Hour Of 13 - The Ritualist

Artist: Hour Of 13
Release: The Ritualist


1. The Gathering

Witches gather, devil’s reign
Binding fasten, sacred flame
Under spell, curse or hexing
Power wisdom and protecting
Flicker fire as black candles burn
Ceremonial cauldron, counterclockwise they churn

Ritual dancing, waxing moon
Amulet of ancient rune
Wave wand of stick and stone
Pagan altar, dagger, bone

Witches gather, devil’s reign
Binding fasten, sacred flame
Under spell, curse or hexing
Power wisdom and protecting
Flicker fire as black candles burn
Ceremonial cauldron, counterclockwise they churn

2. The Ritualist

Driven by sinister provocation
Hidden in places they never knew
Psychological manipulation
Given them power over you
Luring you in with the lies
Part of an evil plan which they’ve divised

Once you’re in then they take hold
Strip away your mortal soul
Seeking spiritual gratification
Or just a victim to be used
Now found yourself in a situation
Ritualistically abused
Luring you in with the lies
Part of an evil plan which they’ve divised

Once you’re in then they take hold
Strip away your mortal soul
Your mortal soul
Your mortal soul
Your mortal soul
Your mortal soul
As psychopathic as it so then seems
Serves them well their own deluded means

3. Naked Star

I remember as if just yesterday
It even now haunts me still this way
When I was young I was taken by air
To the dark tunnels buried there

The others not know as it’s time for sleep
The elders threaten that this secret keep
I know that now for sure that witches fly
I’ve seen with my own eyes
I’ve seen with my own eyes
I’ve seen with my own eyes

Never wanted be a naked star
To the day carry the minute scar
And in the end this is by far worse
That I with now still the McMartin curse
I still with now have the McMartin curse

Soaked in blood with burned and blistered skin
They let the rape and sodomy begin
Soaked in blood with burned and blistered skin
They let the rape and sodomy begin

To my discomfort they shed their clothes
Before a child’s eye they then drop their robes
They in their acts of vile beastly love
Blasphemes to God above
Blasphemes to God above
Blasphemes to God above

4. Demons All Around Me

Haunted by the hours that make up the dark of night
Fearful of its power and what hides out from the light
I know they’re out there somewhere just waiting for the chance
I see them in the shadows as I pass with every glance

Demons all around me, and if only that I knew
Demons all around me, and there’s nothing I can do

Seeking out the sinful, they the easy to possess
Once they start to channel, it’s too late that I be blessed
No priest can save me, no God can help me now
I’ve become familiar only to the devil will I bow

Demons all around me, and if only that I knew
Demons all around me, and there’s nothing I can do

Somehow I’ve changed
I’m just not the same
They say I’m deranged
Have I gone insane?

Unknown source hidden knowing
Speak in tongues never heard
Inside me feel it growing
Serving its every word

Vengeful the spirits now inside
All that was left of me has died
No way the beast it will expel
Now I’m forever damned to Hell
It still torments me ’til this day
Never will this evil go away
Woe is me for now all time
I should have seen all the signs

5. Possession

Left all alone now she’s forsaken
Thought to be lost yet they mistaken
I, the possessed, she my possession
Now to succumb to my obsession
They keep on searching though that they will never find
Time that they now accept the missing girl is mine

With spell in place for my protection
Voices in my head guide my direction
A virgin’s blood spilled for the power
Grants me this gift on the 13th hour
Still beating heart removed and held to open flame
Inhale its resins three times when spelling out his name

6. Soldiers Of Satan

Black cat killed for crucifixion
Hung to bleed until it’s dried
Writings in its excrement
And melted candles all that’s left behind

Soldier of Satan, the music speaks to me
Can’t define the truth from the fantasy
Minion in the making, or so it seems to be
Am I losing touch with reality

All the songs I listen to
All the things you say I do
Just like a God I worship you
All the songs I listen to
All the things you say I do
Just like the Devil I worship you

Headstones turned grave desecration
Pentagrams painted in its holy halls
Chapel looted, baptised by urine
Defecation smears its sacred walls

Black cat killed for crucifixion
Hung to bleed until it’s dried
Writings in its excrement and
Melted candles all that’s left behind

7. Evil Inside

I feel an evil inside me
My demons will not let me be
I hear their voices in my head
It’s time their hunger now be fed

I’m lurking in the shadows searching for some prey
Lingering the city’s suburbs to take your loved ones away
I’ve got an urge it seems one that I can’t control
To take one’s life away, another virgin soul

Blood on my hands brings ecstasy
I blame the devil inside me
I cum with their last gasp for breath
I am one aroused only by their death

I’m lurking in the shadows searching for some prey
Lingering the city’s suburbs to take your loved ones away
I’ve got an urge it seems, one that I can’t control
To take one’s life away, another virgin soul

Losing sanity, something evil possesses me
Whether once the man embrace the monster now that I am
Underneath the guise, no one knows the secrets that I hide
A stranger maybe not again, I’m the last one that you would have thought

8. The Crawlspace

It’s too bad you’ll never live to tell
Of your last days, a living hell
Bound and gagged, soon in a shallow grave
Now you’ll be my slave
In the crawlspace you’re kept confined
Keep you captive now you’re mine
Now you’re here, no one will ever know
Never let you go

Cut and burned, like to watch you bleed
Just to see your pain is all I need
A little taste to take and quench my thirst
Now you too are cursed
In the crawlspace you’re kept confined
Keep you captive, now you’re mine
Now you’re here, no one will ever know
Never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go

First I beat you into submission
Breaking your will by back of hand
Once you’re in a weakened condition
Allows me now to take command
Lay you down into position
You can no longer put up a fight
Have my way now with volition
And when I’m done I take your life
