01. The Fragile Breath

Amorous eyes, crippling word I bring
Grief vents itself more violently

The hour of parting is at hand

Hope, your warmth failed
The famished are here, forsaken
Fleeting, fading, the fragile
Fading, the fragile

It drinks deep into the soul
Drinks deep into the soul

Fleeting, fading, the fragile

It drinks deep into my soul
Drinks deep into my soul
Drinks me deep


02. In Winters Ash

I lie with blackened chest
Tears, dense, welling in swollen eyes
Resplendent in winter's ash

My God be upheld in our distress
My cries fill the air

Domine libera manes defunctorum

Winter envelopes

I lie with blackened chest
Tears, dense, welling in swollen eyes
Resplendent in winter's ash

Where is my God, in the dull ear of night?
With tuneless voice, a requiem sung
Wailing and breadless, alone
On a flower strewn earth
Where is my God?

Look at me, upon my bruised head
Taste my ruin, my ashen soul
I tread alone

Winter envelopes


03. Silent

Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to pieces

You who must stoop to view the skies
Stoop amongst the dying

Libera eos Domine
I silently wait, and claw my eyes
Libera eos Domine

Stoop to slake this thirst
My sorrow can no more lament
There is no arm to cling to
Stoop to slake this thirst

I silently wait, and claw my eyes
Libera eos Domine

Silent, silently
Waiting, to gorge in solitude

When will my sorrow begin to pale?

And to my head I raise these flowers
Yellowed, withered

Silent, silently
Waiting, to gorge on solitude

When will my sorrow begin to pale?


04. God In Dust

Drink me deep O death devour
Cover me with darkness
And paint me like death
I drown in remembrance

I am blind with weeping
And will mourn until death

Place the hand of God in dust

I am suffering, I am blind

I am made blind with weeping
And I will mourn until death

I tread alone

I am suffering, I am blind
Place the hand of God in dust

I am in the dust, but there I find you

Misery calls, the dark night of the soul
Abandonment carries me home
Carry me home.


05. Lacrimosa (Gather Me)

Gather me, for I am scattered
Speak comfort to me
Gather me, share my sorrow
Lacrimosa.


06. Darkness

Misery calls

My blood has died
And marked my eyes with stains perpetual
Blood has died
Lifeless life cradles dust
Trembling, quantus tremors est futurus
Fading, judgment is at hand
Darkness

I drink deep into the soul
Drink deep into your soul

I am made blind with weeping

I drink deep into your soul
Drink deep into your soul

My blood has died
Blood has died
Lifeless life cradles dust
Trembling, quantus temor est futurus
Fading, judgment is at hand
Darkness

Bless the fallen

My God, save us, O death

Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me (to pieces)

Requiem, Kyrie, requiem

My God, exhort, to not merely draw air,
But breath the skies


07. Forever
