Track Name: Nokken
Cold and darkness always surrounds me
Crushing weight to bear, nothing to see
Vibrations sometimes disturb my sleep
Telling me that it is time to feed

Ravening - I must sate
Or my pain will not abate
To fill the void deep inside
I must emerge into the light

Something moves in my vicinity
This means it has become my prey
I turn and swoop towards its wave
Nothing down here can stand in my way

Ravening I must sate
Or my pain will not abate
To fill the void deep inside
I must emerge into the light

Small fish and newts are all I find
Poor sustenance for a creature of my appetite
Sometimes my hunger grows too ripe
And it is time once more to unveil my long hooded eyes

Ravening I must sate
Or my pain will not abate
To fill the void deep inside
I must emerge into the light

I emerge from fetid depths
My fortunes to seek
I must find a suitable creature
Not too sickly or meak
My hunger must be sated
It burns in the pit
Of my stomach I can
No longer bear it

Eyes adjusting to the light
I search for worthy prey
It seems I am in luck this time
For humans come my way
Not just one, but many
In shells all glittering bright
Many men with fiery torches
Make day from depths of night

Their shining shells as nothing
I reach the meat inside
Their pathetic silver stings
Shattered on my ancient hide
I feast until I'm fit to burst
And gather what remains
Preserved within my frigid home
Sustaining me for many days
Track Name: Nightmares Of The Monolith
Sailing 'cross the seas
Has always been my life
International trade
No family nor wife
Yet now I cannot bare
The water in my sight
For memory of the horror
I saw that darkest night

Monolith raised in stone
Ancient markings carved upon
Depicting horrors best unknown
Children of the ancient one

What is this place
This putrid shore
Despite my mounting horror
I feel compelled to find out more

Monolith raised in stone
Ancient markings carved upon
Depicting horrors best unknown
Children of the ancient one

My trek draws on for hours
Towards the island's peak
With horror I finally behold
That I so fervently seek

Lost since ancient times
Depicting things long dead
Unspeakable aquatic terrors
Ever since then they fill my head

And then, worst horror of all,
Emerging from the sea
Grotesque and twisted, yet human in form,
Turned its eye upon me
I turned and fled with all haste
Mayhap I’d die at sea
Better that than suffer the
Abomination to be near me
Track Name: Door Sniffer
High amongst the mountains
Near to the highest peak
You will find a welcoming cave
Shelter when you're weak
Many make this mistake
Always it means their end
Taking shelter in my lair means
I will make a meal of them

I roam free among the mountains
Lord of all I see
Native creatures all my prey
None here can best me

Sometimes strangers dare to tread here
They do not know they should fear me
Seeking treasures in the fortresses I've ruined
And upon them I will feed

My hunger is eternal
No matter how much I eat I want more
The strong, the weak, all should fear me
All nearby should fear my maw

I will eat them all
Crushed between my jaws
Ground into a paste
Salty, vital taste

And when my feast is done
Home I will return
Await my next victim
Sleeping deep within
Track Name: Metamorphic Possession
Trapped alone, in stygian dark,
Nobody to help me
My former companions, all dead
Their battered corpses all I can see
My bones are shattered, skin is cut
All I can do is bleed
And wait for sweet oblivion
To embrace me

Fading fast
I hear a voice
Calling out tome
In tones divine,
It offers salvation
A chance to set me free

All I must do is accept its light
Into my heart and soul
It would perform miracles
To free me from this wretched hole

No other choice, I accede
What have I left to lose?
Had I known what awaited me
Would I have made that foolish move?

Filled with power and inner strength
I burst through the rocks above
Glorious sunshine beating down
Surely a token of its love

I spy a pool, and stoop to drink
Much to my surprise
My reflection is not my own
I stare into a daemon’s eyes

So my saviour, presumed divine,
Is truly infernal
My aspect changed, so have my needs
Now they are base and bestial

I feast on flesh of innocents
Replacing wine with blood
Filled with an all consuming hatred
Forgotten, thoughts of divine love

Once I was free, now enslaved
Haunting dark corners of this world
Corrupting those of weakened will
Reaping their souls for my dark lord
The trap was baited, set and sprung
I no longer have a choice
Imprisoned within my own flesh
My torment knows no voice
