Avenger - Shadows of the Damned (demo)
2. Kořeny zla
Roots of Evil
Surprised by the pain, he closed his eyes, he cried out loudly, contorted his face.
The torment wasn't moderated and his major help hasn’t come. And another nail
Penetrated deep into the flesh. Gigantic suffering cannot be reduced by any faith.
Silent prayer won't get him redeemed.
Pierced by metal upon the wooden cross. Overcome by disappointment he cursed
His god. Why has his own father let his wounds bleed and supperate? Sun simmers
And attacks still more and more. The dust settles into the eyes, dries the tears. And
Tortures and there have been the beginnings of evil here.
Covered by the priestly vestments they perceive their order only from position of rules. An implement of god's might in hands. But souls tied by thorny chains. The omnipotent monsters manage the world not considering the others. They have given the symbol as idol. Symbol of Christ, killed and buried long ago, but they conduct like with no conscience. They kept crowds of believers in the dusk of lighted torches. With desire of preserving their power, they supposed this is the only way to keep the world clean. But people looked at the faces of their tyrants and started to recognize ambiguity of the sermons, that what seemed to be right and redemption became a great menace!
4. Nelze zapomenout
NOT POSSIBLE TO FORGET
You are the last one of your kin. Kin of the damned. Sentenced to death for treachery to the cross. Although you are almost dead you do not stop hoping. In the last moments of your life you are determined to avenge. At first they seemed to be innocent but you have seen their unlimited cruelty. They have burned us all for their faith. It is not possible to forget. It is not possible to forgive anything. The circle is getting closed around you and you know that the time is short. The stamping of horse hoofs sets a mighty rhythm to your execution. Pain and cold increase your will to elude the claws of a self-righteous empire.
At first they seemed to be innocent but you now know their unlimited cruelty. It is not possible to forget! It is not possible to forgive!
5. Za svitu lůny... inkvizice
IN THE MOONSHINE… INQUISITION
I run away across lakes covered by ice. Heaven turns red by my wrath. A pack of hungry wolves is behind my back. Already long ago the hot blood disappeared from their fangs. The jaws have run light for some time. The lust for fresh meat grows stronger and stronger. I can feel the cold breath of those hungry creatures on my back. Am I their victim or savior?
The wolves do not lose the power although illness may pervade them. They are stronger. I feel my blood soaked in the snow and I feel my blood in the mouths of those hungry wolves.
6. Tam dole
The strange feeling of cold in the veins. With urgency for opening the last unlocked door, following my darkly shining light. Where will my last journey lead? I want to see gates burned by fire. All ice cliffs around and lava from the pits of hell. To be allowed to see what no other mortal has. My place is eternally where darkness and light come together, where blood of all battles and wars mix into one great glowing lake. Where every drop of blood burns out the sign of death into the book of the damned. I can fulfill my eternal dream there. I will become part of the shadow's kingdom. One of the messengers of mystery, eternity and hopelessness!
7. Odvrácená tvář Boha
THE GOD'S DARKENED FACE
Hanging Christ in all temples of emptiness. Nobody can prove the existence of god or hope for another sphere. Pray and let the destruction pass! Everything is sacrificed only to his memory. Death is seen as necessity, as the will of the lord! How can the redeemer's name be kept clean? By covering the tracks, by the pagan extermination. For warding off possible conspiracy; who will ever listen to the words of the damned? Did they discover the secrets of the church? Stakes burn over the world… and then it will be calm for another couple of centuries.
