Black clouds fill the day sky In the primitive lands of Nod As the two sons of Adam offer up Their gifts (of pride) to the one reigning high A dark fate born by sacrificial fire
Caine: 'Oh, great father of my father Whom thou banished from thy garden Look down upon thy faithful servant And accept my beloved brother.'
With tears of love the firstborn thrust His sharpest scythe deep into Abel's heart Rendering him lifeless but eternally Prized in the mind of god as his body withered In the scorching blaze
Caine: 'Oh, my dear brother Forgive me for what I have done But to the one almighty A greater prize I have none.'
Adam: 'Caine, thou has broken my seal of absolute love The crime thou'st committed meets not The approval of him above Forever shall you wonder in the lands beyond alone And from this day forth I cannot call thee my own.'
Caine: 'Oh, father my great father Why hast thou cursed me so? Have I not done what thou asked for? To the shadowed woods I cannot go.'
Adam: 'I can no longer endure thy sinful words This greatly unmerciful deed hast done his wrong I pray that thou find ways to repent And as I was cast out so you shall be gone!' Be gone!
Exiled, the firstborn rushes off to the obscure yet Welcoming arms of Cimmerian darkness For there he shall find great wisdom And awaiting beneath the crescent moon lurks The mother of magick...
Caine: 'Alone in the darkness I can hear The sweetest voice Whispering words of surcease And I rejoiced!
Who would dare speak to one so Condemned as I? Do you know of my most wicked crime?'
Lilith: 'I'm known as Lilith, your father's first bride Like you I'm cursed to dwell in the shadows of night.'
Caine: 'How can one survive here in the dark groves forlorn? Without a sole compainion of a friend of some form?'
Lilith: 'But there are many compainions in my infinite kingdom. Through magick and sorcery I've found my freedom.'
Caine: 'I was cold and she clothed me, I starved And she fed me, I was mournful yet she loved me.
I shed bloody tears and she made them dissapear She kissed away my tears Her powers I could see would forever set me free
I begged her to awake me Her blood, sweet as wine, as I drank she would sigh Then I closed my eyes
Into the dark I fell and fell A deepest abyss Surrounded by obscurity A price for her gift
Out from the frigid blackness Came a radiant glimmering light Revealing the flaming archangel Known as Michael'
Michael: 'Cursed son of Adam Indeed his mercy is great Bow thy head and repent thine sins now Before it's too late.'
Caine: 'Not by his grace but my own, I choose to live with pride Your 'merciful' god disgusts me His kingdom infested with lies.'
Michael: 'You sad irrelevant fool Have thy no shame? You shall forever fear the light Of the living flame.'
Caine: 'On the mornign by silver wing Raphael came to me and said Abel did forgive me Not by his (forgiveness) but mine own For darkness is my home
I walk alone My skin would burn by the sun's rays I learned And the dawn had returned to earth below I did run seeking shelter from the sun The endless night of Caine had begun
When I awoke, Uriel appeared The reaper with black wings But thrice denied his grace Hence, my blood-curse begins...'
My wrathful cries of anguish Filled that dismal night I tore at my flesh and drank my crimson tears
When I glanced up Appearing in a myriad of stars The illustrious archangel Gabriel shimmered Like the moon in my eyes Bringing mercy even to the damned
But why? Why?
