Track Name: Still With You
Still with you my love; as your wrists lay open on the floor.
I’ll take these pills left by the bed and follow you
closely where you led.

Now my head is spinning, God say this is a dream.
Thought you’d never leave me, now I’m left with no feeling at all.
Why’d you go and die and leave me here
To pass around these roses? Is this my fault?

Still with you my love, even though you’re far away.
I’ve nothing left to give, my darling. You were all my strength.

Now my head is spinning, God say this is a dream.
Thought you’d never leave me,
now I’m left with no feeling at all.
Why’d you go and die and leave me here,
Pounding on the floor with bleeding fists?
Is this my fault?

…And I will never leave your side.
…And I will throw away my life.
Track Name: The Descent
What is this? Chill the air. I am falling through the floor.
Who is it that really cares if I make it anymore?
And this is not working. I’m spiraling out.
Pieces of heaven are falling to the ground.

You were always on my mind, but, this is not right.

You were so innocent, since when did you feel this way?
None of this makes much sense. It’s a slap in the face.

You were always on my mind, but, this is not right.
The end comes for all in due time, my fallen angel.

What is this? I’ve fallen from the sky.
This place is dim and grey where bodies writhe.

…and of all the sad romances and all the ill-begotten chances of my life,
I had finally found the one—the one who overshines the sun
but she took her life.

You were always on my mind, but, this is not right.
The end comes for all in due time, my fallen angel.
Track Name: Lead Astray
You tore yourself away from me without a word.
But, can I find you in this place?
I’ve walked a thousand footsteps,
still no sign of changing ‘scapes.

You were the apple of my eye, but, i’ll never learn.
Can I find you? Or am I trapped inside without a way out?
The soles upon my feet begin to burn.
Am I forced to walk alone forever?

The sky of smog and pools of blood,
cool not the pavement of ash I walk upon this day.
Ten thousand naked bodies;
I’ve seen buried in the ash.

Am I just fodder for the laments of this place?
Or am I to tear apart this earth and find your heart out?
This is the apotheosis of despair.
Please let there be some voice to guide me out of here.

You’re here alone with my by your side.
(But, who are you?)
I’m here to see your fantasies through.
(Please help me find—the one…)
Come along with me and we’ll dance through the night.
(I’ve died…)
You’ve come so far, let me do you right.
(…can’t lose sight.)
Just when you think you’ve had your fill…
(But this—feels better than my fight.)
…They’ll come alive.

You were the apple of my eye, but I’ll never learn.
Please let me rest; slip away and find some comfort here.
The fabric of their flesh feels sensual.
My thoughts do fray into fragments in the void.
Track Name: Of Despair
The urge to find you grows stronger every day.
While the memory of your ruby lips slowly fades away.
In a dream, you were crying out, but the wings of death take you further away.

I’m closing the door. I’ve lead you astray my wounded flower.
I hope I have not sealed your fate.

Now in this silence, confidence is left at bay.
While the ruining of your innocence could well be under way.
And here I sit, contemplating my failure’s depth.
Heavy waves of guilt take my every breath away.

I’m closing the door. I’ve lead you astray my wounded flower.
I hope I have not sealed your fate.

Forsake my reason. How did I sink this low?
Blinded by passion. Now hope is gone.

I’m closing the door. I’ve lead you astray my wounded flour.
…tearing my heart out.

I am frozen.
All I wanted was to see her eyes.
To be chosen,
is a fate that I can’t recognize.
Track Name: In Shadows
I tear at the heart of you and you have torn yourself from me.
and I’m frightened by the look of things.
Afraid of losing the look in your eye when you see me.

I am wide awake and you’re right there. You don’t see me at all.
and I am full of doubt that you’ll wake up from the spell you’re in.

You’re eyes must be open to find your way out of here.
I’m so alone and full of fear.
Viscera fills this place. To share the filth of the damned will be our fate,
if we can’t get out of here.

I tear at the heart of you and you remain a fool for me.
I don’t remember anything at all. Except the demons, the blood, the tears and the dying.

…and I only want you.
Carry me away from here.
Frightened and alone.
All that I want is to guide you to your home.

I am wide awake and you’re right there. You don’t see me at all.
and I am full of doubt that you’ll wake up from the spell you’re in.

