Un-human skin
Refrain from sunlight
Cancer of mankind
Infesting the chapels
Un-bound cruelty
Despise the sun of light
Reverse evolution
Strangling own sons
Crawling to the rebel-throne
To everlasting rottendom
treading this world like rats on a dying wheel

Worming to a broken cross
Pilgrimage to the rotting
In deep dry valleys, hidden from the sun

Conclave necrogenesis
Messiah pedophilia
Divine desecration
Will fan the flames of evil

Un-dying soul
Crusted in sunlight
Spirit burn
Drowning in deadlights
Un-hallowed touch
Banish the sun of light
Blind kingdom
Necropolis won

Of rats and men
Ranting traitor priests
Of rats and men
Abandon everything
Of rats and men
Sick atrocities
Of rats and men
Eternal pain

Devilry of redemption
Fuck your humble God!
The dead shall inherit nothing

Amen whores of Vatican
Nazarene necrophilia
Divine masturbation
Killing faith with applied evil

"Like a lashed beast you will crawl
There will be no third coming!
Your self-proclaimed prophet's call
To the sound of the hellhounds howling"

Of rats and men
Devilry of redemption
Of rats and men
Fuck your humble god
Of rats and men
The dead shall inherit nothing
Of rats and men
The hidden agenda

Of rats and men
Ranting traitor priests
Of rats an men
Abandon everything
Of rats and men
Deliver us into eternal pain
