Mabool (The Flood)

Translation:
And, behold, I, do bring a flood of waters upon
the land, to destroy all flesh,
wherein is the breath fo life,
from under heaven, and every thing that is in the
land shall die...and I shall wipe away
the world I created upon the land.

May the lord eternal save his troubled child
As he passes through rain and storm
Behind the walls of this hallowed ark of wood
Our prophets found a revelation, which they have understood
Onto the lands of fearful heaven comes a flood erasing all
Landing as if a ruthless bird of pray to crush all human souls

The lightning colors the sky with flames of light
Hell shines above us and fires bright
Erasing the worksof the common man, all we hold dear is set alight


...

Translation: ...In the seventh day of the month, the same day were all the fountains
of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven had opened...
...And the waters of the flood, were upon the land...

Shattered glass reflects this shattered world, barren is the landscape here
Thunder roars as a lion caged, heat that comes like waves of fear
Oceans rise and rage as we watch the world powers fall
Redeeming their sinful ways with their souls
May the truth fill their hearts, let them see the light, when they embrace their gods

...

Translation: ...and the face of the land was dead...
Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.


Seas cover the works of timeless art
That once brought joy to human hearts
In halls of infamy this day shall live
Like the burning of Rome and betrayal of Eve
Like the fire raised at the witches' stakes

Return all earthly possessions
As ashes you return to earth, child of God, to face the divine lord who sits upon the throne - eyes sad
Go in peace and find thy faith
Evolve thy self and lose all hate
So a heaven you may creat

In this world of sorrowful ways
None shall live to see the light of day
Some may survive to tell this tale
If their belife shall conquer this gale
Damnation is the punishment bestowed
El Norra Alila the vengeful God
