Last Rites – The Iron Tree lyrics
Hanging on the Iron Tree
Fat white worms devour me
Drowning in the Sea of Blood
Buried in the poisoned mud

I was taken to the South
Serpents came from my mouth
Dropped in the River of Fire
I heard the Angels' Choir

The darkness was dispersed
And I became immersed
In the glare of seven suns
Cherubim and Seraphim

I saw the Virgin Mary
She was weeping very bitterly
I asked her why are you weeping
Why did you come?

And the Holy Virgin said to me
I have come down here to see
The torments suffered by the Weak
By those who turned the Other Cheek

Ten Thousand Angels began to sing
A multitude of bells began to ring
The divine procession turned away
And took with them the light of day
