The Red in the Sky Is Ours Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Red in the Sky Is Ours/The Season to Some (4:41)
Hunger, the word of wolves
Rhythms collapse against closed doors
Hearts frozen in time
Blood stains our sight
The red in the sky is ours

Hunger, soulrot
Thirst for higher rush of pain

Hands raised to theheavens
Oh, sing praise to the Lord of Rot
A kingdom burned by sins
The red in the sky is ours

Hunger, soulrot
Thirst for higher rush of pain

Black, the eyes of God they shine
As our victory coulors our sight
Blessed be thee, Queen of Crimson
The red in the sky is ours...Twilight is ours

Revoulution, the red in the sky is ours
The red in hte sky is ours 'till the end of time
Red
2. Kingdom Gone (4:40)
"God"
"Creator"
Deciever, you are the sinner.
I cast you down from your throne of lies
And accuse you of a thousand sins
Perished in the flames of what you call Hell
I proclaim your kingdom as lost forever

A thousand Colours invade
All different, all dark
A black sun is now rising
Reality unfolds

Kingdom Gone

Absolute Spirit, we revolt against thee
We are the serpent gods, Wall spawned from you
I am the new messiah, and I will babtise you in sin
We wanted a place in your creation but you wouldn't let us in

With one caress I draw the life from your flesh
With one stroke I render your bones to dust
Kingdom Gone

In the light of the black sun
The seas of starvation start to boil
A new dimension is born,
We die, we learn and are born again

Inverted we've lived our lives
From our death to our birth
Now the liers are awakening
We are the children of "God's" curse

With our caressyou greet the slaves of your creation
With one stroke you punish us for your sins
Kingdom Gone

The black gate is closed

Inverted we've lived our lives
From our death to our birth
Now the liers are awakening
We are the children of "God's" curse

I proclaim your kingdom as lost forever

A thousands different colours invade
All different, All dark
A black sun is now rising
Reality unfolds

Kingdom Gone
3. Through Gardens of Grief (4:03)
Precious Flame of life, so Elusive
A spark being trampled to ashes
And spread by the winds of time

This garden is a silent one
Nothing moves but thoughts
The thoughts of those in silent memory
This they know, this they understand
There is darkness everywhere, outside

Morningstar forever set in Zenith
Uriel ruler of worlds
Saraquel set over spirits

the repulsive truth of this dark domain
The answer echos throughout infinity
There are so many of us here
And we are all so lonely
We are among millions and still alone
We are in hell, and yet so cold
Gardens of Grief

There's no god to punish us, and yet we suffer
Throughout so many lifetimes in this garden I have dwelt
4. Within (6:54)
Feel the vibrating words of power
Magick the portral, language the key
As my journey within begins

Once again the gates stand open before me
Time has come for me to climb the tree of life
And sail the seas i know so well

I search the winding mases of my mind
And travel through thoughts left behind
As the waves they carry my ship into the air
A way out, but not back, I must find

I can't go on living in this dead world
crawling through this life I hate
I won't be thrown to the wolves again
I escape through magick as darkness it falls

But now the danger lurks within
Through my mind and beyond
My task is insane
And i don't know how my body will respond
But my ship is a strong on
It has carried me through storms worse than this

I can't go on living in this dead world
Crawling through the life I hate

I hear music and it guides me
On my quest to infinity
A harbor appears within the mist
It's lighthouse, a sunrise
For a soul starved of light

I try to focus my mind on it
But something is blocking the way
But one day this city I'll reach

I now return to balance again
As mind and body unites
And I close the temples of my mind
Lutis Nitra

Find powers within

Upon the seas of starvation
5. Windows (3:53)
Eternal, now you live a dead lie
Plague years, a walk down the trail of misery

Put fire to your soul
Set it ablaze

A lunatic music, the end of flock kingdom
Sheep, you thirst for our insanity

Windows, sharp, cold
Wrap your psyche in blankets of pain
No more light of day
We're the windows to your insanity

Screaming, roaring, we'll alter your reality
Dancing razors cut your sanity

Windows, sharp, cold
Wrap your psyche in blankets of pain
Fuck you, light of worlds
We're the windows to your insanity

Reflections in the shattered glass
Singing songs of blasphemey for your soul
6. Claws of Laughter Dead (4:03)
Ride the wind
My aggressions mirrored themselves in her eyes
As the blade was ripping up her insides

