Dark Lyrics


1. Tunnels

From the open fields they beckon us
As the rains fall down they cover us

I knew my time had come to run where I had never run
Without the warmth of the sun
Circle of light to lead me on

And the light at the end never gets any nearer
Alone in a dream where you know it's too late

How can I ever feel the sun again?
Never ending the walls of fear and decay
Far behind I can still hear the rain
Circle of light still draws me away

I think I'm lost forever within this cursed place
Damned to search in darkness for the light I can't embrace
Haunted by the silence of the words I never spoke
Forced to face the violence of the madness we invoke

Is this real...is this just a dream?

Open fields - I remember you
Blue skies - I still yearn for you
One light shines within these walls
I walk where the circle falls

Are you real.....Are you just a dream?

2. Cruel Grey Skies

Cruel grey skies - Run for cover
In her eyes see her lover
Fear the falling rain as you shelter
Your world drowned, lost forevermore

Reaping a harvest of ruin
Nothing remains
Leave it behind as your ships sail away

He has reaped where he did not sow
And keeps what he did not own
In her arms he lies, where you used to be
Her chains broken - merciful release

Nothing remains
Searching for yesterdays dream
Reaping in vain

Long ago you were standing there
No-one knows, no-one can prepare
He beholds your world, now your eyes are blind
You let it slip away, now you're left behind

Let your ships sail away
Leave behind all your tears
All your hate
All this desolation
Drift upon open seas
Distant shores rise for thee
For you, for your salvation.

3. Pendulum


4. By My Own Hand

As I lay down
My aching flesh embraced the wasted ground
The fading day retreats again
The fearless night will follow

Consuming life-like shadows
There's nothing more to see

The hollow world
That lies beyond my reach
Within the other sad souls dwell
Without a place for me

Consuming life-like shadows
There's nothing more to see

The braided web beneath my skin
The fragile veil that holds me in
And when it's lifted from my eyes
No more illusion, no disguise

And in the shroud of my despair
No hope, no light, no prayer.

I see the strangers stand and stare
The secrets of my heart laid bare
Their cold hard hands concede no care
And now I see I am alone

For all but one a faceless man
Who whispers softly in my ear
Confides in me the hollow truth
As empty as my broken form
Left as my soul prepares to flee
And now I see I am alone

I lie alone
My sallow flesh no longer can I call my own
A fate enthrals those gathered round
By my own hand, by my own hand

And as oblivion, once welcome
Now unfurls before me
An endless void, a fallen pride
From here there's but one road

And as the snow begins to fall like ash around me
To conceal my mortal shame
My instinct screams to pull myself back
From the point of no return

My frozen limbs lie at my side
My weakened heart is almost still
The dimming of my troubled thoughts
The raging of an iron will

Raging for a life soon cast aside
No resolution with it's end
Weeping for the lives they lived in vain
No choice in death, no chance to mend

And through the burning tears that never fall
I find my sight slowly restored
What once seemed a desperate flight
Morphs into a fate abhorred

And then I find a calm resolve
Heavy eyes stung by the hungry cold
Faltering I walk away
By my own hand

5. Fall of the Flightless

Crimson drops on the scarred white sand,
Blood spilled in an unknown land.
Contours of hills
In the distance like bone
Shrouded in mist they remind me of home.

The singer forgiven for you loved his song,
Choking on words that froze on your tongue.
The waves rush in,
As my footsteps fall,
Flightless I leap, silent I fall.

So many tears,
Cried at night.
Distort the past,
Deny my sight.

Dissolution of envy.
Vanity was always on your side.
Blinded by the giving sun,
I close my eyes and see what I've become.

Unspoken words can never lie,
But in your eyes the fascination fades.
Hold my gaze and look away,
The changing stars that lead me astray.

So many tears
Fill my dreams
Follow the tide
Defy the sea (Defy my dreams)

Flightless I leap.
Silent I fall.
Falling from grace,
I can wait no more.

6. Fallen Leaves

See the shadows you leave behind
As your final share of time
Draws nearer
Who is standing by your side
Grieving as you cling to life
Growing weaker

So all these years come and pass us by
Fallen leaves that feed the earth
From which another tree grows
From seeds we have sown
And none of us knows when the cycle will end

See the light you leave behind
As your final share of time
Draws nearer
see their faces by your side
They bid farewell to a precious life
Growing weaker

So all these years come and pass us by
Fallen dead leaves feed the earth
From which no other trees grow
though seeds have been sown
The living must know now
The cycle has ended

But what have we sown?

7. Wilderness of Thorns

In this wilderness of thorns
All you offer me
Is a garland of tears
And to suffer alone
Bleeding my hope
I am brought down
All you promise me
Is the agony to come

My existence is crushed
Dead since birth
I fed on your hope,
At your feast of comfort
Weary of life
i cried out to you
But all you offered me
Was the agony to come

Alone again
In these desert lands
I breathe the fire
Of your wrath
I have suffered
Too many days
Under these harsh skies

Now I walk,
With fire burnt skin
And I scream
For healing to come

Forty days
That never end
No bread but these stones
The agony to come

Memory of nails
Tearing my flesh
I hang before you
In the wilderness of thorns

I am parched,
I have nothing
I am broken
In the wilderness of thorns
