Eden in Ashes Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level
1. Sweet Heresy (3:57)
No more words



Rise

And take your place beside me in all that I've built in disgrace

Grace the halls with curdling calls and watch the sky

The kingdom falls

Blight

Make haste your retreat

Make it with tact, make it discreet

Flood the world, drown the strife, and wash away this tainted life



Taunt the sane

Pinch the vein

Strike the night and scream at the rain

The more I know, the more I hate

Thus begins the Inside



Brick by brick

I begin to rebuild my temple of mourning instilled

Sing us a song for those who have passed

Those who have learned, those who were last

I will ride the changing tide

Start at the end and walk to the sun

Know that you've passed

Know that you've won



Taunt the sane

Pinch the vein

Strike the night and scream at the rain

The more I know, the more I hate

Thus begins the Inside



Sacrifice my right to rot

My chance to heal

My one escape

It's crashing down

I know the sound of pestilence

Of children screaming out



I know you and have seen what you do

I alone

I will not compromise how much pain I inflict



Sovereignty

My paradise burnt down

Effigy, I ask of thee,

"O Heresy, sweet Heresy, you've seen the gates. Now lead me through them"



One more day left to play

Where's the love?

Where's the blood?

I refuse to believe that this is all there is



I feel no shame

I place no blame

Although you've changed, I feel the same
2. Threnody (5:43)
I shall never surrender

How could I cease to recall?

I am the only one left to be this alone

As each day passes by

I celebrate one less to live on this way without you



Mirror breaks, but who's in there

And I can't look long

I won't find you there

Because



She calls to me in my...



Broken dreams are the way we shall live

And through darkened hallways, I pass all I've lived for



Paintings line the walls and

Take me back to the times when lucidity reigned

But how do I return?

Blind to everything here

I lose vision of all that remains all around

As I lose that as well



Innocence captured here in time

Echoes of the past

Pleading me to stop

And yet...



She calls to me in my...



Broken dreams are the way we shall live

And through darkened hallways, I pass all I've lived for

Alone in this world as I stand in the night falling

Deeper from where I thought that I had hit bottom



Plead on my knees so I may breath my last breathe which sets me free

Scream to the seas so that I may drown deep within their depths and cease to be



With your untimely end, I am reborn

In this world of hate for those who have what they love

How long must I remain with this corrupted soul

Crying tears of blood

Until empty, I fall



Long hallways keep them from my mind

Hidden

No one sees through the barriers

Only



She calls to me in my…



Broken dreams are the way we shall live

And through darkened hallways, I pass all I’ve lived for

Alone in this world as I stand in the night falling

Deeper from where I thought that I had hit bottom

Return to me, my strength

My soul still perseveres onward

You reach for my hand

And then pull me away from this



The sun feels as I remembered that day

As the light healed this withering canvas

Yearning to be free

But not to be lost

I came here reluctantly

But knew I belonged

How had I fallen so far?
3. Borealis (5:00)
Speak your name just one last time

Then proceed to bite through my tongue

Close my eyes

Sew them shut

Then burn your face in my mind



Here in the night

Here in the dark

Stitches in my mind rip and tear apart

Leave me here undone

This, I see

This, I know:

This fight I’ll fight on my own



This is a war of silence I keep losing

Despite my senses, I cannot stop caring



The feel of thread behind my lids reminds me of when we were young

Scratch the walls

Bind my hands

And pray the night closes in



Thoughts in my head

Cancer of the mind

Letting chaos in

Killing all it finds

Leave me here unwhole

This, I see

This, I know:

This fight I’ll fight on my own



This is a war of silence I keep losing

Despite my senses, I cannot stop caring

Look to the light and slip into forever

Close your eyes and you’ll see the life I wanted



Yours was the last face I saw before I lost my eyes

Yours was the last name I said before I gave up my voice

Yours were the last words I thought before I lost my mind

Yours was the last life I took before I took my own



Lost my eyes to make my point

And yet I still feel unfulfilled

I can’t speak

I can’t think without a fatal result



Two becoming one

One becoming two

You make me hate everything I do

But I will persist

This, I see

This, I know:

This fight I’ll fight on my own



This is a war of silence I keep losing

Despite my senses, I cannot stop caring

Look to the light and slip into forever

Close your eyes and you’ll see the life I wanted
4. Nothing But a Shadow (5:54)
Trust in me and I will set your heart afire

