Visions of Eden Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Immortal I Stand (The Birth Of Adam) (6:33)
[GOD:]
When first there was Fire, Water and Air
All boiling together, a mass of despair
Enthroned in the Maelstrom, hurling Atoms with Night
My Thought pierced the Tempest...
Now let there be Light!
Born in Fire, Earth & Dust
Born in Sun to be the Savior, Savior...

[ADAM:]
IMMORTAL I STAND
Before God A Man
Immortal & Brave no Fear of the Grave
I will reveal the Flesh in your Word... IMMORTAL I STAND!

[GOD:]
Watch as I fashion Him from the Dust
Born in my Image, Endowed with my Trust
A living reflection of higher ideals
Sublime perfection... Adam Revealed

Born of Fire, Earth & Clay
Born in Sun to Rule The Day

[ADAM:]
IMMORTAL I STAND
Before God A Man
Immortal & Brave no Fear of the Grave
I will reveal the Flesh in your Word... IMMORTAL I STAND!

[GOD:]
"No Fear of the Grave, no fear of the Dark,
All Life from a Spark
The Rites of the Son, the Dream Flesh begun,
A Union of One..."

Summon the Mighty Forms below...
Enter the silent streets to save us... save us

[ADAM:]
IMMORTAL I STAND
Before God A Man
Immortal & Grand the Soul of your plan

[GOD:]
"The Son is the Eye and Soul of the World
My voice resides within!!!

[ADAM:]
IMMORTAL I STAND
Before God A Man
IMMORTAL I AM - A Sword in your hand
IMMORTAL I STAND
Before God A Man
IMMORTAL I AM - your son to command
I will reveal the Flesh in your Word...

I will be the Sword within your hand!
2. Adorned With The Rising Cobra (9:40)
[GOD:]
Long I wandered through Night Eternal
Forged as One with the Dark
Wild Orchid... Serpent Sunrise
Damn the Horns of the Moon

Fierce your Eyes open grave incisions
Pale and Strange in your Face
Tempting torture, rape desire
Dreams are born in this Place

Rise you're mine, be Free
A Vision of my Black Deeds
Your taste... embrace... that which remains Unseen...

[LILITH:]
By The Tigris, by Euphrates
By the Lives that we've known...
Frightened boy child... kill what you love
Spirits War in your Soul
Fierce your Mind opens... Stranger Prisons
Fear & Lust rule your Face

[GOD:]
Fortune's Fire, rape desire

[LILITH:]
Dreams are torn in this Place

[GOD:]
Rise to know your place
Forever on your knees
Your Face erase 'til nothing remains...

[GOD & LILITH:]
Run from my arms... don't run from my arms

[GOD:]
Sleep and forget you were born

[LILITH:]
Fear not my face or my Savage Grace
All become numb with the Dawn...
Don't try to hide from my Savage Heart

[GOD & LILITH:]
How to unlearn all the things we have learned
Mind searing thoughts cold are our Hearts

[LILITH:]
How to unlearn all the things I have learned... Yea!

[LILITH:]
To wear the crown of Whore
Or touch Eternity's Stare
Love is cold it tastes of Hell
Beseeching me there...
I am waiting
I am waiting here... (for another year...)
Slaving... like the Shrouds of Tears
Waiting for all who've lost their way... you'll see them now...
You'll see their mounds...
All their tears are Burning down
Silver Fortune awaits
I am Fallen like the Crowd's own Fear... (and the First Formed Tear...)
Callin' a Thousand Worlds draw near
Silent when all is Scarred Love awakes

[GOD & LILITH:]
Enter the Realm above

[LILITH:]
Wild-born I'll teach you the Secrets of Wisdom

[GOD:]
To order the night, a Prison Above

[LILITH:]
Behold the Secrets of the Earth
For this is not Life
And this is not Death
These are things we made unseemly...

[GOD:]
And this Black Fortune's debt... to never return... again... NEVER!

[GOD:]
Long I wandered through Nights Eternal...
Forged as one with the Dark
Rising up through Serpent Sunrise
I can't see where we are
Fierce your eyes open Paler Prisons
Blood looks Strange in our Face
Tempting torture, rape desire

[GOD & LILITH:]
Dreams are torn in this Waste

[GOD:]
Rise to know your place
Forever on your knees

[LILITH:]
I recall every Flame Vow

[GOD & LILITH:]
Run from my arms... don't run from my arms
Sleep and forget you were born

[LILITH:]
Rise Babylon, break from your God
All become One with the Dawn
Don't try to lie
To my Tragic Heart
How to unlearn all the things I have learned
Raise Babylon safe from your God!

