Nocturnus - The Key

Artist: Nocturnus
Release: The Key


1. Lake Of Fire

Bones crushing
Skulls smashing
In the vice of hell
Demons shoving
Tortured souls
In the lake of fire

Lake of fire
Lake of fire
Lake of fire

Spirits forming
Ever swirling
In the abyss of hell
Souls screaming for their lives
In the lake of Fire

Lake of fire
Lake of fire
Lake of fire

Demons swarming
Corpses smashing
Through the gates of hell
Satan flying from his throne
Towards the gates of Heaven

2. Standing In Blood

Now heaven is destroyed by Satan
He will rule the promised land
Now your soul will be freed
Through the gate
Find the key to hell
Cross the river known as Styx
Charon awaits in his boat

Now your soul will be freed
Through the gate
Find the seven keys to hell
Cross the river known as Styx
Kneel before Lucifer’s throne

Jesus wept
Standing in blood
Praying to die
Standing in blood

Jesus wept
Standing in blood
Praying to die
Standing in blood

3. Visions From Beyond The Grave

Visions from beyond the grave

Communicate with the dead, after life
Communicate with the dead, after death
Asking questions through my crystal ball
Now we’ll see what lies from beyond

The dead will arise
When I invoke

Communicate with the dead, after life
Communicate with the dead, after death
Asking questions through my crystal ball
Now we’ll see what lies from beyond

The dead will arise when I invoke them through my crystal ball

Follow me so you can see visions from the grave
Now become nocturnal slaves
Follow me so you can see visions from the grave
Now become nocturnal slaves

Visions from beyond the grave

4. Neolithic

Years of development
Destroyed in days
Beings, the genocide
A great fire
Has affected the earth, moon and seas

As the earth began to tilt
All polar caps had started to melt
Then the seas began to over flow
Ripping the continents apart

Neolithic
Neolithic

As the sky began to turn dark
And the sun faded away
All the climates had begun to drop
And the ground started to freeze

As the land began to freeze
All the animals were trapped inside
Some animals had moved to the sea
Creating a new form of life

Stranded on the river’s shore
Fossilised in time

As continents ripped apart
Land forms moved to the sea
As continents ripped apart
Land forms moved to the sea
As continents ripped apart
Land forms moved to the sea

Rising, soaring, devastating, annihilation

5. Undead Journey

My will to walk the earth again
To come forth from my grave
Satan gives me the power to rise again
On my undead journey

As I awaken in my grave
And wipe the maggots from my face
Then open my encrusted eyes
To see the world a second time

Clawing through the casket lid
As I pull up through the ground

My first victim I will find
A young girl on which to dine

My rotted teeth rip into her pure white skin
Now warm blood fills my cold veins
Flesh is what I seek, brains for me to eat
The feeling I get rejuvenates my soul
Come with me on my undead journey
Walk the earth for evermore

Undead!

6. BC-AD

Before Christ no one cared
Evil was in everyone’s heart
Sins were committed every day of your life
There was no wrong from right

Then he came to change it all
He really thought he could do some good
The son of God sent to this Earth
But the Romans showed him what he was worth

Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again

Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again

At the last supper he was betrayed
By a friend he thought he had made
Maybe he didn’t know it all
Like he claimed he did

Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again

Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again

Hanging on the cross
With a crown of thorns
The Romans just laughed
”Who is this son of God?”

He died like everyone else
He didn’t change a thing
Because today
Evil rules once again

Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again
Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again
Before Christ, I ruled the land
After Death, I will rule once again
After Death, there is no more
After Death, there is no more
Jesus Christ, he is no more

7. Andromeda Strain

Modern warfare of today
Brings forth a new technology
Killing through scientific means
Destroy the world with technology
Now we’ll see what is to be
Inescapability

Cloud masses concentrate
Osmosis fills the sky

Scattered remains, bodies left to decay
On this disease stricken earth, plague of andromeda strain

Affected by the gas
Reduce them to subhuman form

As I glimpse at swelled up corpses
Infested with radiated insects

Global chaos, mass confusion
The conclusion of a dying world

Mankind death is close at hand
The world is hanging by a strand
The key to an oblitered land
No one seems to understand

8. Droid Sector

Enter the droids!

Cybernetic crafts approaching
Through skies lit with fusion discharge
Androids from the gamma quadrant
Moving at the speed of death

Now the human race is so vulnerable
Invasion set for attack
Enter the droids

Command, mission, destroy, planet
Three from their sun

Caught within my tractor beam
Bringing the craft to me
Disable the robot for my own use
To aid my escape
Fleets of ships are now arriving, overtaking
Physical evasion is my only demise
Left to me for my survival

Gaining data from their system, overriding
To complete my invention, the time machine
Only question is, will it function?

9. Destroying The Manger

Mastering the forces of teleportation
Gaining the secrets to travel through time
Approaching the vortex, chronometer reading 0 B.C.

What was the past will soon be changed
My first priority, to destroy the manger
Crushing with the myths of paradox

Merging with the past
Shockwaves rip the continuum
How long can one last, travelling at millennium?

Following the North Star shining abright
To a place of the holy birth site
Craving my need to kill the one
Born of the name Nazarene Son

Destroy The Manger
Die by the sign of the key!
Die by the sign of the key!

Destroy The Manger
Die by the sign of the key!
Die by the sign of the key!

Destroy The Manger
Die by the sign of the key!
Die by the sign of the key!

Destroy The Manger
Die by the sign of the key!
Die by the sign of the key!

Now that I have you in my sights, Nazarene child
Pulling the trigger with no reconcile
Blasting away father, mother and child
Laughing hysterically all of the while

For centuries I have awaited this confrontation
In time I will bring them all down
Your saviour has now fallen
My reign of evil has only just begun

10. Empire Of The Sands

Fortress of steel I have acquired
Behold, behold the chosen one born of fire
Victorious, death has won, rule of crueity
Vicious experiments, creating synthetic slave
Computer hypnosis, cerebral override

Inventing new weaponry
Building defence systems
Force fields in operation
Erecting radar dishes

Empire of the sands
Empire of the sands

Mapping global surface regions
Graphing seismic active areas
Establishing aerial viewpoints
Charting several outpost stations

Empire of the sands
Empire of the sands

Testing elements in the ozone
Mining useful mineral layers
Drilling deep into the core
Seeking power from the earth

Building metal walls of armour
Forging massive iron thresholds
Circuits surrounds inner cavities
Vector brain controlling all

Computer summons ancient evil
Forces beyond recognition
Evoking gods of Sumerian origin
Deeply buried in the sands

Obeying the matrix
The tyrant commands
Submissive controller
Armies of the empire
