Track Name: May The Coffin Hold You Close
You feel the cold blade penetrate your skin
A sharp rush of pain as the killing begins
Hoped you could flee but now its too late
One hundred stabwounds begin your decay

Covered in blood and filled full of cum
Thrown in the river after dark
For several hours you'll remain alive
Chills as your death comes slow

May the coffin hold you close
May the coffin hold you close
Chills as your death comes slow

The search delayed by your killers suicide
A gruesome mess they have to clean
Severed strips of flesh strewn throughout the room
Surrounding his naked impaled corpse

Alone and traumatized from rape and knife
Your mind runs restless as you die
Your butchered remains are later found downstream
No one ever heard you scream

A filthy job for the coroner
The sight of you inducing vomit
The puzzle of your body painstakenly restored
One of histories most heinous murders

Your funeral was a futile one
No ceremony could erase your pain
The closed casket was your only mercy
And so I pray...

May the coffin hold you close
May the coffin hold you close
Chills as your death comes slow
Track Name: The Abomination
Stitched together from putrid flesh
Dozens of bodies thatched
Brought back to life
From the dead king's twisted magic

Wretched demonspawn
Now your time has come
Cleave their armor off
Flay their flesh to bone

Lumbering foul-stenched
Merciless machine
Crawling out the slaughterhouse
The enemy of the living

Spreading blight across the land
Guarding their caravan of meat

Hulking great monstrosity
Pus-spewing atrocity

Butcher's knife hacking
Giant hook staking
It's chains rattling
The abomination

Lumbering foul-stenched
Merciless machine
Crawling out the slaughterhouse
The enemy of the living

Crush!
Track Name: Raw
A putrid fog hanging low
In this pungent morning air
In the heat the tenants grow sick
Suspicion makes them flee

Dig up the bodies
Unearth the garden of bones
The torrential downpour
Strips your corpse raw

Beneath the thunderstorm
Underneath the falling rain
The rot is buried shallow
A horrid stench carried on the wind

Dig up the bodies
Unearth the garden of bones
The torrential downpour
Strips your corpse raw

Rot!
Rot, Raw!

Dig up the bodies
Unearth the garden of bones
The torrential downpour
Strips your corpse raw
Track Name: Stockholm Syndrome
Isolation - You'll never know your life was stolen
Years of abuse monument my conquest

Such an evil man I am, and yet you call me savior
In your misguided love I am your world
And now as you come to welcome my lust
The thrill of the crime fades away

I can remember the first time I had you
A twisted rush of nervous pleasure
But now your screams have fallen to silence

Now I look into your eyes
Like a child to her father
And as they came to take me away
You even tried to save me

But now your screams have fallen to silence

Such an evil man I am, and yet you call me savior
In your misguided love I am your world
And now as you come to welcome my lust
The thrill of the crime fades away
Track Name: Lingering Death
You're presumed guilty, of this most heinous crime
You killed your father, the sacred giver of your life
You have committed the ultimate deviance
And thus incurred the wrath of the law

We heat the knife to begin your demise
Lingering death you will face
Two hundred wounds, quickly cauterized
Slashing away at your fate

To preserve our most righteous order
In our land at the center of the heavens
We'll mutilate your earthly body
And demolish your last shred of honor

You face a judge, but there is no trial
Your word alone cannot save you
The emperor abhors your crime
And so you shall painfully die!

You're presumed guilty, of this most heinous crime
You killed your father, the sacred giver of your life
You have committed the supreme deviance
And thus incurred the wrath of the law
Track Name: King Of The Dead
Deep into the eternal northern waste
Where no man has ever dared
It prepares to rally its army of white
As the Others awaken

King of the dead
Bringer of the cold

Like a lord, in a land without nobility
To command the fallen in their long march south
When winter comes to the western world
Mankind will see if their Wall will hold

The ones who walk with skin as white as snow
Their army grows with every lost crow
His long sleep of eight thousand years
Ends in this age of war and chaos

King of the dead
Bringer of the cold
Track Name: The Lechery
The darkest realms of my desire are fixated on you
On this night I will claim what is yours
Held firmly underneath/beneath my grip
It is hopeless/useless to resist

This overwhelming urge to end your life
Twisted wild by my impulsive lust
Driven by sadistic hatred
A violent terror is forced upon you

"At night alone, and caught off guard
How could I expect this?
The attacker's face is masked in blackness
As I fall down in the pouring rain"

I tear the clothes and bite into her flesh
Frenzied mad I'm not thinking clear
I draw my knife and stab wildly
And make her scream when I penetrate

"Have you no mercy? I'm still alive!"
I don't hear you
"This awful pain, please kill me"
I own your life!
I own your body!

"In death I will take my revenge
This I swear"
Track Name: Apparition
Wide awake you plague my sleepless nights...

Haunted - I torture your soul
Your mind shall know no peace
Phantom - I linger on
Forever my curse you will suffer

The crime you wrought against me
I will not forget
There burns a fire in my spirit
That will never rest in peace

The pain you inflicted on me
From the depths of your deranged mind
I shall reciprocate upon you
For all time

My mind is slipping away
I lie here in cold sweat
Her ghost has come back for me
To pull me into her hell

I curse your name each night!
I can hear your screaming
I damn your soul this night!
Shield my ears from the screaming!

