01. The Dark Host

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
The dark host where green stands tall
The emotion of Summer fades
Conscience versus consequence
With a pure possession of fall

This is the law, the law of the land
Where Angels earn their keep
The dark light, the dark light curse
We cheated our way to midnight

Enjoy the season before Winter arrives
And bitter cold kills vibrant life
We await our ghost, and it will bring pain
I hope you enjoy your fall

This is the law, the law of the land
Where Angels earn their keep
The dark light, the dark light curse
We cheated our way to midnight

Black is the soul of a dying sun, just before aphotic calm
The moment the darkness arrives, be strong and be bold

Remember the day, you said "forever?"
It's so unclear exactly what you meant

Cloud cover erased the sunlight
It's much too late to wish for day
No one's listening to empty prayers
Autumn's spirit gathers our hearts

Here we are in the absence of light
Where the night's chill touches our skin
This is the time where nothing matters
When clouds cover in nightly shade
Where are the friends who promised loyalty?
I never realized how wonderful it was
I look back on that day of promise
And now I understand "Forever."

Black is the soul of a dying sun, just before aphotic calm
The moment the darkness arrives, be strong and be bold


02. Harvest Scythe

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
Prison walls contain my laugh
Knowing you can't keep me down
I will escape from your pathetic trap
Greeted by the grand applause

I am the hate within your soul
I feed the anger you tried to hide
In the end you locked me away
And I'm bleeding for your madness

Broken glass makes up the floor
Forced to lay and bleed
The enchanting choir of screams
Cutting through like the harvest scythe

I am the fear you have at night
I haunt the dreams of those who know
You're afraid because you know I'm right
For this night, I will feed on your eyes

I cannot die, you know this is true
You've tried to kill me, time and time again
We're bound by words, eternal calm
You have no existence without me

Broken glass makes up the floor
Forced to lay and bleed
The enchanting choir of screams
Cutting through like the harvest scythe

I am forever, and forever I shall lead
Nothing you do can end my reign
I am eternity, all kings bow before me
To see my dead eyes, is to feel my lies

Broken glass makes up the floor
Forced to lay and bleed
The enchanting choir of screams
Cutting through like the harvest scythe


03. Buried

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
I will drag you down to the earth
I will torture you as you once did to me
I will fill your soul with pain
I will make you pray for your death

The darkest place is where I make you mine
Deep within the human heart
Hidden away from the eyes of your kind
No hope... No faith... No light...

I will bury your flesh in the ground
I will cover you with soil
I will never allow your remains to be found
I will die with the truth

The darkest place is where I make you mine
Deep within the human heart
Hidden away from the eyes of your kind
No hope... No faith... No light...

When temptation grabs ahold
To sing a dirge of defeat
This weary soul can not shake the agony
No patience for believers
Despair bleeds hopelessness
These thoughts leave me drained
Futile and frail where light has died

The darkest place is where I make you mine
Deep within the human heart
Hidden away from the eyes of your kind
No hope... No faith... No light...

I have been broken a hundred times
Beaten and battered forever scorned
Living life with the rope around my neck
Just one push from the edge of life


04. What Could Have Been

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
There's no easy way to see it disappear
Always dreaming of what could have been
Who will be there to hold you
As the morning light breaks
We long to be there for you
And we can only hope you knew

Deeper scars then any wound could be
Cold is the way, and it will never leave
The great healer, was our deceiver
It's hard to close my eyes in the dark

We'll never know what could have been
As we try to understand this
We miss so much, what we never knew
As we carry on without you
When the rain begins to fall
We protect pure innocence
Empty arms, we're changed forever
When two hearts break together

Deeper scars then any wound could be
Cold is the way, and it will never leave
The great healer, was our deceiver
It's hard to close my eyes in the dark

We'll never know what could have been
As we try to understand this
We miss so much, what we never knew
As we carry on without you
When the rain begins to fall
We protect pure innocence
Empty arms, we're changed forever
When two hearts break together


05. Of Age And Origin - Part 1: A Violent Day

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
A vision of cruelty now burn into eyes
Tortured, trapped, and mesmerized
Living resistance by hand or by throat
Pull me to safety, hide from humanity

Gallery of the assault
Escape the obscure fiend
Disappear in times absurd
Seal the maze which holds decay

A violent day, a day of joy
Anger resonates through open halls
Losing freedom, this potent lie
Decadence fails to impress the beast

Hunger controls the impulse
Starvation for light's rebirth
Pollute the mind with a promise of hope
And another day I will neglect the love

A violent day, a day of joy
Anger resonates through open halls
Losing freedom, this potent lie
Decadence fails to impress the beast


06. Of Age And Origin - Part 2: A Day Of Joy

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
This is where I belong
And it is here where I will write
To scribe the tale of age and origin
Where words are mine and mine alone

One truth, one tale
And your judgment has no effect
This is mine, this subtle lie
Like a God who's hope has died


07. Six Sides

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
She once told me the box is where it lives
Within those six sides, the enemy hides
The power escapes under its cold breath
And it's my responsibility to watch it die.

These years provide the stepping stone
And it grows stronger before my eyes
I chose to keep it alive
I will choose when it dies

No prayer, no hope, no wicked way
A violent path of a fantastic mistake
Dark corners where seclusion resides
A funeral to escape her fearful gaze

These years provide the stepping stone
And it grows stronger before my eyes
I chose to keep it alive
I will choose when it dies

A sickening sound of clawing, trying to escape
Sealed tight, no air, and no light
It needs nothing more then hate to exist
I inherit this curse

Like the scientist before the dawn
A poison I create with stunning envy
Asphyxiate the war that lives inside
Remove the life and silence the cries

Don't you dare attempt to understand
You couldn't pretend, not then or now
I've fathered this prison for too many years
Kept alive to one day crush all dreams

Within six sides, the enemy hides
The power escapes under its cold breath
It's my responsibility to watch it die
I once told her the box is where it died


08. Shadow Play

Music by Novembers Doom
Lyrics by Paul Kuhr
A single movement attracts my attention
A quick turn to see it disappear
My struggle to witness what is real
Thoughts prey on a realistic view

Here is where the daylight fade
Darkness leans on a morbid cain

Thoughts deprived of sterile day
A haunting by the shadow play
So very still and silent I lay
To trace your steps through shadows way

The shadow represents a time before I knew
A presence felt, cold and by my side
I am your captive audience
Show yourself, and prove I am not mad

Here is where the daylight fade
Darkness leans on a morbid cain

Thought's deprived of sterile day
A haunting by the shadow play
So very still and silent I lay
To trace your steps through shadows way

I can hear you, I know you are there.
Your outline against the wall betrays
Standing in the dark, lurking in my dreams
I can hear your breathing across the room

Insignificant within the infinite
A road I have traveled many of day
Swallowed by the black in night's sky
Left to admire the beautiful failure

Not much will become of me this night
Not any night when the gallows fill
Sleep will find the deserts sand
This crushing fall steals my breath away

Thoughts deprived of sterile day
A haunting by the shadow play
So very still and silent I lay
To trace your steps through shadows way
