Fade from stasis This nightmare will never end The view from here, so sweet Hellfire at my feet Nothing stands in my fucking way This fury will be mine alone Unconquered No light shall ever shine on us I cry to cease to breathe To feel, to speak To see, to be I mock your final grimace Idols of existence With eyes rolled back A voice I've once cherished Bound yet merciless Within the grasp of reason
Please try to understand My love was spent again Descending the darkest skies This repose found you Spiraling down to a hell like home This life cold as winter In fields of sorrow This life cold as winter A brother's requiem In spite of unpersuaded worlds Stabbing wholly at our feat I'm alone This sight induced my pain To know you're free You stood on a promised world With beautiful scars Three weeks beyond contempt Everything became nothing The fear, so familiar The noose, a boundless image Acceptance, sickness, and beauty Deeming to be the rotting tree As the leaves fell, You left me.. As the rain pours I hear your voice This is for you
Cast my soul in disarray Kiss my lips one dying time Ring of red I've felt the flame Caress my heart As my skin goes untouched I turned myself inside out As forever fades away In a spiral from a heaven That I refused to face I turned myself inside out As forever fades away In a spiral into a hell That in return took my place I haven't lost faith in love, But it's lost the effort With the thought of us I'm sitting still In slowest motions of you Perfection unguided by its will I must break this silence Words will come in due time Your sorrow saved me from my final descent Braids of death Intertwined by my cold fingers I let go
Every glance became a stare Your image stays You made the limits clear As this cross decays in your hands Strangled by fear of losing my faith My memories tear me in two One half lost in time The other died in you Father forgive me How bitter the truth Razor's calling Suicide in you My memories tear me in two One half lost in time The other died in you This slit of creation I have learned to fail Your atonement won't save you from extinction
Lines of nerves Embedded like clockwork I bled for you Yearning to heal My efforts like scars at my side Once loved by the thorns where my wrists hide Bleeding time away from you To confide in truth Heaven fades incomplete Innocence / Obsolete This lust won't purify Only blacken what's inside My pulse races with nothingness Won't need what you gave me Don't need you to save me Anymore.. Obsolete Single file to failure Buried once again I won't suffer in defeat Innocence / Obsolete This is where this life ends Salvation / Punishment
