Behemoth

version 4:
from 365 Eulogies (March 26th 2012) (6:08)
Out from below, like a flood the evil shadows flow
Earthquakes began as the monster walked onto dry land

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Cloaked by a shield, only to my eyes is it revealed
Come just for me, come to kill me oh so silently

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Born of the flame, in the end just it and I remain
Formless and free, chasing phantoms floating randomly

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Pushed down below like a flood the searing venom flows
Rainbow of gray, it pursues me to my dying day

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

version 3:
from Hymnal Apocrypha (December 4th 2008) (6:04)
Out from below, like a flood the evil shadows flow
Earthquakes began as the monster walked onto dry land

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Cloaked by a shield, only to my eyes is it revealed
Come just for me, come to kill me oh so silently

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Born of the flame, in the end just it and I remain
Formless and free, chasing phantoms floating randomly

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Pushed down below like a flood the searing venom flows
Rainbow of gray, it pursues me to my dying day

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

from Yellow Light District (October 15th 2003) (5:41)
Out from below, like a flood the evil shadows flow
Earthquakes began as the monster walked onto dry land

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Born of the flame, in the end just it and I remain
Formless and free, chasing phantoms floating randomly

I can see away
I could walk away
I could drift away
I could die today

Cloaked by a shield, only to my eyes is it revealed
Come just for me, come to kill me oh so silently

Pushed down below like a flood the searing venom flows
Rainbow of gray, it pursues me to my dying day

I could drift away
I could die today

Cloaked by a shield, only to my eyes is it revealed
Come just for me, come to kill me oh so silently

Born of the flame, in the end just it and I remain
