Caged in Memories Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Last Awakening (3:37)
Remember this time when our skies were drained obscure
The haze of departed fate
I will raise my head and gaze towards
Where the dawn of pure desires
Marks the end of yesterday
Last breath of life, the cycle ends

Ad aeternitatem
Sine exitus
Aestus
Onustus
Tempestas et Ignis
Ex spiritu ad terram
2. Confessions (7:29)
Time rings in my fear and begs me near
Her sharp silhouette appears
Sleepless harbingers across the stairwell
They bring nothingness back to where I dwell

Defiant ink smears tense
Silence at dusk, while I wade in consequence
Waves wash over, all ash and smoke
Since the day scorn brought us afloat…soaked in sin

Shimmers break in through this rusted cage
Words adorned with bursting sage
Lips careening madly towards a torn page
Yearning escape from my dreamscapes
These memories, these bloodshot ripples in symmetry

I cannot find stillness in this ache
Faded, distant you awake
Our creation, delving down amongst the dust

Walls wail hollow, your brazen deceit
A breach of trust, upon the jagged edge of treason

Ties that bind us fateful
Arms exposed left no choice
Protection, salvation
A soul's reason destroyed

(x2) Colliding fates
Passed on by ancestry
Soiled hands
Command mastery
Revolution, exiled to grieve
Above our willful abyss

Ties that bind us fateful
Arms exposed left no choice
Protection, salvation
A soul's reason destroyed

(x2) Colliding fates
Passed on by ancestry
Soiled hands
Command mastery
Revolution, exiled to grieve
Above our willful abyss
3. Art of Deception (7:14)
Standing encircled by the light
I’m a slave confined to vultures’ might
These tremblings won’t subside
Day by day I’m falling prey
Day by day I’m falling prey
And I know their howling yearning is my guide
To the art of deception

Your silence manifests
Lost is my last line of defense
Have hidden blades stained innocence?

The bell tolls once more
Time suspends the end of wars
Fallen forlorn
Onto mercy's thorns

These nightmares seep into my reality
Away from hallowed ground
Your hands draw out

What you left behind
Faith collapsed unbound
The touch of raven skin
Life beyond all sin
What you left behind
Faith collapsed unbound
When I shut these eyes
Your words repeat within, my hope remised

Flickers of a flame speak your reign
While you beckon
Questions craving closure
Haunt me every day
Torn hearts on parade
Lingering in vain
Am I to blame, the crux of pain
For your glance behind my mask?

(x2) Flesh and body cloaked
Reflecting in visions deep inside
Brotherly love evoked
In shards of glass, chimeras crystalize

Symphonic plagues crescendo
As it courts my dawn in reckoning

Lone locks of hair
And cinders raging fair
Across your sanctuary
Bereft in tears

(x2) Flesh and body cloaked
Reflecting in visions deep inside
Brotherly love evoked
In shards of glass, chimeras crystalize
4. Scarlet Angel (6:17)
My precious angel, kiss this tide away
Mend mine deserted eyes
Fallen one, find your solace inside
Don’t hide behind my lost pride

Embrace me
Grip me tightly
Whisper your unsung heart
The truth belies
Your grace, it weighs me down
Beauty immersed in misery snowbound

And I conjure the skies
As darkness above descends
Cause I sense your calls
Deliverance
Reveal yourself
Finally free

Scarlet angel
Here I’ll wake and wait
By rapture’s gates
My scarlet angel
Please forgive all I am
And my past seize

Clarity’s blaze rips the line
Suspended you rise divine
While I scream for a last goodbye
A last goodbye

My precious angel, kiss this tide away
Mend mine deserted eyes

And I conjure the skies
As darkness above descends
Cause I sense your calls
Deliverance
Carries thru my veins
Destiny set aflame

Scarlet angel
Here I’ll wake and wait
By rapture’s gates
My scarlet angel
Please forgive all I am
Scarlet angel
Here I’ll wake and wait
By rapture’s gates
My scarlet angel
Please forgive all I am
And my past seize
5. Behind the Gates of a New-come (4:11)
instrumental
6. Cellophane Eyes (7:44)
You delivered her to her barren prayer
Primal malice perpetual
Undyingly righteous in your ways
Perdition compelled, ripe to raise

Fumes fan the famed
Nightfall draws
Halos shake, heavy pale with point-blank rain
For I shall doze blind
Every man who begs your bane
And sign the horizon in your name

Your enterprise triggered callus
With lips to the wind you spoke
Of our covenant stray in smoke
By your command we are artless

Cellophane eyes
Desire rests by my side, a godless veiled bride
Serrated mistakes snake
Beneath the cracks watching me nigh
Setting traps within
Within each lie

Where is your instinct of survival?
Come clean or pay the cost of denial

Towering claws caress
Forced by your serpent’s arrest
Lust lashes full of agony
My sworn oath harbors your unending plea
Towering claws caress
Forced by your serpent’s arrest
Remorse absent counterfeiting
Centuries cave to my siren's sting

My canvas red with hate assured to a soundtrack obscure
Your lament sealed by subversion, forever empty of words
7. Caged in Memories (17:21)
[Pt. I: Desperation]
Reflections, obsessions
Their echoes leave me blinded
The inception of deception
I will release my demons
Affection, the blackened curse upon my blood
With violent sympathy
She summons a name I know so well

Inside my soul a silent mourning
Every hour ceasing forevermore
Their chimes challenge my purpose
What is my path?
An empty space, cipher to experience
Countless wicked dues to repay
A murderer ‘till my last day
It’s time to surrender

While her strings clench from all directions
A seed of doubt colors my core
Shivers too visions to ignore
Damage done
A bloodline betrayal of faith and frail
Her sweet tongue wraps around my neck
A wolfsbane offering to bated lips
My realm forsaken

These days of steel and concrete
Will cull the past into bloom
These days I seek the obsolete
To succumb to time's hollow tomb

[Pt. II: Contrition]
The last rays of stars jar this solemn skyline
Curtains fall crimson, affixed with crimes
Pale twilight unravels my shame
Enlightening the pages of my life

My sworn secrets eclipsed
My house of cards overthrown
My fate to be trussed from future sins
In the aftermath beyond my tomorrow

And when you stretched out for my hand
Deaf ears to deathly ground, a lamb to the slaughter
For what you reaped, for all you have sowed
With no remorse, duty to your own

On the eve of the end
I repent in memories of your descent
Over waters of contrition
Let it be known I am hellion

Frozen inside my wilted world
I see no light
A heart rests assured it's written
Truce finds its way to yesterday

How could you not recognize?
This game of damnation
The shallow legacy we were born into
Could only rip apart our history?

On the eve of the end, I repent
In memories of your descent
Over waters of contrition
Let it be known I am hellion

Frozen inside my wilted world
I feel no light
A soul rests beside me in time
And filters thru the carrion

All dreams held dear
All fatherly fear
All wounds exposed
Victims of your rule imposed

[Pt. III: Acceptance]
And so I must commit
Nothing remains
For I have strived to lead
With justice above life
Eyeing the grace of impure perfection
And the chance to seek complete absolution

I face forever
Grieving no guilt
Never to return
I will shed this heavy
Crown of thorns
And give in to the celestial

Time has come
Take me where
I belong, my angel
