01. Snakes For The Divine

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
Gazing at gold, the ancient crime
Rise up, fall down
Cities come alive and they will die
Rise up, fall down
Ten thousand years are left behind
Rise up, rise up tonight

Given your sentence,
you're handed the snakes of divine

Suffer the scourge by the powers invested in night
Running the course of the wolves and they're killing our kind
Oh how their claws come ripping

Suffering peace, the endless time
Rise up, fall down
Gazing at gold, the ancient crime
Rise up, fall down
Cities come alive and they will die
Rise up, fall down
Ten thousand years are left behind
Rise up, rise up tonight

Blacked out sky, and beliefs in pillars time
Manifest death and our killers come to life
Breaking this spell and end my master's life

Repelled
Repelled

Blacked out sky, and beliefs in pillars time
Manifest death and our killers come to life
Breaking this spell and end my master's life

Repelled
Repelled

Blood trickles down through histories
Given your sentence,
you're handed the snakes of divine
Blood trickles down through histories
Given your sentence,
you're handed the snakes of divine

Gazing at gold, the ancient crime
Rise up, fall down
Cities come alive and they will die


02. Frost Hammer

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
Dream being thrown down aloft between from the icy sky
Careful what to seek for inside the frozen mind
Permaglaze reflects this world distant to the thawed life
Frost clan blows the war horn without a fear or guise

Messiah of the glacian heir cold born to rise
Sullen boots impact upon deep the tundra ice
Glorify your greatness, sealed deal cold compromise
Catch the sun to melt these forborne galactic eyes

Plateau of Leng
Winter in veins Hammers arise
To melt through the ice
Dream being thrown down aloft from the icy sky
Careful what to seek for inside the frozen mind
Permaglaze reflects this world distant to the thawed life
Frost clan blows the war horn without a fear or guise
Messiah of the glacian heir cold born to rise
Sullen boots impact upon deep the tundra ice
Glorify your greatness, sealed deal cold compromise
Catch the sun to melt these forborne galactic eyes

Plateau of Leng
Winter in veins
Hammers arise
To melt through the ice

Sail the seas of endless night
Despotic warlord casts his blight
Sons of the north abide
Frost child of abhorrent line
Feed the serpent, drink the wine
Granite heart, unrepentant

Frost hammer
Frost hammer
Frost hammer
Frost hammer

Plateau of Leng
Winter in veins
Hammers arise
To melt through the ice

Frost hammer


03. Bastard Samurai

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
Count my fingers ten
Dressed to kill and think again
Count my fingers nine
Do the math your sacrifice
Son of a bitch should bleed awhile

Fighting under style
Sleeping under death awhile
Gladiators ring
Sharpening my blade to sting
Son of a bitch your fate I'll bring

Profit melee are all mesmerized
All betray the bastard samurai
Profit melee on this killing floor
All betray the bastard samurai

Bastard samurai
Bastard samurai

The killer I've become
Tattoo heart yakuza's thumb
Killing men aside
Severed heads abide
Son of a bitch should bleed awhile

Bastard samurai
Bastard samurai

Count my fingers ten
Dressed to kill and think again
Count my fingers nine


04. Ghost Neck

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
Feeding the needs of a desperate survival
Criminally active, not by choice
Overdosing on the mutual garbage
Skeleton the end unfolds
Empty raptured withered human
Cloaked dejection your demise
Shackled laid upon this dead prisoner
Screaming the waste, a deadly voice

Choke conjection and confusion
Surprised you're standing on your feet
Diabolic accusations
Pharisees are not to teach
Buy contempt and your conviction
Crushing others with disease
Horns are showing through the halo
Heroin is such a feast

Morning fever speaking in a vice
Dead deceiver
Sinking in the ice
Madman's sorrow

I've seen things
You're nothing
Believe me

Speaking in a voice
Morning fever
Sinking in the ice

I've seen things
You're nothing
Believe me

Running the circus like a leper
Licking your wounds, an injured hound
Fucked up, doomed and desecrated
Reside six feet underground
Mauled and incapacitated
Lame and dumb are at your feet
Never mind the true conception
Madman's sorrow is what you eat

Feeding the needs of a desperate survival
Criminally active, not by choice
Overdosing on the mutual garbage
Skeleton the end unfolds

Feeding the needs of a desperate survival
Criminally active, not by choice
Overdosing on the mutual garbage


05. Fire, Flood & Plague

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
The sanctioned annihilation
Death tax to the third world equation
The movement of the masses
Exodus of a populous
Breaking the sealed nightmare
Fire, flood, plague have come here
Mouth of the sword delivers
Spine, tendons, shakes and shivers

A light of basking lament
Father of manifestations
Mother of all creation
Gives doom to generations

Its bastard abomination
Humans with sickly faces
The soulless contradiction
A makeshift apparition
Lying in a pool of distance
Not knowing where the truth is
Standing in a graves museum
Lie down, and sleep this victim

A light of basking lament
Father of manifestations
Mother of all creation
Gives doom to generations

The fire hail raining
The storms torment destroying
Now come the angels threshing
Welcome to world extinction

We have been gathered here to
Die in this blackened nightmare
The psalm that separates us
Onto a pain in death

The place of Armageddon
Condemned and cursed the countdown
The terror of war and famine
The end of all we know is here

The sanctioned annihilation
Death tax to the third world equation
The movement of the masses
Exodus of a populous
Breaking the sealed nightmare
Fire, flood, plague have come here
Mouth of the sword delivers
Spine, tendons, shakes and shivers

A light of basking lament
Father of manifestations
Mother of all creation
Gives doom to generations

The sanctioned annihilation
Death tax to the third world equation
The movement of the masses


06. How Dark We Pray

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
Serpent came to Eve from Tiamat
Immortality was known by man

Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray

Spirit assassin dressed in black before your shrine
A woman's coffin sending shivers up my spine
Nailed are hands upon the cross so intertwined
A saintly mother sacrificed before your hive

They drink the life
They eat of flesh

Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray

The brain washed ghost of thought endless lies have come to bind
Four thousand years of mystery surrounding the signs
The Children scream aloud when pain and guilt align
The failing mass of contradiction in their finds

They drink the life
They eat of flesh

Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray

Shadows on the day of philstia
All will have to seek of Visigoth

The Serpent came to Even with a message from Tiamat
Death and immortality was known to man
Three had become four and five
Lilith had taken to conception
and was cursed to unearth where demons
and man did not dwell together

Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray
Oh, how dark we pray

Serpent came to Eve from Tiamat
Immortality was known by man


07. Holy Flames Of The Fire Spitter

Music & lyrics by High on Fire
Deathly manner in the army to fight
Holy flames that have once come alive
We embrace tonight
Acrid sword, sharp as my life

Divine

Light the beacon through the embers of time
I've been betrayed, but now cross my line
Reborn to thrive
Cut 'em down, storming the hive

Divine

Fire Spitter
Fire Spitter

Power of the old ways shrined
Arise the spirit of the war god's kind
Fire baptized line
At your throat, accursed line

Fire Spitter
Fire Spitter

Deathly manner in the army to fight
Holy flames that have once come alive
We embrace tonight
