Unhallowed Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Unhallowed (1:59)
2. Funeral Thirst (3:55)
The brightest full moon light entrances me
It calls me forth
Yet I have not the strength to move
In stasis I rot away and dream
I dream of forgotten years
Dream the touch of another's hand
I am to be a meal of the starved worms
My nerves are twisting for the light of my salvation
I rest beneath where i remain as cold as clay
This eternal pain is swelling in my joints

Somewhere with me a flame is slowly born
Inside this shell of bloated flesh grows life anew infernal the moon distorts my mind
My veins jolt back to life, pushing the fluids of the damned

I seek to bathe my fetid flesh in crimson spray
My body writhes without consent of conscious
I lift the lid the pounds of dirt shall not subdue
I shall walk the earth once more

From beyond the strings are pulled
I know not what has made this way
Animation of my rigid corpse
I shall abandon my coffin of premature fate

All the words of the preacher
All the tears of my family in vain
I shall again walk amongst them
My penance with blood be repaid

A dead hand grasps for the still night air
I am now free to maim
There cannot be a god for he would not forgive this Despicable inhuman monster rotten twisted and deformed
I am now a tool of my unholy instinct
Entrails strewn at my bidding
A mockery of all I was
3. Elder Misanthropy (2:34)
Wisdom infinite held tightly in my grasp
My sword one thousand battles strong
Ageless I remain beyond the reach of death indebted by my soul

I have witnessed the birthing of your faith
The tribulations, the driving of the stake
So slowly this immortal coil unwinds
Until the end the end of fucking time

The blood of the ancients idols burning through my veins
The blood of gods man's never known.
I am the one who cannot die,
I am the the killer for all time,
Seeds of infinite hate I've sown,

I walk the earth enshrouded in its darkness eclipsing I claim the flesh of man
Ageless I remain with vengeance on my breath revolted by the meek

I have witnessed the birthing of your faith
The tribulations the driving of the stake
So slowly this immortal coil unwinds
This crumbing world has become mine

I've seen the creation of this world
And I'll see it all reduced to ash
In the blink of a sunken eye
I see one hundred winters pass
My blessing, my curse
Perpetually I'm damned to earth
Of a soul I am bereft
Forever dying to be dead

Slipping through centuries untouched by human love
Void of the simple pleasures that human life provides
Forever bound I lie in wait undying and insane
4. Contagion (3:23)
Jaws dripping with disease
Fingers for the use of weaponry
The mind spins in a fervour of murder's design Unleashing our buried primal desires

Return to instincts we had lost
Our blades shall speak with eloquence what human words cannot

Terror a world of terror we create
Maddening howls fill the streets as further spreads the plague

Gone the affinity to modern man
His wavering faith falls to ravenous hands
Unbridles malevolence reaches a boil
As the strivings of mankind dissolve into fire

The will to conquer suffocates
A trail of shredded carcasses our morals dissipate

Now the end is drawing nearer
Upheaval is at hand
Animalistic biddings
A reverse evolution of man

Terror a world of terror we create
Maddening howls fill the streets as further spreads the plague

Children we are the children of the beast
When instinct counters reasoning our rage shall be unleashed

The dreams of man engulfed in fire
This world heap of burning flesh
The end is baring down upon us
The god of mortals lying dead
5. When the Last Grave Has Emptied (3:11)
Inhuman the mounting of a tragedy macabre
Resurrection of the fallen the undead start to rise driven by hunger or vengeance
We're left with little time to question the motives of the damned

We turn to science to make the puzzle whole
What lies beyond those hollowed eyes
We'll be defeated destroyed by our own ghosts

When the last grave has emptied
When the last shred of hope melts away
An endless swarm of damnation
Will swallow the last of humanity into the black

In hiding our dwindling numbers rush to find a cure the laws of reason are dissolving into never ending night

Mere shadows of their former selves
We fall to our friend and foe alike
We stand abandoned by our gods
Backed into corners, there's nowhere left to hide

The soils of hell shall keep them coming
Our feeble planet overrun with the legions of the dead

Fits of hysteria have claimed the hearts of man
The panic-ridden are consumed their bones dry in the sun
The zombies multiply with haste
The streets are stained with human waste
6. Thy Horror Cosmic (2:56)
Lord below, your abysmal horrors we call forth
Awaken -- rise up and cleanse this earth with fire

The taste of victory awaits our wicked tongues
As you sleep beyond the light your blessed idol acts agent to your will

For vast aeons has slept, lurking 'neath the haunted deep
Sea soaked perversion, arise
Named of the foulest tongue, his will ebbs within me
Beckoning -- what was shall once more be

