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

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

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

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
