1. Black Númenórean (10:14)
Down in the ground
a vicious thrumming
starts to pound
enraptured martyrs
tie their wills
lashed to the mainsails
set adrift
and sailing still

one was built
not in three days
forecastle
pounding the white caps

his will
thrust in those waves
expired
upon its black shores

now in Carn Dûm
amongst his kinsmen
and his thralls
he starts to belch forth
blackened words
foretelling of war
on the prow
it's burning still

black
words
spells of his wrath
unbound
by earthly law

ablaze
the sails
in the night sky
conform
now to his gaze
2. Recurring Grave (7:54)
Swing wide the censer
young ones remember
ritual deception
putrid inception

lying on the stairway
stretched across its surface
down in the sepulcher
death was always seething

our lives were squandered
old fires extinguished
our hands were pinioned
left down as refuse
3. Axis Mundi (11:17)
Words
sledgehammers rain down
upon his helm

prayers
inculcate, the eyes
with greater sight

gave
himself to the void
the serpent's gaze

left his back to
the smoke of dying lands

words, twisted, dire

one burns in effigy
words graven endlessly
on the throne of everything
my scribe still waits for me

Now the wyrm tightens down
upon its stem

Staid inscriptions aglow
from flaming pyre

Words saturnine drip down
its slavered mouth

pooling foul at the feet
of the wizened ones
4. The Seer (16:40)
Behold the strake
which bears us on its back
to leave behind
judgements made by men
its prow bears the seal

undone by time
we bear this broken line
on bleeding backs
passions unfulfilled
interred with himself

upon the wind
dour hymns foretold
a pox of ruin
prophets understood
the ways of the snake

its venom pulled
us along its way
to where the sun's
rays can't penetrate
the veil of its tomb

now we see
weathered peaks
distant mountains

what lies beyond
what lives within
only dreamed

I can see through all time,
twisting back on itself.
Lain across fields of ruin,
masters voice rings the call

Round the cairn
it begins
rites of seeing

All now aligned
single sight
truth of wisdom
