Madder Mortem

Misty Sleep tracks

Lyrics


1. Under Another Moon

The mist has covered my eyes
And whispers of sleep in my ear
The past has been swept off my hands
But I still remember your name

So lull me to sleep in your arms
Bestow your sweet kisses upon me
'Cause this love is all that I have
And I'll never long for more

Not going home

Time floats and the worlds pass me by
The air is thick and the moon has gone blind
Mind set adrift and my feet touch no ground
Banned from the dreamlands, I left all behind
All is lost, it can't be found
So weak here, I remember you
I can never find my way back home

Not going home




2. He Who Longed For The Stars

He who longed for the stars
They would soothe him
In this painful world, no one is spared
He who longed for the stars
Their icy silence
Frozen eyes, just frozen, ice in his words

Come down

Where's the reason?
Who's to blame?
Well, my darling love, you left
just as unnoticed as you came




3. Sonatine For The Desired One

You make my blood boil
You make me real
You show me what my life could be

You make my eyes burst with stinging joy
You chain me down and I am free

The time for laugh has gone by
Now you should bow your head and cry
Your smiling sins not forgiven
I dive down into your pain
And then you let me down again
My smiling face is misgiven

I know you well enough

I don't think you should have come forth this way
Feeling grows stronger every day
Your appearace here might be the thing I need
To get what I want
Drag it out from you

Come closer, and I'll let go in your hands
Spin me under
Into the deadly trance
From the deepest wish down to the major fear
I'm bringing my death
Life is more than near

Come feed me, and I will stop the tide
Still the hunger tearing so inside
Join the firedance and let yourself get burned
No end to pleasure
'Till earth stops to turn

I kow you well enough

I don't think you should have come forth this way
Feeling grows stronger every day
Your appearance here
From out of nowhere you have come
So have your prize now
Step inside




4. Lesser Times

I do recall that face
I've done my best to wash you away
But still your fingerprints on my skin
And still your scent all over me

There's no more time to waste
Now all these fine days are smothered and grey
And I have never felt this low before
And never will again

And I don't think it will work
Leave me bleeding on your doorstep now
Shelter the weakened souls from the ugly things in life
Leave me bleeding alone

This time I really tried




5. Misty Sleep

See these bleeding hands that you left to dry
Your garden is stolen, your flowers died
Bow to your own deeds, bow down in shame
May the woods have mercy on your soul

Let the water flow again
Vapour rises in my eyes
Shedding my tears on the water
And watching them float into the fog

I sleep again
Come the shadows, drown the whispers
I dream away
Know tomorrow, let the night fall

And the shame is mine alone
Crawling into the deepest hole
Curling up around the core with closed eyes and clenched fists
And sinking down into my mindless rest

I sleep again
Come the shadows, drown the whispers
I dream away
Know tomorrow, let the night fall

Some say there's a shining path to follow when dark days come
But who needs that path when they're already here
And your candle is drowning in the rain

When the night falls
Misty sleep
For the sad ones
Misty sleep

They walk alone
