Track Name: The Night Took Her Right Before My Eyes
LYRICS:
-----------

The depths of the toothless night mends old wounds:
Graves, as old as the earth...
and your skin beneath it all.
''This love is just a phase you will grow out of when you die.''
Like the stones beneath the water
you used to walk on to be taller.
Like the hands you stuck together
when you prayed to wait forever.
This bleak night's hand,
and your words inside my soul.
Sunlight falls where shadows touch,
as life, for all its anguish, is ours alone.
It belongs to noone.
Another fragile morose heart.
I would have died for you if only you had asked me to,
as you followed me into this darkness of the last sun.
We wear our own faults, our own fractures.
That's why I loved you and I always will.
Cold is the soul that left its path.
It has been so long since you left.
Track Name: Mirrors In A Black Room
LYRICS:
-----------

I remember how it grew
My heart inside of you
Oh, how the belly aches
Throbbing blood inside my veins

There we stood, under waves
The ocean floor an ancient grave
Undulating, sturm und drang
Gnawing chalk from the dying lands
The dying lands

In the darkness
Our bodies shone
In the black room
We were one

Dark clouds float through the sky
Gather themselves to bid us goodbye
The heavens will open, to wash us again
Cleaning our sins and drowning the pain
People cling closer, as the world falls apart

...In sorrow there's no sentiment
People in rapture, as the world falls apart

There's ghosts abound and I'm possessed
By what was lost and what falls next
There's sentiment in sorrows, old
And all our cities are all built with bones

....Pain is inexhaustable
People cling closer, as the world falls apart
....only people exhaust
People in rapture, as the world falls apart
...as they cling closer
People cling closer, as the world falls apart
...in the rapture of their sins
People in rapture, as the world falls apart

This whole life is built on skeletons
Track Name: Athame | Bane Emanations
LYRICS:
-----------

Born from the ashes,
condemned to dust.
Nothing ever really dies,
fingers down the throat of love.
A soul as lost as your own,
born in the undertow:
You are emptyness.
Track Name: You Will Learn About Loss
LYRICS:
-----------

Love of liars, into the silence.
As a living proof to a lost choice,
it only hunts those opposing what can't be overcome.
Seeping secrets from the chalice,
they will never forgive you.
“Loss is all and all is lost”
...blood will always tell
Even the truth couldn't save you now,
still marching on, beyond the atrium.
The time is at hand:
Heaven and earth are theirs to kill.
“Loss is all and all is lost”
...blood will always tell
Choose to cheat wisely, in this kingdom of fire
where doubt carves hunter in your veins.
There is nothing to die for and it is tearing you apart.
Affiliate with sorrow until completely hollow.
In these dreams, blood is every color.
A fleeting avalanche of soul-annihilating memory.
A final benediction to die inside of you.
Bow down, crawl forward,
from mistake to mistake.
Avoiding their presence,
escaping heaven's sake.
Track Name: Fear Lights The Path (Close To Our Hearts)
LYRICS:
-----------

Thousand murders
Are hollow to withhold
When love is our grace
Left as bones
Monuments
Around our souls
Their shadows speak
Of useful deaths
And noone dares to breathe
Two lovers now take cover
Underneath the mess that is our lives
Two lovers now take cover
Underneath the secrecy of lies
Learn to accept the burns
Wash their hands
Of the things they’ve done
We want you to fear the future
Within you the blame was found
And noone would ever listen.
