False God 05:39
Awaken, dreamer, Lost in your mind's alternate reality Breathe in, breathe out, Hush, your little prayer is in vain No one can hear you now Your god is dead A haven for the weak and deranged Faith and reprieve interwined Your fear of death in disguise What if I choose not to conform? What will your false god do? I will not follow you Can't infect my mind with your lies "Of good and evil much they argued then, Of happiness and final misery, Passion and apathy, and glory and shame, Vain wisdom all and false philosophy" In fake devotion you bow Yet before me you stand proud Divide and conquer to prevail Forever I'll defy you Your god is dead A haven for the weak and deranged Your god is dead Your poison can't affect me Sleep now, believer Fear not, I'll be right beside you Take my hand Embrace your redeemer Torture him, then crucify him for your sins to be absolved Your god is dead A haven for the weak and deranged Faith and reprieve interwined Your fear of death in disguise What if I choose not to conform? What will your false god do? I will not follow you Can't infect my mind with your lies

Like bloodthirsty ravens Closing in on their prey They came that fateful night for her With luring questions and sharpened forked tongues They sought to implicate her Weighing every word against her She pleaded innocent, But her fate had been sealed long before they knocked on her door Lying preachers Vermin, leeches Caging women, Burning witches Deny them Ignore them But in the end you will confess How much pain can you take? Your flesh is weak In my mind it's so clear I'll never get out of here For I won't confess to a crime That my heart and soul deny And here comes the pain My friend in isolation My body may be frail But my mind's beyond your reach I cannot, I will not prove that I'm innocent To bigoted, blinded fools In this parody of a trial There is no escape from your web of lies False witnesses all, They point their hands at me Spitting vile accustions Save me your theatricals So gather around my pyre to warm your cold hearts And feast on my life like parasites

Black Legend 04:16
Hapless creature, lost in sin Who would dare defy a priest? Hear, the crowd affirms your guilt To question true belief is heresy Lower your head now Come closer Confesss your crimes and all your vices There's no way to escape The wrath of our mighty church Hapless creature, lost in sin Who would dare defy a priest? Hear, the crowd affirms your guilt To question true belief is heresy Mother, wife, or daughter Regardless, you'll be burnt or slaughtered A man of faith knows how to silence and preach The pain will set you free Into the pyre of all your sins you'll be condoned Broken your body and soul Behold the might of our dogma Thou art vile and infernal Thus speaketh our Lord Thou art conceived by blasphemy Wicked seductress, evil breed The snake's pawn, Satan's harlot A lying, foul wretch Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live Burn the witch

I am but a speck of dust Caught in the winds of time Just one breath away from dying My time has come I'm ready to take flight How I long to close my eyes This is the end I have to die There is no escape Now as never before I feel that I'm alive My heart is filled with love Yet I have to die I embrace my fate I'm leaving you Please forgive me But I have to let go Only you can breathe life into me I need to hold you I need to feel you lying next to me Your absence pains me, like flying daggers that carve your name on my skin There’s nothing but your voice that relentlessly rings in my ears Let me sleep in your embrace Caress me as we unite in my deepest dreams Forever as one I will not let you have your show at my expense What if I just took my own life? Here I am Like a criminal chained and confined Living on borrowed time Here there’s only me and my shadow I am alone Looking at nothing, expecting nothing The world is spinning around me The pyre denied me, As the rain caressed me A sign of guilt to eyes that cannot see But I won't let you have your show I'll tie my noose before the break of dawn I am safe now Farewell my beloved one Kiss me, my angel of death I am ready Take me now

Flawless facade Haunting, averted eyes As inconspicuous as a dead man A dreaded creature washed up by the tide A walking nightmare fearlessly roaming this land One by one You will fall Face the horrors that you wrought I will relieve you, priest Condone you of your sins Your death can't bring her back But you will feel her pain Say her name! A shallow, lifeless being My existence has no meaning My destruction is your doing My corruption your undoing Everything I ever loved is dead or dying I'm just a heavy drop out of the cloud But soon my lightning will scorch out your eyes So I extend my hand to the phantom of my fear I have nothing to lose There's nothing for me here Baptized and defiled In your putrid sea of loathing Welcome to my ocean I am so glad to take you in What should I choose? The pyre or the noose? Your holiness, what would you have me do? Why don't we grace you with the opportunity to save yourself in her stead? My poison is my balsam How does it feel to lose it all? To be choked by invisible hands? My retribution Solemnly I walked down the aisle My dead bride in my embrace Everything I ever loved is dead Damn you Curse you Straight to hell I cast you A life for a life My blood sacrifice

Carpe Noctum 07:24
Be it magic or science, Be it satan or be it god, I will bring you back to me At the cost of my own soul Hereby I seal my damnation Bearing this crown of darkness My desolation Carpe Noctum Endless days and nights I've stood by your side I've struggled, But I failed to find you in death I feel you're one breath away Why do you elude me when I call your name? Betrayed by sunlight, embracing the dark All broken mirrors, what have I become? Will I see you in astral light? Or will you fade into a figure from my past? Carpe Noctum Endless days and nights I've stood by your side I've struggled, But I failed to find you in death I feel you're one breath away Why do you elude me when I call your name? I'm losing you I'm losing my mind On the altar of descent I have sacrificed myself Your last candle's burning low My last chance to reach your soul I'm losing you I'm losing my mind I'm losing you I'm losing you I call to you Just follow my voice Follow me Come to me

Is it true, or am I dreaming? Are you truly returned to me? Would you look upon me now? Open your eyes, what do you see? Who is this? How dare you call me back Disturbing my peaceful sleep? I shall hurt you I shall crush you You don't know what you have done Pray, forgive me Don't you see me? How have you forsaken me? I have crossed dead seas and oceans All to bring you back to me I was flying ever higher With my hand I touched the sky I would be one with the stars Yet you forced me down I see your face Creeping shadows weep your name Shattered images are in my head All my memories are clouded and supressed It is painful to cling to this world now I should not be here A deceased soul here amongst the living ...Release me...

Thyella 04:55
I feel I'm lost in a lucid dream Hanging on a string My will is weak Eram quod es, eris quod sum You will lie You will kill Murder him in his sleep You will be one of us There is nowhere you can hide This portal now has opened Can you hear them? Their grip on me is strong I am trapped between two worlds Vengeful spirits cling to me like leeches Sucking my life away Please, release me from this nightmare I'm so frail I can't hold on I have damned us both There is no hope for us There never was Yet the faint sound of your heartbeat Is enough to ease my soul My every breath is agony My love, you were deceived Here there's only death for me Have I conquered death? All I know is that in life I have failed Now it's time to face reality Reality "A little poison now and then That maketh pleasant dreams And much poison at last for a pleasant death"
