In the bowels of the church

 

Lied an altar of stone and birch

 

Bearing the stench of death

 

Under the knife for a final breath

 

To pay for forbidden power

 

Blood price at the witching hour

 

Tears of offerings when they wept

 

Each one jarred and kept

 

To feed a desire growing swift

 

For the elder god's tainted gift

 

So the offering goes

 

Then the presents begin to show

 

A gift of speed or special sight

 

Followed by one filled with blight

 

Fesh turning putrid and green

 

Givinfg off the dead's rotten sheen

 

Yet on the followers walk

 

Their jaws unmoving yet they talk

 

Given the blessing of the lich

 

Price for being a witch

 

They have their seer's eye

 

But rotting they can never truly die

 

So for eternity they must roam

 

Never settleing in any home

 

Creatures of living and rotting bone

 

Cost of gift to plague god on his throne

 

To be blessed twice

 

For sight and feeding ground for lice

 

And other creatures of scorn

 

A following of undead is born

 

They seek an end

 

But they can't pretend

 

When they reached across the rift

 

The plague god has his own special gift
