01. The Silver Gate

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Awake, angels of lunacy
Arise, avatars of chaos
Incinerate yourselves
In the blaze of Babalon
Ierophants of the Hurricane
We invoke the Eidolon

Unleashed the storm

We renounce the sin
Of mortal fallacy
Bestow upon us
Our stellar legacy

Peel the benighted sheels
From our radiant cores
We obey the laws
Of finitude no more

Ascend
In Akasha to procreate
Strip the flesh from your soul
Extend
Open the Silver Gate
Melt yourself beyond all
Control

Give birth to the vision
Let enter the voice and
Dare not falter
Lets the demons eat you
Gonfide in your Nuit
Never your senses

Nine apparations
The nails of Yod
Drip from the moon
As unhallowed blood
Anubis' terror to feed you
As the night condenses

Ascend
In Akasha to procreate
Strip the flesh from your soul
Extend
Open the Silver Gate
Melt yourself beyond all
Control

In poisoned aberration
Tarnished minions abire
Convocating execrations
To drown and smother, to divide

Recline
Rejoice
Discard the body
And saviour this your threnody
Divine by last alone,
And second skin
As the eyes turn to stone
Let the heave begin!

Azazel!
Shemhazu!
Rejoin your kin in faith and wait!

Heed not the warnings
We invoke the manyfold
Ny-Ar-Rut-Hotep
For we know
There in no peace at the gate
There in no peace at the gate

Ascend
In Akasha to procreate
Strip the flesh from your soul
Extend
Open the Silver Gate
Melt yourselt beyound
All control
In Akasha to procreate
Disembodied, unfettered souls
Open the Silver Gate
We embrace the stars with
Twin black holes.


02. Cohorror

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Petrified
In sleep paralysis
Swallowed by
Nigtmare cataclysms

Cohorror builds its temple in me
Erecting hydric elevation
Under my cafaleptic skin

(...dreaming and dead, still howling deflance...)

Even in this gruesome revelation
The bottom drops from abyssal unreallity

Wrenching revulsion
Cracks my skull, kills me again
I know this epiphany
Wearing my own face
Who are you

Cohorror has laid its eggs in me
Parasitic larvae from beyound existence
Raven the remnants of my decaying humanity

This gnostic burst repels
All life to unbeing, the essence of death
Transmogrifies all
To the pitiless laughter of the birthless

How resilient
Not to choose to life
Rather be
Consumed by us

You have a name
Long forgotten by men and their gods
Eat my soul
If you will, but impart yourself

In your worlds
We cannot be known
There's no Here
For us to ever be

If you desire so
To blindly see
Seek the path
That leads through the Eidolon

Bedevilled
Into unearthly perplexity
Frozen in horror
My countenance stares back at me.


03. Baphomet

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Born from shade
And undead desire
In the glade
A secret fire

Hidden from
Time and sin
Ardent gods
Stir again

Surge, Baphomet
Graint me Anathema
Purge me, Bephomet
From worlds in denial

Through demise
And desecration
In disguise
Dwells the lord of ecstasy

Defies the lie
Of divine castration
Claims his prize
The awoken few's apostasy

Intoxicate me with ambrosia
Thawed on mother nature's
Legs of lust

Moist and spread
Scythe of death
Poised, agog

If the Why
Rears his head
Let him die
Like a dog

Surge, Baphomet
Graint me Anathema
Purge me, Bephomet
From worlds in denial

Expectorate me into infinity
I thirst for the obsidian venom
Of the boundless sea of space

"You summon me
In childish play and insert time
I am devoid of pain
But I can take you there and
Beyound, if this be your wish

Come with me
And I show you the glow of
Inverted stars
Come with me
And burn in the furnace
Of inverted vision

Come with me
And there will be no more me for
The you to follow
Come with me
I am in awe of the extent of your
Ignorance

Come with me...

Since the dawn of guilt
My path has changed
Last of the Nephilim
I have lingered in the
Seclusion of wood and fear

Uncaring for your woe
For I am a god of pleaseure
I will not shed a tear
On your perished spirit
When you return".


04. The Unflesh

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Simian moths in search of
Metanoia and illuminance
Exuberant dismay will reap

Condemnation decomposes sanity
Through inhumanity and putrification
A plunge towards hopless dismal death

Another pawn has taken the fall
A mind unsound and rotted
Put him up against the wall
Along with the tortured, the raped
And the gutted

The unflesh is burning

And when the shell of
Mortal breath has ruptured
When existence has been wiped
Off the portal of perception
When, freed of shape or heart,
Anon succumbs to life-defying rapture
At last, the truth be shown

And the depravation has just begun
Unseen chasms of perdition await
The very fabric of the soul comes undone
Never to abate, the gulf digest them one by one

The unflesh is burning

And when the shell of
Mortal breath has ruptured
When existence has been wiped
Off the portal of perception
When, freed of shape or heart,
Anon succumbs to life-defying rapture
At last, the truth be shown.


