign of the hidden stone

I'm in the circle and I am the shell that granted you the horns of AllBegetter

A fixed, starless vision and a sullen fabrication cursed the Sun of which our lustful ways are performed.

 

Bridge

Half of me is all of her

Hath no shower; hath no sol

Half of me is all of her

Hath no shower; hath no sol

Half of me is all of her

Hath no shower; hath no sol

 

Repeat Bridge

 

Chorus

Akhera–goiti

Akhera–beiti

Fantasies I realized

Dance of thorns, I thrive

For below the great abyss is a virtue contained in itself.

Repeat Chorus

"We shall eagerly expect one black opalith for tomorrow."

The Gold Torques Of Uláid

“I see you slippin’ away from my sight.
My vision is dwindling, it can’t be the night?”
The chivalrous dragoons race toward the line.
They bring crocks of barley, some honey, and wine.
“I am the Red Knight that charges with might!
I soar like a grey hawk I’ve seen in take-flight!”
The birds of prey land on the bleak river forks.
In their beaks, gripping, are three bloody torques.

It’s sad to remember those sickening years
that shed the tears – TORQUES OF GOLD
A dream of Earth, the dream of Seas,
we rode with spears – TORQUES OF GOLD
We brace ‘em bold – TORQUES OF GOLD
We’re wise, not old – TORQUES OF GOLD

The grey hawks flew in the mild, Southern wind.
The champions of the Red Branch Cycle defend.
“I’m Ross The Red of Ulaidh; I’ve never failed!
I’m the son, father’s the High King; we prevailed!
He saw you slippin’ away from his eyes.
His sight returned, as the night filled with lies.
“I weigh anchor hoist, ocean deep, then set sail.
I search for new Earth, Southern wind, and the gale.

WE’VE BEEN TOLD
YOUR PRIDE WAS SOLD,
SO FACE THE BOLD....
STRIKE!

Proclamation

FAR
...FROM HOME,
WE’RE
...SO FAR.

Hall Of The Masters

YOU HAVE SWIFTLY DISEMBARKED AT THE PASS
You smeared torment amongst all stocks of life
You, the spate, are ghastly for the decayed

You littered while ages past (in)
Mirage of conclave souls
You reverberated mirrors –
Figment of ancient Throk
You, tutor of the vaults, are the
Rash of forbidden forms

You have walked amidst the stars (in)
Glares of pewters
You have prepared
Gates at the Gulf
You, increaser of the pace, are
The Master of time dimensions

Bridge
Supplication of the dream
Granting haleness to the furtive light brigade
Abomination of the bond
Demolishing life's passing cycles in the...
HALL OF THE...

Bleeders will rise from the brume of R'lyeh
Victors will strike in a quicksilver sweat

You gnawed swiftly with scornful bite –
A terror of advent
You have illuminated three,
Perdu mazes
You, increaser of the pace, are
The Master of time dimensions

You stain the sphere of scream and screech
The Master of form and foulness

Chorus
Casting mantles of flesh of outward souls
Charms are torn by the injurious
Doom is at hand from an exposing door
Spawns have torn through the trustfulness
