01. Half Light

Music & lyrics by J. Ericson
Callous and empty
Lifeless image
Echoes, them echoes
Strangles my will
To become something else

Hope will perish within me
And lower me with a smile
Rid me from my burden
Let me sleep for a while

Days go by
Nothing changes
Nothing lives
In this half-light existence
Anymore

Dead silent
Inner turmoil
Half-light existence

Breathless,thoughts of dying
These moments never fail
To remind me

Hope will perish within me
And lower me with a smile
Rid me from my burden
Let me see sleep for a while

Days go by
Nothing changes
Nothing lives
In this half-light existence
Anymore


02. Dead Words Speak

Music & lyrics by J. Ericson
Ailments of grey cover these hurtful limbs
A seething anger grows
Voiceless come your calls

Dead words speak
They speak to me at night
And sometimes I get frightened
Gives no peace
And sometime I'll get frightened
'Cause sometimes they are right

I can't seem to rid this burden I bear
Ghost of misty mornings, please disappear

It sickens and destroys everything I've built
And tears down the walls with anger and guilt

Dead words speak
They speak to me at night
And sometimes I get frightened
Gives no peace
They hunt me at night
And sometimes I get frightened
'Cause sometimes they are right

I can't seem to rid this burden I bear
Ghost of misty mornings, please disappear


03. The Lachrymal Sleep

Music & lyrics by J. Ericson
Useless numb existence, I breathe
My tired limbs crawling through mud

Sickening clamour from bodies so still
Weakened by each moment I breathe

Let me slip into hiding
Let me dream, one final dream

In this coffin of light
In which I live kills my will
To feel alive
I beg you to, help me through

Red colours the broken
Embodies the snow
I bleed with the cold

Let me slip into hiding
Let me dream,
One final dream

In this coffin of light
In which I live kills my will
To feel alive
I beg you to, help me through


04. Upon The Cataract

Music & lyrics by J. Ericson
Sadness, drowning me again,
Sickness, crawling through the murk

I can hear the water come rushing in
My life, it feels like a disease

Sleepless, hiding from the sun
Lifeless, fallen to the ground

It stains my soul
It leaves me cold
I've foreseen my downfall

Paint my soul
In colours of the old
Broken down, I fall

Useless, words become useless
Drowning, I face the final fall
The world is no more...

It washes over me like a disease
I can't forget you,
I can't be free from the memories

Down, down we go from here
There's no place better
Kill, kill me dear,
I can't hear any laughter
Your shameful face swallows your soul
Kill, kill what's left of me
I can't go any further
I used to be so fucking strong
But now I have nothing

Faceless I have become,
Sleepless, sleepless once again
Hiding from the sun...

It stains my soul
It leaves me cold
I've foreseen my downfall

Paint my soul
In colours of the old
Broken down, I fall


05. Leaden Winged Burden

Music & lyrics by J. Ericson
No words can help me
Down here, I dwell

Recollect, must forget
Try to sleep, in too deep

It stains my soul, it hurts to know
Down below the darkness grow
I burned my wings for less than nothing
I failed to see, forgot to breathe

I am to blame, breathing the shame
It sickens my heart, it tears me apart
Cursed by the sun, what have I done?

I am to blame, breathing the shame
It sickens my heart, it tears me apart
O burden let go, help me to grow

I don't deserve, your precious words
They're haunting me, they disagree

I can't see, I can't believe
In this world, better leave


06. Threnode

Music & lyrics by J. Ericson
I despise my own existence
I am all yet nothing

I distrust the human condition
With every breath I take

The world is dead through my eyes
The flesh, a grievous swarm of flies

I'm blinded by the piercing light
Sickened by this false harmony

The world is dead though my eyes
The flesh, a grievous swarm of flies.

Life; like a wound that acts
Dragging me down through a torn existence
My restless soul

I seek comfort in the darkest of times

Time keeps dragging on
I feel like I don't belong

The world is dead though my eyes
The flesh, a grievous swarm of flies.

Life; like a wound that acts
Dragging me down through a torn existence
My restless soul
Pierced by the light
The silence grows
There's nothing left but the stains
