Ode to Quietus Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Beyond the Dead Cold Surface (6:47)
Stare into the inevitable end
so weak from the vulturing disease
Awaiting the final collapse
Too frail to see the light of a new day

Noctambulant
A realm of nothingness
beyond the dead cold surface
lies yet a string of life
Caught inside walls of my mind
Not distracted by age or time

Restrained to a concious between two worlds
with a future dim and unable to redeem

Noctambulant
A realm of nothingness
beyond the dead cold surface
lies yet a string of life
Caught inside walls of my mind
not distracted by age or time

With soundless tongues they speak my name
in timeless guise I hide to be found
Fumbling in shades until my mind awakes
but my dawn seems eternities away

Are these walls my only shelter?
A motionless shell

Stare into the inevitable end
so weak from the vulturing disease
Awaiting the final collapse
too frail to see the light of a new day
Nothing lasts to prevail
Bones shall wither

Noctambulant
A realm of nothingness
beyond the dead cold surface
lies yet a string of life
Caught inside walls of my mind
not distracted by age or time
2. Resurrection of Madness (5:03)
The vile retribution from crafting the last ceremonial stand
A craving too tempting to bide for, the pain and destruction at hand
Redemption as his chants infects us all, redeeming his failure in life
Consuming with his necromancing controls, cunning and his circle alights

Control - Consumed affected heart
Hands out - Relieve your weary soul
Command - The executioner releases your potency

Powers will stir in his circle, attracting the souls of the dead
He made out an err in his ritual though, by laying you up on that bed
A study of backgrounds your tale untold, infected by death's mortal cold
By madness be driven by madness controlled, uncontrol stirred in his fold

Control - Consumed affected heart
Hands out - Relieve your weary soul
Command - The executioner releases your potency

Out of Brimston, an army of reeking dead
Resurrecting such madness is fatal, too extensive to comprehend

Control - Consumed affected heart
Hands out - Relieve your weary soul
Command - The executioner releases your potency

Avenge me, such wit shouldn't fall in such hands
the opportunity sits there, it spits in your face

Out of Brimston, an army of reeking dead
Resurrecting such madness is fatal, too extensive to comprehend

And you never cared where allegiance lied,
you brought back your malice to life
Evolution is spinning an era unfold, madness is in control

Avenge me, such wit shouldn't fall in such hands
The opportunity sits there it spits in your face
3. The Gloom that is His World (4:25)
*spoken* In this haunted shell is his taunted self

He falls into another brothers life
A twin built by shaded lies
repressed deep down inside
Brings forth all he denies

Oh the sickness, a gnawing fever in his soul
And the darkness that feeds his fear is in control

*spoken* In this broken shell, brooding endless hell

What once was is there no more
Wiped clean what was before
But still some self remains therein
All withered up and dried

In shadows wake
Then darkness face
The gloom that is his world
In shadows tread
Poor living dead
The gloom that is his world

Oh the sickness, a gnawing fever in his soul
And the darkness that feeds his fear is in control

Oh the sickness is a foul injection in his soul
And the darkness that feeds his fear is in control

Now the mirrors face is not what he is used to see
He has chained his self inside himself
The gloom filled world is all that's left inside
4. Homeland (5:31)
Daylight have fled for the coming night
So her calls reach from the mist past the cobblestones
Blashpemy, turn a region from motion to terror
Unavoidable end as the witch breathes nigh

Up through the streets her calamity lingers
Freezing their blood and devouring all life

Oh how it echoes still
imprison her will

Banished, she took her deeds to the underground
Afterglow, there she fought for her afterlife

So her fate a thousand years, down the streams of fire she so hated
As the Queen of death and night, so became the source of her essence
Venerate her, Elizabeth
as she fight for her stride back to her homeland

Spitting curses so damned and defiled
so began her walk through the mist and time

Amon Nin walking surface ground again
This time the ground beneath her ablaze

Oh how it echoes still
a millenia later, set awaken her will

Utter chaos stepped down on the scene, what a scheme to endure
this time the witch laughed with tremor, her body rotten, her mind was sore
where she walked corpses remained on the ground beneath her feet
like an army unstoppably marching without either goal or reprieve

So her fate forever more, on the surface she so blindly hated
As the Queen of death and night, for it was the source of her essence
Venerate her, Elizabeth Amon Nin back in her homeland again
5. Coven of Blood (4:41)
You lost yourself a second and everything went awry
Risked it all for the coven in the blink of an eye
Centuries of practise and knowledge now fucking lost
Total dissolvement, to what cost?

You lost yourself a second and everything went awry
To the burning hunger and the feasting of blood
The famine spread like fire the burning would never stop
All because you can't resist blood

You feast my blood
You feast my poisonous, tainted blood
Blood!

Hollow, invented breed
Tainted, sanguinarian

You lost yourself a second and everything went awry
Risked it all for the coven in the blink of an eye
Centuries of practise and knowledge now fucking lost
Total dissolvement, to what cost?

You lost yourself a second and everything went awry
To the burning hunger and the feasting of blood
The famine spread like fire the burning would never stop
All because you can't go back

Blood!
You sick leach, you feast my blood
You feast my poisonous, tainted blood
Parasite!!
6. My Demon (4:22)
The recent herd of nightmares, not to be taken lightly
Not only sleep perpetrates them in treatorous ways

My solemn senses warn me, how could I feel so fine?
This new acquintance won me over without a fight

Eyes open, bloody slumber
Sleeping side by side with scorn
Come wake me, feed my heartbeat for not to fall asleep no more

Last slumber, bloody somber
Sets the fire up anew
So tainted, soulless ire
From the demon's point of view

First declare your precense to let them know you're in
Then you let the harvesting begin
Somewhere in their darkness, fought to be uncrowned
and they're protected from no one
Fast protruding precense of everlasting sleep
Chaos comes to the mourning in times of the weak
Huddle in your prison to prevent your own escape
I demon rise

Your own innocense counts for nothing then
When your heart starts to unwind, sadness comes in

Another night of silence, the darkness in my veins
waking me from defiance, to heed my demons will

My demon rise
7. Starvation 12 (5:33)
2012 the supplies ran dry and an infestation spread worldwide
Then chaos reigned and a fight elapsed for fifty years to come
As the battles passed beyond our morales and the hunger forced us to resign
so the primal instincts of feeding made us eat even those alive

Hunger, leaves you the taste for blood
Blood, the taste makes you feel alive

Six generations died to fight an endless fight
When all the starving stirred then came the point of no return

The Starvation twelve became year zero
It contaminated all our souls
To get stilled we feasted on our brethren
All that once mattered was now gone

Into starvation we marched without knowing it would be our last act before we died...

Hunger, leaves you the taste for blood
Blood, the taste makes you feel alive
8. Falling Asleep (6:27)
Another life spent in human gowns, Seventy years of disorder
Fucked up years in fucked up times

I ended myself this time, ending the urge of indulgence
Medals don't crown a life well spent

To what use? Spending another lifetime falling asleep
When our deeds don't cover the cost of time

Dreamworld, suffer in the streams of the chaos swirl
Dreams coming through, utopia
This endless pain, come to an end
Don't wake me up, being born again

From countenance of fate to disintegrating mourns
the falling leave us stained, to wake up forever more

When the darkness surrounds you and the black sun rise, holding your scythe
You find yourself waking up, to find a part of you've solely died
