Track Name: Blood Red Quill
A poet writes his last weeping words.
A storm gathers upon his weary head.
The nights of agony all end here.
His last words, a poem written in blood.
Track Name: Pain Eternal
The anxiety is rising
And never is to fade
Cannot erase the desire
or escape the emptiness
The pain drags forwards
It never seems to end
Wish I could leave it behind
But it trails me still

And as I open my heart,
I see the void that grows inside.
No pulse left to bring me life,
yet it still carries on.

Breathing deep to be free of hate,
I sow my heart shut and open my eyes
Cannot find a single living memory
in my old, decrepit mind.

So I live another day burdened
by trails of anger and hatred
I watch the moon fall
into an endless sea
I watch as all dies
but life never fades in me
Contracted to live forever
Chained to an empty promise

And as I open my heart,
I see the empty hole engulfed by flame.
I cannot break these bonds,
The demon's words whispered strong.

Breathing deep to be free of hate,
I sow my heart shut and open my eyes
Cannot find a single living memory
in my old, decrepit mind.

Words inscribed on walls forgotten,
Dragging forth past the end,
Nothing remains of what was,
But this man still carries his hate.
Track Name: Unloved
A beautiful creature rests in your eyes, a beat skips in your heart.
A palm drenched deep in sweat, words that can only be muttered.
A world painted in the tip of rose, with contempt for all emotion.
A failure to the beloved, a tree deflowered with falling leaves.

I can't hold on to know that
You will never be mine, so,
I must try to keep sane in
what life that I still grasp.

A many cuts on your body, a tarnish on the inside.
A crippled desire still rises, a want grows each & every day.
A burden for one, a world brimming with despair.
Another hour spent in purgatory, a haven no short of hell.

I can't hold on to know that
You will never be mine, so,
I must try to keep sane in
what life that I still grasp.

A winter you've bared, many days you've died.
A empty silence greeting you warm, another death passes you by.
A blood storm drenching the ground, a hurricane of sorrow.
A tear falls down your face, but still you carry on.

I can't hold on to know that
You will never be mine, so,
I must try to keep sane in
what life that I still grasp.

So what thirst that will never be quenched
What hunger never satisfied
What fire that never stops burning
What blood that never clots
Track Name: Jarring Desire
The eyes that stare at the shining sun,
The mouth that lies every word.
The ears taking in the silent whisper,
The heart inside that never beats.
The tears that fall endlessly never show,
and the blood never glazes their eyes.

I must commence this ritual again,
to let the blood fall.
I must empty this feeling,
To carry these wounds with hopeless desperation.

Hide your message to stop the spine chilling lies,
Bleed a million shattered hearts.
I need to scream these hackneyed words,
the dull, hard truth.
The forced silence brings torment to our minds,
Unforgiving and cold.
The desire pushes forth through the blackness.
The desire inside unworthy, bitter, jarring.

The courage to tell of a word shot down yet again,
Blood staining the walls of insanity.
To rise and put the knife in silently,
screams swallowed by the dark.
I walk the roads unpaved,
The world they walk unscathed.
The agony punishes all for eternity.

I must commence this ritual again,
To empty myself, to let the blood fall.
I must embrace the nights of restlessness,
To carry on with short hope of what may be.


Hide your message to stop the spine chilling lies,
Bleed a million shattered hearts.
I need to scream these hackneyed words,
the dull, hard truth.
The forced silence brings torment to our minds,
Unforgiving and cold.
The desire pushes forth through the blackness.
The desire inside unworthy, bitter, jarring.

All is said and done, the black truth is shown.
My dreams stripped away, but the voided passion grows.
There's nothing left for me, but all is left for you.
The walls painted another layer of blood.
The pain that all may know,
Yet the blood shall never show.

I must commence this ritual again,
to empty the blood of this vial.
Tonight marks the last night of bloodshed,
The night when all will fail.

Hide your message to stop the spine chilling lies,
Bleed a million shattered hearts.
I need to scream these hackneyed words,
the dull, hard truth.
The forced silence brings torment to our minds,
Unforgiving and cold.
The desire pushes forth through the blackness.
The desire inside unworthy, bitter, jarring.
