Song lyrics[edit]

I am the antichrist
It's what I was meant to be
Your god left me behind
And set my soul to be free

    Rising new souls on the lands where they fell

    Nothing to see where the sleeping souls lie
    Chemical warfare

    The gates of pearl have turned to gold
    It seems you've lost your way

Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood!
