lyrics

WALK UPON THE PLAINS OF DEATH WITH ME,
WE WILL STUMBLE UPON THE BLIGHT OF HUMAN LIFE.
HEAR ME FATHERS OF THE PODIUMS AND CROSS,
I AM MORE THAN YOUR GOD CAN EXPELL AND RESTRAIN.

WITNESS MY BRANDING OF THE LANDSCAPE WITH FLAMES.
THE CORPSES STREWN AND GUTTED BEFORE MY THRONE.

MY WRATH WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN,
AS I'M RELISHING IN THE SLAUGHTER OF MAN.

MY INSATIABLE GREED WILL OVERRULE THIS PLANET.
FRIGHTENED BEINGS SCURRY INTO THE BLACK OF NIGHT,
UNAWARE THAT I EXIST IN THE DARK.
MY REACH EXTENDS TO THE SUN,
MY HAND WILL BLOCK OUT THE LIGHT.

THERE WILL BE NO PLACE LEFT TO ESCAPE MY GLOBAL HARVEST,
AS I CONSUME AND ENVELOPE THE SHADOWS WITHIN.

SALIVATING AT YOUR PAIN.
TENDERISING THE INSANE.

WHY DO YOU FIGHT ME?

TEETH SHARPENED ON THE BONES OF MY VICTIMS,
CRIES CRUSHED UNDER THE CRUNCH OF MY GAPING BITE.
THERE WILL BE NO EXEMPTIONS,
I WILL DEVOUR THE CHILDREN FIRST.

I NEED SWEET FLESH TO LUBRICATE MY JAWS,
QUENCH MY THIRST WITH THE OCEANS AND RIVERS.
STARTING WITH THE EARTH, I WILL BEGIN THE FEAST.

I WILL FEAST ON THE EARTH.

MORSELS OF MEAT, CLIMB INSIDE MY MOUTH
TOGETHER WE WILL BECOME ONE BEING.
FUSE YOUR MIND WITH THE INSIDE OF MINE.MORSELS OF MEAT, CLIMB INSIDE MY MOUTH.TOGETHER WE WILL BECOME GOD.

WALK UPON THE PLAINS OF DEATH WITH ME,
WE WILL STUMBLE UPON THE BLIGHT OF HUMANITY.
HEAR ME, PREACHERS OF THE PODIUMS AND CROSS,
THIS WORLD WILL EXPIRE.

I WILL FEAST ON THE BLIGHT OF HUMAN LIFE.
I WILL FEAST ON THE PREACHERS OF THE PODIUMS AND CROSS.
