How I wonder where you go.
Up into the sky so vast,
Like a nightmare that will last.
When the mortals' hope is gone,
Whose wretched world you shine upon,
Then you show your giant eye,
Twinkle, Ghroth, the end is nigh.
The scary Haunter of the Dark
Thanks you for your eldritch spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
On Yith, Yaddith, Cykranosh, Xoth,
From Celaeno to Yuggoth,
They all fear your spooky eye,
Twinkle, Ghroth, the end is nigh.
As your eerie, awful spark
Bodes doom and chaos in the dark,
I don't know where you are to go,
Twinkle, twinkle, giant Ghroth.

A perfect winter day
Ruined by the hellish moon-glint of evil snows
We run from the city
From the blackness of the Messenger from the Stars.
And his poisonous smile.
Now, we cannot sleep

Better to die exhausted
Than to have those nightmares one more time.
Fear and hope are no longer vision
All we can see in sleep is Deaths door.
Soon we can recline on couches of the dead

The trucks made their way down the mud covered road towards the old town that looked as if it had seen many nasty storms through the centuries it had existed. The walls of the small buildings and houses had a tint of deteriorated blue, seeming to have rotted over time in the rain and debris. The cracked, faded windows looked

No one may live after looking in your eyes
In your laughter I hear tortured cries
On twilit wings you´ll make the night arise
Our sunset palace of marble and sand
A lethal height above the land
Many souls obey your command
Far does it reach your dark hand
A black passion runs in your veins
Mortal souls show unholy stains
Until we are all that still remains
Over this realm the Sunset City reigns
We will fly once more, hunting them all
They will learn to fear our call
The lords of the living cities will come to fall
And we´ll be what history will recall
Look in my eye

The unfamiliar sun streamed down through the window, giving everything within the room a glistening effect. The blinds were only partially shut to let in the bright ultraviolet rays. It was, however, a welcomed sight from the opening eyes of Sam. It was as if her mind was experiencing it for the first time, her mind restarting itself with new memories and new senses of joy to face.
It was then that Sam recognized where she was, in the bedroom of her ap

'Since the recent reemergence of Shadows, I've been in contact with a group of Persona users in Inaba.' Mitsuru had gathered them all in the Dorm lounge, just after breakfast. 'They've also reported Shadows emerging during the last emergence.'
'It's not just here?!' Yukari gasped. 'We... We can't stop them across the entire world!'
Mitsuru held up a hand to silence her.
'I've also made contact with a group of Persona users in Sumaru City. They've stopped the attacking Shadows there too.'
'Do you think they'll return?' Ken wondered.

Changing from shape to shape,
Walking on both worlds,
Creating suffering as my shadow spreads,
Leaving madness in my wake,
I answer the summons of my masters,
Serving beings of insanity,
Fulfilling the bidding of the lords of beyond,
The sound of the infernal flute follows me as they play,
I go forth in their name,
As I set foot in the world of men,
The very earth shakes at my coming,
Bringing forth the monstrosities of the void,
The souls of humanity I take,
In the minds of men I stalk,
I am a destroyer of worlds,
I am the black pharaoh dementia,
I am the messenger of the Outer Ones,

It was a vampire bat
That sucked my blood
In that church last night.
Not a ghost or a ghast,
And it certainly wasn't
Something i summoned
From another dimension,
I didn't slit my wrists.
What i just said was gibberish,
Not a magic spell.
It spews out of
my mouth sometimes.
Sticks and stones can break your bones
But words can never hurt you.
I know i've gone insane
You can ask me and poke me
And consult your books,
But you'll never solve my mystery.
Anyway, it doesn't matter
I'm not important anymore.
I've served my purpose,
Done what was needed

'Why are we doing this?' The oldest of the three demanded.
'Sh!' the middle one hissed. 'You're going to give us away, Margaret!'
'Why are we breaking into their house?'

'Something you want...' Theo corrected her.

Faceless Sphynx You mustn’t think I’m insane, I am only saying what I saw – what I know. True, I have never seen my reflection – but that is because I can see beyond what others can. You laugh because I shun mirrors and fear the dark… But – God! If only you know what I have seen! Yea – I have looked into the very heart of the universe, and have beheld Him – a daemon-sultan, Lord of All, kept in check only by the thin piping of unknown daemon flutes.

Invocation Of The Old OnesThese demons may lie dormantInvocation Of The Old Ones1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
But they do never die
They will rise again
To rip this world awry
Lord Cthulhu partakes of his ancient slumber undisturbed
In his fortress submerged
He lies dead but dreaming, unconsciously observes
When the stars are right
And the heavens correctly aligned
The dark lord will rise from the sea
To destroy mankind
Recitate the sacred passages of the Necronomicon
A book bound in human flesh and inked in blood
Chant the unholy incantations to invoke the old ones
The dreaded lord has slept for an eternity
But the time comes of his dominion
Death and destruction, all that's left for humanity
The Prophecy of ZarahThe discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the early part of the 20th century is one of the most important episodes in the field of Bible scholarship. They have been studied and transcribed for decades, so it was quite a shock when an unnoticed Hebrew text was found in the collection. The theology of this text, apart from references to Sheol (the abode of the dead) and the primordial chaos monster Leviathan, is quite unlike anything found in the Qu'mran community, the Bible or the Ancient Near East as a whole.

I'm sitting in a chair in a dark room. There's a desk in front of me, and I can't help but take in every detail of it. It's what I've been taught to do. There's a slightly dirty mug filled with water I'm not going to drink in front of me. Next to it is a big urn thingy filled with even more water, should I get real thirsty. The desk has seen a lot of punishment. One of the legs is shorter than the rest, meaning I can't really rest my arms on this thing, or it'l
