Track Name: Grotesque Effluvium
I'm here, especially when you're alone
Lurking in the folds of your being
I crawl
I scream

Sometimes, in daylight, you forget me
But at dusk, in narrow labyrinths
I slip...
You can not escape

You love to feel my halitosis

I am the scary clown
The beast with huge white eyes
The threat with a monstrous jaw
I am the grotesque effluvium of your mind

As a disjointed puppet
I inexorably drag
In a disgusting oozing
Up under your skin

You love to hear my terrible imprecations

I am the scary clown
The beast with huge white eyes
The threat with a monstrous jaw
I am the grotesque effluvium of your mind

My face is well known to you
My ugliness fascinates you x 3

I am the scary clown
The beast with huge white eyes
The threat with a monstrous jaw
I am the grotesque effluvium of your mind

I tear the black and stringy flesh
Of your nightmares
I feed on your fear
Track Name: The Stranger
I was the helpless witness of my people's holocaust, hunted and wounded
I was the helpless of my fate
They burnt our fortress to ashes
Bestial conquerors
Children of Chaos
The world I used to know about to fade

They turned me into a monster
A weak and ugly creature
A mistake into my own plan
I am now the last descendant

An infertile body
Dressed in a red melancholy

O Rhalina, can't you see what they made of me
I am the plaything of destiny
O Rhalina, I am a stranger to this world
I hold the power of the gods

I was over the seas and reached an island, on a dead ship steered by drowned men
A sorcerer gave me monstruous gifts
Instruments of my revenge anchored in my flesh
Eye of Rhynn and Hand of Kwll
Infernal keys to netherland

I was turned into a monster
A cruel and powerful creature
A champion into my own plan
The desolate king of netherland

An infertile body
Dressed in a red melancholy

O Rhalina, can't you see what they made of me
I am the plaything of destiny
O Rhalina, I am a stranger to this world
I am the slayer of the gods

Six fingered hand and jewelled eyes
Those hideous treasures of mine
Eternal champion of the law
Eternally trapped in cosmic claw

Fifteen plans to conquer and I'll never see...
Fifteen plans to conquer and I'll never reach Tanelorn

I swear...
I swear revenge
Revenge will be mine

I was turned into a monster
A cruel and powerful creature
A champion into my own plan
The desolate king of netherland

An infertile body
Dressed in a red melancholy

O Rhalina, can't you see what they made of me
I am the plaything of destiny
O Rhalina, I am a stranger to this world
I am the slayer of the gods

Six fingered hand and jewelled eyes
Those hideous treasures of mine
Eternal champion of the law
Eternally trapped in cosmic claw
Track Name: Ancient Blood
Your beautiful skin shines like diamonds in the sunlight
The mortals say you look refined and it's true you are

But
I'll rise from...
I'll rise from the tomb
I'll rise from...
I'll rise from the grave

I deny your power, your beauty, your strength, your light
Bow before your master, before the ancient one

You walk among these beautiful preys
But listen to the screams that rise from the depths

Kneel down before the ancient one
Creatures of light
Revere the father you betrayed
Kneel before powers of the night

I will bleed you white and drink your precious blood
Prepare to suffer in the night of my desolate vault

You're so delicate and swoon at your own reflection
You forgot the taste of blood, betrayed our dominion

I'll drag you down to my realm of dust
You will endure my subterranean curse

Kneel down before the ancient one
Creatures of light
Revere the father you betrayed
Kneel before powers of the night

I will bleed you white and drink your precious blood
Prepare to suffer in the night of my desolate vault

I'll drag you down to my realm of dust
You will endure my subterranean curse

Kneel down before the ancient one
Creatures of light
Revere the father you betrayed
Kneel before powers of the night

I will bleed you white and drink your precious blood
Prepare to suffer in the night of my desolate vault

Kneel down before the ancient one
Creatures of light
Revere the father you betrayed
Kneel before powers of the night
