lyrics

Mysterium, tremendum et fascinans

Grovel before our prophet, out of fear
Beseech, false idols out of hope they’ll hear
Fall, in reverence at the image of god
But know, that in our faith lies a cost

Though, fallow the thought, or shallow the cause
Ethereal, power is wrought as false humility
A turgid divinity and fell conscience, all under a faith-threaded cowl
For in the throes of passion, or in pain
While the sparks traverse the pathways in our brains
All remains the same

Martyrs and miscreants all clamour as our messiahs arise
Mewling we crawl, in abject sacrifice

Mysterium, tremendum et fascinans

Grovel before our prophet, out of fear
Beseech, false idols out of hope they’ll hear
Fall, in reverence at the image of god
But know, that in our faith lies a cost

Martyrs and miscreants all clamour as our messiahs arise
For, we shall never again see God
Unless in abject sacrifice
