01. My Body, A Funeral

The ruin of your face
Pours down like lead tears
As you sit by my side
Confess to me your fears
Drink deep the wreck of me
My body is a funeral

I fail to find comfort
In your pale cold eyes
Worn loosely about me
You hang there dying off me

Deep in the misery
Of my long arms, weeping
I cradle your tired head
This moment for the keeping

Her hand raised from the shadows in silence
Like a dying victim of a biblical plague
A strange mix of innocence and horror
Gushed from her red rimmed and swollen eyes
Resentment conquers sympathy and I turn my back
Her burning stare, like a minute blazing suns
Roars into the back of my head
And I simply move away

I will sing you this song of
All my pain, so listen
Great roaring, tears pouring
Down unto me from my lover
The winter in your soul
Has frozen me forever


02. Fall With Me

Our great god lies naked next to me
I witnessed death in his beauty
I feel him when he breathes, as we fall
and I clasp him to me as we fall

Shouldering your sadness unto me
The great caldera moon to the east
The annihilation from your eyes
Flowing deep into me from your eyes

You wallow in your suffering
and swim in your senseless grief
The shadow of your body
Is cast upon only me
Goodnight my love, goodnight.
I fall upon your body

Fall with me into my frozen flesh
My hungry death
You tremble before me
and swallow my dying breath
Caress me, undress me, forget me
As winter comes
Your pale skin, crystal eyes
I will weep forever, oh my god why?

As fire fell upon great Alexandria
Our arms were close around us
Forever gods turned away
Give the word and down comes beautiful rain
Glorious pain

Armies of salvation laid to waste
The host lifts its desire from its face
In a memory from a past life leaps the beast
Devouring all around, the colossal feast


03. The Lies I Sire

Before us lies the story of
Enfolding joy, endless love
Given to me through a dream
A following brought from above

I couldn't help myself
God walks by my side
Within my limbs burns hate
Believe me how I cried
The tremble of my hand
Blinded by my tears
But I stand heroic
The holy words I hear

With glory and blazing eyes
I rise into bloody skies
Myself a storm, ravaging
The wrath of God, down I bring

With mercenary smile
I rise up from the shade
As the king of all souls
The pounding of my wings
Tearing through the night
Death's taking his toll
The searing heat
Burning eyes
Fury and fire
A forest of torn victims
The lies I sire

My work is done and I leave none
The passion in my dying words
The grief I leave is meaningless
The lies within these ancient words


04. Bring Me Victory

Is there anything left of me to save?
My life is like a carnival
My body, a sunken grave

It's what I have to do to distance me from you
There's a suffering inside
And my veins are showing through
A man become a child
Are you happy with your prize?
With haunted looks of fear
I step away from your side

My mind, a fractured ruin
The crushing of my soul
It is time to spread my wings
To fill this empty hole
It has now begun
The forces under me
Will conquer all before
And bring me to my victory

I've seen that man before
Down from the fall
And now standing tall
I've seen this
I have been this
And now I am
my own man

No more misery
Look outside and see
What are you waiting for?
Pick yourself up
Get up off the floor


05. Echoes From A Hollow Soul

A boy so young upon the gallows
Gazing down like a saint
From the church of children's cries
The awaited one anticipates

Issued from her mouth a further request
The sons of Adam put to death

A voice is heard
Echoes from a hollow soul
A golden word
Wrapped in books of skin and blood
From harmony
leaps a vision of your guilt
And treachery
smiles oh so very sweet

The last whisper from a dying heart
Limps away through the night
Chased by angels falling through the sky
As the snow, oh what a sight

This closing river takes all away
Daughters of Eve, slowly fade

Given the word and the movement will begin
If it's unheard, the message must be sent
So slowly now, like the early morning bloom
And this is how the perishing will come


06. ShadowHaunt

She already knows how this will end
The wounds of memory she tends
Ghost and strangers
She flees her own grief
Forever running
Haunted she sleeps

In shadows she lays all alone
Remembering her lover gone

Through forests she walks every day
Through winter storms, every day

She looks through dark eyes
Over her shoulder
She already knows when it will find her

I'm coming, keep running
Tormenting you!
Hastily do you flee
I'm coming!
I'm coming!

My dear, I'm here
All shadow and sorrow
I have thee, finally
Embracing you!
Young lover, it's over
together and never!


07. Santuario Di Sangue

With your baronial motif
Mankind at your feet
and your opulent guests
With whom you do jest
The whisper of your blood
The call to those you loved
Who lay down for you
For you to run them through

Carelessly dressed
I grovel highness
Beneath your stars and your moon
and your feminine doom

Beneath the shiver of your sea
and the gold that you bleed
On the wings of your charm
A promise of great harm

The light within us fades
As we shy away from day
The passion of her bite
and the glory of her sight
In a hive of open lore
We await the call to war
In an issue of drying blood
Lies the victim of our love

Regale me with lies
and punish me outright
The crisis of my empire
The volume of your desire

Your enfolding dark
Your beauty and your mark
I give you my veins
As we lay down in pain

I couldn't help the things we did
No matter where or how I hid
We live for every single night
Victorious in every fight


08. A Chapter In Loathing

As darkness stole me away
One evening of sober grey
She alone did not laugh
As I walk the devil's path
Without your moon and your sun
I could not find my way
Though I fight and I fear
I will never ever pray

In a tower he sits
Aged with despair

His anger was poison
and fire and pain
Torrents of tears
Echo his dark reign

The great beast of religion
Sears me

Thy chaste breast, a ruin
Thy silent mind, closing in
His son, rampant
and gorged with blood

His face, behold horror
Armed with eyes of terror
Taking, shows no mercy
Each one of us


09. Death Triumphant

I have a eulogy pouring out of me
A coldness pouring out of me
Come hither to me, as I preach to thee
So wake up, as I preach to thee

If I can't conquer the atlas of your body
Then help me lord
Reach for me
I raise my arms up to thee
I love you with the tears of all my sorry life
Thy sunrise gushes into me like burning gold
In moonlight I see yourself
Naked, for me to hold

You have a eulogy for the world to see
Up there with the stars, for mankind to see

I was cynical
I was beautiful
The deep secrets in my eyes
There was something there
That made me aware
A drop of passion in your eyes

Where she lays free

There's a portrait there
That looks just like me
In great Babylon
Right down by the sea

Fear keeps on coming on
Take me far from this dark
Enslave all for the world
End this now, close us down
