The Crawling Chaos (In the Court of Nyarlathotep)

from by Garroted



This is where it all began-- our first song as Garroted.


Black hangs tomorrow’s dawn
A sombre premonition of ceaseless bereavement
Inherent disillusion now clouds consciousness
Sanity dims as nightfall ensues
Tomorrow a dream you never conceive
Tomorrow a black usurpation
Nyarlathotep, by this name you suffer
Nyarlathotep, by this name you rot

Black wind crawls
Across barren lands
Insanity that targets feeble man
The Skinless one
The Masked Messenger
Speaker of the Bloodiest Tongue
Blind chaos born
The earth weeps with scorn
The fabric of existence now torn
Who'll leave us bereft
Who'll inherit the earth
Who’ll summon death (Nyarlathotep)

Your time has come to see the light
Of crawling chaos’ darkest night
You can only hope that you die
Or you'll see the world through empty eyes
Kneel before the faceless gods
The madness that does slowly trod
Now you know the plague that falls
The madness of Chaos that crawls

Eyes torn from sockets
The faces that no longer breathe
Irrevocable madness that is he

Crawling black across lands plagued by meteorfall,
eternally writhes he in grotesque chaos awaiting the call
Black mist through ebony night
as humanity suffers under ivory moonlight
Teeming endless madness,
The lands he does smite
