    Lyrics

    All hope in eclipse
    A thousand nights one succoured me
    In the shadow of miss anne thropy-
    Sat gargoyle-limbed amid my licking flame

    A cruel tongue at work in her secret vaults
    Sent rebellion's embers into revolt
    The coming of extinction
    Synched to whimpers of my name...

    Legion I arose, a flood of inhumanity
    An acid reign to purify the world
    The asp at pharaoh's breast
    The atom split under duress
    A sniper at the gates of spattered pearl

    My heart, torn apart, left a rifled grave...
    Save for an unfurled flag of hate
    To enthral a mindless zombie race

    All heil, all heil, all heil the serpentine's gift
    All heil, love fails, all hope lies in eclipse

    Black bibles I inscribed,
    The words "damnation throughout design"
    Seemed a bitter truth far better for the lie
    For as hope was felled by reason
    Forlorn became the season
    And death was swift to swallow on the heels of life

    Loered souls, growing cold, tendered easy prey
    When heaven's flock, a fair game, dropped
    I bored of war with god with greater thrones to
    Claim...

    All heil, all heil, all heil the libertine's wish
    All heil, love fails, all hope lies in eclipse

    (There was not a prayer left in this wretched world)

    Then between the past and the ravening dark
    A sly messiah came
    In the thick of treaty with obligatory greed
    She stole the soul hate had sold away

    An ancient chill blew down the centuries
    That night atonement's eyes
    Lit a burning man in me

    When love lay bleeding
    And fates safe feeding
    From wounds gored 'neath
    Those cherubic wings
    She of kindred light
    Gladly sacrificed
    Eternity
    Just to be
    With me

    As the moon who's silvered fingers play
    On words and dreams too cursed for day
    She led my hand to lands I'd not accrued
    Where the faun dawn bathed her golden hair
    And faith renewed, leapt joyous there
    I praised their worth, then planned their conquest
    Too...

    All heil, all heil, all heil the serpentine's gift
    All heil, love fails, all hope lies in eclipse

    All heil, all heil, all heil the libertine's wish
    All heil, love fails, all hope lies in eclipse
    ... And ignorance is truly bliss
