  • By burial this night
    Nitocrys weaves the spell
    Down the vault's misty light
    The lurking Sphinx dwells

    Agony and nightmare
    To Yog sothoth they noan
    Nightfalls, morbid affair
    Beard the faceless one

    In the nuclear domain
    Arcades lost in eternal skries
    Written by the insane
    Nitocrys orders must

    Agony and nightmare
    To Yog sothoth they noan
    Nightfalls, morbid affair
    Beard the faceless one

    Mummy's rebirth by wrath
    Below the temple of nile
    Vanished in Osiris' path
    Above us reigns the Necrophile

    Agony and nightmare
    To Yog sothoth they noan
    Nightfalls, morbid affair
    Beard the faceless one
