Prologue - The Initiation

Into the fray,
Welcome to our parade!
To tales of beyond and of dread,
Tricks of your mind,
Reason gone astray!
Truths still unsaid...
 

You'll touch your demons
And wake their shade,
They will rise again...
Through guises of mind
In this masquerade
You'll know your PAIN!
 

Reaching through darkness,
Strange but familiar voice
Behind the mist of your thoughts,
Buried in shadows,
Calls out to you through noise
Of your preconceptions
And overused excuses;
Through maze of illusions,
Your forsaken truth
Will rise!
 

Within your fears
You’ll never find your light
Don’t waste these years
Don’t give in to the night
 

Disclose your demons,
And touch their shade,
Dare to let them nearer
Open your mind and
This masquerade
Will be your mirror...


 

The Omen of Downfall

Past,
With ghostly touch
Wakens my scars,
Sting so precise that
Makes me shiver,
Turns my will to dust!
 

YOU DREAMT TOO MUCH!
YOU SOUGHT TOO FAR!
THIS IS THE PRICE!
Now to its poisoned river
I commend my trust...
 

Into the darkest night I'd walk
To unbind you,
To break your damnation...
I'd smother this snake, this bane inside you...
For salvation...
 

Demons you hide - you must face them!
Failings denied - just embrace them!
Thorns of your hell, of this iniquity,
They're daunting me!
 

Frustrations you bleed - they consume me!
Doubts that they feed rage within me!
Stumbling through haze of this uncertainty
Is changing me!
 

FANGS OF
FEAR AND DISTRUST,
CUTTING THROUGH SENSE,
HORRID AND CUSSED!
Can I defy this darkness
Tearing all apart?
 

GROWING DISGUST!
STRANGLING YOUR HEART!
SCARRING YOU FAST!
Will I be drowned in madness?
Worn by sickening lust...
 

There's only pain where I can reach you,
Only shadows of angst and temptation...
Our wondrous charm, is it broken?
 

TAINTED!
WITHIN HIS CORE!
BREAK YOUR ILLUSIONS!
REMNANTS OF BLISS WILL
HURT YOUR MORE THAN REVULSION!
 

DAMN AND ABHOR!
NO ABSOLUTION!
THERE'S JUST ABYSS OF
YOUR OWN WAR!
 

Demons you hide - they consume me!
Failings denied - rage within me!
Fall through this maze of insecurity
Is wasting me!
 

Frustrations I bleed - you won't face them!
Doubts you have freed - I embraced them!
Sickness and chains of this impurity,
They're morphing me!


 

Esurience Guilefulness Omnipotence (EGO)

A whisper born inside your mind,
Demanding you leave behind your convictions!
I DRAW THE LINE!
 

Black worm in your consciousness,
Deceit that you can't suppress,
Its vile predictions!
YOUR THOUGHTS ARE MINE!
 

You know you need my disease!
I will protect you from pain!
I can provide what you seize!
Disown yourself, it's not in vain!
 

I own you! I'll tear you to pieces!
When you believe my words your heart will die betrayed!
I'll crush you! I'll burn you to ashes!
When you become my voice your mind becomes my shade!
 

Stone cold, you're a mould of mine,
A sculpture of my design,
Cruel, defiant!
I'VE CUT YOUR WINGS!
 

Eager,
Don't think you decide
You're just a marionette I guide,
Meek and pliant!
I PULL THE STRINGS!
 

You're just my servant, I thrive in your weakness and doubt!
Soon you will wish you were dead!
The cries inside your skull will spread,
There's no way out, NO!
 

I own you! I'll tear you to pieces!
When you believe my words your heart will die betrayed!
I'll crush you! I'll burn you to ashes!
When you become my voice your mind will fade!

 

Now!
Rest in your final retreat!
Bottomless pit of dispair!
Concede the bond that we share!
Follow my call and
Come to me!

 

I own you! I'll tear you to pieces!
When you believe my words your heart will die in fear!
I'll crush you! I'll burn you to ashes!
When I become your voice I'll never disappear!

 

Armour of Thorns

You think you know me,
This shining smile and burning eyes;
But beneath this skin
I'm nothing but disguise...
And I'm still changing,
My inner fire turned to ice...
No more falling, no heartache,
No vows or sacrifice!
 

I'm breaking within,
Why don't you feel my pain?
How can I live
If I give in?
Why can't you see
This darkness in me?
Help me to understand
Who is in control!

 

What is this wraith of madness
Ripping through my heart with poisonous hands?
Destroying
Every truth I have?
It taunts me...
Eludes me...
Defies me...
 

WAKE UP!
 

Under this armor
My sunken heart still lives in chains,
Torn from strength and compassion to
Nothing but remains...
And I'm still fading,
This shield consumed my hopes and fears...
Turned my light into memory
Engraved in frozen tears...
 

I beg you to see
How much it hurts!
This struggle is real,
Why won't you hear my cries?
How can you be
So cold and severe?
You left me here
To stand by myself,
to find my own way, so
Now I fight alone!
 

