Track Name: Blood Shaman
Sacrifice to us blood for the moon
the night is ours to trust in seeing spirits soon
Intermediary to the spectral realm
Live bodies become hollow shells
For these magic scrolls do foretell
the world as we know it becoming hell

Ancient ritual/ Conjuring of lost souls
Ancient ritual/ Bloodletting and secret oaths

Blood Shaman
We’re Comin’

Strung up, upside down
throat cut, bleeding out
Track Name: Coven of the Night
At night we’ll gather, the coven of the stars
I’ve been searching the bottom of vessels
trying to find my heart
Everyday a journey of patience is our fate
the sun must escape before it’s too late

I am awaiting the sun to sink
many potions for us to drink
demons of dusk, carry me away
the night must live, death to the day

And now we’ve gathered, the coven of the night
I’ve imbibed every elixir and my heart is nowhere in sight

Some time ago the sun did sink
no more potions for us to drink
demons of dusk are all but slain
their spirits pointing to my grave

I am waiting for the sun to explode
for my world is far too fucking cold
Track Name: Maiden of the Hourglass
I like to see her comin’/ I love to see her go
She’s hotter than lava and cold as winter’s snow
One look into her eyes and I’m frozen on sight

Now I’ve fallen under her evil spell
She captured me through her touch and her smell
Maiden of the hourglass/ Yet I long to escape her wrath

She’s a real ice queen if ya know what I mean
Sorceress of darkness/ love makin’ machine
She’ll steal your soul without a blink
Sexiest damn thing that I’ve ever seen
Track Name: Hillside Fortress
I wonder if when you lay your head to rest
is your mind at ease from the life you’ve lived in jest?

Always lurking safe inside
but when you come out, nowhere to hide

Ponder all the reasons why
we’ve sought your destruction from the beginning of time

We’ll burn you out/ We’ll strike you down
No more lies comin’ from your mouth/ Now its blood that’s pourin’ out

Your fortress is at its end of days
and now without it, nothing of you remains
Track Name: Serpent Sceptre
The grand mage summons from his throne this misty night
slumbering in my chambers, I awake to candlelight

Oh master wizard can this be?
he and his scepter challenge me

Seven serpents form from the great sorcerer’s hand
when his staff gleams they’ll take hold over the land

Spell book of dawn, disguise thee
light of the morning star, guide me

The seven serpents converge to form a dragon/
Luciferian book of magic
As the dragon devours the sun,
the world descends into Abaddon
When the master sits upon his throne,
His majestic hall I’ll call my own
Track Name: The Other'n
You can take what you want but you can’t take it from me
Damn pity 'cause I’m everything
You had your chance/ you pushed me away
I sold my soul to the lord of the dark
and he has left his mark
How he haunts me every night and day

Content with loneliness and nothing to believe
Burn my coffin 'cause it’s headed for hell and no one’s there to grieve

You can take what you want but you can’t take it from me
Damn pity 'cause I’m everything
I don’t know you so please stay away
My soul belongs to the lord of the dark
and he has left his mark
He calls upon me every night and day

Content with loneliness and nothing to believe
Burn my coffin 'cause it’s headed for hell and no one’s there to grieve/ for me

Solitude is my shield
emptiness: the weapon I wield
no one around as my life yields
and I die alone in this forsaken field
Track Name: Mystic Woodland
Journey through the mystic woodland
ain’t no tellin’ what you’ll find

The trees whisper unto me
and the cold wind beckoning
eyes of truth allow me to see
a way out of this place
before midnight’s ghostly gaze
I’m gonna lose my mind

I can hear the beasts howling
and the serpents slithering
the old owl is reminding
these are the travels of forgotten ones
and the end has been found by none
I’m gonna lose my head

These are the travels of forgotten ones
I won’t be saved by the light of the sun
fighting not to be consumed by fear
even though the fog of death is near

Hidden path by moonlight shown
where it leads I do not know
I’m gonna go insane

In circles, I’ve been wandering
trees now endlessly chattering
this forest has shattered me

Journey through the mystic woodland
You will lose your goddamn mind
Track Name: The Lantern
Cavern’s darkness bleeds deep
its pathways jagged and steep
but with this lantern of mine
every stone shall shine

When I raise the light, emerald walls glimmer and sparkle
the way aglow, “we aren’t too far now…”

Dark figure? No one’s there/ reflection in a mire but no time to stare
I figure it’s in the air/ lungs short of breath now no time to spare

Secret passage becomes unlocked by my lamp’s crystal
“Seems to be a long way down”
Here, a vast expanse of hidden trails and corridors
labyrinth aglow, “we may be lost now…”

Yet in the darkness we’ll shine
with this old lantern of mine
Track Name: Magik Karpet
Magic carpet ride
Fly us through the night
I lift you up
I peel you back
There’s treats inside
I don’t know if I’m dead or if I’m alive

Mysterious haze
Fly through the maze

Magic carpet ride
Fly us through the night
I lift you up
I peel you back
There’s truth inside
Now I can see I’m claimed as Satan’s prize

Mysterious haze surrounds/ There’s sorcery about
What I once lost I now have found