He spoke of a path The path of Golconda From which my children could once again Inhabit the light
Without another word, he disappeared And I conceived I had awakened at last
Then the bright-eyed demoness Taught me how to hide from the eyes Of those who dare to hunt us How to command obedience And demand respect
Soon I found myself attaining (yet) greater powers I could alter forms, control all beasts and perceive Beyond sight
Eventually I had to abandon Lilith And flee from the barren lands of Nod Set out to procreate my progeny Caine's children shall inherit the night
Of all my children, none so beloved My sweet Zillah, none so desired Her tender skin, her blood so saccharine I was mesmerized by her enchanting eyes
But she would turn from me, she had no love to me Nothing I'd provide could keep her satisfied So I took to roam the wilderness alone Amid the whispering trees, a wrinkled crone I did see
Crone: 'My spell can make thee win her heart Drink of my blood then we'll start'
Caine: 'Her (foul) blood I drank for many nights And Zillah indeed became my wife'
Crone: 'The elixir hast bound thee My serving thrall thou always be'
Caine: 'But after a year (and a day) her grasp (on me) had gone With a stake through the heart, I left her to the dawn'
Per me si va ne la citta dolente Per me si va ne l'etterno dolore Per me si va tra la perduta gente Guistizia mosse il mio alto fattore Fecemi la divina podestate La somma sapienza e'l primo amore Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create Se non etterne, e io etterno duro Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate
Through me you enter the woeful city Through me you enter eternal grief Through me you enter among the lost Justice moved my high maker The divine power made me The supreme wisdom, and the primal love Before me nothing was created If not eternal, and eternal I endure Abandon every hope, you who enter
On the first day of Gehenna The shrieking winds shall be silent And when a black sun hangs from a somber sky Caine's sleeping children shall once again arise
When antediluvians awake from eons of slumber The strongest of us shall fall prey to their hunger Countless storms shall quake the earth As the world turns icy cold
On the second day of Gehenna Our father shall return And unite his wretched kindred To the ebon throne of city Enoch
The vile culprits of diablerie Shall meet their deserved fate To drink the scarlet tainted from the first-born Eating away their breathless bodies
And there shall be battle The next millennium antediluvians rule But shall be borne a woman bearing lunar mark The only key to our salvattion...
I slept in the fires of Hades But did not burn I breathed in sulphorous vapors To reach the astral plane
I tamed the three-headed Cerberus Then devoured his flesh I stared deep at the face of the Gorgon And made her turn to stone
I made love to Prosperine To taste its bitter venom I shot an arrow into the eye of the Cyclops The earth shook as he fell
I called the mighty Kraken And watched him rise to do my bidding I soared on the wings of the great dragon To feel the infernal wind
I hunted the enchanted unicorn To obtain its horn of power I entered the labyrinth of Daedalus And slayed the ferocious Minotaur
I came as the great star To ignite the blaze of the Phoenix I'll come to you in the shape of Incubus And plant my deadly seed
Eurus, we call upon the east wind Notus, we call upon the south wind Zephyrus, we call upon the west wind Boreas, we call the north wind Spirit mother hear thy pagan son
On winter solstice night Waxing mon reveals a new dawn (The) dark king transforms to infant light The cycle of ancient times has begun IO'EVOHE we are reborn
Candlemass brings the (growing) child sun The triple goddess comes shining down As witches sing with inspiration Spiral dancing round and round
The spring equinox rises high (The) dark maiden returns to us The woods abound with faery goblins Pan performs his songs of lust
Rejoice in the beltane sabbat When lilac performes this magickal night Naked we leap the sacred fire And feast upon fruits and violet wine
On the day of summer solstice The sun king will embrace the litha queen And perish in the wake of Lughnasad So may a splendid harvest be reaped
On Mabon we follow the lord of shadows The empty season is upon us Lady autumn blows leaves of sadness Chanting as our offerings turn to dust
Ancestor wraiths ride on Samhain night To proclaim the mystery of passing Wearing a death cloak smiles the waning king Let us see what the future will bring
Death is rebirth The end brings new beginning Ever turning The wheel of the Pagan cycle
Anadia... Klephera... Nuit... Mercury... Hestia... Horus... Brigit... Vulcan... Aphrodite... Ea... Isis... Akasha... IO EVOHE!
Goat horned god Wandering free in the woodlands and mystical forests To thee I owe my manhood For thine sexuality is untamed ans pure Satyr-king for centuries worshipped A legacy born in the bosom of man Lust beyond love, love beyond lust Ruler of nymphs I praise thee
The wilderness is yours O great son of Herme and lovely Dryope When arcadians gather and sing The sweet sound of your pipe Will resound through the night Beyond wide valleys and streams
Thou make all wood-nymphs run with fright With thine phallus awe-inspiring Like Dionysus and Cernunnos The muses sing in thine glory
I am one of thousand in thy flock Be my shepherd, guide my cock Oh universal Pan Reveal thyself to me, make me mad
