Track Name: Fallen Away
Fallen Away

Grieve for a lasting night, walk where the fallen lie.
I came to meet this moment, and I came for all.
These walls will fall for me now.
“Bow your heads and know my name.”
As all feeling left me, you fall, helpless to my reign.

Well I’ve seen what became, it’s fallen away.
“Release all your pain, and fall unto me.”
Well I’ve seen what became, we wade through the blinding light, fall tonight,
You live for me.

Lose yourself in the embers light,
“So you came, so you die.”
You were not meant to walk this life, turn away from helpless cries.
From this moment all is gone. Through broken skies a sun once shone.
I will meet you there, without a care, I am forevermore.

Farewell to wistless skies, for them no dawn will rise.
As frozen sands now cover, anything that was.
I prayed that I could end this reign, saw how hopeless all became.
Now the sands embrace me, and cover what remains.
I’ve seen what became, it’s fallen away.
“Release all your pain, and fall unto me.”
Well I’ve seen what became, we wade through the blinding light, fall tonight,
You live for me.
Well I’ve seen what became, we die for this lasting light
As we wait, souls entwined.
Well I’ve seen what became, we die for this lasting light, we fall tonight
Well I’ve seen what became
Fallen away.
Track Name: A Bitter End
A Bitter End

Give to me your everything, your eyes show a life of shame.
As we fall unto our own, are the pages set in stone?
A bitter end, that came to me.
Sober are these nights, far from your warming light, they took you from my life…
Ripped away this heart, left me with the pain.
Can I bear a life in vain?

This fire burns forevermore (I rise above my lonely throne)
This fire burns forevermore (It fuels, all I’ve ever known)

Gave to you my everything, you the queen and I the king.
But life’s a twisted tale as you slipped beyond the veil.
A bitter end, but life goes on.
I remember smiles, held you til the morning’s light, never shall it die.
Memories I hold, help me through the nights,
Now the stars will hold your smile.

This fire burns forevermore (I rise above my lonely throne)
This fire burns forevermore (It fuels, all I’ve ever known)
I see what we could never know.
Track Name: Beneath The Waning Skies
Beneath the Waning Skies

I wrote, down the final lines.
A life I put to rest, left the past that I detest.
It seems, hopeless and contrived.
The hold it has on me I can never let it be.
And so, misery arrives.
When will is dissipate, as I fall into my broken memories.

And to what end?
As I wade through another hopeless day, to see it all, collapse before me.
And to what end?
Given life to what never should have been.
Another hope, left in this world to fade.

My eyes, hide a thousand scars.
Conceal the shades of me, I could never let you see.
I fell, spiraled ever more.
The chains that bind my hands, ever cursed by your demands.
Once more, misery arrives.
And so I welcome you, it’s the only life, that I ever knew.

Chorus.

For a past left behind.
To a sin trapped in time.
Memories of waning skies, all I see, is the night.
Nightmares seen to believe.
Dim these thoughts, carry me.
Fading light, hard to see,
The sky that wanes now for me.
Forever I lie, beneath waning skies.
Track Name: The Last Goodbye
The Last Goodbye

Like sirens through the snow, the baying of the wolves,
My shattered lands were once so grand, now rubble on the sands.
Broken and alone, with nowhere left to roam,
Yet here I stay my memories of you to lead the way.

Dispel the wind and rain, let winter lay its veil,
The purity of forlorn dreams, the only flame I keep.
Must all things fade away? I hold onto the pain,
Of tragedy as memories of you begin to wane.

Ripped away, fade away, can you fill the void in me again?
And rise to remain.
Longing for that distant flame. Longing for that light to lead the way.
To leave this place.

To find a glimmer through the grey, cast a shadow on dismay,
There shines the beauty of the last goodbye, to leave it far behind.
Let the blizzard fade away, leave it’s blanket on new day,
To a purer land that lies far beyond misery.
Track Name: Elegy
Elegy

See what this life became, to see the ending of this day that fades away,
Everything has come before me.
See now there’s nothing gained, a lie that spawned from elder ways won’t fade away.
What is left, for us to take?

It was a lie we knew so well. It was a sign that came to all.
See the last to die, bitter was the end.
He was a picture left to fade. But he prayed for better days.
Watch a simple man, rise to us and say.

And we take this lie it’s a whole new way,
As we came to life, as we fade away,
But for all we strive, nothings left, to feel the dust that we became.
Mine is the last endeavour.
Mine is the last endeavour. To feel the dawning of new day,
I lapse into your ways.

This wretched serenade, you sang it to me every day, I shy away,
Everything that came before me.
I see what I can be now. Your hold on me will fade tonight, I come to life,
I will rise, to watch you fall.

Another lie we knew so well, as I fade now fall now (we came to life)
bitter was the end.
Another picture left to fade. But he prayed for better days.
Watch a simple man, rise to us and say.

Chorus.

My spirit bound by moonlight. These eyes deny this past life…
Track Name: Poveglia
Poveglia

Shifting lights from the shore, where man he dares to tread no more.
They still wonder this place, and time forgot their name their face.
This whole land is a tomb, their shadows we see by the light of the moon.
And here they remain, a fate that sealed eternal pain.

