Wake to the world of the darkness
Wake! to the world of the Night.
Burn with the fires of Hecate
Ache with the Devil’s delight.
Live in the land of Jung’s Shadow
Dance in the mind’s shady gloom
Dive into Charon’s black waters
Swing on the bellrope of Doom!
Hark to the Muse of the Lethe
Smash sanity’s last painful shard
Revel with your nightmare secrets
Give voice to the soul’s darkest bard.
Cry with your soul’s hundred voices
Fling wide the crypt in your heart
Bathe in the hungers within you
Damnation is only the start!