Defiler of my honor
Corrupter of my body
I own your spirit
I will rape your soul!

How can I end this torment?
How might I free my mind?
I look upon the counter
And the knife catches my eye

Take up your murder weapon
As you hear the sirens outside
There is no escape for you
You know what you must do

The end has come to me
Now I pick up the knife (Do it!)
Prepare to slash my throat (Now!)
Prepared to die
Track Name: This Poison Atmosphere
You sit in silence, and wonder why
This awful air persists
Created it was from the words
Spoken from your acidic tongue

Broken, betrayed and enraged
The poison in the sky stands seething
To speak aloud is to reveal your evil power
To siphon the breathe from those near

Your toxic speech sews the seeds of misery
Breaking apart trust among men

And when your slow poison has run it's course
All that's left is silence
Track Name: Frozen
Through winter fields
My thoughts are lost in the cold
The gripping chill...
Frozen my soul

My breathes are sharp
My lungs frigid with ice
I can feel myself fading
Frozen my heart

Die! The winds scream
Ice grips my flesh
And my lungs stop
Frozen

My limbs lie numb
Alone I lay in the snow
From the depths of my soul
A desperate cry

My voice disappears
I can't feel a thing
Lost in the wind
Frozen my body

I'm stuck between
The living and the dead
The cold takes my life
But the numb stays my death...

Frozen existence

Die! The winds scream
Ice grips my flesh
And my lungs stop
Frozen

And now I mourn my own death
Will I be found? Forever lost beneath the ice
Track Name: Mordatorium
Beyond the realms of death lies a land filled with hate
Trapped and buried, restricted soul
Searching for eternity through fields of desolation
There is nowhere to go

Fear overtakes the mind
They hope and pray for the end
But death never comes

No salvation

Lost souls make war
Struggles upon man
There is no future in this vast empty hell

Fear overtakes the mind
They hope and pray for the end
But death never comes

There is no escape

Wild hatred - they revert to primal instincts
In this place without God
There is nothing but sin
This is the fate of all those who stray

Hate grips this world
As they hope and pray
Pray for the end
But death has already come
Track Name: Violation Domain
Crawl on our knees through the gutter
From an untimely demise
By remission of all sins
Forsaking old and wise

Violation of domain

An area of conquest
Which only we have one
Don't stagnate within your self
Transcend the Rubicon

Suffering, torment, anguish, pain

At life's shore slowly breaks the waves
Turn of the tides, revenance of rage

Blistering so were the thoughts
When shackled to a wall
Flagrant ways of conformation
Your death sentence appalled
Now plead for a worthless life
Deny us for your guilt
Escape within the stoney tomb
Which you yourself have built

Independence of a drug
To satisfy the need
Orgies filled with travesty
To sow all mocking seeds
Originality the one
Who's screaming at the crime
Sinister the ways of wisdom
Expand or face the fire
Sterile splinter of self doubt
Thorn in your boney hide
Counterfeit within adept
Colossal is the pride
Breeding cynicism
Grandeur crying in your face
Overture derisive laughter
Hateful human race

Incantation of your thoughts
Upon this mortal coil
Open wide the jaws of hate
Serving them so loyal
Reeking contradiction
When you're laughing as you fail
Believing in your innocence
Tells a sorrowed tale
Autumn fall upon a life
This season at an end
Darkened shadows all around
And yet without a friend
Realization dawns on you
It's time for you to face

Hateful human race
Track Name: Bridge Of Destiny
Standing at the bridge of destiny
So long since I tasted fear
Lurking in the darkest holes
Awaiting my minds weakest moment
Old words from an old world
Against the laws of nature
They say the truth is overrated
Wall of anger corrupts my thought

Standing at the bridge of destiny
Show me a sign
On the verge of losing my sanity
Free my soul

My inner demons torture me
Flapping their wings in my face
Damn you! You twisted illusion
I am no longer afraid
See through their liquid souls
Evil eyes that will hypnotize
You can no longer hurt me
I am my own worst enemy

Unleash the trapped souls of the dead
Spirits since long forgotten
Guardians fo the lost faith
Destined for glory?
Watch them all turn into sand
And the wind blow them away
Wisdom pours into my soul
...endlessly...
Track Name: What Is Love?
What is love?
Baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

What is love?
Yeah

I don't know why you're not there
I give you my love but you don't care
So what is right and what is wrong?
Gimme a sign

What is love
Baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

Oh, I don't know, what can I do?
What else can I say, it's up to you
I know we're one, just me and you
I can't go on

What is love?
Baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

What is love?
What is love?

Don't hurt me
Don't hurt me

I want no other, no other lover
This is our life, our time
We are together, I need you forever
Is it love?

What is love?
Baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
Track Name: Have You Ever Seen The Hearse Go By?
Have you ever seen the hearse go by?
Sooner or later you're bound to die
They wrap you up in a big white sheet
And drop you down about six feet deep
And all goes well for about a week
Until your coffin begins to leak
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochle in your snout
Your toes curl in and your eyes pop out
Your guts turn into sauerkraut
Your face it turns a sickening green
And puss pours out like whipping cream
Have you ever seen the hearse go by?
Sooner or later you're bound to die
