Remembering the times When one stood proud. Alive in mind and spirit Knowing glory and his goals Once for himself - For all of them For what was his right - To be a man, to stand his ground. The edge of extinction Is their status quo There to win their battles To be the one man corps The last to keep their lines Celebrating their rights To be end of the line Not to die, to survive. Drink the blood of those in the way Savage them all The final right, give it away! Extinguish the flame, forever a slave! Raise war, rise again There’s no peace, no rest from rage     Old world vanished Stands proud, when left in vanity Old world vanished Not stained. Recovering from insanity

Nil 07:07
For lichens to feast, for winds to breath For rains to dissolve me on bitter stones No earth corrupted, the unclean immolated Haven for the seeker of silence Below - the sacred groves, spring water and cup stones Sky burial and the last ritual of the one who no longer exists The earth that you walked - you are. Occurring in this liquid of life - that you once drunk. Your essence embellished by moon Your timelessness surrounded in doom Our inane questions before you No light will turn us away from gloom The earth that you walked - you are. Occurring in this liquid of life - that you once drunk. A universe to some and a void to the rest Bow before those who leave a mark to respect

It is not lack of faith, but the dark within For they are the cold, dark matter paradise Depraved palace of men, under the guidance of hell Cold as glory and death. A final place of rest? A dark matter universe - Clusters on a path of doom One last burst of hate, a menace set on its' way ...and the only way to defend themselves is to release the beast within. Those that shatter the illusion, that one can hide his rage. Transparent paragons of death - cold dark matter paradise It is not lack of faith, but the dark within For that they are the cold, dark matter paradise Transparent paragons of death - cold dark matter paradise Depraved palace of men, under guidance of hell …and the only way to defeat themselves is to release the beast within. Those that shatter the illusion, that one can hide his rage.

Under old pine trees - men dressed in wolf skin We the summoned are here to enthrone their mires and rocks My creed turned to wrath, my breath to break the morning calm, my rage to tear their souls apart, and my sword to make them serve man-blood I swore a foreign oath, for what? Words that will be compromised, greed sheathed in hallowed illusion. Creeds proclaimed in apostate ways. Their blood will enrich the blooming of the cold flowers in summer’s breeze, Worship thy domain; you are not less than them, veiled with pitch-black stratagem. Now, a desolate and silent domain serenely lies in wait, Sown are the seeds of growth, solemn thoughts, yet profound. You are not alive, you do not exist, You are a withered garden - Spiritless and soul-less, a dead man walking. White flowers turn blue - covered in dry blood, blooming under a crescent moon His arrival has been marked. A war into the wolves’ lairs is set to start

Maybe better not to remember? Maybe better not to have been told? Yet all is alive – Only wolves are now wandering blind. The end of an ancient world. Tales of  deeds carolled in blood Land of the forgotten sons  – Kings and nations forgone. Land of giants – one of them is fire His brothers – the wind we breathe The body of water – so generous and deep We are all heirs of the ground we keep. The three crowns returned to the west To reminisce where the third had rest Hill forts abandoned by the guests Too steep the slopes for the two bears to make their nests. Land of giants – one of them is fire His brothers – the wind we breathe The body of water – so generous and deep We are all heirs of the ground we keep. Of wood, stone and bone his castles are made His folk gathered in the backwoods' maze Fortified with twigs, ice and horns Stone cold souls awaiting the battle that will not be lost. Maybe better not to remember? Maybe better not to have been told? Yet all is alive – Only wolves are blind.

Shrivel 08:17
As complete you step towards the empty One last tragedy, but not for you to face the aftermath You've been on this path before and seen that all forks lead to the same place No place of solace will comfort you enough No will to proceed to what is left to live for Strengthened by surroundings, unknown to the rest. Yet given to all - one escapes! No cries for help, only attempts to comprehend No safe harbor, not within yourself. None is to change what will be death No ground to understand. No will to live by demand Only one way to cope with it all, but not enough to turn the course Darkness seems not to end. It is a stagnant orbit in nil Only short moments of delight, on a pathway to the endless night This is how it will remain; this is how it will end One more effort, born out of that ever-growing pain One last embrace of the dark that is written on our graves One more to remember, one more with a complete name For now that it is closed, all chapters unveiled What bounded us once, has found its’ way to us again And all that there is an image set slowly to fade away What once was real, was a pilgrimage to end this in a better way But now that it is done, it all seems to make sense anyway And all that there is now, memories and acts of the past No need to take words back - this is what we will have One more to remember, one more with a complete name For now that it is closed, all chapters unveiled
