Track Name: Gaze of Leviathan
Eyes of Leviathan

Portal to the void, door obsidian
entering the halls of obscenity
walls enscribed with the orb a of dark sun
echoes rituals from eternity
spiral downwards stairs in the undertow
sacred smoke in cracks of reality
whispers crawl in shadows of the world below
hidden temple on the far side of destiny

Hallways of the earth
the temples of old
Gaze of leviathan
Sentience- a world devoid of light

Demiurgal world creations
ancient lore of aeons faded
ethereal words in the fabric of the dark side
scrolls of time unveiled by insanity

There’s a stranger in the halls of the endless
Circles of unlife never been broken
take her alive, to the altar of the Huntress
Chant of the Crone once again will be spoken
Track Name: Beneath a Burning Sun
Beneath a burning sun

Horizons in disguise unveiling images celestial
intoxications by the essence Dionysian
Streams unconscious mind exhumated circle burials
blackened pilgrims walkers of oblivion

Beneath a burning sun

Sentience of dawn the ashes vibrate sacred chants
shrouded cataclysmic webs collide
Perception blinds the eyes witness blighted hands
blackened pilgrims walkers of oblivion

Beneath a burning sun

Silence – after the storm
fires infernal - out of control
Defiance – the words of the eye
by the sword all the traitors must die
Spiders – a crack in my armour
probings are inside my head
Cerebral - incisions in blood
I walk in the valleys of forever green
Track Name: Celestial Mistress
Celestial Mistress

Pt 1: Worlds collide

Collapsing walls upon my grave - Life beyond confines
Masonic prison broken free - signs at the end of times
I am the shade of eons past- treading paths of blood
Shedding ages of despair - rise again unbroken

Into these crimson skies - awakened sister
From the edges of my soul - shattered sanity
Divided worlds collide - patterns are unfolding
Reapings of corrupted seed - sown in agony

Elusive days of light
broken looking glass of time
buried sleep that is my sin
penance unforgotten crime
Confining barriers defied
hunger for the living world
nothingness denied
whispers are unheard

Pt 2: Gardens of Bahb-Elon

Gathering of stars, gardens dark delight
flowers bloom in blood cut from vicious thorns
Shadows veil your eyes, soul adrift in worlds beneath
tread lightly on these cobblestones of crimson white
Prophecy alive, past the burning dreams
words are naught but riddles in this bitter strife
Shadows veil your eyes, a longing, burning flame
evils walk these silent halls at night

Pt 3: Return of the Witch

I live again inside this flesh
infection of the womb
I feed the essence drawn inside
infant life
Betrayal in disguise
possession of the soul
I am the sickness of this world
my spirit cannot die
Celestial mistress
