Cleansing the records of their murderous fee,
drowning deep within the stygian sea.
Centuries of sinners decaying in a watery grave,
polluting the waves with their miserable crime.
The immense pressure sought to rejuvenate and enslave,
to suffocate them in their own thickening grime.
A sea tainted with the remains of the unholy,
rising to drown the world slowly.
Deformed creatures drift through the acidic tide,
a cesspool of despair, the sacrilegious cried.
The stygian sea was dyed with sinful blood,
a bleak world submerged in the onyx flood.
The bitter waves of the stygian sea lulls demons to sleep,
searching for dirty souls to smother and reap.
