FIRESTORM THE POET, 2010

 

Husky’s name is Tarkus, (evidently)

Bitches Crystal (3rd Track on Tarkus)
Bitches Crystal
Knows how you
Twist all the lines

Fortune Teller
Future Seller
Of time

Tortured spirits cry
Fear is in their eyes
Ghostly images die

Witches Potion
Mixed in the ocean
Of tears

Mystical Powers
Emerge From the towers
Of fear

Tortured spirits cry
Fear is in their eyes
Ghostly images die

Evil learning
People burning
Savage casting
No one lasting

Witchcraft
Sadness
Madness
Turning in their minds

Ritual killings
That swear in
The shillings to be

Heretic Priestess
Dwells on the
Weakness she sees
Tortured spirits cry
Ghostly images die

Yet another fucking mastiff named fucking Tarkus.

Same Tarkus, winning in general.
