Venereal Dawn Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level MetalMusic
1. Venereal Dawn (11:03)
I woke at first cold wisp of dawn
To frightened mourners' quiet lament
From brooding death into rock withdrawn,
To see upon my hand descend

A giant moth with burning wings
And a face like the god of fever
From tortured lands a whisper brings
To further grieve the unbeliever,

Then fast decays to liquid rot
Wherein one insane eye still reels
Towards horizons misbegot
In lurking ill beyond the veil

The glow of monstrous fetid light
Begins to seep into the world
Flee to the last few specks of night
Ere cursed sun his plague unfurls

It is too late
Here comes the dawn

Goddess of love, morning star
Oh how you have betrayed us all
Beneath your beauty, ghostly, far,
Boils pestilence, and horrors crawl

A wretched huddle by the cave
We watch our planet rolling slowly
Towards the festering unholy
Abyss of light that is our grave

Focul tău (Your fire)
Nu ne mai încălzește (No longer warms us)
Distrugerea ta (Your perdition)
Peste noi din cer (Upon us from the sky)

Fleshless tendrils rake the air
Where once sweet pastures bloomed in peace
Sickening rays in malice flair
What once gave life now broods disease

Blind and lost we perish, shattered
Earth lies battered
Sidereal venom spreads

Venereal dawn
Defiles all living matter
Erupts supernal atter

Ethereal, venereal dawn
With putrid fists corrupts and twists
Pandemic glow subdues the world
Ruthless, imperial, venereal dawn

Trees once kissed to majesty
By soothing stellar bliss
Now scream in silent anguish
As they're wrenched towards the sky

Infested roots seek waning
Darkness as they die
Choking in the cankerous air,
Now a smouldering abyss

Focul tău (Your fire)
Nu ne mai încălzește (No longer warms us)
Distrugerea ta (Your perdition)
Peste noi din cer (Upon us from the sky)

Abominations stalk the land
Sublimed from void and spite
Vestigial grace's venal hand
Failing beast and man alike

The foul sun rising
Daybreak begets
On the horizon
A silhouette

A man-like shape
Comes at us, writhing
Snakes 'neath burnt skin
Seething eyes, mouths agape

On fevered wings he is upon us
From his gorge retches a flood
To drench us as he grabs us, one by one,
In putrefying stolen blood

Venereal dawn
Defiles all living matter
Erupts supernal atter

Ethereal, venereal dawn
With putrid fists corrupts and twists
Pandemic glow subdues the world
Ruthless, imperial

Under necrotic cells, with plasma stained
The sun's disease cannot touch me
I faint as I'm dragged across mangled plains

Sânge să fi cu noi (Blood be with us)
Sânge cuprinde-ne (Blood embrace us)
Sânge ne va salva (Blood will save us)
Unul după altul (One by one)

Sânge peste noi (Blood upon us)
Sânge ne va proteja (Blood will guard us)
Sânge ne va salva (Blood will save us)
De soare (From the sun)

Sânge să fi cu noi (Blood be with us)
Sânge cuprinde-ne (Blood embrace us)
Sânge ne va salva (Blood will save us)
Unul după altul (One by one)

Sânge peste noi (Blood upon us)
Sânge ne va proteja (Blood will guard us)
Sânge ne va salva (Blood will save us)
2. Lloigor (7:07)
Dripping holes in turbid ether
And a dozen hovering throats
Join - turn - focus - speak as one:

My name breaks mountains
My plural is war
My form your undoing
My children your doom

Your mind is my vessel
Your angels my whores
Your nightmare my soul
Your body my womb

My seed is your cancer
Your thirst is my delight

I'm freed to exceed
A thousand young drip from the sky to feed
Bleed spectral seeds
From heaven have the lloigor come to breed

I've come to breed

My milk is your poison
My cradle your grave
My flesh your disease
Your passing my birth

Your fear is my nurture
Your masters my slaves
Your prayers my deceit
Your terror my mirth

Your madness my playground
I laugh at your plight

I'm freed to exceed
A thousand young drip from the sky to feed
Bleed spectral seeds
From heaven have the lloigor come to breed

I feed on your frailty
Your grief is my door
Your oblivion fells you

My gaze tears the welkin
My psalms rot your core
My shadow compels you

My coming destroys you

I'm freed to exceed
A thousand young drip from the sky to feed
Bleed spectral seeds
From heaven have the lloigor come to breed

Mirages howl and hover
Above the searing bog
The guts of earth encovered
Icicles on boiling fog

Into the fouling nether
The bane creeps breath by breath
Radiant whips constrict like tether
Forests blister, twined in death

Living light
Blasphemy in the atmosphere
Living light

Living light
Blasphemy in the atmosphere
Living light
3. Betrayal and Vengeance (7:10)
I came to

