Origin 02:06
Don't let the sun go down in your heart, my child Lest fear and woe follow in your wake

Certain poetry in past view of the world An oeuvre beneath my talents, yet above my morals Ceased are the days of waste for I represent myself All extremes I endorse as I move from reticence to clamor Betwixt those two verges, a ghost appears And her eyes now glare in moonlight Reflecting the passion felt once before In the midst of crusts of snow A sight of otherworldly glow An argent dirk she draws from my chest Which she hands to me No words she speaks, no words she yearns for The sharpened steel I grip, as I brace for a trade of blows I, I think I feel nothing as your blade's touch Carves a slit into my trachea But the eyes still sway in moonlight Reflecting the passion felt once before In the midst of crusts of snow A sight of otherworldly glow Our blood blends with the silver soil And dream of stars rewinds the hours to foregone days of ours Forging paradigms of false Latching weapons from my sight Dying won't atone these deeds For sowed are the vilest of seeds Resting in her hand, a blade of virtue Piercing my skin of evil, a cry, an unsought reprisal Let us both die, the blood is painting the walls Ardent exiles, now we both have became Dying misfits, the pain is weighting too much No more struggle, the dream returns: In this chamber beneath the quilts Hands sleep together and wait this night Soundless winter behind the walls Kindled are the hours in this new abode And the eyes still glare in moonlight Reflecting the passion I still feel now In the midst of crusts of snow A sight of otherworldly glow Her figure eerie yet sublime A spectacle to be witnessed for a lifetime

Undawning 03:56
All you create will end forgotten From time to time my nemesis speaks words feared by many But in the end, the only timid one is I, the rationalist among the frivolous Run farther; the revenants are drawing near Here I stand dreading for the day, the day that eventually comes And it will be my last Torment through the times countless As mind breaks from world's soundness But I will have no time to weep For I fall in dreamless sleep From time to time my nemesis speaks: "All you create will end forgotten" The works made by gods are not for me to keep As my mind, my oneself, my heart Will rot with my corpse My lifeless corpse Breathe the morning sun For this one last time in here before the lights fade away Lush heath unfolds the end of times for soul Cast away are my hours in this life fading out Undawning For all these years, it has only been a word for me

I told myself to never stray indoctrinated by their words I push the verge of nature by extirpating my ideals But how can I look at myself after ceasing to fare well? I cannot find the answer all by myself I will not thrive ere my augury I still dream of the days when I could deliver myself But somehow all the pain has not faded away I somehow ought to leave but I still ought to stay With no regrets nor fear of dying, falling, stalling I seek to find the day I abandon all the thoughts about my view of the world By forever staying the same as I’ve always been But I do not search for the past, I seek for nothing higher I just want to demand myself to relish the verity Will I ever be free from the enticements Which expect me to astray, to choose the facile path? So I wish to search for tomorrow, cadaver born of the past And the hourglass of times bereaves from me Constellations are falling into the sea in which the hubrises dwell To the dark waters I descend, from the firmament I cast myself I abandon all the thoughts about my view of the world By forever staying the same as I’ve always been But I do not search for the past, I seek for nothing higher I just want to redeem myself by finding the answers Will I ever be free from the enticements Which expect me to astray, to choose the facile path? So I see the colours which are yet to fade And I am searching for something brighter Searching - searching Never thanked for what I had, I will lose it all, it all I dreamt for all the beauty which I never could have Every day seems so empty, every night so dull But my dreams still carry me to atone myself.

Dualism 04:42
My right hand gave a letter to him Written in poetic words, phrases In a language of other worlds My left hand gave a letter to him Written with love, devotion, kinship With the progeny of days destined Two shaded figures amble before my eyes A poetic unity, but known not to last And beatific scenery wilting as they pace Inharmony pulsing as if a heartbeat Before me the paths unveil conflicted Free yet aimless these apparitions lie As I fight back the fate that befell them Midst the endless thoughts within my scarred mind For long have I known one of them dies young The discordances deepen for they’re never truly free And through every waking second the strife is drawing near Neath the lineament of the wavering tree line They both know these hours are lies which all must be burned Safe havens turn to dust Free yet aimless these apparitions lie As I fight back the fate that befell them But deep down I know the lack of all hope For no matter which one I choose I will die alone

