Atlantis Rising Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Megalodon (8:20)
"Arise all ye faithful to the sword."

From the depths of the ocean
Prehistoric - monstrous distortion
From the depths of creation
Comes the hunter - death's incarnation
Birth of the Gods, first of the Titans
Mastered by no-one, before Poseidon
From the depths of inception
Comes the monster - lost from redemption

Ancient king of tides
Killer instinct in his eyes

'Tis the deep desolation
Dark aquatic - life's domination
'Tis the thirst for consumption
Comes the creature - bloody seduction
Abomination. life's decimation
Hells' own creation, beast of damnation
'Tis the wake of destruction
Feeding frenzy - god of disruption

Ancient king of tides
Killer instinct in his eyes

Feel the urge for the blood feast
Murderous nature - nature of the beast
Feel the wrath of seven seas
Cataclysmic - Fate of the deep-freeze
Cycles completion, doomed to extinction
Ancient creations', cold termination
There will never again be
Such a killer - a shark so deadly
2. Lemuria (2:50)
Beneath the rolling waves
Inside the coral caves
I lay before the altar stone
To pray for what we once had knwon
From The Deluge we did escape
We now live in Poseidon's wake - wake
The wake of Poseidon's rage

I've made the sacrifice
The spell has been cast thrice
What have we longed for all these years
Before the world shall soon appear
The elder gods have come to free
Lemuria
3. Atlantis Rising (7:01)
Few are left that believe
In the lost land of mystery
And the tyrant king
Who drowned the lands is just a dream

Through the Eye of the Sea
A world of change doth come to be
Through Atlantis' key
The truth is now revealed to thee

Triton's re-birth from Lemuria's tears
Magikal lightning is striking
After The Deluge hidden in all these years
Once more Atlantis is rising

For the holy war child
Engulfed cathedral's bells still chime
Crystal pyramid's light
Again bestowed upon the night

Blessed mountains doth rise
The ocean parts before thine eyes
Born again of the tides
The gods of Atland are alive

Triton's re-birth from Lemuria's tears
Magikal lightning is striking
After The Deluge hidden in all these years
Once more Atlantis is rising
4. Sea Witch (4:29)
Hear the bells toll for Atland
Celebration of the chimes
Rising up from the drowned lands
The king has brought forth new life

From the mists of the ocean
Beauty born of the crypt
Claiming kingly devotion
Evil's spawn the sea witch

Fatal beauty conspires
To usurp the throne of the king
For Cthulu shall rise
When the witch casts her spells to the sea

Hear the queen of deception
Spread her lies to all ears
Through her dark incantations
The Old Ones shall appear

Comes the Old Ones' avenger
Bringing death to the king
For Cthulu shall rise
When the witch casts her spells to the sea
5. Resurrection (6:38)
'Tis the ancient spell of calling
The enchantress casts this night
'Tis the time of Midgard's falling
As the Old Ones come alive

Resurrection through The Eye - of the Sea
As Cthulu comes alive - Midgard bleeds

Necromantic spell of binding
Sealed with blood of sacrifice
See the dream of Atland dying
Through the witches' bloody rites
6. Decimation (6:38)
Out of The Eye of the Sea
Bringing his demon army
Elder God of blasphemy

Devouring the witch of the sea
Breaking the spell of binding
Death to Atlantis' queen

Dark winged minions of Hell
Brought forth to poison the well
Silencing Poseidon's bells

Armies of Atland are felled
Trition defending the well
Falls to Cthulu's black spell

Scorching the earth
Taking of life
Turning it into disease
Unholy birth
Nature defiled
Mankind is brought to its kness
Now Midgard bleeds
Cthulu's eyes
Face of annihilation
Return of the Old One
The god of decimation

Unleashed upon every shore
Comes the Cthulun black horde
Leaving a bloodbath of gore

Man is laid waste by the sword
Decimated by the war
High above two ravens soar

Scorching the earth
Taking of life
Turning it into disease
Unholy birth
Nature defiled
Mankind is brought to its kness
Now Midgard bleeds
Cthulu's eyes
Face of annihilation
Return of the Old One
The god of decimation
7. Flight of the Ravens (2:11)
Odin's ravens soar again
Across the planes
The eyes and ears
Of Valhalla

Huginn and Muninn by name
Fly o'er the plains
Thought and Memory
of the All-Father

Oh their eyes see
Fires of Midgard
As they cross
The rainbow bridge

Oh theirs ears bleed
From screams of war
Deathly magik
Come from the abyss

O'er the bridge black wings doth sail
Bringing the tale
Of blasphemy
And resurrection

To the hall where Wotan hails
Singing the tale
Of Midgard's
Death and decimation

Oh their eyes see
Fires of Midgard
As they cross
The rainbow bridge

Oh their ears bleed
From screams of war
Deathly magik
Come from the abyss
8. March of the Gods (5:09)
Odin opens the doors of the hall
Rises every warrior to the call

The gods are marching again
Across Bifrost
Valhalla's heroes of death
All cross Bifrost

Heimdall sounding the horn Gjallir
Asgard's calling to war for the earth
Mighty hammer of Thor Mjolnir
9. Siege of Atland (4:53)
Attack
Don't look back
Atland must soon be set free

Armies clash
Sons of the night lead the siege and
Attack
Lightning cracks
Torching the flesh that's diseased

Don't hold back
Hack and slash all that you see and
Attack

Aesir warriors come from Asgard
To fight Cthulu's demon horde
Odin's army of warrior bards
Led by his son the mighty Thor

Cthulu's dark knights doth make their last stand
Valhalla's warriors lay siege to Atland

Battle rages on for Midgard
Upon the rings of Atland's shores
Blood and guts spill o'er the ramparts
The Valkyries this night doth soar

Cthulu's dark knights doth make their last stand
Valhalla's warriors lay siege to Atland
The minions die beneath the swords of the brave
Sons of the night besiege Atland shall be saved
10. War of the Gods (8:49)
Summoning the power of his spear
All-Father opens the gates
To the temple of Poseidon's tears
Where Triton's slayer awaits

As the Thunder God brings down the storm
Fighting at his father's side
Poseidon returns to Atland's shores
To avenge his son's demise

Holy gods defy the beast of fear
Now the Old One's magik fades
Conjuring their spells the Norns appear
Banishment Cthulu's fate

As the Thunder God brings down the storm
Odin's magik fills the night
Poseidon returns to Atland's shores
To open the Sacred Eye

As the Norns pronounce the fate of war
Cthulu cast through The Eye
By Odin's command the mighty Thor
Does remold Midgard back to life
