(Verse 1)
Solar zenith long surpassed…
The waning light in lunar path…
Leads the westward lagging edge…
In a crimson hue

While the few belabor still
The greater mass their bliss reveals
Credulous, indolent flesh
Dulled by time

(Chorus)
Shadows under guise of a passing day
Shadows of loathsome time and odious place
Shadows in the “Stygian caves forlorn”
Shadows of an ancient night

(Verse 2)
Analemma in contempt
The one and seven nine descent
Where light begins its wayward course
Felt by those below

For in the stead of absent rays
The scintillating, cerulean haze
Accents the ambient gelidity
Spread from northern plains

(Chorus)
Shadows under guise of a passing day
Shadows of loathsome time and odious place
Shadows in the “Stygian caves forlorn”
Shadows of an ancient night

(Rasta-blast)
The fluid spread of tenebrous mist
As blanket to the fertile fringe

(Swedish shuffle1)
Freed from the confines, the elliptical-avail, the beginning of aphelion the force that none may quell.
The turning of a world, the balance was destroyed, a caliginous return to the primal void.
The upper plain…long denied by light, the former claims…of what was once by might!
Resurgence, an out flow from wells long thought dry... oozing into night!

(Groove riff1)
“Deeper, deeper, deeper, down I lie”
From the calcite depths unknown slowly I arise

(Swedish shuffle2)
The tyranny of persecution, the curse of broken oaths, the condemning of interment…where others would lose hope
Tenacious, the lust left to fester on, (in) the Cimmerian recursive dreams of those below the dawn
Banished by the sulphorous gaze, no longer holding sway, as final rays expire so in legion they awake.
From the deepest sumps to cesspools far below they arrive as innumerable shades over all

(Groove riff2)
Locked below the stagnant earth the stale air permeates
Through fallen stone and earth the amalgam makes its way

(Stoner Rock1)
Another fool dispatched
Another’s end for sport
Iniquity’s return in crepuscular glory!

(Enslaved riff)
Shadows under guise of passing day
Shadows of loathsome time and odious place
Shadows in the “Stygian caves forlorn”
Shadows of the ancient night!

(Stoner Rock2)
Another fool dispatched
Another’s end for sport
Iniquity’s return in crepuscular glory!
