Mourning Lenore - Loosely Bounded Infinities lyrics


01. Contours Of A Dream

Crumbling artifacts of past,
Joy never found again.

In the absence of this sun,
Portraying charcoal scars
In artificial cascades of ebony,
An exhausted perspective
Over hearts and flesh and mind.

Forever deceptive in their
Meaningless wanderlust,
Restless atrophy of emotions
And so, illusions are born.

Ethereal Mist,
Shaped as a Crown
Devoid of Jewels.

Spirals of gray
Entwining in chromatic masks,
Circling subconsciously.

02. Reminiscence

Swallow my departure,
A nervous wave at a distance,
A grey absence,
A flesh deep farewell.

A shard of mercurial mirror,
Replacing my distorted self,
Reflecting my denied emotions.

Flickering mist,
Blurred ash, bleak self.
No more understanding
Of this life, of this lie.

An illusion
Of a brighter Night than Day,
Just a mirage.
Memories of shadows in the past.

03. Everlasting

How can I process
Such a complex concept?
No Alpha, no Omega,
No Beginning, no End.

Soulless I feel,
Emptiness I breathe.
Across your universe
Will I find what I need?
These awkward questions,
They torment me,
Day and Night until infinity.

Everlasting distance,
Unchain me from rationality,
Demystify the complexity of infinity.

(Such an abstract conception,
Cannot be followed by my comprehension.
Such a defiance of logical interpretation.)

There are no boundaries
For the unknown,
Where science and religion fail.

04. Unchained

Lifeless journey
Through misfortune...
Your knife,
Still carving bitterness
On my back.

All those years
Of ruin and deception,
Like an earthquake bringing me apart.

I followed you blindly...
(My hollow heart grieves in devotion)
All the pain that I feel
Is still too much.

Drowned deep in sorrow,
Long since the last tears were shed.

A slow, though liberating death.

Unchained at last!

05. Rain's Seduction

All over only shadows remain,
Everywhere I look there's a soul in pain.
Human-warm ashes run through my veins.

I can only wait, wait for the rain.

Cold rain, wash away my sin,
Set me free, let me be,
Take me down once again,
Take me where I belong.

Forever seems such a long time...
Tomorrow won't feel that wrong.

Please, carry me
In your sweet warm womb.
Have me as your child,
Feed me for a while...

Grab my pale weak hand
In this moment of despair,
Clear my eyes,
Show me what's fair.

(Tonight, we reunite once again,
And, maliciously, you hold me
In your arms.

Wipe my tears,
Pretend to take away my fears.)

"It's not gonna be better tomorrow,
Forever you shall drown
In your sorrow."

06. Patterns Of Emptiness

Curse, destruction,
Eternal wait in Void!
This Chaos deep inside my soul.

Is nothing all I see?
A promise of peace I'll never feel?
Imprisoned in oblivion,
My doom is to never be reborn!

I am lost in my mind!
All gone in a sigh!

Memories of a lost innocence,
Falling forever
In a pattern of emptiness.

Nothing's all I see,
A promise of peace I'll never feel.
Walking on infinity,
Drifting away from my sanity.