Departure 02:33
Stay with me for a while Recite this single verse with me With me I feel for you I fear for you, my child She leaves too early No more endeavours, my child Leave this one last line for me For me I feel for you I fear for you, my child She dies too early

A timeless seer emerged from beyond A god through many lives, he came to tell the truths "Bespeak, my child, for I know your future Not a sheen fate you carry, an apathy that will befall thee Like to everyone else before you" And when I reached my dawning I felt nothing, nothing at all I breached the gates of longing the first time forever Father, don't amend me for I'm drowning all the time An image of tragedy, all I wish is to go home A timeless seer, a god seen once before I reject you this time and all that you speak of Frantic search through these hours of deceit Yet I reached nothing but this diseased state of mind And I head for the torchlight as the landscape dies I see the world through the eyes of a madman And I fear for what I might become As my golden means are fragile I run away from the grayness A void filled with small glimmers of hope The hope which I now have, the hope which I'm doomed to give away When I reached my dawning I felt nothing, nothing at all I breached the gates of longing the first time forever Thoughts I cannot control, please rid me of this disease Sanity this world, this world stole from me When I reached my dawning I felt nothing, nothing at all I breached the gates of longing the first time forever Father, don't amend me for I'm drowning all the time An epigraph of woe written before I was born I grew too old too young, I stayed too young too old All alone in silence, all these thoughts haunt like demons

I will betray the world but not my own kin I sway the water away cut my hand and bleed Today, every day I see the clarity fade shrouded in the thoughts of doubt I have all the world on my shoulders but none of the riches they bear And I’ll die for my sins the sins the world made for me Ripping the canvas of law and virtue with my rusted blades When the stars align and my dreams become true Liberation in death let the lies cut deeper Curse this world and its own child who I once were Today, every day I see the clarity fade shrouded in the thoughts of doubt I bury the words they say, my lament in chaos Yet the edicts of false pour through the soil, and break the silence I have all the world on my shoulders but none of the riches they bear An oeuvre as dark as my soul as I live under the shade of the darker sun I am my own god, I need no one else to find the truth Did I choose to die or choose what they did for me?

Ordeal 15:01
[I - The Act] I am the architect murderer of intrinsic values Poet of the unknown tongues the only witness of the deities’ visions And I hear the assailants drawing nigh Breaching through these gates of old Inside these halls of dying stone, a summoning of incantation. A cosmic beast emerging; I know the answers now Timeless hunter, the beast of scourge Will not let the images die in vain A perfect window of opportunity as no man could suspect my actions to come A plot forged in fear of casualties, in fear of the end, the end of myself But the parasites crawl inside the fragile gestalt I shaped With these thoughtful acts of violent rage I will save us from the towering waves A true display of rational surmise Ending the chapter too blithe and naïve Please, discern that I won’t feel touched as these actions craft my fate Fear not these wayfaring forces which you are to outsmart Let the poison seep away let the hunter beast sleep within Without the sordid pleas I decry all that I've rid And I reach further towards the stars Without the lament diseased I harvest what I once sowed And let the fate unfold I let the fate unfold I can uphold this chaos [II - The Doubt] Please, design me for these decaying scenes My hours without the sun All I want is answers Peripheries of power dying in these hands of mine Hands covered in blood of the once-verdant life As the structures fail, as the pillars crumble beneath I’m forced to forget these methods, procedures honed by the past I pay the progress with my blood Progress abandoned in the end When all I hear and all I see is nothing but veils, veils in the night I’m treading onward with desperate pace, falling over time and time again When everything's lost I rebuild it all To keep this passion inbound I have to fight all alone As my life is foreshadowed by the dying days By the dying days [III - The Resolution] Then I saw myself beyond the wall “This is no wall for the barriers lie inside your head” Standing on the crossroads I wish to return home “Are you sure you want to die? For I know you cannot live without me” The archives must never be burned, these books and scriptures of old Fear not these waves of endless ocean, fear not their towering figures Don’t let the sun go down in your heart, my child Lest fear and woe follow in your wake But we all will drown [IV - The Memory] These words I've once heard before in childhood Words I once said to myself, the future me: “Don’t let the sun go down in your heart, my child Lest fear and woe follow in your wake”
