The faltering flame, it wanes before my eyes
As darkness finally conquers Lady Bastet’s holy shrine
A grey day overhead, as her death is mourned
This betrayal of the Gods whom took away her refined form
Will raise the wrath of slaves taken in by her dark charms
Wresting twixt the fabrics which kept her men from taking to arms
A holy war now beckons like a plague upon the Nile
With deathlike crooked fingers pointing scythes unto the sky…

…Unto the sky

Goddess of the flame, no more flickers fervent eyes
The lady of the East no longer with the Sun shall rise
Our perfumed protector fallen to protect her kin
Shall see her legend carried on a war of deicidal sin
In her name and against her will the powers shall be slain
For glory and for Egypt…
And to ease the pain…

…To ease the pain

    General Commentthis is the backwards lyrics at the end of the song from the official forum written by Kazraine:

    "How well she knows to cast the noose,
    And yet not pay the cattle tax!
    She casts the noose on me with her hair,
    She captures me with her eye;
    She curbs me with her necklace,
    She brands me with her seal ring.

    - Third Stanza, from The Nakht-Sobak Cycle of Papyrus Chester Beatty I

    I believe it was based on this, I changed the lyrics however!

    It was something like:

    "She casts the noose on me
    With her flowing hair,
    She captures me
    With her emerald stare;
    She curbs me with her necklace,
    She brands me with her seal ring."

    Or something along those lines at least!"
