To rule his armies from to hell to high castle.
He created a beast
A demon so strong
He named him Eligos
With his staff that’s three pronged.
His existence was clear, his meaning was known
To wreak havoc on man and make them his own.

He took it from Eden, a garden so tidy.
He rode this steed with pride and smite

He ended his enemies all while they were cowering.
He could not be stopped, he could not be killed
