lyrics

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
