Cold Moon over Babylon Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Cold Moon over Babylon (6:54)
You and I are on the threshold of the chasm
To the underworld
Can we unlock the door?
We define all the curious and purified
Who read the words
And crossed the floor

The covenant entrusted
The Well of Souls encrusted
The dagger's blood is rusted
We are legion

Draw the circle nearer
As all becomes clearer

Higher
Build you tower higher
Higher
To the clouds go higher

A cold moon over Babylon
It speaks to you in foreign tounge now
The Lesser Key of Solomon
The pages turn to raise your demon

You believe that as you hold the book
And read the lines
You sanctify
But in truth you lie
We believe that with our magic and our ritual
We purify and mystify

Draw the circle nearer
As all becomes clearer

Higher
Build you tower higher
Higher
To the clouds go higher

A cold moon over Babylon
It speaks to you in foreign tounge now
The Lesser Key of Solomon
The pages turn to raise your demon

Solo - George
Harmony Solo - Wayne


Higher
Build you tower higher
Higher
Raise your demon
Higher
To the clouds go higher

A cold moon over Babylon
It speaks to you in foreign tounge now
The Lesser Key of Solomon
The pages turn to raise your demon
2. The Black Pyramid (7:26)
Where the river and the sand
Come together by the hand
Of the keeper of the Temple of the Sun

There's a mountain made of stone
Ever standing on its own
Waiting silently for Anubis to come

Hateful is my name
All my brothers turn away
From the smell of Ravens dying in the heat

Accursed is the flesh
Of the ones awaiting death
Who wade from stinking marches with their meat

Who can I speak to now in the dark?
There are no faithful left among you

It's in my blood
The sands of time run through my viens
And into your eyes

Cado, Diabolus
Ubi inquit excessium
Voluntus qui inquit
Eximo, vel inquit capio
Inferno

Breathing in the air
Of a thousand year old lair
As I plunder all the temples of the king

On the walls I read, enchanted
From the book of the dead
From the underworlds I hear the Demons sing

Yet the air is foul
As I come unto you now
Let me whet the fire of your thirst

Naked you will lay
On the alter as I pray
Draining you with dagger and a curse

Will you not listen now in the dark?
There is a shadow stood behind you

It's in my blood
The sands of time run through my viens
And into your eyes

Cado, Diabolus
Ubi inquit excessium
Voluntus qui inquit
Eximo, vel inquit capio
Inferno

Harmony solo: Wayne
Solo: George

Laying buried in the sand
Is it hard to understand
That you cannot fight the power in the dust

Exposing at the core
That the blackened heart is pure
The only true emotion is your lust

She who travels yonder
On the river is a god
Destroying every temple in her wake

Screaming as she came
Calling out her name
Embracing as the Earth begins to shake

Who will you prey to now in the Dark?
I am the statue stood before you

It's in my blood
The sands of time run through my viens
And into your eyes

Cado, Diabolus
Ubi inquit excessium
Voluntus qui inquit
Eximo, vel inquit capio
Inferno

It's in my blood
The sands of time run through my viens
And into your eyes
And into your eyes....
3. Arise Neophyte (5:11)
Ride the sun across the sky
In the hope that when you die
You'l be born again
This time tomorrow

Hold the fire in you hands
So the teacher understands
You have mastered all the words of sorrow

Make the sign across your chest
Hold the ashes of your memories in your heart
Wipe the bloody tears away
Understand you will forever be apart

Open your eyes
You will learn to fly again, fly again
Open your mind
You will learn to live again, live again

Atop the mountain of your dreams
The moon is further than it seems
The way is long
And you must climb forever

Take the road, lead the way
Or your followers will stray
You must sanctify the oath together

He that rises in the east
Is the father of the lies you told before
There are some who say the beast
Is the giver of the life you have in store

Open your eyes
You will learn to fly again, fly again
Open your mind
You will learn to live again, live again

All full of lies we told, and we believed them
Like they were a truth from Heaven
Misery comes untold to our children
So full of trust and vision

Ride the sun through the sky
Hold the banner up on high
Make the sign and the call
Be the strength and hope of all
Wipe the bloody tears away
Understand you're here forever
Forever...

