Track Name: Serpent Savior
behold the serpent savior, open your hands
break your neck, break your neck, take in as much as you can
we were born god damned, from the bastards of regression until

we’re all blind

our deep and empty orbits are filled with his gifts
our silent praise of the old ones fills the cavern

we're all blind

chained to the altar of the dweller
there is no sky, no hope, no prayer
buried beneath the great red sea
the blind ones call their savior

we’re all blind

here before the dweller
there is no terror in my heart
we are now one
the vessel is now filled

we’re all blind

the dweller is summoned
your servant forever

for all time

take my eyes so that I may see
take my voice so that I may know the truth
Track Name: Rapture of the Deep
lost in a cold and longing stare
flesh crawling from your bones
the ground is beckoning below
all you would have to do is take one step forward and let go

jump

you have the right to die
you have the power to take your own life

your heart is dead and frozen
you testify
steer your car into traffic
is the reply
you do not want to go to endless sleep
the darkness finds a way
into your mind it creeps

rapture of the deep
call of the void (L’appel du vide)

kill yourself
Track Name: Pyramid of the Sea
the abyssal tomb rises from beneath the waves
slowly reaching its zenith
what man has uncovered should have remained buried
hidden for all time

the old god rises
the endtime is nigh

three bloated faces of pestilence
each one made in our own broken image

apocalyptic prophecies once foretold now come true

the pyramid of the sea is torn asunder
as its prisoner is released
arms spread wide, he casts down the stones that once held him

fire hurled
as the cattle spread in panic

the old god rises
the endtime is nigh

his mouths filled with tongues
each tongue made of eyes
the all seeing demon is reborn
the great and terrible god is made anew

we must unmake the world
we must destroy all that we’ve created
Track Name: Snake Oil
heed not the words of the snake oil man
heed not the lies of the snake oil man

your guilt
his elixirs will cure
your sorrow
masked by his poison
cryptic words conjuring ancient fear
dark oblivion is his greatest weapon

hang him from the highest branch
keep him close to his savior

hang him from the highest branch
try reaching out to your god
sew his lips so he may not proclaim
blasphemous prophecies of the word made flesh

heed not the words of the snake oil man
heed not the lies
serpent and lamb are one in the same
heed not the lies
Track Name: The Key, the Gate, the Light
there is no light in this endless purgatory
we are alone, forgotten
only empty skies remain

there is no answer from on high, only empty skies
our pleas ring out empty and ignored
we are alone

there is no answer from on high, only empty skies
our pleas ring out empty and ignored
have we been forsaken?

wear now this mask waxen and foul
the robe that hides all flesh and bone
gaping maws surround me
beckoning me forward into darkness

that which is eternal can never be unseen

there is no light

the black goat of the woods
the wretched herald of he who is eternal
beyond all knowing, beyond all time
(her thousand young are) waiting
rending flesh from bone
in an unholy communion

I have been chosen as the temple
I am the key, the gate, the light
the face and the hands of the messenger greet me
frozen in time eternal

I have been chosen
Track Name: Innkeeper
doctor holmes, what have you done?
proclaim your madness
proclaim your genius
doctor, what have you done?

these twisted halls shall be our doom
these blackened walls death's holy womb
city of white, castle of death
cower in fear, take your last breath

these twisted halls shall be our doom
these blackened walls death's holy womb

the gas, unbearable fume
snaking through pipes, filling our lungs, blinding our eyes
the doctor enters the room
here to pretend, deceiving our hearts, clouding our minds
the corpse enters its tomb
blinding through fire
he is our captor, he is our god

he is our god

doctor, what have you done?
(your death is my masterpiece)
doctor, what have you done?
(I am the one within)
personify madness, personify genius
(through this, I will be your god)
doctor holmes, what have you done?
(through this, I will be eternal)

I will be eternal
