Track Name: After The Battle
Thrashed immortal soldier is my mirror image now
The battle of armageddon seized, the blood upon my hands
I can kill with just a thought, my strength needs no defense
The twisting of my mind, the possession of my soul tells me...

I am a sinner, burn me well
My life on earth, is the beginning of the end
Ride with me and you will see
Tonight's the end of Christianity

God will perish in hells abyss
And I will get my strength, from his blood

Almighty God, mistakes you've made through the years
Keep your past, for I hold the future
Lucifer, hear me, give me what I need
Darkness, and fire, and Christ will die

Leviathan, master of the sea
Fill my cup, with blasphemy

Die Nazarene, hang upon your cross

I, rule the night, I drove the last spike through your hand

Here I am, redeemer of you all
Will you dare to enter my kingdom of hell

Sell your soul, my father waits
All happiness destroyed by hate
Your king of kings stands not a chance
Against my father's evil wrath

There you stand, blinded by truth
Now close your eyes, and you will die

The gates of hell are all you'll see
And Satan stands to the left of me
Open your eyes, we're his trinity
In hell you'll rot eternally
Track Name: In God We Trust
Nazarene
The pain you felt upon the cross
Was nothing
Compared to mine
Your book of lies
Disquised through time
To fool all mankind
How can I trust
What I can not see
Believe in what will never be
Soon your people
Are gonna see
Through your stupidity and fall to me

Reading through your book of lies
You speak of a war that's going to come
How do you know how it's to end up
Before the war is even done
The serpent lies in dormant form
He will rise when all the locks are broken
I hold the seven keys in my hand
These are the words that must be spoken

Open wide the gates of hell
Greet me as your friend
Grant me the indulgences of which I speak
Unleash the sword and slay the lamb

Chorus

Nations will form on either shore
And till man exists no more
By turning man against his brother
And the seas against the skies
Turn the moon against the sun
Till everything has died

The priest, he speaks the words
Unto the burial ground
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

In God we trust

Now you've heard
The other side
The way the war is gonna be won
Make your choice
Now you have
Two ways to decide
The way of love
or the way of hate
Will determine where you go
Into the sky with the holy one
Or burn with me far below

Now your mind will waste away
Trying to decide
Don't be afraid it's just your life
And I'll take care of when you die

Chorus
Track Name: Your Time Has Come
All is quiet, no one can hear
As the weapons from hell are unleashed
Innocent people, living their lives
Now knowing if they are to die

Evil lies waiting, The world collides
As demons are summoned from hell
Graves are unearthed
As satan looks on his face of death staring down

Open your eyes
So you may see bewildered men with mildewed eyes
Satan's legions standing strong and ready
The elder laughing as they die

The sword of Satan moves quick across the Earth
Taking what stands in its way
"SAY YOUR LAST WORDS FOR YOUR TIME HAS COME"
Satan screams in victory

Satanistic Monarchy reigns upon the Earth
Demons dancing al around
Legions of the dead, hounds of hell
Eat rotting flesh decaying corpses lie
Death reveals itself from hell
To take your life away

Buckle your armor and visit us
Bring forth the legions of hell
Your god has failed you on your holy quest
His fortune lies heavy in your heart

Look to the corners of Earth
You'll see hell all around
Now read my message: Your time has come...
Live to die...and die to BURN...

Eternal destruction destroyed the holy earth
The holy wait impoatiently for Christ's second birth
Priests, don't pray for us, don't ring your fuckin bell
Don't you try and save us, just let us rot in HELL
Track Name: The Dark
The darkness falls, the moon it fades away
Rest in peace, for tomorrow's judgment day
But confusing thoughts, are running through your head
Because nobody ever pronounced "You're dead"

How were you to know that you were ever gonna die
If this is all true there's not a damn thing you can do
But if these are all lies, open your eyes and look around
Maybe then somebody can dig you up from the grave

If there was a god, would he let you be
Caught up in confusion, and all this fucking misery
Do people remember the things you did
These were the people, who helped me close the lid

The only thing I can do
Is kneel down and pray for you
Maybe then you might be saved
From being thrown into a premature grave

