The Key

from by Id



"The lord of dreams makes preparations to visit the realms infernal
yet in Hell, the adversary makes certain preparations of his own"
welcome to hell, oh lord of dreams
and by the way, I give up the throne. I'm bored. I'm done
now, cut off my wings
cutting off the wings from the first among the fallen angels
he hands me the key that locks his fortress full of masochists
desolate landscapes of tortured souls and fiery river flow
what am I to do with this key and this realm of pains unknown
call on the pantheon of gods
palace of dreams is where we'll meet
who I see fit will get the key
and in Hell reign supreme
a strange disposition of a knife and a key has fallen into the lap of the dream king
too busy to rule in Hell, too spiteful to care
at his hands a decision: choose Morningstar's heir
Odin is present, Anubis, and Bast
and princes from Hell that demand back their lands
some offer their riches, or blackmail, or sisters
but Ramiel and Duma the dream lord's eye catch
and empty Hell now has its leaders
God's most faithful angels now have their reign
for Hell is heaven's shadow and so the balance is kept
Ramiel and Duma welcome back the eternal dead
the end of an age, the turning of a page
