01. The Giant

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Falling from my life deep to the sea
Drowning from living to the depths of me
Like the water that burns in my lungs
And the light that slowly fades above me
I'm bleeding rivers and they carried me to the sea
Crushing in this pressure, turning to stone

Roots rip my flesh and fill my skull
As worms dance around my drowning body
Feasting for the one that has gone...
But I'm arriving, closing the door, ocean floor

Seven steps from my cradle
Closer to the end with every breath
What is this hell that was made for living?
I am arriving

The giant has grown too big inside me
Mountains of black stone, a volcano of dirt
When it went wrong? Why am I here now?
But not for long...

Climbing up from this nest of nothingess
My faihthful steps behind me
Marking my trail with circles, a path for you all
We've been ripped out from the womb
Through blood and pain into this life, and we cry
Ripped out, given, but made to be taken away

I've been hiding this giant for too long
And it's grown like a parasite inside me
Under this shadow I've been walking
Now it's taken over me, and she...
The pure girl, leave me before it's too late
Or I will cut your wings

For I can't control this that burns
It flows inside, through my every vein
It fills my fingers and burns my throat
Chains my heart again
Insane pain

I throw myself into this stream
And let it take me down, underground
Here I end, from here I begin
The line is broken like my fragile body

Flesh rots before the giant's eyes
As he awakes from his silent rest
Rips open my chest, steps out from this crest
Don't take over me please, leave this lonely man,
Please leave.


02. Descending Winters

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Out from the north into the south
Winter turned his frozen mouth
Tearing down the voices of living
Leaving bodies buried in ice

The wrath of distant clouds
And the weeping of the ground, it will come
Cold wind carries the voice of doom
Singing songs for the damned

Descending winters for all lands
All hope is gone in his hands
Out from the north into the south
Winter turned his frozen mouth

Slaying the oceans and darkening the sun
With little breeze, it will come
Enormous tide of burning cold storms
He will cleanse the land with single breath

Descending winters for all lands
All hope is gone in his hands
Out from the north into the south
Winter turned his frozen mouth

No shelter can save us now
As the winds come roaring
There is no place to hide
The final season is close at hand
Taste the air so silent, it will come...

Descending winters for all lands
All hope is gone in his hands
Out from the north into the south
Winter turned his frozen mouth


03. Psychopath's Lair

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Wash your hands
And light the candles
Turn the lights out
And I'll turn the music on

I'll serve you food you've never tasted before
And after the midnight hour
I'll treat you like a real man should

This is a portrait of a clear mind
The profile of my kind
I'll bring flames on your face
And when I'm done
You'll become one of mine

Her eyes shine like the glow of the sun
As she poses without a shame
But if only she could know
Where she has come...

This is a portrait of a clear mind
The profile of my kind
I'll bring flames on your face
And when I'm done
You'll become one of mine

I'll take you down to psycopath's lair
I'll drag you there, to the psychopath's lair
I'll take you down, down to the psycopath's lair

This is a portrait of a clear mind
The profile of my kind
I'll bring flames on your face
And when I'm done
You'll become one of mine


04. Forgive Her...

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Sinking in the depths of her warm caress
But the dagger I hide won't shed forgiveness
Her secret is revealed or am I wrong
Though her flesh is weak, my hand is strong

There slow days and endless nights
I've learned her ways
There open wounds and bleeding scars
Led me to her burning trails

I've been watching her silent sleep
Catching names through her sleep

The truth that lurks behind those eyes
When she grabs her pillow tight
So stay with me awhile and enjoy the fire
The flames that blaze in my eyes
Are your jury and your last trial

I've been watching her silent sleep
Catching names through her sleep

The vipers dance around her neck
When she slowly turns her cheek
It's getting late to leave this all
For I have found the cure
The burning touch of her innocence
And her eyes so pure

I could love her but I can't forgive her
So it slowly slides inside her...


05. Fragile

Music & lyrics by Aleksi Munter
I remember her
Dark flowing hair
Eyes like deep blue waters
And her skin so fair

I remember her
How she used to sing
Melodies so full of sorrow
Dreams in the making

She was so fragile

Lying on my arms, not breathing
I can still hear the echo of her voice
And now as I hear them coming
I take her to our last dance

I remember her
Delicate beauty
Her eyes so wise and knowing
When she looked at me

She was so fragile

Lying on my arms, not breathing
I can still hear the echo of her voice
And now as I hear them coming
I take her to our last dance

The red haze fading
My vision regaining
And on my arms I see her lifeless body

Realizing what I've done
Anguish grips my heart
I close her eyes for the last time and she'll sing no more

She was so fragile

Lying on my arms, not breathing
I can still hear the echo of her voice
And now as I hear them coming
I take her to our last dance


06. Ghost Of Laura Palmer

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
The fountain runs quiet
Through the emerald steps and lavender air
The statues praise the beauty of hers
Flowers bloom around her marble breasts

Silver drops of the open night sky
Light this ruined garden
The vines hanging on pillars and walls
Gather the light over the water

Cold serenity lies within these secret halls
Embracing me in her essence
The air so calm and still, and her voice
Leading me deeper, deeper inside

Through the water and floating leaves
I'm following her soft call
Into the throne of her fertile loins

In the flame she was moving slow
Whispering passionate words
As she breathed frost
Out of her warm, wet mouth
She felt like the ghost of Laura Palmer


07. Gloom, Beauty And Despair

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
The velvet fog came after the sun wept her last rays
Shedding her tears for the night,
The night she'll never see
The all-seeing eye, the dead light of luna
Watched as the gloom gently closed the flowers
But the ones I laid upon her
Stayed open to mourn my loss

The night air never hurt so deep
As it whispered praises of despair
To keep in this lonely heart

These fingers cut the wet flesh
Bleeding red rivers through my face
On my weak kness I wept, but death stayed there
Until I lost her to gloom, beauty and despair

Please open your eyes
Please don't fade away
I won't let you leave me
I'll follow you through it all
Wherever it will lead me
I will follow

Deeper into the pain
Further away, for her
I step down to where tears remain
Over the frozen rivers
Through the land of the dead
Forever lost and bound in woe
Of my ropes of sorrow I wouldn't let go
They hanged me to this place I fell
Alone and blind I travel in my hell
Forever and forever and forever alone


08. The Ship

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
It came with the nightfall
The dark that swallowed the stars
One by one it painted them black
And brought horror to our hearts

It came down in the shape of rain
A wall of black waters
Spreading the end to the earth below
And I ran and left them all

Away from those dying voices
I escape the eye of the doom
The triumph of fear and ending lives
And I left them all and ran
Until I reached the shore

The waves greeted me with majestic mourn
To the sea I shed my last hope
And the ocean carried me away

The sound of ending world was fading
Until I only heard my heart in despair
Closed my eyes and fell into a sleep
Relieving dream of the distant sun

"Awake" whispered the sea
And my tearful eyes were open
The crystal night sky shone like water
The roof of eternity, ballet of million stars

But as I turned my eyes down to the horizon
The stars were fading one by one...