Reborn in pain of vengeance,
You will never harm or break me again!
This beast will
Swallow all I am!
The fall is endless...
Frightening...
 

I WIN!
 

As days go by
I lose my mind!
Fallen in doubt
Torn and confined!
I try to see,
I try to fight!
What is this thing that I became?
Am I to blame?
 

Unyielding as stone,
Biting as glass,
That's what you wanted me to be...


 

Netherlight

I come from despair that crawls through your veins...
I dwell in your soul and I drink its light...
I feed on your faith and your hope's remains...
Too weak to resist, you dream of my night...
 

Worn,
A spirit that walks unseen,
Your sorrow is calling me,
Begging to belong
To the coldness within...
 

A path you can only know
If you're immersed in me,
Fading for too long
In the dust of undertow...
 

Behind these phantom walls
Your every longing falls
Into my darkness,
Where pain is born!
 

My deathless shadow
Strangles your senses,
Breaks your defenses,
It's time to go...
Come with me...
 

Born
In chasm of misery,
I'm drawing your will away,
Bleeding all your light,
Till your soul turns to gray!
 

I darken eternity
With echoes of past dismay!
Blessed by endless night,
I embrace you today...
 

Inside this hall of glass
You let your memories pass
Into my darkness,
Where scars are born!
 

My deathless shadow
Drains all your senses,
Tears all your defenses,
It's time to go...
 

Say goodbye forever...
 

Your blackness flows
Into my core...
Your void's too close,
I'll lose this war...

Blurred by your touch
I yield my soul...
It hurts too much...
Just take it all!
 

When I close my eyes,
When the pain is gone,
I don't want goodbyes,
Just to fade alone!

Never think of me,
Or this shade within!
Let me disappear
Like I've never... been...
 

Haunting Netherlight
Steals my heartbeat...
This journey ends tonight...
My last... defeat...


 

Bête Noire

SHAPESHIFTING BLAZE!
A GHOST FROM YOUR SCREAMS!
I prey on memories you
BURRIED IN HAZE!
CONCEALED IN YOUR DREAMS!
On scars veiled and unconfessed!
 

I'm toxic ice!
A deadly tide!
I'm the cry of doubt you
Try to hide!
 

I will come when your soul is weak!
Bearer of the truth
YOU WON'T DARE TO SPEAK!
I grow when your mind's unclear!
You're my mirror,
I'm your FEAR!
 

I SING IN YOUR BLOOD!
I CREEP THROUGH YOUR SKIN!
I make the time stand still 
WITH CHORUS OF DREAD!
WITH HORRORS UNSEEN!
I'll burn you out until
 

Your reason's gone!
You lose it all!
Conjuring your nightmare
While you fall!
 

I reveal what your heart witholds
Silent screams and chambers
WHERE TERROR UNFOLDS!
 

I wake your foregone mistakes!
My embrace is all
It takes...
 

LOCKED IN A PRISON I MADE JUST FOR YOU
WATCHING YOUR LIFE PASSING BY!
YOU'LL ROT IN MY ARMS AND YOU'LL NEVER BREAK THROUGH
WHILE YOU REJECT AND DENY ME!
 

You feed on my buried scars,
On my blinding doubt but
I will make you disappear!
I'm your mirror,
YOU'RE MY FEAR!


 

Invidia

Feel me...
Embrace me...
 

Crawling through your heart,
Through your halls of regret,
I transform each part
Into my silhouette...
And I make you crave
All the things still unknown...
You're my master and slave
Of this urge to
 

Resent them all!
All that you can't be!
Will it make you whole?
Will I set you free
If you seize their chance,
If you steal their fame?
But I'm just pretense
While you play this game
With FEAR!

DON'T JUSTIFY ME! 


Now you burn within
With this hunger that grows...
Reaching through your skin,
Morphing to disclose
Your begrudging heart,
Bound by lust to my core...
You can't break us apart!
Just give in and

Resent them all!
All that you can't be!
Will it make you whole?
Will I set you free
If you seize their chance,
If you steal their fame?
But I'm just pretense
While we play this game

With FEAR!

Wake up from your reveries!
You've made me out of your weakness and cowardice!
Look at the horde of excuses around you
Twisting your mind!
 

FACE YOUR HOLLOWNESS!
DON'T JUSTIFY ME!
 

With every thought you just make me grow...
With every heartbeat I swallow you more...
Do you think you can ever break free?

 

Hellgrind

Shrouded in cloak of revenge
I come to destroy every doubt!
I want you to step off this edge!
Let it out, let it out, LET IT OUT!

You know you're sick of control!
Of endless restrain and concern!
No need to resist anymore!
Let it burn, let it burn, LET IT BURN!

Inside this cage
I call the shots!
My spirit's rage!
I bend your thoughts!
My power's yours,
Your mind is mine,
Our goals entwined!

BURN!
 