Open your eyes
You will learn to fly again, fly again
Open your mind
You will learn to live again, live again
4. A Murder of Demons (7:20)
I am the Judas of the underworld
They call me Asmodey Divine
I am the many thorns of anarchy abound
The doubt and fear sublime

I am the pages of Le Megaton
Manifest of words and lies
When you invoke the Godless one
I am the one you'll see arise

When I speak you will hear me
I can shape the wind
I take your children
The worm lies within
Drink from me and taste the wine
Find that the blood is fine
Feed on me, the Lord divine
Eat now, the flesh is mine

We are The Overlords of Time
We're bonded by the oath of lies
We are the flaming sun
The darkness in your mind

Every spirit of the firmanent
The many sins of love and hate
And every spell and scourge of God above
And of the serpent at the gate

The juggernaut, the mouth of flame
The darkness and the void
The triple head of Ayamon
I'll see your world destroyed

When I speak you will hear me
I can shape the wind
I take your children
The worm lies within
Drink from me and taste the wine
Find that the blood is fine
Feed on me, the Lord divine
Eat now, the flesh is mine

We are The Overlords of Time
We are the underworld divine
We are the legion of
The orb that does not shine

Solo - George
Harmony Solo - Wayne
Solo - George

When I speak you will hear me
I can shape the wind
I take your children
The worm lies within
Drink from me and taste the wine
Find that the blood is fine
Feed on me, the Lord divine
Eat now, the flesh is mine

We are The Overlords of Time
We are the holders of the line
We are defenders of
The Legion and The Sign

I am the Judas of the underworld...
5. Malachi (5:15)
When all your children dream of me
They'll wake up terrified
You'll have to tell them that
Their gods and prophets lied

I'll take you down the path
That shows you all your sin
And by the time I'm done with you
We will both begin to understand

We were born alone
They have sacrifced our sons upon the Killing Stone
We are coming home
We will raise the flag
And plant the seed where we belong

Malachi

I'll dictate the sacrifices
Worthy of a king
The baptised heads of your unborn
Will feel the burning sting

I hold the purity of faith within my hands
And when the timeless mind of God
Reaches out for you
You'll understand

We have hearts of stone
They abandonned us to eat our young and die alone
We are flesh and bone
Never trust the one who disregards
The strength of one

Malachi

Solo - George

For a thousand years we roam
When the prophesies of Malachi become atoned
We will fall as one
When the sons of God arise
We'll know what we've become

Malachi
6. Heart of the Mountain (3:17)
Instrumental
7. Equinox (6:30)
The worship of the dead
The breaking of the bread
The secret of the colour in the light
Is ours alone

A journey of the sun
Another year begun
The centre of the universal light
The Lord of Rome

Consecration of the evidence
Deify the light and truth of consequences
All the colours spinning faster
As they burn in to our eyes
The masses huddle under black and burning skies

The faster that we turn
The slower we will learn
The fundamental factions come alive
And take a slice

Ignoring what is seen
By eyes that are more keen
And locking up the formula
And threatening their lives

Persecution of enlightened souls
Through the lens of oxen stars aligned
And upturned on their poles
Where is the truth you promised
With the laying on of hands
How does the gold you hunger for
Help you to understand?

Equinox - The answer in the sky
Equinox - The stars have never lied
Equinox - The shadows won't defy
Equinox - The mystery untied

Solo - George

The sunlight on the stones
The bleaching of the bones
The bending of the crucifix
The burned alive

The science of the truth
The God forsaken proof
the underlaying reason for us all
To disbelieve their lies

Future offspring of the heretic and faithless will survive
Their memories will still remain alive and be a guide
Forgiveness for the sin of pride will never be undone
Your may hear the words
Redemption for the "crime" will never come

Equinox - The answer in the sky
Equinox - The stars have never lied
Equinox - The shadows won't defy
Equinox - The mystery untied
8. Confessions of a Flesh Eater (5:43)
These are the final pages that your turn
Inside the smoke and insense that you burn
Forget the memories of things not yet passed
The will of men will outlive and outlast

Break the seal, Cross the bridge of no return
Turn your face to the cross before you burn
Recite the oath, break the bread
Speak the words that raise the dead
Hold the knife to the throat
Of the children of the goat

All your sins I forgive
For the time that you live

Holy father, I have sinned
Show me the sacrifice
I have tasted evil things
Feed me the flesh of Christ

Uplift the golden chalice to the sky
And pledge your legacy before you die
Drinking the blod and wash it down with more
And all the while you feast on flesh and whores

The sacriment lies within
Hiding just beneath your skin
Hold the cross as you regress
Imagine lies you can confess
Hold the sacred mystery, Climb the burning tree
Now embrace the Nicine creed
It's all you'll ever need

All your sins I forgive
For the time that you live

Holy father, I have sinned
Show me the sacrifice
I have tasted evil things
Feed me the flesh of Christ

Harmony Solo - Wayne
Solo - George

And in the final moments you will know
That every seed you killed begins to grow
And with the union of the flesh undone
The painful engine of death has begun

