1. Via Mala (Intro)

2. When Coldness Wraps This Suffering Clay

When coldness wraps this suffering clay,
Ah! Whither strays the immortal mind?
It cannot die, it cannot stay
But leaves it�s darken�d dust behind
Then, unembodied, doth it trace
By steps each planet�s heavenly way?
Or fill at once the realms of space,
A thing of eyes, that all survey?

Eternal, boundless, undecay�d,
A thought unseen, but seeing all,
All, all in earth, or skies display�d,
Shall it survey, shall it recall!
Each fainter trace that memory holds,
So darkly of departed years
In one broad glance the soul beholds,
And all, that was, at once appears.

Before creation peopled earth,
Its eye shall roll through chaos back;
And where the furthest heaven had birth,
The spirit trace its rising track
And where the future mars or makes,
Its glance dilate o�er all to be,
While sun is quench�d or system breaks,
Fix�d in its own eternity

Above or love, hope, hate, or fear
It lives all passionless and pure
An age shall fleet like earthly years;
Its years as moments shall endure

Away, away, without a wing
O�er all, through all, its thought shall fly;
A nameless and eternal thing,
Forgetting what it was to die

3. Darkness

I had a dream, which was not all a dream
The bright sun was extinguish�d and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
Morn came, and went � and came, and brought no day,
And men forget their passions in dread
Of this their desolation;
The world was void
The populous and the powerful was a lump
Seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless,
A lump of death � a chaos of hard clay
The rivers lakes, and ocean, all stood still,
And nothing stirred within their silent depths;

The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave,
The moon, their mistress, had expired before;
The winds were wither�d in the stagnant air,
And the clouds perish�d; darkness had no need
Of aid from them � she was the universe

4. Memento Mori

I gaze at the gray sunless sky
I feel the pain as I�m about to die
To my grave I go
To the pits of hell I shall flow
My funeral march is crossing the cemetery slowly
In the background lies the church so sad and lonely

Strange things in the world of darkness I�ll see
Just like a nightmare it�ll be
I am far below the ground
By chains in hell I have been bound

I am hellbound

Momento mori
Mors ultima ratio
Momento mori
Requi� escat in pace

5. O Fallacem Hominium Spem (Outro)
