Hail Infernal Darkness Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Procession of Pain (5:35)
What feeble man is tortured by madness
Mocked and spat upon as trudging to a storied death
Alone to suffer, crushed by your burden
Symbol of failure, stained with your blood

Blows raining down upon your battered form
Flaying the skin and deep into the flesh
Pitiful wails and the sound of cracking bone

In a splash of blood, skin split wide open
With every cruel lash of the whip
How holy is this mutilated shape at my feet
Lying in the dirt like the worthless piece of shit you are

Procession of pain
The bleeding never ends

Like your savior of nothing, lust for perverse pain
Whipped and beaten without mercy
Covered in blood, beaten to a pulp
In the image of your imagined salvation

Procession of pain
The bleeding never ends
2. Genocide Advocary (3:20)
Wretched lives so fragile
Shorn sheep befoul the globe
Multiplying accelerations
Fraudulent existence, spoon fed lies

From all sides

In nature the weak and stupid are eaten
Enforcing natural selection
Cults of deception have coddled the fable
Eons of greed and corruption
Glorification of idiocy
Ignorance seems to surround
Elimination, purification
Usher them all underground

Burn all shreds of weakness
With death is purity
Mass of worthless left behind
Vast the reaper's prey

Exalted are the slayers
Lone wolves cull the herd
Shattering the useless
Glory in life's undoing

In nature the weak and stupid are eaten
Enforcing natural selection
Cults of deception have coddled the fable
Eons of greed and corruption
Glorification of idiocy
Ignorance seems to surround
Elimination, purification
Usher them all underground

Genocide Advocacy
Genocide Advocacy
3. Hail Infernal Darkness (3:59)
Hail Infernal Darkness
Torment the children of the light
Banish the heresy of faith
At the stakes the flames arise

Hail infernal darkness
Gaze into the depths of the abyss
An empty vessel I have now become
Pour black hatred into me

A path alight for the masses
Will lead only to slaughter
Give praise to death
Hail infernal darkness
Lead the sheep into the fires
Smoke shall blot the sky
Give praise to death
Hail Infernal Darkness

Testament to human weakness
Cowards seek comfort in illusions
Wisdom lies occulted in shadow
All light is bound to expire

Call Me Adversary

Leveling the temples
Toppling the thrones
Light after Light
Flickers and dies

You can call me adversary

A path alight for the masses
Will lead only to slaughter
Give praise to death
Hail infernal darkness
Lead the sheep into the fires
Smoke shall blot the sky
Give praise to death
Hail Infernal Darkness

Give Praise to death
Hail Infernal Darkness
Give praise to hate
Hail Infernal Darkness
Give praise to evil
Hail Infernal Darkness
Give Praise to Hell
Hail Infernal Darkness
4. Blood of A Million Martyrs (3:54)
Purveyors of insanity
The nails await your flesh
These planks are stained with ages
Thousands have gone before you
Outlawed and ostracized
Hunted down like dogs
Put to the strappado
And mercilessly flogged

Blood of a million martyrs
Shed eternally in vain
Millions more must follow
Holocaust of the insane

Glowing coals beneath the grill
Await your naked flesh
Bars of iron sear the skin
Slowly cooked to death
Others sliced across the scalp
To be skinned alive
Peeling slowly with the blade
Let’s see how long you survive

Blood of a million martyrs
Shed eternally in vain
Millions more must follow
Holocaust of the insane

Flesh is weak, your faith is weaker
Nothing reaped but death and torture
Belief is nothing but a symptom
of the madness that you suffer

Blood of a million martyrs
Shed eternally in vain
Millions more must follow
Holocaust of the insane

Purveyors of insanity
The nails await your flesh
These planks are stained with ages
Thousands have gone before you
Dismembered or burnt at the stake
Slowly crushed with stones
Exterminate the faithful
Seas of blood and shattered bones
5. Throne of Desolation (Befouling the Scriptures) (4:17)
Seize the throne, unholy usurper
A sacred place of desolation
Cold as ice, the dead of night
Thy will must be done

Essence of holiness
Horribly Possessed

Trumpeting the birth of a new messiah
Newborn infant is baptized
Cast into the holy waters
Deliverance into the promised kingdom

Befouling the scriptures
Stench of desecration
Befouling the scriptures
The spirit lingers
6. Suffer A Traitor's Fate (4:41)
Cut down from the noose alive
Seated before a blazing fire
Pray the executioner’s sharpened his blade
The length of your stomach feel his razor incise
Privy members severed from your body
Extract the bowels with tongs of iron
Roasting them over the flames
Fainting from the excruciating pain

Suffer for your crimes
Butchered before you die
Eviscerate
Decapitate
Mutilate
A traitor’s fate

Prolonged agony finally ends
Mercy is cutting off the head
Beheaded corpse is carved apart
Into halves and into fourths
Butchered remains disposed at the crowd’s pleasure
Reversing the carnage for public display
Terror to be stricken into treasonous hearts
Fresh par-boiled with pungent spice to keep the birds away

Suffer for your crimes
Butchered before you die
Eviscerate
Decapitate
Mutilate
A traitor’s fate

Regions now lie quite depopulated
Nothing could be more like hell
Severed heads staked on the houses and sleepies
Human quarters hung like leaves from the trees
Cauldrons boiling dismembered carcasses
Over fires sparkling and cracking
Smoke fills the air as steam arises
A bubbling broth of limbs and blood

Eviscerate
Decapitate
Mutilate
A traitor’s fate
7. Escape to Cremation (5:13)
Flight from persecution
Refuge sought from certain death
Preying on their desperation
False hope salesman
Arise at Rue le Sueur tonight
With payment in your hand
Inoculated against disease
You will find in foreign lands

Occupation
Liquidation

Escape
Escape to cremation
Escape
Escape to cremation

Into the death chamber
Injection takes effect
Through a hole I watch
Their cruel agonizing deaths
Victims are dismembered
And their wealth belongs to me
Corpses piling up
But the time pit’s full already

Resistance
Liquidation

Vile black smoke belches thickly
From burning chimney
The rancid stench suffocating
Spreading through the air
In the basement furnace
Severed limbs ablaze
Mutilated bodies stacked
Like wood to feed the flames

Lucrative
Liquidation

Escape
Escape to cremation
Escape
Escape to cremation
8. Bind, Torture, Kill (4:40)
Family slaughtered
Strangled inside your home
No random intrusion
Cords wrap around your throats
The code for me will be BTK
Additional victims will be on the way
A demon compels me to kill once again
Driven to murder for public attention

Bind them
Torture them
Kill them

Stripped and bound
Strangled at your bed
Neck wrapped up tightly
In plastic I encase your head
The code for me will be BTK
My massacres will compare with the greats
Factor X possesses me, another has to die
Let it be a mystery
You guess who and you guess why

Bind them
Torture them
Kill them
9. Nightghoul of the Graveyards (5:21)
Behind the house, the shed
Where headless she is found
Hanging from the ratters
Like a deer; disemboweled
Vagina carved out
For the collection
Her heart atop the stove
Head used as an ornament

On nocturnal raids
Opening the graves
Soon insufficient
Living specimens to be slain

Nightghoul of the graveyards
Fulfilling aberrant obsession
Twisted by devotion
Derangement festers in isolation
Sudden disappearance
Follow the trails of blood

Discarded organs boxed
Shoved aside and left to rot
Render the choicest pieces
Into macabre implements
A hollowed face and torso
A vest of human skin
With this upon me
I can touch my dreams

On nocturnal raids
Opening the graves
Soon insufficient
Living specimens to be slain
