The knowledge of the ancients, the souls of the departed For aeons we have searched, through the cold and dismal sorrow Their voices of wisdom guide our path through the necropolis "To be as old as time, throughout the ages Throughout the ages, for death immune" We arrive at the sacred alter ascending the crumbling stone steps A hidden artefact lies beyond, sleeping within the mighty walls Clouded in mist and pale light, the secrets of eternity behold The key to the entrance of the damned, a pathway to the ancient forest The absence of the sun, the trees surrounding the sky The dark archways appearing within the hallowed horizon As time is standing and memories are fading The forest reveals itself in a splender of ancient glory "To be as old as time, throughout the ages Throughout the ages, for death is immune" Standing before the great vast forest A celestial voice speaks in anci ent tongues "Immortality is what you seek, you'll be Forever damned to this lifeless forest" The archways collapse, the pillars fall The entrance vanishes into the void of chaos No memories of previous lives Servants to the archaic gods The ancient forest of lifeless eternity Wandering amidst the home of the dead

The winds rage as a full moon rises Above the mourning of a pale dark sky The clouds depart from the sorrowful night Stars are reborn as the being's of light The rain falls upon this distant land But none remain to embrace it's being Echo’s from a distant realm A prophecy of this world’s demise Moonlight evokes the frozen night A requiem for a past now lost Deliver ours souls to the dark Wash away the chaos of this world The light of the moon shines from a distant past The calls of the wind, the whispers in the night A Pale glow covers the shadows of life A cold empty land, basking beneath the clouded dark "Everything vanishes but the light of the moon The soul is left to wander eternally with no rest The frozen night lay shrouded in an endless blackness The kingdom of life, now a shadow, forever forgotten" Moonlight evokes the frozen night A requiem for a past now lost Deliver ours souls to the dark Wash away the chaos of this world

Times scar leaves it mark upon this mortal body Forsaken I've wandered, blinded by the ethereal lights Becoming a withering illusion lost within the castle walls My search for the essence of being, immortal, undying I am the god of this realm, become a servant to your unseen master I will bless upon you the celestial gift of eternal being Consume your soul with the majestic darkness Sacrifice your body, your spirit is binded with I" Screams of anguish as my body’s consumed in the void Granted with the dark unholy power The shadows rise above the astral kingdom Eclipsing the lands to be forlorn in darkness Storms of destruction, the master calls my name The mournful cries of dying souls The kingdoms call over an empty wasteland A vision in the eclipsing moon I gaze upon the sky with lifeless eyes Wolves cry over the freezing night As darkness spreads for no light to exist Extinguished hope as all is fading Cursed to live this grim eternal life Shackled to the destroyer of light and time No dreams breed in empty lives The astral kingdom descends to the seas below The once mighty palace harvesting the great god I remain immortal, suffering the ages now forgotten Dark is the path to eternity

Chanting the dark spells of chaos and damnation I read from the obscure scrolls long forgotten by man An arcane magic, cryptic and haunting Summoning the all mighty destroyer of realms "Darkness engulf this world Show us the kingdom of shade Destroy the vale of time Bring the new age of cataclysm" Shrouded in the nightfall, dawnless are these days The sea's remaining frozen, suspended in the twilight Stars descend from the sky, the moon is now forsaken Lord of the infernal, master of the dark arts As I stand alone, in the ruins of the catacomb's The forests stand in silence, before they perish and die The voices of the dying masses, light of heavens fade away In the faint horizon, dark kingdoms begin to rise And now standing before me, is the end of mortal virtue I command the powers of the new world, the new era of bedlam Disappear into nights embrace, let the centuries pass on by I'll return to rule this dimension, with the powers of arcane magic

Riding through darkest, coldest nights Guided by the light of stars My horse trembling with fear My body so cold and withering With the knowledge of primordial beginnings An endless cycle of death and downfall To find the palace of the prophets And gain the power of timeless foresight The vast mountain range overlooking the towers The hands of time are beginning to turn I feel the blood of life from ages past Chaos is reborn "The bringers of new life, destroyers of the cosmos Shatter the spheres to this worlds ending reliance Come forth the new age, the dawn of calamity A sacrifice of souls, the power to end all" The secrets of the black arts lay within my being My heart of destruction, the powers to embrace at will I call forth the creatures, long forgotten by the times A spell of ancient darkness spreads itself throughout the lands The last of us gather in the confines of the palace As the endless suffering screams through the winter winds The wisdom of the departed souls flowing within my veins The lands once filled with life fall into the unseen abyss "The bringers of new life, destroyers of the cosmos Shatter the spheres to this worlds ending reliance" Come forth the new age, the dawn of calamity A sacrifice of souls, the power to end all" And everything Vanishes into nights dark vale The silver moonlight shines over distant hollows The pillars of creation descend to ashen ruin The light of the cosmos lay before my grasp The cosmic powers to command the darkness Nocturnally reborn to consume life
