[Verse 1]
At the edge of existence
Firm on ground, growing roots like swords
Speak the hidden words
Trailing karmic   death
Dark   ore of obscurity
Enrooted   from blood soil
Void-birthed from flesh of   gods
From the scorched abyss
Black veins branching through cosmic soil
The rotting edge ever closer
Chasing fire, the opening of the bones
Towards the subdivided levels
Detach disintegrating soul
Towards eternity and far away from time
Follow blackest beacon through the mist of man
It has always been here
Weaving into the fabric of flesh
Striding further into darkness
Roots so old, touching soul
[Chorus]
Striding the chasm
[Verse 2]
Upon black clouds of magic
Turn earth to flesh and sun to gold
Beyond underworld maelstrom
Hunger of the arcane hand of old
[Chorus]
Striding the chasm
Striding the chasm
[Verse 3]
Engulfed in slimy depth
Each step a myriad lifetimes
Tide turn against testimony
Possessed through rot in rapture
[Chorus]
Striding the chasm
Striding the chasm
[Post-Chorus]
Inverted as below
No trace of root above
I’m striding the chasm
Striding the chasm
[Verse 4]
Growing in the endless shadow of the soul
Dark pillars through Sephiroth passage
Gliding over gargantuan depths
Upon the rim of monolithic chasms
[Verse 5]
Bearer of the abhorrent mark
Engulfed in earth the pitch of tar
Channeling the ravens of death
Soul hunger of eternal shadows’ claw
Star of fire, melt my soul
[Refrain]
Striding the chasm
Like limbs of the soul
Striding the chasm
Darkest roots taking hold
[Instrumental Break]
[Refrain]
Striding the chasm
Like limbs of the soul
Striding the chasm
Darkest roots taking hold
[Verse 6]
The opening of the seventh gate
Phantasmagoria walk with death
Through the crooked spear of time
A widening rent of absolute nothingness
[Chorus]
Striding the chasm
[Verse 7]
I stand in mute testimony
Stone cold on the ritual arena
Soul built upon cromlechs of bone
To macabre depths, black root pillars of balance
[Chorus]
Striding the chasm
Striding the chasm
[Post-Chorus]
Inverted as below
No trace of root above
Take wing on hallowed soul
As I’m striding the chasm below
[Outro]
Growing in the endless shadow of the soul
Dark pillars through Sephiroth passage
Gliding over gargantuan depths
Upon the rim of monolithic chasms
