Lyrics
We see the air is thick
Between the ocean and the forest mist
This blackened ocean calling for us
Our minds are drawn to hates eternal storm
The being screams it"s name to howls for more
This spawning creature rises to our shore

Dark soul of the elder gods
Spawning evil from the oceans floor
Shape shifter fools all mankind
To manipulate this world
Mankind is hypnotized
We"re standing paralyzed

We are minions in the master plan
Evil falls into unconscious minds
Building armies for the chosen one
To dominate this world
Our future will be drowned
The dark one will be crowned

We are grains in the sand of time
His power gained though the passing tides
Soon he"ll rise draining life and air
Leaving man in despair
The scriptures on the wall
Hear the Cthulhu"s call

You will see the visions peel away
Shape shifting demon
Casting spells upon the human race
Death phoenix rising
Tainted by his vile heinous stare
Consciousness fading
We are misted by his salted air
Cursing our spirit

All behold as the Cthulhu rises
Taking it"s form from the ocean floor
His tentacles grasp embrace with power
Were tantalized transfixed by evil

Spewing anger on the land below
We submit to the creatures form
Demi god reigning with his power
Were twisted, broken and torn
The age has reached us now
The dark one has been crowned

You will see the visions peel away
Shape shifting demon
Casting spells upon the human race
Death phoenix rising
Tainted by his vile heinous stare
Consciousness fading
We are misted by his salted air
Cursing our spirit
