Track Name: Eternal Sleep
Ground is cracking under my bare feet
Had to come wander through the night again
Morning has left its frost to tease me away, this lonely shadow
Under these evergreens no ray of sun will ever shine


Over me the tops so high, under me, ground so soft
Light fading away slowly crawling are shadows
Silently the ground whispers me, I feel I want to sleep
Forget all the sorrow's chains, leave this pain behind


Did I ever tell I regret everything I did
Only wish of mine, to get all that back
Weeping is the sky before us, I don't even care
The ground is calling me, for eternal sleep
Will a light ever come back to life of mine so gray
There's no time, there's no will, I fade away
Will you ever come back and say you loved me
Give me a spark before I fall asleep


The sky's stars, the moaning moon
Dark depths of this forest, my cradle
Falling, slowly
Shall I never share another tear


A new chance somewhere far away will it wait for me?
A new chance to suffer all these darkened days again
I don't need no empathy because this feels like a home
To the hands of mother earth I sink, spending a night



A night, an eternity...
Track Name: Time's Fleeing Days
I vanished in the midnight wind, beneath silver glare of hallowed moon
Pale mistress Death calmly grinned, and firmly held my hand too soon
Into the night, I quickly flew, as deep despair silently grew
Through these dusky forest flowing so I left my life behind



I feel my weakened strength regress, as I choke on my every breath
All I feel is cold inside, the cold that just won't let me die
In the groves, these dready woods, I quietly left my final groan
Silent is the land ahead, serene the dark waters



And now these silent lands, my home
As whistling wind in moonlight plays
Forever will my spirit roam
While quickly pass time's fleeing days
And now forgotten and all alone
As alone pines in silence stand
Forever these dusks my home
Without a noise pass time's fleeing days


Someday you'll walk this misty lane
Far past the clouds of Autumn skies
One day it will be you struggling
In the night sky, unknown beauty
Someday you'll walk this misty lane
Beneath the clouds of Autumn skies


And now these silent lands, my home
As whistling wind in moonlight plays
Forever will my spirit roam
While quickly pass time's fleeing days
And now forgotten and all alone
As alone pines in silence stand
Forever these dusks my home
Without a noise pass time's fleeing days
Track Name: Dusk To Dawn
I float in a pool of darkness as cold presses inside me
I am alone floating aimlessly, I reach away blindly
I ache in sorrow, I hunger to leave, to escape, to leave this prison
Nothing but darkness, a faint last hope, I know there is no escape


Shards of glass fall from the sky as I sit alone and cry
The shards cut in my skin and I know the groves are nigh
My blood soaks in the ground as you watch me drown
You'll watch me drift away at the time I'm put falling down


All tied down
In gloomy gown
Freedom lost from dusk to dawn
All alone
Tears but flown
Lost forever in what life has shown


My heart burnt out
I'm tired to shout
Through the mist there is no route


The somber night around me, so opaque, infinity
If for a single day I just could see a ray of sun
I could finally set myself free, feel the light, have a dream
But forever I am bound, bound in these salty tears


All tied down
In gloomy gown
Freedom lost from dusk to dawn
All alone
Tears but flown

Lost forever in what life has shown
Track Name: Distant Lands (Act I)
Sorrowful, in this dready mist I've roamed
So many days have fleed past me
There's no rememberance of the life before
Feels as I've been like this evermore


Reality, a thing I can't face no more
These cloudy days under the pale moon
Lonelyness has killed me, made me numb
Now what is left of a man after all?

Reality, a thing I can't face no more
These cloudy days under the pale moon
Lonelyness has killed me, made me numb
Now what is left of a man after all?


Please set me free of this,
set me far away
Far away from the past,
with no awake
Empty all that's left
and drain it all
Then take the emptiness
forevermore


Oh darkness, touch me gently
Touch me and remove all the feels
For there is just a single person
That leaves me live yet so unsure


Now finally the reflection of her has ceased
The reflection in the silver tear
Now finally has the movement stopped
The desolation running down


Only if I could, for a while, step out of the shades
Have the chance to see you, feel your skin so pale
For that chance I would give my soul, give all that I have
But as the misery grows I know the hope reduces



Please set me free of this,
set me far away
Far away from the past,
with no awake
Empty all that's left
and drain it all
Then take the emptiness
forevermore


Now finally the reflection of her has ceased
The reflection in the silver tear
Now finally has the movement stopped
The desolation running down


Only if I could, for a while, step out of the shades
Have the chance to see you, feel your skin so pale
For that chance I would give my soul, give all that I have
But as the misery grows I know the hope reduces


You are still beautiful, you haven't changed
What has become of me, a man without feels?
