Track Name: The High Priestess
Divinity of the crescent moon
Exists the arcane and ancient woman
For her gown gleams in mystery
To hold my inner truth

Honor me with timeworn wisdom
Clutch me on your pillars so high
I may witness your crown of Isis
To be worthy of this vision

Ishtar, mother of gods
Take me into the cosmic womb
Strip away the earthly illusions
To witness reality

Goddess of rebirth
Goddess of love
Goddess of war
Resurrect again
Track Name: Ethereal Monolith
From the mist of the mountain
Titan draws forth
For I will fight
This internal foe

Amongst the mist of the mountain
My fate shall close
Truth escapes my mind
Within the ethereal world

But still you dwell
In my nightly illusion
For our true desire
Is to meet once more

Upon the mountains
Over this river
To cross my sword
With your divine blade

Behold! the Monolith
Face this fear

Behold! the Monolith
Awaken me.
Track Name: Black Chalice I
Men chosen by the divine
Devise the new creed
Alter the articles of faith
Worship this new cult

Proclaim the end of days
Devise a utopia
Expel all church clergy
While fools reap in sin

Defile the innocent man
Starve the common man
Immerse them in sorrow
Compel baptismal fraud

The immortality is an illusion
This doctrine shall perish
Track Name: Black Chalice II
For your divine treason
You shall kneel at my altar
The true god's wrath
Shall reign upon your walls

The golden crucifix killed your prophet
Only to die as a false martyr
Now the true King of Jerusalem
Shall sit upon the throne

The lord's heavy hand
Peels away the skin
Hang from your cage
Raised on the holy steeple

Never shall you draw from your black chalice.
