Diversion gone bad from time
Bewildered by all this clarity
The aberrations of youth
Making us blind
Gone into a reverie
Visions dripping through my mind
A phantasm with no end
Luring me
Into the silver realm of dreams
Behold the stygian black nightmare
Erotic this yearning
Undulating gaze, whispers breathless
Pry your eyes from under the rose
Lipstick petals crushed
Moonlight pales the resonance of you
Your innocence fades in shadows deep screams
Suffer the lonely days
Final shine for winter eyes
In deep blue dreams of May
Nemesis of heart, friend of mind
A safe calm unmistakable
This anesthetic feel of you and me
Taking shape
Painted kisses coil in waiting
Emptiness bristles beneath my skin
Colder still are the feelings fast fading
Warmed where illusions begin
A taste of me lonely
Swallowed in midnight bliss
The words you whisper
Paints pictures of your kiss
Dark thoughts of old
That does not need saying
Hidden but always lurking
In the deepest of shadows
Silent darkness comes too short
Awake a dreaming child from this blackness
Open eyes, discarding world
Chasing vision you whispered, breathless
Pry your eyes from under the rose
Lipstick petals crushed
Moonlight pales the resonance of you
Your innocence fades in shadows deep screams
Finding my resting place
when the slow dark hours come
Frosty midwinter made moon
Nemesis of heart, friend of mind
A safe calm unmistakable
This anesthetic feel of you and me
Taking shape
Painted kisses coil in waiting
Emptiness bristles beneath my skin
Colder still are the feelings fast fading
Warmed where illusions begin

Oh, I wonder what lies beyond this world
Eternal darkness, must be better than this
Living in hope, aching for your last touch
Will I ever feel again?
Will I ever feel again? Feel…..

Through the darkest hour, my pain unveils
My body feels like an empty shell
Tears once fallen, fallen for the last time
Never will I feel again, never will I feel again
Again….

I should have known that you wouldn’t understand
Believe in nothing, would stay
And darkness covers my sanity
My soul yearns for death
My soul yearns for death

The scream inside you weakens
I grasp a hold but you let go
Don’t leave; I need your pain to grow

Silence fills my mind, my eyes slowly dies
The pain I once knew, fades away

Now give into my torment
Distorts and medicates your mind
My razorblade a gift of love

I feel my last breath, escapes my lips
Finally my soul is free

I should have known that you wouldn’t understand
Believe in nothing, would stay
And darkness covers my sanity
My soul yearns for death
My soul yearns for death

My demon is calling
My demon is calling out for me

You daunt me love with your dirge
In this bed I can no longer lie
The crimson roses surrounding your heart
Like a grave for me, and so beautiful made
Guide me through, safe from all thorns

I go from defeat to defeat with myself
The stakes are to high and I’m drawn
Into this obscurity well
The moonless night is mine

My demon is calling
My demon is calling out for me

These times are over, and I must leave
Only dismay in your eyes
The sound of a sweet child deadens
Thoughts of a past as swift as colibris’ wings
Delirium prison, a dark hell, this can’t go on
I bid thee my farewell

Down the hollow, I hear the voices
Demons call my name
They beckon me from the shadows
Trying to draw me closer
But I know, no one travels down the hollow
It’s a morbid place, home to those who’s lost their way

A gust of wind, you’re not here
Walking towards this apparition
The one I’d love to leave
The one I love to hate

My demon is calling
My demon is calling out for me

A taste of your kiss, soothes my heart
Your eyes, looking at me, but you can’t see
All of my pain, of leaving you this way
My heart eager to speak, but silence screams

How could I have known?
How could I let this go on?
How could I let you go?
How could I have loved you this way……?

In my death I dream of you
I hope I’ll never awake
Cause in my death I dream of you
I hope I’ll never awake…..

The pain in my heart yearning your sweet touch
All my fears, drown into darkness
Drifting away, your eyes looks back at me
I try to reach out, but my scars are to deep

How could I have known?
How could I let this go on?
How could I let you go?
How could I have loved you this way……?

In my death I dream of you
I hope I’ll never awake
Cause in my death I dream of you
I hope I’ll never awake…

A final lament and you’ll be gone
from my mind and soul
Banished to an eternity of silence
Echoing from all the walls
The most sacred of chambers
The last trace of you
Screaming at me, clawing and fighting
but my scarred flesh will hold
Numbed from all the pain
My walls, they will hold

This time no rose petal ground
for you to tread upon
This time no rose petal sheets
cover my bed
This time no tears to drown the
pain that burns your heart
This time it’s you who yearns

You’re alone

Can’t you see that I’m your shadow?
I will never let you go
You are mine and you will follow
Fading are the days of old
Make me bleed; I’ll make you suffer
Don’t you think that I will fold
Your time will come as mine has now
You my shame, I’ll take the pain
Your fear, your scars, I can heal them
All that you are I forgive
Your path will be mine, start walking
Their backs are turned, I’m all there is

