Trample them, stamp them out
Climb upon the mound of corpses
Ascend the broken dead
Assume your crown of nothing
Detested Empress
Oblivious and blind
Hate, a crown upon her head

This kingdom was paid for in blood
A throne forged in treachery
Drink of her soiled soul
Become one of the vermin

This stigma will never fade
You are marked, forever known to be

Deathless, yet unliving
omnipotent entity

There is a price to pay
A debt for what was given
You will relinquish all
Lest they take it from you

Silence, you have lost your self
as has your debt been paid

You'll never see the light
and the warmth has gone forever
You servitude begins
This is the cross you will bear
Endless plains of ice
The wages of sin

We will grant you release
At eternities end
As the last falls from the night
