Far from Light Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles (2017-03-28)
1. Hadrian Carrying Stones (9:46)
Hadrian, oh lonely man
Take a look across the fen
Struggle in a land afar
Where yellow suns are red

Throw away your sword
Cloaked in darkness
Atop the hill
Towers your esperance
Why is life bitter still?

Hadrian, the gods have lied
Sons of eagle's gold defied
Caesar strong thy banners fall
When earth is sky

Carry stones to barren wastelands
White bleach the foams of Tyne
Legions marching
Hide your hopes
Save your life and die

From Shadow to the edge of night
We'll stand
Shadow, cloud and shade
All shall fade, all shall fade

While all shall fade in silver sand and sulphur fire
Grief is forever
Thy fortress tamed the dusk and wed the dawn
Climb its spires and
Be no more
2. They That Walk the NIght (6:10)
When the night is falling
When the wind is whispering in your ear
Lock the doors, tuck your pillow tight
For they will soon be here

Picking flowers, Little Mary screamed and
Never reached her home
For in darkness entwined
They prey on those who dwell alone

Something's watching from the shadows
Something's here to break your neck
Try to run, they will get you
They're already on your track

They that walk the night will hunt you down
As terror strikes this town
A night like this when evil strives
The price is your life

Dagger claws and crimson eyes
No one will hear your cries
All slashed til left are few
And they are coming out to get you

They that walk the night will hunt you down
As terror strikes this town
A night like this when evil strives
The price is your life

And they will get you!
3. Frozen Goddess (6:00)
As one day snow came flaking
As then the world stood still
And time
Mine eyes they saw a figure
A maiden fair in hand
An oublet of ice

Come and close your eyes forever
Lay down and choose to die
In breathless sleep all grief shall falter
As I take your life

As one day was clashing
As then the wind was wild
A man lay dead
The kiss of the goddess
There are jewels on her lips
So white, so pure

Come and close your eyes forever
Lay down and choose to die
In breathless sleep all grief shall falter
You will be mine

Come and close your eyes forever
Lay down and choose to die
In breathless sleep all grief shall falter
As I take your life
4. Gone Astray (6:19)
You leave dark and empty corners
You said your heart has changed
You are autumn, I am falling
And things they change, I know

And I am fine, my fingers feel
But I'm also a liar, you know

Watch the days all turn to grey
When your heart has gone astray
Brush my soul bare, take away
All the pain

Weary years pass, hear me say
All my life has gone astray
Tread me down into the ground
Rend my love to pieces

I saw you walking past
You were smiling, I was frail
How can I not care about myself?
Yet care so much for you?

And you fade, you fade
I read the flame
Indulgence is yours and yours alone

Watch the days all turn to grey
When your heart has gone astray
Brush my soul bare, take away
All the pain

Weary years pass, hear me say
All my life has gone astray
Tread me down into the ground
Rend my love to pieces

Desperate eyes, helping hands
Silent cries, suspending strands
Paper Fire, wrong desire
Struggling strong, too hard, too long

Watch the days all turn to grey
When your heart has gone astray
Brush my soul bare, take away
All the pain

Weary years pass, hear me say
All my life has gone astray
Tread me down into the ground
Rend my love to pieces
5. The Hour of Dying (8:01)
Disciples of the desert kneeling
Golgatha's hills were dreaming
The light, the world through sacrifice
Baptized through your knives

And as I saw my life leave me
The cross barren, cold
A penance against the world
Do not weep for me but
For all the things that never changed
For all the sorrow, I am absolution
I am the light

Feathers fall
Raise the hammer, set the nail
Drive them deep
The Hour of Dying will prevail

Daughters weep
Silver cascades on this night
Ad maiorem dei gloriam
Ash is grey and dark is light

Hunger strikes the prophets
Woe will greet their doors
Lust will be their gospel
Sanctify the whores
Adonai Elohim Iehova Tetragrammaton

The howling of the Marids
The cries upon the wind
The flames that do not burn
The paradox within

What is it that we want?
What is it that we seek?
The given light cuts sore and deep

Oh father, maybe all of us have somehow lost their will
Forgive us, for our eyes are blinded

Feathers fall
Raise the hammer, set the nail
Drive them deep
The Hour of Dying will prevail

Daughters weep
Silver cascades on this night
Ad maiorem dei gloriam
Ash is grey and dark is light
6. The Kraken (9:24)
Below the thunders of the deep
Far beneath in the abysmal sea
His ancient, dreamless sleep
And the faintest sunlight flee

There hath he lain for ages
And will lie
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep

On his shadowy sides, above him swell
Millenial growth and height
Sponges huge and far away, in to the light
From many wondrous cells

There hath he lain for ages
And will lie
Battering upon sea-worms in his sleep
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep

Riding on waves up high
Once by man and angels to be seen
In roaring thunder he shall rise
And on the surface die

Enormous polypi
What have thine eyes seen?
Winnow giant arms
Through the slumbering green

Riding on waves up high
Once by man and angels to be seen
In roaring thunder he shall rise
And on the surface die
7. Cimmeria (8:52)
Slope on slope
Drenched in grey
Endless hills now fill my sight
Cold wind in Cimmeria
Land of darkness and the night

Here, in the savage northland
Never bow and never kneel
Darkest invocation
The secret of steel

Hath light not given fortune?
Hath twilight dimmed the sun?
Hath right not been retaken?
Hath face done me wrong?

This throne I gained through courage
By Crom, I will not sell!
By promise of valleys filled with gold
Or thread of halls of hell

Wind and stone, i search my heart and find...
8. Earendil (3:22)
A tall white ship
Up to the sky
We saw it ride
On its wings of gold
Carrying upon its sails
The hopes of man

Fly away to shores in the West
While all the doves cry out your name
Earendil, gone are the days
The mountains are old, the oceans lie cold

Fly away to shores in the West
While all the doves cry out your name
Earendil, gone are the days
Now leave behind those earthly gyves
