1. ELEGANCE AND SIN

Heed the burning beckoning call
Sever those disgustful lies that bind
Come let your craving guide you to your kind
Let rapture and depravity lift you high
Into sin!

Feel the song of whips
The cold chains of liberty
Freedom on your knees
Perversion they could not believe

Be all that you have dreamt of
Beneath the sign of the rose
Yield to me delightful
Embrace the endless dark

I am chains
You are lace
We are skin
Gods of the radiant kind

I am pain
I am comfort
I’m ecstasy
Sworn to the silence we are complete

Let dark temptation guide you to our kind
Let hunger and your bravery lift you high
Perfectly flawed!

In this our luxoria
Elegance and wickedness
The sting and flesh
Pure artistry
All our flaws shine perfectly

Beyond the pale mundane
The oath of silence keep your secret safe
As you kneel delighted
To us the proud benighted few

I am chains
You are lace
And we are skin
Gods of the radiant kind

I am pain
I am comfort
I’m ecstasy
Sworn to the silence we are complete

The devastation
Of innocence and lies
The annihilation
Of borders and fear

Sweet salvation
Mortals made gods
Pure perversion
We rise as one
In flames

Sworn to silence celebrating trust
Worshipping our lust
Be all that you’ve dreamt of
Beneath the sign of the rose
Yield to me delightful
Embrace the endless dark

I am chains
You are lace
And we are skin
Gods of the radiant kind

I am pain
I am comfort
I’m ecstasy
Sworn to silence we are complete


2. SA TALTE YGG

I know that I hung on a windy tree
Nine long nights
Wounded with a spear
Dedicated to Oden
Myself to myself
On that tree of which no man knows
From where its roots run...


3. ASHEN ROOTS

Be it storm or scorching sun
Be it rain or snow
I stand tall

Be it peace or raging wars
Be it drought or flood
I stand tall
I am the world

I’m the eternal

Fraxinus Excelsior
I tower unbreakable
Fraxinus Excelsior
I stand fast unshakable

My roots burrow deep
I stood when time began
I reach the realm of men
I stand forever past the end
I reach the abode of gods
I am the sky and land
I touch the condemned
I obliterate and I amend

Without me nothing
I am the beginning and end
Without me nothing
I am the answer to any question

Fraxinus Excelsior
I hold the sky and the stars
Fraxinus Excelsior
I am the blood soaked earth

My roots burrow deep
I stood when time began
I reach the realm of men
I stand forever past the end
I reach the abode of gods
I am the sky and land
I touch the condemned
I obliterate and I amend

Mortal oaths have been sworn in my shade
And none would last...
Honour sold for gold
Kinsmen’ trust traded for glory and a song...

I do mourn
But never cry
Unbreakable

Without me nothing
I am the beginning and end
Without me nothing
I am the answer to any question

My roots burrow deep
I stood when time began
I reach the realm of men
I stand forever past the end
I reach the abode of gods
I am the sky and land
I touch the condemned
I obliterate and I amend


4. SHADOW WALKERS

As autumn comes
Cold is her breath
Of fire her colours
Of frost is her embrace
Silent are all angels
As she’s striding by
In her wake only snow
Pure and dead she rise

As the memory of summer stands aflame
Gone the warmth of a better yesterday
Facing the dawn, cold and alone
Dim the stars that shine so distant
Vain are we all, but no gods to judge us
For mourning times of hope and lesser hurt
Be it know that our kind will never die
We take but one step back into the shadows

As winter comes
Frozen are her lips
Of grey her colours
Deadly her embrace
Gone are all the angels
As she’s drifting by
In her wake but nothingness
All still as she rise

As the memory of summer stands aflame
Gone the warmth of a better yesterday
Facing the dawn, cold and alone
Dim the stars that shine so distant
Vain are we all, but whom to judge us
For mourning times of hope and lesser hurt
Be it know that our kind will never die
We take but one step back into the shadows


5. ALONG THE COLONNADES

Unloved the sun settles slowly
Upon this my realm where all colours have fled
Storms looming the bleak horizon
Black thunder draws close as I fall

I remember my blood aflame
A feverish dream from which I fell asleep
I could hear how the mountains sing
So evident and true, of balance and symmetry

My ashen skin falls like snow
Searing the flames of a truth so pure
Bare blood soaked feet
Illusion fades and enchantment takes its place

Rise to awake from slumber
Aflame like an evening sky
Evolved, at one with all
Now I see what was always so obscure

Never there shall be one, to whom I bow

From the slumber revived
Awakening dawn, opening eyes
A world clear, blooming as spring
Evident and lustrous, bursting with life
All past lies are cleansed
Only tomorrow and now still remain
Walking along the colonnades
Under the sun
New gods come alive

I was awake , But within a dream
I was aware but only of shadows’ play
I am reborn, I am renewed
I am the purest seed of vision
Walking along the colonnades
As if for the first time, I face the sun

From the slumber revived
Awakening dawn, opening eyes
A world clear, blooming as spring
Evident and lustrous, bursting with life
All past lies are cleansed
Only tomorrow and now still remain
Walking along the colonnades
Under the sun, New gods come alive

Footsteps dark and old, giants walked before me
Statues of perfection, monuments of inspiration, to me
Never there shall be one, to whom I bow

From the slumber revived
Awakening dawn, opening eyes
A world clear, blooming as spring
Evident and lustrous, bursting with life
All past lies are cleansed
Only tomorrow and now still remain
Walking along the colonnades
Under the sun
New gods come alive


6. OF THE SETTING SUN

Your past now stands aflame
Grey ruins line your empty roads
Barren dusty soils
The dead now claim these lands

I come with the setting sun
One of hope come undone
I am the one of shadows domain
Time pass yet I remain

I am near as life stands ablaze
The ashes you claim to be memories
Dust of what used to be
A vision only you can seek

I’m the dark in your lingering thought
The storm that will sweep your dreams away
I’m the one that will make you see
I am the loss, I am the key

I am eternal
I am close
I’m infernal
I am all ghosts
Of all choices wrongly made
Of all hurt ever inflicted

The loss

I shall open your eyes

I am the heart of all smitten lovers
A creature of all pain they felt
A shadow of all those betrayed
The ghastly beast, your past

One of hope come undone
Time pass yet I remain
I am near as life stands ablaze
The ashes you claim to be memories
Dust of what used to be
A vision only you can seek

I’m the dark in your lingering thought
The storm that will sweep your dreams away
I’m the one that will make you see
I am the loss, I am the key
I am the rider of the setting sun
The past
