Mirror of Eden Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Solar (6:23)
Mother earth is empty
A blind titan at its natural end
Tearing apart the fabric of all, that has formed
In the arms of an astral slave
Mother earth is failing
A blind prophet spat out by the sea
No intention
No direction
I never said you’d find a saviour in me

As the air
Fills my lungs
I concede that I am soulless
Without direction, no holy protection
To guide me through, these foreign lands
A journey with no natural end
And the sun rains fire, upon my skin
And shines upon the path I must begin

The skies are open
So quench your thirst
Tears of the heavens are falling for you
The skies are open

A fire burns within my chest, I know
My journey lies ahead, although
I cannot see the end
The weight rests heavy on my back

Welcome to the theatre of global damnation
Evisceration of the astral realm
By decree, of those who came before
I bid you
Welcome to hell

The skies are open
So quench your thirst
Tears of the heavens are falling for you
The skies are open
2. Arise (5:54)
They say, you’ll find
A message in the skies
Passed down, through time
Once esoteric a null paradigm
They say, you’ll find
The traces of all life
A message in the skies
Arise

For the forming stars
Burn, ever brighter
Coagulation of the qi in finite stand
Watch the emergence of a system
Higher than you can understand

Perpetual motion
Breaks away
Become this entity
An altered state inclined
Consuming space and time
These pillars arc and wind
Reduce this entropy
Now

Go forth to the light
Occupy this vacuous expanse
Every forming matter
The nature of an aeon found

A start to all
We’ll watch the future unfold
Whilst looking up at the sky
We see the light
Staring down

So savagely born from pillars of stone
We tread the sky alone

Perpetual motion
Breaks away
Become this entity
An altered state inclined
Consuming space and time
These pillars arc and wind
We’re falling down

Rise, pick up the pieces
A cyclic notion into effect
Nihility occupied by the renewal of this higher fusion
Coalesced

So savagely born from pillars of stone
We tread the sky alone
3. Mirror of Eden (6:17)
Bitter be the pilgrim
As he steps into the light
To see what stands before
His land lies in ruin

Pangaea is broken
Barren, a kingdom with an empty crown

Her wretched bones lie forsaken
Flames stretching to the horizon
This is no place for the righteous
Abandon all hope
You who enter here

The beasts are barely alive
I see no pain in their eyes

The path lays overgrown, defiled
With the presence of decay
This is a land devoid of empathy

No life can grow in the desert
Nothing can live through the storm
This land was once though mastered
Until the wind carried scorn

The road that stretches ever onwards will show no remorse
The only shelter to be found, is in our twisted thoughts
No quarter spared for those who fail to hold the line
Exhaustion drives you to despair, as the soul escapes the vines

Eruption and corrosion
Cover and eclipse
Hatred for the creator
Rules with an iron fist
Borders that stood for years
Cast down, immortal fear
Call upon an inner strength
With a new beginning ever drawing near

This Mirror of Eden
In blackened disarray
The end is far from here
So brace yourself and carry on

The earth shakes with a dying breath
Wearing a crown of starlight, she falls

The end is far from here
So brace yourself and fight the storm

The beasts are barely alive
I see no pain in their eyes

The path lays overgrown, defiled
With the presence of decay
This is a place devoid of empathy

No life can grow in the desert
Nothing can live through the storm
This land was once thought mastered
Until the wind carried scorn
4. Iron Skies (7:14)
Arid lands and tainted seas
Directing to where I began
The sun is setting
Leaving shadows in its wake
A lonely star won’t shine forever
Losing myself within the fall
To find relinquish in the moon

Staring down at these lands
Scrutinising judgements
Polarising traces in the sand
Forever I have wished for this road just to end
Questioning not just myself, but everything I’ve come to understand

A lonely star won’t shine forever
Abandoned, not a whisper on the wind to guide you home
And all must fade into never

Upon this judgement
Behold the new decree
A reign of terror
Enshrouding land and sea
They reach out for salvation
But they shall find nothing for me

I met the herd who were trusted with this world
Their lives as savage as the future they uphold
Negligence and strife, the colours of their kingdom
Leaving nothing in their path

I travelled far, denied once of my prophecy
Thrice I have fallen
Thrice I have learned
Thus weaves the loom of fate, around my blistered skin
And yet it ceases to amaze me how the cattle march to death

There’s no hope
For you who cannot see
Beyond the nightmare
Hold onto what you could be
What you could not bear to lose

My sight fails me
Trapped in a desert sea
Always pushing ever on with no sign of relief
Never did I dream that I would fall so hard and keep on walking
Such sweet sorrow
Iron skies

There’s no hope
For you who cannot see
Beyond the nightmare
Hold onto what you could be
What you could not bear to lose

Arid lands and tainted seas directing to where I began
Thrice I have fallen
Thrice I have learned
A lonely star won’t shine forever
The sun is setting, leaving shadows in its wake

