October Tide

Grey Dawn tracks

Lyrics


1. GREY DAWN

I painted with rain the sight of the daybreak,
As being in need of a momentary remake
The life I am leading is the way of depravity,
A threat th my already poisoned sanity

Grey dawn, everlasting

Hope is utopia for all that I know,
When counting the seconds time moves so slow
I can't feel any will to be part of this fight
A cure is however to put thrust in the night

I learn from this life to hide from humanity,
And night has told me how to kill my anxiety
The ghost of my smile dances in the pale,
And I know all my efforts most likely will fail




2. OCTOBER INSIGHT

The tales untold are true
Spirits of water circle above you
As you trespass the side of the fall
Drawn into darkness
Drawn by the call

Breathe in the night
An october insight
As you can see grey is not white
The land of the bleak has never been black
Once we are here we can never get back

Rain without end
This is a dead run
Desperately lacking the light of a sun
All it can be
A dead world revealed
Only to those who can never be free

Lost in the halflight
No colours appear
They're only a story, not even near
What is really the seemingly eternal fight
To dwell within this lesser kind of night




3. SWEETNESS DIES

These words I scream out loud
They vanich in the wind
And winters weight upon us
Has buried the life I knew

Life as on the walls
Has turned into the past
You know that I will wander
Through wind and rain, to ease my pain

I've seen my soul fall down
Sinking right into the past
Erasing all the signs of hope
Sweetness dies
Can never last

The scattered taste of death
Gets closer to my mouth
And the smell of blood
Lies thicker in the air
Than what it used to be
When you were still around
It's time for me to go
It's time to leave it's all I know




4. HEART OF THE DEAD

I have waited with patience for this moment to come
A promise, I expected not to be alone
When the wind of the dark comes enclosing us in
The whisper gets closer and I fake this grin
A stranger in town with a bloodshot eye
Sucked out my disease when I was said to die
I won't spend t he rest of my death underground
He laughed as I died, I am no longer bound

My heart is not red
This sea I've bled
I have sold my fucking soul to the dead
Their hunger is fed
The beast in my head
Heart of the dead
Heart of the dead

I left in the darkest hour
I'm tired of breathing rain
Still the night devours
Each and every inch of pain

No longer dressed in soil
A guardian of the black and the cold
Spirits of liars leading my way
No longer inferno
On earth I will stay




5. FLOATING

Uncontrolled riot
In my soul that is
Devastating fire
Please burn the way through this

All systems collapse in my inner sanctum
While I'm still alive
Then why postpone the thing that I hope for
The craving for an instant death
I'm crawling out of the filth that I live in
Only to see the sun
Sink below a dead horizon
This one and only time

Deep down the waters
A man who's made of guilt
Is floating out in the silence
The dead's laughter has built
And wherever I came from
I can't remember now
'Cause deep down the waters
I'm floating out to drown




6. LOST IN THE DARK (AND THEN GONE)

There's a white room in my dreams
A shot in the head
A head full of lead
That's the only way to survive
The only way to go ahead

There's a red room in the house
A room full of stains
Where nothing remains
Except for a mistreated soul
That is lost in the dark and then gone

I am screaming but noone can hear me
Then it's silent and silent is all
It can be 'cause this is a clean room
Except for the stains on the wall




7. INTO DEEP SLEEP

Dim the lights and sleep
Night has brought me here
You're falling far too deep
You're awake when I am near
My soul has lost this fight
I'm no longer on my own

Old companions ride tonight

Cold pale dawn
Defining the spirit alive at last
The sign of the fall
The burden upon me
The very last call

We're passing time my dear
The air is thick with all my fears
You know I wish you all the best
I'll put you here so you can rest




8. DEAR SUN
