Dark Lyrics


1. Wetwork

I am alive I am alive
let all doubts fall let all doubts fall
into the grave which I once called home
the breath of life expels the blackness
renew the passion embrace the sun
I am alive I am alive

I search for a grain of truth
In this endless sea of false hope
my quest begins on this day

drowning slowly drowning dare I breathe?

What can I say that has not been said?
what can I do, that has not been done?

in my hour of desperation
who else could I turn to
I guess I only have myself to blame

2. Benediction

neglected Forgotten You were cast aside
casting stones at an open target
what did you think
that I would just smile and then walk away

no that was never in my nature
and it won't change now

I didn't leave to teach you a lesson
I left because you never even looked my way
strange that pain brings my name to your lips
but I am not complaining
maybe this is the rebirth
we always whispered about
the one thing that would bind us together
start over start over start over start over

those foreign days will cease to exist to me
I dare you to look past the scope of your vision
in spite of the empty promises
I will not be denied

3. And A Seraphim Cries

now with my voice I call your name
and with those hands I reach for you
this search is over I covet your taste
you are the gift I have longed for

beautiful dreamer
sleep eternal and dream of me

a face that follows a face that haunts
deprivation awaits
but still I ignore what exhumes
and destroys my trust
and I walk this precipice and I fear the fall

and the two intertwine

there is nothing but you and I
be still for I am now your god
fall into my arms and weep for me
your dying breath a song of love

remember me
this body means nothing

my only sin was the longing
every object so fleeting
you were chosen you were special
I pray for innocence
you were chosen you were special
and once again the hunger begins anew
and there is blood on my hands

4. En Sabah Nur

this barren land is never-ending
when will this season of bloodloss end?

hope falls through the holes in my hands
every hour is a shackle I curse my captor

every divinity has forsaken me
I curse my birth I curse this life
I worship the God of slumber
for death and sleep walk hand in hand
these eyes will never lie

5. Intervention

never asked you for a thing
yet you pushed me aside
on bended knee I served
and that day was the birth of a slow death
defiler I was meat at your table
I would pay not to fall from your grace
my blood and my tears were tokens
I was waste to be expelled
to you I was just a number

forgotten on the chopping block
my blood flows like any others
to find pleasure in my disgrace
you held my life in your hands
your exceptance the air I breathe

day after day I always wonder
will I exhaust myself
from this effort cursed to an existence
of being drawn to you
grant me tomorrow or let me die

your expectations grip my throat
and choke my very life
everyday that you appear
I succumb to your pleading
will this be the day of intervention?

6. Faded Pictures Faded Memories

well I hope you are satisfied
you gave me the push I needed
ostracised for nothing at all
by all those I hold dear

you aren't the same maybe we should talk

this is my suggestion death to all emotion
let this be the end of us
bitter cold engulfs the soul

no more contact forget my face
stop knocking I am not smiling
behind the door no eloquent words
no desire to impress

I'm not lookng for an apology from you
I'm looking for an opportunity to see you in pain

there will be no lookng back again

dig your fingers slowly into my wrist
white knuckle the blade
in hopes that I subside
I want to see the shade fall on your eyes
no longer my lover

pray you better pray
pray to every god you know
and every forgotten deity
you better pray

7. Signs And Omens

you were always my everything
but sometimes ou were all I had
don't be surprised at the contempt in my voice
why should you be?
you have used your every word against me

you are deception personified
your illusions no longer hold me
I lost faith in what my eyes beheld
sightless my every turn
has been met with futility

what little I could perceive
ensnared my progress

lost lost in darkness i only fell faster
I followed you faithfully it was to no avail
I held you in the highest of places
and you let me down you failed me
I want my blood to ignite you hands
and you let me down you failed me

8. ...And Her Name Was Entragian

I always thought I knew the right thing to say
but something died in you long ago
your words echo inside
like screams in an empty well
always wondering what I could have done

but I couldn't save you
you have always been my secret regret
your nails dug furrows in my wrist
as you slipped away
a reminder of my failed nobility

you were all I ever wanted

reincarnation - resurrection
call it what you will
if everything I've done could reverse these days what
would you say?
will you forgive me?
am I your sacrifice?

I stand before you like a fallen angel

9. Of Sand And Sulfer

I know we have been here before
countless times engaged
in an empty embrace
your every word teh touch of satin
everything you do is a cold blade in my ribs
leaving me breathless
suffocating my thoughts

and I am helpless to your beauty
my eyes and woulds are still weeping
let it dry up so I can fly again

biting my tongue in hopes that words
of weakness don't escape
counting the days
counting the moments
to dream of you again
waiting always waiting

10. Candlelight Vigil


11. Metamorph

dark clouds line the sky and descend
to the shallow heart of the man
enraptured by the burning flames of animosity

the hammer falls and penetrates
and preys on my demons darkest desires
my soul is now a womb

you are flesh of my flesh
forever we embrace

I see my reflection on the bloodstained floor
a clenched fist that holds no compassion

tranquility an escape
I will never know
conception - the breeding
labor - the pain I bear
birth - of scorn reproduction
