Onyx tracks

Lyrics

1. ONYX

Through the fog
Caravans approaching
The owl’s praise
Winds cry out in pain
Three shadows black
Horses neigh and lightning
A moonless night
A sacrifice

Through the woods
Echoes heard and laughter
Witches dance
Spells are cast, scent of red
As midnight chimes
The hour of redemption
A moonless night
A pact is sealed

Protect us and all my kin
Release us




2. THE LIVING END

Hold, hold my hand
Give me shelter tonight
Call, call my name
Save me from this dark cell
As angels we fly
Now take my hand
Come take my hand
Let’s leave this land

We die (As I feed desire)
Inside (Seeking love beside her)
Each moment (All seems lost)
Of life (I’m dead to this world)
Deny (As I feed desire)
The signs (Bringing love inside her)
Of hope (All seems lost)
We’re dead to this world

Come, stay with me
Hold me closer, I’m yours
Fall, fall with me
Through the cobweb of love

The tears in your eyes
Revealing your deepest despair
The deep caves of your mind
No one will find




3. A PORTAL

A stream of light
Shadows hide in the somber nights
This illusion is all I know
Blackened winds
Call me from below

In this madness I break down and cry
Not a day pass me by without fights

Beneath these scars I stand alone
Hearts turn to stone

Screams of fear
From my dreams to reality
This confusion is all I sense
Holding on to my last defense

In this madness I break down and cry
Not a day pass me by without fights

Beneath these scars I stand alone
Between these hearts of stone
Within this dark I’ll set you free
Within your dark…




4. ((GHOSTLIGHTS))

By hammers you’ll fall
The crown you had now
Forever gone
A cry for the lost

The ghost that
Surround you
It haunts me too




5. MAJESTY

Beneath these leaves
There is something calling
Preserved from the light
In its chambers to hide

Invite me in, Nature’s hymn
Now greet this night
The coming of the queen
Arise, reveal your might

A night-time divine
These flies are all a part of me
At daybreak I die
Again

Between these trees
Here is something crawling
Forever passing by, moving closer
Serving time … again

Night we praise, behold our God’s embrace
Into the mist we dance
Eternal charms commence
Into the night we praise
Behold our God’s embrace
Into the mist we dance
Eternal charms

Black mountain rise
Midwinter’s nights
Feed the fires




6. THE HEATHEN ISLAND

High, this violet scent
I’m floating on air

Deep, the echo of the waves
From darkest skies
So far away
Leading us to them

Night, this stormy night
Upon the fields
We raise our hands
And make belief

Calling, now calling them
Down, to descend
The Elder Gods
They’re summoned by us
Invoked back to life

They’re summoned by us
Invoked by the rites

Storms, upon the storm
We call upon
Threatening skies
Seal their names

Void, out of this void
And into flesh
Ancient deities
Now we welcome thee

Turned heavenward, our palms they gather
From heaven-sent, down to the centre of the Earth

Witch

Ride the winds, bloodred horizons
Come to me oh Demeter’s kin
Dive beneath, bright silver mountains

Ride the winds, bloodred horizons
Come to me oh Artemis’ kin
Dive beneath, bright silver mountains




7. BY CANDLELIGHT & MIRRORS

Cold and alone I am
My spirit is old
My fate was sealed in silence
A long time ago

The night when they came for me
My lover and I
The bells they chimed so lovely
The moon wept goodbye

Justice will be done!!!

By thorns and rags they take me
To the pyre outside




8. VENICE (IN FOG)

Here comes the dusk
The whispering fog hiding the stars
On through the night
The time has come approaching the end

The silence around “The sadness in her”
Of feeling alone “Don’t leave her alone”
The stars in her eyes “By nighttime they die”
Her weak empty hands

Along the shore
Can you hear me cry?
No one hear my mourning
Charon is passing me by

Ignoring my mourning
Charon has now passed me by
