Torn flesh and ripped skin,


Thirst for blood burning deep within,


Majesty of a bloody claw,


Forcing men into its maw,


Creatures once part of humanity,


Only now they reek of blood and insanity,


See the feral look in their eyes,


Know soon it's time to die,


Causing the ruin of bloody bone,


Chief among them sits on his skull throne,


Reveling in their sadisitc pleasures,


A force of evil beyond measure,


They score through the hamlets of the land,


Killing and rennding by a merciless hand,


Some escape to the outer rim,


But even then survival is grim,


Not about to be cheated of prey,


These beings seek to kill and flay,


Their own bloody master,


Makes his creatures hunger faster,


Till the drive to kill,


Forces out any other will,


In a symphony of gorey majesty,


Mankind faces its bloody tragedy,


As the claws tear and rend,


Mothers tell sons this is the end,


Saying just go to sleep,


Ignore how the bloody things creep,


But the sight of human child,


Drives the ferocious things wild,


Tearing throw the walls,


Answering the bloody call,


Throats cut and torn,


Feasting upon the newborn,


Shrieking into the night,


Painting a image by dawn's light
