02. The Gates

Music by David Grimoire
Lyrics by Adrian De Crow
Value the words in my dark tale
I speak 'bout the countess of hell
With weight of guilt i bear my cross
Save me, my lord, if you can
My strength is weak and my conscience dim
Hear this plea from a troubled and afflicted soul
I light a candle with a wish for deah as it slowly burns

When the moonlight reaches your window she sweeps out from the dark
She moves near, smooth as a cat
Her ember eyes locked on sight

Come to me, let's get lost in the twilght
Seems so long since i saw you, my dear
Dream away. come take my hand

The madam lures you into her service with words sweeter than wine
She'll pretend, fill you head up with lies then slowly slash you apart
Oh, precious life giving blood
"What lurks in the darkness?"
You will know she betrayed you from fortune once you've entered her realm

Magical moments - where is the logic that rhymes?
I'll offer my heart and soul to be by your side
Magical moments - is the truth always stronger than lies?
This cannot be happening. i'm losing my mind

Nunc anima mea turbata est
Pater, salvifica me ex hora hac
Et a peccato meo munda me
Domine, salus mea

I saw peasant girls pass the gate. one by one they walked into hell
Like sheep brought to the slaughter. never to return
Time, I curse thee time, oh time.
The mirror speaks the truth
Dripping with new spilt blood she thought she'd found a way
The secret of eternal youth, for beauty to go by her name
Wash away all my sorrow, preserve me just the way i am

Embraced by morning but the anguish linger on
This torment does not seem to find
Infernal madness, her method for pleasure
There's no reflection at all
Oh, precious blood fills the halls. "that dreadful aptitude"
She'll make you bleed, tear your flesh into pieces or tie you upon a stake

Magical moments - here is the logic that rhymes?
I opened the gates to hell to rule by your side
Magical moments - see my skin getting smoother tonight
Can this be happening? now lick her skin clean

Deep in my heart, deep in my soul
Hear the voice begin to speak
Forever dead, forever free
And forever belongs to me
Deep in my heart, deep in my soul
Hear the voice begin to speak
Forever dead, forever free
And forever belongs to me
Forever belongs to me
Forever belongs to me


03. Blood Countess Bathory

Music by David Grimoire
Lyrics by Adrian De Crow
Beware! you don't know what i've seen, what she hides in her chamber below
Beware of the devil enchantress
Every thought will bring you despair. her thaumaturgy is stronger than you'll ever know
She'll maim you limb by limb

I will not close my eyes. i can't let this go on
If i'd look away now then who would i be?
I won't take caution. your words deceive
Confess your sins and fall down on your knees

Departed somewhere between heaven and hell
Feel me, you will decry what he once saw
Hold me, feeling so lost without your love
You will see what beautiful eyes can't comprehend, never, never

And thy promise is broken, what is now to await?
I saw a blade flash where the light radiates
Blood on the wall, blood on the floor
Midnight approaches, soon tears gonna fall
Blood on the wall, blood on the floor
And the young girls are crying like never before
Don't get fooled by the things he tells you
Can't you see i'm countess bathory
Countess bathory

There's blood on the carpet, there's blood on her knife
Fingers are pierced, her ladyship smiles
Pin by pin, i must have whats deep within
If it hurts then simply pull them out

Trapped in thy castle of malice. "condemned"
Captive and all alone

By god, we came too late
In the castle drained bodies remains
I confine you to your tower
And wait for your demons to swallow you whole

I'm the ruler, i am your king
I own the air that you breathe
I command you to do as i please
Bid farewell as i reel the thread of life

See it's time, the moon arise
Slowly tempting my fortitude
Still within these halls they scream
Entwined by my touch divine
Gaze into my furnace eyes
Senses are consumed tonight
Fall into a spiralled doom
Spill your blood and die

Thy deeds are over, we've torn down your gate
The trial has begun, your accomplices arraigned
Blood on the wall, blood on the floor
For what they have done their heads are going to roll
Blood on the wall, blood on her hands
No words passed your lips but silence means yes
Gone are dreams, return to me
Can't you see i'm countess bathory
Countess bathory

Your spell has been lifted and evil withdrawn
No one should bathe in a glory so vain
A trail of tears will forever be. can't you see?
Rot in your prison, you can't break free

Trapped in thy castle of malice. "condemned"
Kept inside four walls of stone


04. The 13th Guest

Music by David Grimoire
Lyrics by Adrian De Crow
Here I lie. feeling my life drift on by
I long for blood again
Only darkness surrounding me
Left to die, betrayed by my own destiny
I have come to set you free
By ths next full moon she will return

Wolves howl by the light of the moon
A pale rider forcing his way through
The wood reputed to be haunted
Arrives to the village below
As he advanced lightning split overhead
Dismounted his steed
And an old man opens the door

Barthok, the inn keeper so wise
Thirteen guests at this supper tonight
All arguing the countess's demise
Stranger, what do you say?
Silent you've sat in the corner at bay
Emerge from the dark
The black clad stranger rose

