ANCIENT II: LILITH'S EMBRACE LYRICS
'Alone in the darkness I can hear
The sweetest voice
Whispering words of surcease
And I rejoiced!
Who would dare speak to one so
Condemned as I?
Do you know of my most wicked crime?'
'I'm known as Lilith, your father's first bride
Like you I'm cursed to dwell in the shadows of night.'
'How can one survive here in the dark groves forlorn?
Without a sole companion of a friend of some form?'
'But there are many companions in my infinite kingdom.
Through magick and sorcery I've found my freedom.'
'I was cold and she clothed me, I starved
And she fed me, I was mournful yet she loved me.
I shed bloody tears and she made them disappear
She kissed away my tears
Her powers I could see would forever set me free
I begged her to awake me
Her blood, sweet as wine, as I drank she would sigh
Then I closed my eyes
Into the dark I fell and fell
A deepest abyss
Surrounded by obscurity
A price for her gift
Out from the frigid blackness
Came a radiant glimmering light
Revealing the flaming archangel
Known as Michael'
'Cursed son of Adam
Indeed his mercy is great
Bow thy head and repent thine sins now
Before it's too late.'
'Not by his grace but my own,
I choose to live with pride
Your 'merciful' god disgusts me
His kingdom infested with lies.'
'You sad irrelevant fool
Have thy no shame?
You shall forever fear the light
Of the living flame.'
'On the morning by silver wing
Raphael came to me and said
Abel did forgive me
Not by his (forgiveness) but mine own
For darkness is my home
I walk alone
My skin would burn by the sun's rays I learned
And the dawn had returned to earth below
I did run seeking shelter from the sun
The endless night of Caine had begun
When I awoke, Uriel appeared
The reaper with black wings
But thrice denied his grace
Hence, my blood-curse begins...'
