1. Origin (2:06)
Don't let the sun go down in your heart, my child
Lest fear and woe follow in your wake
2. Ghost Recurrence (7:53)
Certain poetry in past view of the world
An oeuvre beneath my talents, yet above my morals

Ceased are the days of waste for I represent myself
All extremes I endorse as I move from reticence to clamor

Betwixt those two verges, a ghost appears

And her eyes now glare in moonlight
Reflecting the passion felt once before
In the midst of crusts of snow
A sight of otherworldly glow
An argent dirk she draws from my chest
Which she hands to me

No words she speaks, no words she yearns for
The sharpened steel I grip, as I brace for a trade of blows

I, I think I feel nothing as your blade's touch
Carves a slit into my trachea

But the eyes still sway in moonlight
Reflecting the passion felt once before
In the midst of crusts of snow
A sight of otherworldly glow
Our blood blends with the silver soil
And dream of stars rewinds the hours to foregone days of ours

Forging paradigms of false
Latching weapons from my sight
Dying won't atone these deeds
For sowed are the vilest of seeds

Resting in her hand, a blade of virtue
Piercing my skin of evil, a cry, an unsought reprisal

Let us both die, the blood is painting the walls
Ardent exiles, now we both have became
Dying misfits, the pain is weighting too much
No more struggle, the dream returns:

In this chamber beneath the quilts
Hands sleep together and wait this night
Soundless winter behind the walls
Kindled are the hours in this new abode

And the eyes still glare in moonlight
Reflecting the passion I still feel now
In the midst of crusts of snow
A sight of otherworldly glow
Her figure eerie yet sublime
A spectacle to be witnessed for a lifetime
3. Undawning (3:56)
All you create will end forgotten

From time to time my nemesis speaks words feared by many
But in the end, the only timid one is I, the rationalist among the frivolous

Run farther; the revenants are drawing near
Here I stand dreading for the day, the day that eventually comes
And it will be my last

Torment through the times countless
As mind breaks from world's soundness
But I will have no time to weep
For I fall in dreamless sleep

From time to time my nemesis speaks:
"All you create will end forgotten"
The works made by gods are not for me to keep
As my mind, my oneself, my heart
Will rot with my corpse
My lifeless corpse

Breathe the morning sun
For this one last time in here before the lights fade away

Lush heath unfolds the end of times for soul
Cast away are my hours in this life fading out
Undawning
4. Search for Tomorrow (5:37)
I told myself to never stray indoctrinated by their words
I push the verge of nature by extirpating my ideals
But how can I look at myself after ceasing to fare well?
I cannot find the answer all by myself
I will not thrive ere my augury

I still dream of the days when I could deliver myself
But somehow all the pain has not faded away
I somehow ought to leave but I still ought to stay
With no regrets nor fear of dying, falling, stalling
I seek to find the day

I abandon all the thoughts about my view of the world
By forever staying the same as I’ve always been
But I do not search for the past, I seek for nothing higher
I just want to demand myself to relish the verity
Will I ever be free from the enticements
Which expect me to astray, to choose the facile path?
So I wish to search for tomorrow, cadaver born of the past
And the hourglass of times bereaves from me

Constellations are falling into the sea in which the hubrises dwell
To the dark waters I descend, from the firmament I cast myself

I abandon all the thoughts about my view of the world
By forever staying the same as I’ve always been
But I do not search for the past, I seek for nothing higher
I just want to redeem myself by finding the answers
Will I ever be free from the enticements
Which expect me to astray, to choose the facile path?
So I see the colours which are yet to fade
And I am searching for something brighter
Searching - searching

Never thanked for what I had, I will lose it all, it all
I dreamt for all the beauty which I never could have
Every day seems so empty, every night so dull
But my dreams still carry me to atone myself.
5. Dualism (4:42)
My right hand gave a letter to him
Written in poetic words, phrases
In a language of other worlds

My left hand gave a letter to him
Written with love, devotion, kinship
With the progeny of days destined

Two shaded figures amble before my eyes
A poetic unity, but known not to last
And beatific scenery wilting as they pace
Inharmony pulsing as if a heartbeat

Before me the paths unveil conflicted

Free yet aimless these apparitions lie
As I fight back the fate that befell them
Midst the endless thoughts within my scarred mind
For long have I known one of them dies young

The discordances deepen for they’re never truly free
And through every waking second the strife is drawing near

Neath the lineament of the wavering tree line
They both know these hours are lies which all must be burned
Safe havens turn to dust

Free yet aimless these apparitions lie
As I fight back the fate that befell them
But deep down I know the lack of all hope
For no matter which one I choose I will die alone
6. Departure (2:33)
Stay with me for a while
Recite this single verse with me
With me

