"Root Of The Mountain" lyrics - ABBATH

"Root Of The Mountain"

Stooped, now the wraith, more shadow than flesh
Once mighty hews lie sunken in chest
Spectral hoar frost spat on breath
Pulse ebbs, yet, still lord of death
A silent tongue whispers tumors in head
Bending will of war-dogs led

To glorious carnage armies were fed
Leech to thrombosis, nations were bled
World quailed in terror, stricken with fear
Parents slew children as juggernaut drew near

Beneath vast crush of crag
Entombed in gut of molten slag
Archon, king cursed to live
As regent in Abyss of eldritch Necropolis

Stalking caverns, gargantuan scope
A revenant sits on his throne
Emperor infernal in city of Bone
And shattered stone
Shattered stone

At world's edge, mighty range
Cuts through the clouds, impaling heaven
Follow fissures down, behold:
The root of the mountain
