Prisoner of Sunlight Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Deserter (7:09)
Risen from the sand
Or am I fallen from the sky?
Drifting without aim,
 anchored no more
Blinded by sun, withered by heat
Desiccation all consuming
Fathomless horizon
Shrouding a distant shore

Desert the path
Unearthed by ruin
Abandon fate
Obscure my burden

Nightfall's cool embrace
Tempering my disposition
Gathering winds are
Forging my path from beyond
Wasting away, wearing me down
This hesternal skin no longer
Damning my reflection
Dead on the ocean floor

Desert the path
Unearthed by ruin
Abandon fate
Obscure my burden

Caught in between, prisoner of sunlight
Sand at my feet leaves me broken inside
I can't dream, I can't feel,
I can't hold this monolithic weight
 (upon me now)
Deserting every ounce of being, entombed by the ever-rising tide

Prisoner of sunlight
2. Thrones (7:34)
Awash,
Immersed
In a ghostly serpent
A lucid
weaver of
dreams undreamt

Before these titans
Pyramids
Cloaked in granite
Before
This vestige
Reality has fallen

Floating over a stone field
A pale beacon beckons me towards two crystal thrones
Cerulean trails rising
Dying embers, distant flame
Between the monoliths
Amaranthine

You are cold
You are broken
3. Refractions (2:37)
instrumental
4. Threshold (6:08)
Beyond this realm exists a space
Where ruin dwells within, without

Enter and be judged
How else will you know yourself?
Enter and be judged
Accept the sentence to be dealt
Enter and be judged

Reach out, feel the cold
Motionless, I gaze ahead


Enter and be judged
How else will you know yourself?
Enter and become
All that was concealed in doubt
Enter and be judged

Push back the curtain
Shadows are surfacing
Black mirror opening to a
Cavernous fissure, drowning forever

Drowning forever
Drowning forever
Forever
5. Ossify (4:36)
instrumental
6. Fractures (10:05)
Supposed fate
Is the shore my solace?
Where will I lie?

Standing in the darkness
I can't find my way out
I’ve never felt
More alive

Detached and nursed
On the comforts of a shattered illusion
No truth other than
The suffocating weight of

Monuments to history
Opaque in their triumphs
Resilient indifference
Holds their heads to the sky

Sever your mind
From all physical borders
Fracture the cycle
Abyss of empty stares

Bathed in sorrow
An earthen blanket covers me
This wretched blindness
In time shall fade

As though eternal
Yet lying dormant in this cave
In spite of darkness
This is no grave

Sever your mind
From all physical borders
Fracture the cycle
Abyss of empty stares


Into the fractures we shall fall
Never to return
7. Reflections (1:49)
instrumental
8. Seaworthy (7:46)
instrumental
