1. MOON OF PAIN

Winter darkness creeps
Covers the surroundings
In a cloak of snow
Hiding all the withered

Knee-deep in the forest
The wooden home of anger
Breathing the once fresh air
Now stinking foul

My heart is aching
Reminder of the times
Moon of pain rises
Over the landscape

I wander deeper and deeper
Into the mighty forest
Still searching for it
The balance of man and nature




2. DISEASE OF THE EARTH

Until death takes me
Have I little hope
I dwell
In desperate dreams

The anxiety of life
Growing by the day
Unbearable burden
A solemn sigh of pain

Bleeding
As I wish to enter
The realm of eternal sleep
Beyond time and thought

The drops
Graciously joining in streams
The tyranny of life
Overrun and overtaken

This sadness of the earth
Loathed by itself
Terminal solution
To rise nevermore

Disease of the earth

Until death takes me
Have I little hope
I dwell
In desperate dreams




3. THUNDERGROVE

Hanging from the boughs
The beard of the trees
Moss living on rind and bark
Withered leaves and wood decay

The stones stand in circle
In the heart of a giant stub
A petrified pagan altar
To the gods of today and past

Edible and poisonous mushrooms
In this damp forest shadow
The home of the forest king
Rotten trees and fungus

The throne of wisdom
Untouched by a treacherous soul
The heathen sanctuary
Clandestine - Thundergrove




4. CLEANSING EMBRACE

Sitting by the table
Made of mahogany
Staring at the light
Poured by the candle

The roof is being tapped
By the thickest rain
The window stained with mist
From my breathing

Thoughts weights heavy
With my emotions
Misanthropic wisdom
The joy in depression

Departure...
I rise to the deck
Embracing the veil
Of the cleansing rain




5. MISANTHROPIC REJECTION

Of your pleasant thoughts
None speak to me
Of their loving ways
I construct my hatred

Solidarity of lambs
Worthless inferiority
Crushed for eternity
By the will & the fist of the chosen ones

I rejoice
As humanity fails
My greatest pleasure
To witness inhuman agony

Inhuman agony




6. DEADFOG

The fog crawls from the swamp
Smell of stagnant water
Souls of once drowned warriors
Awful shapes left of men

Penetrate through all
Nothing untouched
Their will of hatred
No soul unscarred...

At night beware them
The fog of the dead
Wishing nothing good
Cunning and treacherous

Faces of brothers
Long dead relatives
As much as the fog is familiar
It offers only death

Penetrate through all
Nothing untouched
Their will of hatred
No soul unscarred...




7. CASTING NO SHADOW

The sun sets behind the trees
Old raven cries alone
His song for the moonless sky
When darkness is complete

I wander in the night
Touching serenity
Casting no shadow
Breathing icy breeze

The fire in my heart
It flickers and goes out
Without noticing how dark
How cold it has become

I wander in the night
Touching serenity
Casting no shadow
Breathing icy breeze

In this night I howl
Grasping my memories
Trying to catch the dreams
That flow from open wrists




8. WITHERING SEASON

A longing gaze
At the garden of stones
Frozen death
Has captured my cold heart

I know my end is at hand
This empty shell
Will soon kiss
The freezing soil of the north

I feel the wind
I hear the call
This wintry bleakness
Beckons me

I wonder
If there is life
When this torment comes to an end

I wonder
If I can feel
When I take my own life




9. A BEACON UNSEEN

I climb up the stairs
To the wooden mansion
Inside there is no light
In the oaken hall

It's so rare to find
This place calm and quiet
No man is seeking shelter
From the autumn night

The fireplace is cold
For the flames died long ago
Hearing my own heartbeats
And the wind outdoors

I fetch some rind of birch
To lit the fire again
A beacon in the night
Though it will stay unseen




10. VOICES OF THE NAMELESS

Wind carries the cries
Long time forgotten
Caught in a web of memories
Only the forest can recall

Once there was a battle
Now there is nothing
Nothing but their voices
In branches and roots

They had names
Even they can not remember
Remaining bound
To this unholy place

Wishing they could travel
Through sadness and hate
To leave this forsaken place
To reach out and be free

Wind carries the cries
Long time forgotten
Caught in a web of memories
Only the forest can recall

Once there was a battle
Now there is nothing
Nothing but their voices
In branches and roots

They had names
Even they can not remember
Remaining bound
To this unholy place
