1. Manuscript 408 (10:03)
Words written down so long ago
In a language already gone

From hand of scribe
Down through the pen
And marked into vellum

Cloaked in darkness
The secret remains
Hidden from us for all time

The ravings of a madman
Or learned scholar
We may never know why

Brought forth while in possession
Of knowledge from other realms

Through supernatural process
One may obtain
That which is withheld

The scryer, the seer
Can talk to beings
Who remember the ancient days

When men were more
When they weren’t lost
In their mathematical ways

32 gone, 240 remain
Torn out by a dark mage

Who knew of the power
Held within
They are in use to this day

Herbal
Astronomical
Biological
Cosmological
Pharmaceutical

When all combine
Madness of the mind
Destroy all life
And reset time

When all combine
Madness of the mind
Destroy all life
And reset time
2. NATIAIWS (5:52)
Throw away my cigarette
Watch it bounce across the pavement

Mindlessly walking
Tryin’a figure out where the day went

I don’t seem to know much of anything anymore
Can’t seem to get my life back to where it was before

I sit and stare at the wall
I don’t know anything at all

Sometimes I want to kill myself
Is writing it down a cry for help?

I wish you’d all leave me alone
An infinite cage was my home

Not all that I am is what’s shown
3. Man Sitting in a Field of Green Grass (4:50)
Sometimes we need to sit in the grass
Relax our minds and let the time pass

Each blade has thoughts it could tell us
But sometimes they won’t because they’re jealous

Let our minds separate from our flesh
We don’t need them anyway

Relax a little and just take a rest
We have nothing to do today

Roots sprout from our thighs
Sitting Indian style
We’ve been here oh so long
We’ve been here quite a while

Shake the seeds out of our hair
Where they land little we’s grow everywhere
4. Illuminations Foretold (7:30)
Watch all matter form
Into giant terror worm

All enemies defeat
Crush, kill, mangle, eat

Watch all matter form
Into giant terror worm

All enemies defeat
Crush, kill, mangle, eat

Crush, kill, mangle, eat

Illuminations Foretold
The coming of one through the fold

Time is illusion old
Nothing ever grows

Illuminations Foretold
The coming of one through the fold

Time is illusion old
Nothing ever grows

Nothing ever grows

Entropy reigns
Disorder takes hold

Forever expand
Forever cold
5. Steal Away from Hell (7:13)
There are things I hope to find
I’ll be gone when they arrive

There is nothing left inside
Memories now lost in time

In much wisdom is much grief
Gaining knowledge sorrow increase

In much wisdom is much grief
Gaining knowledge sorrow increase


I’ll run until my lungs burst
From my mouth blood runs

Break this prison
Devour the frame

Defeated by none… save myself


Take shelter from thyself
Bid the world farewell

Spring forth from out of torment
Try to steal away from hell

What is this that they call life
All we know is hurt and strife

What is this that they call life
All we know is hurt and strife


I’ll run until my lungs burst
From my mouth blood runs

Break this prison
Devour the frame

Defeated by none… save myself
6. Astronomical Union (5:03)
I saw you in a constellation
You were looking straight down at me
With stars for eyes, you lit up the sky
And even in darkness I could see


Your hair fell in trails of cosmic dust
Your figure connected out of the dots
Will you come down to me?
Or should I come up there and see?


We know each other but no one knows us
We know each other but no one knows us
We know each other but no one knows us
We know each other but no one knows us
We know each other but no one knows us
We know each other but no one knows us
7. The Black Book of Hours (7:08)
Bow to the virgin
Prostrate thyself

In the hour of death
Cry forth for help

Then descends
From out of the pitch

Cloaked in the sins
You would never admit

O Intemerata Obsecro Te
O Intemerata Obsecro Te
O Intemerata Obsecro Te
O Intemerata Obsecro Te

The Memitim’s come to take you away
The Memitim’s come to take you away

The black book of hours
Upon its wrists

Pray to your god
This cannot exist

As the heart panteth
After thee

From that book
Beg do not read

The black book of hours
Opens again

Upon your death
Its pages read

Oh god
Break the teeth of their mouths

Fangs of the young lions
Tear out

Oh god
Break the teeth of their mouths

Fangs of the young lions
Tear out

10. The Bearded Mage (10:21)
The bearded mage
The bearded mage

Beneath a sickle moon
Reads the ancient tome

The bearded mage

Lost in the glow
Of the candle by the window

Fire burn slow
The trees are laden with snow

Fire burn slow
The trees are laden with snow


I have ascended straight into the clouds
Spoke into them and made lightning burst out

All power lies in the book upon the page
It lies in waiting for the bearded mage


Gaze among the shelves
Many hoary volumes dwell

All known too well
Indecision casts a staying spell

Settle on the same
It’s been read and read again

Familiar decay
Tales of hurt and sorrow and pain


I have ascended straight into the clouds
Spoke into them and made lightning burst out

All power lies in the book upon the page
It lies in waiting for the bearded mage


I’ve seen my death in the flames
Stared for hours on end

When one gets this old
He knows nothing but pain

Constant pain
Old and decrepit
Life beginning to wane

All birds fly away
An image cast upon the lake

By my hand the sky shall fall
And the earth shall quake

And the earth shall quake
11. Adoration of Ra (5:00)
Adoration of Ra
When riseth he
In emerald horizons
East of thee

That which existeth
That which not yet become
Leadeth in his train
Toweth in triumph


In the name of the doorkeeper
The one who does not rest
I have poured the water on
The cuttings of the flesh
