New Dark Age Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level FTN
1. New Dark Age / The Sleeping Tyrant (10:46)
(Music and lyrics by Walker)

Out of reach in realms beyond
All light and truth the hidden son
From bloodied womb father creation
Narcissus high among the suns

Under inanimate lakes of carrion pallor
Where the weight of purity bore him down
Enthroned on thorns of brimstone fury
The thief of always anoints his brow

Legion guide us, Calvary calls
Entwined in threads of earthbound lust
The blood of Hubris rising (fearful)
Cast him down, nay cast him out

Beneath sombre forest funeral half-light
And moon soaked spires of mighty oak
Titans march to summer's death throes
Valour gilded hearts to overthrow
(The Sleeping Tyrant)
2. Cimmerian Codex (9:10)
(Music and lyrics by Walker)

Forgive me father
(for I have dreamed)
Of nighted vales,
Betwixt time and light
Still falls the rain,
Silent, unclean
Unfetted, unleashed,
I sought the gate

Lascivious, beckoning,
At thresholds forbode
Satyriasis vermivorous
in shadow encloaked
Frozen in antiquity
(Mocking cruelly)
Tervous in angle
The citadels profane

Across yawning chasm of tribulation
Farewell to Sol, in perpetuam rise
(Ascension beyond) corporeal constraint
Would the glaze of Algol seat my eyes?

Winds from the black mountain rend and tear
Sepulchral thanes, so much walking dust
Ice locked the nexus, an empire awaits
Axiom abhorrent, protean triumvirate
Forgive me father (for I walk alone)
To a destiny untainted, opaque, my own
3. Alchemiculte (2:58)
(instrumental)
4. Hammer of Damnation (8:19)
(Music and lyrics by Walker)

Enjewelled the crown,
of mirrored deception
Where the serpent lay coiled,
upon Babalian tower
In charnel gardens,
spawn twelve black orchids
Colder than death,
incandescent they shine

Sentinels of stone,
Speak sweet delirium
Paragons of virtue,
With poison tongues
Ossific cathedrals
Masqued in innocence
Belie wrath Arcanum
(are we undone)

Downward Christus soldier onwards
From your twisted tower (of malice and spite)
The opiate archeus that you feast upon
Our primal lands of winter and night
Damn us all with your mercy and charity
From chaos is found, true shape and form
The inferno of summer may hold us in check
But we will awaken, no longer in thrall
5. The Anguine Rose (1:35)
(instrumental)
6. Blackthorne (5:22)
(Music by Netherwood and Ingram, lyrics by Walker)

From frozen edifice unheeded my calls
Dream silent among grey basalt halls
Neither here, nor ever, did I belong
The haunted, the hunted, still stands alone
And ice enshrined this fragile kingdom
Awoke desires of forgotten bliss
Rise to the sun then fall in anguish
Tenebrous sorrow this day would bring
Ethereal watchers with eloquence spoke
Such myriad lands now forsook
Dusk scorched orchid her sweet perfume
In carven mausolea star born consume
Tread softly for now, kin of the night
A winter moon guides to her palace of light
Granted paths to higher realm sought
On ebon wings together take flight

Rekindle tempests, enslaved by frost
Her gentle caress, a graven kiss
Such towering visions of mortality refrain
Fair Lilith be found, her hand would I claim
7. The Keep (2:00)
(Music by Ingram, lyrics by Walker)

Who watches the watchers upon lunisolar shores?
Of grim forest lake, in telluric angor
(Awake) yet I dreamt, as three suns had bade
Of wyrmtongued, lurid, ill sired scions

Who watches the watchers, who sought of their truth
A leering abyss that beckons to fools
But black pennants fly in a suffocating night
Atop a keep of lore, where hope yet shines
8. Cromlech (10:28)
(Music and lyrics by Walker)

Lend me your steel moribund man
For three suns drown a kingdom (of dusk)
And (as lost portents) three moons wane
The soil drank our blood with insatiable thirst
A mute ocean sleeps behind dormant eyes
The warrior (that was I) a shadow in stone
I was the wrath beneath the heavens
In ebon forest, upon oaken throne

I was a liege at the end of light
By alchemiculte, petrified
Circean substratum (a conflux corrupt)
Invictus (I fell to Cthonian touch)
Heinous megalithic ruins yet stand
Corvous flesh reigns in my wake
Sapient, lorn, pariah to all
Three suns would see me still unborn

(Hail! Hail!)
9. New Dark Age II / Legion XIII (15:26)
(Music and lyrics by Walker)

Beyond these mountains lay vistas of dread
Black sea of infinity herein they drift
Devolved as one atrophied architects
Cyclopean forms askew in the midst
(Of) seraphic decay, an unbeheld might
The arcane majesty a conqueror awaits

Captors of millennia cloaked in confusion
Cast ever out to the tides of time
Gathered in silent peripheral empires
(Of) dust choked oceans who sing their last
Vanquished voyagers of revelation
A brooding enigma yet still to pass

Sinistral gulfs yet may be crossed
To ophidian cowering citadels
Raptorial judgement upon all our sins
This placid island of ignorance