Her eyes
Stabbing and stabbing
My love fell dead to the floor
Together with sheds of my sanity
Dead in the abscence of agony

She's still here with me
As Hell turns to ice

Her dead eyes staring deep into my soul
Into the carved out hole
Sweeping forth, The wind without no name

my mind is raped by insanity

Now her blood flows in my veins
Her heart beats in my chest
Her voice screaqms within my mind
The wind without no name

Ride the wind

Now time itself touches my soul
It's ice cold breeath in my ear
Oh, "God" I'm sorry, I lost control
I slayed love disguised as fear

The fire still burns within my soul
No wind to put it out

Now time itself touches my soul
It's ice cold breeath in my ear
Oh, "God" I'm sorry, I lost control
I slayed love disguised as fear
7. Neverwhere (5:41)
Dark horizon, darkest sky
No light is present
Freezing winds of lands unamiable
Haunts the wastes of Nerewhere

Life doesn't belong here

Limitless, unmeasurable - time is not
As the end so is the beginning
Always was, always will be
This is where the journey ends
This is what no one returned to tell

Neverwhere

Life doesn't belong here

Dark thoughs, darkest mind
no light is prestent
I now put aside my crown of thorns
Time has come to join externity
And rest my eyes on a darker shade of colour

Eager to be erased
Innumerable stare behind frozen eyes
Wanderers strayed from eternity's path
longed for to come, to rest at last

Limitless, unmeasurable - time is not
As the end so is the beginning
Always was, always will be
This is where the journey ends
This is what no one returned to tell

Dimensions warped in times of motionless storm
Now frozen worlds collide
As the womb of cold opens wide
Childhood has passed
Now birth will come of ages dreamed of by none
Now awaited, the circle to close
We wait for the call, Lazaraus come out

Now awaited, the circle to close
We wait for the call - Lazaraus come out
We wait in the shadows of Neverwhere
8. The Scar (2:01)
Empty streets fill my mind
Autumn has come to numb me blind

The end it reaches out for me
My soul still calling to be free

I want the energy to breathe, to clear thier poisoned minds
The energy i am, to end thier pointless lives
9. Night Comes, Blood-Black (5:16)
Clouds, black of deep nights
Dim my sight, block my eyes
From the truth, from the flesh

Black in torment steeped
A force worse than Hell unleashed
Let us pray for the final twilight

Crawling up from the swamps of corrupted flesh
slowly stinking
suffocate me

The night screams out the darkness
The pain of dying worlds

Crush

Sunlight seems a blood smear
Niight comes, blood-black
Dawn breaks open like a wound that bleeds afresh
Religion rots your mind, "God" will free you of your soul

Clouds, black of deep nights
Dim my sight, block my eyes
From the truth, from my own flesh

My thoughts come crushing against the walls of the hard
blank
Steel walls of your faith
Don't question the light, black of a thousand lies
It's everything

Black, in torment steeped
A force worse than Hell unleashed
Let us pray for the final twilight

Sunlight seems a blood smear
Niight comes, blood-black
Dawn breaks open like a wound that bleeds afresh
Religion rots your mind, "God" will free you of your soul
10. City of Screaming Statues (4:38)
City of screaming statues
Your soul will grow to understand and respect this place
It will be with you in your heart, on your journey

The gates of the city lies before you
The temples of truth whispering their waves
Chase your visions, slay your fears
What moves the truth is the sound of your thoughts

Scream

The struggle of the soul
Depends on the strenght of your will
Among the twisted shapes of your madness
You will find your light and your genius
In this city where the statues they scream
For their truth is to be real

The dreams and the visions
The reality and the light
Within the soul of the city
may be whatever you wish it to be
In the city where the statues they scream
For their truth is to be real

Stand up and turn your back on reality
Lie down and let your dreams attack
The silence of the soul that is true
Is the silence that you lack
Fell the strengeth pulsating through you
As the gates, they close behind you

The answers lie within the city of light
Within the light
In the sunrise of your soul, time is the key
The music of the truth, now behold

Rise and crush them

The gates of the city lies before you
The temples of truth whispering their waves
Chase your visions, slay your fears
What moves the truth is the sound of your thoughts

The statues they scream
For their truth is to be real
Within the walls of the city
Where death ain't the end

The music of the truth, the light of the end
