Plateau Σ: the Harrowing Lyrics

(5)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Beckoning (5:33)
2. Into Distance and Asphixia (5:41)
Sweeter than love and ecstasy
The penance I pay for empty flesh
Gasping and clawing at the moon
Carving abysses in me
Carving singular moments in forever

Suspended and frozen screams of agony to monument the reconciliation of desperation and consciousness
My compass spins around and around
Mocking my desperation for consciousness
On this beach of flesh
Steel strikes the sands

I dream of a shore where red tides meet the firmament of the universe
3. The Cremation of Cælum (8:03)
Is this the mirrored eternity I wished for?
Descension from death in a hollow darkness without even the comfort of the most dimly lit twilight sky
He blessed me with wings, he blessed me with feathers

And now their burning alone is the light that illuminates my forsaken path
Although the flesh has become one with some blasted and distant earth
This misery will abide forever

The eclipse towards my ultimate atonement
Now I will belong to the same constellations
Fiery divine creatures in the blackness of space
All transgression has been justified with this eucharist
Nothingness and pain will manifest me again and again in that forsaken place

Fallen far below the grace of gods and devils, yet still incarnated in the endless iniquity of this sacrifice
I will take it into me
And chastise myself
To die forever as a superior thought form
4. Mirrored Oblivion Absolved (5:15)
I descended a God and was spat back into the realm of the misbegotten as a spear bleeding the heavens

Ye Lost, follow me and I will lead you into oblivion
Ye Sick, kiss me and I will give you paralysis
Ye dying, speak my name and it will deafen you
Ye faithless, outstretch your hands to me
and I will slash your wrists

Live through me, and I will unveil every truth
To worship and perish as criminals and carpenters alike
5. A Requisite Contrition (6:01)
Spread me across the cosmic sea
I am only ashes now
Not even a name to mark the grave left for dust and silence

I thought they were angels
elevating me through the horrible night

Release me the burden of my human essence
I am drawn to a dismal paradise where sonnance and space are one

I thought it was an angel in the sun
Playing upon a harp of suffering and plagues

Arrogant laughter from space, commanding me to step far beyond the ledge
6. The Fields of Elysium (7:15)
All I can take with me now, are these empty promises. I can't save my life, so inject the endless void into me. There is always a lovely euphoria before the end

Penitence is burning me in every cell

Wells of hope only draw blood
I breathe my vastness of my entrance
I trespass without a key

Passing unmarked, familiar graves
Running eternally toward the sunshine

I cannot save my life
Inject the endless void into me
I know there is always a lovely euphoria...

"Vous entendrez toute l'année
Sur votre tête condamnée
Les cris lamentables des loups
Et des sorcières faméliques,
Les ébats des vieillards lubriques
Et les complots des noirs filous"
