VII: The Sleeper will Wake and the World will Bleed

"Who knows the end? What has risen may sink, and what has sunk may rise. Loathsomeness waits and dreams in the deep, and decay spreads over the tottering cities of men."


Empty soul
Spews forth from my mouth
Wretched, accursed
Abomination
(Hope is naught...)
I watched as the spirits of untold thousands
Reached out to grasp the living world

The air fills with the stench of detritus
Before my eyes my soul is ripped apart by countless hands
As the gates (of R'lyeh) are opened my strength abandons me

Torments to follow without end
Darkness falls upon the deep
My weakened shell collapses
I reek of death
Slowly crawling to the sea
Bleeding black; trapped within this tainted carcass
Vile creature I've become!

I have transgressed mortal law
Its consequence
Inconceivable
My greatest fear comes alive
As the stars align
Cthulhu no longer lies dreaming...

He has absolved my humanity through pain divine
Visions of madness
Ancient Ones arise
All light extinguished save for the sky
Smoldering
Birthed from the tides, hideous R'lyeh surfaces!

Endless horrors
Beyond the grasp of the human mind
Mankind is driven to unspeakable atrocities
The world has been remade in His image

(Lead: Blackheart)

We are enslaved
Walking unknown planes
Eternally bound to the Dread Priest
"His Kingdom consumes the Earth
Lord Cthulhu holds all in servitude"
