Sacred Torment

lyrics

INFLICT YOUR PAIN ON ME,
BRANDISH MY BODY IN FLAMING RAGS.
LET ME SUFFER YOUR DEMISE.
THE DEATH OF HUMANITY,
NOW TURN YOUR KNIVES ON ME.
I HAVE FORSEEN BEING BURNT AT THE STAKE.

IT LAYS IN THE WAKE OF MY RESTRAINT
UNTIL MY CHEST BREAKS AND MY LUNGS COLLAPSE.
LIFE LEAKS OUT AND MY TRUE FORM IS FOUND.

ON DISPLAY FOR ALL TO SEE,
FEEL THE HATE OF THE WORLD ON MY BACK.
NOOSE AROUND MY NECK, YET A ROPE THAT IS SLACK.
MY PUNISHMENT TO ADHERE
AT THE HANDS OF THOSE FORSAKEN.
MY DEATH WITHHELD,
THE PAIN OF THE WORLD TO FEAR.

I PRAY FOR A WORLD TO BREAK MY NECK.
HOPING THAT MY EYES GO BLIND
AND MY BREATH TO ESCAPE.
WAIT FOR MY SKULL TO CAVE,
PRAY FOR MY VEINS TO DRY.

I WANT TO FEEL THE BLADES
CARVE THE FLESH FROM MY BONE,
FREE THIS PRESENCE FROM MY BRAIN.

AS I CRAVE TO BE SLAIN,
TO BE FREE FROM THIS MORTAL BEING.
I ADORE THIS TORTURE,
EVERY SLICE, JUST ANOTHER STEP CLOSER.

I CAN FEEL MY DEATH CREEPING,
THE SIGHT FROM MY EYES IS TAKEN
AND I LET THE NUMBNESS TAKE OVER.

DULLING MY SENSES.
RIPPED OUT OF MY TOMB OF FLESH.
LEAVE MY MORTAL BODY, I AM COMPLETE, I AM REBORN.

AS MY BODY IS LEFT TO ROT,
I ASCEND FROM THE HUMAN PLIGHT.
FOOLS MISGUIDED TO TAKE MY LIFE,
UNLEASHED FROM MY SHACKLES.
WHAT HAVE THEY WROUGHT? AND AT WHAT COST?
WHAT HAVE THEY WROUGHT? AND AT WHAT COST?

I WILL DEVOUR EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE EVER LOVED
I WILL FIND THE CENTRE OF THE UNIVERSE
AND TEAR OUT IT'S HEART.

I AM THE GOD OF DEATH.
WHAT HAVE THEY WROUGHT? AND AT WHAT COST? 

WHAT HAVE THEY WROUGHT?
THE DARK HALF NOW WHOLE.
AND AT WHAT COST?  THEIR TOTAL EXTINCTION.
