Codex Gigas 05:37
Blessed robes Signs of sanctity Oppressive God Another pawn of the clergy Devoted life In hope of an afterlife Remain in line Don't sigh, swallow your pride You are feeling doubt Inside your crying out Upon you feel their stare Bow down your head in prayer Day by day Hands held vertically No excuse to stray from praise Until your final days Sentenced to death for the God you betray Locked away till the suns first ray Join the damned in purgatory Make a pact with the devil to restore your glory The task bestowed Is impossible With quill in hand Scribe away against the falling sands Lord of flies Embraces you Too afraid to die For your fate is now entwined Lone scribe writes away into a new day Unsurpassed his speed and knowledge displayed Throughout centuries it remains a mystery Science cannot explain conception of the codex gigas Revealed at dawn to meet faces of disbelief In awe of a new manuscript that was impossible to achieve All human knowledge he scribed the devil's ink Today a life is saved but his soul is cast away Sentenced to death for the God you betray Locked away till the suns first ray Join the damned in purgatory Make a pact with the devil to restore your glory The task bestowed Is impossible With quill in hand Scribe away against the falling sands Lord of flies Embraces you Too afraid to die For your fate is now entwined Lone scribe writes away into a new day Unsurpassed his speed and knowledge displayed Throughout centuries it remains a mystery Science cannot explain conception of the codex gigas (Codex gigas) Oh this cursed text Will outlive his final breath Trading hands through greed Holy text of deceit On the first opening page Calling card from behind hells gates With his help you conceive codex gigas