05. Analepsy

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
To grim horizons
The I escapes
The body broken
A hapless shape

Thanatos rising
From Eros womb
From life awoken
My carnal tomb

Soon now...
Or never

Amorphous angels eerily sing
A glaring promise of deliverance
From devastation and suffering
Spark faint illusions of omnipotence

Come, analepsy
Unmake me
Take me away
Analepsy
Unbreak me

My soul is gone
My mind is charred
There's not much left
To be redeemed

The storm has blown
My self to shards
I drifr, bereft
Of death or dream

Soon now...
Or never

Amorphous angels eerily sing
A glaring promise of deliverance
From devastation and suffering
Spark faint illusions of omnipotence

Come, analepsy
Unmake me
Take me away
Analepsy
Unbreak me

With broken eyes
I turn to stone
Derelict, dissolved
I fade, alone

The vision dies
In a void beyond measure
Unabsolved
The decrepit ruined temple of all pleasure.


06. Edge Of Night

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Lethean crevasses
Magnetized
Inebriate the fallen
Forebode the edge of night

In absence
Discovery of luscious pain
Volcano hushed
Boiling licks, sculpting memories
Merciless hand
Lacerating to devour

Ever-seeing, sleepless drug
Atramentous
Atomize
Forgetful, shunned by
Perjuring light
Walking asleep
The core hungered, deprived

Asleep
Lost the light of day

At the borders of emptiness
The dusk of debauched desire's seizure
Revealed, on nadir enthroned,
A ceraunoscopic spectre
A pulsing sclera, wants me, spewing faces
From her hideous nidus at the edge of night

Omniverous cascades
Mesmerize
Incubate the fallen
Beget the edge of night

Severed limbs
Jolting in spasms
Convulsing to connect
To lobotomized phantasms

Asleep
Lost the light of the day.


07. No Longer Human

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Open the aethyr
With a creak like a quake
And a hiss of newborn stars

There is division, hither, homeward
We call to life
The Anti-Janus

The anti-door
That splits the mirror
We call to death
The dream of species

Release the qaos
We call to death
The inertia of incarnation

Twirling the vortex
Our gazes, hermetic,
Shall cause the tide of time to rip,

No longer morphically crucified,
Devour the form of all life
In their star-engulfing grip

Twin gaping black holes
Consume your flesh
In a halo of flearing spinning worlds

No longer human,
Your eyes are transcending
The cortex of your burning soul

Deep in the heart of Uroboros
Rectificando Invenies Clavem Occultam
Unmake all doors
Let life and death be one

Plunge with me
Into the sixth dimension
Embodied in us the phase-space of all life at once

Twirling the vortex
Our gazes spawn novas
Have caused the void of space to rip

No longer morphically crucified,
Devour the form of all life
In their star-engulfing grip

Born from our fire
The shape of all death at once

Twin gaping black holes
Consume your flesh
In a halo of flaring spinning worlds

No longer human,
Your eyes are transcending
The cortex of your burning soul.


08. Catacrusis

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Sparked by sentience
In me, immense, the globed sky
Marked by death in life
The we hatches from the I

Seek thee in me
Find me in thee
Izzu Tahuti
Bearing Horus transfigured

Catacrusis
Metanova hurled down the dimensions
Catacrusis
Raving madness only to the profane

Imminent transcendence
Bearing down, I bring the fire
The misguided shrouded
In blissful nescience

Seek the in me
Find me in thee
Izzu Tahuti
Bearing Horus transfigured

Transcendent immanence
Bearing down, I bring the fire
My corpse awaits
The universe my grave

Catacrusis
Metanova hurled down the dimensions
Catacrusis
Raving madness only to the profane.


09. Antiversum

Music & lyrics by Dark Fortress
Condensed anew
Into unspeakable immortal coil
Malkuth is trembling, lies askew
Before the end of all mortal toil

Reborn by the vastness
Of the Outer Pandemonium
Spawned by all the ungods lurking
Defiled by the Genesis

Deliver me
And I shall wrench the world wide open
For the coming of Elysium
In the dawning unlight
I shall walk the earth
As your Messiah, your Nemesis

Hiscat Barathrum

Antiversum
Cohorrescent Corpora Mea
Antiversum
Reverto Ut Frendeam Orbitem Terrarum

From behind the glass
In dimensions long cast aside
I see a shape
Familiar yet forgotten
Mummified in space and time
Lifeless, rotten

Reborn by the vastness
Of the Outer Pandemonium
Spawned by all the ungods lurking
Defiled by the Genesis

Deliver me
And I shall wrench the world wide open
For the coming of Elysium
In the dawning unlight
I shall walk the earth
As your Messiah, your Nemesis

Antiversum
Cohorrescent Corpora Mea
Antiversum
Reverto Ut Frendeam Orbitem Terrarum

Legions of nightmared flank my side
The mirror bursts like an eggshell
I emerge, black furnace in the flesh
To bring the end of all continuum

Antiversum
Cohorrescent Corpora Mea
Antiversum
Reverto Ut Frendeam Orbitem Terrarum.
