How the mind of a man Can be swayed by the slight of hand Never once realized Witchery within the mind Do not pay any heed To these blurring hands There is nothing real In these shifting sands Magick all abound Of a lesser kind Only as you seek Will you surely find Will you surely find Hints of hidden signs Power from inside Rituals to divine Mesmerizing the passage of time With sciamachy Evoking the illusionary
In a rumored whisper from past days The world was said to burn in a fiery and sundering rage No mountain prisons could withhold Our doom broke loose, we saw the wings of dreaded fear unfold World breaker, come to deliver the final touch Beast fire, breath of flame bellowed a billowing gush Conqueror, first of it’s kind heralds the last of us World breaker, end of days As the fanning flames now kiss the sky The death incarnate one begins to close it’s tired eyes And as it spins, this planet burns A new made nesting place for the next extinction to occur
Draw Breath 04:16
Day to day, disguising lives. Living a lie behind jealous eyes. Can’t stay away, won’t fall behind, mustn’t accede to the fears and the fires Ohhh, when there’s nothing left (draw breath, draw breath, draw breath) Many miles yet to tread in the gloaming expanse (draw breath, draw breath, draw breath) When all feeling has fled (draw breath, draw breath, draw breath) Lest we fall, we must all look within and draw… Recall the glory of the mornings rise The birth of memories to blossom inside Elated to feel, excited to find Enamored and charged with renewed spark of life
I was born with a wolf’s desire With a serpent’s tongue and a darkened heart I have risen to ranks of wisdom As the silent hand of the shaded one Messenger and wanderer of worlds Harbinger, heralding death’s knell I am aide to the Lord Of Shadow Friend to hounds, the assassin saint Rifting portals lend me succor Instruments of death shall I create Son of silence, sent to sunder some Buried blades in a blink and then it’s done Go and summon your warrens of magick Do not hope for defense to sustain There have been many others before you Greater ones who by my hands were slain Messenger and wanderer of worlds Harbinger, heralding hood’s knell Son of silence, sent to sunder some Buried blades in a blink and then it’s….. done
White hot tails coruscate in jagged waves Raucous thunder clap resounding through the space ‘Take no prisoners’ was the message from the mage All are guilty here for their slight they must be made to pay Felled foes Brought low Death toll Fed crows Shackled to your banded brethren Sharing in the same demise A lightning fork between the eyes Elemental wounds lacerate the face Stench of smoldering flesh wafting from the pate Now our work is done as the message here was heard Be forewarned before uttering your next ill curse STRIKE!
Demons 04:06
Beings of foul desire Legends so dour and dire Beyond abysmal mire Wrath of a thousand fires A warlock seeks ascendancy Dominion over one and all A demon wishes to be free A bargaining to bring about the fall Request for power Demand of wealth A gift of knowledge In exchange for material realms Three wishes granted The gate unlocks With new attainment Comes the curse of knowing all is lost The evil ones have been set free The spell caster was made to watch As rivers of molten gold and fire Now cut across the land in deathly swaths Betrayal comes so naturally To demons from across the void It’s folly to believe these things And more to open up the door
Liliana 04:16
Forlorn, forgotten and forsaken The moors and swamps emit despair The pitch vale of the dark realms whisper of plague and sedition Evil swells in the deepest wells staining the land Life! For! Our! Liege! Swift victory, glory to Liliana! Die! For! The! Queen! Deaths royalty, all hail Liliana! Glinting scales illuminate from the torchlight glow Shades and souls hunt from down below, born of the shadow Demons rise from the portals provided by spells Avatars of the darkest arts guard her chain veil Her last kiss carries megrim and extirpation Her caress is of duress, distress and doom The dead and dying are residing in her legions of sprawling corruption Necromantic empress inspires command!
Brought up by the matron, Malice Holding onto sympathies Understandings of our history Are the very things that shape our fates All around these city walls The people speak their rhetoric of hate Resolute to his resolve His heart reserves no time to castigate Or strike them down, for he believes in the better of all kind His fight is fury, he walks in light Malice from concealed conspiracy Hunted down by where he came Overcoming every hardship Offered him a finer way