[GOD & LILITH:]
How to unlearn all the things WE DON'T KNOW!!!
Oh... Will we never learn...?
3. The Inefable Name (7:48)
[LILITH:]
I RISE!

Weak willed Tyrant, lump of clay
I despise you and will not obey...Divine Commands...
Side by side, back to back dual Shadow
Yourself you Attack!

Restrain your passion or weep for the Dawn
Return me the Grace now for which I was born

I rise across the Ocean cast a Magick Spell
Armed with the Power of Life, Death & Hell
Charmed with Magick, Divine my Skin
Your Lion knoweth nothing of where I begin

Serpent's bite, Sovereign Might shakes with the Power of my Works
Unending Fire, pains conspire I stole the Secret of God's... INEFFABLE NAME!

Rise up with Magick Spells beholden to no one
I live for the memory of the Purest Light
Gliding above this Place I'm leaving this Paradise
Armed with the Knowledge of my Sacrifice

You Gods don't provoke me and withdraw your scorn
Return to your Sovereign and bear this along

I ride across the Ocean cast a Magick Spell
With Fear, Force & Fire, yes I know you well
Glowing Magick, under my Skin
Your Lion knoweth nothing of my Origin

Rise in Power, or cast down in Flame
I know the Power of your Name
Serpents Wise, Reign of Lies
I own the Power of Your INEFFABLE NAME...
Oh the Power of the Name...I KNOW YOUR NAME!!!
Your Name... I know Your Name...

I fly from thee... Authority, your lies to me, I am called freedom
Invoking the Circle of Starlight
Nothing will hinder my rise!!! Watch... look out... I'll take your eyes

Rising above the Stars
I'm leaving this Paradise, escaping the bonds of this Wicked Crowd
Your God thinks He's Light alone, creating Himself from Self
The Gods don't know... my sacred flight... No way... But I Know!

Wait... out of my way...
I'll take your Name, I'll take your Eyes... Horus... awake! Yea... Watch me fly!

Rise up with Magick Spells beholden to no one
I live for the memory of the Purest Light
Gliding above this place, I'm leaving this Paradise
Armed with the knowledge of my Sacrifice...
BUT I KNOW!!! OH... The Power of the Name...

Azag galra sugbi mu unna te, Namtar galra zibi mu unna te
(Return now to your state of Dreaming, your God won't hinder my brazen flight)
4. Black Light On Black (7:03)
"From out of the North Black Evil Breaks Forth"

I should have killed you where you stood
Brother when I had the chance
Underneath these signs of Love
I pronounce you both Accursed!
Grief is...Knowing there was Time...
Hell is hoping to Believe and a Crime
Under Sullen Skies of Fire
I will leave you with this Black Poem...

**ck you Adam,
**ck you Eve
**ck your God and his Infernal needs
**ck your Children Poison seed
Like a cancer you'll conceive

Hell's incantations follow this curse
Spells incantations swallow this curse
Hell's incantations follow my curse
Tragedy falls on us all...yea...Tragedy...

What choice is this? Drags you down... you destroy Paradise...
Dark as the wind (A Ruin within a Ruin)...
BLACK LIGHT ON BLACK... I come! Follow my Curse!

In the Dark core of your Being... know that I am Thou.

Fall from Grace...
What choice is this?... In the Dark Core of your being, Dark am I...
BLACK LIGHT ON BLACK...
Immaculate Misconception... Fall from Grace... Beating...
Your Pride withers your Wings... You will Fall far... Lost now, you're the
Ruin of
Your Race... the Ruin of your Race... all turns to nothing... All choices die!

Dead you hunger for Life
Spurning flesh you deny your Divine Wealth and stare
Cursing all that we share... torn by Dreams of Despair... Why!
You coward, you Liar, you're the ruin of your Race

For what price do you forfeit your Wings
And the Sunlight of Freedom in the Air,
Born of Despair, born of Fire and Intricate God-Light
Now, now you are torn, torn from our World for Death and Destruction
Lost, poor faithless fool you conspire Permanent Midnight for us all...

Grief is... Knowing there was Time...
Hell is hoping to Believe and a Crime
Under Sullen Skies of Fire I will leave you with this Dead, Black Poem...

