Track Name: i.The Cold Void/ii.Poltergeist
The goat licks salt off of bleeding feet
The child sucks puss from cancerous teat
The forest beckons as night descends
Icy ground is uneven, at last daytime ends

There is no light at the end of this tunnel
For the tunnel doesn't end
As we dwell in our current depressions
New ones begin...

Foreseeing the future
All hope is lost
Possessing through sin
Attracting through lust

Conjuring others
in a dreamlike return
The covens will chant
as black candles burn

Conjuring others
in a dreamlike return
My women will crawl
as black candles burn...
Track Name: iii.Sheogorath
Daedra assemble to take your life
Planes of oblivion sustain nothing
With rites to mock the heavens
(We) propitiate Sheogorath
Track Name: v.Storm Rite
With this holy blood
Painted down our lands
We pray to gods
To guide our weapon hands


With this ritual blood
Upon the black sun
Runic stones empower us
The year is one...

Track Name: vi.Molag Bal/vii.Blackreach
Corruption of youth
Enslavement of all
Hellscape, imperial
Takeover, subliminal

Dark anchors pull the way
Psychologically bestial
Esoteric, vampyric
Decaying skies, celestial
Track Name: viii.The Khlyst; or, The Last Tsar
Touching the sin that rests in your heart
Your eyes (are too) fatigued to sense his
Embroidered gems, which rest on his breast
Reflect his charm, Rasputin lives...

Turned by his hands of filth and wear
Petals that crumble are ill to repair
Deflowered again in orifices
You'll feel him come in, Rasputin lives...

(The) palace doors are broken down
Tapestried walls are covered in red
A Sanctuary of sanguine
Fires roar and drown the wind

A soldier's breath creates a mist
Upon entering the hostage cellar
Retrieving the family for the fire
Soon nothing will exist...

The Romanovs will perish under the snow...
