01. Dead Grid Incantation

Screaming souls across the dead grid
Blurred faces and voices crystallized
Beneath the ground howling choirs weep
You shut down; to you it's no longer real

Who are you, why did you come here child?
This is the realm of the dead grid, step inside
To the other place, where no one should ever go
Welcome in to learn the things you shouldn't
Know.


02. The Blackest Breed

A brilliant dark and spiteful creed
Blessed by the kiss of Lilith
At the place where night and hell will meet
She gave birth to us the blackest breed

The darkness is our salvation now
We have all become malice in wonderland
The ghastly ones clad in deepest grief
Blacker than the black in silence we speak

The quiet defiant
The blackest breed
The silent defiant
The blackest breed
The arrogant creed
The blackest breed
Oh the blackest breed
Oh the blackest breed

With the passing of time we became the strangest of all birds in the sky
With awakening minds we cast the chains and we are the unbound crime
The vilest storms rage within the stillest minds
The strongest hearts beat in the quiet kind
Beware of us who always do observe
We'll never bow before you and we were not meant to serve

The quiet defiant
The blackest breed
The silent defiant
The blackest breed
The arrogant creed
The blackest breed
Oh the blackest breed
Oh the blackest breed

With the passing of life we became the epitome of sin and of rebellion
We are the blood, we are the sweat, the lustful zest, the beast tuned flesh

They say we are cursed.
If so by whom?
If so be it
Then so be it

Are we cursed for walking away from this useless world grey?
Are we cursed for walking away from this stage and its twisted play?
Are we cursed for shunning the absurd, then so be it, then we're the cursed
Are we cursed for despising the misled and their lies, then we're proudly cursed
Proudly cursed

Blacker than the blackest black
Dark as a night without an end
Long shadows this void
As nightmares and horrors blend

A brilliantly dark and spiteful creed
Blessed by the kiss of Lilith
At the place where night and hell will meet
She gave birth to us the blackest breed

The blackest breed


03. Carcass Symphony

At dusk they will awake
A ghost dance ball room
As the sun is slaked

At dusk they spring to life
And their damp grey concrete hive
Bathing in fluorescent light

Temples with worms
Praying they'll be butterflies
To be able to move like the wind
If only for a while

In the glistering halls dead bodies swing to the melody
Crystal mirror walls, reflecting the carcass symphony
In the lost souls ball room where dead tissue breathe
Dead they all seem, dead they all are, dead to me
I see broken dolls, their venomous smiles cover grief

In the glistering halls dead you are invisible
They never see anyone, they stare right through
Among the crystal pillars the insects play make-believe
I see broken dolls, their venomous smiles cover grief

Crystal mirrors reflecting unseeing eyes
Crimson lipped mouths spitting their lies
They are all lost, they are all hollow
They are empty inside

Stay away from them
Ignore their siren songs
These genderless whores
Pass by their temples, forever walk on

In the glistering halls clod flesh swing,
A ghost dance for the false
Crystal mirror walls, entangled in lies
On and on the waltz on

We the sulphur kissed
The ones to walk the path twilit
Among the living and torn
Among the alive and battle worn

The sweet promise of grandeur
In defiance of and end that must come
In the ghost dance ball room
Where the soothing lies are sung

I am rather the sulphur kissed
The one to walk the path twilit
Among the living and torn
Among the alive and the battle worn

We are the proudly flawed
The last children of the fall
We are the sulphur kissed
We walk the path twilit
We are the proudly flawed
The last children of the fall
We are the sulphur kissed
We walk the path of twilight


05. Lighthouse Eternal (Laterna Magika)

This night is dark, black as hell itself
This is the wolf hour, a sea ready to devourer
Standing at the Shore, looking out
Standing by the sea, forever looking for thee

I have been standing by the sea, built to stand for forever
As walls of water crash, I am stone, I will last

Radiant my fiery eye, cutting through the night
A solemn last promise, a barren unyielding light

I might be the last light you see
The first not to abandon thee

Lighthouse Eternal, Lanterna Magika

No matter where you hoped to go
No matter where you have been
No matter what you hoped to find
No matter what you have seen
No matter what you hoped to achieve
No matter what you have become
No matter what you hoped to do
No matter what you have done

I will always find you
not let a single soul go astray

I will bring you home again
Not one single soul will be left behind

These winds once carried me too
Back when I was so like you
I left port in search for other shores
I dared these waves when all else had failed

Now I stand blacker than the night
At a shore where no one should go
My light will never falter, never fade
When all else is lost, I remain

Lighthouse Eternal, Lanterna Magika

No matter where you hoped to go
No matter where you have been
No matter what you hoped to find
No matter what you have seen
No matter what you hoped to achieve
No matter what you have become
No matter what you hoped to do
No matter what you have done

At the edge of this world of darkness
This is the last port before it all ends
For the stray ships cast the furtherest south of Eden

No matter your flaws you are welcome here,
No matter your sins or past my dear
You are welcome home sweet fallen one

