Codex Barathri Lyrics

Submitted by level 록스타
1. Liber Angelis (6:01)
Starlit hidden eyes by blood and hair
Her head encircled by a dark aureole
Wildflowers entwined in her flesh
A raven's paramour brought to disgrace
Beauty of darkness
Mirrored in the lake
Innocence awaits
On your redeemers throne
In the midst of her raptures
All the ills that flesh is heir to
Are withholding our dreams
And wake her dormant heart
Nocturnal beauty
Tempered in all its supremacy
Nighttime water eyes yeal
For an immortal kiss
Just to be for once caressed
By demon wings
We are the ruins of a dream
The misery we have become
A marbleise icon made ethereal
Romance rusts in a sea of tranquillity
The night is swathed by her call
Our memories are enmeshed in her toil
An everlasting Odyssey forsaken
An ecstatic blood thirst gratified
Souls are estranging to a haven
A legacy embodied invisible
In the endeavourment of the night
Empowered in infancy so egregious
2. Beyond The Haunting (4:03)
Fear the dreams, desires
The terror
Know what darkness we nourish
The wickedness
Born out of long lost legends
We are collectors of the dead
This slowly dawning horror beckons us once again
We walk and live in shadows forever and much longer
The mortal immortals...the restless ones
The dark of our existence lies deep within
Our bodies are stirred by an ethereal breeze
And in these buried lands...
We are doomed...
Beyond the haunting
Lies a dying light
For those who walk
On the path of death
In a tortured grasp of tormented wraiths
Dreadful dreams claim our failures
Oblivion is groaning in pain
At its long decline feel the stirring of our souls
Our bodies wracked with imagined pain
Shredding flesh off the bone
Until we find the phantasm core...
The scarred entity drifted into sleep
To face our mercenary nightmares.
Our moment, our triumph
A sinister outcome was shattered into pieces.
Drenched in a moment of unguarded pain
We are the ones who creep and crawl...beyond the haunting
The mortal immortals...the restless ones...
And when the clock of time strikes the quarters
The entity drowns in a sea of clouds
Beyond the haunting lies a dying light
For those who walk on the path of death
3. Echoes (5:31)
The flesh is dead
The soul forlorn
The final breath
From body torn
But still I hear
As life, in dreams
The restless soul's
Eternal screams
And now I cannot stand fighting
But still they come, haunting and plaguing
Save me...from this...hell...but take...heed...cause
The stench of rot
In their wake
To save me
Share my plague
The hungry dead
They wail and weep
All I crave
Is to sleep
4. Godsman (5:53)
Perpetual twilight, salacious Nemesis,
A star born in darkness, a jewel drowned in sunset,
A waterfall of echoing voices
Awake our maenad sleep
The wail of battle, the language of all ancestors
Forged in a burning skeleton embrace
Thrives on the fumes of evaporated life-essences
And will soon flow from the past to the future
We shall not let you see the tears we bleed
The pernicious blood we drink
The dark face of the night we need
The cruel vanity in which we sleep
For when the transcendental chanting began
The runes on our swords spoke in tongues
A throbbing rhythm crawled through our veins
Our minds filled with fire, our thoughts bathed in blood
We are the ones who were not be given life
Rough signs of a holy avenger in us
The deep night's gift, a celestial fury
Possessed by an unearthly force
A God's breath is now what we breathe.
We are the beyonders
You shall see the spirit we freed
The sacred life we live
The dark face of the night you need
The cruel vanity from which you feed
We are the beyonders
On a warriors path
We are the beyonders
5. Deciphering Darkness (3:56)
I should have known they came in disguise;
I had no idea of the horrors in stored for me in them...
Why do things happen as they appear in dreams?
And when I dream, I dream of memories....
Dreams or memories of reality....
I cannot tell what are my own...
And the dreams always return,
and all the terror and the evil that came with these memories were born
within my dreams...
What was left of my sanity told me not to indulge myself to them....
but as I was lured into them that voice was nothing more than a whisper...
And now I am losing everything that is left of my humanity...
6. Elemental Dance (3:31)
We are the end of summer
We are the dying light
We are the god's creation
From elemental might
For we who bleed under the cursed skies
On our journey to the end of time
The soil we plunder, the decay that is man's
The endless cycle, elemental dance
We are the waves of fury
That sweep on writhing tides
We are the newborn children
Stained not with blood of Christ
To ancient decorum humanity slaves
Mankinds witness the end of their race
Winds claim their season and seas their domain
Reason's voice muted, ignited the flame
Sam Hein...possess me with your power
Sam Hein...enlighten me with trance
Sam Hein...devour me in your fury
Sam Hein.........the elemental dance
7. Liber Daemonis (4:59)
Glinting around the wings,
A vitreous gleam of the eyes
Entangles the fleshly garment
In the midnight burlesque
Thickening to visible mist
Earthbound spirits are shown
With elongated limbs ending in vicious claws
For they lie there in the darkness
The chosen tempters of mortal minds
Guiding chariots to a new pandemonium
Are adorned with powers of the night hag
A paragon of vices, lycanthropic skulkers,
Effeminate wraiths, children of celestials
Sorrow sings a passage from the curse of the thorn
Into the nightfall of the elder storm
Within the prophecy where time stands still
It's dead melancholy when a wolf howls alone
Star child demons gaze upon the stars
Orbital bonfires enlighten the night
In a time of no shadows
A swift exodus scours the earth
Laying waste on our proud lands
Our ghost within is lost
An abomination made fierce
A vigil embedded in evil
8. Through The Scarlet Forever (6:21)
The earth lies ever silent
Under star sent life that saves
This soil you feed's much deeper
Than the shallow of your graves
These throws of bleak existence
Like sting of poisonous thorn
That slay all without scruple
All that is earthly born
You'll burn in your world
I'll rot in mine
Pray for salvation
As prophesised
Through the scarlet forever
In this savage realm
Where Gaia clipped the angels' wings
And your false idol fell
You'll burn in your world
I'll rot in mine
Pray for salvation
Before you die
Through the scarlet forever
Always Astarte signs
Of tormented bodies, tortured souls
And your false burnt offerings
The children of earth now renounce thee
Freed from oppression they knew
Like darkness at nightfall unhindered
Instinct a right of the few
9. Submissive To The All (4:42)
And thus the world begins with another tale
The all is creating and dominating
In the intangible vastness of space
Under the reign of Father Time
Wind - Raged storms
Fire - Scorched life
Redeem the martyr into existence
Earth - Holy ground
Water - source of all
Order and chaos come by
O Mater Matrum, minimus sum
Mother Nature under your power
O Pater Patrum, minimus sum
Father time in your era
In all of this man is just a sigh
From dawn of men we try to survive
Four forces of nature to dominate
With dispassionate beliefs we crucify
Feel the falling of her dying tears
Hear her calling on the winter night's breeze
Fear the crawling of her ghosts within
Crave for her, deliverer of life
