Inspired by George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, and the tv series Game of Thrones, in particular the mysterious cult of assassins known as the Faceless Men, who worship Death.


Valar morghulis / death will come for all
No craft, no artifice / can stop the destined pall

Death brings deliverance / mercy to the slave
It restores the balance / no masters in the grave

The faceless men / their names forsaken
a chthonic cult of assassins / devoted to death's transformation

Valar dohaeris / serve the many-faced god
Killing as catharsis / worshipping through blood

Bestow the gift of death / a fatal sacrament
To expel one's breath / is benevolent

repeat verse

Valar morghulis / All men must die
Valar dohaeris / All men must serve

Every death, every cut / every welling of blood
is an act of worship / to Him of Many Faces

Only death can pay for life.
