The Pale Haunt Departure Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Pale Haunt Departure (5:44)
Born upon angelic dirt
we crawl from filth to rise
Speak my name for the sake of life
For this creed will slowly turn

Light escapes this shell of mine
The pale haunt departure
A dying wish to rise again
And leave behind a scarecrows fate

Only those who have suffered long
Can find the light within the shadows
A first hand trial of mislead hope
For this is the day of our wake

Light escapes this shell of mine
The pale haunt departure
A dying wish to rise again
And leave behind a scarecrows fate

So I rise above to look below
and see the shedding coil
The ascension process to reunite
my passion for life through pain

Your trust in faith

Light escapes this shell of mine
The pale haunt departure
A dying wish to rise again
And leave behind a scarecrows fate
2. Swallowed By the Moon (5:57)
I'm sorry you will never know me,
But know I always loved you.

Will you remember when I kept you safe?
Will you remember when I made you smile?
Once again the daylight fades, and I'm swallowed by the moon
Will tomorrow bring a new day of hope?
Will this experience fill you with rage?

The enemy time, knocks at my home
I can no longer hide
Please forgive me, I never meant to leave
But know that I had you as my final thought

Will you remember when I held you tight?
Will you remember the sound of my voice?
Once again the daylight fades, and I'm swallowed by the moon
Will this experience scar your fragile mind?
Will you remember when we would both laugh?

Memories is all that you have
And I'm sorry I failed you in life
I wanted more for you then I could provide
Be strong and make your mother proud

Don't cry... The tears in your eyes
My time... To say my goodbyes
Heaven waits... My soul to arise
Torture, torture... My pain finally dies

Will you remember that I tried my best?
Will you remember the father I was?
Once again the daylight fades, and I'm swallowed by the moon
Will you look back and smile for me?
Will you remember me when I have gone?

Memories is all that you have
And I'm sorry I failed you in life
I wanted more for you then I could provide
Be strong and make your mother proud
3. Autumn Reflection (6:06)
I remember yesterday
The rain fell to the earth
For I dream of your arrival
And color my dark world with faith

Knowing you would be the strong one
To keep my focus in close view

I thank the heavens above
For the angel beside me today
The guardian of my sanity
The one who will save my soul
If I ever doubt the faith I hold
I only need one smile from you
And an autumn reflection
will deliver me to your arms

Someday you will understand
How much you mean to me
for every day that passes me by
I long for the person you will become

I thank the heavens above
For the angel beside me today
The guardian of my sanity
The one who will save my soul
If I ever doubt the faith I hold
I only need one smile from you
And an autumn reflection
will deliver me to your arms

I am stronger now
Since you came into my life
With a thought of your smile
I remember yesterday
4. Dark World Burden (6:09)
It's all so clear to me now
A fraction of the man I used to be
For every breath I take draws in the fear
Only I know that the worst is yet to come

I live in a dark world, where no light shines through
I carry this burden with every step I take
Thrust myself into a new days end
And focus on the hour glass, to help pass the time

Day to day I push myself on
My facade can fool the strongest mind
And my loved ones can only watch from afar
A single mirror to view the void

Tragic yesterdays, and unseen futures sleep
Footprints in the blood from my wounded heart
My dark world is where I call home
Until the day comes, and the light calls my name

My arcane cell is covered in resent
I never asked for any of this
I follow the path which leads me to nothing
Searching for my smile I lost long ago

I stand alone in the company of none
Cheated by reality, philosopher of the gray
A brave inner child stands strong in refuse
A treasure of impurity will find a way to breed
5. In the Absence of Grace (8:09)
Heaven is so far away from this Hell, Carried by the wings of shadows pain
Why did you turn your back, And leave me without your grace
Fallen so far away from the light, Courage will no longer be by my side
I stand here all alone, Waiting for you to see my need

