Behemoth - Inner Sanctum Lyrics




[Background Lead: Nergal]

Split my skin, fuck my wounds
Desecrate the Inner Sanctum in which I hide
Drag me through the mud, blind my whitening eyes
That I may see darkness in the tunnels ov light

Pain I cannot deny
As I rot in this empty shell
Swamped in disaffection
Introducing to my newborn hell

Be it not so!
Thou shall see me not in agony
Failure was and is no option
'Tis my undying self
The ever wandering son ov the morn
Abandoned, yet never to be conquered

I never mourn, I never look back as long as Thy phosphoric rays
Grant me more pleasure than pain
I, who is evil can receive no good
Though I still crave, I'm yearning for
Thy healing touch ov grace...

Pain is timeless
When I question the laws ov god
Drowned in everlasting confusion
Caress my hate against the mob

Be it not so!
Thou shall see me not in agony
Failure was and is no option
'Tis my undying self
The ever wandering son ov the morn
Abandoned, yet never to be conquered
The opponent!
My life's work is complete...

  50. Akshit Jha

    My first Behemoth song back when I started listening to them 4 years ago. Nostalgia.

  51. Black Metal

    What if Meshuggah and Behemoth made a song together?

    PsionicMindFck

    Beshuggahmoth? that would be epic as fuck

    Stewie Pid

    It would be like two super-massive black holes caught in each of the others' event horizon and we mere mortals would be spaghetti-fied with sound waves and plunged at light speed into the singularity where we would claw at the vacuous, non-existent dark while being annihilated and re-born among utter, hellish chaos. Oh and there would be plenty of T-Shirts too.

  52. Spüre Das Feuer

    I supposed I heard Nevermore! Yes ,It is, Nevermore the band!

  60. Nazgul 66-sic

    I just jizzed on the roof. now to jizz off the roof! Hail Behemoth and RIP Nevermore!

  61. Nekristus

    For anyone wondering what the meaning of this video is, here is my deciphering of the symbolism hidden inside it:
    The video presents a man who lives his life isolated, devoid of hope, with his wife deceased, and everything around him being meaningless and mundane. Apparently, when he visits the school, he is about to reach for the pen (representation of knowlede and dispute) but he is reluctanτ. Nevertheless, facing the nothingness wherein he dwells and the iniquitous death of his wife, doubt pierce him sharp and pungent (as witnessed in the scene where the pen hit the floor) thus he decides to look for answers in the house of god. Upon his arrival he finds the church to be empty...
    The purpose of the video is to demonstrate how people often need false idols to beseech when life becomes strenuous. Also, there is an acute symbolism refering to the Apocalypse riders. Nergal being Death (Priest), Inferno being Pestilence (The well of water), Orion being War (Blacksmith) and Seth being Hunger (The crop farmer). The apocalypse theme refers to the end of an era, as in the end of protagonist's false Illusions and his departure from christian beliefs.

    Michael Pace

    its just a reiteration of cain and abel...

    Victor Hugo

    And Inner Sanctum because the answers are within ourselves...

    justin tyrone

    Could the pen hitting the floor be a superstition?

    obzenFTP

    I like how you typed reluctanτ

    Александр Пичугов

    So many sacral problem with Christianity))...just look at it like on list of rules, system of morality

  62. Naamah _

    louuuuuurd

  63. Jakub Zdzienicki

    The part that starts at 3:19 is incredible

  64. Oscar Darski

    Shemhamforash.

  65. The Borax Kid

    Fuck whenever I hear Behemoth I wanna start kicking shit.

    Snikmorder S

    You can kick yourself

    The Borax Kid

    I work for a dog trainer. When it's my turn to clean the yard, I turn on Behemoth and start kicking shit around.

  66. Voodoochild from Hell

    this song is a beast. pure awesomeness \m/Ò_Ó\m/

  67. Neoember OwO

    That piano at the beginning kinda sounded like the illuminati song

  68. Spirit Crusher

    shame They never perform it on stage :/

  69. LOVECRAFT MUSIC

    this could be a good song if it weren't for the vocals

    LOVECRAFT MUSIC

    +samsquantch14 get a life loser

    Robindo George

    Fuck off trey!! i'll beat you black and grey!

    funny-hippo

    which ones?

    Nazgul 66-sic

    Nevermore is a great band! this is perfect as is.

    Jared Morse

    Jeff Loomis is really all I like from Nevermore. I feel the vocals ruined that as well.

