A product of ancient vanity
The union of belief and science
The greatest thief of sanity
Any world has seen

It speaks in rancor and profanity
Against its will there’s no defiance
Takes the last breath of humanity
Black Thirteen

A doorway into madness
To the nineteen points of nowhere
Your every though it will possess
You will be the King’s machine

Primeval power from the abyss
An evil far beyond compare
You’ll find no love in its dark kiss
Black Thirteen

No love

Corruption of righteousness
Archetype of wickedness
Harbinger of ill will
Evil wrought with the greatest skill

Creation of the Great Old Ones
More deadly than a mass of guns
Existence becomes a dreadful routine
When you lay eyes upon Black Thirteen

Like the sleek eye of a condemned beast
It revels in lies, upon souls it feasts
Void of life, strong in death
You suffer now through Black Thirteen

No love
