Umbra Within

"Umbra Within" (2005 Demo)

1. Atrophy
2. Hopeless Unknown
3. The Hyperborean
4. Bury Me
5. Modern Empire

1. Atrophy

Parched of eager
Where is the romance in chaos
And where are the colors I knew
Now so faint as the will bereft
A fleeting stir smothered in
The daylight sins me
Unflinchingly it rapes the id
Have I the strength to fight to save it

Let me abscond to
Respite under sable clouds
Spirit me away to
A place where I'm not found

2. Hopeless Unknown

If I had one more chance
I wouldn't let any of my fears get in the way of these feelings for you
I tried, oh so many times
To get through to you
It was always so perfect in dreams, but a struggle to make come true
I don't know if it means much now
I'd give anything up just to have you around again
I miss you
I feel so alone
(Hopeless Unknown)

Take this ribbon, and fold
Lay it here in the cold
I'm still there, dying alone
No one left to save me

Another call from a friend
As I turn them down, I just want to be left alone
And I feel bad that I don't feel bad at all

Feel so alone
Hopeless unknown

I wish I would have died in your arms, the last night we were together
That way I wouldn't have to go on without you today

3. The Hyperborean

A retrospective gaze
Fixed on a mind terrified
Paralysis set in motion
Through theological torture
The inherent rebellion of youth
Repressed and lying dormant through
A childhood of conformity

(I had become) the indentured servant of god
Years in service to humanity's bane
The baptismal cattle brand
Searing flesh into holy scar tissue

Yet they merely strengthened
The heretic within
Self-discovery was my deadliest sin
Shuffling off their immortal coil
Awakening unrestrained desire
Through spiritual lycanthropy
Carnality eroding the wall of lies
And dissolving the force-fed guilt

Behold! The bestial man
Living beyond morality
Liberating christ's slaves
Embracing mortality

4. Bury Me

Bury me in the shallowest grave, so you can find me
When time brings the wind, to fill my lungs again (With you)
Again you'll call my name, and time will stagger on
It will repeat until there is nothing (Nothing)
Chained to this constant desire,
To understand the human heart
A liar's creed to keep my heart beating
The thought that one day everything will be alright
But nothing is ever going to be alright (Nothing, ever)
A heart so failed but pure, a love like no other
Take flight in purity, leave the (slaughtered to the grave)

This is where I beg forgiveness
This is where I offer back,
That which should have never graced my hands

Rotting beneath what could have been
To have this death, this sin
I can honestly count all my good deeds on one hand
So, I wonder what you see in me
What good can shine through shit
Never set a second glance, hell is what I bring
Desperate lover, this is my last confession
For I am not the man I claim to be
I am heartbreak and sorrow, the ever dying tomorrow
I am the lust in greed, but how do you see me?

5. Modern Empire
