1. DELIRIUM

(Instrumental)




2. IN STILLNESS

Cold grim commanding hands caress me down my spine
Held captive by their lust for me I have fallen to their prey
Fierce eyes terrorize me invoking pain inside
Pursued by their haunting cries
With nowhere to run or hide

I see the demons
They are hunting me
They hold the reins of fear
They do not sleep
With outstretched arms they cry out for me
Enslaved by voices, I cease to be

Fear wounds my soul, engraves my heart
Embedded in relentless games
Forever in their grasp
Chained, much to their delight
In stillness I subside
As I bleed into nothingness I'm parted from my dreams

I see the demons
They are hunting me
They hold the reins of fear
They do not sleep
With outstretched arms they cry out for me
Enslaved by voices, I cease to be

Cursed to live in the
Realms of hopelessness
Falling deeper in
By the hand of them

Now that I languish into nothingness
I fall into their cold embrace
The fire for me has left me bare
Denies me hope to dream

What will become of me
Now I linger here eternally
I fade, I fall
I cease to be
For they do not sleep

Drained of my sanity, my conscience twists and turns
Unyielding dark takes home in me
I let the black unfurl
I am the creator of the demons that reside
The labyrinths I have brought to life
Have left me dead inside

I see the demons
They are hunting me
They hold the reins of fear
They do not sleep
With outstretched arms they cry out for me
Enslaved by voices, I cease to be




3. TOWARDS THE ABSOLUTE

I will not play with fire
I cannot yield to my own lunacy
I will not bring to life the turmoil buried deep inside

I will not play with fire
I cannot yield to my own lunacy
I will not bring to life the turmoil buried deep inside
Beneath the shadows I stand strong
I will go on
My time is now
I am reborn

I do not feel desire
My blood runs cold
Oblivion takes me in
Distorted visions become my world, my nightmare

Anguish exhausts me
Leaves me restless and bemused with myself
Who am I
Is this reality
I invade such fateful waters
They destroy me; destroy the very heart of me

Obsessed with wanting more
Desire wildly takes me by the hand
I want to have it all
Alive, within me
I am at war with myself
I destroy me; destroy me right to the heart

I will not play with fire
I cannot yield to my own lunacy
I will not bring to life the turmoil buried deep inside
Beneath the shadows I stand strong
I will go on
My time is now
I am reborn

Lost in my own disharmony
I am torn; I am bleeding into an obscure fate

Don't lose yourself, don't cry
Rest your head and dream, dreamer
You are chasing beyond your reach
Beyond the hands of time
Desperately you seek to have it all
The fire in you has consumed your mind

Restless, bewildered, longing to find a way
The torture you force on yourself now must stop
It has to end
Oh no it has to end

Beneath the shadows I stand strong
I will go on
My time is now
I am reborn




4. THE REACH

Lay me to rest
Let despair now desert me
Lay me to rest
From this life that enslaves me

Come deliver me
And grace me with open arms
And shroud me
Reaching for the fall
I hear your voice it calls
It tangles in me

Cease the pain the ghostly cries
Our ill-fated demise
I reach to the end
Let me descend
Free my torment
Put out the light on misery
Our broken destiny
I’ll follow you
Without you I am dead

Lay me to rest
Sorrow grows all around me
Lay me to rest
Now the fates have betrayed me

I begged for you to breathe again
To breathe again
To hold me near
And dead I stand without you here
Without you near
My world is lost

Cease the pain the ghostly cries
Our ill-fated demise
I reach to the end
Let me descend
Free my torment
Put out the light on misery
Our broken destiny
I’ll follow you
Without you I am dead

Stories old
Age’s cold
I held you so precious, the light in my dark muted world
Breathe with me
I begged please let us be
I pleaded to save you
My love my soul dies now you’re gone

Lay me to rest
Bleed me dry of my torment
Lay me to rest
End the grief of my forlorn heart




5. TEMPEST

Silenced and left for dead
I possess in you a fate beyond compare
Did you think I'd forget the pain?
I'll bury your hope to redeem my soul again
Now the light fades out from the sky
In this spell I feel my darkened senses rise
In the night, my insanity
I give you all that you gave to me

