"Tonatzin Summoning the Rain God"

Alone she walks through empty temples with seven serpentine shadows,
Through fiery skies and across infertile grounds that are drunk with blood,
Awaits the night, as her serpents hiss and her crystals gleam through the dark descending,
Her yearning burst to flame, yelling out his name...

"Tlaloc! let this stained land be washed,
Ruined paradise, the saints are bewildered!
Let the rivers flow tonight!"
"Tlaloc! My brother! let their beliefs fall ablaze
Wasted sacrifice, the bloods of ancients
Forever reflected in the skies"...

Let it befall, that the goddess of earth and the god of rain
free the slaves... "My fire and your rain shall baptize their shallow graves...
Let it be done, that hades be drowned for it's greed and it's longing for death and the gifts of decay..."
