A cold husk of evil The black smoke grows Passed unto the next life Bereave for her mind Awaken the vapour of death A creeping haze upon her Awaken the frostitute The bride of decay The hissing sound in the wind, with vigor and haste She spreads like a mist, the forest; now death, Now the movement of pain in your veins, The poison, the nightmarish rage and hate The piercing sound of her breath A heaving punctured lung Reak of lacerations and infection Spew forth from the mouth Disgusting and vile The stalling sickness Becoming the subordinate evil, The demon, a witch, Bride of satan The crafter of pain and evils The watch begins, Evolving, changing men to beast, Cursed with bloodlust, cursed with hatred Succubus, arise in black Inordinate pain be embraced May fear and hopelessness accompany death, May pain and dread be seen at the end.

The burden of years, the sapping, the leaching Taking in what’s most coveted By others alike, a transient The life in smoke Into the skies, like birds of prey, the liquid moves through the shadows She pecks at the flesh of the mind. Feeding, feasting, draining, all at the same time The curse of time, in more of darkness than you’ve ever known Repay those debts, as it was written Give back to the darkness, That has been so kind, Repay your debt to the dark smoke To it, a victim to come. Endless bodies and lives to come. The mind, like a serpent unwinding Rotting away to emptiness A poison that cannot by siphoned away Toxic visions corrupt what lies inside. seeking to survive, survive. It’s not a sickness you know, it’s curse, a shadow inside It’s not a sickness you’ll ever know, breeding death to stay alive.

The binding arrangement, bestowed upon the witch Into the horror of the dark Under duress, the crippling haunting fear compounds The inconceivable terror, combatted by her vigorous intent to survive Coeval with the blanket of fog, a world woven with peril and evil, as the winged creatures of the night circle unwaveringly. to feast. The inconceivable terror, Asmodeus’ weapon Forced to serve Asmodeus’ weapon Compelled to deliver Harvester Destroyer Reaper of souls Eternally in Apollyon Breathe in the horror of the dark

Follow the black smoke Follow the stench into the deep Drawn in by the lingering, dark, sour reek of impending death Use the craft to perform the duty The unquenchable thirst, the miasma of rot. Surrounded, completely. It speaks, it calls. From the filth it stretches into her nostrils, The demands of Mors are binding. Death and nothing more. The thirst floods the mind, Incontestable urges, the hunger engulfs the body Inescapable as the hunger of the wolf The hunger not of body but soul Taken by moonlight, delivered by the witch For the privilege of life and the curse of time With limitless rage, explore the power. Explore the fresh hells behind your eyes. With limitless rage, explore death Mirroring the fear of despair Follow the stench into the deep, Drawn in by the lingering dark, The sour reek of impending death, The demands of Mors are binding. The limitless anger of the great antiquity The hunger not of body but soul, Taken by the moonlight, Delivered by the witch.

Slowly, his eyes are unlatched, against his will, Blue rays all around. His breath was a wheeze of black smoke From his lips, a silent, helpless cry. With his hands nailed down beside him The living crucifixion Hypnogogic hallucination A sickening truth we must swallow She approached him ominously, He smelled the stench of her eternal desolation Then, overshadowing his frozen torso She reached for him with her putrid claws With crushing force, she pushed down on his chest In an attempt to wring his quivering heart dry Behold, She had consumed the wyrms , That manifested in his feeble conscience. Enfold, Disease and solitary despair, Infected herself with the misery of man.

Plagued, crowned, by destitutions thorns. The unholy mother of impure delusion. Her acid womb, wilting, had regurgitated toxic fruit, The perpetual suffering lamented on winds sour, A hysterical cry purged forth, carried to deaf heavens.

Crushed by the merciless hammer, of a poison running deep within, Drawn in by fierce lust grown further than the thirst bequeathed Demonic power withers, from the infinite destruction cast Inward by sullied dreams and nightmares plucked from ominous hells The fire burning deep replaced by dwindling embers, A charcoal left behind, crumbling into dust and nothing more Once a mighty flame now empty, dry and powerless She burns his symbol into her flesh Calling out his name, for the dark lord to aide No answer from Asmodeus, no answer from Satan The witch cries out in agony Clutching at her chest she crawls, across the forest floor Blurred between this world and next, her mind drifts constantly Turned back to dirt, she calls out, screaming with furious anger Curse you Salem, destroyed, Through the eyes of the dying, mirroring the despair and hopelessness felt Black tears stain the skin, searing acid leaking out, Through the eyes of the dying, mirroring the despair Black tears bore a hole in the earth She walks alone, through the valley of the damned, Aimless and breathless, clutching at her chest, Seeking to survive, the hard-wired human instincts Fighting with hysterical strength Howls and screams unheard Or furthermore unwanted death cries resound, light dies Believing like a fool that help would arrive From the most decrepit creatures alive From incomprehensible evils that dwell within, The immeasurable evils that lurk in the shadows

Mustering what strength remains, hoarse from screeching death Blood stained, filth encrusted, withering The husk of evil dwindling to a shell of a human the feeble creature crawls onwards In the serpent tongue, chanting back mindlessly into the cold air, The fog of their breath, the whispers taken crawling through her skin The Secrets of the black art failed to sustain The powers of the dark lord reduced The pentagram in her flesh burns cold, with open wounds she curses her undoing, Steel slicing her hand, draws no blood, to join the undying in hell for eternity. Limply swinging limbs, disoriented and mesmerised by the euphoric touch of mortality’s embrace. The fog of their breath The whispers taken crawling through her skin The Secrets of the black art failed to sustain The pentagram burns in her flesh, cold, with open wounds she curses.

The scourge of immutable human lust. Filled with a taste of bitter odium and regret, Beyond mortal power, the tempter illustrates perfection. Writing finally the epilogue of her journey, Planting seeds of discontent in the uncoverers, The plague approaches eventually, death awaits all, Pestilence be passed on. The growth containing shadows knows no boundary of darkness, Gateway to Abaddon, through the gate of dust, Luring the undivine and insignificant, blinding them with a dark canopy of illusion, Distorting the senses, Belial, the father of lies. It is inscribed at the entrance: ‘Ye who enter, abandon all hope’ It is written, Truth. The growth containing shadows knows no boundary of darkness Gateway to Abaddon, through the gate of dust, Stares downward, to sempiternity, luring the undivine and insignificant.

Wretched, on her knees in the dirt She hopelessly confessed The defeat, Her demise Hopeless, Forlorn, She grasped at the sky And closed her eyes, No salvation And no… tomorrow As the rain, drowned out the sky The end was cold and empty Abnegate, the pain of passing; No more Bemused by how she'd become so, powerless Perished, All had, perished Broken, consigned to oblivion From an unforgiving world As the rain, drowned out the sky The air was cold and stale Abnegate, The pain of passing; No more Bemused by how she'd become so weak Abnegate, The pain of passing; No more Bemused by how she'd become so weak The body, no use to the serpent of old.
