    Lyrics

    Lurking in the shade
    Of dark and fragrant trees
    Shirking from the rage
    That tore the heavens free

    A vagrant angel
    His with span to see
    The garden swell with terrors
    To banish man and Eve

    Another fall from grace
    Whiplashed from the gates
    Half naked and insane
    Full blooded, breasted
    Nerve ends tested
    To behests of pain

    A sombre lot to gain

    As the storm slid in
    Borne by carnal winds
    The upper ether thinned
    And therein sat abominations

    Satan seated there
    To savoring the reek of desolation
    But their dank despair
    Moved his speech to leech the air

    "Behold the golden door
    Paradise is lost
    So praise me as you raised your Lord
    And I shall thaw this gnawing frost"

    Another fall from grace
    Whiplashed from the gates
    Half naked and insane
    And destined for a spiteful fate

    Wherein evil sought the shamed
    As pawns in greater stakes
    Across this cosmic game
    To win the hand of darkness and
    Set her in her rightful place

    Cursed is the ground for thy sake
    In sorrow thou shalt eat of it all the days of thy life
    Thorns also and thistles shall bring it forth to thee
    And thou shalt eat the herb of the field

    In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread
    Till thou return unto the ground
    For out of it was thou taken
    For dust thou art and unto dust shalt thou now return

    With that the pact was sealed
    And as creation reeled
    Bewitched oration filled
    The hearts of all
    Who came to crawl
    Upon these earthen fields

    A sombre lot to till

    A wracked black acid song
    Spat from the massive throng
    Of Seraph knelt along
    The deep red welt to domination

    The deep red welt to domination
    (Domination, domination, domination)
    The deep red welt to domination
    (Domination)
    The deep red welt to domination
