Nocturnal Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Everything Went Black (3:17)
Crawling the walls through every crack
And crevice teems blackness washing over the windowpanes
Painting the buildings in between
Creeping down the alley ways consuming every street
Soundless swarm of nothingness sure to doom us all

Pulling screaming earthlings into its toothless jaws
Endlessly beginning spreading with no sign of stop
Horror of horrors truly maddening in size
Running just prolongs the end inevitably it strides

Where has it come from?
How can it be stopped?
So quickly we're to meet our end
Our empire we have lost

Karmatic armageddon
No religion could foresee
A planet once forsaken
Not even a memory

Streetlights bend into the void
Cars enveloped whole
Darkness deeper than a blindman's sleep
Soon to paint the world
Insatiable its hunger
It drinks the sea without a belch
Stretching to the other side
Where it is sure to meet itself

Unearthly vacuum devouring
The hourglass now empty its time to say goodbye
Watching your life flash before mortal eyes
Terror fills your heart screams of anguish greet your ears
Living death voracious insidious
Impervious to damage we are slaughtered as if lambs

Horror of horrors truly maddening in size
Running just prolongs the end inevitably it strides

Where has it come from?
How can it be stopped?
So quickly we're to meet our end
Our empire we have lost

Karmatic armageddon
No religion could foresee
A planet once forsaken
Not even a memory
2. What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse (3:50)
This twisted wretched place
Shadowed by the utmost darks of hell
In dreams of black beyond the bounds
Of a withered witch's spell

Where the doors surely are locked
When the sun threatens to wane
Where shamblers dwell in dim moonlight
Beyond the warmth of day

Liars line the roads at dawn
Watchful eyes are upon you held
Sacred weapons to the sacred reavealed
To be unleashed upon the council of hell

Blood flows down the streets at night
Where wolves cry out for flesh
Where a horrible curse taints the woodlands nearby
With the forms of the walking dead

Unholy inversion of hope twisting the faith of the meek into hate
Driven insane by the dark one to bring forth the foul biddings he speaks
The undead are among us at dawn they shrink back to their silken beds
They dance by night and drink the blood of a child's broken neck

His spires are growing taller
Still their shadows stretching throughout the land
Freeing the evils that sleep within the weaker minds of man

Into the tower never go the horrors multiply
Gears can mince the strongest
Ones leaving heroes paralyzed
The rivers flow with poison
The sands swallow you whole
The ghouls that roam this darkened wood
Are thirsting for your throat

Unholy inversion of hope twisting the faith of the meek into hate
Driven insane by the dark one to bring forth the foul biddings he speaks
The undead are among us at dawn they shrink back to their silken beds
They dance by night and drink the blood of a child's broken neck

His spires are growing taller
Still their shadows stretching throughout the land
Freeing the evils that sleep within the weaker minds of man
3. Virally Yours (3:02)
The sound of vomiting to my ears like singing
now I am beginning to become erect
with illness I am obsessed in the beds of the fallen I rest
a fixation amplified the smell here is what I like best

feverishly vombing the buckets of waste wrapping myself in the filth-ridden sheets
raping the shells of the comatose to fulfill my needs

photographing bedsores cultured by my sick neglect
it's more than a job it's a love for me to walk this close with death
when you hear a flat line you know surely I'll be near
to when the reaper's sickle is drawn I am ever aware

I wish I could pull these strings in death there are finer things
malpractice forever be my bitter name

how quickly life does fade away
but a flip of the river mans coin
could send you screaming to your grave

grief stricken family watches on ceaseless prayers for an only son
"I'm afraid that nothing can be done" the moment has finally come
the wrath of a god exemplified to the pearly gates he'll soon arrive
to leave here his husk in this room of white I'm quivering at thought

pull the plug I'm begging you take the ride to the cold and blue
the reapers yellowed lichen fingers aims ever so true
the orgins of disease to be witnessed in my dreams
the flooding of the blackest blood to quence my fetid needs
4. I Worship Only What You Bleed (1:59)
Oh its flowing through me combusting with contempt
rationality abandoning chemically lead astray
stepping outside the confines of this circle bane of society become
I'm about to cross the line and take a life nothing can stop me now

murderous functioning an animal within me speaks
nothing but blood could satisfy these carnal needs

