High hopes of a prodigious race The marvellous splendours of death and decay Scriptures engraved on stone tablets of time Buried in the dirt and dug up again The screaming of melancholic heart To witness the rapture - the twist of a tongue Is it a free ride to the land of no tomorrow? To dampen the desert aching in chest? There is no explanation No sanctity to be found No knowledge nor wisdom derive from the stillness of time No need to exalt the prophet's not so meticulous texts But we so desperately strive to be ruled and despotism… Despotism seems like martyr's hand stretching out the furthest Like a beaten dog with a collar who kneels down by a clenching fist But gets up again humble and loyal We kick the dirt in the ground just to raise dust Meaningless actions of hopelessness There is no significant meaning in wealth, virtue and innocence No significant meaning when eyes are tools of the blind All wisdom is hanging from gallows and out of reach Every stone that we turn, every building we build Every chapter we write, every stellar dream that we have It feels like when we are through with ourselves Every monument and every golden statue will stand galore Mocking at our profound impression we held so dear

I Am 07:37
I was there when universe gave birth I was there when time was taking form I saw the first light manifesting from primeval darkness I rode on that first star I witnessed the splendours of creation I sweep through planes I am out of sight and out of reach I breathe eternity and I am ever-present I am perpetual My existence is unparalleled There is no life without me I spew ash where life had grown I see no good and seek no evil I see all and everything My eyes are empty, I watch from cosmos I am bound by no time and no dimension is my home I am cold wind that blows I am forest that shrieks for thousand years I am thunder in the sky I am mountains I am torrent rushing through space I am alone, followed by grief I take no prisoners I grant no wishes You will never feel me, touch me, deny me You will never hear me call your name You'll never see me when I come I move with the sound of silence I am the question answered I am the bringer of the end I am Death

Rime 06:07
She is the night and the silhouette of my dreams Bringing the wind of prosperity to calm my nature Her kiss so cold, I could feel the pain of many who she kissed before She ices my passion and my flame Mesmerizes me with her dance as a snake, its pray She holds my hand and takes me to the abyss And lets me watch the beauty of her destruction Crows shall carry my name among the living Among those who I left behind Hear their cry Steps are slow I fight my sickness as I wander through her frozen tears Body is cold, fingers black and numb Waiting for the eternal sleep, for her to cover me Gasping for air and screaming

Turn around, do you see their deceit? All the faces numb and scornful When the mind is ill and the will long gone It's a lingering death that binds them all Hell followed Walk of atonement never done Hell followed Walk of atonement never done

There is no doubt of men's frivolity No sincere exclaims in delight No valid hope transcends the fences of fear It’s so convenient to hold men in distraught Conformed revelations to be consumed and tailored to fit Profound aesthetics when maggots eat your corpse Elaborate style of writing - just believe what I say Hope is an extension to suffering False oath as common as night and day becomes Temporary exhibition in golden halls of dreams Exemplary punishment to see the sight of Elysium The faceless God is gloating in their faces And yet they marvel and raise their fingers up Extending all but the one that matters Nothing is as unambiguous as it seems As above, so below And when earth is without form and endless void is all there is When showers of sand have no desert left to settle When I is destroyed and there is no we Daath dwellers rejoice As all masks are cast aside and all eyes wide open Then the Abyss becomes visible through the gaps of existence
6.
Forsaken times Forsaken feelings In the presence of misconception The dead sleep with their eyes open The reflection in the river No self-control, no self-restraint You will be no judge The dead sleep with their eyes open When you sleep And when you dream You always see them staring The dead sleep with their eyes open Alone, hidden in the shadows The dead sleep… Alone, hidden in the shadows With their eyes open… In the final hour When the void begins to widen Remember… The dead sleep with their eyes open

Night 06:42
Night! Oh marvellous silence, prime, untamed, Untouched, enchanted So full of grace Silent traveller on never-ending line it treads It casts no shadow, bears no light Peaceful, calm, above and beyond Never starts, never ends, continuous Lonesome gleam of moon dances in the night Multitude of stars, immeasurably distant Galaxies on the farthest reaches of the cosmos You embrace it all so lightly, as I stare in awe Night! Oh marvellous silence, prime, untamed, Untouched and enchanted So full of grace Creatures of the night – Nocturnal sensation Archaic magic unified – Nocturnal sensation Secrets of the night – Nocturnal sensation Horror mystified – Nocturnal sensation Nocturnal sensation…
