Tempestuous Fall
The Stars Would Not Awake You

1. Old & Grey

Laid, to rest like the roses at night
They awake at the break of dawn
But I will not
Wait for me, to decay, light the way
This dark misery clouds your dreams
Wait and see
Faint, like my lifeless flesh
Live and breathe, only cease, old and grey
Your thoughts will tempt, just refrain
The blood stains
Take another breath, near your chest, it stabs away
Layer by layer, eroding, it grips so tight
Thoughts will deepen, sinking hope, enticing despair
Tears so salty, corroding, your vision impaired
Taste your tears, drying your skin, parching thirst
Thoughts forgetting, time is flowing, years wasted
Old and grey, eyes betray, death so slow
Lights wil fade, but still your heart hurts
Come to me, come and stay, shine the way
This dark solemn path, all your dreams
Come with me.

2. Beneath a Stone Grave

For years I have laid
Surrounded by silence
Undisturbed for years
In a death so peaceful
So what is this noise?
Has my crypt been disturbed?
So what is this noise?
Has its seal been opened?
Even though I lie
Entombed behind
This large stone grave
I feel a presence
I feel a warmth
The kind death knows not
I feel a warmth
The kind that betrays the living
"Oh mortal being
You have disturbed my sleep
And I ask why?
I don't encroach on the living
So why must you awaken the dead?
The fetid air
Is my resting place
And I wish to be left alone
In this darkness I wish to be
Surrounded by the cold of stone".

3. Marble Tears

In this barren season / Only once a year
Upon her fine face / Drop the marble tears
Her cries are silent / But to touch these stones
Is to know her anguish / A fleeting sense of fear

Does she disturb / The realm of the dead?
Or is her presence / A bitter relief
For the one whose abode / Lies beneath the earth
Though he may rejoice / She laments her fate

"This curse haunts me / I will never escape it
The fates binding / Those tempting cursed seeds"

"One season here / Three seasons living in fear
That fetid air / Oh how I dread it down there
I can't escape / When I am bound to this fate
Oh Hades hear / Your season's end draws near"

"Below the sunlight's reach / Dark magic bears the fruit
The cursed juice so sweet / That wicked curse by you..."

"Prisoned to be with you / Shall I never forget?
That day the earth opened / and swallowed up my grace"

In this barren season / Never twice a year
Down from her fair face / Pour the marble tears
Her pain is silent / But to take these stones
Is to share her anguish / And to be cursed like her.

4. The Stars Would Not Awake You

Streams, washing away, taking your remains
The sky, where you once dwelt, before you fell down
The stars, would not awake, to save you today
The earth, taker of life, giver of mourning

Sunlight, you seem so harsh
My eyes can't bear your warmth
Please recede and set
Let me grieve in the dark
Moonlight, you seem so pure
Your glow distracts my thoughts
Please rise and stay tonight
Help me, for I am alone

Dreams, moving away, flowing within me
Your face, once seemed so clear, now disappears
Your trace, formless in shape, shapeless in haze
Your name, I cannot say, I can't remember your face...

5. A Cold Stale Goodbye

The night is young and the air is dangerous
I do not want you to leave this night
Don't think it's some childish paranoia
I sense that death's on his horse tonight

I turn away but for a moment
And you have left me on my own
This feling grows like a seed inside me
It's vines are strangling my insides

I chase but you are too far
I stop to breathe this air
I hear the faintest footsteps
I feel his cold breath down my neck

The eyes of his wicked horse
Stare right into mine
The last thing that I feel
A cold, stale goodbye

Death has touched me
I hear faint cries
From her voice
Oh how sick she feels inside

The night is old and drenched in staleness
I did not want to leave you this night
Your eyes are filled with deep hysteria
I sense that death won't come for a while
