Purgatory Afterglow Lyrics

1. Twilight (7:51)
I close your eyes and whisper "Goodbye".
You will never see how I cry.
I can recall what you said to me once:
"If I leave there will be a sign"
And the twilight will show me tonight.

From dusk to dawn. That's when we arise.
All souls forlorn, come down from the skies.
We're called the mist by the human race.
But we do exist in a million ways.

OH I'M IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT
AND I OBEY THE MOON.
I'M IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT.
THE MIST WILL DANCE AND THE ELVES WILL SING THEIR CROON.

My eyes will not believe the sight.
They dance in trance this magic night.
The sound that did enchant my ears.
I feel my eyes release the tears.

I, I know the answer now.
To die, I'm no longer afraid somehow.
And now I know that there is another way for me to go.
And now they show that there is life in the afterglow.
I can feel the presence of the unknown side.
The shivers infest my body. This cannot be denied.

OH, WE'RE IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT...
AND WE OBEY THE MOON.
WE'RE IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT.
THE MIST WILL DANCE AND THE ELVES WILL SING THEIR CROON.

No way! This can't be a dream!
I pinched my skin to make sure I was awake.
What I see might be too much to take.
The dance in a circle above the ground and I can see you and it looks like you're still alive.
Somehow you seem so relieved.
A nightbird chasing the shadows fly right through your body and then I know that you don't really exist.
You're just a reflection in this midsummer dance.
I feel my heart pounding faster than ever before, I must have stopped breathing.
The image of you fades.
And now I know why had the strong feeling that I must find this place you once described and to see your final dance.
Will we ever meet again? No!

OH, THEY'RE IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT
AND I OBEY THE MOON.
THEY'RE IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT.
THE MIST WILL DANCE AND THE ELVES WILL SING THEIR CROON.

They fade away and so do I.
You're gone, I'll always wonder why you came
and made me realize that you exist there in the twilight sky.

Is this a dream or plain reality?
It feels more like a trip to what I never thought I'd see.
Sudden fear took a hold on my mind.
I had to move away unless I would go blind.

OH, YOU'RE IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT...
AND YOU OBEY THE MOON.
YOU'RE IN THE TWILIGHT WORLD TONIGHT.
THE MIST WILL DANCE AND THE ELVES WILL SING THEIR CROON.

I, I know the answer now.
To die I am no longer afraid somehow.
So fade away...

2. Of Darksome Origin (5:02)
I am immortal. I am strong. I am godforsaken.
I am in command and nothing will go wrong.
I am eternal. I am blessed. I will awaken.
I am the reason to why all dead can't rest.
Evil. I feel the darkness growing in my soul.
Power. join me, the nightly, I am in control.
OF DARKSOME ORIGIN. BRING LIFE TO THE DEAD.
THEY ARE MY SOLDIERS WHO SOON SHALL BE FED.
Die! Of darksome origin. They call me the bringer of torture.

They've named me the lord of hate
But the things I've done this far is nothing.
The head of this world on a plate.
I am invincible. I am the one.
The greatest tyrant. The darkest son.
I am thy master. I am king.
You know you will be dead when I am gone...
No use of trying to challenge, I've already won.
Fear me. I am the king of what you stand upon.
OF DARKSOME ORIGIN... Uncrucified.
I awoke = Jesus died.
Feeding of impurity. Creator lies --- I.
Heaven is burning. I can feel the holy smell.
Flames descending. Bringing life to the ones in hell.
Blackness rising and now the time has come to pray...
No use loser, your life is what I take away!
OF DARKSOME ORIGIN...

3. Blood-Colored (4:00)
I hear the sound of darkness
moving closer to my ears.
All alone and wounded I lie here
resembling all the years.
This war is over for mankind.
The X-machines will end us all.
Technology is fatal. We will see the future
and then we fall.
Thunder and Lightning.
The rain is whipping my naked skin.
Screaming. Dying in sin.
BLOOD-COLORED.
THE X-MACHINES JUST WIPED AWAY ALL LIFE.
THE BLOOD-COLORED SKY
IS THE ONLY THING
THAT WILL LIVE WHEN I DIE.
All dead, all gone, all hope is lost.
They came from nowhere to end our race.
I see the center of the world,
it's now a desert that no wind will embrace.
Dark formations,
shadows laugh. I lie here waiting for the end.
I know they will send the last ones down to make sure
that we all descend.
Nightmares come true. Why can't I put myself away??
Dying inside. Or am I already dead??
BLOOD-COLORED...
Women and children screaming in pain.
I hear the sound of darkness moving closer to my ears.
This war is over for mankind. The X-machines will end us all.

Technology is fatal. We will see the future and then we fall.

