From a throat choked by rope
 

Came the guttural cry of lost hope

 

As  the lunatics mobbed
 

 

Had his dignity robbed

 

Shackled maimed feet
 

 

Led by his noose through the streets

 

Tore asunder both wings

 

 

All behold the fallen warlock king

 

Third eye plucked out
 

 

No more demon tongue
 

Or incantations spawning from his lungs

 

Make him slave to gravity
 

His mind becomes a hollow cavity

 

Bled dry of tears
 

 

There goes a being of endless years

 

Weep with blood
 

 

Then bury him under the mud

 

Leave to atrophy

 

Provided thy testimony

 

I sought reprisal high and low
 

 

I made a pact with the dark lords below

 

I spew forth plagues to taint their soil
 

 

To break their backs with fever as their bodies toil

 

I crept under the shadow of purity
 

To unleash my terrors in obscurity 

 

In my hour of pious wane
 

I drank in the powers of the profane

 

I turned to boundless catechism
 

 

Splitting the great whole with my schism

 

Behold my anathema of benediction
 

Flowered from my own spells and convictions

 

Sacrilege in Gethsemane manifest
 

Sevenfold nemesis awakes from rest


Anointed sin became flesh

 

A new mind made fresh

 

I emerged as the accuser of all
 

I made the prince born still in the royal halls

 

Hark the universe cries forlorn
 

Me the maker of the unborn

 

Bleeds from black lungs of hell
 

I the caster of these unholy spells

 

The crowd called for the rope around his neck

 

In two minutes he dropped and was forever wrecked

 

But his words cut like a sword

 

This man who served the infernal lord