Confined here and left for dead
You possess in me a world I cannot bear
Did you think I would set you free
Holding me here in pursuit of your revenge?
Now the skies take their turn on me
Caged here in the tempest of your mind
I'll sail the blackest sea
Alone with grave thoughts as my company

May the light reveal itself
May it fall unto me
I have lost all hope to chase the sun
My given time has now begun
Head my prayers
Head my regret for my sins
In vengeful winds my path is changing
Haunted by the tempest that you bring

I give to you all that you gave to me
I give to you all that I feel in me

In this insanity I hold your fate
There is no tomorrow
Your time won't wait
I'll keep you here forevermore
I'll watch you perish into my world

trembling fate lies in your hands
Please tell me now do I truly deserve this hell?
In your world so vengefulness
You've stripped away my dreams
And so I walk under raging skies
Silently praying
Cursed with the pain I gave to you
Exiled to this hell




6. IT REMAINS

And so you creep in, alluring and cold
Dominating my mind you entangle my world
Violent within me you thrust at my heart
An army you grow inside of me
Consumed with revulsion for what you create
Surrounded by whispers my thoughts you invade
You linger you stir
You writhe within
Twisting around and around

Corrupting my thoughts you lay hell at my door
In your arms forever, in your arms i fall
Once lust, now poison ascending inside
Grievously you take me
You linger you stir
You writhe within
Twisting around and around

Here lies a fate, lies a truth
It will never fade away
It grows inside of me
Caressing me so viciously
It rapes my soul
Until i bleed it takes its hold
Condemning me to never love, never dream
It remains, it remains in me

Violent you grow inside of me
In your arms i’m paralysed desperate to breathe

I am defiled, i fail to breathe
Buried inside me so silent you scream
Your presence devours me
My future is doomed
The depths of my being transcended by you
Darkness takes me
Tainted, will i ever see the light again

Here lies a fate, lies a truth
It will never fade away
It grows inside of me
Caressing me so viciously
It rapes my soul
Until i bleed it takes its hold
Condemning me to never love, never dream
It remains, it remains in me

Violent you grow inside of me
In your arms i’m paralysed desperate to breathe

Grievously you take me
Until i bleed you take you’re hold
Take you’re hold on me

Lusting, i let you crawl into me
Inviting me with your mystery
Now poison seeps right through me
The depths of you

Broken, you’ve damned me to a life of this
All that you are festers in me
You’ve slowly taken all of me
All that i am

Here lies a fate, lies a truth
It will never fade away
It grows inside of me
Caressing me so viciously
It rapes my soul
Until i bleed it takes its hold
Condemning me to never love, never dream
It remains, it remains in me




7. A NEW LIGHT

I have prayed and cried so hard to find you
You pulled me near and then tore me away
But rest holds its promise for me now I know
The tainted face of your shame shows you'll need me

I must now put this hell behind me
The love you gave has torn me apart
I'll walk from the black into a new light
To save myself from my demise

I tormented myself just to keep you
Then lunacy showed me true light of your love
I drowned in obsession and glorified trust
The colours of fate showed that I'd never leave you

I must now put this hell behind me
The love you gave has torn me apart
I'll walk from the black into a new light
To save myself from my demise

Do you dare hold me down
You take the life inside of me
I fear you, I love you
I cannot break the chains you keep
Do you dare hold me down
You strangle, kill the life inside of me
This game you play has weathered
Yet you still smother me in shame
Do you dare hold me down
You strangle, kill the life inside of me
I fear you, I love you
I cannot break the chains you keep

I die, when you put your arms around me
I cry, I cannot escape this nightmare
Hold me tight
I feel alone, I need you with me
Let me go
Please be the one, the one that saves me

Now the page turns
I'm walking from torment and scorn
Spirit guide me, into the new light

I must now put this hell behind me
The love you gave has torn me apart
And I will walk from the black into a new light
To save myself from my demise
