Carrion Lyrics

8. Carrion (4:42)
Lurking in the shade
Of dark and fragrant trees
Shirking from the rage
That tore the heavens free
A vagrant Angel
Hid with span to see
The gardens swell with terrors
To banish Man and Eve

Another fall from grace
Whiplashed from the gates
Naked and insane
Full-blooded, breasted
Nerve ends tested
To behests of pain
A sombre lot to gain

As the storm slid in
Borne by fingered winds
The upper ether thinned
And therein sat abomination

Satan seated there
Savouring the reek of desolation
Their dank despair
Moved His speech to leech the air

Behold the golden door
To paradise is lost
So praise Me as you praised your Lord
And I shall thaw this gnawing frost

Another fall from grace
Whiplashed from the gates
Naked and insane
And destined for a spiteful Fate
Wherein evil sought the shamed
As pawns in greater stakes
Across this cosmic game
To win the hand
Of darkness and
Set it in its rightful place
At the throat of the human race
With claws engorged and poised to rake

With that the pact was sealed
And as creation reeled
Bewitched oration filled
The hearts of all
Who came to crawl
Upon these earthen fields

A sombre lot to till

A wracked black acid song
Spat from the massive throng
Of Seraph knelt along
The deep red welt to domination
