Solstice winds at twilight
Moaning, prophetic fear
A rising tide brings terror
Birthrise of the graven image

Fetid the night air
The stillbirth was not...
In the graveyard of faith
Hell-born cloven hoof made flesh

I have seen the signs
Famine, fire and plague

Unborned as of yet
But it still (it) commands
The final conquest of peace
And lightning prays...

Mortals terror has now spread
Crest riding the wings of war
Hopelessness rapes in it's wake
Birthrise of the graven image

I have seen the signs
Fire, famine and plague

Unbroken ground in the boneyard
Lightning purifies in strike
Fire consecrates the rest
Birthrise of the graven image

Black clouds bury the dead sun
(as the) Moon takes it's rightful place
Dawn and morning are nevermore
Earth bows to it's new master

I have seen the signs
These new horns need no crown

Birthrise
