Track Name: Hymn of Flawless Darkness
Void will consume us
Darkness will bind us
Salvation will never find us

Cast upon the raging solar winds
Twisting to the rhythms of doomsday
Burn away the flesh and the soul
And let the ashes to the vacuum glide

Your gods will not divert us from our fate

Void will consume us
Darkness will bind us
Salvation will never find us

Too long the sun's light has shone
Blaspheming on flawless darkness
Extinguished, the eyes of god
Banished to supreme silence

Deep space to be our grave
Our final resting place
Devoid of sentient life
As if we'd never been
Drifting cold and unseen

Void will consume us
Darkness will bind us
Salvation will never find us

Void will consume us
Darkness will bind us
Salvation will never find us
Damnation is all that guides us
Track Name: The Divine Lie
Infected by the blood of Christ
Shaped by the severed flesh
Removed from all reality
Cast aside by humanity

Falsities spewed from the altar
The hallowed words of lesser men
Preaching stories of kingdom come
Preaching stories inked in blood

Burn the pages, burn them all
See this divine lie begone
Purge the world and snuff the flames
With the bleeding mouth of god

Pray!
Pray!
I said pray!
To your impotent god!
Pray!
Pray!
I said pray!
To your impotent god!

I stamp your face in the fire
Your cried won't meet my ears
Holy crimes punished tenfold
With forgiveness out of reach

Burn the pages, burn them all
See this divine lie begone
Purge the world and snuff the flames
With the bleeding mouth of god
Track Name: Demon of Winter
Winter leaves its mark
Deep on the earth
Cold and alone
Marks a child's birth
Ready to be judged
Added to the list
The solstice of slaughter
Has come again

Naughty or nice
Saint or sinner
Abandon your offspring
To the demon of winter

Chains, bells, the beast is approaching
Hidden in the cover of the night
Eaten, beaten, drowned in the river
Never again to see the light

Hear the children scream in pain
Hear their mothers cry in vain
Winter comes and so do I
You'll remember my name

No escape, no mercy shown
Another corpse decorates my throne
One more year until I come back
Until you see your world collapse

His breath froze the room
His horns pierced the sky
His hooves shook the earth
As children screamed and cried
His breath froze the room
His horns pierced the sky
His hooves shook the earth
As children screamed and died

The mist becomes his skin
The house becomes my tomb
And all of my days will come to and end
As the demon leaves his tune
The demon of winter!
Track Name: Ocean Floor Burial
Where are the winds
That tore through these sails
Swept aside
In stillness...
The seas spray that stung my wounds
No longer ails
This tattered soul of mine

The last light glimmers on the verge of my fate
Reflections of a world above so shallow and dry
Falling into a kingdom where men cannot dwell
Where time matters not to the ageless waves

Beset by treachery
Those who were with
Are now against me
The ocean's maw is wide and deep
Knife across my throat
Thrown across the bow
The ocean floor will be my grave

Mouths of the deep, come feast on me
My fate is decided, I'm buried at sea
Drowned but not dead, my soul will not rest
Until I track down the bastards that made me this way
I will bear the weight of the swell, so still, so cold
So dark with no hope
Remains of dying breaths, struggle through dead lips
With no more stories to tell

I have descended
From drowned to divinity
I am a dream, upon the waves
I am the abyss, the black beneath
And all of hell shall fear my name

Mouths of the deep, come feast on me
My fate is decided, I'm buried at sea
Drowned but not dead, my soul will not rest
Until I track down the bastards that made me this way
I will bear the weight of the swell, so still, so cold
So dark with no hope
Remains of dying breaths, struggle through dead lips
With no more stories to tell
