Clouds pass over the moon
Like an eye that shows impending doom
 Tension in this misty air
 Souls pass into the room
 Drawn in by a lost memory 
You will join them in the moonlight 

You are my offering 
Your soul transcends 
The centuries of pain
Your misery in life
Is your ecstasy in death 

Time passes like the wind
As we race to beat days dusky grin
 Mornings just a moment away
Your body glistens in candlelight 
As we all look on in fiendish delight
The ritual is just beginning 

Come fulfill the prophecy 
With our demons of debauchery 
As virgins and spectres sing
This madness will never cease 

In the dead of night 
You will follow 
In the footsteps of many others 
Who have come before 
I will show you the altar 
Your Aztec eyes, Egyptian hair
Your beauty bestoved upon my lair
I´ve loved you before, in other lives
But you´ve never meant as much to me
 Never meant as much to me as now 

In this night of sacrifice  where blood is spilt 
That will never spill again 
But in your linen robes
We want you now
We want you now
You could never ask for more than that 

You are my offering 
Your soul transcends 
The centuries of pain
Your misery in life
Is your ecstasy in
Come fulfill the prophecy 
With our demons of debauchery 
This madness will never cease