**ck you Adam,
**ck you Eve
**ck your God and his Infernal needs
**ck your Children Poison seed
Like a cancer you'll perceive...

Hell's incantations follow this curse
Hell's incandescence shadows my loss
Hell's fornications follow my Curse
Tragedy falls on us all... for us all!!!
Leave me raving!

6. Angel Of Death (8:37)
[LILITH:]
While the Sea is burning Red...
They've found me here... bitter time...

[BLACK ANGELS:]
How to bleed a Noble Brow...
To catch them all where I hide...

[LILITH:]
For now I sleep in Hell far, far from Light
God will never heal our vast despite
To fight against this crime
I'll find my way...

[BLACK ANGELS:]
While the Rivers overflow
To murder more but not to die...
When your Shapes of Doom arise
We'll kill your Sons... they will die...

[LILITH:]
NO!!! The Sins of their Father's I will assail
Where you lie sleeping the Ghost of Life

[BLACK ANGELS:]
NO... you will remain here
He'll make you return

[LILITH:]
But I will not answer, for I know the Words...
Yes I know the Name!!!

High Above where the Sunlight rips the Sea
I am Free!
I will Kill for I'm Holier than Thou
I am Wise!

[BLACK ANGELS:]
Your God's not forgiving
He'll leave you in shame

[LILITH:]
But I know the one Charm
For I know the Name! Yeow! Be gone!

[BLACK ANGELS:] Remember your Passion, remember your Oath

[LILITH:]
Remember your answer
For this is not real... no this is not real!!!

High Above where the Sunlight rips the Sea
I am Free!
I will Kill for I'm Holier than Thou
I will rise!

[BLACK ANGELS:] Cry out for Mercy he'll leave you in chains
[LILITH:] The Black Winter Forest is calling my Name!!!

High Above where the Sunlight rips the Sea
I am Free!
I will rise like the Hammer of the Sky
Armed with Wine...
I will Kill for I'm Holier than Thou
I am wise...
I will rise like the Hammer of the Night
ALL WILL DIE!

Negoium Perambulans Ini Tenebris...
Ahhh... kill...
7. God Above God (7:13)
[LILITH:]
Why should I become the Dark Queen
And how shall I become this Black thing
My Holy Blood turned to bitterness
Before the first Oceans... or the Mountains were born
I stood beside Your with Wisdom Adorned
Our Sacred Vows made Earth's Kingdom rise...

I am the trees woven in through the sky
I am the Law of the Love that can't die
Caressed by the Clouds I walk with Wind & Stars

I ordered the paths of the Black Sun & the Moon
But Now I am vanquished oh... raped, ravaged & ruined
Wild and Untamed I roamed the Earth free
Your Virgin Mary is only a Shadow of me

Is this your Will... oh... my Violation?
Nature betrayed Love's Immolation

GOD ABOVE GOD, release me from this Fate
GOD ABOVE GOD release me from all this Rage
Or My Sword shall drink much Blood in the Heavens
Your Angels will know the Rage of Creation
Why should I become this?
How shall I ever become clean?
Oh become clean again? Never... oh you're murdering me...

Now nothing remains of my works but burnt stone
My voice is stilled... division is sown
What once was Self is now Enemy
Rape, Force and Violence are your new Trinity

Is this your Will Divine Emanation?
Nature betrayed Love's Immolation... Annihilation...

GOD ABOVE GOD, release me from this Fate
GOD ABOVE GOD release me from all this Rage
Or My Sword shall drink much Blood in the Heavens
Your Angels will know the Rage of Creation
Why should I become this?
How shall I ever become clean?
Oh become clean... You have murdered me... Why do you hate me?
For all of your Passion, all your Fate
you come to death knowing one massive hate
8. The Hidden God (6:51)
[SAMAEL:]
I AM HERE! OH YES!!!
And the Dark Waters stirred with the sound of her calling
Wrapped in Black Luminescence & Clouds I appear
Feel me plunder in sleep where nobody knows
I am calling you back!

Blood to Blood, Bone to Bone
Skin to Skin and Sin to Sin
Demon Night, Frost and Fire
Turn me on to Rape Desire

Spill the Blood of your kin
Rejoice in the Madness you win
Wallowing into the Fire
Drawn to my Hellish Mire
THE HIDDEN GOD..HIDDEN GOD...

In your eyes I can see where the Thunder is calling
Storm Clouds gather a Feast for the Wrecking of you
Drip your blood on the shaft of my swollen desire
That's burning & yearning to blister your womb
I am calling you back...

