lyrics

ascend toward the golden light
exist beyond the bounds of life
lick your lips with the liars tongue
and slit your throat to drink the blood
gnash your teeth into the flesh
for their meat is the holy bread

the cold steel of night
its frost bitten blade
carves into the virgin skull
and we shall speak truth nevermore
the embers glow behind our backs
as gold turns to black

bitten by the snake infected with the venom
the poison that an apparent choice is given
but appearances sustain the breadth of the world
appearances sustain the divine word
that choice is given
the tree of life of all its fruit should be barren
but in this age untouched it lies old and rotten
the complacent race of man will soon be forgotten

they press their teeth into each others flesh
while blood drips from their blackened lips
and over serpent tongues down the throats of the willing
the fruit is rotting in the sun
as we all bow to man made gods
hell is the pit of despair found in holy houses

defiled words spit forth
from the mouths of the pestilent flies of discord
defy the essence of humanity
the vultures circle in the sky
as mankind slowly starts to die
the rebirth of this world
soon is begotten

infected by the serpents bite
the madness feeds on brittle minds
condemned sentenced to this life
ascend towards the endless night

ascend
