Vallis Ex Umbra De Mortuus - 2008

by Rigor Sardonicous

1.
O' early morning sunrise Save my soul and light my face Then a shadow fallen from heaven Came and took me far from grace My life is now lost, hope is gone Lay down upon my grave, I am now dead O' angels of the darkness Touch my flesh and hide thy face Take my body into stardust And the earth shall fall in flames Amen
2.
Should I wake before the dawn in a cascade of sleep I shall scream in silent dreams A slumber in mourning and aching breath The skybound sol rays a pallid disease "Mommy! Where are you? I am cold and scared!" "Little one, be silent. Unto the earth you are spared." No rainbows nor fairies adorn my bed As darkness slips over my obscuring, wet head I am weak, I am pale, my humours have shunned My soul has been cast though my body clings on
3.
In fair innocence that died without light A fallen swift breath which fades in the night A reflection of dreams that hallow to be A fragment of stone to touch and to see Such strong, fair sweetness, thy meek mortal one Forgotten to some and to all but not one Cradle your fears and weep as ye may Thy chaste and soft radiance has died in the day
4.
Blood rains down from the sky Rivers choked with the fallen Terror in the minds of the remaining Death continues to reign supreme The earth stained red as they die Lifeless eyes see the end of time Orphaned hope as the destruction continues Pulverized bodies become the new earth Forever night No more light Nothing left to see Plague and Famine Pestilence and Death Holocaust complete Acidic rain Drowns the past Future is forgotten Eternal winter Dark and cold Deep as the endless void Utter devastation, total desolation as the winds of tomorrow blow The dreams of the Apocalypse have been fulfilled
5.
Shallow names on faceless graves Torn and tattered and scattered Abound the land, harvested and Barren of all that matters Locked away beyond rusted gates All around abound Lie there those whom few do know Deserted, forgotten, without
6.
Ancient from the East turns its eye to the sky Distant journey embarked the travelers succeed The moon's change to red soon to be Attention to the Frozen North As strong winds crack apart Livelihood lost to the bitter cold A city torn by inner strife Legendary heroes fail to rise Justice sought for lives lost Enduring drought suffering the cost Light is obvious but the dark fails to see Eight is the number with no solution
7.
Agony 06:23
The horrors of my mind cloud reality Dark figures play, tearing my soul Decent to madness seems inevitable All seems lost, devoid of hope Sickness of mentality Confusions of reality Insane thoughts drive my vision Taking me to the end Pain of suffering Is all that keeps me alive Agony, Misery, Despair Guide me on my quest Lost...Alone Destiny...Provoked Time Drifting...Senses Shifting Feelings Gone...Forever Done Lessons of life never learned Useless guilt of survival Tight embrace of emptiness Darkness dulls the light Symptoms hidden behind desolation The diagnosis never comes Alive but not living Hope of tomorrow is gone
8.
A dusk in shadows, a palace in pain A king without crown and a queen in shame A sceptre destroyed among a throne maimed A jester's court raptured in flames A shallow moor in fog silhouette A castle of souls breathes haunted breath A path of blood royal upon ancient steps A noble birth wrought forgotten death A shadow of dust atop earth and stone A fallen angel without heaven or home A sombre praise borne by no one A gallant virtue among clouds without sun A dusk in shadows, a fortune of fame A monarch of lust, forever erased A rapture in twilight, a cold northern blaze A solicitude of death unknown in disgrace