I am your master superior I reign
poised just above you on this death distorted chain

the need to kill transcends temptation I'm sick and in need of blood
withdrawals haunt me taunt me sickly baiting my deeds can never be undone

I am your shepherd cloaked in obscenity heed
these sickening words I worship only what you bleed
I am your master superior I reign
poised just above you on death distorted chain
5. Nocturnal (3:13)
Between the lies our dead language tongues
before the dawns our hearts they shall hunt
the smell of blood excites the nostrils
at first cut the sanguinary worship of red

spraying punctures a sight so divine
clutching her carcass face frozen in time
a distorted dialect for the draining of veins
to the flooding of bed sheets with sick crimson rain

a warped diction of scriputres befouled
traditions steeped within disgraces reviled
father unholy one to your night realm we bow
nocturnal majesty sworn to black we'll always be

damnation's diction a deadly disclosure
our poisons in their goblets drip
how perfectly hideous so eloquently scribed
each scripture so skillfully sick

parchments scabbed over with plasmatic prose
prophesize permanent night
the words of sheer blackness paint ebony my soul
and bestow me with infernal might

a warped diction of scriptures befouled
traditions steeped within disgraces reviled
father unholy one to your night realm we bow
nocturnal majesty sworn to black we'll always be
hatred and persistence destined to see
a complete eclipse of that hated sphere the sun

by the light unspoken
this language of brutality
enraptured I have become unholy
nights arms welcome me
6. Deathmask Divine (3:37)
Removal of the eyes gives my heart a saddened chill
I preserve them in formaldehyde to gaze upon at will
How their greenish flecks befall me that starlit winters night
How I lost all that I ever was while locked within their sight

Before you sits a broken man
With your fragile pinkish heart in hand
Peculiar how it can hurt so bad
While love is only in the mind
I sew the gaping chestwork
Each thread is made with love
The bosom where I would rest
My face is covered in your blood

No, this is not the end
You'll live on eternally
Oh lord, it's not the end
My secret you'll forever be!

I interrupt this transformation a familiar lust swelling in me
A long and soulful kiss the shades are drawn the living world can't see
The coil of entrails how curious the smell
How pungent to my eager nostrils hands further compelled

No, no it's not the end,
Forever you'll be in my arms!

I could never let you go!
My darling cold and blue
I wonder are you dreaming still
Spread eagled blood removed
I weave the sucking trocar beneath your bruising skin
Tonight I'll lay beside you darling in necromantic sin

Pinned to the bed sheets like a
Prized butterfly you're mine
I hear your voice echoing so deeply inside
I did my best to love you while you did live and breathe
This tender taxidermy trophy of the bereaved

I could never let you go!
My darling cold and blue
I wonder are you dreaming still
Spread eagled blood removed
I weave the sucking trocar beneath your bruising skin
Tonight I'll lay beside you darling in necromantic sin
7. Of Darkness Spawned (3:22)
Pretenders to the throne kneel before him
Appalling wretched demon king
Praise be to us his children
Spawns of evil's reckoning

Doomed from the inception
Claiming fire as our home
Licked by flames our steel grows stronger
To be forged in hate forevermore

A hellish scorn quickly approaches violent climax
Infernal legions, the time nears when we'll strike
The shadows serving to enshroud us our blackened hearts
Those forgotten looming just beyond their sight

The blood of pariahs through our veins
Sin and Hell our mainstay, forever to remain
Oh to ye wicked ones and oh to blood a reaper's song
Demons born of man's sickest desire

Those of the darkness spawned
Fires of Hell I stoke thee high
Through the open gates ever so wide, bury me in sin
The daggers have been raised, now let's begin