Blood to Blood, Bone to Bone
Skin to Skin and Sin to Sin
Demon Night, Frost and Fire
Turn me on to Rape Desire

Spill the Blood of your King
Rejoice in the Madness it brings
Wallowing into the Fire
Drawn to my Hellish Mire
Dishonored and cast from the Sun
Straight into my Arms you will run
Nurturing insults and grief
Embracing new forms of believe

For the Soul of a Black Dragon King
For the Heartache & Madness you bring
I harrow the Vines of your bleeding
To the One who will know from before
To notice the Way that blights your way home
I cry to the One who's in Chains

[LILITH:] I cry to the One who's in Flame

[SAMAEL:] Forget how you fell... Paradise is something to Fear

[LILITH & SAMAEL:] Paradise is... Fear!!! AHHH!!!

[SAMAEL:]
I am the Darkness that lives in the Sea...
From Rocks I have ripped bleeding Darkness to warm you
Rend your garments tear your hair... open wide... I AM IN!!!
Nobody **cks like you anymore... Let's cum together

And the Dark Waters stirred with the sound of her calling
Wrapped in Black Luminescence & Clouds I appear
Feel me plunder in sleep where nobody knows
I am calling you back!
Back to the Wolves...

Blood to Blood, Bone to Bone
Skin to Skin and Sin to Sin
Demon Night, Frost and Fire
Turn me on to Rape Desire

Spill the Blood of your King
Rejoice in the Madness it brings
Wallowing into the Fire
Drawn to my Hellish Mire
Days of Darkness and Fear
Let your Talons appear
I will bring you Hatred's Sire
The Wine the Planets Conspire
9. Childslayer (5:22)
[ADAM:]
God of Anger, God of Hate
Burn alive her Fate
Blast aside the Abyss let the Dead be raised
I can hear their Crying in the Wind
I call to Honor their pain
Hatred rise on you fly into the Mist of Voices

Attack now in Fury
Absolution Shines
The End of the World awaits, for all your bitter kind
Lies conceal you Howling in the Wind
I Burn your Altars Black ground
High you fly soon you'll die upon your Mystic Island
Rise above Fortune's might with all your tragic flaws

CHILDSLAYER, CHILDSLAYER... Fall to your knees in the sight of the Goddess
Rise out in Fury I denounce your flight
Fearing your Gods New Age
Scorching the Funeral Faith
I can feel you prowling in the Wind beneath the Sun
Your eyes are burned Clouds
High you fly, piercing eye into the Mystic Voices
Craven lies, Raven guise, into the Massive Vault

CHILDSLAYER, CHILDSLAYER... Fierce is my Heart, Fierce is my Hate, Fierce is my Love!!!

I bear the Scars of Love & War, I'm the brazen Sword that splits the Skull again
'Til the Sunlight of Union descends and bathes your denial bare
When the Night rises Black underneath her Skies I run
Seeking our Murder's Tribe
But you won't know where I am...
Rising up through Sullen Lights, underneath her skies I run...
To summon all Truth is stained
Here you'll see the Jackals run down
We live and lie oh, we fight and die oh
But we never understand...
And will I rise, will I rise... underneather her Shrouds I fall
Nothing's gained in this world apart...
YEAH! Enter the Dragon!

CHILDSLAYER, CHILDSLAYER, CHILDSLAYER, CHILDSLAYER!!!
Fierce is my Heart, Fierce is my Love... my Love...

Drink the Nectar from Meletine's Breasts and give me back my Child!
Plague of God Heaven's Rod will fall upon your Breast!!!
10. When Dusk Fell (6:57)
[EVE:]
The Sins are bare and War resounds...
Blood runs like Gold
The Days grow long, The Death of Hours now
I can't fight no more...
To run like Stone through the Streets alone
His Eyes follow now...

"I WILL BURN THIS PLACE"
"NOW DEATH CALLS HERE"!!!

WHEN DUSK FELL - I saw you dead on the ground
AS DUSK FELL - Black Lightning falls in the Shades now... Burn...

A Thousand years have come and gone
You've lost your Golden wings...
What was so bright, silent Tears for Night
I've found this has no Name...
I run these Streets blinded by a Love
Why I do not know...
I see your Face staring back through Time
Blood runs from my Soul...

I WILL BURN YOUR BLACK HEART!

