LETRA DRAGONS UPON THE MOUNTAINS OF MASHU
The Call of Cthulu)
Hounds of war.. Cthulu
invokes hordes of malice
Call to arms.. Herald of
mass legions of upheaval
Ia mass Ssaratu! Beyond the
swamps of wandering dead
Cthulu, master of the armies
of the ancient ones beckons
The gates are no longer barred,
locked and bolted! Keepers
of the gates hath been slain upon
scarlet swamps. Armies of the
ancient ones, dragons of the deep..
Gods of the seas..
Iak Kingu, Iak Azag
Iak Azabua, Iak Huwawa
Ishniggarab, Iak Xastur
Insurgence against Marduk
Dragons of the deep!
Forget not the fate of Absu. First
victim of elder discord who hath
been lain in empty space.
Once more Hubur arose,
she who fashions all things
Compiles matchless weapons
to the arsenal of ancient ones..
(The Foundation of Death)
Bar the gates
Renew its bars
Man the tower
Open the gate
The dead rise
Break its bars
Call to war!
Summoned are the demons of Hubur
Laying waste upon the temple of Marduk
The viper, the dragon, the winged demon
Bearing weapons of no fear, Kingu shepherds
You come to war Kingu!?
With baneful creation of Hubur
Then you shall fall upon blade
Speak lest you be silenced...
(Dusk of Eternity)
Armed with disc of power in
chariots of fire Marduk came
fourth. With a blazing flame he filled
his body. Dragons of the seas fell
upon the ground and all were slain.
Knower of the secret names,
shapes and numbers gazed upon
the form of Kingu.. With a curse
Kingu lashed upon the body of Marduk.
Striking with disc of power
Marduk blinded his eyes of death.
The monster heaved and raised its
back striking forth in all directions
with ancient words of power,
screaming ancient incantations.
Marduk struck once more and
blew an evil wind into its body,
filling the wicked beast as then
Marduk shot between its jaws
the charmed arrow of Enki and struck
once more, severing the head
of Kingu from its body...
The black seas swelling...
