lyrics

One rule there is
Any one of the ghosts you let approach the blood
Will speak the truth to you

Anyone you refuse
Will turn and fade away

And with those words
The awesome shade
Strode back to the House of Death

The horrible whirlpool gulping the sea surge down
And when she spewed it up
Her churning depths would seethe and heath
Showering down, soaking both peaks at once

She swallowed the sea surge her gaping maw
The whole abyss lay bare
And the rocks around her roared
Ashen terror gripped the men

Reason
Cunning
Rationality
Knowledge
Domination
Me

Hoisting high that glowing stake with its stabbing point
Straight into the monster's eye they rammed it hard
They seized the stake with its fiery tip and bored it round and round in the giant's eye
Twisting faster, never stopping
'Till blood came boiling up around that smoking shaft
And the broiling eyeball burst
And its crackling roots blazed and hissed
So the eye of the Cyclops sizzled round that stake

(nobody)

Arrogance called human reason
They all believe in their dominion
That the monsters could be defeated
That their reason could conquer everything in the world

Reason will never win the fight
It creates the creatures it wars with
Reason will never win the battle
It creates the demon's it wars with
And gives birth to
Hell

Behind sense the nightmare awaits
Arrogance called human reason
Due to sense the nightmare exists
Sense itself creates the demon

Nobody's tricked me
Nobody's killing me

Reason
Rationality
Domination
