Whispers 05:39
Come follow me into darkness The moon will light our path Eternal eclipse of all light Succumb to your destiny In this undying eve You can never leave the nightmare Lost in between the old world and the new I marvel at your despair In the dark forest I hear whispers among the trees Her voice, so sweetly, luring me Spiraling into darkness Echoes of fallen ones Screaming in horror Running in fear but her presence is lingering nigh Engulfing my spirit Imminent eternal desolation Inanimate, transcending into the bleak Seven spirits summoned my soul Subject to their mastery Never-ending sorrow Lost in the vast expansion of time Infinite night of the immortal

The Fog 07:37
Expressed through the dark infinity On this night, sorrow Giving into this false hope I feel the cold approaching Weakness within Hidden no more On this night, sorrow Finding a way through it all Sever the binds, I must What comes to mind, yet again I curse the spoken word Travel through the black I must On this night, sorrow The chosen path of the distressed Giving into the false hope, yet again All words have been spoken The curse must begin Giving into this false hope I feel the cold approaching Those penetrating eyes So wretched Direct them towards the desolate night As I am the sky O penetrating eyes Feel the cold wind against your skin Watch closely as the fog rolls in The sheer coldness begins

Gaze upon the blackened sky Stars burn bright The span of existence, so mystifying We are a mere fragment of time We are born into the world Void of corruption No consciousness of evil A dying innocence A slow decay into darkness Lost ambitions For withering dreams Tides of sorrow changed our direction Our dreams slowly fade away Contentment we seek but never shall find A treasure we lost at the cradle We are born into the world Void of corruption No consciousness of evil A dying innocence A slow decay into darkness Lost ambitions For withering dreams In one breath A brief moment The curtains of life will close Falling into the great abyss Meet eternity where all is barren Descent into the unknown Our dreams buried in the grave The anguish has ended
5.
Cloaked in a blissful disguise Hiding a tragic secret The consuming damnation cannot be eluded Buried in deceit The dead share secrets of the waters Drowning - a beautiful suicide A cold autumn night She walks alone Her porcelain skin shines in moonlight A phantom from beyond leads her to a peaceful lake The water glimmers and the voice of a calm tide invites her in She looks up at the stars Takes a deep breath And says her final farewell to this earth The abysmal plunge brings euphoria within Silencing her life of woe and misery Long yearning for freedom Grasped by the arms of death
6.
Lost in a dream with no direction Just the one that leads to death I can't escape this destiny An evil force stirs within In the eventide, alone in the deafening silence Images appear as I descend into slumber Eerie premonitions of my own demise Unable to break free from its grip of affliction A fear that follows me deep into the night Falling ever deeper into its dark dungeon Cataclysmic sensations The shadows lurk about This fiendish villain ever present within Try to awaken from the relentless nightmare The shadows are drawing near I feel a soft caress upon my skin The air, it thickens, life will soon expire The howls of death drown out the silence Paralyzed in panic of the crushing weight upon me For I am dead and darkness surrounds me
7.
Alone in a vast desolate meadow Beset by thickets of dense trees The breath of wind blows savagely beneath the web of lightning across the sky I feel a presence A faint voice carries through the storm A silhouette appears against the illuminated sky Approaching in your burial gown Your empty eyes gaze upon me Inflicting pain on the undead Fear and dismay cloud my mind Dance among the fallen leaves I watch you from afar Many years since we played Amongst these old trees Harsh gusts of wind Crack the limbs of surrounding trees A ghostly mass assembles Thousands against one You place your curse upon me So I'll join you in the land of the dead Gasping for air The mass tries to take my soul Disguised as the one I once knew I realize it was never you Depart from here Creatures of the endless slumber

Palingenesis 08:10
Undeserving of the beauty she bestowed Neglected into ruins Ignorance has soiled the dirt, tainted the waters Evoking this pandemic revenge She fantasized about the day When she would wipe human waste away Her spiteful grin grows in perpetuum There is no hiding, our time is nigh The earth quakes in anger Storms sweep across the land Buildings lay in waste Majestic fields burn red with fire Undeserving of the beauty she bestowed Neglected into ruins Archaic mountains shatter and blanket the past The annihilation of man Oceans rise, tides sweep over the nations Artifacts scattered and we are battered among the waves Drowning in our own destruction Suffocated by her rage Her omnipotence has conquered Aeons of creation now barren A new beginning, dawn of palingenesis Age of renewal She fantasized about the day When she would wipe human waste away Her spiteful grin grows in perpetuum There is no hiding, our time is nigh
