Wandering through the ageless desert
Haunted by demons of ancient evil
Searching for the temple of the Old One
Years on this dark path, hunting

The essence of dark purity
Must be cleansed forever!

To carve this insanity from me
This madness that sears through me
The black tower of primordial energy awaits
The god of demons is watching, ready to devour
From the throne of shadows and time
Accursed all that live and die
This plague must be destroyed
For eons of time it has stood here
Spreading its darkness like a disease
A vast void of malediction, growing
The demons hunger knows no bounds
Horrors pour through the fields
The demon is calling to me, gnawing at my soul
Mocking me, to destroy me
At night he sends his legions out
Demons of the black abyss
They give obeisance at the temple
To further his cause of death

The essence of dark purity
Must be cleansed forever
Destroy the evil god of death!
At the temple of human darkness

The temple gates lie broken
The demons cower in fear
For they know their masters reign is at an end
They can do nothing
Their powers stripped away
Their god lies broken and defeated
Thrown in to the deepest abyss in chains
Awaiting final judgement in eternal darkness
The end of an ageless evil

You are free
For I am that I am
It is done
