Swallow The Sun

The Morning Never Came tracks

Lyrics

1. THROUGH HER SILVERY BODY

You'll awake life
Through perceptive light
In the face of your offense
Bearing scarlet bark
The second moon is
Dropping her silver tears
The gaze, the sway, you'll pay
Through the summer, lost in pain

Through her silvery body
Grazing scars
Her skin enchants me
Towards the doom of spring
So I find her
In milk white light
In this silver frosted night
I place you in coffin moonlight

I'm haunted by your touch
My soul passing you
You'll save my fear from this shame
I know I ought to take your flame

My touch will freeze your love
Enthroned on your skin
I offered to cross the water
My blood curls, taken from light

My heart bleeds for
Her restless sleep
I should fake a yawn
Before I go away
And when she lies silent
Her beauty lights the room
But now no other man
Will taste her loins of doom

I'm haunted by your touch
My soul passing you
You'll save my fear from this shame
I know I ought to take your flame

My thoughts will freeze your love
Enthroned on your skin
I offered to cross the water
My blood curls




2. DEADLY NIGHTSHADE

The strength of her pulse is breaking her chest
She's getting wet from this feverish writhe
The midnight's cruel for a lonely girl
When the unknown slowly undresses her breasts
The voice - and her eyes wide shut
Her fever burns a mark on her bed
The path that she runs among these silent trees
Leads her body for me to claim
The veil of fog covers her velvet skin
As she kneels naked under the moon
The whispers from her lips and her screams
Invite me to her ecstatic flame, over and over again
Her bed is covered in dirt and leaves
And she's burning down on her knees
Midnight's cruel for a lonely girl
And she's getting wet from this feverish writhe




3. OUT OF THIS GLOOMY LIGHT

Now I'm a grey old ghost
Weeping in winter trees
And searching for a soul
Waiting for a voice to come

She was worth dying for
It is my severed woes I cry
Her eyes were pale like dawn
Out of this gloomy light

I'll wait there forevermore
The light holds us forever more
Still one second I wouldn't give away
Cold winter nights, I cry on your grave
Why won't you come?
Why won't you come?

As she is dying in the snow
The moonlight silently glows
Her tears flow down her cheek
When snow falls from the trees

I'll wait there forevermore
The light holds us forever more
Still one second I wouldn't give away
Cold winter nights, I cry on your grave
Why won't you come?
Why won't you come?




4. SWALLOW

If I stay too quiet
I can hear her walking by
Death cold air is moving
Like the touch of her hand

Respect dying, towards our eyes
Earth dies, flowers dead
Silent whispers slowly flow
The silence from beyond

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

I've fought to take you back
Cause my day is still burning

My scream is flowing through hands
But your flesh igniting

I'm taking you down to the hole
Bring on the scum for the flames

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

If I stay too quiet
I can hear her walking by




5. SILENCE OF THE WOMB

The wandering old shapes
Bereaved by their last days
The empty seeds, the curse of man
Mourning for this given hand
Lonely steps across the land
Trembling heart in the ocean sand
The voice of despair echoes loud here
When the waves carry the old
For mother earth we fall
To the last of man, she'll take us all
Poisoned air, the wasted land
Turns to our tomb
The silence of the womb
The skies blow the last light away
Summer exists only in the writings of the wise
We prepare for our final run
When the winter swallows the sun




6. HOLD THIS WOE

Please don't guide me again
Could you just leave me here?
I'll bury these wounds with you
I'll be gone by nightfall

The shadow is gone and then you're leaving coldness here
It's getting darker now, the night is drawing closer my dear

To writhe..
I found my suffering - the life
I hear you suffer me - to writhe
I bound my suffering - tonight

The start of cold seasons
Just a road of despair
There is no way out of here, again to feel you near

Why do you love to torture me; cut me open and leave me this way?
And when away of de profundis, you disappear from me again

I can feel the warm nightfall
As I taste the death on her lips
I am doomed to hold this woe
It's time to kneel I'm so alone

To writhe..
I found my suffering - the life
I hear you suffer me - to writhe
I bound my suffering - tonight

The start of cold seasons
Just a road of despair
There is no way out of here, again to feel you near

Why do you love to torture me; cut me open and leave me the blame?
And when away of de profundis, you disappear from me again

To writhe..
I found my suffering - the life
I hear you suffer me - to writhe
I bound my suffering - tonight




7. UNDER THE WAVES

My heart greeds for frozen stars
Deep black universe upon me
I'm enchanted by this warm light
Yet nothing can melt my cold soul
The lakes, my silent lovers
Whispers from the deep black waters
Ice would keep the ghost's silent
Their mournful song freezes my heart
Come down where the embers burn
Let the night embrace you
And just before the morning haze
You will disappear without a trace
Seasongs change but the sorrow stays
Symphony is getting louder day by day
When the fog raises the dead again
Disharmony of crushing bones
Will take away my pain




8. THE MORNING NEVER CAME

One night it happened
The morning never came
It has been snowing ever since
The plague of cold harvests the land
And only few still wait for the sun
Cities are buried under white curse
Remains of the man lay on the glacial ground
The monuments of ice curve upon us
Leading our way to the bitter end
One night it happened
The morning never came
The clocks tick anew this same hour of dark
And if we had only known
That it would last forever
We would have forgiven ourselves
And let the snow bury us together
One night it happened
The morning never came
Now it's been seven years ever since
The season of dark fell upon us
And only few still wait for the sun
