01. Through Her Silvery Body

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
You'll awake life
Through perceptive light
In the face of your offense
Bearing scarlet bark
The second moon is
Dropping her silver tears
The gaze, the sway, you'll pay
Through the summer, lost in pain

Through her silvery body
Grazing scars
Her skin enchants me
Towards the doom of spring
So I find her
In milk white light
In this silver frosted night
I place you in coffin moonlight

I'm haunted by your touch
My soul passing you
You'll save my fear from this shame
I know I ought to take your flame

My touch will freeze your love
Enthroned on your skin
I offered to cross the water
My blood curls, taken from light

My heart bleeds for
Her restless sleep
I should fake a yawn
Before I go away
And when she lies silent
Her beauty lights the room
But now no other man
Will taste her loins of doom

I'm haunted by your touch
My soul passing you
You'll save my fear from this shame
I know I ought to take your flame

My thoughts will freeze your love
Enthroned on your skin
I offered to cross the water
My blood curls


02. Deadly Nightshade

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
The strength of her pulse is breaking her chest
She's getting wet from this feverish writhe
The midnight's cruel for a lonely girl
When the unknown slowly undresses her breasts

The voice and her eyes wide shut
Her fever burns a mark on her bed

The path that she runs among these silent trees
Leads her body for me to claim

The veil of fog covers her velvet skin
As she kneels naked under the moon

The whispers from her lips and her screams
Invite me to her ecstatic flame, over and over again

Her bed is covered in dirt and leaves
And she's burning down on her knees
Midnight's cruel for a lonely girl
And she's getting wet from this feverish writhe

The path that she runs among these silent trees
Leads her body for me to claim

The veil of fog covers her velvet skin
As she kneels naked under the moon

The whispers from her lips and her screams
Invite me to her ecstatic flame, over and over again

The veil of fog covers her velvet skin
As she kneels naked under the moon

The whispers from her lips and her screams
Invite me to her ecstatic flame, over and over again


03. Out Of This Gloomy Light

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Now I'm a gray old ghost
Weeping in winter trees
And searching for a soul
Waiting for a voice to come

She was worth dying for
It is my severed woes I cry
Her eyes were pale like dawn
Out of this gloomy light

I'll wait there forevermore
The light holds us forever more
Still one second I wouldn't give away
Cold winter nights, I cry on your grave
Why won't you come?
Why won't you come?

As she is dying in the snow
The moonlight silently glows
Her tears flow by her cheek
When snow falls from the trees

I'll wait there forevermore
The light holds us forever more
Still one second I wouldn't give away
Cold winter nights, I cry on your grave
Why won't you come?
Why won't you come?


04. Swallow

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


05. Silence Of The Womb

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
The wandering old shapes
Bereaved by their last days
The empty seeds, the curse of man
Mourning for this given hand

Lonely steps across the land
Trembling heart in the ocean sand
The voice of despair echoes loud here
When the waves carry the old

For mother earth we fall
To the last of man, she'll take us all
Poisoned air, the wasted land
Turns to our tomb
The silence of the womb

The skies blow the last light away
Summer exists only in the writings of the wise
We prepare for our final run
When the winter swallows the sun

For mother earth we fall
To the last of man, she'll take us all
Poisoned air, the wasted land
Turns to our tomb
The silence of the womb

The wandering old shapes
Bereaved by their last days
The empty seeds, the curse of man
Mourning for this given hand

Lonely steps across the land
Trembling heart in the ocean sand
The voice of despair echoes loud here
When the waves carry the old

The wandering old shapes
Bereaved by their last days
The empty seeds, the curse of man
Mourning for this given hand


06. Hold this Woe

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
Please don't guide me again
Could you just leave me here?
I'll bury these wounds with you
I'll be gone by nightfall

The Shadow has come and then you're leaving coldness here
It's getting darker now, the night is drawing closer my dear

To writhe...
I feel my suffering... the life...
I hear you suffer me... to writhe...
I bound my suffering tonight

The start of cold seasons
Just a road of despair
There is no way out of here
And again I feel you near

Why do you love to torture me,
cut me open and leave me the blame?
And when away of de profundis,
you disappear from me again

I can feel warm nightfall
As I taste the death, on her lips
I am doomed to hold this woe
Its time to kneel, I'm so alone

To writhe...
I feel my suffering... the life...
I hear your suffer me... to writhe...
I bound my suffering... Tonight

The start of cold seasons
Just a road of despair
There is no way out of here
And again I feel you near

Why do you love to torture me,
cut me open and leave me the blame?
And when away of de profundis,
you disappear from me again

To writhe...
I feel my suffering... the life...
I hear your suffer me... to writhe...
I found my suffering... Tonight


07. 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 ghosts 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

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


08. The Morning Never Came

Music & lyrics by Juha Raivio
One night it happened
The morning never came
It has been snowing ever since
The plague of cold harvests the land
And only few still wait for the sun

Cities are buried under white curse
Remains of the man lay on the glacial ground
The monuments of ice curve upon us
Leading our way to the bitter end

One night it happened
The morning never came
The clocks tick anew this same hour of dark
And if we had only known
That it would last forever
We would have forgiven ourselves
And let the snow bury us together

One night it happened
The morning never came
Now it's been seven years ever since
The season of dark fell upon us
And only few still wait for the sun

Cities are buried under white curse
Remains of the man lay on the glacial ground
The monuments of ice curve upon us
Leading our way to the bitter end

One night it happened
The morning never came
The clocks tick anew this same hour of dark
And if we had only known
That it would last forever
We would have forgiven ourselves
And let the snow bury us together

Cities are buried under white curse
Remains of the man lay on the glacial ground
The monuments of ice curve upon us
Leading our way to the bitter end

One night it happened
The morning never came
The clocks tick anew this same hour of dark
And if we had only known
That it would last forever
We would have forgiven ourselves
And let the snow bury us together
