In Solitude (SWE)

The World. the Flesh. the Devil tracks

Lyrics


1. THE WORLD, THE FLESH, THE DEVIL

The yonder hungers
The storms are alive and waiting
To burst and break through!

All thrones are empty
And cups are filled with fire
Nothing is true!

And the snake tangle wild
In the spine of our mother
To drag her down!

Into the vast seas unnamed
Without bottom or origin
Unfurl and unwind!

There it forms in the sky
Born long after it dies
A veil of night for the world
The flesh and the devil

Illusions like insects
That die to its might
A storm now awakes in the heart of the night
And none shall defy
None shall deny
As the serpents rise
In the night!

In veins and light years
In roots and bones and embers
A war has begun!
Horizons burning
With endless adoration

There it forms in the sky
Born long after it dies
A veil of night for the world
The flesh and the devil




2. WE WERE NEVER HERE

Beauty crooked the mouth of death
And death conjoined in our mirror
The time has come to break and go through
Were invincible invisible

See our smiles drenched blood and night
Black thorn crowned and at one with the dusk
Solemnly baptized in ash and flameswe
Where never here

At the border fires we dane to death
Noble are our wounds

Sleeping deep on burning fields
We hold the keys
Our hungry souls have come to thee
To plant the seed

Follow the footprints that´s filled with blood
And the burn injured trees in the dark
We let our shadows show you the way
To the final outpost

Gods sinking in oil
As our daggers exceed
Every angel of truth

Sleeping deep of burning fields
We are the keys
Our bleeding hearts have come to feed
The shadowseed

We come with burning
Meditating in serpents pits
We have no names

Phosphorus !

Wither shinsto ruins and black again
To rebuild each vision with you my friend

Brother ours os the graveyard dust
Ours is the vision that sunders it all
Brother ours is the oath to death
To plant a war , in every star

Sleeping deep on burning fields
We are the keys
We shall become the mystery
Now come with me




3. SERPENTS ARE RISING

Ablaze! Beyond we light a fire
I am pregnant now, with serpent power
My child crawls beyond my veins
I break the chains
We're here again

Where rivers once bled
Where life once thred
And where we were chained

The amber knife is held in rightful hand
Left is the altar maimed and struck
By lightning force trust & beckoning nightsky
We are born again and stars die

Where rivers once bled
Where life once thred
And where we were chained

Serpents are rising
Her coiling tongues among the dead
With prayers on fire
That shakes the cause to its foundation

Serpents are rising
Her coiling tongues among the dead
With prayers on fire
That shakes the cause to its foundation

Daggers within us
And eyes within the burial earth
Shackles are broken
Our hands are open to her cause




4. POISONED, BLESSED AND BURNED

I hear them call again
I'm leaving for their realm

I kneel into the storm!
Come cut the throats of the unborn!

I pierce each eye to see the other world behind
I touch the threshold in which the blessing lies
Blindfolded flesh of life now wither to their might
I will be gone forever

I see their feathered masks
They're smiling at my scars

I kneel into the storm
Where lifelong shadows ever fall

Into a storm of broken glass I find the way
So few to know the shadowland in which I pray
I am their phoenix son, blessed to become the one
To walk the night forever

To your world
There are no words
To break the burning silence here

Poisoned, blessed and burned for faceless gods
I am legion!
For we are many
Poisoned, blessed and burned for faceless gods within us
I am legion!
For we are many

There's no time to question now
These words are left ffor you to burn




5. DEMONS

And then there was silence, born and bound in me
Amidst the hungry darkness, our eyes learned to see
They are in my blood, their howl is my name
No storm can calm this fire!

The mirror in me
Corrupt with serpents
Their scales cut me free
I kiss the demon
Forbidden, yet opened
We praise the living truth
That crushes the mountains
And swallows the sea

Our roots reaching deeper, like daggers into flesh
Our wounds sing of freedom, bleeding with each breath
These eyes are not blind, I drink the insane flow
My naked heart forgives me!

The mirror in me
Reflects a black rain
That waters my dream
I die with demons
Forbidden, yet opened
We are the living truth
That crushes the mountains
And murders the child

Through cobwebs of time, our winding blades will wing
Tears falling from the dagger, we gather souls to sing
Out temple awaits here, with altars aflame
Come shades, come all, with thunder!

Demons! Demons!

Inside the living temple
My origins and fate
I sacrifice to demons
To demons! To demons!




6. TO HER DARKNESS

In the wounds of creation
In the fractures of it all
My hands caress, her bloody veil
That is the night

I am ready
I am hers now

Her temple!
It calls in death and in dream
And to her darkness I go

From her touch to eternity
To the pregnant darkness
I an her child, closer I reach
The circle's heart beneath

Don't look back now
It's forever

Her temple!
It calls in death and in dream
And to her darkness I go

Her hunger!
My bleeding soul that is hers
And to her mutiny I bow

Children born dead
In her satin robes
Of love and misrule
She carries the night

Hold my hand now
It is burning
Don't look back now
It's forever

Her temple!
It calls in death and in dream
And to her darkness I go
One mother!
One thousand facts sealed in silence
I go!




7. DANCE OF THE ADVERSARY

Inhale the fury of the darkness
In anaemic vertigo
Across the threshold, I am burning
Between two owl wings I go
I go!

Dance of apostasy
Dance of the adversary

The stench of of death becomes my gateway
Wilder and wilder grows the night

Backwards I dance into the crossroads
Worlds trickle through my hands like sand
In blood and tears I hold the chalice
Libation from the devils

Dance of apostasy
Dance of the adversary

Caress the flame, caress the steep fog
Caress the labyrinth of knives
The bleeding moon cry out for murder
And incense burning, serpentine

Dance of apostasy
Dance of the adversary
Mad art the flame in mind
Bloodline of insanity

One hand that ruptures all foundation
Whiter sins! My world on fire

Another hand that shapes a world
Another passage that unfurls
And in the bowels of the earth




8. ON BURNING PATHS

A broken chalice calls with a voice that seeks the heart
Like the poison of the snake rising in the dark

Say the words!
I choose to live
I choose to die
On burning paths to the end of the world
To never return!

A truth that outgrows and sets the path alight
Shadow sail for the land of Nod and the hungry night

Say the words!
I choose to live
I choose to die
On burning paths to the end of the world
On burning path
Unravelling it all!

In the bowels of a broken star and in the deep graves
That echoes with the beating heart of my yearning
To the gods that ignite the path
And the temple within us

To ever wander - forever burning
Against all other - unveil it all

The lips are seeking the sacrifice
Between two worlds I hold the child

A steaming skull entwined with horns
Left hand blessing to the lips of night
My father stares through smokeless flames
Eyes that mirror all eternity

To all beginning
To all end
To death!
Ever faithfull in blood!

The devil's eye in me drew blood to make me see
That these fragments are the keys, I kneel to kiss the Beast

Say the words!
I choose to live
I choose to die
On burning paths to the end of the world
To never return!
