The Grim Tales of the Elder Lyrics

Submitted by level Tinfeer
1. I, the Exiled (3:59)
Watching the blue sky, should I feel happy?
My visions are tainted by the dark clouds of sadness.
I'm exhausted by this grim walk and
So far no crossroads has diverged from my path.
I see you, maggots, crawling at my feet
Exploiting weakness,
Awaiting for chances to shiv your blade
Between my ribs, taste the blood,
Suck my innermost out.

Now my peace is ruined,
My sanctuary is built on the scorched ground.
Due to my rage,
Into a restless life I am bound.
Tranquil mind -- banished to the nether.
My garrotted spirit -- cursed into oblivion.

Over these sharp rocks I climb
Shadowed by the misery I've left behind.
The path of daggers, it is for my kind.
Traitor, exiled, ill lose my mind.

A few more steps, there's no sense of time.
Hours, days just pass me by.
No relief from this I find.
I'll wonder until the end of my time.

If I will never feel free, in this cage made of hatred
Foul son, a patriot, save me.
I, the exiled, far from home in this world I know too well
Here I am hated, with life I can't be sated, please hear me.
Keep on tormenting me
And when I reach the gates
Tenfold are my pains, you'll see.

Under the aegis of rancour,
I'm vulnerable indeed.
And when your arrows pierce it,
I'm wounded deadly and deeply.
And I'm not bleeding my warm heartbloods
I'm bleeding out my spirit and all its parts.

And it is tainting all my memories
This bitterness I do not recall to be real.
When the boundaries of my sanity bend
And it's devoured by the filth that
For sure means one's end.

My peace is ruined,
My sanctuary is scorched down to the ground
Due to my rage,
Into a restless life I am bound.
With tranquil mind I'll welcome the nether.
My garrotted spirit will rest in afterlife.

And I will never feel free, in this cage made of hatred!
Foul son, a patriot, save me.
I, the exiled, far from home in this world I know too well
Here I am hated, with life I can't be sated, please hear me.
So keep on tormenting me
And when I reach the gates
Tenfold are my pains

I will never feel free, in this cage made of hatred.
Foul son, a patriot, save me.
I, the exiled, far from home in this world I know too well
Here I am hated, with life I can't be sated, please hear me.
So keep on tormenting me
And when I reach the gates
Tenfold are my pains, you'll see
2. Silent Chanter (4:20)
Barriers you cannot deal with,
Hard like forging a sword from ice-cold steel.
Try stopping all those blows with a decayed shield.
Strikes, when they hit, your flesh won't feel.

Dream forever like a child,
Dream for the things that are lost for a lifetime,
Dream for a life that's not tainted with lust.
Dreamers are meant to stay alive.

Listen to the song of the wind!
A tale where the winds blow strong.
The silent chanter of the tales
Wanders back on strange roads.
Lay your dreams on the song of the wild,
A tale where the wolves are howling strong.
The silent chanter of the tales
Wanders back to home.

If there is...

A home.
Is that what you want?
Is that what you dream of?
Is that what you would pay for
With you life?

Listen to the song of the wind!
A tale where the winds blow strong.
The silent chanter of the tales
Wanders back on strange roads.
Lay your dreams on the song of the wild,
A tale where the wolves are howling strong.
The silent chanter of the tales
Wanders back to home.
3. Mellowheart (6:47)
Your lifestyle brings me so much pain
For my morale is heartfelt, angelic and hallowed.
Yet the decisions I am forced to make
Rend apart the rules I was to follow.

Good riddance, mellowheart,
In this world there's no place for you!
Mellowheart, burning the passion inside,
Mellowheart, soon the skies will come to claim it's
Own mellowheart, now's the last time to stay brave.

What you do, that's a double-edged sword
With no hilt and you don't even feel pain or guilt
And it leaves your poor soul to the grip of such sorrow
That even an angel's touch won't follow and I fear...

If my life is just a sin tainted stagger in blindness
Where a gilded iron fist forces you to silence.
An unguarded trail on the edge of a mountain
Where one crooked step starts your decent into darkness.

And I fear! If one day I am too weak
To fight! And I lose my hope.

That life isn't just a sin tainted stagger in blindness
Where a gilded iron fist forces you to silence.
An unguarded trail on the edge of a mountain
Where one crooked step starts your decent into darkness.

Come on, coward, hunt my precious,
Chokehold, the heart and leave it to bleed.
Come on, coward, hunt my precious,
Chokehold, the heart and leave it to bleed.

Come on, coward, hunt my precious,
Chokehold, the heart and leave it to bleed.
Come on, coward, hunt my precious,
Chokehold, the heart and leave it to bleed.

Good riddance, mellowheart,
In this world there's no place for you!
Mellowheart, burning the passion inside,
Mellowheart, soon the skies will come to claim it's
Own mellowheart, now's the last time to stay brave.

And petrify, do what this world wants you to do.
Rape and kill and hurt and burn
And justify, we smell like a lie,
No silver lining on our clouds at all.
The time, becoming your new self,
Extinguished the last of your kind.
Red is my soul, painted by the blood I bleed,
Drowned the trust I need
4. Rend Me Asunder (4:48)
My hands are tied.
I can only sit and watch all the pain.
The fear is my lust (my fear).
The reflection, the figure, it's me.
These are the times of great evil.

Shadow of a man, like broken steel,
My only wish was to have a heart
Mourning the things that I wanted to be.
Tomorrow it all might be gone!

