Blood of the Temple




Originally from the album "Blessing in the Skies", currently on the vinyl re-release "Blessing in the Skies (and other cuts from the chamber)" as well as various other re-releases


Long ago, in a fool's paradise
They lived not by the word, then they gave sacrifice
Their idol worship, desecrated the law
Thus they were delivered, into the vulture's claw

They were given all the signs, but still ignored their obvious crime
They rejected the Father and the Son, so the chosen ones

We are all the blood (of the temple), where evil abides
The blood (of the temple), where death is sanctified

They were given the prophets, but heeded not their word
Time and again they were smitten, the price their evil incurred
They would pray for deliverance, citing tablets of stone
Because the blood quenched not their thirst, reaping what they had sewn

We look at them in their ignorance, and we scoff at their ways
But look all around you, and you'll see that today

We are all the blood (of the temple), no where left for you to hide
The blood (of the temple), the droplets ooze from your arrogant pride

For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations
And his fury upon all their armies
He hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter
Their slain also shall be cast out
And the stink shall come up upon their carcasses
And the mountains shall be melted with their blood
For low my sword is bathed in heaven
Behold it comes down upon Idume'a, and upon the people of my curse to judgment, the sword of the lord is filled with blood

We are all the blood (of the temple), no where left for you to hide
We're the blood, shed the blood
