01. The Gate Of Adar

Music & lyrics by Juhani Palomäki
I've gazed beyond the stars and infinite space
Beheld the dimensions unknown to man
I've shaken while seeing the laws of time and space crumble to the pits of pandemonic horrors

For what I've invoken can't be banished
and I'm too weak to fight
Alone I tremble in underground chambers of isolation

Pits where grotesque ungodly beings scream for centuries
Called beyond the universe of mortals
I've opened the gate and now it's too late
The Great One will appear, the ultimate death draws near
For Mankind

Tunnels filled with maddening stench of hell
Inbred creatures that will rip human flesh
Screams of pain and timeless terror
From below the day of doom shall come forth

Standing at the gate and waiting
Dark waters stir again
The coming of the apocalypse
Destruction of all that I've once held dear

Standing at the gate and waiting
Dark waters stir again
I suffer this terror until I face my death
With all mankind


02. Corridors Of Desolation

Music & lyrics by Juhani Palomäki
Cold within myself
I stare to empty gloom
Languishing years predicting the end
Were there even beginning at all

Lying above myself
Gazing at my body
Ravage of empty self
Pale soulless embrace

Opium has left my veins
Reality's gruesome knives lacerate my flesh
But I'll never cry

Please leave me be within these shades of grey
Soulless nonexistent flame must be extinguished without a single tear


03. Weathered

Music & lyrics by Juhani Palomäki
Vast fields of ice prevailed by gloom
Still they flicker in relentless storm
Echoes resound through the years
Silent screams that will never leave

Spheres of chaotic reign
Beyond sleep - bereft of life
Escape the earth through nebula
Enter the mind

Walking through the seasons unchanging
You saw the autumn long time ago
Winter's grasp choked its' quiet roots
Lying dead beneath the snow

Were you ever here at all
Absurd of absurdities
Now close yourself within unending sleep

Floating among angels of blood
Gargoyles chanting in circles of stone
Enter disappearance and blankness eternal
Gargoyles chanting in circles of stone
Beyond time


04. Saturnine Vastness

Music & lyrics by Juhani Palomäki
Bleak time stands still here
Frozen vastness of nothingness
I feel nothing but pain
Can't escape the infinity of screams

I writhe in unending bliss of torment, neverending
So blind to my being that once existed beyond agony

Slowly I drift to slumber exhausting
to awake in another reality
More unforgiving and..
Cruel

Hollow walls painted with tears uncried
Sullen chambers for dead to lie

Close your eyes and try to see
Something that you've never seen


05. Aesthetics Of The Grotesque

Music & lyrics by Juhani Palomäki
Murder becomes essential in preserving the worlds beyond within
Last night I slept with mother earth
She become my precious whore

Now night breeds the flock of stillborn thoughts
There's nothing more
Flesh and soul are but words
Insomniacs transparent phantasms

Worlds within worlds
Unchanging chemistry and science
Sleep for you'll never see any of me
No..

Now I'm standing under bloody rain
I wish I had had words, but they never came

Now I'm standing beside the dead
I wish I had had something I've never imagined
You're just one, one among others
They're taking me away..
Away for good


06. Delirium

Music & lyrics by Juhani Palomäki
Shadow of myself or was it god
There's voices in the walls all around
Mocking my weary distress
Duplicating memories of nowhere
Aching inside convulsive sleep
Foam and worms among broken glass
Absence of time, abrasive roar
Why do you feed me with needles...
Why?

Trial shall open now
The mirrors awaken
Breeding monsters, demons within
Judge is me transformed, multiplied

There's no place for me to rest anymore
Torn from inside, bleeding in vain

There's no place for me to live anymore
Trapped inside the wait for a dawn that's never here

Writhing in terror
They're coming for me
Demons of my sleep returning through the ages
Calling for anyone, but none will hear
There's nothing more but the pain
This neverending pain

I bid farewell to everything and cast my last breath
Final touch of pain remains my dearest and only friend