In the house of the dead you lie and wait
Oh lords of black earth
Contorting the minds of the meek
Staining this planet with visions of murder and hate

For vast aeons has slept, lurking 'neath the haunted deep
Sea soaked perversion, arise
Named of the foulest tongue, his will ebbs within me
Beckoning -- what was shall once more be

We pray for the earth to open
Free you of your ageless tomb
Our knees bent in your worship
Oh great old one, I scream for your return

Madness unhallowed
Ascending moon of darkness never to wane
Lurking without end
Behind life in time and space

An evil so vast
Beyond man's power to bear
An essence insane
Dethrone the sovereign -- and with your might reclaim

I serve allegiance to your will
I scream the incantations
Lord unholy, your horrors I invoke

Come forth my lord
In praise we sing of your return
7. The Blackest Incarnation (4:43)
I awaken deep in the grasp of frozen pines
Not a shred of clothing yet I feel no cold
The woods envelope my soul
Perception multiplies
My sense heighten to extremes

My heart beat ever increasing
The only sound aside from the wailing of the wind Through the trees

I know no fear
The boundaries of mortal human flesh have abandoned me as I am renewed
I have dreamt of such a mutation for countless winter nights
My essence became that of a beast
I gracefully cut through the forest
Shedding my former husk
Unfettered by the hindrances of past

My purpose manifests I am void of delusion
I am born into this wolfen form in seek of human flesh

Lead by vampiric hunger
I will to feast upon the bones of the meek
The marrow of my enemies

Lusting to be bathed in the blood of a child
To quench my maw with shreds of virgin flesh
To tear apart he who i once was
To rid the world of his feeble lies

For days I travel north, leaving a trail of hollowed bodies, in my frigid wake
Finding my way back home to stalk amongst the feeble mortals
In the clothing of a sheep
Envenomed I am the blackest incarnation
The end of their disease

On my arrival vengeance swings a heavy hand crushing the will of god

For countless winter nights I have dreamt of such a day
I'd watch the humans crawl 'neath a swirling din of pain

The plight of all creation
The fall of their existence
Extinction the will of humanity
Forsaken by my hand

Oh weep the angels shall be destroyed
As claws remove their wings
Jaws sodden in the purest blood
In the purest fucking blood I bathe

This blackened hand shall reap
Shall reap insurmountable
Undying cleaving the sickly hearts of mortals true earth falls as heaven shall
Crumbing as god has taken knee and felt his creations pain
The humans fucking pain

Our lord has birthed the perfect evil unto this fragile earth
The sands of time now weigh against you
pounding your weathered backs
Impending dread is cast upon you to swallow whole your faith
The boundaries of your mortality are the only remorse you'll be shown
I arrive unwritten to blacken the work of your lord your god so feeble allowed for this end to be born your god so feeble to be trampled beneath my wrath

To die crushed beneath my fist
To fall as heaven shall

My purpose manifests, I am void of delusion
I am born into this wolven form in seek of human fucking flesh.
8. Hymn For the Wretched (4:18)
We are the blackness of the night
Cold wind that cuts your flesh
We are the enemy praying for your certain death
We are what was, will be forevermore
In the stillest hours we awaken, enshrouded in the dark

Children of the blackest seed
Reared on murder and deceit
We are the thorns of human woe
His will be done

To the humble maggots
To the putrid flies
Where death and hatred lurk
We shall survive

To the diseases
To the sharpest knives
When daybreak no more comes
We shall arise

We are the sickness, the stench of the deceased
Your father's secret shame
Our violent wrath shall be unleashed
We feast on blood and the weakness of your kind
From the haunted depths we have arisen to slither as the snake

Children of the blackest seed
Reared on murder and deceit
We are the thorns of human woe
His will be done

To the humble maggots
To the putrid flies
Where death and hatred lurk
We shall survive

To the diseases
To the sharpest knives
When daybreak no more comes
We shall arise

Lurking legion of the obscene
Unheard forever in between
Unbound
The liars in wait
Our being you forsake

Whispers upon the winds, profane
Unheard, the wretched and the insane
Unbound, forgotten, ignored
The ugliness abhorred

[solo]

The razor; the bullet; the length of rope
Our tools are numerous, our hatred overflows
The razor; the bullet; the length of rope
A lapse of sanity plummets to earth below

We are the blackness of the night
Cold wind that cuts your flesh
We are the enemy praying for your certain death
We are what was, will be forevermore
In the stillest hours we awaken, enshrouded in the dark

