As Heaven Turns to Ash Lyrics

(6)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Dusk (1:55)
instrumental
2. Doom's Bride (9:20)
Might King Osric
Lord and usurper
Solemn strength of times gone
Great triumphs mean nothing
Noble pillar stands
Stone pride defines time
Ever all knowing time

Following endless serpents of Jade
Weary travelers on the crossroads of life
Driven by hatred braided with hope
Searching for truth past
Appolonia...

Sing to the winds
Where the earth meets the sky
Sing to the winds
Scream to the sky.
3. Black Acid Prophecy (8:56)
The narcotic priest vows vengeance
Upon the righteous, with chalice held high
Crushed by the cross held to dear
Betrayed by their faith as they cry

Communion complete, the masses helpless
Servents in the eyes of the new god
The temple resounds with hymns of allegience
On your knees and witness the birth of a king

Black acid dreams, the moon turns to blood
Black acid dreams, the deafening silence

The mind's eye weeps the blood of a thousand ancients
A chasm of infinity awaits, helpless and broken
A serpent's kiss, eyes of blood, wings of fire
Follow him to the Anti-Eden, Piper of the wicked

Black acid concubine, your soul is mine
Melting temples echo with the hymns of doom
Prophecies become existence
Cower and behold the death of hope

Black acid prophecies
Guardian of Forever.
4. Amber Vial (3:28)
5. Every Flower Dies No Matter the Thorns (Wither) (8:35)
[Music-Laskowski/Lyrics-Hubbard]

See the beauty in evil
See the evil in beauty

Beneath the dense veil
A dismal embrace awaits
The saddened soul

Within the infinite veil
The blackened stars caress
Every flower dies
No matter the thorns
6. Lysergic Communion (10:17)
Alter of dawn, bury me in light
Crimson eclipse, blood and body ignite
Lysergic communion, thy cup runneth over

Ascend through the trees as the landscape fades
Disciple of the sun, the red horizon cascades
Burning away the masks meant to hide
Writhing becoming the demon inside

The battle rages for the church of the sun
Victorious, I dethrone the chosen one

Defeated cast the weak to the sea
Perched upon my throne, immortal deity
My kingdom of flames, my Servents the stars
A prophecy revealed through all of my scars.
7. Dawn (1:48)
8. Scrape (10:32)
Razors scrape away the decay
From the inside
Until this shell is empty
The stench of failure is cleansed with hate

Bound

Have nothing
Need nothing
Am nothing but scars

Lost and forgotten pile of shit
Glaring up from the bottom
Feed hunger, consume it whole
Scribble disdain with blood upon the wall

Vomit belief, struggle to suffer
Leave me alone, I'm at one with grief
Save your pity for someone who needs it
Purged of the will to live
I'm better now

Have nothing
Need nothing
Have nothing but scars Razors scrape away the decay
From the inside
Until this shell is empty
The stench of failure is cleansed with hate.
9. ...and the Angels Begin to Weep... (1:31)
