"Mother of Abominations" as written by Daniel Lloyd Davey, Paul James Allender, Adrian Paul Erlandsson, Martin F. Powell and David John Pybus....
Mother of abominations
Our Lady Overkill
Smothering the congregation
Grips the cosmic wheel
A lover of acceleration
No mercy or brakes applied
I see dead stars collide
In her cold unflinching power slide

Comets tear the skies
Gushing from a shattered silence
Never so alive

Like the rush of cum on nymphet amines
Minds desensitized
Night chords rung on a ladder of violence
Darkness fantasized
Sleek and polished black

Instrumental in stripping Gods
To neuter and mute their staves
Thereafter
Her laughter
Shalt sound aloft their future graves

[Chorus]
Heavens above
Fear the Gorgon eyes of a new moon rising
Except no love
When she enters your golden halls
Millennial the whore
Riding wide astride the horns of madness
Clarions forth the war
Spilling the wine of her fornication
Perennial the gore
Filling the lines between split nations
Seeping under doors
In time tides force a wider crack

Mother of abominations
Our Lady Overkill
Smothering the congregation
Licks the royal milk

The scourge hangs at her girdle
Death slathers near her heel
Seeking blood to curdle
When the gathered clouds reveal
Her roared abortive labour
Thighs slick with molten steel
Dripping into sabres
For Vulcan spawn to wield

Instrumental in stripping Gods
To neuter and lash her slaves
Thereafter
Her laughter
Shalt sound aloft the crashing waves

[Chorus]

Comets tear the skies
Gushing from a shattered silence
Never so alive
Like the rush of cum on nymphet amines
Minds desensitized
Night chords rung on a ladder of violence
Darkness fantasized
Sleek and polished black

Instrumental in stripping Gods
To neuter and mute their staves
Thereafter
Her laughter
Shalt sound aloft their future graves

[Chorus]

Mother of abominations
Our Lady Overkill
Smothering the congregation
Licks the royal milk

The scourge hangs at her girdle
Death slathers near her heel
Seeking blood to curdle
When the gathered clouds reveal
Her roared abortive labour
Thighs slick with molten steel
Dripping into sabres
For Vulcan spawn to wield

Instrumental in stripping Gods
To neuter and lash her slaves
Thereafter
Her laughter
Shalt sound aloft the crashing waves

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis seems to be about an extremely powerful female deity. There are hints of war being waged against the patriarchy of Christianity, or possibly another major religion (though with Dani, I doubt it). It is confusing, though; sometimes he seems thankful that this figure has gripped "the cosmic wheel", while other times he portrays her as an embodiment of the trend of modern society (shown in an unfavorable light). Not his best, but still better than most other bands can come up with. Sweet song, too.

    General CommentThe dark spirit of the great Cthulhu awakens from centuries of slumber, instigating the inevitable destruction of human existence.

    General CommentIya Iya Cthulu Fetagen could be part of a incantation from the necronomicon, and this song could be about the goddess Inanna who is the goddess of love and of war as written in the necronomicon

    Fantastic song

    "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming."
    - from the call of cthulhu, no clue what Iya is though

    General CommentAs much as Swansong For A Raven counts as a 'sequel' to Her Ghost In The Fog, this could be considered as a follow up to Cthulhu Dawn.

    Also, I don't know, I just feel the need to point out that it's spelt "Ia, Ia, Cthulhu, Fhtagn"

    General CommentMy guess would be that this song refers to Hydra, a character from the Cthulhu mythos... "Mother of Abominations" - Sounds like Hydra to me...

    General CommentIs it 'Ia' or 'Ea'? Maybe the same Ea referred to in the burzum track Ea, Lord of the Depths?

    Ea some sort of water deity? Middle Eastern perhaps? Possibly one of those conglomerates of various mythical creatures that have been filtered through cultures?

    so many questions. so few answers.

    General CommentPsyEythan, what story is Hydra mentioned in because I've read a lot of Lovecraft and never saw it. Anyways I think this is about the coming of the old ones and destruction of the human race, etc.
