about

A Ruler of Men who would be Master of Gods, Aspect of Majesty

lyrics

You will bow before me
You will bow
Gaze on my awful glory
You will bow
There is no god before me
You will bow
Even this Star of Morning
You will bow

I am the Sun!
Blinded by these rays
You will become.
Fear and love;
Worshipped for all days
Until undone.

There is no truth
But my word.
You have no life
But [that] I will [it].

We’re playing for keeps
And imma take it all
Undertaker preying on priests
Nah, they don’t pray at all
Soothsayers and smooth talkers and perjurers
Every sound that comes from their mouth
Is a worthless word
Seduction and reduction
Of the sacred to sin
Perversion and inversion
Of your means to my ends
In a minute everything you claimed
Is gonna be mine
Thine whole and holy house,
Man, woman, and child

A bloody altar adorned
By those you claim to adore
No future in this land
Devoured by your children
No rest, no respite given
Forever graveward driven
May they all cry the same
“I piss upon your name”

You will bow before me
You will bow
Gaze on my awful glory
You will bow
There is no god before me
You will bow
Even this star of morning
You will bow

There is no truth
But my word
You have no life
But I will
There is no truth
But my word
You have no life
But I will

I am the Sun!
Blinded by these rays
You will become.
Fear and love;
Worshipped for all days
Until undone.

Undone!

Everything I taste is turned to blood
This madness leaps inside me
An itch like none before

The beasts are hunting me
My own are dead
The ashes of his fury
Burn into my skin
The skies rain ice and fire
These sorrows swarm
There is a darkness in my
Eyes and in my bones
All my future is forfeit
My bloodline broken

I am the Sun,
Blinded by these rays.
You will become
Fear and love
Worshipped for all days.

I am the Sun,
Blinded by these rays!
Fear and love
Undone!
