Delirium Album Lyrics

Turned to Ice

 

Waves of speak

from bitter tongue

miserably,

he feeds his GOD

HATE be my witness,

forgiveness is none

he’ll never remit this

world into which he’s become

All that’s green,

all that breathes,

all that lives, land or sea,

sacrificed to the freeze, you’re frozen

 

You’re frozen now,

all turned to ice

there is no sound

in your demise, as the light fades from your eyes

Experience sickness

the world is a fraud

the realm of forgiveness

speaks to the weak and distraught

floating on an ocean of decay

 

All that’s green,

all that breathes,

all that lives, land or sea,

sacrificed to the freeze, you’re frozen

 

You’re frozen now,

all turned to ice

there is no sound

in your demise, as the light fades from your eyes

Hate is our god

it will free us

it controls us

it will reign

You’re frozen now,

all turned to ice

there is no sound

in your demise, as the light fades from your eyes

 

Ocean of Memories

 

“I am here – floating on an ocean of memories

So real

And I fear it only takes a droplet of malady

To stifle its beautiful life”

Oh desperate eyes keep coming back to here,

Convinced they are bound to this place

Says the fool, as to himself he lies

Says the fool, with time on his side

I can’t but wonder, what is that look in your eyes?

Desperate eyes look around in need of future

“oh where is my beautiful place?

Searching for peace – on an ocean this vast and empty

here, where the only reflection is me”

-says the fool, as to himself he lies

says the fool, as through his grin he cries

and I can’t but wonder, what is that look in your eyes?

…what is that look in your eyes?

Sentiment invokes its own will

it’s evident, when not on its side

Over and over again,

like the madness inside of our broken minds

and I can’t but wonder

what is that look in your eye?

 

Saturnine

 

The introduction as it seems

and underworld over your being

desperate and foolishly

letting evil make your meaning

Who can trust, when you’re broken and all is lost?

Saturnine – hide your face to the world and the earth shall crumble. All beware of the mind that’s filled with the bitterness of cold

Where can you run, now that your world is gone, and fate

holds your tongue?

Now I recognize this pain inside,

the days have died and turned to night

We dwell in this light – from Saturn by night

Surrender our minds, we’re saturnine

We’re saturnine

Saturnine

What were you born to but pain?

Now we recognize this pain inside,

the sun has died and left us blind

we dwell in this light, from Saturn divine

surrender our minds, we’re saturnine

We’re saturnine

We’re saturnine, so saturnine

within our minds

Leave me blind, by Saturn’s light

and the earth will crumble

Saturnine,

why?

 

Delirium

 

Despite antiquity,

the ancient forum’s broken silence

and its confusing presence

stirs us, in a state of violence

Let it fill the void that plagues all that we do

Intellect’s spawn

speaking in song,

tell of your world so wrong

You are but one,

deeper than some,

in your delirium

Speak like the day is long,

you’ve all the time to earn your highness

and though our utterances

are far below the worth of silence,

They give us quite a stage to disavow what’s true

Vagary’s pawn,

speak like you’re wrong

speak like the day is long –

good things will come

when you are gone

free from delirium

I can’t be bothered to try

and understand what’s inside

this disharmonious mind

and what it’s worth in your eyes

Intellect’s spawn,

speak like you’re wrong

speak like the day is long

good things will come

when you are gone

free from delirium

Vagary’s pawn

tell of your world so wrong,

you are but one

in your delirium

 

Ghost in the Well

 

In the fog of a dream

came an apparition

graceful, pale, and discreet

Something’s unresolved here…

By the sound

in a well

you can still hear rising breath

escaping the pale cold and frozen waters

Each demon grins to the sound of its name

Guilt, shame, passion

no one’s to blame

Something’s possessed me to swim in this hail,

was it your mind, or the ghost in the well?

I thought it was done

when the waters stilled,

and the moon took place of the sun

Something’s unresolved here…

and each demon grins to the call of its name:

Guilt, shame, passion,

no one’s to blame

Something’s possessed me to swim in this hail,

was it your mind, or the ghost in the well?

Was it the ghost in the well?

You’re restless and cold,

far from the unknown,

I’ve hollowed eyes,

dead inside.

Help me let go,

I’ve known you before

The strongest minds

will live and die

Each demon grins to the call of its name:

Guilt, shame, passion,

seems no one’s to blame

Something’s possessed me to swim in this hail,

was it your mind, or the ghost in the well?

 

Chosen

 

What would happen if

this ship we’re sailing in

crashed to leave us dead,

what could we promise then?