Why would you care what they think?
Their needs are corrupt, their words stink!
The world would be better without!
Let me out, let me out, LET ME OUT!
 

Despicable minds of decay
Befouling values you prize!
You can't let them have it their way!
Paralyze, break it down, ANNIHILATE THEM!
 

Swelling storm
From the oceans of muffled cries
Shattered all my restraints and ties,
Sucked me into its dreadful swarm!
 

WITHOUT CONTROL!
 

I'm falling now
Where my deepest frustrations wake!
Deafening screams make my boundaries break!
You devoured my sanity!
 

I JUST WANT TO DESTROY IT ALL!
 

I cannot mend
Wounds that you said would heal
If I crush their hearts without regret!
I can't go back!
I can't undo the pain
I brought upon my soul, I can't forget...


 

Credence

Eyes of envy, words of spite,
This bitterness you try to fight,
Reaching for you!
Piercing through your skin!
 

Wasting days in hesitation,
Spinning in this sick frustration!
Will you break through,
Or just let them win?
 

You're my keeper, I'm your power,
Trust me when I say
 

YOU CAN! RESIST!
 

Don't you dare to give it up,
Just because they all want you down!

RISE!

Don't you let them make you doubt who you are...


Broken hopes illuminated
By misgivings they've created,
Slowly falling
Into nothingness!
 

I'm your strength and I'm your fire,
I'm the light that you inspire!
Feel my calling,
Flame of your success!
 

Show them what you can become,
Trust me when I say
 

YOU CAN! RESIST!
Don't you dare to give it up
just because they all want you to FAIL!

FIGHT!

Don't you let them make you doubt what you can!
What you know...
 

Find me within your soul
No one can break our bond...
I'm with you if you fall
Your force lies just beyond!
 

Don't waive before their eyes!
Don't you let them pull you down!
Don't you let them extinguish your light!
Your power's greater than their words!
Don't you ever give up this fight!
Shut off the voices, reach for me!

Reach for me!


 

In Memoriam

That was the night
When sky was shivering...
The moon was black
And stars were lost,
My heart was so cold...
I couldn't see it,
Oh how I wish I knew...
 

What a night,
What a temptation...
You made me take your hand,
You made me follow you...
My tormentor,
My beloved!

What have you done?
Why does it feel so right?
Why does it feel so good, my love?

Your every breath,
Your every touch,
Makes me weak,
Makes me bleed!
But why does it feel so right?
What have you done to me
To make me lose my mind?

That night,
Such a delusion!
Your eyes devouring mine,
And all my defenses were gone...
Intoxicated,
I could fight you no more!

What have you done?
Why does it feel so right?
Why does it feel so good, my love?

Your every breath,
Your every touch,
Makes me weak,
Makes me bleed!
But why does it feel so right?
What have you done to me
To make me lose my mind?

And now I know the way you control me!
I recognize the way you've been using me!
And I'll fight every second of pain!
I'll never be slave to you again!

 

The Seeress of Triumph

You faught phantasmas of your mind,
Immortal monsters from your past,
You thought it hopeless when it all began...

Unending darkness made you blind,
Relentless fear confined your trust,
But now you're free to fly away again...

Weightless, unrestrained!


You and fate,
In eternal dance, forever bonded!
Sworn to become fulfilled,
But everchanging!
You create
This shifting path you must transcend...
Forgive the pain, release the fear
And seek to perceive beyond your mind!

You are the ruler of your thoughts,
You are the master of your deeds,
You have the power to decide and forge your beliefs!

Nothing's engraved and cast in stone,
Predestined roads can be transformed...
Your own awareness shapes your destiny!

You and fate,
In eternal dance, forever bonded!
Sworn to become fulfilled,
But everchanging!
You create
This shifting path you must transcend...
Forgive the pain, release the fear
And search beyond!

Our souls are sparks of the Universe,
Brighter and wiser than you believe!
Within lies the force only you possess,
The flame of eternity you can't deceive!

Your quest isn't over!


We are miraculous instruments of existence, continuously vibrating and changing...
Our hearts are prisms able to refract our impressions into infinite spectrum of thoughts and emotions...
Whenever it appears unbearable, remember
You can always turn the prism and find another shade.

Use that power.

 

Epilogue - The Final Deliverance

Take a look from the other side
Of your mind...
All mistakes that you've left behind,
The tears you cried...
All the pain, every single fear,
Every scar,
Maybe cruel, but they led you here...

Welcome this flame of understanding!
Trials by fire, shades that burn!
Darkness and light are neverending,
Living their war is how we learn...


Infinite possibilities
Shine in you...
Countless roads that you could pursue
And dreams to seize!


Some will hurt, but don't turn away,
Take them in...
They'll amend who you are today...

Welcome this flame of understanding!
Trials by fire, shades that burn!
Darkness and light are neverending,
Living their war is how we learn...
 

Welcome this flame of understanding!
Trials by fire, shades that burn!
Darkness and light are neverending,
Living their war is how we learn...
 

After haze comes clarity...
