all Dark Tranquillity lyrics

Dreamlore Degenerate
For thou sweepst me
In thy robe of guilt
With garments forged
In spiteful steel
No tainted pride
Shall make conviction cease

None shall be unto thee proven
Worthy of thy outmost fear
Let aeons the silent longing
Instinct shun the ones you dear

As the hunter boldly stalks his
Conviction reign where truth might

Silence the bore
Shun the ones you dear

The hunt is over
So the feast begins
What feast is enduring
When all is said and done
Everchange of hearts

The hunter's reason fail
The hunt is treason

The hunt is over
So the feast begins
Why search for endurance
When all is said and done?back to top
Zodijackyl Light
Crown the impulse that deliberately fall
defeat in spiritless action
Isolation - burn the greenwood
order of the vertical path

crawl in the remnants of one thousand lies
torching a world that was left behind
Zodiackyl light

Cross the sharpest void
deride the embers of his faith
the bringer that on million horses ride

Waiting for the call within the spark of sin
ever reminiscent of the coming of storm
Can you see the cosmic face in which disorder lies

Burning of opression
the inventor
is the killing hand
Be that of the darkest sin
to frustrate hope and love

I shall not be blinded
I shall not be forced

feasting on debris from celestical wars

Burning in the sky
beyond the realm of time
Sequence of the nucleus
the glowing dust in flight
Zodijackal light

And they ride, they ride
the drama takes the lead
the beast of heaven their guide

Racing through the vastness
constellation disarray
that darkness could not have existed
that bares no witness to the light

Sweet endless
Perpetually pronge through interior vaults
So seamless
Joints of time cannot shackle the beast

Zodijackyl light.back to top
Enter suicidal angels;

How hungry have we become;
Like animals naked in shame
Fed with the hooves of apocalypse
That galloped down, disordered
Worlds behind

From word to a word I was led to
A word
That spanned over cultures in rage

Crimson masses, steeped in decadence
Holding our tongues to the thirsty
So, is the future still open?
Then enter, hornet, from our hive-dark
To draw down the end from within

We need not the horns
That emanate from our warty, haunted

Nihilist, hedon
The priceless art of their lives
Sorrow is a wing laid atop their
Skin deep, we carve our immeasurable
In the fold of your shivering arms

Your children wild
And filled with death

Jupiter in our unforgiving eyes;
A pandemonium of bodies and gold
Eager, as a part of your face
And the sickness attached to your
Skin (stone)
As the wine-rush,
Chargin from androgynous wombs
To open free the lid of pain

Rinsed in post-human shadows
A monument scorned by the teeth
Of time
Stale-faced keeper of secrets,
Leaded with implosive fire
The whore that carried the apostle
To the mating point on the graves
Of giants

We look at you, afraid
To see what we really are.back to top
Scythe, Rage and Roses
Fast fading roses
Non-lingering words
Scythe be my instrument
Through dreams I now rage

No guidance is me offered
No forgiveness thee is promised
Now can distance be a factor
When engraved in me thou art?

Nourished by the soul my flame
Shall serve to torch the earth

Denial serves me
Denial serves me right

That fire cannot burn
With flames of no origin
That star cannot bring guidance
Without force or form

One is darkness
The other silence
Without silence the darkness
Loses it's splendour

Sweet bliss that sleep now giveth
Tempt with forgetful night
Ever haunting that image within
Swear to the answers deniedback to top
With each daring new concept
Creation and form
One fragment of shelter
From heaven be torn

The bleeding through barriers
Shine of redemption
The taste of renewal
Let art once again be a weapon

The whim of the forger is theft
From the flow
The hatchet now redden, with creation's

Constant is forever

I am the creation
So bold in design
The errors of one thousand minds
Bleed out through a world gone

This is the magic that a name would stainback to top
Dissolution Factor Red
Drenched in the perfume of hell
Impasto of burning oils
Forming continents on my
Outstretched naked body,

Stains of shame
Stains of shame

Limbs that leave their nests of
To spin the reels of pain
Attach the nails and electrodes

And spin the reels again

Retreating hunger running through
The years
Carries the scorn on skeleton wings

Storm me thou with the sharpened
Swift hammer nails that pierce
The shoulder of time
Behind the sunset, with movement

For there lie shadows even farther
From the light

I run, devoid of motion,
Devoid of name
Attach the nails and electrodes
Black moratorium, haven of refuge
...back to top
Insanity's Crescendo
Gently hold our heads
Gently hold our heads on high

Aimless time in fear new hide
Overthrow the plan
Confusion lies in all my words
Mad is the soul

We barricade ourselves in holes
Of temperament
This is the dawning of a new age
A heart that beats the wrong way
Insanity's crescendo

Windcolour - second sight
A touch of silence and the violence
Of dark
Illusion span - the aroma of time
Shadowlife and the scent of nothingness

Infinite fall of instinct
Order of one spells deceit
Infinite lack of trust
Order of one obsolete

Oh escaping time is all we lost
When it's found, can judgement
Make amends?