I'll give my life for you, You'll see the fallen man

Heaven is so far away from this Hell, Carried by the wings of shadows pain
Why did you turn your back, And leave me without your grace
Fallen so far away from the light, Courage will no longer be by my side
I stand here all alone, Waiting for you to see my need

I'll give my life for you, You'll see the fallen man

I had trust in you, no more lies, I end this now, and walk away
So pathetic it's come to this, If you only could see my side
I live with this every day, and the struggle overwhelms me

For the loveless, And for my wake

Only when I close my eyes, And the day draws to an end
Thoughts of you stronger then me, increase my faith in hate

For the child, And for my heart

Only when I close my eyes, And the day draws to an end
Thoughts of you stronger then me, Increase my faith in hate

Always dreaming of better days, Since cast out from your sight
I'll live with the life I lead, And smile that you're no more

Why did you turn your back, And leave me without your grace
Fallen so far away from the light, Courage will no longer be by my side
I stand here all alone, Waiting for you to see my need

I'll give my life for you, You'll see the fallen man
I'll give my life for you, You'll see the fallen man
6. The Dead Leaf Echo (7:30)
Since the day I let you believe, that a grand life I would provide
I am haunted by the failure you see before you, consuming the echo
To travel the road of our dreams, with my back against the wall

All I can do, is look the other way, and pretend that your face held a
smile.
Not to see your sullen eyes, staring past my soul, into the darkness of
night.
I feel I've failed you, when we both know, I never had the chance, to say
hello.

Far away from your warmth I fade
Silently, I bid you farewell, and wallow in the moment

So very small, this distance between us, to travel so long, and gain no
ground
The very face I see in the mirror, knows the truth behind the lies
For my trust, I hear the dead leaf echo, and the answer awaits us on the
other side

Far away from your warmth I fade
Silently, I bid you farewell, and wallow in the moment

Looking back to the days when we were poor, and all we had was each other
You looked so sad, and almost ashamed to have me at your side

In circles spins my mind, and the vertigo makes me sick

All I can do, is look the other way, and pretend that your face held a
smile.
Not to see your sullen eyes, staring past my soul, into the darkness of
night.
I feel I've failed you, when we both know, I never had the chance, to say
hello.
7. Through a Child's Eyes (5:32)
I once had a vision
the beauty of two graced the sky
It left me with nothing but hurt
For I knew this couldn't be true

Looking back through a childs eyes
I have been betrayed by time
Now I dream with a sense of pride
And I grieve the shame of mankind

I once was left behind
All the promises and empty words
Forced me to walk upon the earth
Alone in the shadow of man

Looking back through a childs eyes
I have been betrayed by time
Now I dream with a sense of pride
I grieve the shame of mankind

I once had a vision
The fall of man before its time
Again I knew with innocent eyes
You should have saved us all

Looking back through a childs eyes
I have been betrayed by time
Now I dream with a sense of pride
I grieve the shame of mankind
8. Collapse of the Falling Throe (6:36)
I gaze the beauty with sinful eyes
I dream of the fallen embrace
Rest before me, whisper my name
And I'll break the spine of your love

Squalor brings the insects
That feast upon the filth
Only now you witness
Collapse of the falling throe

Come to me, with arms outstretched
Sweet tears that kiss your face
When the arms of hate are holding on
I'll take what should be mine

A love for you consumes the heart
This cruelty will not be for nothing
For you will be ruled by an iron hand
And somewhere the master shows his face

A grand design of vented wealth
Sail on wings of golden pride
A blindness that will free your mind
To carry the seed for the years ahead

Squalor brings the insects
That feast upon the filth
Only now you witness
Collapse of the falling throe

Amidst pure violent emotion
The eyes tell the story of betrayal
Buried deep within the womb
My reason to be scalded by your sins

My ignorance to be judged
A sworn voice to tell me the lies
The mask will be raised to reveal truth
And the sun will no longer shine

Blood for blood, you will be mine
Through the pain I will rise
Driven by this longing desire
To be the one who loves you forever
