Darkest Hour

The Eternal Return tracks

Lyrics


1. DEVOLUTION OF THE FLESH

This is the end of a sickening tale
Of life death and repeat
Radiant waves of dissonant ways
Set forth through the halls of refrain
You're a plague, you're plague
And you feed off the youth but it won't keep you young
You're a plague, you're plague
And your prophets are gone
And you harbor your share of the blame
Put on the same face again with no hope
Another day in this solemnest state
Swallows its tail, destroys and creates
Sinking deep with the weight of the world
Unrelenting and stale
Suffer each day as we've fallen out of hate
And now you've drained every last drop of sincerity
You're a plague, you're a plague
In this mortal world and the next
You're a plague
This is the end of your self absorbed dominion
A new dawn has risen
Solitude and its dull light will guide you
Through living this day again and again and again
Suffer each day as we've fallen out of hate
And now you've drained every last drop of sincerity
You're plague, you're plague
And you feed off the youth but it won't keep you young
You're a plague, you're plague
And I'm sick with disgrace
In an age of decay
You're a plague




2. DEATH WORSHIP

I'm in denial of existence drifting over to the other side
Of an endless horizon
Crossed out and driven by desire
Feeding the fire until
O death pull me closer to your cold embrace
With such grace you keep driving the same stake
Straight through the heart
And I can't stop from always thinking
This is not our time and not our place
A notorious devotion to the blood of the earth
Rushing back to your head
Now we all
Pay our respects to the oncoming fall
Bow before
The dead memory of the reoccurred
O death pull me closer to your cold embrace
With such grace you keep driving the same stake
Straight through the
Heart of us all
And we are the fall
So don't reach out your hands
In this false promised land
Over and over, over and over
Again with the promise of an end coming closer
Fate is disguise
It's the ultimate lie of life
Yeah fate is disguise
It's the ultimate lie




3. THE TIDES

Pull
Meet me beyond the emptiness
And only then will you see
All that you have
All that you have in this world
Is all that you need
So release me into the vast unknown
For I have been reborn
Arise in tune with the tides
You wait for them to fall
On your balance, your life
And through the serpentines
You reach into the deep
And you pull
Drift and you tow
With only the moons light to guide you
Will you please
Release me into the vast unknown
For I have been reborn
Arisen in tune with the tides
You wait for them to fall on your balance, your life
And through the serpentines
You reach into the deep
And pull and release Be it on high relentless
Or down in the shallows
You?re senseless
Release me into the vast unknown
For I have been reborn
Arise in tune with the tides
You wait for them to fall
On your balance your life
And through the serpentines
You reach into the deep
You pull and release
You drift and you tow
You reaped when you knew
There was nothing to sow
So welcome to a hell of and existence
If you think you can predict it
We you fool and you fake
Like it's all been arranged
And you wax and you wane




4. NO GOD

There's no salvation
In a world where you worship proven fiction
And no redemption for a life of servitude
You bow and you heed
Unhallowed command
Your only care is the money we gain
It's the same place
A hollow escape
A palace of concrete and glass
Keep waiting, keep waiting
For no god
To erase you
No god
To make you fall to your knees

There's blood on these pages
And the war inside your head
Is with yourself
Through the ages, through every form of "Hell"
It's the same face
A hollow escape
A palace of concrete and glass
Keep waiting, keep waiting
For no god
To consume you
No god
To bear your burden
No god
To use you
No god
There is only illusion

The usurper of life
It'll bleed every last drop
And it'll suck all the breath out of you
And leave you forsaken

There's no god
To release you
There's no god
To make you fall down to your knees
There's no god
To deceive you
There's no god
To bear your burden
There's no god
There's no god
There's no god
There is only illusion




5. BITTER

Shame is such a plain way to describe this state
And every forked tongue displays your intentions
With every forked tongue a way to ascension but
All is not well in this world we've created so bitter and jaded
Again with the same rusted routines we make
Does every forked tongue seem as unrelenting
As power as pressure every gluttonous pleasure you seek
All is not well in this world we've created
It's over you've fucking wasted it




6. BLESSED INFECTION

It sets in with a vengeance
An attack on all the senses
A paralyzing presence

They'll hunt you down
One at a time
They'll hunt you down
one at a time

The closer they get
There's nowhere to run from the ones with no reflection
Hits when you last expect it
Contagious and spreading it's blessed infection

They'll hunt you down
One at a time
They'll hunt you down
One at a time

The closer they get
There's nowhere to run from the ones with no reflection
Hits when you least expect it
Contagious and spreading it's blessed infection

