The Gates Of Slumber – Descent Into Madness lyrics

We will plunge into this dark city
Fallen masonry all around
Gave upon the statues of the Old Ones
What we men of science have found
On the eve of dawn at the end of the world
Where souls are cold and should never fly
We witnessed the one true unholy terror
The city of the damned reached forever high
Beneath the world, blood cold ice
On pale white earth, descent into madness
The darkness set beyond the horizon
Pillars that reached straight to hell
We saw pure evil in this pre-human age
By alchemy, blood and thunder we fell
What lays beyond, blood and ice
Blasphemous city, descent into madness
Descent, descent, descent into madness
Descent, descent, descent into madness
At the mountains of madness, you will descend into hell
At the mountains of madness, you will forever dwell
