Scarlet Evil Witching Black Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Devilskin (5:49)
Draped in silken skin and torment
Hellbound and riding ghosts in flames
I'll usurp the moon and kill the sun
I'll sink the world into a dream of pain

I'll weave an invocation
To insanity and rebirth
Fiery lightning hold my hand
Show me your face in black waters

My worst, declared enemies
Are my most devoted slaves
They inspire me a wolf idolatry
I'll burn them in my witch-pyre

Tonight I'll drown the face of mankind
Into the dark blood of it's own heart
Even the shadows reflect my rage
Tonight I'm wearing Satanskin

Tonight I'm wearing Satanskin
And blood will paint my canvass
Tonight I'm wearing Satanskin
The beast is loose within me
DEVILSKIN, SATANSKIN!
2. Black Mirror (6:30)
The mirror is the psychic gate
To reach and touch the Dragon
The serpent of the inner plain
The highest of all adepts

A thousand eyes gazing upon
The candlelight of my soul
Undead's thirteen waxing moons
That shed their light on Death's own skull

Through my black mirror I change the self
Through my black mirror I change the world

The black halo reappears
As the fearsome hellfire trident
Both weapon and sacred symbol
Of my bloodline manifests

Tonguing out my hungry soul
With violent telepathy
Connecting all my spiritforms
With the fiery Barracks of Abyss

I work my magic through the dreams
I twist and bind their will
Like crafty mist I infiltrate
To shape and change their futures

The father of lies
Speaks the truth
I am the father of lies
3. Pretender To The Throne (Opus I: The Usurper's Spawn) (5:27)
Godless descendant of my blood
Impudent son of Erihtho
You dare to provoke my power
So come and feel my ruthless wrath

On a night of a fiery moon
Your witchborn mother summoned me
Whispering my dreadful names
Raising the southern winds

I rode to her on griffon's wings
Piercing the darkness of her dreams
She begged the dark to be my bride
To bear my son, the demigod

So I gave her the joys of hell
A night of dark and bleeding lust
My heathen sperm, my burning seed
To raise the mortals' demon-king

I gifted you the mortal world
To rule the lands and do as you please
And now you impious earth worm
You dare to claim your father's throne?

I am the Dragon, supreme king
I am the dark that gave you birth
I am the blood and I am the life
Death riders my chariots of sin

But if a war is what you want
Then in my Name so it will be
When Cerberus will howl at Hades
I'll come my son your soul to take
4. The Arcane Light Of Hecate (4:20)
Oh ancient one, thy the knowledge of death
Rise from thy tomb
And reveal thy wisdom, the secrets of life
To the daughters of the endless night
Born in my womb

Oh powerful queen, thy the knowledge of fear
Dangerous when crossed, the art of sorcery
The bringers of joy and misery
Thy children never tell thy mystery

Oh mother of shadows, thy the knowledge of sorrow
Join the dance in the garden of Dionysus delight
Joy of life (ecstasy of lust)
We embrace thy shining light tonight
5. Scarlet Witching Dreams (5:23)
Turn from the light and live for eternity

A mesmerizing whisper
I once heard in a dream
And blood painted my dream scarlet
Sending my soul to sleep

I dreamed a purple night sky
Which I crossed on black wings
I met the Queen of Darkness
Destined to be my bride
And blood painted my dream scarlet
Sending my soul to weep

I once dreamed of a tower
Of black ebony stone
Surrounded by three rivers
Flegethon, Acheron and Styx
And blood painted my dreams scarlet
Drowning my soul in grief

I dreamed of frozen caverns
Bathed in pale moonlight
Unearthly bat-like figures
Were resting in the vault
And blood painted my dream scarlet
Marking my soul to deep

I once dreamed of a grey wolf
Which came and licked my hands
I gazed into the beast's eyes
And saw that I must hunt
And blood painted my dream scarlet
Upsetting my soul from sleep

And now I dream of myself
Transformed and born again
Free from the earthen death tides
Entering dreams of others
And blood paints my dreams scarlet
Sending my soul to feed
6. The Serpent And The Pentagram (5:17)
Spiritual bonds and scared oaths
Malevolent spells carved on pagan flesh
Paranormal symbolism of chaos
And the serpent crawling in dark paths

In the mirrored chateau of the Worm
Daimonia dance in pentagrams
And a Sumerian wizard's chanting
Mental spellbinding rhapsodies

The serpent is now fire
And the pentagram is one

Visions stream from ruined temples
Where shapeshifting witches fornicate
Poisoned by the ruby elixir
Made by the dreams of burning infants

Like profane whispers to the moon
Are the secret ways the Ravens pray
A carmine litany in reverse
For the spirits of the Unpure

Typhona, Leviathan, Jormungand, Tiamat
Bless me with your venom
And touch me with your soul
7. Pretender To The Throne (Opus II: Battle At The Netherworld) (7:50)
Beyond the mountains of madness
Crossing the river Acheron
Lies the crimson battlefield
Where Father and son will cross their blades

On a flaming bat-shaped chariot
The Infernal Emperor appears
Matching his daring offspring
Waiting for Cerberus to howl

The guardian hound now screams
And swords are raised with hatred
Both forged in pain and blackness
Destined to spread the veil of Death

The battle doesn't seem to end
Such is their ferocious rage
Like hungry beasts upon their prey
No more blood ties can hide their hate

Suddenly the black-steel blade
Held by the pretender's hand
Pierces the Undead's wicked head
As dragon wings shading the sun

A wave of living darkness
Effuses from the Emperor's heart
Embraces the usurper
Absorbing his soul and blood

A triumphant voice
Now echoes in the skies

Now my son we're bound
Reborn into the Black
Masters of the Cosmos
Now my son we're one
8. Spiritdance (6:25)
I travelled through the eyes of the Necroscope
Into the realm where marble tombs lay open
Where Death and Decay hold their thrones
And sorrow chants her funeral song
A weird sweet music fills the air
As shadow forms gather in circles
And it is nighttime, so cold, so dark
When spirits start their dance macabre
Ghostly dancers whirling around
Their lips move in silence
And there is death in their eyes
A young couple waltzes among the gravestones
(holding goblets of silver in their hands)
Together they drink as the music plays on
Together they die poisoned by their own hands
Beside a grey mausoleum
Two duellists fence with etherial blades
And as the sword pierces the heart
A misty veil enshrouds them both
A man whose faithless wife betrayed his love
Slays the unwary lovers onto their bed of lust
As a poet of unsound mind ends his damned being
Giving his life for the glory of the black art
Centuries of spectral agony and pain
Performed like a drama before my eyes
In the first light of day the spirits disappear
In a haze of ghostly mist shimmer away
Until the next time they replay their deaths
