Imperial Doom Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Imperial Doom (4:12)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Monstrosity]

A burning grave of undying pain
habitual process of conquering doom
This path of tortures is travelled slow
Victims of chronic afflictions are ruined

Living and dying is one in the same
Their flesh is now battered beaten and torn

Bloodlust
Descent through [misprinted as "trough" in CD liner notes] flames
A storm of sin
exploding through the earth
Feel the burns
Caress [misprinted as "carress" in CD liner notes] the body
skin is smoldering
transcending death

Crave the blood
exalted one
Entity
of the Imperial fire

Shadows entwine domination aligns
Scorn is now cast by a hell-fire blast
Behold the sins discharging mass hate
The dead are controlled their bodies are raped

Condemned by thoughts that have surrounded me
Betrayal against my soul is now complete
Altered reason cascades disbelief
My existence [misspelled as "existance" in CD liner notes] succumbs to a rage
of spite

Crave the blood
exalted one
Entity
of the Imperial fire

Shadows entwine domination aligns
Scorn is now cast by a hell-fire blast
Behold the sins discharging mass hate
The dead are controlled their bodies are raped

Crave the blood
exalted one
Entity
of the Imperial fire

Shadows entwine domination aligns
Scorn is now cast by a hell-fire blast
Behold the sins discharging mass hate
The dead are controlled their bodies are raped

A burning grave of undying pain
habitual process of conquering doom
This path of tortures is travelled slow
Victims of chronic afflictions are ruined

Living and dying is one in the same
Their flesh is now battered beaten and torn
2. Definitive Inquisition (4:10)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Harrison / Van Erp]

A hybrid form [misprinted as "torm" in CD liner notes] of assembly
in hidden circles of transgression
A vision looms far ahead
emanating [misprinted as "eminating" in CD liner notes] beyond our spectrum

A burning infusion
restores the one
who's looking past
the doors that lie agape

Encompassed only by knowledge
thought our lives cannot withstand
For those unknowing it lies futile
our human proficiency remains untapped

Thoughts now diminish [misprinted as "dimish" in CD liner notes]
traces of recision [misprinted as "recission" in CD liner notes]
The garden of evil
has you chained against your will
No need for penance [misprinted as "pennance" in CD liner notes]
your actions are unsighted
in a world of inertia
you've proved yourself deficient
Definitive inquisition
Definitive inquisition

A burning infusion
restores the one
who's looking past
the doors that lie agape
A blizzard of aversion
awaits the one
who's blinded by the mind
of which it rapes

A hybrid form [misprinted as "torm" in CD liner notes] of assembly
in hidden circles of transgression
A vision looms far ahead
emanating [misprinted as "eminating" in CD liner notes] beyond our spectrum

A prophecy instilled within
a fervor [misprinted as "forver" in CD liner notes] to congeal this essence
This totality
injects your soul
to propel your death
with endless control

Thoughts now diminish [misprinted as "dimish" in CD liner notes]
traces of recision [misprinted as "recission" in CD liner notes]
The garden of evil
has you chained against your will
No need for penance [misspelled as "pennance" in CD liner notes]
your actions are unsighted
in a world of inertia
you've proved yourself deficient
Definitive inquisition
Definitive inquisition
3. Ceremonial Void (3:59)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Monstrosity]

Deranged thoughts, a twisted mind
I've imagined a vision of burning Christ
Arranged, pre-ordained
Wisdom of the insane

Infliction inherent, Life deemed estranged
Reality transparent, normalcy in vain
Memory converted, A ministry ingrained
Tribulation for your sins, your mind is now enslaved

Hateful lies
known as promises
brainwashed minds
scarred as evidence
incoherent, to realities [misspelled as "realitys" in CD liner notes] denied
Frenzied thinking, delusions soon confied
Fallacy enraged, by the ways of law
This dominance controls with time !

Calculated doom
of your impurities [misspelled as "impuritys" in CD liner notes]
Saturation
of this sickness
A Vicious Mental Thirst !