Defiled with malicious intent
A sickness in your head
A sickness with no end

Somewhere someone holds the cure
Holding out on the rest of us
Blessed and infectious

They'll hunt you down
One at a time
They'll hunt you down
One at a time

The closer they get
There's nowhere to run from the ones with no reflection
Hits when you least expect it
Contagious and spreading it's blessed infection




7. TRANSCENDENCE

There is no turning back
From all the confines of regret
Reminders of that day will haunt you
Nights you never slept
And every time you separate the body from the mind
And look into yourself and see what you've left behind

It's something you salvage through and pick the bones
It's something you'll never stop searching for
It's a self made misery
It's a blatant blasphemy

But all we need is a little transcendence to mead us
But all we have is sedation that numbs all our senses

The farther out you make it
Beyond the absolute
Onto another level can't take anything with you

So calm for a split second before you
Reconnect with the storm

It's something you salvage through and pick the bones
It's something you'll never stop searching for
It's a self made misery
It's a blatant blasphemy

But all we need is a little transcendence to mend us
But all we have is sedation that numbs all our senses

It's a self made misery
But you write your own history

I wanna peel back this later
Reveal my new skin to the open air
I feel a cleansing wash over me
And I'm finally able to breathe

All we need is a little transcendence to mend us
But all we have is sedation that numbs all our senses
Transcendence to mend us




8. A DISTORTED UTOPIA

It's a hollow hand
That pulls you into
An otherworldly land
So alluring and new
And the higher ground
Where you took your stand
Has now leveled down to the sand

A search for your last destination
You're already there
Where madness and bliss coexist
With the color that is
Filling the air

A distorted utopia sets in
With it brings a new beginning to every end
And it's all you've never had
And it's all you'll never know
You're feigning reality and coming down too slow

An ever changing map
A spiraled path
A picture of the past where
No time has elapsed
On another plane
Where you left yourself out of your body again

A search for your last destination
You're already there
Where madness and bliss coexist
With the color that is
Filling the air

A distorted utopia sets in
With it brings a new beginning to every end
And it's all you've never had
And it's all you'll never know
You're feigning reality and coming down too slow

Out of body out of mind
Entheogenic the divine
The divine

Faced with an endless maze
Never ending race
Follow your reflection blindly through the blackended haze

Unrealistic it's so masochistic
A display of the self
And you're purged as the flood washes over
Leaving you barren and cold




9. BLACK SUN

A black sun has risen
Look up into the sky
Enter your rain season
Drown out the light
A return to the soil
Harvest by hand
Depleted and bleak in
An unfertile land

Is it fate or is it fortune
That blasts our past to oblivion
Can you feel
The weight has shifted
Drought decay have
All been scripted

As I lay beneath
Its piercing rays
Unlearning and burning

Drown all light into the shade of night

A black hole has engulfed us
Pulled apart at the seams
We drift through the void
We struggle to see
Trapped in an infinite
Reversal of life
Shelter yourself in the
Shade of the night

Is it fate or is it fortune
That blasts our past to oblivion
Can you feel
The weight has shifted
Drought decay have
All been scripted

As I lay beneath
Its piercing rays
Unlearning and burning

Swooning doom and rebirth
A vision obscured
Ecliptical and shadowless

Black clouds are looming off
In the distance
Another great victory for
The resistance
Awake to greet the new
Dawn though the mist
The day it all changed and
The black sun eclipsed

Drown all light into the shade of the night

And lying beneath it's rays
All that we have created will be erased




10. INTO THE GREY

We've got to get out
No turning back
Leave ruination to the rats
We're setting a course
That's out of our reach
Never returning to this
Civilization at it's worst and
It's starting to sink into itself so

Stay away, stay away from the old ways
Starting over
Stay away, stay away from betrayal rediscovered

A dark history of squalor and squander
Like weeds to the endless fires

Elevate yourself to the sun
Burn it black and let the ash rain down
Roaming through the celestial fields
A new seed a new beginning

We're moving to enlightened ground
On an ouroboran whirlwind
We're blowing away and never coming down

Stay away, stay away from the old ways
Starting over
Stay away, stay away from the betrayal rediscovered

We all fade into the grey
It's a place you know better than anyone
The isolation burns
We all fade into the grey
From a seed to a bloom from the grave to the womb
The isolation burns

What world awaits, what world awaits
When this one is dry and desolate
What world awaits, what world awaits
When this one is vacant and drained

And I'll watch it burn

Elevate yourself to the sun
Burn it black and let the ash rain down
Roaming through the celestial fields
A new seed a new beginning

A new day risen from the ashes
Brings our eternal remains
Fade away into the ground and
The end is beginning again
