01. Looming Majesty

Instrumental


02. White Noise Sky In Overdrive

The fading lumicance
These cracking facades
Nails dig so deep
As reason breaks away

Horrendous this curse bestowed upon me
Contrasting the beauty that used to be
So devastating is the loss of life's melody

High above the radiance is gone
The transmission has finally come to an end
A whitenoise sky in overdrive
An existance in monochrome
A whitenoise sky in overdrive
In grey i bathe beneath the dome

Life noir
This is a black dying star
Life noir
In the end we will all know who we are
Life noir
Bleak skies to reveal the scars
Life noir

With all colours paling
And contrasts fading
The desertion of all meaning
So useless and demeaning

With the demise of dreams
Everything is what it seems
The pointlessness of being
The loss of visions for the seeing

Monochrome is my soul
Grey, grey, grey, grey!

Tired hands let the cards rest
And the ink slowly dries to dust
A weary heart loses it rhythm
Devastating the loss of existence melody
Such a subtle shift
To tear away the mind from the flesh

There can be nothing worse
Nothing more faul,
nothing more perverse
Than to finally grasp it all,
and find it absurd

The grand play lost a character
the script leapt another way
With the whitenoise sky as his only witxness
he was cast away
Far away!

04. A Shadow In The Garden Of Darkness

In the year of 1859
Born was a shadow of light
In garden where the darkness grew
In the garden of sophisticated lies

In the realm of ever reigning gloom
Where the gardeners trimed the vines
Born was a shadow and regal he grew
A majestic silhouette to dim their night

Oh, dark was the carpet woven
Flawed was their perfect design
A tapestry destined to be torn
One truth and their kingdom was no more

A shadow in the garden of darkness
One of a light as dark as the heart of the night
A shadow born in the garden of lies
One of a light as dark as the heart of the night

Their garden was of such a delightful darkness
Such a relief for eyes that never wanted to see
And the less they saw, the more they believed
A shadow in the garden of darkness!

An empire of eternal lies
By the flare of a thought watch it ignite the skyline
An aeon of enslavement and strife
Like bonfires temple flames lick the night sky

Oh, dark was the carpet woven
Flawed was their perfect design
A tapestry destined to be torn
Oh A shadow in the garden of darkness
One of a light as dark as the heart of the night
A shadow born in the garden of lies
One of a light as dark as the heart of the night

There can be nothing darker
Than a night presented to be the day
There can be nothing fouler
Than the lie in the guise of truth
The truth


05. Strindbergian Fire

No stellar flames
No stars in their finally fiery rapture
Could match this my inferno

Some creatures roam this world wide aflame
Some of us destined to forever blaze
Some of us were never quite capable
Some of us were never quite able

To harness our flames
to tame our furnace
To confine our flares
Alit, afire, ablaze

Ages have passed and the fire still burns
The wheels of time have spun
We have seen the dawn of so many an age
We have kept aflame through the changes

Feed our flames
Fear our flames
Flee our flames
Feel our flames

The fire i carry, this inferno I am
will consume me and all I touch
I burn and my flames will engulf your world
And I will consume you

The fire I am, of horrendous scope
And so scorching is my heat
These flames will devour me
They will burn thee and end everything

Some creatures roam this world wide aflame
Some of us destined to forever blaze
Some of us were never quite capable
Some of us were never quite able

To harness our flames
to tame our furnace
To confine our flares
Alit, afire, ablaze

This furnace I am
Engulfs all that I touch
All that I see
All that I feel

Let it be heard I never asked to burn in a world benighted
As all beacons I lead the weary astray
Yet I sought to lead the way
I am the fire


06. The Weight Of Vapour

In growing numbers
They head into the night
Familiar silhouettes
Of beloved ones drifting by

With every passing shadow
I wish I was wrong
About where they are going
And what they will find out there

A thousand throats
Screaming in silence
Slit speechless by her descent
The echo of heavens crashing
The massive thunder of falling feathers

One who does not curse death has not truely loved

If I had gods
this would be when I would have prayed to them
If I had gods
This would be when I would raced up to face them
I'd cut out their eyes
Just as these tears made me fumbling blind
I'd tear out their hearts
Just as they robbed me of mine and I'd cast them down to die

I wish I was wrong
About why they left
I wish that I could believe
That there would in fact be
Someone to meet them
Someont to bring them all home

A thousand throats
Screaming in silence
Slit speechless by her descent
The echo of heavens crashing
The massive thunder of falling feathers
He who does not denounce his gods has not learnt the meaning of loss

I have cursed death
And I have known love
I've slain my gods
Only emptiness above
Light like vapour I was drifting next to thee
Massive the weight as I took my leave

