Close your eyes and gaze into this realm that I reveal. See where eternities are born. Close your eyes, behold the powers of the broken seal. See the liars bound in thorns.
Fear, and you shall fall. Weakness suffocates your will. Dare, yet never fail. Wisdom guides the one. The strong who can defy, Death
So I speak, though, am I heard...? Wasting visions on a world of blinded fools.
Still I scorn. The vacant contradiction of life. If only to bewilder. The final truth shall speak my name.
Thus spake the nightspirit.
Nightspirit, spirit, Embrace my soul

    General CommentDedicating yourself to the inevitable darkness during and after life, and cursing those who hypocritically dismiss the darkness, the nightspirit tells you to embrace night (4th line) without fear, but with wisdom and strength.

    General Comment'broken seal' refers to the breaking of the seven seals in the book of revelations, signifying the apocalypse. 'Liars bound in thorns' refers to Jesus, who was crowned in thorns, and by extension christianity. I also think the title is a reference to the philosophical work of Nietzsche, especially 'Thus Spoke Zarathrustra', which is concerned amongst other things with free will, and the will to power, which is similar to the doctrines of satanists.
