Dark Lyrics


1. The Renascence

You do not know very well…
Neither the how nor the why,
The only thing you know for sure,
It is that you must run.
What long ago you conceived
A shelter of hopes and beliefs,
It is now a serpent’s lair,
From where you have to escape!
“Faces do not show smiles anymore,
Languishing ghosts in an endless scream
From their jaws sharp peaks shine within,
Desiring to dye their snowy crowns with
The deep dark red dusk of the blood.
-Bloodshot eyes hunger for blood-
Cain drives their blood-thirst hearts,
Into a spiral of frenzy and raving…”
Iced tears shed from their eyes
Pretending to mourn for his death,
Whilst their eager souls laugh
Hiding their hands tainted in blood.

“Why did you killed me, slayed me
And perished my existence?
Closing with these thorns,
The true path I revealed to you.
Haven’t I given everything for you?
And is this the way I’ve been paid,
With an Obol under my tongue…?”
“And now he sails the Stygian Lake
In a course with no returning way
He can’t return from the travel
That he has began, no! No he can’t.-
Will be he able to deceive Nicte’s son?
Oh! Could he really come back again?”
From the riversides of Hades he returned,
Beguiling Kerberos with craft and skill,
Epic songs they’ll chant for him,
For the one who escaped from Death.
The Renascence!
(Listen to the chorus of triumphant Angels!)
A Renascence!
(From the Ashes of Death to Hero’s Glory!)
Envy corrodes the soul
And buries his victim
Under heavy slabs.
Why Human Being therefore degrade?
Why he yearns with so much fervour
What he does not possess?
Now I understand why you killed me…
you envied the poet’s work
And put me apart from Calliope,
But I have returned,
From where no one has come before,
And I will not rest until I find you all.
So listen!
You listen!
Since you will hear soon from me

2. Chasing The Sun

As I ride
As I roam
Enfolded by Darkness
Eager to find the Sun.
Many years have gone
Since that I’ve returned
From where no one
Has come before.
And it’s now
And here
Where all the ending
Will unfold.
This is the fate
Of whom haunts with no soul,
“Feeding from hate
Is healing from pain”.
Envy guided your hearts,
Envy sealed my eyes,
But I’ve returned,
With vengeance in my hands.
The Oracle sang
I will find you at last,
Far beyond no more told,
She only said the words:
“set you free,
chase the sun”
[the Parcas chanting]
“Hear the hymn of hell,
O'er the victim sounding,
Chant of frenzy, chant of ill,
Sense and will confounding!
Round the soul entwining
Without lute or lyre-
Soul in madness pining,
Wasting as with fire!”
The daughters of Night appear,
Those who are feared by Gods,
Relentless pace,
Is her furious race.
Avenging Demons of injustice
That your song resounds
Chaining the sanity
Of those who I hunt!
Erinias, instil the fear
So deep in their hearts,
That my hand only need
A move to avenge my death!
“Hear the hymn of hell,
O'er the victim sounding,
Chant of frenzy, chant of ill,
Sense and will confounding!
Round the soul entwining
Without lute or lyre-
Soul in madness pining,
Wasting as with fire!”
[Calliope enters]
“Keep your hand apart,
From the raging sword,
And listen from my lips
The poetry in my words.
Because anger and hate
Will bait you until the end,
And from the Abyss of Hell
You’ll never escape again”
Oh! Is that you?
My Muse of creation…
“Please, don’t get caught
With the chant of these three,
Cause not only the sanity
Of your killers
But yours it’s here at risk.”
I will not forget
They drowned me
Into the Waters of Lethe
And thus they smothered
The flame of creation
That was on me.
[A chorus]
“he will do it!
Oh, yes he’ll kill them,
And the grudge shall destroy him,
And it shall bind him to the souls
Of his assassins.”
“but the words of Calliope
Resounded in his head…”
This maelstrom of wrath
Is tearing my heart
And like a dark spectre
It will make me forever dance…
Oh, is this what I want?
It’s now when I understand
What the Oracle
Wanted to say…
[with echoes]
“set you free!
Chase the sun…
…Surpass the anger
In this new life.”
I will embrace the light of day
Stepping out of the darkness where I rest.
Over forgiveness it’s redemption,
So I’ll shed from the chains of vengeance.

3. To The Grave (With Thee)

Gravel falls on her coffin
like the curtain after a play
He still cannot believe
It got to end this way...
She lays deep down below
And neither all of his sorrow
Will not awake her
From the horror that waits in there.
Just hundreds of words
Flashed before his eyes
But none emerged
From his torn and dried throat.
But today
Eyes do the talking
Eyes that ask for Death
Eyes that ask why her
"No more kisses,
Nor embraces,
Nor daily stories
To share...
And frustration
Guide me to your
Tomb every day"
By your grave I will stay
Not a single day I'll leave you
Without my everlasting litany.
To the grave with thee (my dear).
Cause no one could understand
The way our love was meant to be.
Love memories
Challenge this man
Caught in a web
Talk to the dead
Down in the dumps
When the moon starts its reign
he falls asleep
And his lady appears…
"I can't believe what my eyes are seeing,
Is this a cruel joke by Morpheus?
The vision of my Dearest Love,
Descending like an angel from heavens
With apparels wreathing
Like waves embrace the sea..."
“Don’t be afraid,
Be sure your eyes are telling you the truth,
Oh! My Endymion, will I bring you out from your trance?
‘Cause I have come…
…To take you away with me
to our eternal dream”.
Let it done!
And with a dagger
He sealed their love.
So his body
Will never leave
From besides her tomb

4. A Death Like Veil

Each new Sun, my hope fades
See the face, once lively and fresh,
Now each day paler and duller of my Beloved
Plunge me into a deep black well
Of impotency and sorrow exalted.
An spiral of grief devour my love,
And clouds my eyes over,
Staring how Death settles in the bed of my Beloved
Embracing her strongly,
Stealing thy breath for ever after.
Her voice, once time playful and coloured,
Hardly resounds in the room.
Her smile, like the candle that light us, low;
Her eyes, enough to talk,
Open gates of Soul, like always before.
Dread grips my heart,
Although she bravely caress
The tear across my cheek descends.
I kiss the hand of the one who led me to love
And now is leaving...
...Forever more.
Her hand stopped gripping mine’s
Her eyes, vitreous,
Extinguished like exhausted flame
Her body a cold statue
That my embrace will not warm, never!
The Bleeding evening skies darkens
When the third Sun since her death
Plunges in the glowing horizon.
Whilst veiling her grave
In the bleak graveyard besides the sea
Where the clamour of the waves
Seems to my cries go with.
An impulsive assault of my shattering passion,
A wishful remembrance of caress her silken plaited hair,
Made me thy tomb profane.
Before my eyes the coffin soon I saw,
On its cover
Written were the grave words:
“My beloved from the earth torn”
...All at once her prison I opened
And her face and hair
I could finally touch.
The bell tolls under an ash-coloured sky,
Tears fall whilst clouds mourn
The breeze a dulcet threnody
That fills the immense inner emptiness.
As lovely with life as within,
Her face still with blush gleams at night
Like almost awakening from a deep dream,
Her voice He awaits to hear say:
“...Come with me...”
How surprised I was
Seeing her eyelids overcome
The tremendous weight
Of Eternal Night!
Alive was my Beloved!
Ripped is the uncertain Veil of Death
That forever tried to take us apart.
With the triumphant drumbeat of my heart,
And with the one I love must hold in my arms,
Deeply stirred Now I shout: (to the skies)
“My beloved from the earth torn”