I feel for you
I fear for you, my child
She leaves too early

No more endeavours, my child
Leave this one last line for me
For me

I feel for you
I fear for you, my child
She dies too early
7. My Epigraph in Woe (7:44)
A timeless seer emerged from beyond
A god through many lives, he came to tell the truths
"Bespeak, my child, for I know your future
Not a sheen fate you carry, an apathy that will befall thee
Like to everyone else before you"

And when I reached my dawning I felt nothing, nothing at all
I breached the gates of longing the first time forever
Father, don't amend me for I'm drowning all the time
An image of tragedy, all I wish is to go home

A timeless seer, a god seen once before
I reject you this time and all that you speak of
Frantic search through these hours of deceit
Yet I reached nothing but this diseased state of mind
And I head for the torchlight as the landscape dies

I see the world through the eyes of a madman
And I fear for what I might become
As my golden means are fragile
I run away from the grayness
A void filled with small glimmers of hope
The hope which I now have, the hope which I'm doomed to give away

When I reached my dawning I felt nothing, nothing at all
I breached the gates of longing the first time forever
Thoughts I cannot control, please rid me of this disease
Sanity this world, this world stole from me

When I reached my dawning I felt nothing, nothing at all
I breached the gates of longing the first time forever
Father, don't amend me for I'm drowning all the time
An epigraph of woe written before I was born
I grew too old too young, I stayed too young too old

All alone in silence, all these thoughts haunt like demons
8. Shade of the Darker Sun (5:04)
I will betray the world
but not my own kin
I sway the water away
cut my hand and bleed

Today, every day I see the clarity fade
shrouded in the thoughts of doubt

I have all the world on my shoulders
but none of the riches they bear
And I’ll die for my sins
the sins the world made for me

Ripping the canvas of law and virtue
with my rusted blades
When the stars align
and my dreams become true

Liberation in death
let the lies cut deeper
Curse this world and its own child
who I once were

Today, every day I see the clarity fade
shrouded in the thoughts of doubt

I bury the words they say,
my lament in chaos
Yet the edicts of false pour through the soil,
and break the silence

I have all the world on my shoulders
but none of the riches they bear
An oeuvre as dark as my soul
as I live under the shade of the darker sun

I am my own god, I need no one else
to find the truth
Did I choose to die
or choose what they did for me?
9. Ordeal (15:01)
[I - The Act]
I am the architect
murderer of intrinsic values
Poet of the unknown tongues
the only witness of the deities’ visions

And I hear the assailants drawing nigh
Breaching through these gates of old

Inside these halls of dying stone, a summoning of incantation.
A cosmic beast emerging; I know the answers now

Timeless hunter, the beast of scourge
Will not let the images die in vain

A perfect window of opportunity as no man could suspect my actions to come
A plot forged in fear of casualties, in fear of the end, the end of myself

But the parasites crawl inside
the fragile gestalt I shaped

With these thoughtful acts of violent rage
I will save us from the towering waves
A true display of rational surmise
Ending the chapter too blithe and naïve

Please, discern that I won’t feel touched as these actions craft my fate

Fear not these wayfaring forces
which you are to outsmart
Let the poison seep away
let the hunter beast sleep within

Without the sordid pleas
I decry all that I've rid
And I reach further towards the stars
Without the lament diseased
I harvest what I once sowed
And let the fate unfold
I let the fate unfold

I can uphold this chaos

[II - The Doubt]
Please, design me for these decaying scenes
My hours without the sun
All I want is answers

Peripheries of power dying in these hands of mine
Hands covered in blood of the once-verdant life
As the structures fail, as the pillars crumble beneath
I’m forced to forget these methods, procedures honed by the past

I pay the progress with my blood
Progress abandoned in the end

When all I hear and all I see is nothing but veils, veils in the night
I’m treading onward with desperate pace, falling over time and time again

When everything's lost I rebuild it all

To keep this passion inbound
I have to fight all alone
As my life is foreshadowed
by the dying days
By the dying days

[III - The Resolution]
Then I saw myself beyond the wall
“This is no wall for the barriers lie inside your head”
Standing on the crossroads I wish to return home
“Are you sure you want to die? For I know you cannot live without me”

The archives must never be burned, these books and scriptures of old
Fear not these waves of endless ocean, fear not their towering figures
Don’t let the sun go down in your heart, my child
Lest fear and woe follow in your wake

But we all will drown

[IV - The Memory]
These words I've once heard before in childhood
Words I once said to myself, the future me:

“Don’t let the sun go down in your heart, my child
Lest fear and woe follow in your wake”