I will bring you home again
Lighthouse Eternal, lanterna magika


06. Hidden Beneath Flesh Pest Ridden

The truth lies hidden, beneath the skin
The truth is bitter, the truth is hidden
The truth lies hidden, beneath the skin
The truth lies hidden beneath flesh pest ridden


07. The Beauty Of Bones

We are the ostracised
The fucking apostatised
Scorning the dogmatised
Black puke globalised

We are the demonised
The lost cursed and stigmatised
The black fucking tantalised
This healthy world's parasites

As the havoc ceases
And our bodies drained
Past the last heart beat
Then we are akin again

The beauty of bones
As the chains of flesh let go
When naked bones remain
Only then will we be the same again

We never wished for this to be
Never asked to differ, we just do
But in truth we are quite like thee
We have bones as do you

Behold the malprogrammed drones
Your failed and now useless clones
Rejoice now cause beneath it all
we are all but bones

When the flesh has failed
And mere bones remain
Then we will be so alike
Then we are the same

The beauty of bones
As the chains of flesh let go
When naked bones remain
Only then will we be the same again

We are the ostracised
The fucking apostatised
Scorning the dogmatised
Black puke globalised

We are the demonised
The lost cursed and stigmatised
The black fucking tantalised
This healthy world's parasites


08. Forever Mournful

Forever darkness
Forever rain
Forever mournful
I will remain

Forever darkness
Forever falling rain
Forever mournful
I stand alone and so I will remain

The world is changing
Nothing stays the same
Forever eroding
Only I seem to remain
I stand still, dead and cold
A stone statute, so black, and alone

Time cuts wound that never heal
Forgot how it was like to feel
What it was like to believe
How life used to be
I turned dark
I grew cold
I turned to stone

I seen so many souls come
And I have seen them all go
I have seen many gods rise
And I will see them all fall
All hope promised
A sad fated lost chance
All seem dead to me
All i see, ghost dance

The world is changing
Nothing stays the same
Forever eroding
Only I seem to remain
I stand still, dead and cold
A stone statute, so black, and alone

I stand still and I stand cold
I stand everdark and I am stone
This soul is frozen, these limbs are worn
This heart is to tired, this soul is so torn

I am mournful in this void of laughter
I am stone in this realm of flesh
All I see around me is a ghost dance
Frozen in a world that slowly changes
Destroying all I ever needed to believe
Forever mournful as time passes

Let the Nordic thunder roar

Time cuts wound that never heal
forgot how it was like to feel
What it was like to believe
How life used to be
I turned dark
I grew cold
I turned to stone


10. Blood Orchid

Black cityscape
Towering...
Stone fangs tearing at the sky
Putrid tears fall

Black horrorscape
Ghosts line these avenues
These streets are trenches
Ugly are these scars
...and filled with rats they are
Filled with rats they are!

There are choirs, a ghost vesper for hope
Like whispers beyond the roaring machinery
So few the flowers in these gardens of rust
Nested they rest 'neath the carpet of dust

I stand to watch the leaving birds spread their wings
They will leave high above the chaos, high above everything
While I hide deep within my flesh fortress under siege
Where neither teachings nor syringes can reach

There must be beauty beyond this rugged city where we're confined
There must be another meaning, greater than all their lies combined
I've chosen another path, walking away from the strains of life
A search for the blood orchid in the rusted gardens of mankind

Autumn clutched in the earthen arms of summer's growth
Beneath the canopy of warmth
Where stars beacons the weary and small
Yet every garden bear the witness of coming fall

Few are the flowers in the gardens of man
In these sparkling gutters of neon Babylon
Ghost dance amongst the fortunate whores
Scared and maimed the pale stumble on...

Blood Orchid
There must be beauty beyond this rugged city where we're confined
Blood Orchid
There must be another meaning, greater than all their lies combined
Blood Orchid
I've chosen another path, walking away from the strains of life
Blood Orchid
A search for you in these rusted gardens of mankind

I stand to watch the leaving birds spread their wings
They will leave high above the chaos, high above everything
While I hide deep within my flesh fortress under siege
Where neither teachings nor syringes can reach

There must be beauty beyond this rugged city where we're confined
There must be another meaning, greater than all their lies combined
I've chosen another path, walking away from the strains of life
A search for the Blood Orchid in the rusted gardens of mankind

Blood orchid


11. Ashen Nectar

All aboard, this ship bound for wreckage
Sail ho, fuckers!

Who could foresee that this state of mind was forever?
That we would never wake up from our nightmares?

That the black poison dripped onto our skin would burn us
That the clean streams of time wouldn't be able to wash it away...

Once these robes were worn as masquerade costumes
The smooth velvet reviled hooks and razor claws
That would not come of, cutting into the skin
The harder we pulled the deeper its barbs dug in...

