You know your targets
Hunt them down, one by one

She has spoken...

I have sworn oaths
In tongues I do not speak to appease the voice
What voice? A voice!
All I know is it speaks to me in my dreams
My life is a picture drawn by a blind man - means without ends

I feel the skulking beast
With Her warm and wet breath
Approaching me
Her words are the sound of colors
But the message is clear
Blood must be drawn
Oh Nameless One
I'm Yours to command
May Your will be done

I live for You
Whoever You are

The storm dims the sunlight
It creates a perfect backdrop
A canvas so clean and pristine
For Her art sublime

The artist
The tools
The muse
And blood as the ink of the gods

The works must commence at once
Red I'll dye the night

I've become the terror of legends
Self-proclaimed Antichrist

Are the names I'm being called
Before the noose breaks my neck

And I thought the Beast had forsaken me
But she spoke again
Though your life is over you still emerge victorious
And with these words I die in peace

Dead, hanging limp as the crowds applaud

I won
