Through the Darkest Hour Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Falling (4:07)
"I walk in the sands of Eden
Where the blue pyramids sleep
I close the world behind me
For my future soul to keep

longer than I want to know them
Spawning dirges fill my veins
A ritual reaction
I drop the face and play the game
I growl at familiar strangers
The sands are needles there
The dust will crawl in anguish
Like the bones inside my lair

[CHORUS]
Move You fall And we die

Move into the circle
You fall on your knees
And we die here waiting
You fall on your knees

Won't somebody tell me why
Somebody please show me where
I lost that dream sensation
In this bitter midnight air
We melt inside of centuries
Awaiting new arrivals
Dressing in lost shadows
like costumes for the dying"

[This is the dark side of drugs and black magic, an appropriate addition to the Darkest Hour.-Lyle]
2. Haunting the Obscure (5:32)
"Emerald figures shining in darkness
Forty souls are locked in stone
A thousand eyes open to see
The wolves of ruin devouring me
Dying hearts of unkown voices
leave my hope under fallen stars
Their beating echoes only pain
Their blood red lips call out my name

Specters of somber sullen face
Piercing pale dry light of fire
Mirror's like silver maryrs
Falling from the sky
The clouds that line the bed of sleep
Pound with thunder underneath
My tired eyes that strain to see
All that reigns inside of me

[CHORUS]
Haunting the solace
Of the sleeping world
The darkness falls like lead

Haunting the Obscure...

Specters of a somber sullen face
Piercing pale dry light of fire
Voyeurs in my hour of darkness
When is it that they will rest
Like kings they come in deepest night
A crown of thorns for lack of sight
To rule with voices cast in lead
Echoing forever in my head"

[Nightmares.-Lyle]
3. The 8th Day: Mourning (6:07)
"Draw the curtains
It's time to sleep
Everything is not as it seems
Silent hands of winter winds
Are drawing near...
Fold the tension slowly
Wait beneath the tear

The tarnished gold
Through the window pain
Lies dead upon the floor
While unseen eyes
Crouch low behind
The walls so thin...
The pious curse the holy
So evening curse the day

[CHORUS]
And on the 8Th day...
I should have known its name
years consume the hours
Turning black to gray

Light the fire
My dreamer's son
You are the only one
To walk alone
In this desperate maze
Whose price has just begun

Drowning lies
In bottles of time
Shipwrecked for no one to see
Reaching as far
To other worlds
Besieged by numbered days
Besieged by numbered days..."

[After we receive the gift of life we inevitably grow old, giving birth to new]
[life in a desperate attempt to preserve some part of ourselves for]
[eternity.-Lyle]
4. The 9th Day: Awakening (5:03)
"The day has dawned
But not the light
Clouds like black ink
Spill through the sky
I feel an anger Pulsing through my veins
All injustice
Driving me insane

Another novice dark soul
Crawls into sight
Twilight hands of murder
Carve faces in the light
Distant new worlds
Whispers of their names
Stand up for battle
Time to make a change

No tomorrow...

[CHORUS]
Strombringer hear me
Down for days
The rain will end
Strombringer hear me
Down for days
Free again

Blind lead the blind
Devoid of truth
Disharmony of madness
An orchestra of doom
Can't believe you let them
Tell you what to be
you've locked away tomorrow
and given up the key"
5. Pain (7:06)
"I've seen the pain before
Teardrops in their eyes
Others that we've torn
To take away their pride
I've felt the pain before
Tearing skin and bone
To evil we conform
Weakness we have known

[CHORUS]
Feel the Pain

I've heard the pain before
Another hollow tie
To escape the cold
Whisperer of good-bye

I've held the pain before
The agony en masse
Melting arms to mourn
The beauty of the past

When I see the darkness below me
I hear the weeping of the damned
My spirit flies from the shadows
Into the forest that we share
Never shall the winds betray me
Only you will know me as I am
I turn from the eyes of winter
And cast away the burden that I bear...
I've seen the pain before circling our laughs
Like vultures whom we scorn
In the vengeance of our wrath
But somewhere in the black
Crystal hearts adorn
The wings of yeaterday
So I can be reborn"
6. Pawns Of Anger (6:36)
"Distant faces
Cold dark eyes
Another lonely place to hide
False intentions
Vague disguise
The veil of fear you stand behind

Forbidden fruit
Frozen time
Blind ambitions draws your line
Awaken
Arise
Or never break these ties

Deception lingers like pain
you always harvest the lies
you make believe

[CHORUS]
Another lie from the pawns of anger
Midnight sons of death
They ring the bells of darkness
Breath the burning air...
so go ahead and kneel or bow
I will choses to stand
Until the end
Until the end...

There's blood on the walls
A mask in the hall
A killer in your midst
Pray he does not wake
Before the dawn"

["If you listen to fools-the mob rules." Ronnie James Dio 1981 -Lyle]
7. Eternal (Dreams Part II) (7:51)
Somewhere a shadow I shall be
Existing inside eternity
Finding there my every move

A world without a need for time
Forever I walk where others hide
A burning thirst I feel inside
Strike me down-my soul to fly

[CHORUS]
Eternal
The infinite wasteland
Immortality's great demand

Alone in desperate salvation
A vision in ghostly dreams
Unknown to light or darkness
I possess the void in between

Can memories replace my existence
Does it matter in the end?
Which eternal path we've taken
Be it truth, deception, pain or fear"

[This song is part II of the "Dreams" trilogy. It explores the darker side of]
[immortality and even asks whether it is ultimately desirable. To live forever is]
[to have no hopes or dreams, nothing more to be gained, only endless]
[existance....-Lyle]
8. Perfect Insanity (6:15)
"Sinister formations
Laughing in my head
The thorn of your existence
Drives me to the edge

Vile sweet serpent
Slither trance begin
Such a pitiful submission
Seduction fighting sin

[CHORUS]
Perfect insanity

Into oblivion
Into oblivion...

Don't blame me
For all that's happened
I love it where I am
Beside this crimson lamplight
Flickering in my head
It's better here alone
No one will ever hear

And when the darkness
Blinks the eye of the sun
It will be me standing at home
And you...
Beginning to run

Exhume the force conception
Bodies dead since birth
Your life is prostitution
It's payment is a curse

Bathe the souls in talons
Prison the world in bonds
You dogs of Sodom
Raping the angels of gad"
9. Shattered My Spirit (9:15)
"Leave me now my weary soul
Like the rain of sorrow falls
Through the cracks of crumbling stone
Deep within my walls

See me now my empty life
Throw away all your lies
The tears for all the angels
Will never reach the sky

[CHORUS]
The shadow and the sun
Are no longer one
Have I lost the light?
Shatter my Spirit tonight

I've given all that I can give
It never seemed enough
My blood is in this fire
Burning all my trust

Another face of a sunless day
Another moonless night
I must surrender to the dream
I can no longer fight

I cannot pretend...
This is the end

So leave me now my weary soul
My sorrow here is spent
These foolish lies that we deny
Are taking all we give"
