Lyrics


1. THESE WOODS BREATHE EVIL

"I grasp the soil from the tomb
and cover my face
This face of a murderer"

Serpents betrayed me
They crawled in my head and betrayed me
Old woods, they misled me
Cut my face and misled me

The owls are not what they seem
They made me do it
Am I a ghost amongst them?
But this blood is real that stains my hands

Tortured by these voices, like flies around me
They chased me here and you invited me in...

These woods breathe evil!
Rust on the ground and the arches of fire!
These woods breathe evil!
Here in the circle of eerie winds!
Towards the black heart of magnetic north

Black lodge and red rooms of insanity
Here I reached the point of no return
With my hands around you they chased me here
To this hotel of ghosts
And they showed me this room, this room with a view
And you invited me in...

These woods...
They led me back here, to your buried body...




2. FALLING WORLD

Hold me, this world is falling down on me
Feel it, is it the dead or death
that walks among us?

Close your eyes but stay awake
They are trying to crawl inside your head
Wish I could end this all today
But like all good, our hope fades away

Hold me, few more steps and I will fall
Watch me, I'll take you with me
Too sad to leave alone

Burden on my shoulders, the curse of man, no stepping back
I'll take you there - no life, no cries, no more sleepless nights

Close your eyes but stay awake
They are trying to crawl inside your head
Wish I could end this all today
But like all good, our hope fades away




3. SLEEPLESS SWANS

Too late to leave, blinded by the last night
Too far, too late, too deep
To escape from the hands of this night
Winter has our hearts, it finally tore us apart

The cries of loss, ripping wings
We are frozen on the lake
So close to watch her die
But too far to leave together
This tomb of ice finally ripped us apart
We are sleepless swans, frozen on the lake

Lay down your eyes, blinded by the last night
The sun won't light them any longer
The deeper the dark, the clearer we see
Escaping death only made it stronger

The cries of loss, ripping wings
We are frozen on the lake
So close to watch her die
But too far to leave together
This tomb of ice finally ripped us apart
We are sleepless swans, frozen on the lake

Waiting, silence, burning touch of air
Eyes, frozen, Orion, the map of sky is quiet
November sang us songs of goodbye
But foolish hearts hailed the wait

Winter has our hearts now, it finally tore us apart
We are sleepless swans, frozen on the lake




4. ...AND HEAVENS CRIED BLOOD

And heavens cried blood as
I swallowed the poison from her lips again
And heavens cried blood
I felt no regrets for her death

No need for sympathies, what she got is what she deserved
She blackened the world, she blackened the sun

These drops of blood won't wash away your sins
I buried you deep to forget the pain
But every night I see you through sleep
Another cold night, neverending hell

Skies opened, red started to flow
It is murder
Sun shed its last rays, the seraphs fall
The angels are gone
The end will surely catch us all

And heavens cried blood as
I swallowed the poison from her lips again
And heavens cried blood
I felt no regrets for her death

Skies opened, red started to flow
It is murder
Sun shed its last rays, the seraphs fall
The angels are gone
The end will surely catch us all

Sun shed its last rays
The end will surely catch us all




5. NEW MOON

"Tomorrow will be worse"

I heard her say as she closed the curtains
And walked away

Tied on the bed by hands of the past
Memories too painful to be opened
My body crushed and burned from escaping life
The sleep will come, with horrors of you...

New moon, would you open the gates
and take me away from this night
New moon, between the curtains
Walk me away on your silvery bridge
New moon, lay your mercy on me tonight

The despair of morning sun, beams of unholy light
No one can read the signs of these eyes
The prayer of escape, I will never heal

The flames on my skin to wash all bad away
Was unpurifying kiss of suffering

But I judge myself to give it all away, for you...

New moon, would you open the gates
and take me away from this night
New moon, between the curtains
Walk me away on your silvery bridge
New moon, lay your mercy on me tonight




6. LIGHTS ON THE LAKE (HORROR PT.III)

Father, why did you drown me here?
In these waters
And father, why did you leave me here?
In deep waters
Father, it's getting darker here as the years pass
And father, I'm the whispers on the lake
Lights on water

My child, I carry the burden of sorrow with your soul
The songs you gently sing to me
But the love was never stronger
than the grief of your unholy price

I curse you forever in your watery grave, you passenger of evil
For taking her away from me
The blood of your arrival, cutting knives and shadows
A ceremony of pain
Through living flesh to the dead, both in my bloody hands
But only one cried

In blazing fury I carried you through the woods
While the trees tried to stop me in horror
Your cry echoed on the lake as I laid you down on the boat

The tears made circles on the still, the circles made the waves
The waves raised the tide and made rain fall
Raised the lights on the lake

Through the mist, further on the lake
In the eye of still water
Into the deepest pit you silently fell
Slowly in the throat of dark water




7. SERVANT OF SORROW

Memories start to fade, only a gray thought of something
Was it even me?
All the scars remind me I was somewhere
Forgotten you were so don't dare to rise
Stay in your tomb, whoever you were

I washed myself with pain a long time ago
So deep that nothing can reach me

These deep shadows of my heart, crushing pain
It follows in voices, the rooms, the garden
Leaving me to bleed the truth of it all

Who ever is sentenced to love will bow down as a servant of sorrow

Searching memories of the days of light
It will kill me, even a touch of warmth
But I long for it more
Than the stone I've turned to

Alone in this castle, in these halls of gloom
An old shape, once a brave man
Now the servant of sorrow




8. WEIGHT OF THE DEAD

"I lost the last of my hope on that night
when the morning never came
Staring in the eye of all those ghosts of loss
And like the plague it crushed me
On the eve of a new moon"

I'm made of filth, of lies
No clean blood runs in me
I've turned to everything I hate
Black blood and dirt in a human shell

Leaving these trails of betrayal
Cold lifeless flesh, a so called man

Choking on the pain of others
In my own lies I drown
Happiness was all I reached for
But sure, no one deserves it
That dim light I still held, finally faded

There was so much in me that I trusted
But so little I knew
The weakness I held was stronger than anything
And it turned me into arrows for the ones I truly loved

Forgive me for falling
I know you all trusted in me
But I'm made of filth, of lies
No good blood runs in me

Forgive me all, no more hope
