LYRICS


Black Flowers


This Pantheon is empty
All my faith is gone
The old bell will sing
The litany of the dying

	Black flowers 
	For my black heart
	Laid down
	In a black soil

Fly away my spirit
From these wasted dreams
Let me tear apart
This veil of tenebra

	Black flowers 
	For my black heart
	Laid down
	In a black soil

Crimson Vessel


So I drink the venom
Black and thick as the night
So I inject the fluid
Dark and cold, in my veins

	Crimson Vessel 
	I follow your stream
	Red ocean
	Of thousand snakes

Grind me with your coils
Lick me with your tongue
Bite me with your fangs
And consume my essence

	Crimson Vessel 
	I follow your stream
	Red ocean
	Of thousand snakes

Dark Water


This hopeless emptiness
This motionless sky
These damned shores
And the infinite ocean

Without a light
I am hollow
Without a colour
I am dead

	Dark Water
	I flow in you
	Dark Water	
	I can't feel

This is the oblivion 
And I am nothing
A shell in the sand
A whisper in the wind

Without a light
I am hollow
Without a colour
I am dead

	Dark Water
	I flow in you
	Dark Water	
	I can't feel

Flaming Moon


I am beneath your skin
So you are my blood
The sacrifice I made
Is still a part of me

Years are gone
But I am here
Forever I am
Inside your soul

	Dance with a thunder
	Dance with a storm
	Dance with a flaming moon!

This crimson river
is taking me away
Your tears are mine
And my heart is yours

Years are gone
But I am here
Forever I am
Inside your soul

At midnight
fire walks with us

	Dance with a thunder
	Dance with a storm
	Dance with a flaming moon!

Nothing Here


This room is too cold
No light at all
Just darkness close to me
This never-ending grief

Inside my mournful heart
Frozen in my emptiness
Tears, too many tears
Lies, too many lies
 
	There is nothing here
	Nothing left but pain!

Fallen and lost I am
Left alone in misery
Day by day a tragedy
The drama of our existence

Inside my mournful heart
Frozen in my emptiness
Tears, too many tears
Lies, too many lies

	There is nothing here
	Nothing left but pain!

Of Thorns and Lies


I tore my heart off my breast
Could you see it was still bleeding?
And put it on a velvet pillow
Could you take care of it?
I kneeled in front of you
Could you ever be pitiful?
When I was offering it to you
Could you wish more from me?

Deceived
I let myself be fooled again
Deceived
I let myself be caught in trap.

You whipped my very soul
You ripped off my own heart
But you sneer never disappeared
While the tortures were going on.

Despite any good advice
I went on wasting my time,
I was pretending to see
A love there was not,
there was never been.
Nest of roses and thorns
but the smell was already faded,
and the ache still remains
and the shame still remains.

I let this nightmare haunt my wakes
and sleeps.

Sound of (e)Motion


Still I hold your heart 
In misery
Still I grasp your hand
Too cold
Still I embrace your soul
Far away
Still I shape your flesh
With fear

Let me fall
Deeper and deeper
Let me know
How can I exist  

Still I erase my past
Too sad
Still I stand aside
In silence
Still I taste your fire
So red
Still water runs deep
No colour

	I hear a sound of Emotion
	Down in my hell, no Motion

Stormcrow


Bringer of the end 
You are the eternal night!

I summon the past
As fragmented memories
I behold the future
As thousand visions

	Stormcrow 
	Dark velvet wing

I hear a thunder
And it is crimson
I feel the rain
And it is black

	Stormcrow 
	Dark velvet wing

Vox arcana


I extract the essence of black
From the deepest water
It is so pure and cold
And I am drowning within

I consume the blood
Of the endless void
Lost in the womb of night
The stone is talking to me

	Speak to me, Vox Arcana
	Speak to me, and reveal your secrets

The voice is calling me 
From below and beyond

I enter the gateway
Surrounded by flames

 	Speak to me, Vox Arcana
	Speak to me, and reveal your secrets

Without a word


I am the shapeless void 
	at the gates of nonexistence,
I am the nameless hope 
	at the edge of a raving madness,
I am the wingless soul 
	in search of everlasting peace.

Not a dream I want to dream
Not a memory I want to recall
Not a thought I want to waste

An other sweeping stroke sweeping stroke
that smithereens my confidence,
An other speechless denial
that's grinding my frayed nerves.

Without a word I can't stand
Without a soul I can't remain
I have to face this frightening void
Sinking with fear in the melting nightfall.

Left alone with my own pain
stitching up every wound,
weathering all the storms
rising again after the fall.
I need to find the strength
deep inside myself
to let me fly away once more,
to fly away from you.

Cold Lake


I am the rain, a morning dew
I am a tear, a lost dream
I am the soil, mud and worms
I am a stone, no memory...

	Cold Lake 
	Black Water

I feel the pain, my demise
I feel the dark, deadly fog
I feel the storm, coming now
I feel nothing, nothing more...

	Cold Lake 
	Black Water

This haunted place damned in sorrow,
cursed in agony 

December


A frozen wind is blowing wild
a frozen moon is shining

A dying sun will rise no more
a dying soul is fading

Without a light I am lost
without a dream no hope

Into the void I am falling
Into a shade I'm waiting...

	Winter Cold
	December

A frozen land is lying here
a frozen mist is coming

A dying heart will beat no more
a dying candle will burn

Without a tear I am nothing
without a fear I am a liar

Into the dark I am hollow
Into the realm of ice...

