TREES OF ETERNITY LYRICS

1. My Requiem


Light
Blistering, so bright
Re-align my core
Lenses open wide
Coming into form
The imprint of a life

Too late you’re calling out my name
To raise me up out of my grave
Alive in memory I’ll stay
If you shun these waters where I lay

Night
Curtains coming down
Into the shade I stray
Losing all I’ve found
To my own dismay
My season has come to an end

Too late you’re calling out my name
To raise me up out of my grave
Alive in memory I’ll stay
If you shun these waters where I lay

Leave me to rest
To drained to rise
To try to detect
Any light at the end of the tunnel…

Too late…


2. Eye Of Night


See all the colours fading
Out with the sun
Season of sombre darkness
Again, it has begun
Cursed by recurring cycles
Raised to be undone

Lost is this cause you're mourning
Its death stands at your door
Break under the pressure forming
Or embrace it to your core

Behind closed eyes, see the signs

No faith to hold on to
Let seasons evolve through the night
The all-waking eye
Is your rising sun
No truth to hold you
Let peace enfold you, it's alright
To rely on light
From the eye of night

The future stands veiled in opaque lace
A figure without form
That changes with every fear you face
And every dawn

No faith to hold on to...


3. Condemned To Silence


[feat. Mick Moss of Antimatter]

Reach through your mind, internal sky
Endless glide into the I
Soul encaged, trapped behind your eyes
Until it’s saved, by sharing its light
and darkness…

Save my immortal Soul
From its own chains
From a fate worse than death
Condemned to silence
To turn away
Implode and fade

Days pass me by, carved out of time
I transpire before my own eyes
No decay can touch a fire
But I choke my flame, in fear of shining too bright
or too faintly…

Save my immortal Soul
From its own chains
From a fate worse than death
Condemned to silence
To turn away
Implode and fade

We don’t become who we dream of
If we don’t face our own demons
If we shun what conceals us
We go blind to that which frees us… if we shun

Reach through your mind, internal sky
Endless glide into the I


4. A Million Tears


A million things
I want to say
But I shield my face
and turn away
Swallowing my words
Silenced by shame

A million tears
I want to cry
But I shield my face
and dry my eyes
Swallowing my hurt
Breaking inside

Please stay here with me
Just hold me while I bleed myself dry
See straight into me
Just look beyond the tears in my eyes

A million things
I wish you would say
Even if I fall
that you will stay
And none of my flaws
can turn you away

Please stay here with me
Just hold me while I bleed myself dry
See straight into me
Just look beyond the fear in my eyes

[Bridge]
Like a circle around me
Is the prison of this boundary
I need a storm to break it down
Shield your eyes from the fire light
But please don’t turn away from my side
I am not that - which I fight

Every tear I cry
Burns a way through my eyes
where I see through my lies

Every tear I cry
makes trails in the ice
where I am warm inside


5. Hour Of The Nightingale


Weep
Not for martyrs
Raise your head
Saline waters
Won't raise the dead
Grief will haunt those who forget
That night is not the end
Embrace this
As a nightingale in song
In the darkest hour of shadows she belongs
Her voice reflects the colours of dawn.

Raise
Not a fortress
To protect
From what the waters
Might reflect
Grief will wash those
Who caress
The night
As though its theirs…
Embrace this
As a nightingale in song
In the darkest hour of shadows she belongs
Her voice reflects the colours of dawn.

There's an ocean of despair
Where the road must end
All souls must pass there
For what is broken to mend
On an island I will wait…
For you to raise.

Embrace this
As a nightingale in song
In the darkest hour of shadows she belongs
Her voice reflects the colours of dawn

It pierces like an arrow through a storm.


6. The Passage


An eye in the night appears as something awakens
Into the silent sphere of nothing created

Mother of time she breathes
Summons the autumn leaves
Turning the wheel of history
Constant change is her name

Into the void I breathe
life as it swallows me
sinking into the hollow Tree of Eternity
as winter buries her seed

[Chorus:]
Time – another inevitable lie
Taken in the undertow of life
We gravitate to annihilate
The coals of our fire

Circles of life and seasons
Imprints of our achievements
Carved in the aether and in
The eyes of the one
Who brings the night and the dawn

[Chorus]

Time – another inevitable price

Tides are my emotions
Water my tears and ice
Is time frozen
Stored in the memory of a sigh

Time – another
Inevitable price
Paid when the river of life
In our veins runs dry
The waking moments
That pass before our eyes
Are all we take to our graves.


7. Broken Mirror


a piece of me in your eyes
Reminds me of what's forgotten
I need to get closer to the fire
And feel my own reflection

A piece of me needs to die

A seed of the fatal kind
No roots to grow and and thrive
Some things weren't meant to stay alive
Aborted while still in mind

You gave me a sword to pierce the lie
Serrated edge for the demon inside
A moment I'm torn between two tides
But all I need I bear inside

Fear is a self-destructing fire
That burns what's dead and dry
Tears clean the wound that's left behind
When a shadow is forced to into light

You gave me a sword to pierce the lie
Serrated edge for the demon inside
A moment I'm torn between two tides
But all I need I bear inside

Broken mirror beauty divides
Though it's an illusion
It can cut like a knife

Don't try to give me
What I think I desire
It's mine to find

You gave me a sword to pierce the lie
Serrated edge for the demon inside
A moment I'm torn between two tides
But all I need I bear inside


8. Black Ocean


Oh my love
will me make it through this night?
Overshadowed
by our minds

Do we
further entwine?
through the

Ocean
Of deep and endless night
Ocean
Calling from inside

No tomorrow
No where to hide
Ocean of sorrow
Just taken by the tide

To be
further aligned
to the

Ocean
Of deep and endless night
Ocean
Calling from inside



9. Sinking Ships


To know her is to see
that nothing is as it seems
She’ll show her true face when you’re
stripped of all belief
Sweet tyrant, laying out the course with what you need
To send you through the veils
of Eternity

Crack me open or I’ll go down
on this sinking ship, don’t leave
me to drown
Still the water bears the sound
of my eternal plea
and all I found

And all I will…

She calls you with a mirage
Of what you want to see
You fall into her arms
As she shatters all your dreams
Sweet violence, aimed to crack the shell from which you bleed
And send you through the tree of Eternity.

Crack me open or I’ll go down
on this sinking ship, don’t leave
me to drown
Still the water bears the sound
of my eternal plea
And all I found

And all I will…


10. Gallows Bird


[feat. Nick Holmes of Paradise Lost]

A red sun on the horizon
marks the hour of your call
Somber is the one whose eyes are still veiled
Watching your departure
as mine watch you arrive…

Your hands are tied
Your mask applied
The mark of shame
you wear to all eyes

No glimpse of light
can touch your mind
So black inside
as you face your crime

Mmm…
Dreams are unable to come
Mmm…
with you on this journey that's just begun

Not a sigh
As your noose is tied
Is it pride,
or are you frozen inside?

Mmm…
Fear is unable to come
Mmm…
with you on this journey that's just begun.

How can I make peace with my path
when life has come to this?
Chased by the shadow of my past
Eclipsed by what lies ahead

As the last ray of hope is lost,
fight and resistance
Nothing remains to hold
me to this existence

If the song of the gallows bird
is the messenger between worlds
Deliver me from a bitter past
So I may find rest at last

[Bird:]
Why?

Hear the blackbird's song
A fallen man's beacon
The sunrise – paints your eyes
Rays of light chase away the night

The ships have come ashore
Parting the storm
Though the tide bears – all your nightmares
Sails of white come to take you home

As I bear you on board
A circle is formed
Horizon to horizon
Life begins where a journey ends
