Lyrics


1. LOST MELODY

(Instrumental)




2. ARTEMIS

In her name you sacrifice
Embrace my art
Love let me go
In her name, cruel goddess touch
Embrace my song, thy wind, thy womb

Virginal steps to be born
Embrace this flesh I need to know
Under dark moon wolf-skin throne
Flowered thy nymphs
Let flow thy womb

I don't need anyone
I don't love anyone

Away washed in velvet tide
I tremble as I kiss your shores
I lay upon endless sands
Worship a voice beyond my own

On the plains of Nysa I die;
When I arise, I mourn alone
Your love fails me far from home
Embrace my art,
Love let me go

I don't need anyone
I don't love anyone

Artemis, please be kind to me
My own wolves savage' devour me
Artemis, please be kind to me
My own wolves cruel' devour me




3. AVIVA

(Instrumental)




4. THE LOON

Unchain me...

Upon the lake, upon the windless water
Swim down to me, beautiful bird
Mercy, stay not forever out of reach
I hear, I hear your evening song

Watered in blood in which I sink and drown
In flesh and by shackled flora bound
Feed the ache of this exile's alien song
I hear, I hear your evening song

Spirit bird, unbind my withered limbs
And cut me from this torment
Unchain me
Mercy, don't abandon me

Arrayed in pearl, blushing illuminate
Deep wounds, vast seas that rack and crush
Moonlight upon my throat
Tempest black

I suffer your endless song
Here I choke

Replume, refire, ravage my unholy ghost
My heavenly mate, flaming bright
Bloat and cry out, flame in the infinite
For all the world spirit furnace




5. WHITE CHORUS

(Instrumental)




6. INTROIT II (REMIND)

Dona eis, Domine:
Et lux perpetua luceat eis
Et lux perpetua luceat eis

Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion
Et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem:
Et lux perpetua luceat eis
Et lux perpetua luceat eis




7. TEAGAN

(Instrumental)




8. DISDAIN

The sun grows cold in the western sky
And earlier and earlier
The sun submits to the moon's rise
And after a summer of sorrow
I embrace myself for a moment of despair

Every day, death's hand grips me so much tighter
And my mistakes are frozen in my mind

Even though I've often questioned why he has placed me here
I never had the motivation to challenge him
I once had a name but you have forgotten it
I still have a face, one you could never forget
Pale white and cold with sedation in my eyes
Where there was once life

I seem to be more machine than man
Now a shadow of what I used to be
With murder in my eyes and malice in my heart
I drop the final curtain on the bloodiest of tragedies
I quiver and shake with my remorse
As I head back into the storm from which I was born

Now I know what it means to be alone
Oh, I know what it means to be so cold
A lonely assassin with no place to go
A lonely assassin with no place to call home
A lonely assassin with no place to call his own




9. A GATHERING OF SHADES

(Instrumental)




10. SIRENS

(Instrumental)




11. ORIGIN OF THE MUSE (VIDEO CLIP)

I sing of the muse
My oar strikes the sea

Christ can't save me
Christ ran from me

I'm facing the gods
Now let the myth begin

Christ can't save me
Christ ran from me

I walked in the loneliest deserts
For forty days and forty nights
Wondering if I'd find my family
In the pitiless dunes of self-doubt
A choir of angels appeared
At the 4 corners of my earth

Bring meaning to my life
Bring darkness into light
We're from the dust of stars
How much truth is there to life?
Will the glory of Greece bring order to this life?
Come walk the edge with me

The glory of Greece destroyed by your father
Most have Jerusalem
Who needs Athens?

I myself when young
Did ask the saints of life
They said he wept for me
A crown of shame for me
Will the glory of Christ bring order to this life?
Come walk the edge with me

The glory of Greece destroyed by your father
Most have Jerusalem
Who needs Athens?

The storm of my birth, the haze hereafter
Lost in the forest I can't find light

The storm of my birth, the haze hereafter
Most have Jerusalem
Who needs Athens?

Come walk the edge with me
The truth, it lies in me
The force that forms and shapes
Brings order to this life
Now ask your saints of life
Now ask your saints of life!




12. LYSANDER (VIDEO CLIP)

Lysander
I pursue, I pursue invain
Cruel Lysander
Thus to fly me, thus to fly me

Let this begin

She must not, she must not obtain him
She must not, she must not obtain
Never, never, never, never must obtain
Frigid beauty

Who are you that you would deny me?
Who will, who will still deny me?
Deny me, deny me!

Lysander
I pursue, I pursue invain
Cruel Lysander
Thus to fly me, thus to fly me

Lysander

Lysander
I pursue, I pursue invain
Bring, bring
Bring, bring
Bring, bring
Bring, bring
Bring my trusty arms




13. DEVOTION (VIDEO CLIP)

Her beauty must success less prove
For this heart is stronger charms
Feeble, feeble arms and hurtless dart
She will not in war prevail

Alas what hopes to wound a heart
She will not live to tell the tale
She will not live to tell the tale
Nothing, nothing!