Craving such insanity
You yearn to quell this hunger

Hateful lies
known as promises
brainwashed minds
scarred as evidence
Disciples, yet their minds cannot decide
Inbred [misprinted as "Imbredded" in CD liner notes] by a faith that soon
divides
Addiction, your [=you're] engulfed, by the ways of God
His dominance controls your mind !
A Vicious Mental Thirst !

Craving such insanity
You yearn to quell this hunger
4. Immense Malignancy (3:40)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Monstrosity]

Decrepit, replete with misery
the elders lie diseased
and are dead or dying
Dilapidated, we feel tortured
You live the life of a corpse
its the destiny of your death

This malignancy is so immense
and in the end you'll all die off
A living carcass that is soon to crumble
and leave this feeding ground of the dead

Erosion of your carcass
your skin begins to tatter
as the worms consume your brain
Weathered your life corrodes [misspelled as "carrodes" in CD liner notes]
trapped in horror
while your body bio-degrades

This malignancy is so immense
and in the end you'll all die off
A living carcass that is soon to crumble
and leave this feeding ground of the dead

Decrepit, replete with misery
the elders lie diseased
and are dead or dying
Dilapidated, we feel tortured
You live the life of a corpse
its the destiny of your death

This malignancy is so immense
and in the end you'll all die off
A living carcass that is soon to crumble
and leave this feeding ground of the dead
5. Vicious Mental Thirst (4:18)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Monstrosity]

Dismal. Fears that I have known
haunt me. Words cannot express
my torture. I mourn reality
Conceal, the scars of yesterday

Defamed, pain seeping from my wounds
Shatter, the boundaries of the mind
Apocalypse, I bring the fall of time
Crippled, by shadows in my mind

Destroy Me !

Nightmares, encircled by delusion
Spinning, a subconscious web of sadness
Obsessed, with altercations of the mind
Disturbed, my sense [senses?] are malign

Dark prayers swelter in my brain
A boiling hate devours my sanity
I shall never be the same

Dismal. Fears that I have known
haunt me. Words cannot express
my torture. I mourn reality
Conceal, the scars of yesterday

Destroy Me !
6. Burden of Evil (3:23)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Harrison / Van Erp]

The light does not shine for me
illumination of my darkest fear
burning cries [misspelled as "crys" in CD liner notes] from beyond the shadows
screaming whispers only I can hear

Hatred burns with flames of disgust
your grinding death becomes so clear
a smoke-screen of confining greed
clouded vision fogs your memory

These fallen victims
now disdained
swarming evil cries
they beck you on
Your faith soon dies
it's ripped in two
desecration infiltrates [misprinted as "infultrates" in CD liner notes]
and has now broken through [misprinted as "though" in CD liner notes]

The winds of sorrow
bleed through the air
infested with pollutants
it's far too late to care
The sky is now filled with chemicals
Full with toxic particles

The light does not shine for me
illumination of my darkest fear
burning cries [misspelled as "crys" in CD liner notes] from beyond the shadows
screaming whispers only I can hear

These fallen victims
now disdained
swarming evil cries
they beck you on
Your faith soon dies
it's ripped in two
desecration infiltrates [misprinted as "infultrates" in CD liner notes]
and has now broken through [misprinted as "though" in CD liner notes]

The light does not shine for me
illumination of my darkest fear
burning cries [misspelled as "crys" in CD liner notes] from beyond the shadows
screaming whispers only I can hear

These fallen victims
now disdained
swarming evil cries
they beck you on
Your faith soon dies
it's ripped in two
desecration infiltrates [misprinted as "infultrates" in CD liner notes]
and has now broken through [misprinted as "though" in CD liner notes]

The winds of sorrow
bleed through the air
infested with pollutants
it's far too late to care
The sky is now filled with chemicals
Full with toxic particles
7. Horror Infinity (4:54)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Monstrosity]

