The Devil and the Whore Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. The Devil And The Whore (4:45)
Around the chapel they gather
The whore, she lies on the altar
She waits to give herself over
She waits to take him inside her

The candle flames start to flicker
An icy chill fills the air
The master enters the chapel
A son for him she shall bear

Tonight the legions amass
The heavens spill over in tears
Tonight shall be born a monster
As saints revel in their fears

Consecrate the most infernal of all wombs

Black clouds flood the sky, the moon turns red
The Devil and whore consummate
Their lust, it thickens the air and chokes out all light
The whore gives in to the devil and allows him every desire and wish
Every sin, every pleasure, every vice

All the heavens they cry with each blasphemy that the two commit
Each thrust leading them ever closer still
All the heavens they tear at the sound of the whore in her ecstasy
Signaling that the devil will soon spill
All the heavens they tremble as the devil plants the whore with his seed
Tonight a beast shall be born to rule over earth
All the heavens, they wail as the prophecies of old come to pass
The devil, the whore, and the birth
2. Blackened (7:01)
Pain, the time has now come
Heaven set ablaze
Angels bathe in blood
Of their slaughtered god
Darkness covers all
Light no longer shines
The wretched take their place
Upon the throne of night

Death, christ turned into dust
It''s army left to rot
The kingdom overthrown
Replaced with blackened souls
Lamb of god defleshed
Torn from its holy womb
Blood poured on the earth
To sow the seeds of hate

We come to bring you death
We destroy all that we find
We are the final war
The plague that kills all life
We seek the final days
We walk the final path
Onward to the end we march
As we leave this life behind
3. The Oath (4:38)
I''ve watched as your empires have fallen
And laughed as your gods have all cried
I''ve tempted the souls of your pious
And tainted their minds with my lies
I''ve traveled across all the earth
And I''ve cursed it with each step I''ve taken
I''ve shed the most innocent of blood
In the name of that which you call Satan

There are no chains which can hold me
No sword which can pierce through my skin
There are no saints I''ve not slaughtered
And no evil I''ve not taken within
There is no sin I''ve not tasted
No blasphemy I have not embraced
No rule or law I''ve not broken
No scripture I have not defaced

The oath which binds me to this world
For past times and those yet to come
This oath which has left me immortal
And allows me to outlive the sun
Death it shall never embrace me
It''s cold grasp shall not touch my life
I''m bound by the oath to this world
Forever free to spread pestilence and strife
4. Slaying The Nazarene (3:59)
Gathered now are we
To war against the light
To watch the kingdom burn
Crush seraphs into dust

Gathered now are we
To usher in black death
Bring armageddon forth
Slit the very throat of life

Gathered now are we
To sacrifice the lamb
To crucify their christ
Baptize the all in fire

Gathered now are we
To conquer heaven''s throne
To cast out all his flock
To slaughter all his meek
Gathered now are we
For this final feast
On the flesh of man
And on the souls of angels

We will slay the nazarene
The bastard son of god
We will slay the holy lamb
And tear this world apart
5. The Heretic (2:14)
Pray to the old god for your blood to flow free

Satanic wrath for your mortal pride has blinded you to the path
Eternal hell will descend upon your kin for transgression you have made
One thousand earthly suns could not equate the light that will burn your soul asunder
An eternity of pain unleashed onto you for the final days are here

Cursed is your blood which i''ll spill upon this altar in sacrificial rites
Old gods laugh as your feeble christ cries at the destruction of his flock
Nighttime sky alive with cries of pain and sorrow as angels burn like candles
The blood of their wings as wax upon the earth, the final days are here
6. Blackened (The Circle Complete) (4:06)
Under the moonlight we rode
To the twilight horizon we marched
To bring forth the end of all time
To bring forth the new age of death

At the gates of heaven we gathered
And stormed through to capture the throne
We bathed in the blood of the angels
And ate from the corpse of gods lamb

The heavens replaced with a black cloud
The earths womb now barren and torn
Our journey brought us to this new dawn
Now we bask in the black rays of death

The end is now here
The circle complete
The twilight of man
The end of all time
7. Across The Shores.../Four Suns (10:09)
Prophecies of old
legends whispered of the days of wrath
when the curse of existence is lifted
and morality a shell long cast aside
all that lies under the sun
torn apart from the inside out
as hatred itself manifests in a glorious
orgy of destruction and despair

too long has this wheel been revolving
far too long has earth been cursed with the stench of humanity
but the bowels of unlife are destined to erupt
and spew forth great black seas of death
the skies shall crack and the heavens shall fall
and all that live will decay from within
pestilence and plagues, famines and floods
disease, death, and glorious war

four suns rise in the dawns early light
a signal the end time has begun it''s descent
that all will be lost and laid to waste
absorbed to fuel the fires of hell
four suns scorch the earth of all life
searing its flesh as it empties it''s womb
the great whore earth raped on her deathbed
her bastard offspring fed into the glorious fires of hell

eight shadows arise
enslavers of all that who remain
they now sit on the throne of death
and they shall bring hell onto the earth

the first is hatred
the second is envy
the third lust
and the fourth is greed
the fifth, pride
the sixth, corruption
the seventh, bloodlust
and the eighth is deceit

praise this dark new eon
praise this return to truth
praise this massacre of the innocent
praise this our destiny unleashed!

i will laugh from the edge of armageddon
as everything you''ve ever known is destroyed
as your world falls apart
as your icons are shattered into dust
i will laugh at the death of your children
i will laugh at the death of your gods
i will laugh at the death of your fallacies
and i will laugh as i embrace death with open arms
8. Violence And Force (Exciter Cover) (2:56)
Living in fear in the ditches at the front
Fighting for my life never knowing what''s to come
Shell shock, heart attack eats me to the bone
Through the darkest Hell this battle rages on & on
Enemy attack walls of fire burn the sky
Fighting with the rats of war, preparing to die

Violence & Force
Taken by Violence & Force
Violence & Force
Taken by Violence & Force

Armed with the weapons the power and the might
Opening fire defacing all in sight
Nuclear disaster forget about the war
A touch of switch no man will exist no more
Enemy attack walls of fire burn the sky
Fighting with the rats of war, preparing to die

Violence & Force
Taken by Violence & Force
Violence & Force
Taken by Violence & Force

Life on the stage is like the bloody crypts of war
Mind ripping metal shouting out for more
Fire bombs & smoke white beamsfrom the lights
The scene of a battle burning in the night
Leave behind the weak we must take the strong in hand
Together are the wicked violent forces in command

Violence & Force
Taken by Violence & Force
Violence & Force
Taken by Violence &
Force!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9. Take This Torch (Razor Cover) (2:28)
Searching in the darkness, searching for the light
Looking to the darkness, putting up a fight
Iron chains surround you, you try to make a run
Someone near has found you, and now you see the sun
Bright lights, now you can see where you are
Far, out in the universe
Now, you, try to escape from this spot
Hot, ready or not
Take this torch
Feel the white hot metal, feel it burn your skin
Experience the torture, pay for all your sins
Taken to the stairwell, taken to a cell
Scorches all your body, taste the wrath of hell
