Track Name: The Dying Of The Light
GREYING, BLEEDING, FRAYING, FAILING. SLIGHTLY COLDER, GROWING DARKER, ONLY I CAN SEE. THE EARTH, IT INCHES FARTHER FROM THE SUN INTO THE SEA. THE DARK STABS UP IN DAGGERS SLASHING DEEP AGAINST THE LIGHT; THE DAY CHAINED ON ITS KNEES PRESENTS ITS SWORD, TRIUMPHANT NIGHT. I AM NOW THE SUM OF ALL THE DEMONS THAT INFEST; A CANCER OF MY OWN CONSTRUCT AND BUILT IN SELF DEFENSE. NO MOON, NO STARS. BLACKED AND RIPPED OUT FROM THE SKY. NO DAWN, NO DAY. FLY THE BANNER OF TRUE NIGHT. GREYING, BLEEDING, FRAYING, FAILING, ROTTING, FADING, DROWNING... I CAN FEEL THE SUBTLE CHILL IN THE BREEZE THAT RUSHES BY, THE ONLY LIGHT THAT TOUCHES A DYING SUN LOST TO LIFE. I CAN HEAR THE DIMMING OF THE SOUND OF RAMPANT LIFE AS
I CRAWL ON THROUGH THE ASHES TOWARDS THE DYING OF THE LIGHT.
Track Name: Circle Of Salt
HOLLOW NOW, NO WARMTH EXHALED. EYES WILL NOT, LIGHT HAS FAILED. SLEEP, DONT DREAM. NOTHING MENDS. NERVES
ARE KILLED, BURIED WITH FRIENDS. AFAR, APART, BELOW, BESIDES.REACH, CANT FEEL. SEARCH, CANT FIND. ARMS ARE NUMB,THESE HANDS ARE DEAD AND GREYING NOW; BLACKENING. I WANT PAIN AGAIN, I CANT CRY, WHY CANT..? IT WONT BLEED. I CANT BLEED. THERE WAS HEAT AND LIGHT AND DAY. THERE WAS LIFE, THERE WAS "THEY". GRANITE COLUMNS STRIPPED AWAY. WHAT REMAINS? WHAT AM I? IT DOESN'T SLOW AND IT DOESN'T END. SLEEP, DON'T DREAM BUT NOTHING MENDS. IT NEVER GETS BETTER.
Track Name: Crippling Despair
STATIC AND GLACIAL IN YOUR EYES. FROZEN, BENEATH A STARLESS SKY. GRANITE, MY WILL HAS BLED WITH TIME. SHATTERED TO THIS FATE I AM RESIGNED. I DARE NOT LIFT MY GAZE UPON, FEAR NOW CLAIMS REIGN OVER ALL I HAVE BECOME. I AM NOTHING MORE. I WANT NOTHING MORE. THESE BINDS, SO PRECIOUS TO ME, AS VEINS AND ARTERIES. YOUR BINDS, SO PRECIOUS TO ME, VEINS THAT MAKE YOU AND I "WE". YOU, YOU ARE THE STARLESS SKY OVER MY ENDLESS NIGHT. I FREEZE IN BLACK, ABSENT OF YOUR LIGHT. SURRENDERED, I HAVE BLED MYSELF WITH TIME. HOLLOW, I AM NOTHING IN YOUR EYES.
Track Name: Sunlight
DID I..? WERE YOU HELD JUST A BIT TOO HARD IN MY ARMS, WERE YOU KEPT JUST A BIT TOO LONG? IS IT MORNING AGAIN? SO COMES THE SUN, SO GOES YOUR EYES, WERENT THEY MINE? YOU RISE TO YOUR FEET, WIPE THE SOIL FROM YOUR KNEES, BOUND AWAY WITH THE BREATH FROM MY CHEST AS I LAY VEXED. IS IT MORNING AGAIN? GOD DAMN THE SUN. WHAT CALLS TO YOU THAT YOU CANT REFUSE? IS IT TRUE? DID I PROCLAIM JUST A BIT TOO LOUD? MERELY A BEAST WHO LOVES ONLY AS A BEAST KNOWS HOW. DIDN'T YOU WANT A GUN? BROKEN, BEATEN, NO LIGHT, NO SUN. DIDN'T I DESTROY THEM ALL AS YOU CALLED? NOW YOUR FEET ARE FIRMLY PLANTED JUST THE WAY I SHOWED YOU HOW. LOOK AT YOU NOW: STRAIGHT AND TALL AND WITH ME LEFT ON THE GROUND. IS IT MORNING AGAIN? HERE I LAY COLD AND SUPINE WITH MY MIND. NAILED DOWN IN YOUR SHADOW, LOOK HOW EASILY YOU FLEE. SOMETHING HANDSOMER NOW, IT'S NO LONGER A BEAST THAT YOU NEED. DID I..? WERE YOU HELD JUST A BIT TOO HARD IN MY ARMS? WERE YOU KEPT JUST A BIT TOO LONG?
