Track Name: Life Is On the Wane
When I woke in the cold and the dark
A pestilent wind had unfurled
To scatter the ashes of man
And carry the smoke around the grim world.

Beneath a welkin black with ashes,
Wherein the sun forsakes to rise,
I have wandered for so long
And remembered ravens in the blue and cloudless skies.

Sickening rain begrimes my head.
Long ago I cast my mask among the dead.

The road through the cold and the dark
Stinks of scorched flesh and of rot.
Under black respirators
Dark orbits hold eyes forsaken by God.

Where should I go when the dark is ominpresent
And light is on the wane?
I am setting forth to somewhere, to nowhere,
As I wander in vain.

I am inhaling the darkness, inhaling the cold,
Inhaling the ashes, inhaling the smoke,
Exhaling the fine mist of blood
That dissolves in nothingness like hope.

Where should I stay when death is omnipresent
And life is on the wane?
I am setting forth to somewhere, to nowhere,
Unable to remain.

The cloak of the cold and the dark
Covers every thought.
Light there is little, life there is less
And hope, hope there is nought.
There is smoke in the cold and the dark,
And the dark, the dark has no name.
Yet it is my companion here
Where no light shall remain and all life is on the wane.
Track Name: Godless
Crumbling monuments,
Epitaphs erased by the ravages of time.
Remembrance withers
Under ashes, dirt and grime.

Once I am gone no grave will bear my name.
Once I am gone no knells will chime.
All churches burnt, all steeples collapsed.
The dark is bare of anything divine.

No Heaven, no angels, no God -
Just this world succumbed to rot.

All prayers were spoken unheard
And all holiness has come undone
As all else upon this world
That is dying in the absence of the sun.

All those that I remember,
All those that I forgot
Are dead and gone for evermore,
Gone before, to rot - in the absence of God.

I will not be remembered,
I will not be forgotten,
For only I remember
Or forget the dead and rotten.

Scorched and blackened angels
With faces numb and cold
Stare with motionless eyes,
Unable to see what I behold.
I behold the nothingness,
The great and godless darkness to come.
Nothingness lies
Beyond the darkest thoughts I cannot shun.

Upon this barren globe
I will wander – godless
Beneath a sooted cloak
Of darkness, deep and godless.
Godless...
Until the darkness takes me.
I will wander - godless.
Until my breath forsakes me
And the darkness takes me – godless..
Track Name: The Indifferent Sun
The indifferent sun never shows,
Dwells beyond the grey murk, unseen,
Like a ghost that hides in the shadows
Of a memory recalled in a dream.

The world dies but the sun does not care,
Does not shine on the wastelands of nowhere
Which I cross on my way to (the non-existent) hell knows where
Expecting nothing but nothingness there.
The indifferent sun
Shall vanish with me in the darkness to come.
Come, darkness come!
Make me forget the indifferent sun.

The indifferent sun never shows.
Too far away, far too feebly, it shines.
Light fails to pervade the ethereal ashes
Which darken this world that declines.

I do not search for the sun anymore.
Hope went with my shadow long before.

The indifferent sun
Shall vanish with me in the darkness to come.
Come, darkness come!
Make me forget the indifferent sun.

The dusk of the world has begun
And the ultimate end approaches apace.
I will vanish, at last, at the end of all days,
Vanish, alone, in the darkness to come.

The indifferent sun
Shall vanish with me in the darkness to come.
Come, darkness come!
Make me forget the indifferent sun.
Come, Darkness come!
Track Name: A Hundred Ropes
Gloomy, gloomy lies the orchard,
Full of dead and crippled trees.
A hundred ropes are wound around a hundred throats
Of those who sensed the darkness at the end of vain belief.

They came here sick and thin as death
To die before the whole world ends.
The rotten fruits of hopelessness
Disperse the stank of pestilence.

In vain they sought the light of god
As above is but the dark that conquers all.
There is no “beyond the veil”.
There only is “beneath the pall”.

Bereft of goddesses and gods,
Of saviours and saints,
This world drifts into nothingness
And the nameless dark descends.

