Isis - In The Absence Of Truth lyrics


01. Wrists Of Kings

Now our blood
Travels though the
Veins of our

It bursts forth them
Boiling black
Clouds from the wrists of kings

The shadow
Lengthens as
Time draws on its tendrils

Creep into mythic cracks
Blending with the light of day

We see it
Now Before us
But even so we cannot
Read the lies between the lines

Bring them nothing
They have
Made it's way
The nights

02. Not In Rivers, But In Drops

And still your voice is heard

And still we are shaken

Your voice... Still here

And so you say unto all
"I am all, we are one
Go forth and bring them down"

War is waged, blood is spilled
Not in rivers, but in drops

Heaven's gate is in my hand
The key is your acceptance

03. Dulcinea

He is not mad
His thought is clearer than
The saner man

For in her he saw
Beauty overflowing
Through the tattered clothes

She was his queen
She is a queen

In dreams he
Wanders the dark
In search of her

04. Over Root And Thorn

Your reign is ever growing
Spreading like a moss

Across rock, under sky, over roots and the thorns
Your reach is ever growing, spreading like a moss

05. 1000 Shards

If only I could
Clear my eyes
Then I might breathe once more
Then I might breathe again

Old sun and stars,
And oceans below me
Gathered scribes over
Jagged shards, under foot

Old sun and stars,
And oceans below me
Gathered scribes over
Jagged shards, under foot

To slash to the sound
How many sit on woe or peril?
How many walk on their own?

Into the truth
Let myself burn
Now it's written
1000 shards

06. All Out Of Time, All Into Space


07. Holy Tears

He was patient
Slow descent, chills the bones
His wait maybe long
Still he carries on
Always reaching for her
Always breathing for her
Lifting his hand to the sky
Slow change might bring
Holy tears
Upon his battered skull

Holy tears
Holy tears

Her form transformed, from ash to golden throne

08. Firdous E Bareen


09. Garden Of Light

I fell asleep in a world dressed in grey
Only to awake in a garden divine
There was song and dance and untarnished flesh
A feast for the body and eyes
It was you who brought me here
Yours, whose face greeted me, in the garden of light
You are the face of god
You are my breath
My life, my death
