In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. I (0:39)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellylon]

[Instrumental]
2. The World Beyond (6:16)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

Dwells no man into this infinity
For as the last glow of the sun sets
I feel an affinity towards the unity
Between mankind and his divinity

And the y shall live out there lives
Like an atom in infinity
Void of their true destiny

Though all of this holds a globe of significance to the
Coarse corruption
The two thousand years of false assumption

So I gaze to the stars and seek the strange wisdom
Of the worlds beyond
Empowered by the pulse of the cosmos
To leave this world behind
There is an exit

I see nothing as the last glow of the sun sets
I walk this earth like sand in the wind, drifting on and on into the years

And they have lived out there lives like atoms in infinity

Driven to madness the moon speaks to no one
Spheres of darkness perpetual through the aeons and beyond in the moonlight upon the shoulders of ignorance
They ask us a question
One thousand words
Read the writing on the walls
3. Acolytes (5:00)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

The kingdom of heaven is foundering
A foulness to the race of man
Where they worship in the lands of the north
Where elder gods still lie in slumber

In the dim light behold the vengeance
Of the infinite abyss

Their seasons
Their blood
There is nothing but reservoirs of darkness
Their seasons
Their blood
There is nothing

Rise
Stricken with fear and repent
Rise
Stricken with fear
The darkest clouds form an alliance
They're pounding away at the dawn
(rise)
Where the cold waters tread fear

The kingdom of heaven is foundering
A foulness to the race of man
The blackest of tides is rising
Storming across the heavens

In the dim light behold the vengeance
Of the infinite abyss

Divine diseases
Ailments of infinity
Dwells no part of empyrean virtue
I bid you haste

Their seasons
Their blood
There is nothing but reservoirs of darkness
Their seasons
Their blood
There is nothing

Rise
Stricken with fear and repent
Rise
Stricken with fear
The darkest clouds form an alliance
They're pounding away at the dawn
(rise)
Where the cold waters tread fear
4. A Thousand Suns (5:09)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

Those treasured wisdoms were forgotten over time
Holds a message stolen from the stars where we live
In the shadows
Here in the womb of a thousand suns

The treasured wisdoms forgotten over time
Along the shore of the cosmos stolen from her embrace
And so we stay here waiting for the call
Waiting for the call

The current situation demands contemplation
War wages
The battle still rages on and on and on

This is what we were
This is what we have become
A reflection of purity cannot tell a lie
And as the sun fades on the surface of the earth
We are Hell-bound

Along the shores tonight
Scatter the ashes of a fallen empire
The time is nigh

Like blue mantles under the night sky
This night will last forever

They fell prey to the corruption, now they prey to the corrupted

This is what we were
This is what we have become
A reflection of purity cannot tell a lie
And as the sun fades on the surface of the earth
We are hellbound
5. Into the Ashes (4:39)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

You call from the shadows
And curse my blood in the wind
You speak in riddles
The substance which is chipping away
At the garden so balefully

I will hunt you
And even your god can't save you
When the wind blows
A mourning morning whispers serenity
There's none to be had

I will curse the very soil you walk
Until you drown in your own shame
And feel the sweet kiss of death across your cold skin
Under the pale horned moon

Their blood is stricken and cursed to the outer hills

We conquer
All in the sign of evil
Into the cold embrace
As the wind blows through the willows
And the signature of man
Has blinded the stars and the infinities beyond

Reclaim the alter
Rewrite the books

I will hunt you
And even your god can't save you
When the wind blows
A mourning morning whispers serenity
There's none to be had
6. Smoke and Mirrors (4:52)
[Music: Sorceron, Lyrics: Sorceron]

In a dark corner of the room she sits in silence
Behind the mask of beauty lies the truth
Taken away

The land has suffered under your heedless reign
There is no end

The land has suffered under your heedless reign
Where is the end?

Your love is like a sea without a shore

You wear the crown of shadows well my friend but the
Truth of the matter is,
Your stranger then a stranger in a strange land

Your love is like a sea without a shore
Your love is like a curse holding me under its terrible spell
I should not be there

You wear the crown of shadows well my friend but the
Truth of the matter is,
Your stranger then a stranger in a strange land
I tried to reason
I tried to comprehend
This is treason
7. A Semblance of Life (2:06)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon]

[Instrumental]
8. Empyrean: Into the Cold Wastes (6:15)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

Oh in the night skies
Turns a darkness that will enlighten
All of mankind as we know
And it will glow with so bright a light showing us
A clear path once invisible

But in the stage of decay...
Enshrine the forgotten secrets of the earth
Buried by angels in starlit chambers
This is the sound; listen for the sound of the trumpets
Through the eyes of creation
I see the final stages of decay
Beneath the burning palaces of heaven
And into the pits of sands
I watched the kingdom come crumbling down

Wrought their own destruction
Subterranean origin
Cataclysm casting the world into the dark
The winds of wrath are howling into the cold wastes
9. Floods (5:48)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

A fortress of evil surrounded by darkness
I move through the shadows
I like the feeling of having you with me
The power of the ancient course through my veins as we
Drink from the everlasting fountains
We are gods in this state

I am your keeper
This is shelter
This is everything you've ever wanted
Ever needed
I am your keeper
In the eye of the winter
This is everything you've ever wanted
Ever needed
This is your sanctuary

Oh I cast my hand out and bring forth
The floods unto the lands
And cast away all amongst the living from the earth
May your spirits cry for all of an eternity
Though I'll hear them nay
There's but one refuge once the storm is summoned
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

I am your keeper
This is shelter
This is everything you've ever wanted
Ever needed
I am your keeper
In the eye of the winter
This is everything you've ever wanted
Ever needed
This is your sanctuary

Awaken the spirits
Returning your memories
Rescuing forever
Flood my soul with calamities
But my heart is beating me into reality
But now I'm leaving
I'll walk away from this
As the fire burns because these curses have no cure

I call out to the below
With hell in my eyes there's no turning back
I'll stay here forever
Your precious flesh is my only token of your memory
10. The Departure (5:56)
[Music: Sorceron and Ellyllon, Lyrics: Sorceron]

I will ride again
Beyond the moon wandering
In the land of the dead I am a king

Of these negative forces
Reclaim the earth and burn down the heavens
A god who's kingdom lays within
But the cruel frosts and wintry winds
Make it difficult for me to protect you from the cold
These icy shores are never

Ending this perennial cycle
And if I'm not back by dawn please call my name

Run into the night
Your snow covered heart is dripping away but mine is
Shattering in the coldest of winds
