Order of the Shadow : Act I tracks

Lyrics

1. ACT I : CONSECRATION

(Instrumental)




2. SHADOWS UNVEILED

The weight of our sin
Tips the scales of the famine
Give plague to our our world
Bestow upon us molestation
As slaves to the anguish
And bound to our desecration
We kiss in dark corners
The mouths of annihilation

The shadows unveiled as archangel
Upon us they grace us the words “We are of perdition”
Opening of the seven seals
Our shadows will call thy name:
“We are the fire and flame”

Fall into the shadows cast
By the crown of degradation
Rise in abandon of the flesh
That screamed with imperfection
The furies of this living hell
Still hold us close in adulation
No more tears from dying eyes
As the flies descend to consume us from the skies

We will sing the serpents song
And dance in their inferno
Watch the heavens burn
Their angels’ ash will fall as snow
The skies will crack
The earth gives way
The seas will swallow
Their love and light will be eclipsed by our orders shadow




3. SUFFER WELL

You think you can see into me
But there's nothing here
You think there's more to this life
But there's nothing but fear
Soulless hopeless empty dreams
Of genocide
But, if we can't kill them all
We can settle for suicide

I'll be the first one to see
I'll hold this gun up to me. To me
Cross my heart and close my eyes
Open to see a world gone black of me

Suffer for me
Suffer well
We'll suffer 'til we burn in hell

If we can't stop, we can grace
Disease with a crown
Slit our throats to have a window
And watch the pills go down
A halo from the needle
Ashen wings of amphetamine
Grant me the heart, this soul is too dirty

We can play with suicide
We can set our sin aside
Just hold my hand and close those eyes
They'll find the constellations in the mist
Of our blood and our tears

We can watch this world
Burn through
The eyes of the dead




4. GLAMOUR THROUGH DEBRIS

Paint may face with the skull of my suffering
(And in the end you'll cry for me little sister)
I've got the armor in the form of these scabs and scars
(And in the end you'll cry for me little sister)
Rip out my heart and I'll pull out my fucking gun
(And in the end you'll cry for me little sister)
One kiss from a bullet and we"ll see if you plastic bleeds
(And in the end you'll cry for me little sister)

Can't you fucking see me
On the big screen
Don't you see
We're all made for TV
You'll love me now
You can pin up the magazines
In my life after death
It's my glamour through your debris

The cameras on
I've got the gun
Let's have some fun

Just like the hydra
Cut a finger from my hand
I've got four more
And I'll pull the trigger again

This is the end
So cry for me
Little sister




5. COME AND SEE

(Instrumental)




6. AFFERTE MIHI MORTEM

Salvation lies in the ash of the flesh, in the blood of the saint
Revelation spelled damnation to those abandoned of the heretics shade

The order of the shadow will ease their pain
The saint has come to speak now: Hear the gospel of the fallen

Afferte Mihi Morten Da Mihi Laudens Serpens

The end of the cancer that has eaten away on our so called sin
Lies on the back of the slave nations who never served the penitent

The order of the shadow will ease their pain
The saint has come to speak now: Hear the gospel of the fallen

Afferte Mihi Morten Da Mihi Laudens Serpens

Thou must repent to save the soul
We will walk in the light




7. USE ONCE AND DESTROY

Defile me
She'll say and she'll scream
Defile me
From untouched to unclean

Just a pretty little whore
Fucking used up so dirty, so filthy, so sore
They say discard after use
What's it worth when it's laying in the gutter from the abuse

It's drunken on the blood of the saints
The souls of all your saviours
Surely run through its veins

Shedding skin, giving all 'til it's gone
A feather for a lover 'til it's stripped and left for carrion

Defile me
She'll say and she'll scream
Defile me
From untouched to unclean

It looks just like you're praying from so low down on your knees
A kiss from the wretched maw filled to the brim with their impurities
Were their love for the worthless we would only be here just to appease
Praising to the angels call, to the devils fall, to the harlots disease

Just a pretty little whore
Fucking used up so dirty, so filthy, so sore
They say discard after use
What's it worth when it's laying in the gutter from the abuse

It's drunken on the blood of the saints
The souls of all your saviours
Surely run through its veins

Shedding skin, giving all 'til it's gone
A feather for a lover 'til it's stripped and left for carrion

Defile me
She'll say and she'll scream
Defile me
From untouched to unclean




8. REMAINS OF EDEN II

We all chew at the umbilical cord.
Gnash the teeth. Loose us from the mother.
Leave the nest, spread the wings,
Eclipse the sun, take fire to the fields
And find your grace through desolation.

Now's the season of the shadow : watch the sky turn black.
Now, give love to the devils
Who dwell inside and give your hand to the reaper.

I can't see through their haze as I suffocate,
As I'm suffocating.
As we walk through this maze,
All that remains of Eden is disintegrating.

Now's the season of the shadow : watch the sky turn black.
Now, give love to the devils who dwell inside and give your hand to the reaper.

Upon their rusted blades, serve your soul unto the reaper.




9. BUT, WITH A WIMPER

(Instrumental)




10. ORDER OF THE SHADOW (THE HERETIC AWAKENED)

The heretic awakes in me
The death of all and what will shall be
The serpent spoke this unto me under the blood red moon
Promises the end of days: the sacrament of doom

The fallen star ignites in me
They come to gaze and be set free from an empty promised world
That only serves to satiate the weakened ones
Wiith silver tounges who in hiding propagate

Now come and see
Behold his feats
Now come and see
Watch the sky bleed
Now come and see
Crowned on white steed
He speaks to thee:
Welcome to the order of the shadow

We call to the west and we call to the ease
The north and the south that we might raise the beast




11. TAKE MY HAND WHILE I TAKE MY LIFE

He said: "I'll take it all
Give me grandeur and the stars as they fall
Give me heaven as, the angels they call
To me from above and they wisper "you're eternal""

We've been marked, we've been chosen by our martyrs
We hide the absence of our halos as they shatter
Ready on the broken wings of our sires
Give up life for glory in the cinders of our blackened wake

They'll hold me close
And wash away the sin
And the soil
Caress my soul with compassion
And light the path to immortality

Hold me close to your flame
I need to feel you pain
And in my absence they'll send an angel your way
As the light fades from my eyes
Don't you cry, they're here for me
Just take my hand while I take my fucking life




12. ACT I : PENANCE

(Instrumental)




13. THE SAINT AND THE VALENTINE

I can't remember what it means to be alive
Will you show me? will you show me how to get inside?
I can't remember what it means to sacrifice
When I can't even feel the pain when I've been so anesthetized

No, I don't mean anything
Nothing to the divine
As I lay my heart before you
I burn in the shadow of the saint and the valentine

Kiss the cold and the dark,
And say goodnight to the memories
The ghost of a yesterday
Will hold you close to keep the hurt at bay

As our time transpired
We became as effigies
Underneath a veil of grey
Collapsing in on our own decay
