Track Name: No Hope
I’m lying here in a bed so cold
I don’t know where you are
Something you never told
You’ve never told

I wonder what happened to you
As I dream these ghastly dreams
I can’t believe this is true
Can’t believe it’s true

As I sleep I feel the demons at my side
Showing sights of crimson rain
And faces of angels that cried
Black tears of sorrow and of pain

Don’t know what to make,
of these dreams
to see this hopeless gleam,
I fear for the worst
and question myself
It all feels like a curse

As I sleep I feel so bad
These thoughts I truly dread
Chaos visions in my head

I fear for the worst
and question myself
It all feels like a curse

I’m still lying in my bed so cold
There’s no sign of you
Something you’ve never told
You’ve never told
No sign of hope
There’s no hope
Track Name: Divinity
A sparkle in this chaos ridden infinity
The light, my goddess, ultimate divinity

Draped with velvet and silk
She provides honey and milk
Heart and soul I sacrifice
The love for you never dies

You're my life
I realise
You're so fine
You are divine

Divine woman you stole my heart
Other gods I will discard
You are the one I will serve
I bow for your shapes and curves
Entangled we reach our paradise
A garden of eden behind our eyes
Fulfilled with lust and desire
My veins burn, my heart is on fire

Oh my goddess what have you done to me
My love for you, it shall forever be.
Track Name: My Charcoal Heart (acoustic version)
My heart is in pain
the feelings for you won't be the same

My heart a diamond it won't be
Black like coal, all you will see
The pain from feelings of disgust
What once was love is blown away like dust

My heart black as night
Tears like tar from my eyes
Venom pumping through my veins
When I speak my words are like flames

My heart a diamond it won't be
Black like coal, all you will see
The pain from feelings of disgust
What once was love is blown away like dust

All because of the way I've been treated
I have been deceived
You cheated on me
From the start

Now I've got a charcoal heart
My heart, black as night
Tears like tar from my eyes
The result of your goddamn lies
Track Name: Fading Like A Dying Candle
Here I sit in this room,
staring at this burning candle.
That is my life, that is my doom.
The loneliness I cannot handle.
I'm fading like a dying candle.

Fade......
Fade away .....
Like a dying candle.....

The flame in my soul is fading away.
No place on earth left for me to stay.
From light to black through veils of grey.
As the candle burning bright dies today.

This empty room where I sit,
staring at this dying candle.
A piece of wax, that I've lit.
Reflects the life I cannot handle.
I'm dying like a fading candle.

Fade....
Fade away.....
Like a dying candle....
Fade away...................................
Track Name: Downfall (Through Veils Of Grey)
The flame in my soul has faded away.
Into blackness I fall through veils of grey.
Through a tunnel filled with mist.
I realise my life is over, I no longer exist.
Looking into the distance I see no light.
In the everdark my soul eternally hides.
Transfixed by the thought if this is my hell.
Deep down in the everynothing I fell.

Into Blackness

Confused....I realise I already went through hell
while living in an empty room....
Confused....with everything in the outside world
behind the walls where I sat staring at a dying candle.

I'm falling forever!!!!!!

The flame in my soul has faded away.
Into blackness I fall through veils of grey.
Through a tunnel filled with mist.
I realise my life is over, I no longer exist.
Looking into the distance I see no light.
In the everdark my soul eternally hides.
Transfixed by the thought if this is my hell.
Deep down in the everynothing I fell.
Track Name: Intro - Officium Triste (Part II)
Moribundus dempte fine
Quam mox coctum est prandium
Mente vix consto
Track Name: Mountains Of Depressiveness
A land with mountains of depressiveness.

Peaks of black, touch the sky.
Surrounded by fog, no signs of life.

Living a life of subconsciousness,
In these mountains of depressiveness.

A land with mountains of depressiveness.

This mysteryworld, crystalized with frost.
It makes you feel, as if you're lost.
This landscape in your dreams,
Symbolising your grief.
Days controlled by depression,
Is what your life receives.

Living a life of subsconsciousness,
In these mountains of depressiveness.
Track Name: Dreams Of Sorrow
As you sleep, your subconsciousness reigns.
Visions of misery, sorrow and pain.
Blackened sky, mournfull spheres.
People drowning in a flood of tears.

Fear of nighttime, it's time to sleep.
Sandman comes, no time to weep.
Hope you'll wake up alive tomorrow.
Surviving again these dreams of sorrow.

As you sleep, your mind falls deeper.
Visions of death, the grim reaper.
Black plague, hunger and hate.
Mortal people this is your fate.

As you sleep, you dream of fear.
Visions of sorrow, visions are clear.
Blackened earth, world of death.
As you breathe, your final breath.

Dreaming about sorrow, the nightmares of life.
No more sleep
being awake is being alive.
