I hide my body away from the day Flesh and bone scattered on the frozen wind Desperate to hold every piece in place As the sunlight consumes me Awoken by a voice Scraping at my skin A storm of hunger and ecstasy Awaiting the nights cold embrace The moon hangs silent, shrouded in mist Carrier of pestilence, harbinger of dread I arrive in a haze of bloody delirium I am the plague that haunts the darkness Into the vastness of the abyss Free from the weight of your suffering Swallowed up by my hatred and the blood-stained earth The silence is broken Crawl out from the void That has stripped you of your faith Your god has abandoned you, my child In blackness, forever Never again Never again to feel the sun Cursed to exist in isolation A deathless disgrace Within your loathsome tomb In the throes of solitude Withered from famine This night, gods children will suffer She lay still Naked in death, for all to behold When all hope disappears The light won't find her here Awoken by a voice Scraping at my skin A storm of hunger and ecstasy Awaiting the nights cold embrace The moon hangs silent, Shrouded in mist Carrier of pestilence, harbinger of dread I arrive in a haze of bloody delirium I am the plague that haunts the darkness

Death comes smashing like a stone Aching heart is now alone In Nibelheim he haunts the halls The crumbling church forever calls us home Lilies sinking in a lake The suns descent at daybreak Shouting out to nothing in the dark Piercing the clouds heals no pain He’ll never see her face again In Nibelheim he haunts the halls Aching heart is now alone We share our world with ghosts of old Wingless birds that dare to fly Toothless vampires bled dry Shouting out to you in the dark Ghosts direct the play we share Spectres of the friends once there Its memories of you I’m shackled to Beyond this life I feel you waiting On the other side longing for rest Within this heart which beats for you Is a love pure longing for rest
3.
Abandonné dans l’abîme Où s’est éteinte la lumière Où se sont échoués les sons Où on a crevé l’écho Ici dans la neige, nul ne se souvient Ici où personne, personne ne répond Suspendu par un souffle Invisible, le vide, autour Mon coeur glacé à jamais Bientôt déshumanisé Grand corps mort gisant gelé

Arise first Eden The role of essence The halls of minds and dreams Held within The souls of time between Locked therein Sheds embrace Hand upon The vital polygon Forming Earth Strengthened stance Enchanting deepest glance Present scopes Gleaming limbs The hearts of seraphims The wisdomed ones From times undone As they lock away the entrance In present time we remain unbroken A pause in time held between the weald realm The ancient domain whist linked unknown The fortified structures sound Dawn of life, set aligned, intertwined The strands proceed, endlessly Like from a dream conceived Abdona Godess Listening Druantia Highness Shields thee Sheds embrace Hand upon The vital polygon Forming Earth Strengthened stance Enchanting deepest glance Present scopes Gleaming limbs The hearts of seraphims The wisdomed ones From times undone Now we move to fade through passage The final sight as we stray eternal The mystified circle’s ground Roads through ageless shrines Point to the veiled lines Dawn of life, set aligned, intertwined The strands proceed, endlessly Like from a dream conceived
7.
I am the bringer of storms I am the flesh searing kiss of holocaust winds Fair weather, farewell to you If only i could escape from this prison I'm in I sit, I ponder, awaiting the release When i cast vengeance upon thee The years pass as the pressure builds Global annihilation and I; sitting upon thy throne of death with pure glee Til then i wait I am the watcher in the center of the world Seeing all, calm almost silent As you are chaos all around me
8.
Forgotten Dethroned Devoid of all hope Unseen for the rest So easy is to lose So easy to fall from grace At the feet of a world, that tramples you day by day Lost in endless days Yearning worn old times Drained by sorrow My thoughts feed your madness And my soul drowns without solace Fades the sun, and fade the words Blind and speechless face off this open scar Slowly and gently, cradle me in your cold arms every night Oppresses me and whispers... Holocaust of a dying soul That clings to a meaningless life Screaming and bleeding from within Dismantling your poor existence Under a mantle of solitude Your life escapes through your fingers. Between my arms, once again Stranded in a strange world Anchored to past Drained by sorrow My acts feed your madness, one by one And my soul is drowning... Forgotten Dethroned Devoid of all hope Unseen for the rest So complicated to find A dying ember of light The sorrow embrace me AND TOGETHER WE HOLD THE WEIGHT OF THIS COLOSSAL WOUND
9.
Falling through the stars Drifting through the aether I forget my face and my name Velvet dark embrace Emptiness so rich Embrace of the hollowness I drown in its soft caress Carry me, the unseen river Through the interstellar void Towards the sweet oblivion Non-being i crave to enjoy The memories fade and disappear Traces of self wiped from the cortex In a whirlwind of colours Drawn to a bright shining vortex A drink of the water From this sacred current Heals all my wounds and my woes I will soon become As one with the cosmos My mind will dissolve In the transcendental light Waiting for eternal rest I raise my hand to reach the sun And brace my tired mind and soul For radiance that soon will come Hold me tight Clean my heart Swallow me Make me whole Shivers crawling up my spine Gentle touch of light divine Bliss is running through my veins Here forever i remain I am pulled back by the unseen cord It drags me through the world of hurt Deliverance was within my reach I'm back to my torment, there's no relief
10.
One sealed black window One only frame to the outside So many days, so many years Lost in this fading slumber You are connected, to the world above us This is a new step down in your life Follow your fate, unleash your mind You feel me time to time Every night you repeal your will Come... Come to me... Release yourself, let you dawn Forlorn in your cell There´s no daylight to hope All these voices you hear Like a child in a crowd Unblinded by your own fear You start to see by your eyes Spellbound by your new sense Unbind your chains Ride freedom, once again Leave your fears, reach the skies beyond Let yourself lead your insight Leave your fears, reach the skies beyond You´re no longer part of this world
11.
All shall perish In this valley of existence Between two perilous mountains Fate and freewill We are all lost souls in this valley Etched from the cliffs of time Down we fall from one side or another Reduced to sand In a stream of tears The fall of man This tragic play never ends This audience of fools The earth crumbling down And all that remains Desolation to be reborn We find our futile lives Trapped in this cylindrical tomb Buried in the past The bottom of the hourglass We are all lost souls in this valley Etched from the cliffs of time Down we fall from one side or another Reduced to sand While we weep The fall of man This tragic play never ends This audience of fools
12.
This life I lead Losing my way Forever dawn Forever grey Can someone Show me a way Forever dawn Left in the absence gone astray Lonely face in the mirror Staring back at me Empty eyes in the mirage of decadence Is this all a dream? I can’t feel my tongue to speak Is there anyone out there To find the words to get through to you Reach for the edge of empty space Get through to you from the other side We’re drifting apart Tearing at the seams Endlessly pacing There is no other way That I can hold onto our own I left to wander Searching for my truth The questions I’m asking Are signs of a semblance of vision of the end Of the end There is no fucking way i’ll hold onto my own Desperation, to look for help from above Will you find me If I scream for you Given the chance that I find A truth on my own Give me suffering Give me death Swallow my world in shame At least I fought At least I tried Forgive me Let me see Give me a torch as a light for the dark In sorrow In death The heralds sound There is hope There is strength From my wings I soar above the sky As a shining beacon guides the war
