Track Name: Monument IV
Crooked footsteps haunt these floors
Moans of ghosts in orgasm and pain echo through the walls
I have given to the world my blood and toil
I seek only to give to you in the same way
There are no gods left to plague this land, vast and free
There are no angels with serpent tongues left to poison you
There is no more pain in this body you’ve rented or the mind that you own
Only the freedom I have granted unto you to love and be loved by me
Stand here with me at this shoreline and stare out into this world
Tell me, what does it look like on that far horizon there?
Slip your hand into mine and we’ll step out of time and live forever
As this monument, this beacon, this eternal unending light will unceasingly shine
Track Name: Swords
Bare bones bear the brunt of the punishment
Lonely streets and open roads can’t redeem our broken souls
Stare into the face of the devil that you loved
Pull the shards of your sword from his face

As each nail is pounded in, his look remains the same
As each lash is granted him, no sign of the euphoric pain
I will not carry your cross, I have my own to bear
Through these fields of Sodom, through the endless pale

There are secrets of the earth below that I seek to know
There are demons seeking solace in a ’63 merlot
The temple of Lucifer rains down its freeing light
Liberation in an embrace; the hands you hold your own

As each nail is pounded in, his look remains the same
As each lash is granted him, no sign of the euphoric pain
I will not carry your cross, I have my own to bear
Through these fields of Sodom, through the endless pale

Seek me out
For the gifts from the ones who are ghosts
Seek me out
Though we were lost
Now we walk with great purpose
Track Name: Beacon
I held on for dear life to the memories of a life I died in
I hang my head for shame. I cut away the lines to drift
And there you stood, A beacon to guide me back
Apollo in apogee, awash my form with light
Pale reflections in dying stars erase the pain within my heart
And there you stood, A beacon to guide me back

And its taken me a while, but I know I am not afraid any more
Afraid of the love that you have inside
Afraid of my own wounds and my wounding hands
Track Name: Paths
There is a secret light that burns within
And it burns the brightest in company of sin
We walk the pathways
We are always searching
We search our mind for answers but none appear
The days are cold now
You bundle afraid
If I could shield you
My life is in your hands

Oh how I’ve loved all that you are
I’ll caress your body beneath the light of the morning star
Here in this temple; the star light in your light brown eyes
Moves me to tears, to whet the earth where the old gods lie

There is a girl to whom I gave my heart
There is a woman to whom I dedicate my art
There is a lady to whom I gave my soul
And there is you, to whom I gave my all

Oh how I’ve loved all that you are
I’ll caress your body beneath the light of the morning star
Here in this temple; the star light in your light brown eyes
Moves me to tears, to whet the earth where the old gods lie
Track Name: Praise Be Unto Satan
Ave Satanas and pass the wine
Pass the joint and cut me a line
Speak no evil but my two syllable name
I’ll speak no words to the secret shame

I’ll hold her closely as she comes
Hold tight as I can, for the end is almost upon
One day I’ll wake up and see the sun fall
Fall down into the ocean
And bring about the death of us all

I worship his shadow
I worship his face
I worship his black fire
I seek his grace

This world is beautiful if you stare at it just right
If you find a love to hold you through the endless sepulchral night
If you seek my knowledge, send me a sign
I’ll seek you where crosses lay broken
I’ll seek you where three serpents rise

Praise be unto Satan, less praise be unto man
there are halloween ghosts floating over this autumnal closed land
When every bottle yields the few bright moments
I’ll stare longingly disconnected until the sun finally sets

This world is beautiful if you stare at it just right
If you find a love to hold you through the endless sepulchral night
If you seek my knowledge, send me a sign
I’ll seek you where crosses lay broken
I’ll seek you where three serpents rise and writhe
Track Name: Insisto Semita Liberatio
Metallic taste fills up my mouth
I stare blankly for a minute
A circular burn fills my entire chest
There’s a rip beneath; I’ve been torn asunder by lead and hate
And leadened hate has lead us astray
from the path that our gods and our fathers laid
I see my brothers and sisters lie down
Like lambs to our gnawing fate

As you weep and pray to the effigies you struggled to throw away
know that in your silence our fate is sealed; in open conferences and back-room deals
The tree of blind liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots
But of what good is liberty when there are no patriots left to heed her call?
Track Name: The Destination and the Journey
Heralding fire, the warmth and the light
Destroying angel, avenging and awash and alight
There are works to be saved
There are cannons to call
And hearts must be mended
and Gods to be forgot

And Hark! at the clarion call
I’ve found what I’ve needed to live
In your gold and brown eyes I find solace and peace
And I’m free

Hand held with tenderness
Lips pressed so soft and sweet
Your scent awaking my greatest desire and needs
Sweet dark skin electrified by my touch
My lips are holding you to the ground

And Hark! at the clarion call
I’ve found what I’ve needed to live
In your gold and brown eyes I find solace and peace
And I’m free
Track Name: Heathen Youth
Smile down upon us with your open seeing eye
We are your children of these lesser days
We have been taught by this world in her beautiful form, Natural and True
Unspoiled and in bloom
Unshod and unbound, free to love the lost have been found
Their names taken and discarded, for their true names must be found

Hail! All brothers and sisters, hail!
We take what this world must give us

Stare at the wrath that we hath lain upon the land of the swine and swain
See how they’re fit and ripe for the culling-the harvest-to be slain
As youth turn from crosses gold and pale we await the day
Of our deliverance from pale steel and hot lead
When its no crime to follow your heart or trust your mind
And tis folly to follow the blind into darkness for fear of eternal fire
So we set alight the fire of life in our hearts in memory of truth, we seek and pledge ourselves to no one but each other, always we walk towards that new dawn.

Hail! All brothers and sisters, hail!
We take what this world must give us

So you think you should live
As if any of us would ever chose thus?
Track Name: All the Stars Dim for Us (Monument V)
Say goodnight to the stars, because tonight, its just us
Here in this place, this cold empty world, this cold empty dark
We said we rejected the light and its damning warmth
So we’ll lie here unshod upon this cold earthen sod, grass our blanket
I will embrace you here, beneath this starless night I will make you mine
We will hide always here, forever lost, forever young
So come sit down by me my love, let’s make this the greatest night
