Stained lyrics by Imperanon
[Solos: A. Virta, A. Sihvonen] From the flames of a burned down heart, Ripped off and torn apart, Life to ashes and life to death, I twist the blade and take your breath In the twist of blade I feel, the passion to hate arising, Cruellest mind my thoughts are running through, Deepest fear no light shines on you! Son of no-one and breeder of fear, I'm coming to take you away, Shadow hearted, me, Wild One, Bringer of pain and darkest despair, I'm heading towards the day, That Yer last wish's to be done. Through my blade I live my life, Your salvation in flash of my knife. Til' the last drop I make you crawl, Ya good as dead so fear no more.
[Solos: A. Sihvonen, A. Virta] Reveal your source to me Hold your hands out for me To withdraw them in time The reasons become obscured These scars in my heart prove my undying affection The memories still so fresh remind me of my infection Heal not the wounds on me Let them remind of you These marks in my mind provide my eternal damnation The vile darkest within directs me to my destruction Heal not the pain in me Let it remind of you To withdraw everything in time The reasons become obscured The cruelty in my heart pulls me in to oblivion The memories, turned to dark, deny me from salvation Forever broken trust Excuses, lies and deception The memories turn to dust and truth is just an illusion, for me!
[Solos: A. Sihvonen, L. Koskenniemi, A. Sihvonen] Blinded by a betrayel scene, No one there to keep my trust All these serpents in my head, make me see what I must Scarred heart and wounded mind My own blood now stains my hands Fueled with rage, to stand and fight, I will be the last who stands Haunted by a murder scene, My weakness was my only hope Broken alliance, broken trust, From now on I live for myself Battered heart and hollow mind, My revenge became my world I regret not things I've done, Alone I stand, still I hurt I have no love for life anymore, I no longer believe in the world Put your life in the hands of another And you sure will lose it all I will not break down and crumble, Now that I've found my strength Show me the error of my ways, And I will laugh at your face I will not give in and stumble Now that I see right through you Try to make me change my way And I'll show you the reasons why
[Solos: L. Koskenniemi, A. Virta, A. Sihvonen] True freedom deep within, this agony is not a sin. Inside these walls I'm captured in. Blood dripping through my eyes, my life carries so many lies. Thou shall fall, who shall rise. If you see how these chains I have, make me feel like I was born to die. If you hear my voice screaming out loud, please come save me before it's too late. This soul is never sold, I keep only the trust of my own. My soul, my cell, I'm a prisoner in myself. Tonight oh, my lord so, I would like to flee from me. This isn't real! Take this pain away!
[Solos: L. Koskenniemi, A. Sihvonen] I am betrayed, all is lost in me Feeling cheated, my pain so overwhelming Can't you see, that you're dead to me? Don't you feel the pain inside of me? How have we come this far? How have I failed to see? I am sold, the world is lost in me Feeling no more, the numbness overtaking I am cold, draining the life from me Feeling so lost, is this the end of me? How have you made it this far? How have I been so blind? How have I come this far? Why do I feel this weak? Can this be the end of me? The end of everything?
[Solos: L. Koskenniemi] I followed the path, leading to wrath There was loss to see, all meant to be [Clean voice:] Eyes closed, I walk the miles Drown myself in the sea of lies Life ripped apart, so spare no-one Forsaken, I became unknown to some [Clean voice:] All my life, All my lie I had a reason, now you can See right through me That's who I am That's who I am, What I was and will be Is this Hollow Man In a moment, I left the sands Clenching my blackened hands Raging the road to my enemies
[Solos: A. Sihvonen & L. Koskenniemi, L. Koskenniemi] Cold sweat running down my skin This feeling I loathe, This feeling I craved To drown again in to emotional pain, To burn in the fire of misery Warm flames licking my skin Intense feeling of suffering My vision will fade, My heart will break Help me now, no, Please let me go! Pain so extreme as to cause writhing I'm convulsed by the agony. I'm alive yet, I wish I was dead, I close my eyes and take the dying breath. Pain, pain, go away, come back again another day. I can only escape it for a while, kill this pain, take it away. All my pain, all away and here it comes back again...
[Solos: A. Virta & L. Koskenniemi, A. Sihvonen, A. Virta & L. Koskenniemi] [Female voice:] As day turned to night, I saw the end approaching No hope for us, but yet our faith stays strong Kill them, hatred, flows inside my veins, This will be the end of our days All is lost but this blood will stain My hands, my heart. Die by my hand, all you hopeless ones Deep down, my heart, darkest blood it runs Through my veins its fire's burning bright, You won't live through the night [Female voice:] My eyes are blind, I won't survive Years ago my life was torment In the shadows I wait for my moment To take your life, to make you pay Under the cold moon you lay I care not for the emptiness inside For in the end of this night It will be gone, I will be whole Your blood to mend my broken soul [Female voice:] As day turned to night, I saw the end approaching No hope for us, but yet our faith stays strong No blade to take my life, no pain to make me suffer This was the end and yet our faith stays strong Air's filled with, air's filled with blood's scent, I won't live through the night. My heart is, my heart is dying, I won't live through another night!
[Solos: A. Sihvonen & A. Virta, Titus Hjelm] The old scars ripped open yet again See me falter and see me fall Watch me from the distance, sky growing darker Gripping reality as I feel I'm slipping away Every painful moment I bleed to fulfill the sky painted with blood deeper still Grey days and dark nights blending together It seems this pain was made to last forever Watch me from the cover, clouds getting darker Opening the wounds, letting my blood run wild The sun rises again to greet the pain To sear my flesh, to open my vein I waste no time for the madman's hope Every passing day feeling closer to the rope The ancient scars ripped open yet again I will falter but I won't fall Watch me from the shadows, Sky growing brighter Spilling the life that runs cold inside of me
Solos: A. Sihvonen, A. Virta] I've never walked this path before, I have never felt so cold. I've always wanted to lose control if I'm forced to believe to One. Looking through these lost eyes, I yearn to lose myself, Give me Your weakness, so I couln't go on. Last wish for hope, is lost and gone, Truth is dead, only silence is left. I have searched for You a few times, Fine wine is my blood. I'm too tired to travel alone too afraid of being scared. This endless night inside me, my heart has lost all will. No need to be saved by those, who want to bind my eyes. Observing through a broken mirror, my life has come to its end. Lost in the mind of insane, in the dreams of my fears. Loved by those who can only hate my, my love. The end is near my hate will flourish, With candle seas in my eyes.
