Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam!
Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam!

We invoke thee, Black Dragon of Chaos
We evoke thee, O mighty dragon force
Awaken now from your aeonic slumber -- rise up from the abyss
Dragon of forgotten lore - let your Chaos rule forever more
Lotan - Raise your seven heads and let the ancient ones rule again

Apep - Dragon of devouring darkness, supreme ruler of emptiness
Open up your black diamond eyes and rejoice as Ra's creation dies

Jormungand - Lord of the poisonous sea, fulfill the twilight prophecy
Unleash your hatred upon all life and kill this world in the final strife
Tiamat - Queen of the formless deep - The Eleventh seal is now broken
Hark to your children's invocations and awaken from your dreadful sleep

Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam!
Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam!

Leviathan - Tortuous one, by your Wrathful Chaos our war will be won
Bring forth your darkness, grant us your grace and enlighten us in your wicked ways
Typhon - Lord of dark desires, purify us with your smokeless fires
Make us at one with thyself and walk the earth once again

Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam!
Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam!

    It's an invocation. And a truly Satanic song. Jon combines his Anti-Cosmic principles with his respect for the dark gods of ancient cultures. Leviathan, Apep, Jormungand, Tiamat, Typhon. They're all connected to his religious beliefs.

    General CommentI'm probably one of the few Christians who think Dissection is amazing, especially their lyrics. :)

    General Comment@frottage: I am a Christian (not just by name), too, and I like their music. And their lyrics, well...sometimes I do, sometimes I don't

    General CommentFrottage and babba 777, it is surprising to know that other Christians can appreciate Jon Nödtveidt's unique music. Despite our opposing beliefs, how could we not be drawn to such spiritual devotion and dedication? Jon channeled much more than simple emotion in to his music, and I think the spiritually sensitive can appreciate that.
