Track Name: Churning of the Cosmic Waters
Babalon come to me
Rasa in the air
Break your waves on my shore
Be my witching whore

Little deaths to genocide
Cosmic scale and back again
Flesh bears the marks for weeks to come
Soul maybe forever

Churning of the Cosmic Waters
and bestial rituals
For the glory of our Master
Primordial perversions

Like incubus in extasy,
a spear to pierce thine soul
Brutalized stigmata
forced upon your wrists

Pain for pleasure,
the knifes tip on your back
Light touch turns to carving
the scars will never fade

Churning of the Cosmic Waters
and bestial rituals
For the glory of our Master
Primordial perversions

Chanting in the rhythm of thrusts
Sigils glow on skin
Burning minds fuse together
Live is a sword whose blade is red

Intertwined masses of fles
Pulsing in the night
Phallus maleficarum
Orifice like a hole in God

Drawing down the Moon
to boil the Ocean
Black mass erotic art
Satanic sexual madness

Churning of the Cosmic Waters
and bestial rituals
For the glory of our Master
Primordial perversions
Track Name: Horror of the Void
Every time I blink my eyes,
I see a glimpse of it
A formless dread monstrosity,
fever dream alive

Whispers when I try to sleep,
bizarre mutterings
Abhorrend thoughts and visions
that I cannot escape

From nothing to nothing,
uncertainty to life
Perverse creation
Horror of the Void

I see the corpses
walking on the streets
Ghosts of memories
forgotten in the darkness

Madness and dementia,
a ghouls delirium
Among them I feel the peace,
and the Beast just laughs at me

From nothing to nothing,
uncertainty to life
Perverse creation
Horror of the Void

Mind rages against itself
something that cannot be
Monolith of sorrow
Carving the heavens

Alien landscapes,
even ground emanates hate
I am ready, come to me
and take me to the Void

From nothing to nothing,
uncertainty to life
Perverse creation
Horror of the Void
Track Name: Monument of Failure
I am the clenched fist,
the ever-bleeding wound
I am the misery,
the blind old fool
I am a prisoner,
raging chained hound
I am the architect
of my own doom

Don't feel pity for me,
that's reserved only for myself

I tear out my heart
and place it on a pedestal
For everyone to see
as grand monument of failure

I am the sorrow-fiend
malignat spirit high
I am the field of tears
fed with hate
All drained up
too tired to even try
I don't long to change my ways
until it is too late

Don't feel pity for me,
that's reserved only for myself

I tear out my heart
and place it on a pedestal
For everyone to see
as grand monument of failure
Track Name: Fractum
Forced conception
Malignant gestation
Twisted from birth
Raies in darkness
Dissosiations
Safety nets failing
Violent thoughts
suppresed until...

Fractum mens in corpore sano
A sick mind in a healthy body

Nothing left to feel
Nothing left to

Psychosis sets in
Senses overload
Focusing darkness
Primal urges
In his laid
Waiting for morning
Hoping his demons
Letting him sleep but...

Fractum mens in corpore sano
A sick mind in a healthy body

Nothing left to feel
Nothing left to feel

Broken...
beyond repair

Faces distorting
and voices are speaking
Telling the new truths
of salvation by blood

Altered states of mind
I am ready for the
Devils kenosis
Genesis in flesh
Reborn in anger
Ego death
Night of Pan

As I devour
the hearts of my enemies
I absorb their strength
I am but a vessel
As their faces
warp and twist
I know I am right
Track Name: Throes
I sing for all my woes,
gloomines, misery and throes
All my bleeding wounds are still aching,
I live for my days of suffering

Backwards frames of death and sin
Dying soul burned from within
Darkness falls for all to see
the shattered mask of sanity

Humane feelings locked in cage
Oath of the undying rage
No rotten forest from the trees
Forgotten ghosts of memories

I sing for all my woes,
gloomines, misery and throes
All my bleeding wounds are still aching,
I live for my days of suffering

Howling abyss, starless skies
Drunken love of lust and lies
Stripped from pride like raped seraph
Feasting in the filth and snuff

Diaries of suicides
Orgies with the Devils brides
Zenith of the sorrowburn
Graveborn hatred lust to yearn

I sing for all my woes,
gloomines, misery and throes
All my bleeding wounds are still aching,
I live for my days of suffering
Track Name: Thousand Eyes in the Dark
In the ancient labyrinth of horror
Cyclopean structures grow too tall
Inhuman architecture overwhelms the mind
Nightmares flood the consciousness

Forever lost in there
Prison without locks is hell
Mind frayed and broken
Pieces too small to put together

I am lost, lost in darkness
Unknown things are watching me
No answers, only feeling of dread
Thousand eyes in the dark

Alive only by iron will
Dead organs slowing down
Dark corners of darkened mind
Everything is lost forever

No exit nor escape
Prison is in the mind
Screaming until blood fills the throat
Only echoes answer

