Final Form 05:54
where sky greets fire and time clings to the mind self illusions flickering images shadows of pantomime gestures of a forgotten age creation from wisdom failed reflections draw near grasping at the formless dreams speak gibberish thoughts stutter and slur mind rambles on aimlessly drifting by desire depth of binding nightmare lifted from time and space a fragile attempt night circles and falls inside burning in the eyes placidity encloses into final form dreams speak gibberish thoughts stutter and slur mind rambles on aimlessly
2.
that in realization ceases to be mine in existence in visions arising in nothing but having in everything see in the distance in the span of dreams to sleep in the birth of the wind and fly in the consciousness of your mind time coming true if only to need me in encompassing love falling into the sea
3.
ignorant human's grave in the domain of dreams sleepy wandering fantasies in the air captured addicted spirit in the world of the dead cease to exist, body without a soul, senseless stare when time cascades into the dawn when life clings to the weary frame when binding disbelief takes hold when i dissolve into the rain who can come and go gazing at the stars in the sky journey's difficult for some the passage into the next world comes where angels fly into the dawn bound by chains restrained to walls where devils claw in the night tortured souls igniting flaming fall when time cascades into the dawn when life clings to the weary frame when binding disbelief takes hold when i dissolve into the rain
4.
sincerity in patience words in heaven lost obliquely in my mind faithfully gone by we are following the same path recognize the loss like water in my hands weakness takes a hold it very well may not be me i'm solidifying nothing get out of this thinking into fits
5.
each substance of grief, hath twenty shadows which shows like grief itself, but is not so for sorrows' eye, glazed with blinding tears divides one thing entire to many objects like perspectives, which gazed upon show nothing but confusion eyed awry, distinguished form, find shapes of grief more than himself to wail which for things true weeps though things imaginary for sorrows' eye, glazed with blinding tears divides one thing entire to many objects
6.
-part 1, vocal A- existential anxiety vicious circling greed, hate and delusion becoming me encompassing moments life as becoming -part 1, vocal B- recognition of desire generalizing fear in body and in mind clinging to strength perpetuation of existence arising only to cease conscious identification -part 2, vocal A and B- a point in moments joined yet free this arising, that arises reflections on wisdom a state of suffering a longing that now bleeds -part 3- this arising, that arises perpetuation of existence arising only to cease
7.
the night dragged by on the altar of repose with something funereal about the white rose the deep rumbling of the organ screamed revenge for the hours of desolation within kneeling there in prayer she wept for the loss of her life and the boy who slept never to see her again in the falling rain she cried out loud, she cried in pain lost to him and lost to her the love flies blindly in an empty world finding naught but pain and death inside leaves our world to hate and desire the illumination in the chapel dimmed as the candle lit lamps burned in the wind the draft of God came in to pray with those inside who remembered judgment day come Monday the black robes find it as quiet as sin the day before, the crowds came in, to get a piece of the sacrament that can save them from the memory of that rainy day if there's pain inside - love will die if there's hate inside - love will die
8.
moonlight filters inward caressing blackness looks on i reach for you, bring me near wide eyes i drop downward shadowy depths in dreams shoving walls aside this is where i find my fear the wasteland climbs inward within my mind reaching deeper pushing you into darkness shadowy depths in dreams shoving walls aside

Primevil 03:24
reaching toward empyrean abode of paradise above ignorant in life, innocent in death the ones who took to dreaming you can find them waiting in a realm of fire, ambit of light emblazoned in their minds an elegy of fright are eyes like stars burning bright like pinholes in the sky and how far can they see elusive faces turning white hidden faces in the dark lie in the fear of secrets afraid of surprise, superstition cries words that deny their feelings gone without a whisper in the shelter of the ground bodies curl like broken molds disappear without a sound are eyes like stars burning bright like pinholes in the sky and how far can they see elusive faces turning white descend from flurries in the clouds the captives in the ground

Cut Me 03:51
ocean waves glow in the moon light sensory deprivation moonlight shines eerie glow reflects from his face like driving rain like drowning angels the blood that flows red then blue oxygen deprivation enter a new state of mind as then angels fly to catch me like razor sharp moonlight like drowning angels ocean waves glow in the moonlight I'm motionless and alone angel's wings glow in the moonlight glorious and white as stone (and alone) like falling stars there's nothing that can hurt me
12.
my mouth opened by a scream my body bound in chains my soul corrupted by darkness my heart filled with pain my eyes burned with images my ears ringing with bells my stomach taken by nausea my hands pierced with nails body to body, fear to fear eye to eye, tear to tear body to body, pain to pain mouth to mouth, again and again… all that i wanted, all that i could of your deep dark splintered heart i do what i know, i do what i should dear god don't tear me apart my eyes saw your troubles my mouth spoke your words my ears heard your screams my ideas destroyed your world body to body, fear to fear eye to eye, tear to tear body to body, pain to pain mouth to mouth, again and again… all that i wanted, all that i could of your deep dark splintered heart i do what i know, i do what i should dear god don't tear me apart all that you wanted, all that you could see the pain in my eyes drive your anger into my soul don't know the reasons why all that i wanted, all that i could of your deep dark splintered heart i do what i know, i do what i should dear god don't tear me apart
13.
the gods are crying and the clouds are blowing overhead the gathering in black for the mourning of the dead rain falling in torrents bringing life to the ground no way to break the feelings to which i am bound a single black dress flows whispfully in the wind the woman underneath her heart as black as sin no way to understand the feelings she has found no way to break the feelings to which she is bound

Altered Form 05:02
where sky greets fire and time clings to the mind self illusions flickering images shadows of pantomime gestures of a forgotten age creation from wisdom failed reflections draw near grasping at the formless dreams speak gibberish thoughts stutter and slur mind rambles on aimlessly drifting by desire depth of binding nightmare lifted from time and space a fragile attempt night circles and falls inside burning in the eyes placidity encloses into final form dreams speak gibberish thoughts stutter and slur mind rambles on aimlessly

Cold 04:26
the beautiful have come to take me away a deep dark grave awaits its day the coldness of the flowers is my only warmth for the cold is the darkness that is left all alone cold eyes gaze upon the cold stone tear filled eyes as she mourns all alone the beautiful have come and taken me away the deep dark grave has seen its day the flowers have died the people gone home I'm left cold in the darkness left cold and all alone
