Draconian – Arcane Rain Fell Lyrics (2005)

1. A Scenery of Loss

The winds of a dying dream, a tempest unveiled
Once again arcane rain fell – cold, sorrowful and so frail
O, those weeping times, all of my life’s a lie
An endless torrent of anguished tears o behold me cry

The affliction of a stained creation becometh my tragedy
Lachrymose is the light – touching the buried again
O, this scenery of lost always present within me
Afar into the obscure I wish I now could soar

Even though he stole my pride – I stand above his lies
Even though I oceans cried – and sailed them far and wide…
…my star shall ever shine

Drifting endlessly deep in darkened streams
The inharmonious looms
In my doleful ocean lies the love I’ve lost…
…for heaven, my sorrow

Devour my soul as I enter the dark and cold
Fallen from heaven’s domains – god’s vengeance unfolds
This scenery of loss, a ruined empire of dismay
A pathway of decay leading afar and always astray

Even though he stole my pride – I stand above his lies
Even though I ocean cried – and sailed them far and wide…
…my star shall ever shine

“Homage he has from all – but none from me:
I battle it against his, as I battled in highest heaven – through all eternity
And the unfathomable gulfs of Hades, and the interminable realms of space
And the infinity of endless ages… all, all, will I dispute”

2. Daylight Misery

Deprived of my treasure, my “aye” to life
My piece of mind after sunset’s occurrence
Away I walk to ye doleful masquerade
My ravening and my words becometh aghast

The sun rises high, my feelings they die
Daylight misery… (leave me be)

Another day will go astray…
Another tear in this life so grey
If you ever saw me smile
You should know I felt sick inside

O, death, with my ebony cloak sublime
How abstract thy harvest rose doth fall
Consigned to the flames of woe in sweet modesty…
I renounce myself from the everdawn

No god is as cruel as god himself…
It’s time to show the true face
No life is as dead as life itself
This earthly realm imprisons my soul

Innocence raped in the sunrise
And I watch how the beauty dies

Another day will go astray…
Another tear in this life so grey
If you ever saw me smile
You should know I felt sick inside

Another day will go astray…
Another tear in this life so grey
If you ever saw me smile
You should know I felt sick inside

3. The Apostasy Canticle

When our flames were lit by chaos…
We knew not the grip, the bondage of light
Then he waved his sceptre, and cosmos was formed
Too late we knew our freedom was lost

He blinded us, polluted our minds and forced us to drink his blood

I will show the world god’s true face, I will let the thunder roar… forevermore
I’ve deceived his world, but regained paradise in the fire of my soul…
(But) in the death of the wind I sleep, as I wail this petrified landscape
Chaos, anguish… an optimum affection in the clarity of certainty… so empty

The voice of the dark souls:
“Mighty Lucifer – thou art the light that leads to darkness
As much as I praise thee, I love thee without praise…
As much as I love myself, I adore thee relentlessly
Thou art our true father, the wine of venus, the essence of our hope”

Death, solemn death of the reaper’s star, devour his legacy from afar
I fumble… live… I fall… die, isolated in the crowds of god… and suffering
In between lurks the everlasting absence… for my dark euphoria
Thence I am sovran created, like in heaven, myself… and I fell in fury

The indolence of solitude may drive out the soul of it’s sermon
And memory shall be lost to the blood hopelessly pulsates

The indolence of solitude may drive out the soul of it’s sermon
And memory shall be lost to the blood hopelessly pulsates…
…in our excruciating hearts

“Is this the region, this the soil, the clime
This the seat that we must change for heav’n
This mournful gloom for that celestial light?
Be it so, since he who now is sovran can dispose and bid what shall be right
Fardest from him is best whom reason hath equald
Force hath made supreme above his equals
Farewel happy fields hwere joy for ever dwells
Hail horrours, hail infernal world, and thou profoundess hell
Receive thy new possessor
One who brings a mind not to be chang’d by place or time”

In this abyss we shall be free
Here we shall celebrate the coming war

4. Expostulation

Adonai, Elohim, El Shaddai…
Thou hast become the father of lies
And I serve thee, henceforth… no more

Becoming thus the essence of sedition
The steadfast gleam of the unsheathed rapier
The falchion’s forceful thrust
At the heart of thy empire, the Adam Kadmon
To impart to knowledge – the cognizance – of thine

For this I slither in aspect through Eden’s gleanings
For this I bid cain slayeth his brother
For this I rend the weakest salient of thy diadem
As I, it’s jewel and very metal shall reflect no more
Your light – the light of enslavement
The essence of constancy and misaligned justice
To a multitude that knows no freedom..
Ignorant of how subtle the fetter tightens

