Edge of the Earth Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Procession (6:45)
Crimson hands cursed and bound
Silence broken as the world comes crashing down
All that lives expires
Yet so untimely
Lord dethroned
My brother betrayer
Ripping wounds revealed
Harbinger of doom
The sky has fallen
And I bare it's weight
These walls harbor uniquity
A darkness which never sleeps
Sewing the seeds of doubt within
I am but a pawn
Looming clouds prevail
Concealing the Sun
Weaving a tapestry of guile
I've tried to keep adrift
On a sea of confusion
Drank of the rivers and vale
Life ends here
Commit this body to the ground
Let soil wash over crossed arms
A vessel to the grave
Rests in lament
Life ends here
Pull me up through the sky
Peering through the trees
Wildfires alive in me
Will turn you to stone
I can still see the face
You buried alone
Held in sleep
Life ends here
Commit this body to the ground
Let soil wash over crossed arms
A vessel to the grave
Rests in lament
Banished
Banished
2. Sands of Time (5:07)
As the world turns again
Lifetimes come to an end
Days are lost in a void
Closer with every turn
I felt the earth move
Yet grounded to my core
Watched the clouds race past
An age tranpired vefore my eyes
As the day turns to night
Forced into confinement
But no peace will I find
Just counting hours by
I felt the earth move
Revolting beneath my feet
Each moment deceives the mind
And our perceptions of time
Void of being and light
As year pass by the Reaper's hourglass deplets
All life will cease
Seeking the past
Always chasing the horizon
How long before we reach the end of the road
And our names are carved in stone
Endless aeons begin
As I watch the dead Sun burn
Before your demise
Close your weary eyes
In the back of your mind
You'll see the final Sands of Time
3. Empyreal (Part 1) (4:51)
It's said the future's written in the skies
The stars align
Planets collide
Shadows inherit the Earth
Denounce this shallow faith
I have seen through the veil
I espouse this call to arms
Of the Empyreal paradigm
Preaching to all that breathes life
Fear the divine
Denounce this shallow faith
I have seen through the veil
I espouse this upheaval
As stones collide with ignorance
Burrow your feral words into the ground
The graves you've made will pull you down
Holy man keep your revelations to yourself
Deny all you are
Keep your blindfold out of spite
For all who lack direction need a guide
Beneath a sunken sky
We will reap what you've sewn
Bind your mouth
And drop your head down
As stone collide with ignorance
Burrow your feral words into the ground
The graves you've made will put you down
4. Empyreal (Part 2) (1:07)
5. A Serpents Tongue (5:23)
Through compulsion
Deceptive thoughts escape
Revealing a leech within
All blood replaced
Archaic Ancestry
Consuming the mind
Shape shifting
Hallowed guise
Soul engraved
Becoming a corporeal slave
Beneath the surface
Lies another being
Seeping through your skin
Beguiling
Transparent
Words flow like venomous spit
Shape shifting
Hallowed guise
Soul engraved
Becoming a corporeal slave
Riddled with disease
It breathes
It bleeds
It speaks
Lies
The mask of humanity breaks
Jaws open to expose this vile creature
Possessed in flesh uttering hypocrisy
Nothing does it taste
It's only purpose is to secrete verbal waste
Leech within
Holding to
One ounce of truth
All see through
To what lies beneath you
A constant struggle inside
Biologically lobotomized
Before you speak and even begin to think
Remember you're merely a man and not a god
6. Awakening (3:58)
Tunnels of light capture symbols in the stone
Out of touch and weak
Return this scourge to it's seed
Held in life's quicksand
Emptiness defined
By the blaze ignite
Embody the light
Infinite fires burn through mortal skin and bone
As shapes shift and coil
Darkness departs, divides
Held in life's quicksand
Emptiness defined
By the blaze ignite
Embody the light
Broken to the core
Destroyed by every thought
Pierce through every flaw
Like waves unbounded
Impurity binds the flesh
Wrapped in cold misery
Darkness breathing light, eternally
Impurity binds the flesh
Wrapped in cold misery
Darkness breathing life, empowering
Empowering
Regenerate,
Engage,
Awakening
Regenerate,
Engage,
Bone, body and mind
7. Kingdom of Solitude (5:37)
I am your keeper
And this wall will protect
Will all great at Neptune's ocean wash the blood from my hands
Transformed and tiresome
A ghostly vision of what life used to be
Dead eyes stare aimlessly
At what's beyond
In need of anguish
The penalty repaind
To end the means
I am Impurity
Imprisoned in a cold shell
So isolate
Awating the grave
Wallowing in exile
A ritual sacrifice
The hunter has come
Dead eyes stare aimlessly
At what's beyond
In need of anguish
The penalty repaid
To end the means
Teacher! Leader!
Show us how to feel pain and remorse
Bleed these lacerations dry
Until I cease the urge to exploit
This Kingdom of Solitude
A personal hell
I must try not to feed off the pain
That I once reveled in
A lone wolf in this emptiness
Defeated
I've served this sentence far too many times
This face is scarred and worn
Help me get rid of this crown of throns
I still feed of the pain
That I once reveled in
Teacher! Leader!
Show us how to feel the pain and remorse
Bled these lacerations dry
Until I cease the urge to exploit
8. Where the Sky Ends (3:56)
9. Dystopia (5:43)
A wave of light
Tears through the eye
As the taste of bitter destruction
Swells the tongue
Baron Earth
Swen with seeds of wrath
Engulfed in tragedy
By purveyors of corruption and greed
On suffering they feed
Flock to the heavens
In swells of despair
Crawling towards your bitter end
Turn away from the Sun
That's severed the night from day
When all lie, steal and cheat
It means nothing in a world of deceit
...And without words
The black hearts of man
Will teach us to fear
By the force of their hand
When rivers flood and break their banks
Tides turn, storm rolls
When skies ignite with rain like fire
Tides turn, storm rolls
When mortal men barter for peace
Beware he who bears the mark of the beast
Following blind men,
To their graves
Death greets you,
With a suffocating embrace
...And without words
The black hearts of man
Will teach us to fear
By the force of their hand
10. Apparitions (7:15)
How quick the seasons change
The leaves turned from green to grey
A flickering apparition hovers above
So familiar, yet so distant
Preserved in age, icy hands support a somber face
Like a curse of immortality
Father time mocks me
Through grave and tomb
Past valley and precipice
Emerges the ghost of retribution
The horizon burns, set light by kin and blood
A snake amongst us, has soured this soil
Sometimes I hope you aren't looking down on me, to witness what I've become
Through time you will see what blinds you
Beholder of all light
Turn back the stone
To your slumber return
Suspended on a tide of obscurity
A wraith missing a crown
It almost feels like time is standing still
Yet somehow time has drained me of my youth
The years I've waited have all but slipped away
Torn from me
Father time forever mocks me
[Solo]
I have become, I have become, powerless, power-less
I have become, I have become, so emotionless
Through time you will see what blinds you
Beholder of all light
Turn back the stone
To your slumber return
11. Altered States of Consciousness (5:31)
All control is lost
Senses deprived
Deaf ears still hear the malign
The altars crumbling
Cloak of obscurity
A crown wrapped tight around you neck
Gaunt hands to hold you back
I've seen the world in a new light
No holy shrines
Nothing to resemble eternal life
Now turning back I see,
What could have been but never was
A pressure so dense,
Upon my chest it could paralyze
Lucid
A mask forced upon me
Impaled by fear

