Joy From The Deep

about

A message of holiday cheer about the dread Cthulhu's rise from the depths to rule through insanity and terror, his reign terrible to behold, but lovely to listen to.

Ia Ia Cthulhu, everyone! Enjoy the season!

lyrics

Joy from the deep
Cthulhu’s come:
Let earth abhor this thing.
Let ev’ry mind prepare for doom,
As anguish and woe he’ll bring (As anguish and woe he’ll bring)
As anguish and woe he’ll bring (As anguish and woe he’ll bring)
As anguish, as anguish and woe he’ll bring

Up from the sea
R’lyeh did rise.
The cultists awestruck dumb.
With ancient rites so wretched and perverse
Cthulhu’s time is come (Cthulhu’s time is come)
Cthulhu’s time is come (Cthulhu’s time is come)
Cthulhu’s, Cthulhu’s time has come.

Joy from the deep
Cthulhu reigns.
The Great Old Ones destroy
With wrath and doom so cruel and foul
Replete with obscene joy (Replete with obscene joy)
Replete with obscene joy (Replete with obscene joy)
Replete, replete with obscene joy

He rules the world with dreadful might,
And through our ghastly dreams
His twisting turning tentacles elicit from us madden’d screams
Cthulhu’s time is come (Cthulhu’s time is come)
Cthulhu’s time is come (????????)
Cthulhu’s, Cthulhu’s time is come!