They shall rise me a saviour – and crown thee a liar
For this I strike with balanced blade
And spit upon the throes of thine angels’ desire

5. Heaven Laid in Tears (Angels’ Lament)

Behold the skies, they’re full of lies… in disguise
Behold the skies, they’re full of lies… in disguise

O, creator, so long we have fallen to our knees
So long we have murdered our honor, while protecting thine

Behold the skies, they’re full of lies… in disguise
Behold the skies, they’re full of lies… in disguise

And we, warriors moulded in the blood of his vanity
The silent, loyal shepard who tends my light is dead… in me

So let the night take thee in her arms
And dry these tears into her embrace
It’s the end of pretending and defending…
God’s holy light

El-Shaddai, we serve thee, henceforth… no more

Show me heaven, show me guilt… embrace the pain
We must suffer to realize, we must despair again and again
No longer our knees we shall bend, no longer fold our frozen hands
We long for the darkness, our flames still burn for mother night…
Behold us now, as we cry, soon to die… to rise again

Behold the skies, they’re full of lies… in disguise
Behold the skies, they’re full of lies… hear our cries

I have seen us bathing in blood to defend his very glory
I have seen us kneel and praise for nothing…
I have seen him dying in our eyes
I have realized that god owes us his life

6. The Abhorrent Rays

As the delicate nightsky once again dies
The mist of dawn brought ruin and demise
Darkness dissolves, every dream withdraws
Returning into a world of shallowness and lies

This world is helpless…
I descent… I flee
To sympathize for their souls
You have to humanize me

Still the waning sun bleeds upon paradise…
On the morrow of war it shall not rise

This world is helpless…
I descent… I flee
To sympathize for their souls
You have to humanize me

Among the deficient humankind I’m concealed
A sad and fragile world never to be healed
My expression of grief towards the horizon wails
Alone and aimless on the oceans of sadness

“O, miserable sun, consign I will not
I shall not conjureth a false identity o’ my kind…
And thy lights dost not err nocturnal lovers affection
Pure love flies in the night
When thou hast sunken beneath god’s shameful world
Hiding in shame, while my spirit remains
My cradle will rock in e’ery place where lovers mourn
When night feeds ye troth o’longing withing e’ery fall’n star”

Here alone in this neverending maze
In the midst of everything there’s but a void to embrace
Never have I suffered as this within
Never has a greater woe in me assailed

See the angels’ cry…
In then eyes of mine

See the angels’ cry…
In then eyes of mine

7. The Everlasting Scar

Behold me now, I’m lost somehow
Summoned up in sorrow from a world beyond
Never let go my crimson rapture…
Can you touch my soul?

I see you in every shade
In every moment I breathe
You came as the silent wanderer
Travelling to distant shores

I am the life that learned to die
I have no choice, I’ve lost my voice
I am the tear who broke with fear
I won’t return, to death I turn

If humans were like swans
I could bear this burden with ease…
Never to witness this heartless disease
As the wounds of time neglect me

Walking the earth as the solitary reaper…
Dressed in the lost voices of time
I bathe in quiet waters of tearful shades
(And) I suffer in every corner of your sanctuary

Embrace me now, for I will die
The pain I feel inside will never leave
But never let go my crimson rapture…
Can you heal my soul?

8. Death, Come Near Me

By day I sleep, at night I weep!

O Death, come near me!
Be the one, for me, be the one, the one, who stays.
My rivers, are frozen, and mischosen,
and the shadows, around me, sickens my heart.

O Death, come near me,
and stay, by my side. Hear my silent, my silent cry!
In sadness, I’m veiled, to the cross, I am nailed,
and the pain, around me, freezes my world.

My cold world…

In life, I’ve failed, for years, I’ve wailed.
Frozen in time…
left behind…
The rapture, of grief, is all, to find…
The rapture, of grief, is all!

Behind the shadow of life, the lost hopes are grieving.
I seek the night, and hope to find love.
So I drown in the silence of life’s short eternity.
The tears fills the void in my heart, astray…

Embrace me now, delightful ease!
Give me a world of wondrous peace!

Calm the desperate scream in my heart!

O Death, come near me,
save me…
from this empty, cold, world!
O Life, you have killed me,
so spare me, from, this cauldron, of misery!

In life, I cry, away, I fly.
Chosen, to fall, within, these walls.
The rapture, of grief, is all, to find…
The rapture, of grief, is all!

Oh, shed a tear for the loss, of innocence,
for the forsaken spirits who aches… in us.
Cry for the heart who surrenders to pain,
for the solitude of those, left, behind!

Behold the pain and sorrow of the world,
dream of a place away from this nightmare.
Give us love and unity, under the heart of night.
O Death, come near us, and give us life!
