Abysmal dimensions of time
within vast crystalline space
I come to devour your mind
Sleepless despair awaits

I am the choking air
before you when you close your eyes
disappearing sense of time
Dawn comes on blackened wings

Infection will arise
within distorted planes
Madness in your eyes
Abomination is my name

Start with the chosen few
agony replaces sleep
pandemic of insomnia
metastatic neural blight

Cracks form in the sky
sleepless hordes howl in pain
crowd sets itself ablaze
cataclysmic abyss


Break: Mundus Evigilavit
(The world awakens)

Now the sun never sets
delirium distorted speech
Civilization dies
Humanity finally awake

Dwelling now in my realm
sleepless marionettes
radioactive world
Spectral Overlord of the damned!
