Draconic blood, the power to shed the fragile mortal shape And assume one of fire and rage To veer from weak flesh to hard scale and cruel teeth and claws Vast avatar of destruction and suffering Or more strength still, the full dragon, born without mortal impurity But power exists beyond the draconic, A hatred beyond the vast winged Eleint Dragons, slain, crucified, draconic blood spilled Chained, impaled, stricken down Draconic blood, tainted by death, superior no more Draconic impalement, draconic destruction, draconic annihilation

The brutal will of the gods is opposed By the terrified children who worship another, or nothing Enforcement of divine will requires a terrible power Matched with the willingness to defend the empyrean, Both in desire and in flesh Strength and speed are the wrath of the sword, The means to mete out the justice of the holy Opposition is as nothing to the bearer of the gift And the need to obey is made acceptable By the pain its gift lets them wield
4.
Terrible figure in furs, bedecked by fetishes of flesh and Bearer of the terrified souls of the damned, His victims dragged behind him to scream forever in chains Warleader, barbarian, vicious giant, slicing through the land Lead us, warleader, into glory, and to death Slay the children, their parents, and laugh as they beg to live Thelomen Toblakai conqueror, blazing glory, killing the weak Culling the offensive, hunting the powerful for the joy of battle Warleader, barbarian, vicious giant, slicing through the land Lead us, warleader, into glory, and to death The ultimate killer, the perfect warrior Immune to sorcery, unburdened by guilty Unbroken, unbowed, chained but still free Lead us, Warleader, into glory
5.
Darkness envelops an endless time, an Elder Night With fingers of blackness reaching from a breath of chaos Children take from Mother Dark, to give to themselves the power of ages Twisted warren, reflection of the High House, but bright enough to give false shine A gray sky gives a veneer of light to the darkness that dwells within Burning minds in graven forms that dance in the warren Through the trail the wanderer travels, consciousness bent out of shape Driven mad, driven through dark paths, driven away Through a warren of shadow

Decay is the inevitable coil which unwinds alongside time itself A vast serpent encircling the march of progress, Pulling apart the strands of existence to revert all that is to nothingness The pall that shrouds the hope of man, the worm that rules the night D’rek! D’rek! Our eyes our open, our souls mean nothing. Caverns moan to the truth of the dark winds Weary blood is shed to feed the earth, and to fill the body of the worm None shall return from the journey of death, the journey of rot Putrid goddess, queen of disease D’rek! D’rek! Bless our eyes, for they are open! Bless our eyes, for they see!
8.
A howling wind, cacophonous The endless screaming of eternal shifting sands Rage of the elder, wrath of the desert A rending given form by the hatred of the goddess
9.
Tearing into flesh, the hunger a satiation of the most primal of urges Survival refined by exalted cruelty Cruelty raised to religion, to mothers rearing the children of the damned Flesh of the father, to feed the mother bearing the son
10.
The flesh is a prison, a singular confinement With power it needs not bind, with blood that screams within Veering from these weak two legs into Shining claws, pointed teeth, ridged spines The form of the dragon is where the power of the soul resides The power of the blood that sings within, finally released to sunder Soletaken, unbound, skin eater, shape shifter Dominance is the nature of the being that controls his shape And tyranny is the justice brought by dominance Power is control, and to resist the flesh is to rule it
