Track Name: Keeper Of The Light
here comes the water
unbound
rise

why do you stay holding ground
it’s all washing out

for so many years gone alone in his tower
we tried to ignore him lo,
though he made us all too aware he’s there

looking back now
only a mad man would wage a war
against that storm

do you remember oh how we left him
standing above us fist to the wind
screaming you’ll never take me alive

outrunning
the river
is rising
up

now what you say of this tale
of our sin?
how we ran?
too late to return
Track Name: Shipbreaker
send forth this song
so all the fools may hear me call them
this is the sound of demise
no hope all is lost
I break these ships like the bones of men

under
Nykur

I am the water I breathe the sea
I dont remeber land life
my curse genesis to grave
I am a god now inside these waves

let the current take you
let the tempest warn
the fog will blind you
tides rise
let the bow go under
they will go down
I'm going to break you

this is your grave
by night they warned you
death by the salt of the sea
you can't win
my name unspoken
choke on the brine that fucking drags you down
drags you down

this is your last
swim for the shore
I own you now

this is the hand that drags you under
down by the salt of the sea this is your grave
you swallow the name of the demon waves
that fuckinig drags you down
drags you down

I don't remember land life
my curse genesis to grave
I am a god now inside these waves
Track Name: Battle Worn
you come before us born of clay
still now no will

you stand before us without light
a broken thing stripped for parts

battleworn betrayer
you feeble thing
what is left of your life
battleworn betrayer
of idle mind
you will learn
as above so below

you stand before us and beg for life
but we give much more
steel your nerve now and cede this flesh
a harvest of your soul

battleworn betrayer
you feeble thing
what is left of your life
battleworn betrayer
of idle mind
you will learn
as above so below

the black light shines upon this horde
speak your truth and let it be known
make a gift of your blood and bone
the black light burns away your soul
Track Name: Charm Of The Rat King
the fallen people
they didn't know
the terror formed beneath them
underground

the creatures grew so strong in number
the filth then bound them to each other

entwined they become a vengeful and unholy thing
rise to the surface and there they will breed
rise the plague

you won’t catch it from their air
it takes one glance from their blackened eyes
then soon you’ll find yourself ripping your skin from bone

entwined they become a harbinger of the disease
rise to the surface and there we will bleed
rise the plague

you won’t catch it from their air
it takes one glance from their blackened eyes
and soon you’ll find yourself ripping your skin from bone

at night
they rise
they rise

you won’t catch it from their air
it takes one glance from their blackened eyes
and soon you’ll find yourself ripping your skin from bone
Track Name: Dying Design
light the match watch me burn
to the flame I will return
one more time going to burn

the warning thunder calls my name
another trip to the grave
it's now my moment my finest hour
this is my dying design

light the flame
sin will burn
to the grave
we will return

light the match
watch me burn
to the grave
I will return

warning thunder calls my name
1,000 burned here before
we are the wicked godless whores
we’re born of curse and desire

light the flame sin will burn
to the grave we will return

I hear them come for me
so bring your light

at night, upon the pyre
you all look just like me
so full of sin and holy cause
it’s all the same to me

I hear you’re going to burn
so burn down bright

the ash will rise up
the napalm rains
the fire restores you
to rage
Track Name: The Harrowing
instrumental
Track Name: Haxan
I call thee forth in bloody murth
ignite the curse
it's done

damnation night witches divine
from our own hands undone
get up and run
they've come undone

they've come for us
the broken ones
from our own hands
undone

they call for blood
ours to shed
so in the end we burn

what hell have we wrought?

possession obsession
keep them so blind
psychotic enchantment
beyond their feeble minds
in dark times
these holy
are full of evil pride

they've come for us
the broken ones
from our own spell

undone
Track Name: WVLFKVNT
I took from her a barren soul
my curse on thee, bear creatures of war

full moon, first night
back home she rides
taken from sleep
chosen of the beast

her skin, so ripe calls forth my seed
her womb, so wrecked becomes the key

once, she hid behind the elder wives
but not tonight
she rides alone on bloodstained hyde

dark riders born of her flesh
defenders of her home
the rancid one
they call her mother beast
her child is war

tonight we fight
for the mother of our tribe
tonight we ride
for her

tonight
we are tribe

tonight we fight
for the mother of our tribe
tonight we ride
alive

to this day
they must pass
from her rotting womb
mother of wolves
demon born