Left all alone, to the mercy of light,
Sanity is far and gone
Soared to the skies with the warming winds.
Follow my mark, rend me asunder!

Flying to the skies, the highest high.
Diving down, from my pride, until I die.
With broken wings, oh my bride, we cannot fly high.

Bound to the earth until we die.
Eternity, for gods, do you feel alive?
Like a frozen flower, we wither and die.
Like my grave, the citadel, where I will end.

Flying to the skies, the highest high.
Diving down, from my pride, until I die.
With broken wings, oh my bride, we cannot fly high.

It hurts so much,
I burn in the fiery flames.
And I get no rest
For this is the birth
Of my reign of nightmares.

Shadow of a man, like broken steel,
My only wish was to have a heart
Mourning the things that I wanted to be.
Tomorrow it all might be gone!

Left all alone, to the mercy of light,
Sanity is far and gone
Soared to the skies with the warming winds.
Follow my mark, rend me asunder!

Flying to the skies, the highest high.
Diving down, from my pride, until I die.
With broken wings, oh my bride, we cannot fly high
5. Citadel (5:37)
And I fly!

I guess...
I exist to rise and fall like dawn and dusk.
A child of day and night, golden and white,
And my light is fading by the cycles of beheading me.

The groaning earth, freezing cold.
Bleeding lakes, tormented soil.
Hear my child, there are no more lies!
Like a man I was born and I'll die.

By the nine gods of men,
I'm astonished at what you've done.
For gold you have sundered,
All the bonds to your home.

By the eight graves of men,
Who once were the symbols of war.
May they sentence you like
We mortals never could have.

And like the seventh cursed lord
Of the argent seas,
I'm forged by the fires in the damp dark deeps
And hardened by the snow and frost so grim.
But still I suffer from undead dreams.

My downfall!

Icy is the touch of fingers creeping on my skin.
Whispering to my ear 'Only death makes us free.'
(Delusions break to shivers.)
And through the gateways the foretold truth I see!

The groaning earth, freezing cold.
Bleeding lakes, tormented soil.
Hear my child, there are no more lies!
Like a man I was born and I'll die.

By the nine gods of men,
I'm astonished at what you've done.
For gold you have sundered,
All the bonds to your home.

By the eight graves of men,
Who once were the symbols of war.
May they sentence you like
We mortals never could have.

And like the seventh cursed lord
Of the argent seas,
I'm forged by the fires in the damp dark deeps
And hardened by the snow and frost so grim.
But still I suffer from undead dreams.

And I fly!
My downfall!
My downfall!
6. The Last Heartbeat of an Era (4:22)
Can you see how they rise?
The ones of your kind
From the mouldy ground
To wreck the ones who lived.
For the reckoning you fight.

With these cursed eyes
Tears of blood is all I cry!
With those tears I seal the archaic storm
So my realm won't vanish and be no more.

And took the thousand shattered pieces
Of her signet of divinity.
With so silent steps she walks among us for eternity.
For the sake of bitter hate now slaying all who can rest.
For the love of seeing the light in dying men's eyes to fade.

I'm dreaming of a dark forestland.
This time you, my sun, will die.
It is I who rules the night.
Now death is flowing free and I can't die!

And bound in this rotten land.
Fell in this trap like a mortal man.
At the fall of dusk I see the end of a dying race.
The heirs of heroes won't answer the call.

And took the thousand shattered pieces
Of her signet of divinity.
With so silent steps she walks among us for eternity.
For the sake of bitter hate now slaying all who can rest.
For the love of the last heartbeat of an era
7. The Vengeance Orchestra (5:57)
Through the thousand gates of death I fought and gained my freedom.
Rancorous is my heart, envenomed by the poison from my abysmal wounds.
Vindictive I am...

Those who bring back the light, upon my people they weaved the night.
The malicious, cunning consequence of the hell-bent wish to heal the heartless.
And those who return to darkness are blinded by their own godliness.
Brothers and sisters, undress that harness and follow my lead, escape from this Hades!

So this is the land,
Our sanctuary after captivity!
A beautiful place, a peaceful dream.
Not for my soul, so young yet so old.

Silence is vast, in enchanting ways,
Chanting words decreasing the pain.
With calming words you pray
'My torment shall last for eternity.'
Like it takes forever for a pool
Of blood red tears to dry under the suns,
But may it not be in vain.
Take your own destiny, for your own victory.
You, my brethren, I desire to join.

Never forget who did this to us!
Embrace your hate, achieve vengeance for us.
Can you hear their chant, the vengeance orchestra?
Float in fear, a tear in the grievous ocean.

Through the thousand gates of delusion I fought and gained my freedom.
Relieved is my heart, for the poison is cured from my abysmal wounds.

Narrow is the path I'm walking on.
I cradle death on my open palm.
All becomes clear soon my mourning is over.
The day when I die I'll be more than alive.

Silence is vast, in enchanting ways,
Chanting words decreasing the pain.
With calming words you pray
'My torment shall last for eternity.'
Like it takes forever for a pool
Of blood red tears to dry under the suns,
But may it not be in vain.
Take your own destiny, for your own victory.
You, my brethren, I desire to join.

Never forget who did this to us!
Embrace your hate, achieve vengeance for us.
Can you hear their chant, the vengeance orchestra?
Float in fear, a tear in the grievous ocean.

Never forget who did this to us!
Embrace your hate, achieve vengeance for us.
Can you hear their chant, the vengeance orchestra?
Float in fear, a tear in the grievous ocean
