As Horizons End

To remain pessimistic found, in this hour of distress
Till decayed, derelict down
In this shower of pretence

Desire profane
You never see again

As horizons end
ever to descend
As horizons end
ever to descend

You retain a desolated frown
In this hour of distress
You invade the decadent crowd
In a shadow of pretence

Desire profane
You never see again
The light of day it seems to be enslaved

I Remain

Blindness as we consider our fate
Within our mortal wake
The will of one astray
To prevail my sins at gods gate

Digress as we consider and fail
Forlorn this empty cage
As treachery invades
You consider the tears and disengage

Tear me down & break me I remain

I’ve never seen the love and confidence
To believe the faith & never speak again
Forever seething throes of opulence
To release the pain and never breathe again
Can you release the pain and never speak again

At Gods gate
Tear me down & break me I remain

First Light

There’s no mistake
Plea denied, lying remains
Fear so restrained
Plea denied, lying insane
Pray for the day
Your sentence awaits
Inside your senses awake

Cold harsh first light
Face the trial failed in life
Hold on, first light
Face the trial, fade then die

Free from regret
Redefine darkened intent
Blood drawn & drained
Weakened I’m worthless in chains
Tears from the brave
Your senses awake
The final elegy waits

Frailty

Nature
I’ve never shown so much redemption
I’ve never shown

Crawl through the mist to the masses
Born through sadness
Endeavoured far too long with this
I’m past this now

Your reach is far too long

Drawn to the freedom of action
Sworn compassion
Been severed far too long from this
I’m past this now

Failure,
I’ve never shown so much intention
I’ve never known

Scorn a resist that surpasses
Fortunes absence
Been severed far too long from this
It’s fractured now

And all I’ve got is frailty to release
time waits for no one

Your show won’t save me from the past
Dissolved dreaming it could last

Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us

Refrain from the way we were
Slain the invincible
Changed are the the ways of man
Fortitude to face the path

Vanquish the pain
Don’t want to see it fail

(Faith divides us, death unites us)

Vanquish the pain
Don’t want to seek despair

(Faith divides us, death unites us)

Tears for a hopeless case
Outside is still so vague
Frayed the landscapes of old
Cleared the indelible

Cannot sleep through darkened skies
Cannot dream until its over

The Rise of Denial

Ascending from your fallen past
Life it’s the same
Attending to a loneliness
For you, never

Through channels of uncertainty
A rise of denial
This sadness is positioning
As Fortunes snares lay me down

In a dream despite
The air we breathe, serenity

Grip the dead hands of the last
Detritus invades
Indefinite the consequence
For you endeavour to
Aggravate uncertainty
A rise of denial
This passion wont forgive
And ill fortune tears you down

All that’s been ignites
Suppressing me, serenity

Living With Scars

It’s deaths intention
We pass through the certain awaits
Upholding the pleasures at hand
God given traits

Living with scars

Through bleak accession
We task through disaster we face
In fear of rejection we stand
God given grace

To live again
Taken by the ones we force
Without a solitary reason
It’s like solace from the shade

Don’t see it any other way
It’s deaths inception we must take

With dark intention
A passing the certain awaits
Withholding pleasures
At hand all that gods given drained

Back to top


Last Regret

Free the will to try
Adapting over time
Feel no wealth inside for the last ones
For the last ones

Hear my last words
This my last regret

Kill the will to die
Innocence it all seemed right
Dreaming darkeness lies for the last ones
Freedom is denied
For the last ones

Hear my last words
This my last regret

Universal Dream

We spend a lifetime
In death we trade
Until it’s over manipulate the ones who stay

Guarded and secret
Stalking a world in which I’m new
Sorely deceitful
In all that is so abused

For the universal dream, born to understand
For the universal need, born to understand

Repenting lifestyles
In death we train
Until its over
Eliminate the ones who stay

Guarded and secret
Another world in which I grew
Sorely deceitful
In all that is so abused

For the universal dream, born to understand
For the universal need, born to understand

Manipulate the ones who say
Save me
Manipulate the ones who stay
Incriminate me

In Truth

I’m, I’m in a picture with you
You just seem to know
I am a liar I am a fake
In truth
You don’t need to know

I turn at the laughter
As you proceed to show
I am a dead man, I’m a mistake
It’s true
Do I need to know

In all I’ve shown
Cross me again, all hope defeated again

Hold on we all strive
We ascend from a world we all try

Cardinal Zero

Centuries, born to break my weary soul
Sanctioning, scorn to break my dearest foes
To rip the face off this
Reaching out I lost control

This soul in shame
All I can take
Who holds the blame
All that I’ve wasted

Sent to rest, scorn to break my weary soul
Sufferance, force to break my dearest goals
To rid disgrace from this
A loss of mind is lost control

This soul in shame
All I can take
Who holds the blame
All that I’ve wasted

To raise the gate, ever so elated
Erase the day ever so disdained

Descent awaits never you’ll restrain this
Regret awaits forever your embrace

Back On Disaster

It’s all I want
Clear my mistakes
All adhere to the first disgrace
Caress all with this agony

In dreams I have tried
Don’t look back on disaster
Ask your questions in time

Despite the hate are you afraid
All consumed by a surging grace

I’ve buried all with this agony tears I have cried

Don’t look back on disaster
Is there a place and a time

When all your dreams that just break apart you fall apart it seems
Another ending you’d make the start embrace the heart be free

Hail to the bitterness