A lonely star won’t shine forever
And all must fade into never
5. Clouds Uncovered (1:48)
instrumental
6. Lunar (6:00)
How many years have passed
Wasted under the sun
The time has come to realise what’s become
What is coming undone
Beyond this astral realm
There lies a fragile state of mind

Go, into the night
Distorted, clouds uncovered
Sub-lunar age has come undone
Distorted, colours merging
An eras end

Oh cursed darkness
Deceiver of man
Who can hope to elude
Your phantoms crystalline attack
Fear the unknown
Or light the fire
Illuminate a frail hope

Open your eyes, see what the truth is worth
Stitching the wounds that scar the face of the earth
Feel the wind on your wings
Breath deep and soar
Is this but a dream I have, or a paradigm of life itself

Show me the way, or forever lost in silence we’ll remain

How long have you spent
Straying from the path
The time has come to realise what’s become
Darkness akin with your heart
It’s only getting worse
As darkness falls we stand alone

Open your eyes, see what the truth is worth
Stitching the wounds that scar the face of the earth
Feel the wind on your wings
Breath deep and soar

Open your eyes, see what the truth is worth
Stitching the wounds that scar the face of the earth
Feel the wind on your wings
Breath deep and soar
Is this but a dream I have, or a paradigm of life itself
7. A Distance Eternal Pt.1 (5:01)
Upon this ancient ground
Beneath unhallowed skies
Without a sense of purpose
I’ve come to realise
I have felt it in the air that I breathe
I am a vessel for the world as it sleeps

So, as the truth becomes clear
Immediate recognition of paradise
Lost to the hands of time and winds of change
What ensued is now forgotten
Abandoned machinations of all life
Exist in stasis and await release

Night has fallen
A land once blessed by light
Beyond all recognition
Footsteps upon a tortured plane

I will not kneel

I find a strength born of fate
Though in time all strength must fade away
Into the void and there to remain
Temples decay before a distance eternal

Into the void and there to remain
A spirit in a shell watch it all fade away

I am the phantom
I am the earth
Incarcerated
Bound to this form

Internal struggle takes its toll
Visions of an ascending soul
I see a new future unfold

Purpose rain over me
My tired eyes can see
The spirits have awakened, they’ve come to set me free
We will find our own way
Though in time all strength must fade away
Into the void and there to remain
Temples decay before a distance eternal
8. A Distance Eternal Pt.2 (1:44)
We will find our own way
Though in time all strength must fade away
Into the void and there to remain
Temples decay before a distance eternal

The heart of the earth
Is calling out to me
9. Restless Awakening (6:05)
Buried beneath insatiable avarice for the taste of destruction
Lies, unknowing, the voice of salvation
A wreckage of man beaten down by the wind
The sirens sing their song, but they serenade the stones
Unnatural selection has left only rot in its wake

And like the tides, I would fall
And like the tides, I will rise

The heart of the earth
Is calling out to me, dying to feed
Restless Awakening
Restless carrying on a fading memory

In the eyes of the ignorant masses
The journey continues at a desperate stride
An unlikely saviour for those who stand watching
And waiting upon the deliverance of their demise

Have hope
When all else has failed, and darkness prevails
Be strong, feel alive

When all is said and done, you shall remain alone
Your existence is one not of virtue or vice
You’re merely a saviour for those who do not deserve life

But who are you to judge, as time continues to march
An army of sand, an empire of dust
Wearing away at the walls that you built in disgust
Tear them down

And like the tides, I would fall
And like the tides, I will rise

When all is said and done, you shall remain alone
Your existence is one not of virtue or vice
You’re merely a saviour for those who do not deserve life

The heart of the earth
Is calling out to me, dying to feed
Have hope
When all else has failed and darkness prevails (Restless awakening)
Be strong
Feel alive (Restlessly carrying on a fading memory)

The heart of the earth
Is calling out to me, dying to breathe
Restless into the sea
Restlessly carrying on a fading memory
10. Into Majesty (6:18)
I walk no further
Years lost just to realise
My final purpose, my journeys end
A light shines across my face
And a new sun rises
I see their future lies with me
I see a new future unfold
Bound, to Gaia’s spectre
Such universal reckoning

So this is how it ends
Unravelling under the stars
How rapidly time is spent
Watching the world fall apart
Memories fade, scars shall remain
I saw the world as it burned
Drawing the line, biding my time
Into majesty I shall ascend

I saw the world as it burned
I see a new future unfold
Clarity shines, upon everything
I see the ties between their purpose and mine

Oh sacred mother
Life lost only to reveal
My final struggle, my journeys end
The final phase begins, and a new son rises
My essence races to the sky
I see a new future unfold
Bound, to Gaia’s spectre
I find my place amongst the stars

Lost in perfect turbulence

Celestial power
Issues forth from my hand
Torn relentlessly, I see beneath the falling rain
I am the earth
