"A Demon Rising" In the eye of my mind I see myself Of demon ken, scarred and fallen: Raping trust and taking all I yearn for An unleashed force Like the Hammer of Thor. Engorged in lust Swollen in pride Now see this demon rise. Unrestrained, unashamed A whore to my humanity, Uncontrolled, I lose my soul And feast upon profanity. In the eye of my mind I see myself Skin burning black, charred and cracked: Leaking flames of iron ferocity And overcome By my atrocity. Engorged in lust Swollen in pride Now see this demon rise.

"Last Stand on Gibraltar" In Gorham’s Cave, out of the cold, we huddle round The Fire of Nerfil we have burned for generations, Weary and worn down, the coughing claims the Ancient One. Fear dances in the flames for we are abandoned: Our Gods have fled; the winter is without end And the Southern Devils hunt us down… On the brink, last in line Pushed into the corner, Out of hope, out of time Facing extinction… Last stand on Gibraltar! Last stand on Gibraltar! The seasons stand encased in ice, a frost wind blows Across the marsh it bears the sounds of chanting, They come for us; black faces mad against the snow. Rage courses in our veins for we are too few: They come for blood and blood is what we’ll give them And with violence curse the Whore of Fate… On the brink, last in line Pushed into the corner, Out of hope, out of time Facing extinction… Last stand on Gibraltar! Last stand on Gibraltar! With club and spear we smash into their scrawny forms One last dance with The Bear God in our hearts Crushing bone, tearing flesh, roaring out defiance! Hate shines in our eyes for this is our end-time: Despair and anguish; the Devils kill the children And beneath the insect swarm we fall… On the brink, last in line Pushed into the corner, Out of hope, out of time Facing extinction… Last stand on Gibraltar! Last stand on Gibraltar!

"Another Winter" Just another winter, death hangs in the air Falling from the trees surrounding me Like the ghost of memory Saddens me. Just another winter, death stalks my shadow Sliding past my guard, clutching at my heart Squeezing out the tears of grief Breaking me. Just another winter, death fills deep my lungs Settles on my shoulders like the gentle snow All around, within, without Becoming me.

"Annihilation In Equilibrium" Observe! It all flows down to nothing Pooling at the lowest point. Observe! The metal cools, tides subside Heat and motion standing still. Annihilation in equilibrium It all falls down, Entropic force triumphant When nothing is crowned. Light and sound decay to heat and flatten like mercury Pressure and form cease to be, without the rule of gravity. Observe! Our naïve and frantic game Scrambling to develop threats Observe! Our faces turned away But the end is waiting, all the same. Annihilation in equilibrium All is worn down, The universe is perfect When nothing is crowned.
