Great is Our Sin Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Arbiters of the Apocalypse (4:20)
Pestilence, herald of sickness
Exordium of our doom
Consuming both the old and the young
Precious innocents stillborn in the womb

The first of the plagues befallen man
This woeful curse brought forth by our own hands

Broken are the seals, commence the end times
Open the gates of destruction

Battles abound, on marches war
Hear the galloping hooves of the horsemen
Carnage divine, the four shall align
Apocalyptic judgement

A black shadow cast across the land
Feast your eyes on the scales of starvation
Famine devours all
Fulfilling this prophecy of deprivation

The arbiters of the apocalypse come to claim what they are owed
Now death reigns triumphant, no god will have mercy on our souls

[Solo: Davidson]
2. Theatre of Horror (4:33)
Dragged before the blood court
Soon his fate shall be sealed
Will he be hanged from the gallows or broken upon the wheel?

The white staff of justice breaks before the condemned
And so it has been decreed by the sword he shall meet his end

Marched through the streets in your own funeral procession
The crimson banner, your epitaph
The bloodthirsty mob demands his head

Theatre of horror
A macabre spectacle

The final act in this drama of sin

The executioner awaits the command with sharpened steel in hand
Ready the sword, the time has come to render justice unto the damned
Smite at his neck, sever the head
Arterial spray showers the crowd in a brilliant flash of red

Hands tightly bound behind your back
The crowd awaiting your final gasp
The bloodthirsty mob demands his head

[Solo: Davidson]

[Solo: Gargiulo]

Horrified spectators behold brutality
Grotesque entertainment, morbid curiosity
3. Monolithic Ignorance (4:33)
A doomsday declaration the signs we cannot ignore
The oceans start to boil the dead wash up on our shores
Rivers flow with toxins sickening all in their wake
Swallowing the poison, savor its virulent taste

Foolishly we followed our rulers into the abyss
Critical mass no turning back we’ve fallen over the precipice

Monolithic ignorance
Devoid of intelligence
Devolved comprehension
Reversed progression

Extinction rates growing mankind a pestilent blight
Cancerous, the disease spreads devouring all life
The earth a barren wasteland, sulfurous smoke blacks out the skies
A dead planet now expires before our dying eyes

[Solo: Davidson]

Those who sought to rule this realm have only meddled with it
The error of their foolish schemes have brought about our ruin
4. Crumbling Imperium (5:24)
Dominion spread to thin
Leaders becoming madmen
Means to an end
Pendulum swings again

A certainty
One day what is will not be
A world of entropy
Unraveling society

Trepidation fractures the core
Violent upheaval on the brink of a civl war

Crumbling imperium
All Empires fall in time
Crumbling imperium
Advent of our demise

Castles of sand
Scattered to the wind
Empty hourglass
A new age to begin
Foolhardy kings
Drunk with power
Fallen republic
Spiraling downwards

[Solo: Gargiulo, Davidson]

Civilization in ruins
A world left smoldering
Havoc and terror afflicting all
Downward we spiral, bedlam ensues
Flames growing higher
Witness the empires fall
5. Communion (4:45)
Bow before he, worship on bended knee
Consecrated, the host on which you feed
Hungrily awaiting the feast
A congregation of cannibal devotees

Place your lips to the chalice of the divine
Revel in the glory of this turpitude
Eat of my flesh and drink of my blood
These gifts I bear for you

[Solo: Davidson]

Enter into this cannibal covenant
Through this sacrifice we all are one
Receive the human Eucharist
Unholy communion

My body and blood your victuals
Anthropophagus ritual
6. The Exaltation (3:40)
Instrumental
7. Profanum Vulgus (5:27)
Obelisks of avarice, building towers of vanity
Shielded from consequence in opulent majesty

I shall avert my gaze
From the profanum vulgaris
Shunning the needy and the lame
Those fit only to serve us

[Solo: Davidson]

Corpulent gluttons prepare for the feast
Ravenous hunger, the dine on the weak

Egotist your avarice knows no bounds
Still you sit indignant on your throne of greed
Covetous hoarder of wealth, your lust for gold so obscene
Yet emptiness still fills you inside, the blight of the soulless king

[Solo: Davidson]

Vultures circling above the carrion
Corpses picked clean in a lightless dawn

Predators of rapacity
Insatiable voracity

Manipulators expand the divide
Pitiful plebeians, the common herd I decry
8. Copernican Heresy (3:44)
A heretic on trial for the crime of truth
I stand accused before thee
Orthodox inquisitors demand punishment for this blasphemy

Zealots cry out for blood
Forked tongues decree the holy word
Sentenced to the pyre
Injustice must be served

Suppression of knowledge

Questioning the origins of the cosmos and pondering our place within
Intimidation tactics, recant or face imprisonment

Unrepentant and defiant against this ignorant theocracy
A theorist in search of answers engulfed by the flames of hypocrisy

Abolishment of wisdom

[Solo: Davidson]
9. Only the Spineless Survive (4:19)
Devolved wriggling monstrosities roam through these halls
Subservient and cowering
Contorted bent backwards remove the spine
See the larvae slithering

Writhe in submission, you sold your souls for gold
Obedient to their overlords, in the grips of their master's control

Serpent's venom has become their wine

Drink deeply from the poison cup
Intoxicated and so easily coerced
Drunk on the power that corrupts

Only the spineless survive in this realm of greed
Only the spineless survive and now the gluttonous worms will feed

[Solo: Davidson]

Bought and sold
Corruption takes hold
Bought and sold
Systematic control
10. Cleaving Giants of Ice (4:22)
Mountainous guardians
Sentient beings of the north
Man, the ultimate betrayer
Shattering this crystalline realm

Adversaries of Jotunheim
Strike their spears into hearts of ice

Oh, the folly of man
Forever stained, the blood on our hands

Glacial ablation, calving into the sea
Frostbitten giants drowning amongst the debris

Adversaries of Jotunheim
Strike their spears into hearts of ice
Written in the thaw
The epitaph of all mankind

[Solo: Davidson]

Fractured arctic continent
Extinction imminent
11. Altar of Sacrifice (2:46)
Waiting the hour destined to die
Here on the table of hell
A figure in white unknown by man
Approaching the altar of death

High priest awaiting dagger in hand
Spilling the pure virgin blood
Satan's slaughter, ceremonial death
Answer his every command

Death will come easy just close your eyes
Dream of the friends you'll see
Heavenly failure losing again
Move on to a new form of life

Altar of sacrifice, curse of the damned
Confronting the evil you dread
Coalesce into one your shadow and soul
Soon you will meet the undead

[Solo: Davidson]

Altar of sacrifice, curse of the damned
Confronting the evil you dread
Coalesce into one your shadow and soul
Soon you will meet the undead

Enter to the realm of satan!

[Lead: Davidson]

Blood turning black, the change has begun
Feeling the hatred of all damned in hell
Flesh starts to burn, twist and deform
Eyes dripping blood realization of death
Transforming of five toes to two
Learn the sacred words of praise, hail satan

[Solo: Davidson]

A gift of powers disposed upon you
Use them when you feel the need
Master the forces and powers of satan
Controlling the creature's instinct
Drawn to the castles that float in the sky
Learn to resist the temptation
Watching the angels sift through the heavens
Endlessly searching for salvation

[Solo: Davidson]
