Emergence Lyrics

(5)
Submitted by level
1. I Am the Abyss (8:50) (Instrumental)
2. Emergence (6:27)
Entrapped between matter and chaos
Where the future and past are as one
In my dreams I have seen a reflection
Of the unworld that is to become
I sought knowledge inside this arcanum
And perhaps I have travelled too far
For a vision so bitter and horrid
Now forever my soul enscars

Relieved from the Shell of Unessence
I awoke in a barren scape
Engulfed by the desperate struggle
Of a world becoming a grave
I wandered up a dreaded hill
What I saw there my heart afroze
A weeping tree as black as ash
Where humongous stormclouds rose

I stared at the sorrowful creature
Feeling what it had seen and known
Now at the end of all creation
Tears of blood from its branches flow
A figure in gloom then appeared to me
Underneath him the ones that I loved
And with inhumane voice he declared to me
That my life was paid through their blood

Then I faced the gaping infinity
As a choir of agonal cries
Overwhelmed me with purest cacophony
And my soul locked in flesh again was
Now I stride towards ashen horizons
As I breathe the undoing of life
Unfolding my destination
In a world where no hope lies

Lyrics by Nimblkorg
3. Edin in Ashes (6:19)
Bitter is the taste of my contempt for those
protecting their dreamscape; as such becoming foe
of humanity and reason; for truth they can't endure
Reality denied; like sick that fear the cure

I paint myself with the blood of life
so cruelly culled by the hands of Adam
Armed with hate and malice; for millennia to come
and with the vengeance of that
which will be coldly laid to waste without regrets

I can no longer sit back and watch
whilst this abomination takes its course

Unknowing was our kind, when he was made to be
a demon in holy skin, whose light has blinded ever since
and inspired foolishness for generations to come and last

Life just runs its course; no entity to blame
No swarm of spiteful locusts, to plunder in his holy name
I've seen both past and future; the rape of life to be
So I will do what must be done; revealed to me

Visions of mass destruction
amassing strength within my soul
A cage to hold the fury
of the grim works beyond my grasp
I can see their temple of Lies
appearing in front of me
An empire of wrath and exile
which was never supposed to be

The glorious destruction of both religion and mankind...

Edin lifeless in ashes lies

Then I found myself in a courtyard
A thousand eyes accusing me
To rally the course of the future and more
for countless new horrors the way made free

There is no action without consequence

As I freed myself from the clutches of guilt
One cannot change what has been done
The lesson learned alas my friends
the battle’s never, ever, truly won!

A man must fall to rise again.

Lyrics by Skirge
4. This World Shall Fall (3:28)
Slowly yet steadily
the curtain for mankind falls
Like chariots, unmanned, we ride
straight towards the chasm

(And) just as sure, as the wind blows
our great walls will crumble
We are drawn like poison from a wound
now only emptiness remains

We have abandoned; cast our rights away
We have run our course
The final chapter; is closing near
as vultures circle to feed

Like chariots, unmanned, we ride
straight towards the chasm

This world shall fall!

Lyrics by Skirge
5. Squandered Paradise (4:24)
Humankind has squandered the gifts that Mother gave
A world of wealth and plenty; led to an early grave
And paths to so-called 'progress' with blood of millions paved

Utopia soon out of reach
as swords grew mightier than the plough
Such promise of superiority
tell me - where are we now?

Bloodletting a planet and culling our own lives
Caught in the wake of our self-destruction

Hail the glorious humankind – Hail!
hail the splendour of our kind!

Hail the glorious mankind!

Lack of understanding; about responsibility
The kind we are so eager to avoid
Evermanipulating - the bringers of war and woe
A travesty within the cosmic scale

Our legacy is fraught with death
Battle-ridden and paid for in blood
True bringers of violence and flame

A tyranny of intellect; a vile manifestation
An error of the universe; harbingers of damnation
As history repeats itself time upon time
and still we fail to learn

Unworthy of the air we breathe; unworthy of our pride
unworthy of our power; so gleefully abused
Our kind stands here accused; of squandering it all
We've been weighed; and swiftly found unworthy
Weighed and found unworthy; of it all

Evermanipulating - the bringers of war and woe
A travesty within the cosmic scale
Squandered paradise...

Lyrics by Skirge
6. Eternal Forest (4:22) (Instrumental)
7. The Cosmic Tide (6:37) (Instrumental)
8. A New Dawn (6:37)
We are men of a thousand faces
of the motionless mask
underneath which a battle is raging
and danger lies in losing grasp

We must burn our boats; to leave behind
the shores of our damnable past
as we take a deep breath; through the fog
that used to suffocate

What's done is done; the dice were cast
and the only path before us lies
striding towards the riches of a new dawn

But before we can relinquish
the strangleholds of the past
we must one last time revisit
Those depths, where we hardly dare go

Enter the mind!
a bottomless pit of inspiration
a bottomless pit of sorrow as well
One must watch his steps
not to fall in self-deception

(Where) we once gave in
To endless waves of melancholy
The weight of the world
and the torment of troubled souls

There is no turning back now; to what once was
As hardship transformed; the path has been forged
Pain led to knowledge and insight

So revel while you can; in the dusk of the past
as a new dawn; grand; rejuvenous
emerges through our hands
Revel ye pity humans; in the dusk of the past
as a new dawn emerges; emerges
through our hands

Therein lies hope; therein lies strength
built on the ashes of the old world
Therein lies life; therein lies meaning; therein lies strength
as the sun of a new dawn engulfs the skies
