Madder Mortem

The Grinding Silence

...and when the ocean washed me up
onto you shore, was I then saved?
Oh, loveable liar,
You whispered tales to me at night,
but how come you never gave them voice?.
 
Staring into enticing darkness,
you chose to close your eyes.
I could never have predicted this loss of self and time.
 
And I am crushed against your stone,
(Under the silence, the grinding silence).
 
...and yes, time will float by,
but never will it heal a single wound.
You cannot remake this,
You grind me to dust with your pain,
Now, will you let me have mine?.
 
And you, still standing there,
swept in your moth-eaten pride:
I never wanted this to be,
I never wanted this!.
 
And I am crushed against your stone,
(Under the silence, the grinding silence).
 

These Mortal Sins

Oh, it's really alluring,
These mortal sins of the flesh.
I never toy with amusement
And I have no time for repent.
 
Down over my head,
Silence, nothing unpleasant has been said.
 
Define me and touch me and kiss me,
Pretend I am your puppet on a string,
Pretend I am yours and fully tamed now,
What joy lies in these smallest, lawless sins.
 
Down over my head,
Silence, nothing unpleasant has been said.
 
Under this coating of caring
Awaits the manipulating self.
I never thought you could fool me
And my tears are already spent.
 

Traitor's Mark

I see myself through read, dead eyes,
I make myself this prison.
For Babylon the time has come,
This time I'm sure you'll listen.
 
This is the day,
(A given word).
This is the hour,
(was broken twice).
Nothing's forgiven and nothing
will even the score.
 
I hold my seed, a perfect hate,
I make this mask a weapon,
For every time I lied myself
a tenfold to your burden.
 
This is the day,
(A given word).
This is the hour,
(was broken twice).
Nothing's forgiven and nothing
will even the score.
 
No morning comes to tie my hands
in tired sleep.
The love I left to die alone
is all I keep.
 
My blood is silence in my veins,
It all ends here.
The final bond of innocence,
the last to tear.
 
The last bitter step,
Through ruins and dirt.
Only one deed remains:
To lay it all at your feet, dead.
 
I mark you red, a traitor's mark,
I name an 'M' for malice
For all those years I lived a lie,
One pound of flesh from your body.
 
This is the day,
(A given word).
This is the hour,
(was broken twice).
Nothing but ashes to mourn for.
 
I have betrayed
all that I am.
Nothing's forgiven and nothing
will even the score.
 

He Who Longed For The Stars

He who longed for the stars,
They would soothe him,
In this painful world, no one is spared.
He who longed for the stars,
Their icy silence,
Frozen eyes, just frozen, ice in his words.
 
Come down...
 
Where's the reason?
Who's to blame?
Well, my darling love, you left
just as unnoticed as you came.
 

Ten Times Defeat

A daring step,
The waiting crowd,
A hungry child
must learn to bow.
 
Yes, this is all the bitter truth,
The gritty sand beneath your feet ,
The taste of failure on your mouth,
This is a game of hurt.
 
Yes, this is all the bitter truth,
Yes, this is cold reality,
This is what you have come to.
 
Yes, this is all the bitter truth,
Yes, every gesture was in vain,
This game is harsh and you have lost.
You know it all comes down to this:
Pathetic lies and vanity,
The taste of sand inside your mouth.
 
A daring step,
The wanton smile,
A desperate man
Tells desperate lies.
 
Yes, this is all the bitter truth,
The gritty sand beneath your feet ,
The taste of failure on your mouth.
 

Under Another Moon

The mist has covered my eyes
And whispers of sleep in my ear.
The past has been swept off my hands
But I still remember your name.
 
So lull me to sleep in your arms,
Bestow your sweet kisses upon me,
'Cause this love is all that I have
And I'll never long for more.
 
Not going home...
 
Time floats and the worlds pass me by,
The air is thick and the moon has gone blind,
Mind set adrift and my feet touch no ground,
Banned from the dreamlands, I left all behind.
All is lost, it can't be found,
So weak here, I remember you,
I can never find my way back home.
 
Not going home...
 

4 Chambers

Chamber of the mourner,
Ashes of a morning mass.
Six feet of earth to lay,
On wooden home forever.
 
Chamber of the griever,
Hope of dawn cut away,
Bowing to defeat,
This time the path cut short.
 
Chamber of the sorrower,
Mausoleums closed in silence.
Work given to fulfil,
Let no one stand between.
 
Chamber of the dead,
Pleading spirits to awaken.
Build the gate, brick on brick,
There will be another key.
 
4 Chambers...
 

Turn The War On

Turn, turn,
Let the rosegrove burn,
Turn, turn,
Watch the flies and learn.
Turn, turn,
Grinding it down,
Turn, turn,
Make it go on.
 
Sleep tight, wait long,
Hold on, stay strong.
 
There is a beast within
And there's no peace without.
I speak the lie as true
And it has blinded you.
 
Sleep tight, wait long,
Hold on, stay strong.
 
Let the rosegrove burn,
Watch it all come down.
This is what I've earned,
Watch the flies and learn.
 
Thrown back in line,
(So now the war is on)
Thrown back in line,
(And now devotion's done)
Thrown back in line,
(So let revulsion on)
And now the vultures come.
 
Sleep tight,
Wait long,
Hold on,
Stay strong.
 
Turn, turn,
Let the rosegrove burn.
Turn, turn,
Watch the flies and learn.
 
Turn...
 

Head On Pillow

Head on pillow,
Hand and mouth like dust,
That softly, softly falls.
Spirit and flesh,
wait and see,
In time it all amounts to bone.
 

Ruby Red

Send him from this land, he's bleeding,
A display of pain worn as a crown.
 
Are you strong?
Are you worthy?
Are you pure?
Are you clean and wholesome?.
 
In his face the plea of mercy,
Like a child corroding to a man.
 
While the blood still flows he is enchanted,
Ruby red, the streak of hidden malice hides the smile.
 
Are you strong?
Are you worthy?
Are you pure?
Are you clean and wholesome?.
 
Oh, there's cancer?
Oh, there's mistrust?
Burn and cut, burn and cut.
 
There's nothing,
There's nothing here,
There was nothing before,
You don't know this.
 
Life can take you far, but this is further,
Once the lie is in, will he prove worth it?
Know...
 
(So we all give in)
 
No defence will stand through pity,
Powerless, kneeling before the bleeding heart.
