Hate Eternal - I, Monarch

Artist: Hate Eternal
Release: I, Monarch


1. Two Demons

I am duality
A being so consumed with the darkness inside of me
Through this pain I must endure
These beings that still haunt me

I am adversity
Within the sunder of the essence of my very soul
In this rage I shall remain
These creatures that become me

Come forth and purge yourself for what you are
Reveal thyself and become what you will

I am diversity, so weary of the angst
So weary of what I have become
Through this dread I will retain this penance that still haunts me

I am complexity
Within these walls that hold me, my past and my present collide
In this state I must sustain this morphing that becomes me

Come forth and purge yourself from whom you are
Reveal thyself and become whom you will

Writhing in my pain of a thousands years
I fear not my rival, I fear not my maker

I shall ravage the world in vein
Writing in my pain of a thousand years
I fear not my rival, I fear not my maker
I shall scourge the world in vein

2. Behold Judas

As I stand before thee, Master of the Arcane
Lest we forget your burden father
From beneath the binding of the irreverent one
Who is shroud in darkness
Revealed! Heathen to all that is sacred!

Behold Judas, betrayer
Behold Judas, behold
Curse thy prophet, abhor thy martyr
Behold Judas, deceiver
Behold Judas, behold

I serve myself unto thee, Master of the Labyrinth
Succumb we must to this promised design

From within you suffer
Your knowledge of your transgressions

I bow down before you, Master of the Kingdom
Under the guise of a holy existence
From the depths of all time
Is the man who claims to be our saviour
Emerged! Traitor to all that is holy!

Behold Judas, betrayer
Behold Judas, behold
Curse thy prophet, abhor thy martyr

Behold Judas, deceiver
Behold Judas, behold
Mock thy tyrant, cast out thy ruler
Behold Judas, betrayer
Behold Judas, behold
Curse thy prophet, abhor thy martyr

Behold Judas
Behold Judas
Behold!

Prevail I shall, Usurper of Darkness

Be gone!
Be gone!
Be gone!
Be gone!

I bestow upon you my contempt, Master of the Arcane
I bestow upon you apathy, Master of the Labyrinth
I bestow upon you malice, Master of the Kingdom
I bestow upon you savagery, Master of the Revered Palace

3. The Victorious Reign

The victorious reign!
We are the glorious order
Bound together by blood and by faith
Successors to a tradition
Are we the vessels of death?

Sworn to this alliance, we only speak of truths
Heretical in its shape, is it profane?

Devotees to the cause
Sacrilegious in its form

We are your purification, united by purpose and will
Affiliates of an allegiance, are we the blasphemous creed?

We are the infamous legion
A covenant of supposed heresy
Conceivers of a hierarchy
Are we the disciples from hell?

Sworn to this alliance, we only speak of truths
Heretical in its shape, is it profane?

Devotees to the cause
Sacrilregious in it’s form
Sworn to this alliance
We only honour him
Heretical in its shape, is it profane?

Devotees to the cause, is this profane?
Sacrilegious in its form, is this profane?
What sayest thou o king?
Shall you exercise justice during thou reign?
Or shall thou commit us to the flames? To the flames!

The victorious reign!
The victorious reign!
The victorious reign!

4. To Know Our Enemies

Prepared for death by this code of honour
Our weapon is our soul
Chivalrous in our stand with valour
Herald by many, but feared by all

Revered in our essence
Gallant in our fight we will conquer!
We shall command! We shall command!

With the mind we control our bodies, even if we rule no longer
In unification we shall learn, you can not dare abolish our strengths
With wisdom we shall lead, it is the way of the warriors
Propagate the masses, with the embodiment of who we are

Iconoclastic new age, we shall transform
We as warriors must know our enemies, we as warriors
We as warriors must know our enemies, we as warriors
We as warriors must know our enemies

5. I, Monarch

In this being, in flesh
There can be no absolution
Therefore I must shed my skin
In a world so fabled, so false

I, Monarch
Master of what shall be
I, Monarch
I, Monarch
Captor of what I seek
I, Monarch

In this shell, in flesh
There can be no solitude
I will not live in this facade
In a world of contradiction

I, Monarch
Master of what shall be
I, Monarch
Captor of what I seek
I, Monarch
I, Monarch
Victor of all battles

I, Monarch
I, Monarch
Sovereign of this domain
I, Monarch
To those who oppose me, death! Thou shalt die!
I, Monarch!

6. Path To The Eternal Gods

On this journey into death
I am beside myself in tremendous bliss
For this allegiance has been made
Shall my sins be absolved
Washed away by the blood of the sacred lambs
Yet I am not amongst the flock

The remnants of my life now become my vast illusions
Whilst exiled from your grace, with fortitude, with courage
I face all my fears, on my path to the eternal gods

With my wrath, with my disdain
I face all my fears, on my path to the eternal gods
As I cross over into my final place
I face all my fears, on my path to the eternal gods

As I bear trials in my final resting place
I face all my fears, on my path to the eternal gods

7. The Plague Of Humanity

How is it that you find, such discontent for our people
Such disrespect of our kind
You are the plague of humanity!
You are the plague of humanity!

Why is it that you deny the realisation of truth
While creating an actualisation of lies?
Your intolerance for loyalty, in acceptance of the indignity
The irony of the civilised world
You are the plague of humanity!

It was not always so, this insolence so insipid
For where there is truth, there are only lies
Is there in truth no pride, or dignity of the highest nature?
For where there is fact, deception only lies
I will say it once, I will say it again
Our nemesis is humanity, you are the plague of humanity!
You are the plague of humanity!

I see only weakness in you, the epitome of deceit
You truly are the enemy of our existence!

8. It Is Our Will

It is our will!
It is our will!
To conquer formidable foes
We will not concede, we shall not concede

To call upon all of our strengths
You will not halt us, you will not halt us
It is our destiny, it is ever so powerful
This mass that haunts us
We shall overcome all
Rise above we shall, rise above we shall
Rise above on our road of descent
It is our will!

To embrace the whole of our power
We will not concede, we shall not concede
To overcome hordes of the blind, you will not halt us
You will not halt us
To thrust ourselves in destiny, we will not concede
To avenge the fallen spirits, you will not halt us
You will not halt us

We are the rulers of the unknown rulers
We are the rulers of the unknown world

It is our will, it is!
It is our will, it is!
It is our will, it is!

Come forth and suffer your consequences
The inevitability, of your life and death
Menace to whom we consider frail
Hierarchy of this planet

It is our will, it is!
It is our will!

9. Sons Of Darkness

These final days are upon us
These final days are upon us!
Is this the final judgement of our time?
Will the end draw near?

Visions of the judgement of the dead
Vespers of the dying rhetoric
Is this the eternal?
Redemption forewarned
Will the stars fall from the skies?

Visions of the lakes of fire
Vespers of utter destruction
Persecutors of the holy, bring forth the beast
Cast out thy wicked
Cast out thy sons of darkness
I awake thee!

And so it may be, a time of eternal redemption
Prospering in aeons of blasphemy
Vespers of the purest idolatry
Upon the wicked, we shall rise
As the dead stand upon the throne

He shall now rule, the conqueror
He shall now rule, the cursed god

Persecutors of the holy, bring forth the beast
Cast out thy wicked
Cast out thy sons of darkness
I awake thee!
