The air is cold and thin In the dead of winter night A woman standing still In a dress of purest white Her beauty was unmatched But her heart was black as coal A gorgeous outer shell To a body with no soul I woke up to her touch each and every day Her skin changed precious white to a dismal dying grey Unlatched the golden clasp that held her rotting cloak And from the heartless void poured a putrid poison smoke I fell through the trees My body lurched as I hit the forest floor I fell to my knees All hope was gone, faith abandoned I woke up to her touch each and every day Her eyes changed deepest blue to a grim and empty grey The spirit left my body And walked into the sun Sorceress, Spell-weaver Masterful deceiver Shameless lie believer Punishment receiver
I manifest myself in your nightmares A frigid sweat drips burning in your eyes Slow death for a man who tells many secrets Even slower for the man who tells only lies The wicked blade runs down your spine A skulking shadow of fear Climb the branches of your family tree And count the number still alive Flames of time burn the broken limbs And burn the leaves of those who've died Now the blood flows into my hands The mortal coil rests in my palm A lake of fire Blood flows into the stream Hell awaits the sinners, but earth contains the slaves Servants of war, hate and bias to blame Throughout mankind one thing remains the same You will die and fear me
From the top of this tower I've watched it for so long Aeons corrupted as the world rots away A shade of indifference casts forth reflections A mirror of thought, abandoned and destroyed Refuge of loneliness, barren and forlorn Sculptor divine, who carves a black hole They'll come back screaming, demented and deranged Lurk in the shadows malicious man from the sky Forging nothingness since the time when stars were born You look down on us until the world dies Your grand creation did nothing but damn us all You painted the earth with the blood of every man There's no room for hope when looking through the eyes of death We'll all be consumed, wanderers of the void You reform the clouds to show a glimpse of heaven You'll show no mercy, architect of the void. I will journey past the stars to find you I know you will be there waiting You have answers that will tell us why This world is filled with nothing but lies
As I walked through the void I put all fears aside Hoping to find what made The azure unclouded sky Oh grand pantheon Where have you gone? A crowd stands before me They're all dressed in black One man moved before me His hands held the stars Right before my eyes I watched him as he ripped the world Such a feeble thing is man In the mercy of a god The wisdom we've repressed No reason comes to mind I've been longing... for what, I don't know A grim solitude dismantles my soul I want everything, the world and the sun To know how it was made and why!?