You’re eyes must be open to find your way out of here.
I’m so alone and full of fear.
Viscera fills this place. To share the filth of the damned will be our fate,
if we can’t get out of here.

My whole world is darkness and I am far from home.
Will you be the one to light my way?
I will light your way.
You are my heart.
I get carried away at the thought of your love.
Track Name: Lifting The Veil
What the hell is this motherfucker? I’ve always been an atheist fucker.
I’ve never believed in this. The masses are full of piss.
Fuck your god and fuck your demons. I got my truth. I got my reason.
You give me faith, I’ll give you treason. Now the blasphemer’s full of shit.

Life is short and full of regret.
Kill the beast; become the godhead.

So you think you can go? Just like that?

Who the hell are you, untrustworthy?
Speak your name and truth I pray thee;
‘cause I’ve grown so weary. I do not have time for thee.
This forsaken place pulls on me. I curse the ground and all it’s armies.
I do not have time to bandy treaties. I must away from this.

My stained heart is shrouded in debt.
You gave me fate but I’m not done yet.

So you think you can go? Just like that?

What you don’t understand my son,
is there are many gods in here.
All those living inside the heads of men.
There are many gods in here.
All of them do envy your path.
And all to you do jeer.
Replacing their fate with a chain of blood;
carving out the heart to fill the hole with fear.
The rook spoke truth which you cast aside,
for in your heart it drew fear.
To claim this realm through patricide
when all you want is out of here.
Sati, Sati, your path will not set you free.
Kill Me. Kill Me. Kill Me.

So you think you can go? Just like that?
Track Name: These Darker Things
You are some kind of ghost and you stole my place.
This knife stuck in my back is there to stay.

Heaven knows that you are hidden from the world.
You’ll always try to walk away from these darker things.

Your life, shattered and frail, is in this keep.
Know that, chosen or not, your debt is steep.

Heaven knows that you are hidden from the world.
You’ll always try to walk away from these darker things.

Never mind my poison words. Never mind my twisted face.
You’ll move on from this world, claiming hate as your fate.

I am a ghost drowning in this wake.
My veins are cold in this sea of hate.

Heaven knows that you are hidden from the world.
You’ll always try to walk away from these darker things.
Track Name: A Part Of Nothing
So here am I, so much a part of nothing.

They stole you away from me.
But, who the hell am I,
that they should care to ruin my life.?

So here am I, so much a part of nothing.
Cognizances is a funny thing.

What does it mean to live if all are condemned to die
and live forever in the afterlife?

So here am I, a slave to fate and an immortal life.
Is this all real?
What the hell does anything really mean?

To follow on this path, is the darkest seed.
So here am I, so much a part of something.
Real evil is the condemner of the condemner.
Track Name: Reprise
I have landed here ‘cause you laid a trap for me.
For all those things you said.
Time seems to linger on, but you have lost your hold here.
For all those things you said.

Pain is never ending and this is all a lie. You had me hypnotized.
The way out is not through your sick and twisted lies.

‘Round and ‘round this night. Fate cuts like a knife.
Sheltered here. Safe within. At least, so it seems.

You can’t help me; help me find my way—out of this place.
You could never, never. With your forked tongue,
you could never give me what I want.
I can’t understand why I’d walk that way. Hold your wicked hand.
You could never, never. With your forked tongue,
you could never give me what I want.

Pain is never ending; and for me tonight, forsaking this fate is ever paramount.
With each new ending it is easy to surmount
the hate and disease that is built up in this lie.
So I much forge on and find a way, find a way…

You can’t help me; help me find my way—out of this place.
You could never, never. With your forked tongue,
you could never give me what I want.
I can’t understand why I’d walk that way. Hold your wicked hand.
You could never, never. With your forked tongue,
you could never give me what I want.

Pain echo’s my sighs.
Vain are all my cries.

…and now, I’ve slowly shut the door.
I’ve realized that…

You can’t help me; help me find my way.
With your forked tongue, you could never give me what I want.
I can’t understand why I’d walk that way.
Hold your wicked hand. You could never give me what I want.
You can’t help me, help me find my way. With your forked tongue,
you could never give me what I want.
