In this night
I walk among the dead
In my rotting carrion gown
I am one with them

Envy the dead

Life disgusts me
Beauty lies in death
Sickness and disease
In putridity

Only deceased flesh
Smell of sweet decay
Gives pleasure to me

I envy the dead
I envy the dead, my twisted deviation

I love to play a morbid game
I dress in skins and cold remains
Lay me in an open grave
Among the dead I feel alive

Death’s beauty, death’s purity drives me into ecstasy

Envy the dead

But I am not alone in this mortuary
An obscure presence is watching me
Timeless being from beyond this age
Slumbered in this bed of worm-infested flesh

Ghoulish creature fed by decay
From forbidden dimensions of putridity

Exsanguinous life fades away
Nothing remains but awful pain
Maggots feast upon my flesh
No beauty is left

Ghoulish creature fed by decay
Its grin is gone, its skin turned pale
The mirror lies shattered to the ground
Nothing more will be found

No blood of Christ safes my day
With the break of dawn I pass away
No joy, no light, just nothingness
From now on I’m really one with death

No envy for the dead is left
