Conclusion of an Age Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Desolate Seas (1:06)
2. After Lifeless Years (4:57)
The truth became so clear to you, and so your faith has died
Now see what waits for you on the other side
A morbid sea of deepest black, a distant ever burning flame
With nowhere else to turn, we wander alone... forever alone
Forsaken by the God you loved, and now your love has died
No miracle will shine its light on you
So easily directed, your thoughts remain your only guide
Know you will see no truth beneath this cloak of lies
A distant ever piercing cry... so far away
Blinded by aspirations of a higher state
Wasting your life just searching for a periphery
Hold on to the thought, that it was just,
And pray for life to continue
We'll fall beyond safeties grasp
To re-emerge lifeless
Trying to break from the clutches of our death
A morbid sea of deepest black, a distant ever burning flame
A distant ever piercing cry, so far away...
3. The Blackest Skyline (4:57)
Hordes thrown into chaos with nowhere to be safe
You'll push aside your fellow man in hope of your escape
There is no light to see beyond the blackest skyline
First the sound approaches, then the lightning strikes
Lie to yourself to mask the fears of the unknown
Punish yourself until you've nowhere to call home
Ans somewhere inside lies a shadow of the creature you hide
The end is now progress, a fatal last mistake
You left behind your fellow man and now have no escape
There is no light to see beyond the blackest skyline
First the sound approaches, then the lightning strikes
Lie to yourself and never see the thing you are
Punish yourself until your failure is a scar
And somewhere inside lies the creature you hide
Destroying yourselves to purify
To rebuild we must first destroy
Now the earth has no foundation
Bodies tumble into the black abyss
They hear the sound of wings
Teeth are gnashing....God?
There is no light to see beyond the blackest skyline
Foundations shake beneath the shallows
As the Gods rain down on us
And somewhere inside lies a shadow of the creature you hide
Destroying yourselves to purify
4. Transcendence (4:30)
Inside we continue to search for thoughts
Beliefs filling the void
There is nothing but a resolute
Craving for comfort in powers beyond our control
And the journey begins for thoughts
Beliefs filling the void
There is nothing but an empty heart
Craving for solace amidst the fray
It wont be long until we are lost
His blood be on us and on our children
Will you justify?
Nations in an eternal war for thoughts
Beliefs centuries old
You are merely but a breath away
Lost in the moment in taking a life
In the name of your God
For thoughts...beliefs cleansing the earth
Who are you to criticise?
You fight for nothing but a lie
It wont be long til the parody falls
It wont be long until we are lost
His blood be on us and our children
Will you testify?
Blood is split for centuries
Lawlessness, mobocracy
Pestilence, anarchy
All in the name of powers that be
All hypocrisy
It wont be long til the parody falls
It wont be long until we are lost
5. Reflections Through Fire (4:29)
I begin descent into a world ...to another domain
Where the anguished screams and fires will fill the air
And the burning stench of sulphur asphyxiates
Where nothing is for certain, where no-one can be safe
Forced Into Fire
Struck down as I prepare to take this final step
May my reflection fade as I wash away what is left of this life
To endure is all I can attempt
Damnation everlasting
Where sentenced souls imprisoned will not repent
And there is no darker way to face this decline
Than where I am right now, The end of time
Forced Into Fire
Struck down as I prepare to take this final step
May my reflection fade as I wash away what is left of this life
Is this all that's left? Is this all that I am?
Escape from this bitter end... that only thought remains, aspire to contend
Wander blindly into the night... hope to receive a sign will I survive?
Struck down as I prepare to take this final step
May my reflection fade as I wash away what is left of this life
Forced Into Fire
6. Conclusion of an Age (5:38)
Atrocities before our eyes
This crumbling world now lies gasping for air
And is sickens me to think we will not grow old and die
Before we face extinction...human demise
As we face the end of days...as the lifeline drifts away
We're left to face impending immense decay
The strength of oceans, the blinding light
The cosmic forces revealing their might
Aeons in slumber awake the rage
Eradication closing in...conclusion of an age
And with our future in this state
Alliances are broken...friendships will turn to hate
And it sickens me to think we will not survive this day
Pushed far beyond the edge of sanity
As we fade the odds of death
As the hope dissolves away
We're left to face the sorrow eternally
The strength of oceans, the blinding light
The cosmic forces revealing their might
Aeons in slumber awake the rage
Eradication closing in...conclusion of an age
War...this war erases history
Watching as we fall apart
Witness catastrophe spread like deadly disease
Eradication closing in...conclusion of an age
7. Swallow the World (5:54)
Inside I Pray for sleep that never comes
How long before this night is over? It swallows me whole...
I've reached the end, with no solution
So easy to forget hope inside of me
I've lost control of all in my destiny
And to fail and falter shall be the death of me
Search far and wide for a spark of inspiration
So long I stared into the blackness and swallowed the world
