Absence Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. The End of the Century (4:53)
I take a deep dive
Plunge into downward spiral
I am after virtue
Once again, after virtue still alive

Shades of existence
can't quench my thirst, my burning thirst
The Worst pain will never,
ever vanish from this insane world

Will, power and pride
Kill my frailty inside
Silence futile words
Darken fearful eyes

I choose my side, yield myself to the beast
Or to immortality, nihil, vancancy

The world is declining, crumbling down to the ground
Wormwood delusions torment me in the end of the century
The world is declining, sinking low below the edge
Breeding offspring of lunacy in the end of the century

I tear apart the canvas
The final triumph of my creation
The ecstasy of decay
I am wriggling on the filthy floor

Trance of addiction
I must obey my muse, my frantic muse
They abuse my weakness
The make me shed my soul once more

Everything is losing away it's meaning here
Everything is fading away like you and me
Just burn out, just die down, slip off yourself
Fall of the West, fall of this unearned dignity
2. Everlasting Ward (4:34)
A real of the dark hemisphere
They signed us here for life
Enchained us, tore away our pride
No will to resist, no will to exist

Experimenting with these newly born
A little game with the insane
Rolling back the time for centuries
Make us live and die like our fathers

Harvest the damned, reap the bleak
Bring here for us to bear
Enchanted simplicity
For a mind, so blind, so open to find

This mere bliss, sheer emotion
They call this fate
Sincere, unreal devotion
Controls this mind
Blanks out this anger

Inner peace, enchains me
Entities fall off from the timeline
Burning will, storms there still, suffocated thrill
Subconscious ravishment
3. The First Drop (3:46)
First drop, first untied knot
Long lost time unveiling its lies
Waiting for inevitable
Only rise to fall
When these days are like yesterdays
I'm too proud to feel the same
Welcome here where it all ends
My hopes, my fears, my dreams

So silent after rain, so calm the dawn
The day so pale, I'll pray for mercy for the last time

There is

Hell for me to feel, for me to hear
Hell for me to kneel, for me to sear

In the eye of the blind for the last time
All the words of the numb to hear
Glimpses of past too shallow to last
These fragments too hollow to feel

To hear, to feel, to sear

Last drop, last untied knot
Time to unleash all demons inside
Waiting here for the last lines
I'll close my eyes
4. Slain Memories (4:42)
He came by the shore
From dark, so sick so frail
In gloom of his eyes
The fear he couldn't restrain

I'll try to capture the feeling
I'm feeling inside
I won't hide it
I'm second to none

I want to enter my pain
My slain memories
My final atrocity
I'm second to none

As time has passed by
No trust, no place for relief
I will adopt my fate
My desire was more than this

Falling into infinity
This is, who I, this is who I am

Washed by the waves
Embraced by the infinite sea
Nevermore, the darkest deed
For the one once beside me
5. A Day to Depart (4:03)
This voice, it spake
Tempted me to keep awake
Thus I realized
When there is no truth, there are no lies
You're here, so sincere
To fathom the deepest fear
Misguide, this life
Away from truth, away from its line

Hey, away
Today's less painful than tomorrow here
Hey hey, this way
These words won't carry out a promise here

This voice, now gone
My part here is finally done
Now I do realize
There was no truth, there were no lies
This greed to breathe
The will I am longing to wreathe
No words, no lies
All foul will last, all beautiful dies

A dream, a nightmare
A spasm of fleeting joy
So sincere, enchanting
A spasm of tempting void

Awaken, words taken
All hollow, so shallow
These words have no meaning
These words carry out no truth here
6. Prey of the Tempter (4:39)
Woes of mankind, too dark to desire
Breathe the fumes of death and decay
It all depends on when everything ends

Enter this place
Enter disgrace
Enter this void, this forgotten soil
No one will ever leave

Tempts me, tempts you, chains us deep inside
Like one of our kin
Throw your hope to the flames that are burning bright
Be damned within
Come dwell where forgotten redeem their price
Slaves so sickening
Step in, to an endless pyre
Our blood becomes thin

Hark at old man, his appealing words
For there lies the truth forevermore
Poisonous, full of deceit
He will cloud the reason of us all

Promised myself, deceived myself
I am prey of the Tempter
Waiting in this ancient inn, in this very room
I am prey of the Tempter
7. Here We Lie (4:30)
Morning bleeds me pale
Words feel so numb
I'm frozen in a place of time
I'm stuck to where I left

A modest wish has come true
A thought I never meant
For a light that was so bright
The night sets forever

Turn your face towards the one that's deranged
Tell me the truth, I'm not here
For a light that was so bright
The night sets forever

So jaded, I am here
And again, filled with grief
For a light that was so bright
The night sets forever

In my chamber of liquid dreams
The one I feel, the one I beseech
Hunt for life for a non-divine
The anguish leads to the world I entreat

Here we lie in silent breeze
In this vault it makes me feel
How my world is shred by grief
How this thing just should not be
8. All Veiled (5:40)
All veiled in same silence
All wonders in same equation
Forever disequilibrium holds
The pulse of our existence will fade

Illusions over matter and mind
A dream is a dream, no more
Straight lines and circles of time
Ignore other forms of continuum

Truth was never more than a one view of the world
Lies, history's scars are too deep

Lost souls of millions I bear
Lost thoughts of aeons I hear
More questions than there were answers
Our paths cross on an unknown shore

All veiled in same silence
All wonders in same equation
Where past, present and future sleep
These fallacies will never die

I believe what I see
I see what I choose to believe
Where answers I seek
Questions are hidden from me
I'm an illusion of my past
An illusion of mine is my future
The end is the end
The end is where I begin
9. The Dream and the Escape (4:42)
My heart devours the emptiness
This lonely need from deep within
To breach through these decadent dreams
My heart yearns for a step astray
For an escape, perfect deceive
To break through these elegant needs

I am crawling before thy grace
Leave me to die alone
I am cringing before thy tears
Leave me to thrive in pain

This fateful essence
All life's adornments
Too distant from this realm
Absent from this world

So let us stray
Enter dream, escape
Lull ourselves into oblivion
And let us wait
For a serene day
Lead ourselves into delirium

I deny this fateful coil forevermore
10. The Great Anonymous Doom (5:22)
I've waited for this night in shame
They say, it's the grace
of the great anonymous doom
Don't help me, I'm not falling yet
For woe, I won't forego
the moment of great anonymous doom

Still awake, it may take all day
So silent and slow, like infinite flow
The fuel of great anonymous doom

Not for me a wish
For hope or for mirth
I long to be tied in a coil of rebirth
Absent and pale
In black-eyed night
I'd hate to be wrapped in a veil of delight

Once I leave
In graceful flames, I long to be burned
Once all leave
Once when I leave, I never return

In a dream that flies over the darkest lullabies
This was my fate, a wish to sedate
in presence of great anonymous doom
My wish, was to be just like this
A dark distant shade that lingers, delays
in coming of great anonymous doom
