Lyrics

1. PITY THE SADNESS

Sadness lives after we die
The pains of life increased outright
Contempt and sins priorities
To crush good fortune to it's knees
Morning...

Morning's calm, inside I cry
This painful life has raped my mind
Take me down, slow release
From sorrow's penetration
Morning...

Life is there for me
Hell is there for me

Sunlight greets my open wounds
Morning's light reflects the doom
My soul is free, it lives again
To roam alone in darkness
Morning...

I've cried for God
And I've cried for you
I pray that in the end your sense will break through

Sadness lives after we die
The pains of life increased outright
Contest my sins priorities
Crushed my spirit to its knees




2. THE WORD MADE FLESH

It looks to kill
And fails to wait in sight
It twists me from inside
Carry all, heal the sore, I can no longer bleed
What is this, thing I've been, you can set me free
The one I see, a blinded fool corrupting me
From within, worn away

Find, by mind, abusive ways
Allures me from restrain (I'd kill while others rape)
Create the obscene, you can set me free
Sense predicts the scorn
The hour of peace is gone
The one I see, a blind dead fool - Forever be
Burning me

Worn fools that prey
On a faith filled day
Laughter stays, out of my way
Pass through my dismay




3. MORTALS WATCH THE DAY

Plead forgiveness father
All my troubles fade from view
Pale the four walls surround
Have I madness in my eyes?

While mortals watch the day
Our fear will pave the way
Hidden until the end

See a room of crimson
Nothing I have seen before
Coldness wrapped around me
Struggle not, for Hell is here

While tyrants close the doors
Each one will know the score
Sorrow takes it all

Saved the sick of life's bliss
Charity of utmost guilt
Fear the blinded temper
It has lied it's way to you

While mortals watch the day
And light has turned to grey
What lies up ahead

Light shines into your eyes
That I'm blinded by, your eyes
Mortal throughout the days
Until we're saved

Turning to black
I can't see through this
No option from turning away
Will we see another day




4. AS I DIE

As I die

Stare as eyes uphold me
And wait to see right through
And curse me - The love has crippled you

Shadows haunt the night
Burning my disguise

Reaping through the truth
Life becomes untrue

Sin the last diversion
My fate will be untouched
Dismissed now, the anger of a fool

Shadows haunt the night
Forgive me as I die

Taking a chance
And take what you gain
My soul is has no price
Total release is out of harms way
Until I can decide
You punish me, can't you see, I'm not real
Tears are flowing free, passing by, as I die




5. SHADOWKINGS

A spiral movement, the ultimate mystery
Will you show... will you show who you are?

It's the truth that untrue suspicion
Is spreading like a disease
Do you know, do you know, if it's real?

Voices appear inside my brain
Their need, to set me free
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong

Encourage the madness they welcome impurity
I don't know... I don't know who I am
Fallen blind to the cruel hysteria
That's constantly challenging me
All alone... All alone can't be real

Voices approve I can't relate
Their need to celebrate
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong

Voice appear the quest begins
Fuel for the Shadowkings
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right from wrong




6. ONCE SOLEMN

Once solemn, the things I'm leaving alone
Once solemn, the looks that turn one to stone
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the panic inside
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the fake promises

Your powers electrify me
Your prowess repels apathy
Your image can turn your soul to stone

I can't find another way
I can't find the words to say...

Unchaining the thing that's holding me down
And it's frustrating, the pressure's getting me down
And I'm trying to live with a bad decision every day
It's a fever that's eating away in search of a fast release

Your powers electrify me
Devour the one that's guilty
Your image can turn a soul to stone

I can't find another way
I can't find the words to say...




7. YEARN FOR CHANGE

Approaching a silence
A blur of subsidence

Time may heal all troubles, is that what I've found?
Joy entices all, until death's lonely shroud
But I know it's forever

Praying for a change

Our lives leading onwards
The essence is stronger

Memories of life drifting further away
I must doubt that where there's a will there's a way
But I know it's forever

Praying for a change

Life is all the pain we endeavour




8. SWEETNESS

You have a history of holding back
A certain sweetness that I lack
Sensitive 'til the day of the final strike
Hatred coming on from greater heights

Won't you stay away
I'll pass away a different day
Won't you stay away
Don't hold it against me

Looking down on a rogue this lonely frame
It's predictable the killing game
The sickness knows not what feels right
You've gotta hold on to what feels right

Won't you stay away
I'll pass away a different day
Won't you stay away
Together it's impossible

I see blood on the robe

Cold hearts will still haunt you




9. EMBERS FIRE

A fallen time that's bygone
A crude elite that's from a distant zone
You'll turn a blind eye on what's brave
You don't know if it's the truth you told

Anger looks on the quiet dreaming
Seals the sense incandescent ones

Hold back desire for danger
A bet you'll lose you'll have no way to turn
I see the man who lives and breathes corruption
Into a circle that you call your own

Don't run away, from the pain, a claim that you deal with
A power game, from within, impossible for you to see this

Laid down the laws of deceit
The ones who cherish are the ones who'll go
Into the ashes of a tortured world
Only in mind's eye can you see a light

Harmony breaks, dark awakes, in old eyes - The trouble feel it
Here to stay, mark the way, improvise the judgement hearing

Anger looks on the quiet dreaming
Seals the sense incandescent ones

All remains of the glowing embers
Is a bleak cold irrelevance




10. REMEMBRANCE

I am the one, to which you'll go
You are the one, from which I'll run...

