about

Though the title of this song comes from an H.P Lovecraft story the lyrics are only loosely based on the content itself. This song is another self contained horror story focused on an individual set to bring about the world's demise through enacting the will of Cthulhu. Much like Lovecraft I chose the title because I "liked then ring of it", to quote the man himself.

lyrics

I rode to flee the scene
Burning bodies, burning trees
Children bleeding on the ground
Breathe the smoke and breathe the clouds

I am the figure that you glimpse in the dead of night
I am the nightmare that lurks in your dreams
I am the terror that they warned you about
I am the bringer of darkness

The crawling chaos stretches across the land
Behold my countenance, I am Cthulhu's hand

My name is of no import
My body is a rotting corpse
My eyes see only death
My mind is a wretched mess
My soul has long burnt away
His voice is all I obey
His will my soul's desire
Keep the fire growing higher

I am the figure that you glimpse in the dead of night
I am the nightmare that lurks in your dreams
I am the terror that they warned you about
I am the bringer of darkness

The crawling chaos stretches across the land
Behold my countenance, I am Cthulhu's hand

Day of judgement's near
Now you know who you must fear
A writhing, shapeless deity
To feed on you is all he needs
Facing your deepest fears
An ocean rises up to clear
Away all the filth and scum
End of the world comes

I am the figure that you glimpse in the dead of night
I am the nightmare that lurks in your dreams
I am the terror that they warned you about
I am the bringer of darkness

The crawling chaos stretches across the land
Behold my countenance, I am Cthulhu's hand
