At The Mountains Of Madness - Lyrics by Orphanage

...the lavas that restlessly roll
Their sulphurous currents down Yaanek
In the ultimate climes of the pole
That groan as they roll down Mount Yaanek
In the realms of the boreal pole...it's been not so long I accidently soldmy former frame of reference to the coldthinking back, remembering, my tale seems so unreal
I'm closed up but the time has come to revealanxious, also ignorant, my investigative mindhad led me there and led me to be so blindhaunted are the mountains, I plead for your restraintor hope for men's survival will be faintall my days are nightmares and memories haunt my brainmy former mind of knowledge has gone insaneyou'll never hear this twice ëcause once I had seenthe sheen that filled the sky soon I'd die the mounts drew the boundsand I climbed one step too high soon I'd diethe cold that had enwrapped my heart is bound to freeze my eyesthe truth that seemed on our side had covered all with liestake off my hands, take off my feet take off my ears,rip out my tongue but don't hurt my mind, don't hurt my sensedon't hurt my intellectual powerswhat is frozen you don't feel, what hurts is what you losebut at this moment I gave up, the ice had blown my fusemade out of cold, made out of fear God's will attracts,
God; s will is hereall had begun, when led by fear, right at the end of the worldhigh in the sky, here at the end of the world