Until death do us part my fair ones
We're the kings and queens of the depraved undone
In the filthy streets, our splendid court, this neon Babylon

We are the stars that refuse to shine
No ships will navigate by our signs
We are the tones that distort the chord
In a world of perfection we are the flawed

We are the birds with broken wings
The useless ones, we don't believe in anything
We believe in no gods left high above
And there will be no angels where we go

We are the Ashen Nectar,
we are the tainted well
We are the Ashen Nectar,
side by side we watch the world go by

We are the Ashen Nectar,
the last poets of a dying breed
We are Ashen Nectar,
our skins our canvases, our paint the blood we bleed

All words were first spoken then stolen
Onto paper splattered
By the weakened hand in the dark room
Visions and a life lay scattered

We are suns bent for darkness
The stars that refuse to shine
Artists of a different kind
The ones that leave nothing behind

There is no clean white bed, for this dying bride
Farewell...

We left our last pieces to be lost
In forgotten dusty attics
Where our blood has dried
We were the ashen nectar fanatics

There will nothing left when we leave
Our shadowy art will remain unseen
As we step through the haze
Silhouettes exiting this dream

We are the stars that refuse to shine
No ships will navigate by our signs
We are the tones that distort the chord
In a world of perfection we are the flawed

We are the birds with broken wings
The useless ones, we don't believe in anything
We believe in no gods left high above
And there will be no angels where we go

We are the Ashen Nectar
We are the tainted well
We are the Ashen Nectar
Side by side, we watch the world go by

We are the Ashen Nectar
The last poets of a dying breed
We are Ashen Nectar
Our skins our canvases, our paint the blood we bleed


12. Boulevard Black

Death like, pale
Graceful ballet
In silence drawing near
For a second mere

Forlorn silhouettes
For an instant there
Only to disappear,
Forever changing all
And the few that see, and still believe
Sweet, painful, fragile
Dreams...

A haven of chaos
So scarred and so alone
Walking dead
Lost in streets unknown

We were once the invisible ones
Those that spoke and no one heard
Ghosts dancing in silver lit nights
And never to return to this world
Ivory and dye,
Delicate porcelain
Calm these façades
Lost in rain relentless

The brilliant and shining few
Who once drowned amongst the grey
Spite the pain and whipping rain
Chose to walk these lesser travelled ways
Away!

Walking down this road
Many its winding turns
A barren scar of stone
Though all that stings and hurts

Walk on to new rivers
The ones of old ran dry
Their barren depths unveiled
Crystal streams fell prey to the hands of time

Days and nights go by, one by one
Like water slipping through tired fingers
Precious gems stolen from idle hands
Small pieces of the sun,
Now lost

Adrift in eternal darkness
Breathing in the gloom
Walking darkened gardens
Where only shadows bloom

Oh this world looks so different now
A little more dies with every passing day
Every minute steals a colour
Flawing beauty in all ways

Memories start to dither, One by one
Dreams fall to splinters, One by one

Seems like I am dying
No air for these lungs
It feels like I am dying
So far from home

Beneath the celestial canopy
Angel wings and demon seeds
Beneath the celestial canopy
The legions march with me

We walk the boulevard black
Across these fields of grey
Like ghost adrift in gloom
In search for other ways
A place where we belong
We walk down boulevard black
An endless row of souls
And we are marching home

We walk down Boulevard so black
An endless stream of time,
This finite march called life
We walk down Boulevard so black
This everflow into the unknown
Back to where we came from

Praised be those of silence
The blood tainted ivory innocence
Praised be those that differ
Blessed be the children of the fall
Those that walk the boulevard black
The legions of the left hand avenue

An ode to the fallen
An ode to for the lost
An ode to the stranded
To those that still burn

All of the chains are splintered
Those that woke are walking, fairlight
All of my dreams are dead now
All golden lies are lead now
All of my angels have fallen
We walk this earth like ghosts
All of my angels are fallen
All of my angels are beautiful

Sing to me oh you sweet bleeding planet
Sing to us that walk your ruins
Sing to us for our words are dead
Sing to us for their world is dead to us

An ode for the thinning breed of angels
For their crimson lips and tangled feathers
Majestic wings are spread climbing the sun
One for the reason in reasoning no more

Walking down this road
Many its winding turns
A barren scar of stone
Though all that stings and hurts
And we are like fire flies,
Boldly daring the night
And we dance for a radiant while
Born to drift out of time...
But for a second mere we glared
For an instant we were there
Before the last grain of sand fell
No tears as I bid thee fare well...

We walk down Boulevard so black
An endless stream of time,
This finite march called life
We walk down Boulevard so black
This everflow into the unknown,
Back to where we came from

We walk down boulevard black
Across these fields of grey
Like ghost adrift in gloom
In search for other ways
A place where we belong
We walk the boulevard black
An endless row of souls
And we are marching home

We are like fire flies
Boldly daring the night
And we dance for a radiant while
Born to drift out of time...

But for a second mere we glared
For a shining instant we were there
Before the last grain of sand fell
No tears as I bid thee fare well...

At the end of a black boulevard