He spoke so fierce
Take heed to what i say
I've seen her claw, i know
The symbol of insanity

Listen close, one and all,
You better believe
And tonight she will come,
She's been revived

Witchcraft! that's what you say
How can it be she's returned from the grave?
The stranger replied with a grin
Evil spreading its wings
Understand,
The end of your lives' close at hand
The tempter knows you can not hide
From the dark

And god repine
Seek and you shall find
Spawn of hate newborn
Summoned by depravity

Hear as i sing for you all
This tune of devastation
The sign of the cross has been broken
Now my time has come

06. Mythos Lamia

Music by David Grimoire
Lyrics by Adrian De Crow
Eneter the malicious lair
Malicious crypt of despair
Once you've past the lattice door
You're lost beyond the nevermore

The darkness is beckoning me
Seductive you lure me to thee
Shadows dancing upon the walls
As death roams these cavern halls

Follow the flickering light
Into the heart of the night
Weavers of the web of fear
The cries of tormented souls I hear

The future I have forseen
It came to me through a dream
13 witches there I saw
A covenant in secrecy

Has not spoken for a thousand years
Realm of shadows, a reign of fear
I'm at the edge of insanity
I don't belong here, please set me free

Out from the darkness enthralled by the moon
The glare of black candles enlighten the room
Forming a circle their souls are entwined
A mass for the dead, aeons of time

Chamber of death, mystical rites
Between these walls of horror
Oh, leave me be for all eternity
The crystal is clear, there faces I fear
Within these halls of sorrow
Oh, leave me be for all eternity

Another worshipper's won
Thine to be when all's done
Deluded victims of the witch
She will benight and chastise thee

They gather in supremacy
To summon their god to appear
Bond slaves of the evil one
Their desolating hands I feel

Death enshrouds me in a freezing grip
Drawn by her power, I renounce all hopes
Must be a demon that speaks to me
She bids me welcome, please do come in


07. Forbidden

Music by David Grimoire
Lyrics by Adrian De Crow
Last night your spirit entered my mind
For once things could not fail
Can it be the mirrors turned self-displayed?
So many words that we left unspoken

Yet i dare not to fall asleep again
It is then pain becomes alive
Every time i close my eyes,
Forbidden dreams

Have you ever seen water turn into wine?
I drown my endless nights under a sea
Have you ever seen what the future will bring?
Will i only dream forbidden dreams?

I was torn that day you took farewell
Is there a reason and i wonder why?
I know that nothing ever stays the same
For what it's worth my heart holds no regrets

Yet i dare not to fall asleep again
It is then pain becomes alive
Every time i close my eyes,
Forbidden dreams

Have you ever seen water turn into wine?
I drown my endless nights under a sea
Have you ever seen what the future will bring?
Will i only dream forbidden dreams?

I held your hand but you slipped away at the edge of eternity
I will always remember the smile on your face
I saw colours fade away at the edge of eternity
I will always remember you

Yet i dare not to fall asleep again
It is then pain becomes alive
Every time i close my eyes,
Forbidden dreams


08. Stone By Stone

Music by David Grimoire
Lyrics by Adrian De Crow
Come inside the darkest recess of my mind
Feel the wrath, torment and pain
A well-known source of my misery emerges once more

If i could turn back time, i would sell my soul
If i could see her face, forevermore

Step inside, cross the threshold of my mind
See my troubles, see my strife
Condemned am i to suffer so long
Am i better of alone?

Another trap has sprung for me, repent and then repeat
It's got to have a meaning, has to be an end

Stone by stone, brick by brick
What counts comes from deep within
Stone by stone, brick by brick
It all comes down to this

A castle left, built incomplete
What's a kingdom without a queen?

Dreams are torn, ravished to pieces
What we had were not meant to be
Now i've turned into a nightfall diciple
Forced to face the demon in me

My world's just a wasteland of ruins and dust
I have to break away

Draw a line, but i cross every border
I have died more than five thousand times
All seems gone, is there a 'morrow?
Last resort but, the method's a sin

Grab into the darkest recess of my mind
Take this mischief and sadness away
Put out the source of my misery
Please, set me free

So i silently grinned with pleasure
While i colored the path where i strayed
Impaled by a love so unfulfilled, i'm heaven denied

Stone by stone, brick by brick
What counts comes from deep within
Stone by stone, brick by brick
It all comes down to this

Slowly approaching toward the flames
No more delusions, hell awaits

Do you believe there is more than one meeting?
Only death or reincarnation of souls?
Truth be shown on the edge of my dagger
Here i lie with blood on my hands

A lifeless carcass is all that remains
But i never thought twice

Draw a line, but i cross every border
I have died more than five thousand times
Life is done, it's finally over
Last resort, but the method's a sin

Sunlight, i opened my eyes and the shadows drifted aside
While we conduct our fate as we choose,
Lift the load, stone by stone
Sunlight, i opened my eyes and the shadows drifted aside
While we conduct our fate as we choose,
Lift the load, step by step
