I'm waiting here for you To open up my eyes To show me all that is sublime Can we unravel all with time? As we burn through this endless cold despair The circle of light is slowly fading Under endless sky We rise and fall beneath these tides Through echos of a distant time All I seek seems closer than before As we burn through this endless cold despair The circle of light is slowly fading I never wanted to let go I never needed to be free But the flowers you collect Now you've gone to seek… The circle of light The circle of light is slowly fading Is slowly fading… Is slowly fading…

A Flash of lurid light Reveals itself on every side Illuminating past mistakes Now we fall so deep Give Me your hand Fall beneath waves Drown here with me Till the end of our days Still scattered, hiding But I don't see you anywhere A familiar tiding Still I can't let you go Give Me your hand Fall beneath waves Drown here with me Till the end of our days Fall Beneath these waves Fall Beneath these waves What subtle weaving But still my eyes are closed A soul still bleeding Now we fall so deep at last Give Me your hand Fall beneath waves Drown here with me Till the end of our days

Motionless 05:14
Underneath a haze lit sky I search in vain for reasons why There is no rhythm to your rhyme Seems were running out of time Devoid of any light The sun has lived and died In a silence so profound This burden I cannot hide Motionless we slip away With a cruel hand we follow fate Don't let resolve come to late Our destiny wont remain… I seek solace in your eyes Yet it's something I can't find Words you say I can't defy Don't let our past become the lie Devoid of any light The sun has lived and died In a silence so profound This burden I cannot hide Motionless we slip away With a cruel hand we follow fate Don't let resolve come to late Our destiny wont remain… Devoid of any light The sun has lived and died In a silence so profound This burden I cannot hide Motionless we slip away With a cruel hand we follow fate Don't let resolve come to late Our destiny wont remain… Don't let it slip away Don't let it slip away

Drifting 03:55
Light is fading As soul's entwine Broken Sigh's As silence dies Love and grandeur In her Eyes A Solemn glance As silence dies You say your drifting far away from me But I see a guiding light That you cannot see You say your drifting far away from me But I see a guiding light That you cannot see
5.
In Severance 04:44
I gave you everything But you needed something more You tasted all I had And turned it all to stone You needed shelter from your storm But you seemed to scorn my love so inconsistently But it washed away with sin In exile with bitter tears Our destinies the same I bare these chains around me I bare them in your name You needed shelter from your storm But you seemed to scorn my love so inconsistently But it washed away with sin I needed just a little more time But I saw severance in your eyes I needed just a little more time All I am was fading with your light ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo In the light of fallen fortune ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo In the light of fallen fortune Don't you fade Don't you fade away from me Don't you fade Don't you fade away from me

She won't let it be seen She hides behind her stone cold eyes I see the cracks in her smile Beneath a cold grey weeping sky Winds they whisper to her heart Will she remember yesterdays? A life she saw, she tore apart And she left me in dismay So hostile in her beauty Her blood could poison gentleness So fatal to my days But she still reveals pain in her gaze Winds they whisper to her heart Will she remember yesterdays? A life she saw, she tore apart And she left me in dismay Winds they whisper to her heart Will she remember yesterdays? A life she saw, she tore apart And she left me in dismay I still see her there Won't she fade? Won't she fade away from me? I still need her now But she strayed She strayed away from me And I need… She won't let it be seen She hides behind her stone cold eyes…

I was left to face deceit I felt smothered by your lies But I was crying out for more I seemed so hungry for my demise Summer's fading In silence waiting I'm just another casualty But not against my will I can't bare this reality So taste me, take your fill In time I'll seek the sun And the fires that once burned (With A Taste of Deceit) I know what's said and done And taken, not returned And you left me wanting more… And you left me wanting more… In time I'll seek the sun And the fires that once burned (With A Taste of Deceit) I know what's said and done And taken, not returned In time I'll seek the sun And the fires that once burned (With A Taste of Deceit) I know what's said and done And I never wanted to let go I never wanted to let go I never wanted to let go I never wanted to let go I never wanted to let go I never wanted to let go Summer's fading

One glance and all's forgotten My heart seeks whatever she can give A dying love now shows It's last fading light What are you waiting for? Break this silence and surrender... I never knew loves fatal blindness A grief thats silent lies so deep But I never knew love could surround us And it carried us away... Her tears revealed all to me She mourns her loss so secretly My passion and it's fires Now smoulder in these flames What are you waiting for? Break this silence and surrender... I never knew loves fatal blindness A grief thats silent lies so deep But I never knew love could surround us And it carried us away... In air so sweet and thick with rain These clouds they cover up my heart This dying love now shows It's last fading light I never knew loves fatal blindness A grief thats silent lies so deep But I never knew love could surround us And it carried us away...

In our parting what despair You let it go without a care You were lost by now your found The snake your harboured at your breast As I was banished from your caress Will you delight in sorrow less? In time… In time… I feared life's loss and what had begun I faced this quiet death of the sun I found my way though all this And now I'll let you go... My dreaming soul it wants it all Confused words sometimes seem to fall May I hope and yearn for more? Blindly I follow fate But I regret its much to late To accept a heart I can't adore? In time… In time… I feared life's loss and what had begun I faced this quiet death of the sun I found my way though all this And now I'll let you go... I feared life's loss and what had begun I faced this quiet death of the sun I found my way though all this And now I'll let you go...

I wait in silent slumber I needed to pretend That we would find our way As I face this listlessness Illuminate these black skies With our silent storm Like flowers that bloom through fields Of ashes burnt with scorn The end of everything See what you left behind? You lost the will with time Our bed was filled with scent Now it feels just like a tomb Illuminate these black skies With our silent storm Like flowers that bloom through fields Of ashes burnt with scorn The end of everything Illuminate these black skies With our silent storm Like flowers that bloom through fields Of ashes burnt with scorn The end of everything Don't Tell me its the end Don't Tell me its the end Don't Tell me its the end The end of everything

Lost in this dreaming In a cold sweat I'm screaming I needed you there To brace my despair But you were so unaware I still hear you breathing But I'm left here seething I looked deep inside Lost in this divide And still I'm denied I saw you leaving I saw you turn away Now you're gone You're gone without a trace Without a trace… Without a trace… I saw you leaving I saw you turn away Now you're gone You're gone without a trace I saw you walk away I said I saw you walk away Gone without a trace
12.
I see you kneel before me On bended knees You scorned me with your silence With subtle ease A dark day's coming over you Will you realise what you've done? A dark day's coming over So watch these shadows fall On passions killing floor You let me bleed Your actions murdered your words Stil I concede A dark day's coming over you Will you realise what you've done? A dark day's coming over So watch these shadows fall Was I living a lie? I wish I could deny But I see no reason why… A dark day's coming over you Will you realise what you've done? A dark day's coming over So watch these shadows fall
13.
I never wanted this, a fall before the storm Shattered are our yesterdays It seems so long ago, since we drifted high above Now I can’t live without regret I’ve lived my life a lie… Nothing turns out right When you're lost inside the truth …That fades with your memory Face the dawning light And confront the burning truths …I fade with your memory You’ve cut me down to size, revealing all my lies Open wounds that never heal Words can feel like ice, when it touches burning skin Can I find solace in this pain? I’ve lived my life a lie… Nothing turns out right When you’re fighting to find the truth That fades with your memory To face the dawning light I’ll confront these burning truths I fade with your memory Can’t believe it came to this, my back against the wall With nothing left, no pride I still remember you, the last time as we were Now I can’t live without regret I’ve lived my life a lie… Nothing turns out right When you're lost inside the truth That fades with your memory Face the dawning light And confront the burning truths I fade with your memory
