Daylight breaks hard on sacred ground
For centuries we've questioned them of His birth
But in this hour, on this day, The Elder knew
Years of madness must now subdue
Order must be enforced to hide the truth
Cause on this day, in this hour it's coming true

Child of the wicked and ancient man
Baptized in black magic, their master plan
Born of the Watch, his prophecy, by their command
Conceived of the Beast and in stars above
We`ll shape and guide him with undying love
Born of the Watch, through sands of time, by their command

(Chorus)
So, behold the birth, the wicked child
Born of the Beast, in eastern sands
He will arise, He will divide
He has the power to bring the end

It's up to us now to seal his fate
Marked with the proper math the child's none to late
Blessed by the Beast, our Chosen One was born this day
He'll rise from the ashes of our dying race
Manipulate history, time and space
The Elder, Men of the Watch, professed this day

So, behold the birth, the wicked child
Born of the Beast, in eastern sands
He will arise, He will divide
He has the power to bring the end
Behold the birth, the wicked child
Born of the Beast, in eastern sands
He will arise, He will divide
He has the power to bring the end

    General CommentThe second part of the "Something Wicked Trilogy."
    Based on the character Set Abominae, which Jon Schaffer created, tells how he finally rises to destroy mankind as the prophecy stated.

    General CommentThe caracter he created is based on set. A god in Egypitian Myothology named Set, Which is the god of Evil. That's why it says "Born of the beast.. In Eastern Sands.."

    General CommentThe trilogy off Something Wicked, along with Overture of the Wicked, Framing Armageddon, I Walk Among You, and The Crucible of Man are all part of the same story.

    This trilogy provides the backstory for the albums that follow.

    "Set Abominae [the mascot] is a fictional character featured in the works of American heavy metal guitarist Jon Schaffer from the band Iced Earth, and is the main character of the Something Wicked Saga.

    Set Abominae is an Anti-Christ-like figure, spoken of in the Prophecy. He is the savior of the Setian race set to bring about the end of mankind, who in ancient times came from another galaxy and conquered Earth. Events parallel to those in the Bible (similarly the Tower of Babel) occurred, in an event called The Clouding which erased the memories of all humans on the planet Earth. "