The end of time, there's no tomorrow
So easy to ignore 'til the final hour
I'll take control of all in my destiny
And to fail and falter shall be the death of me
And these dark days will bathe in black all that is pure inside
Before I face the hour, the sun will set
Cold whispers in my ear 'This is not the end'
End of all that I know...eternal silence
All I have in this life will perish in flames
Feeding on my life's blood
Aching, I beg for mercy
This is more than I can take (how much will you take away?)
This is more that i can bare
So now I fall endlessly
Hope is lost, longing for sleep
To take a breath and finally see the horrors that destroy me
A dying promise of endless pain Will take you to your grave
And these dark days will bathe in black all that is pure inside
Before i face the hour, the sun will set
Cold whispers in my ear 'This is not the end'
End of all that I know...eternal silence
All I have in this life will perish in flames
8. Teras (5:20)
Look at the world bestowed unto our children
Their lives are over before they have begun
The weak lost in temptations of the flesh
We see the will of tyrants gaining strength
Fear in control... the screams are everywhere
Now hear the sound of millions running scared
We're crushed by the weight of the burden on our shoulders
Relentless pressure to bridge this great divide
The weak lost in the chasms of despair
We see the nations crumbling to ash
Fear in control... the screams are everywhere
Now hear the sound of millions running scared
Horrors so dark, this is no nightmare...this is real
This is the end of life... the end of life we know
Impossible to see a way for is to survive
Awakening to fury... the fury of the death
Relentless fire consuming everyone
9. Withered (4:37)
Every dream is now on and the same...inspiration remains just a memory
Such a tragedy to see the day when every blessing seems to go to waste
So when did we think that the world owes us any more than we deserve?
Sickening to see us lose our way, drifting down a road of endless pain
When promise has withered inside
There is no future, no better life for mankind
Where's the truth when we've nothing to say? Push it all aside, find a better way
Such a tragedy to see the day when every blessing seems to go to waste
When promise has withered inside, there is no future... no better life
With nothing we wither inside...the earth will swallow what's left of us
To escape ....you'll find no way
Witness the end of days
The sky rips open, to light will blind us all
Oceans will rise, erasing all we know
And now the silence is everlasting
Rebirth of promise through devastation
So we failed and we lost the world...it was nothing more than we deserved
Sickening to see us lose our way
Nothing learned by our own mistakes...now it's too late
When promise has withered inside, there is no future...no better life
With nothing we wither inside...the earth will swallow what's left of us
10. Last Remaining Light (7:37)
We wander in the maze of a thousand lost creations
Feel the streams of the coming failure and gaze upon the sky
And how did it come to this...lack of perception? Or just plain ignorance
Forging fires spreading fear into the wild,
The scorched earth will be the womb of bastard child
And the earth will devastate man to the core
The day the legacy of human is no more
Nightmares begin to surface and crash upon the walls
Hear the screams of the fallen saviours, they have no place to hide
And how did it come to this...lack of perception? Or just plain ignorance
Forging fires spreading fear into the wild
The scorched earth will be the womb of bastard child
And the earth will devastate man to the core
The day the legacy of human is no more
No force greater than destiny
Watching your world as it implodes
As the promise of hope is no longer in sight
What is the last remaining light?
Forever damned
Wander the earth
And the horizon's promise remains within our hearts
11. Stained Humanity (4:30)
War will reign supreme
With the iron fist prevailing, destroying dreams of peace
And innocence will suffer all in the name of wealth
Transform this world of ours into a living hell
Rivers of blood will wash away hope of a better life
The stained humanity
And the child with the vision in this mind makes a transformation to a martyr
Opportunities have passed him by the fight to bring his nation power
War will reign supreme
With the compromises failing, this conflict sickens me
The innocent will suffer, because of a sacred text
Transform this world of ours into a living hell
Thrown to the lions, a small price to pay
In the eyes of pigs who wallow in authority
Their only vision a circus of decay
In the disguise of our salvation they lead us to our graves
12. Oath of Silence (5:29)
Shamed by the weak and cast down in disgust
A shell of a broken man without trust
Preaching upon open ears of the deaf
Depraved words uttered beneath your cold breathe
Killing what's left of the embers of youth
Scraping and clawing for a whisper of truth
Sewing our mouths shut as nothing escapes
Love and grave is a display of a man you once were

But unlike the hand of Midas
What you touch with turn to shit
Blood will flow between us
And the ground will shake until you repent your sins

The touch of cold skin and the embrace of life
In darkness dwells secrets in a holy disguise
Nothing will soothe you, old hands will turn numb
Silence will not speak

But unlike the hand of Midas
What you touch will turn to shit
Burn this fucking saviour
Until you see the damage you cause