In time, in time

Touch me with your soothing hand, my desire

In time, in time

Your voice an angel choir, hypnotized, I close my eyes

In time, I will find my way

My glass heart I give to you, shatter me within this shell

In time, I will find my way

Carve your name into my skin; mix your tears into my blood

I hear the cries above calling down for me

I lift myself up to my feet; the strength I’ve gained will be your fall

In time, I will have my way



You won’t believe my suffering was all for you

In time, in time

I have shed my blood, my life, in your name

In time, in time

Beauty lay with fallen gods; silent prayers fall on deaf ears

In time, I will find my way

Distant cries of agony, I lay you down upon your bed

In time, I will find my way

Penetrate your shallow hear, the love I felt I cannot find

I hear the cries above calling down for me

Broken dreams of ecstasy, awake to hear your frightened screams

In time, I will have my way



I don’t need you

Here I stand, I am the only one

I release you

Here I am, kneeling before you



I am nothing but a shadow in your eyes



Hold my heart over an open flame

I don’t mind if I never see the light again

Here I am
5. Aurora (1:18)
6. Empty the Sky (4:06)
One step from my horizon

I think, I dream, I wonder

My honor yearns for reason

I plant this seed of treason



"I, the sky

"I, the heavens

I declare my intentions"



Rain down

Bleed forever

Nothing is held from the dead



I'll rip down the stars, both hands

And wait for the sign, my final act

Die with the sun, burn cold

I'll empty the sky just to believe



Grown into full conception

I sow, I reap, I return

Dealing out retribution

Let truth be known through bloodshed



"I, the sky

"I, the heavens

I declare my intentions"



Weighed down

False endeavor

Truth revealed at my end



I'll rip down the stars, both hands

And what for the sign, my final act

Die with the sun, burn cold

I'll empty the sky just to believe



I will fall and thus the sky will follow



I will fall and thus the sky will follow
7. Crestfallen (3:20)
I feel the wind tonight

Cold

Under pale moonlight

Staring out through the soul of me

Dreaming of false reality



Shades of the frost break with her steps

Restoring life to living death



Overwhelmed by the lust I have

Losing thoughts that I once possessed

Reminisce as to why I’m here

I still wonder why



Yield the will to live my life

Release the soul that I have lost



Night

Hidden us from the light

Truth vanishing with the day

Time takes you away from me

Death

Setting us with the sun



Lies fill the mind of you

Trusting all what I say is true

Staying here as I leave this place

Bitter winds will guide us to the end



I am alive just as you are

We lay to rest as the snow falls



I am keeping her from the end

You are bringing the end to me

I am watching the changing leaves

Night comes to us as they fall



Finally we fall together

Dreams that were so real to me

I can never leave without her

"I spill forth my blood for thee"



The winter is the dawning dark

As the autumn is torn apart

The life force of a lifeless force

The ending I am dreaming up all on my own



Gazing up at a thousand stars

Crystalline windows to her eyes

My throat will open up my veins

I fall in blood up to my knees



Stream of my mind flowing through time

"I will only die with her"


Breathe

Struggling only to

Choke

Whisper an absolute

Cry

All that I want is to

Die

And never look back again



This time I’ll embrace my destiny

This wind is our dying breath

My life I have given you

The thought of us was all I knew



The winter is the dawning dark

As the autumn is torn apart

The life force of a lifeless force

The ending I am dreaming up all on my own
8. Disciple (2:30)
Down on your knees

Pledge to no one

Bow before me

I can never

Know

I can give you everything

Pain

Show me how to accept



I am here

Save your tears



Only the penitent will survive



Trust unto me

Give me reason

Salvate yourself

On my own time

Lie

Put another nail in place

Die

This, the one and only



I am here

Save your tears



I reject your sympathy

I renounce your humble pity

Not from you or anyone

I need it not

I weep for no one



Reach inside of me and you will feel the lust for hate

For war

Excruciating need

I want a way to see into your mind

Your soul

Your veins

To claim what's mine



Burn at my feet

Dust to dust

Rise from your grave

If I must

Strength

More power than a thousand gods

Black

Shining through the wasteland



I am here

Save your tears



Only the penitent will survive



Down on your knees