Anoint the sick, hands that heal
the sacriment is real
Consecrate, absolve the sin
And the untruth that's within
As you embrace the mystery
Become the blind that see
The flesh is weak , the will is strong
Unto the end of days belong

All your sins I forgive
For the time that you live

Holy father, I have sinned
Show me the sacrifice
I have tasted evil things
Feed me the flesh of Christ
9. Union of the Snake (7:08)
The window is closing
Our hopes are decomposing
This mental castration
The children of damnation

All this time we have known
That the wings of life have flown
Blackened blood on the stone
Cracking skin and splintered bone

Down dark corridors of Hell
Where the cloven angels dwell
In her library, books of flesh
Bind their souls and keep them fresh

The gates to Hell are open
The vortex and the flame
Now her eyes are darkened
The queen of western plains

Look on the face that bore you
Come accused sons
Carry here your dying mother
Held in weakened arms

Large orbs of his eyes opened
Serpents instead of sons
The worms of death are feasting
Wreathing around her bones

Serpents, serpents
Dark and godless
Serpents, serpents
The brotherhood will rise

The lion at the gate
The oath that will not break
What enemies forsake
The Union of the Snake

Peace now cried the blind man
The infant at his side
Neither saw the killing sword
No one heard them cry

Never feed the wanderer
Or let hime come inside
The liar and the conjurer
Is sleeping at your side

The serpents sprung from her bowels
Have drained her dry as this
The milky tears of sadness
The final deadly kiss

Serpents, serpents
Whisper secrets
Serpents, serpents
Feasting on your skin

The lion at the gate
The oath that will not break
What enemies forsake
The Union of the Snake

They're coming closer
And closer and closer...
The moment that you fall asleep
They'll be inside
They run like weeping children
To their mother's arms
Into the valley of the Union of the Snake

Solo - George
Harmony Solo - Wayne

A single poisoned blood drop
Falls down into her eye
The hypocrite of vengeance
Now Babylon is mine

Serpents, serpents
Telling endless lies
Serpents, serpents
Lead them here to die

The lion at the gate
The oath that will not break
What enemies forsake
The Union of the Snake
10. Of Pain, Transcendence and the Dark Design (7:03)
Underneath the moon she lay
The godless child of fear and pain
The benefactor falls into the fire

Silently she's on her knees
Something's crawling throught trees
Tounge removed and eyes sewn up with wire

Her selfish love is calling
Spreads in the dismal shade

She hates the gods of Earth and sea
And bears the fruit of her disease
Her secrecy is born of her desire

The human face that she reveals
Hides the truth that she conceals
Her jealosy confirms her as a liar

Her weeping night and day
Awakens those who dream

Seeking out transcendence
Searching for the endless pain
That makes her feel alive
Looking for a reason
Justifying all the pain
That penetrates our lives

Far beneath the ground she walks
In catacombs of death she stalks
And whispers to dead she's their messiah

She revels in her blasphemy
Denies the path of destiny
Bringing down the veil of her pariah

The angel rises up and greets
The ever burning sun

Pain and pleasure now as one
The love of hatred has begun
A hunger for the blood she will devour

The morning brings a deadly dew
Across the lake the bodies strewn
The stench of death grows stronger
By the hour

And wash the dusk with silver
Reflecting in her eyes

Seeking out transcendence
Searching for the endless pain
That makes her feel alive
Looking for a reason
Justifying all the pain
That penetrates our lives

Solo - George

Staring at the moonless sky
She opens up her wings to fly
The god she loved has turned into a liar

The Painful Road to Eden
Is winding on and on

Standing naked in the rye
Her arms are held up to the sky
She's going under...

The angel rises up and greets
The ever burning sun

Seeking out transcendence
Searching for the endless pain
That makes her feel alive
Looking for a reason
Justifying all the pain
That penetrates our lives
11. The Transit of Venus (9:02)
Speak to me child
Be without fear
I have done wrong by my father

He knows your sin
Confess unto him
Our love it has poisoned his alter

Something is coming
It's falling down from the sky
In darkness it's crawling
Fixing me with its eye

Sleep on my love
Hope lies above

My heart is lost
My soul is damned
The sign is crossed
Unholy lamb

The curtain aside
You no longer hide
I have grown weary of holding your life

Together we'll lie
Like sinners we'll die
Your salvation is my sacrifice

Ascending to Heaven
No glorious path that we tread
I will not lead you
By your hand through halls of the dead

Silent tears fall
On the heart stone

My heart is still
My pain is gone
My love is real
My only one

Solo - George

Heaven above me
I cast all of your reasons aside
I will foresake you
All gods and all loves she outshines

Be still my heart
Cast out your doubt

My blood is burned
My soul is gone
It journeys now
Where it belongs
