Peacewalker Very good. Horrific, ghostly atmosphere and interesting song's structure. The sound production maybe could be better but as an autoprod, it's forgivable, and the music in itself is excellent. Favorite track: The Fall (Deception Pt. II).

Track Name: Them
This I have witnessed
In my twilight dreams
Those feverish visions haunt me even when awake
Where all the colours have faded
Where feathers cut like knives
Where I am alone yet in company
Of something that is not sealed

And every time I awake in sweat and know it's just a dream
How I wish to return there, where my sanity escapes me
To release this devilish anxiety

In the flickering candlelight I can sense there's something beyond
As I hear the howling outside I know it has begun

Little comfort in these pills
I take to keep my mind at bay
Slipping towards the border
These dreams have taken over

And every time I fall asleep I question if it's just a dream
How I wish to escape and stay awake
No longer they stay away
Even in the light of the day

Inside these walls of my mind something has been born
Something that has taken me beyond to the point where insanity embraces me

Too long too stretched my mind is giving in
I have gone too deep too many times
I no longer know if I'm awake or in sleep

A distant sound awakes me from my tortured slumber
I hear a knock on my door but not once nor twice but thrice
Who dares to disturb me in the heart of night?
As I approach the door opens revealing being that sends chills down my spine
A figure alarming yet so charming
I try to reach out but the vision escapes me
I hear the chanting and awake to my own scream

Gasping for air I realize it was just another dream
But where did that sound I heard come from
I open the door and stare it eye to eye
How could a thing so miss-shaped be alive
I bar the door and escape back to my bedroom
Where the breeze takes out the last burning candle

Oh dear god
How I have feared and waited this moment
I hear the sound of shattering wood
This time I know I'm awake

All the lights have gone out
my room is dark and dim
I know they are near for I can hear them singing
Track Name: The Spectre
Seduced by her
Summoned to taste the forbidden
Inviting my dark fantasies to life
I embrace her
Biting the pain divine
Her Burning eyes locked on mine
As we dance thru space and time

Condemned to fall with a burning heart
To embrace the beauty and never depart
And yet still thru this night I passed
Alone With tearing feelings and a bitter laugh

Bringer of pleasure and pain
Take me into thy arms once more
Captured within this moment
Where fear and excitement entwine
As we dance thru space and time

To fulfill this play of dark passion
A scenery filled with both pain and desire
I bow my head and feel her enchanting caress
Inviting me deep within her body and soul

I yearn for thee once again
Open thineself and fall with me
And so she took me away
As if temptation dressed as an angel

Bringer of pleasure and pain
Take me into thy arms once more
Captured within this moment
Where fear and excitement entwine
As we dance thru space and time


Thee brought the fire upon my heart
And lead me in to the garden of delight
Track Name: Nightbringer
Sweetly I take you from your safe haven
To the stormy seas in which I roam free
I will not promise you hell nor heaven
But a place to rest your tired, aching soul

Come with me deeper away from the light
In it's glow you're nothing but blind
Take my hand, I will guide you through
I promise the pain and sadness will disappear

Lie down on my soft inviting bed
I promise no need to tears be shed
As long as you just stay quiet and still
I will cleanse you from all sin

Come with me deeper away from the light
In it's glow you're nothing but blind
Take my hand, I will guide you through
I promise the pain and sadness will disappear

My heart's raging beat
Will end that of yours
This is where I long to be
For this moment is ours

Stains of decay have been washed away
They needed to go tho some wished to stay
Angel of death with wings pure white
Bringing down the swift justice
Smiling to me on my mirror

The face on my mirror assures me
This is a way to set them free
And to find my own release...

Stains of decay have been washed away
They needed to go tho some wished to stay
Angel of death with wings pure white
Bringing down the swift justice
Smiling to me on my mirror

Come with me deeper away from the light
In it's glow you're nothing but blind
Take my hand, I will guide you through
I promise the pain and sadness will disappear

My heart's raging beat
Will end that of yours
This is where I long to be
For this moment is ours
Track Name: Tragedy
Now all this makes sense to me
The promises, the choices I made
Only lead me to damnation
Words Bitten by betrayer's blade

I abandoned my senses
Their laugh still haunts me
Scene was set by my will
Now I am crossing the border

Curse you who circle around me like vultures over pray
Waiting me to make my final mistake
Because of you I was introduced to this hell
Curse you all who I once adored

Parade of deceivers, clowns and whores
I now know I am now surrounded by fraud
This court has no sense of justice
I am prepared to cross the border

Screams of anger piercing this weak flesh
Echoes of laughter around me and the void beneath
I am slowly sucked deeper into the blackness

The light is slowly fading
I cannot see the faces but I feel the cuts on my skin
And all I can do is sigh

I am the hated painting
Spit on me if you please
Tear me off the wall like did those before you
Show me true violence, teach me how to fear
Don't let my forgiveness prevent you
Feel the rush when you end my pity life

Curse you who circle around me like vultures over pray
Waiting me to make my final mistake
Because of you I was introduced to this hell
Curse you all who I once adored

With my remaining strength I curse you
I never saw this coming
And here I lie, left to bleed to death

Curse you all who I once adored
Track Name: The Fall (Deception Pt. II)
The dusk descends like a crimson veil upon me
Green leaves loose their colour as the night
Grows deeper and darker every passing moment
And with dawn, nothing will be the same

I feel the cuts as if it had been me
The pain is stronger I could ever know
I hear the screams inside my head
I see their smiles but can't interfere

She did see the lust in their eyes
But could not realize
They wanted to taste her fear
Now she lays covered in her own blood

Through the catacombs under this burned ground
Among the withering leaves of life I gather
My remaining strength and I shalt prevail
Let them taste the fear and the pain
I was forced to endure

And as I fell into darkness fury filled my mind
And as they fell broken and torn the blood stained the memory

Who would have known I could wield such force
To tear down an entire house stained with shame

This truth could only be revealed by violence
And so their screams broke down the terrible wall of silence

A sudden realization what I had committed
My whole world burned into ashes, torn to pieces
What ill fate brought this misfortune upon me
And then I understand, that fool was no one but me

I see mirrors laughing, the walls are closing in
This nightmare in which I am dwelling slowly, steadily awakes me
Illusions fade, hopes, dreams crumble

The dying echo of these empty words
The dying ego of this empty corpse
Imitating and mocking emotions I myself laid in grave
So much pain, so much pain, caused again and again

Oh why I am here
Left alone under the marks of ancient wisdom and splendor
No place to hide from the one who took it all away
No forgiveness nor salvation for the wicked soul I carry inside

feel older than the trees themselves
That have seen more I will see
Tempted to drown myself among these leaves
May they bury me with their gentle sleep

This act was purely selfish
I wonder if anyone will ever even know what happened here
For what lies behind the veil of misty morning
We all see in a different light
