Track Name: The Cursed Travails of the Demeter
A cursed vessel from stern to bow
Twisted vine like skeletal limbs
Contorted misery on abyssic sea
Crashing through black waves

In fear, in dread, it steers
Its shell, a cargo, a hull of forboding doom

Carrion ravens guide torn sails
Fettered by a blood lit moon
Each man who has stood is felled one by one
Felled one by one

No axe, no spear, no idol
Can fell this foul abomination
In dread, in fear, it steers
Plague bearing, no living god

Stalking this wooden tomb
Bereft of human life
A hideous thirst
Centuries old
The whisper of death
And the scurry of fucking rats
Track Name: Charonic Journey (Stygian Revelation)
Hurtling from space beyond the realm of chasm spawn
Unseen cloudless forms create shapes that eyes cannot unsee

Stygian blackness
Elemental darkness

Mythic curses, invocations of fire
Comets blaze in triumphant coming

Elemental blackness
Stygian darkness
Astral subjugation

Celestial sentinels observe all through eyes sewn shut
Tentacles threaded as veins extend through cursed torsos
Dragging deeper into this abyss

Return to the fucking womb
Charonic drift...
Track Name: Lascivious Cruelty
City streets like a whore's legs spread
A pack of rabid dogs by the scent of blood we're led
Down alleyways far from the city's glare
We're breeding a bastard kind, humanity's unaware
Plague rats crawl upon wretches strewn
Another line of poison through infected veins hewns
We are devils! Sluts, whores, sodomites
Purifying your kind with sacrifical rites

We hoist your fucking dead upon spears impaled
Laughing triumphant as your men are fucking nailed
On these city streets their bones a pathway pave
Pitiless and profane on their open grave

Devils
Fucking sin!
Vice
Lust

Hunters by predation
Laughing and leering at your degradation
Track Name: Betwixt the Devil and Witches
A call howls through grave markers old
A rapture 'neath a fullmoon cold
Crawling feral in lustful prostration
Brought forth this night in blessed adoration
For the son of the earth must pay his due
As we write together in a sanguinary hue

Sing! Sing! Sing! Lord of wild we praise!
Sing! Sing! For our lust and sin
Sing! Sing! Are only yours to raise
Sing! Sing! Born of stars and fire!

As flesh becomes entwined again
In thunder, lightning or betwixt rain
When day and night become as one
Battles and wars, so many lost and won
Neither fair or foul, nor foul or fair
Shrouded in this fog and foul air
Vile foul air!

Unholy passion the tempest brings
As the lust consumes and a terror sings

A bastard born of the earth son's scourge
Their lies and valour a falsehood to purge
