01. Bleed In My Arms

Music by Laihiala & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Laihiala
No, you don't want me to be there…
To kiss your eyes, caress your hair… or kill that pain away
As pain is my companion, solitude my guide
Your sweet affection solely offers me a threat I cannot abide


Yet you'll lose yourself in me… in me

Bleed in my arms wounds within
Fall from grace as I offer you sin
Sacrifice yourself so frail…
This pseudo-love is as good as betrayal


So place your love in the palm of my hand…
where temptation lies within… that something you've yet to feel
And as I close my fist and awake your sleeping fears
Without forbearance I will quench my thirst of your crimson tears

You've lost yourself in me… in me

Bleed in my arms wounds within
Fall from grace as I offer you sin
Sacrifice yourself so frail…
This pseudo-love is as good as betrayal

Weep for promises which all died
A drop of tear for every lie
Love forever torn away…
I am only to cherish your pain

…I am only to cherish your pain…


02. Home In Despair

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
Again the sky has fallen down on me
Once more a world has crumbled down and over me

And yet in some twisted way
I enjoy my misery
And in some strange way
I have grown together with my agony

I feel home in despair for I dwell in grief
and I feel home when the air's too thick to breathe
and I feel home anywhere human lives are going down the drain

For as long as I remember life has been hard
I guess they have "misery" written somewhere in my stars

For I have mourned for so damn long…
that I've forgotten what it was for
Everything has gone so wrong
that I really couldn't think of anything more

I feel home in despair for I dwell in grief
and I feel home when the air's too thick to breathe
and I feel home anywhere human lives are flowing down the drain

I feel home in despair for I dwell in grief
and I feel home when the air's too thick to breathe
and I feel home anywhere the light of day is drowned in heavy rain

Yet I know the worst is still to come


03. Fragile

Music by Lopakka & Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
So many times I have brought you down
that I have already lost all count
and I seem to be doing it again
No matter how hard I have tried
I have crumbled time after time
and kept failing in the end

Sometimes it feels it would be better for you all
If I ceased to exist or was never born at all

So many times I have let you down
shadowed the shine of our sun
and drowned you in tears and misery
that it is hard for me to see
how you can after all these years
still be standing by me

Sometimes it feels it would be better for us all
If I ceased to exist or was never born at all
Sometimes it feels it would be easier to fall
than to flutter in the air with these wings so weak and torn


04. No More Beating As One

Music by Laihiala & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Laihiala
She was no longer precious to me…
I guess my hate grew much stronger than my love for her ever did
(I was) so tired of chasing that person who made me feel loved
and as we were embracing I cut and spilt the dearest blood

I'm praying for her soul as this blood on my hands stains me whole…

You were my life, from you I fed of
And now parted by knife - the suicide of our love
So callous and frigid was that stillborn soul…
yet no other half could ever make me whole

You promised: "…'til death do us part", and then you made a stone of my heart

And with the last rays of the setting sun the loveless pulse fades away
No more beating as one, no longer burns the flame

Gone are the times when I felt alive
Gone are those nights with you by my side
And now here I stand as the shadows grow deep…
With the death on my hand at your grave I weep

We were one yet not the same…
Once passion abundant, now pain

And with the last rays of the setting sun the loveless pulse fades away
No more beating as one, no longer burns the flame

…Love laved with stillness like the grave in my heart
and all the reasons huddled in your seeping blood…

And with the last rays of the setting sun the loveless pulse fades away
No more beating as one, no longer burns the flame
And with the last rays of the setting sun she bled her love away
No more beating as one, no longer burns the flame


05. Broken

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
I have come a long way where I started from
but I'm still not even close to where I'm going
(and now) I can no longer see the shine
that has been lighting up my way
I cannot feel its glowing

The fire in my heart is dying
and the zeal I had is gone

This path that I've chosen's a rocky one
Long, hard and frozen it has become
Each turn that I've taken on the way
has only led me back to Hell
I am dying down… growing weaker now
It could seem that I'm doing fine
but I'm broken to little pieces deep inside

Why did I ever choose to go this way
The question I keep asking myself all the time
I guess it was my instinct for self-destruction
that pointed me down this way

The fire in my eyes is dying
and the dream I had is gone

This path that I've chosen's a rocky one
Long, hard and frozen it has become
Each turn that I've taken on the way
has only led me back to Hell
I am dying down… growing weaker now
It could seem that I'm doing fine
but I'm broken to little pieces deep inside


06. Killing Me Killing You

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
Baby, have you seen, there is a snake in our paradise
A serpent that's wriggling between us
and freezing our feelings to ice

And with each drop of blood we bleed because of this
something so precious dies and it feels it really is...

