  • LYRICS
  • Messenger of Fear in sight
     Dark deception kills the light

     Hybrid children watch the sea
     Pray for Father, roaming free

     fearless Wretch
     insanity
     He watches
     lurking beneath the sea
     great Old One
     forbidden site
     He searches
     Hunter of the Shadows is rising
     immortal
     in madness You dwell

     Crawling Chaos, underground
     cult has summoned, twisted sound

     Out from ruins once possessed
     fallen city, living death

     fearless Wretch
     insanity
     He watches
     lurking beneath the sea
     timeless sleep
     has been upset
     He awakens
     Hunter of the Shadows is rising
     immortal
     in madness You dwell
     Not dead which eternal lie
     stranger eons Death may die

     drain you of your sanity
     face The Thing That Should Not Be

     fearless Wretch
     insanity
     He watches
     lurking beneath the sea
     timeless sleep
     has been upset
     He awakens
     Hunter of the Shadows is rising
     immortal
     in madness You dwell
