lyrics

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!
