Track Name: Soliloquy of a Suicidal Soul
Your God is dead here, bled like the lamb
No longer dwells in my head, the liar you hold dear
My life is no reflection of his love, hate in my heart
I hold my head high, raise my fist in proclamation
The God of man is dead, and so shall his host die

My eternal sorrow, caused by his hand
My score is written in my blood, taken from the chalice
I saw my suffering, reflected in the darkness beyond
Inspiration to end it, put my life in the hand of fate
Through the noose to the other side, become the spirit

Scream to the Heaven, hear my voice
Poison, frothing forward, accuser, hatred to host
Vengeance for the multitude of pains I have
I smile as the temples burn, retribution
My scars, a sign to the injustice of his vision

Your God is dead here, bled like the lamb
No longer dwells in my head, the liar you hold dear
My life is no reflection of his love, hate in my heart
I hold my head high, raise my fist in proclamation
The God of man is dead, and so shall his host die
Track Name: Shadow Clad Memories of Sorrow (feat. Enrique)
Fading through mist shrouded memories
Towards the blackness that lurks between worlds
Shadow clad memories of sorrow, hanging over me
Tendrils clawing at my mind, ensnaring all being
Hear begins the darkness, and here it will end me

Frozen images on my consciousness
Memories of days long past, misery within
Still, cold and dead, the human soul
Crystalline tears, chilling to the touch
The man that I was, dead to the now

Hatred to yourself and me
Happiness is short lived, flying away
Hatred is eternal, forever against you
Broken mirrors of me projected
Onto the weakened frame of you

Shadow clad memories of sorrow
Laying in cold December rains, dying
Cold against my skin, frozen to my face
Memories of the world before my dark
Never to return, forever lost to the past

This is the darkness of my world, forever
Shadow clad memories of sorrow, taking me down
Through hell, through the bleakness of night
Never to return to the light of the above
Shadow clad memories of sorrow, eternal sorrow
Track Name: To Walk the World of Shadows, Surrounded by Dead Trees
Midnight tolling of the blackened bell
Dark shadows sounding the deepening
Ageing conifer embracing deep evil
Suffocating melancholy, down in the soul
The call of the forest sounds through
Walking the world of eternal black

Lost in the maze the world created
Waiting for the call of nature to set me free
Sun blotted out by the canopy of trees
Natures breath blows through the leaves
I feel the caress on my skin, on my soul
I walk this world of shadows, surrounded

Grey clouds cover the darkening heaven
Rain washing the earth clean, human scum fleeing
Lightning strikes the tolling blackened bell
Sounding the hour throughout the deep
I take no heed, surrounded by natures folk
Walking away, surrounded by dead trees

As the darkness deepens over the forest
I make my way towards the deep waters within
Wading into the depths within, the deep blackness
As it falls over me, stare towards the abyss within
A V of black swans overhead, sing songs of my demise
As I walk into the depths, surrounded by dead trees

Midnight tolling of the blackened bell
Dark shadows sounding the deepening
Ageing conifer embracing deep evil
As I wade into the depth and darkness
The call of the forest sounds through
Walking the world of shadows, surrounded by dead trees
Track Name: Snow Falling on Desolate White Mountains
Far away from the world I left
At the world peak, isolated and safe
I behold the beauty of nature, serene
Snow falling on desolate white mountains
The power of nature, ancient giants of the realm

As I walk through the range, beholding
Frost forming on the edges of my vision
Time quickening and so short, awaiting my end
Up amongst the white mountains, dying
Embracing the cold of the air, awaiting

Amongst the cold and mysterious realm
One with the lonely withering moon
This life is fleeting, but the mountain everlasting
Overlooking the ending of the worlds
Forever one with the heavens it pierces

Far away from the world I left
At the world peak, isolated and safe
I behold the beauty of nature, serene
Snow falling on desolate white mountains
The power of nature, ancient giants of the realm

Visages of creatures melt into the dawn
Foxes flee to forgotten shelters, await the return
Of the darkness that they move in
As the sun rises in the eastern skies
I lay in the frost, the snow, and the cold

I will become a part of the realm
Into the world and the mountains embrace
Forever a part of the landscape
That feeds the wild plant and beast
Snow falling on desolate white mountains
The last thing I will see
Track Name: To Fade Through Twilight Smoke, into Ashes (feat. Wraith)
I know the weaknesses that dwell within
The mirror that lurks beyond won’t let them be
As humanity walks through their perpetual twilight
Fading through twilight smoke, into ashes
I fall back into the mist that lurks between worlds

Bloodied sigils painted on mirrored walls
Summon forth the black hatred of them
From utter bleakness calls forth death
Call upon the secrets of old
Black cloaked reaper waits for me, smiling

Walking amongst nightmares of mind
Black death sweeps me up through twilight
Hells doors open, and carry me through
Oblivion opens her maw, and swallows
Through the circles I fall, into the fires

Bloody tears stream my face, falling to dirt
As I stare through turmoil towards the world
I know the weaknesses that dwell within
Leaving me less than what I hoped to be
I know I don’t belong, and so I retreat
To fade through twilight smoke, into ashes
Track Name: Until There is Nothing Left to Feel
I see the reapers of light approaching
Their wings on fire, licking the sky
Cold hands stretch out to hold me
And cry upon my shoulders, knowing
There is nothing left of the man inside

Leading to the darkness
Between the dreams and awakening
I know this realm well, home from home
I flay my skin, let loose the inside
Until there is nothing left to feel

Where are you now life?
You were never wholly here
I raise my eyes to the heaven
Staring into the blackness
Ice rain falls on my face, numb

I see the reapers of light approaching
Their wings on fire, licking the sky
Cold hands stretch out to hold me
No tears left to shed for me, knowing
There is nothing left to feel inside
Track Name: Spectres of Dust
Spectres of dust blow past my eyes
Memories that dwindle into nothing
I thought I saw the faces,
But they never appear
Spectres of dust on the wind

Once again they appear
Haunting apparitions of things past
Tears cascade as I kneel
Closing my eyes to the pain
But they dwell in my mind, no escape

Spectres of dust arise from the earth
As I walk down the frozen path
Figures between trees and worlds
Accusing stares fall on me
Knowing the things that I failed

They don’t care about me
On the other side of feelings they linger
The memories of the life
The one I never lived, ghosts
Spectres of dust, everlasting

Spectres of dust blow past my eyes
Memories that dwindle into nothing
I thought I saw the faces,
But they never appear
Spectres of dust on the wind
