Sacred night on the Eve of May
We gather before the stars
Taste the Hunger of the Fire
Vastness of the Continuum
Heretics of a way unseen
Celebrate, the Greatest of Means
Beelzebub, Lord of the Flies
By your Hand the Zamanu dies

Drink, drink, the Blood of the Ancients
Me-Zu Me Pa-Ku-Ku-De-Hul
(Your Divine Ordering Principle is a Divine Order which manifests
Itself with Most Sweetness)

Star encircled with the Power-Names
We speak in the Broken Lines
Leviathan will open the Gate
To the Great Abyssous Planes
Feel the icing winds of the Ab-Zu
Sea below all seas
Leviathan, Serpent of Truth
Share with us Most Perfect Way

Call to the Earth, fortify our will
Come Air Spirits, be our eyes this night
Primal Flames are warmth to our souls
Waters of Life, Great Blessings You pour

Calling on Leviathan
Open the gate
Link us with the Wonder of the Abyss Planes so great
Lord of the rolling thunder
Celebrate with us this night
Rip away the veil
Hear our praise

Your Slumber is our Paradise
You smite our enemies down
For we, the few enlightened
Through Your Will we break our bonds
Lord Who shatters paradigms
From the rubble the New shall rise
Your Way presents death for them
The Me-Gal-Gal we do praise

Come Centaur
Those Who Prance to the Hymns of Truth
Come join us
Come Leviathan
Make passage of the Entrance we've
Prepared for You this night

Bil-At Kir-Zal Za-A-Kam Ki-Aga-Du
Kas-Du Da-Ra-Es Mu Ga Im-Mi-In
Nin-Ana-Si-Anna Ga Sa-Ga-Ar
Za-A-Kam Ne-Su-Ub-Du Ne-En-Mu Ga Sa-Ga-Ar

Translation:
Lady of Splendour, It is Thine Loving Embrace,
Sweet Nectar for which I forever thirst
Heavenly Lady, I hunger.
It is Thine Kiss of Divinity for which I hunger.

    General CommentQuiff...I've seen you commenting on alot of these Morbid Angel songs and I think to myself...Do you have a brain at all? You're obviously not a musician, and if you are, you are a damn shitty one. Take your Killswitch EMO BULLSHIT back to your mommy's fucking house and go cry about your fat ass g/f that left you cuz you're a cunt. Fuck you. You don't know good music. This song is clearly about calling forth ancient gods for guidance. Think you prick.

    My InterpretationI am not sure but this song seems to be a praise to Satan and all aspects of him. ANd you guys just shut up about your insults, it is just stupid.

    General CommentI don't think this song has anything to do with Satan, it's just Trey's own part in the Cthulhuian universe, or the "Ancient Ones". After David Vincent left, they started writing more material centered on that.
