The lyrics below are printed in the booklet, but don't appear in the song:

Tumble you cedars! Owls begone; beaks, tear the fabric of the night to sparks!
Moles, spit the soil, crimes' beaks destroy –
O ermine, maculate – invert the starry firmament of Night!
Split graves apart – quick! & suck nouriture from Death, sack cities & upraise their slain!
– Awake! Awake!
Let banners fly like shrapnel, & efface the sky!
