The Sacrilegious Scorn

Album: In Sorte Diaboli (2007)
  • Have I not
    Been too long in the shadows of invention and creation
    As I rightfully behold the flesh
    Fear of the conscious mind will have you facing away

    My word and world holds ground and is real
    Your word is like floods of poisoned water
    A language spoken with spit of different tongues

    It all seems like an eternity
    This battle between us two
    "Good and evil"
    Me and you

    Time has come to step up
    And take back what you took from me

    My word and world holds ground and is real
    Your word is like floods of poisoned water
    A language spoken with spit of different tongues
    You can never corrupt me again

    Time has come to step up
    And take back what you took from me
    You can never corrupt me again

    I protect every man guilty of sin
    The ultimate sin being me
    The vapor from the plague
    That infested my mind, body and soul
    Obscured my view from wisdom
    The mist that had me wonder in resentment cleared
    And troubles me no more

  • Slip-k-riste-n-ot from Sydney, Australiaoh yes the drumming is like machine guns, cool album and the first song i knew was sacrilegious scorn. id do anything to ge shagrath creep into my panties
  • Kain from Nod, Inone can agree, I have an autistic friend that can play drums that fast.
  • Brendan from Easton, CtIt's kind of hard to find a "turning poing" on the album, really, but this is as good as any. ICS Vortex's vocals are amazing on this song. Not to mention, I literally had a friend ask me "Is that a machine gun or drums?".
