The Enlightenment of Decay Lyrics

(3)
Submitted by level 서태지
1. Loss (Under the Shadow of a Thousand Sorrows)
Floating Through curtains of velvet darkness
That lead into the depths of memory
Treading upon planes of indirect reality
To gather at the gates of eternity

Where we'll trade our voices for the shadows
That haunt these halls of our passing
And hide them deep within ourselves
To shelter the sorrow of innermost loss

Falling through the withering surfaces
Under the shadow of a thousand sorrows
Drifting upon waves toward uncertain finality
Enshrined in the flames of damnation's rise

Where we'll shed our flesh in blessed heresy
To awaken the spirits of our loss
And hold them deep within ourselves
As we search for the darkness within us all

Suffer wounds of your own disillusion
Cry for sanctity in divine absolution

While day declined their voices could be heard
Their scornful laughter commanding the charge

The thoughts that we caress in our most silent moments
The images reflected in the fractured mirror
Converge into streams flowing toward eternal shores
To wash the blood from the hands of our imagination

Following the carnival of shameless destitution
To pray before the idols of your shattered institutions
Of decadent degradation and ignorant faith
The crumbling towers of divine inspiration
Shall fall into the ruins of obscurity
And entomb your soul for righteous indignations

Under the shadow of a thousand sorrows
Drifting upon waves toward uncertain finality
Enshrined in the flames of damnation's rise

Where we'll shed our flesh in blessed heresy
To awaken the spirits of our loss
And hide them deep within ourselves
As we search for the darkness within our souls

Suffer the wounds of your own disillusion
Cry for sanctity in divine absolution
Discover the fallacy of your ways
Surrender to the enlightenment of decay
2. Whose Streams No Waters Fed
For I have seen through the eyes of the mountains
Spoke with the clouds and summoned forth their source
I've gathered the winds to conquer the oceans
Tore through the skies and destroyed their worth
Destroyed their worth

For I have been in the hollows of the mountains
Soared with the clouds (and) dominated their force

I've fathered the winds that conquered the oceans
And tore through the skies to destroy their worth
To destroy their worth

Infernal rivers that disgorge
Sorrows black, deep in lamentation
The empty spaces that transform
The ethereal into liquid plains

A drone in the sky shouting at the sun
Cursing whose streams no waters fed
A drone in the sky drowning out the sun
Thus wrapped in mists, in midnight obscured

The course these cosmic oceans run
Whose streams no waters fed
3. Of Chaos and Despair
Lost forever on this darkened path
That leads into the deepest depths of misery
Entombed within the walls of this labyrinth of my own creation
To dwell in madness; never to return to the world of reasoning
Reflected in the skies that shatter in terror
Of the coming storms that ride upon the winds of chaos and despair
That breed upon the winds of chaos and despair

In solitude I've found my place and time
Locked in a world of my own design
How I've often tried to clutch the clouds above
Only to fall into the vast unknown

Descend into the bleakest of all thoughts
That spiral down into the abyss of bitter memories
Buried beneath the years of sadness
Of my own creation, to lie in sorrow
Never to return to the world of reasoning
Reflected in the skies that shatter in terror
Of the coming storms that ride upon the winds of chaos and despair
That breed upon the winds of chaos and despair

In darkness I have found my true destiny
To leave behind this world of painful reality
How I've often reached to touch the sky above
Only to feel it fall down upon me

In faded dreams of a time long lost
I rode upon the waves of your pale grace
Flew high above the darkening clouds
To my own world of content and serenity
Far from the reach of sadness and tragedy
Reflected in the skies that shatter in terror
Of the coming storms that ride upon the winds of chaos and despair
That breed upon the winds of chaos and despair

In desperation I have found the will to fall
Into the grave of evening's deep pall
To never crawl amongst the living world
Only to feel the cold ground covering me