Sing, forgotten, let us hear.
Damned and betrayed, bound to this place as the world looked on.
Sing, forgotten, make us see.
Poveglia’s lands, what dwells in your sands now your secrets gone?

We are bound to this place, live in death we find no peace.
Hide away from the world, this solitude you would disturb.
And to never know why. We came here to live but you sent us to die,
As we wonder, destined to rise, forevermore with helpless cries.

Sing, forgotten, let us hear.
Damned and betrayed, bound to this place as the world looked on.
Sing, forgotten, make us see.
Poveglia’s lands, what dwells in your sands now your secrets gone?
See the shattered remains, of those that passed within this place,
Roaming these halls, the whispering walls they all curse your name.
And what would they say? Would they ask you “Leave this place”?
We who belong, sing sorrows song.
And we shall forevermore.
Track Name: Just A Fools Hope Remains
Just a Fools Hope Remains

Dispel you horizons so I may foresee what’s to come.
This darkness shall take me away from all I have known.
With ever watching wistful eyes, guiding me away from all I know.

Forever alone as I wonder the pathways unknown,
The distant caress that you gave has all but gone, now.
Basking in night’s cold embrace, away from all the misery of day.

I linger in the night
I see the lie behind this hatred you gave to me.
The beauty of the day that only my eyes can’t see.
And as we move into the night, I pray for day.

Now as you lay down the path a way I must take.
So silent the horror that reigned, and led to the day.
One more night and one more day, another light that’s leading me astray.

I linger in the night
I see the lie behind this hatred you gave to me.
The beauty of the day that only my eyes can’t see.
And as we move into the night, I pray for day.
I pray for this to end, and fall to rest.
Track Name: My Sweet Sorrow
My Sweet Sorrow

Through twisted light…
This perfect moment…
A helpless cry…
I’ll make you mine.
The beginning of my torment, I feel a mist arise.
Creeping through such twisted thoughts, burned within my eyes.
Would I dare to know your pain?
Would I dare to answer why?
With all compassion leaving me, driven by your cries.

It’s through a nightmare’s eyes, that falling skies,
Can end with only I, and you must be my sacrifice.
For the ones I keep inside, only they can see the light.

The glazing of your eyes became, a sea of endless doors,
So behind one there must, be silence, evermore.
Reaping sorrow sweetly see, beyond a silent sea there sleeps,
The answer that I seek, in one so weak.
Give to me your secret. I’ll find it in your eyes. Within your silent distant gaze’
It had to be this way.
Silence will not hide you, I know what lurks inside.
Sing for me, once again. Reveal, what’s mine.

The ones that wait within, won’t give in,
That ever crimson grin, to remind me of those moments.
And I care not for their lives, only care for what’s inside.

So keep your secrets in, as many did,
And many more to come. But I will find the answers.
On the seas within your mind, they remain until their time.
Track Name: As Embers Fade
As Embers Fade

Cast me down beyond the fallen,
Turn me from your doors.
I’m the beast of many burdens,
Or so the story goes.

Broken hands beneath, lift me free, from your shattered seas,
Never break what lies within, I came for all to see.
Why will no one here, stem their fear? Lift these chains from me,
Through the grey there stands but one, who dared to hold my gaze.

See me, speak your words and free me,
I can give so much
To a world that lies in ashes,
Release me with your touch.

So I stand before shattered courts as only one approached;
“Say my name and I shall reign, your pain will go away.”
“He is cursed!” they cried “All shall die!”
He gazed into my eyes..
“Valendries I set you free, now may your will be done.”
We watched the flames as embers fade,
The dying light yet one remains.
The glow of night, fills my life again for the world is ours tonight.
The promise I have made tonight, I make right.
The promise made to change your ways, light the way.

So at last they see
“Bow to me. I kept my every word. But I swore to only one, she who set me free. The cowards you became, cursed my name, I leave you my old fate.
To the sea of endless grey, til kindness calls your name…”
Track Name: The Beckoning Silence
The Beckoning Silence

Through solemn thoughts within my mind, that I could only hope to hide.
A quiet place to contemplate the little joy that I have left.
With nothing left for me to give, take my hands I can’t forgive.
A silence beckoning to me, release your grip and set me free.

And solemnly arise into a figure I, could never hope to be…

Another life,
And as I raise my hands towards the only thing that I could never be.
Another life!

So as I write my final lines, of sadness trapped behind these eyes.
Oh how I wish that you could see, the suffering inside of me.
I cannot take another day. The coldest touch to numb the pain.
The silence beckons ever on, remove the shade that I’ve become.

So softly a silence creeps into all I’ve ever known.
Upon the hill dance the silhouettes, of reapers in the snow.
And as you come, to me, a figure in this mist,
Where we can lie in misery and wait for all to end.
And now as the dawns collapse, and I have seen beyond,
Into the realm of another life where I can be as one.
And as you come, to me, a figure in this mist,
Where we can lie in misery and wait for all to end.

We lie in wait.
Rise above this moment, for I am your embrace.
As we wade through another morning of sorrow and dismay.
Colder grows your touch, as I avert my gaze.
Carry me so carelessly through another hopeless day.
Through hopeless day.
Through hopeless day.
She’s all mine. Well mine is the night.
