Behold, the dawn of time Tree of life born from ancient kind Conceived, evolved, and derived The birth of all Cosmic Divine The Elven ones Descendants of incorporeal blood Keepers of the realm for centuries But nature’s eyes grow stale before their silent deity War comes Divide, the line turns grey Elder law starts to fade away Obscured by thoughts of enmity An evil seed Has grown this day From the scarlet roots it came Burrowed through the dirt But one remained Unscathed by the rot in the eyes of the wandering Forever known as a remnant of emerald flames You must run now and never return Forget all that you loved This burden is yours Awaken a light in the world ender This heart of stone a cursed oath, eternity alone Why? For what reason did I survive? Why? I will cleanse all that is life. DIE

Fortune has smiled this day As a spell opens up a gate From another time They came back Fragmented memories Unsure of what used to be Was the nightmare a dream? Something’s missing A figure unveiled from the past Fate proclaims the die is cast Distorted eyes Now fade Familiar somehow This aura is known “Father! I am your son!” Let it echo My bloodline carries on The past haunting me Memories buried Of the day demons three Butchered my family Vengeance I thought I’d gained Still, one remains Trapped with my father’s ghost Feeding off lost hopes These halls once shined But now, they’ve withered and died Wise one, your head SHALL BE MINE Step into the mirror where all faith has died BOW DOWN CONSUME NOW FACE DOOM No rest from the wicked one, a decade he did hide DEMON FIGHT ME YoU cAnNoT hArM mE hErE, bOy AsTrAl, My FoRm FLUcTuAtEs BeTwEeN tHe ReALMs NoW aNd FoReVeR YoUr cOrPoReAL CaNnOt ReAcH mE I aM tHe wIsEst oF tHe ThReE I aM tHe WiSeSt Of ThE ThrEe NOW MY SON BE-COME ONE WITH ME AND FIGHT INSANITY LEVEL 10 AGAIN HE KNOWS HIS TRUTH, HE KNOWS HIS PURPOSE HE SHALL AVENGE HIS NAME GLOWING A GHASTLY SHADE PLUNGED DEEP WITHIN THIS FAMILY CURSE LIFTED FATHER AND SON SHALL CLAIM IT’S FUCKING HEAD TODAY RISING THROUGH WHAT MUST SEEM AN ABYSS

Born into a brine Child of the eldest evil brain Through sacrifice A battle only the strongest can survive Enter your vessel Now Is the ceremony One stem from two Transcend Evolving puppeteer Hoarder of knowledge Now don’t be shy Welcome I am the master of your mind Gray matter divine Come, nourish me With your thoughts, your fears, your dreams I am A supreme being Mucus overlay Ceremorphosis to erase All that you are Imprint my personality With outstretched tentacles Losing control Now don’t be shy Welcome I am the master of your mind Gray matter divine Come, nourish me With your thoughts, your fears, your dreams I am A supreme being Psionic waves encompass Telekinetic skills disruptive An unwanted guest at the gates To overthrow, assimilate Telekinetic skills encompass Psionic waves disruptive You’re mine to perverse and create There’s no choice, this is your fate SAVING THROW Fade and concede You are now me MIND FLAYER MIND FLAYER Now don’t be shy I am the master of Gray matter divine I am the master Come nourish me I am the master of Your thoughts, fears, and dreams Now don’t be shy I am the master of Gray matter divine I am the master of your MIND

Reanimated life The wolves cannot die Lurking the mountainside Again they rise Awoken by their pride Guardians of the enchanted shrine Tearing with sharpened fangs Destroying those who would dare to climb Up the peak We try Stalked by their Design Bathed in the full moon’s light, bone and brand collide. This ridge shall be gone with the coming of the sun. Haste is needed now lest ye be damned Trapped forever, eaten alive, we’re running out of time We’re running out of time We must eat them We must eat their souls Escape from Wolf Mountain

Terrorize In the rivets and wood lives teeth and eyes Biding time Ready to strike and dissolve your insides This quagmire in plain sight The treasure it holds is… Death to those who are deceived A cache of malice, you’ll cease to breathe Too good to be true, it probably is Foolish ones The darkest dungeon holds no reprieve Be on your guard or accept defeat Roll the dice, loot or your life? The time has come Beware the Mimic; don’t take more than you need Beware the Mimic; it feasts upon your greed Try and take this all away from me You seek the answer Here lies the truth And this is what will remain of you Bones The symbol of avarice Gives an impassable test Seduction Of your fantasy A trap of promises in your wake Take this chance and rue the day Luck means nothing To this treachery Beware the Mimic; don’t take more than you need Beware the Mimic; it feasts upon your greed Beware the Mimic; a false reward you’ll know Beware the Mimic; your death it shall bestow Try and take this all away from me You seek the answer Here lies the truth And this is what will remain of you Blood and gore spread Your choice in red Crushed and you’re dead Now this thing is fed

