This song is by Benediction and appears on the album Grind Bastard (1998).

Follow the bleeder, undamned you decry
Consummate spirits never allow the lie
Open your heart towards that your mind feels
Death is to conquer all that is surreal

Fortune's enlightenment, hopeful rays of light
Dramatic abundance, shattering the night
Grow biting conflict, halted to an end
The future is certain, the hope we defend, defend


Up holding the righteous, onward march begun
Deftly remolding a darkened vision
Strength within unity, mind linking mind
Enveloping beauty, the next humankind

The filth that we all have to climb through
The filth we have to take
Suffering it evermore, irenicon, the wake

My soul doth magnify
My spirit has rejoiced
Remembrance of mercy
To his seed forever

Yet they lead us to the slaughter
Like they lead a horse to water
They can't force us to drink but we do

Magnificat throned

So teach us to number our days that we may
Push hearts towards wisdom and fade off the gray
Interventions looming on our dawning world
Hope springs eternal, a hope now unfurled, unfurled
