To Sail Black Waters Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Winter (9:05)
I am born like frost cast upon the land,
Mother Earth's secrets Bestowed.
I am lord of the frost,
May my servants delight in my frozen blood.

I am the hunter,
In the snow filled lands.
Brother of man and of beast,
Hear my voice among the trees.

Let cloud and snow fill your mind,
Give him your heart in peace.
Soon the magick will stir within,
His soul in darkness keep.
His secret servants he doth send,
To whisper by your bed.
Wake to find his frozen hand,
Descend from eyes of red.

I am white shadow,
The life that lives in death,
I live to die and live again.

Dance 'round the fires mirthfully,
Behold his temple is spirit and flesh.
Find thineself among the storm,
Laughing from deep within
As it pours.

I accept thine gift great father,
Speak to me deep in my sleep.
For I shall carry out thine will,
Every whisper.
Every night.

The wise warrior stand at my feet,
He praises my holy names.
His soul is set free,
Redeem thineself.
Come forth before me,
And howl.
2. Decline (12:46)
Black is this soul unbound,
Through the lust for light.
Darkness I have found,
I am given new life.
Black wings,
For soaring moon filled
Castle shadowed night.

For the light I'm reaching,
Yet cast away I am in sin.
Let the moon shine down upon me,
Alone and lifeless within

Here I was to die.
The darkened spirit by my bedside,
A demon I have become,
Inside.

A woman calls my name,
Into the forest I look.
Reveal to me a white light,
This is nothing but a dream.
I wake in chains again.
Into a mirror I see,
A man with no reflection and nothing to behold
Nothing to behold
Nothing to see
Nothing to see

Here I was to die.
The darkened spirit by my bedside,
A demon I have become,
Inside.

A strange vision falls upon my eyes,
A terrible thing with horrible light.
They do not know,
And cannot tell.
3. Sunrise (7:43)
By the moon howling,
Lies a man transformed,
By the deepest primal rage.
Cursed to roam the night,
A man in wolf shape.
Wishing for the sunrise,
Deep inside.

Moon red like blood,
Upon the sea.
Dear lord, let me rest
Let me see.

My eyes raise up to view a silent moon,
Then blood begins to toil rage doth vaguely bloom.
A sudden hate becomes my only sense for breath,
As I hunger more and more for tasting living flesh.

In the country side,
By the grave stones and whispering woods.
Sings a voice deep in the trees,
A Witch's song,
Calling out to my heart.
Bestowing blessing to seize me from the dark.

A secret horror I must bare,
Until it ends the full moon glare.
A sudden hate becomes,
My only sense for breath.
As I hunger more and more for,
Tasting living flesh.

As they run and they scurry,
Across the village I sight,
A witch's humble gaze.
The one who wields the moonlight,
The sun she doth murder.
To bring the wolves into men,
And the men into night.
Turning angels into flies,
By the wave of her hand.
My blood doth she command.
Joined with the moonlight,
And the forest by night.
4. Black Waters (11:22)
Death smiles at us all,
I smile back.
Fear doth hold my heart,
Not in this life or the next.

For prepared is my soul for this life to end,
To sail black waters to the resting plane.
So bring me the death that I desire ask,
God is within not apart,
That which is found within thine heart.

This is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Rise.
Forth.
Rise.
Within.

Sanctify this wretched life,
By fire, air, earth, and ice.

Rise.
Forth.
Rise.
Within.

For prepared is my soul for this life to end,
To sail black waters to the resting plane.
So bring me the death that I desire ask,
God is within not apart,
That which is found within thine heart.

The sun shall set upon thine eyes,
As the soil so slowly take thine breath.
Ye shall know the eternity of light,
For there after death is another life.

Strange words fill my view,
Now on the other side.
Shapes and sights unseen to me before,
Upon my spoiled mind.
Curiosity takes me to the dark house,
Where the dead become dead,
And the soul becomes foul (foul).
A realm of secrets,
Between the worlds of light.
Where they gather the ancient creatures
Of the night,
And speak of things I cannot comprehend.
Casting pearls of black into confusing holes.
(Then they look upon me with eyes I cannot fight)
(Less twisted 'round what should not be within)
They speak to me and say ye shall remain here within.
They say ye shall remain because you lived in sin.

(I love the way you move inside of me)
(Lovely stranger, let go of my chest)

Rise.
Forth.
Rise.
Within.

The sun shall set upon thine eyes,
As the soil so slowly take thine breath.
Ye shall know the eternity of light,
For there after death is another life.