Tied in a circle
Everything stinks
Tremors the ground

Tarnished scars
Shadows closing in
Wild-eyed chanting
Quakes in the wind

Así bailan (This is how)
Los herejes (The heretics dance)
Amor de sangre (Love of blood)
Cebo traen, (They bring bait,)
Y se caen (And they fall)
Amor de sangre (Love of blood)

Betrayal and vengeance
This is how the puppets dance
To the pipe of the black goat
The downfall has begun

Travelling through us now
A great brightness
Strung and hung
Then the blades

A crown of light
And skewered shades
Levitates into thick air
On a crimson cataract

Así se mueren (This is how)
Los herejes (The heretics die)
Terror de sangre (Terror of blood)
Cada uno tirano, (Each one a tyrant,)
Cuchillo en mano (Knife in hand)
Terror de sangre (Terror of blood)

Betrayal and vengeance
This is how the puppets fall
To the scythe of the black goat
Wielded by their sons

Betrayal and vengeance
This is how the living crawl
In the dirt they go insane
The prey no longer runs

This is how the living pay
Kill their own for one more day
As unction against the sun

Betrayal and vengeance
This is how the puppets die
In the wake of the black goat
Cold rays spread like fire

Betrayal and vengeance
This is how the shivering sky
Fumes us out and bleeds us dry
And draws us ever nigher

Neh machitia ahmo (I know you not)
Pero neh oquimpiaya mati (But I have known)
Coyolxauhqui (Coyolxauhqui)
Teh huigui nian (You must come to me)
Teh ya tlanque (You're almost through)
Tehuatl nicmati (You will know me)
Ihcuac nin cocoliztli (When this ordeal is)
Ompa (Over)
4. Chrysalis (6:29)
Every day it seeps a little deeper
I have it in me now
I carry your mark and your curse
Heartrot creeps
Withers tainted sleepers
I know every day it gets a little worse

A little worse

From without, the torrent's fierce erosion
The undertow scouring from within
Hollow rapture spreads like corrosion
Mouldering me under my skin

My skin

Veins writhe
Bones tremble
Am I dead already
Or only excarnating

Gravid pulse
Something wants to waken
I wilt and wane
Into a membrane thinned
Between debauch leeching the taken
And septic rain
This day's poisoned twins

Twins

Mind bends
Breaks, disassembles
A chrysalis incubating
Cast away, barely alive

Mind bends
Breaks, disassembles
A chrysalis incubating
Cast away, barely alive
5. I Am the Jigsaw of a Mad God (8:33)
Upon my head
I wear this crown
Of primal incest, sludge and bone
I bear it or I drown

Regent of vivisection
Lord of spiral gruel
A scourge of airborn fauna black
From which a new me grew
From which a new me grew

I am unwound
I am in wound
I am unsound
I am in womb

I am unwound...

Darwin's weeping phosphor
In the blink of an eye
The mulch of a million dead
Reaching for the sky
My body's hook beaked monolith
With chromosome stinger tip
Spits life like mother nature's
Crippled shattered hips

Oh hive
God peak of all rot
Bless me with your strength
Free me of my lot
Subcore rusty razors
Cut the string of life
My primate culture cage
Sings for fight or flight

I am unwound
I am in wound
I am unsound
I am in womb

I am unwound...

Hide me from my horror
Push me into sight
Cast your gaze upon me
An ode to nature's slight
There's laughter in the changes
Tremors in the wounds
No comfort in the earthborne
Not in the malformed moon

Holy mountain
God peak of all rot
Bless me with your strength
Free me of my lot
Subcore rusty razors
Cut the string of life
My primate culture cage
Sings for fight or flight

I am unwound
I am in wound
I am unsound
I am in womb

First came light
Expanding like a culture
A cascading torrent sickle cell
Spreads wings like dancing vultures

First came light
Commuting to the void
A seed of tumour, horror born
A wound of perfect keloid

Festering mutation grizzles with my body's truth
I am the jigsaw of a mad god

First came light
Expanding like a culture
A cascading torrent sickle cell
Spreads wings like dancing vultures

First came light
Commuting to the void
A seed of tumour, horror born
A wound of perfect keloid

I, I am the jigsaw
The jigsaw of a mad god

Upon my brow
I carry it
This burden gifted, curse born taint
My new god's choice of wit
So I walk
Black the land
Share my gift, and forlorn hope
Till my bones return to sand

Return to sand
Return to sand

I am
I am the jigsaw of a mad god
I am
I am the jigsaw of a mad god
6. The Deep (3:09)
Your world
I want no part of it
I stay here
Close the shell
Or go to kill
What kills me
Again and again

