Dreams of the Carrion Kind Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. De Profundis (intro) (0:45)
2. Stench of Paradise Burning (4:51)
Horrid life of cruelty strips the soul away
Evil lies revealed, it's a presence undenied
Crumbling morality infects the swarming race
Flames of the unfettered, a fate beyond redemption

Cleansing fire, all consuming
Idyllic dream, lost in chaos
Suffer

Procession into darkness, descent to degradation
Contemptuous of impurity, inferno of extinction

Drowning in a sea of fire, the rapture of cremation
Entranced by lucid visions of paradise in flames

Writhing pit of misery from which there's no escape
Doomed before inception to end in suffering
Grovelling in decadence, in fear of retribution
Blackened corpse of paradise scorched and turned to ash

Procession into darkness, descent to degradation
Contemptuous of impurity, inferno of extinction

Cleansing fire, all consuming
Idyllic dream, lost in chaos

Drowning in a sea of fire, the rapture of cremation
Only death remains and the stench of paradise burning
3. Beyond the Flesh (4:47)
Paralyzed as my life slips away
I'm mortified by my disease
Terrified of my mortality
But doomed to find what lies beyond

My conscience reawakens
As I shed my mortal shell
Drifting in the memories
Of a once embodied life
Lost beyond the carnal realm
Absorbed in desolation
Trapped within this labyrinth
Of faded recollection

Deceased and yet my mind remains
Endless mental excruciation
Tormented thorough memory
No life beyond the flesh

My body rotting in the grave
Its vital essence gone
My spirit writhes in nothingness
Serenity has been denied me
Afterlife of suffering
In immortal unconsciousness
I'm agonised eternally
By absence of flesh

Deceased and yet my mind remains
Endless mental excruciation
Tormented thorough memory
Why can't I rest in peace?

Wallowing in empty pain
I'm plagued with lust to live again
Damned to spent eternity
In disembodied misery

Imprisoned in this solitary hell
Anguished by visions of life
In mourning of my tortured destiny
Tantalized forevermore
4. In Sufferance (4:57)
Rituals contrived to ease the mind
Mysteries revealed, or are they lies?
The ultimate truth remains unknown until you die
Feeding the madness of uncertainty

Fearful of revenge
But sowing the violent seed
A lifetime of transgressions
Mentally tortured
Self-inflicted punishment
No judgement more severe

A twisted course bound by fate
Spiralling plunge, shrouded in fear
Is there a purpose or merely destiny?
Master or pawn of life's cruelties

Fearful of revenge
But sowing the violent seed
A lifetime of transgressions
Mentally tortured
Self-inflicted punishment
No judgement more severe

The curse of life, anticipating fate
Aware that one day death will come
Infernal shadows cast upon our earthly shells
Does life just cease or are our souls reborn?

Enigma of the absolute
Useless to repent
What is the cost of paradise
A living death of righteous lies
Shackled by a mindless faith
Lamenting in vain
Falling deep into distress
Life spent in sufferance

Shattered mind, corrupted flesh
Cowering in mortal fear
Clinging to a fading life
Futile prayer as the end draws near
Body now a withered frame
Fallen prey to time
Final thoughts are a regret
Dying without ever knowing life

In sufferance
5. Monarch of the Sleeping Marches (5:03)
On the nightward shores of dream
Beyond the waking plain
Gates of horn and ivory
Bid welcome to Oneiro's domain
Enter the nocturnal world
Haunt of weary minds
Revel in the fields of nightmare
Dreams of the Carrion kind

Monarch of the sleeping marches
Creature of no end
Son of Hypnos, shaper of the dreaming
Abducted and imprisoned
With escape he takes revenge
His captors face the nightmare everlasting

Visit to the realms infernal
Come to reclaim his own
Domicile of damned souls
Demonkind and the neverborn
Taking flight on nothing winds
Through uncreated wastes
Wary of the perils
Beyond damnation's gates

Called upon by destiny
Conclave of the endless now begins
Dream taunted by desire
Returning once again to the abyss
Within the bounds, infernal now
Desolation reigns supreme
Forsaking his majestic realm
The first among the fallen sheds his wings

Cursed with the abysmal key
Tortured souls are now unleased
Possession of this black kingdom
Now the burden of Lord Morpheus

On the nightward shores of dream
Beyond the waking plain
Gates of horn and ivory
Bid welcome to Oneiro's domain
Creator of the dreamscape
Lord of weary minds
Revel in the fields of nightmare
Dreams of the Carrion kind

Monarch of the sleeping marches
Creature of no end
Son of Hypnos, shaper of the dreaming
Triumphantly resolving
The sovereignty of hell
Free now to return to his dominion
6. Soul Erosion (4:41)
Life's tragedies, leaving mental scars
Tortured by fear
Viciousness breeding emptiness

A sickness of the soul, emotions mummified
Affliction of dementia, compassion nullified