The margins of sanity blur into night
As one will move beyond the light
Murder effortlessly without a tear
Our motives to them never clear

Damn this liars' world, we are the truth you've all awaited
Impaling holy fallacy, the filthy blood of Christian seed
Akin to the looming serpent, we've patiently anticipated
The time to rise is upon us

My lord, I kneel before you, now paint me bloody red
Bathing in blasphemy, I beat the path that's traveled less
The forgotten, your minions, our souls of black
We are thousands in the darkness waiting to attack

Infernal legions, their heads shall be your prize
Trophies to our dominions of conquests only fantasized
Oh to ye wicked ones and oh to blood a reaper's song
Demons born of man's sickest desire

Those of the darkness spawned
Fires of Hell I stoke thee high
Through the open gates ever so wide
Bury me in sin, the daggers have been raised

Oh the dance of death, she's a sweet one
To our victory we will drink
8. Climactic Degradation (2:39)
Devastate,
Leave them weeping in your wake
A family's broken dreams with gloved hand I seperate
Mutilate them, carve them up, bring them to their knees
The powers of the knife at hand, if it breahtes it fucking bleeds
Mankind end time disgusted with this race
I pluck them from the universe pawns of my favourite game

Cut them all down, completely randomized
Never a clue nor trace is left identity disguised
I measure joy in suffering, with a rope and blade I maim
Humiliate these fallen souls, this earth of sick disgrace

Climactic degradation,
Rapture in blood achieved
Suffocate them,
Rip them,
Rape them,
Make them fucking scream
Orgasmic mutilation,
On terror I do feed
Annihilate this bastard race,
I'll make them bleed for me

(Solo)

I'm taking you down with me into this hell of hells
9. To a Breathless Oblivion (4:57)
The chairs been kicked a rope tied to the rafters
Blue-faced and broken necked I die
Relieving my vision from that sick fucking stare
Of that hated sun burning the sky
Slumped like a headless scarecrow, cold and limp against the wall
Blood paints a pattern of Rorschach's design
Thawing the winter that burdens this heart

Shit stained and shameful, an exit in disgrace
Not a splash but just a ripple left
I end in this life in vain, in vain

(Solo)

In the dead of the darkness, I breach the still lake
Toward the reflection of the moon
The night colored liquids arresting my lungs
Finally at peace in this watery tomb

Destroy this fragile body to be gorged upon by worms
Not a splash but just a ripple is left in the wake of merciless scorn

Beyond those cursed stars above, lies the answer that I seek
On the backs of bullets rides my name, longing to kiss my cheek
Resentfully decline, retire this hated life
Without guilt I break these veins, carved with salvation's knife

(Solo)
10. Warborn (4:40)
Amidst a swirling din of smoke and screaming on the battlefield, born reared on the teat of my dear mother war.
Hardened to stone through abuse, mocked, beaten, and scorned a bayonet severed umbilical cord.

The wind sings its sad lullaby through a blackened and hollowed ribcage. I'm to die in battle, divine with the flames as my grave. This realm of inhuman carnage where the blood eternally rains. To my brothers who've fallen before me, I will walk with you again.

[Solo]

This, my demented playground, the horizon is howling ablaze. A skeletal village illuminates the sky as fire consumes their grains. With glee I rape and torture, my pleasure is inflicting pain. With a vigor unholy, I'll fight to my doom 'til I've vanquished the Christian god's ways.

Oh it must be such a different world to which those on the outside exist. At least I know who loves me here, no delusions, all weakness dismissed. An era of inhuman tragedy to be ushered by my iron hand. The oven's bellowed to crematory high to dispose of the god-fearing man.

The wind sings its sad lullaby through a blackened and hollowed ribcage. I'm to die in battle, divine with the flames as my grave. This realm of inhuman carnage where the blood eternally rains. To my brothers who've fallen before me, I will walk with you again
