01. Prologue

Music by Leif Edling
[Instrumental]


02. Emperor Of The Void

Music by Leif Edling
I am the king, of the great islands of grey
Windswept and scatted, bent and confused
My castle is my ruin, the mouldering grave
Where the memory fades along with the mourning cry of the mother

Who counts the wounds, who sees the hunger, the flight of denial
The fibres the nerves, the raptures and bursts, from arteric to cell
Continuously repeating, the hymn of life and death
And the wholy whore, desecrated in desperation

I am the king. The ruler of the grey Islands
I'm the emperor of the void
I am grey. The weakened ruler of these islands.
I'm the emperor of the void

I stand before destruction, touching the stone of my realm
So dignified...unmerciful, without empathy
You saw my birth, an ornament in your grain
You see my death, terrible and divine


03. Devil Seed

Music by Leif Edling
100 devils, follow me 'round
From the craters of chaos to the promised land
Thick black choirs, voices to guide me
Demon heralds sitting beside me

A little seed planted eats through your soul
You're not worthy when you're afraid and alone
Without warning it stars to grow
Spreading sickness inside your bones

I am freezing, and I shake
How much more of this shit can I take
Yes I'm crazy, with flies in my mind
Hellish dreams, espace I must find

The devil's round the bend
Churns me down with fire
And I kill a friend

Sorrow, devastation
My glasshouse cracks in two
Panic, desperation
I die for you

Devil seed

The evil seed is growing
The cancer stream is flowing
The evil heart is granted
Satan's will is planted

Still around facing the hopeless
Too much pain, and no way out
Once again doing the pointless
All these voices continue to shout


04. Of Stars And Smoke

Music by Leif Edling
The monumental sleep
With the sunrise at my feet
Where's the altar of the gods,
The wrath and the floods?

All is in vain

Of stars and of smoke I am
Of shade and of light
With dragons in every hand
I'm wading through life

From nothing I cam before,
To nothing I go
I heard that wise man said:
"From presence to silence...we flow"

The rainbows in the sky
Soon their colors die
I see the birds of prey
They've been circling here all day

It's always the same

We live the eternal dream
The big and cosmic scheme
A part that all play
To stand the last of days

It's all just a game

Of stars and of smoke I am
Of shade and of light
With dragons in every hand
I'm fading through life

From nothing I came before,
To nothing I go
I heard that the wise man said:
"From presence to silence...we flow"


05. Demonia 6

Music by Leif Edling
In my left pocket, spot of all that dies,
A cage of the vile.
13 keys, 13 locks, to the sick and strange
that calls out to me.

I crept through the palace archways
Psychotic and deranged oh lord
Enchanted and estranged inside
It's midnight for days and days and days

I took demonia, in a week or two
So vicious and cruel.
Evil empire, so perverted
Expanding, outstanding thrill

I crept through the palace archways
Psychotic and deranged oh lord
Enchanted and estranged inside
It's midnight for days and days and days
Are the lords of repulsion true oh true?
Did you find the demons, did they find you?
It's not from eden it's not from hell
The evil that's demonia 6

I rise, and then I fall
And i walk, and I crawl
And i am sore and i am whole

Really wonderful, really beautiful,
The cloak of the vile
My euphoria, got no phobia,
I was chained as a child

I crept through the palace archways
Psychotic and deranged oh lord
Enchanted and estranged inside
It's midnight for days and days and days
Are the lords of repulsion true oh true?
Did you find the demons, did they find you?
It's not from eden it's not from hell
The evil that's demonia 6


06. Destroyer

Music by Leif Edling
Land of thousand needles
Land of cripple and lame
So much self indulgence
And so much shit in my brain

The people under the staircase
And all the vomit in hell
Parading here on my doorstep
I just want to get well

You walk amongst us, a majesty of wrath
Chaos and cleansing, one man world war
A mind on kill mode, expressionless face
Brain like a child, fuck the human race

