1. Intro: Soushiki

2. Shingontachikawa

I need the power

the principle of all things, that rules us all the time
the hidden power my lust evokes, known in ancient rhyme.
turning sexual energy into the power to kill
ritual pleasure sets it free and fullfills my will.

at the burial site on a moon-shrouded night
searching for a skull to complete my altar
the skull of the wise or of the high priests
the skull of a king to awake the inner beast

who is calling my name? I pray for power!

unholy sexuality brings me to a realm you'll never see
feel my wrath rise and it will set my lust free
shingontachikawa, the ancient cult - the dark belief, I hold you high.

the skull as a symbol of the supreme evil, I hold you high!
grant to me all the powers of darkness!

I need the power

seven years of the secret rite before the decollated skull
all will be achieved tonight, sky is blackened, moon is full,
the incense of hangonkou burnt more than a thousand times
mandala on the skull starts to glow, it's time for you to die.

the lord of evil, in shadow, appeared to me
gave me knowledge, and spoke to me of sanze,
crossed the abyss between past, present, future -
the forbidden wisdom, for now I possess jintsu.

I've got the power!

3. Doman Seman

nine stars, nine palaces, my curse...

the symbol of death for you
(is) the symbol of power for me

nine letters, nine words, evil verse...

the sigil of doman empowers me
for you are the one who is doomed

five elements: fire, water, earth, gold and wood

five lords: north, south, east, west and centre

the sigil of seman enlightens me
for you will burn in the eternal flame

I point at the air and chant the mantra of destruction!

(my) violent desire rises from the depths of my darkened soul
evoking the storm that destroys everything, to black chaos I call

nine stars, nine palaces, my curse will kill
nine letters, nine words, evil verse will kill
five lords: north, south, east, west and centre
five elements: fire, water, earth, gold and wood.

fight: fly high - the doman, fly high - the seman

the sigil of doman filled with my hate, your fate is sealed
the sigil of seman burns with my anger, your life is doomed

in the middle of the night standing in the old shrine
feeling thousands of spirits crawls inside this body of mine

4. Imiuta

5. Shikigami

I, I curse all who get in my way
I, I'll slay their very souls
I, I command the spirits to obey
I, I will let them die in woe

a parchment scroll or a piece of wood
I pour my life into them and become as one
there is no method of escape for them
spirits called by the dogs' blood spell hunt my enemies
exacting my vengeance on your feeble life

on your life...

I, I let people fear my shikigami
I, I am jaki himself
I, I call upon abominable kegare
I, I will be the king

throw a paper bird to the south and it will fly true
for when the paper bird comes, it's the end of you
you will die in agonising pain
vermin will feed on your cold remains

feeling it coming from above, it will take you...
there is no way to break my curse...
