Epitaph Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Stabwound (2:48)
(Leadfill: Suicmez)

Invisible blades penetrate
Whereas stabwounds are not detectable.

Stabwound

The blade that stabs a back
Unsuspecting, forms the symbolic...

Stabwound

(Leadfill: Suicmez)
(Solo: Muenzner)

There is no shield to protect from
Attacks led by the ones one used to trust.

Stabwound

The blade that stabs a back,
Unsuspecting, forms the symbolic...

Stabwound
2. The Stillborn One (4:24)
A life free of guilt exists when
The eye fights daylight yet unseen.
A book with not a page written
Means hope yet sometimes to be

(The) Stillborn One. Born Dead.
(The) Stillborn One. Dead.

When dawn and sunset coincide,
The essence of a day is non-existent,
Lifeless...

Deyhdrated soils may not recover
From the drought they might be plagued with,
Prepare to be...

...The Stillborn One...
...The Stillborn One...

When dawn and sunset coincide,
The essence of a day is non-existent,
Lifeless...

Dehydrated soils may not recover
From the drought they might be plagued with,
Prepare to be...

(Solos: Suicmez / Muenzner)
3. Ignominious & Pale (4:01)
If it is to be only
an element of a whole,
To hide behind others
And form the eclipse of mind.
Ignominious and pale.

If it were to one
having nothing to tell,
This would equal
A state of being the one,
Ignominious and pale.

Fallen in the abyss of indignity,
Doubt does not exist
or come into being. Pale...

Incarceration of personality
Is the sad inception of self-denial..
The one that denies the inner self
Flees into deception.

(Solo: Suicmez)

Incarceration of personality
Is the sad inception of self-denial
4. Diminished to Be (4:59)
Surrounded by darkness and cold
The mind in pain grabs for hold.

Diminished, to be diminished.

The missing link in the chain
Of thoughts in now forever gone.

Diminished, to be diminished.

The beast will be wise, feast: eye for an eye.

(Solo: Suicmez)

The beast will be wise, feast: eye for an eye.

Surrounded by darkness and cold
The mind is now forever gone.

Diminished, to be diminished.
5. Epitaph (4:15)
Leaves fall in the autumn
Of lives that appear
To be worthless to some,
Utmost ignorant.

Expectations shift in the eye
of the beholder... behold

Tears drop from the eye
Of lives paled
As jealousy fools
A mind distorted

Expectations shift in the eye
Of the beholder... behold'

One wishes existence
To be of fulfillment,
But leaves bend to the will
Of winds blowing

To foresee the end of a soul... Epitaph

Claim to foresee
The end of a soul.
Prematue Epitaph.

(Solo: Muenzner)

To foresee the end
Of a soul... Epitaph
6. Only Ash Remains (4:11)
Fear is never gone from your soul
That saw humiliation.
Being prey to the blackest of demons,
Paralyzed you fail.

Fallen beneath
The mark of dignity,
You fail.

(A) demon passed on from one
To the next infiltrates
A mind innocent and pure;
Planting the seed to possess
Another soul that is doomed to fail.

Only Ash Remains

(Solos: Muenzner/ Suicmez/ Muenzner/ Suicmez)

(A) demon passed on from one
To the next infiltrates
A mind innocent and pure;
Being prey to the blackest
Of demons, paralyzed they fail.

Fallen beneath
The mark of dignity,
They fail.

Only Ash Remains
7. Seven (3:42)
Distracting from
Your deficiencies
While you point at others.
(Once) enlightened
You judge and execute.

To be the only one
To discover the seven,
(To) toss open and pass
The gates to heaven.

(Solo: Muenzner)
8. Symbiotic in Theory (4:36)
Unable to move from a point of view,
Driven by reasons as old as time itself.

Symbiotic In Theory

In order for a life to be
Commanded it must be owned.

Symbiotic In Theory

Gravity forces water
To flow downhill,
A will is not given.

Inferior or superior,
Will is that which decides.

Gravity forces water
To flow downhill,
A will is not given.

To give and take, to be...

Symbiotic In Theory

(Solos: Muenzner/ Suicmez)