Speak to me before I start to dig
Beg and plead before I close the lid
I'll laugh at all the sorrow you feel
You better rise before the tomb is sealed

Soon you're gonna see, what life means to me
Take my guiding hand, into the promised land
Like a grain of sand, cast into the sea
Is what your soul will be, for eternity

Now that the tomb is sealed
There's not a thing you can do
How was I to know that you weren't dead
You never listened to a word I said
Hear me laugh, when you are denied
Admittance into paradise
Your soul is gone, your heart is bleeding
Upon your flesh...I'll be feeding
Track Name: Reign of Death
Church of Christ, I step into the hallowed by disguise
My adrenaline flows as I watch the priest arise
Burning soul of Satan's child, My tortured soul set free
Give me hell or give me death, plea to yourself, not me

Vessels burst upon my face, Satan's in my soul
Kill me now, holy one, cause Satan's in control
Bullshit words, held in your power, have no effect on me
Sea of death shall overflow in chains, I'll take your soul

Laugh at you with burning eyes
Hypnotize your saints
Into the depths of hell
With me your soul shall be set free

Saints transformed to demons, chanting spells with me
The church drips blood of martyrs, walls bleed endlessly
Allied with Satan's army, the end of time is here
Soon our souls will be taken, down to hell we'll rot

Demons flying overhead, the smell of death is here
Morning looks like evil, the gates of gold have fallen
Spilling blood of angels burned by Satan
The southern cross held high, Jesus Christ has died

You had the chance to repent, Armageddon's here
The holy running scared, stricken with fear
Without the thought of their savior coming, they are fuckin lost
Now our army shall rule the world, with a REIGN OF DEATH
Track Name: Misery
ON YOUR TOMBSTONE I WILL WRITE
FOR I DESPISE YOUR NAME
DEATH HAS ENDED WHAT YOU CALL LIFE
TO ME ALL ITS THE SAME
WHEN YOU DIED YOUR PARENTS CRIED
AND I SAT BACK AND LAUGHED
AND AS YOU LIE DOWN IN THE GROUND
REMEMBER WHO'S THE ONE TO BLAME

MY DESTINATION HAS BEEN SET
HATRED AND PAIN
THE THOUGHT OF HEARING YOU SCREAM
ECHOES IN MY BRAIN
I AM HERE THE TIME IS NOW AND
YOU WILL FINALLY DIE
TOO MUCH PAIN I CANNOT COPE
AND YOUR THE REASON WHY

EVIL FILLS MY BLACKENED HEART
MY MIND IS FILLED WITH DEATH
FIRE
RUNS THOUGH MY VEINS
SATAN TAKE MY SOUL

MY FLESH
IS RIPPED FROM MY BODY
MY SOUL IS LEFT EXPOSED
SATAN ENTER ME
AND DESTROY THIS WRETCHED WHORE.

THIS IS IT
THE WAY IT'S GONNA BE
TO LIVE MY LIFE
IN MISERY
JUST LEAVE ME ALONE.

TAKE YOUR HAPPINESS AND LEAVE
I CANNOT LOVE NO MORE
DON'T FEEL NO SORROW FOR ME
I WOULD NEVER DO IT FOR YOU

I GUESS THERE IS NOT MUCH MORE TO SAY
I WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT
YOUR EXISTENCE BRINGS ME PAIN
BUT SOON IT WILL BE OVER
THE TIME WILL COME YOU'LL SEE.
YOU'LL FEEL MY MISERY
AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO
Track Name: In Silence
WORDS OF HATE
SPOKEN UNTO ME
BLESSED WORDS
OF BLASPHEMY
SPEAK TO ME
EVIL ONE
AND BRING FORTH DEATH
THE ENDS BEGUN

