The noose is hanging on the gallows-tree
It is time to rejoin all those
Wandering in dreaming sleep for eternity
In the hall of the legends of old
Inveigled by the dark lord to dream of hell
Asleep upon the dead black sea of oil
That made the hellfire burn with strength
I watch the world...through eyes made of embers

The struggle within is lost each night
But there is no surrendering
I climbed the walls of despair
Only to find the abyss that lies beyond
Alone in darkness and silence
Trained to fight and to always win
What a formidable foe I face
The monster that is me

An untamed force of pure destruction
Raging inside the mind and soul
A beast that never bows to none but its own will
Struggling to merge to become one with me

And so we ride forged as one
Towards the merciless storm of anti-life
And onwards to the beckoning darkness
Where all the mortal sins and wickedness resides

Deeds of rancor - set it all ablaze
Deeds of rancor - in order to erase
Deeds of rancor - they are a necessity
Deeds of rancor - a nihilistic philosophy
