HOPLESSNESS is a spectacular song. Starting with a cello dirge that would have brought Shostakovich to tears, then an acoustic guitar and a real drummer(!), augment the sorrow, which leads to metal and vocals screamed to the heavens, and ending with an outro that burns ones soul. The sapling growing out of mankind's refuse on the Demo cover! Nature wins in the end..
Favorite track: Hopelessness.
I stand before the fall
the days are floating past
not even stirring
the threads of memory
The madness is the weal of life, I understand.
I live for I set free thyself from mind
I raise my hands
I spread my wings
For my last flight from the rock of all doomed.
The age has come to end but I still live
For I am nought.
Thy name is lost in darkness
where only shadows may read it on the gates of time.
The sand of life streams through my fingers
My cry could have broken the yarn of heaven
But words untold smother my breath.
I can do nothing I laugh to death...
Track Name: Hopelessness
In the dark
Among the luminous stones
You'll drink poison of loneliness
By observing, how your body expires in hope
You'll beg for forgiveness
But this not will happen.
In the silence
That more frightening than the screams of madmen
Someone says to you:
