A Line of Deathless Kings Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. To Remain Tombless (6:06)
The weary creak of my bones
Exhausted voice, deathly tones
Arms of lead, skin drawn tight
No long a princely sight
Face is gaunt, pale and thin
Bent and grate and full of sin

Pass to me
Wine and song
For I'll be
Soon long gone

Cast me down, upon the dust
My dry bones remain tombless
From my life, a rose is grown
Rains they come.
The winds blow

Winter haunts me
Nowhere to flee

Take me back. Young was I
Within her arms we could fly
Grey am I, and all alone
I feel like I'm far from home

Grace has fled here
But He is so near
In shadows lie
My hopes of life

Black wings fold me
In their symphony
Long the winter nights are
Grace is so far

Leaves the fall in time
Drifting down in time
Darkness comes, right on time

Descend upon me
Wings from above
Goodbye to lie
Farewell my loves.
2. L'Amour Detruit (9:08)
The honey of romance, so sweet for us
Through swaying grass we run in arms, just us
The honey of romance, our treat to us
These arms I fold around you.
It's just us.

Your charms so rare
My flesh laid bare
In arms we dare

I will kiss her mouth and her dark eyes
Lose myself freely in her dark eyes
Fall right through her soul, her mind, her skies

Our limbs entwined
Then comes our minds
It's hope we find

The red lips of her mouth - they call to me

Her mind is mine
Her flesh my kind
Warm, soft, smooth, mine!

I lack for nought
Her mind welcomes my thoughts

Entering the dark, so close, entwined
We drift away to nothing
And no-one will find

Within our arms we sleep deeply
I pull her close to me, near me, into me.
3. I Cannot Be Loved (7:04)
Lover put a knife in my hand
Lay down right there, that's my command
Do as I say in this blood play
Claw at my skin, I'll let you win
Caress your flesh. Burns like fire
Rosey, sweet breath, and your desire

Your skin is all I want to take from you
Your mind is nought unto me,
I'll leave behind

Bound together
The darkest embrace
Bound forever
We will be chaste

I paw at you golden flesh
Golden breast
I sail on your, on your sea
Of ecstasy.

God, I want you. Just be mine
Because you haunt me all the time

Your pain, it talks to me
Your pain, it really talks to me

Your pain, it talks to me and I heed it well
My hands, your neck, they greet each well in a loving hell
This hold we have can't last because it's killing me
Farewell my love. Please walk away and take away my pain.
4. And I Walk With Them (6:37)
A Serpent it came to me
Right before my eyes
I looked to God way above me
He looked down at my lies

I said "oh Lord please help me
I am on my knees"
"Your path is yours" he told me
"Yours to reap"

A mighty wind did pull me
Tore at my face
My flesh is raped at his hand
I am the world's disgrace

The Heaven opened above me
And down Gods tears came
Lashing away at my skin
My stinking, rotten frame

I though I'd fought the demons that roamed above me
I thought I'd slew their blood red hands
Their hearts still beat with all the hatred for me
Their mark still burns into my very soul
And I walk with them.
They're shadowing my soul.
5. Thy Raven Wings (5:22)
In fiery flight we would leave this hall
The Holy house, House of God will fall
To death they go with music and song
But our dread simply must go on

I feel our need to feed goes on
For our greed, watch them bleeding on
This hour's ours, with open arms go on

Crowned with thorns and pain was he
Raised our hands and slew him utterly
Crimson waves of the tears of war
This is what we were put here for

Eden falls, Mercy for life
I hear their calls
Stood and watched them die
Heaven crawls.
Wings burn on high
Beauty falls.
Beg unto me why?

Fold thy raven wings
'Tis our duty, darkness brings
If this day be our last
Our victims await
For they are vast

In fiery death we will crawl away
Content we lived for each and every day
Black and burned with a stench of decay.
6. Love's Intolerable Pain (6:14)
Denial of our shadow side
Will often cause it to rise up
Against us

That he does not need to die
Allows his mind to soar
To fly

What if love's intolerable pain never leaves?
What will your life's mark leave upon this world?
What now, will my dark craft do with your body now?
We walk as Gods together through a fiery dawn
What if you love someone you know you shouldn't love?
What will your dying father's last words to you be?
What now, the painting of young lovers is complete?

