01. The One I Once Was

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
I cover my weary eyes
Can't face no more of this life
All I lived for is now gone
I've suffered along for far too long

I summon the strength in me
I call upon who I used to be
I summon the strength inside
But it does no longer abide

I call in vain upon who I once was
I can't regain the strength that I long since lost


02. The Pain Infernal And The Fall Eternal

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
Thou art the fire within
Thou art the source of all dreams
Thou art our moral and sin, cursed within
Thou art the pain infernal and the fall eternal


03. The Eye Of The Storm

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
In days and in nights
In darkness and light
I stand by your side
When summer declines
And winter arrives
I'll stand by your side
With my head held high
Through the flood and the fire
Never to descend
Never to give in
Tireless as the northern winds

The demons within
Strong in their will
But I'll never give in
They claw at my heart
They'll tear it apart
If I just falter once

I stand here with pride
Right by your side
Through the flood and the fire
Never to descend
Never to give in
Tireless as the northern winds

I stand before the fall
Here in the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

In the eye of the storm
I stand before the fall
In the eye of the storm
I can hear them call
In the eye of the storm
I can feel their claws
I fall once and for all


04. The Malice Of Life's Cruel Ways

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
I see you stand in the rain of a darkened day
And denial won't ease your pain
I see you falter through doors you've passed through before
As your memories all fade away

I see you stand in a blaze of infernal pain
In denial and on the wane
I see you falter through endless corridors
An illusion and a world led astray

I know your heart has grown so dark,
Torn all apart by the malice of life's cruel ways
I know your soul has grown so cold,
So frail and old, far too weary to face the day

I see you fall, see you crawl
See you face the wall that keeps the world away
I heart you cry, see you strive,
See you mourn your life in the arms of an unborn day


05. The Wheel Of Fire

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
The wheel of fire burns eternally
In my sanctum, my land of dreams
The flames grow higher with every dream
Way more horrid with every tear

The wheel of fire has marked my skin
Marked my soul, scarred me within
I falter on dream by dream
Suffer along tear by tear

Fire...
The wheel of fire burns on and on
Fire...
Marked and scarred forevermore


06. The Chains That Wield My Mind

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
My inner demons got me chained to the ground
I search in vain but there's no key to be found
Drag me down, keep me down to the ground you scornful demons
Drag me down, further down to the sound of the chains that wield my mind

My inner demons have slain my sanity
I'm trapped between the devil and the deep blue sea
Drag me down, keep me down to the ground you scornful demons
Drag me down, further down to the sound of the chains that wield my mind


07. The New Desire

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
This condemnation ravages all the sanity in me
The flagellation you all brought upon me
You come with fire, with stakes and your torches burning
A new desire, a flaming prophecy

This convocation, a vile and dark conspiracy
An oppression of all which is free
A new desire, a destined path for you and for me
And all others who once were free

A waning desire, all hope led astray
Now darkness consumes the day
A sign and a token, a wisdom unspoken
Gives fuel to the flames


08. The Vile Bringer Of Self Destructive Thoughts

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
You come to me in darkness, you come to me at night
A vile bringer of self destructive thoughts and decline
You walk me down the hallways, always at my side
You've shattered all my sanity and cursed my life

You came to me in darkness, you came to me at night
You brought me to my knees and overthrew my life
I fell under your devilry, I fell before your eyes
I fell under this lunacy you all name life


09. The Candle At The Tunnel's End

Music & lyrics by Morten Veland
The daylight has forsaken me
And darkness keeps on breaking me down
All these years of agony
Eventually got to my mind
Feelings of despair prevail
My anguish and my fear drive me insane
Conquering my mind this time
Nail me to the ground and keep me down forever
Forever and ever

Anxiety breeds within
As moral sin is choking my life
The candle at the tunnel's end
Now seems to have burned all the way down
Conquering my mind this time
Nail me to the ground and keep me down forever
Forever and ever
