The Dead 07:04
On this holy day as the dead doth now rise The earth does now weep to the waning skylight A chasm of the hollow A fortune stained of blood A light upon the blackest shadow A frigid touch of dust Upon this placid dome in the whispering breath of night A silent life does fade in it's lonely cries of fright A naked mound of frozen hope A stilled desecration of lies A fallen death upon the Unknown A feeble gaze from unnamed life Blood taints the morning horizon, a golden silhouette of unlife The lost allure of heaven has died in the rot of the Crypt Blood taints the morning horizon, a golden silhouette of unlife The lost allure of heaven has died in the rot of the Crypt

Sleepless 05:37
In the twilight frost a chilled earth does weep as it's life fades to the ashes of clay Mother is gone and bereft of hope In a slumbering sigh all that was has died A shade cast to the cold, black rain; In the sleep that never dreams the pale cover of earth's harvest is barren Weep your sighs as they cascade to ice The breath of life has frozen in the night Herein lies dead emptiness Embrace the sombre desolation in this respite of grace Mother is gone and bereft of hope In a slumbering sigh all that was has died
4.
Sleep as you descend and fly away beyond The earth's crimson soul forgotten by god Unheeded dreams in nightmares abound As the flesh wither and fall to the ground The darkened Abyss of wretched unlife Of rigid, cold flesh so horrid in sight Life is now lost among this putrid decay Lost, gloriously lost, is the warmth of the day Gone is all life Sleep without dreaming Farther beyond hope Pleading in suffrage As the violet rose dies in the night the frost beckons the cold Weep as ye may lie; a rapture in Twilight The life of Death draws near and clutches your feeble heart Sever your life holding your breast Cherish the silence for Death grants no rest In the Forest of Shadows The autumn shrills alone and weeps In the depths of shivered earth Death in life shall arise Sleep as you descend and fly away beyond The earth's crimson soul forgotten by god Unheeded dreams in nightmares abound As the flesh wither and fall to the ground Serenity entails your empty shell As divine grace granted salvation In the likeness of Death as a soul without Await the last birth of Creation Hidden from disgrace Borne of Damnation The golden trumpet heralds The rising of unlife In this damned Twilight of the final Apocalypse A rose shall never be born

Though it contains no lyrical content Phases of Death wraps the dying process in an envelop of sound representative of what one might experience when confronted with ones mortality.
6.
The depths of nothing drown my soul Caverns of deception open from below Left alone with the emptiness to fill the void Anger is the sedative to soothe my mind Compulsion to destroy the existence of oneself Holding onto the elements of a fading sanity Darkening surroundings of a deluded mind Forever trapping reason inside Pillars of hatred support eternity Wall of darkness mirrors my destiny Light fading to grey Life drains out Future led astray Past erased to black Lost hope of happiness Found less in death Had a chance for life Lost hope of happiness Found less in death Had a chance for life Now it is gone
7.
Mourning has broken Life is fading Falling to pits In endless despair Awakening of eternity Sleeping with eyes open Betrayed of sanity Cut no bleeding Strength exhausted Soulless extinction Strength exhausted Soulless extinction Screaming out in pain But no one hears your pleas Shattered in your life You passing by in time Scarred in your mind Where are your fatal wounds Silence for your piece Insanity kills you Insanity kills you

Possession 15:04
A grave to shade the frozen day In cold desertion with shallow names A soul born dead and cast unto flames In shameless play to retrieve her way A frost so pale in softened rain In casted stone not chisled away A virtue without lustre in clay In graven silence and darkened pain A forgotten stream by an unknown grave In gifted silence a name betrayed A barren dream asleep in hate In mourning dreams denied in rage A flight of woes in sickness reign In darkness shunned of mortal saves A hinded sight such wretched craves In forlorn lust she sat in grace A burden onto Hell's dark path The frost of life in darkness sat A heart of dust, a soul of lack The sombre danse from which she laughed A fallen god to ice so black The deamon sighs in fractured glass A silhouette of flame so vast The eyes of felled Death stared back A sigh from which thy life attacked The dead declared offsane impasse A season of the unknown craft The plague from which thy death begat A frightened earth with molten cracks The stillness of the fire's cast A fortune of the broken mask The face upon defiantly smashed
