BURNING SHADOWS LYRICS

Amongst the Dying Waves

"Amongst the Dying Waves" (2005 EP)

1. Haunter of the Dark
2. Supernatural Warfare
3. Sarnath







1. Haunter of the Dark

(Music: Tim Regan / Lyrics: Tim Regan)
I struggle in the dark
Arising, impending night
The horizon fades, and
Shadows engulf the light
My eyes are fixed
On that horrid tower
The haunter watches me
Will the be my final hour?

On this eve it has been seen
Through twisted veins of light
Wanderlust invades my dreams
Itís coming for me tonight

Hiding in this room,
Respite in the candle's glow
Still reeling from the dreams
Of the horrors only I know
The black mist that looks through me
Is still there when I shut my eyes
My pulse is racing, fear is raging
Each breath, a final sigh

On this eve it has been seen
Through twisted veins of light
Living shadows invade my dreams
Itís coming for me tonight

Celestial wisdom I now hold
I know the truth
Gazing to the western skies
I know the truth
Silhouette of fear
I know the truth
Shadows tear through the night
The storm is drawing near

Tonight

I have whirled with the earth at the dawning,
When the sky was a vaporous flame;
I have seen the dark universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim,
Where they roll in their horror unheeded,
Without knowledge or lustre or name.

I had drifted o'er seas without ending,
Under sinister grey-clouded skies,
That the many-forked lightning is rending,
That resound with hysterical cries....

Grant the lightning strength
For only it can save me
I see things unknown before
Things that cannot be
I feel the tower reaching to me
Light is dark and dark is light
Raging hell-wind, I'm helpless
I give myself up to the night

On this eve it has been seen
Through twisted veins of light
The haunter that invades my dreams
Is coming for me tonight




2. Supernatural Warfare

(Music: Greg Jones / Lyrics: Greg Jones)
Under a spell of regressive unease
Struggle to gather what my mind decrees
Scattered about are these visions of mine
With tidings of war, and the ghastly ill signs

Men of deception creating the ultimate divine
Creed and corruption dancing with fate as they entwine

Standing alone here in search of the key
To fortunes we'd hitherto never foresee
A price for the living of lives so in vain
That yearn for the threshold of pleasure and pain

Shattered and lifeless disfiguring everything I see
Screams of redemption, bleeding into a misery
Where the twisted one dwells casting archaic spells unto me

Just once in time I failed to see
The flash of darkness in your eyes
That shed my blindness away
To manifest within mankind

[Throw the ghosts of ignorance
Into the flames
Pale, flushed with fear
The holy demons flee
In this throne of reverence
Dwells emptiness
Unleashed, we cannot stop
We'll seize the bleeding throne

A ceremony of infernal might
Paints your hollow prophecies with fire!]

Our life continues
A futile waste of man
Bereft of all progression
Never to understand
So the moral chains of existence
Are sealed to well within
Quest for darkness continues
Death of man begins

We slowly fade into the edges of time....

Cold, shattered and grim
Crossing the plain
Black is the air
With silence insane
Eyes peer through the mist
Seeing the light
Stricken with fear entranced buy the sight

Child, follow me now
Into my home
Dismal and bleak
This kingdom I roam
There, over the hills
Lies the abyss
There you will find
Solace and bliss

Just once in time I failed to see
The flash of darkness in your eyes
That shed my blindness away
To manifest within mankind




3. Sarnath

(Music: Tim Regan & Burning Shadows / Lyrics: Tim Regan)
Ancient fields lie fallow lost in time
As old as the land itself, here they thrive
In their city formed of cold gray stone
The heathens dance for idols of gods unknown

The creatures, once revered, we abhor
Sarnath, across the lake, lies adored
An unexplained hate fills our veins
Our high priests will rule these barren plains

Today we attack under dawn's first rays
Vanguard of man will lead through the haze
Beneath the sun's incessant gaze
Ending the weak with triumphant praise

In our gardens thrive eternal spring
Statues and shrines adorn the green
Holy city, sworn to uphold godís word
Realize the theater of the absurd

Today we attack under dawn's first rays
Vanguard of man will lead through the haze
The Earth will weep, the sky will quake
Drown the weak beneath the lake

On the thousandth year of their victory
Awakening amongst the dying waves
Tonight our warlords will arise
Beneath the water vengeance lies

Tonight we attack under moonlight's veil
Driven by hate we shall not fail
A living nightmare, reigning death
We shall rob them of their final breath

Nights before the death had come
Faint lights shone upon the water
Shadows fell before Sarnathís gates
And a gibbous moon called to the lake

Close to the hour of midnight
The bronze-wrought gates burst wide
Those within fled in fright
From the shadows cast unto the night

For hordes of the dead had risen
Dancing horribly, bringing ruin
To the temples and gods of Sarnath
Upon the ground their bodies dashed

Gardens now set ablaze
Doom scrawled upon the altar
A new mist above the lake
Crimson hue the air does take
