Passing through the void
The darkes grand illusion
Chaos is riding on the wind

Destroyed in agony
They create a maddened lair
Summon all to heed their cry

Innocence fading away
- the dying eyes of the prey

[chorus]
Desperate cries, hail of fire deciding
All out fate in the night
Tempt in sin
Shadows then begin to
Gather the souls they hold within

Victims of desire
Pestilence of their invasion
Forms then take on evil waves

Paralyze, victimize
The shadows fall and enter fast
from the sky - (from the sky)
Summon all to heed their cry

Innocence fading away
- the dying eyes of the prey

[chorus]
Desperate cries, hail of fire deciding
All out fate in the night
Tempt in sin
Shadows then begin to
Gather the souls they hold within

I've betrayed - slowly fade
I repent my inner plea
I've denied - sanctified
Cannont hide from this monstrosity

I'm immersed in a curse
Of this jaded imagery
Realize that your cries
Only jeapordize this legacy

[solo]

[chorus]
Desperate cries, hail of fire deciding
All out fate in the night
Tempt in sin
Shadows then begin to
Gather the souls they hold within

[chorus]
Desperate cries, hail of fire deciding
All out fate in the night
Tempt in sin
Shadows then begin to
Gather the souls they hold within
