01. Hour Of Reprisal

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
Your empty promises have left only ruin
The deepest truths through silence now spoken
Your coldness cruel will never be forgiven

Murderer of
Heart and spirit
Fate not fire insures this
Torment you shall inherit

Judas bitch, the greatest sin is that of betrayal
When the cold sharp blades of conscience call
Neither penance nor mourning can avert reprisal

Murderer of
Heart and spirit
Fate not fire insures this
Torment you shall inherit


02. Destroyer Of Solace

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
From the first moment, a pawn in your hands
Conceded myself to your sovereignty
Naked desire, no rampart withstands
Seduced by the illusion of true beauty
Deep I drank of your poisonous eyes
The silk of your skin fed dependency
Yielded myself to your promise of lies
Your "love" was nothing but witchery

Nothing but black witchery
Despair was your ecstasy

Destroyer of solace
Destroyer of me

Long where the nights of perpetual black
Writhing in torturous agony
Knowing that you would never come back
To cure the addict you have made of me
A victim of your vicious disguise
Princess of hell set me free
Yielded myself to your promise of lies
Your "love" was nothing but witchery

Nothing but black witchery
Despair was your ecstasy

Destroyer of solace
Destroyer of me

Cold heartless witch of hell
I lost myself to your spell
You turned my heart to stone
But at the stake you'll atone


03. Obsessions Now Effigies

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
Without a word you disappeared
Into your cold like dust of those long dead
Severing the once cohered
Upon our graves I've wept and I have bled

Were you ever really here?

After all how could you leave me here?
You knew that which I feared the most:
To be alone and left arrear
With nothing but your ghost

My love is just a ghost


04. Unplenitude

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
Aging branches
Reach for the warmth of life
Fleeting from the cerement
Of ice

Unplenitude

So brittle, they'd break
Beneath the ashes of autumn
Weak with the weight
Of eternal tears

Unplenitude


05. To Grieve Forever

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
To think of forever knowing that we are worlds apart
To awake in tears and blades in heart

This is to grieve forever

To know you mean nothing to the one who meant everything
To know in your heart you'll always be alone

This is to grieve forever


06. Saturn And Sacrifice

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
Predestined to suffer
A life of loneliness
Bearing the sorrow and sin
Agonizing death a compelled catharsis

I've crucified myself for you
With every tear-stained page
Reprising the role of the damned
Every time I've bled upon the stage

No blessed mother weeps for me
As the nails split to the bone
A supposed savior of souls
Yet I cannot save my own

I've crucified myself for you
With every tear-stained page
Reprising the role of the damned
Every time I've bled upon the stage

Scourged at the pillars of mockery
Broken and bleeding and crowned in thorns
Pierced by the spears of destiny
Bursting the heart of the forlorn

The call of the dawn rang thrice
And you had forsaken me
To die with a heart of ice
By the nails of prophecy

Banished from paradise
Into my hell so deep
Remember my sacrifice
Whenever heaven weeps


07. Finality

Music & lyrics by While Heaven Wept
I'd spent a lifetime reaching for the stars above
Yearning for the one who I'd always dreamed of
Then you came to me in winter's cold slumber
An angel with eyes glowing embers

My one, my all
I'd do anything for you my love
My heart belongs to you
I concede my soul to you
I will die loving you

Deathlike silence darkened summer's dawn
I'd awakened from the dream to find you had gone
To hold an angel, nothing but futility
The more I reach for you, the further you were from me

My one, my all
I'd do anything for you my love
My heart belongs to you
I concede my soul to you
I will die loving you
Oh my love
I don't know how to let you go

If only I could have held you one last time
Before you closed your eyes and spread your wings to fly away
If only you could hear me now, I wish I had the chance to tell you
Everything I never had the chance to say:

Take my heart as you leave for I'll need it no more
I'll crawl the darkness of hell while through heaven you'll soar
May you find peace and happiness into the light transcend
I'll spend my last days in sorrow alone until the end
