Welcome, star-born royal sister --
To the nether-world of gloom
Where all is death and dissolution
And the silence of the tomb.
I am Mot, the Lord of Darkness;
It is I who slew thy mate --
And I charge one final payment
Before I close and seal thy fate!
ASTARTE MOVES closer to MOT as she speaks ...
ASTARTE: Seven veils I left behind me --
At the gates through which I passed;
Seven treasures given dearly --
ASTARTE DRAWS a black veil over his head.
For my hidden veil is darkness;
Where the final secrets lie.
In thy pride thou hast forgotten --
Even Death must surely die!
