01. Thus With A Kiss I Die

Tears fall from my somber stare
Abandoned and nobody cares
I watched you walk away
As if I were never there
You said you are not the only one in this world
Yet you are the only one I've ever loved
From my sole sanctuary exiled
And likewise heaven above

You have forsaken me

Sleepwalk to the gallows
To expel my hollow soul
Unto fire, unto cold
Into hell I must go
A broken heart, a broken wing, I'm falling
Into this pain deep within
Infinitely spiraling
To my sorrow-filled end

You have foredoomed me

When again these eyes you gaze into
You'll see I'm still reaching for you

How could you leave me here?

You have forsaken me


02. Into The Wells Of Sorrow

Ghostwinds draw forth the clouds
That will shroud me in black forever
Once again I stare into the night
Darkness binds my life and death together

The dark clouds a portrait of her
The black-cloaked face of death
Her empty eyes a hallway to heaven
But my sanctum is beyond unfathomed depths

I will never be at rest
Until the sun forever sets

A solemn walk through this maze of paled stones
Monuments to the ending of pain
Souls cry forth from eternal sanctum
Knowing only death remains

Now I stand before the altar
They call me from ethereal gates
I raise my head in dignity
Knowing only death is the absence of pain


03. The Death Of Love

The once beautiful flower has withered and gone
It is memory's charnel vast that I weepeth on
Lifeless, this lonely heart swoons 'neath my breast
For my tears bring you back not, from silent rest

Lamentations and woe, peace never shall I know
Blood less bitter be than these tears brackish with sorrow
Every promise ever born now lay broken
False words are better left asleep on thy lips than spoken

With autumn's dirge summer doth end
And dreams, like leaves, decay into the wind
Pallid as the breath on which they blow
Is my heart, buried 'neath a solemn pall of snow

This ice holds not sanctum, nor reason
For thy heart's swift change of season
With your dying, element and emotion unfold
And I, I live no longer in this cold

"Sadness, unlike love, is eternal"