There is darkness at the end of the tunnel.
Salvation is a fabled myth.
They all set forth to nowhere.
They only ceased to exist.

Gloomy, gloomy lies the orchard,
Full in bloom of putrid grief.
A hundred ropes are wound around a hundred throats
Of those who sensed the darkness at the end of vain belief.

Ashes cling to lifeless flesh
As does darkness to the world that ends
While I am setting forth again
And the nameless dark descends.
Track Name: The Nameless Dark
A tremor born in the earth
Shattered a dream of the past
When the day had an orb
And the night had a welkin of stars.

On the eve of the end
I watched the orb of day descend.
I only knew about true darkness
When I did not see the sun again.
It is dark and growing darker.
Memories of the sun evanesce.
With the fading of every night
The light of day becomes less... and less....

The sun moved unseen
Beyond the dark, pestilent veil.
The day reached its end
Yet its light was but gloomy and frail.

The nameless dark...
The nameless dark descends to enshroud
The dying world and me.
The nameless dark...
The nameless dark descends to entomb
The dying world and me.

On the eve of the end
I watched the orb of day descend.
I only knew about true darkness
When I did not see the sun again.

It is cold and growing colder
As the world slowly dies.
With the fading of every night
More darkness remains in the skies.

The moon rose unseen
Beyond the black, pestilent pall.
The nameless dark takes all light.
The nameless dark conquers all.

The nameless dark...
The nameless dark descends to enshroud
The dying world and me.
The nameless dark...
The nameless dark descends to entomb
The dying world and me.
Track Name: Oneiric
I entered a tunnel to rest and to sleep
And maybe to dream of the sun and the past.
The outer world moans under siege by decay,
Growing cold in the darkness devoid of all stars.

The decay of the world resounds in this tunnel
That stretches all crumbling and dark like a dream,
A dream I dreamt, a dream of the end,
Set after the clocks stopped at 1:17.

I reached for the light at the end of the tunnel,
Yet the further I walked the weaker it grew.
All I reached was a world ere its ultimate end,
Lying scorched `neath a welkin which lets no hope through.
The light was the blaze which devoured all hope
And gave birth to the dark which was given no name,
Which rose from the fire with wings of thick smoke
To darken a world never meant to remain.

Amid the vast mayhem, at one with the reek,
Something was shifting from shadow to shape.
It stared at me, stared at me, whispered:”Now sleep”,
While I writhed in the darkness and tried to awake.
Track Name: Blood and Ashes
Through this dismal industrial landscape of old
Howl the grim and carnivorous winds,
Like freezing black lungs that exhale the decay
And the dirt of the world going down.

The bread which I ate and the wine which I drank
Were the flesh and the blood of the carrion crows
That succumbed to starvation and died a slow death
In the dirt of the world going down.

Here in the dirt of the world going down
I am writhing in spasms and throes,
Caughing blood, caughing ashes
And spitting thick phlegm of both.

The blood I am coughing is feeding the dirt,
Seeping away in the grey
And leaving a darkening trail of the past
In the dirt of the world going down.
Track Name: Languor
Cold is the path through this forest of grime.
Black is the soil and the future ahead.
Pestilent winds whirl the ashes of time
And carry the dust of the dead.

My heartbeat resembles a low, distant knell
For I know that there is no beyond and no light,
That I shall go nowhere, not even to hell,
That I shall only cease to exist when I die tonight.

I am kneeling here, coughing amid the dead trees,
Bound to succumb, scenting blood on my breath.
Hardly able to breathe all the ashes and grief
I am waiting in languor, waiting for death.
Track Name: A Funeral Shroud Cast Upon the Late World
Once again...
I awoke in the cold and the dark
Though I thought that death had been nigh.
The void encloses my soul and my heart
And this desolate world gone by.

There is no light left, the world passed,
Total darkness unfurled
To last
Like a funeral shroud cast upon the late world.

Am I at one with the late world?
Do we share the same dead heart?
Am I at one with the darkness which unfurled?
Am I at one with the nameless dark?

Am I the nameless dark?
