All hope in eclipse
A thousand nights one succored me
In the shadow of misanthropy
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 in humanity
An acid rain 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 enthrall a mindless zombie race

All hail, all hail, all hail the serpentine's gift
All hail, 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 hail, all hail, all hail the serpentine's gift
All hail, 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 atonements eyes lit a burning man in me
When love lay bleeding and fate's safe feeding
From wounds gored 'neath those cherubic wings
She of kindred light, gladly sacrificed, eternity just to be with me

As the moon whos silvered fingers play
On words and dreams too cursed for day
She led my hand to lands Id 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 hail, all hail, all hail the serpentine's gift
All hail, love fails, all hope lies in eclipse
All hail, all hail, all hail the libertine's wish
All hail, love fails, all hope lies in eclipse
And ignorance is truly bliss
