Scrolls of the Megilloth Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Nocturnal (6:08)
Nocturnal
Creatures of the night
Nocturnal
Creatures of the night

Illuminate
The sky in the dark of the night
Stalk our prey
When people are asleep
Eliminate
The legions of the grave
From their minds
Ripping hatred

Nocturnal
Creatures of the night
Nocturnal
Creatures of the night

Eviction
We're plundering the dark
Kill their ways
Of death upon the mind
Invaders
They must be put to death
No more lies
Killing wisdom

Nocturnal
Creatures of the night
Nocturnal
Creatures of the night

Eradicate
Effects of demon power
Bind the grip
Of death upon the soul
Infiltrate
The words of hope and faith
To the lost
Bringing Jesus

[Mark 16:15-18]
2. Terminate Damnation (6:17)
Maggots infest the minds of unbelievers
In the form of unholiness
Deception they feast upon while unaware
Of the death that will take place

Undead stalk the earth with anticipation
Of impending release from suffering
Their rejection of the creator of all
Will prevent this from ever happening

Heed the words that terminate damnation
Terminate damnation

Escape from torment is discovered
Through blood from veins ripped apart
By warriors under a governor's hand
Unaware while tearing satan's heart

One thing remains for mankind
To be spared from eternal darkness
Become mortified to ways unclean
And please the will of His Holiness

Transformations to immortality is at hand
Through the expiry of self will
The flesh will be consumed in time
Birthing restoration to the soul

Divine regurgitation of impurity
Separation of wheat from chaff
Chaff being Godlessness, becomes extinct
Through inevitable destiny of damnation

The ostentatiousness of satan
Has descended to the burial ground
Maggots accumulate in his tomb
Worms are a covering for his corpse

Damned, slain bodies lying motionless
With festering gaping wounds from the sword
Bury this disgusting ancient beast of old
Forever eternal without escape

Heed the words that terminate damnation
Terminate damnation

Escape from torment is discovered
Through blood from veins ripped apart
By warriors under a governor's hand
Unaware while tearing satan's heart

One thing remains for mankind
To be spared from eternal darkness
Become mortified to ways unclean
And please the will of His Holiness
3. Eternal Lamentation (6:27)
The smoke of torment forever arises
Surrounded by screaming I gnash my teeth in agony
My soul's tormented, body cries aloud
I'm trapped within the walls of death

Looking back I wish I'd kept to the path
The narrow road entering the eternal dawn
The water of life which flows from the throne
And fruit unspoiled by the pests of the earth

I long for the return of the pure
Stolen from the man-forsaken garden of creation

And the stray wander toward the hideous flame
As pleasure blows without direction in the wind

Pray for the stray and their rebellion from truth
Freedom from chains and the ritual abuse
I know their affliction the distortion of nature
I once drank the blood in vain of my life

You have the answer that they try to ignore
You're in tune with the spirit while they're filled
with a void

My soul screams in the mass of the flame
As I reap my reward
4. Raise the Chalice (4:17)
Effectual fervent supplication
Of the righteous
Remember your Lord's death
Repentance and remembrance
(James 5:16)

Raise the chalice
Blood flowing veins
Shredded flesh symbol
Bread of pain

Self examination, before you partake
Wish you hideous thoughts
You must now part

If you eat and drink
In an unworthy manner
You eat and drink
Judgement on yourself
[1 Cor. 11:27]

You cannot drink the Lord's cup
And the cup of demons
Double minded man
Unstable in all ways
[1 Cor. 10:21, James 1:8]

Unless you eat the flesh
Of the son of man
Unless you drink the blood
You have no life in you

Do this in remembrance of me
[John 6:53]
5. Lymphosarcoma (6:01)
Kills immunity
Rapes the blood and bone of humanity
Being a living corpse
Grey and scaly skin
Haunted human ghost

Lymphosarcoma
God extracted you
Lymphosarcoma
Never to return

Takes away the hair
Takes away the life
You infernal beast
Years of suffering
Years of vomiting
Wretched agony

Who's your enemy
Chemotherapy, is that all
Through a chain of prayer
We will break your spell
We attack you now

With your fading strength
You cause doctors to doubt the
Healing done
Fighting from both sides
Agonizing years
We stand on the blood

Christ has evicted
Stripped and killed you
Years of war you have not won
Years later proof has shown
Total healing through his blood

Lymphosarcoma never to return
[Isaiah 53:5]
6. Scrolls of the Megilloth (4:25)
Guidance of our intimacy
Holy love is what I see
Direction from the book of life
Song of songs in the Megilloth

Existence of admiration
Man's part of God's creation
Scrolls of the Megilloth
Scrolls of the Megilloth

David's genealogy
A female friend is she
Ruth is a book of love
To overcome difficulties
Boaz, symbolic of Christ
Redeeming His holy Church

Esther, victory of morals
Over conniving racist king
Sovereignty and great courage
Protection of God's people

Taken to captivity
A sense of tragedy
Jeremiah's Lamentation
Grieving for his nation
Destruction is a logical result
Of defying God

