With fire and sword, with water and dagger
With the assistance of thunder and rain
With the open sky above I concieve
With the Blood and with pride I unchain…
Into spirals coiled His Wisdom
Venture forth the Maskim Ways
Under the Sign of the Foremost Lord
Tread the Sands of the Farthest Shore!
… the Farthest Shore!
His Will penetrating the essence of my being
His Dream of Dark Majesty I share
… I Share! … I Share!
Chanting… Chanting… Forevermore!
Like a Tree, chained to the earth
But always reaching for the Stars
Through the sands of Sheol bleeding I crawl
And I know that I’ll reach the Sea…
And His breath raving, tearing at me
Pulling me down it compels me to kneel
Cold Steel embrace, shivering Kiss of God
Stripped naked I lie feeling old, So old
From beginning to end I witness
The Names of the Dead
