Green Carnation - Journey To The End Of The Night lyrics


01. Falling Into Darkness

Music by X Botteri & Tchort

02. In The Realm Of The Midnight Sun

Music by X Botteri & Tchort
Lyrics by Tchort
Black lights, shattered dreams, broken hope
Shadows over my pale face
Around the storm once again rage
And the wind blow hard and cold while the northern light dances its sad dance

Moons throws its freezing light, and warm my frozen soul…
World have casted me and pushed me down into a darkness
Where only cold and fear can reach me… I am alone,
Even my tears leave me and disappear…

I sink deeper, stumbling through the vast labyrinth of sadness
The track I follow, lead me down to a ocean of sorrow and pain
The way back to the light is too long and I don't have the strength enough…

On the beach by the ocean of sorrow,
My soul finds rest and I fall into eternal sleep,
Here in the realm of darkness…

03. My Dark Reflections Of Life And Death

Music by X Botteri & Tchort
Lyrics by Tchort
Pain is self-inflicted, cause is not
I long for my time, long before its due
Tired of resting in despair

Judge me for who I am,
Relieve me for what I am,
Remember me for what I was,
Forgive me for what I became

Where shadows speak of memories,
I stand alone in my dark and lonely world,
Surrounded by this cold embrace of temptation

White bewinged angel of light, tempts me to change my life,
Come, come to me, she whispers
Longing eyes, she stares through my soul and mind
Wants me to become one of the light

Ah, serpent of lust and lie, where will my path go?
Should I be tempted by the light or should I remain in darkness
All alone, all alone…

Why all this sorrow, why all this confusion?
I was one of thee, why am I left behind?
Hate - fills my mind
Sorrow - breeds my life
But of those I choose, no one is sent out from you

My way will be long, my road will be unknown
Path to eternity, eternity lasts forever
Light of day, day of darkness
I will never be trustful again…

I am not for you, I am not for those
Not for light, not for life
Farewell to sunlit world
On the dark side we will meet,
We will meet again after life…

Time passes slowly
I fade away, life drained
What used to be, what could have been now
I feel no pleasure, only pain
I feed upon my fear of life

Trapped in agony and despair
Anguish of the night
I will meet you again, on the other side…

04. Under Eternal Stars

Music by X Botteri & Tchort
Lyrics by Tchort
Soft rain falls silent down from a black nightsky
Darkness which I have given my lonely life to,
Lay around me like a heavy cloud…

Everything is beautiful, like death is beautiful
Sometime I shall wander here in the realm of darkness
With my princess by my side, she will be dressed
In the colours of the night
Like I am dressed with the colours of the night…

Sometime, I shall share this shivering happiness with one my heart shall choose,
Those who in the night dance…
Cold winds of the fall blow from east
Shadows fall over the tower in the distance…

Darkness returns, grow bigger and more powerful over the nightsky.
Under eternal stars, under the wings of the screaming raven,
I enter the embrace of the fogwoods.
Passionated by darkness, longing for the night

I rest alone, as a child of darkness,
As a child of fall, as a child of loneliness.
Silent I let my soul wander towards the cold light of the moon,
Letting the first nightstar guard me…

The eternal dawn lower over the northern landscape,
There - under eternal stars…

05. Journey To The End Of Night (Part I)

Music by X Botteri & Tchort
Lyrics by Tchort
The wind is playing in the treetops,
The first nightstar glow weak and the lantern of sorrow
Gives its sad light to the darkest depths…

In my embrace I carry you towards your lonely resting place
Dressed in the colours of the night

Your pale skin lights up the night
I kiss your hand goodbye
And lay you tenderfull down in your grave
And dress your naked body with dust

Ah, my dear - what loss
Ah, my love - what desire

Darkness of time surrounds my world
Closing me out from life
The long Vail of sorrow lay around my pale neck and strangles me
Fragments of my actions, my mistakes, passes my blood shot eyes

Dreams of your loss, my sorrow, cuts through my soul
As I enter five years of misery, I kiss you farewell
And enter the dark tomb with you…

To death you lost, against darkness you struggle was short
May the children of the night take your soul
I wish you luck on your long travel, to the end of the night…

Your loss will be remembered! Your fall will be revenged!

08. Shattered (Part IV)

Music by X Botteri & Tchort
Lyrics by Tchort
I stare, with the eyes of an empty soul
In the mirror to the world beyond
But all I see is my dark reflections

I scream, but my voice is being reflected in my head,
I cry, but my tears just disappear,
I mourn for myself and my empty soul,
I swear to overcome my bitter loss

Mourn, for I am dead…
