"Testimony" as written by and Patrick M.j. Mameli....
["Seeking life-answers by using dark powers"]

The gates to my subconscious, open wide
Hear and remember, the incantations I recite
Reveal the power, no longer known by man
Possess, before the ancients rule the earth once again

Beneath the seas and skies of the human mind
The abyss yawns wide before me
Uncertain what truth of lies I will find
Appear and share my wisdom, for I know thee

Descend into the foul places of death
I fear for my flesh, for I have seen my epitaph
The price I pay on this lonely journey
Is softened and I hope the gods will have mercy

From a time before a time a cold voice has spoken
From a land beyond the stars I evoke thee
In exchange for wisdom, what evil have I woken
What terrible faith shall consume me?

I've seen the future
I've seen the past
I've seen the sight of whom causeth horror
I've seen my place of rest

I've traveled on spheres, I've seen things
Beyond imagination
The things I have learned are the most pure revelation
Obliterated are the lines of my life
My blood cries out as I make my last sacrifice

I cannot see, I cannot move, 'cause sight is failing me
Knowing that the beasts of the spaces claim my blood
My blood turns black but frightened I cannot be
The bargain is sealed, the price to pay is to rot

    General CommentI saw a live video of this song on Youtube. This is a great song and band! The song is about the Necronomicon, the ancient book of demonic spells and incantations which is bound in human skin. You read the spells if you wanna summon some demon from hell, i guess. There is some pro and con to it's authenticity, as horror author HP Lovecraft said it was his invention. ."Lovecraft was often asked about the veracity of the Necronomicon, and always answered that it was completely his invention."

    I am pretty spooked by books like these. Even though HP Lovecraft said it's his invention, I would rather not even read from that book, as Lovecraft was quite a mysterious person. I would never read the spells, or recite the summonings. I'll just live life like it is, come what may. I don't need no demons after my butt! LOL
