Around my eyes There is a dense fog It takes familiar shapes. Images of old. It allows no light to pass but a fissure which lights a single path covered in thorns. Α phantasm is walking Adorn in the colours of the Last Godess. Journeying in Piligrimage For a Duty, ancient and ideal. To all that is beyond the blue sky. Into the darkness of its void It has hidden seeds and soil Α dreamworld Made of flesh and bone. A white stone, hidden in the night Glares from outside the road. But, thorns are standing in the way. Cursed is whoever trespasses. How to tell an aching soul Το put salt in its wound How to tell it to hold on.. "Look straight ahead and do my bidding" "It is only I that has ever known you, to comply is all I ask" How many times have I been here before? The only thing here is a Chasm deep as the one I have returned from. I remember now my face The one I lost, and the one I wanted to Make And the comfort of the bottom Seems choking. Onto the white stone, there is only a blade which awaits. To paint it with red, deep and fiery. Coming out from within. Enter me, remove hearth and fear So that there's space for chaos and immensity "The pain from which you have ran away, you should learn to seek." Destroy my Bonds. Carve my Name. "Step on this soil that gave birth to you with boldness And only when Feeling it, you should look to the stars up high!" "You, who has been the winner in the most primordial of battles For whom the planets have conspired You have a sacred Duty, to light every Fire that's hidden inside Το live, to know, to give birth" I have a soul, I have a name, I have a heart I have now Flesh Ι am the Wind, I am the Sea, I am the Earth I am everything I want to be
I Written in oaken letters Names, symbols and words Dancing their beautiful daughters Mirads of meanings and thoughts Behind the color of day Inside the ashen grey stone There sleeps the rememberance of a promise You know it too It travels with the birds And if my heart sounds at nothing Cursed and deathlike And if I forget my blood An offering to the wild And if I forget my visage Sacrifice, blade & fire My mirror is the restless sea Debris that wanders shaplessly Flows like metal in primordial shape Your daughter named Hope Behind the clouds Mourning is my poetry And mourning my anger also Mourning is my poerty I cut off my own head II The flesh is formed by platan leaves And with water it does take root My corpse is smiling a Inside my mouth Black fruit is growing Old stone, cold, ancient From the depths it emerges Death is alive And my soul is young I grew tired too early And I forgot my name I beg pardon to my visage And beg forgiveness from my child It is not my time to live But neither is it to die Only within these walls in silence To sing III Only by the horrid scream Does the blind stone awaken The colorless yesterday Head flowing with blood Head living and white The eyes are gazing outwards They see no lie The lie is now dead And it has died The eyes search Away from the inside My eyes are gazing outwards Away from me Away from me The light of sight is searching I have died But it was a lie