As the waters rise
Wave after wave
Stab after stab
As the masses smother
Wave after wave
Stab after stab

Until there's no blood left to spill
The precious dark broken
Wasted, another silent breath

Better to let the waters engulf
No more awakening into living death
Better to sink into the deep
Let the oceans crush the ground
Than become one of you

Let me sleep
7. Odem (6:29)
I surround you
You cannot see or touch me
Yet I drown you
A tidal pest invades

I have found you
Insipid prey to wanton storm
I'll hound you
You can't escape, the snare is laid

Demise engenders
Sleeps inside your veins
That sigh in splendor
And tremble in disgust

Sheer and tender
Your naked vessels all apace
Surrender to my amniotic lust's embrace

I howl through you
Drink deeply as you breathe me in
I prowl through you
Devour you from within

I am the wind that swallows you
The chafing hurt that hollows you
The blind decay that follows you
Until you are over

Blasting flesh to fog
Gales are harrying
Aghast visages torn to carrion

I entomb you
My venom sheathes and flays
I consume you
The very air you breathe turns to razorblades

I'm inside you
Your every heave inflames
The spell that tied you
To horrors that beget
The plagues that despise you
With every pulse your heart's
Hell defies you
Tghtens the torniquet

I howl through you
Drink deeply as you breathe me in
I prowl through you
Devour you from within

I am the wind that swallows you
The chafing hurt that hollows you
The blind decay that follows you
Until you are over
And I begin

The seven corners of the world
Cannot hide you from me
When your I is dead my You will become Me

And once I've scraped the last layer of delusion
From the hallowed blaze
Buried below that feeble carcer you called life
This illusion rends and reveals
The truth this downfall shall destroy

I howl through you
Drink deeply as you breathe me in
I prowl through you
Devour you from within

I am the wind that swallows you
The chafing hurt that hollows you
The blind decay that follows you
Until you are over
And I begin
8. Luciform (7:25)
Strip me of mind
Blunt, caged and blind
Strip me of thought
In falsehood wrought
In lies enshrined

Peel from me this deception
Expose the truth underneath
Pristine will and perception
In flesh diguised, in madness wreathed

Strip me of skin
The curse of my kin
Strip me of soul
Strip me of all
Holiness and sin

I withdraw, I forsake, I dissolve, I decease
All shape and world now below me
I succumb, shed my life wrecked by scourge and disease
I am, no more, no less, now show me

Luciform
All nightmares yield to sacred flame
Dressed in mortal frame

Luciform
The stars unveiled my secret name
Unreachable, unspeakable

Ain soph aur

Strip me of selves
The hunger that delves
Through shape and doubt
Imprisoned cells
Turn me inside out

Pour me into infinity
Where core becomes shell
Release my divinity
The boundless light in living hell

Luciform
All nightmares burn in sacred flame
Dressed in mortal frame

Luciform
The stars become my secret name
Unreachable, unspeakable

Ego to augoeides
Vi veri universum vivus vici

Luciform
All nightmares burn in sacred flame
Dressed in mortal frame

Luciform
The stars become my secret name
Unreachable, unspeakable

Vi veri universum vivus vici
9. On Fever's Wings (11:12)
Keep breathing, keep heaving
Though all those eyes will never see
This new world seething
Amidst ruin and debris

Keep weaving the spindles
Of astral thread that dwindles
Till tongues lick and rekindle
This embodied symphony

Keep sowing, keep glowing
And shattered minds respire again
Though plagues keep mowing
Seeds are growing from this bane

Transfiguring mankind
Extinguished, left behind
Ancient fabric unwinds
In deathless resilience

Beyond the whip of gods unknown
Beyond the grip of flesh and bone
Life seeks new luminance
Breathless in its brilliance

(Two bodies) جسدين
(One breath) اتفس واحد
(A million eyes) عيون
(Feasting on fever) تبتلع الحر ارة

Subside
The empyrean ignites
The ether sings
Open wide

Alight
From the other side
On fever's wings
Beyond all light

We're swarming, reforming
Cloaked by invisibility
Wide awake we're storming
Towards the great epiphany

We're burning, returning
We have become the source
Feed carnal yearning
As this magic takes its course

Our auras
Auroras
Of pure elysian energy
Evoke ardent plethoras from catastrophe

(Two bodies) جسدين
(One breath) اتفس واحد
(A beast with) وحش
(A thousand hearts) بالف قلب

Subside
The empyrean ignites
The ether sings
Opens wide

Alight
From the other side
On fever's wings
Beyond all light

(Two bodies) جسدين
(One breath) اتفس واحد
(One pulse engulfs) نبضة و احدة
(The world) تحضن الكون
