Track Name: A Death Painted Portrait
The summer days are over
They have turned a shade of grey
The nights are ever colder
And darkness guides my way

My morning hopes have withered
A rose in deathly gloom
Governed by despair
There is ash in the air

A death painted portrait
An exposé from within
A twisted shade of colors
As black as this damned night

I feel cold
No one to hold
The night is nigh
There is sorrow deep inside
I feel the light fade away
Colors void, there's only grey

I feel bleak
I'm all alone
Sometimes I hate
I hate myself
There is a fear
From deep within
Nothing's left
Here for me

Summer's gone

Bring me back
Lead me into warmth
Blow out the candles
And take me far away
The days are gone
And the sky is grey
Why must the colors fade away

Her portrait still gathers dust
And waits for another
To paint myself upon the canvas
The cold embrace of death

A hole within myself
A tomb so hollow and grim
I would throw myself to the darkness
And embrace all death had to give

I feel cold
No one to hold
The night is nigh
There is sorrow deep inside
I feel the light fade away
Colors void, there's only grey

I feel bleak
I'm all alone
Sometimes I hate
I hate myself
Bring me back
Lead me into warmth
Blow out the candles
And take me far away
Track Name: Empty
This emptiness is real
The harsh cold nights are growing longer
And the sun sets forever
Over my blackened heart
In this my final hour
I feel I do not understand
Why does the night hunger
For the emptiness inside my self

The sun sets in the dismal sky
The darkness creeps in through the fog
The silence reclaims this sullen night
And I am alone

There is a cold fog on my window
The bitter wind dances through the glass
The bleak night cries out for me
And it knows I am alone

The black night sky sheds a tear
And it then begins to cry
Death sings it's solemn song
And the emptiness is me

This emptiness is real
The harsh cold nights are growing longer
And the sun sets forever
Over my blackened heart
In this my final hour
I feel I do not understand
Why does the night hunger
For the emptiness inside my self
Track Name: Under The Midnight Moon
Chapter I: A Tear in the Night

You stole the light
And thrust me into
My inner thoughts
You tore the night
And made it rain
You with your serpent tongue
You showed me fright

A horde of clouds appear
And melancholy rains
I'm drifting through the depths of my mind
A hollow land of pain

Pale figures dance in the night
While the flames scar the earth
A bitter cold consumes the sun
And covers all in an icy gown
I feel the cold upon me
An eternal eclipse of the sun..

Chapter II: Reprieve from The Darkness

The sun is so bright
Its rays so warm
I'm floating now
In a sweet memory
I see her face
Her shining eyes
As I reach for her the sky turns grey
And all the color fades away
The darkness consumes the light
And I'm falling into..

Chapter III: Lapse into Misery

Hell
I'm breathing in a living hell
Bodies burn as I push ahead
Angels, fallen, I hear them cry
Their screams are my choir
I'm walking now, demons at my heels
I flee as they tear my flesh
I fall and watch them feast
They'll take me now..
Hell's hounds on my scent
Pale eyes hunt for me
I wish for death
They'll take me now..

Chapter IV: Hope Breathes

I return to you
I'm here again
Silence now..
I'm here with you
I'll never leave your side
You'll never be alone
For my name shall soon too be set in stone