Track Name: Unbaptized
UNCLEAN, CRUSHED UNDERNEATH. A BROKEN IDOL THAT I ONCE BELIEVED. I AM OUTCAST, I AM OBSOLETE. ONLY SHADOW AND LIE LEFT SURROUNDING ME. THIS IS NOT MY HOME, THERE WILL BE NO PEACE. I HAVE BEEN CAST OUT, I AM MARKED DECEASED. THIS IS NOT MY HOME, I WILL HAVE NO PEACE. I AM LOST, KNOW NO WHERE ELSE, MY ONE PLACE OF PEACE NOW THE COLDEST HELL. THESE HAUNTED HALLS IN WHICH I HAVE BLED, ONCE KEPT ME WHOLE NOW JUST ANOTHER DEATH. I FEEL THEIR EYES DRAG OVER ME, MY THOUGHTS RACE, ITS CRIPPLING. I BREATHE, I KNOW WHERE I STAND. I CAN COUNT MY FRIENDS ON ONE FUCKING HAND. LEACHES AND SHEEP ON THEIR HANDS FEAST ON THE CORPSE MINDLESS AND WEAK. POISON THE AIR WITH THE WORDS THAT THEY SPEAK, I CHOKE ON THE FILTH, I CANT FUCKING BREATHE. CORRUPTED, INFECTED, TAKE THE SHAPE OF SOMETHING REAL. THE SOULLESS AND CROOKED, THEY BURN AND THEY STEAL. PUSHING THROUGH THORNS AND THE BLADE OF THEIR KIND. A CURSE AND A CRUTCH; A SHALLOW GRAVE THAT IS MINE. I WALK THIS EARTH-UNBAPTIZED. I HAVE NO HOME-UNBAPTIZED. I STAND ALONE-UNBAPTIZED. I'LL BE LAID LOW-UNBAPTIZED.
Track Name: A Quiet Corner
JAWS CRACK AND BLEED. KNIVES REPLACE THE TEETH. IN THE DEPTHS AND BLACK I HAVE FOUND HEAT. FORGOTTEN FIRE HELPED ME SEE. THE DOOR WILL CLOSE, THE GATE WILL SEAL. THE BEAST OF DREAMS TO BE MADE REAL. ALL THAT LAY BEFORE LAID TO REST. ONLY PREY, ONLY DEATH. AS IT WAS SUMMONED, IT WILL BREATHE. A SILENT REIGN, INSIDE OF ME. THE FLESH CRACKS AND TEARS AND BLEEDS.DAGGERS RISE AND STAB, IT SCREAMS. AT LAST MY SOUL WILL FIND ITS SLEEP, MY MIND CAN REST, MY HEART WILL EASE. THE QUIET CORNER THAT I SEEK, AT LAST WILL RISE SURROUNDING ME.THE JAWS CRACK AND BLEED, KNIVES REPLACE THE TEETH.
Track Name: Send Me Down
SEND, SEND ME DOWN, PUSH ME DEEP AND FAR BENEATH THE GROUND. SOMEWHERE COLD AND ABSENT OF LIGHT. POINT MY WAY I SEEK ONLY TIME. SEND ME DOWN, SOMEWHERE COLD WHERE I CANNOT BE FOUND. I HAVE RUN AS FAR AS CROOKED LEGS WOULD RUN AND FALL HARD IN THE BLOOD, THE EARTH AND THE SNOW. I HAVE BLED, BLED WITHIN SECONDS OF DROPPING COLD SMILING WIDE, WIDE AS AN OCEAN OF FAITH AND HOPE. HOLD ME DOWN, FILL MY LUNGS, LET ME DROWN. I HAVE BETRAYED STOLEN AND SLAIN BECAUSE YOU WOULD HAVE IT SO. RETURNED TO THE SHADE, RETURNED TO THE BLADE IN DEFENSE OF YOUR BROKEN HOME. BEATEN AND SHUNNED, NOW BUT A GUN EMPTY AND ROTTING OUT. AN ABSTINENT FOOL, A ZEALOT FOR YOU; ABANDONED AND BROKEN DOWN. HOLD ME DOWN. FILL MY LUNGS, LET ME DROWN. TIE ME ON HIGH, OPEN THE LINES, SPILL THIS FILTH OUT. LAY ME LOW, ROLL OVER THE STONE AND LIGHT THE GROUND BEHIND. BURN WHAT REMAINS OF MY WRITTEN NAME AND COMMIT MY FACE TO TIME.HOLD ME DOWN.
