The weeping gray, dripping miasma
The darkness swarms all around
In seething decay, revulsion of anima
Loathesome, maligned, you drown

We breathe the scent of freedom
From the rotting corpse of will
A feast of dreams to feed the slave
Who hungers for his fill

Endlessly they come, these despoilers
Sowing blight in ravenous tides
Peals of thunder announce a new reign
The RED torrents will wash away

Give up your gain, live as a Ghost
Subverted pain is innermost
For all

We rot within, we rot without,
We rot in Sin, we rot in doubt,

The stench of our contagion
Infecting all from birth
The choking death of ageless toil
And Torment on this Earth
