Track Name: Malediction (Thee Opening ov Thee Mouth)
The Opening of Thee Mouth

The magician shall prepare a dagger consecrated in fire and blood, in the name of Ninnghizhidda, and he shall shed his own blood. As his veins open his blood which is his life opens the gateways between flesh and soul, and the gateways between substance and void. Thus shall he spill his blood on the mark of the serpent and call forth:
Ninnghizhidda, horned serpent of the deep, watcher of the gates I invoke.
Open the gate that I may enter!
Open thy mouth and devour the light! Great Serpent, Stellarvore, awaken!
In the name of our father, ENKI, master of magicians, open thy gates so that I may enter!
Open lest we attack the gates!
Open lest we break down is bars!
Open lest we lay siege to the walls!

Then Thee Magus shall Take the consecrated sword and make widdershins, and cleave downwards the sign of the fivefold star

Open the gate lest I cause the dead to rise and devour the living!
Open the gates, lest I give the dead over the power of the living!
Open the gates lest I make the dead outnumber the living!

Then shall thee magus break the middle finger from an ancient corpse, dessicated by weathered years and crush it to dust then muddle it to powder with salt of the black sea and sulfur and cast thee mixture unto the howling winds and repeat:

Ninnghizhidda, spirit of the deep, watcher of the gates, Open!
It is not I, but MARDUK who commands it, and my name by calling is AGAKU!
Open thy gates by the power of the word MASHGARZANNA!
Open thy gates!
May the dead rise and smell the incense!
Spirits of the earth remember!
Spirits of the skies remember!
Zi dingir kia kanpa!
Zi dinger anna kanpa!
