lyrics

Disowned, lies a dismal carcass
Bound to my new beginning
In this, a purged catharsis
My corpse of irony’s rendering
Adorned with cowl contortions
Incisions from my wake
The remains of a hollowed distortion
A penance paid, again

Distilled beneath the freezing moon
A divine carcass lies frozen in time
Fragments of murder in a cadaverous swoon
Dyed limbs taint the odious state of sublime

Foul with the stench of decay
An eviscerated body lies in waste
Hoar frost to cleanse the stains
Of the dismembered and unchaste

And as I open my eyes
To visions of a carnal sway
I remember all the cries
Of this maddening disdain
Abomination, I plead for you
Amidst your acrid gates
I’ll tear them from their last breath
To cleanse them of their stains
O horror of horrors
Wretched in this den of sin
A contorted carcass
Of torn limbs and jaded skin
And this my crest of night
Above my friend of spite
I've held you to the end
Bloodletting Sacrifice

Bemoaned, this wintry darkness
Disfigured in my dawn of bereavement
Petrified in this abysmal carcass
Like the wraiths in judecca’s torment
Abhorred with squalid lacerations
In this odious state of mine
I try to cleanse the stains
Of this putrid stench of mankind

And as I open my eyes
To visions of a carnal sway
I remember all the cries
Of this maddening disdain
Abomination, I plead for you
Amidst your acrid gates
I’ll tear them from their last breath
To cleanse them of their stains
O horror of horrors
Wretched in this den of sin
A contorted carcass
Of torn limbs and jaded skin
And this my crest of night
Above my friend of spite
I've held you to the end
Bloodletting Sacrifice

Desolate in this crest of misanthropy
I sway in the arctic dirge of abhorrence
And yet I remain damned with the essence I detest
A morbid rendition of a sordid depiction
Self inflictions adorned with a carnal addiction
This chastened affliction of my murderous scorn

This is absolution
Purified in dissolution

And as I open my eyes
To visions of a carnal sway
I remember all the cries
Of this maddening disdain
Abomination, I plead for you
Amidst your acrid gates
I’ll tear them from their last breath
To cleanse them of their stains
O horror of horrors
Wretched in this den of sin
A contorted carcass
Of torn limbs and jaded skin
And this my crest of night
Above my friend of spite
I've held you to the end
Bloodletting Sacrifice
