Spawned in blackout spell, bewildered at the gates of Hell
Eternal night, skeleton branches drain the light
Walk this ground of fear, in your mind the path is clear
Classical display of a fiendish realm fractures the dream
All vision fades, irises blanch a milky-dead
Immortal fate, prance around zombified state
Vice the daemons in, fissure under tremored limbs
Dig within the void, no trace of your traded soul
Raise the iron to open the gate, rip the red sky with your blade
Claim victory as the armies take form, rising with you above pain
Step after step, knee deep in liquid death; ignore bleeding wounds and broken bones
Collapsing skies open to a new world, steering yourself in the swirl

Hundred souls under your command, share your fatality
Pulled by the force of the cataract ahead, plunged into infinite flames
Blaze of the abyss drags your remains, coating an armor of faith
World speeds in black under words of decay, everything forms the nothing once it's gone
Gather all the parts of your scattered self, puzzle up the pieces of your head
Rolling wave of sinful absurdity flies about the limbs of logic lost

Wrecked upon a solipsistic mental reef, illusions hardened Eden's garden
Twisting fate of fallen sunken empty ship, illness is the nest in which they rest

Euclidean ruins carried in the wind, frenzied destinations strobe
Referential fades in the distance, precious North Star singularize
Wiped out; memorize; intersperse, navigate apart infinitely
Reckon by yourself the Equation, no truth is revealed across the Styx

Don the Helm of Hell, face the dread of never was
Take the Helm of Hell, steer straight and unbecome