I am lost, lost in darkness
Unknown things are watching me
No answers, only feeling of dread
Thousand eyes in the dark
Track Name: Ruins
All my dark sorrows,
I load on a black crow
To carry them to deepest wells,
for no one else to see
No happiness, no joy
Spectrum goes from gray to black
Drowning in the pain and woe
I am my own uncreation

Nothing lasts forever,
everything will die
I have buried my loved ones
and seen my cities burn

Agony of existence
Passion for grief
When blade glows iridescent
Everything has meaning
Sanguine clairvoyant
Arteries shine through
Destroy everything
and weep upon the ruins

Nothing lasts forever,
everything will die
I have buried my loved ones
and seen my cities burn
Track Name: Mistlands
In the desolate wastes
Fields covered with ever-mist
I walk among the spirits of old
upon their crumbling corpses

Better to be alone
than my own knife on my throat
And the dust lingers around my legs,
air heavy on my shoulders

Masses of clouds hang low,
heaven drags on the ground
Time itself ceases to exist
in the gray nothingness

Ages ago I lowered my shield
and let my sword fall to the ground
Will to live is like there never was one
Mistlands is now all that is

Gray hollowness
Bleak and desolate
I am nothing anymore
in the cursed Mistlands

I am like this world
empty, cold and lonely
There is no more hate
as joy was forgotten

No point in denying feelings
as they don't exist anymore
I am this, I am not
Mistlands is now all that is

Gray hollowness
Bleak and desolate
I am nothing anymore
in the cursed Mistlands
Track Name: The Cats
Babels of blocks to the high heaven tow'ring
Flames of futility swirling below;
Poisonous fungi in bring and stone flow'ring
Lanterns that shudder and death-lights that glow

Black monstrous bridges across oily rivers,
Cobwebs of cable my nameless things spun;
Catacomb deeps whose dank chaos delivers
Streams of live foetor, that rots in the sun

Legions of cats from the alleys nocturnal,
Howling and lean in the glare of the moon
Screaming the future with mouthing infernal,
Yelling the burden of Pluto's red rune

Colour and splendor, disease and decaying,
Shrieking and ringing and scrambling insane,
Rabbles exotic to stranger-gods praying,
Jubmles of odour that stiffle the brain

Tall tow'rs and pyramids ivy'd and crumbling,
Bats that swoop low in the weed-cumbered streets;
Bleak broken bridges o'er rivers whose rumbling,
Joins with no voice as the thick tide retreats

Legions of cats from the alleys nocturnal,
Howling and lean in the glare of the moon
Screaming the future with mouthing infernal,
Yelling the burden of Pluto's red rune

Belfries that bleakly against the moon totter,
Caverns whose mouths are by masses effac'd.
And living to answer the mind and the water,
Only the lean cats that howl in the waste!

Legions of cats from the alleys nocturnal,
Howling and lean in the glare of the moon
Screaming the future with mouthing infernal,
Yelling the burden of Pluto's red rune
Track Name: Kouta
Kouta, grim man
Greatest wizard of the North
Green vipers were his gaze
His mouth spew blackest bats
From underfoot soared wolverines
Stoats ran on his arms
Raven resting on the head
and vultures on the shoulders

Veri verta vahvistavi,
Rauta raudan rohkaisevi,
Kylmä kylmän karkaisevi
On tuima Tuonen kulku,
elo kuoloa kovempi

Kouta, dreary
witch-master of Lapland
With all knowledge of mankind
and all wisdom of gods
Still he could not change his past
or bind the Blue Fire
On his quest for Greatest Power,
to Ascend, to Xeper

Veri verta vahvistavi,
Rauta raudan rohkaisevi,
Kylmä kylmän karkaisevi
On tuima Tuonen kulku,
elo kuoloa kovempi

He traveled the uncharted roads,
distances unfathomable
Through deadly blizzards and frozen lakes
His Black Flame burning bright
He had given up his blood,
struck a deal with Satan
And he killed off all his joys and laid curse upon his mother

Might of the thrice-locked Kouta
emanated far and wide
Awakened Väki of the Ground,
the Ur-Master of Mantu
He saw Kouta, boasted his might,
finding him hes equal
He knew Koutas destination
and mockingly told him

"How can you wish to become
all-knowing, but yet you are
not willing to give up your life?"

Kouta, gaunt man
Walked towards the dreaded gorge
Stars were scared and fell from Heavens
The dead trembled in their graves
Fear came to the House of Gods
Underworld froze in despair
Only one who was waiting
was the angry Ajatar

Veri verta vahvistavi,
Rauta raudan rohkaisevi,
Kylmä kylmän karkaisevi
On tuima Tuonen kulku,
elo kuoloa kovempi

From night of Death
roared gravely voice
From darkest forest
spoke Ajatar
"Only the living
have dreams of future
and the dead only
curse their past"
To ravine of Rutimo
walked Kouta
The stairds of Death
he climbed
Without hurry,
with steady pace
Pure agony was road to Hell
Yet life was more painful than Death

Elon huoli huomisesta
Mana mennyttä manaapi
On tuima Tuonen kulku,
elo kuoloa kovempi