A weakened state of being
Which leaves the sences numb
Victimized by despair
And unrelenting depression

The death of innocence
Virtue's decay
Engulfed by selfishness
As the soul begins to fade

Overcome by subconscious urges
Driven to sadistic release
A wretched fleeting existence
Devoid of humanity
Destroyed by years of defilement
Conscience devoured

Drawn into infamy
Sanity decomposed
Scourge of subconsciousness
Erosion of soul

Metamorphosis
Cynical and inhuman
The mind desensitized
By traumatic evolution

Compelled into derangement
By a life of atrocities
Overcome by subconscious urges
Driven to sadistic release
A wretched fleeting existence
Devoid of humanity
7. Entranced (5:52)
Ancestral home in the twilight deeps
Beckons to me with unseen fingers
Forefathers haunt
Calling to me from this dark charnel house
Corrupted through lifelong seclusion
Driven by an unnatural force
Drawn to this vault
Declivity where the light reaches not

Enigmatic crypt of my bloodline
Place of ancestral remains
Temple of my fascination
Possessing me

Reversion to past generations
A decadent state of the mind
Return to repellant scions
Of the primitive

Enchanting black recesses of the past
Welcome me to my true home

Familiar far beyond the tenancy
Of the body which I now possess
Eyes affixed upon the dank portal
Alone I lie entranced

Echoes of my forgotten lives
Summoning me to the gothic retreat
Here I belong
My casket awaits, my heritage calls
Sinister flashes of supersight
Penetrate the veils of empiricism
Sanity wanes
I witness my lineage perish in flames

Enigmatic crypt of my bloodline
Place of ancestral remains
Temple of my fascination
Possessing me

Reversion to past generations
A decadent state of the mind
Return to repellant scions
Of the primitive

Delving into the terrors
Of my inherited scorn
Undeniable heritage
Innocent nevermore

Though but twenty-one winters have
Chilled my bodily frame
Blasphemy pours in torrents from my lips

Enchanting black recesses of the past
Welcome me to my true home

Familiar far beyond the tenancy
Of the body which I now possess
Eyes affixed upon the dank portal
Alone I lie entranced
8. Confine of Shadows (5:05)
Lurking in dormancy, unseen spore of hate
Insidious infection, festering in dreams
Rising from the hidden shadows of decay
In solitude and suffering, an eon of
malignant incubation
Unborn of silent fears and self delusion
The anatomy of sorrow
Soulless incarnation of disease

Contagion of aberration
The seed was once submerged
Incessant torment
Vile contemplation
Of repulsive fantasies
Causing imminent psychosis

Horrific alteration
Wrought from within
The source of revulsion
Withering away

Once concealed, within the twisted maze of psyche
Risen into dominance, obliteration of suppression
Unborn of silent fears and self delusion
The anatomy of sorrow
Soulless incarnation of disease

From the confine of shadows
Engrossed in depravity
Unchained spawn of hate
Inner transformation
The cycle now complete
9. Deadspawn (4:28)
Born with inhuman abilities
Communication with the dead
Necroscopic transfer
From the afterlife
Drawn to the fields of mortality
Beckoned by the restless souls
Nethworldly knowledge
Seeps into the mind

Deathless being, from beyond
A sepulchral voice, incorporeal
Unseen presence, ancient fiend
I bequeath the night into thee

Entity of immense evil
Lying stagnant, shackled in the earth
Undead and buried for centuries
Crying out in crimson lust

Corpses call, up from their tombs
Silently, dead thoughts are exhumed
Drawing strength from rotted minds
Defying death, transcending time

Echoing from rancid depths
Ghastly voices of unrest
Cries of fear from lives passed on
Summoning the deadspawn

Warned of the evil left behind
And of perils yet to come
Excavating wisdom
Of the teeming dead
Torm from his mortal existence
Retreat into the continiuum
Disembodied spectre
Necroscope lives on

Deathless being, from beyond
A sepulchral voice, incorporeal
Unseen presence, ancient fiend
I bequeath the night into thee

Entity of immense evil
Lying stagnant, shackled in the earth
Undead and buried for centuries
Crying out in crimson lust

Echoing from rancid depths
Ghastly voices of unrest
Cries of fear from lives passed on
Summoning the deadspawn
10. Sea of Tears (5:01)
nflicted upon willing flesh
Obsession's punishment
Resculpted
Into deranged abstraction

Infernal equinox
Marks the time of configuration

The nameless one
Vasa Inquitatis
His labyrinthine machinations
Of blessed order shall prevail
The heart of damnation quells
The infection of chaos

Sweet textures
Of insane pleasures
Sensations so unreal
False punishment
Glorious deception
Born on a sea of tears

Purified in pain
Given structure, raped of human form
Recreated flesh
Embodiment of crystalline perfection

Pirified in pain
Clutching at the bossom of despair
Huddled masses weep
Eternal sorrow on a sea of tears
11. Immemorial Dream (outro) (2:15)