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Darling, do you feel, there is a storm coming our way
The burning light between us is already starting to fade
The fire in our hearts is smothered by the rain
and the crimson flame of passion turns into something gray

And with each drop of blood our shattered hearts ever bleed
something so precious dies and is lost eternally

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Each teardrop from your eyes
makes something inside me die
Each of these days that draws us part
takes a piece from my heart

Kill me kill me kill me again with your love
and chase the storm away
Bring me bring me bring me the end with your love
and haunt the demons away

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Kill me kill me kill me again with your love
and chase the snake away
Bring me bring me bring me the end with your love
and haunt the serpent away


07. Dead Moon Rising

Music by Lopakka/ SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
The darkness comes out of her shell…
Yet another cold night in Hell with all the pain
The dying light is losing its glow
And my last glimmer of hope now fades away

It is starting to rain again
I'm coming closer to my end with every breath
The creepy shadows are growing pale
And the rising glow brings along the sense of death

I can feel Her presence now

Dead Moon Rising…
Bleeding red light over the sea
-I hope this time She came for me
-I hope this time She sets me free

My wounds are open wide
The freezing wind blows right inside and feels like ice
The eerie glow fires up the sky
And She takes away my sight with Her shine

I can feel Her all around

Dead Moon Rising…
Bleeding dead light over the sea
-I hope this time She came for me
-I hope this time She sets me free

Dead Moon Rising…
Bleeding dead light over the sea
-I hope this time She came for me
-I hope this time She sets me free


08. The River

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
Yet another morning
that feels like this
Yet another life's bitter kiss

It has been like this for… I don't know how long
I only know that at some point
it all went wrong

I don't remember much from last night
but still far more than I would like to

I'm floating downstream that damned river again

What can I do now except continue
and open a bottle once more
What can I do now except see this through
and float with the stream, off the shore
- see where the river will take me

When I needed you, you weren't there…
now I need booze like I need the air that I breathe

With each drink I'm drifting further away from your world
the further off I get the harder it will be to return

It has been like this for… I don't know how long
I only know that at some point
it all went wrong

Floating downstream that damned river again
The river that's distilled from premium grain

What can I do now except continue
and open a bottle once more
What can I do now except see this through
and float with the stream, off the shore
- see where the river will take me
- see where the river will take me


09. One More Day

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
It feels that your love for me
is slowly turning to dust
It seems that our union made of iron
is starting to rust

I hate life
I hate this shit
I love you and I hate myself
I hate our world
and everything in it
I hate loving you
I hate
I hate

Give me a reason to live
one more day
Let me just once more feel
your light through the rain

It feels that my love for you
is eternal, never-ending
but it seems that you're not receiving
what I have been sending

I love life
I love this shit
I love you and I hate myself
I love our world
and everything in it
I love loving you
I love
I hate

Give me a reason to live
one more day
Let me just once more feel
your light trough the rain

Give me a reason to live
one more day
Let me just once more feel
your love through the pain


10. With Bitterness And Joy

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
It has now spread itself all over inside me
all the way to the brain and down to my knees
My time comes closer with each day it lets me see
- with each night the pain keeps me from sleep

Life has given me much - maybe taken more
but those good times were always worth waiting for
When it's time for goodbyes I will leave grieving and yet so relieved
with bitterness and joy

Pleasure and pain; Heaven and Hell - my memories
What a long and strange trip this has been for me
What a short and strange life this has been

It has given me much - maybe taken more
but those good times were always worth waiting for
When it's time to take leave of this world
I will leave with bitterness and joy

What a long and strange trip this has been for me
What a short and strange life this has been

It has given me much - maybe taken more
but those good times were always worth waiting for
When it's time for goodbyes I will leave grieving and yet so relieved
with bitterness and joy

Life has given me much - maybe taken more
but those good times were always worth waiting for
When it's time to take leave of this world
I will leave with bitterness and joy


11. My Heart Is Slowing Down

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
I gave and gave - gave all I had
I took and took - all I could grab
I had it all and I had none
Now the game is over and it's all gone

My heart is worn out to keep beating
My lungs exhausted by all this breathing
My mind's too tired to keep grieving

I was against and I was for
I wanted less and wanted more
I won I lost, I lost and won
Now it's all over and I am done

My throat is too sore for more screaming
My eyes too swollen for more weeping
My wounds are too dry for more bleeding
My blood too drained for more streaming

My heart is slowing down

Long short is life is short and long
Strong weak am I am weak and strong
My crop is ready for the Reaping
My being ready for releasing

My heart is slowing down
