Sumerian Daemons Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Behold… The Land of Promise (2:10)
2. Unbeliever (4:52)
[Music: Spiros A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

Hate me
Help me
Convert my mind
Direct me to your gloom
The halls of kingdom
To the land of no return
Take me ignorant
Show me your master and creator

Take me
Take me to the tombs of your sacred relics
Where bodies bend like weak betrayers
What a fitting punisher you are
Bring your own redemption
The touch of the nails to the skin is the fruit of your love for masochism

I don't deserve your trance
I am the adversary of a dominant race of zealots
I am the kind that doubts the unreason

Unbeliever

I won't forget to ask the question before I give an answer to me
On the land of no return there are all that you can't find:
The lack of sense - The lack of anything that you can feel
I won't decide to play the master instead I chose to be
You say I am incomplete
I say I'll always be

Cover your mouth with tape
Cover your heart with pain
Cover your eyes with shame
Spend all your life in vain

I don't deserve your trance
I am the adversary of a dominant race of zealots
I am the kind that doubts the unreason

Hate me
Help me
Convert my mind
Direct me to your gloom
The halls of kingdom come
To the land of no return
Take me ignorant
Show me your master and creator

I don't deserve your trance
I am the adversary of a dominant race of zealots
I am the kind that doubts the unreason

Unbeliever
3. Virtues of the Beast (5:19)
[Music: Spiros A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

Hail to those that walk my lonely path
Bearing the mark of the chosen one
They are the cross!
They are the travellers of the plains
Common ground of all directions
They lead to me
I lead to them

Never lie to me
The father of lies
Never deny your deeper desires
To all those true to me
Their instinct and mind
I grant
The Virtues of the Beast

Forged in fire
Iron wills of warlocks and witches nourish me
With their love they heat my broken wings
Making me strong
Lifting me up
Above the dream
Blessed are the restless minds
The angel tribes: for they shall inherit the earth
Blessed are the morning stars for
They shall burn the heavens with their Luciferian light

The Virtues of the Beast

Never lie to me
The father of lies
Never deny your deeper desires
To all those true to me
Their instinct and mind
I grant
The Virtues of the Beast
4. Faust (5:09)
[Music: Chris A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

All my life I strived to gain insight to things that sacred most men
Through the dungeons of the mind I learned the tricks playing with fire
Evil wears a weird facade invented to protect man's hate
For the painful, The unknown, The feared and the forbidden

I dreamed the devil was I
My quest complete
I dreamed the devil was I
I was awake
My quest complete
Faust

Captive from philosophies that root on hopes like rotten trees
I see the hanged men on their ropes
Which harvester will rip these crops?
If their soul deserved a dime their chance is lost - No bargain now
I want now all that I can get
Riches, Power, Pleasure without end

I dreamed the devil was I
My quest complete
I dreamed the devil was I
I was awake
My quest complete
Faust
I dreamed the devil was I
Faust
5. When All is None (4:38)
[Music: Spiros A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

So they promised you the stars
The happiness of your distant hopes
But as you tried to catch the moon
Its silver cape slipped through your fingers
Fake was the dawn of their mortality
You are drowning from the flow of your emotions

When all is none

There is a miracle for every soul
An easy way to loose control
The puppeteer and his dolls entertain the frantic crown
Invisible lands your stolen laughs
When all is none

When all is none

Who would be the most competent guardian for you
Than yourself?
Always in range
Under detention even at your sleep
Your life a white chalk on a small blackboard

When all is none
Die
When all is none
6. Red Code Cult (4:09)
[Music: Sotiris V., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

Equinox is at hand
The gates are now aligned
Raise the candles in the air and give the secret sign
The temperature is dropping down
Our breath seems now like smoke
The guardians of the shadow lands blind the heathen eyes

Our mental variation: a phantom made from light
With red we paint our fantasy until it breathes with might
Deciphering the code that releases the unknown
We make the wanted possible
Material like the stone
Red code cult

Welcome to our church disciples of the jackal
Your nature is key
Now raise the veils of the misty tyranny of the fake laws
Open the Choronzone

Our mental variation: a phantom made from light
With red we paint our fantasy until it breathes with might
Deciphering the code that releases the unknown
We make the wanted possible
Material like the stone
Red code cult
7. Dark River (3:56)
[Music: Chris A. Sotiris V. Spiros A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

Can you pay the fair?
Open your mouth and spit the buried coin
The boat is ready to sail
Step inside
I am the ferryman
We'll sail the river of woe
The Dark River
Dark River
On its brink is the end of hope
The Dark River
Acheron

And a wind blew like the breath of a dying man
And the waters spawned sounds
From the motion of slimy reptile tongues

My guests are many
And they won't leave this peaceful place of fading screams
Eyes shut
Gaze mesmerized at the circular form of zero
They sailed the river of woe
The Dark River
Dark River
They found the end of hope
The Dark River
Dark River
They found the end of hope
The Dark River
Acheron