HELPLESSNESS SEIZES THE SOULS OF A FORGOTTEN FAITH
MIGHTY ARE WE WHO RULE BY THE NIGHT

TAKE ME SATAN LET ME SEE THE WAY
THE EYES OF HELL
WILL SURELY CAUSE THE MOON TO BLIND THE DAY
LOVE IS LOST
DEATH IS NEAR

HATE OVERCOMES
YOUR BLINDING FEAR
THE EARTH WILL ROT
THE SKIES WILL BLEED
AS GODS CREATION
FALLS TO ME

IN SILENCE SPEAK TO ME
WITH THE TONGUE THAT EVIL BRINGS
SORCERER CAST ME A SPELL
AND BRING MY FATHER UP FROM HELL

WORDS I HEAR FROM WHERE DO THEY COME
THEY ARE NOT THE ONES THE ONES I SEEK
THESE COME FROM ABOVE

WHO ARE YOU I HAVE TO KNOW
ARE YOU THE SHEPARD THAT I STRAYED FROM LONG AGO
ONCE WAS IN YOUR FLOCK
BUT NOT NO MORE
HOLY CHRISTIAN GOD
ROT FOREVERMORE

YOU SHOULD HAVE STAYED INSIDE A TOMB WHERE
YOU WERE SAFELY KEPT
BUT ANGELS ROLLED AWAY THE STONE AND LET
YOU OUT AGAIN
THE REASON FOR YOU DOING THIS IS SO UNCLEAR
TO ME
FOR ONE MORE TIME YOU´LL COME AND THEN YOU
WILL FACE ME
Track Name: Midnight Hour
The gong sounds, to summon the powers of darkness
The congregation speaks "HAIL SATAN"
The chalice held high by the priest
Sacrifice begins tonight

Black candles light the midnight sky
The blade raised toward the moon
Oh clean the air, my father's coming soon

SATAN, hear my cries tonight
I need no one to tell me wrong or right
BELIAL, ruler of the Earth
Prepare the mortals for the afterbirth

Priest now raise the blade
Plunge it down towards her breast
Bitch blonde I kill your God, I'll kill you too
Spill your blood I need your strength
Your soul belongs to me
Unholy lust now fills your loins
I'll fuck you till you bleed

Lightning strikes the midnight hour
The bell begins to chime
To the sign you're all God's children
Now you are all mine

Witches congregate around the cauldron
The congregation speaks "HAIL SATAN"
Demons rising up from hell
Warlocks gather around to cast a spell

Incantations break the silence, united by their spell
Before this evil night is over, we'll be one with hell
Track Name: Molded From Sin
WELCOME TO MY WORLD
DEEP INSIDE MY MIND
WHERE LIGHT CAN NEVER ENTER
AND EVIL ONLY SHINES
SECLUDED INSIDE OF DARKNESS
HIDDEN FROM THE THROWS OF TIME
MY EYES NOW ONLY SEE
THE HYPOCRITIC WORLD OF CHRISTIANITY

HOLY ONE HOW COULD YOU LIE
FOR ALL THESE MANY YEARS
YOU SAY THAT IF I FOLLOW YOU
I'LL LIVE ETERNALLY
IT MAKES NO SENSE IT CAN'T BE TRUE
I'LL NEVER FOLLOW YOU
HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE TO GIVE
YOUR ONLY SON FOR ME

I CAN'T SEE NO REASON FOR ME TO FOLLOW YOU
I CAST OUT ALL THE LOVE THAT CLUTTERS UP MY HEART
I HATE THE THOUGHT OF ANYONE GIVING THEIR LOVE TO ME
BANISHED FROM THE CHRISTIAN FAITH INTO IMMORTALITY

WELCOME TO MY WORLD
WON'T YOU COME INSIDE
OPEN YOUR EYES TO REALITY
AND SWALLOW YOUR FOOLISH PRIDE
BELIEVE ALL THAT I TELL YOU
LISTEN TO MY LIES
I'LL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU WANT
AND YOU WILL NEVER DIE

TRAPPED INSIDE MY SOUL YOU WONDER
ARE YOU ALL ALONE
TAKE A LOOK AROUND AND YOU WILL SEE
YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
YOU HEAR THE SPIRITS CHANT BUT YOU
CAN'T SEE NO SHAPE OF FORM
I'VE WAITED FOR YOUR LIFE TO END
SINCE THE DAY YOU WERE BORN