Thunder and Lightning. The rain is whipping my naked skin.
Screaming. Dying in sin.
BLOOD-COLORED...
4. Silent (5:05)
To live a life in silence, to live without the word.
I'm sitting here like a silent bird.
You try to understand the symbols of my hand.
I am like a rock that has turned to sand.

SILENT.
MUTED FOR ETERNAL TIME?
SO VIOLENT.
BUT I JUST CAN'T CONFESS MY CRIME

Like every human being there is a thing I seek.
For me the day when I can finally speak.
To hear my voice again, I still remember when
I could say what was on my mind.
I rule the streets at night, against myself I fight.
I am only trying to survive you see.
No man will ever live after what I will give.
His soul will go to meet my voice up there.

SILENT.
MUTED FOR ETERNAL TIME?
SO VIOLENT.
BUT I JUST CAN'T CONFESS MY CRIME

Piece by piece I die. Soon there's no
tears to cry. I am fading out just like a star falling
from the sky! I hear me in my dreams. I can't deny
I am suffering. Judge from my silent screams.
Without my voice I am withering.
Oh, how I wish to scream and to wake
up from this dream, but the pain I feel is real.
I try to say my name. But I always hear the same:
Silence! It drives me insane. To live a life in silence,
to live without the word. I'm sitting here like a silent bird.

You try to understand the symbols of my hand. I am like a
rock that has turned to sand. Like every human being there's
a thing I seek, for me the day when I can finally speak. To
hear my voice again I still remember when I could say what
was on my mind. Silent.

SILENT.
MUTED FOR ETERNAL TIME?
SO VIOLENT.
BUT I JUST CAN'T CONFESS MY CRIME

The written word has no meaning,
there is no harmony in my words.
5. Black Tears (3:15)
When I'm in this state of mind
I'm wishing I was blind. Sometimes life is
more than pain, to me

I feel the power of my grief. Death would be
such a relief. All the secrets that I hide
would die, with me.

Depression is my only friend. Will this
torture never end? Let me carry on to
the dreamers sky.

I keep crying in my dreams.
Can you hear my endless screams?
When I fade away I fade alone.

[Chorus:]
THIS FLUID ON MY CHEEK, IT DRAINS ME
I GET WEAK. MY HEART IS COLD & BLEAK
BLACK BLOOD. BLACK TEARS.

Life is just a masquerade. In dept to myself,
but I can't pay. Soon I'll call it all a day, away.
I've never felt what you call guilt.
I still believe "Do what thou wilt"
My sorrow will destroy the world I've built.

[Chorus]

6. Elegy (3:57)
Crying. The anger and sorrow in your eyes is shining
through your disguise, you can not hide all your lies!
Falling. The abyss you enter is so deep, it doesn't
matter how much you will weep, you will never reach
the ground again. You're draining your emotions,
the poison is your God. Injection for depression. The
needle is your rod. Your heart will never feel. The
love that it will steal.

[Chorus:] NEXT TIME YOU SEE THE STARS ALIGHT,
LIKE DIAMONDS IN THE WINTER NIGHT. DO THINK
OF ME, REMEMBER ME. SO READS MY ELEGY. NEXT TIME I
SEE THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT LIKE WHITE EYES IN THE
DARKENED LIGHT, I'M FREE NO CHAINS ARE HOLDING ME.
BUT STILL I LIVE BY YOUR ELEGY.

Leaving. The world I leave will never know. But below
you will see my glow and the fire shall be eternal.
Weeping. The tears you cry, I know the taste. Can't
you see they're such a waste. You can never bring
me back again. You'll never know what happened but I
couldn't go on. It felt like I was running a race
that no man ever won. My soul will always love the
ones I am far above...

[Chorus]

Tears are falling... Tears are falling in the dark.
Your fears are calling. I've left my mark.
Burning. The flames that rise will be my end. So on for
now I will pretend that I am back on earth again.
Lonely. The shadows haunt me as I burn. Now I know
there is no return. My soul will slowly turn to dust.
I'm passing through dimensions where no one's ever been.
I'm heading for the secrets that no man's ever seen.
What lies below will I ever know??(!?)

[Chorus]

7. Velvet Dreams (7:10)
I wipe the dust from shoulders, the dust from velvet sands.
In dreamland of non-divine, free of all space and time.
I watch across the fileds, the fields of forever.
And as the sand turns t ostars in my eyes... I'm no longer blind.
Start to walk thru landscapes of frozen glass.
The velvet sands reflect me like a mirror.
My skin is pale blue but I feel my body burning with fever.
I see myself in the velvet sand, what am I? Human, soul or demon??
Embodied emotions, infinite. Eternal sleep awaits me as I am

DREAMING VELVET DREAMS, CRYING PURPLE TEARS,
I CHANGE. LAUGHTER TURNS TO HATE.
BLOOD-DROWNED ARE MY THOUGHTS. THE RAINBOW TURNS ALL RED.
I BURN I'M IN FIRE BURNED BY VELVET DREAMS.

