Furies from hell are diving down, Drums out of the darkness, listen well.
"Lex Talionis" is their cry. Drums beating like thunder, straight from hell.
Even though tricksters make the law, "Rege Satanas" , the time comes round,
justice is served by fang and claw. Satan is here to claim his ground.
With their beaks of steel, see them slash askew With our morning star from the deepest night,
righteous Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Jew. smash the crumbling cross, for might is right.
They ve become a plague so let s start anew. Let the shuffling zombies grope for light
We don t need them anymore! and we'll reign forever more!
