shrine of life lyrics – kataklysm

[chapter iii – reborn through death, version ii]

marching corpse to rise
i must fulfill my new destiny
crawlwalking from my suicide

as i penetrate the exit of my home
people look up at me
with repugnance and disgust
i’m now an enemy of my race
outside my domain, i discover
that my dreaming abilities
were my undead powers
casting a spell to the point of no return
at the forgotten isle
where lies the forbidden shrine

out of my tornado field
near the sacred shrine
i climb the steps of knowledge
each step inflicts me terrible pain
decomposation of my soul
as my organs rot away
flesh falling part by part
in front of the pedestal i open the golden book
and some of my fingers fall off
a bright radiance illuminates from the book
this gleam dissolves my eyes
the pus flows on my cheeks
at this moment a voice says…

what are thine pupose?
as i answer! one of my arms breaks into pieces
i am here… i want to repend myself…
from my will of death
art thou sure?
then read aloud what is written…

i can’t, my eyes…
i must concentrate…
i see the chant of life
the mantra to reborn

ahm… mu… hum… cah…
ahm… mu… hum… cah…

now i can hear thousands of lamenting damians
around the sacred shrine
waiting for my soul to fall
my body cracks in two
i keep my faith ’till the end of the beginning
as my torso of vomiting worms dies
my brain explodes… my spirit is thrown in…
i’m alive, free to be reborn
