"Goat of Departure" as written by and John Kempainen Brian Eschbach....
Goat of departure on his back rides their shame
Antithesis of their ivory Christian chains
Fearful thee ovis their weakened hearts and minds
We are the satyrs of hedonistic kind

Less travelled is our path
Laid darkly to the left
Footprint of Mendes emblazoning our armored breast
Great bearded Capra who towers oe’er the land
A tribute to your magnificence the feared sign of the horns shows on our hands

Azazel the damned ibex
Swath of scarlet ties his neck
To the desert banished yet
Our curse lives on

Embrace the glory the goat
Worship the one who burns below
Heretic liberation of the soul

Dispel their false salvation as a whole
Misunderstood our lord
Preserver of the horde
Footprint of Mendes enchants our angel cleaving swords
O silvered Capra taught us to fear no man
In your honor we have gathered strength to rid their aging falsehoods from this land

We’ll fight their kingdom high
The burdened scapegoat cast aside
Like he has we shall too survive
Melding our powers undenied

Order of Ebon we are his righteous blade
Reich of satanic rule the iron might of Baphomet
Bringers of chaos we are an antichrist
Swing spiked morning stars to crush his kingdom our delight

Danse ye now unto to the satyrs' lyre
Spring heeled devotion to hell's eternal fires
Instinctively to follow thine desire
We should ashamed not be preservation of the will is key

Embrace the glory the goat
Worship the one who burns below
Heretic liberation of the soul
Dispel their false salvation as a whole

We’ll fight their kingdom high
As the burdened scapegoat cast aside
Like he has we shall too survive
Melding our powers undenied

    General CommentThis is an actual quote from Trevor to Decibel Magazine, where he explained each on the tracks on Everblack.

    This second song is a real blast heavy tune… fast paced and very melodic. In my mind this is a quintessential Brian Eschbach penned BDM song—nice powered wig (read: classically-influenced) riffage and an ultra-catchy chorus to boot. Lyrically, it deals with the origins of the goat as a symbol of evil and how the lamb came to represent the Christian… the goat of departure was cast out into the desert bearing the sins of man on his back… he was the original scapegoat. It talks about the beginning of the ‘horns’ hand sign that we metal heads know and love… the emblem of our very pride and joy.