Track Name: VIII
YOU STAND THE CAUSE OF IT ALL. YOU ARE THE LOCUSTS THAT FALL, YOU LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND. HOLLOW AND BARELY ALIVE, YOUR LIPS DRANK ME DRY, NOW I STRUGGLE TO RISE. I SAW YOU COME AS THE DAWN BRINGING LIGHT BRINGING WARMTH; AN INFERNO DISGUISED. YOU SUMMON SORROW AND SIN AND I LET YOU IN; NOW I ROT WITH MY PRIZE. YOU ARE A LEGION IN BLACK, I GAVE ALL, ALL I HAD, YOU WERE NOT SATISFIED; LEFT IT BURNT TO THE GROUND. LEFT ME DEAF FROM THE SOUND OF YOUR TREACHEROUS CRIES. NOW I STALK THE ASHES OF THIS POISONED EARTH, INHALING ONLY SMOKE OF YOUR POISONED WORDS. NOTHING TO BE SALVAGED, STOLEN DIGNITY. NO FLESH, NO BLOOD, NO SANITY. ALONE I'M FORCED TO SUFFER IN MY AGONY. THE DEMISE I MYSELF HAS HAVE CALLED FORTH IS THE END OF ME.
Track Name: She Upon The Black Wolf
ANDRAS. HOLD ME. SING TO ME, THE WEAKNESS OF THEM ALL. GIVE TO ME THE ANSWERS TO BRING ABOUT THEIR FALL. ANDRA-INANYA I BEG OF YOU YOUR COST. CAST ALL WHO STAND AS TRAITORS INTO CHAOS AND BEYOND. ALL CRACKS WITHIN THEIR ARMOR; BLESS ME WITH THEM ALL. ALL 30 MIGHTY LEGIONS RISING TO YOUR CALL. WHISPER TO ME ANGEL,THE ANSWERS THAT I SEEK TO CRUSH ALL MY BETRAYERS. SEE THEM LAID BENEATH MY FEET. ALL THAT I WILL OFFER, ALL ILL EVER BE. I KNEEL BEFORE YOU ANDRAS, BESTOW THESE GIFTS ON ME. SHE, UPON THE BLACK WOLF GIVE YOUR SWORD TO ME. ANSWER ME THE RIDDLES OF MY ENEMY. I AM YOUR ZEALOT, I AM BEGGING THIS OF THEE. SHOWER UPON THEM CHAOS AND ANARCHY. ANDRAS, HOLD ME. PULL ME TO YOUR SIDE, LIGHT THE WAY I CANNOT FIND.
Track Name: Bones To Dust
INSTRUMENTAL
Track Name: Sunset
HOW YOU STAND SO PROUD TOWERING OVER ME? YOUR SHADOW FREEZES ALL AS FAR AS I CAN SEE. THE GAME YOU WOVE AS TORTURE ALWAYS MOCKING ME. MY ONCE DEEPEST FEAR, TAKING ALL LEAVING ME. THE MORE I LIVE TO LEARN, THE LESS I KNOW AT ALL; INCHING TOWARDS THE FATE YOU’VE DESIRED ALL ALONG. NOTHING BRINGS ME CLOSURE, SILENCE, OR RELIEF. I ONLY KNOW CONFUSION, DISCONTENT MY MISERY. TIME AND TIME AGAIN DENIED A MOMENT'S PEACE OF MIND, A SINGLE SECOND'S SILENCE OF MY THOUGHTS; A TREASURE YOU DECLINE. SUNSET. MY WAKING, WALKING HOURS SPENT IN PRISON INFINITE. UNDEFINABLE AFFLICTION SPREADS THROUGH ALL THAT LIES WITHIN. SUNSET, DRAGGING ME TOWARDS EMPTINESS. SUNSET, ON I MARCH WITHOUT REGRET. SUNSET, PULLING ME TOWARDS EMPTINESS. SUNSET FURTHER I FALL WITHOUT REGRET. CALL ME HOME.