I’m the silence that surrounds us
Seeping through our heart that burns
Don’t look back, I’m right behind you
A song with no end, hear the hum

Scream…but no one will hear you
It dies inside your soul, you’ll fall

Watching the crimson veil of dawn
Tearing through silence, like darkness fall
Aching and yearning, twisting in pain
Sorrow once torn, scars from my flesh

Like withering stars, falling through time
Everlasting silence, burning within
Shadows of dreams, awakens in sleep
Burning the scars from its torment dream

Falling through a veil of mist
Blinded by darkness, its touch so sweet
Tasting the silence, the silence within
The embrace of the endless sleep

I heard the darkness, it grieves
I heard the anger, it sleeps
I am the silence of grief
I am the silence of sleep

Feel the nocturnal winds of dreams
Reflections of tears, frozen they scream
Darkness and emptiness, is all I feel
Though silence grows in my soul

Like withering stars, falling through time
Everlasting silence, burning within
Shadows of dreams, awakens in sleep
Burning the scars from it’s torment dream

Darkness embraces the cold winter moon
Like lovers dance in their macabre hold
Searching through aeons, darkness and cold
I’m craving for silence, and silence I found

I heard the darkness, it grieves
I heard the anger, it sleeps
I am the silence of grief
I am the silence of sleep

The pain I felt inside, you swept away
Your breath stilled my heart
A moment for eternity
You lay beside my like melting shadows we drown
Will this moment last?
My thoughts wander…

Do you feel the same?

And I fall into you
Silence whispers my thoughts
And I fall through this night
With you… by my side

The warmth in your voice tore my open
If dreams could ever speak
Would this moment last?
The shadows deep in me
You embraced and tore away
Fragile and alone you held my heart

Will you ever feel the same?

And I fall into you
Silence whispers my thoughts
And I fall through this night
With you… by my side

When I felt your soul
I grasped to my own
Burning in my heart
I reach out for you
And I wonder…

Will you ever feel the same?

And I fall into you
Silence whispers my thoughts
And I fall through this night
With you…

9. Epitaph

Far into the distance lies
the land that I long for
Where my blood runs like
a river, I have to cross
Every breath, How it pains me
Patiently waiting for the
Raven Goddess to come

I’ll free you from your wings
Now fall
When all fails I’ll be here
To embrace you
Your blood is my river
Crossing you over

Send me into a dreamless sleep
Nightmares cease
while my vessel rots away
away
Nothing can penetrate this
numbing stillness
Where I lie and wait for life

The pale winter mistress
collecting the lost souls
where the unfortunate ones
must go

Fall to the ground
and beg for mercy
She’ll break your wings
and let you fall
Enter the Darkland
There you’ll find me
Follow the raven
I’ll sit by my stone

EVIG NATT

Føl vinden av nåttås kall
Ein søken, ein evige strid
Når dagen visne, og mørke fange mitt sinn
Et bilde av deg, brent i nåttås slør

I drømmar, kor livet dør
Ein frihet, øve det som ein gång va
Ein evige søvn, kor smerten blekne bort
Mitt savn, mi sjel

I mitt indra, et nakent sinn
Fanga i sjelås råe favn
I mitt mørke, ein falma drøm
Ei evige kvila, dødens savn

I drømmar om stillhet
To skyggar smeltes t ett
Smeltes t ett

Ein vandring, langs tomme stiar
Uten håp, uten fred
døden, ein følgesvenn, tar mi hånd
og vise vei, inn t si havn

I mitt indra, et nakent sinn
Sart som nåttås evige skygge
I mitt mørke, ein falma drøm
Ei evige kvila, dødens savn

I mitt indra, et nakent sinn
Fanga i sjelås råe favn
I mitt mørke, ein falma drøm
Ei evige kvila, dødens savn

UNTIL THE END

Take me now and I promise forever
My obsession, my darkest fear
I have suffered enough
My dearest, my love

I can’t stay here any longer
I have lingered long enough
Waiting for you
My dearest, my love

Again and again I’ve pleaded
Begged for you to grant my wish
A lifelong dream of you until the end

Alone in life I face this path
I welcome every step towards the dark
A shadow I will no longer cast
Only a faded memory of the past

Come now my love
Finally I feel no pain, no life
Greet me like my dreams
I pray it will last

How I’ve waited for this moment
I don’t ever want to leave
You mend the broken pieces of me

I open my arms to you my daughter
It’s been a long time coming
This time we will make it last
This time I will embrace you heart
The last drops of your blood
It shall live in me forever

I DIE AGAIN

You are nothing, yet you are, everything to me
Cold winter nights, kill me slowly
I welcome every breath, it brings me
Closer to the end, to nothingness

Settling waters, that run deeper, and
deeper
I close my eyes and drown in my sleep

You breathe me, you leave me
I fade, I die again
This is what I deserve

Here in the dark, this is where I belong
Never afraid, but tired of feeling
Murmurs of a past, I’m listening
I can’t help but hear your whispers