Fading to grey, the wanton pray

You'll find shelter, I'll find none
I'll leave your pointless life undone

Breaking your days, my anguish stays

Fate, fate of my laughter, the loss of your sight
Hate, hating the vicious lies, I will revel insane

I see your face, I've seen your face
I turn and run, you'll have no place

Time, time is the father, in my corrupt mind
Pain, echoes in a silent sky...
Remember life now?

Do you remember life now?




11. GOTHIC

Denying our restlessness
Frustrations tension eludes
The past was clean
When thoughts were mild
The present day horrors alive

Slowly passing timeless horrors

Lives within all fear
The mourning in my tears
Drown all the past
We've lived beneath these years
Awaiting for the call
For all life to expire
Passive to this day
To infinity we'll fail

The light is dim before us
Shadows appear and fall
A barrage of savage ways
Only the darkness can filter through...




12. MORTALS WATCH THE DAY

Plead forgiveness father
All my troubles fade from view
Pale the four walls surround
Have I madness in my eyes?

While mortals watch the day
Our fear will pave the way
Hidden until the end

See a room of crimson
Nothing I have seen before
Coldness wrapped around me
Struggle not, for Hell is here

While tyrants close the doors
Each one will know the score
Sorrow takes it all

Saved the sick of life's bliss
Charity of utmost guilt
Fear the blinded temper
It has lied it's way to you

While mortals watch the day
And light has turned to grey
What lies up ahead

Light shines into your eyes
That I'm blinded by, your eyes
Mortal throughout the days
Until we're saved

Turning to black
I can't see through this
No option from turning away
Will we see another day




13. WIDOW

You're breaking a chain
Lying until you can erase the past
Born with a look of deceit
Praying that all the bitter guilt's defeated
Born...

Stand on your own, killed from behind
Fools are blind, unwilling to accept, decline
You'll turn a blind eye

Bought by a sickening man
The weakened gather just as fast as they can
'Whore' is what the people roar
From fear of rejection you'll come back for more
Strong, don't see that love has ceased
In the end, only death can release

Stand on your own, killed from behind
Fools are blind, you're on a lonely road




14. ETERNAL

Why can't we hear
The time must come for us to leave here
Emotion has withered away
Our burnt out love has decayed

Obsessed to leave the Earth
Tragedy has overrun since birth

Now our righteous fathers weep
As we greet eternal sleep
Are we born to pass away?

Cry at all that remains
"Chosen Words" fail to sustain
The wisdom of powers heard
In dismal thoughts seemingly absurd

Now as hope and glory dies
We'll scream at our demise
Are we lost forever more?




15. JOYS OF THE EMPTINESS

Breathing here, and the air is clear
Changes of which I could forsee

Violence caressing, impending distress
As my body lay sleeping, eternally bleeding, and...

Shallow despair, broken years cannot repair
Summoned here, and all must see the hypocrisy
Peel back the face, the sorry mind, a vacant space
Born deprived, the moods expired in reality

A fantasy based on harmony
A victim released accordingly

Scatter the ashes, remains of life's passages
Mocking and meaningless, joys of the empty, and...

Mighty and proud, reaching up to touch the shroud
Tangled here, and far beyond from atrocity
Frozen and cold, bleak the memories of old
Times capsize the born desires for technology




16. AS I DIE

As I die

Stare as eyes uphold me
And wait to see right through
And curse me - The love has crippled you

Shadows haunt the night
Burning my disguise

Reaping through the truth
Life becomes untrue

Sin the last diversion
My fate will be untouched
Dismissed now, the anger of a fool

Shadows haunt the night
Forgive me as I die

Taking a chance
And take what you gain
My soul is has no price
Total release is out of harms way
Until I can decide
You punish me, can't you see, I'm not real
Tears are flowing free, passing by, as I die




17. TRUE BELIEF

Wretched will, host of pleasure surreal
Closed the room where the last is buried
Rise or fall at your master's request
You're unable to accept redemption

I don't know about a true belief here
With the lost it's the same as always

All I want is the same
All I want is a true belief

You can't wait to become a memory
With the weak it's the same as always
Stand confused lack of comprehension
Re-aroused by a thought of madness

And I know that the truth is always right
But it's time to search for lies
You're the one I try to save
But the blood spills from your veins

All I want is the same
All I want is a true belief

Call counting time 'til the end
Death's wicked smile never fails
The curse is cast and you've lost the past forever more
A candle burns here no more

I don't know about a century of life
When the love of generations die
I can see no good in taking your own life
When any moment death calls

All I want is the same
To be part of the game
All I want is a true belief




18. PITY THE SADNESS

Sadness lives after we die
The pains of life increased outright
Contempt and sins priorities
To crush good fortune to it's knees
Morning...

Morning's calm, inside I cry
This painful life has raped my mind
Take me down, slow release
From sorrow's penetration
Morning...

Life is there for me
Hell is there for me

Sunlight greets my open wounds
Morning's light reflects the doom
My soul is free, it lives again
To roam alone in darkness
Morning...

I've cried for God
And I've cried for you
I pray that in the end your sense will break through

Sadness lives after we die
The pains of life increased outright
Contest my sins priorities
Crushed my spirit to its knees
