Track Name: And the Desert Calls My Name
And the desert calls my name

And the desert calls my name
Empty but feared by many
Godlike in the waste I am
Cherish this forever

Loneliness is my kingdom
Emptiness is my seat of kings
My dreaming is my escape
My wisdom drinks from fear

And the night haunts my soul
Filled with reverence and terror
The souls of dead encircle me
As I slowly pass away…
Death is closing my weary eyes
Sweet is her touch when we are alone
Together as lovers counting the hours
Of final tenderness before the dawn

And the desert calls my name
In deadly silence I take my throne
Cherish this leaving forever…
As I never did
Track Name: Daemon Sultan
Daemon Sultan

The Cosmos is burning - black radiance scorching
The Void swirling – feverish madness dancing
The Blind God is piping – evil from the blistering mouth
Carve your eyes out – the idiots are rejoicing now

The music unholy – drums beating faster
The rhythmic destruction – insane reconstruction
The Cosmos is trembling and the souls enter madness
Unspeakable terror in the center of the creation

My own thoughts are not safe anymore
Of what I have read and what I have seen
In old wicked texts and the scrolls of wisdom
Above the stars in the oceans of the infinity

In the kingdom of the Daemon Sultan
Dance along the idiots!

My own thoughts are not safe anymore
For I have seen and felt the insanity of it all
The endless piping from the flute of the Idiot God
Echoes through Cosmos and the vast deserts of mind
Track Name: Cthulhu
Cthulhu

Sleep broken by whispers
Whispers haunting dreams
Dark dreams exhausting
The weak and fragile sanity

Away across the tides
Your cursed tomb awaits
Dead but never gone
Calling through my sleep

Whispers in silence
Visions of madness
Signs of power
In wait of rising

That day is coming
Dark depths will shatter
The stars will crumble
From all your might

Demonical apocalypse
Tyrant's sleeping wrath awakened
The high priest of the Old Ones
The wolf to rule the sheep

Who will stand in the way?
Cities of men will fall to dust
New hymns will be sung
By unhuman tongues

Whispers calling away
Cold and dark whispers
To unknown places
To unknown madness
Track Name: With the Deep Ones I Descend
With the Deep Ones I Descend

Father Dagon! Murky oceans calling
In darkest abyss thy spawn will prosper!
Slithering and immortal
Haunting the depths of madness

Fathoms deep below the ocean’s crushing waves
In coral castles the blasphemy ignites
I am enchanted by the ancient magic of the waters
With the Deep ones I descend!

Father, your cult is growing stronger every day
With savage rites of worship and of sacrifice
To gain the wealth they give their daughters
Unite the races through undying breed

Fathoms deep below the ocean’s crushing waves
In coral castles the blasphemy ignites
I am enchanted by the ancient magic of the waters
With the Deep ones I descend!

Father, murky oceans calling!
Deep below the crushing waves
To your madness I descend!

The murky depths are calling me to leave the land behind
To Father Dagon, to his coral throne of power!
I am enchanted by the ancient madness of the waters
With the Deep Ones I descend!

The madness reigns!
The Abyss claims you!
The Water is your grave!
This is the end!
Track Name: Tombs of Wizards
Tombs of Wizards

Oh, Egypt! Great was the power of your pharaohs
Still stronger the power of your dark wizards!

Only the madmen enters in tombs of wizards
Where dreadful silence keeps their secrets
The air is thickened with terrible anger
Potent relics guarded by curses

Three black gifts
Fear, hunger, madness
Through pain and sorrow
Brought me great wisdom

Oh, desert moon! You witnessed the burials
Guide me by your light to find what I seek!

Only the madmen enters in tombs of wizards
Where mind is challenged by terror
The essence of darkness overcomes soul
Make haste and leave before it’s too late!

I am the madman, who enters the tombs
Embraced by fear, but hungry for secrets
In the trails of the serpents I make my way in
To find my destiny or my damnation!

Three black gifts
Fear, hunger, madness
Through pain and sorrow
Brought me great wisdom
Track Name: Ia, Shub-Niggurrath!
Iӓ, Shub-Nigurrath!

