Never for the Damned

Never saw the light against the world
Never seen a truth in all I’ve heard

Never for the Damned

Flawless, life just revealed as a chain of events you delay
Lawless, life the ordeal with no thread of intention retained

Heaven or denial again I learn
Heresy the truce for all who burn

Never for the Damned

Distress, throw out the dreams which you cry in defence of and pray
Only, rise if the reason determines you cling for the sake

Never there again…
Never lose pretend…
Ascend and fall for me…

We are foe
Self esteems low
Set me free…

Ash & Debris

Your beliefs shadow everyday (Never again)
Live and breathe, shelter and restrain (Never again)

Never wanted loss
My ever needing soul
Never wanted blood…

You conceive tragedies innate (Feel so revived)
You redeem fallacy remains (Fear so in mind)

Never wanting loss
Never need control
Never wanting love

Could there be, something that your world depends on in me…

Never wanted loss
My ever needing soul
Never wanted blood…

Could there be, something that your world depends on in me…
Could it be, nothing that you learned from ash and debris?

The Enemy

Why can’t you say sorrow
Why can’t you say think I believe
Thou must not steal borrow
Why must you steal things I receive?

Why can’t you say sorrow
Why can’t you say think I believe
Why must you steal borrow
Always conceal cling to belief

Damaged this way hollowed
Living the lie that you can’t take
Damaged maintained solemn
Living for rules you only break

How can you say?

The enemy is thrown into the sadness,
For the enemy there’s only pain and sadness then death…

Praise Lamented Shade

Never seen such doubt
Never seen without
Forever seemed so right
Understand I try

Endeavour rests inane
Takes us once again…

Somewhere in the air

The world can see a reason I believe
The words deceive the reason I believe

Heaven seemed so right
Understanding lies
Hail the fallen grade
Praise lamented shade

Somewhere in the air

The world can see a reason I believe
The words deceive the reason I believe

So you want to show
The only way you’ve known
A truth for all who see
A cue for all who know

Requiem

Slow the art of fear
Writhe against the fading
In these sheltered years
I escape from this cruel world

Chose to domineer
Thrive against all failing
Are these wretched tears
Just remains of my ruined worth…

You’ll never save me again….
Reanimate me again…

Into the grave
With all the symptoms you create
Into the fray
With all the sickness you’ll remain

Unreachable

More than this
A certain divide ask yourself why,
More than this
Turn back in time wondering why

Then you’ll see, tears won’t wash this away
Memories of the years that started the pain

All of this
Thoughts that unite long been denied
All of this
Anger ignites a lasting goodbye

Then you’ll see, tears won’t wash this away
Memories of the years that started the pain

Can’t you see tears won’t wash out the rage?
Memories fallen years that started the hate

Prelude to Descent

Set me down, Oh set me down
On hallowed ground again
Wear me down in prayer confounded
Shadow my torment

It’s dead it’s over all too slow
Can’t you see you’re my worst enemy?
It’s over, overthrown
All I see is just faithless decree

Set me down, Oh lay me down
On ravaged ground again
Lay me down, embrace me now,
My prelude to descent

We never run the same way…
We never run the same…

Fallen Children

As creation reaches high,
Generations we deny,

Never again believe me…

Faded questioning remorse
Eases suffering and loss

Never again believe me…

We alone, the fallen children…

Contemplating this resent
Understanding this contempt
Sorry to say it’s easy

Frail the essence of denial
I return to face this trial
Never again believe me…

We alone, the fallen children…

Can’t save me like the others tried
Don’t fail me as the others die

We alone, the fallen children…

Can’t save me, like the others tried
Don’t fail me, as the others die

Beneath Black Skies

This reprisal search for words
Analyse what it’s worth
Set the stars ablaze from earth
In thoughts sublime we immerse

Another fear I can’t see
All blown away

You say you’ll never run away
From a certain pointing light

Beneath black skies I search for words
Hell relies on what is worse
Heaven lies on sullen earth
Fall then rise
Fall then birth

Another fear I can’t see
All blown away

You say you’ll never run away
From a certain point in life

Is there something wrong?
Nothing I sense no belong

Back to top


Sedative God

You belong, don’t look back,
No excuses…
When you’re down, face the crowd,
So illusive…

To be the same is always there for me
To feel constrained is always there for me

Can you see the light?
Can you question why?
I wonder how, eternally I’m blind

When you’re strong, have no doubts
So elusive…
When your thoughts face the shroud
Unobtrusive…

To be the same is always there for me
To feel constrained is always there for me

The seeds we never sow
Sedative god

Right way, there’s a wrong way
And there’s no way

Your Own Reality

All that’s lost never found, remains of all this…
Never crossed are the ones that see
Taken to the ground, because you’re honest
Stripped and bound for your honesty

It’s in your heart, it’s in your soul

Never disguise all the tears that I’ve cried

I took a trip inside I’m weary,
Lay injustice on your head

It’s in your heart, it’s in my soul in your own reality
It’s in my heart it’s in your soul…

You believe that control has freed
Never disguise all the tears that are cried

We all betray despite the theories
But I’m not conscious of the things I did

It’s in your heart, it’s in my soul, in your own reality
It’s in my heart it’s in your soul…

You believe that control has freed
Never disguise all the tears that are cried

Missing

I step off the train
I’m walkin’ down your street again
And past your door
But you don’t live there anymore
It’s years since you’ve been there
But now you’ve disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You’ve found some better place

And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead of everyone
We’d walk behind while you would run

I look up at your house
I can almost hear you shout down to me
Where I always used to be

I step off the train
I’m walkin’ down your street again
And past your door
But you don’t live there anymore
It’s years since you’ve been there
But now you’ve disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You’ve found some better place

And I miss you
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
Like the deserts miss the rain

Silent in Heart

And all the time I’ve wasted searching, you pretend
You never realised how close we’re to the end

I’m here like sunshine
I’m here just sometimes

I never dreamed of life so jaded through contempt
As all deception ceases progress through resent

I’m here like sunshine,
I’m here just sometimes,

Let all the hatred go, silent in heart…

Sons of Perdition

And all I ever want is never
And though I struggle with the pain
And all I ever want is severed
So that you…
So you must respect the shamed

Saviour above never came

Regarding all the pain a pleasure
And though the struggle seems inane
There is no worth in your endeavour
So that you…
So you must accept the rage

Saviour above never came

And I’m saddened the way you go
Sad in the way, beneath.