Sjelelaus
Her kor snøen lave ner, kvile mennesket i fred
Ein stille søvn som vare for all evighet
Her kor snøen lande mjukt, dysses barnergråt og frykt
La tankar synka ner i jupet uten slutt

Dynk mi tro i syndeflod, fornekt mi sjel….. i et oppdikta spel…….
Love gull å grønne skogar, hellig liv t evig tid, døyv di frykt for støv ska du bli

Sjelelaus e eg så vie mitt liv t synder å tvil
Sjelelaus e eg så kjenne eg leve, uten å angra, uten å dvela
Sjelelaus e eg så e fri fra lenkår så smis
Sjelelaus står eg imot dei så dele ut frelsa og bot

Der kor tankar blir t liv, dør all meining så di gir
Kor all verdi blir målt i alt det me kan gi
Hvis dei ser tebake på årås løp vil dei forstå
At nøklen dei har blødd og streva for e vår

Dynk mi tro i syndeflod, fornekt mi sjel….. i et oppdikta spel…….
Love gull å grønne skogar, hellig liv t evig tid, døyv di frykt for støv ska du bli

Sjelelaus e eg så vie mitt liv t synder å tvil
Sjelelaus e eg så kjenne eg leve, uten å angra, uten å dvela
Sjelelaus e eg så e fri fra lenkår så smis
Sjelelaus står eg imot dei så dele ut frelsa og bot

Nå kan du sjå ka du har kasta vekk livet på, ein himmel og et helvete
Som ingen noggen gång vil nå

The Wanderer
Darkness impales my soul
The sight, for my blinded eyes
I heard the lament craving my return
Doomed to walk the earth

Craving for darkness in man
I am the fallen, the wanderer
Burning the shadows of time
I am the end

The darkened sky will burn away the sun
Torment for my earthly flesh
Forever, I will wander
Alone into shadows

Withered Garden
Within the cold eclipse
Archaic beauty is captive
Peel from the old memories
And make me love you

In dust and shadows
Of forgotten dreams
I’ll let you believe
You mean more to me
Than the stars in the skies
And all the withered leaves

I’ll be the goddess in your dim light
Binding your heart with lies
Devil in the doorway
Pouring teardrops into our skies

A hero decayed
Jewel to my eyes
Dripping sadness
You are my addiction

A river of tears
To fill my withered winter garden
I cover the snow white roses

A river of tears
In your withered winter garden
I cover the snow white roses
With red tears from my eyes

Flames devoured
And left us in ruin
A pale wasteland
Covered in ashes

My Sin
We would whisper tales of better days
No one but us could hear
Gone with the winter breeze, swept away
Frozen tears with dear for you

Lay me down now leave me here to fade
No one but you can hear
Touch the ghost of an ardent lover
Child of the cold blood heart

How can I reach?
Pull you out from under
Make you see your lifeline
Tied up to mine
Drown me in your sadness
If it makes you stay here longer
Without you I’m nothing
Hear my calls
They’ll draw you closer

I’m down on my knees
You feed of my sin
I loathe what I’ve become
You feed of my sin

I will never let it wither away
Only you could see me through
Trust the night to bring me back again
All my faith has gone with you

Epitaph
I’m floating away
To find my innocence
I’m drifting away
To find my peace

Arrow to coal
Burns through the soul
Wither away
Summer to fall

In my weakness I let you see
through me
You felt my warm skin and
left me cold
Desperately searching in the
dark for you
Breathe new life in me

Take me back and un-dream
this nightmare
Forsake this bitter land and
have me taste you once more
Find me
Howling storm strangles
my call

Tears fall for thee
Embrace the dark in me
Wash me away
I’ll find my peace

Sinking so deep
I watch the mourners weep
My grave cold and bleak
Forevermore

In my….

Take me back…

Water so pure
Coarse through the soul
Wash me ashore
Wash me ashore

I’m floating away
To find my innocence
I’m drifting away
To find my peace
In my…

Take me back…

Requiem aeterna dona eis,
et lux perpetua luceat eis,
Exaudi orationem meam;
ad te omnis caro veniet.
Requiem aeternam dona eis,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

(translation of Latin text)
Eternal rest grant unto them
and let perpetual light shine
upon them
Her my prayer;
to you shall all flesh come.
Eternal rest grant unto them,
and let perpetual light shine
upon them.

The stillness and the cold
Draws me into shadows torn
Wasted tears for me

Still whispers within

The emptiness won’t let go
Wandering towards the
precious unknown
I’m longing for the dark cold silence
To take hold of my soul

This is the end of me
This is the end of me

I dream of escaping this life
The void you filled, I never
gave up
I’m longing for the dark cold silence
To take hold hold of my soul

Lonely wanderer, in shadow’s grasp
Headed for the Darkland I’ll be
Where dreamless nights are forever
I’m waiting for the end

This is the end
This is the end of me