	Winter Cold
	December

Nocturnal


Beyond my dreams
and the ivory gate

Inside the womb
and the ebony cave

(I) Let the wind chill me
(I) let the rain soak me

The moon aflame, a silver light 

	Into the sea Ethereal
	Into the dark Nocturnal

The majesty of night 
the crown of many stars

The realm of equinox
the throne of emptiness

(I) Let the shade hide me
(I) let the fire blaze me

The moon aflame, a silver light 

	Into the sea Ethereal
	Into the dark Nocturnal

The obscure I


I know the house
at the end of the road

I've seen the well
how deep is it?

I cross the gate 
beyond any light

Erase the fear,
the silent enigma

I embrace the dark
at the edge of dawn

I fall again
into a vortex of soul

I cry in agony
no escape, no hope

Behold the flame,
lord of oblivion

	Lost inside, the obscure I
	A cold maze, the obscure I

Regret, despair, the nameless child
Red fire, black rain, a void of tenebra
Absence of light, fall of creation
Insanity, lunacy, nightfall (of heart...)

	Lost inside, the obscure I
	A cold maze, the obscure I

Silent Grave

I am the child of war
Trench and bones, forsaken land
I hear the bell of scorn
Ruin and wreck, ghost of death 

	Chamber of sleep, silent grave
	Crypt of sorrow, silent grave!

I see the flag of hate
Misery and gloom, the voice of the dead
I pour my blood on stone
Wood and trees, forlorn in time

	Chamber of sleep, silent grave
	Crypt of sorrow, silent grave!

I was a pond of darkness,
In my heart no cross is missing

White Shade


No hope for the dying
No hope for the living
My time is come to leave
This veil is torn apart 

	White Shade
	Pale flower
	Eternal shining!

You are my bleak phantom
My grim ghost of winter
Beyond the forest of doom
I know you shall return

	White Shade
	Pale flower
	Eternal shining!






















































































Dying Fall


I have seen the tragedy 
through the eyes of war 
I have heard the screams
of thousand lost children
I don't believe your words
I don't believe your lies

Hypocrisy and sanctimony
the sunset of mankind
Your greed and lust
the gate to our extinction
No sacrifice no cross
for the light has failed

	Red Light 
	Of a dying fall
	A burning fire 
	Of a funeral pyre

I don't believe your words
I don't believe your lies

Your book of misery 
Your chains of slavery
Your tyranny of despair
Shall come to an end
God is dead in my soul
I am one with nature 

	Red Light 
	Of a dying fall
	A burning fire 
	Of a funeral pyre

Illusion


All my life devote
Considering my behaviours
On others people
Considering others behaviours
On myself

       Close your eyes
       You'll feel God
       Open your eyes
       Enjoy your Illusion

Breath now, slow your heartbeat
Close your eyes and look inside
Feel your nothingness
Feel your life, 
take a look inside!

       Close your eyes
       You'll feel God
       Open your eyes
       Enjoy your Illusion

Focused on looking to feel
Losing in the desert of others being

       Close your eyes
       You'll feel God
       Open your eyes
       Enjoy your Illusion


Land of grief


How many bodies left  for the ravens
How many martyrs facing the oblivion
How many tears poured on the soil
How many signs of the human greed

This sky is crimson again

	Land of sorrow
	Land of our grief
	Nothing will remain
	In our dying hearts

How many sights of our gloomy fate
How many souls dancing on our graves
How many storms (shall) come at the horizon
How many rivers (shall) flow with our blood

This sky is crimson again

	Land of sorrow
	Land of our grief
	Nothing will remain
	In our dying hearts

	Land of sorrow
	Land of our grief
	Nothing will remain
	In our dying hearts
	Field of our pain
	Hear a cry of war
	Nothing will remain
	But ashes and dust


Painful shadow


What I passed worries my dreams
Crushing with reasons of things
Traveling fast in the silence of night
Twisted in thoughts like snakes on a prey

It stay hidden into the deep
Waiting to strike and hit
When you’re so thoughtless
When you’re so frail

Undisturbed presence
Painful shadow
Mendaciously absent
Painful shadow

Deceiving myself to be stronger than it
Seeking shelter in daily monotony
I know it can’t hurt me
I know it will kill me

Painful shadow!! 
Painful shadow!! 

Undisturbed presence
Mendaciously absent
Undisturbed presence
Mendaciously absent 


Slow Violence


Slow violence, the path of humanity 
Walk over them and eat their ideals
To become the one and hate everyone

Slow violence, the food of mind
Speculations of human being
Proud process of future individuals

No place for gooders
Just kill that one!
No thought for meanings
Just swallow that soul!

Slow violence, the path of humanity 
Walk over them and eat their ideals
To become the one and hate everyone

Slow violence, the seed of life
Feed the womb of nonsense
For self satisfaction supremacy
Slow violence! 
Slow violence!! 

No place for gooders
Just kill that one!
No thought for meanings
Just swallow that soul!


The shape of lies


Deceit revealed by grins cover
Channeling the flow of world's life 
(the real shape of lies...)
Whispers of fear forced to madness
By divine voices in the appointed path

The real shape of lies
Sneaky mental process 

Shame and dread repressed
Incarnated in a perverted passion
(The real Shape of Lies...)
Judge of a life in lack of reason
Identification of a sick interpretation 

The real shape of lies
White dressed of freedom

So decline is starting
Steady on the feet of blind humanity 
Delirium of death and lust
To feed the hopes of a false essence 

The real shape of lies
Chained by tyranny