A book of philosophy
Frustration absurdity
Everything has a season
Purposed under Heaven
Ecclesiastes, Solomon's searching
Just like your life
7. Death Requiem (5:09)
As they gather at the funeral wake
To speak of good times gone by
The deceased soul learns some more
Revealed reality, the flames of unrest

SONG: "Maybe his in his next life"
Sobs ma as the tears roll
Unknowing the eternal destination
As He awaits the judgement throne

SONG: "He's at rest now"
The hired celebrant proclaims
He tickles all the ears
While sin is exposed by the Heavenly Host

Silence falls over the crowd
As the casket lowers into the ground
While kneeling in the Heavenlies
Confessing the forsaken Lord of his life

SONG: "How can God allow this"
Cries sister in lament
But God had other plans
And revealed what this has meant

You gather what you cast into this straying earth life
While man has his will, the Son paid the price

You turn the flesh back into dust
Saying return to dust you sons of Adam
Lord teach us so to number our days
That we may apply our hearts to wisdom
In order that we avoid the aftermath of separation
Returning to the original purpose of creation

So back on earth men make their claims playing
SONG: "Where do they go" games
While up in Heaven the creator cries as people listen
To each other's lies
8. Necromanicide (4:54)
Communication with the dead
Contact with those in the grave
Reaching out to whom they've lost
Morbid existence will count the cost

Divination they will use
A seance they will not refuse
Now be seated and concentrate
Then hold hands to seal your fate

Rotting corpses buried deep
Decomposing in a mangled heap
Unable to speak at all
Only demons answer their call

Necromanicide

Feel the violent surge of pain
Flowing through your body's frame
Demons of hell invading you
Left alone, what can you do

Rotting corpses buried deep
Decomposing in a mangled heap
Unable to speak at all
Only demons answer their call

Necromanicide
Necromanicide

I am no relation of yours but one spawned
From the depths of hades whose task is to deceive you

This foul practice must be stopped
Before your cadaver starts to rot
Fall prostrate before the cross
Bathe in the blood of the sacrifice

Rotting corpses buried deep
Decomposing in a mangled heap
Unable to speak at all
Only demons answer their call

Necromanicide
Necromanicide
Necromanicide
9. Inflamed (3:25)
Inside the crypts of eternal death
Hear the screams of a billion souls
Burning in the catacombs
The place of eternal repayment

Those who died without Christ's blood
Who followed the damned, eternal liar
Will burn forever without escape
From the inextinguishable fire

Prince of the air
What does your evil dare
This very torment was ignited all for you

The burning sensation, feel the torment rumbling
The flames disposal, the end result of sin
Flames burn high, smoke burns the eyes
Join in and cry, scream for you life

Those who died without Christ's blood
Who followed the damned, eternal liar
Will burn forever without escape
From the inextinguishable fire

Who cry for help once in there's no escape
Eternal reward for the life you embraced

The dream of darkness awakes
Enter eternal flames
Tales of old proven before you
Opposing all disbelief

Those who died without Christ's blood
Who followed the damned, eternal liar
Will burn forever without escape
From the inextinguishable fire

What is eternity that you should lose your soul
Eternal life with Christ or face the second death

[Rev. 20:15, Matt 25:31, 25:46, 25:41, Luke 16:23-24, 16:28-29, Mark 8:34-38, 9:1]
10. Ancient Prophecy (11:42)
Behold the ancient scripture brought forth a prophecy
Revealed in the testament of old for all mankind to
see

The prophet Isaiah foretold long ago
The coming of a man who would heal their land

He assumed a servents nature written in Isaiah 53
He grew in wisdom and stature
Healed many and set them free

Torment and pain gripped the land
Desperation of release grew strong
The prophet saw the time was near
Impending deliverance for which they longed

The prophet Isaiah foretold long ago
Bloodied crucifixion would bring forth redemption

Behold the prophecy revealed before you
Testifies of blood spilt from butchered arteries
Mangled beyond human likeness
Shredded meat hanging from his skeletal cage
This Blood spraying from a mass of twisted flesh
Brings forth redemption to partake you must receive
Do it now before you die or pay the price
Make a step toward God or be destroyed

Surely He hath borne our griefs, weakness and distress
And carried our sorrows and pain
Yet we ignorantly considered Him stricken
Smitten by God and afflicted
But He was wounded for our transgressions
He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities
The chastisement needed to obtain peace and well-being
For us was upon Him and with the lashings and torment
That butchered Him we are healed and made complete

He assumed a servants nature written in Isaiah 53
He grew in wisdom and stature
Healed many and set them free

Ancient writings formed on parchment conceived
Beyond the realm of time
Fulfillment yet to be achieved time
Unfolds to reveal completion

The prophet Isaiah foretold long ago
Blood justification
Spiritual completion
This Blood spraying from a mass of twisted flesh
Brings forth redemption to partake you must receive
Do it now before you die or pay the price
Make a step toward God or be destroyed

[Isaiah 53:4-5]
