witch lyrics – belly

silvern skull, sable shroud, ebon tower, onyx crown.
witchfire, black citadel, frost-shrouded steel, moon-veiled spell.

the skyqueen of the dead rides forth, black storm-borne steeds,
(their flanks anointed by) immortal blood,
hark to the striking of the winds, the moon burns black as slaughter reigns.
witch-storm!

bright fires agleam through winter’s night,
dark spells whispered on the winds,
the trees enrob’d in veils of frost,
moonfire entwines the eye of khthon.

from the moon-swathed depths of winter-mists,
enchantress, she-who-walks-the-night-alone,
sloe-eyed shape-shifting sucubus,
silken veils and slime-smeared flesh.
witch-storm!

storm-witch, hearken this night,
hone this black blade with sorcery,
battle-spells annoint my flesh,
let blood and steel be my glory.

elder tongues encarved in sinistrous slime-flecked stone,
the obsidian tower broods ‘neath the moon,
winged fiends descend from storm-wrought skies,
black ring, key to the shadow gate, aglow with eldritch spells.

forged in witchfire, envenomed steel,
ensorcelled blade, blood-ravening,
ebon demon’s tooth, the bane of kings,
red rain of slaughter, prow of blood.
witch-storm!
