Track Name: Escaping the Cold Abyss of Reality
Here, inside my life
Trapped inside my mind
I am one
I cannot escape
The cold abyss
of reality



This place, so vast, so white, so cold, there's no one
around to hear my screams--so desperate
I need to hear another soul scream as loud
as myself, so i continue on the path
alone, with only blinding light to follow
making no progress, the cold abyss swallows
Doomed to wander life so solitarily
No more will I be able to escape reality


I am
back at the start naked and cold
Born in this world oh all alone
Destruction fills my eyes with pain
With no where to go and nothing to gain
Lay on my back--defeated corpse
Lost in the stars, full of remorse
There is no hope, dreams of blue skies
They are a lie, alone i shall die
Track Name: Through the Clouds
Horizons suffocating, mist fills the sky
All signs of life, all signs of light, slowly diminish
Eternal darkness, unending winter, is now our life
The time will end, unless we find, solace in the last

They breathe fills their lungs with frost
Souls made of the icy shadows
Strength is gained as darkness grows
Crossing through lead by the spirits

Tears are freezing, heart is stopping
Eyes are empty, mind is nothing
Shroud is nearing, taking you in
Wipes the frost clear, from your conquered shell

Embrace the sky, accept the cold, father of winter is now your maker

Frostbitten hands appear
Through the sky they're coming down
Stretching out, they grab a hold
Takes us in and shows us the light

Now, we see the light, through the clouds
The blackened bliss fills our hearts with life
Marching forth creating new purity
Immortal souls forever growing in the air

We breathe fills our lungs with frost
Souls made of the icy shadows
Strength is gained as darkness grows
Crossing through the night lead by the spirits
Track Name: A New Gleaming Eye
Hopeless am I in this realm that I've destroyed
Light seems to have dwelled but I caught a gleam of life

Deep in the shadows

Nothing but darkness here in my wasteland
I continue on with my dreams of death
Hope shining through the fog of the truth
It blinds and distorts the view of my life

Running towards the light that's shining
Thinking not of consequences
Grasping hold of the false hope
Trying to breathe new life into mine

Nothing but darkness here in my wasteland
I continue on with my dreams of death
Hope shining through the fog of the truth
It blinds and distorts the view of my life

The light diminishes before I can comprehend
My values of my life, now I forever walk
Forward leads me nowhere
These false rays forever haunting

I travel on the path of solitude
No one can save me from myself

Hopeless am I in this realm that I've destroyed
Light forever dwells beyond the infinite horizon

Deep in the shadows

Nothing but darkness here in my wasteland
I continue on with my dreams of death
The fog of the truth engulfed all the hope
Painfully clear is now my view of life
Track Name: A Forlorn Flame
Dark depths of reality
I sit waiting for your soul
The frost has consumed me
I need your ember to show me out

Ignited in the soulless cavern
The spark lit the hollow hall
A dream now made has quickly died
Extinguished before it spread wide

Like a moth lead to the light
Lifelong senseless flight

Your soul attaches onto mine
A bond held by the weakest fetters
Your warmth, an empty embrace
Useless attempt to create a blaze

Black rain falls, a mighty wind blows
The sky becomes covered with hell
Evade the truth, continue on
The forlorn flame created in lies

Ignited in the soulless cavern
The spark lit the hollow hall
A dream now made has quickly died
Extinguished before it spread wide

Like a moth lead to the light
Lifelong senseless flight


The absence of your soul
Leaves me trapped in cold
The bond will never grow
My cave is forever lone


Black rain falls, a mighty wind blows
The sky becomes covered with hell
Evade the truth, continue on
The forlorn flame created in lies

Like a moth lead to the light
Lifelong senseless flight

Ignited in the soulless cavern
The spark lit the hollow hall
A dream now made has quickly died
Extinguished before it spread wide

Entire life spent searching for
A life of bliss that does not exist
Buried beneath the earth I’ll stay
Exhuming dreams that'll never be made

Refusing to submit to
A life that's filled with solitude
I grab on with my dying breath
You send me down unto my death
