Morningrise Lyrics

Submitted by level Zyklus
1. Advent (13:45)
It was all true
A parlour strode,
And the night sets forever
I stray in the quiet cold

And you gird me when I dare to listen
Elastic meadow, endless arms of sorrow
Lips try to form "because"
Trying to adapt to the wilderness

Where even foes close their eyes and leave
We are inside the glade
Every now and then I wipe the dust aside
To remember

How I drape my face with my bare hands
The same that brought me here
But you were beyond all help
The folded message that wept my name

Shadows skulk at my coming
We survey the slopes
In search for words to write the missing page
The tainted dogma

Time grows short
As the piper plays his tune
We are almost there
You are beyond all help

Dancing into the void
We are almost there
2. The Night and the Silent Water (10:58)
And so you left us
Jaded and gaunt, some September
Wilted with the seasons
But hidden inside the delusion

I saw your eyes, somewhere
Devoid of death
The aura poises amidst (the storm)
In solid tears I linger

A parlour glade, moonlit sorrow
Lonely resting pools
Relics of the moon dogged lake
Whisper: "All your words are misgiven"

Am I like them?
Those who mourn and turn away
Those who would give anything
To see you again

If only for another second
Your face was, like the photograph
Painted white
We did not speak very often about it

What does it matter now?
Cloak of autumn shroud
I gaze, dim ricochet of stars
I reckon it is time for me to leave

You sleep in the light
Yet the night and the silent water
Still so dark...
3. Nectar (10:09)
I arose from the lullaby
Enduring yet another tale
You tempt me again
With your embrace, so tainted

Within the night you beckon
Cursing me with every glance
Bring me through
Carry my empty shadow

And guide me inside your warped labyrinth
To the well of sin
I swear I will always love you
Leave me speechless

Release my yearning
The soul I walk is clad with light
Drifting moons thrust me with their rays
And I fall inside

I lament this heritance
Cannot bid farewell
The pale face...
You went as far as you could

And from that moment
I witnessed your beauty, felt your death
Mine is yours, mine is yours
In the wake of dawn

The mist of morning linger before it leaves
Invisible eyes, red reflection
It is you
Smiling in the midst of the moor
4. Black Rose Immortal (20:14)
In the name of desperation
I call your name
A lamentation I sigh
Again and again

Spiritual eclipse
The gateways are closed for me to seek
The night...
A veil of stars, watching

My shadow is born from light
The light of the eye, in darkness
Over troubled waters memories soar
Endlessly searching night and day

The moonlight caresses a lonely hill
With the calmness of a whisper
I wear a naked soul
A blank face in the streaming water

It is cold in here
Frost scar my coat with dust
Eyes attach to your mute portrait
We spoke only through thoughts

Together we gazed, awaited
Hours brought thirst and the rising sun
Sunbirds leave their dark recesses
Shadows glid the archways

Do not turn your face towards me
Confronting me with my loneliness
You are in a forest unknown
The secret orchard

And your voice is vast and achromatic
But still so precious
Lullaby of the crescent moon took you
Mesmerized its kaleidoscopic face

Granted you a hollow stare
Another soul within the divine herd
I have kept it
The awakenth symbol

Hidden inside the golden shrine
Until we rejoice in the meadow
Of the end
When we both walk the shadows

It will set ablaze and vanish
Black rose immortalI
it's getting dark again
Dusk shuffles across the fields

The evening trees moan as if they knew
At night I always dream of you
5. To Bid You Farewell (10:56)
I am awaiting the sunrise
Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
Once it came you lied
Embracing us over autumn's proud treetops

I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
Your voice I cannot hear
As I am falling again

Devotion eludes
And in sadness I lumber
In my own ashes I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered: "I know..."

We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?
Why can't you see that I try
When every tear I shed is for you?
