lyrics

I, the King of Earth have risen nigh and from abyssal slumber transcend to
conquest. A tempter bearing fruit of Eden from the tree of the damned,
I, the King of Earth, of flesh and time call the wretched home to sew
revolution. Turn up the dirt, spill forth the seed, germinate infection
and begin the new breed.
I, the King of Earth with horns to Heaven, forever reigning over the seas.
Eat of body and drink of my blood. The cross of the Host sinketh deep in the mud.

I am the serpent, Caretaker of storms.
Brandished with midnight in each of my forms.
I am of shadows from mysteries old.
I will tear down the lies that you've too long been sold.

I, the King of Earth, the blackened-shepherd, with hook and hammer harvest the sheep.
Stripping them down naked in the cold, dead of night.
FRIGHT. Bound and banished from their kingdoms into the cold
without the warmth of God or Mother's arms to lovingly take hold.

I, the King of Earth
I am the serpent, caretaker of storms.
I, the King of Earth
Brandished with midnight in each of my forms.
I, the King of Earth
I am of shadows from mysteries old.
I, the King of Earth.
Destructor of lies that you’ve fucking been sold.

I am the serpent, caretaker of storms.
Brandished in midnight in each of my forms.
I am of shadows from mysteries old.
I will tear down the lies that you've too long been sold.
