The Icon of Fertility Appears majestically before us It rises above all finite, Decaying, crumbling, dying life The Black Goat with a Thousand Young, An avatar of a formless cloud of creation Cosmic matter, exotic energy Self-organizing signatures initiate On one side of mirror-truth Stands the Ram of Masculine Strength Beyond your sight in the ether, The Procreation Principle of Feminine Wrath Her cilia reach into this world And her representative is, to us, A beast of religious persecution, Drawing in those strange enough to be her mates Scattering seeds of alien substance, A force that shapes all that's near Distorted to take on other forms: Properties visible in other dimensions The ram impregnates its offering, And, in so doing, triggers an opposite For the offspring will cross the threshold And be birthed from the misery fog Spawning the spores of malediction

A superimposed image of reality Fades as we exhume the mirage And the beast from the cosmic void Speaks like us, looks like us He demonstrates his power And sours dreams in his wake To challenge him is to bring Devastation upon us all Behold! Hail! We are the insects of the cosmos, On a tiny rock in the ether We are the grains of sand From which this temple is built

Set the scene with a bleeding Exalt the beast that we're feeding It appears from her portal As you feared, now immortal The simple face will cry The monstrous body grinds Through the human hives But your eyes are blind As it grows it will hunger We shall know, announced with thunder Looks like the mother But is the father's son We can't release it Until our work is done The simple face will cry And blood will rise like tide And after you have died The whippoorwills will fly

All severing All withering All suffering Dire misery Wallow in horror Flinching in fear Fathomless sorrow Terrified Drown in fear

The Window 05:21
The house was old, with tangled wings outthrown, Of which no one could ever half keep track, And in a small room somewhat near the back Was an odd window sealed with ancient stone. There, in a dream-plagued childhood, quite alone I used to go, where night reigned vague and black; Parting the cobwebs with a curious lack Of fear, and with a wonder each time grown. One later day I brought the masons there To find what view my dim forbears had shunned, But as they pierced the stone, a rush of air Burst from the alien voids that yawned beyond. They fled—but I peered through and found unrolled All the wild worlds of which my dreams had told.

You cannot run from me Subhuman, vermin, gutter trash Fucking useless mortal waste This is what you deserve! I'm going to hunt you down, Back you into a corner In this dilapidated house, Surrounded by demonic spirits Running as fast as you can Your speed will not avail you Looking you in the eye, Stabbing you in the fucking gut Your pleas don't move me My hatred will not relent Begging for your life Forces me to cut out your tongue

Ia-R'lyehl Cihuiha Flgagnl id Ia! Y'ha-nthlei awaits me Come now to these shores I shall give thee a body, Thou will shape my flesh I shall give thee blood, And thou will transform mine Ia-R'lyehl Cihuiha Flgagnl id Ia! Y'ha-nthlei awaits me In the depths of the sea Take me home Y'ha-nthlei Y'ha-nthlei Of the deeps
