"Grotesquery Conceiled (Within Measureless Magic)" as written by and Stian Tomt Thoresen....
In the shadows of my gallow
I'd rather absent the hallow

For thy presence made pleasure of pain
And thy madness turned sanity into vain
Profoundly wicked owner of souls
The mysteries of thy creation beheld by ghouls

Diabolically disguised heavenly bodies
And it's atrociously desired primordial elements
Plunging through the confused heart of sulphur
In all this darkness, how can a man see?

Pour misguided fool it's not God you are talking to
I am not impostorous, hiding behind pearly walls
However, I am still yet to be found, known
I shall guide you on your midnights rides as the sun fades black

And beyond your grotesque imagination
My name will be revealed
The blood of Christ can't heal your wounds
Give me all of yours and I'll give you mine

I am the hidden fantasy
In the secrets of my knowledge
There is no God but me

In this shadowy world all are nameless
Outstanding, dressed in majestic splendor
Touched by the flames of eternal fire
How I long for your embrace, uttermost desire

    General CommentQuite good song. It's about some guy who is into black magic and probably sold his soul to devil, if I understand correctly he is waiting to be hanged by inquisition hence the lines: "In the shadows of my gallow I'd rather absent the hallow" but he doesn't mind and looks forward to this for he's comming to his master.
    I hope this makes sense to someone since english is not my mother tongue.

    General CommentYes, this song could be about that, otherwise it could be "
    some kind of LaVeyan thing.

    "Pour misguided fool ...
    It is not god you are talking to
    I am not impostrous, hiding behind perly walls
    However, i am still yet to be found, known"

    It's like there is a guy who is christian but he can't see that there is no God, and he didn't find the God inside himself/herself yet.
    "There is no god but me"

    It could also be about the devil, but I rather think that this is some kind of LaVeyan thing, since Dimmu has reaaally many lyrics which sound very LaVeyan or something in that direction.
