Dimmu Borgir - The Serpentine Offering Lyrics

My descent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair
My descent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

Evoked and entertained through centuries
Wrathful and sullen - Dormant still

The ferocity pervades everywhere
Waiting to be released at last
Hear my offering
Ye bastard sons and daughters
Share my sacrifice
Share my sacrifice.

My descent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

Reconcile not with the fear of the snake
But embrace it as your own
Inject its venom into your veins
And replant the seed that gives growth
Still shrouded in mystery
Until you arise above perception
A veil of ignorance is in motion
Continuing throughout generations

(A veil of ignorance is in motion
Continuing throughout multiple generations
Let me be the one that deliver you from the deceit
And back into perfect accordance with the laws of nature)

The snake is notoriously tempting
But the snake is fair
What is worse than not knowing?
To live or disappear?

The ferocity pervades everywhere
Waiting to be released at last
Hear my offering
Ye bastard sons and daughters
Share my sacrifice
Share my sacrifice

    Vortex without makeup on, Looks like the kinda guy who would get a call from his friend saying "Hey can you help me move this couch"
    And he would be like "Sure! I'll bring pizza and a beer!"

  17. Troy Elhard

    I remember when this released. Hasnt gotten old

  18. John Case

    Back when 240p was seen as HD.

  19. Mike B

    People and their 240P comments, must be children that never knew of any music videos more than a couple years old.

    John Case

    I miss the days when this quality was normal and all you had to do to fix anything electronic was slap it.

  20. Raul urbina

    I born listening this song

  21. Humberto Mayoral

  39. Maicon Tadeu Laurenti

    Such a great music deserves a high quality video for an official version.

  40. Thomas Jones

    The battle will never end. Indeed it won't as long as religious death cults like Christianity, Islam, and Judaism exist. There will only be peace on earth when they are gone.

  41. xxxFF7xxxGIRLxxx

    Best quality I've ever seen in my entire life!!

    But this song is fucking epic so it makes up for it 🤘😝🤘

    I love this song👹👺💅

  51. Jaron Talotta

    I'm 26. Probably some years yet to go. But for years now, I think this has been "my song". I feel a certain ownership of its meaning. The entire album, and The Sacrilegious Scorn being a close 2nd.

  52. fitra Gaahl

  64. Valderi Sousa de Oliveira

    Deus e o diabo simbolizam a guérra.. nós a morte da vitória...

  65. Roque Art

    What I find funny about these bands is that there is no content to talk about their satan god.
    And keep showing and speaking the things of Christ. Looks like angry Christians. #Folkmetal forever.

  66. Fresher Dougie

    Who else saw this on Headbangers Ball back in the day?

  67. Samuel Aguiar

    Eu curtia esse som quando eu era mais novo.
