Album: Sorceress (2016)
  • I am a sinner and I worship evil
    Blood is thinner but you will never know
    Can you confess that you thrive in chaos?
    You're a sorceress and your eye is on the lost

    But you're dying
    It's in your eyes

    You're a charlatan
    You get everything you wish
    You're a harlot
    Carry poison in your kiss

    Beg forgiveness
    With a dagger in your hand
    Sow your death seed
    And reap the dying lands

    But you're crying
    It's only vice

    Empty vessel
    Drained of hope
    And none the lesser at the end of
    A rope
    Have you ever hated like I?
    Know I still awaited the absence of lies

    Watch your eager tongue
    Attack me from behind

    Riddle whispers
    Bleak futile control
    Like a twin sister
    Adapting to a role

    You're a murderer
    Bloodlust increase
    You're a harvester
    Come close to spread disease

    And you're hiding
    I hear you cry Writer/s: Mikael Akerfeldt