WHY WOULDN'T YOU FOLLOW ANYONE

WHO MAKES YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
SATAN FATHER HELP ME NOW
TO MAKE THESE PEOPLE SEE
THEIR TRAPPED INSIDE THE LYING
WORLD OF CHRISTIANITY
LET THEM SEE THEY HAVE A CHOICE
HOLD THEIR DESTINY

NOW IT'S TIME TO SETTLE WHAT
WE STARTED LONG AGO
HOLY ONE NOW YOU WILL BE
THE ONE THROWN IN THE HOLE

YOU'LL SUFFER FOR MUCH LONGER
THAN THE SERPENT DID BEFORE
FOR NOW I HOLD THE SACRED SEVEN
KEYS FOREVER MORE

YOU CAN'T STOP THE END OF TIME
THE SEVENTH SIGN HAS BECOME MINE
SATAN RISE UP FROM THE DEPTHS
AND SHOW THESE PEOPLE WHO YOU ARE
WELL RIP THIS USELESS EARTH APART
AND WE WILL START ALL OVER AGAIN
INSTEAD OF MAKING IT OUT OF LOVE WE
WILL MOLD IT OUT OF SIN
Track Name: Eternal Promises
BLACK MAGIC
THE CHURCH HAS BURNED
A SPELL HAS TWISTED ALL
OF THOSE WHO FORM
SPEAK OF DEATH
I SPEAK OF HELL
INHIBIT ALL WHICH THAT
LAWS THAT SATISFY
PRAYERS OF HOPE
WILL CHANGE OF DEATH
THE LAUGHTER WILL TURN
TO HORRID CRIES

SCREAMING THOUGHTS
CONFUSING YOUR CIVILIZED MIND
PRAY TO HELL
SATAN WILL HEAR YOUR EVERY CRY
JESUS CHRIST
YOU LEAVE ME NO CHOICE BUT TO DIE
I PROMISE YOU
THE CHRISTIAN FAITH'S JUST A LIE

LET HIM
BURN IN HELL
JUST AS HE CAST SATAN OUT OF HEAVEN
GOD ABOVE
NO PLACE TO HIDE
FEEL THE TERROR BURN DEEP DOWN INSIDE
JESUS CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED
DON'T LISTEN TO THE LIES THAT HE HAS RISEN

THE CHURCH HAS BURNED
THE PRIEST DESTROYED
DENY THE CHRISTIAN FAITH OR YOU WILL DIE

PROMISE ME
IN HELL I'LL ROT ETERNALLY
MORBID DEATH
IS ALL I NEED FOR HAPPINESS
JESUS CHRIST
I LAUGH AT YOU UPON THE CROSS
LEAVE US BE
FOR WE ARE SATANS TRINITY
Track Name: State Of Insanity
INFECTIOUS SPREADING DISEASE BURNS YOU FROM INSIDE
TORTURED SOUL FALLS VICTIM INTO UNCURABLE LIES
THERE'S NO HOPE FOR SURVIVAL
YOU CAN'T ESCAPE THE TRUTH
NOW YOU KNOW YOUR TIME IS COMING
TO MAKE YOUR CHOICE OR DIE

IS THIS REALITY OR IS THIS JUST A DREAM
THE ONLY HAPPINESS YOU FIND
IS TO HEAR YOUR VICTIMS SCREAM
YOUR HEART IS FILLED WITH PAIN
FOR EVERY DROP OF BLOOD THEY LOSE
QUICKLY BECOMES YOUR GAIN

THE FUTURE HOLDS THE KEYS OF LIFE
BUT WHAT'S BEHIND THE DOOR
MAKE YOUR CHOICE, LIVE OR DIE
OR BE CONDEMNED FOREVER MORE
IF THAT'S THE WAY ITS GOTTA BE
THEN TAKE YOUR LIFE AND END IT ALL
NOW YOUR FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE
BUT NO ONE SEEMS TO HEAR YOUR CALL

AWAKE FROM SLEEP CONFUSED AND COLD
AFRAID TO FACE THE LIGHT
BUT NOT AFRAID TO FACE THE TRUTH
THE BLOOD STAINS ON YOUR HANDS
AND THE BLADE ON WHICH YOU LAY
YOUR READY TO FACE THE WORLD AND TO KILL ANOTHER DAY