On tunnels underground
chthonian delties mock
the icons that turned blank
The shades of the once beautiful

Can you pay the fair?
Open your mouth and spit the buried coin
The boat is ready to sail
Step inside
I am the ferryman
Acheron
Dark River
Acheron
8. Magic Loves Infinity (3:58)
[Music: Sotiris V., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

Desire manifests with endeavour
A form of spiritual eroticism
Magic is a goblet that seems hollow
A fountain strives to fill It to the brim

Magic loves infinity

A masquerade of visions so profoundly loved
Shroud the murky eyes of the sorcerers
Evoked from the vortex of their mind fields
As waves they spread in circles to reach the endless sea

Magic loves infinity
9. Sumerian Daemon (4:06)
[Music: Spiros A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

On the land between the rivers
where lions fly and serpents rule
I cross the road to the ziggurat
as darkness hides the moon
I came to seek the advice of Inanna
The goddess of love and war but the path is unclear
like the words of a Seer from the movement of the dunes

Windy whisperers come
From beyond the clouds
Descend with glory to the plane earth
Gas shaped nauseous forms hide behind the storm
As scorpions blended with the yellow red sand

Before me are the steps that lead to virtual ascension
A mystical technology
The temple of dimensions
The mysteries of Sumer manifest inside the chamber
that sits upon the top of this artificial mountain

Sumerian Daemon

My veins are black from the blood of Tiamat
My eyes are wide like the wheels of space and time
My will is strong like a blow from Marduk's sword
I am no human now because I choose to know

Sumerian Daemon
10. Mechanical Babylon (4:57)
[Music: Spiros A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

A malfunction to the machine
She chews its screws of sanity
Loosing parts of human seed
As she lusts for electricity

Plastic attitude Gray emotions
Wear your cables and join with me
Boring lives in entropy
Incorporeal surgery

Environmental therapy for the genes that threat security
A new breed of mass murderers
Instructed from their parents to do the task

Mechanical our whore Babylon

The old hag looks so young in her dress of silicon
A jungle in her heart made from concrete, glass and metal

Mechanical our whore Babylon

Her kiss of methadone
is a drug that steals control
She wants clockwork toy
disconnected from the physical

Plastic attitude Gray emotions
Wear your cables and join with me
Boring lives in entropy
Incorporeal surgery

Mechanical our whore Babylon

The old hag looks so young in her dress of silicon
A jungle in her heart made from concrete, glass and metal

Mechanical our whore Babylon
11. Infernal Sun (3:26)
[Music: Sotiris V., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

Silent but not alone
You are waiting for the Dawn
To open the gates of the horizon
So that you can get through
the chasm that cuts in two
the worlds of now The worlds of even

Casting your fiery arrows
A hunter among the stars
Up from your golden chariot
You throw the spear of time

Infernal Sun

You act like a rightful tyrant
casting away the cold
Your crown is the flame infernal
Eating the heat of soul

Infernal Sun

Silent but not alone
You are waiting for the Dawn
To open the gates of the horizon
So that you can get through
the chasm that cuts in two
the worlds of now The worlds of even
12. The Watchers (4:14)
[Music: Sotiris V., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

The watchers learned to fly
and bridged the realms defined
The wealth was spreading far and wide
A sorcery divine

From the abode of heavens the seed of life was cast
Celestial orbs and fireballs from conflict fashioned lands
Nocturnal treasures glow and frozen crystals dance
The wealth was spreading far and wide
A sorcery divine

Fallen angels
They were called: the feared
The loved
The worshiped
They came to built the new empire
To make a land of promise

Protectors of the realms
These beacons in the sky
They warned about the cataclysm their sons that led mankind

Empire of the Watchers

From the abode of heavens the seed of life was cast
Celestial orbs and fireballs from conflict fashioned lands
Nocturnal treasures glow and frozen crystals dance
The wealth was spreading far and wide
A sorcery divine

The watchers learned to fly
and bridged the realms defined
The wealth was spreading far and wide
A sorcery divine
13. Shapeshifter (5:12)
[Music: Chris A., Lyrics: Sotiris V.]

The transformation of the butterfly occurs in reverse
Beauty eaten abruptly from the ancient worm
Wearing sharp shard
Stolen from scattered
Broken mirrors
As a cloak to cover me

My strange images
nest as birds to the hearts of men
And as birds fly away
Taking their thoughts into oblivion
Disintegrating the elemental bonds
I obtain the rapture of the chameleon

When I become enraged
With the frenzy of the wolf on the hunt
I am the most cherished child of fear

Armed with fangs deadly like daggers
I am an adept on the skills of murder
I am the shape shifter

On the ruins of a ghostly projection
echoes the lust for life
An ancient purgatory for the sinister

Shape shifter
