lyrics

Beyond the darkened night
Lit by a radiant winter moon
Stars aligned, glistening on polished steel
The blood of the ancient gods
Course through my veins
All but forgotten in time
Upon a deceitful throne that will once again be mine

Tested by might

Into the throes of the gallows the broken remains
Left them to die

Taken from chains, shackles restrain them no more
Cast to the sky!

In these hardened, calloused hands
There lies the key
A sharpened blade
Those opposed have sealed their fate

Captive!
Emancipator!
Free thy suffering mind
Iron will bends weak flesh
As the axe grinds

Another vessel of the damned
Cursed to mere existence
Never knowing the pain
The glory of death

A forced hand trembles in anticipation
The light shines down
Upon a weary soul
Beckoned by fate and known by none
But here, in this everlasting moment
The aeons will know thy name

Shasurat!!
Ziggurat!!
A temple built in stone
