Awaken ruinous fiend of early generations.
Your rotting corpse is restored.
Straighten your limbs brush off the dust withered bandages restrain you no more.
Severed heads accent the gates bones emerge from the sands proof of your reign remains.
I your liege now command your rule again.
The sun burns through the skin boiling your vital organs within.
But the gods can't destroy my cursed blackened heart.
Appeasing the thirst of the damned mocking the praised ones.
The sand soaks the blood the blood flows like wine send death from above.
Locusts and famine engulfing your race my savagery knows no end.
At the price of all your lives I destroy your kind death by my hand.
Sands blowing across cursed lands will consume the evidence of your ancient existence.
The Earth is now black from the torment I have set upon it.
All shall bow serve and praise thy name.

    Its not about the biblical plagues but the reign of Akhenaten the Heretic Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt in which he cast out the god Amun and its temples from Egyptian theocracy, creating his own religion of Aten in its wake. This was the equivalent of the President of USA denouncing Christianity for Satanism and relocating the White House to Hawaii. The plagues can be associated here as it was a huge turning point in Egyptian ruling, causing massive disarray, upheaval, political corruption and of course famine in its wake. In short, Egyptians blamed Akhenaten for the eventual downfall of Egypts 4000 year dynasty.
