01. Losing The Sunsets

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Cold was the air that the evening wind brought
Silent and so quiet were the woods on the eve of that night
Don't know why I stayed there for so long
So long that I could hear, hear that voice
The whisper we all avoid
Sound from within, the quiet truth

I felt my blood slowly turning cold
Turning cold from waiting
Hours I spent there awaiting
Hoping for someone, someone to come
To silent the voice that felt like thunder

Evael is the light, the white light
In the chill of my world, she is the one
She brings the butterflies, pure light
When ever she comes by the darkness steps aside

But I felt my blood turning cold
Hours I spent there awaiting
Watching the light fading

[WOODS:]
You're losing the sunsets
You will never get them back
The days you spend in loneliness
Are seconds in shades of black

Winter was cold, but summer is even colder
Nights have been longer, they have made me much older

[WOODS:]
Youre losing the sunsets
You will never get them back
Every night you spend in loneliness
Are years in shades of black

Years pass, but has time stopped on me?
Morning always arises with vaster pain
And then it is sunset again

[WOODS:]
We weep the winds for your loneliness
Choir of broken dreams for the love you had
But now she walks forever lost in gray and woe
She's not forgiven, she's the one for winter to own
Not yours, old man, never again
She's the one for winter to own
She's the one for winter to own
She's the one...


02. Plague Of Butterflies

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Silent people walking by
They are leaving, again
Someone is leaving
They don't seem to be well
Quiet death on their faces

Buried a few of them today
The children and the old by the road
I could give them shelter
But they decide to go

Village is empty, dead, cold, empty
Only frozen bodies greet my arrival
Tortured by the plague, a ghost town

But her face I could not find
I searched for her in the woods again
And kept a light on my window, for anyone to come
But when even the trail of dead ended by the road
I gave up waiting, hoping

In this kingdom of my loneliness
On this throne of my thoughts

Maybe I'm the old one
Sheltered by these woods
And when I lay my body to rest
I watch the ballet of shadows
Dancing through the flame of a candle
Taking me to sleep

But the night trembled my heart
For black wings moved upon me

Hoping for my time to come
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath
But like every night before
Death did not come

The wings, they moved and danced
As a butterfly kept dancing
Dancing around my candle
But why are you here when Evael is lost still?

The morning came with its cold caress
I curse your light for waking me again
The candle burnt down, and the burnt wings beside
Is this a sign of Evael, I arise

I opened my window, painted by thick ice
Took a deep breath and whispered her name in the air

The freezing summer burned my lungs again
As I walked through the snow
Looked deeper in to the woods
And the trees waved their heads in sorrow


03. Evael 10:00

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Cold, oh so cold is this air that the night brought
Silent, too quiet are the woods in the eve of this night
Once again I lit the candle on my window
And, and waited, waited for the sleep

Evael, my dream has been so alive
And this plague has cleansed this world for us
So please release me now

[DREAM:]
Sink deeper to your loneliness and you will lead her to your grave
She's lost in gloomy light still trying to hold her flame
You're losing the sunsets and you will never get them back
This life you spend in loneliness is forever in shades of black
Wake up, old man, and let it go, let it go

Was it a weak sound on my door tha woke me up
Or the trees sheltering me from the night?
I kept my eyes closed but still felt the light
And the room was filled by butterflies

I rose with my heart beating
For the weak hope of the midnight's hour I prayed
And opened my door to the winter night

And she fell... she fell to my arms
In tears I carried her
And laid her down to sleep
Her eyes frozen from the thousand nights alone
She trembled and whispered:

"I was lost in the woods and the trees kept me away from you
For I brought the plague with them, with the butterflies"

Hush now and let it go
Close your eyes now
And we drift away
Together away from the pain
Deep in this sheltering night
To a forgiving dream
Until one minute past midnight
The room was filled
Filled only with butterflies


06. Under The Waves

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
My heart greeds for frozen stars
Deep black universe upon me
I'm enchanted by this warm light
Yet nothing can melt my cold soul

The lakes, my silent lovers
Whispers from the deep black waters
Ice would keep the ghost's silent
Their mournful song freezes my heart

Come down where the embers burn
Let the night embrace you
And just before the morning haze
You will disappear without a trace

Seasongs change but the sorrow stays
Symphony is getting louder day by day
When the fog raises the dead again
Disharmony of crushing bones
Will take away my pain


07. Swallow (Horror Part I)

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
If I stay too quiet
I can hear her walking by
Death cold air is moving
Like the touch of her hand

Respect dying, towards our eyes
Earth dies, flowers dead
Silent whispers slowly flow
The silence from beyond

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

I've fought to take you back
Cause my day is still burning

My scream is flowing through hands
But your flesh igniting

I'm taking you down to the hole
Bring on the scum for the flames

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

You'll come with me my precious light
You stalk me through the shadows
Just swallow the dark

If I stay too quiet
I can hear her walking by
