1. Tomorrow Held In Scorn

Tomorrow held in scorn
This night unraveled goes unborn
Stars that mark are starting fall away
If we curse the sun
Can we undo what the moon hath done
Lunacy with impunity
(There is none!)

Misfortune lies beyond the dawn
What need to carry on
When the curtain draws on -
our ludicra...

Reverie - quelled by the sun
A chore once more undone
Crusades remain unwon
Tomorrow held in scorn...

Bask in ugly ever after
Burning, angered eyes
Troubles and their looming shadows
With the day, arise

Reverie - quelled by the sun
A chore once more undone
Crusades remain unwon
Tomorrow held in scorn...

If we curse the sun
Can we undo what the moon hath done
Lunacy with impunity
(There is none!)




2. Hollow Promise

Should I come empty handed?
No redemption can I meet.
Of no service to sovereignty,
lay no trophies at your feet.

The sorrows that the Earth bestow,
can no heaven balm?
All the woe that cloaks and binds us,
canned 1000 virtues calm.

The hollow promise of a hollow psalm.

And their need for shepherds
will see them duelly fleeced.
Their hides provides, in bitter times
warmth for the priests.

Amid moth eaten scrim,
behind shrines the heavens,
its glow growing dim,
Illuminate on secret shame,
casting shadows across a bog of dirt
which bears your name.

The sorrows thet the Earth bestow,
can no heaven balm?
All the woe that cloaks and binds us,
canned 1000 virtues calm.

The hollow promise of a hollow psalm.




3. The Final Lamentation

Lachrymal drops fall as trees beyond reach
Devoid of voice
Lacking reason
Cascading at random, salted rains
But as oft
As the tides
A tireless flow which stops at nothing
For no sense
Can annul it's weight

Crimson pearls dot twisted path
Granting clues
Of corporeal treason
Flowing with purpose as lover's tears
Yet failing
To bring forth release
Still ruby ribbons from outstretched arms
Paint a room
Red with regret

Still ruby ribbons from outstretched arms
Paint a room
Red with regret




4. Userpent

Slithering, crawling
Through a glade, corrupting virtue
Twisted, maligned
Swallow whole the souls of angels
Controlling serpent
Constricts and crushes purest pleasure
Searing poison
Injected tincture numbs the fallen

Treacherous snake
Crawling into being
Extending existance
Passing mortality
Shawdows hiding fate

It's a lie unto myself
The snake has taken everything

It is this servitude
What sickening self-revolt
Tricked into temptation
Coiled within it's folds

Blinded by self hatred
Dark shawdows dominate

Rake the skin
Scales hard-edged embrace
Lost to sin, blackened
Guilt held in disgrace

Slithering, crawling
Through a glade, corrupting virtue
Twisted, maligned
Swallow whole the souls of angels
Controlling serpent
Constricts and crushes purest pleasure
Rotten inside
Injected tincture numbs the fallen




5. Heaped Upon Impassive Floors

Anger burns by candle-light
To those named not worthy
A tedious wait, ceaseless
For life's toil to break

A lull that never soothes
A quiet bereft of peace
No sense of kindred binds
To those left behind

Empty...

Time, torpor, numbing ennui
Rage, hunger, void of hope

Heaped upon impassive floors
Defeated pawns forever more

Fighting darkness alone, lives slip away
Writhe in darkness alone, life slips away
Writhing darkness, a lone life pissed away
Die in darkness, a lone life slipped away




6. Damn the Night

Sunken eyes still have sight
To view a hope, a hope for light
Burnt tresses wreak a sour plight
This nightmare now true to your delight

If it is true, then damn the night
Embracing tomb, for it's only...
For it is your dwelling
It is your hour, your only hour
Where you'll perish and wish alone
You'll wish alone, you will see

Encased, this place of stone
Final hour to attone
(No more burdens bestowed at dawn)
Enshrouded in blackened skies
Wish for light within the lies
(When the ceaseless night is gone)

And what is left - a hollow rotting
Only eyes wait, sunken
As dead love walks hand in hand
Nightmares, hatemares
Engaging, enraging
Tonight I... I damn thee
Your night fall, your hour

Damn the night, for it only falls undone
Damn the night, for it is nothing but artifice
Damn the night, for it is only a fraud

Where you'll wish, you will wish alone




7. Tragúdia




8. Awake to Grey

Murdering the beast inside through time
Abandoning memories
Extracting claret
Squelching life

If we die before the dawning hour
Grant one more moment of lucid ardour

If we die before the dawning hour
Grant one more moment of lucid ardour
And the time of indecision
Before the nothing struck
Before the river drained

Bleeding in graves
Aching under
Impassive tongues
Blessed ignorance
Shaped to the sunrise
Painted slumber
Forget what matters
Awake to grey

This brain is chaos crawling
Crippled on all fours
The face belies lividity
Migrates through pores

If we die before the dawning hour
Grant one more moment of hated adoration

If we die before the dawning hour
Grant one more moment of lucid ardour
And the time of indecision
Before the dull hath struck
Before the vigor drained.

Bleeding in graves
Aching under
Impassive tongues
Blessed ignorance
Shaped to the sunrise
Painted slumber
Forget what matters
Awake to grey

Mourn in wrathful agony
Mourn in wrathful agony?
For fate's return to forever renew
The face of erudite, a plea to end
The face of erudite, a plea to end evading
Mourn in wrathful agony
Agony?