I won’t leave – without you

even though you rot away

Waiting on the worms

decaying flesh they turn

elated in their bite

Climb out

from the well of emotion

hear the sound of the ocean

Cry out

live without being chosen

to the sound of the ocean

I’m stuck in this great dismay,

feel that it’s all in vain

what nature gives, nature takes away

The decaying sun,

dark spreads steadily on

and it drowns the world in pain

Waiting on the worms,

decaying flesh they turn

elated in their bite

Climb out

from the well of emotion

hear the sound of the ocean

Cry out

live without being chosen

to the sound of the ocean

Climb out

from the well, living hell

this is not the great blue sea

Cry out,

live without being chosen

to the sound of the ocean

 

Edge of Time

 

I won’t move

like one of you

a floating blade of grass

upon the ocean blue

where an easy corpse is made

under the ocean waves

in a fleeting glimpse of time,

the path inertia guides

Liberate your mind

Can you blame your fate on the world around?

now that you’ve resigned, at the edge of time

as we live within a lie

slave to our design, we leave our will behind

So is it better to

hold conflict before you?

or hold it deep within

and hope the soul will win

We’ve had such different pasts

to hope that it would last

when ever changing is the world,

where does inertia guide you?

Liberate your mind

Can you blame your fate on the world around?

now that you’ve resigned, at the edge of time

as we live within a lie

slave to our design, we leave our will behind

Is this where we want to go?

a hell of all our own, sinking like a stone

as we liberate our minds,

reaching deep inside,

feel the world alive

 

Far Below

Laid to rest

For the best

while this monster feeds

on death

And I go far below

to the depths where I know that the cold won’t find me

and run from the sun’s light

exposing the sum of the acts beside me

to claim the remains

of the one who once came and stood beside me

To far below

where I’ll go

to let nature know

we’re alone

All the pain

remind me

of who you used to be

This stays

inside me

like blood on my hands

I fall into the vast cold

As I go far below

to the depths where I know that the cold won’t find me

and run from the sun’s

light exposing the sum of the acts beside me

to claim the remains

of the one who once came and stood beside me

All the pain

it reminds me

of who you used to be

The stains

inside me

the blood on my hands

Into the damned, nature’s hand

we all will descend

And I go far below

to the depths where I know that the cold won’t find me

and run from the sun’s light

exposing the sum of the acts beside me

to claim the remains

of the one who once came and stood beside me

And the burden of grace

puts a scar on the face of the man who’s lost thee

and the semblance of pain

burns a hole in the heart of a distant memory

I will claim your remains

from the place of this pain and set you free

 

The Maze

 

Far within this haze,

a breath from patient whispers

travels on…

Now tumbling in our maze,

our spirits never after

looked upon…..

What we planted

looked like it’d be strong and fruitful,

fate intervenes

we all were

wrong

As we climb, the branches break,

and the leaves fall down as we make

our awful song..

Another chapter gives

a living to our laughter,

dying to despair…

The ink I write in thins,

I try, in haste, to capture

everything I fear

As I’m thrown through a tumbling haze,

my mind focuses on the things

I cannot solve

Often woeful, and very small,

things that shouldn’t irk me at all,

but won’t resolve

My friends – once scattered

in here – we’re gathered

one maze – no master

come feign disaster!

Far within this maze,

are spirits never after looked upon

and in our awful song,

we leave its ears in boredom,

terrible and long

My friends – once scattered

in here – we’re gathered

one maze – no masters

come feign disaster!

My peers – no laughter

it’s pain we’re after

come feign disaster!

 

Bleeding On The Horns

 

The soul seeks its art in places unknown

You search for the pain in the hopeless fit of darkness that unfolds

So I’ll take my pride,

drown it in the red moonlight,

and go back to the sea

Where emptiness will speak to me

Though I know your heart,

and its darkest parts,

in your misery,

you are just like me

Impaled in awe,

bleeding on the horns of loss

all will in vain,

bleeding on the horns of shame

The soul gathers rust,

exposed in the hatred she trusts

your suffering’s real

it’s as real as you want it to feel

So then, take this life

thrust it to a bloody knife

and go down to the grave

That is where the weak will lay

Though I know your heart,

and its darkest parts

in your misery,

you are quite like me

Impaled in awe,

bleeding on the horns of loss

All will in vain,

bleeding on the horns of shame

So I know your heart,

and its darkest parts

in your misery,

you are quite like me

Bleeding on the horns of shame

solace is a distant gaze

you will know your suffering’s name

bleeding on the horns of shame

 

Burn This Ladder

 

I rode on a guilty naiveté

waking the worms, below

asleep

They say that it’s solid beneath our feet

but no one digs

this deep

This is a place where death’s buried,

but I can hear you scream

come

Don’t let the rain conceal our speech,

be free to speak to me

I’ll be fine

to make the climb

but there’s no respite

for a broken ladder

As it breaks,

and we climb

and it breaks,

Can you remember how it feels

to see the world above?

It’s dark and it’s cold, but unlike here

there’s trust, somewhere

in love – lost…

I don’t mean to dig,

but do you need a hand?

The words come out real,

but who could understand?

I’ll be fine

to make the climb,

but there’s no respite

for a broken ladder

Out of sight,

out of mind,

shed with time,

the hole grows vaster

And by the last flame,

I’ve changed my mind

to climb to the surface

I wouldn’t dare say

there’s much to find

all that’s real lives below us

In the dirt,

amongst the worms,

who speak to me honestly

Where I watch in naiveté

and I watch as you climb

I’ll be fine

to make the climb

but there’s no respite

till we burn this ladder

Give it time

for peace of mind

there’s no respite

till we burn this ladder down