Bloodspray, Slaughter
a prophecy of traumatic despair
Echoes of promise
now parasite infested
they feast upon your flesh
Eternal horror

Abysmal sights
of the final seize
oppressing [misspelled as "opressing" in CD liner notes] lives
lurid memories
Days are lost
and filled with hate
encased in ruin
guilt ridden fools

Our destiny in fallen ruin
fear subsides, we travel through
Faded skies [misspelled as "skys" in CD liner notes] now bequeath [misspelled
as "bequeth" in CD liner notes]
this timeless torture violates

[Chorus:]
"Horror infinity
Shrouded destiny
Pain is all we see
Life it cannot be"

The winter's [misspelled as "winters" in CD liner notes] storm
takes us all
a blast of fire
makes it's call
dark depression
sweeps the streets
burning all
the task complete

witness [misprinted as "wittness" in CD liner notes] anguish, revolutions pass
the invocation of revelations cast
Spawn of horror, endless well
our burning coffins shipped straight to hell

[Repeat chorus]

Through deepest valleys of distorted thought
Clutching for reason we've harnessed our fall

Abysmal sights
of the final seize
oppressing [misspelled as "opressing" in CD liner notes] lives
lurid memories
Days are lost
and filled with hate
encased in ruin
guilt ridden fools

Our destiny in fallen ruin
fear subsides, we travel through
Faded skies [misspelled as "skys" in CD liner notes] now bequeath [misspelled
as "bequeth" in CD liner notes]
this timeless torture violates

[Repeat chorus]
8. Final Cremation (3:23)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music: Monstrosity]

A dark envision [duh, it's a verb, not a noun!] surrounds the mind
grasping for the souls of dead
the undead come trudging up
engulfing evil in your head

A sacrilegious [misspelled as "sacreligious" in CD liner notes] action burns
inside
this chant of death now seeps
through your eyes
A blackened charr ["char" is a verb, not a noun; "charr" is a kind of fish]
enraptures blood

Awaking cries
of unconscious souls
petrified to arise
Sifting ashes
of the funeral of life
to compel the final
cremation of the skies [misselled as "skys" in CD liner notes]

The fire burns through every corpse

Resurrected shell of death
revitalized core of dust
altered for the last of days
and propelled to liquidate

An unearthly sense dwells within my head
drifting through the walls of time
the oracle of insanity
must destroy this wasted ball of mass

Awaking cries
of unconscious souls
petrified to arise
Sifting ashes
of the funeral of life
to compel the final
cremation of the skies [misselled as "skys" in CD liner notes]
9. Darkest Dream (3:09)
[Lyrics: L. Harrison; music - Monstrosity]

A civilization has now become
The seeds are sewn to end mankind
Desecration persists against the bringer of hope
To shower evil in these innocent minds

Relentless time
Awake through pain
Timeless shame
Deformities [misspelled as "Deformitys" in CD liner notes] of sanity soon
twist into a
ghostly visage
Volatile anger burns inside
I relinquish all my thoughts
Visionary hatred
Cast upon the darkness of my archaic dreams

Live heated coals
That sear strips of flesh
Thay tear against confinements of humanity
To build upon depression
Fumigation of the world you know

As your life disappears [misprinted as "dissapears" in CD liner notes]
Evils find the gateway through your soul

Forever encaged, through passages of the mind
Enslaved by tunnels of tragedy
Illusions invoke mass tranquillity [misspelled as "tranquility" in CD liner
notes]
Pain incarcerates your mind

Relentless time
Awake through pain
Timeless shame
Deformities [misspelled as "Deformitys" in CD liner notes] of sanity soon
twist into a
ghostly visage
Volatile anger burns inside
I relinquish all my thoughts
Visionary hatred
Cast upon the darkness of my archaic dreams

Dying, in this dreaded world
Transition of your life is inevitable
Awaiting, your spirit now roams
But I know your wait is not alone
