Isis

In the Absence of Truth tracks

Lyrics


1. Wrists Of Kings

Now our blood
Travels though the
veins of our
history

It bursts forth them
Boiling black
clouds from the wrists of kings

The shadow
Lengthens as
time draws on its tendrils

Creep into mythic cracks
blending with the light of day

We see it
Now Before us
But even so we cannot
Read the lies between the lines

Bring them nothing
They have
Made it's way
The nights




2. Not In Rivers, But In Drops

Until your voice is heard

And still the arm
Shaken, shaken

Your voice
Still real

And so you say
Unto all

I am

Bring them down

World is waiting

Bring them down




3. Dulcinea

He is not mad
His thought is clearer than
The saner man

For in her he saw
Beauty overflowing
Through the tattered clothes

She was his queen
She is a queen

In dreams he
Wanders the dark
In search of her




4. Over Root And Thorn

Your reign is ever growing
Spreading like a moss

across rock, under sky, over roots and the thorns
your reach is ever growing, spreading like a moss




5. 1000 Shards

If only I could
Clear my eyes
Then I might breathe once more
Then I might breathe again

Old sun and stars,
And oceans below me
Gathered scribes over
Jaggad shards, under foot

Old sun and stars,
And oceans below me
Gathered scribes over
Jaggad shards, under foot

To slash to the sound
How many sit on woe or peril?
How many walk on their own?

Into the truth
Let myself burn
Now it's written
1000 shards




6. All Out Of Time, All Into Space (Instrumental)

7. Holy Tears

He was patient
Slow descent, chills the bones
His wait maybe long
Still he carries on
Always reaching for her
Always breathing for her
Lifting his hand to the sky
Slow change might bring
Holy tears
Upon his battered skull

Holy tears
Holy tears

He won't take the privilege
To know the crown




8. Firdous E Barden (Instrumental)

9. Garden Of Light

I fell asleep in
A world dressed in grey
Only to awake in
A garden divine

Their words
Sewn in

Hate was you

In the garden of light

You are the face of God

My light
My gift
