The Blood Of Vengeance
We are Descendants of the Ancient Ones The Race beyond the Wanderers of Night
Who dwell in the Black Spaces between the Stars From a Time before Time.
Long before this current Dynasty of Heaven We Reigned And will Reign again . .
. For We contain the Divine Essence, Made from the Flesh, Blood and Bone of a
God Who walked in Flesh, and who cut off his own head . . . Nourished by Fire,
Water, Wind, Wrath, Rage and Tears We Blossom at the Root of the Tree of
Knowledge . . .
We wait and We remember . . . , for the Blood of Man, is . . . THE BLOOD OF
VENGEANCE ! ! ! ! ! ! !back to top
Invictus
(ENDYAMON): I sing of Power, Magick and Faith A Sonnet of Pure Victory A Hymn
to the Spirits of Freedom and Grace And whichever Gods there may be . . .
Manacled, Beaten, Blackened and Burned Cast from the Light of the Goal I'll
never falter, stumble or kneel Thanks to the strength of my Soul
Lashed by the Winds of Fate Stung by the Gods of Hate I'm Rising in Power, I'm
Rising Unchained Call this a Sacred Vow All that I tell you now I may be
Bloody, but I am unbowed I am Power
Harken the Hour, Season and Day Phantom of Dark Misery Summon your Demons,
Hunger and Hate Spirit of Impurity Ravaged by Fire, stripped and enslaved Torn
from the World that I know I'll never cry out, buckle or kneel I am the King
of my Soul
Stung by the Gods of Wrath Blinded by Circumstance I'm Rising in Power, I'm
Rising Unchained All that I tell you now Sure as a Sacred Vow I may be Bloody,
but I am unbowed
(THE GODHEAD): Die, fall on your Sword, fall on your knees Die like your Son
nailed to his tree Die by my Hand, die by my Sword Right on this Site,
Vultures defile
(ENDYAMON): Die, fall on your Sword, fall on your knees Die in the Sun nailed
to these trees Die by my Hand, die in my Heart Flung from the Heights, forever
fall
I sing of Power, Magick and Might A Sonnet of Pure Victory A Hymn to the
Fearless, the Savage, the Brave The Spirit of our Liberty Total my debts,
tally my sins, charge each offence on my Scroll I'll never alter the course of
my Steele, I am the King of my Soul
Lashed by the Winds of Fate Stung by the Gods of Hate I'm Rising in Power
through Murdering Rain Stronger than Faith allows Braver than Hero's Vows My
Head is Bloody, but I am unbowed I AM POWER, POWER ! ! ! ! ! ! !back to top
Mind, Body, Spirit
(ENDYAMON): On the Bridge of Hades, searching for a Sign On the brink of
Knowledge, there's no time Shadow of the Horseman who is sworn to rise Seven
are now waiting in the Skies Warring Angels forage, Scavengers of Pain I am
born to Power, Courage is my Name
(HUMANITY): Rise on the Wings of Truth, to the Sun We know that Forever lives
inside . . . MIND, BODY, SPIRIT . . . All are One
(ENDYAMON): Rising like a Tower, Fortune's Torch revives Slicing every Rule
that will divide Who will hold the Red Queen when misfortune cries Seven Bands
are waiting in the Sky
Murder and Fire and Pain is the Sign Swollen with Power your Blood is my Wine
And I know !
(HUMANITY): Rise on the Wings of Doom, to the Sun We know that Forever lives
inside . . . MIND, BODY, SPIRIT . . . All are One
MIND, BODY, SPIRIT . . . All are One ! ! !
(ENDYAMON): Prizing only Valor Numen steal the Light On the brink of Knowledge
Burning Bright Shadow of the Horseman who is sworn to rise Sin and Death are
waiting in the Skies Murder and Fire and Pain is the Sign Swollen with Power
your Blood is my Wine And I know !
(HUMANITY): Rise on the Wings of Death, to the Sun We know that Forever lives
inside . . .
(ENDYAMON): I see my Vision, I see the Line Circling onward, looking for Nine
I know the answer is not to be found Searching in Darkness with eyes of the
blind And in the Morning, Two will remain To carry us onward, to Guard the
Flame That we know . . . There'll be time . . . for All . . , for All We don't
need you, we're fine on our own We don't want you, leave us alone . . .
Fortune is Fire as Numen we Shine Invoking the Power, your Blood is my Wine
and I know . . . The Mind is a Tower, the Body sublime The Soul is the Power,
your Blood is my Wine and I know . . . Leave us alone ! ! !back to top

