Semlah Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat (2016-05-11)
1. From the Seat of False Judgement (1:35)
2. Path of a Waning Moon (3:34)
Night falls, the daylight dying
Like a coiling dark snake
A sudden appearance though slowly writhing
And I am drowning in its wake

The black cloaks came too soon
I follow the path of a waning moon

The glistening rain is like shattered glass
Starlit like the eyes of beasts
Is there a way out of this nightmare fast
A return to the silken dreams

The black cloaks came too soon
I follow the path of a waning moon

The high hopes fell like heavy stones
On this my road to ruin
Inglorious journey wearing on my bones
Damn that sullen end I am pursuing

The air is shrill and cold
Nowhere to run
The silken dreams of old
Are gone

The black cloaks came too soon
I follow the path of a waning moon
3. Axioms of Life (8:17)
The rivalry the pathetic strife
You have fallen from grace
Oblivious to the axioms of life
You have fallen flat on your face

Born under a gun
Blind you run
Into the citadel of the fallen one

The accumulation of obstacles
The abandonment of principles
The intuitive understanding ignored
The animal let loose to win the war

Born under a gun
Blind you run
Into the citadel of the fallen one

The hunger for power
The demon that clutches at our souls
You are caught in its web
Alone now you cower
Inside you are barren and cold
The demon is fed

Born under a gun
Blind you run
Into the citadel of the fallen one
4. Perennial Movement III (6:51)
Strange and unpredictable twists and turns
Entangled in the wicked ways of the world
No bright star to guide me, to lead me home
No angel to sleep beside me, I'm all alone

Nebulous tapestry, faces from my past
All of which I believed would last
Why must my world so furiously spin
Lost in the now and losing what's been

Spread-eagled on an unstable ground
Like a feverish nightmare
Perennial movement of familiar sounds
Speak to me if you're hiding there

Are you hiding there?

The bright star shines, sublime, can I reach it?
There lies the key to change my ways
The tide turns and I must learn
to use this momentum
And let it govern my day

Spread-eagled on an unstable ground
Like a feverish nightmare
Perennial movement of familiar sounds
Speak to me if you're hiding there

Are you hiding there?

In dreams I speed across the plains
The plains of my paradise
Tempestuous explosions, a flood of emotions
I taste the essence of life

Spread-eagled on a stable ground
No disturbing flashes of light
My future is not out of bounds
I shall rise up from the ashes tonight
5. Machination (3:43)
A cold light reflecting in your eyes
A deceitful shine
The only difference is I see it this time

I wash my hands of this, I want no part of this
Still the taste from the last Judas kiss
Is burning on my lips

Lying, conniving
Endless machination

You supplied both hammer and nails
And staged your own crucifiction
Truth is tainted with perversion

Lying, conniving
Endless machination

Lying, conniving
Relentless machination

No sympathy, no not from me

I wash my hands of this, I want no part of this
Still the taste from the last Judas kiss
Is burning on my lips
Burning on my lips
6. Manifestations Obscure (4:54)
Abstract patterns, thoughts are running rampant
Varying in its manifestations obscure
Leading me towards the unknown
To the strangest places, places I've never been
before

Headed for an inevitable fall
Time ticking away fast
Trapped inside the cathedral of doom
Waiting for the walls to cave in

Licking the root of the worlds discontent
Within a silent second, a calm catastrophe
The sinner inside will never repent
When the wickedness is flowing free

Headed for an inevitable fall
Time ticking away fast
Trapped inside the cathedral of doom
Waiting for the walls to cave in, to finally collapse

The sinner inside will never repent
When the wickedness is flowing free

Headed for an inevitable fall
Time ticking away fast
Trapped inside the cathedral of doom
Waiting for the walls to cave in

Unable to stem the rush of the torrent
Unable to find the cure
The face of evil that adorns the sky
Spitting out its poison, its manifestations obscure
7. Perennial Movement II (4:14)
I've been to hell and back again
and it was paradise
I saw foe and I saw friend
in her emerald green eyes
I witnessed darkness entwined
in the brightest shining light
And days begging for night

And I missed her, each new dawn, alone

Humble wishes inhabit the scream
and I do remember
Remnants of a dying dream so sweet
and so tender
Was the experience real or did I invent her

Yet I'll miss her, each new dawn, alone

Like a white feathered wing
sweeping over my face
Where secrets did spring
now swiftly replaced
I can't recall the time or the place

But I'll miss her, each new dawn, alone
8. Frayed Wings (5:20)
My thoughts are corrupted
These words do not ring true
An old recording interrupted
It dawned on me it's you

Who knew that we were strangers
Who knew

I believe I've turned a corner
Insubstantial at first glance
Shedding the costume of the mourner
And that same old song and dance

There will be changes
Paired with an objective stance

I'm no longer shackled to their plight
New visions beginning to take flight

Unknown emotions live inside of me
Born again the frayed wings healed

I see new doors opening
And I know where they lead
The end is a beginning
Born again the frayed wings healed

Who knew that we were strangers
Who knew

Born again the frayed wings healed
9. Beyond Salvation (7:47)
I sense something that wasn't there before
A presence of some kind and the darkness falls

Crept into your very being
Crept into your mind, deceiving you

Was the battle over before it had begun
Are you still convinced that nothing can be done
When it came, did you welcome the change
The rush of power, right before it all turned sour

Your savage streak, has grown strong
Has it taken over, are you beyond salvation

Is it over now is it beyond your control
You are lost if you surrender your soul
Tell me when it came, first pleasure then pain
A monster was born, your old self torn

Your savage streak, has grown strong
Has it taken over, are you beyond salvation

Your dark side came alive
Introduced you to sin
Your dark side came alive
Because the tempter hides within

Within us all

Your savage streak, has grown strong
Has it taken over, has it won
Your savage streak, has grown strong
Taken over, you are beyond salvation
10. My Spirits Fail (6:35)
Shadows rise in my valley of hope
And I provide the hangmans rope
I know that I am bound to lose
So I stick my head into his noose

Why can't I believe, when I know there must be
A chance to prevail
My spirits fail

The soul of desire distraught
A futile fight has been fought
The fear of failure and defeat
Is now the captain of my dreams

Why can't I believe, when I know there must be
A chance to prevail
My spirits fail

The quiet skies turn dark
Like blood-drops from a blackened heart
I'm not prepared for this
For the unimaginable abyss

Why can't I believe, when I know there must be
A chance to prevail
My spirits fail
11. Havoc (6:45)
Immersed in a surreal emptiness
I felt nothing and that became a cold caress

Havoc inside, the roving eye
Can't see what's going on

Havoc inside, it won't subside
Someone tell me, where did I go wrong?

What did I do wrong?

Now I'm slowly sinking into a deep distress
Pressure's building up and my thoughts digress

Anger riots in my voice, all consuming
It limits actions limits choice and distorts the
minds construing

Havoc inside, the roving eye
Can't see what's going on
Havoc inside, it won't subside
Someone tell me, where did I go wrong?

What did I do wrong?

I'm somewhere in between the lost and found
Need to find a way to mend
my shattered confidence
This constant uncertainty
Wears me down and weakens my defence

Immersed in a surreal emptiness
I felt nothing and that became a cold caress
Trapped in a vicious circle with evermore unrest
What could save me and soothe the savage breast

Havoc inside, the roving eye
Can't see what's going on
Havoc inside, it won't subside
Someone tell me, where did I go wrong?

What did I do wrong?