We are the sliver in your god's feeble hand
During the silent hours, the shadows we command
We're the undying insect, from the deepest cracks we came
For aeons we have lurked and for aeons we shall remain!
9. Closed Casket Requiem (4:26)
Dear diary, tonight will be our last
My hands are itching for razors
My angel, this knife shall carve thee wings
Consumed by sickness, I ache to see your blood
The hour approaches when I shall lay a nest inside of you

Sliced open I lay waste to my desires
Sweet entrails are scooped onto the tile

And in my dreams I hold your head beneath the waves
After you've died, I kiss the nape of your porcelain neck
You enter me in death's perpetual embrace
Skin tightens in the throes of lust

And in my dreams I cut your mouth from ear to ear
Dissecting your angelic body in the quiet of your room
How splendidly I carve into your tender heart
Shuddering between the sheets

For weeks I've watched you, perched above your sleeping form
As I caress your perfection
My angel, I'll tear your insides out
My mind is flooding, the marrow of your bones
I cannot subside 'til I have suckled every inch of you

Your features now glazed in your own blood
My fingers find home amongst your guts

And in my dreams I hold your head beneath the waves
After you've died, I kiss the nape of your porcelain neck
You enter me in death's perpetual embrace
Skin tightens in the throes of lust

And in my dreams I cut your mouth from ear to ear
Dissecting your angelic body in the quiet of your room
How splendidly I carve into your tender heart
Shuddering between the sheets

Whisper your name as you awaken your throat gasps, your skin recoils
We shall be intertwined, entangled in our love
Murder beckons as time stops with your voice

"I'll love you forever" -- and forever it shall be
The knives begin singing, they're weeping for your flesh

The pinnacle of obsession is clawing at the fibres of my mind
The rampant state of elation is heightened by the paleness of your cries
With a promise of absolution, my thoughts are tangled in my creations
With a promise of unequalled pleasure, reason is twisting
The knives are crooning for this perfect end

For weeks I've watched you, perched above your sleeping form
As I caress your perfection
My angel, I'll tear your insides out
My mind is flooding, the marrow of your bones
I cannot subside 'til I have suckled every inch of you

I feel the fibres stretch and tear
Unbridled climax is achieved
I've waited so long for this moment
The euphoric act of suicide -- suicide!
10. Apex (5:05)
Bury them all beneath heaping shovel fulls of lime
In shallow graves the shreds of flesh dissolve with time
The stench of burning human flesh, a makeshift cremation
A shrivelling fragment of death's grand design

I insist -- the pleasure's all mine

With orgasmic bliss the human body is consumed
The loins are charred, the slabs of mean cut off and ground
With zeal I dine upon the skin, enthralled with elation
Souls of my victims within me, entombed

Palette wet with atrocity
I relish the last look in your eyes
Clutching your intestines, your scream echoes through me
Perfection; a murder divine

I hold the secrets of the dead within my grasp
As I poke and prod, your precious world is painted black I the controlled of
Your fate, a twisted creation
Until I've met my fancy I'll hammer and hack
Palette wet with atrocity
I relish the last look in your eyes

As I'm blissfully showered in blood
I shake with violent rapture as I gaze at my delicious feast
I cannot stop my salivation
My addiction to murder has peaked
Kneel only to my sick fixations
A complete symphony of your screams

Oh the cruelty of death!
I wield infinite

Lured by the cries of your damnation
I collect ornaments of the dead
Skin tingling with anticipation
I sever the last victim's head to be put on display

This mortal coil has born unto me death's secrets
This forensic inquisition, orgasmic
Another trophy of my bloodied psychosis
Another body to mangle; to ravage and explore

Palette wet with atrocity
I relish the last look in your eyes
Clutching your intestines, your scream echoes through me
Perfection; a murder divine...

[Outro]
When the bleeding slows, preparation for decapitation can be started.
Continue the cut to the throat around the entire neck, from the jawline to the back of the skull.
Once muscle and ligament have been sliced away, the head can be cleanly removed by gripping it on either side and twisting it off, separation occurring where the spinal cord meets the skull.
This is indicative of the method to be used for dividing other bones or joints, in that the meat should generally be cut through first with a knife, and the exposed bone then separated with a saw or cleaver.
The merits of keeping the skull as a trophy are debatable for two principal reasons.
First, a human skull may call suspicious attention to the new owner.
Secondly, thorough cleaning is difficult due to the large brain mass, which is hard to remove without opening the skull.
The brain is not good to eat. Removing the tongue and eyes, skinning the head, and placing it outside in a wire cage may be effective.
The cage allows small scavengers such as ants and maggots to cleanse the flesh from the bones, while preventing it being carried off by larger scavengers, such as dogs and children.
After a sufficient period of time, you may retrieve the skull and boil it in a dilute bleach solution to sterilise it and wash away any remaining tissue.
