1. Fracticide (3:39)
Now do our eyes behold the tidings which were told
Twin fallen kings, twin perished hopes to mourn
The slayer, the slain, entangled doom forlorn
ruinous end of twain

The ship of souls, the dark
The ship of souls, the unreturning bark

Say, is not sorrow, is not sorrow's sum
Oh, home and hearthstone come?
Oh, waft with sighs, the sail from shore
Oh, smite the bosom, cadencing the oar

The ship of souls, the dark
The ship of souls, the unreturning bark

That rows beyond the rueful stream for aye
To the far strand
Whereon light never falls nor foot of Day
Even to the bourne of all, to the unbeholden land
2. Soul of Death (4:40)
My soul is the soul of Death
My wings are the wings of dread
My breath is north wind's breath
My preys are the cold and the dead

I am He who howls in the night
I am He who moans in the snow
I am He who hath never seen light
I am He who mounts from below

There dwelt a man of rank
whose fortress stood
In the hush'd twilight
of a hoary wood

My soul is the soul of Death
My wings are the wings of dread
My breath is north wind's breath
My preys are the cold and the dead

I am He who howls in the night
I am He who moans in the snow
I am He who hath never seen light
I am He who mounts from below

My soul is the soul of Death
My wings are the wings of dread
My breath is north wind's breath
My preys are the cold and the dead
3. Nemesis (7:01)
Through the guarded gateways of slumber
Past the wan-moon abysses of night

I have lived over my lives without number
I have sounded all things with my sight
I struggle and shriek ere the daybreak
Being driven to madness with fright

I have whirled with the earth at the dawning
When the sky was a vaporous flame
I have seen the dark universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim

I'd drifted over seas without ending
Under sinister grey-clouded skies
That the many-forked lightning is rending
That resound with hysterical cries

Nemesis — through the ages
Nemesis — Erebus rages

I was old when the Pharaohs first mounted
The jewel-deck'd throne by the Nile
I was old in those epochs uncounted
When I and I only, was vile

Nemesis — through the ages
Nemesis — Erebus rages

Down the infinite aeons
Come beating the wings
of unmerciful gloom
4. Chorus of the Initiated (2:57)
Now we go to dance and sing
In the consecrated shades
Round the secret holy ring

With the matrons and the maids
Thither I must haste to bring
The mysterious early light
Which must witness every rite
Of the joyous happy night

Let us hasten — let us fly —
Where the lovely meadows lie
Where the living waters flow
Where the roses bloom and blow

Heirs of immortality
Segregated, safe and pure
Easy, sorrowless, secure
Since our earthly course is run

We behold a brighter sun
Holy lines — a holy vow —
Such rewards await them now
5. The Dead Have Ravished (4:23)
Evil was the root —
and bitter was the fruit
And crimson was the juice —
of the vintage that we trod

Heroes whose minds the Dead have ravished

The darkened pathways through the shies
Where Death in all his grandeur moved

The cry of battle rises along their charging line
For God! For Cause! For the Church! For the laws!

Heroes whose minds the Dead have ravished
6. True Bliss (4:29)
Immortal Moon, in maiden splendour shine
Dispense thy beams, divine Latona's child
Thy silver rays all grosser things define
And hide harsh truth in sweet illusion mind

In thy soft light, the city of unrest
Throws off its habit, and in silence blest

Convey me where my happiness may last
And let my spirit rest amid the past

True bliss, a man can only find
In virtuous life, and cultivated mind

All that men seek is unworthy of the quest
Yet seek they will, and never pause for rest
7. The Fall (3:57)
A hand omnipotent, in endless space
From chaos, formed a world and found a place

Where, through the countless ages, yet unborn
A star might shine from dusk to rosy morn

A form of god-like beauty and of might
To drink the sunshine and to dream at night

In those old days, when first the world began
Strange visions came to Nature's first child, Man
Unclad and lone, he roved from spot to spot
And longed and yearned for something which was not

A form of god-like beauty and of might
To drink the sunshine and to dream at night

So beautiful the earth, in Nature's eyes
A soul was sent to dwell, in human guise

A form of god-like beauty and of might
To drink the sunshine and to dream at night
8. A Spectral Vision (4:09)
A spectral vision clear
Thrills every hair with fear
In haunted sleep
Breathing of dire distress

The dead were wrathful found
A spectral vision

Breaking with cry of fright
The still deep hush of night

The dead were wrathful found
A spectral vision

By solemn pledges bound
Declared that underground

The dead were wrathful found
A spectral vision

By solemn pledges bound
Declared that underground

Sharp cry was heard that hour
and read decrees of Heaven
9. Murder (2:36)
Through the guarded gateways of slumber
And for the blood which Earth
To whom it owed its birth

Hath drunk
there still doth wait

A stern avenging fate
The stain of blood doth stay
And will not pass away
And nerves are thrilled with pain

Hath drunk
there still doth wait

In soul that sets in train
The plague that works a main
Its evil great
10. Descent to Abaddon (7:33)
The constant rain of Erebus
becomes slowly falling flakes of snow
Putrid flakes fall from the sky
Collect between great hills in the form of slush
Mulling through this sludge
the damned scuts of Abaddon

Miasma of entropy
covers the circle
Abaddon — beneath the nether sky
Abadden — the everlasting fire

Creatures of gluttony
With pale skin and bloated bodies
Dirty and grimy
dwell underground

Miasma of entropy
covers the circle
Abaddon — beneath the nether sky
Abadden — the everlasting fire