NOW YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS RIGHT
TO STAY OUT OF THE HOLY LIGHT
THE DARKNESS GROWS FROM DEEP INSIDE
YOU KNOW JUST WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO
THE ONLY HAPPINESS THAT IS LEFT
IS TO TAKE YOUR LAST AND ONLY BREATH
HE'S WAITING FOR YOU DOWN BELOW
SO SLIT YOUR THROAT, LET THE BLOOD FLOW

WAKE UP NOW THIS IS THE DREAM THAT HAUNTS YOU EVERY DAY AND NIGHT
STRAPPED IN A BED THE DOCTORS OVERLOOK YOU AND THEY LAUGH
THE DOCTORS SAY THERE'S NO HOPE FOREVER IS HOW YOU'LL BE
DEMENTED MIND CONDEMNED TO HELL... IN A STATE OF INSANITY
Track Name: Sign of Baphomet
Shadows appear before my eyes
Life means nothing no more
My earthly soul begins to descend
To where I do not know

Flames now heat my body
Is this the end for me?

My mind and heart fail to compromise
In hell I'll rot eternally
The holy trinity is not for me
HAIL THE SIGN OF BAPHOMET

Goat of Mendes give me all the powers of hell
On the right side of Satan's throne I will reign...

In the depths of hell I see, mortals scream in agony
Repenting of their earthly doings
I laugh with satanic wrath
I look towards the seventh gate, and this, is what, I see...

People running nowhere not knowing what to do
The holy being burned at the stake
Burn your fucking trinity
HAIL THE SIGN OF BAPHOMET

Kneeling at my father's thrown, soon I'll begin my reign
All the pain the suffering, tickles my blood sought brain
The smell of mortals burning flesh begins to bring
Laughter to my eyes

I see mortal forces rising from the depths of Hell
They begin to take the earth...now...

The holy do not have a prayer
Against the powers of darkness
In nomine dei nostri satanas Lucifer excelsi
BELIAL PRAISE!

Satan rises up from Hell, to take the evil ones
Our legions are much stronger now
War has been declared
Hiding in the endless shadows, high upon a cross
His father turned away from him

The holy do not have a prayer
Against the powers of darkness
In nomine dei nostri satanas Lucifer excelsi
BELIAL PRAISE!
Track Name: The Abyss
SUMMONED UP FROM HELL
OUT OF THE ABYSS
UPON THE WINGS OF DEATH
WE HAVE COME TO TAKE YOU WITH
BLESSED BY THE POWERS OF HELL
THIS IS THE LAND OF SIN
YOUR SOUL DIES DEEP INSIDE
A CORPS BURSTS FROM WITHIN

DAY BY DAY
YOUR POWER WASTES AWAY
DON'T TRY TO FIGHT
YOU CAN'T WIN ANYWAY
THE GOD OF HELL IS ANGRY
IT'S TIME TO PAY YOUR TOLL
TO CROSS THE RIVER STYX ALONE

A CHILL RUNS DOWN YOUR SPINE
YOU KNOW YOUR SOULS THE FEE
YOU HEAR A VOICE FROM HELL
YOUR SOUL BELONGS TO ME
ACROSS THE LAKE OF FLAMES
TO YOUR FINAL RESTING PLACE
IN SOLITUDE YOUR MIND WILL REST
ETERNALLY

DEMONS RISE FROM HELL
OPEN THE ABYSS
LET US SHOW THE SIGNS
AND BRING FORTH THE NATION OF DEATH

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT
PULLED DEEPER IN THE HOLE
SURROUNDED BY EVIL CRIES
TO RESIST YOU WOULD BE A FOOL
THE GOD OF HELL IS HAPPY
YOUR TOLL IS PAID IN FULL
A SERVANT UNTO HELL FOREVER

LISTEN TO YOU CRIES
TOO LATE TO BE SORRY NOW
WE DON'T KNOW THE MEANING OF MERCY
DON'T NEED YOU TO SHOW US HOW
WE'LL TERRORIZE YOUR MIND
WHICH ALL STARTED WITH GUILT
WE WILL DRINK YOUR LIVING BLOOD
TILL YOU DIE
