Grab the last beams of hope Piercing through this thunderous sky The horsemen are riding out Can’t you hear the end is nigh Embrace this ray of light Through darkened skies it will appear The horsemen are riding out Can’t you see the end is near The apocalypse, the end of times Mankind is lost, we pay for our crimes The sound of galloping, the riders cry The final hour, we all will die The rider white with bow and crown The pestilence that will bring us down The rider red, sword held high Brings us war in which we die The rider black, scales in hand The famine that’ll be our end The pale rider, reaper named death Our final hour, our dying breath Grab the last beams of hope Piercing through this thunderous sky The horsemen are riding out Can’t you hear the end is nigh Embrace this ray of light Through darkened skies it will appear The horsemen are riding out Can’t you see the end is near

Aeons of misery Mourn the death of Gaia Pitch-black destiny Praise the death of Man Nations built with arrogance Nations decline from ignorance Nations undermined by belligerence In the end it makes no difference Aeons of misery Mourn the death of Gaia Pitch-black destiny Praise the death of Man Refuse to learn from the lessons from the past Take a look at what mankind has become All these ignorant thoughts, they do not last The wounds within this world can’t be undone This world is crying, this world is bleeding It is screaming in tremendous pain Mankind is too blind to see this Now watch this world burning in flames Nations built with arrogance Nations decline from ignorance Nations undermined by belligerence In the end it makes no difference Aeons of misery Mourn the death of Gaia Pitch-black destiny Praise the death of Man

Here I am all alone In an endless universe I cannot move my brittle bones It feels like I am cursed In shackles I am trapped Barbed wire around my heart My numb soul can’t adapt To this life that’s falling apart The balance is disrupted Trembled with fear I’m on this cord My mind is corrupted I’m falling off the edge of a sword I gave up resistance Staring into desolate skies Shackled to this desperate life Fooled by my own lies And there’s no other truth There is just my own Yet I can’t see clear I’m stuck and dying all alone I can’t take these shackles away I cannot live, I cannot live another day Lost and alone in endless skies I am stuck in my own eternity To suffer forever will be my destiny Lost and alone until the day I die

It’s hard to look back now Of what was real the things we had When all seemed fine It’s not on me You crossed that line I did my time I know I am the one to blame I still can hear you cry I know I caused this pain (And) I never even tried Now that you are gone My life goes on I won’t look back Cause I’ll be fine It’s not on me It’s not my crime I did my time To solve what I did cause To make right what I did wrong There’s only me you can blame In hell is where I belong The sparkle in your eyes just disappeared A shadow cast upon your life The glint I saw came from the tears You shed because of my lies It is my fault, I did you harm And I never even cared It’s all on me, I denied your trust I understand you wish me dead And I searched for purity… deep within my soul Only to find demons… demons that took control that caused me to do these things things that caused this pain and now nothing will never ever be the same I know I am the one to blame I still can hear you cry I know I caused this pain And I never even tried It’s hard to look back now Of what was real the things we had When all seemed fine It’s not on me You crossed that line I did my time Please don’t look back I crossed that line Your life goes on You have done your time Now that you are gone My life goes on I won’t look back Cause I’ll be fine It’s not on me It’s not my crime I did my time

I’m awake, why can’t I sleep? What are these pallid visions I see? Shadowghosts that haunt me? It’s just smoke and mirrors Illusions that trick your mind There’s nothing that can hurt you Don’t worry, now sleep tight Hold back your tears You’ve got to stay strong It’s just smoke and mirrors You just have to play along It’s just smoke and mirrors Illusions that trick your mind There’s nothing that can hurt you Don’t worry, now sleep tight I’ll stay right beside you These monsters I will fight Wide awake, I still can’t sleep What are these pallid visions I see? Shadowghosts that haunt me? It’s just smoke and mirrors Illusions that trick your mind There’s nothing that can hurt you Don’t worry, now sleep tight I’ll stay right beside you These monsters I will fight I’ll make sure they won’t bite
7.
Like a flower in the desert, yearning for a drop of rain Lost and so lonely, I cannot share the pain When no-one’s there to hear me cry, no-one’s there to see my tears No-one else is left behind Why can’t I just disappear? There is all this space but no room for me I feel so out of place I cry in disbelief it hurts to be alone It all makes no sense to me All I want, all I want is to leave Like a snowflake in summer, I vanish into thin air Lost and so lonely, it all seems so unfair There’s no-one to talk to, no-one I can hear There are no thoughts to be shared Please make me disappear Like an ocean without water Like a forest without trees Life without a beating heart A lock without the keys Like mourning without grief Truth without lies Like faith without a God Like seeing without eyes I am defeated, ripped and torn I wish I was never born
8.
Solid ground swept away underneath me Do I dream? Into a pitch-black abyss I fall Is it real? What I see, what does it mean? Is this something I can believe? Does my mind play tricks on me? Are these nightmares while I sleep? My inner thoughts and feelings disappear Do I dream? I vanish into these depths beyond Is it real? What I see, what does it mean? Is this something I can believe? Does my mind play tricks on me? Are these nightmares while I sleep? I'm loss for words as my life crumbles It feels like I'm fading away I can't run or walk, I just stumble Will I make it to the end of day What I see, I know what it means I lost my ground Something you better believe

about

Dutch death/doom metal legends OFFICIUM TRISTE, who have been around for 25 years, are back with their sixth full length album titled 'The Death of Gaia'. They're only wiser with age, for the music is just as evocative as always if not more this time around, with better arrangements and variations spread across the album. Their music has this gentle yet overwhelming approach that will leave you in complete tatters by the time it's done. It's beautifully hinging on this balance they've perfected over decades between plaintive melodies and wretched heaviness. Additional instruments such as piano, violin and cello have been brought in and even several guest vocals to lend to this an epic air, further entrenching their mastery over this form of poignant music. For this album they've employed the services of Chris Smith (Grey Aria Design Studio) for the vibrant artwork and of Greg Chandler (ESOTERIC) where mastering is concerned, ensuring that everything is done just the way it was meant to be. 'The Death of Gaia' is the pinnacle of the band's illustrious career and sets new standards even now for others to look up to.