I have cursed death
And I have known love
I've slain my gods
Only emptiness above
Light like vapour you were drifting next to me
Massive the weight as you took your leave


07. At The Bottom Of The Crystal Artery

To some this is an abyss
To others a barren shore
For all a place of no return
Where no path lead onwards
When words fall short
So weak, so frail and futile
And the soul is covered by frost
Standing at the crossroads of the lost

Rapid these waters
Such promising alure
A final release
From what cannot be endured
Such a ghastly glow
Bestowed upon the one that let go

Welcoming hands
The river's cold embrace
A cleansing numbness
My "I" is ereased
Such an eerie flow
Thoughts cease, pulled down below
Towards release

At the bottom of the crystal artery
At the bottom of an end

Under the weight of all failures
Towards the bottom of the crystal artery
So slow the descent to a dark end
So slow the descent to the unescapbale end
At the bottom of the crystal artery

The only escape from the limbo
Is down into the alluring depths
Only by reaching the bottom
Where rock and feet can meet
Only then can escape be reached
One push up and ahead
One kick to break free from the dead
The darkness never looked brighter

Rapid these waters
Such promising alure
A final release
From what cannot be endured
Such a ghastly glow
Bestowd upon the one that let go

Welcoming hands
The river's cold embrace
A cleansing numbness
My "I" is ereased
Such an eerie flow
Thoughts cease, pulled down below
Towards release

At the bottom of the crystal artery
At the bottom of an end
Under the weight of all failures
Towards the bottom of the crystal artery
So slow the descent to a dark end
So slow the descent to the unescapable end
At the bottom of the crystal artery

I push free


08. In The Eyes Of Time

Have you seen the fire in my eyes
Did you think it'd fade?
Have you felt the same inside
Did you ever think it would go away?

Behold the shadow world awake
Burning eye brought to defeat
Naked beneath the stars we are whole
Night silver makes us complete

As the strangle grip of another day yields
Darkness repaints these barren old fields
Where so many has stood before me
Watching the same star painted shield

Darkness embrace me
Night set this tired pale soul free
Darkness forgive me
Erase me

As the silver stars they hit me
This lunar spell completes me
In the cold distance now I see
Sweet eternity

In the eyes of time we are forgiven
In the eyes of time we are forgiven
In the eyes of time we are forgiven
In the eyes of time we are innocent

I'm a sulphur child infernal
No universe can host me
Lo and behold the liar
Lo and behold the fallen one
So many years spent in limbo
Eternity, a child compared to me

In the eyes of time we are forgiven
In the eyes of time we are innocent

As the strangle grip of another day yields
Darkness repaints these barren old fields
Where so many has stood before me
Watching the same star painted shield

Darkness embrace me
Night set this tired pale soul free
Darkness forgive me
Erase me

As the silver stars they hit me
This lunar spell completes me
In the cold distance now I see
Sweet eternity

Eternity...

Eternity


09. Across The Chasm

Clutching her legs in the pained caress
Tears cried for everything
Fall unseen

But you were never quite alone...

Dry your red cried eyes
Stay another while
Please...

Born from in shadows
Fuelled by their disdain
Solitude triumphant
The ones that wouldn't change

Into the fire
Into the world alit
We bring desire
The unspoken truth of slit wrists

Across the chasm
From unseen to majesty
Across the chasm
From ideals to atrocity

In truth you are
Perfection to envy gods
So undivine by choice
Sweet salty skin
With eyes of midnight skies
So frail her muted voice
So beautiful
To me

Rising from the shadows
Creatures so depraved
For aeons we hungered
We are the children of cain
So you were never alone!

Born in shadows
Fuelled by their disdain
Solitude triumphant
The ones that wouldn't change

Across the chasm
From unseen to majesty
Across the chasm
From ideals to atrocity

To me you are
Perfection to envy gods
So undivine by choice
Sweet angel kin
With eyes of midnight skies
So frail her muted voice
So divine

Dry your red cried eyes
Stay another while please...

Now let me just ask you
Did you ever feel out of place and always so alone
That they were right and that you always seemed to be so wrong
My dear
So did I
I just wonder
Well now who gave them all the rights when you seemed to have none
You are a precious soul in our twisted storm standing millions strong
Kära du
I hope their gods will forgive them

We're invoking the bliss of oblivion
The communion of lost souls
Sweet and sinful
Across the chasm of morals
Sweet and sinful
Away from their norms and strains
Into the sinful domain

Oh yes you are
Perfection to envy gods
So undivine by choice
Oh precious bird
With eyes of midnight skies
So frail your muted voice
So divine
