1. At Tragic Heights

And the first went, and poured upon the earth; and there fell (…)
A grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast (…).

And the second angel poured out the vial upon the sea;
And it became as the blood of a dead man;
And every living soul died in the sea.

And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun;
And power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

And the seventh angel pured out his vial into the air;
And there came a great voice
Out the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying: It is done.
(Book Of Revelation #16, John)

At tragic heights
A failure pure
Surrender to nothing
But the truth
Fall now – endlessly
Into the ashes
And dare to know

At tragic heights
She hangs from the sky
A requiem played
In a broken heart

At tragic days
The height of truth
Trust no one but your own blood
Shade now – eternally into the hearts
And dare to be cruel

At tragic heights
She hangs from the sky
A requiem played
In a broken heart

At stars unborn
All has begun
At the shadow sun
Delirium

At tragic heights
She hangs from the sky
A requiem played
In a broken heart
In a rotten heart

2. Night Eternal

Come morning, chalice of dawn
To crown the Sufferer in their glory
Come for we are failing
Come for we are waiting
For we are trying to breathe

First in the skies, apocalypse
Only your fury can set us free
Come for we are failing
Come for we are waiting
For we are trying to breed

Night eternal, our world is burning
Bride eternal, our world is dying

Come forth, for we are blood
And to blood we shall return

[…And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus…]

Night eternal, our world is burning
Bride eternal, our world is dying

3. Shadow Sun

In your soul time
When you’re closing down
Shadow sun
Of the white sleep
Of death
I am standing still
In the blackest rain
Denying you
Breaking day

In the name of nothing
When we break apart
I will raise the dead
The chain of lies
I am freezing over
Crystal mountain clay
Cloud of darkness
Defeating pain

And then you fell
Becoming darkness
Shadow sun

Life is meaningless

4. Scorpion Flower

Curse the day, hail the night
Flower grown in the wild
In your empty heart
In the breast that feeds
Flower worn in the dark

Can I steal your mind for a while?
Can I stop your heart for a while?
Can I freeze your soul and your time?
Scorpion flower
Token of death
Ignite the skies with your eyes
And keep me away from your light

Surrender tears to your mortal act
Flower cursed be thy fruit
Of your courage last
Of your grand finale
Flower crushed in the ground
In your empty heart
In the breast that feeds
Flower worn in the dark

Can I steal your mind for a while?
Can I stop your heart for a while?
Can I freeze your soul and your time?

In your empty heart
In the breast that feeds
Flower worn in the dark

Can I steal your mind for a while?
Can I stop your heart for a while?
Can I freeze your soul and your time?
Scorpion flower
Token of death
Ignite the skies with your eyes

5. Moon In Mercury

Medusa caught in the mirror blade
Expression burnt in the waters red
Under her wing born all the same
No dreams of rising for the kind of Man
Moon in Mercury
Queen of the deeps in dust portrayed
The broken Heart never hesitate
Gone down the tree to draw the first blood

A revelation with every cut:
Infidel to all creeds
Breaker of all vows
Enemy of happy ends
Confident of the dead

Moon in Mercury
This is my body exhausted in a ring of fire
When you take it your eyes will be opened
Moon in Mercury

This is my flesh consumed by the ring of fire
When you taste it your eyes will be opened
Moon in Mercury
Red in the waters
Black in the mirrors

6. Hers Is The Twilight

From shadow born
Not a single reason
To go on
Darker days ahead
We forgot about
When too far gone

In her twilight time
Testimony of skin
A ghost in the rain
Cursing us by
In her twilight time

From shadow bound
What’s left of life?
Remains of the earth
That once we called home
But our hands expired

In her twilight time
Testimony of skin
A ghost in the rain
Cursing us by
Hers is the twilight

From shadows torn
We know it’s too late
Darker days arrived
Our times of plague

In her twilight time
Testimony of skin
A ghost in the rain
Cursing us by
Hers is the twilight

The scars of the earth
Won’t heal with light
These are twilight times
These are scars of mine

7. Dreamless (Lucifer And Lilith)

They thought that love was sacred
Until they met the desecrator
A sea of poison came in between them
And there was red on the ground below

They can not breed
Bound to never rise
Their lies will be repeated
Forever

Now they’re dreamless
Straight into the dark clouds
Never to come back

They thought there’s more
Than meets the eye
In face of beauty all men are blind
And the gates opened to let her through

They can not breed
Lost in the crimson skies
The nights in our heats
Will last forever

Now they’re dreamless
Straight into the dark clouds
Never to come back

Now they’re dreamless
Forever

8. Spring Of Rage

In our every moment
With our every breath
Even far away
Your eyes are ways
Disputing my darkness

In your darkest hour
With the dying sun
Preying all alone
Your lips the downfall
Colouring my days

As if in a spring of rage
Your fury and beauty would incarnate

In your every moment
Lays a cruel fate
Even from a distance
Your hands of doom
Disquieting my darkness

As if in a spring of rage
Your fury and beauty would incarnate

Release my pain

Widowed in the whiteness pure
Clouded captive by the Moon

As if in a spring of rage
Your fury and beauty would incarnate

9. First Light

Somewhere inside a soul
A shadow is taking over
My questions are being answered
An act of courage
My story is being told
Somewhere inside these four walls
Another war has begun

The prodigal Son came home tonight
To slay his father
And drink his blood

Noite eterna
Primeira vida
Ainda por revelar
Noite eterna
Primeira sombra
Ainda por revelar

With the violence of a first light

Somewhere in a rose of death
A leader is being followed
His cities are catching fire
But he doesn’t hear
His people screaming

Somewhere as the morning breaks
Steps are heard in the shattering glass
The bride to be returned to the feast
To make love end

Noite eterna
Primeira vida
Ainda por revelar
Noite eterna
Primeira sombra
Ainda por revelar

With the violence of a first light

Hordes of the Shadow Sun
Afire with the intuition
We are a race of sorrows beholding
The tear and the wear of the Earth
FIRST LIGHT, CURSED BE!

10. Age Of Mothers

Ours the rotten heart
Passing our mask of death on to our sons
We have become so deeply sad
Consigned to pain

Serpent among sisters
In the wake of invaded
I summon your rains to extinguish the fire
Burning inside men

In this age of mathers
In all the sleeps

Grief among brothers
Bled upon the streams
Fingernails closing upon the world of ancient
Bearing a new one

Pain when the time is of birth
Courage whenit’s time to inspire us
Our land is a woman whose perfect figure
We are not worth to touch

In this age of mothers
In all that sleeps