Through Blood And Fire
(THE GODHEAD):I am the Master of this World of Ours You are a Thorn in my side I
am the Rock upon which you will break Freedom or Death, you decide For in the
End there is no meaning to find Only the Raging Sea and I will be there at the
Door
(HUMANITY): THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - promises and lies THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE -

Sword Of The Gods
(THE SWORD to I take to the Air, Fear breaks the will of denial ENDYAMON): You
look for me there, hunting the Skies I am soundless I fly to the Rainbow, I
Conquer the Sky
The Hammer of Death, THE SWORD OF THE GODS Grant every Wish of Blood that
calls to Blood I rise on the Air, I rise on the Sea Smashing the chains of
denial for me THE SWORD OF THE GODS !
You look for a Sign, nothing will reveal the Hour The Burning of Rome was only
a glimpse of my Power My Armor is Flame Gold, I sever the Sky
The Hammer of Death, THE SWORD OF THE GODS Grant every Wish of Blood that
calls to Blood I rise on the Air, I rise on the Sea Smashing with Flame your
denial for me THE SWORD OF THE GODS !
Watching your children die Your fist to the Gods you cry, "Why must it be, why
am I damned, Forsaken", I have always served your Shrines and Alters Now I'll
see you burn !
(ENDYAMON): Why must this come to pass Gods of the Heaven's vast, await the
Night you die Now . . . THE SWORD OF THE GODS . . . Rise . . .
Cold yet Burning, calm yet so murderous We rise like Mist from the Earth As
Above so it shall be Below We invoke Death with one Final Prayer
Pain is the Sign Where I will find the only shred of Magick that won't be left
behind.
I take to the Air, Fear rips the Temples of Power My Law is despair, a Vision
of Flame I am blinding My Sword is the Rainbow, I sever the Sky
(THE SWORD): The Hammer of Death, THE SWORD OF THE GODS I am the Wish of Blood
that calls to Blood I rise on the Air, I rise on the Sea Smashing the Flames
of denial for me THE SWORD OF THE GODS !
(ENDYAMON): The Blood of Man is the Blood of Vengeance ! ! ! ! ! ! ! THE SWORD

Dust From The Burning (A Season In Purgatory)
(ENDYAMON): Back from the World between the Worlds There are no Masters that I
serve From Seven Points of Darkness Shining Heavens's Rays, Across the Ocean
floor What once was hidden now is raised
(ENDYAMON to Wrapped in the Holy Mists of Time EMALAITH): My Blood is yours
and yours is mine In Seven lives I've known you It always ends the same In
pieces on the ground Between the Ashes and the Flames
(ENDYAMON): DUST FROM THE BURNING - Fire and Water DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Sons and Daughters Slay all in sight, grant no respite The Flame of Justice
guides my hand DUST FROM THE BURNING
DUST FROM THE BURNING - Fire and Water DUST FROM THE BURNING - Sons and
Daughters In the Rising of Our Nation only the Strong Survive
Back from the World between the Worlds There are no Masters that I serve From
Seven Points of Darkness Shining Heavens's Rays, Across the Ocean floor What
once was hidden now is raised
DUST FROM THE BURNING - Fire and Water DUST FROM THE BURNING - Sons and
Daughters Slay all in sight, grant no respite The Blade of Justice guides my
hand
And the Day goes on by Caught up in the grip of their Lie Fire and Water,
Proud Sons and Daughters After we die, after we die, only their Fear Remainsback to top

(ENDYAMON "Show you no mercy, we're far from the Light in PURGATORY): Sign in

Sun, I know their Names I see the Colors turn and run, I stay the Same. There
is no meaning when the promises are lies I'll bring you pain, far from the
Light . . .

A Shadow Of Fear
(THE GODHEAD): Black Cypress falling, cold winter snow What are you asking, what
should you know ? ? ? Gods of Deliverance bleeding in shame Don't pierce the
Heavens lest you remain Divine . . . Divine . . .

bleeding instead Gods of Deliverance searching in vain Every last hour marks
off your reign

not what we're told The Gods of Deliverance, the Black Stars align The only
Survivors our World is unkind for we know . . .
Victims of the World ! ! !
(ENDYAMON / We wander the Desert, the ice and the snow HUMANITY): Remember the
Future is not what we're told The Gods of Deliverance, the Black Stars align
The only Survivors are killed in their prime for we know . . . We already know
. . . we already know . . . already know . . .
(ENDYAMON to Black Cypress falling, cold winter snow EMALAITH): All that you
hope for hidden and sold Cries on the Tempest, I can't feel your eyes . . .
