Track Name: Bells of Passing
Come with me, Abbadon
Guide me to Heaven, O' spirit of the abyss
Darkness hath surround me, I ask for only peace
Come with me, O' come with me

Here in death, I am alive
There are no tears, no laughs, but there is something never dreamed before
Go forth to the embrace of paradise
Your heart is resting now and I am finally broken free

Higher and higher, ascending a fire for the banishing of a sun
The world is fallen, but I am reborn forever translucent and alone
Looking within a self righteous delusion, O' God have you left me behind?
The stars, so calming, illustrious bodies of tracers and shadows alike.

(Come with me, O' spirit of death. Guide me to Heaven
O' spirit of the abyss, darkness hath surround me)
Track Name: A Rising Fire
Dark clouds of a waking storm at hand
The eyes of a thousand arctic gales
Upon the layers of this snow
The pyres of a million worlds below
Streaming through the melted snow is a river of blood and ash
The shining of a golden helm blazes through the towering clouds

A blanket clouded sky of coal
It rips apart the ground
The cold red sun the size of hell
Swallows the demon moon
I watch as death surrounds myself
Its frozen hands begin to melt
The winter landscape behind my back
In front, a chaos unfolds

A rising fire again
It licks the clouds above
No one seen within my sights
No more
The lights inside this bloom of sun
The tears of Earth are burned away
The groves and forests swallowed whole
And the art of life, no more

I slowly breathe the air, the smell of grass and rain
Awakened to the end and naught, the dancing harlequin ghosts
The saturated stagnant air brings my lungs to pain and mess
Within this hectic plunge, I feel the end is near

Twisting and turning the skies above
I've lost the sleeping stars
The beauty of a world dying
It brings me to my knees
The hands of heaven and of hell
Gripping the earth at once
The crumbling ground opens up
The winds are green with life


The embers, floating, of the fallen grove
It runs around my head
Reminding me of my borrowed time
A time that wants to be ended
The darkness binding that which calls me home
It calls me back to home
I want to see the last remaining hours
Of the world as we know.

Track Name: No More Dawn
The sun is dying beyond the desolated horizon
Our days have ended.
Structural mayhem reaches the dried oceans
The earth is burning

The gates of hell are opened
My home consumed by miasma
The corpses line the meadows
The trees engulfed in flames
The angels, descending
Their spears of lightning flashing
Their trumpets blaring warfare cries

The moon is falling through shades of ember
The eyes of God, scowling
There is no dawn. I have faded into nightfall
I am shrouded

We are abandoned here, our sons and daughters are dead
I cannot see tomorrow, and so I sleep forever

O' ye saints of death, hear us
Through their gnashing of teeth
We are cold, we are here
We still live in pain

Ethereal rain, the purge of worlds
I begin to weep
The skies are caving in, the air is dense with smoke
It pains my chest

Solar flares, empty tides
The gods begin to scream in pain
Forever has just reached its end
These shadows, they're dancing
They celebrate the end of days
Singing into the barren wind


The air goes silent with death
A cold breeze of dust and ember

Beyond the clouds of sulfur
A pale, blue sun emerges
I see the stars appearing
My body drifts into time
Track Name: Red As Blood Within
Veiled in a darkness so serene
The air, so cold and heavy, rushing my face

Heaven hunts me down, seeking
Every hope is gone
Shapes of black with wings, glowing
Red as blood within

Every laboring breath stings my chest
The wolves of the high thrones gave pursuit
Their wings black as the sky of night
They come for me (They come for me)


An angel calling my name
With voices so sweet
Rain falls in my eyes
Cold as the trees
Running away to a place
Where I can live in peace
Please let there be rest for me

Track Name: The World Beyond
Have you heard a tale of a world behind the eyes?
Not quite dreams nor a place to behold
One can view oneself, or follow the stars
I'll lead you through the nebular dust

Ride the lights into existence
As you've never experienced
They feel as sand under your feet
Within a crystal river

Have you seen the sunrays, or the northern skies, dark?
How they weave through the night, in an ethereal waltz
We will be as they, the aurora nights
Only death may you live and become as I

You are at rest
As we visit the heavens
Sleep now... We will return

Turning and twisting and turning my head
Don't let go, the void has no friends
Screaming and searing and crying, they weep
Look there ahead, you'll see, it is me!

Fear, my son, is fear...
I am here, so fly
Reach and take my hand
Hell is here so...


Fear, my son, is fear...
I am here, so fly
Reach and take my hand
Hell is here so... FLY
Don't come here! You seek not flame
Die! Don't you dare
Leave us here....

Fly away, flying away
Fly away, flying away
Die, you are not dead

Fly away, flying away
Fly away, flying away
Dead, you are not dead
Fly away flying away
Dead, you are not dead
Fly away, flying away
Fly away, flying away...
Track Name: The World Beyond pt:2 Isolation
You fool! You forsake your physical being!
Only we, the light beings, dwell here
Turn back and run before it is lost
You have ventured far too far

We are the damnable, bound to the earth
Through the Isolation, and you will arrive
Quiet though, they feel your presence
You have ventured far too far!

Watching, waiting, through the dust of the stars I run
Waking, wake me, throw me down...
