The Heresy of an Age of Reason Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Ceased, to Decay (4:50)
Into the labyrinth of severed world!
Wherein the truth of death lies spoken in demon word
Worlds laden with fear undefiled conjured ages ago
Amongst decayed ruins of the worn labyrinth path

From the essence heart of the labyrinth old
Appears the shell of an ancient statue
Which by entering unlocketh a distant secret
To the heart of darkness in gothic earth
The darkening that plagues the realm of the ancient statue

Strange, wondrous dimensions
For thee I rise my soul
Unravel the mysteries
Provide me the entry
For I eternally desire
The step into this world

To reside beyond the death gate cycle
Fears and desires of imagely sculpture
I shred my human disguise
And tread into the ancient statue
Ceased, to decay!

From the death gate cycle I face the dark sea
By the dawning of a new age
The black waters drains me
Stalk upon the ancient statue

The netherworlds stood open

I am the guardian of the death gate cycle
The messenger that brought back it's call
The truth of death lies open
By the demons speech of dead world
To reside beyond the death gate cycle
2. Ex Opere Operatu (6:42)
Within the silvery domain of mind
Thou hast seen the land of vast realm
Wistful the thoughts of a time yet to come
Wistfully curious can no longer deny
Embraced by darkness as thou gain limited sight
Thou hast found the one way, the key to the arcane realm
Gaze into that darkly splendid world
Swirl therein with sightless eyes

Driven by passion and curiousness
Follow the way, the heart of sin
To desiderated flesh
The way of the heart, the way of the flesh
The way of the will to create!

Wilt thou ever find the treasures thou seeketh
...wilt thou ever reach the realm thou hast seen?

Beyond the deepest soil of pictorial cycle
Beyond the pale which blackness embrace
The left hand path delusory stir
As thou hast reached the silvery domain
Inherit the powers of the creator
For victory of the will is the conqueror's quest
The way of the heart, the way of the flesh
The twain in longing
Ex opere operatu

Embraced by darkness as thou gain limited sight
Thou hast found the one way, the key to the arcane realm
Gaze into that darkly splendid world
Swirl therein with sightless eyes

Driven by passion and curiousness
Follow the way, the heart of sin
To desiderated flesh
The way of the heart, the way of the flesh
The way of the will to create!
3. Disguised as Beings of Light (5:42)
As midnights constellations
Gather from unnatural brilliance
Collecting the pieces
In which all burn

Within death's darkly curtained halls
I've learned to know the desert ways
Whose wrath and hate i've sworn to tell
But sure with patience can bear
Alas, lessening from dazzled sight
Arose, midst the twilight pathways

As midnights constellations
Gather from unnatural brilliance
Where are they now
Lost, long gone by

Disguised as beings of light

Bear the grandeur with a disdainful smile
As the fire now is grown cold
Thought and form crumbling to dust
Seals up all in the rest
Yet what shadows they cast
As we tore ourselves asunder

We tore ourselves asunder

Ruined, emptied of virtue
Shattered and set free
Released from the pale
To ponder the darkness

As midnights constellations
Gather from unnatural brilliance
Where are they now
Lost, long gone by

Yet what shadows they cast
As we tore ourselves asunder
In the dead embers
All burn!
4. The Heresy of an Age of Reason (7:34)
A chronicle of wasted time
Rendered senseless sceptre and crown
But still more majestic
Where no sun to shine

Much of madness and more of sin
The heresy of an age of reason
Blasphemy to senses of man
Thrust the weak to the wall

Shrine of loathesomeness
Cradle of mankind
Forger of images
Downbreaker
Bring fear in the hearts of all

Wander about in the dead of night
Will ask nothing yet would ask so much
The eye of the throne telleth it not
For those who dwell, who dwell alone

Dwell alone

A loss I can never know
The heresy of an age of reason
Still more majestic of madness and of sin

Much of madness and more of sin
The heresy of an age of reason
Blasphemy to the senses of man
Thrust the weak to the wall
5. Mere Are They… (4:12)
The tomb of man is the splendour of death

Trod their ways, walk the accursed path
Swirl towards the dying
For death the ultimate reality
Hides the claws which well can be used

With a mask of will
A recollecting mask
Of how learning to spread the wings
To feel the soul
To unmake old realms
To plague the world of man

Raised like dust but fleshed as no dust is
Awaiting redemption of dark ways
Yet what keeps me here is what glows beyond
That of malice which quiver when touched

The tomb of man is the splendour of death

I haul the black future towards us
Though leaving no traces in the corner of dawn
The aged earth aghast
It's ceaseless roaring ever fills the timeless skies
Yet leaving no traces in the corner of dawn
6. Tyrannize (5:21)
What has in truth already vanished is never to return
What once has failed will not rise again, fallen forever

Heavens gate will fall, the creations will undo
And from the heights, the reign of antichrist
Spawns the seed source of evil
Raise the beasts upon the face of the earth
Mayest the angels fall when demons rise

Angels fall when demons rise
The rise and the fall!

For endless years, will hold the famed torch
In it's name evil ruin shalt fall on the "great"
It's the fiend that shalt cause the infernal terrors
Of him who rules on the most terrible throne ever known

Angels fall when demons rise
The rise and the fall!

The reign of antichrist
Spawns the seed source of evil
Raise the beasts upon the face of the earth
Angels fall... demons rise

Sacerum Opulentus Obscurus Obviam
The great king of terror has come
Malum Accedo Quam Coelestis Exercitus Mortuum
Too great a faith shall betray the monarch

The reign of antichrist
Spawns the seed source of evil
Raise the beasts upon the face of the earth
Angels fall... demons rise

For endless years behold the famed torch
As evil ruin fell beyond the comprehensions of man
Infernal breeding with terror crushed, teared that heart from out of the breast
Released the chains of the defeater's scorn, to death decreed
By crucifix thou wilt cross what we triumphantly won
Death creator, demon spawn, angels whisper now forlorn
7. The Enigma of the Fall (5:48)
Subvert the will of millions
In dread and potent name
For faceless fools forges
The enigma of their fall
As hierarchy of selves
Whose blindness is enlightenment
As foulness you shall know them
Struck pale with fear

Devourer of the flesh of man
Haunter of hideous lair
Destroyer of worlds

A discourse of apparitions
Versed in the art of shudden

Subvert the will of millions
In dread and potent name
For faceless fools forges
The enigma of their fall
As hierarchy of selves
Whose blindness is enlightenment
As foulness you shall know them
Struck pale with fear

Devourer of the flesh of man
Haunter of hideous lair
Destroyer of worlds

As fugitive slaves are branded
Ravenously reap great ruin
Earth's last moaning breath
Lies in the throes of death

A discourse of apparitions
The world shall be undone!
8. The Dead Live / Shining Crown of Night (7:59)
And all was chaos
That who beholds shall perish
With a roar, with a curse
Amid desolate places
Cold but burning
And all was chaos still

Where you gaze the dead live
Oh shining crown of night
Rises with splendour
Shining crown of night

Struck by the presence of time
The nauseating taste of life
The coming of the greater
The fall of man

Herald of the baneful storm
That which eternally lie
Beheld by the eye of the scryer
Yet dreaming, yet dead
Accursed bonds dissolve
And all was chaos still

Ever remain locked in impenetrable darkness
The present days are over

Where you gaze the dead live
Oh shining crown of night
Rises with splendour
Shining crown of night