What if love's intolerable pain never leaves us?
So we dash our bleeding hearts on the rocks of loneliness?
And cry unto the lords above who turn away in haste?

From the heart
Heart of snow
Comes the ice
It's crushing blow
From the soul
Whose love is sound
Comes the cold
It's frozen ground.
7. One of Beauty's Daughters (5:40)
Your name will walk the years of shame
Your hands, my face, the look, the taste

To gaze how fondly on thy beautiful face
To fold thee in my great arms, my dark embrace

In my arms I comforted her, and she looked up at me
Weep did she and tried to escape.
My mind she did read
I held her face in my hands and winked my eye
Whispering into her ear "now your min"

Her eyes, her cries, my thoughts, she dies
Walk away, she can try, and if she does, she dies.

She lives behind her golden shell
It's glow does bind me to her self
And I will walk the endless miles
To hear her talk and to bask in her smile
And rain it comes, I knew it would
My tears don't run but I wish they would
8. Deeper Down (6:28)
An unfortunate journey
Through a bleak sea of loneliness
I carved through the waves of grief
In a black vastness of self doubt

I have never felt so alone
So pitiful and wretched and low
I'm tried by a terrible wind
The misery and the pains blow

Fill my vast sails of ruin
Steer me toward a bleak end
A horizon of purples and reds
The still waters of my welcome end

The clouds of grey come overhead
A storm will hunt me down
And rip the guts out of my body
That I would surely drown

The unforgiving wind searches
And lashes me like a whip
The self-pity overwhelms me
My heart sinks like a ship

Thrashing out at torment and pain
The maddened sea engulfs me
I let myself be swallowed up
The magnificent weight upon me

Deeper I go, deeper down
Didn't think it could get any blacker
The cold bites, the pressure builds
I think I no longer matter

Can't tell if my eyes are open or closed
The grieving waters swallow
The pain I'm in through my life of sin
The Devil will doubtless follow

Loneliness is agony
For those of you who know
A war of grief and sadness rages
Through mind, body and soul

When lovers die and friendships fade
Whin kin all lie forgotten
The gates of agony spew forth
Your memories, stinking and rotten

So deep now I feel so numb
I'm ravaged by utter loss
The guilt, the grief, the astounding pain
My body, they all will wash

I hope I ne'er return to life
Oh, Christ just let me go
Let death devour my simple soul
Lest my misery grow

I quietly leave. A lonely sight
Relieved of all my guilt
To join a wall of deepest Hell
The Devil himself has built.
9. The Blood, The Wine, The Roses (8:21)
Everyone knows her, knows her name.
Deadly Siren, that's her game
They want to be near her.
Playing her game
Get to know her.
What's her name?
She strides among us with a burning fire.
Her victims endless, piling higher
And I run along with them, the heaving mass, fighting anyone to get past

I want her fire, her burning fire, her dark caress, her red hot kiss
I want desire, her roaring fire, from milk white breast to raven tress
I want her nights, morning light, her endless days, amazing greace

I'm on her trail every single day
Ahead, she glides, I stumble blindly in her wake

I witnessed lovers torn by her.
Teary maidens killing her
You'll never be lovers when she's in town
because in her eyes, we all drown
Broken-hearted, we leap to God, and die like lovers everyone forgot

I tremble when she passes by.
Lord make her mine or let me die
She looked at me.
Her eyes! Her eyes!
They drew me in.
Her sin! Her lies!

I see my final night
Glory, what a sight!
The blood, the wine, the roses
And me all snowy white

Her hands on me, it's ecstasy.
It's Heavenly, it's God I see
I risk a kiss. One kiss
One kiss!
I knew from then my life had died

Hold me now my father
Now my days are done
I would do it all again
Because she was the one

Torment me you fucking bastard!
I'll seek you once I rise
Look behind.
I will slay your worthless blackened soul.
