Track Name: Desecration
Night is falling over this place
See me crawling, trying to find my way
Into your flesh and bones
Feel you're not alone

One step forward over the edge
Losing your mind, heart attack
Inside your flesh and bones
I will built my throne
Like a sickness I'm crawling up your spine
Feeling soldiers die

Candles burnin down
To this deadly sound
Darkness around
Heaven's breaking down

Can't stop running, there's no more fear
Desecration is coming near
Above your flesh and bones
Soon will fly a crown
Like a sickness I'm crawling up your spine
Feeling soldiers die...
Track Name: Graveyard
All the words, it just hurts
To see you humans live
At the graveyard it becomes hard
To breathe but still to be quiet

You're comin to the grave
To cry about your father
You have sworn revenge holdin tight the cross
My greed so soon will be stilled

I've heard your steps when I slept
And I immediately woke up
I smell your fear, your salty tears
And I immediately get up

You're standin' at the grave
And laying down the flowers
Your existence so soon will be to end
My greed so soon will be stilled

So sweet it covers my teeth
In a hot and bloody stream
I rip off your coat and cut your throat
When no one hears you scream

Your flesh so softly breaks
The fire in your heart is out
All the time it takes
Forget what it's all about...
Track Name: Ceremony
Down in the dark woods by the fire
There are standing thirteen men
A circle of candles where the humans
Sacrifice lies within
If the wind blows right
And the moon glows bright
You can hear them whisper
And the victims desperate screams...

Oh ceremony
When the moon tells them
To worship the unholy lord
Oh ceremony
When the doom tells them
To believe in the unholy lord

Time has come, the master
Removes his pitch-black mask
The servants cross their torches
While he sharpens the sickle of death
Lightning strikes
Get the victim and the grail!
Now he cuts the victims veins...
Track Name: Rite of Blood
The taste of blood on your tongue
Destroy your victims
The smell of death in your lungs
Satan's your witness

When hate completely takes over
The urge to kill
To spread evil and pain
Is the mission, is not in vain

Rite of blood
Midnight Love
Rite of blood
Childhood lost

Looking for the next kill -
The meaning of life
So far down in the crypts
There's a light

The master's waiting for you
The servants gather
At the altar of doom
You'll live forever under the moon...