We rode on the backs of giants through the snow Making our way through fractured ice This journey lumbers on A druid stands atop His mammoth bred for war Humming incantations For the coming storm The primeval one we hear His song in the distance An encapsulation Of the lands Break the spell Of death’s knell Follow the wisp Don’t open your eyes Or feel them shatter Before the permafrost Crystallized And so a frozen whisper soars across the sky The druids spell begins to swell Hailing diamond like ice Blind and deaf, confusion starts to set in There’s no turning back now We must fight and we must win SHIELDED SORCERY THE GIANTS TANK THE DAMAGE PALADIN REMOVE THESE WOUNDS YOU MUST KEEP THEM STANDING ROOTED ENTANGLING THE MAMMOTH CHARGES FORWARD HUNTER DRAW ON YOUR BOW AND PIERCE THROUGH IT’S ARMOR Break the spell Of death’s knell Follow the wisp Don’t open your eyes Or feel them melt Before conflagration Vaporized And so an ashen phoenix burns across the sky Flames arise, from its eyes incinerating this place Embers falling down, damnation begins There’s no turning back now We must fight and we must win We’ll never die! We’ll never die! Scream loud a righteous battle cry Become the fury that’s begun to smolder We’ll never die! We’ll never die! Not while this fire burns inside Strike down the enemy now drawing closer LAY THEM TO WASTE Break the spell Of death’s knell Follow the wisp We rode on the backs of giants to and fro Crushing all those who are in our way This journey lumbers on

Enter the gelatinous cube labyrinth at your own risk Check perception Now Now NOW A trail of slime is found but where have they gone Farther down? Fuuuuuuck It will betray your eyes Digesting all A living mound of transparent gel With a paralyzing shock stunned and helpless An aimless destructive force OH I can't see what's in front of me You stepped right into a gelatinous cube You’ve been engulfed by a gelatinous cube You can’t escape a gelatinous cube You’ll fucking die, gelatinous cube Can you see the pressure building right before your eyes In these walls of death corroding Earn your freedom NOW Escaped this narrow encounter But wait, something drags closer They’re on all sides! Acid fills your lungs and your eyes waste away Nothing left to bury but you are welcome to stay in the cube Slime will bubble from All orifices if you Can’t escape this tomb Gelatinous cube You stepped right into a gelatinous cube You’ve been engulfed by a gelatinous cube You can’t escape a gelatinous cube You’ll fucking die, gelatinous cube Can you see the pressure building right before your eyes In these walls of death corroding Earn your freedom AGAIN

Awaken the ire Draw the flame from stone Face the wrath of the immortal EMERALD DRAGON Flying away from the ashes she goes Ascending the sky Towards the infinite of the unknown This blistering light Clouds stream through her claws A sonic display Her body turns jade and explodes Incinerate Fire stretching from her maw will boil the world away We are the chosen ones Side by side The darkness the light and shades Together we DIE STUCK AN INFINITE LOOP OF DEATH HOW CAN WE BREAK FREE HEED YOUR ECHO’S RUINATION ADAPT AND DEFEAT Fire stretching from her maw will boil the world away Just because it can’t be killed doesn’t mean it can’t be slain Torn apart conscience forever writhing in a grave We are the chosen ones Side by side The darkness the light and shades Together WE RIDE YOU CANNOT STOP THIS NOW DIE CRY IN FEAR COWARDS FACE THE FLAMES RETURN FROM WHENCE YOU CAME YEOOOOW ATTACK FALL, REPEAT THIS STRUGGLE A CYCLE YOU THAT’S YOUR UNDOING WHAT WAS ONCE SET IN STONE UNRAVELS THROUGH INGENUITY ATTACK FALL, REPEAT THIS STRUGGLE HAVEN’T I KILLED YOU BEFORE? BREAK YOUR MIND POWER OF TIME We rise from The grave each time again Despite your efforts A powert Not meant for this world Shall rest with you Remember when you thought you’d defeated the warriors Of DETHLEHEM? Let the sun rain down on thee Embrace this golden age