  70. ДИМАС ЗАЙЦЕВ

  73. Kenspiracy Videos

    BEHEMORE? NEVERMOTH? WHAT IS THIS?

    Guilherme Juquênzio

    Kenspiracy Videos - DeadZone Media behedane or warremoth

    Guilherme Juquênzio

    Kenspiracy Videos - DeadZone Media beherrel or danoth

  74. Crusher of Libs

    That sounds like Nevermore's lead singer at the beginning before Nergal comes in.

    Crusher of Libs

    +WebbyWebs Ok, it is, obviously.  Commenting before reading other comments FTL.

    Guilherme Juquênzio

    Crusher of Libs it is nevermore's lead singer

  75. Vlad Dracul

    back to black

  76. kk kkk

    this video is deep

  77. Jon K

    Look, I've commented on quite a few of Behemoth's videos, this this one is just so.... Bad-Ass! A kick-in-the-head, cold-shower, slap-in-the-face, groin-punch kinda jam... right?

  78. evilbug555to666

    darkest intro I have ever heard...paints your petty hollow soul BLACK....mind bending drumrolls...

    Jesus Christ

    what soul?

  79. Mortuus Sum

    Truly a masterpiece. Warrel Dane is an awesome addition...... he should do a song with Behemoth again in the future!

  80. Unknown Materia

    Beast Riffs

  81. Archit Bhardwaj

    BE IT NOT SO!!
    THOU SHALL SEE ME NOT IN AGONY!!!
    mY FAVORITE FUCKING SONG EVER!! \m/

    Roffbist

    +Archit Bhardwaj 4th place for me.

  82. Ryan Corey

    the solo in this song is something else man

    Jason Argonaut

    right in the feels

    Joel’s Lennyism

    Not very good in my opinion. Their licks have definitely improved though. The solo in Messe is a work of art.

    Berk Budak

    Joel Diaz agreed Messe's solo probably their best solo

  83. Puran Pagol

    so fucking powerful

  84. Actus Purus

    2nd vocal Shagrath? (Dimmu Borgir)

  85. Roos Donkersloot

    this a great song and my favorite of behemoth

  86. DamnationEternal

    I think Warrel Dane(guest vocalist) sounds like Jack Black on this track and it bothers me slightly.

  87. kmt 010

    I used to love this song, glad i rediscovered it! Still great.

  88. Timothy Connett

    I love it

  89. ikiwyu

    THAT SOLO! I never want it to end!

  90. Banshee Prime

    I hate these Pollish assholes they stole Behemoth from Heroes of Newerth.

  91. nvm0

    call me weird but the intro with the piano and the black and white land seems like a beginning of an old black and white horror movie from the (late) 60's. I love it

    Caleb Kendrick

    +nvm0 You really just said call me weird on a behemoth video? hahaha No worries here.

    Tyler Bennett

    Yeah, no worries man. haha

    Kenspiracy Videos

    +nvm0 Black and White land is referring to the checkered floor, or Malkut, or just Earth and base consciousness. The floor from which the initiate begins his climb. Its a magickal/masonic reference.

    David Daniel

    Leszek mozder is a genius

  92. vlad drac

    Behemoth featuring Dave Mustaine on vocals

    vlad drac

    @***** You must be fun at parties, my friend.

    funny-hippo

    i want this collab to happen so bad lol...mainly just to see nergal and dave arguing non-stop over the lyrical content of the song.

  93. rex in hell

    słabe i denne już  venom lepiej się stara z polskich facetów metalu jedynie KAT a reszta się podczepiła takie papustwo to szopka 

  94. Clint Smith

    Satan's house band!!

  95. Yami Wesker

    Orion 1:16 ... OMG!

  96. 0xoButterflyox0

    Definitely a favorite

  97. Krzyszof Olivier

    I love it is fucking epic!!!!

  98. zaklanosrceVEVO

    This is gay beyond words,if you want to hear real metal listen to Motionless in White .

    artemorbid

    Motionless In White is commercial garbage- Invalid comparison.

    Raul Ocampo

    lol i dont give a shit, why did u not answer to all others? troll the fuck outta here

    Niels Rasenberg

    @Raul Ocampo i hope your trolling

    Chen Ling

    @zaklanosrceVEVO His grammar actually is correct but not the spelling. You missed the point

    funny-hippo

    holy fuck i can't believe no one here understands sarcasm or the concept of trolling.

  99. Александр Селиверстов

    Отлично!
