lyrics

A drapery of rose perfumed sunrise
Enticed by the unruly dark mountain
To show wafer thin glimpses of light
The Closing chapters
Of a blood drenched Elegy

Where Evil lurked in crevice
Dwelled in corners, hid in cracks
Praying, prey sniffing for fear
And a window to attack

On these steep slopes
Of tephra tumbling crumbling milestone
Through the shrouded damps
Of this sulfur scented succubus he arose
Pyrrhic victor for the Furies feast
As Thanatos devoured the Demon
Which could not negate
Such an innate sense of power and purpose

Purity repulsing the weakness of flesh
He encountered reason
Defying ill-fated treason
He was struggling for rhyme
So as sunlight set on the shoulders
And boulders of Gaia
Her petrified torso shivered in fear
To the horror of His vulgar acts

Hephaestus, hear me!
Sweet Aphrodite’s harlotry has been avenged
I came down on him like Typhon
And his progeny of monstrous offspring
I hereby claim my prize
Black hearted hammersmith of the Gods
A Helmet, sword and shield
Delved from the fires of the Abyss

Beware, this is my Oath
This I swear: Vengeance is coming for you!
Your Mountain reign shall end
For I will claim what is rightfully mine

Beware, this is my Oath
This I swear: Vengeance is coming for you!
Your blood on my sword
Your head in my hand
Your lifeless carcass at my feet…

Blood…
Divine blood…