I strole thru the infinite garden of neverening frost.
Unblessed, unpure. Here I am, my own god and master.
Everything is soft like velvet, but the velvet dreams obscure my mind.
I pick a rose so black but I am scarred by the thorns.
And it feels like I was in fire. Burned by velvet dreams.
That seems so safe...
Bless me. Caress me. Take away my fears.
Thru the pain in velvet dreams, wipe away my purple tears.
Burn me, turn me. Make me one with the other side.
Healed by the burning in velvet dreams, with the dead now i ride.
Embodied emotions, infinite. Sleep awaits no longer nevermore shall I...

DREAM THOSE VELVET DREAMS, CRY THOSE PURPLE TEARS.
NEVER, NEVERMORE. I STAND ABOUT DIVINE.
GOD OF NONE AND ALL. KNOWLEDGE BEYOND.
THE RAINBOW AND THE STARS. NEVER MORE SHALL I.
DREAMS THOSE VELVET DREAMS, CRY THOSE PURPLE TEARS.
DREAM THOSE VELVET DREAMS, CRY THOSE PURPLE TEARS.
NEVER, NEVERMORE. I STAND ABOUT DIVINE.
GOD OF NONE AND ALL. KNOWLEDGE BEYOND.
THE RAINBOW AND THE STARS.

Now I am the unknown that you love. God of none and all.
8. Enter Chaos (2:24)
Freedom = fuck! People secure their freedom with a gun.
They have lost faith in everything even in themselves.
Gun-propaganda from the land of the free - "The land of pain and misery".
We must be able to protect ourselves.
What!? Face a gun with a gun??? (!!!)
Violence breeds violence, death is the only outcome.
Hate breeds hate. Transform to chaos.

CAN'T YOU SEE IT? ARE YOU BLIND? A fuckING WARGAMS OF MANKIND.
WITHOUT VOICE, WITHOUT CHOICE THE WORLD WILL ENTER CHAOS!

"With my gun, I am safe" Kiss my ass!!
You still live in fear! Spare me the pain to live in bullet rain.
Fear is the cause that triggers the pain
that leads us to blow out each others brains.
Gun-propaganda from the land of the free - "The land of pain and misery".
We must be able to protect ourselves.
What!? Face a gun with a gun??? (!!!)
Violence breeds violence, death is the only outcome.
Hate breeds hate. Transforms to chaos...

CAN'T YOU SEE IT? ARE YOU BLIND?... CHAOS!!

9. The Sinner and the Sadness (3:06)
Born a slave. Chained since day one.
From the cradle to the grave you'll be
"The holy son". Raised to obey. Taught
to see the light. Forced to pray and to
praise the "fathers" might. I can see. I can
hear. Mass indoctrination. Then the truth
will appear, mental devastation.

MY SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN, THE BEGINNING OF THE MADNESS.
I FEAR NO FOE FOR I AM ETERNAL. AIN'T GONNA FEEL NO GRIEF.
THE SINNER AND THE SADNESS. I FUCK THE LAW I KILL IN THE NAME OF CHRIST.

I am sick. I believe that I am the new messiah.
The sinner you can't retrieve
I am the god of christianity. Born to sin and
to have them all forgiven. A deceiver, no believer.
You're suck you holy fake. Night and day, anyway,
I benight the unpure. Live in sin. And where I've
been?? I have blessed a whore!!

TO DEATH YOU WILL BE DRIVEN. THE BEGINNING OF THE MADNESS.
I FEAR NO FOE FOR I AM ETERNAL. AIN'T GONNA FEEL NO GRIEF.
THE SINNER AND THE SADNESS. I FUCK THE LAW I KILL IN THE NAME OF CHRIST.

I am the new messiah. I am the god of fire.
I will make you bleed.
Christianicide. To the cross - crucified.
Christianicide. I will laugh - lies denied.

MY SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN...
10. Song of Sirens (2:33)
War world now. Hear the song of the sirens.
Then silence won't be for long.
Hear the digging. All grave, too soon?
Earth Pompeii. The second moon.

BEACHWORLD... AND THE SONG OF SIRENS
TO THE BEACHWORLD... AND THE SONG OF SIRENS.

Kill all air. Smoke the ground.
Neverflow. Bleeding trees.
End all time. Dismembered sun.
Living Death

AND TO THE BEACHWORLD... AND THE SONG OF SIRENS
TO THE BEACHWORLD... AND THE SONG OF SIRENS

War world now...
