The Key, the Gate, the Light

lyrics

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
