    "Darkness Descends" Lyrics

    Dark Angel

    The world now stands ancient, showing her age
    Antique, senile, archaic
    Peroration impending, not one to assuage
    The human remnants of earth
    Pandemic winds chill the soul
    Eradication of the will
    Nihilism extracts its toll
    Frightening the meekly servile

    Sacrosanct, the religious ones
    Are fast becoming extinct

    Choatic precursors of what will befall
    Permeate the night air
    The fear of the end preys on the minds
    Of all the soon-to-be dead
    With death at the hands of a hideous fiend
    A grisly fate to comprehend

    This city is guilty
    The crime is life
    The sentence is death
    Darkness descends

    Internal combustion, plutonic rage
    The bodies create their own hell
    The flame from within, unleashed from its cage
    Purging the great sins of all

    Admissions of guilt are all that are sought
    By judges who have twisted laws
    The quick abrogation of the populace
    Striking with great enmity

    Listing the ways in which we will die
    As the prophets claim we will soon
    Self-immolation that unjustified
    Stygian shores ahead loom
    The coffins are ready, the death warrant signed
    Depression has swiftly set in
    Inimical powers against humankind
    This charnelhouse ensanguined

    This city is guilty
    The crime is life
    The sentence is death

    Darkness descends

    Decaying, the ruins fall swift to the ground
    The carnage is morbid and great
    Mephitic deathstench of corpses abound
    The earth meets an untimely fate
    The horrific malignance, spreading its wings
    Across the expanse of the sky
    Contamination and all that it brings
    The judges commit genocide

    Retaliation, a useless ploy
    We've gazed into the face of fear
    We know that it stands for our own bitter end
