Lyrics


1. DEVOID OF REDEMPTION

The old man approached the river
His gray head hanging low
His frail bones, tired and weakened
Stepped beyond the shore into the cold

And he knew there is no hope for redemption
No mercy would fall upon his wretched head
A wicked soul, who did no long to see the sunrise
With sullen heart, he cursed the churning waves around him

Swept into the dark, too late to return, he breathed in
From the emptiness, fear rose up in his throat
And then he knew

No more time, no more breath
No more hope, no more dawn
Only void




2. THE LEGEND

As I gaze from my tower, I can see him
Lurking, watching
Flickering in the gloom-light of funeral pyres

Immortal spectre, waiting in the shadows
For his time to emerge and close my eyes forever
Who is this figure, shrouded in the veil of death?
Why does he seek me
To inflict his curse upon my head?

From beyond the realm of man
He speaks with words like thunder
Casting condemnation upon my wounded soul
No more to breathe the air, to feel the warmth of summer
As I start to slip away
I know my time has come




3. THE SENTINELS

(No lyrics available)




4. OPEN VEINS TO A CURTAIN CLOSED

Fatum vestri vita
The end of everything
The end of myself
Razor find a way
Slice the veins
Bleed it all away
Stomach slit wide
Hung with a noose of my own intestines

Passed
Laid to rest with final wounds
Nothing more to take
Surrender
Release
Self surgery
Explain to none
The reasons
Open veins to a curtain closed
Left to be found
Perfectly shamed

Cornered in a cold room
Fallen
Cannot raise me
Skin is scoured
Raw but unclean
Unfeeling
Wet
Red sleep
Can and shall release

Lowest point of being
A wound erupting
Masterpiece of my despair
No decipherable expression heard
As arms fall, the blood screaming
Singing
Of a world drawn in

Mind's eye projecting
Blinding light on curtains closed
The audience unseen
Unseeing
Theatre of the defeated
A numb performance culled from memory's imprint
For a standing room unaware

Ascend!

Sinking, I will die for this (for you)




5. CUT-UP, DEPRESSED AND ALONE

Carving... my skin
Reveals... the face... of... tragedy

Better... to feel
The pain... fully
Than to drift
In the emptiness

Between nothing
And sadness

Cut up
Depressed
Alone

Wounds as deep (as any) burial
(And) sorrow deeper than any wound
I gave (myself)
Thicker than any scar
I left
For me
There is no hope

Left alone in here
For there is no escape
A life painted with blood (and loss)
The wrists to my freedom welcome razors edge

And these wounds of mine will never fucking heal
All that's left is loneliness, there's nothing left to feel




6. AN ACHE FOR THE DISTANCE

You just gave it all away
Half seas over
Your gate swings open, angles collide

For a bit of calico, heavy sugar
Now our lips are numb, angles align

My heart lies far away from here (my heart....lies far away)

I follow the open road into her arms, the sun burns out.




7. HOLES IN THE DESERT

Now let me bring you to your knees again
A gentle noise whispered by sharpened tongues
In my absence, I've been waiting to wake you up
So step back while i demonstrate the end of time

Its enveloped my senses
My voice cant explain (Let me go)
The earth-rise at midnight
That paints the terrain

With colors and shapes
And vibrations that shake
My entire awareness
Alive and awake

We've been here before (as i recall)
And we've traveled the stars (your famous last words)
But now we're caught up in (we never saw)
The most galactic of wars (what was before our eyes)

It's time to remember
Its time that we feel
The light we created
To nurture and heal

Now let me show you how empty we are
Our weak breath, lack of spine and broken teeth
My existence has been greatly fabricated
Look away, we're about to go up in flames

As i recall your famous last words
"We never saw what was before our eyes"

Can you believe we ever even tried?
How could we have ever known?
Far beyond the dust and debris




8. PREPARE THE GROUND

One hundred thousand
Repetitions
Recite the mantra
Flowers unfold
Loosen the grip
Undo the fiction
Release the power
Trapped in the story

One hundred thousand
Thousand million thoughts
Streams of tomorrow
Drowning this moment
Loosen the noose
Release the bonds
Breathe in the power
Of no tomorrow

This mystery never ends
Angels and demons smiling
Embrace the burial mound
Prepare the ground

One hundred thousand
Nightmares obscure
The precious knowledge
Form is illusion
Loosen the noose
Release the bonds
Breathe in the power
Held in this moment

Prepare the ground
The burial mound
Breathe in the power
Held in this moment
This blessed grave
This blessed death

Streams of tomorrow
Cleanse our fate
Silver moon
Trumpet sounds
All to awaken
Prepare the ground
Awaken




9. ADRIFT IN THE OCEAN

Siren's call
From the sea
Raging current
Pulls us under
Fighting for air
Scream for release
As colors dance and weave

To the universe we send
A reflection

Adrift in the ocean
Colors take hold
Shadows take shape
Shimmering
Neutral substratum
Vast without end
Our heart's evolution

Dreams of gods
Of us
Of the fall
Dreams of mountains
We feel
To the marrow
To commune
With what we lost
