Have you ever seen her? Wearing black like a shroud See her gazing with glazed eyes Into a dying sun horizon Have you ever heard her? Screaming her lungs out Like a raven flock shrieks Piercing the ebony sky Cries for a dying life No words, only howls Tears for a wasted life No sweet, only salt Death wish woman, you are Surrounded by life, yet alone Death wish woman, come here Face your life, no escape Death wish woman, stay close Blind and deaf, muted Hands roped on the back Wait until this night dies And get touched by light Cries for a dying life No words, only howls Tears for a wasted life No sweet, only salt Death wish woman, you are Surrounded by life, not alone Death wish woman, stay here Face your life, don’t escape Death wish woman, stay close Tormented soul - take a step Choose your fate - open your eyes Inhale life - Breathe Death wish woman Life or death – a fragile balance Death wish woman One final step Or more to come

I’ve languished in a mausoleum of memories beneath the moss The bitter soil where we rest has drained away the glow of flesh Lead me into my suffering Hollow me with your burning gaze Leave me here to fade in the gloom & then depart in silent rain Your memory opened me I slowly tore apart my wilted skin The melody, like a funeral knell, of your laughter lacerated me Our epitaphs faded long ago The ghost of me wanders endlessly Shattered tombstones, blossoming woe I can hardly recognize you Every word is a shackle Every moment is a scar Every promise lies in ash Six stitches became the mark of fangs A maw flowed cardinal streams Your aroma of maple, sweet, still haunts this lifeless place still haunts this lifeless place still haunts this lifeless place… Here beneath this moss & ruin I rot in solitude I’ve become the negative space in a starless tapestry

I gaze into cosmic horizons Across waves of astral seas Beyond heaven realms Is where I long to be Long is the dark night In which we’ve gathered We search for a distant light That birthed our fathers I gaze into cosmic horizons Across waves of astral seas Beyond heaven realms Secret celestial keys From the edge of the universe On the darkest of nights they came Following the star-ways mapped long ago Beyond the stars our home calls out to me I gaze into cosmic horizons Across waves of astral seas Beyond heaven realms Secret celestial keys I gaze into cosmic horizons Across waves of astral seas Beyond heaven realms Is where I long to be

Aamun kirkkain sarastus painaa kasvoni maata vasten Sen odotan sulavan, kun kylmenee jo aika suven Ennen aikojaan lahoaa, juurta ylemmäs kasva en Kun viimein katseeni kurotan, katson yli valonsäteiden Aamuaurinko sokaisee, en tietäin näe Kun viimein palaan, laho on maa

Five stars of denial And flickering dreams In this cold slumber And bleeding walls I won't see. Five angles of perfection Of bodies aborted And sights distorted Through my lust and perversion I won't see Tonight I failed again Tonight we slept again In this fiery embrace Where we were left. Five days of cleansing The night is drawing near. Trying to find redemption Get rid of all this dirt. I won't tell… Five minutes of pureness Washing the days off. Sewing self -inflicted wounds While carrying the burden away. Tonight I've failed again (as the dusk's been kissing me) Together we've slept my friends (while stars have been watching us) The light of creation The morning of grace The flowering of life I won't see any of this.

I was surrounded by the snow, while the whole world slept unconscious. As a pale white blanket lashed by winds, this empty land lives in silence unseen. I woke up in a shiny crystal cavern, smelled the air as it scars my face. The closed ceiling as an icy casket, devoured and fed the beast within. I could not see, but rocks gathered around me, a deadly throne they seemed. Tried and went outside, I remember felt the pale sun on my withered skin. As far as my sight could go only a vast white I saw. Oh maiden of the snow, Of desires and sorrows your soil's the witness, as the wicked beauty of your nakedness awakes me. Wonderfully numb to clear crystal skies that dress up your misty mountains. Covered in a bear-skin's mantel I made it to the crest, not so far away from the ridgeline where ice melts into a dreamless ocean of evergreen meadows. And the sun's borrowed light dwelled all over the place. It was my gift. A sweet gift, with mournful eyes I tasted. Cause I know that everything ends right when it begins. And now I sit at the last glimpse of sunshine, watching my rocky cave from above. A last thing I remember, that lone burning ray. The setting sun lighting up your face, and your eyes so cold.

The city on the hill Calls me for herself Wants to own me Like all her empty souls That live inside her walls A digital slave horde Eternal fires in code The city breathes you in The city is their skin Human minds punished by a god AI, forged to hate in human flaws It will find you The city on the hill Wants me for herself The city breathes me in The city is my skin

strapped to this bed can’t move at all hear my last call I’ll sleep when I am dead all lined up outside my door an host of black dogs lying on the floor waiting for me to come out and play that’s what you get, no place to stay

On the scale of choice River curves and silence fear Put all in one What you call yourself In my dreams Blinding shining light Ashes is my home And in reflections - smoke Bridges on fire Heavy look and voice is gone Comfortably numb Rest is deep inside In my dreams Shining bright light My house is not the same Silt Flower is clean Doors or walls, which of them have you built? Anger, thirst, was grial bitter? Was it really worth it? You, the stepenwolves, awaited by magic theatre Who are you, what are you? Have you made a choice? Remember your way! Remember your names. Waves shall forgive the writing on sand What do you see? In a shiver of mirror Thousands of eyes

With every passing day I’ve endured my mistakes And cursed the failing light That is should forever fade I stand now in the ashes Of a world become a tomb Every thought, another grave Interred with memories of you Bury me in my agony Drown me underneath all that I’ve lost I’ve grown tired of the light Of holding on to ghosts And longing for lost days I’m faced with my failures When I close my eyes I’ll pray for all of this to end Lowered down Into the waiting Earth A veil of soil Concealing your pain One day I can only pray That time corrodes This memory of you Cast away From this grey world Into oblivion And constellations Take this Earth From beneath me “Iris!” “Please, come back to me!” “Come back to me!” I’ve grown tired of the light Of holding on to ghosts And, longing for lost days I’m faced with my failures When I close my eyes I’ll pray for all of this to end

Into the darkness we have drown Into the sadness we call home Hate and sorrow shape the horizon We are the Weepers of the Land In the silent night, you disappeared In the cold distance, painful memories With empty hands, and blood in my tears, The choking guilt I have to bear. Into the darkness we have drown Into the sadness we call home In the absence of your light This hollow form I wear Bereft of the hope a child brings Into the empty night I stare Hopeless in this land we call our own. Knees in dirt for my failure I atone. I could not hear your cries, or wipe your tears away. I could not comfort you I could not steal your pain Into the darkness we have drown Into the sadness we call home Hate and sorrow shape the horizon We are the Weepers of the Land We are the Weepers of the Land (x4)
