The Deluge Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Dementia (3:09)
Blue fire
Branding the thoughts
Desire,
Light of the lost.

Unholy dreams,
Demented schemes
Inside the mind
Can't seem to find
The key.

Bloodlust
Inside the heart;
Vicious - -
Rip you apart.

Unholy dreams,
Demented schemes
Inside the mind
Can't seem to find
The key.
2. Shadow in the Black (5:22)
Place that is not a place
Vortex of fire The Gateway
To all the outer planes
Where life's own Magic maintains
Circle beyond all time
Feeding The Tree with white light
Demons in dark disguise
Shall never break The Lifeline

Before The Throne
Demon of wrath
Not flesh nor bone
A shadow in the black

Cryptic The Spiral Way
Even so in this space-age
Leaving rectors dismayed
Seeking out wisdom's daybreak
Hidden by dark of night
Not even seen by hindsight
Spectre who plagues the mind
Of Bards inside the limelight

Before The Throne
Demon of wrath
Not flesh nor bone
A shadow in the black

Nightmare like is the unknown
Demon seed guarding The Throne
Test of faith probing The Soul
Eight fold way of paying the toll

[CHORUS]

Frost, from beyond the grave
Fire, to burn us the way
Rock, the strength of The Soul
Fight, this shadow of old
Here inside The Maze
Trinity of Flame
As the lightning cracks
We banish the shadow in the black

Holy war and righteous crusades
Like burning Witches at the stake
Narrow minds will never believe
Until The Dead rise from The Sea

[CHORUS]
3. Divine Victim (3:09)
Hail to the Queen
Of Victory
Her holy war was England's shame
She was no fiend
Of heresy
Put to the death by evil's flame

[CHORUS]

Another victim
Of Christianity
Ecclesiastic fire from Hell
Divine the victim
No sanctuary
Her sacred soul she would not sell

Faithful her ways
Through all her days
Enlightened child of Tree and Stone
Born of the slaved
All France she saved
Conquering Angels of Orleans

[CHORUS]
4. Hammer of the Witches (2:41)
Hammer of Hell
Not of The Well
A book of sin
Fathered by men
Unholy deeds
Done out of greed
Murder by law
In the Name of God

Burn them all
Burn them all
Burn them all

The blood runs cold
We've paid the toll
They burned the truth
Out of our youth
Bringers of pain
In the Father's name
Not of The Well
We'll send them back to Hell

And burn them all
Burn them all
Burn them all
5. Morbid Tabernacle (1:53)
6. Isle of the Dead (2:53)
Across the seas of nevermore
There lies the ancient bloody shore
Where living dead still walk the land
Demon warriors of the damned

The fires burn blood red
Upon the Isle of the Dead

The mariners still tell the tale
Of the island gate to Hell
Where sinners of the seven seas
Live out the curse of blasphemy

The fires burn blood red
Upon the Isle of the Dead

Black gate to Nifleheim
The Bells of Hell still chime
Judgement beyond the grave
Condemns their souls to burn in flames

The fires burn blood red
Upon the Isle of the Dead
7. Taken by Storm (3:19)
Black horizon
Darker than night
The Forest echoes
Tales of the fight

A Holy Warchild
Come to The Stone
To worship wisdom
Usurp The Throne

Fire in his eyes
Like flames of war
Burning the skies
Taken by storm

Armies of Hell
Devouring life
Knights of The Well
Stand strong and fight

On nightmares' wings
Atland shall die
The Tyrant King
Opens The Eye

Black Magik steel
Come to the land
Sons of The Wheel
Make their last stand
8. The Deluge (8:13)
[I. Eye of the Sea]

Lost from memory
Plato's tragedy
Few are left that believe
In the land of mystery

To all shores they did flee
Warned in time by the Priests
Atlantis's key
The Eye of the Sea

[II. The Drowned Lands]

From the depths of the ocean
Came the spawn of the deep
From the wrath of Poseidon
Tritons rose from the sea

Fire and rain from the Heavens
Triton waves rose to the sky
Split asunder by Poseidon
For opening the Sacred Eye

Land of all wonders
Engulfed by the waves
Where pyramids first rose
And sank to their graves

Isle of our fathers
Founder of our ways
Now lost to the oceans
And blue corral caves

Valusia's great Trident
Thrust into the land
Collapsing what once was
By Poseidon's hand

Flood of destruction
Remembered by all
Though most have forgotten
Atlantis's Fall

[III. Engulfed Cathedral]

After me, the deluge
9. Friction in Mass (6:27)
Feeling the pain
Inside this tortured frame
Scrying the past
Visions in broken glass
Riding The Wave
To bring back The Ancient Ways
Rune Spells be cast
Dark secret of Holy Mass
Oh can't you tell
The Magik is inside The Well

The Triad's flames
Doth cover all the planes
Fight to the last
Be more than war Friction in Mass

Black hail and rain
Nightmares outside the brain
Unholy wrath
Friction that lights The Path
Knights of the Flame
Defenders in Odin's name
Life comes to pass
The Magik of Hallowmas
Oh can't you see
The Fire is inside of thee

The Triad's flames
Doth cover all the planes
Fight to the last
Be more than war Friction in Mass

Sacred Laws of old
And ancient spells
Are never lost to those
Born of The Well
The icey wastes of home
Bred into me
A taste for the unknown
A hate for blasphemy
The waters of The Lake
Purify The Soul
But wisdom of The Fates
Always has its toll
The Fires of Mars have burned
Inside of thee
The tides shall soon be turned
By destiny
Evil lords of war
Drunk on virgin blood
Ram through the door
Letting loose The Flood
Titons rise again
Gorgons of Light
The wars now begin
'Tis time to fight

Warriors rise from the grave
Longships sailing The Wave
Bloodshed on every shore
Friction massing from war

Knights of The Flame
Rise from the grave
Fight to the last
Friction In Mass

Too wild to tame
Setting the world ablaze
Bards of the craft
Burning the midnight wax
Breaking the chain
Avenging the wrongly slain
Lords of The Axe
Servants of Candlemass
Oh can't you see
The Magik is inside of thee.