From force-fed impressions
Let us mortify the mind
Each soul to violate
Each instinct to be rendered false

Torn asunder be the conventional
Forms and frames
Now for the blood of heaven
Unlearn and the cleansing comes

Felt a tremor in the pillars of
The senses
Cursed victim of a distance near
The first dream - the clearest

Aimlessly steer towards our night
We belong to thee
Oh dearest bliss, unnerving silence
Entangled within

Dimly begotten in clarity found
Virginlike tears for impurity bound
Beseech be who darken the stars
And the sky
To greet now this vision an emerald

Empty the sun - carve out the wind
Insanity's crescendo
Tear out the blinded eye

Lament of thunder - take comfort
In fear
Lightning veins in crude exterior
Voice the oppression - voice the
Lay down the law that made instinct

Escape now and revert
This cleansing rebirth
Torn asunder be
Affect me not: darkened vision
Insanity's crescendo

Grimly tread the footsteps torn
Rebellious stand the seeker tall
The thorn of insanity's hand
Take this darkened vision from
My sight

Nailed to the image of idnorance
Each soul to violate
For the blood of heavenback to top
Still Moving Sinews
No-one survives such an attack
And we all stood like monuments
Baring the nails in her back
Still moving sinews
In a graceful impression of life
Shyly the arms, shyly the breasts
Fold fear die

Ten fingers driven
Through the heart, through the
As I stare into those strange,
Magnetic eyes
And wonder: (for you/me)
Are there demons there?

I knew it all the time. the misanthropes
Were right to crucify themselves
In the
Need of a saviour. still moving
Struggle fearsome with a lifeline
Caught in the nest of the impending
Dark fate.

Semi-worlds, lifetight lodges
Where faces stiffen,
Plagued with the frost of disease
Our capsules barely meet

The worms of disorder
Like living black numbers
That drip from her pergament skin
Joined in sweet fury
To anoint the decay
Fragile and reddened in lifelost

Atom Heart 243.5
Still alive
All knowing eye
Beneath your stream of words
Your rapid stream of words
Though none will
Ever live to share
The radiant stream
The promised eyes
From which your picture fell

Re-seal the components from atom
Revert, non-owner of worlds

As uncommunication becomes the manifest
Our alien, architectural skeletons
In unison collapse

Death rode these silent caravans
And steered tem to the rim of the

Their diaries and withered letters
All devoted to the art of dying

The enterprise, academy
The crafts held in our hands
All devoted to the art of dying

No room to arrange
The final row of masks
Drenched in chameleon-ink
For the grand charade
The tongues that burn in you
The slowly altered language
That colonised your heartland
Advanced through broken doors
And they still believe in you

They seem to see
So many things
Hooked in your pestilent eye
Your stale lids, your iris punctured
By tongues licking a lie

The enterprise, wolvenlore
The cursed seeds of man
Plunged through the tunnels of
We reach out to move the landmark,
Hands seeping down from the chronicles
Of time
The quill now blunt
The scribe devouredback to top
Tidal Tantrum
Come death or dearling
The claws of the raven hold fast
Enticed and starving
A lustful revenge to the last

Unlight flood the seeker's eye

Come flame or false hope
Gifted in spirit as i
Forced upon freedom
Let impulse nor stillness be spared

Fierce tidal tantrum
Nourishing rapture within

Come feast or fire
Repellent in forceful defence
Unchained, forgiving to none
Solemn in swirling embraceback to top
Tongues, lost in me
Yours be the sharp and the vile
Glide neath my skin
Storm trough my nerves

I bury the nomad years
Hours in the earth
Couldn't exorcise these searing,
Peaking tongues
Immune you say
Yet venom stakes in strangest guises
Tongue, throat, tongue
Slayer of the word and stealer
Of vision

A monumental reign of terrors
Throats slit up to stain the target
We're food for the hounds of trauma,
Prey to the crows of stress

No power left to retrieve my stolen
Filtered though the illiterate
Fingers of death

Let sickness be poured
From the cupped hands of bedlam

On account of their brightness
I made friends with the word and
The moon
Went with the tide and left for
The sound
Of dead instruments thrown out
Of tune

The red square patterns, dragonrise
And evenclaw
Decoying from pandemonia syfometry

Let ring
A disgonant note in the music of
The spheres
The streak of promise in the nuclear
These whipping black tongues
Aching to lick me back to life
To inject their truths within meback to top
The Mind's Eye
Come and dance through my vanity's halls
Welcome to my exhibition
Ornaments fall
The fate of my art, condemned
And the creative seed
That grows to the tune of the harvest song
Embody my lifelong passion
Intertwine with the structures of my art
Those empty frames staring at me
One lonely portrait covers the lovestarved canvas
In honour of the birthless rebellion within me
Every picture holds a tale
Every shade tells of a thousand words
The artistry of living chaos
Is pictured in the poets tears
Because everything burns
The final concept
Is all but a thought away
Be gone, you foul enchantress of decay!
My thoughts and words will come to right
In my chamber where chaos conveys
Kneel down to my desire
Deep in the vaults of my carnal agony
Emptiness! Orchestration through colours
The gallery
To never return to my guidance
Burning my artback to top