AS DUSK FELL - I will remember all this
AS DUSK FELL - I still remember your Kiss
WHEN DUSK FELL - White as the Snow
Black Lightning struck on the ground now...

I'll burn your Heart... I'll burn your Fate...

WHEN DUSK FELL - I saw you dead on the ground
AS DUSK FELL - White as the Snow
Black Lightning runs from Above
WHEN DUSK FELL - I will remember all this...
WHEN DUSK FELL - White as the Snow
I will remember all this now...

Fear... all Graves become One here... all Graves become One here...

WHEN DUSK FELL - I saw you dead on the ground
WHEN DUSK FELL - White as the Snow
Black Wolves did light on the ground
WHEN DUSK FELL - I still recall every Wish...

WHEN DUSK FELL - "Black Wolves devoured the Town"
WHEN DUSK FELL...
AS DUSK FELL.."Black Wolves burned Night on their Crowns"
WHEN DUSK FELL...
Rising to the Streets Below... WHEN DUSK FELL, Black Lightning calls...
Remember, remember, remember...
11. Visions Of Eden (7:16)
[LILITH:]
You Lust for me in the Night
Child of Madness Burning Bright
Kill us now for we're too wise
Bring your Laughter to our eyes...
To Rise on the Sky... To the Soul Of Dead lack Seas... Waiting to be born...

Lies on the Wind bearing Shapes in the Sky
Misfortunes in our Paradise
Blind stealing God wielding Dark streaks of Light
Grief runs like Blood piercing White

Hide the Sky with Sadness
How to end your **cking Reign

[LILITH & EVE:] These are the Cries of the World
[LILITH:] Ancient miscarriage of Laws that we made

[GOD:]
In the Dark I am bleeding
Calling for Plagues on your Soul

[LILITH/EVE:]
White Fire-Black Rain Where Angels die
White Fire-Black Rain Leaving this Life for a lie
White Fire-Black Rains Where Angels die
White Fire-Black Rain Leaving this life for a lie
For a lie...

[GOD:] Die in the Sea bearing hatred of me
[SAMAEL:] This War is All against All

[BLACK ANGELS:]
For what you Transgress we condemn you to Death
Witness our Pale Kingdom's Horse

[LILITH:]
Unite the Sky with Gladness
How to end your stubborn Reign

[EVE & LILITH: These are the Cries of the World
[LILITH:] Ancient miscarriage of Laws that we made
[GOD/BLACK ANGELS:] In the Dark I am seething waiting to tear our your Soul!!!

[LILITH:]
Listen to me I don't deceive I am the Shadow of things that will be
Endless Sorrow we'll never know alone in the World as the Vision foretold
Out of the Fire, out of the Rain, I will return with the Pale broken Moonlight
Rising Unchained, Rising on Mist, Rising again with Sumerian Moonlight...

[LILITH & EVE:]
Death of a Life, Death of a Soul, Death of us All...
VISIONS OF EDEN...
Death of a Life, Death of a Soul, Death of us All...
VISIONS OF EDEN...

[BLACK ANGELS:] Cursed by the Gods...
[LILITH:] Hieros Gamos, Hieros Logos...
[EVE:] When Wisdom becomes Understanding...
[SAMAEL:]
You didn't know of the Danger, you will see by their Eyes Black
Undercover a Stranger... you will see by their Eyes inside...

[LILITH & EVE:]
Death of a Life, Death of a Soul, Death of us All...
VISIONS OF EDEN...
Death of a Life, Death of a Soul, Death of us All...
VISIONS OF EDEN... Oh... VISIONS OF EDEN... do we cry for thee

[LILITH:] I am called SHE after the storm...
[EVE:] HEAR YOURSELVES INTO SPEECH NOW...
[LILITH:] I am the Shadow of things to be born...
[EVE:] To BECOME...
[LILITH:] Out of the Sea, like never before...
[EVE:] TO BECOME GOD IS HUMAN...
[LILITH:] I am restored to the First Ground Of Being!

[LILITH:]
I will return gliding on Mist, I will recover the Pale broken Moonlight
I will re-till this desert soil, call for me now at the Birth of the New World...

Rape of a Life, Rape of a Soul, Rape of us All
[BLACK ANGELS / ALL:] VISIONS OF EDEN
[LILITH:] Why do we Live, Why do we Die, When will we Know
[BLACK ANGELS / ALL:] VISIONS OF EDEN...

Oh, oh... VISIONS OF EDEN, I cry to thee
Now we Know... Pains... Oh... Pain unending...