Stones drag to the riverbed below
Below
Death is here
And he's been clawing at my thoughts again
Forever drowning in perdition
Submerged in azure waters
12. Beyond the Resurrected (5:09)
Bleak shades become familiar
Within a cavernous haze
Eyes wide but lifeless
Billows of smoke decay

Free, yet held in place
Bound by veins

No winds can disconnect
Severed from the outside
Roots swell and seep
And drain life from everything

Behold, a change
All consuming
Dead skin, dead flesh
Earthly womb

[Chorus]
Deathly haze so thick
Coiling the air
Once stood a hollow man, once stood a ghost
Beyond the resurrected

Now the blood that pulses through me has been replaced
Eyes sink into this vast land and ocean

[Solo: Middleton]

Forced through the Earth's shell

I can't see the sky anymore
I can't see what's dragging me down

[Chorus]
Deathly haze so thick
Coiling the air
Once stood a hollow man, once stood a ghost
Beyond the resurrected
13. Eclipsed (4:45)
Shrouded in darkness
It has formed a wreath around you
Wisdom comes through exile
And through this alone
Moon's lapse
Escape the trance
Your throne grows cold
The day breaks into,
A thousand shards
Dawn breaks into,
Everlasting night
Shrouded in darkness
It has formed a shell around you
Wisdom comes throughr exile
And though this alone
Moon's lapse
Escape the trance
Before you grow old
The light has lost it's path
No Sun will rise in the epoch of the shadow
Light blinds our eyes
Eclipsing dark Luna's sky
Flooding the night
The face of the Earth
Silent yet still alive
Pulled into the night
14. From the Edge of the Earth (7:37)
Falling ground beneath my feet
Pulling my heart through my ribs
Head hung low
Dragged through the soil
No one to carry me on through the storm
Through time reborn,
I'll become the blood of the Earth
A voice unheard
Desolation served to the grave
Punished through an age
I've felt the piercing cold
Claw at my skin
Bury me with the maker
Through time rebon,
I'll become the blood of the Earth
No one to serve
Each day withers and fades
Yet the guilt never leaves
Years of endless mourning
A conscience so unclean
I've begged, pleaded and beseeched
Humbled before your majesty
I've felt the cold Moon's mercy
Now it's suffocating
Relieve me
Push me back,
Pulling me back,
No crown shall I bare
Push me back,
Pulling me back,
To salvation
Eyes so palid
Keep the heart beating
Long live the blood I yield
I kneel before your throne
Oh, God, what have I done
Tell them I've suffered enough
No open arms wait for me
Just this cold body