Iӓ, Shub-Nigurrath!
She of countless sins...
Her fertile womb dripping in blackened seeds
In beauty she descends to fool the mortal man
With torment she ascends to take all life with her

In dreams of lust she visits us from dark
She beastly kisses to adorn the chosen one
The evil spawns inside of her cursed womb
Damned be her name, as damned is this night

In darkest wombs of earth, from her the evils rise
Fear her silent nightly shades, for they bring pain
When light are naught and your mouth’s mute
In terror you embrace her with nothing more to lose…
Track Name: The Beast of Babylon
The Beast of Babylon

The ancient road leads me onward
To the ruins of the great Babylon
Terror lives where once kings reveled in splendor
In the darkness hides the unholy thing

With leather wings and screaming seven human heads
The night sky plagued by the spawn of Shub-Nigurrath!
The eater of the flesh and souls, forever cursed by men
The fear you bring can blind the weak, unknowing of your secret!

The Elder Sign protects me; the wrath of stars is in my hand
The monster's anger kept at bay, its evil weak against my wisdom
Come forth Balaka, the ancient wizard, let your mouth speak
Of untold secrets and hidden places beyond the space and time

Upon the monster's back I must fly away
To distant mountains beyond this world

The Umal root, that brings the life
Your healing power I now gather
To raise the body from the death itself
Restore the mind from deepest madness!

Great secrets are revealed to those
Who cast away the fear
Who dare to seek old Babylon
And face its beast in darkness!
Track Name: Scorpion's Gift
The Scorpion’s Gift

The night fires are blazing in distance
And murmuring echoes dance upon sands
I know your presence, sweet love of my youth
But now your eyes are lifeless and cold…

I can remember now how we embraced
The love and the lust of our young age
Torn away by betrayal and torture
The sympathy lost, engulfed by all evils

So black as its creator’s heart
Only the corpses are left behind by its venom
Not of this world, the creature of malice
The scorpion’s gift, the death from the desert

This is my gift to the love of my youth
I will rejoice in mourners’ laments
The night has come, and I watch from the shadows
How they embalm your corpse in the honey…

And who can count
The stars
Above her tomb?
Track Name: The House in the Lane of Scholars
The House on the Lane of Scholars

Protected by the night I do my work
Safe by the seals of power and colossal wealth
Slaves will drag the bodies to the cellar
The knowledge of the dead I shall obtain!

Dead flesh returns to life again
In rituals of arcane wisdom
There is no death that shall withstand
The arts of grave I can command

Boil the mummies in the kettle
Extract the salts essential
Raise the body, use the torture
Gain the wisdom, dump the corpse

Dead flesh returns to life again
In rituals of arcane wisdom
There is no death that shall withstand
The arts of grave I can command

Damascus – the jewel of the desert
Scholars’ work guarded by its walls
Within the nights of studies
Melancholy of the emptiness
Holds me in her loving arms

Damascus – the jewel of the desert
Scholars’ work guarded by its walls
Within the nights of studies
Melancholy of the emptiness
Holds me, holds me, holds me…
Track Name: Alhazred
Alhazred

Pain is greater teacher of men
Than delights and peaceful life
Call to the wind, to the heralds of despair
To bring you truth, and solemn end

I have suffered the fate of rejection
Endured in torment and starvation
I know the Old Ones and their dark ways
My verses burn with revelations

I have walked the endless sands
In the presence of the Crawling Chaos
And I have lost all I had in this life
The ghouls and vultures bare the witness

Soul torn apart by primal fears
Is the key to the path of the sages
One must learn the lessons well
The mad infinity is waiting always

I have ventured beyond the dreams
And I have tasted things forbidden
I have heard a thousand souls cry out
In the wings of flies upon the carrion

The destiny has many ways to hurt
And plenty still to grant rewards
And who can tell what is to come
Strange eons passing to oblivion…

Don’t close your eyes at night
Let fear and madness guide you
Embrace the truth of solitude
Devour everything…
