They descended from above to instill unbridled fear,
chaos and worship led to the miserable frontier.
A city unseen bows to the ancient race,
in hopes that they will be taken from this horrible place.
Beneath the ruins of the blood-soaked palace,
a kingdom of riches ushered by the chalice.
Sacrifices are made with the roll of the dice,
carving the path towards a sadistic paradise.
A city of dreams crafted from corpses,
unworthy vessels consumed by rigor mortis.
The great moon hatches an egg of calamity,
a false society brought upon narrow amity.
An infinite cycle of corrupted layers,
polluted with the idolization of tainted prayers.
