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)
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 (Chorus) 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 (Chorus) 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. (Chorus) (End)
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 (prechorus) We are abandoned here, our sons and daughters are dead I cannot see tomorrow, and so I sleep forever (Chorus) 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 (Prechorus) (Chorus) 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
Veiled in a darkness so serene The air, so cold and heavy, rushing my face (Chorus) 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) (Chorus) 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 (Chorus)
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 (verse) 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... (Verse) 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 (repeat) 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...
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... THROW ME DOWN! (repeat)
