Dunwich

Dunwich child
You know not your father's name
Dope numbs the pain
Ascend dark wooded hills to kane
Your mother's witches
Burnt at the stake for sorcery
You were conceived
Upon the altar, rights obscene

Child of Dunwich rise
You have your father's eyes
Child of Dunwich rise
End the world that you despise

Dunwich child
Of whispered past now they learn
High on the hill
Black clouds gather now they'll burn
Bay at the stars
"Why was I born at all?"
Hear voice of doom
From other worlds your father's call

Child of Dunwich rise
you have your father's eyes
Child of Dunwich rise
End the world that you despise

(guitar solo/interlude)

(solo #2 with screaming in background)

Our time has come
Our time has come
Our time has come
Our time has co-ome
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come
The end has begun
Our time has come

    General CommentJus Osborn is very much influenced by Lovecraft's writings (as well as others) of horror, the occult, etc. One of Electric Wizard's greatest songs thus far. I personaly think this whole album is on par with Dopethrone as masterpieces.

    General CommentIt's about the movie or the story by H. P. Lovecraft... you have to see Dunwich Horror, that movie is pretty bad ass.

    General CommentIf you like to read you can find the full short story online - it only took a few hours to read and it was one of the most finely crafted tales of horror I have ever read.

    General CommentWhat's the meaning of this sentence:
    "Ascend dark wooded hills to kane"?

    Ascend - going up.
    Kane - It's the name of some god.
    Wooded hills - WTF???