There in the spotlight you grin
And the slaughter of delight begins
Oceans of limelight you drink
And society fall in a blink

You are the destroyer of the world

Destroy the destroyer
I'm plagued with disease
And soon we'll all be
Praying on our knees

I am injected, with venom and your piss
My life is hatred, I spiral down the abyss
A mind on kill mode, expressionless face
Brain like a child, Fuck the human race

And there in the spotlight I grin
Let the slaughter of delight begin
Oceans and limelight I drink
And my dreamworld fall in a blink

I am the destroyer of the world


07. Man Of Shadows

Music by Leif Edling
2 o'clock, the basement doom shift
Afternoon and you dig in the black ditch
Comatose, turned off's the light switch
Collector of grief, full scale deathwish

Everyday, a grey and sad day
I dip my love in soul pain
And still looking for things to detest
Beware of the love that you'll regret

And I'm sitting here with my arms around me, arms around me
I'm a bit surprised that you haven't found me, haven't found me

On top of mount failure, damned and ignored
I nurse the depressions'.... I know what I've lost
Anti-social process, with razors in the closet
On a suicidal mission, whatever the cost

The Lord of grief, '....no relief
The Lord of grief'''.no relief

Man of shadows
The clouds bear your name
And your thought fade to grey'. With
Days in shadow
The dark is the same
But's a whole different day for the'..


08. Clearsight

Music by Leif Edling
We sat the sails, in July
Knew too well it was final goodbye
At the helm, there I stood
Like a tree, awaiting the flood

Over the sea and under the stars
We searched the shores both near and so far
Crossed the last line, the rim of the world
To find reality, life, death and birth

Clearsight....Fearflight....The tears light
Cleartsight....Sheer night.... Near blight
Clearsight....Clersight....Clearsight

Didn't know, what to find
There was no water, we could not return
Sailed the deserts, of the seas
Four years... human debris

Over the sea and under the stars
We searched the shores both near and so far
Crossed the last line, the rim of the world
To find reality, life, death and birth

Clearsight....Fearflight....The tears light
Cleartsight....Sheer night.... Near blight
Clearsight....Clersight....Clearsight

We fled the shallow, the modern decline
The ship of fools, a cursed bark of pine
...compass...dead, as sea and sky met
We reached the end at the cliffs of regret

HMS Clearsight, ghost of the sea
Drifting the oceans forever unfree
In to the storms, the rain and the mist
We still sail the dreams from the deepers grave there is

Clearsight....Fearflight....The tears light
Cleartsight....Sheer night.... Near blight
Clearsight....Clersight....Clearsight
Twilight.... Twilight.... Twilight


09. The Opal City

Music by Leif Edling
[Instrumental]


10. Embracing The Styx

Music by Leif Edling
Blood runs free, down the river
I'm the weeper, the life beriever
I cross the Styx, with coins...onyx
Without the trumpets and horns and pyres

(The) final curtain, death is certain
Harpys sing, my soul is hurting
Razors, rope, mountains of dope
Does it matter, there's no hope

Empracing the Styx
Life is floating out, wave after wave
Empracing the Styx
I sail with Charon this day
Embracing the Styx
Life is floating out, wave after wave
Embracing the Styx
Me, my wrists and a blade

In times of eternal darkness
In times of peace and embrace
When the minstrel of atrophy mock us
There's need for love and there's need for death
Too late for understanding
Too late for your tears
I wait for the last descending
To the opal city and the flaming stairs

I surrender, I return to dust
It must end here, in daze and dusk
So I cry, for all of us
And I smile, as I die.....

A small breeze in time

Waiting and waiting, for a moment of truth and a sun
Dreaming and dreaming, 'til the dreams were crushed by our hands (smothered to sand)
Great thoughts of a triumphing giant
Was given these golden-brown wings
A man who was an ant an a lion
Died on the isle of the king
